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,

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?

 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.

Hi! I just opened Grommash in arena award, and I have all except second frothing berserker, how can I replace it? Thanks.

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.

      Friday was the second day of the group stage of the HCT 2017 World Championship. Here's what happened (spoilers ahead)!
      Group C
      This group had only champions from Europe and North America: ShtanUdachi represented Russia, Ant represented the US, Sintolol represented Germany and Purple represented Canada. The first match of a day saw Alexey "ShtanUdachi" Barsukov easily beat Anthony "Ant" Trevino with a score of 3-1.
      Then, it was time for one of NA's favourite's Ryan "Purple" Murphy-Root to face off against Thomas "Sintolol" Zimmer. Sintolol is one of the few players that has brought Big Spells Mage in this tournament and Purple opted not to ban it, which turned out to be a mistake. Purple took a quick 2-0 lead in the beginning, but Sintolol came back with his Combo Dragon Priest against Purple's traditional Higlander Priest. Even though Purple denied Sinto's 4/18 Twilight Drake with a clever play involving a stolen Inner Fire, the German player still managed to win that game with a 44/44 Kabal Talonpriest. Sintolol then proceded to reverse-sweep his opponent (3-2). Overall, this was one of the series with the smartest plays.
      Afterwards, Purple easily eliminated Ant with a clean sweep (3-0). The other game of Group C was the battle of European giants: ShtanUdachi versus Sintolol. Sinto's Mage remained unbanned again and he managed to take the first game against ShtanUdachi's Jade Druid. In the last match, Sintolol made an impressive play with his Priest, involving stealing ShtanUdachi's Fandral Staghelm and using a pre-obtained Nourish. The German player humbly admitted later that he hadn't planned this play, it was just luck but it was enough to crown him as the victor of Group C with a score of 3-1.
      Group D Match W-L Sintolol 2-0 ShtanUdachi 1-1 Purple 1-1 Ant 0-2 Group D
      Group D has representatives from all 4 big regions: Surrender from Korea, OmegaZero from China, Fr0Zen from the US and Neirea from Ukraine. Jung-Soo "Surrender" Kim had a tense first match against Zheng "OmegaZero" Lin. The Korean player, whom a lot of people have voted for, ultimately won the series with 3-2. Then, it was Yevgeniy "Neira" Shumilin against Frank "Fr0zen" Zhang. Neirea must have noticed the performance of Sintolol's Big Spells Mage, because he quickly banned Fr0zen's Mage (he's a notoriously good Freeze Mage player). However, this wasn't enough since the American player easily beat Neirea with a score of 3-1.
      Neira also lost with the same score from OmegaZero in the elimination match. Thus, both of Ukraine's players (Kolento and Neirea) were eliminated.
      The winner's match between Surrender and Fr0zen was intense. The Korean Summer Champion also saw that Mage was a force to be reckoned with and he banned that deck, letting the audience finally see a Warlock deck in action during the World Championship. Surrender played impressively with his Priest in the first game against Fr0zen's Druid. However's Fr0zen won the two next games in a row, putting Surrender in a difficult position. The next match, with Fr0zen's Cubelock and Surrender's Aggro Druid, was very close: Surrender got lucky in the end and he evened out the score. In the last game, Cubelock proved to be a liability for Fr0zen, as his draw was weak, and Surrender managed to come out at the top of his group (3-2).
      Group D Match W-L Surrender 2-0 Fr0zen 1-1 OmegaZero 1-1 Neirea 0-2 Final Remarks
      It became apparent from this deck that players, who brought unique decks and not the usual meta ones, stood out. We saw that the previous day with Orange's Hunter. Now, it was Sintolol's Big Spells Mage that made the difference in Group C. The experienced players of Group D must have noticed that Mage's performance, because Fr0zen's Mage was banned in both games he played. On the other hand, the traditional Priest, Druid and especially Rogue meta decks have had an average performance, while Fr0zen's Cubelock showed that maybe Warlock isn't so powerful as it seems.
      If there was one player that left an impression to the audience, it was Europe's sole champion to secure a guaranteed spot in the quarterfinals, Sintolol. He made some really smart plays that left everyone with their mouth open and he remained humble and sincere in his post-game interviews. On the other hand, the Group D winner Surrender had two very close games (3-2). Even though he showed his talent with Highlander Priest once again, it was mostly luck and not skill that helped him win these two games. Of course, he still remains a favourite for the World Championship and his reactions are always amusing to watch.
      The decider matches are currently underway and we'll be back later today with another recap!

