      Well, it's sounds crazy, but i like murlock knight+hero power on turn 6 more than sylvanas lately. I finding myself with both this cards in my hand and murlock knight  is most of the time jst better 4 the board state. Paladin kinda lucks small target removals, so sating up good mind control turn is imposible alot of times.

      Actualy murlock knight won 4 me much more games than sylvanas did wink.png,   (sry 4 my Engl). Mb this card worth fiting it back in this deck?

I put a Murloc knight in place of Justicar Truehart, and this deck is working like a miracle! :)

Thanks for it!

So I don't really understand the latest changes, dropping big game hunter and iron beak owl seems like losing way too much tech for the benefit of 2 sludge belchers. The uldaman for the murloc knights makes perfect sense but the coghammer instead of the second truesilver champion seems bad and the antique healbot for the tuskaar seems like a step down as well. Especially with losing a defender of argus for the second zombie chow. I understand all this is to better face off against aggro decks that are so popular at the moment, but it seems like you are guaranteed to lose a control match up now with no tech and too much taunt.

I was just wandering why there was an explenation for Big game hunter. But i see as Guest_Guest_* described that its a recent update to the deck. Will this actually work better?

I have only one Quartermaster. Can i replace that card with something else?

Loatheb could be OK. It doesn't change your curve and protects your board for one turn (usually the turn before lethal).

The recent changes to this deck seem to be just what was needed for the current meta.  After reaching rank 3 last season with the previous version of this deck (found here) I was being totally destroyed by aggro deck after aggro deck.  Adding another zombie chow and replacing one truesilver champion with a coghammer really helps against aggro.  In addition the big game hunter which was removed is only helpful late game, and the murlock knight which was also removed is really only useful after turn 6, which is just too slow against all these aggro decks I've been facing.  Since I don't have Justicar truehart, I put in a mind control tech for additional anti aggro but otherwise I'm using the deck as is.  Finally I am annihilating those damn tunnel troggs and getting sweet revenge.  

 

Anyways I'm a pretty new player, only been playing a few months, but this is my experience so far.

I can confirm that Loatheb is definitely a good pick in this meta infested with the aggro shamans.

I replaced 1xQuartermaster, 1xSylvanas with Harrison and Loatheb after which I haven't lost any matches against aggro shamans unless i have an extremely bad draw/mulligan.

 

I believe Harrison is an auto-include in this Meta infested with aggro shamans and other paladins. 

Losing Sylvanas and 1xQuartermaster might seem bad, but there aren't enough control matchups in my current meta (at rank 5) other than control warrior and some freeze mage.   The warrior matchup is already heavily favored and Harrison only makes it better. Freeze mage is just a tryhard matchup, but the Loatheb inclusion definitely helps to some extent.

 

Let me know your thoughts on this.

I can somehow understand BGH drop (even though it's some kind of minor counter to Secretin), but no Owl? Meta is generally:

Secret Paladin/Mid-range Paladin/Tempo Mage + the rest. All 3 require you to play Owl - Paladin has Tirion, which you don't have other answers to and Owl is good against Scientists in Tempo Mage. Add to this Hunter, which is always there, no matter how meta looks and Shredders, still played everywhere. I feel like Owl should definitely be there.

Reached legend in EU with midrange paladin a couple of days ago, ~60-62% winrate.

My deck is a bit different, I run 1x murloc knight, 1x bgh, 1x uldaman, 1x owl, 1x harrison, 2x healbot and no sylvanas.

 

Murloc is just broken in a way, you can snowball with it very easily and it requires instant removal. Preferably you wait for T6 with it, but let's say if your opponent is a priest, you are pretty safe to drop it on T4. Priest just has no answer apart from SW:P and Entomb later on. It is generally a very strong card.

 

Uldaman is situational but versatile, can help regain board control. Depending on the opponent you either keep it or go for early better board situation.

 

Owl is too useful to scrap. It is essential vs priest as you just have no means to remove deathlord early on.

 

Harrison is great vs shaman, if you destroy their doomhammer it is pretty much game over for them. Also it is very good in mirror, vs hunter and warrior (not so many around though). Can help vs rogue too.

 

BGH is very good vs secret paladin, aggro druid and these are quite popular decks. 

 

I tried Tuskarr a bit but it is too unstable for me, you cannot depend on it at all. That's why I use 2x healbot, which gives more stability and helps in shaman/hunter matchups a lot. Also vs combo druid, freeze mage.

 

Overall this deck is about controlling the board from the start. If you lose it, it is very very hard to get back, basically it is Tirion, EQ+CC or Dr.Boom that's left.

When you have control, use hero power more often, patience is the key. It is easy to overextend and then you have no more minions to get back in. 

Really problematic matchups are Control Priest, Oil Rogue, Freeze Mage, other than that it is mostly 50/50 or a bit better, it is about your decisions. A very stable and reliable deck but you lack that kaboom factor.

Hi,

 

It definitely works. But I found Keeper of Uldaman to be a key card. I played with a crazy warrior and I debuffed his Garrosh and Ysera with my Keepers. Also, buffing your own Recruits leads to some pretty good trades.

 

I don't have Coghammer, however I have Sword of Justice. I must say it combines very well with Muster or Dr. Boom.

 

I have only one Quartermaster, so I chose Bolvar in its place (I had it for a long time in my collection and I don't have dust to make a second Quartermaster right now). It's on the curve and it gets serious buffs for example after your Muster is cleared by a rogue's FoK or Bladeflurry. 

 

From rank 10 upwards you get some really intense matches. I love this deck.

 

Have fun.

