I put Mal'ganis in the deck, so you can safely assume that I think the card is good, yes. The idea is that you need enough threats in the late-game once you've stabilised with Reno etc to seal out the game, adding another big threat like Mal'Ganis means that you can overwhelm your opponent's removal by having more total threats than they have removal.

As mentioned in the guide though, you can make like-for-like replacements for any of the cards in the deck really, So Rag, KT etc are all fine.

not that you are going to take the advice of a pleb, but I really like arch theif instead of mal'ganis, getting +10/+10 as a finisher or a board of 3/3s if you think the other guy could run out of board clears, its like 2 late game threats in one

Ha! Never even realised it was a class card.

 

I know you don't want to drop it on curve as a 4-drop, but I've seen it used to good effect in games that go to fatigue and it seemed to me like this deck could see a lot of matches like that. Actually, thinking about it (I can when I try really hard) Warlock and Life Tap are probably why AA has to be a class card.

I don't think Warlocks are the main reason. They already have "free" taps after dropping Justicar and she isn't played anyway. It is probably because of druids and rogues. They would be able to attack everything and take only 1 point of damage.

This was mentioned on Twitter - Animated Armor became a Mage card because it synergized far too well with Master of Disguise You could give it Stealth and basically become immortal.

Is it ok to replace demonwrath with explosive sheep? Are there any other replacements?

Explosive sheep is really bad here. It takes one extra turn and your opponent has a turn to deal with it. I feel like a Defender of Argus should be put in the place of Demonwrath (if you don't have a copy of it).

Using this deck for a while now and it is working out fine. However I see myself drafting the high cost cards way more often than my early game low mana cards. I want to remove Stallag and Feugen to get some more early game grip but I do not want to lose too much late game value for when I popped my Reno. Any suggestions what to replace Feugen and Stallag with? Much appreciated, thanks in advance.

@Sottle

I hope you won't mind if I will be the one to answer your question. 

So, if you want to keep both your early-game and late-game, you will swap them for one early- and one late-game card each. That would probably be Alexstrasza and Defender of Argus, or Refreshment Vendor, or even Fel Cannon (as seen in Stancifka's Starladder Renolock).

That's no problem. Alexstraza would defnitly be a good pick, it's a pity I dont have the card nor the dust to craft it. Defender of Argus is already in there and would I would like to have just one of each card because of the Reno. Currently playing with Fel Cannon in there but not too sure about my higher cost card. Thanks for your suggestions

I am using Wilfred Fizzlebang in this deck, which I find to be surprisingly strong. If the board is under control, then Wilfred + Life Tap is great. Often my late game cards like Ysera and Sylvanas Windrunner are drawn, or higher cost cards like Molten Giant. Discounting a Molten Giant is excellent if you have already played Reno Jackson. I think that Wilfred is a great addition to the deck, for it has helped me win many games. Any thoughts?

Wilfred is bit too situational, which is not exactly what you want in Renolock. I wouldn't personally use him, but if he works for you, then go for him.

I think Wilfred is horribly inconsistent, you're playing a 6 Mana card with 4/4 stats, so you're already missing out on about 3/3 of stats for your Mana costs, therefore that card that you draw needs to be above that to even start breaking even, plus in reality it's even slower than that because you have to play it on a turn where you can tap immediately, making it an 8 Mana play.

Sure it can be game winning sometimes, but the more consistent cards are what I favour.

Jaraxxus is stronger in fatigue war, and Mal'Ganis is stronger as a minion (probably because Jaraxxus isn't a minion at all). I would personally choose Jaraxxus since he is cool and feels stronger in my meta. However, he can be quite easily be replaced by Alexstrasza, so maybe go for Mal'ganis and add Alex.

Still waiting for the new meta - approved version. After nerfs to Molten Giant, BGH and even the ironbeak owl you have to expect some changes. And warlock is the only class I think for whom no refreshed Wild decks appeared yet. Sottle, you're doing an amazing job, thanks to you I managed to reach rank 1, and more recently 12 wins on the arena. Words cannot express my respect for your expertise and I uderstand you must have more than just craploads of work with TOG coming out, but please don't forget about the wild warlocks.

