I got two Mysterious Challengers from my first 35 TGT packs and was pretty underwhelmed initially. Of course I gave them at least a chance and: Boy, what a blast they are!

I love, how you include Murloc Knight even in this aggressive build. I have the feeling, that this deck needs (at least) one other win condition, if the opponent is somehow able to deal with the Challenger.

Personally I even include Quartermaster and Boom, but that would only mean, that I prefer a more Midrange build.

From my experience it actually IS possible to keep Mysterious Challenger in the opening hand: if all stars align and you have The Coin, Shielded Minibot/Knife Juggler, Muster for Battle and Piloted Shredder. It is hard to think of a deck, that can cope with these plays (maybe Dragon Priest).

 

Two minor remarks:

The last paragraph of the Strategy section says: "If you summon all 4 Secrets into play at once...", but this aggressive deck contains 5 secrets.

The first paragraph of the Mulligans section mentions Haunted Creeper, which is only run in your Midrange deck.

 

Cheerio,

Bob

Played this deck today (9/1/15) had everything set up with the secret keeper out first. The next turn I played the Mysterious Challenger and my secret keeper received zero bonuses from four secrets being pulled from my deck.

This deck, IMHO, sucks balls. It gives you very little beginning game wise but secrets. The Secret keeper is useless. Midrange is EASILY taken out because you can't get board control worth a crap in the beginning so your throwing down one minion at a time just trying to stay alive. Yea there are some lucky games where you eek through, but overall I can not see this getting you to legendary. I've gotten further with a basic deck in ranked than I can achieve with this. Some major flaws with this deck. It is EASILY handled by almost any opponent who knows what they're doing, which is the majority of players in ranked.

I went 28-12 with this deck on stream yesterday, you are likely just playing poorly.

Hello buddy, I saw that the deck you were playing on stream was slighty different from the one in the guide. The one in the stream had more 1 mana minions, and there was no murlock knight. Considering the current meta, which would you recommend for ladder climbing? I'm rank 14 at the moment.

Hello. Which agro variation do you recommend, the one in the guide or the one you used on stream?

That's true, the exact list I played on stream was slightly more aggressive than this one, but having tested both, I favour this list I have posted.

Avenge is key to the Mysterious Challenger chain since the Noble Sac + Avenge combination is key to set the whole thing off. I'd say Avenge is pretty essential to playing this deck effectively.

Very fun deck Sottle, thanks for it! I was thinking of weaving 1 Warhorse Trainer in for extra push with Muster for Battle, in place of one of the Shredders maybe?

Love this deck so much. Had to post something. I was using the more expensive midrange paladin deck, but without a Tirion because I didn't have him yet. I couldn't seem to get out of Rank 15-17, maybe I suck or something but it seemed highly dependent on RNG/luck, as well as dependent on my opponent not getting luckier than I was.

 

However, as soon as I made this deck, which costs half as much dust as the Midrange (I didn't even need to build any cards for it, I already had them all from the midrange) I've now rocketed from Rank 16 to 3 stars into Rank 11. Feels really good to advance, and feels really good to always be moving the board forward and aggressively attacking.

 

Guess Aggro is just the way to go for me. Thanks again for making this deck!

Hey Sottle, I just started hearthstone and I apparently pulled a legendary on my first deck, Ysera. I been looking through deck builds and yours is always the cheapest. Do you think I should disenchant my Ysera for this build because I can't afford it at the current moment. All I have right now is 400 dust so I probably cant finish it but I can get close. Thanks.

If you are sure you don't want to play control decks (or want to main paladin), you can definitely disenchant it.

However, if you want to play mainly control decks, I would not disenchant her as 1200 dust loss is a significant amount. Although you would be able to craft commons and rares, the control power comes from legendary cards and Ysera is one of those cards that can win you games alone.

