I think the unstable portal 'card' is bugged in the decklist, incorrectly showing it as a hero power costing 0 mana.

I've started practicing this deck recently, I really like it. Random stuff given by portals and spellslingers is gamebreaking sometimes biggrin.png

 

In my experience, it does very badly against control Warrior - is this correct, or am I doing something wrong? 

 

Also, do you think any of the cards from new adventure will be worthwhile additions or must-haves in this deck?

Although the deck is unfavoured against Control Warrior, I feel like "very badly" is too much. Usually players overextend into Brawl and trade too much.

The torch seems ok, but not sure what to swap it for. For now I play it without any LoE cards.

I experience a shortcoming of card draw with this deck

 

Yes, that is a bit of a problem. You will need to know when to use your resources so you don't run out of them. If you tempo too hard, you will quickly run out of cards.

I swapped the Crusader for the Ethereal Conjurer. The stats are worse, but I think a spell is more valuable than a random paladin card. I am not sure if the "stats for spell" trade of is worth it but I at least want to test it

I still prefer the Crusader personally, but i'm considering adding Conjurer to the standard version, i'm not all that convinced on it yet though. More testing needed.

I don't have access to BRM at the moment, so I'm missing the Flamewakers, what would you recommend as a replacement? I was thinking either Big Game Hunter or Mind Control Tech, but I'm not entirely certain. I have about 10k dust, so crafting isn't really an issue, but anything from LoE or BrM is going to have to wait for a while.

There is a Tempo Mage without BrM posted on the site already. I don't think it will be any good, though.

Been having some fun with this deck and similar ones, but no matter what I tech in I cant seem to consistently beat control decks, especially priests who get a fast start, and handlocks.  

In a deck with no silence or similar effects, how can you go about killing or playing around a cleric or deathlord that's been buffed with velens chosen on turn 3 for example?

 

Handlocks have proven pretty much unbeatable for me if they know what they're doing, the closest I can get is lowering them to 17 or so health while I have some minions on the board and both fireballs in hand, but then the inevitable reno jackson or brann healbot combo shatters that dream

In that case you could tech in a second Poly:Boar. Not really sure though, as it will lower your winrate against aggro decks.

If you have minions in play as you described, then the healing shouldn't be too big of a deal. Obviously Reno sucks, but Reno when you have a board is not the end of the world. You need to be prepared to play the long game now that there's so much more healing in the game, use your damage to take down minions, keep a board presence etc. Minions are worth infinite damage if they stay alive, Fireballs are just 6 :)

Priests can be rough, Handlock and Renolock is pretty 50/50 though.

Hi, I'm puzzled: Arcane Intellect is mentioned in your discussion, but is not on the list. Do I miss something here?

The adjustments made to the deck yesterday are pretty great for this meta. However your guide doesn't reflect these changes in all areas yet.. just a heads up.

Thank you Sottle for all these decks, tempo mage has been my favourite for quite some time and with it I had the easlest climb to rank 3 (i guess you can reach legend with all of your metadecks but after rank 5 i get lazy).

 

Anyways, i think counterspell fits better than duplicate (gives you a chance to play flamewaker on a empty board and and bait removals, sometimes you counter big spells etc), thoughts on this?

The Secret package is definitely flexible, i'm not a big fan of Counterspell since i find it more awkward when pulled from a Mad Scientist than Mirror or Dupe, but a lot of players do favour it.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:
      GM:

      Council:
