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.

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.

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.

 

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.

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.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.
