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 ((

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      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.

      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!
