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.

      The Ukrainian player is now part of G2.
      Lifecoach's spot had been empty for a while and someone had to fill in the gap, in order for the Fantastic Four of the Hearthstone division of G2 Esports to be remade. This person turned out to be Neirea, formerly of Team Liquid, who will join RDU, Thijs and Lothar. In fact, Neirea is already competing with his new team in the second week of the Trinity Series.
      Eugene "Neira" Shumilin has consistently ranked high in various major competitions since 2014. His breakout performance happened this year with team Ukraine placing 2nd in the Hearthstone Global Games and Neirea qualifying for the World Championship during the Spring Championship.
      We wish him the very best of luck!

      Shadowreaper Anduin can machinegun his enemies down at a proper speed.
      Patch 9.2, which went live yesterday, broke poor Shadowreaper Anduin, causing a huge delay when refreshing his Hero Power. This bug was quickly fixed today with a hotfix that can be donwloaded to your Hearthstone client:
      mdonais
      We are currently deploying a Hotfix to fix the speed of Shadowreaper Anduin's hero power.
      It slowed down in the patch yesterday. I don't know exactly why since I am not one of the engineers that fixed it but it sounds like it is a side effects of the unity upgrade we did. We have to rebuild a some things when we do a unity upgrade.
      Thanks!

      Which decks have emerged as the top dogs in the post-patch metagame?
      A lot has changed since patch 9.1 hit the ladder. In the latest meta report we cover the top new decks, the tech of the week, and some budget-friendly options you can use to dominate the ladder.
      It’s been a healthy amount of time since I wrote the first meta report for Icy Veins, and the current metagame could hardly be more different than the last I reported on. Patch 9.1 hit the ladder a few weeks ago to end the era of Druid dominance that plagued the early Knights of the Frozen Throne meta, and I believe that Blizzard deserves a good deal of credit for handling the Druid situation in a firm yet fair way. Druid was successfully knocked down a peg by the nerfs and the metagame is no longer plagued an overwhelming number of overpowered Jade Golems, yet the class itself was far from destroyed by the nerfs and remains a solid option for the competitive ladder.
      Now that the competitive ladder is once again a fun and safe environment to experiment in, it’s the perfect time to revisit the metagame to see how we can best attack it. In today’s article I’ll cover the top dogs of the format to take a look at why you should play them and how you can beat them, detail the tech card which are most likely to earn you some win percentage in the current metagame, and wrap things up by highlighting the top budget decks for the post-nerf ladder.
      The Top Decks
      Note: I will be using the vS Data Reaper Live Report for all of the statistics in this article.
      #1 - Tempo Rogue
      2x Backstab 2x Shadowstep 2x Cold Blood 2x Fire Fly 1x Hallucination 1x Patches the Pirate 2x Southsea Deckhand 2x Swashburglar 1x Prince Keleseth 1x Edwin VanCleef 2x SI:7 Agent 1x Shaku, the Collector 2x Southsea Captain 1x Tar Creeper 1x Spellbreaker 1x Xaril, Poisoned Mind 1x Leeroy Jenkins 1x Shadowcaster 2x Vilespine Slayer 2x Bonemare The new king of the meta is a deck which very few would have expected to become as dominant as it has. Tempo Rogue was just starting to gain momentum before the nerfs hit, yet it now boasts the top overall win percentage across all levels of play and has made Rogue the most played class at rank 5 and above.
      Most would have pegged Highlander Priest to wear the “best deck in standard” crown after the nerfs as it was the second best deck and was left untouched by Blizzard in Patch 9.1. Though it’s still a great deck (and we’ll be talking much more about a bit later), the metagame has shaped up to be a tad more aggressive than Highlander Priests would have hoped for. With aggro and aggressively-slanted midrange decks making up roughly half of the top 16 decks in the format, it stands to reason that the deck with the highest number of favorable matchups against these aggressive decks would be an in excellent position to take over the meta.
      Sure enough, Tempo Rogue boasts even or positive winrates against all but two of the decks on the Reaper report. All but two. Though that might seem like Jade Druid levels of domination, the key difference between Tempo Rogue and the previous king of the meta is that it is much easier to beat the deck if you’re planning for it. It’s vulnerable to wide boards that are backed up by effects such as Bloodlust and Savage Roar, plays seven or more Pirates which can be gobbled up by a Golakka Crawler, and its worst matchup is against Highlander Priest, the second most popular deck in the format.
