its probably too early to say but this deck works roughly as well as the wild version, im missing one hammer and one sentinel that ive substituted for lava shock and a second ancestral knowledge, but the deck seems good enough for daily play

How about Lava Shock in place of Eternal Sentinel?  Eternal Sentinel is surely the better value, but Lava Shock seems like a reasonable budget swap.

Totally fine.

I'd recommend Unbound Elemental as a non-overload 3-drop to curve into flamewreathed with instead of Tuskarr.

There are many games where Elemental can snowball and just win on its own, and some of the totems you can get from Tuskarr are basically useless.

Hey! How are you dealing the enemy taunts. I see no silence here. Most of the matchest, you'll get with 2-3 minion on the boards and the oponent will play a high value taunt, making your minion unefficent.

The deck is big enough now that you can generally smash through your opponent's Taunts. I've won games against Druid where they've slammed two Dark Arakkoas and a Twin Emperor against me, I find it very easy to keep going through large taunts making silence seem unnecessary.

durdleturtles: Tuskarr actually got a pretty big buff in the format by Vitality Totem being removed from the format, so the likelihood of Flametongue, Mana Tide or Totem Golem is quite high, that makes it worth it for me.

I've had great success replacing Sir Finley with Leeroy, and one of the lava bursts with windfury. Huge burst damage potential if you can use it on a faceless or Leeroy + a rockbiter.

Imho Tunnel Trogg is indispensable, as it synergizes with all overload cards = Pressure.

If I had to replace Finley, I would choose an earthshock to get an easy taunt removal on your finish.

I am not a fan of Leeroy, because I usually already finish on turn 6-7 with Rockbiter, Lavashock or Lavaburst.

Also as Leeroy is 6+ it can only function as a finisher and will dead hand, if you draw it on early turns.

I just got one eternal sentinel. Any replacement suggestions? (got no brm)

I replaced it with an unbound elemental. Is that fine?

Thanos for that fun and well working deck.

Shaman generally overloads a lot, so having a way to unlock your crystals is obligatory.

 

If you had brm, you could add a lava shock.

 

But since you dont have brm, i would recommend waiting until you have enough dust to craft the second eternal sentinel.

Can you explain the emphasis on turn 5 doomhammer to me?

 

It seems like in 90% of my games turn 4 is critical for board control, I'm casting feral spirits or lightning or lava burst or faceless and those plays usually end up dealing the same or more damage than having hammer a turn earlier.

Would Stormcrack be an acceptable replacement for Flame Juggler?  Or is it better to simply use the dust to craft the Jugglers?

dont you have another minion to replace it? like knife juggler?

 

with a spell you only deal damage once but a minion can attack several turns if it survives.

Yes, I do.  I didn't think of Knife Juggler.  Just thought of looking for something with 2 mana that has overload in it.  Ill try two Knifes and see how things go.

Hi Sottle

Wat would be the best tactic against C'Thun druid with this deck?  He hold too many 5-7 taunts, six of them ((

      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.
    • By Zadina
      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!
