Demonwrath is not in standard play.

 

How so? It's from BrM.

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?

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
