Hello,

 

What would be a good replacement for Thaurissan? I'm trying Cairne but doesn't seem to work very well. Antonidas would be extremely bad? Do you have any other suggestion or Thaurissan is a must?

 

Ty!

I'm playing this deck and it works honestly well. However, it relies heavily on sunfire and it if it's not drawn on time the situation gets extremely hard. What could be taken out in order to add one extra sunfire?

It doesn't rely on Sunfury at all, you have multiple options to protect yourself when you activate you big Giants turn. Frost Nova, Ice Block etc.

You can cut one Sheep if you really want a second Sunfury

Is it possible to play this deck without alexstraza?

It is, but I guess it will cost you a game here and there. I have been climbing the ladder only with this deck this season. I found that Alexstrasza is really useful against Face Hunter or Zoo, if you manage to stall the game until Turn 9. I have used it to lower the health of my opponent to get them into kill range, but this deck is so strong in the late game, that in this case Alexstrasza becomes more of a winmore card.

So, I would advise replacing it with a card that helps against Aggro deck, like a second Polymorph for the occasional annoying minion (think Savannah Highmane or Doomguard), Blizzard (so you can follow up a turn 5 Frost Nova + Doomsayer that saw Doomsayer get killed or silenced, without having to wait for Turn 7 Flamestrike), or an additional early taunt, like maybe Annoy-o-Tron or Undead Ghoul. How's that for an explanation, Sottle?

I would love to try this deck out. BUT I don't have Sylvannas, and I have only 1 iceblock.. I have enough dust to make an iceblock, but what can I use in place of sylvannas?

A deck cant be a Giants mage, if it doesnt have all 8 Giants, like wtf

 

same as a deck cant be mono-red if it isnt MONO-RED

The title stands for the fact, that this is a variation of the old-school freeze mage deck, with the inclusion of giants.

Does Dragon Paladin play every Dragon?

Does Mech Mage play every Mech?

What on Earth are you talking about?

Blizzard, Acolyte of Pain, Ice Barrier, lot of potentially good cards that you can squeeze in. Even a single Frostbolt or Fireball can come in handy.

Hello, I'm fairly new to the game. I would like to know if blizzard would be a good addition to this deck? And if not, could you give me some examples of why it shouldn't be played?

It's not a matter of it being a bad card in the deck, it's just that you're limited to 30 cards. If you were to include Blizzard, something would have to get cut, and every card in the deck plays a pretty important role at the moment.

What about Antonidas? Seems he'd be useful due to lack of fireballs? Anyway, gonna try the deck out and see how I fair

The deck doesn't rely on burn, or have many cheap spells to combo with Antonidas in the same turn, so it's a pretty weak inclusion.

This deck is awesome, started playing HS at the end of July and I am rank 10 with this deck. What I like about it is that it is end game focused and has the necessary means to deal with all the insane legendaries with poly and bgh. 

 

Really satisfying gameplay, thanks Sottle. Can you recomend a Frost Giant deck for TGT? I feel like moltens maybe too slow in the meta come TGT. Pinging will become a big gameplay mechanic and the minions involved. Thanks.

I've been playing this deck for a few weeks now, and it wrecks just about everything I've encountered.  I love it!

 

What do you think about the inclusion of Kel'Thuzad?  Windrunner is a great minion, but I'm feeling like Kel'ty would be a better match for keeping a couple giants or sticky creeps on the board until I can finish off my opponent.  Similarly, the meta presently seems to not be full of aggro decks to use both Explosive Sheeps on, so I don't think I would miss one if I swapped it.

I think Sylvanas is significantly better than KT in this deck, so I wouldn't make that direct substitution, if you feel comfortable cutting an anti-aggro card for more late-game though, you can definitely try that and see how it goes.

      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!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party

      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.

Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.
       


       
      There’s a feast of fearsome fun to be had at the Headless Horseman’s Hallow’s End hootenanny. Don’t forget to check out a Hallow’s End Fireside Gatherings Tavern near you and get Nemsy Necrofizzle as the celebration continues!
       
      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.