      The final stage of the HCT 2017 Worldc Championship has kicked off with the group stage. On Thursday, we saw matches on groups A and B. Beware because spoilers are following!
      Group A
      This group consists of Frederik "Hoej" Nielsen, Julien "DocPwn" Bachand, Jon "Orange" and Chen "tom60229" Wei Lin. The first match of the day was between the Danish Hoej vs the Canadian DocPwn (2-3). This was one of the longest matches, with both players displaying exceptional skill. It all culminated into the 5th game, where DocPwn managed to get his Keleseth Rogue early game going and beat Hoej's Priest. In the other game, tom60229 from Taiwan easily beat Orange from Sweden with a score of 3-1.
      The two defeated players, Hoej and Orange, proceeded to play against each other. Hoej's Murloc Paladin, the deck that made him stand out compared to other contestants, betrayed him as he lost 3 times in a row with it! Thus, one of the favourites for the World Championship was eliminated. DocPwn also sweeped his opponent tom, but he had a much harder time. Their last game, with Keleseth Rogue for DocPwn and Jade Druid for tom, had quite a few upsets and you should definitely watch it.
      The decider match between Orange and tom60229 will take place on Saturday.
      Group A Match W-L Total W-L DocPwn 2-0 6-2 Orange 1-1 4-3 tom60229 1-1 3-4 Hoej 0-2 2-6 Group B
      Muzahidul "Muzzy" Islam, Jason "JasonZhou" Zhou, Aleksandr "Kolento" Malsh and Samuel "SamuelTsao" Tsao play in this group. Muzzy, who represents America and is one of the favourite's to win the World Championship, beat the Chinese JasonZhou with a score of 3-1. In the next match, even though SamuelTsao made some mistakes, he managed to even the score with the Ukranian legend. In their final game, the young Taiwanese's Priest beat Kolento's Druid with an impressive 46-damage OTK (3-2).
      The elimination series between Kolento and JasonZhou is totally nail-biting! The two experienced players evened out each other and it all came down to the final game with a Keleseth Rogue mirror match. Jason drew better and he managed to eliminate crowd favourite Kolento (along with everyone who voted for him) with a score of 3-2. SamuelTsao managed to beat Muzzy with the same score in another intense series. Their last match (Warlock vs Priest) had a lot of upsides, but in the end luck smiled to SamuelTsao.
      The decider match between Muzzy and JasonZhou will take place on Saturday.
      Group B Match W-L Total W-L SamuelTsao 2-0 6-4 Muzzy 1-1 5-4 JasonZhou 1-1 4-5 Kolento 0-2 4-6 Final Remarks
      Thursday was a day of surprises, particularly unpleasant ones for Europe. Favourites Kolento (RIP packs) and Hoej were eliminated; I am mostly suprised about Hoej, since he had one of the strongest deck line-ups of this Championship. Statistically speaking, I don't think we'll have a European World Champion this time.
      On the other hand, outsiders DocPwn and SamuelTsao managed to come out on the top of their groups. DocPwn's effort is certainly admirable, since he's not exactly a full-time professional Hearthstone player: he was calm, level-headed and showed some exceptional critical decision making. In contrast, Samuel's youth and inexperience were quite evident, but his opponents also underestimated him. I think he has a lot to show for in the future.
      The not-so-surprising highlight of the day was Warlock being banned in almost all matches. Among the decks that stood out were Orange's Hunter (he's the only one that brought one and he won 2/2 of his games with it) and JasonZhou's interestingly teched Aggro Druid.
      Day 2 of the Group Stage is currently underway, so make sure to watch it!

