you think this deck is still or that there are any tweaks you can make to it to make it viable?i used to play it and i found it extremely fun(other than games lasting around 30 minutes on average) but i'm not sure it can still work nowadays.

Yeah I think it's still fine. I haven't tested the matchup, but it seems like it would be a really strong answer to all the Grim Patron Warrior.

I have been playing this deck the last couple of days.. Win rate is low, but I like the randomness of the cards. They REALLY make me have to think of how to play.. Even with oracle draw kind of stinks.. Often I might not get my duplicates until the very end of game.. Also, I switched out one Echo for Chromaggus.. I don't get to use him a lot, but I used echo even less. There just aren't enough playable minions.. And this is hugely a spell based deck.. Illuminator is rarely used for more than one round, and that is not a card I want to duplicate especially with only 3 secrets.. UNLESS Chromaggus gave me the extras.. Which, it is tough to say what you will draw as soon as he is in play, so I am trying to count my cards so to speak.. If I know some really good ones have yet to be drawn, I will throw him in for the chance at the spares.. Otherwise, this deck is really hard to play as my hand may be full of spells before even one minion pops.. Either way that could work for me or kill me by turn 6... I definitely need more practice. But I love the deck so far..  :)

I have been playing this deck for a few days as well, and as the above comment mentioned, it is random and sometimes I just get stomped before turn 8 (mostly due to not freezing well on my part I think) but against more control type decks, I have had so much success. I just finished playing against a Lightbomb priest and demolished him. Duplicating Illuminator following by Echoing an Oracle and Illuminator was amazing towards the end. I'm not a pro, nor am I above rank 16 on the ladder, but I've had a ton of fun playing this deck and learning how to play better and anticipate moves.

are there any youtube videos of the creator playing this deck? I am really struggling with it as the draws are so difficult to get on my side.  As mentioned before, there aren't enough playable minions, and often they don't come out in time, or they come at once.. It is just difficult to know when to hold em, so to speak.. And then, when to use which spells... I have burned through most of my freezes with in 4 turns because I had nothing else to use for attack..

AMAGE4EVER: Note that in these grinder / fatigue decks, you do not care about tempo. Passing an entire turn (or even two) is sometimes completely fine as long as you dont take too much damage. You have only a limited amount of removal and should not was it on very early boards that do not represent that much of a threat.

Well, this is a very difficult deck to master... I am realizing now it isn't about the minions or slapping my opponent in the face.. Grasping the stall concept is actually a bit more difficult than I had anticipated.. However, with the advice from everyone here, and more practice I think I can only get better.. Despite how tough this is, I am not quitting.. I do enjoy this deck.. And I have had great results! Especially when it looked completely hopeless..  smile.png

 

But anyway, here is my battletag AMAGE4EVER#1330 if any of you are interested, friend request me.. I am almost always playing this deck.. You can always spectate and critique me if you like..  Until then CHEERS  wink.png And thanks again..

I did just reply to this post, and did the capcha but not sure where my post went.. Sorry if this shows as back-to-back anyway, I was just thanking everyone for all their tips and advice.. So far I love this deck against control warrior.. My difficult ones are Legendary Mages, massive spell damage plus Mages, and mill Rogue..  Any tips for these deck types?

the deck is indeed still fine.i played a couple of games with it around rank 3 this season,and won most of them.as sottle said it is excelent against patron warriors and also against the ever present hunters(turn 3 deathlord spells doom for aggro decks most of the time).it's also very,very fun to play.

 

still,i think that for the purpose of getting legend it's not the best choice,not because you can't win but simply because games take too long.in order to get legend with this deck you would need a lot of free time on your hands during that month.

Ok, so first game.

Against the Huffer, I would have just Frostbolted it and played Doomsayer on an empty board. This means he has to skip his next turn and you get to play Deathlord unchallenged on an empty board the next turn. Your play was much more risky to taking a lot more damage if he removal or an Owl for the Deathlord.

Turn 5, I would have considered Cone of Cold heavily, this might bait out an Owl to unfreeze one of his minions, and then increase the value of your Frost Nova Doomsayer the next turn. This is a minor one though, your play was fine.

Turn 6, there is absolutely 0 merit to playing Coldlight over Healbot that turn. Healbot heals you for 8, puts a bigger minion into play, spends more Mana and does not draw an Aggro deck more cards.

Turn 7, Frostbolt the 2/3, what are you holding them for? You have 2 of them in your hand. You also should have traded into the Creeper to remove all Beasts from the board, plays around Houndmaster, Kill Command, Scavenging Hyena etc. Also sets up a better Flamestrike.

Turn 8 I would have just Flamestriked.

Turn 9 Flamestrike is fine, but you should have pinged the 2/1 Creeper first, that way you clear both 1/1s

Turn 10, just double Healbot and go to 25, again you're just giving the aggressive deck fuel with the Coldlights.

Against the Gahzrilla, your play was fine up until you had 6 Mana left, then you should have just Doomsayer, Deathlord.

 

Second Game:

Turn 5: Play Belcher instead of Deathlord, Belcher is more Mana efficient, and the Deathlord just dies for free on the board, never a situation you want.

Turn 7: Really not sure what your mentality was for not playing Belcher, that should have hit the board for sure. Then you would have had a minion on board the next turn, and been able to drop Healbot + Illuminator to gain a ton of Health.

Turn 10: Should have played the Illuminator along with the Echo, pinging the Hyena isn't that important since they're both walled out by the Deathlord anyway. And getting the extra 2/4 on board contests them both nicely, and starts to heal you.

The turn you played Echo on the Healbot, you should have simply Echo'd the Healbot and replayed the second one.

I might come back and look at the third game later, but I need to start my stream in a few minutes. Hopefully this goes some way to illustrate that you are making a LOT of misplays with the deck.

Sottle-I appreciate all of your advice..  I knew I was making mistakes, but I couldn't really see where they were.. I am going to go back over the matches to see exactly my errors.. Thank-you so much for the help..  smile.png Feel free to share any other tips as you see necessary..  smile.png

 

 

Ouch, watching my first match right now, I am seeing the errors you mentioned.. Well game 1 was definitely embarrassing...sad.png

 

 

So I tried to take your advice.. Though I won this game, I think I should have done better..

I've had some early success with this deck after only playing it for few days. One thing that gets me is Big Game Hunter. I've faced a variety of heroes and decks, none of which have any 7+ attack minions (probably about less than 30%). And when I do play it just to have the extra minion attacking, it get killed by a 2 attack minion before I get to use it. I know it will be useful eventually, but does anyone have a suggestion for a replacement for the card? Preferably 3 or 4 mana so I don't wreck the curve of the deck.

After playing this deck for a few months now, I believe I am very close to mastering it.. It is extremely effective against virtually every deck type..At least the ones I have encountered.. The problem I am having now, is all the new cards out from TGT. I really like many of them, but I am struggling to find the right deck to use them in, or the right combo of certain cards.. I have noticed, that when something I create fails, that I slowly start changing out the cards I have chosen, for card in this particular deck.. So, by the end of it all, I have Sottles fatigue deck again..  sad.png  Is this really all I know?

Well, I think I have found a deck that this fatigue can't beat ever... I don't know what else to call it except, hero power/inspire priest..  Since the release of TGT, I have had to change a bit how I use my cards, but most decks aren't too difficult... Except the hero power/inspire priest..    They are using, lightwarden, with aucheni, and spawn of shadows, and justicar etc... After justicar is played it is already close to game over, as they can heal 4 now..Any suggestions?

Just a note. The new torch card could be a really good addition here as it gives you two extra cards and makes you fatigue later. Not sure what to cut cause i am not too familiar with the deck but it was played against me and looked fine.

      Will these three new Treant cards see play in the meta? Or will they come up short like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood?
       
      Three new Treant-themed cards were revealed today by PCGamer:
       

       
      First up we have Dendrologist. The floor on this card is solid, as a 2 Mana 2/3 is passable in a pinch. The ceiling on Dendrologist is higher than you might think, as his Battlecry is quite strong. Druid might have more high-quality spells than any other class in the game (Wild Growth, Nourish, Ultimate Infestation, Branching Paths, Naturalize, and Savage Roar to name a few), which leads me to believe that Dendrologist will be a powerhouse if Druid gets sufficient Treant support in this expansion.
       

       
      3 Mana for 4/4 worth of stats is already a great deal on its own, and the added Treant synergy puts this card over the top. The fact that this card creates two bodies makes it even better in aggro decks that look to go wide and finish with cards like Fungalmancer. This is a very reasonable card to curve into on turn 3, and it hints that the Treant deck will likely be quite aggressive.
       

       
      Finally we get Mulchmuncher, a big fat Mech with Rush and a dangerously tempting Mana reduction effect. We know from experience with Corridor Creeper and Giant cards how strong it can be to play big Minions for low amounts of Mana, but it won't be that easy to reduce Mulchmuncher's cost. If the Mana Treants from Living Mana count as Treants for this card, then I can easily see Mulchmuncher as finisher in an aggressive Treant decks.
      Will these new Treant cards turn Force of Nature and Witchwood Apple into playable cards? Or do you think the Treant cards will fall flat like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      The latest Hearthside Chat with Peter Whalen revealed Supercollider, Flobbidinous Floop, and Whizbang the Wonderful from The Boomsday Project.
       
