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.

      This Mage Legendary card was revealed in collaboration with Wronchi!
      If you remember from the expansion announcement video, Hearthstone's developers were sucked into Netherstorm and it's up to Levi the intern to rescue them! As he ventures into Boom Labs, he encounters Stargazer Luna.
      The video was made by Wronchi Animations, who have created many beloved and hilarious Hearthstone cartoons. There's probably going to be a second part, so expect more card reveals!
      Now, let's talk about the card itself.

      With a Netherstorm expansion, one would expect that the magnificent Kael'thas would have been the Mage Legendary. Instead, we get Stargazer Luna which is a very interesting card with a decent statline. She can complement perfectly Aggro/Burn Mage, but you could perhaps find her in Minion-based Mage decks: mostly Murloc Mage, but maybe Elemental Mage as well. She has potentially better tempo than Aluneth, but is more risky. You obviously don't want to play her on turn 3. Let the topdeck wars begin!
      The reveal schedule is unclear at the moment, but it should go as with previous expansions: an initial reveal livestream on July 23, followed by roughly two weeks of card reveals by community sites and personalities, then a final stream before The Boomsday Project releases on August 7.

      New features include Legendary spells, the Magnetic keyword, Omega cards and Project spells.
      The second expansion of the Year of the Raven was indeed related to Netherstorm, home of the unforgettable Dr. Boom, and it's called the Boomsday Project. Apart from the new features, five cards were also revealed.
      The announcement video has an appropriate 80s science fiction movie vibe, featuring notable faces from the Hearthstone team.
      It's Goblins vs Gnomes 2.0 as the Mech tribe is definitely going to return with a vengeance! There's a new keyword called Magnetic: Magnetic minions can either be played on their own or they can be fused with a Mech minion that's on the board to add to their health, attack and ability.

      Omega cards can also be played regularly. However, if you play them at 10 Mana Crystals, you will get a powerful boost. The Battlecry assures that the OP version cannot be cheated out. Druid, the only class that can ramp its Mana up, will surely find a use for this type of minion. Curiously enough, the Omega Defender isn't a Mech, even though it definitely looks like one.

      Projects are powerful spells, that will benefit both players. Assumedly, all classes will have a Project spell. "Research" and "Weapons" Projects were teased, with the latter probably belonging to Warrior.

      We've seen all kinds of Legendary cards: minions, Quests, Weapons, Hero cards. Now it's time for Legendary Spells to make their appearance. I wonder if there are any special rules when it comes to Discovering or playing discounted versions of Legendary Spells, because they can potentially be powerful. Here's the Rogue one:

      That's all with the new features, but don't forget: The Boomsday Project isn't all about mechs and projects. It's also about science, crazy discoveries and the manipulation of elements. Under this thematic, we can find the Shaman Legendary minion:

      It's almost certain that Dr. Boom will be making a grand return for this Hearthstone Expansion; after all, he's the big boss on The Boomsday Project. He was shortly teased in the announcement video: unfortunately, this time around not all classes will be able to enjoy the Dr. Boom goodness as he looks like a Warrior card. Lord Jaraxxus will also reinvent himself as a new Warlock Hero skin: Mecha-Jaraxxus!

      According to the official announcement post, the new expansion will go live on August 7, 2018 - a week earlier than August expansions from previous years. The official site of The Boomsday Project is also up!
      The Boomsday Project will also bring along new PvE Adventure content: The Puzzle Lab! It will go live on August 21 and from the description on the official site, it looks slightly different from the Dungeon Run and the Missions. Players will have to participate in successful experiments against nine bosses. These include goals like "Lethal", which is kill the enemy in one turn; Mirror, which requires you to create a perfect copy of your opponent's board; Board Clear; and Survival, which requires you stay alive from the opponent's attacks! You will earn the following card back for completing The Puzzle Lab:

      Here is the new Boomsday board:

      The login launch reward for The Boomsday Project will be three packs and a random Class Legendary card. A card reveal livestream will be held on July 23 at 10:00 am PST on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel.
      Pre-ordering The Boomsday Project has some additional perks compared to other expansions and two different options. You can preorder the normal Bundle which will contain 50 The Boomsday Project packs, a random Golden Legendary card from the expansion and the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back. Or you can get the Mega Bundle, which contains 80 packs, a random Golden Legendary, the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back and the Mecha-Jaraxxus Warlock Hero skin.
