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☺

      Dave Kosak is here in the latest Hearthside Chat video to talk about the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. He also revealed two Priest cards: the Loa of Death, Bwonsamdi, and his Spirit!
      If you haven't played Battle for Azeroth, the latest WoW expansion, then this video is going to be helpful in understanding the backstory of Rastakhan's Rumble:
      The two Priest cards revealed in the video synergise very well with each other:

      As Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden mentioned in their r/Hearthstone interview, Spirits are meant to be build-around cards and this is pretty apparent with Spirit of the Dead. Apart from the obvious synergy with Bwonsamdi, the Priest Spirit can work wonders in a Clone Priest deck along with Zerek's Cloning Gallery. Spirit of the Dead can also find a spot in other archetypes like Resurrect, Big and Deathrattle Priest. The card itself is quite slow and requires some setting-up, but it looks very versatile.

      Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death, can be used simiply to draw Spirit of the Dead, then you can kill him while the Spirit is up and shuffle him back to your deck. It's easy to see the Spirit work without Bwonsamdi, but the opposite - Bwonsamdi working without his Spirit - looks like a slim possibility. Given that all Class cards in this expansion are designed to work as a "team", we might see a card (apart from the Spirit) that can make Bwonsamdi more viable. Otherwise, the Hunter Quest never really caught on, so why would it work in a traditionally anti-aggro class like Priest?

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week and the rules are simple: both players get to have two turns, instead of one.
      This starts from the very beginning of the game, therefore giving a big advantage to Player 1. Don't be surprised if your opponent concedes when he/she finds out that he/she has to go second (or if you have to do it)!
      Doomsayer is a must-have on this Tavern Brawl, since it clears the board immediately. Flappy Bird is also a useful card and Aggro decks are generally favoured. OTK decks also can work great since you have two turns to set up your... one-turn kill. You can also experiment with Open the Waygate and Temporus; both cards work and they give you a third turn!

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.
