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

What are the best replacements for Emperor Thaurissan and Dr. Boom? I have all the other cards.

Thanks in advance for replay.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a great way to try out some of the new cards from The Witchwood.
       
      Looking for a chance to try out some of the new cards from The Witchwood? This week's Brawl, titled "A Witchy Recipe", features preconstructed decks for each class which are built around some of the less-played cards from the new expansion, including many of the new Legendary minions from the set.
      Here are the names of some of the new cards you can try for yourself in A Witchy Recipe:
      Druid: Hand-size with Witchwood Apple, Ferocious Howl, and Wispering Woods. Hunter: Midrange Dragon/Poison with Carrion Drake, Vilebrood Skitterer, and Emeriss. Mage: Elemental Minions with Book of Specters, Archmage Arugal, and Bonfire Elemental. Paladin: Even Paladin with The Glass Knight and Genn Greymane. Note: If you're looking for a quick win, this deck feels like the most powerful of the bunch. Priest: Odd Priest with Chameleos, Glitter Moth, and Nightscale Matriarch. Rogue: Echo/Burgle with Pick Pocket, Tess Greymane, and Face Collector. Shaman: Battlecry Shaman with Blazing Invocation, Zap!, and Hagatha the Witch. Warrior: Rush with Darius Crowley, Town Crier, and Woodcutter's Axe. Warlock: Self-damage with Blood Witch, Deathweb Spider. and Glinda Crowskin. As usual, the reward for A Witchy Recipe is one pack of Classic.

      The team has finally responded to the community's concerns on the new Shaman legendary minion.
      Two weeks after The Witchwood's release, Team 5 has addressed the issues surrounding Shudderwock. Its animation will go faster and it will cap at 20 Battlecries. Hopefully, it will be less of a nuisance now. Lifedrinker will also receive a bump on its animation speed.
      I assume the fix will go live on April 26 along with the Monster Hunt.
      Jesse Hill
      Recently, our players have had feedback regarding the Shaman card, Shudderwock. We understand that the length of its Battlecry animation and other animations spawned from its Battlecry can be frustrating. In a future update, we will be doubling the animation speed of Shudderwock’s Battlecry so it will lessen the impact on the overall pacing of your current Hearthstone match. In addition, the amount of Battlecries Shudderwock can reproduce will be capped at 20.
      We will also be speeding up the animation of Lifedrinker for similar reasons.
      Thank you for your feedback, and we’ll see you in the Tavern.
      Cheers!

      The rewards are different for each rank. You receive the chest for the best rank you achieve, so do not be afraid of dropping a rank. Additionally, after reaching a milestone rank (ranks in bold), you will not fall below them that season again. This means that if you lose a game at rank 15 with 0 stars, you will not drop to rank 16, but rather stay at rank 15 with no stars.
      Rank Reward 25-21 None 20 1 golden common, 5 dust 19 1 golden common, 10 dust 18 1 golden common, 15 dust 17 1 golden common, 20 dust 16 1 golden common, 25 dust 15 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 5 dust 14 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 10 dust 13 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 15 dust 12 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 20 dust 11 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 25 dust 10 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 5 dust 9 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 10 dust 8 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 15 dust 7 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 20 dust 6 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 25 dust 5 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 5 dust 4 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 10 dust 3 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 15 dust 2 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 20 dust 1 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 25 dust Legend 3 golden commons, 1 golden epic You also receive a card back for winning 5 games during the season.
