Gadgetzan Jouster is actually better than Zombie Chow for control decks, such as ramp druid and control warrior. Since the chance that you take the other Jouster from your deck is really, really small, it will be always a 2/3 against aggro (the reason you would add Zombie Chow in your deck). But, contrary to Chow, he is not a dead card in your hand if you draw it late. For this reason, adding two of it is not counter-productive as is adding two Zombie Chows.

Nope.

 

If you do the maths, you'll see that a high curve control deck only wins a joust with between 60 and 70% consistency against even a deck like Hybrid Hunter which is essentially just aggression with a couple of Highmanes thrown in.

 

Even taking the extreme example of outright Control Warrior vs outright Face Hunter you're still only 80% favoured. Why take the risk? Their health is not a relevant part of the win condition, only yours is, and playing a 1/2 on turn 1 is just going to get you killed.

 

Even worse when you start to scale things down further, if you're playing a Control deck vs a Midrange deck like Mid Pally, you're now only 50-55% favoured. That's awful! What happens when you play your turn 1 1/2, and they respond with a 2/3 Chow. I'll tell you what, you lose the board straight away and probably lose the game.

 

Not worth the risk, just play Chow.

Clockwork Gnome's description refers to Spare parts has "another 1-mana card that can be played with Undertaker"... Undertaker only triggers when you play minions, not spells. You could mention that legendary card that gives a Mech every time you play a 1-mana spell.

Thanks. I have no idea what I was even thinking when I wrote that, but obviously Undertaker is not what I meant. Surprised someone hasn't caught that already. Thank you!

You wrote, "Young Dragonhawk is very really seen in Constructed". I think you meant that it is very rarely seen in Constructed. Anyway, thanks for the great work!

In the Arena section of Arcane Anomaly:
"Having some 1 Mana minions in your deck can be important to be allow you to take the initiative"
Some work needs to be done on that part of the sentence, I'm not sure what, but it's difficult to read.

Murloc Tidecaller's and Grimscale Oracle's images still have the old text. I'm not sure if their description should be changed considering the new effects and the potential upcoming Murloc support, but the images should definitely be changed to have the new text.

      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.
