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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