      The Season of Rastakhan has begun and today we have the first round of the Brawl of the Champions.
      As already explained, the Rumble Run is being brought into the Tavern Brawl and you can play one of the special Rumble Run decks against real opponents. Each class has three different Shrines, that promote different playstyles and are accompanied by premade decks that synergise with their respective Shrine.
      Here are the Shrines for this week:
      Druid: Bonds of Balance - At the end of your turn, gain Attack equal to your hero's Attack Hunter: Halazzi's Guise - Whenever you summon a Beast, it gains Rush, Taunt, or Poisonous. Mage: Jan'alai's Flame - Your Hero Power costs (O). Whenever it kills a minion, refresh it. Paladin: Shirvallah's Grace - After you cast a spell on a friendly minion, cast a copy of it on this one. Priest: Bwonsamdi's Tome - After you cast a spell, add a random Priest spell to your hand. Rogue: Bottled Terror - Your other minions have Stealth. Deathrattle: Give your minions +2 Attack. Shaman: Krag'wa's Grace - Your spells cost (2) less. Warlock: Blood Pact - Your spells cost Health instead of Mana. Warrior: Akali's Horn - Your minions have "Overkill: This can attack again". Unsurprisingly, the Shrines that are good in the Rumble Run are also effective versus actual opponents. This bunch of Shrines is quite decent, with the Priest and Mage ones being standouts. The weakest classes for this week are Warlock, Warrior and Hunter.
      The Brawl of the Champions itself, like all Tavern Brawls, rewards a Classic card pack upon victory. However, you can complete the seasonal repeatable quest by playing the Brawl 3 times to earn a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack.

      Joseph Magdalena is here to talk about the Season of Rastakhan event, which will begin on February 13.
      As we already know, this event will start in a couple of days and it will last until March 3. It's all about the Tavern Brawl mode during the three-week Season of Rastakhan as each week you will get a special quest to play 3 Tavern Brawls; the quest will award a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack.
      The Tavern Brawl will be the same each week and it's called the Brawl of Champions. Remember the Rumble Run? Well, now you will get to play against real opponents as one of the heroes of the Rumble Run, along with their special Shrine and complimentary deck. Since each class has 3 different Shrines in the Rumble Run, the Shrines for each class will be different each week and you will be able to swap classes if you choose so.

      Due to Update 13.2 going live a few hours later than intended, the Lunar New Year event will last one more day.
      The event will now finish on February 13 in the US and February 14 in Europe. Therefore, everyone will get an extra quest that awards both Gold and Arcane Dust! Don't forget that the day the Lunar Festival concludes, a new Tavern Brawl-centered event will begin: the Season of Rastakhan.

      Hey everyone!
      Due to the delays we hit yesterday with recent update pushing into the time for the Lunar New Year event, we are going to be extending the end date by a full day. The event will now last until February 13.
      Cheers and thanks again for your patience!

      After a small delay, the latest Hearthstone update is here bringing changes to five cards and the Lunar Festival seasonal event. After the Lunar Festival, there will be a new event, the Season of Rastakhan, with thematic Tavern Brawls and special rewards.
      Some juicy card changes have been implemented with this update. Cold Blood, Flametongue Totem, Hunter's Mark and Emerald Spellstone have had their mana cost increased by 1, while Equality will now cost 4 mana (up from 2).
      With this patch, the Lunar New Year event is now available for a week. Starting from today and until February 12, you can login to get a free Golden Fireworks Tech and enjoy quests that award both Gold and Arcane Dust. The Lunar New Year Bundle is also available in the Shop for $20 or 20 euros; it contains 30 packs in total, 10 from each of the Year of the Raven expansions.
      Right after the Lunar Festival, a new event will start: the Season of Rastakhan will last from February 13 up to March 3. This event is focused on the Tavern Brawl mode, with three different Brawls centered around picking a Rumble Champion and a Loa shrine. Moreover, during that period each Wednesday you will get a special repeatable quest to play 3 Tavern Brawls. The reward for this quest is a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack, so in total you will get three packs.
      Two new card backs have been added: Mark of Hakkar and Kul Tiras (the March 2019 Ranked Play Season card back). There's a dedicated blog post about the Mark of Hakkar card back, which can be acquired if you play against another player who has it. Αnd how do you originally get it? Well, it seems some players have been randomly selected and already have it in their collection and it's their job to spread the madness...
      You can check out the card backs in the patch notes below:

      Mark of Hakkar Kul Tiras Game Improvements
