What are your thoughts on using an Earth Shock on your on Fel Reaver? Seems like it could create all kinds of issues for the opposition. Maybe even in another deck include the Ancestors card that has 0 cost but brings a minion back to full health and adds Taunt? Maybe some other possibility's here for this card as well?

In my experience, it's almost always better to hold Earth Shock for an enemy Taunt that your own Fel Reaver.

I've been playing this deck for the last 48 hours, and have had a pretty satisfying winrate so far, but i've been struggling against faster decks, especially mech mages. 

It's like, either he draws the Cogmaster+Mechwarper+Annoy-o-tron faster and you're done, either he doesn't but turn 4 Goblin Blastmage flips your board nonetheless and you're dead as soon as he draws fireball.

 

I'm currently trying -Lava Burst +Lightning Storm and want to know what you guys do think of it.

 

Also, Earth Shocking an Aldor'd Reaver is beast ;D

What is this deck in comparision to Mech Mage? Is it better, worse? Much better, much worse? I assume match-ups are the same, since both decks play very simmilar game and style, so it's all about pure power. Shaman seems to be more versatile due to having cards like Elementals, Earth Shock and especially weapons. It has similar game ending potential, even without Fireballs/Antonidas, and more space for techs. On the other hand Mage has great burst damage, amazing Blastmage, seems to be a bit more consistent and it's better at playing midrange style, while Shaman rather plays purely aggresive game. So is there a clear winner?

No there isn't a clear winner, that's part of the joy of Hearthstone, different decks are better at different times and against different matchups. Mech Shaman certainly comes out on top against Mech Mage in the direct face to face matchup though.

Would you add Fireguard Destroyer to this deck? If so, what would you replace?

The Mech Yeti goes for sure, whether or not i'd play a second one, and what i'd cut for it would need some more experimentation.

How does this deck work? It loses to all aggro decks. Pally's lol it. Warriors lol it. Priest lol at it. They all can insta remove the reaver. The mech early game is extremely mulligan dependent. I'm so confused. I've lost 20 in a row. I've gotten demoted several several leagues. I've never had a deck play this poorly and i've made joke deck challenges and get single digits easily. How is this deck a legendary quality deck?!

The idea is to put on enough pressure so that your opponent is forced to use removal before you drop your Reaver, it's actually pretty strong in most Aggro mirrors because of how good Powermace is, and it definitely beats Warrior. Without actually seeing you play or having specific questions to answer, I can't really help more than that.

between this and the original mech shaman, which is the better one generally speaking?

I haven't try out shaman yet and the original mech deck is more forgiving in the dust needed tongue.png

Could you tell me please why you categorised this deck as a meta deck? I just wasted 800 arcane for fel reavers, it seems that it's countering itself. My opponents just say thanks to me for playing this deck.

The only thing I can say is that you are not playing it correctly. This deck has been used by considerable amount of people to reach legend with and Fel Reavers are run in many aggro deck, such as Mech Mage or Aggro Druid. However, it takes some time to learn how to use them properly and when is it safe to put them down. You either need to practice with it or watch some videos to see, how the deck should be played.

But I can't even win casual games, I played 5 and luckily won 1. How can I fail that much? And my skill generally isn't that bad, I reached rank 5 last season.

Fel Reaver decks have completely different playstyle, so if you play them like generic aggro, you usually lose. Also, if you drop Fel Reaver at a wrong monent, you will lose. If you drop him at the right moment, you usually win. You will need to practice a lot to know when it is safe to drop him. Generally, test for soft removal, such as freeze effects (Frostbolt, Water Elemental on the board, etc), Peacekeeper/Humility/Keeper of Uldaman and also hard removals, mainly BGH (drop Boom first).

Could I use Sir Finley in this deck? Which card should I replace with it if yes?

I just replaced tuskar, is it ok?

Sure. The priority of hero power would be Hunter > Druid > Mage > Rogue > Rest.

      Dave Kosak is here with a new Hearthside Chat to talk about Dungeon Runs. He also showcased a new legendary card from the new expansion!
      We've already talked about Dungeon Runs, one of the new features that Kobolds & Catacombs will bring. Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak explains in this latest Hearthside Chat the design process behind Dungeon Runs.
      Dave presented some unique elements only present in Dungeon Runs. For example, there is a card you can pick called Cloak of Invisibility, which has a Passive effect of giving your minions permanent Stealth.
      He also gave some insight on the encounters. Some Dungeon Runs can have thematic encounters, like there's a band of Troggs or Trolls you will have to beat. As far as the Trolls are concerned, Battlecrier Jin'zo has a passive effect that is similar to Brann Bronzebeard, which you and him can both benefit from! Similarly, Spiritspeaker Azun's passive works like Baron Rivendare for both parties, while Voodoomaster Vex combines both of these passive effects!
      The narrator, that will be guiding you through your Dungeon Run, is King Togwaggle - the king of the Kobolds himself! He is also going to be an actual card available in the next expansion:

      Here's the official blog post with everything you need to know about Dungeon Runs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What’s a Dungeon Run?
      Dungeon Run is a new insanely fun, single-player “rogue-like” mode where you’ll face deadly encounters and collect incredible Treasures to build a deck worthy of a hero!
      When your Dungeon Run starts, you’ll choose a Hero and receive a starting deck consisting of 10 cards. You’ll use it to overcome eight encounters of increasing difficulty (chosen randomly from a huge pool of 48 possible encounters!) to clear the run.

