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.

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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
