Demonwrath is not in standard play.

I've been trying figure out a good counter for the losses to Reno Highlander for the last couple days. I had all the cards already except for Leeroy, but I had some dust so I figured it'd be worth it to give this a shot.  One swap I'm trying is Hogger, Doom of Elwynn for the Fen Creeper - it's not really an even swap but if they don't silence him he's pretty decent at stacking taunts.  I didn't have the Firelord, so I'm throwing in Y'Shaarj, who for the last couple of days has been my favorite late game card. I've always wanted to fit summoning stone into a deck but it's just too easy to remove with 0 attack.. Y'Shaarj has all the fun of random summon without needing a spell to generate it, and is also a 10/10.  And yeah it can be iffy with the random minion draws, but usually by the time I throw it they're scrambling to find a counter, and by then the board has a few random minions on it.  And if they can't remove it Faceless has a chance to double it - or whatever it draws - as well.  Thanks for the awesome decks and for saving me hours of struggle for so many months!

Sen'jin shieldmasta seems significantly stronger than Fen Creeper.

 

Curve is important, the deck has more plays on 4 than 5, hence the extra 5-drop.

Can I use Jaraxus instead of Cho, since I don't have it? Also, could Elise be of use in this deck?

I packed "DOOM!" recently and I'm thinking of using it instead of "Twisting Nether," but I am not sure if it is a good substitution? Also, I don't have "Twisting Nether" so I would have to craft it. I don't have "Cho'gall" either, but I do have "Lord Jaraxxus." I was wondering if I should substitute those cards in the deck? However, without the "Cho'gall" it would be harder to cast "DOOM!" as a reliable tempo play. So, should I use "DOOM!" but craft "Cho'gall?" What are my best options to use my dust efficiently? I do need some for other decks I am creating from this website. I would rather not use 2,000 dust.

And how about Arch Tief Rafaam? What would you cut from deck for Elise (and/or Rafaam)?

Not a fan of either of those cards personally, so I wouldn't recommend them.

To the DOOM! question, I just don't feel like the card is very good. You can use it if you don't have access to Twisting Nether, but if you have the option, Nether is almost always better.

Is this the most consistent version of Renolock in standard? Also, which of the following could I sub out for Jaraxxus: Cho'Gall or Ragnaros?

A few questions:

Is this the most consistent variation of Renolock?

Could Ragnaros be substituted with Jaraxxus?

How would abomination fare instead of fen creeper?

Why Ragnaros over Alexstraza? Alexstraza seems to make more sense with the leeroy combo, not to mention it can be used to reset your own health to 15 in emergency situations. Also, cho'gall seems to be almost completely useless.

Not too shabby considered I am missing Cho'gall and Leeroy. 

I replaced it with Bog Creeper and Reckless Rocketeer respectively.

I don't own rag so i've tried alex and jaraxxus on combo renolock before whispers. Alex is too slow, Jaraxxus is too risky, and also slow. Rag is just too good in terms of late game tempo, plus he is almost certain to clear the way for combo next turn if he goes face

 

i just cant wait to try this version.. 16 mana turns with chogall...so much fun

Alex is too slow, Jaraxxus is both risky and slow- they rarely win games. Rag offers significant tempo boost if he goes board, and clears the way for combo is he goes face. He's the best choice.

 

Also cant wait for 16 mana turns with chogall..I'll definatelly try this! Thanks!

Maybe I'm missing something but Leroy (5) + Power Overwhelming (1) + Faceless (5) = 11 mana..... how do you play all three cards in one turn?

Next time. try to read the whole guide. Sottle invests a lot of time in these.

 

Quoting a paragraph from the guide :

 

When the time is right, you will usually need to play Emperor Thaurissan onto the board in order to discount your combo pieces, since under standard conditions, your full burst combo costs 11 Mana. Since this is only slightly outside your regular Mana constraints, it is enough to only hit one piece of the combo with your Emperor activation. However, against heavy Control decks, you may want to wait until you hit more combo pieces so that you have enough spare Mana to fit in extra cards like Abusive Sergeant to increase your damage output.

Looks like the edit notes on the deck are wrong - says add Alex, but not in main list.

 

BTW, anyone know an easy way to see what decks have been updated lately, since there's so much turnover?

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 1/10M NH, 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Introdution:
      <Turkeyism> is a (7/7M EN) (2/3M ToV) (3/10M NH) weekend raiding guild on Stormrage US. Our guild was originally formed in early 2013 as a 10man Heroic raid team with the goal to have fun and get as far as possible. After having defeated Heroic Garrosh in Siege of Ogrimmar and ending the Mists of Pandaria expansion ranked 19th on Stormrage, our team decided to push forward into Warlords of Draenor. With the introduction of Mythic in 6.0, our team set out to expand our roster, overcome new challenges, and defeat the final boss on Mythic, all while maintaining a fun atmosphere to raid in. We finished Warlords of Draenor ranking 14th on Stormrage and managed to get 27 of our raiders the Felsteel Annihilator mount from Mythic Archimonde. We are now currently raiding Mythic Nighthold and looking for additional players (870 ilvl+) who seek a challenge and want to have fun.
      Raid Times:
      Friday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      Saturday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      <Turkeyism> is a weekend raiding guild that raids two nights a week from 7:30 – 11:30pm EST on Friday and Saturdays.
      In Demand Classes:
      Paladin (Holy/ret)
      Druid (Balance)
      Priests (Shadow)
      Hunters (Marksmen/Beastmaster)
      Warlocks (Affliction/Demonology)
      Monks (Mistweaver/Windwalker)
      (We prefer the classes listed above but all exceptional applicants will be considered.)
      Guild Expectations:
      So as a guild there are a few things we expect our raiders and recruits to do/know.
      First, we expect our raiders/recruits to know their class fairly well. They should also have a good grasp of the encounters by either having first-hand experience, or by watching tutorials and kill videos online. Knowledge is power as the saying goes.
      Second, we expect players who wish to be part of the core raid team to understand that attendance and showing up on time to raid is important to the success of the guild. We understand when real life issues come up, however it isn’t fair to the other 19 players who showed up if you continuously miss raid because of “reasons”. This is why we want to make sure that our raiders/recruits understand that by joining our raid team, you are making a commitment to the rest of the group to show up every week. Ultimately, we are all individuals working together towards a common goal and our success or failure as a group depends upon people committing to the team.
      Third, we expect our raiders/recruits to be able to take criticism from others. If we notice that you could improve in any manner, we won’t hesitate to point it out. We won't ever attack others for making mistakes, but we will politely let them know of their blunders and how they could improve.
      Fourth, raiders/recruits should be willing to sit out for certain encounters. We know it isn’t the most fun thing to have to sit out on a boss fight, especially if there is loot or if you’ve worked hard getting to that encounter. However, not all fights are created equal and sometimes we have to ask players to sit out in order to have the best group composition to complete the encounter. Your willingness to sit out won’t be forgotten and we try to make sure that everyone gets a chance to kill the boss and get loot.
      Fifth, all recruits are expected to present WarcraftLogs in their applications. This will give us an idea of how you handle mechanics and how well you performed. We understand that your time is valuable and so is ours. By looking at your WarcraftLogs we can get an idea if you can perform within the required range were looking for before bringing you in to raid with us.
      Finally, our guild is made up of players in their early 20’s/mid-30’s and our chat can sometimes get spicy and very adult oriented. We can sometimes talk about off the wall stuff, some of which can get very “Rated R” very fast.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
