very good. in the mirror matchup or against control priest or handlock where both decks fo into fatigue the 4 armor every turn makes a huge different.

Justicar Trueheart or Harrison Jones? I have this deck, but with Jones. Do you think a change to Justicar would be better?

Sure. I removed my HJ and so far I'm ok without it.

I'm running nearly the exact same deck (harrison and rag vs alex and boom). What do you think about subbing a garrison commander for shield maiden? It gives a good early drop that could contest aggro and could really help with late game, especially after a varian where the maiden would just be a 5/5 body.

i didnt remove harrison i think harrison is still a very good tech card agaisnt many decks i dont run varian neither as he is too random and you lose sometimes many important battlecrys from the minions summoned and then the next turn equality+consecration boom! just concede. i also keep both shieldmaidens, they are important so survive in the aggro matchup. the only inclusion that i made was justicar trueheart and remove ragnaros for ysera. this is my deck and im having excellet win rate on ladder.

2 execute

2 shieldslam

2 armorsmith

2 cruel taskmaster

2 fiery war exe

2 shieldblock

2 acolyte of pain

1 big game hunter

2 deathbite

2 sludge belcher

1 brawl

1 harrison jones

A lot of questions about Justicar, so i'll just make a general post.

I'm not a huge fan of it yet, but I am fighting against the tide, many other top players consider it good in this deck. I'm still not sold, the tempo loss is just so insane when you play it, even in a deck that isn't particularly concerned with tempo like this one.

You'd rather have "just a 5/5 body" from Varian than a 2/3 with upside in almost every world. You already have plenty of stuff to contest aggro in this deck, and Shieldmaidens are just too good in the mid-game.

I just went on a win streak to Rank 10 to Rank 5 with this deck. Justicar Trueheart is a very solid minion and has helped me survive very tough scrapes against Aggro (and one instance against a Pirate Rogue), and of course the boost to shield slam was awesome against control matchups. I ended up swapping out the Whirlwind for a second Brawl, as I found it was necessary with Secret Paladin, Dragon Priest, and Zoo/Handlock running around. CW is my favorite class and I'm glad to see it's still going strong in TGT.

Also, since I've been playing a lot of this deck, I've noticed Varian isn't that useful in most games, and his effect might cause you to die to fatigue or not pull out any relevant minion (because by the time it's safe to play him, you've probably drawn plenty of other big minions). Would you ever consider swapping him out for, say, Baron Geddon? Or the Shieldmaiden? Baron Geddon has been in CW ever since BRM and is helpful at clearing away annoying minions, especially with Token Paladin on the rise.​​

Baron Geddon has been in and out of Control Warrior ever since forever, not just since BRM. He can be a decent tech card every now and again, but he's not core to the deck. You can certainly add him in if you feel like he'd improve your matchups against what you're playing.

Shield Slam is a craftable Warrior Epic, you need to make them in your collection for 400 dust each, or open it from Classic Packs.

I'm thinking of swapping in more cards with "end of turn" effects (Rag, Geddon, etc.) so they can proc when pulled by Varian.  Good idea?

Need some sub ideas if this will be viable

 

I am lacking Ragnaros (though not included here), Baron, Harrison Jones, Varian, Justicar, and finally Grommash.

I always have been wanting to try CW and got around 2800 dusts now. I know Grommash should be a instant craft if I were to play CW but I'm asking for opinions if I'll be losing on a lot of potential or do you guys find CW to be good in this meta?

 

Some worthy legendaries that I have are Ysera, Sylvanas, Dr Boom, Nexus champ Saraad and recently crafted Alex. Will it be good enough and call it a CW deck if I throw in Grommash?

And, what should my next craft be after Grommash for CW?

 

I have all the other epics, even one copy of gorehowl. I have been running the dragon CW deck pre TGT but the results aren't to my expectation and liking.

The Legendaries at the top of the curve are quite flexible, so you should be fairly ok with what you have + Grom and Gorehowl, Try it out and let us know how it goes?

Love this deck. Only change I tried was swapping Varian with Ragnaros ( used him few times but not a big fan of it), and adding Second brawl in place of whirlwind. I'm having hard times with secret pally, pure amount of secrets put me usually in a difficult situation when I try to get rid of the minibot and tokens in first turns. Then call to arms pop out and mr 5 secreta pops out after that. Any tips How to deal with them ? Thanks

Depends on the scenario in which the 6 drop was played, but Control Warrior should have the answers to deal with it. You need to attack with something first, then once the Noble Sac and Avenge have triggered, you can either Execute the buffed 6/6 if it was the only minion in play, or Brawl if it was played on a large board. It does require that you have the right answers at the right time, and Mysterious Challenger is immensely powerful, but Warrior is for sure one of the classes that can survive it the best.

      The Americas Spring Playoffs and Championship were played over the weekend of May 28-29.
      The new Americas Champion is Muzzy.  Muzzy has long been touted as one of the best ladder players in the world, but has previously not converted this into any big wins. He will go to the World Spring Championship in Shanghai in July, alongside DiegoDias, Ant, and Kuonet who rounded out the top four.
      The tournament was a grueling one, with many players bringing Control Decks, and some of the rounds of Swiss lasting over 3 hours. The archetypes brought by the top four are listed below:
        Muzzy: Control Paladin, Giant Miracle Rogue, Jade Shaman, Quest Warrior
        DiegoDias: Jade Druid, Murloc Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
        Ant: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
        Kuonet: Discover Mage, Control Paladin, Evolve Shaman, Quest Warrior
      As you can see, the meta seems to be healthy, with many viable options.
      Next week is the APAC Spring Playoffs, at which point all sixteen qualifiers for the World Spring Championship will have been decided.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      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.