      The power of the deck lies in the massive amount of two for ones, and is capable of generating massive amounts of value on a card per card basis. SI:7 Agent, Fire Plume Phoenix, Blazecaller, and Vilespine Slayer develop the board while going 187 on the opponent’s minions, and more aggressively-minded cards such as Cobalt Scalebane, Bittertide Hydra, and Bonemare are capable of generating a board out of nowhere. These highly efficient cards afford the deck the ability to play greedier cards like Cold Blood and Leeroy Jenkins to help them go underneath the bigger control decks. The final piece of the puzzle which puts it over the top is Prince Keleseth, a card which makes it’s already highly efficient creatures even more cost-effective and is particularly deadly in combination with Shadowstep.
      Tempo Rogue’s incredible flexibility and ability to pivot between roles are what make it such a dominant force in the current meta. It can comfortably play the role of the control deck against decks the likes of Zoo Warlock and Pirate Warrior, yet maintains a healthy number of tools which allow it to favorably play the role of Aggro against the likes of Jade Druid and Control Warlock. It seems that the way to take advantage of it is to capitalize on the fact that it doesn’t run several historically crucial Rogue cards. Without neither Vanish nor Bloodmage Thalnos + Fan of Knives at their disposal, the deck can struggle a bit to regain initiative against cards which create a wide board. Living Mana is a living nightmare for Tempo Rogue to deal with, and a big part of the reason that Aggro Druid is one of the two popular decks which has a favorable matchup against it (along with Highlander Priest). Though the Reaper report claims that Tempo Rogue is currently favored against Token Shaman, I’d imagine that some slight tuning could turn the tides towards Shaman’s favor.
      #2 - Highlander Priest
      1x Silence 1x Holy Smite 1x Northshire Cleric 1x Pint-Size Potion 1x Potion of Madness 1x Power Word: Shield 1x Bloodmage Thalnos 1x Dirty Rat 1x Golakka Crawler 1x Loot Hoarder 1x Mind Blast 1x Novice Engineer 1x Radiant Elemental 1x Shadow Visions 1x Shadow Word: Pain 1x Spirit Lash 1x Wild Pyromancer 1x Acolyte of Pain 1x Curious Glimmerroot 1x Kabal Talonpriest 1x Shadow Word: Death 1x Kazakus 1x Priest of the Feast 1x Shadow Word: Horror 1x Lyra the Sunshard 1x Raza the Chained 1x Dragonfire Potion 1x Holy Fire 1x Prophet Velen 1x Shadowreaper Anduin Fret not Priest fans, the age of Anduin is alive and well. Raza and Shadowreaper Anduin teamed up to make Highlander Priest the only deck played by 100% of the field at the HCT Summer Championships. It feels nearly impossible to beat a perfect draw from Highlander Priest, and the relatively high degree of skill which the deck requires to play affords more talented players the opportunity to outplay opponent’s in games which go long. It has a very tough time closing out games if it doesn’t draw Shadowreaper Anduin and Raza the Chained, but the huge amount of card draw the deck packs makes that a relatively rare occurrence.
      I don’t need to spend too much time discussing the strengths of the deck as it has been around for a while and it’s upsides are quite obvious. Early iterations of the deck had it masquerading as a control deck that just happened to play a game ending combo, but the Hearthstone community has since discovered that it’s much better to fully embrace the combo nature of the deck. Highlander Priest can now be best described as a pile of the top Priest spells, two extremely powerful Highlander cards (Raza and Kazakus), and a bunch of card draw spells. The downside of Highlander decks are that they can often feel inconsistent due to the one-of deckbuilding restriction, yet Highlander Priest is able to largely avoid this pitfall by reducing its effective deck size with all of its card draw.
      Highlander Priest is undeniably powerful and has certain draws that feel outright unbeatable, yet it still has several exploitable weaknesses. The most obvious of these weaknesses is the Highlander nature of the deck which prevents it from running more than one copy of Priest’s key defensive spells. It gets to run both Dragonfire Potion and Pint-Size Potion + Shadow Word: Horror to deal with boards that attempt to go wide, but it only gets to run one copy of Shadow Word: Death to kill larger minions and typically struggles against boards that can go big early. Shadowreaper Anduin gets to clear away multiple 5+ power minions with its battlecry effect, but efficient beaters like Bittertide Hydra and Cobalt Scalebane (which also dodges Dragonfire Potion) come down on Turn 5 and threaten to end the game before the powerful Death Knight has the opportunity to say anything about it. Barring a strong turn 5 play, not overcommitting your 5+ power minions into a Shadowreaper Anduin battlecry trigger can set up a game winning follow-up play before the upgraded Hero Power has time to burst your life down to 0. The lack of removal for large minions also means that the deck does miserably against both Jade Druid and Big Priest. At the end of the day Highlander Priest has just about as many negative matchups as positive ones, and it’s overall winrate on the Reaper report is a very modest 50%.
      #3 - Zoo Warlock