      The two Hearthstone developers talked to IGN about the design process behind some of the most impactful cards from Kobolds & Catacombs.
      First of all, Peter Whalen and Mike Donais confirmed that there will be an update on February, a month after the World Championship. This patch will contain new events and possibly balance changes. They will take a look at the meta as it's been and as it is in the World Championship and they will decide accordingly.
      Moving on, they talked about some of the classes and how K&C cards have affected them. Starting with Warlock, Cubelock was a deck that was tested internally and it was an archetype the team was "certainly concerned about and [they] played a bunch of games with it". Carnivorous Cube was also tested internally in Recruit Hunter and in Quest Druid. As far as Possessed Lackey is concerned, there was a second version of it that read "Battlecry: If you control a Demon, Recruit a Demon", while Dark Pact was 0 mana at some point. Lastly, Rin, the First Disciple's seals used to have different effects and Azari, the Devourer was a 15/15 untargetable minion.
      The two devs talked next about the other dominating class of the current meta: Priest. Mike Donais pointed out that Highlander Priest was already doing well, so it was only given one new card: Psychic Scream. On the other hand. Big Priest has a pretty medium win rate, even though it can feel frustrating to play against. It's also a deck that will lose several cards in the upcoming rotation. At this point, the devs repeated that they are looking forward to develop and see in action new playstyles in the post-Barnes era. Finally, during the design process Twilight's Call could summon any minion, not just Deathrattles, but this was deemed too powerful.
      The next class to be discussed was Rogue. The team is happy with how balanced the Kingsbane Rogue deck turned out to be. Some internal iterations of the Rogue legendary weapon were dual-wielded daggers or a weapon that had the Battlecry: Discover a card, everything you draw is a copy of that. Mike also talked about Valeera the Hollow: he expected her to be more powerful than she already is, but maybe players will find a way to use her more in the future.
      There were a few words about Hearthstone's currently weakest class: Shaman. The devs think that the Shaman Spellstone is a powerful "sleeper" card, although maybe there's presently not a proper deck for it. They were also slightly worried about Unstable Evolution. Another "sleeper" card for them is Warrior's Drywhisker Armorer.
      An important point is that when asked about Corridor Creeper, Peter said that it's "one of the cards that raised a red flag". Lastly, they talked about King Togwaggle and the numerous iterations he had - all around swapping decks with your opponent. The penalty on the spell card isn't high enough on purpose, because they didn't want Togwaggle to be a super competitive card.
      I've tried to summarise the most important points, but you should definitely check out the entire interview on IGN. There's much more detail behind the design process of Kobolds & Catacombs, while there is also temp artwortk of cards as well as two cards that never made it into the game!

      This week's Brawl honours the 3 previous Hearthstone World Champions!
      The 2018 World Championship is about to begin and Team 5 is celebrating by giving us a very special Tavern Brawl. In this Brawl, you get to play with decks that the previous world champions from 2014, 2015 and 2016 used on their way to the top. Your player name will even change to the respective Champion: Firebat, Ostkaka or Pavel!
      Here are the deck archetypes you can get:
      Firebat's Undertaker Hunter Firebat's Ramp Druid Firebat's Miracle Rogue Firebat's Zoolock Ostkaka's Patron Warrior Ostkaka's Oil Rogue Ostkaka's Freeze Mage Pavel's Tempo Mage Pavel's Malygos Miracle Rogue Pavel's Midrange Shaman Pavel's C'Thun Warrior Pavel's Malygos OTK Druid You might think: "why would I want to play a deck from 2014 with cards that have been nerfed"? Well, all cards are on their pre-nerfed versions, therefore they are basically in the same state as when originally used by each World Champion. So, say hello to pre-nerf Undertaker, Leper Gnome, Hex and many others.
      Amnesiac can never catch a break.
      A slight inconsistency is that cards that generate other cards or tokens, like Piloted Shredder or Babbling Book, can generate cards/tokens from later expansions. For example, my opponent's dead Shredder created Friendly Bartender, a card that neither Champion had encountered at their time.
      Enjoy the Brawl and tune in to the World Championship this weekend!
