Does Sottle even play with these decks before posting them? This is yet another aggro deck that is completely dependent on getting lucky with your draws. And there's no draw power AT ALL so if you don't get a lucky break at the very beginning you're screwed.

Fel Reaver is not "misunderstood," it's trash. Guaranteed burn of at least 9 cards if its played without Innervate. About a third of your deck is just gone. In my case it seems to be a guaranteed way to lose both Force of Natures.

Do you post these crappy decks just to make it easier for you to win when you play against them?

Look at the opening paragraph, it says that sottie didn't make this deck himself.

Now a few paragraphs down, Sottie explains the strengths of Fel Reaver in this deck. And his points are valid. I think this may be a point of you just misplaying this deck a bit.​

I'm not sure how much did Sottle play with it, you should check him on Twitch if that bothers you. One thing i can tell you for sure, i reached legend with this deck quite easily. Do not expect for a deck to play by itself, you need to learn how to do it properly and yea, play alot smile.png

Yes, he does play with them. This deck was used by many people to reach legend with and has been marked by Tempo Storm as tier 1 deck.

 

You don't care about burning your cards because you will usually burn useless cards such as shredder, raptor or even your mum (yes, absolutely useless). You just go face, it deals 8 damage multiple times and can easily win you the game. Just go face.

 

Do you play the game just to make it easier for us to win?

It depends on your specific matchup. Generally, if you want to kill a minion and it is doable by using hore power, it is better to use it instead of using Keeper.

This deck is top notch on ladder right now, but the shade/arcane golem kindy off the plase.
 May an argent horserider b better replasement 4 the shade than arcane golem? This one is really hard 2 deal with, and it removes annoying 3/2 minions and stays alive. huh.png

Well i just hit legendary rank with this dek. My win rate with this one was jst spectacular-whole legend run took only about 100 games biggrin.png(from 5 2 legend) . I favor this one against midrange secret paly (not anty agro+LOE version), entomb priest, tempo mage(jst a bit), and reno/lock/din etc, and even control warrior!! And those decks are actualy is the whole ladder right now. 

This deck considered as a tier 2 deck by manakost, but  addition of  Mounted Raptor and argent horse riders instead off shades really pushes its win rate far forward.

I'm actualy thinking about swaping leper gnome 4 worgen, becase this one can stay stealthed 4 a long time until it will find 3/2 creature 2 kill-it ph34r.png cant b pinged down, cant b killed with haunted creeper, paladin recruter etc. as  Druid of the Saber doesph34r.png  and this stealth mechanik can really catch by surprise our opponent and allow us 2 trade as wee want. This ninja team works soo well.

I'm using this deck as well and am stuck around tier 4-5. May I ask how many argents are you using? Also do you have any other tips not mentioned in the article? Thanks!

I'm using only 1 argent instead of a shade (and worgens instead leper gnomes). 

But playing this deck is actually preatty deamn tough. Against agro decks i like 2 build a board, trade alot and i'm basikly playing this as midrange deck: removing oponents threat, plaing around board clears. This deck thou can also smork ur opponent preatty damn fast, so u should sometimes take a risc and push extra face damage if u ahead on tempo(trading tempo 4 face damage). This deck should carry you 2 the legend if ladder isn't infested with d*mn zoo, dragon priest and new miracle rogues.

  U should probably check some vods with this deck really 2 emprove ur performance.

Take a look at this one: 

 

Kolento really pushes this deck 2 the limit, and he explains alot of his plays.

I've been playing for a couple of years, honestly.  I don't understand this deck. I've watched videos, talked to people, etc...and I just hover around 15 - 12 with this thing.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong at this point.  It -seems- good, but I don't know, it just gets shut down a lot by other aggro decks.

Aggro is just hard to play well. You will need to practice a lot with it. Could be also unfavourable matchups (although the meta is favourable to some extent). You could also try watching streams, but not really sure when the videos didn't help you much.