      A perfect example of addition by subtraction, the best aggro deck for the current standard meta is the one that didn’t get hit by the nerfs in patch 9.1. Pirate Warrior was dealt a massive blow with the nerf to Fiery War Axe and Aggro Druids are still adjusting to the loss of Innervate. These nerfs, along with the nerf to Spreading Plague, has opened up the door for a new aggro deck to emerge as a tool for punishing the slower and greedier decks of the format. Though the decklist for Zoo Warlock has remaind basically unchanged from the pre-nerf meta, the downgrade to normalcy for the top dogs of the previous format is what has allowed Zoo Warlock to become a highly competitive deck.
      The greatest strength of the deck is its remarkable consistency to curve out with 1 drops. It gets to run more 1 drops than any of the other top Aggro deck thanks Warlock’s two awesome Imps and Voidwalker, all of which are Demons for the extremely powerful one-card game-ender that is Bloodreaver Gul'dan. The deck's massive number of 1 drops allows it to squeeze minions onto the board at every spot in the curve while Life Tapping whenever possible to pressure the opponent with a stream of threats. Its also the aggro deck that has the lowest opportunity cost for running Prince Keleseth, as the deck would likely only consider Darkshire Librarian and Dire Wolf Alpha at the two drop slot and is perfectly content with Life Tap or two one drops on turn two. An early Keleseth makes Zoo’s already aggressively-statted minions a nightmare to deal with for control players and a huge problem for other aggro opponents as the game goes long. All of these factors add up to a deck which currently has only four negative matchups on the Reaper report and the second best overall win percentage in the meta.
      The weakness of Zoo Warlock is its relative inability to regain control over the board once it has been lost. The deck’s only ways to immediately deal with threats are Doomguard and Soulfire, both of which discard cards from hand and can potentially put the Warlock at a huge disadvantage. Getting a large Taunt minion to stick on board is likely too much for a Zoo Warlock to overcome, which is a big part of the reason that Big Priest is the deck’s worst matchup. Control decks can prey on Zoo Warlock by sticking a Doomsayer and following it up with heavy board presence. Other Aggro decks can can punish Zoo by getting on the board early and fighting tooth and nail to not surrender control of the board. As the Warlock is likely to pressure it’s own life total with Life Tap and Flame Imp, it shouldn’t be too difficult to turn the corner and quickly end the game once the opportunity presents itself.
      Tech of the Week - Golakka Crawler
      Despite a massive drop in the playrate of Pirate Warrior, Patches the Pirate and Southsea Captain are enjoying all-time highs in terms of deck representation. Half of the top ten decks on the Reaper report run Patches, while the top deck in the format (Tempo Rogue) is running up to nine Pirates! As much as I would love to suggest a sexier tech card, the prevalence of pirates in the present patch make Golakka Crawler the tech of the week. I’d currently recommend cramming two copies of the crab into control or midrange deck with the flex spots to support it.
      Budget Beater #1 - Midrange Hunter
      2x Alleycat 2x Tracking 2x Crackling Razormaw 2x Golakka Crawler 2x Scavenging Hyena 2x Animal Companion 1x Deadly Shot 2x Eaglehorn Bow 2x Kill Command 2x Stitched Tracker 2x Unleash the Hounds 2x Houndmaster 2x Infested Wolf 1x Tundra Rhino 2x Savannah Highmane 2x Bonemare The time of the Hunter is upon us! One of the weakest classes in Journey to Un’Goro, Hunter has emerged as an effective choice in the current meta for all the same reasons that Zoo Warlock has. Midrange Hunter has some terrible aggro matchups, but it’s sticky creatures are problematic for nearly all of the top control decks in the format. This extremely budget-friendly deck is currently capable of carrying skilled or experienced Hunter pilots all the way to Legend, just be wary of aggro-heavy local metagames during your climb.
      Budget Beater #2 - Secret Mage
      Note: Requires One Night in Karazhan and 4 Epics.
      2x Mana Wyrm 2x Arcanologist 2x Frostbolt 2x Medivh's Valet 2x Primordial Glyph 2x Sorcerer's Apprentice 2x Arcane Intellect 2x Counterspell 2x Kirin Tor Mage 2x Mirror Entity 2x Fireball 2x Bittertide Hydra 2x Kabal Crystal Runner 2x Bonemare 2x Firelands Portal I’m including a second budget beater this week because Midrange Hunter decks are so commonly recommended as budget options. Secret Mage is a very well positioned deck in the current meta and a deck I played heavily during my own climb to Legend last month. It quietly boasts a better overall winrate than Highlander Priest despite having some of the most polarizing matchups in the entire game. It performs horribly against most of the current aggro decks while completely running over all of the popular control decks. The thing I love most about Secret Mage is that it’s fairly skill intensive. It takes a ton of thought to pilot the deck to it’s maximum potential, which is a bag part of what makes the deck such a blast to play.
       
