Hello there!

 

I am thinking about running this deck in current meta smile.png Could you give me 1 or 2 replacements for Alexstrasza?

 

You think it is possible to get to legendary with it? I'm currently rank 5 and a bit bored with my midrange hunter smile.png

 

thanks in advance for any help smile.png

Alextrasza is very important in this build, running it atm and ever since I got that dragon I win way more often

Same here. I currently don't have Alexstrasza and am planning on crafting either an Alex or a Rag next not sure. But need to know a good replacement at the moment for her. Mind helping me out?

Hi guys I just started playing this deck recently but I cant seem to get out of rank 17 or 16 I keep losing to aggressive decks. I have been doing well against slow decks but just haven't faced many of those any tips or pieces of advise. I started using this deck at rank 16 by the way.

This deck is fun to play because people don't expect it.  Thanks for posting it.  I'm 7-6 with it so far over 3 days.  Hunter seems to give me the most trouble.  I'm usually dead on turn 7 before I'm able to get any of defences up.

 

Anyhow, thanks for the change of pace.  I'll probably keep messing with it when I'm bored of more standard decks.

I spoke too soon.  Went into a bit of a tailspin and ended up 8-10 overall.  I'm under 50% against priest (they thoughsteal all my high value cards like poly, belcher, nef, etc.), pally, and shaman (they are able to control the board - I can never get a foothold).  I'm no great player, but wanted to share my experience around ranks 11 and 12 in the ladder.

 

The deck is still fun as a change of pace, but for ladder climbing, I think you'd be just as (if not more) successful with tempo or mech mage.  Plus, those games are much quicker.

When I return to this deck, I think I'm going to try it without mad scientists to give me full control of when secrets are played.  This deck is more control than tempo and doesn't play mirror entity, so isn't aiming for any huge tempo swings.  You also usually have the mana to play them manually.  I think it's worth a try.  Not sure what I'll sub in... maybe fairie dragons or something.

My overall record on ladder with this deck is 29-14, just to put that out there. All of those games are at Rank 3+ and Legend.

Are there any decks in particular that give you more trouble than others?

I think it can be helpful to see the results of both experts and average players. I'll stop posting if me relaying my experiences takes away from what you are trying to accomplish.

I've been improving with this.  Up to 26-22 at rank 9.  Hunters are not a problem.  Spoke to soon about them.  My toughest match-ups are mirror control mages that play alot of secrets and control/maly shaman.  I've lost twice to maly shaman from like 27 health in one turn.

 

I do really enjoy the playstyle of this deck and will probably keep using it the last couple days of the season.

I see a lot of people at just about 50% win rate with this deck. That seems to be pretty average.

 

When things go your way with this deck, you win BIG time.

But there are so many decks out there that are too fast for this deck. You really do need to make the right decisions to make it work. Pretty sad that there are cool decks like this, and then you've got all those mouth breather face hunters and agro warlocks that have played the same deck for months.

 

Hope the new expansion can make some more varied play in this game or I see it headed downhill. Players dropping out like flies.

isnt the bloodmage thalnos any good in this deck, instead of zombie chow?

 

There really aren't that many spells in the deck for Bloodmage to always be useful, Chow is just such a good Aggro stopper.

I think this deck does just fine against really aggressive decks, it has all the tools to fight early and then survive late.

hey guys, I'd like to try this deck, but I'm currently missing Ysera, I believe she's not a key card in this deck, any recommendations for a replacement?

Try any other big dragon (Chrommagus or Malygos, not Deathwing) but I think Ysera is rather important.

I'm having a lot of fun playing this deck.  I'm around rank 14, and I auto-lose to paladin rush decks.  Any suggestions?

If you're encountering a lot of Aggro, you can cut one or two late-game cards for Zombie Chow, Cone of Cold, or Ice Barrier.

      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: 2 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!
