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.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
