I don't have access to the two legendaries and Shades Of Naxxramas. Which easier obtainable cards could I use instead? Not attempting to get legendary, but simply to be competetive against other constructed decks.

So my question is, why not include assassins blade? Get that oiled up and you have longer lasting, consistent damage. More susceptible to HJ understandably, but still... Why isn't it an addition here?

It's just too slow, the 5 Mana investment can cost you too much Tempo, and yeah as you mentioned, if you end up getting a 5 Mana Weapon (+ More Mana and cards for Poison or Oil buffs) Harrison Jones'd, you're going to have bad time.

Sinces its relativily cheap deck, ive come up a few mirrior matches it comes down to luck, any tweaks you suggest for mirrior?

Harrison instead of Shade, Trade Prince is great too if they are running double Sprint, if they're running Gadgetzan it can cost you though.

If I want to include Gadgetzan, which card would you choose to remove? Also one or two Gadgetzan if we are putting any? Please keep in mind I am using Kobolt instead of Thalanos because I am poor.

Hello, I'm guessing violet teacher is pretty much at the core of this deck but I don't have any. Can I replace or not?

Running 100% same deck card for card, went from rank 15 to 20...

 

Don't know how people do well with this deck (I'm clearly a novice).

I get destroyed after losing board, have no minions, no way to recover/win match unless my hand is perfect.

 

Any tips?

Makes room for the extra minions, getting on board with the deck is extremely important, so you're using your spells to protect your minions rather than just playing catchup the whole game.

I was getting my butt kicked because I was playing re-actively but after reading this write up and dropping minions early even without ideal conditions (earthen for 0,1,2 heal; SI:7 to face) I'm having some better luck.

 

It's definitely a learning experience for me!  I've gotten all the way to rank 1 but I guess I've only ever played Control or Aggro decks.  I'm committing myself to this Tempo / Combo deck for the full March season to hopefully improve my overall game.  Even though I currently can't get past Rank 13!

 

I'm thinking the most replaceable card here is Shade.  It's been clunky in my hands more times than it's been helpful.  Was thinking of swapping for a Piloted Shredder even though it's kind of off-curve.  Thoughts?

I love the shade in this deck, against hard control decks like warrior or some mage decks it's a wonderful threat.

This deck is weakened significantly without the Teachers, but I would use Piloted Shredder as first replacement choice if I was forced to cut them.

      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.

      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!
