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.

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.

      Ike's surprising Freeze Mage deck played a huge role in his perfect tournament run.
      Hot off of a top 8 finish at the HCT Americas Summer Championships, Mark "Ike" Eichner blew through the competition at DreamHack Denver to finish the tournament with a perfect 13-0 record. He capped off the tournament by defeating DrJikininki, the DreamHack Atlanta 2017 champion, 3-2 in the finals. An incredibly impressive accomplishment for his first ever DreamHack, Ike will be taking home $7500 and 15 HCT points for his victory.
      Ike's powerful tournament lineup featured the three unquestioned kings of the current tournament meta, Highlander Priest, Jade Druid, and Tempo Rogue. However, his unique Freeze Mage deck was the all-star of the tournament. Ike called the deck his top performer on Twitter and noted that it received the most bans in the top 16.
      You can check out his deck lists for the tournament (including his Freeze Mage list) here on Twitter.

      In episode number four of "What's the Move?" a fun OTK deck finds a creative way to handle a threat.
      I've been having way too much fun with a Stonetusk Boar OTK (One Turn Kill) deck on the ladder these past few days. It's been performing surprisingly well against both of the two most popular decks in the current metagame, Highlander Priest and Tempo Rogue, but the real reason to play it is because of how much variety it has to offer from game to game. It's incredibly difficult to pilot and never fails to create interesting situations - just like the one we'll be discussing today!
      Once again, I took some of the feedback from the previous episode to heart and did my best to incorporate it into this one. As this series is still young and in the process of honing on it's ideal set of parameters (such as the length of the video, the amount of depth it should go into, and the kinds of situations it analyzes), please feel free to let us know in the comment section how this episode compares its predecessors.

      The Ukrainian player is now part of G2.
      Lifecoach's spot had been empty for a while and someone had to fill in the gap, in order for the Fantastic Four of the Hearthstone division of G2 Esports to be remade. This person turned out to be Neirea, formerly of Team Liquid, who will join RDU, Thijs and Lothar. In fact, Neirea is already competing with his new team in the second week of the Trinity Series.
      Eugene "Neira" Shumilin has consistently ranked high in various major competitions since 2014. His breakout performance happened this year with team Ukraine placing 2nd in the Hearthstone Global Games and Neirea qualifying for the World Championship during the Spring Championship.
      We wish him the very best of luck!

      Shadowreaper Anduin can machinegun his enemies down at a proper speed.
      Patch 9.2, which went live yesterday, broke poor Shadowreaper Anduin, causing a huge delay when refreshing his Hero Power. This bug was quickly fixed today with a hotfix that can be donwloaded to your Hearthstone client:
      mdonais
      We are currently deploying a Hotfix to fix the speed of Shadowreaper Anduin's hero power.
      It slowed down in the patch yesterday. I don't know exactly why since I am not one of the engineers that fixed it but it sounds like it is a side effects of the unity upgrade we did. We have to rebuild a some things when we do a unity upgrade.
      Thanks!
      Mike. (source)
