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.

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)

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      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!