      The final stage of the HCT 2017 Worldc Championship has kicked off with the group stage. On Thursday, we saw matches on groups A and B. Beware because spoilers are following!
      Group A
      This group consists of Frederik "Hoej" Nielsen, Julien "DocPwn" Bachand, Jon "Orange" and Chen "tom60229" Wei Lin. The first match of the day was between the Danish Hoej vs the Canadian DocPwn (2-3). This was one of the longest matches, with both players displaying exceptional skill. It all culminated into the 5th game, where DocPwn managed to get his Keleseth Rogue early game going and beat Hoej's Priest. In the other game, tom60229 from Taiwan easily beat Orange from Sweden with a score of 3-1.
      The two defeated players, Hoej and Orange, proceeded to play against each other. Hoej's Murloc Paladin, the deck that made him stand out compared to other contestants, betrayed him as he lost 3 times in a row with it! Thus, one of the favourites for the World Championship was eliminated. DocPwn also sweeped his opponent tom, but he had a much harder time. Their last game, with Keleseth Rogue for DocPwn and Jade Druid for tom, had quite a few upsets and you should definitely watch it.
      The decider match between Orange and tom60229 will take place on Saturday.
      Group A Match W-L Total W-L DocPwn 2-0 6-2 Orange 1-1 4-3 tom60229 1-1 3-4 Hoej 0-2 2-6 Group B
      Muzahidul "Muzzy" Islam, Jason "JasonZhou" Zhou, Aleksandr "Kolento" Malsh and Samuel "SamuelTsao" Tsao play in this group. Muzzy, who represents America and is one of the favourite's to win the World Championship, beat the Chinese JasonZhou with a score of 3-1. In the next match, even though SamuelTsao made some mistakes, he managed to even the score with the Ukranian legend. In their final game, the young Taiwanese's Priest beat Kolento's Druid with an impressive 46-damage OTK (3-2).
      The elimination series between Kolento and JasonZhou is totally nail-biting! The two experienced players evened out each other and it all came down to the final game with a Keleseth Rogue mirror match. Jason drew better and he managed to eliminate crowd favourite Kolento (along with everyone who voted for him) with a score of 3-2. SamuelTsao managed to beat Muzzy with the same score in another intense series. Their last match (Warlock vs Priest) had a lot of upsides, but in the end luck smiled to SamuelTsao.
      The decider match between Muzzy and JasonZhou will take place on Saturday.
      Group B Match W-L Total W-L SamuelTsao 2-0 6-4 Muzzy 1-1 5-4 JasonZhou 1-1 4-5 Kolento 0-2 4-6 Final Remarks
      Thursday was a day of surprises, particularly unpleasant ones for Europe. Favourites Kolento (RIP packs) and Hoej were eliminated; I am mostly suprised about Hoej, since he had one of the strongest deck line-ups of this Championship. Statistically speaking, I don't think we'll have a European World Champion this time.
      On the other hand, outsiders DocPwn and SamuelTsao managed to come out on the top of their groups. DocPwn's effort is certainly admirable, since he's not exactly a full-time professional Hearthstone player: he was calm, level-headed and showed some exceptional critical decision making. In contrast, Samuel's youth and inexperience were quite evident, but his opponents also underestimated him. I think he has a lot to show for in the future.
      The not-so-surprising highlight of the day was Warlock being banned in almost all matches. Among the decks that stood out were Orange's Hunter (he's the only one that brought one and he won 2/2 of his games with it) and JasonZhou's interestingly teched Aggro Druid.
      Day 2 of the Group Stage is currently underway, so make sure to watch it!

