Fat deck, the enemies always acts against it like it would be a regular combo lock, they use all of their board clears and then nzoth does its job :)

Is Alex or Jaraxus necesary or can she be replaced by Rag? 

Lord Jaraxxus is just too powerfull, sometimes he acts like a win condition himself.

For example, against a control warrior, most of the times you will play jaraxxus as early as possible to pressure the warrior with the 6/6 minions from your hero power.

Against priest, if you play Jaraxxus early, with lightbomb gone, it is almost a guarranteed victory.

 

As for Alex, her purpose on the deck is to setup a 2-turn kill with your combo.

 

I think you could try to replace Alex with rag, but as for Lord Jarraxus i think he is just too good to be replaced efficiently.

What would you say about swapping doomsayer with Infested tauren? 
I enjoy playing this deck, but often you can't play N'zoth because you will get finished next turn. And it also Would be helpful in the early game because there is so many agro decks out there

Is anybody able to win with this deck against all of the C'thun decks in the meta? The slow pace and big late game plays have me dominating a few regular deck types but the lack of minions and board presence until then has me constantly getting OTK'ed by 18/18+ C'thuns way before that. Any tips?

I'm really fine against the control decks, but it's hard to win against aggro ones, especially the current aggro Shaman and Warrior. Maybe we should think of a replacement in order to better fight this part of the meta. For instance, in my opinion Brann is a little too situational. It's hard to play well. Probably we should replace it with something suitable to stop the aggro rush. Ideas?

Sen'jin ShieldmastaFen Creeper (because of curve), Cult Apothecary (if you face zoo a lot as well), Wild Pyromancer even.

Brann is actually pretty powerful against Aggro thanks to 4 toughness and doubling up on Earthen Ring Farseer, Refreshment Vendor and Defender of Argus.

Weakest link of the list is IMO Corrupted Healbot. I second the 5 mana taunts like Fen Creeper or the new Annoy-o-Tron, but Cult Apothecary(not sorcerer) is pretty narrow.

Hello.I want to say the deck is very well build.However i have one suggestion.Would it be possible against aggro to change some cards like Mountain giant Alex and Corrupted healbot?I think these cards are bit slow vs aggro.what do you think and what cards do you think they are the best?

Alexstraza and Molten Giant indeed are pretty niche cards. Take a look on some options we've discussed above in that thread.

Honorable mention to Stampening Kodo that (surprisingly for me) is not in. It's a solid curve option that can be pretty potent against offensive decks.

What about adding a Big Game Hunter ? Just to have extra removal against C'thun decks.Or is it too much ?What would you replace for BGH?

Molten Giant or Sunfury Protector (it's not a common inclusion, actually, and I often find it out of pace myself). You can also consider Abusive sergeant to complement the hunt and make Leeroy combo slightly more powerful.

However against control matchups certain cards like Alexstraza can shine. Keep that in mind.

Doesn't change much - he is still not exactly what you want against Aggro. I can't recall myself t4-ing him often, he is tricky to use efficiently in general.

This deck is so much fun. I've never had more fun and success with a deck before. I cannot find anything wrong with it.

Hey this deck is awsome! 1 suggestion who is missing the leeeoy jenkings can use rockless rocketer instead...it is pretty much the same, but you need emperor to get the combo for 18 dmg. Leeroy gives you 20 with poweroverwhelming and can be used for instant 10 dmg with faceless in 10 turn(due to rockless rocketer 6 mana cost). This is the advantage, however i managed to get the combo with rockless and didnt miss the 2 HP damage from it☺

      Blizzard's Lead Mission Designer, Dave Kosak, has released a video discussing how Missions will work in Knights of the Frozen Throne.
      Missions are the replacement for Adventures, which everyone will be able to attempt when the new set is released. The idea behind them is to be able to explain the lore behind the cards, without forcing people to do the content who are not interested in it.
      There is a lot of interesting information in the video, but the key takeaway is that there will be an alternate Paladin Hero, Arthas, awarded to anyone who can defeat the Lich King with all nine classes.
      At the end of the video, three more cards are revealed from the upcoming expansion:

      Bolvar is an interesting card in that it will be a 3/7 after it loses its own Divine Shield. This means that it will need to get very little value from its ability in order to be very large indeed. It does feel like a build-around card however, and it might be that Divine Shield Paladin is just not as powerful as current archetypes. There are already plenty of ways to build that style of deck, and none are seeing regular play. I am not sure that Bolvar, Fireblood improves the Divine Shield archetype enough to force it to the forefront.

      Light's Sorrow has some of the same issues that Bolvar has, although it needs to get very few activations over the course of its lifetime to be a playable weapon. I expect this to be tested heavily in the first few days of the new meta.

      Corpsetaker seems like a fun card. It should be easy enough to gain most of the keywords, which will make it a very difficult card to deal with. It should be noted that the keywords are only gained if those words are on the cards remaining in the deck. Depending on how easy it turns out to be to get every keyword onto the card, this could be a reasonable card in slower decks where the Taunt and Lifesteal are relevant.

      The twenty-third and twenty-fourth cards have been revealed. Both are Epic minions, one for Hunter and one for Druid.
      At seven Mana, Stitches Archer, or Abominable Bowman Archer has to compete with Volcanosaur for the slot. It also seems that Savannah Highmane does the same thing more reliably.

      (Source: Hearthpwn)
      That being said, there are plenty of Deathrattle options available for N'Zoth, the Corruptor to bring back in Hunter now, and if a slow enough deck can be made to work, this would be a great fit in such a deck.
      Fatespinner
      Fatespinner introduces a new mechanic, which should add an element of intrigue to the game. The lack of disguised information has been a complaint of many players since the dawn of Hearthstone. Fatespinner takes a first step into that world, and if successful as a mechanic, it should add a new layer of complexity and bluff to the game.

      As for the card itself, it has poor stats for its Mana cost, and seems to not have the greatest of effects. However, this is Druid we are talking about, and Druid having the ability to deal 3 damage to all minions, albeit slowly, should not be treated lightly. Sherazin, Corpse Flower was underrated by reviewers in the previous set, and is somewhat similar in that it was hard to assess how much value would be gained from its ability. I feel that this card might see play for the first Deathrattle ability, but more importantly, the very existence of a new secret mechanic should be good for the game as the design team explore it further.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.

      Bearshark and Hadronox were just revealed!
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bearshark

      Houndmaster should probably be renamed to Bearsharkmaster because it curves out just perfectly into an Elusive minion that's going to be difficult to remove. Since hunters don't use spells to buff their own minions, Elusive isn't actually going to be a downside. This seems like it'll make for a solid addition to any hunter deck.
      Hadronox

      The current rendition of Ramp druid runs 5 to 6 Taunt minions, but plays very greedy with cutting long-time staples of the class such as Druid of the Claw. Could this fit the deck? I don't know; Hadronox requires you to have drawn your few Taunters and played them, something Ramp doesn't always get to do by nature. Ramping this minion is actually pretty bad because its Deathrattle simply won't trigger then. Let's see if another Taunt minion ends up being printed for druid; otherwise, I can't say this card will be popular.
