Any substitutions for Gorehowl or The Black Knight? DE'd them a while back, would rather not spend the dust if there's a viable alternative.

You may have to look towards a more C'Thun focused build if you don't have access to those cards so that you can fight more effectively with minions. Otherwise just substitute them for whatever high value threats you have available to you. Baron Geddon etc.

What is the reason for the omission of Acolyte of Pain? Especially since it has combo potential with Blood to Ichor and Ravaging Ghoul.

Why even include Blood to Ichor?  The 2/2 Slime doesn't have Taunt and a 2nd Slam helps you draw into Elise/Monkey, Justicar, etc.

I like the one Ichor actually.  I've been seeing a lot of C'Thun decks all day and Ichor along w/ Bash or Win Axe is really nice for taking out the X/4 minions they run.

Thank you for this deck, Sottle.  It's been absolutely crushing it for me. I'm 7-1 so far with the only change being Harrison out for an Arcanite Reaper.  It's no Death's Bite, for sure, but it's been good to me in bridging the gap between Fiery War Axe and Gorehowl.

 

On the subject of Gorehowl, I would personally not play the deck without it.  That card has been my MVP in most games and feels like it is 100% needed.  The Black Knight has been good, and but not integral.

Is having Taunt the indicator of a good card? It's Cruel Taskmaster for 1 Mana in a lot of situations,

can snipe 2/1's, activator for Execute etc.

Thanks for the explanation.  My point was that, in a control/fatigue deck such as this, it would be beneficial to spawn taunt tokens and Blood to Ichor doesn't.

Looking at the curve, Elise is the only 4-drop. What's the rationale behind the fierce monkeys over bloodhoof braves?

Slam is not a standard format card, why is this deck in the standard section?

Slam is standard (I actually play Slam). There have been reports of bugs where standard cards can't be used in standard decks. That is probably your case.

Why bo acolytes in this deck when u want to draw into your monkey??? I review a couple of pro players' decks and they all run acolytes and doomsayers in their decks.

Monkey isn't your only win condition, so no need to aggressively cycle for it.

Yeah ive played some games with the deck and realized u dont need the acolytes at all specially in the mirror matchups or other control matchups like priest or nzoth paladin where we go to fatigue. I played against nzoth pally abd mirror and they both fatigued first than me and just ran out of threats. I didnt even had to play the monkey. Black knight have been amazing against shamans and paladins druids and even zoos(cuz of defender of argus) and and cthun decks( cuz of emperor veklor and bgh, well thats something almost noone expects in this meta which have been amazing too now that everyone is playing ragnaros again and double ragnaros in pally. Thanks again for the deck :)

Is adding one Sparring Partner and discarding one Ravaging Ghoul a viable choice(combo with The Black Knight)?

Yes it is, but if you face decks that play a lot of taunts, you should reconsider, since you will often use Black Knight on a different minion. 

 

Additionally, Sparring Partner doesn't have much use, besides the BK combo and Sylvanas combo.

Just curious... why does the deck run revenge?  Also what is a good substitute for revenge?

Revenge is great against flood decks as a board clear, and it can be used as an Execute enabler in control matchup. You can use Mind Control Tech and a second Slam.

      Hi,
      I've just finished normal with my main 890ilvl (54 points) prot tank and also with my 876ilvl (36 points) druid tank.
      My conclusion is the following:
      The protection warrior is taking way to high damage from almost all abilities except auto-attacks which are low anyway.
      Shield block doesn't work against any of the abilities in nighthold and doesn't help with any magical skills.
      Basically our block even with 2 set items, having aprox 65% crit block chance is useless in Nighthold.
      The fact that our main reduction ability except our 8k-ish armor is useless for all Nighthold bosses. Demo, LS, SW, SR are ok for stack abilities or strong abilities but they couldn't be frequent enough. The damage taken spikes are crazy...just crazy and I've kept IP 40-60% of the damage and decent 90% + bracket dps.
      Paladin tank and warrior tank used to be very similar in damage taken ( normal damage taken ), now paladin is taking 100 millions and warrior is taking 200-400 million on same boss. This is because their damage is percent damage reduction and that works for magical also, but our shield block is irrelevant. Also paladins block spells now.
      In regard to my 876ilvl druid, I've done Guldan solo tanking without any stress. I've done rest of bosses without a problem, only keeping 1-2 stack of ironfur up and using rest of my rage for the 30% reduction every 10 sec, and I won't even start with the amount of cds druids have. These runs showed me how warrior is 0 compared to paladin,druid and DK. 
      I would place warrior on last place under DK, as Shield Block is an irreleant ability in this raid. You can check logs and compare raids from EN and Nighthold. It seems that to be so-so with a warrior tank you would have to maximize versatility and ignore every other stat :|, maybe then you will start reducing some damage from this raid.
       
      I believe that even the first version of warrior tank from start of EN couldn't handle Nighthold as good as paladin,druid can now. They were just op at low level for being able to handle high mythic dungeons at low gear for stacking IP 2 million absorb, but they scaled bad compared to others and that IP would drop in 2 hits on Mythic EN content, making it so-so anywany.
       
      Post below if any ideas pop to mind related to the above problem. Thanks !
