Really like this deck, and doing pretty well with it.

 

Only trouble is that a bad hand in first 1-2 moves, which happens way more than I expected, is an almost certain loss.

Very very weak deck. Went 5-23 and gave up on it. Extremely depending on good card draw, but even then the damage output is too low. Gets your opponent easily to 10 health, but then you run out of cards and out of steam.

Since I don't have TBK,kragg or greenskin I decided to just make a facier version of the deck which seems to be working fine. If anyone is interested in trying it out, the list is as follows:

N'zoth's first mate x2

execute 

finley

upgrade(I think 2 is excessive, especially with 2 cultists already in the deck)

southsea deckhand x2

war axe x2

heroic strike

loot hoarder x2

bloodsail raider x2

bloodsail cultist x2

wolfrider x2

argent horserider x2

spellbreaker

kor'kron elite x2

mortal strike

arathi weaponsmith

dread corsair x2

arcanite reaper x2

leeroy

The deck suffers from card draw like all face decks do, but I think it's very fun to play and seems to be more than good enough to hit legend(currently rank 3 and only lost 3 games since rank 6).

Whats the ranking for Sir Finley hero power choices?

 

I'm guessing we're hoping for Warlock. Then druid. Then hunter. Then mage.

This is aggro with a decent curve, so you don't really need warlock's hero power. Hunter > Mage (allows you to deal damage to more targets if you have a weapon equipped) > Druid > Warlock/Rogue > the rest

      This week's episode features a fresh take on a popular deck, courtesy of Casie.
      Can you guess the next move?
      Situation #22: Let's Even the Odds
      Picking up where we left off last week, we find ourselves in the middle of an odd/even matchup between Warlock and Shaman. I picked this situation partially because it was an interesting spot with many options available to us, and also because its a ladder situation I highly doubt any of my readers have encountered before:

      Commenters quickly identified several key factors about this matchup, namely that Defile and Hellfire are off the table for our opponent and that the only "board clear" available for our opponent is Despicable Dreadlord. Our opponent is more likely to have single target removal (such as Voodoo Doll) or is looking to play a demon-related 5 drop next turn in Skull of the Man'ari, Possessed Lackey, or Doomguard.
      Bozonik summed up this situation excellently in his comment from last week's thread:
      There seemed to be a consensus among commenters that "Option 1", Hero Power + Sea Giant was the line here. It puts a big nasty minion on the board, applying pressure and forcing our opponent to have Voodoo Doll. In the heat of the moment I went with "Option 2", the full clear, but after looking back on things and reading over the comments I believe Hero Power + Giant was the correct line. Despicable Dreadlord is really the only card which gives us serious trouble next turn (since our opponent won't be able to play Possessed Lackey and kill it) and this line plays around Dreadlord while applying just as much pressure as the other options.
      I was secretly hoping that the tap + Giant wasn't the correct line here (because its the most obvious one), but the obvious solution is often the correct one. If you're ever in a situation such as this where you have no idea what your opponent is up to, it's probably best to go for the "obvious" line and not get cute.
      Situation #23: Broken Mirrors
      Today's deck comes courtesy of Kevin "Casie" Eberlein, who cut the dragon package from Mind Blast Priest to turn the deck into something with much more of a combo/aggro feel to it. Many pros are pegging Mind Blast Priest to be the next "best deck in the meta" after the nerfs drop, and Casie's list has a serious advantage in the mirror match:
      Though I didn't find nearly as much success with the deck as Casie did, it did provide me with plenty of interesting situations for What's the Move! Here's the one I ended up choosing for this week's episode:

      It's turn 2, we're on The Coin, and our ladder opponent just played a Wild Pyromancer. For the purposes of this exercise, we can say that we're 100% confident our opponent is on Mind Blast Priest. However, this isn't a mirror match at all. We have Prophet Velen, Holy Smite, two copies of Holy Fire (most Mind Blast Priests run just one), and Lifedrinker in our deck, which gives us a huge advantage in late-game Anduin vs Anduin races. Knowing that we have an advantage in the late game should color our decision heavily on turn two, where have a surprising number of options available to us.
      So, what's the move?
