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.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
