Overall this is quite a nice deck. I tried it and it has a pretty decent plays and a good win ratio.

The only thing that I would recomment is that you changed the Bloodfen Raptors, they are pretty bad - they are simply outshined by other 3/2 that also have abilities like Armany Berserker.

In my deck(I have a few commons and rares) I swaped them with a Raidleader and an Imp Master(works really well if they haven't played anything on turn 1 to do: voidwalker turn 1, then coin into Imp Master for turn 2 and then at turn 3 play Raid Leader for quite some damage and some major threats on the board).

I also swapped the Elven archer for another Storwind Champion for more late game presense.

Again, I think this is a pretty good beginners deck. Really pleased by it. smile.png

Thank you for the nice words. The reason why you see the Bloodfen Raptors in there instead of other, better cards like the Amani Berserker is that this deck is made out of basic cards entirely. We did it this way so that it would be accessible to literally anyone. Naturally, doing it this way you miss out on some really good cards, some of which are actually easy (and important) to craft (like Spellbreakers).

 

In the (hopefully very near) future, we're going to expand a lot on these decks, giving people hints as to what cards to craft first, as well as giving some sort of rating/analysis of the existing cards. This should allow players to make their own informed decisions as to what cards to swap into the decks to make them better, based on the cards they actually have (or can craft).

Great new presentation format with the tables, the Naxx icon and how far a deck could get you. The more detailed descriptions and different matchup advice like on the Handlocks are quite useful too.

 

Thanks.

The Legendary Demonlock deck by Sottle posted 3/2 is very underwhelming and needs work. At best I've averaged a 33%-25% win ratio. It's not strong enough to take board control and trying to maintain control if you get it is very draw dependent. By the time you have the mana and cards needed to start doing damage it's too late to do anything that could salvage a win.

The meta changes from aggro to control and reverse, every day. While it might not be the best in the aggro meta, it's definitely a viable choice. Reworking every single deck to fit the meta would be very hard, I'd rather suggest looking for another deck that can counter the current meta.

Handlock for control. Demonlock is a midrange deck. I suggest handlock because it is cheaper and quite more consistent.

Which players have got high legend with it? As far as i've seen, the people that have tried it have achieved less than stellar winrates (55%ish at best). It's a deck that i'll cover at some point, but I don't feel like it's strong unless there's been some breakthrough that i've missed.

Perhaps he is referring to the crafting guide being updated for Standard/ToG

The Warlock crafting guide DOES need an update for standard format in my opinion. A number of the cards suggested in the crafting guide are Naxx and GvG. While I appreciate your additions positiv2, the additions alone are a very incomplete look at the Standard meta.

      YouTuber, Disguised Toast, is never far from the front of Hearthstone science, and his latest video is spectacular. This video investigates the strange interactions caused by Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle.
      Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle seems simple enough, it reads: Shuffle this minion into your opponent's deck. However, when tested by Disguised Toast, it turns out that even this simple looking text can result in rather odd results. The ordering of other Deathrattles on the board, and effects by other cards on Deathrattles is what makes it so unpredictable. Take a look for yourself!
      The fact your deck displays as full, no matter how many cards left, is probably the strangest interaction of all. Even Toast doesn't  attempt to describe how that one happens.

      Blizzard have updated the breakdown of the amount each gang's classes are being played.
      On their Gadgetzan page, there is an infographic showing who controls the town of Gadgetzan today. The percentages are worked out by how often each class is being used. Even with the huge amount of Pirate Warrior on ladder at the moment, the Grimy Goons are unable to control the city! That honour goes, currently, to the Kabal. With people having success with Reno Warlock AND Reno Priest, it will be fun to see if they hold that position in the coming days.

      So I got a lot of jade cards for druid and neutral in the 15-20 packs I've opened, and I wanted to make a jade druid deck, right? But I'm poor, so I look up "Jade Druid Budget Deck". I find one on this site with the following deck list:
       
      2x Innervate 2x Jade Idol MSG 2x Living Roots TGT 2x Raven Idol LoE 2x Wild Growth 2x Wrath 2x Feral Rage TOG 2x Jade Blossom MSG 2x Swipe 2x Nourish 2x Jade Behemoth MSG 2x Jade Spirit MSG 2x Azure Drake 2x Gadgetzan Auctioneer 2x Arcane Giant Kara But I don't have Raven Idol. Or nourish, though I can just craft that since it's in classic. So can anyone suggest an option for replacing the raven idols? I don't want to get all of League of Explorers just to play with it for a month then watch it turn to dust so I can craft other cards for decks in standard. I have one branch, but that's it. I was thinking maybe 1 jeweled scarab, though I know that card is frowned upon for reasons I've never been made aware of, for flexibility, and a loot hoarder for pure draw.
