Do you guys have a minion i can swap Black Knight out with?

No, I don't see any card with the effect of BK, but i'm running Cenarius, nice board and a choose one, with Fandral is a huuge boost on the board.

Hey Sottle, Since I don't have alot of the cards in the deck, I was wondering if this would suffice as a sort of a budget version:

 

2x Innervate

2x Wild growth

2x Wrath

2x Beckoner of evil

2x Darnassus aspirant

2x Feral rage

2x Twilight Elder

2x Swipe

2x C'thun's chosen

1x Fandral

1x Savage combatant

1x Spell Breaker

2x Azure drake

2x Druid of the claw

2x Dark Arakkoa

1x Emperor Thaurissan

1x Doom Caller

1x C'thun

 

I know it's not optimized in any way, shape or form, but I have like 3000 dust to craft some cards (I just don't want to spend everything on one deck crafting all the legendaries in the list). Could you give a recommendation on what cards should be swapped out for this deck to make it slightly more competitive? Or any cards that are just plain bad/ don't work?

Any replacement for Brann?

 

Not really, Brann is super good in this deck. If you're not running Brann you have to run a LOT more Cultists to get consistent and then the deck just gets really weak overall.

It's a great deck, I used to play combo druid before the nerfs and this will replace it perfectly.

I replaced some cards thought due to missing legendaries and preference:

Fandral =>C'thun's Chosen

The Black Knight => Sylvanas

Darnasus Aspirant => Big game hunter

So I have two questions

1) is black knight crucial in this deck?

2) and sorry for the stupid question, but how do know that a deck can reach legend??(just curious )

Black Knight is a tech card, though a very powerful now, especially because of Twin Emperor. It can definitely be replaced by another card, though the deck will lose a strong answer to enemy taunt minions.

You can "guess" reachable rank by win rates on legend rank or ranks near to it.

Why can't you use it in Standard?

because it greys out my deck. and when I click on it it says "that deck is only for wild games"

How should I use Mire Keeper? Ramp on turn 4? Even if I don't have 6 drop? Should I Innervate him on turn 2? When choose 2/2 slime?

It is most probably a bug. A few other users of this forum said the same thing, even when I am able to play with those cards. I guess you will just have to wait for patch.

Generally yes, it is very possible that you will draw a big card in the next 2 turns anyway. If not you will still be able to play 2 minions at once. 

You should choose slime when you are getting close to 10 mana, like turn 6 onwards.

There's also matchup concerns, and board state concerns. 

 

It sounds simplistic and reductive, but just look at the board state, think about what they might do next turn and think "what does a 2/2 do for me here"

If I don't have Fandral, can I still playing this deck? I can have all others but only without Fandral, but as Fandral can synergy with lots of choose one card, so, can I still continue this deck without him?

Yes, but the deck will lose some power. A second Ancient of War or second Darnassus Aspirant can be used instead, though I recommend you to save some dust for him as he is one of the strongest cards in this expansion imo.

I was on a long win streak with this deck, until I started losing. Badly. Could it be due to the lack of Staghelm. If so, should I craft it. Also, I feel like the deck needs a bit more late game. Would Ragnaros fit?

Recreated same exact deck, works now. Thanks for pointing out the obvious, it was a bug, for some reason that never crossed my mind :) ive been dominating early ranks in wild with it, cant wait to try it out in standard. Only change I made is I subbed black knight for sunwalker. is there a better sub for black knight? maybe Skeram cultist??

I too won every game and loved this deck at first (maybe because it was at lower ranks :D ) but now I see that it definetly has weaknesses.

Druid is not a control heavy class like Warrior and Priest, the hard removals are worse, Mulch versus Shield Slam or Shadow Word:Death and board clears are subpar so you can't include them in the deck and be effective.

Before, we had force of nature and savage roar to seal the game after we establish board control but now we are forced to play the value game.

Anyway, Ragnaros is a great late game pick, I would also recommend Justicar; possible replacements are Living Roots, Darnassus Aspirant, Klaxi Amber-Weaver.

      Mage gets another useful Secret in Kobolds & Catacombs.
      ShtanUdachi revealed this spell card on his YouTube channel. It's a 3 mana rare Secret that reads: "After your opponent plays a minion, deal 6 damage to it. Deal all remaining damage to your opponent". The card's name hasn't been officially confirmed, but it should be Explosive (or Fire) Rune(s).
      The video is in Russian, with English subtitles available.
      This is a great card and fits perfectly into Secret Mage or any aggressive Mage deck. Essentially, it's a cheaper Fireball, that can potentially splits its damage to the enemy hero too! The only question that is raised is how this secret is going to work with minions with Divine Shield. Lastly, Explosive Rune(s) can benefit from Spell Power.
      Let us know what you think about the newest addition to Mage's arsenal of powerful spells. Final versions of all cards will be posted in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.