      That initial deck might be enough to help you squeak by your first opponent, but you’ll need to get stronger if you hope to clear the whole run. Each time you defeat a Dungeon Run encounter, you’ll be given an opportunity to “level up” your Dungeon Run deck with themed sets of three cards appropriate to your class. Occasionally, you’ll also be able to pick from a selection of three incredibly powerful Treasure cards—non-collectible cards and abilities made just for this mode that are too blatantly overpowered to see normal play.
      You’ll need all that power—as well as your wits—because these encounters can be fiendishly difficult. Victory is not assured, and each encounter has its own unique perils. If one of them gets the better of you, defeat is permanent, so you’ll have to start a different run with a whole new deck!
      If you manage to complete a full Dungeon Run with each of the nine Classes—no mean feat!—you’ll add the Candle King card back to your collection.

      In this article, we are covering two new cards: Temporus, a Priest legendary minion, and Benevolent Djinn, a Paladin common minion.
      Benevolent Djinn was revealed earlier today by Thai player Anothersayoran1. The name of the card was officially confirmed by Puffin.

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is difficult to judge this card without seeing it in action. It’s comparable to Friendly Bartender: while the Djinn heals for more, its 2 attack value is a bit mediocre for a 3-mana minion. Shaman’s Hot Spring Guardian is slightly better, since it has Taunt and a targeted heal effect. Then again, Djinn also acts like a Taunt, in the sense that your opponent probably has to spend early resources to remove its powerful effect. Both cards, though, are beaten by Tar Creeper.
      This make the Djinn a great anti-aggro tool. Additionally, it synergises well with Blackguard and its Elemental tribe means that maybe we’ll get to see an Elemental Paladin. This is definitely a powerful Arena card. But can it secure a spot in constructed mode? It looks difficult, since Paladin already has some great 3-mana minions.

      This intriguing minion was revealed by Eurogamer. Its sister site, Metabomb, sat down with Peter Whalen and Ben Thompson to talk about this card. Both developers think that Temporus can be run in either the classic OTK Priest (Divine Spirit + Inner Fire) or in two new versions of Dragon Priest: a more midrange one and an OTK one with Malygos. 
      It would be interesting to see what it's interaction is going to be with Brann Bronzebeard. Temporus is a "high risk, high reward" card and, even if you don't like it or it turns out to be bad, you'd still have to commend its design.

      The 2016 Hearthstone World Champion revealed this rare Druid card.
      Grizzled Guardian was unveiled on Pavel's YouTube channel. It's a rare Druid Beast, that costs 8 mana and has 3 attack and 5 health. It has Taunt and Deathrattle: "Recruit 2 minions that cost (4) or less". Pavel's video is in Russian, but you can enable accurate English subtitles to see what the World Champion has to say about that card.
      After watching Pavel's video, I am convinced that Grizzled Guardian isn't as bad as it looks at first sight. Sure, its stats are garbage, but you should also factor in the stats of the minions it pulls from your deck when it dies. Still, it's hard to see it fit into the current meta. Perhaps, it can see play when the Year of the Kraken sets rotate out of Standard. It also weakens the 8-mana slot for Evolve and similar effect.
      What's your opinion on Grizzled Veteran? As always, all the cards of the new expansion can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.
      PS: Turns out it's not Hogger 3.0 :(

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      The second of three Unidentified Magic Items to be revealed from Kobolds and Catacombs, will Unidentified Maul be a smashing success on the ladder?
      Kripparrian revealed the second of three Unidentified Magic Items in Kobolds and Catacombs today on his Twitter accounter, Unidentifed Maul:

      A Paladin Weapon, Unidentified Maul begins each game with an unknown effect and will become "identified" upon drawing the card from your deck. The weapon will always be a 3 mana 2/2, but will be randomly bestowed with one of the four following effects when drawn:

      A couple of the potential modes on this card are very enticing. Two Silver Hand Recruits and a 2/2 weapon for 3 mana is a screaming deal, and the other three modes offer some serious value if you're already ahead on board. Given that three of the four potential modes on Unidentified Maul aren't very good when you're behind, I doubt this card will slot in as an instant replacement for Rallying Blade. Unidentified Maul could end up seeing play in token-based strategies, as granting +1 Attack or Divine Shield to a wide board of minions drawn from Small-Time Recruits is nothing to shake a hammer at.
      Will the random nature of Unidentified Maul be its downfall, or will its synergies with token strategies enable it to see some play on the ladder? Let us know what you think in the comments, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.
