Hard deck to play.  And I love hard decks.  Against Aggro decks it is very difficult to beat.  You have to be so situational with the Gang ups and if you use them on any card other than the Oracle you are defeating the deck's purpose.

 

I've had fun using the Trade Prince to force spellcasters to fill up their own decks with coins too.

 

Deathlord is truly a risky deck.  As is Dancing Swords, although it has excellent attack value.  The synergies are definitely fun but hard to manage.

2x Oil in place of Sabotage/Shiv?  Dancing Swords in place of Mukla?

Oil doesn't really fit, Dancing Swords is fine though.

I love this deck because of the high stakes.  It is true poker and fails more than it succeeds.  But when it succeeds it is spectacular and unique in its ability to frustrate an opponent.  All those cards on fire.  All those cards in your hand ultimately crushed and dooming you.

 

The biggest issue is defense.  Deathlords are so unpredictable but their low card draw value makes them almost irreplaceable.

I've found that 1x Big Game Hunter can be a nice addition against a deck that plays huge minions/a lot of buffs in case you're out of saps/it's foolish to vanish at the time. I've won games simply through BGH + shadowstep to clear 2x mountain giants in a single turn so that it was safe to continue on my coldlight spree.  (you can also cold light + BGH  + preperation + vanish [you'd want to play it in conjunction with vanish only if your opponent doesn't have enough cards in their hand for the minion to die])  It's of course, a circumstantial card, and you have to know if you can afford to use the shadowstep on something other than heals or draws. So, in other words, if you end up repeatedly facing off against huge minions, you might want to keep that in mind. just giving my input, it's not my deck up here laugh.png

Hi. Im playing this deck since Gang up appear. And to deal with number of aggros deck than i met. I choosed to put 2 blade Fury. And because im traumatised by handlock (that im playing too) put a BGH too. SI7 its a good idea in the slot oh shiv. And cause dont have mukla and thalnos ive replace it by youthfull brew master to bonus combo and kobold +1 spellpower to help backstab fan of knives and eviscerate (turn 4 against 5 hp). It became pretty resistant against aggro and trully degenerate against control. Thats just some advices make by a stranger who dont really master the english (sorry about that)

Drawing the right cards into the combo is the key. Don't be afraid to cast a Fan of Knives or Shiv on an empty board just to get the cards. I've lost like 90% of the time with this, but it's FUN! Winning with it even more fun. I'm not playing to climb a ladder, I'm playing for fun, and this deck is it.

This deck is literally not viable in any matchup. You are so handicapped by waiting for your oracles that you are powerless against every opponent. Don't try playing this in ranked or you will fall like a rock. 0-10 in casual play.

I'm sure your 0-10 record is entirely the deck's fault.

This deck is awesome. Very hard to play, but very rewarding once you win with it. 

Main difficulty is timing the Vanishes, as your life total can dwindle rapidly.

What do you think of Beneath the Grounds? Since they have to draw another anyway, and you're basically guaranteed to get the ambushes.

If your opponent burns those ambushes, they don't activate. This enlarges his deck, making it harder for you to mill him to death. You would have to try not to burn his cards and that just won't work. It is also ineffective when using Vanish because you get 3 more cards to your hand.

      The two Hearthstone developers talked to IGN about the design process behind some of the most impactful cards from Kobolds & Catacombs.
      First of all, Peter Whalen and Mike Donais confirmed that there will be an update on February, a month after the World Championship. This patch will contain new events and possibly balance changes. They will take a look at the meta as it's been and as it is in the World Championship and they will decide accordingly.
      Moving on, they talked about some of the classes and how K&C cards have affected them. Starting with Warlock, Cubelock was a deck that was tested internally and it was an archetype the team was "certainly concerned about and [they] played a bunch of games with it". Carnivorous Cube was also tested internally in Recruit Hunter and in Quest Druid. As far as Possessed Lackey is concerned, there was a second version of it that read "Battlecry: If you control a Demon, Recruit a Demon", while Dark Pact was 0 mana at some point. Lastly, Rin, the First Disciple's seals used to have different effects and Azari, the Devourer was a 15/15 untargetable minion.
      The two devs talked next about the other dominating class of the current meta: Priest. Mike Donais pointed out that Highlander Priest was already doing well, so it was only given one new card: Psychic Scream. On the other hand. Big Priest has a pretty medium win rate, even though it can feel frustrating to play against. It's also a deck that will lose several cards in the upcoming rotation. At this point, the devs repeated that they are looking forward to develop and see in action new playstyles in the post-Barnes era. Finally, during the design process Twilight's Call could summon any minion, not just Deathrattles, but this was deemed too powerful.
      The next class to be discussed was Rogue. The team is happy with how balanced the Kingsbane Rogue deck turned out to be. Some internal iterations of the Rogue legendary weapon were dual-wielded daggers or a weapon that had the Battlecry: Discover a card, everything you draw is a copy of that. Mike also talked about Valeera the Hollow: he expected her to be more powerful than she already is, but maybe players will find a way to use her more in the future.
      There were a few words about Hearthstone's currently weakest class: Shaman. The devs think that the Shaman Spellstone is a powerful "sleeper" card, although maybe there's presently not a proper deck for it. They were also slightly worried about Unstable Evolution. Another "sleeper" card for them is Warrior's Drywhisker Armorer.
      An important point is that when asked about Corridor Creeper, Peter said that it's "one of the cards that raised a red flag". Lastly, they talked about King Togwaggle and the numerous iterations he had - all around swapping decks with your opponent. The penalty on the spell card isn't high enough on purpose, because they didn't want Togwaggle to be a super competitive card.
      I've tried to summarise the most important points, but you should definitely check out the entire interview on IGN. There's much more detail behind the design process of Kobolds & Catacombs, while there is also temp artwortk of cards as well as two cards that never made it into the game!

Given the recent start of the Overwatch League and the choose your champion feature for the World Championships, it seems that Blizzard is supporting competitive gaming now more than ever.

      This week's Brawl honours the 3 previous Hearthstone World Champions!
      The 2018 World Championship is about to begin and Team 5 is celebrating by giving us a very special Tavern Brawl. In this Brawl, you get to play with decks that the previous world champions from 2014, 2015 and 2016 used on their way to the top. Your player name will even change to the respective Champion: Firebat, Ostkaka or Pavel!
      Here are the deck archetypes you can get:
      Firebat's Undertaker Hunter Firebat's Ramp Druid Firebat's Miracle Rogue Firebat's Zoolock Ostkaka's Patron Warrior Ostkaka's Oil Rogue Ostkaka's Freeze Mage Pavel's Tempo Mage Pavel's Malygos Miracle Rogue Pavel's Midrange Shaman Pavel's C'Thun Warrior Pavel's Malygos OTK Druid You might think: "why would I want to play a deck from 2014 with cards that have been nerfed"? Well, all cards are on their pre-nerfed versions, therefore they are basically in the same state as when originally used by each World Champion. So, say hello to pre-nerf Undertaker, Leper Gnome, Hex and many others.
      Amnesiac can never catch a break.
      A slight inconsistency is that cards that generate other cards or tokens, like Piloted Shredder or Babbling Book, can generate cards/tokens from later expansions. For example, my opponent's dead Shredder created Friendly Bartender, a card that neither Champion had encountered at their time.
      Enjoy the Brawl and tune in to the World Championship this weekend!