      Conclusion
      The Hearthstone metagame is as healthy as it's been since the last rotation, and it's a great time to jump back on the competitive ladder if you previously scared off by the brief age of DruidStone. Fans of every single class have at least one solid deck for climbing the ladder, and no individual deck feels as though it's power level is beyond reproach.
      Good luck out there, and I'll see you all next time!

      The big patch we were all expecting is finally live! It contains the removal of arena synergies, the new game mechanics update and the Hallow's End seasonal event.
      Firsly, the patch includes the changes to the sequence of triggers, which we have covered extensively in a separate article. A notable change is the removal of Arena synergy picks. That's not all, though: Vicious Fledgling will no longer appear in Arena, while appearance rate adjustments have been made to some cards.
      The patch also brings Nemsy Necrofizzle, the new Warlock hero, to the Hearthstone client. She is already available from October 17 and we will cover more about her in a next article!
      The October 2017 (Unholy Horror Knights) and November 2017 (Gone Fishing) Ranked Play Season card backs have been added to the client and you can view them below:

      The more exciting part of this patch is Hallow's End! This seasonal event will run for two weeks, from October 24 until November 6. According to Hearthpwn, during its first week we will get a free Whispers of the Old Gods pack and an Arena ticket. During its second week, we will get a free Knights of the Frozen Throne and an Arena ticket.
      The main hero portraits will have unique costumes (make sure to check them out on the Hearthpwn article linked above).  There will be a special Tavern Brawl with unique cards on the week of October 24. Moreover, during Hallow's End the Arena will have a dual class mode. You will choose a hero and then you will choose a hero power from a second hero. Then, you will be able to draft class cards from both heroes, as well as neutral cards. Bear in mind that any Arena run you have in progress will be automatically retired on October 24. You will receive rewards based on the number of your wins and a free Arena ticket.
      Lastly, Patch 9.2 contains various bug fixes. You can read the patch notes here.

      Starting from October 17, the new Warlock hero can be obtained from Fireside Gatherings.
      Her looks already betrayed that she's nothing like the evil Gul'dan, but now her voice emotes prove that Nemsy Necrofizzle is surprisingly cute for a Warlock!
      You can obtain the Gnome heroine by participating in a Fireside Brawl at an established Fireside Gathering Tavern. Pay attention to that last part: these places have already hosted 3 Fireside Gatherings in the past and have earned the Tavern banner. So, since a lot of Fireside Gatherings have popped up since Nemsy was announced, make sure you attend one in a proper Tavern!
      Blizzard Entertainment
      Beginning October 17, attend a Fireside Gathering Tavern near you and play in a Fireside Brawl to add Hearthstone’s newest Warlock Hero to your collection: Nemsy Necrofizzle!

      Don’t let Nemsy Necrofizzle’s small size and penchant for peaches fool you: behind those pigtails and goggles hides one of the most powerful Warlocks alive. Nemsy is utterly fearless, sharp as a razor, and she’s always cool under pressure. After all, you can’t command fel energies or summon horrifying demons from the twisting nether just by being nice. She’s your perky little pal—and a bonafide fel-flinging, soul-destroying mistress of dark forces!

      Nemsy loves it when her foes underestimate her. Appearances can be deceiving, and she knows that it’s what lies beneath the surface that counts.