Ok so i have to say this deck type is dead...just plain dead! Fel reaver is about useless for starters. I get about 1 shot with him per game maybe but i always lose at least 6 to 9 cards in the process of him dying the turn after i summoned him so i dont even get to use him. Also the rush thing is great if the person you are playing either doesnt have spells or does not have any taunts so yeah every other deck kills this. Now i admit i thought this deck was great last season i mean i got to rank 9 last season so yknow it did work. But this season i have lost 25 games in a row and gone down to freakin rank 20 i mean that is just a terrible deck. No drawability, No healing, No winning its as simple as that.  And honestly the deck was supposed to get me to legendary last season and i didnt even get close. Now im sorry but i consider that the site lying to my face. Here are the classes i never beat: Priest, Warlock, Paladin, and Druid...guess what... THATS ALL THE CLASSES EVERYONE ELSE IS IN RANKED!!! Most useless thing ever. I mean every time EVERY TIME i summon Fel reaver turn 1 agains warlock they use the spell where at the start of their next turn he dies so i get one hit ONE FREAKIN HIT! Unless they send in the freakin 1/3 taunt for 1 mana cost then i get nothing and lose 6 cards!

So i have tried and tried and tried and watched the video you gave me over and over again and i still cant get past rank 19 its just no matter how good a hand i get EVERYONE instakills everything I don't know what to do I am in such a rage cause this is pure stupidity I SHOULD NOT be having these problems. The biggest problem is no matter how fast i get someone down to 14 or less health they always have like 25 in healing in there hand or like 8 in healing and 13 in damage spells or something stupid like that. I just had a mage use 6 spells at 8 mana while i had just thrown out Fel reaver and then the final spell was entomb. I mean really stupid crap that like i mean what are you even supposed to do against decks like that. They are invicible at rank 19 RANK 19 that doesn't make any sense everyone at my rank should suck up till i get to like rank 10 then they should be equal with me not gods compared to me at rank 19. Please someone tell me what i'm doing wrong!

A MAGE at 8 Mana uses 6 spells, and one of them is ENTOMB? This means he had to get this via Spellslinger. Plus, there need to be several 1 Mana spells included (and even that requires that he had a sorcerer's apprentice out), probably, in this case some spare parts he generated earlier (so you should know he had those cheap spells). I would say that this is a) a very rare scenario and b ) the Fel Reaver was probably a misplay in that situation.

Do people still can't get around the fell reaver thing? Jesus.

 

It is 100% irrelevant that they burned you any number of cards from your deck if they don't fatigue you, other than the fact that they know you don't have them in hand(which admittedly can be awkward at times, but never so much so that you regret playing an 8/8 for 5 mana).

True it was rare I have not seen that happen often usually it is 2-4 spells but the point is for some reason I always get that kind of unlucky. I suppose i should wait till they have less cards in their hand than me before i play fel reaver but I never get that because they always have at least 4-6 more cards in their hand than me even though they have used cards every turn to counter everything I do. I loved this deck last season even though I only got to rank 9 and I was supposed to get to legendary with it. I will say I don't have all the legendaries that are part of this deck because I don't have much money and have had to get all my adventures via gold. I have half of naxxramas and all of the newest adventure but i havent even started on the dragon one. The sad thing is if that is the main problem and the only reason i don't win then this game is really really pay to win dependent and that is just depressing. Now don't get me wrong if i had money I would instantly get all the adventures like they were going out of style! At any rate can anyone suggest something I can do to improve what I have going. Cause I need to stop losing cause of lucky draws on the other side. Luck cannot be allowed to dictate over skill and a well made deck.

rd or something like that c) because you could have happen to you what happened to me. I threw out fel reaver turn 3 against a paladin and he threw out a card that made fel reaver an 1/8 creatures instead of an 8/8 creature. Fel Reaver was made the death of my deck in an instant!

