What (non-legendary) substitute would you suggest for Mr.Boom if I don't it?

In terms of a direct replacement, Piloted Sky Golem is probably your best bet, but you can also try out 1 Tracking or 1 Glaivezooka, both work really well in the deck.

Now that the undertaker take only +1 in attack, there will be some changes?

I'm changing Snake Trap to Baron Riverdare for the Deathrattle stuff. As I don't have it. Seems legit? And I personally think Undertaker will still be good regardless the health drop.

I don't like Rivendare too much, the body itself is pretty weak and the Deathrattle effects aren't so huge in this deck apart from a couple of exceptions.

My initial reaction is that Hunter should still play Undertaker and just deal with the nerf. You still have the opportunity for Undertaker to deal a ton of damage if your opponent doesn't have the answer. In other decks like Priest though, there is basically no reason for Undertaker, since it was basically used as a trading tool instead of for face damage.

Every deck has been tested by multiple times-legendary rank player, so yes, I strongly believe in his skills. :)

That being said, one key card in this deck, Undertaker has recently been nerfed, which can easily affect your win ratio.

The only problem I have with this deck is that it seems to rely a lot on RNG to win games! If I draw a crappy hand & don't get a decent muligan, i feel like I'm kinda screwed because there is ZERO card draw in this deck the way you've listed it. I often find myself at card disadvantage.

I don't have 'Snake Trap' or 'Dr. Boom' so I substituted them with a 'Dire Wolf Alpha' and 'Stormwind Champion'. I figured the Champ would work well with Unleash the Hounds but I've had mixed results overall cuz the deck relies on having a decent hand in my opinion.

I decided to drop a knife juggler and added a Tracking instead. I've gone 1-0 so far. I would appreciate your thoughts/suggestions.

Tracking is totally fine, I'm sure you can find a better replacement for a big card than Stormwind though, even Boulderfist Ogre would probably do a better job.

I thought Stormwind would work well as a buff for "unleash the hounds" and even with the Savanah highmane dethrattle. Could you tell me why Boulderfist Ogre would be a good replacement? Is it because it's a stronger card in terms of attack, etc?

Basically Boulderfist comes down a turn earlier and is harder to remove. Since this deck is limited on card draw, you spend a lot of time just topdecking. You're not going to draw into powerful combinations of cards in the late game too often, since you'll be low on resources, so having a strong stand alone card like Boulderfist with better basic stats is better than Stormwind.

That's not to say Boulderfist is a great choice or anything, just illustrating the point that Stormwind is pretty weak in this deck. 

 

Honestly, if you don't have any appropriate big finisher cards, i'd just play a Houndmaster instead and not worry about trying to directly replace Boom.

Sottle, any suggestions on how to counter Control/Shadow Preists? I'm 3-7 against them with this deck. Actually I find it tough to defeat most control decks (1-3 vs Warriors also). This deck seems to run out of steam against them and obviosly the lack of card draw doesn't help during longer games.

Priests and Warriors are two of the worst matchups for this deck. You basically need to draw into most of your decent mid-range or late-game minions to be successful. You can try to Mulligan for a slightly higher curve that has Animal Companions and Shredder in it, to make sure you have some timely plays that are actually threatening. Those two classes in particular are just too well equipped at dealing with numerous small minions.

Greetings,

Just wondering if there might be a spot for Gahz'rilla in this deck?? Just opened up a pack with him in it and would like to utilize him without going completely for a control oriented deck.

 

Thank you in advance!

Unfortunately not, Gahz is just too slow, and without a deck specifically built to activate his ability, he doesn't work out too well.

Hello,

thanks for nice deck and i have some questions for you. Which cards will be the best replacement for Dr Boom and Snake Trap ( i still dont have it ). I have some legendary cards like Caine Bloodhood and all from Naxx. Epics like Big Game Hunter, Faceless Manipulator. I want to ask about other thing aswell, what if i want to use 2 x Lepper Gnomes instead of 2 x Clockwork Gnomes is not much efficient?

 

PS. Sorry for my English :)

Clockwork Gnome vs Leper Gnome is a close call, usually the Spare Part is worth more than the 2 damage, but replacing them will be fine.

 

You can just sub one Explosive Trap for the Snakes. As for Boom, any other big finisher card will do ok in the same spot, but if you don't have access to any of the big impactful Legendaries, then just subbing in a Houndmaster or Sludge Belcher will be ok.

Thanks for this very nice deck, which I'm enjoying playing (for the most part, except when I run out of steam or have a bad draw and get overwhelmed in the late game, which seems to happen more often that I would like wink.png . I'm experimenting with a couple of tweaks, namely: 1. I replaced one Freezing Trap with an Explosive Trap to help deal with opponents who play a lot of low-value minions (so far, so good with that one); 2. I replaced one Mad Scientist with a Kezan Mystic for two reasons: a. I was finding that often I would draw both Scientists *and* all my secrets fairly early, thereby lessening the value of the Scientists; b. the Mystic is highly specialized but invaluable when playing Mages who use lots of secrets (even stealing one Duplicate can be a huge help--I mulligan it otherwise if it comes up in the initial draw). But the deck is a lot of fun to play, so thanks!

Thanks for all the advice Sottle! I have enough dust to craft a Snake Trap now but i've had decent sucess without it (Rank 14 currently). Do you think adding a snake trap in place of a Dire Wolf Alpha would strengthen this deck?

Current Deck:
Tracking
Clockwork knome x2
Undertaker x2
Webspinner x2
Freezing Trap x2
Dire Wolf Alpha
Haunted Creeper x2
Ironbeak Owl
Knife Juggler x2
Mad Scientist
Eaglehorn Bow x2
Animal Companion x2
Kill Command x2
Unleash the Hounds x2
Houndmaster
Piloted Shredder x2

Loatheb
Savannah Highmane x2

To both of you, definitely play 2 Mad Scientists, that card is absurd and should be an auto-include 2-of.

 

Kevin, yes I would play three traps.

Why don't you use only 1 Mad Scientist instead of 2? That way you'll have a decent enough chance of actually activating the Deathrattle and getting a secret. I like the Kezan Mystic idea...it's probably only a meta-specific addition though imo. i personally would only do it in a Mage/Pally/Hunter dominated meta, otherwise I'd take my chances without it. Let's see what Sottle has to say about it though.

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
