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.

What about Demonwrath? It seems useful, like a 2nd Hellfiire.

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. ^^

Right, Alexstrasza is often used as an offensive tool in this deck.

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.

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi

      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      The Mage Legendary from Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed, and it is called Sindragosa. It is the seventeenth card to be revealed from the upcoming expansion.
      Sindragosa is an interesting card, and a difficult one to evaluate. It is also worth noting that it is a Dragon.

      Sindragosa provides plenty of value. It is a very slow minion, but we have recently seen with Medivh, the Guardian, that slow value is very playable in the correct deck. Value Mage has been a feature of the Journey to Un'Goro meta under various names, and there is no reason to believe that will change after Knights of the Frozen Throne is released. The main obstacle to it seeing play will be the competition from cards such as Archmage Antonidas and Medivh, and whether there are enough slots available in decks for multiple high Mana cards. 
      This is a card that we can expect to be tested on multiple live streams in the early days of the expansion. At the very least, it is another card that will allow people with smaller collections to play with some of the most powerful cards in the game. What Sindragosa's future is beyond that, is difficult to predict. Feel free to post your predictions in this thread!
      For a list of all of the cards spoiled so far, as well as all of the information about Knights of the Frozen Throne, check out our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.

      The latest new card to be revealed is a Rogue Common, Vampiric Poison. It is the sixteenth card to be revealed so far.
      Vampiric Poison uses the new keyword Lifesteal. Lifesteal heals the hero for an amount equal to damage done, in the same way as Wickerflame Burnbristle.

      In a vacuum, it seems that this card is not very good. Health totals tend to be a long way behind tempo gain in terms of how important they are to a deck, and playing Vampiric Poison will often throw away a card for no gain in tempo. When put into context of the current meta, Rogue does need a heal fairly urgently. Unfortunately Vampiric Poison is only an effective heal when put on a weapon with either high attack, or with high durability, and current rogue decks play neither.  Anyone looking to try to make this card work would do well to consider Assassin's Blade and work from there.
