It's really, really good, but yes it is replaceable with another powerful Midrange minion like Piloted Sky Golem.

Important info was left out of the strategy of the deck which i need to be answered. First of all, this deck is a great all-round deck you can't find a lot of other decks like this. On the strategy part let's say i couldn't get my ancient of lore until turn 8 or 9 against control warrior and i have let's say 3 cards in my hand and he played Alexstraza should i heal once with ancient of lore or twice? I have the same question against other aggro decks when my health is around 10.

So, here's the reason why I can't put every single strategy interaction into a guide.

"It depends"

- Do you have the BGH in your hand? Or any way to remove the Alex? If no, then you need to draw to get to the BGH

- Does he have a Weapon equipped? If no, he can't do 15 damage from an empty board anway, so you still draw.

- Do you have everything you need in your hand to win the game? If you have a couple of decent minions and the finisher combo in your hand already, sure you can go ahead and heal to be safe.

Like, I could go on. But Hearthstone isn't a simple black and white game, that's why I can't just explain how to play in every situation, because there are literally millions of permutations.

Against Aggro decks, it's generally fine to heal with it if you're at low life though.

Sottle, appreciate your work as always. Do you think Hogger would be a good fit for this deck? And is he considered a beast? What's your take on Taunt Druid style decks? Thanks in advance for your help.

Probably one of the worst decks I have ever played.  It's great if you like to wait until turn 5 to play anything.

      This week's episode features a fresh take on a popular deck, courtesy of Casie.
      Can you guess the next move?
      Situation #22: Let's Even the Odds
      Picking up where we left off last week, we find ourselves in the middle of an odd/even matchup between Warlock and Shaman. I picked this situation partially because it was an interesting spot with many options available to us, and also because its a ladder situation I highly doubt any of my readers have encountered before:

      Commenters quickly identified several key factors about this matchup, namely that Defile and Hellfire are off the table for our opponent and that the only "board clear" available for our opponent is Despicable Dreadlord. Our opponent is more likely to have single target removal (such as Voodoo Doll) or is looking to play a demon-related 5 drop next turn in Skull of the Man'ari, Possessed Lackey, or Doomguard.
      Bozonik summed up this situation excellently in his comment from last week's thread:
      There seemed to be a consensus among commenters that "Option 1", Hero Power + Sea Giant was the line here. It puts a big nasty minion on the board, applying pressure and forcing our opponent to have Voodoo Doll. In the heat of the moment I went with "Option 2", the full clear, but after looking back on things and reading over the comments I believe Hero Power + Giant was the correct line. Despicable Dreadlord is really the only card which gives us serious trouble next turn (since our opponent won't be able to play Possessed Lackey and kill it) and this line plays around Dreadlord while applying just as much pressure as the other options.
      I was secretly hoping that the tap + Giant wasn't the correct line here (because its the most obvious one), but the obvious solution is often the correct one. If you're ever in a situation such as this where you have no idea what your opponent is up to, it's probably best to go for the "obvious" line and not get cute.
      Situation #23: Broken Mirrors
      Today's deck comes courtesy of Kevin "Casie" Eberlein, who cut the dragon package from Mind Blast Priest to turn the deck into something with much more of a combo/aggro feel to it. Many pros are pegging Mind Blast Priest to be the next "best deck in the meta" after the nerfs drop, and Casie's list has a serious advantage in the mirror match:
      Though I didn't find nearly as much success with the deck as Casie did, it did provide me with plenty of interesting situations for What's the Move! Here's the one I ended up choosing for this week's episode:

      It's turn 2, we're on The Coin, and our ladder opponent just played a Wild Pyromancer. For the purposes of this exercise, we can say that we're 100% confident our opponent is on Mind Blast Priest. However, this isn't a mirror match at all. We have Prophet Velen, Holy Smite, two copies of Holy Fire (most Mind Blast Priests run just one), and Lifedrinker in our deck, which gives us a huge advantage in late-game Anduin vs Anduin races. Knowing that we have an advantage in the late game should color our decision heavily on turn two, where have a surprising number of options available to us.
      So, what's the move?
