You mention Aldor Peacekeeper in the guide but he's not listed in the deck? Is that a mistake?

Also wondering about the Aldor peacekeeper. Also, is it viable to cut one piloted golem for Cairne?

I'm having some tough time with those hunter aggro decks using this control deck. I'm usually going for muster for battle and shielded mini bot in the beginning but that doesn't help. Trying to pick of minions and use concecration or true silver by turn 4. It's usually over by round 9 or 10.

And of course those Priest are a pain... Hate that mind control card...

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I'm having a fun time against the other classes, thanks a million for sharing!

Those are both quite bad matchups for this deck, it happens. Against Hunter you just need to mulligan for the cards you describe and aim to control the board as much as you can, but after a point, you will just lose if you keep playing from behind. You need to try and find a turn where you can push damage back to the Hunter and start to race them if you are able to get on the board.

Against Priest, the game is very much about Mind Control as you have identified. You need to bait them into using Mind Control on a card other than Tirion, or slam Tirion immediately on turn 8 so it can't be Mind Controlled. If they haven't used it yet, you need to hold onto Tirion, as getting that card Mind Controlled is simply death in that matchup.

I have a lot of trouble against face hunter. I just get rushed down and even if i look for those early game cards like shielded minibot and muster for battle i still get rushed by turn 5 or 6. Any help with this matchup?

 

Love the deck with the other matchups keep up the good work.

This is quite a slow grindy deck, so fast decks like Face Hunter will punish you, that's pretty much their role in the metagame. Every deck will have its bad matchups.

I found the acolytes very hard to use, especially as there is only one peacekeaper in this deck. Any suggestions on how to use them correctly / arguments that explain the inclusion instead of e.g. Azure drake or a more stable 3 Mana minion?

Sorry to push this back on the first page. Any chance you could comment on the Acolytes in this deck, Sottle? (Or someone else experienced with this deck) Thanks!

Synergy with Aldor is the most common reason for their inclusion, you need a nice curve with The Coin of Acolyte into Aldor on the guy they play to contest your Acolyte. It's also a stopgap drop early against aggro decks with small minions like Creeper. It is a flexible card though, you can change one for a Mind Control Tech or Coghammer, or both if you like.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
