      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 :(

      Dave Kosak is here with a new Hearthside Chat to talk about Dungeon Runs. He also showcased a legendary card from the new expansion!
      We've already talked about Dungeon Runs, one of the new features that Kobolds & Catacombs will bring. Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak explains in this latest Hearthside Chat the design process behind Dungeon Runs.
      Dave presented some unique elements only present in Dungeon Runs. For example, there is a card you can pick called Cloak of Invisibility, which has a Passive effect of giving your minions permanent Stealth.
      He also gave some insight on the encounters. Some Dungeon Runs can have thematic encounters, like there's a band of Troggs or Trolls you will have to beat. As far as the Trolls are concerned, Battlecrier Jin'zo has a passive effect that is similar to Brann Bronzebeard, which you and him can both benefit from! Similarly, Spiritspeaker Azun's passive works like Baron Rivendare for both parties, while Voodoomaster Vex combines both of these passive effects!
      The narrator, that will be guiding you through your Dungeon Run, is King Togwaggle - the king of the Kobolds himself! He is also going to be an actual card available in the next expansion:

      Here's the official blog post with everything you need to know about Dungeon Runs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What’s a Dungeon Run?
      Dungeon Run is a new insanely fun, single-player “rogue-like” mode where you’ll face deadly encounters and collect incredible Treasures to build a deck worthy of a hero!
      When your Dungeon Run starts, you’ll choose a Hero and receive a starting deck consisting of 10 cards. You’ll use it to overcome eight encounters of increasing difficulty (chosen randomly from a huge pool of 48 possible encounters!) to clear the run.

      That initial deck might be enough to help you squeak by your first opponent, but you’ll need to get stronger if you hope to clear the whole run. Each time you defeat a Dungeon Run encounter, you’ll be given an opportunity to “level up” your Dungeon Run deck with themed sets of three cards appropriate to your class. Occasionally, you’ll also be able to pick from a selection of three incredibly powerful Treasure cards—non-collectible cards and abilities made just for this mode that are too blatantly overpowered to see normal play.
      You’ll need all that power—as well as your wits—because these encounters can be fiendishly difficult. Victory is not assured, and each encounter has its own unique perils. If one of them gets the better of you, defeat is permanent, so you’ll have to start a different run with a whole new deck!
      If you manage to complete a full Dungeon Run with each of the nine Classes—no mean feat!—you’ll add the Candle King card back to your collection.

      Mage's Spellstone card for hints at a potential Elemental theme for the class in the upcoming set.
      Mage's Spellstone was revealed today by Chinese Hearthstone streamer LvGe, hinting at a potential Elemental theme for the Mage class in K&C:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      The upgraded versions of Ruby Spellstone will provide an additional random Mage Spell for every two Elementals you can play while this card is in your hand, meaning that this card is capable of becoming a two mana Cabalist's Tome! The lesser version of this spell isn't very enticing, but both of the upgraded versions of Ruby Spellstone seem like quite the deal. Unfortunately, the requirement to upgrade Ruby Spellstone is quite prohibitive and will likely hold this card back from seeing widespread play on the ladder.
      Let us know what you think about Ruby Spellstone in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      In this article, we are covering two new cards: Temporus, a Priest legendary minion, and Benevolent Djinn, a Paladin common minion.
      Benevolent Djinn was revealed earlier today by Thai player Anothersayoran1. The name of the card was officially confirmed by Puffin.

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is difficult to judge this card without seeing it in action. It’s comparable to Friendly Bartender: while the Djinn heals for more, its 2 attack value is a bit mediocre for a 3-mana minion. Shaman’s Hot Spring Guardian is slightly better, since it has Taunt and a targeted heal effect. Then again, Djinn also acts like a Taunt, in the sense that your opponent probably has to spend early resources to remove its powerful effect. Both cards, though, are beaten by Tar Creeper.
      This make the Djinn a great anti-aggro tool. Additionally, it synergises well with Blackguard and its Elemental tribe means that maybe we’ll get to see an Elemental Paladin. This is definitely a powerful Arena card. But can it secure a spot in constructed mode? It looks difficult, since Paladin already has some great 3-mana minions.

      This intriguing minion was revealed by Eurogamer. Its sister site, Metabomb, sat down with Peter Whalen and Ben Thompson to talk about this card. Both developers think that Temporus can be run in either the classic OTK Priest (Divine Spirit + Inner Fire) or in two new versions of Dragon Priest: a more midrange one and an OTK one with Malygos. 
      It would be interesting to see what it's interaction is going to be with Brann Bronzebeard. Temporus is a "high risk, high reward" card and, even if you don't like it or it turns out to be bad, you'd still have to commend its design.

      The 2016 Hearthstone World Champion revealed this rare Druid card.
      Grizzled Guardian was unveiled on Pavel's YouTube channel. It's a rare Druid Beast, that costs 8 mana and has 3 attack and 5 health. It has Taunt and Deathrattle: "Recruit 2 minions that cost (4) or less". Pavel's video is in Russian, but you can enable accurate English subtitles to see what the World Champion has to say about that card.
      After watching Pavel's video, I am convinced that Grizzled Guardian isn't as bad as it looks at first sight. Sure, its stats are garbage, but you should also factor in the stats of the minions it pulls from your deck when it dies. Still, it's hard to see it fit into the current meta. Perhaps, it can see play when the Year of the Kraken sets rotate out of Standard. It also weakens the 8-mana slot for Evolve and similar effect.
      What's your opinion on Grizzled Veteran? As always, all the cards of the new expansion can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.
      PS: Turns out it's not Hogger 3.0 :(

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.