      The Paladin Spellstone has been revealed and we finally know almost everything about it.
      After the Mage Spellstone, it was time for the Paladin Spellstone to be revealed by Korean streamer sung0, who was joined by RenieHouR. The translated name of the card should be Lesser Pearl Spellstone, but it hasn't been officially confirmed.

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      Another translation of this card reads "Spirit" instead of "minion". It might be the case that the summoned token is an Elemental. This would be interesting since Paladin will get Benevolent Djinn in Kobolds & Catacombs, which is an Elemental that also has healing synergy. The "Restore 3 health" part is not clear, as well: it probably means to both your hero and your minions, but it should still be clarified.
      The streamers weren't provided with the upgrades of the Spellstone, so again this is a mystery. There are two cases: a) it's either get one, two, three minions or b) the stats of said minion get upgraded. The former seems more likely.
      There's still not enough information to properly review this card. Keep checking this thread for updates and we'll be sure to have the final details in our Kobolds and Catacombs hub as well.

      UPDATE
      According to French site JudgeHype, it looks like the token will get +2/+2 stats when the Spellstone is upgraded. So, the second stage is "Summon a 4/4 Spirit with Taunt" and the last stage is "Summon a 6/6 Spirit with Taunt". The card does indeed state "Spirit", instead of minion, but it turns out the Spirit is NOT an Elemental. The name of the card is almost certainly Lesser Pearl Spellstone, with an official confirmation on it still pending.
      Now, the only unanswered question if the "Restore 3 health" part applies to both hero/face and minions. On its own, the Lesser Pearl Spellstone is a poor card since it basically summons a Frostwolf Grunt. The upgraded versions look much better, but that will depend on whether Healadin will become a viable deck or not.

      Dave Kosak is here with a new Hearthside Chat to talk about Dungeon Runs. He also showcased a legendary card from the new expansion!
      We've already talked about Dungeon Runs, one of the new features that Kobolds & Catacombs will bring. Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak explains in this latest Hearthside Chat the design process behind Dungeon Runs.
      Dave presented some unique elements only present in Dungeon Runs. For example, there is a card you can pick called Cloak of Invisibility, which has a Passive effect of giving your minions permanent Stealth.
      He also gave some insight on the encounters. Some Dungeon Runs can have thematic encounters, like there's a band of Troggs or Trolls you will have to beat. As far as the Trolls are concerned, Battlecrier Jin'zo has a passive effect that is similar to Brann Bronzebeard, which you and him can both benefit from! Similarly, Spiritspeaker Azun's passive works like Baron Rivendare for both parties, while Voodoomaster Vex combines both of these passive effects!
      The narrator, that will be guiding you through your Dungeon Run, is King Togwaggle - the king of the Kobolds himself! He is also going to be an actual card available in the next expansion:

      Images from Hearthpwn
      Here's the official blog post with everything you need to know about Dungeon Runs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What’s a Dungeon Run?
      Dungeon Run is a new insanely fun, single-player “rogue-like” mode where you’ll face deadly encounters and collect incredible Treasures to build a deck worthy of a hero!
      When your Dungeon Run starts, you’ll choose a Hero and receive a starting deck consisting of 10 cards. You’ll use it to overcome eight encounters of increasing difficulty (chosen randomly from a huge pool of 48 possible encounters!) to clear the run.

      That initial deck might be enough to help you squeak by your first opponent, but you’ll need to get stronger if you hope to clear the whole run. Each time you defeat a Dungeon Run encounter, you’ll be given an opportunity to “level up” your Dungeon Run deck with themed sets of three cards appropriate to your class. Occasionally, you’ll also be able to pick from a selection of three incredibly powerful Treasure cards—non-collectible cards and abilities made just for this mode that are too blatantly overpowered to see normal play.
      You’ll need all that power—as well as your wits—because these encounters can be fiendishly difficult. Victory is not assured, and each encounter has its own unique perils. If one of them gets the better of you, defeat is permanent, so you’ll have to start a different run with a whole new deck!
      If you manage to complete a full Dungeon Run with each of the nine Classes—no mean feat!—you’ll add the Candle King card back to your collection.

      Mage's Spellstone card for hints at a potential Elemental theme for the class in the upcoming set.
      Mage's Spellstone was revealed today by Chinese Hearthstone streamer LvGe, hinting at a potential Elemental theme for the Mage class in K&C:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      The upgraded versions of Ruby Spellstone will provide an additional random Mage Spell for every two Elementals you can play while this card is in your hand, meaning that this card is capable of becoming a two mana Cabalist's Tome! The lesser version of this spell isn't very enticing, but both of the upgraded versions of Ruby Spellstone seem like quite the deal. Unfortunately, the requirement to upgrade Ruby Spellstone is quite prohibitive and will likely hold this card back from seeing widespread play on the ladder.
      Let us know what you think about Ruby Spellstone in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.
