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.

      The HCT Summer Championship took place from 13-15 October 2017. The top four players advanced to the World Championship in January.
      After three days of competition the winner was   Surrender, who joins Planet Odd teammate Hoej at the World Championship. Surrender won a tense final 3-2 against   Orange, with the final game being a Highlander Priest mirror. In that game, Orange chose to mill Surrender for five cards to attempt to burn the combo, but the attempt failed. The VoD of the final can be found here.
      Listed below are the other finishing positions, and the number of packs you will receive for picking each player as your champion in the "Choose your Champion" promotion.
      Finalists, 4 Packs: Surrender, Orange. 
      Semi-Finalists, 3 Packs: JasonZhou, Purple
      Quarter-Finalists, 2 Packs: Empanizado, OldBoy, Pavel, Tom60229
      All other players were worth 1 Pack.
      All of the decks from the event can be found on our new esports section here.

      For the first time, the Hearthstone World Champion won't be determined at BlizzCon.
      It was noticed that European venues weren't getting much love in this year's Hearthstone Championship Tour, but it turns out that the World Championship finals will take place in Amsterdam!
      HCT will finish its journey in the Beurs van Berlage Conference centre, lasting from Thursday 18th January 2018 until Sunday 21st January 2018.
      Anyone who physically attends the World Championship will get the following card back, while they will also be able to participate in on-site tournaments:

      The tournament's format will be the same as all other seasonal Hearthstone Championships. 16 players will fight for a total prize pool of $1,000,000 USD! Eight players have qualified so far from the Winter and Spring Championships: Ant, DocPwn, Fr0zen, Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, SamuelTsao and ShtanUdachi. Four more players will qualify from the Summer Championship, that is currently going on this weekend. And the last four players will be seeded from the highest HCT point earners from each region (Last Call slots).
      A question remains: without the World Championship this year, will there be any e-sports events at BlizzCon? According to its schedule, the answer is yes! There will be a Hearthstone Inn-vitational, where four teams of three Hearthstone personalities each will compete against each other in various formats; there is also the NA Tavern versus Tavern tournament.
