Hi,

I am thinking to build this deck, but with some modifications, and I would like to know your opinion.

So, the modifications are:

-1: Tinkertown Technician

-1: Mechanical Yeti

+2: Harvest Golem

Because Harvest can combine with Powermace and Mechwarper.

 

And I am thinking in including Loatheb, by which card should I change it?

Seems fine, i'm not sure I like having no Tinkertowns in the deck though. Loatheb would be a nice inclusion, but the deck is pretty tight at the moment, so i'm not sure there's room for it. You could potentially cut Black Knight if you're not facing a lot of Druid.

First off I got to say I love the deck. A lot of fun to play and very powerful. Is there any other good legendary cards that can go into this deck aside from the black knight? It just feels really situational, and I don't really face up against very many people carrying taunt, and when I do I can take them out rather quick.

As Sottle said above you can inclued Loateb in that case.

i dont have black night nor Dr.boom, so i wonder about Loatheb or Hex for the black night, and for Dr.boom i was thinking about Sky Piloted shredder, what do you think about these ?

Sky Piloted and Loatheb are good replacements to almost all legenedaries - I mean some legendaries are just for power, like Boom here or in Mech Mage, but some are integral part of the engine, like Tyrion in Paly or Legendaries in Tempo Mage. In first case you can easily replace those cards by something that grants you power in late game, in second situation you should really.change the deck or craft required Legends. Here is the first case, so shredder will do its job.

 

As for Black Night you should really go with Hex or second Lava Burst, because  BN has slightly different role than Boom. It's here to remove treats aggro mech decks generally have problems with, like Belcher or Tyrion. So Loatheb or Shredder won't help here, but Hex and Burst will. BGH or  silencer like Spellbreaker wolnd't be bad either depending on meta.

 

If you don't have legendaries the best thing to do is probably:

-2 Legendaries

+1 Hex

+1 Shredder/Loatheb

Warrior in general, both variants - fast Grim Patron deck and Control - are good against this. Freeze Mage generally wrecks it as well. As for Face Hunter and Mech Mage it depends on start, whether you are able to counter fast aggression and take initative, but in general those two consider mech shaman as their favoured match-up and most of the time they should win.

With a bit of playing around, I found that Windspeaker is a really good card to include in this deck, I believe I replaced it with Doomhammer because I really dislike that card. Windspeaker can buff a Powermace'd unit and you can end the game rather quickly with that alone.

This is a really awesome deck build, I was in the top 9% of players using a deck similar to this. I didn't have BKM, and when I first started using this, I didn't have Dr. Boom. The deck is still super effective without it. If you have it, Al'Akir can fill in well for BKM/Boom. Also, Argent Commander is usable in this deck (he can be considered the cheap alternative to Al'Akir). You can slide him in next to a Flametongue Totem, buff him with Rockbiter (a good seven mana finisher), and he's not horrible at removing something in a jam (he can remove most taunts essentially scot free). 

 

Btw, the most important cards in this deck are Rockbiter Weapon, Crackle, and obviously Mechwarper. Rockbiter has tremendous synergy in this deck. With Doomhammer, Whirling Zap-o-matic, and in my case Al'Akir. He can even be used with with your Powermace in a pinch. Crackle is really important for a kill shot. Mechwarper needs no explanation.

 

Powermace is super important too. It can buff a minion as part of a finishing blow, and it also keep irritating minions off the board.

-2 azures +2 enhance o mechano is way better for this list. the cycle is nice from drakes but this deck doesn't benefit much from the spell damage component; mechano on the other hand; locks in wins quite easily from evenly matched board states

Love this deck; blasted up from 16 to 2 so far with about an 80% winrate. 

 

-2 azure drakes

-1 the blackknight

-1 mechanical yeti

-1 doomhammer

--

+1 harvest golem

+1 enhance-O-mechano

+1 argent commander

+1 hex

+1 bloodlust

 

 

I dropped the drakes for 1 harvest golem and for 1 enhance-o- mechano; both of which have been performing much better than the drakes were. Azure is amazing (obviously) I just think it lacks the synergy to make it shine in this deck; as opposed to harvest golem, which always trades tremendously well giving me the same card advantage swing as a drake would. 

 

And enhance-o which when played on on turn 4-6 can really cement your board state; alternatively, it can just outright win the game for you with a windfury proc on something like the fire ele or tinkertown tech.

 

Since I dropped my curve a bit swapping the drakes out I felt it'd be ok to drop the yeti for argent commander/sylvanis. Been dancing back and forth between them. Both do quite well here but i think i may end up sticking with the commander for the burst potential. 

 

Hex is in for blackknight currently; Ill swap him back if/when the need arises but my climb has been predominantly tempohunter, mech mage and zoolock; TBK isn't brilliant in any of these matchups right now so the hex affords more flexibility for this slot while still fulfilling the same role. 

 

Lastly, I swapped the doomhammer out for a bloodlust. When this deck starts to run out of steam this just provides a much better option to closing out the game than doomhammer. 

 

cheers

I totally agree on bloodlust. 

I win most of the games with it.

when you have 4 mechs on the board including whirling zap omatic bloodlust is mostly enough to finish the game.

i traded an azure drake for a ragnaros is that fine. i only have 1 azure drake. i also traded a lava burst for a harvest golem. i could put sylvannas instead of ragnaros. What i should do

I highly enjoy this deck but end up loosing against paladin aggro as well as other aggro decks sometimes (I don't think one can only blame my skills for that, I'd consider myself a decent player.)

 

What could be switched out for aggro counters, and what would be the best anti-aggro cards fitting this deck?

 

I assume BK isn't as important while facing aggro, and the 6mana spot would still be covered without him. I'm going to try out several replacements myself, as well as other swap ideas previously mentioned in the comments.

 

Thanks in advance for any tips!

You shouldn't be keeping situational combos like that, just go for a solid curve of minions. That way if they have an answer for your first minion, you can just keep developing and stay ahead.

but this is the exact combo the deck tells you to do(at least one of them) on the first/second turn the deck is pretty much built how it is here : /

Ok sure, it does say you can keep the combination in the Mulligan, but it also mentions in the same paragraph that protecting your Zappo is important. Testing for removal with another minions first is good, or playing an Annoy-o-Tron to hide it behind etc.

 

I wouldn't be keeping Zappo/Rockbiter alongside no other cards.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!
      Daxxarri
      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
