I will likely try this out later but the one issue I could see as potentially troubling is lack of card draw and the ability to burn through cards quickly if you get a fast early game. I haven't played it yet so I definitely can't speak from experience on that, but it definitely looks like that could be an issue with the azure drakes removed. I suppose with fel reaver you don't want to have to much card draw anyway and in an ideal world you have an opponent on their heals into a fel reaver turn 5 anyway in which point they either find an answer quickly or the game is over anyway. Can you just address my concern or explain why it shouldn't be an issue? I'd appreciate it. Looking forward to trying it later.

I tried this deck and I have to be honest, it is quite possible one of the worst I've seen. Fel Reaver can chew through 9-12 cards with all of the cheap aggro/rush decks out there today. I do not recommend this deck at all and there are much better decks on this site.

May wish to remove Mad Scientist from this write-up since it's not in the current version of the deck nor are any secrets.  :)

I'm going to try this out. Personally, I like to drop Fel Reaver and hopefully have Ironbeak Owl in hand to follow up with a silence on him just in case the card burn gets out of hand. So I'm going to switch out either a Mana Wyrm or Clockwork Gnome and see how big a bully I become.

I have been testing this deck in ranked for the past 4 days. it is a really strong one and can definetly reach legendary with easily. You see most people ignore it and think that they can mill you down but before they can they die. and if it happens that they do kill your fell reaver they make an usual play that fucks up their turn to kill it. my results for playing this deck is currently =  42 wins 5 losses all against hunter. @ rank 8. 

 

Also i noticed that when i was playing this deck around rank 15~~ it was way harder for me to win then it was below rank 10

Same thing as above. i'm testing this deck now and is really powerful. the 2 times i've lost, fel ravel wasn't in my hand on the entire game.

As long as this is still true, it encourages me a lot to push to 10.

why no secret to summon copy of an enemy minion to help with card loss? How does Loatheb fit in this deck - avoid AOE card for 1 turn?

Mirror Image is slow and unpredictable for this deck.

 

Loatheb is good to drop alongside a Fel Reaver to slow down your opponent milling your deck, either turn 6 or 10,

Sadly reacheble rank should b changed((

This deck cant hold against new meta decks(

It definitely can reach legend rank and the rating should not be changed.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
