How to play this deck against Paladins? Especially Secret and Face Rush? So far such encounters are almost always a humiliation for me.

You play your early minions (Chow, Cleric, Deathlord) which are better than their early minions and you make efficient trades, then you AoE them when necessary and survive, that's about it. It's not a particularly difficult matchup.

It just doesn't work, at all. Early minions are efficient but there are few of them and Pal can generate his minions twice faster. Priest has AOE for 5-6 mana, it's quite late and its usually not too much effective because of shields and secrets. Anyway Pal can fill board again many many times per game, and he does (

I beg to differ, there's a good chance you're just making bad decisions without knowing it, if you want to post a video of your games i'd be happy to take a look at them and let you know if you're doing anything wrong.

Best non-legendary or Naxx/FirstWingBrM replacements for Sylvanas and Justicar? Currently Im running Feugen and Stallag... Would you recommend something else?

I have this whole deck except for Justicar. I replaced her with my other legendary, 6-cost card, Thaurissan. (I spent $40 getting packs and still no luck with Justicar...sleep.png) However, I love this deck! Better than my mage mech rush deck I have. I must agree though, it's weakest against Paladins.

Sylvanna is unreplaceable. Justicar can be swapped for Thaurissan or Reno Jackson. Reno is worst, since it's only useful when you are fatigued and most of the games will be a dead card.

I would replace Sylvanna for a second affairs madness, or a second mind control, or Emperor Thaurissan. All options are worse, but have some synergy with this deck

Any LoE updates to this deck? I am sure Entomb and the Curator are very valuable to the grinding style of this deck. But I am not sure what to cut in their favour.

I really enjoyed this deck a lot before LoE and would definitely like to see it much stronger after LoE updates.

 

This is what I think,

-1xSWD  -1xMindControl , +2xEntomb

-1xChow, -1xShadow Madness , +2 Curator

-1xThoughtsteal, +1 Vol'jin

The newly posted Midrange Priest deck actually looks rather similar to this list plus natural LoE updates. 

 

Should the two maybe be merged? Or am I missing some key differences?

I would like to say that this deck isn't very good. The northshire clerics aren't really drawing into anything important in rounds 2-4, and the deathlords often times put me into fatal situations at early turns. The zombie chows are only good if you draw them on your first turn, finding them in turn 15 - 20 is usually fatal. For example, if a warrior were to simply whirlwind (or any low cost clear) into an execute on a deathlord, chances are he's ending up with a high cost (especially since control is popular) minion for FREE allowing him to do massive early damage he wouldn't be able to do otherwise. The clears Holy Nova and Light Bomb are just way to expensive to be used on something he shouldn't have at turn 4-7

That is why you don't play a Deathlord against Control Warrior on turn 3 unless you are already holding Shadow Word: Death. There is no need to do so, either, as Control Warrior can not produce the quick starts against which Deathlord is included in the deck.

      Blood-Queen Lanathel is a new legendary Warlock card that was just revealed via PCGamesN.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out here.
      Warlock's Blood-Queen Lana'thel
      The new Legendary Warlock card synergizes with Cruel Dinomancer and cards like Doomguard, Soulfire up to Malchezaar's Imp & Silverware Golem. It doesn't even have Charge and due to ist high mana cost it cannot be deployed early.

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.
