Trying it out a bit.  Fell from rank 8 to rank 9 messing with it for 8 matches.  Obviously, it's new to me and there is a learning curve, but I've lost to all 4 face hunters I played.  In this current meta where half of my games are against face hunters, I think this deck will struggle.  If you have any additional anti-aggro tips, I'd love to hear them.

Follow up:  2-6 so far with my 2 wins against Patron Warriors - Hellfire is amazing for those match-ups.  And, like I mentioned above, 4 losses to face hunters.  Not finding much use for bloodmage so far.  Also, with only 5 dragons, the dragon synergy cards can be a little hard to activate at times.  Might try swapping out Bloodmage and 1 Hellfire for maybe more dragons or another Zombie Chow since I'm facing so much aggro.

 

Edit:  Done for now.  Finished 3-6.  Good match-up is Grim Patron Warrior.  Bad is Face Hunter.

I don't get it at all.  I've gone 8-19 trying to learn this deck (played in ranked between 7-10).  In those 27 matches, I've NEVER gotten the pieces for a 1 turn Maly, Darkbomb, Soulfire combo.  I totally disagree with the previous poster... this deck is not consistent at all and is also very susceptible to aggro.

Is it possible to have both Chromaggus and Nefarian in this deck or just one or the other to make this deck work?

You can definitely add one more high value Dragon if you want to go that way. I think I saw Savjz playing a build that had both Nefarian and Malygos.

Against Aggro decks you shouldn't be playing to farm up combo pieces, you should be fighting for the board with the cards you have available and trying to outlast with Healbots and Taunt.

once again this deck is great for every mat h up except face hunter... even added taunt annoy tron and I definitely play to eliminate and gain control but I win only about 1 maybe 2 out of every 5 or 6 against face hunter... face hunter is about 80% what we play from 5-15, need a good answer to solve this issue it's been a problem way to long.

Great deck for every deck match up except face hunter again... from 5-15 I'm facing a ton of face hunter and winning about 2 out of every 6 or so... this is a constant problem Iv been having for a about 2 months and I think everyone else is also. iv added taunt and I play to eliminate/control board get heal bot etc... it's not working, I'd love a good answer to this face hunter issue.. it's all that's standing in my way to 5 under. I'm ranked 7 atm. Thanks sottle for all the help, can't wait to hear back!

Face Hunter is pretty weak right now in my opinion, and that opinion is shared by many. Most Hunter players at high ranks are running either Midrange or Hybrid. I think this deck beats Face Hunter to be perfectly honest, so does Patron Warrior, Flamewaker Aggro Mage, Control Warrior and Grinder Priest. Freeze Mage and Handlock are both slightly favoured as well, that's a huge chunk of the meta that the deck loses to.

This deck is god awful 

Thanks for your input.

 

 

Which card would you recommend removing for another high value dragon?

Probably Loatheb.

Can you play this deck a bit during a stream? I would like to see how to play it correctly I am just not able to do well with it but im not quite sure what im doing wrong. I push hard for board control as best I can but allot of times I still get overwhelmed.

This deck is total crap. I cant win vs controll wariors or face hunters. This deck goes over to fatigue stage because its countered so easely. 90% of the time i played this deck i went to Fatigue stage because i did not have enough firepower, never able to play malygos combo either because it gets cleared like immidiatly. This deck core is Malygos if Malygos is actualy dead you lose the match for sure and go to fatigue stage course you drew to many cards in the early stage.

All the QQ'ing because you didn't instantly hit Legend with a deck your learning to use is amusing. I woudln't expect to master a new deck instantly myself. Thanks for yet another fun to play GREAT deck Sottle, as always enjoy your input ! Also have to agree that while Face Hunter scared me the first few times it tore out my jugular, have since learned how to handle them and I didn't see them much for the last week in the 8-10 bracket. Happy Hunting !

Another awesome Dragon deck! Does take a little finesse and getting to know the deck to get it to play right but loving it! Don't understand all the complaints because a deck doesn't instantly take you from rank "x" to legend in 2 hours? Like everything else takes practice and time! Always enjoy reading your suggestions and advice, happy hunting!

If i wanted to add the rend blackhand to have more answers to big legendaries and also add some tempo and also keep my big mage hunter would the best choice be syphon soul right? And if i wanna add nefarian loatheb would be the one i could take out for him???

U are absolutely right man its an awesome deck and fun to play but like u said it takes pracrice to master it so u wont be ranking up at the beginning because u need to learn the deck first and what to mulligan for each type of deck u are facing and what to play.

For what it's worth I can't  get too far with this deck (probably because I suck) but I absolutely love it! It's soo fun.  One sub I did was to remove 1 Twilight Drake and replace it with Lord Jaraxxus for those close to death moments and when entering the "fatigue" stage.

 

In general on Mulligans I look for one of each 3:

1. Health, (Healbot, Jaraxxus or Earthen Ring Farseer (in that order of priority))

2. Hellfire (for anti-aggro)

3. A dragon (since some cards depend on having one in your hand)

 

I only play Emperor Tharussian when I have at least one of the following in my hand: Malygos, SoulFire.  This way, it is possible that you can get 18 damage in 1 turn (Malygos and both Soulfires if the other doesn't get discarded)

      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!

      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 1 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.
