      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 :(

      A Shaman weapon and a Neutral Beast have been revealed. Let's check them out!
      Amani War Bear was revealed by MustPlay. They also unveiled Revenge of the Wild.

      This looks like a decent pack filler card. It definitely is excellent in Arena. We'll have to see if it survives in Constructed: in the Thai stream it was played along with Revenge of the Wild in a Kathrena deck. If people find ways to Recruit, Resurrect or summon this directly from their hand, it might see Constructed play.
      Likkim was revealed by Chinese streamer FatCatBall on YouTube. The video has English subtitles.

      Shaman keeps getting variations of the same weapon. Likkim definitely looks on par with Spirit Claws and Jade Claws. As shown in the video, the +2 Attack lasts for two turns: the turn you Overload and the next turn that your Crystals are still overloaded. The issue is that Overload Shaman, while viable, isn't exactly good either. We'll have to see if any other cards that support this archetype are printed in Rastakhan's Rumble. On a vacuum, though, if you find a way to Overload yourself, this weapon looks quite powerful.

      The reveal season for Rastakhan's Rumble has kicked off with the customary live stream. This time, the hosts are Senior Game Designer Peter Whalen and Regiskillbin.
      The stream has conculded. All the cards revealed will also be added into our Rastakhan's Rumble hub. The full schedule for the following card reveals can be found here.
      Nine cards were revealed:







      The counter doesn't start over if you bounce Jan'alai!
      The Hero Power hitting adjacent minions counts for Jan'alai's counter! Works with Frost Lich Jaina's Hero Power. However, Ice Walker only freezes the targeted minion and not the adjacent ones with the Spirit present.

      It turns out that Dragon Warrior is definitely going to return in Rastakhan's Rumble and the Warrior Legendary Champion is proof of that!
      The card was revealed in the third episode of the Wronchi Animations series of videos for Rastakhan's Rumble (here is Part 1 and Part 2). Krag'wa the Frog is literally swallowing the opponent Annoy-o-trons, when War Master Voone shows up, astounding Garrosh in the audience.
      The video has an older version of the card, since it looks like the team decided that the final version of Voone is actually a 4-mana 4/3:

      The wording is slightly vague, but the copies are added to your hand. As shown in the video, this could work great with The Boomship. However, if you are playing expensive Dragons, I don't see how useful it would be to have more copies of them unless you are absolutely sure that the game is going to last long enough so you can play them all. There's also the problem that currently in Standard there aren't that many powerful Dragons and we've yet to see any new ones in Rastakhan's Rumble. Other than that, War Master Voone and the newly revealed Firetree Witchdoctor can work great in a Dragon Warrior deck and let it be noted that they are both Even cards.

      It seems that Dragons will have a big part in Rastakhan's Rumble as this versatile and cheap Neutral minion can Discover a spell if you are holding a Dragon!
      Hafu revealed this card on YouTube:

      We haven't seen any Dragons revealed so far, but it's safe to assume that they will have some kind of presence in Rastakhan's Rumble. People are already thinking that Dragon Warrior might be a thing, due to the reveal of Smolderthorn Lancer. The Discover component of this card makes it very versatile and probably a staple in Dragon decks to come, since it's undeniable that Dragons will keep being printed in future expansions. The potential is definitely there, but without having seen any other Dragons from the upcoming expansion it's difficult to talk about which classes Firetree Witchdoctor can find a home in.

      As the trend is in latest expansions, we have yet another minion that supports the Healing/Control Paladin archetype.
      The card was revealed by PhenomenGames on YouTube. The video is in Russian.

      (Source: Official Site)
      Paladin gets its own version of Hooked Reaver. It's not clear whether you need to restore Health on your hero or you can just heal any minion for this to work. A lot of cards have been printed in the latest expansions that promote this archetype of Paladin deck (even though Aggro Paladin always ends up winning) and maybe it is its time to shine. Other than that, Zandalari Troll Paladins are soon coming to World of Warcraft and it's good to see them in Hearthstone as well!
