Im gonna try to build a form of this deck once i get the rest of naxx expac, but i will still lack the 3 legendaries listed (Grommash, Dr. Balanced and Sir Murloc) are there any okay replecements for them? i barely have legendaries (only have malygos and Emperor as of now, but plan to get all the naxx legedaries soon) so are cards like loatheb and kelthuzad and even emperor any good to replace the legendaries i lack for this deck? also, any good substitute for armorsmith? only have about 500 dust and dont wanna spend them crafting such a specific card, was planning on getting a couple of knife jugglers or something like that,

 

Thanks in advanced biggrin.png

This deck isn't really viable without all the late-game power. You could try Loatheb, KT, Shredders and a Cruel Taskmaster, but the deck will have much lower winrate than it would have with all the needed cards.

Armorsmith is used in Control Warrior, Dragon Warrior, Midrange Patron, Fatigue Warrior and Reno Warrior. I don't really think you will miss the dust.

Why Kor'kron Elite over Piloted Shredder?

They can be used as finishers, board control tool, if you're racing for damage they also help.

 

Anyway, I played patron from rank 14 to rank 3 with 60%+ winrate. Paladins and druids are still easy to beat, but this deck does extremely well against face shamans, Renolock (they run only 2 or 3 AOEs and you simply out tempo them), Priests often don't have that much board clears or they have to waste lightbomb on a Frothing (happened a few times). 

 

Although this deck is still very powerful, the more I play it the more I miss Warsong, it's such a shame they nerfed it like that sad.png

what can i substitute for sir finly and gromash. I'm thinking loatheb and cruel taskmaster, but I'm also thinking gorehowl instead of taskmaster, since it would make a better substitute for gromash.

Gorehowl is not really a replacement for Grom. Taskmaster, 2nd Corsair, and Loatheb are the best cards to go into the deck if you're making changes.

So i'm short a grom hellscream at the moment. I do however have a leeroy, would that be a viable replacement for the burst damage? granted it's not near the power of grom. It's the best I have and the only thing missing from this deck build is my lack of a grom. thanks in advance. cheers.

Did you read the comment above you? It answers the question you ask. If you are too lazy, the recommended minions are Taskmaster, Corsair and Loatheb.

Trying to learn this deck by playing in casual at the moment and having fun from the off. Can anyone recommend good YT vids or archived Twitch streams for this one? The guide is great and all but there's nothing like seeing someone who knows what they're doing actually play the deck.

 

Coming across a LOT of Face Shamans and thinking that Harrison Jones might be an excellent thing to have right now. What should I drop for him? I'm thinking probably Finley because he's not much use in these matchups anyway.

 

Small thing: The guide text mentions Loatheb but he's not in the build.

Sottle, have you played this one on stream? And have you considered linking guides to your archived Twitch videos?

I can recommend StrifeCro's video of him playing Midrange Patron (he has more of them, so you can look for those). 

That would be a reasonable swap, but your winrate will go down a bit against non-aggro decks.

So I ran into the original creator of this deck, Crane333, on ladder yesterday, and he told me that he has stopped using this particular build a long time ago. He said finley isn't that great and that he now plays belcher, cruel task, and shredders over kor'krons. Just an FYI if you are thinking of updating this decklist.

I also dropped Finley for a Belcher and swapped the Elites for Shredders. I just about prefer the Shredders but there's not a lot in it. Sometimes you really miss the Elites but the Shredders are better on curve I think.

 

I love this deck. The synergies in it are just insane. A Berserker just solo'd a game for me at 11 attack on turn 6 and 18 on turn 7, thanks to his Imp-losions and my Death's Bite and Unstable Ghoul. One dead Zoolock on turn 7. And I still had seven cards in my hand, including both Patrons and Grom. I'm looking at the replay in disbelief.

Belcher instead of finley, shredders over kor'krons, so what does cruel task replace?

funny how random decks at rank 17-20 beat the crap out of you using this deck

 Any thoughts on the viability of this deck in standard? Shredders can be swapped back to Kor'krons, Dr. 7 can easily be replaced by any large threat, but Death's Bite will be hard to replace. I've been experimenting with a simple Arcanite, but it simply doesn't have that effect.

You can use any card from the swap section, but I am sure that you can find 100 dust somewhere hidden in bad cards.

it took me one day to translate that sentence, please don't omit "dust" next time. I'll try to use kor'kron elite, saving dust for some more rare card.

Oh, sorry. I gotta admit that I wasn't perfectly sober when I made that sentence.

Although Kor'kron might save you dust, Frothing has simply higher value and can grow huge, especially in aggro/pally meta.

      Blizzard have announced that the next Hearthstone year will be called The Year of the Mammoth. Six cards from the Classic set will be moved to a new Hall of Fame set, which can only be played in Wild.
      The announcement explains that the new Hall of Fame set will include cards that are currently in the Reward set, but the big news here is the six cards that will be leaving Standard. You can see Blizzard's reasons on the link above, but I've given a few notes in this article. Those cards are shown below.
      As well as the removed cards, there will be no adventures in 2017. Instead we will be given three full expansions that will be accompanied by a single-player mission, which will be used to enhance flavour, and offer challenges. This sounds like it will be along the lines of an adventure, but optional. I feel this is a great change, as it hurts nobody.

      Azure Drake is simply in too many decks. It is a hard card to nerf without making it weak, but it is pretty much as powerful as a 5-drop can be. Removing this to free up other 5-drops makes sense.

      The reasoning for Sylvanas is similar. Blizzard's words make a lot of sense on this one, and also give an insight into the future:
      Blizzard
      Similar to Azure Drake, it’s hard to see a card at the six mana cost out-value Sylvanas. In addition, Sylvanas has the most powerful Deathrattle effect in the game—as a comparison, the Priest card Mind Control costs 10 mana. We have exciting Deathrattle build-arounds coming soon, and in combination with Sylvanas, they would be too powerful for Standard. This seems to imply that N'Zoth, the Corruptor will be making a big comeback soon!

      I suspect a lot of people will be glad to see the back of Ragnaros. The Random element was often a contentious issue.

      The removal of Power Overwhelming is a bit of a surprise, but it seems that it has mainly been nerfed because of its strength in combinaton with cards like Leeroy Jenkins and Faceless Manipulator. I would also assume that Warlock is going to be getting some fun new toys to replace it.

      Ice Lance has been removed to remove Freeze Mage and allow new strategies to develop. It is also interesting that Blizzard mention it will allow them to make cards that copy cards. That could also apply to Power Overwhelming, so I would expect something along those lines to be in the next set.

      Conceal leaving will make sense to everyone. It allows Gadgetzan Auctioneer to survive as an interesting card, and removes the annoyance of not being able to interact with your opponent.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is called Blood Magic. It is the 88th Tavern Brawl.
      Blood Magic has a simple enough concept, which is that all spells cost Health instead of Mana. This could lead to an interesting metagame where healing is premium, and expensive burn spells are used to finish your opponent. Violet Illusionist is a key card in this Brawl, it allows the burn finish to only kill your opponent and not yourself. I expect to see it a lot over the coming days. 
      This is the third constructed Brawl in a row. It is an interesting Brawl to me, as I have felt that Blizzard have been trying to push this mechanic slowly on us over the last few expansions, but are terrified of it. In other card games, paying Health for cards has often been a broken mechanic, and I feel this might be a test to see how far they can push it.
      As always, feel free to leave your own lists in the comments.
