I am sorry man but in this meta. It is impossible to climb in ranks. If you dont draw some low cost minions on turn 1-2. If you dont, you are screwed.

You can use another deck to adapt to the meta, then? :)

Uh, that's why there's a Mulligan process? You get a pretty good level of control over what's in your opening hand.

Really sweet deck! Having trouble vs. paladin quartermaster and opted for a mass dispel in place of 1 clockwork gnome. Not sure if this is just a stupid move, or if a second holy nova is better?

In the mulligan section of both the full-budget and the low-budget versions of this deck, "Shadowbomber" is mentioned (and linked) instead of "Shadowboxer"...

Reacting to something that is giving you trouble and making changes is never a stupid move. I personally don't think Mass Dispel will show too much value, but if it works for you, let us know!

Tested in myself in Legend last season with a favourable winrate. Zetalot who is widely considered one of the top Priest players in the World was also using very similar lists towards the end of last season in Legend rank.

If you can't get past Rank 15 with this list, the problem lies with you. There's more to the game than just putting the right cards in your deck.

Hello i have been playing this deck and i would like to ask why not tinkertown tec instead of spider tank? Against mech mages my spider tank often loses to their tinkertown tec.

ive been playing with this deck and got to rank 12 then started losing, traded a spider tank for a tinker tech because i was having trouble with preists and mages and replaced mind control with kel'thuzad because he lets you keep board control late game which i found this deck fell off and i finished my climb without to much trouble. cheers all hope this helps

This tempo deck is really really great. I only have one issue with it, although it may just be my playstyle.

 

I really dislike clockwork gnome. Every time I play it, it either gets mortal coiled or fireblasted, or otherwise killed off, so I swapped it with a shadow word pain and a tinkertown technician. are the clockwork gnomes essential?

Why the drakes?

Read the deck description:

 

Your mid-game also contains numerous other cards in order to maintain the tempo strategy of this deck. Azure Drake is great for digging deeper into your deck and ensuring that you always have strong options in your hand to maintain your advantage.

Considering there's only 3 spell dmg cards in the deck, isnt it a waste to have so many +spell dmg cards (2 velens chosen, 2 drakes)? 

I seem to have trouble even getting past rank 15 with this deck.

Why are you talking about Spell Damage in response to a quote that doesn't mention it at all? Drake is mostly just used to drop a decent sized minion on the board and making sure that you have enough resources to keep going, sometimes the Spell Damage is a nice bonus, that's all.

Which deck this one or Legendary Priest Control would you favor?

 

Keep in mind that I also mean for the card swaps as well as I can switch out the MC for Boom for this deck and the other swaps for Legendary Priest Control.

 

Thanks Sottle, I have been using your guides since season 2; much appreciated!

      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.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      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)

      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.
      Daxxarri
      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)