      The two Hearthstone developers talked to IGN about the design process behind some of the most impactful cards from Kobolds & Catacombs.
      First of all, Peter Whalen and Mike Donais confirmed that there will be an update on February, a month after the World Championship. This patch will contain new events and possibly balance changes. They will take a look at the meta as it's been and as it is in the World Championship and they will decide accordingly.
      Moving on, they talked about some of the classes and how K&C cards have affected them. Starting with Warlock, Cubelock was a deck that was tested internally and it was an archetype the team was "certainly concerned about and [they] played a bunch of games with it". Carnivorous Cube was also tested internally in Recruit Hunter and in Quest Druid. As far as Possessed Lackey is concerned, there was a second version of it that read "Battlecry: If you control a Demon, Recruit a Demon", while Dark Pact was 0 mana at some point. Lastly, Rin, the First Disciple's seals used to have different effects and Azari, the Devourer was a 15/15 untargetable minion.
      The two devs talked next about the other dominating class of the current meta: Priest. Mike Donais pointed out that Highlander Priest was already doing well, so it was only given one new card: Psychic Scream. On the other hand. Big Priest has a pretty medium win rate, even though it can feel frustrating to play against. It's also a deck that will lose several cards in the upcoming rotation. At this point, the devs repeated that they are looking forward to develop and see in action new playstyles in the post-Barnes era. Finally, during the design process Twilight's Call could summon any minion, not just Deathrattles, but this was deemed too powerful.
      The next class to be discussed was Rogue. The team is happy with how balanced the Kingsbane Rogue deck turned out to be. Some internal iterations of the Rogue legendary weapon were dual-wielded daggers or a weapon that had the Battlecry: Discover a card, everything you draw is a copy of that. Mike also talked about Valeera the Hollow: he expected her to be more powerful than she already is, but maybe players will find a way to use her more in the future.
      There were a few words about Hearthstone's currently weakest class: Shaman. The devs think that the Shaman Spellstone is a powerful "sleeper" card, although maybe there's presently not a proper deck for it. They were also slightly worried about Unstable Evolution. Another "sleeper" card for them is Warrior's Drywhisker Armorer.
      An important point is that when asked about Corridor Creeper, Peter said that it's "one of the cards that raised a red flag". Lastly, they talked about King Togwaggle and the numerous iterations he had - all around swapping decks with your opponent. The penalty on the spell card isn't high enough on purpose, because they didn't want Togwaggle to be a super competitive card.
      I've tried to summarise the most important points, but you should definitely check out the entire interview on IGN. There's much more detail behind the design process of Kobolds & Catacombs, while there is also temp artwortk of cards as well as two cards that never made it into the game!

      Along with this week's awesome Tavern Brawl featuring World Championship winning decks, this marks the first time that Blizzard has brought Hearthstone eSports all the way to the Hearthstone client. Given the recent start of the Overwatch League and the choose your champion feature for the World Championships, it seems that Blizzard is supporting competitive gaming now more than ever.

      This week's Brawl honours the 3 previous Hearthstone World Champions!
      The 2018 World Championship is about to begin and Team 5 is celebrating by giving us a very special Tavern Brawl. In this Brawl, you get to play with decks that the previous world champions from 2014, 2015 and 2016 used on their way to the top. Your player name will even change to the respective Champion: Firebat, Ostkaka or Pavel!
      Here are the deck archetypes you can get:
      Firebat's Undertaker Hunter Firebat's Ramp Druid Firebat's Miracle Rogue Firebat's Zoolock Ostkaka's Patron Warrior Ostkaka's Oil Rogue Ostkaka's Freeze Mage Pavel's Tempo Mage Pavel's Malygos Miracle Rogue Pavel's Midrange Shaman Pavel's C'Thun Warrior Pavel's Malygos OTK Druid You might think: "why would I want to play a deck from 2014 with cards that have been nerfed"? Well, all cards are on their pre-nerfed versions, therefore they are basically in the same state as when originally used by each World Champion. So, say hello to pre-nerf Undertaker, Leper Gnome, Hex and many others.
      Amnesiac can never catch a break.
      A slight inconsistency is that cards that generate other cards or tokens, like Piloted Shredder or Babbling Book, can generate cards/tokens from later expansions. For example, my opponent's dead Shredder created Friendly Bartender, a card that neither Champion had encountered at their time.
      Enjoy the Brawl and tune in to the World Championship this weekend!
