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.

      Ever since the announcement of the Hearthstone Masters system, the details on the final tier - Hearthstone Grandmasters - have been a mystery. However, Tom Matthiesen from Inven Global has released some info on its format, prize pool and invited players.
      According to Inven Global, Hearthstone Grandmasters will have a league structure. It will consist of two seasons per year, with each season lasting eight weeks. Each region will have 16 players, who will be divided into two groups of eight. Europe and the Americas seem to be paired together, while it's not defined how Hearthstone Grandmasters will work for other regions.
      Inven has even acquired the names of 15 European participants and 13 from the Americas. They are all well-known pro players like Bunnyhoppor, Pavel, Thijs, Kolento, RDU, Firebat, Muzzy, Dog, Purple and more! The last four players will be determined by the results of the upcoming World Championship.
      Participants will play twice a week, facing off against each other in a double round-robin system. Hearthstone Grandmasters conclude with global finals. After the two seasons have ended, the two players who performed worst in season 2 in their respective region will be demoted and no longer play in Hearthstone Grandmasters.
      As far as the compensation of the players is concerned, each of them will earn $1,000 per week as an appearance fee. For each match won, another $500 is given to the participating players. The prize pool of the global finals is said to be $500,000. It's highly likely there'll be more rewards per seasonal performance.
      Hearthstone Grandmasters is set to start soon after the Hearthstone World Championships have concluded. Blizzard is expected to share these details sometime next week.

      This is a brand new Constructed Tavern Brawl.
      In Battle of the Bans, you pick a class and you initially make a deck of four cards. Your opponent bans one of them and then your deck is filled with copies of the remaining three cards.
      The "ban phase" happens after the mulligan but before turn one, and will show 3 of your opponent's cards plus a mystery card. If you pick the mystery card to ban, it will be revealed to you. If you have copies of the card your opponent chose to ban in your hand, they will be replaced randomly by your 3 other cards.
      To keep things balanced, the following cards have been banned from Battle of Bans: Jade Idol, Ice Block, Time Out!, Patches the Pirate and Whizbang the Wonderful.
      The concept of this Tavern Brawl is very interesting. Not only do you need to pick the proper cards that work well together, you also have to keep into account that one of them will get banned. In turn, you also need to be smart with your ban choice.
      This Brawl is very similar to Top 3: one of the decks that is really consistent in both of these Brawls is Mech Hunter with Metaltooth Leaper. Jade Shaman seems to be doing well as you get to summon even larger men every consecutive turn. Discardlock is reportedly performing very solidly, as well. A really strong counter-deck includes Holy Wrath and Shirvallah, the Tiger.
      As far as bans are concerned, since this Brawl seems to favour aggro decks in general, make sure to ban any taunts your opponent has. Alternatively, you can try a spell-based Mage or Priest deck.
      Feel free to share the decks that worked for you in the comments!

      To ensure the integrity of Hearthstone esports, Blizzard has banned the two Taiwanese players who were previously accused of wintrading and stream sniping.
      As a reminder, Roger and Reall were caught wintrading on April 2018. Moreover, the Chinese Taipei team, consisting of 2018 World Champion tom60229, Roger, Shaxy and Reall, was caught streamsniping during the Hearthstone Global Games and were consequently disqualified.
      Due to these events, there were several protests about Roger being crowned Winter Champion a month ago and qualifying for the this year's World Championship. Blizzard feels that Roger earned his Championship spot legitimately.
      However, Roger and Reall will not be allowed to participate in Hearthstone Grandmasters in 2019. The Grandmasters tier is the highest one in the revamped system for Hearthstone esports; it is still not known how exactly Grandmasters is going to work.
      Here is the full message regarding Roger and Reall:
      u/BlizzMilkfat
      Hi all – Sam Braithwaite, Senior Global Franchise Lead for Hearthstone esports here. As we prepare for the 2019 HCT World Championship, I wanted to take the opportunity to address the community’s feedback about one of our professional players, Luo "Roger" Shengyuan, who recently won the HCT Winter Championship.
      In Oct. 2018, during the Hearthstone Global Games, we discovered that team Chinese Taipei, which included Roger, tom60229, Shaxy, and Reall had violated the rules to gain a competitive advantage. In response, we administered the penalty outlined in the rules at the time, and disqualified team Chinese Taipei from the competition.
      But previously, in April 2018, allegations of Roger and Reall participating in win-trading had surfaced. After an investigation, we discovered their involvement in the incident but did not issue any official warning in response to their rule violation due to an internal miscommunication.
      We now realize that our previous rules around these scenarios and our enforcement of them did not meet the standards of our community. We take full responsibility for this. Moving forward, we will be reevaluating our rules for the 2019 season and are committed not only to improving, but also to being more transparent about the way we administer warnings, penalties, and rulings.
      Our failure should not diminish Roger’s accomplishments. He earned his championship at HCT Winter and his spot at the upcoming HCT 2019 World Championship on his own merit and in compliance with the official HCT competition ruleset.
      While Roger and Reall may still compete in Hearthstone Masters Qualifiers and Masters Tour events, due to having two rule violations last year, they will not be invited to the inaugural year of Hearthstone Grandmasters. Grandmasters will be the highest level of competitive Hearthstone, and its competitors will be held to higher standards, not just in performance, but also in conduct.
      Thank you for all your feedback, your support, your patience, and understanding. Hearthstone esports wouldn’t be what it is without you, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts as we prepare to embark on a new chapter of Hearthstone esports in just a few short months.

      What a tournament lined up for Blizzard at World Cyber Games 2019 in Xi'an.
      They got Hearthstone up and Warcraft 3 is finally back. Too bad Reforged won't be making it back in time. Hopefully when Warcraft 3: Reforged is out we will be seeing more tournaments with Warcraft competitions.
      You can even see the excitement of these games posting the official registrations on their twitter,
      for WC3:
      Hearthstone: https://twitter.com/HSesports/status/1105247640646754304
      Who knows maybe even one day we will get some Diablo tournaments if that is possible. Blizzard can host their own event as well with so many of their games having a great esports scene already.
