Jarraxus is pretty important if you're going for the anti-aggro build, since it's a last ditch emergency health gain when you'd otherwise just lose to Hero Power from Hunter for example. Do you have Alexstrasza?

Unfortunately no. So far 2 healbots have served pretty well, but obviously jaraxxus is great trump card. I'm going to save up for him because this is one of my favorite decks now, but is there any decent replacements for now?

What would you suggest I cut if I'm dead set on slotting Sylvanas into the deck? I find myself using the second hellfire for burst damage more often than clear, so maybe that?

Priest vs Handlock is one of the worst matchups in the game, it happens in card games unfortunately, not a great deal you can do about it.

"has 7 cards to active ancient protector"

incorrect, acording to the deck it has 5 cards, becuase you take 1 owl and 1 shadow flame not 2 of each?

I'd like to suggest swapping out Zombie Chow for Gadgetzan Jouster.
Handlock uses a LOT of Minions with a cost over 5, and the Giants will give you an easy win if they're drawn in the Joust.
I've had great success with this, winning seemingly 9 out of 10 Jousts.
Also the added no-healing late game is a huge benefit towards winning.

Great Deck!  I still have to work on my decisions.  I can see the potential.

Any use for Kezan Mystic with the current Meta Game and all the Paladin decks?

 

Thanks for your help!

Kezan Mystic doesn't do anything against the Secret Paladin decks. The reason you never saw Secret Paladin up until now is that Paladin Secrets all suck in isolation, it's only when you play 5 at once with Challenger that they're super broken.

Because of this, playing Kezan to steal one Secret from a Pally is still super weak and not worth your time, especially in this deck.

Thank you for your reply!

I am still 50/50 win/loss in the current meta. I saved up to make this deck. I am desperate to make it work!

Is it ok to replace a mountain giant with owl since against aggro you usually won't be able to have enough cards to play mountain giant cheaply enough?

If you're playing against exclusively Aggro decks, then sure, but you need the Mountain Giant against anything slower.

This is the worst deck I have ever seen on this site. Why anyone would thinnk this POS can be a "legendary" ranked deck is beyond me. This crappy waste fo time actually took me back to level 20. Thank god you cant lose any more stars  beyond that point. I thought I was just playing it wrong but, after much exasperation I read the tips for using it and it turns out Im plaing it EXACTLY like the OP reccommends.

 

TL;DR

 

F%$&* this deck

It always makes my day when people make these sorts of comments on decks that are absolute staples in the Hearthstone meta. Just a staggering level of ignorance.

 

It's Handlock, it's been a tier 1 or 2 deck in Hearthstone for over a year. You're playing badly.

Hello

Thanks in advance for replay.

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      It’s the Headless Horseman’s favorite time of year, and he’s returning to the Hearthstone tavern from October 17 through October 31 to host another a blowout Hallow’s End celebration for everyone! If you dare to brave a tavern decked in delightfully dreary decorations, you’ll find that your horrific host has also planned some spine-tingling treats and chilling challenges!
       
      Tempting Treats
      The Headless Horseman is handing out ghoulish goodies just for logging in! Log in between October 17 and 10 p.m. PDT on October 31 to receive a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card and an Arena ticket.

       
      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party
      During Hallow’s End you can experience dual class Arena* with an added twist: Each of the nine classic Hearthstone Heroes will be attending in costume!

       
      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.
       
      Wise monster hunters avoid the haunted wood during Hallow’s End, so the creepy creatures of the Witchwood are taking the opportunity to find out which among them is the strongest! Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.
       


       
      There’s a feast of fearsome fun to be had at the Headless Horseman’s Hallow’s End hootenanny. Don’t forget to check out a Hallow’s End Fireside Gatherings Tavern near you and get Nemsy Necrofizzle as the celebration continues!
       
      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.

      Some balance changes will be made next week and they will be announced before the reset, on Monday 15 of October.
      It's difficult to guess which cards will be targeted, but there has been a lot of talk about Giggling Inventor lately.
      Here's the announcement of the announcement:
