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☺

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
