Don't you think Emperor Thaurissan should be added to this deck? Maybe instead of a sludge belcher, since the emperor is a must kill for your opponent, which makes it sort of a taunt.

As I don't own an alexstraza I substituted that for jarraxus. If you don't have alex then I suggest you do the same. He has saved my bacon on quite a few occasions... Just thought I'd share my results from this swap.

The problem with this swap is, that Jaraxus can only set your health to 15, but not the enemy hero's. ^^

I would replace Twilight drakes with Mistresses of Pains as you don't always have that many cards in your hand when playing with this. I also would include demonheart to buff those Mistresses and imps from implosions (you could replace one owl for this)

I also might swap one zombie chow to voidwalker for extra synergies.

 

Also swapping the black knight to twisting nether might work especially in this dr.boom meta.

That's basically turning the deck into more of a Demonlock build, which is fine, but not the idea of this deck. Meshing two styles of decks together generally just leads to deck that underperforms in both areas.

I played this Deck now for quite some time and its really one of the most amusing Decks I've ever played. So thanks for the idea and inspiration.

 

But I had made some changes after realising some issues with [imp-losion]. I found myself often in a situation, where I have to remove a 3 or 4 thoughness creature with [imp-losion] as my only removal in my hand and than loose the game, because of...well...bad luck of only hitting for 2.

For me it seems to unreliable, so I changed [imp-losion] for [shadow Bolt]. It costs one mana less and deals 4 damage all the time. The value of a bunch of Imps seems not high enough (at least in this deck), to justify the occasionally 2-damage-hits.

 

Then I tried some other cards and had some pretty good experience with them. First [Emperor Thaurissan] works great. He speeds up the combo or gives you the opportunity to play additional cards in the same turn you slam down your 24-damage-combo. (I run him instead of the [The Black Knight]).

 

The second is [Twisting Nether], which won me several games. I found myself struggling in lategame, missing the last combo-piece, against a growing board of my enemy, because i ran out of removal. So [Twisting Nether] resets the board again, buing some time to find the last combo-piece or deal the missing damage.

      Dave Kosak is here in the latest Hearthside Chat video to talk about the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. He also revealed two Priest cards: the Loa of Death, Bwonsamdi, and his Spirit!
      If you haven't played Battle for Azeroth, the latest WoW expansion, then this video is going to be helpful in understanding the backstory of Rastakhan's Rumble:
      The two Priest cards revealed in the video synergise very well with each other:

      As Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden mentioned in their r/Hearthstone interview, Spirits are meant to be build-around cards and this is pretty apparent with Spirit of the Dead. Apart from the obvious synergy with Bwonsamdi, the Priest Spirit can work wonders in a Clone Priest deck along with Zerek's Cloning Gallery. Spirit of the Dead can also find a spot in other archetypes like Resurrect, Big and Deathrattle Priest. The card itself is quite slow and requires some setting-up, but it looks very versatile.

      Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death, can be used simiply to draw Spirit of the Dead, then you can kill him while the Spirit is up and shuffle him back to your deck. It's easy to see the Spirit work without Bwonsamdi, but the opposite - Bwonsamdi working without his Spirit - looks like a slim possibility. Given that all Class cards in this expansion are designed to work as a "team", we might see a card (apart from the Spirit) that can make Bwonsamdi more viable. Otherwise, the Hunter Quest never really caught on, so why would it work in a traditionally anti-aggro class like Priest?

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week and the rules are simple: both players get to have two turns, instead of one.
      This starts from the very beginning of the game, therefore giving a big advantage to Player 1. Don't be surprised if your opponent concedes when he/she finds out that he/she has to go second (or if you have to do it)!
      Doomsayer is a must-have on this Tavern Brawl, since it clears the board immediately. Flappy Bird is also a useful card and Aggro decks are generally favoured. OTK decks also can work great since you have two turns to set up your... one-turn kill. You can also experiment with Open the Waygate and Temporus; both cards work and they give you a third turn!

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.
