What do you think of running Onyxia as one of your big dragons and then squeezing in Bolvar somewhere, maybe for one of the belchers?  Seems like good synergy w/ Onyxia and Muster for Battle.

I suggest removing 2 shredders and replacing them with 2 Azure Drakes. I found that they are a better fit for the deck as a whole.

1. they are dragons so they will help blackwings Corruptors effect.
2. they are also easy to summon with dragon consort at 3 mana cost - this main not be the main strategy but if you lack the late game cards at a 8 mana cost you get to summon 2 powerful dragons and draw a card.
3. Finally as this post mentioned the deck lacks drawing power which is crucial to insure that you get the right cards for late game.

Shredders are just too good to cut. The problem that people have run into when trying to build Dragon decks is that other non-dragon cards are *just better*, so the successful Dragon decks tend to be the ones like this that keep the Dragon synergy to a minimum and use an otherwise successful core. If it's working for you though, then absolutely run with it.

I have found that I am facing a lot of argo decks and struggling to last against them. Is there any cards you would swap to help?

You can cut some of the late-game for Zombie Chows or Argus, but this deck is always going to be pretty vulnerable to Aggro because it plays a very high curve.

What about kel'thuzad instead of chromaggus? I know it's not a dragon, but with the amount of minions I keep getting on the board, it seems like it could be a good finisher, and chromaggus hasn't given me much value.

This is just a garbage deck.  I've played ranked matches over and over and over, literally 48 hours straight and I went from rank 6 to rank 16, and I am still dropping.  This isn't deck isn't worth the time it took to read.

This deck is incredibly fun to play, i dont have Yzera, and i recently got Alextraza so i tried to put her in instead. It turned out as a big succes, in severel scenarios my opponent have had 25-30 health getting to the 7-9 mana mark. Dropping Alextraza and putting them at 15 will then put you in a very favorable spot, it will also come as a total suprise for the opponent. In many of those scenarios you will also likely have a few minions on the board already, making you able to put your opponent from 30 to 10 in one swing. I highly recommend some of you try it! ( Sorry in case of bad english )

Just bought BrM and having lot of fun with this deck! Only cards that I don't have are Ysera and Dr Boom, which I have replaced with Alexstrasza (good for surprise nukes and late game health tactics) and Defender of Argus for countering aggro decks. Currently at rank 8, could be even higher if I wasn't such an impatient player. Anyways, thanks for this!

I don't have the paladin legendary, what would you suggest for a replacement?

I am not an expert player but I have been playing this deck for some time (except Ysera which I do not have, I replaced her with Loatheb, that works well overall), and Tirion is a huge addition to the deck, that's undeniable because it has immediate value and is super useful in later turns and it cannot be BGHed, and it can get you back into the game if you are late. The only strong card that does more or less the same in terms of comeback is Dr.Boom which is already in the deck. You could try another dragon (Alex or Onyxia) or maybe Ragnaros, but you really should craft tirion asap if you intend to play paladin, because it s core in nearly every paladin deck

I've been testing out this deck with the new twilight guardians instead of shredders, and chillmaw instead of one equality, and it seems pretty decent. The only a issue seems to be getting a bad starting hand against faster decks, but I guess that's to be expected from a deck with such high a curve. Still the extra taunts help to offset that a bit

Yeah honestly, I just don't think Pally is the right place for the Dragon deck anymore, I think they're just outclassed by Priest, Warlock and Warrior at least, perhaps Mage as well.

      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!
