Hello, thanks for wonderful dekc, i was searching for something bore Budgety since the full deck costs so much but i got 2 questions. Iam missing few, i believe, core parts that cant be replaced but hope someone here could help me.

 

First of all, i had such bad luck on legendaries (cho, millhouse, gazlowe, bolvar hype), so the only ones i got are Boom, Jones and Naxx/BRM. Also iam missing few of the epics (mainly sslams, brawls and the gorehowl) but thats all.

 

So the 1st question is, in what order do you think is best to craft missing pieces? I was thinking about getting atleast one Brawl since its crucial board clear for Warr but iam not sure what should i craft next.

 

Replaced legendaries with Boom and Nefarian (tfw you steal from rogue shadowstep and burgle), SSlams with "soft" removals like second BGH and Owl to silence some stuff (thinking about Stampending Kodo but the silence is pretty useful) and brawls with Whirlwinds (i know, not the best, but what can i do). The weapon was thouger one, since i was thinking about Arcanite Reaper but then North Sea Kraken come into mi mind and it is doing really well (and well, its another big dude).

 

And here comes the 2nd question. Do you think these are "good" replacement till i can afford the real cards or should i try to get in some other cards? Tbh iam doing pretty good against aggro (not so much against flood), althought sometimes its surviving with 2 hp against hunter.

 

Thanks for your time and keep up the great work!

1) One Brawl is definitely priority. The second place would be the legendaries (or at least one of them as you already have Dr. Boom). Next should be the cards that suit the meta, such as Brawl in aggro environment or a Gorehowl in a control one.

 

2) Spellbreaker is better than Owl in Control Warrior, use him instead. 

Bouncing Blade is probably better than whirlwind in a control meta, but worse in an aggro meta. I don't think the deck will be that good without Brawls and I probably wouldn't even play it.

Kraken blocks you from using your Hero Power and can be easily destroyed by Dr. Boom, Ragnaros, Fireball+Ping, etc. Arcanite Reaper is probably a better card

Nefarian is a really bad card and is way too slow. Getting 2 random spells is often bad and unreliable. I like KelThuzad, so I will recommend using him instead. Even if he revives only one minion, the value is good enough.

Yeah, sometimes i feel that the brawl would help me so much, but my ladder is filled with nothing but aggro maniacs that got 1-2 hp minions so the whirlwinds arent that bad. But i imagine when i start fighting some midrange decks, i would be screwed. I think Brawl will be no.1 priority card to make. I was also thinking about using Explosive sheep together with 1 whirlwind effect to make nice 3dmg aoe, or found somewhere that Abdomination could be cheap "replacement" to geddon (i would kill for this card, so damn good).

I must say, i switched to Spellbreaker after few games. Must admit he's got pretty big body and wont die just to ping, so he can actually help with clearing/doing face dmg.

You got nice point on the Kraken, never thought it that way. I was mostly using him as bigger Blackwing Corruptor to clearn some mess. And I have to disagree with Nefarian being bad card. Yeah, its not Ysera and if I had her, she would definitely take his spot. Nefarian has pretty big body that is threatening (no idea how it writes) on its own + you got 2 spells. Yes, the spells are sometimes pretty meh, but I won even when it made Moonfire (was 1 dmg off killing his big dude and fire helped).

With the KelThuzad, I gave him a shot, and even tho I was worried how could he generate any value with so many big minions in deck, i was suprised it actually worked. Most of the times, he revives Sludge (which is awesome) or BoomBots (people are always scared about Boom, never about his bots) and thats value my opponent can never recover.

 

To finish it, i kicked Owl and Kraken (as you suggestet) and put in SpellBreaker with KT. Hopefully in 2 days i will have enough for Brawl so i could kick out both WWs and put in brawl + Cruel Taskmaster (great to ping/make favorable trade battlecry).

 

Still thinking what to kick out for ArcaniteReaper

 

Thanks for suggestions

Why it this in the Budget section? It's not budget at all.

Shouldn't the 960 Dust aggro one be in the budget section instead?

This deck: 6720 dust. Full deck: 10-14k dust. This deck is definitely a budget deck. 

The aggro deck is a full deck. Budget doesn't mean cheap, it means that a deck is not full and is cheaper than the full version of it.

i have wanted to try out control warrior for a while.

 

unfortunately, i am lacking 1 brawl, 1 shield slam, 1 gorehowl as well as alexstrasza and grom. I have replaced the last two with dr balanced and sylvanas, but any tips on the last 3? I know this is old, just asking.

      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?
