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

2 shielmaiden

1 sylvanas windrunner

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.

      Competitive Hearthstone fans can look forward to more tournaments and bigger cash payouts in 2018.

      Blizzard announced a set of sweeping changes to the way the HCT Tour will be organized in 2018. The new "Masters System" promises to make it easier than ever for professional Hearthstone players to win prizes and make it out to international events.
      Announced today on the official Hearthstone blog, the Hearthstone Masters System promises to make sweeping changes and improvements to Hearthstone's competitive tournament infrastructure:
      The marquee change to the HCT circuit will be the addition of "Masters Tiers". The rolling total of a player's HCT points for the previous three seasons will determine a player's Masters Tier, and each tier will reward players with increasing benefits. A 3-Star Master, the highest tier, is able to receive a $2500 appearance bonus for attending up to three HCT events per season, which can add up to a $22,500 per year in appearance fees alone! All three tiers will also offer free invitations to monthly online tournaments with cash prizes, as well as "end-of-year commemorative swag", which I can only assume is sweet, exclusive card backs.
       
      Blizzard will also be changing the way that qualification works for HCT Playoff events. Players will automatically qualify for the HCT Playoffs by achieving a single-season HCT Point total. The point total for season one of 2018 is 45 points, but Blizzard noted that this may change based upon the season and region of competition. As part of these changes, HCT Points will now be rewarded for the top three ladder finishes a player posts in each season instead of being handed out each month.
      Players will also be able to qualify for a season's playoffs through the brand new Hearthstone Challengers program, which appears to be a re-branding of the previous Tavern Hero system. Eight players will be able to qualify for the playoffs through the Hearthstone Challengers program each season, but the specific nature of these new qualifying tournaments has yet to be announced.
      In addition to a promising an increased number of HCT tour stops, Blizzard will be giving out additional cash rewards to the top ten Hearthstone teams each season. Each team can lock-in three players per season, and the top ten HCT-point-earning teams on the season will take home a hefty prize. With the prizes for first and second place separated by $3000 per player, this should add a fresh and exciting element of team-focused drama to Hearthstone tournaments in 2018. 

      Though the long-term effects of today's announcement remain to be seen, Blizzard's message of increased commitment to competitive Hearthstone promises to be a massive step forward for the community. A notable increase to the number of competitive events and the size of cash payouts sends a tremendous vote of confidence to members of the competitive Hearthstone scene, and sets 2018 up to be the biggest year in Hearthstone history.

      It was noticed that the Hunter Death Knight's Hero Power doesn't include any Beasts from Kobolds & Catacombs. The Hearthstone team is going to amend that in the near future.
      The Build-A-Beast Hero Power doesn't include any Beasts from the new K&C expansion and subsequently wouldn't include any new Beasts from future expansions. Mike Donais explained that this was done because of issues with translating the Custom Zombeast cards in all of the languages that Hearthstone is available. Obviously, this caused an outrage during the past weekend.
      Thankfully, Team 6 listened to the community's concerns and they agreed to expand the pool of Beasts, from which you can craft your custom Zombeast. This is going to happen for Kobolds & Catacombs at some point in the future - perhaps after the Christmas vacations. There will also be support for Beasts from future expansions, but some of them may be excluded for balance reasons (like King of Beasts).

      Greetings,

      Many players have noticed that Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power does not include any of the new Beasts that were added with the Kobolds & Catacombs expansion.

      Since then, some players have provided constructive feedback regarding the state of Deathstalker Rexxar, and we agreed that a change to the Hero Power was warranted.

      As such, we will be updating Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power to include new Beasts going forward. Please be patient, as this is a fairly complicated endeavor and we may need to start with a smaller change before a more permanent solution is implemented. We don’t have a date for this change to share with you today, but we will provide more information once we have it.

      Please also note that as new Beasts are released, we may need to mark some of them as exempt for various reasons, much like how King of Beasts is currently excluded from the pool of Beasts that Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power can pull from. 

      Thank you for providing constructive feedback. We see your love and passion for Hearthstone and believe that the best way to make Hearthstone better is to do so together.

      See you all in the Tavern! (source)
