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.

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)

      A new video shows how much work went into creating the art, animation and sound of Kobolds & Catacombs.
      Ben Thompson and Jomaro Kindred talk about the artistic direction of Hearthstone's latest expansion, while Hadidjah Chamberlin explains how she brought life into the board by creating most of the expansion's card effects. Lastly, it's always impressive to see the voice actors at work; they are all very talented!

      The first week of K&C has brought has many surprises, including Corridor Creeper and the No-Minions Hunter deck.
      After just one week with the new Kobolds & Catacombs cards it feels a little early to declare a definitive tier list for the competitive ladder. It's safe to assume that the best decks from the previous format, Tempo Rogue and Highlander Priest, will remain competitive options in the K&C meta, but many new decks have already been discovered which appear more than capable of keeping up with the top decks from KFT.
      The first week of K&C has been packed with surprise stand-outs and unexpected strategies. A staggering number of powerful new Epic cards are defining a number of new archetypes, while a decent number of cards which were expected to define the meta have yet to find a home. To help catch you up to speed on the state of the ladder, let's count down ten of the biggest surprises from the still-developing K&C meta:
      #10 - Big Spells Mage

      Five of the ten new Mage cards were designed around the Big Spells theme, yet Mage isn't even the class which is currently making the best use of Spiteful Summoner and Grand Archivist. Dragon's Fury was predicted to be one of the top cards in K&C but Big Spells Mage has failed to put up impressive results. Endemic Mage spells such as Frostbolt, Arcane Intellect, and Primordial Glyph drag down the power level of cards like Raven Familiar too far to justify their inclusion in Big Spells decks, yet the minion-based replacements for these cards have yet to prove themselves as suitable tools for controlling the board in the early game. With how aggressively the current metagame is shaping up to be, Big Spells Mage will need to find a way to control the board before turn five if it ever wants to compete.
      #9 - Druid Decks

      Coming out of Knights of the Frozen Throne, Druid laid claim to three of the best decks in all of Hearthstone: Aggro Druid, Jade Druid, and Big Druid. Though none of these decks have become unplayable K&C, it'd be difficult to argue that any of them are Tier 1 options at the moment. Dire Mole was a huge pickup for Aggro Druid, the Master Oakheart/Dragonhatcher package has provided Big Druid with a consistent late-game plan, and Lesser Jasper Spellstone has given Jade Druid a meaningful tool for interacting with troublesome minions in the early game, but it seems as though the other classes have improved far more than Druid has. Druid's Recruit sub-theme has seen moderate success, and the archetype still has plenty of room to improve as the meta matures. Despite Druid's lackluster results so far, I'd expect that the class has far too many powerful tools to ever become irrelevant. I wouldn't be surprised to see a new-look Recruit deck start to put up results in the coming weeks.
      #8 - Tempo Mage

      Tempo Mage was a deck that teetered on the edge of Tier 1 throughout the KFT meta, but it appears to have broken through in K&C thanks to Aluneth and Explosive Runes. Many pro players are calling Aluneth the best card in the set despite the fact that it only sees play in aggressive-slanted Mage lists. Tempo Mage has always done a great job at pressuring its opponent's life total, but Aluneth has given it the tool it needed dig for the Fireballs and Firelands Portals is often needs to close out the game. This is to say nothing of Explosive Runes, which has managed to exceed its lofty expectations and has cemented itself as a devastating tempo play off Kirin Tor Mage. Tempo Mage already feels like a well-oiled machine, and I expect the deck remain a consistent force throughout the K&C meta.
      #7 - Call to Arms

      Before K&C was released there was a debate as to the best way to build a deck around this powerful new card. Should you throw it in a deck with Prince Keleseth to Recruit buffed-up one drops? Should you put in a Murloc based deck, even though Murlocs get a lot of their value from Battlecries? Should you try to fill your deck with powerful hits like Dirty Rat and Knife Juggler at the expense of having good two drops on curve? Yes, yes, and yes. It turns out that getting three minions onto the board from one card is pretty great no matter how you choose to set it up.
      Aggro Paladin is one of the three or four best decks in the current meta and still has plenty of room to improve, as the current iterations feel quite far from being finely tuned. It's clear enough that Call to Arms will be the focal point of Aggro Paladin lists going forward, and probably fair to assume that the deck will only get stronger as players discover the most powerful uses for it. Everybody expected Call to Arms to be a great card, but I don't think they expected it to be quite as omnipresent as it has been thus far. 
      #6 - Control Warlock