what it said was the fact that fel reaver burns cards is incredibly relevant! because a) you could burn all the good cards needed to keep him alive or maybe clear taunt cards or things like that! b) Fel reaver can never ever beat a deck by himself no creature can there are too many ways to stop him or freeze him or deal damage to him equal to his atk and or something like that

      Dean "Iksar" Ayala was active on Reddit yesterday commenting on the purpose and the design philosophy behind the Basic and Classic sets as well as the reasoning behind nerfs on cards from these sets.
      The Lead Balance Designer explained that the Basic and Classic sets' purpose is to introduce players to the game's mechanics and the fantasies behind each class. Since these sets are always around, powerful cards in them can be frustrating and cause negativity. For example, Wild Growth and Nourish were under the scope for a nerf for a long time. That doesn't mean all Basic and Classic cards have to be weak; some of them, like Fireball, Al'Akir the Windlord, Frothing Berserker and Tirion Fordring, are powerful, they show off class fantasy well enough and are safe from any changes (for now!).
      Card nerfs aren't meant to just solve short-term problems. For example, the Fiery War Axe nerf made it possible for other Warrior weapons to see play. It's true that nerfing cards from the Classic and Basic cards makes players feel obligated to invest their gold or real money on newly released sets. The team has tried to offset this with more seasonal events, as well as the reworked new player experience, which all give packs to players.
      IksarHS
      Ideally the basic and classic set show off the kinds of mechanics each class is about without having too many cards that show up in all possible class archetypes. Basic is important to us because it serves as a set of cards players can use to learn about the game before they choose whether or not to make an investment of their time or money. Classic is important to us because it serves as the secondary jump-off point where you learn the baseline for what each of the individual classes is about along with some of our core mechanics like Battlecry or Deathrattle. From a gameplay perspective, having these sets around forever usually only leads to negativity when the cards are so powerful they show up in every deck in every expansion, making the strategies players use feel more stale than they would otherwise. We've been trying to change some of these power outliers over time, but only when making that change might also be positive for the live game environment. Wild Growth and Nourish were good examples of cards we had thought about changing for some time, so when we arrived in a meta where Druid had been very powerful and popular for a long time, it felt like a good time for those changes. We'd like to continue making these types of changes, as we believe the game will be in a better position to meet the player expectation that the game is new and fresh from expansion to expansion.
      We nerf basic/classic cards that are too powerful instead of rotating them when they hit on class fantasy but at too high of a power level. Ramping mana is a strong identifier for what Druid should be about, so it made more sense to us to have some of the simplest forms of mana ramp exist in the base set to teach players what Druids can be about. It also makes more sense to have those cards be medium power level because if we identify mana ramp as an identity for Druids, it would be nice to be able to make some mana ramp cards from time to time without having to create cards even more powerful than two of the (arguably) most powerful cards in the game. Of course, this doesn't mean all basic and classic cards have to be weak. Generally the cards we target for change are ones that exist in every archetype. Cards like Al'Akir, Frothing, Fireball, or Tirion are probably safe. They are powerful and do an awesome job at selling the class fantasy for the class they represent. They also have some weaknesses and you can imagine an archetype within their class that might not play them. This is a pretty good place to be in. (source)

      I probably should have included this in the first post. It's true that reducing the amount of auto-include cards in the base set makes cards from expansions more important if the goal is to be able to create every powerful deck. This is something that's more healthy to solve with things like gold injection events like fire festival, increasing the gold on the average quest, or having a new player experience that awards 20+ packs. We keep a close eye on the the kind of investment it takes (time or currency) to obtain a deck archetype that is fun and powerful. The end goal is to make that a painless experience and there is more than one way to go about that. Having a wide variety of forever cards that are so high power level they are included in most decks is one way to go about it, I just don't think it's the right one.  (source)

      The main point I think is important to get across here is that we don't ever change basic and classic cards just to solve short-term problems. Warrior was fairly powerful at the time we changed FWA which I think makes the change more palatable. If we truly thought that Warrior was better served in the long-term by have FWA as a (2) mana card, then we certainly would have tried to change expansion level cards rather than something in the classic set. Cards like Sul'thraze, Supercollider, Woodcutter's Axe, and Bloodrazer have all had a little more room to breathe and make Warrior feel different expansion to expansion as a result of the FWA change, which was part of the goal.

      Many players - initially from Korea, but then from all regions - have received a survey about Hearthstone and the latest expansions. One of the questions of the survey asks players how likely they would be to to play the card game within the next 30 days, if there were no Blizzard sponsored tournaments.
      The question has made a lot of people nervous, given that Heroes of the Storm esports were recently axed and the game will go in maintenance mode in the near future. The climate is already heavy with the latest WoW expansion not being received that greatly and all the rumours about Activision meddling into Blizzard. The recent news about two Activision Blizzards CFOs leaving the company and Bungie (the developer of Destiny 2) jumping ship from Activision only managed to spark the rumours that things aren't going that well for Blizzard. Hearthstone also saw its game director and public face, Ben Brode, leave this year - along with other notable Hearthstone devs.
      Significant changed to the structure of the Hearthstone Championship Tour were announced less than two months ago, so Hearthstone esports have a future for 2019 at least. Of course, the conspiracy lovers immediately pointed out that HotS devs promised that HGC would continue in 2019, only to announce its cancellation less than a month afterwards.

      The full survey was shared on Reddit by u/HelixFossil89.
      It is important to put this matter into perspective without panicking. First of all, this was a single question in a 35-question survey about the game in general and Rastakhan's Rumble in particular. The conductors of the survey obviously want to get the general opinion of their playerbase on major issues. Just because they asked this particular question, it doesn't necessarily mean they are considering axing Hearthstone esports.
      Second, there is no indication that Hearthstone isn't doing well. Sure, it may have lost some players but it probably still is Blizzard's second best earner. Its competition has definitely not managed to thwart it and the latest balance changes - while they weren't exactly successful in creating a healthy meta - were received with excitement and positivity by most of the community.
      On the other hand, Blizzard has spent quite a lot of money on the Hearthstone professional scene and perhaps there is a limit of how much they can keep throwing at it. There is also the matter that even though Hearthstone has been successful as an esport, it has managed that without being taken totally seriously - even by its own players. The 2019 plans also seem a bit vague-ish, although it should be noted that the January qualifiers are well underway.

      This brand new Tavern Brawl challenges you to build a deck with cards from 2 Wild expansions and 2 Standard ones.
      Specifically, you will need to construct a deck using only cards from Goblins vs Gnomes, The Grand Tournament, The Witchwood and The Boomsday Project. We remind you that this month is dedicated to Wild mode with a new Wild Bundle and thematic Tavern Brawls being available.
      Newer players or players that don't have a lot of Wild cards in their collection can pick a Class and a single card and the game will autofill a deck for them with cards they don't have!
      If you don't have cards from GvG and TGT, but still want to make your own deck, Baku the Mooneater and/or Genn Greymane are your best bets. Odd Rogue and Odd Paladin are performing well and Even Shaman is also a decent choice.
      If you have all the cards needed, then it's a great opportunity to show off your Mech power. Mech Hunter and Mech Paladin are absolute beasts, with the Mechs from GvG and The Boomsday Project synergising perfectly.
      This is a very interesting Tavern Brawl, since it creates a whole new meta on its own and it satisfies the players who are asking for yearly/monthly rotations with a specific amount of random sets from all of Hearthstone's history. Sometimes, Tavern Brawls foreshadow future games modes so perhaps this is a small hint on something different being worked on!

      Here comes another update, once again focusing on Arena balance as classes get the appearance rates of cards tweaked so everyone has a comparable win rate. We're seeing Hunters, Rogues and Warriors getting their rates nerfed, while Druids, Mages, Paladins, Shamans and Warlocks get theirs buffed. This is coming after the more comprehensive update last month that saw some bigger Arena changes, including the removal of Mind Control Tech.

      We're also getting changes to Rumble Run in this update, featuring better synergy for your shrine with new cards picked, boss deck adjustments and the ability to re-pick the shrine you lost with. Check out the full details below:
      January 10 (source)
      This Hearthstone update mixes Rumble Run up for a refreshing new change, while also bringing in some updates to Arena buckets together with the cessation of December 2018’s dust refund. Read on for details!
      Arena Updates
      Following our Arena update last December, we have adjusted the appearance rate of each individual card available in Arena to ensure the overall win-rate of each class remains as close as possible to our ideal of 50%.
      Hunter, Rogue, and Warrior have had the average quality of their Arena picks lowered. Druid, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Shaman, and Warlock have had the average quality of their Arena picks raised. December Update
      The dust refunds that were available following our last update in December 2018 are no longer available as of this post.
      Rumble Run Changes
      Champions, rumblers, and trolls of all sizes! We’ve watched you spend a month punching faces in the Rumble Run, and we think there’s room for some changes based on how things have gone. Here’s what’s new with the Rumble Run.
      Weighted Card Rewards We’ve increased the possibility of synergistic cards for your shrine appearing more often. One of our primary goals with this mode was to showcase the nine troll champions and have you really get to know them. We wanted you to “live the dream” of fighting in the Gurubashi Arena, and to do so, we had to make sure that each Run had its own strong theme. Adjusting the card bucket offerings for decks and re-adding bonus buckets will help strengthen that experience.
      Boss Deck Adjustments One of our design goals with the Rumble Run was to provide huge, overpowered combat. Balancing at such a high power level is a challenge. When it works, it works great. You get epic, monumental combat against overwhelming odds. But when it doesn’t work, it feels random and swingy – like when the AI pulls an overwhelming combo. And since no one likes being repeatedly hit in the face with a club, we’ve pruned some of the power from the boss decks so that your Runs will play out more moderately. We have a lot of data about which bosses have the biggest body counts, and we’ve used that to target the worst offenders. Rumble Runs are now a little easier, but more importantly, they’ll feel a little more fair.
      Shrine Selection Changes In early builds of the Rumble Run, we allowed players to pick a class and shrine before playing. What we found was that playtesters immediately picked their favorite class, gravitated to a certain shrine, and played that shrine repeatedly.
      We had wanted to encourage players to try different shrines, especially to experiment with stuff they normally wouldn’t, so we put the current random shrine drafting in place. While that helped achieve our initial goal, it removed that feeling of mastery – the ability to choose a shrine and play with it until you feel you’ve mastered it or exhausted its possibilities.
      So we want to bring that back. With this update, whenever you lose, you can expect to always be offered the shrine you just lost with. The shrine that the boss used to beat you in your last run will also be offered, per the status quo.
      Some Final Rumble Ruminations
      We always prefer to experiment, try extreme ideas, and get feedback rather than play it safe. In true troll fashion, we went big with the Rumble Run and tried some different ideas to give this expansion a unique feel and to capture the thrill of stepping into an arena against known opponents for some superpowered brutality. It’s wallop or be walloped in there, for better or for worse.
      One of the things we experimented with—and heard great feedback on—was about the earlier pack rewards for the Rumble Run. Previous Hearthstone missions awarded packs via quests for completing content. For The Boomsday Project, we gave packs out without a quest to celebrate the launch of the expansion’s missions. This time around, we front-loaded the rewards and gave players three extra packs on launch day instead of during the Rumble Run. We felt that packs might be more interesting to people during the initial weeks of the expansion.
      As many of you have pointed out, this decision just made the missions feel especially un-rewarding. It’s always more gratifying to earn packs by competing a quest, rather than just being given them. To this end, we’re adding the new quest described above, and going forward, we’ll keep this feedback in mind for the launch of new single-player content.
      We had a ton of fun making mode and really appreciate the time that many of you took to write out thoughtful feedback. Everything we learn helps make future content better.
      And now, it’s back to the Rumble Run!
