How about replacing Arcane Golem with Leeroy Jenkins. I just want to make use of that dude.

 

2 mana for 2 attack, not really worth it. It is also and anti-aggro deck and if you can't finish your opponent with Leeroy, he either sits dead in your hand or he helps your opponent with 2 damage on the board which can sometimes be deadly. I think it is an OK swap, but if you really want to find a use for him, Aggro Pally runs one and so does the outdated BrM Hunter. You can also swap him for a different card, for example a Lance Carrier that felt like the weakest card in the deck (but of course, I probably was playing that card suboptimally).

If i wanted to replace a card for a misdirection to counter secret paladin, what card would that be, if any card at all?

Oh. I don't recommend playing Flare, I think it's just awful against every other matchup, and you should already be favoured against Paladin with this deck without it.

Would swapping in a Timber Wolf for the hounds combo be reasonable?

Not really. It takes up a space, it requires your UtH to be good and can be used only with UtH.

How far can you go with this build? I'm a fairly new player and just got the cards for this deck and trying it out. Anyone with experience from it?

okay i been playing this deck as my main rank deck. currently im in rank 5 and still feels i can go up the ladder. like every deck this one has a weakness. priest and warrior deck has an upper hand to beat this deck still skills plays a major role to turn around the situation. every time i played both of those deck i keep in my that i need to be more aggressive,you have to be more calculate on your damage get rid of those minions that will keep up the health of the hero and maybe win some games that you shouldn't suppose to win like what I did. about the LEEROY JENKINS actually it saves me a lot in crucial situation where mostly you will find out that 2 damage makes a difference so its okay to include it minus 1 arcane golem. besides if you are good enough you will have the instinct to eliminate its downside of giving away 2 1/1 minion to your opponent by setting him up with explosive traps. against other aggro decks this deck is on top of the food chain, you are beatable but with enough experience playing with it you will have the instinct to anticipate 3 to 4 turns to win the game. So for me this is highly recommended for those who are in tight of budget and wants to be competitive in rank.

Can somebody please explain the strategy of this deck vs secret paladins?

 

I don't understand how this deck is supposed to have the advantage over them. As soon as they get out their secret minion they can just wipe you off the board completely with no possible way to recover.

Don't let them have over 10 hp by the time they can play it. You are playing the most aggressive deck in the game, and you have cards like explosive trap and unleash the hounds, so allowing them to develop a board for the sake of putting out more face damage in the earlier turns is usually a fair trade. Anyway, I suggest playing the other version of the deck present on the website, because this one is a bit outdated.

 

BTW face hunter crushes secret paladin any day of the week if you play the deck right.

Hi just a heads up, but this and the other face decks still include Arcana Golem o.O

Thanks, will fix that ASAP!

There are more decks that still contain Arcane Golem (the list is on the bottom of the page). Sorry if the changes are already on the way.

Great deck. Took me all the way  from 13 to 16.

C'mon. Play the deck before you make outlandish claims.

Please provide us with replays. Saying that the deck took you from 13 to 16, a claim that you haven't provided proof for by the way, does not help anyone here, especially not you.

Played the deck, got to 10, got bored of those easy wins.

Well, had about 45 minutes to spare, why not smorc a bit ;)

Guess the results make it still viable don't they? Around the same ranks as @positiv2

Edit : We have to note that face hunter is still only viable is the wild format. In standard face hunters lost valuable tools that make your early game explosive and not easy to answer.

Agreed. If you want to play face/aggro decks, there are much better alternatives for standard.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