      No deck picked up more cards from K&C cards than Control Warlock, a deck which deserves to be considered for early Tier 1 status. Voidlord gave the deck the trump card it needed to stall out the game against faster decks, while Rin, the First Disciple has provided it with the trump card it needed to beat other slow control decks. Both of these powerful late-game cards are held together by the massive bursts of lifegain the deck picked up from Dark Pact and Amethyst Spellstone, which simultaneously synergize with even more playable new cards from K&C: Kobold Librarian, Vulgar Homunculus, and Possessed Lackey. It seems as though Cataclysm is the only card from K&C which hasn't bolstered Control Warlock in some fashion, a fact which bodes well for the archetype's long-term viability.
      #5 - Spiteful Summoner 

      Very few neutral cards from K&C are seeing more widespread play than Spiteful Summoner, a swingy new minion which is already responsible for birthing several new decks. Spiteful Summoner is the big payoff for Sattelite's Big Spells Dragon Priest, which has been my personal favorite deck from the first week of K&C. Many Pirate Warriors have shed their Upgrades! to play Spiteful Summoner as a devastating curve-topper with Lesser Mithril Spellstone, and I wouldn't be surprised if a few other aggressive decks attempt similar changes. I'm less confident in the staying power of Spiteful Summoner than I am with some of the other Epic minions we'll talk about shortly, but the card has already shown more promise in the first week of K&C than most players would have expected.
      #4 - Carnivorous Cube

      Dedicated Deathrattle decks across all nine classes have struggled to put up results in The Year Of The Mammoth, having lacked a powerful payoff card other than N'Zoth as a reward for building around Deathrattle synergy. Deathrattle Rangers, Warlocks, Druids, and Priests seem to have found that payoff card in Carnivorous Cube.
      Carnivorous Cube generates decent value with minimal effort, netting two minions after it dies while providing a meaningful body when played on curve. It becomes devastating when combined with effects like Play Dead, Spiritsinger Umbra, and Faceless Manipulator, which break the symmetry of the card's Battlecry trigger. The best Cube list appears to be "Cubelock", which is capable of using Spiritsinger Umbra and Doomguard to one turn kill. Failing that, it can summon Voidlord a million times while making powerful tempo plays with Skull of the Man'ari and Possessed Lackey. I would very surprised if Carnivorous Cube wasn't featured in a few more viable decks that crop up in the coming weeks. 
      #3 - Leyline Manipulator

      Leyline Manipulator was pegged by the Hearthstone community to be one of the top new cards from K&C, but after one week it's seeing virtually no play. Elemental Mage isn't close to being a competitively viable deck, and the Questless OTK Mage lists have failed to supplant the Quest-based versions. A major part of the reason that this card has underwhelmed is that it doesn't lower the mana cost of Shifting Scroll as players predicted it would. It seems unlikely that the Questless OTK Mage deck will suddenly discover a new piece of technology which will make the deck competitively viable, which rests the hope for Leyline Manipulator on the emergence of Lesser Ruby Spellstone and Elemental Mage. I wouldn't hold my breath.
      #2 - Corridor Creeper

      It's probably fair to say that no card was more poorly evaluated by the Hearthstone community than Corridor Creeper. Most players (including myself) pegged Arcane Tyrant to be the next big thing, yet Corridor Creeper is the card from K&C card which is currently seeing the most widespread play. It's way easier to reduce the cost of Corridor Creeper to two or less than players expected before getting their hands on the card, which has made it a two-of inclusion in virtually every aggro deck in the current metagame. It's even starting to replace Bonemare in certain lists, implying that it's a better card than Bonemare. It's safe to say that crafting a pair of Creepers is a wise investment of dust, as we're likely to be seeing two copies of this card in every Hunter deck from now until it K&C rotates from standard. Well, almost every Hunter deck.
      #1 - No-Minions Hunter

      Hi Reddit! Remember these cards?
      To My Side! was the laughingstock of r/Hearthstone when it was first spoiled, yet the No-Minions Hunter deck is currently posting higher winrates than any other Hunter archetype. To be fair, the best card in the deck is Lesser Emerald Spellstone, but there's absolutely no denying that Rhok'delar and To My Side! are powerful payoffs for what has been a viable deck in the early meta.
      No-Minions Hunter is very difficult to beat when it curves Greater Emerald Spellstone into To My Side!, but I have my doubts about the deck's staying power. It performs worse at higher ranks, suggesting that skilled players can find ways to beat it. If you can avoid getting blown out by Explosive Trap and Wandering Monster then you'll enter the midgame with a board advantage against No-Minions Hunter, which typically struggles to play to the board until turn five. Regardless, No-Minions Hunter is great against classes without 3 damage board wipes for Greater Emerald Spellstone, such as Rogue and Druid, and will likely remain a powerful yet meta-reliant deck for the remainder of The Year Of The Mammoth.
