Hi. The following paragraph in the "card swaps" section should be removed, since in the low-budget deck the only craftable legendary left is Antonidas.. ;-)

 

"If you do not have access to some of the Legendary cards featured in the deck, you can use Sunwalker, Loatheb, a second Fireball, or Unstable Portal to replace them. The exception to this is Archmage Antonidas which is crucial to the deck."

Is there any explanation why there is a icy barrier as second secret set? Why dont you reccomend any other secrets or this deckbuild?

The deck is all about survival and outlasting the opponent. Ice Barrier provides you with some early security against aggressive decks like Hunter and Mage until you can start to clear their board.

Good deck, although I just can't play Zombie chow properly. So I replaced it with Dragon egg, which you can trigger yourself as well, and works with aoe. And the Mad scientist is too unpredictable I think. And since you're supposed to play it later in the game, chances are that your secrets are already in your hand so it's of no good use then .....

In the end I put 2 Nerubian eggs and (still experimenting) instead.

What do you think?

To be perfectly honest, both of those changes sound completely terrible to me. Dragon Egg does nothing to thwart early Aggro, which is the point of Zombie Chow, and Mad Scientist is simply one of the most powerful cards in the game, and is an auto-include in any deck with Secrets.

Is there any videos of you using this deck? I have created this deck and been using it for a few weeks and can not seem to rank up past 16.

This is not a deck i play commonly, as mentioned in the guide, I got it from my friend and former team mate Exploding Cow. He did use the deck to get to the final of the UK's biggest Hearthstone LAN, but I unfortunately cannot find the video of the final on youtube :(

This deck is a joke. Hardly can get past rank 17 with this one.

The guy who made the deck has made finals of big LANs with it, and qualified through big open brackets to reach Gfinity live events with it. You can't get past rank 17.

I wonder what the problem is? :P

Been playing this deck and it's fun to play with. Had some proper nail biters with an ice barrier popping on 1 hp! Managed to slog it out and win in the end.

In response to the other guy, just hit rank 15 with only one loss so far so definately able to get up the ranks with this

What about changing 1 or 2 ice barrier to ice block? smile.png

Ice Block isn't helpful, just getting one more turn doesn't do anything in this deck. Ice Block is for decks that need that guaranteed extra turn to activate some sort of winning combo, like Freeze Mage.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
