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

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

1 justicar trueheart

1 emperor thaurissan

1 dr. boom

1 grommash hellscream

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.

 

Thanks for answering smile.png

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.

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
