What are your thoughts about Justicar Trueheart in this type of deck, and what card could be cut to fit it? Is the 6/3 body just too weak even though the value it can provide with the hero power is so good? I'm just seeing some pretty crazy things you could do with justicar in this deck but maybe it is just a little too slow and weak to actually work in practice.

Sottle, awesome deck.  I was wondering why we're going more in the direction of Defender of Argus in these midrange pally decks? I saw Trump added them as well.  It does seem to help against zoo which is a tough matchup I've noticed so that's good.

 

Looking forward to a control/dragon pally deck I hope!?  Been playing around with solely dragon and dragon/control with some good luck.

Yeah, i'm not convinced on Justicar just yet. The initial play of the 6/3 is just so low Tempo in any Midrangey type deck. If you want to play it, it's probably in place of Sylvanas, or Boom, since Boom is the only BGH target, and I just don't see those cards being worse than Justicar.

Argus is great in any deck that can reliably put stuff on the board, it doesn't need to be a defensive minded card, although that is a nice byproduct. With the addition of Murloc Knight to this deck alongside Muster from GvG, you generate so much stuff on the board now that DoA almost always has a target.

Hey, this is a very good deck. But can we possibly discuss the harder match ups or what are the main weakness of this deck? biggrin.png


P.S.: salty salty opponent (it's me, yup T_T)

Weakness of this deck is mainly that it lacks real bite in the late-game, so sometimes it struggles to close a game out because of a lack of damage.

Other than that, it's really solid across the board, you have answers for pretty much everything, and you're able to play initiative.

Hey one month old player here,

 

I did some crafting to make this deck and some substitutions since I have a rather limited collection. I would be happy if anyone can comment on them, and any suggestion is appreciated:

 

- I don't have any Knife Juggler so I added a Dire Wolf Alpha + an Acidic Swamp Ooze.
- I don't have the second Argus, so I added a Blessing of Kings since I like that card, but I'm not sure at all whether it is relevant to this deck's archetype.

-I don't have Lay on Hands, the second Quartermaster, Tirionfording and Dr.Boom. Instead I play Argent Commander, Stormwind Champion, Kel'Thuzad and a second Sludge Belcher.

Aside from these, can I have some insight on why Warhorse Trainer, Silver Hand Regent, 2nd Zombie Chow and Mukla's Champion isn't included in this deck. They may be sub-optimal and/or too much synergy dependent, but for someone who doesn't have the complete deck, could they at least be good substitutes?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, all of those cards are reasonable substitutions if you're missing cards from the deck. None of them are outright bad. Your original substitutions are all quite sensible.

Hey Sottle, 

 

after a week or two from TGT release, would you still prefer Tuskarr Jouster over Antique Healbot?

I feel like the card is in the deck mainly for the heal, not only against aggro, but also against Midrange Druid as well as Control Warrior or Freeze Mage. Against all of these decks, you have a very real chance of losing a Joust (I feel like this chance is already given against Face Hunter, though it is quite slim admittedly), and I don't think the extra +2/+2 really make up for the huge gamble you take.

 

Other than that, great deck! I am using a similar list to great success (-1 Tuskarr Jouster, -2 Murloc Knight, +1 Antique, +1 Loatheb, +1 Justicar)

I have played 20 games with it 0 wins. I got from 10 to 20 in ranked mode. I lost with agro, mid range and control, almost all classes. This is not a hate mail just an experience to share boys and girls. Synergies = 0. At least I got fun opponents to lose with. Lose or win equal fun! Love this game. Cheers!

I also prefer antique healbot to jouster.. sure the 5/5 is pretty good, but losing the joust might end up costing the game for me, especially against mages.. Also, what do u think about replacing 1 quartermaster with loatheb? I don't really like having 2 quatermasters in a deck since it is really dependent on the board situation.

What would be the best substitute for the one chow? I haven't bought that far into Naxx yet. :S

Haunted Creeper if you have it, don't remember precisely what the Naxx order is. Otherwise, Gadgetzan Jouster I suppose, but honestly you're probably better off just not playing the 1-drop and using another tech card that's fitting for the meta like MCT until you get it.

I've just played a similar deck, more like Strifecro's TGT midrange with Justicar and coghammer. And I've gone from rank 20-10 with I think 4 losses (all face decks).

 

The best neutral card in this deck imo is Justicar Truehart. It is all the late game you need. I've never lost to a control deck. There was one game where i drew terribly and had to fatigue a dragon warrior. But they just can't deal with the 2 1/1 spam and if you haven't used both quatermasters, I find everyone constantly trades for them so they also have a type of pseudo taunt. 

 

With regards to Heal Bot/Tuskarr Jouster. The 5/5 is a huge deal breaker. Against rush decks where you need the heal you win most of the time and against more control decks its 5/5 stats play around just about all AoE.  

 

For anyone curious, decklist:

 

2 Chow

1 Equality

1 Owl

2 Juggler

2 Shielded minibots

1 Coghammer

2 Muster

2 Aldor

2 Truesilver

2 Consecration

2 Murloc Knights

1 Shredder

2 Quatermaster

2 Belcher

1 Tuskarr

1 Justicar Trueheart

1 Dr.Boom

1 Lay on Hands

1 Tirion

 

last card is a toss up between Sylvanas, deffender of Argus and if you only que into face hunter/pally Holy Light.

Question, I'm climbing the ranks and the deck is absolutely fantastic.
However, lately Paladins & Warriors seem to be more frequent opponents. Because of that, my deck is facing lots of weapons. I'm in doubt wether to take out a quartermaster or even Sylvanas for a Harrison Jones replacement.

 

What are your thoughts on such a replacement?

Quartermaster cut is reasonable if you think Harrison will get a lot of value, playing with one QM was the standard for a while.

I just don't understand how to play this deck. I've had more success in ladder with a control paladin. I get fucked by almost everything. Really regret crafting Tirion.

The deck isn't particularly aggressive, and I think all the cards in the deck are more useful than Kings, that's basically it.

The deck has great synergy, so your comment that it doesn't leads me to think you are not seeing them and not taking advantage of them.

 

Synergies:

 

1. Play Knife juggler then play Muster for battle

2. Play Muster for battle then play Quartermaster

3. Play Murloc Knight, then use Hero power

4. Play Knife Juggler, then Murloc Knight, then hero power

5. Play Murloc Knight, Hero power, Defender of Argus

6. Play Knife Juggler, Muster for Battle, Quartermaster

7. Play Shielded Minibot, Defender of Argus

8. Substituting Trueheart into your deck gives further synergy with Quartermaster and Knife Juggler.

9. Equality, Consecrate

10. Equality, knife juggler, muster for battle

 

You sure it's synergy you're having issues with? The synergies aren't hard to put together.

 

For me, the weakest thing about this deck is lack of heal. I lose the joust as often as I win it (I probably lose it more than I win, actually) and I have indisputably lost some games because I lost the jousts.

 

Well, I had a steady climb to rank 9 but now I'm rank 10 again. No surprise I lost another joust; this time against Druid who used two cat forms. :-/

 

And another lost joust... I never liked the heal bot for its weak stats, but it sure has saved me tons of times.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
