I'm missing the lores and Cenarius. I replaced the lores with a drake and spectral knight, but not sure about Cenarius. I don't have Rag, is Kel'thuzad a decent alternative or something big like Ironbark or Ancient of War?

KT is fine, Lores are really important though, you should make getting those a priority if you want to play this deck.

Yeah, I kind of felt the pinch of lack of card draw without lores, especially when I had to use wrath for 3dmg. Going to try the violet teacher token deck for now without the lores.

I am having the worst luck with this deck. It could be just bad luck or I don't understand the deck or both, but I am losing every single game with this deck. My problem is that every game, and I do mean every game, I don't have a single card that I could play until round 4.

 

How do you deal with that? And by that I mean, I almost always have Dr. Boom and other 6+ mana cards in my hand, I have yet to get an innervate before round 7 and Wild Growth hasn't made an appearence at all. I am not trying to complain, I understand the random nature of the game, but how do you deal with that level of randomness? I've played 10 games so far, and it is not a lie or overexaggeration to say I haven't had a single card I could even play until round 4.

Is there any room for Harrison in this deck because of the amount of hunters and grim patron warriors, mech shaman? If so what could be replaced ?

There is any oppurtunity to change Cenarius for Kell? Kell fits in this deck, or ragnaros or cenarius ar better choices?

Should I take out yeti and replace it with antique healbot to make the deck more face hunter friendly ?

My opinion on finishers in this deck is Cenarius > Ragnaros > KT right now, but it's constantly in flux. KT is definitely not wrong if you want to go that way.

Sure, it would improve that matchup if you're struggling with it. Weakens others though.

I do not have access to Zombie Chow/Shade of Naxxramas/Druid of the Flame; what would be the best substitute? 

Currently I'm thinking about the following:

 

-1 Zombie Chow

-2 Shade of Naxxramas

-1 Chillwind Yeti

 

+1 Mind Control Tech

+1 Sludge Belcher

+2 Harvest Golem

Yeah, seems ok. Shade is a really strong card in the deck though. I would also keep the Yeti since you're raising your overall curve a lot by taking out the Chow, I wouldn't want to raise it even further by swapping the Yeti for a Belcher.

What kind of card could I use to substitute the Sylvanas ? I've recently crafted a couple of legendaries with a handful of epics so I'm very low on dust.

 

Also is this fine ?

 

-1 Chillwind Yeti
+1 Faceless Manipulator

Black Knight for Sylvanas, or second Sludge Belcher, I don't like Faceless, but I know other people have had success with it.

I sadly don't have Black Knight. I guess I'll try out a second Sludge Belcher, not having that much success with Faceless Manipulator either.

I've found some good success with a healbot over Loatheb in this deck. With the amount of face hunters running rampant in the current meta, it serves as a great comeback mechanism, and also helps to stabilize going into the later game. It has also performed very well in other matchups too. Seem reasonable?

It's certainly a very specific tech choice, you can use it if the matchups you're facing are significantly in favour of Aggro, but as an overall choice, I don't like it.

Loatheb is almost equally good against Face Hunter anyway.

I haven't got either cenarius nor ragnoros.

 

Which would be the best choice for these cards?

KT

Leeroy

Piloted Sky Golem?

 

Also which would be the ideal card to sub out for a second force of nature?

 

Thanks

Hey Sottle.  Currently running this with Kezan instead of Yeti because I'm seeing alot of tempo mages and hunters.  But, I'm thinking about swapping out the Zombie Chow for Bloodmage.  What do you think?  Obviously doesn't help fight for the board early like Chow, but it can buff a wrath or swipe and give another card drawn (and also is just as good early or late unlike chow which is really only good early).  Do you think Bloodmage is a decent fit for this deck or am I barking up the wrong tree with this idea?  I'm going to experiment and see, but would love to hear your thoughts.  Thanks.

 

Edit:  After 4 games, the Bloodmage experiment is not going well.  Haven't yet found a useful play for him.

      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?

      Confirmed today on the official Hearthstone blog, the upcoming balance patch will go live on May 22nd.
      Though the nerfs had been announced several days ago, a timeline had previously not been provided for when the nerfs would go live. For those who have yet hear, the following cards will be receiving nerfs:
      Naga Sea Witch will have its Mana cost increased from 5 to 8 Mana Spiteful Summoner will have its Mana cost increased from 6 to 7 Mana Dark Pact will restore 4 Health instead of 8 health Possessed Lackey will have its Mana cost increased from 5 to 6 Mana Call to Arms will have its Mana cost increased from 4 to 5 Mana Crystal Core will turn minions into 4/4s instead of 5/5s
