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.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.

      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