      In the latest Hearthside Chat, Senior Game Designer Peter Whalen explained some of the themes (science) and inspirations (more science) for The Boomsday Project. In doing so, he spoiled three new incredibly exciting cards. If you're interested in watching the video (which is just 4:59 seconds long), you can do so right here:
       
       
      Card Reveals
       

       
      This card gets an "A" for flavor, as I don't think its possible to come up with a better design for a card called "Supercollider" in a science-themed set.
      This Warrior weapon has the potential to be a 2 or 3 for 1, as it can set up trades quite easily if you attack your opponent's largest minion with it. However, attacking your opponent's largest minion means you will also be dealing plenty of face damage to yourself, making high amounts of armor gain a requirement for putting this card in your deck. For that reason, Supercollider plays excellently with Baku the Mooneater, and I expect it to see play in Odd Warrior decks.
       

       
      Next up is another card with an excellent name, Flobbidinous Floop. This guy provides a Faceless Manipulator-style effect for Druid decks for just 4 Mana, which will almost certainly make him a combo piece in a variety of Druid decks. Between Innervate, Twig of the World Tree, and Biology Project, there will almost certainly a few new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop. He can also be used in Big Druid decks one turn after playing a huge minion, such as Ysera, Hadronox, or The Lich King, to become a 3/4 copy of a card with a powerful effect. Expect to see plenty of Flobbidinious Floop in the new meta!
       

       
      Next we get Whizbang the Wonderful, which is one of the most unique and exciting cards in the history of Hearthstone. What does he do? Let me show you:
       

       
      Whizbang the Wonderful replaces your entire deck. He replaces your hero, and he names your new deck "Whizbang is Wonderful". When you enter a game with this deck, you will be randomly handed 1 of 18 recent deck recipes by Blizzard at the start of the game.
      Will Whizbang be competitively viable? Almost certainly not, but I think that question is almost entirely missing the point. By adding Whizbang to the game, Blizzard has offered new players a way to access 18 different for just 1600 dust! Though its unlikely these 18 premade decks will be 100% meta optimal, they will almost certainly be viable enough for newer players to climb the earlier ranks while playing a wide variety of decks and learning new cards. This is the closest thing that Blizzard will probably ever do to selling pre-constructed decks (something that many other cards games do), which in my eyes is a major step forward. Will tryhards be disappointed when they open Whizbang? Probably. But not every Legendary minion needs to be a home run for the hardcore audience. Whizbang is the new player's best friend, and will surely add much more joy to the game of Hearthstone than he takes away.
      What do you think about today's spoilers? Will Supercollider see play? Can you find any new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop? And are you as excited about Whizbang the Wonderful as I am? Let us know in the comments what you think about these new cards, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this new Mech card could be a serious player in the meta.
       
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" has revealed another new Magnetic card from The Boomsday Project, called Annoy-o-Module:
       

       
      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this guy gains Magnetic and 1/2 worth of stats for just 2 Mana! The stats and keywords this card instantly adds to another Mech seem quite strong when you compare it to Blessing of Kings, which adds 2 more Attack to a minion but does not add Divine Shield and Taunt. This card isn't awful when played on it's own, and it plays well in a deck with Corpsetaker. Annoy-o-Module checks enough for boxes for me, and I full expect it to see play in the upcoming meta.
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" is short but sweet, and you can watch the full video right here:
       
       
      Do you think Annoy-o-Module impact the game as much as Annoy-o-Tron did? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      Use Mini-Rag to destroy enemy minions and level up your"Wow!" emote in this week's Tavern Brawl.
       
      In celebration of The Midsummer Fire Festival, this week's Tavern Brawl is all about Ragnaros, Lightlord. Well, Mini-Rag to be more specific:
       

       
      A 2/3 Ragnaros with Immune will start the game on one side of the board. At the end of each turn, Mini-Rag will deal 1 damage to a random target on the other side of the board for each Attack he has, then swap to the other side of the board. Each time he kills an enemy minion he will gain 1 Attack, growing in power as the game progresses.
       

       
      Due to the sudden pressure that Mini-Rag applies to both players, I highly recommend playing an Aggro deck. I used Odd Rogue in my first game to take down an Odd Hunter. You could also play an anti-aggro deck to try and counter all the aggro decks running around, but be sure to play some self-healing such as Branching Paths or Healing Rain.
       

       
      The Tavern Brawl will track how many minion kills that Mini-Rag racks up. After 8, 30, and 60 Minion kills, you will level up the fireworks in your "Wow!" emote. This is a returning Tavern Brawl from last year's festival, and your running total of Mini-Rag kills from last year's festival carries over to this year. Happy hunting!
