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.

      A new series of posts in the official forums will shed some light into the inner workings of the Hearthstone team. Welcome to Tavern Talk!
      In this first installment, three questions are answered. The first has to do with additional rewards for players who have earned a Golden Hero with every class. Unfortunately, no extra rewards are planned since the team wants new features or rewards to be obtainable by 10% or more of the playerbase.
      Then, we have an update on the new player experience. Team 5 wants to add additional ranks above rank 25 for new players, so they can mostly face each other in their first steps in the ranked ladder. You will be able to only progress forward in these ranks, similarly to what already happens from rank 25 to 20.
      Lastly, we have a double question about using alternate card art and reprinting cards. The team doesn't like the idea of alternate card art, since it makes sense that players associate and remember a specific card from its art. Reprinting cards is something that has been discussed already and it's something they might do in the not-so-near future after careful consideration.

      Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the tavern? Ava and the crew’s antics aside, the Hearthstone development team works hard on a myriad of tasks to bring you the game you know and love so well. More than that, we also make the time to read about the different issues and questions the community brings to light each day. Welcome to Hearthstone Tavern Talk, where we’ll share with you answers to some of the questions we see in our community!
      Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?
      Usually when we add new features or rewards we like to make something that can be obtained by 10% or more of our players. Only very few of our players have the 9 Golden Heroes, and we feel that’s already pretty awesome by itself.
      Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience?
      We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
      What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?
      Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card.
      Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
      See you at the next edition of Hearthstone Tavern Talk!