Been playing this deck recently and been having an amazing run with it so far (14-1) with some mods. 1 x truesilver, 1 x harrison, 1 x tuskarr jouster for the coghammer, healbot and consecration. I dunno why you would ever drop tuskarr, the body is just so much better thank healbot, even accounting for the more inconsistent healing. Any thoughts about these changes? And I do wonder if there is a universe in which this deck doesnt get wrecked by heavy control like freeze mage :(

      Anton "Dvck" Lund found his way out of a jam on the ladder. Can you?
      Dvck and Aleco discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup.
      The player interviews I've done with RayC and TerrenceM have been some of the most fun and informative episodes of "What's the Move?", so I was very excited when Anton "Dvck" Lund reached out to me via reddit with a play from a recent game of his. Playing as Combo Dragon Priest, Dvck was able to find his way out of a tough spot against Murloc Paladin. Can you do the same?
      In this week's episode, Dvck and I discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup. For what ended up being a relatively short episode by "WTM" standards, I was pleasantly surprised by how much we were able to break down together so quickly. The interview with Dvck was as fun as it was informative, so I hope to have him back on the show soon! If you're interested in watching some high-legend gameplay, be sure to tune into Dvck's stream on twitch.tv.
      You can look forward to a few more episodes about the Hearthstone World Championships in the coming weeks, but I always welcome submissions and suggestions for future episodes. Did you have a favorite play from the world championships? Feel free to link me the VOD here on Icy Veins or send me a message on twitter @Aleco_P.
      Thanks for watching!

      Kolento and ShtanUdachi found themselves in nearly identical situations at the world championships - but did they make the same decisions?
      Episode 14 of "What's the Move?" discusses the importance of being mana efficient in the early game, as well as the relationship between speed and value.

      The Hearthstone World Championships were full of incredible plays, sticky situations, and valuable lessons to be learned from the best players on the planet. There were far too many great plays to analyze in a single video, so for the next few episodes of "What's the Move?" I'll be breaking down all of my favorite plays from the World Championship weekend.
      To kick things off we have a pair of Tempo Rogue vs. Highlander Priest matchups featuring Kolento and ShtanUdachi. Both players drew nearly identical opening hands, but did they did make same decisions?
      If you managed to spot a particularly tricky or interesting play from the recent World Championships, please feel free to link it in the comment section below! I'd love to break down as many viewer-submitted topics as I can in the coming weeks and months, and I have little doubt that I may have missed some of the most fascinating plays from the tournament during my initial viewing.
      Wishing you all the best of luck in the post-nerf meta!

      Welcome to the post-Corridor Creeper meta.
      Hearthstone Update 10.2 is now live worldwide and it's a big one!
      The first change it brings are the nerfs to four cards that have terrorised dominated the meta up until now. Bonemare now costs 8 mana, Patches the Pirate no longer has Charge, Raza the Chained makes the Hero Power cost (1) instead of (0) and Corridor Creeper has been butchered down to 2 attack. You can read Aleco's interesting opinion piece on Blizzard's nerf policy here.
      The second big addition of this patch is the Ranked Play update, which will take effect on March 2018. Players will now drop only 4 ranks with each monthly reset, all ranks will have 5 stars and you will only need to win 5 Ranked games to earn the monthly card back.
      The Year of the Mammoth Bundle is also finally available on the Shop. For $19.99 or 19.99 EUR, you can get 30 packs - 10 for each of the Year of the Mammoth expansions (Un'Goro, KFT, K&C). Don't forget that the Quest for Packs event is still ongoing and an addition has been made to the grand prize winner reward: $1.200 (read here for more info)!
      Lastly, the patch introduces the Wildfest event. From February 19 to March 11, Hearthstone is going Wild! Initially, you will be able to draft cards in Arena mode that are exclusive to Wild. Second, even though Tavern Brawl is usually on Wild format, there will be two special Wild Brawls. The first one is called "Venture Into the Wild" and it will just contain premade Wild decks for each class. The second one, "The Wild Brawlisseum", is basically a Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl, but with a major improvement: the first run will be free for everyone. You can read more about Wildfest here.
      Below you can read the patch notes, which describe all the updates as well as various bug fixes. A massive change is that the timer for the first two turns will now be shorter!

      According to the Principal Game Designer, Cubelock isn't as powerful as it seems.
      Cubelock won't be touched in the upcoming balance changes which, for many people, is a sign that the deck will completely dominate the meta after said changes become active.
      The deck is already prominent enough that people have started making false claims about it. A Reddit user claimed that he faced 17 Cubelocks in a row! However, Mike Donais put the matter into place by saying that there was no such streak in Blizzard's internal data and that Cubelock is currently the 12th best deck.
      He subsequently explained that he expects the deck to rise after the nerfs, but he's not too worried because it's a challenging (and expensive, I would add) deck to master. If the team feels that Cubelock is too powerful, though, they will evaluate it.
      mdonais
      I just checked the data, and no one played 17 cubelocks in a row today.
      If you are indeed having trouble with Cubelock there are several decks that beat it consistently right now. It is currently the 12th best deck.
      I did enjoy the title of your post though. (source)
       
       
      A couple people asked why the stats I mentioned don't metch VS power ranking so I looked up VS 79 and across all rankings Control Warlock is the 10th best deck. I assume they mix control and cube warlock in their stats. We have decks broken out a bit more but 10th gives you the general idea.
      Obviously after the nurfs it will be stronger since none of the cards in cubelock are being nurfed and that concerns me but it is a pretty challenging deck with a lot of opportunities to show off player skill. People will eventually get better at playing it, but people will also put in more weapon destruction or silence cards if it gets more popular.
      I am excited to see what people figure out after the patch. If Warlock is a big problem after people have some time to adjust and tune the new decks then we will look into it. I have said many times before that win rate is not the most important factor in our nurf decisions. How people feel matters more, so we will listen to players and make decisions based on that, just like we did in the past with Quest Rogue and Patron Warrior. (source)
