      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 :(

      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?
