I don't think I understand this deck. I have died every time with it. The minions get wiped before you can power them up to deal real damage or rid opponent minions. Though the weapons help, they obviously add to your character damage which is not well mitigated unless you draw your two plus armor cards. Speaking of that, yes you do have a lot of draw power. This has kept the hands full but hasn't led to a lot of power. In theory it would be great to deal damage incrementally to acolyte or worsen, but in practice opponents know their power and wipe or silence them quickly. Throw a loatheb at the deck mid game and it is shot out of the water with its reliance on power up spells. I'd like to see it synergies and control but frankly 1 damage sweeps are not particularly effective.

It sounds like you're playing Acolyte and Worgen onto the board without activating them immediately? I feel like it was made pretty clear in the guide that that's a bad idea. You want to hold Acolyte until you are able to draw a card immediately with it, and Worgen is your finisher, you don't just play it out and hope to buff it the next turn, you wait until you have Charge and various other cards to unleash huge damage.

The deck type has been around for a while, i'm only just getting to making a guide for it. For example Neirea famously used it in tournament to 3-0 Kolento.

Does this counter rush? I tried it, saving my acolytes and ragings until i can proc them rather than playing them. Yet i got crushed because i couldn't keep up with the minions they were playing. Also what can you use in place of shield slams? I can't aquire them yet.

The deck is much stronger against slower decks that give you time to setup, Aggro does have an ability to overwhelm you with this deck.

 

Shield Slam is pretty irreplaceable in the deck, the effect is pretty hard to replicate.

Shield slam can be replaced with Charge minions. Not as effective but does intant dmg. Arcane Golem would be as close as you can get to shield slam effect mana/dmg wise.

Arcane Golem in the early game has huge drawbacks, especially against control decks and it only deals 4 damage, compared to the almost unlimited amount of damage Shield Slam deal. It's not just "not as effective" but extremely worse.

How would you alter the deck to more effectively counter an aggro-oriented meta? Or is it a lost cause? I'm often facing either mech mage or face hunter and those feel almost impossible to keep up with.

There is absolutely no way this deck can reach anywhere near rank 3, let along legendary. the current meta is all about mech or aggro, which this deck can not stand against. good luck getting past rank 15 with this deck this season.

As posted above, Neirea has used this deck against Kolento, winning for 3-0 in a tournament. And lets be honest... Kolento is probably a better player, than 99% of the Hearthstone players.

I am implying, that it can be either. But it could be both issues too... ^^

like i previously stated, this deck isn't good against the current meta, which is mainly mech and aggro. if you watched the video you'll see that kalento wasn't running any rush decks in all 3 games, which is irrelevant to my first post. I have no issue dealing with decks that kalento ran. but good luck getting past rush/aggro decks.

This deck has had like an 80% win rate against all types of decks. It takes a completely different kind of mindset in order to accomplish the OTK. You absolutely need every card listed here. You're pretty much utilizing the entire deck. Most of my matches are 15+ minutes long and end with 2-6 cards left in my deck. There is no room for error. I'm enjoying it and I'm hoping I can reach legendary with it. Climbed 17-13 in one night. Expect to play some looong matches

I played 10 games with in Legend before posting, and went 7-3. That's the most reassurance I can give you, the deck is definitely not easy to play, but it is fully capable. If you can afford to play full Control Warrior, that deck is probably more consistent against the field though.

I think Emperor Thaurissan would be a good addition to this deck because you could do your combo for less than 10 mana or you could pile up even more cards into the combo (I found it hard to win vs shielded enemies). Don't know what to take out though smile.png.

Just started playing this deck. It is fun, but I had to destroy some cards to get a second Shield Slam. I don't play Warrior a lot but I need an able deck to do the Warrior missions. I don't have Gromm so without it, this is actually a very competitive deck. I am curious, could using Thaurissan be useful?  Maybe add him instead of a Frostbite?   Thank you for putting this deck together  smile.png

I'm not sure without actually testing it, it seems like it might be good, but at the same time, the combos aren't really very mana restrictive, they're just a matter of drawing all the cards.

I don`t play HS long enough and i don`t have much cards, but even w/o 2 "shield bash", 2 "loot hoarders" and 2 "death`s bite" it`s extremely playable. Had a whole evening of fun and adrenaline =) Just need a little patience and sangfroid. Btw, 2 "kor`kron elite" instead of 2 "death`s bite" worked fine for me, at least that day (cheaper ver. but it`s good)

I reached rank 7 with this deck last season, but I had to make a lot of changes to beat face and midrange hunters. Also the decklist Neirea created is only good in tournaments, where there are a lot more control decks. The decks main weakness is at turns 7+ if you're not close to having the combo you usually dont have anything to play. Your hand is filled with combo pieces, that you quite often rely on top decks. The deck needs shieldmaidens and atleast 1 belcher to survive and prolong the game, also the loot hoarders are usually a waste, since you have your first few turns planned out. MCT/BGH are options depending on meta. Emperor is bad in this deck, your combo already costs 8-10 mana.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
