I've been running a similar deck for the last few weeks, and its working beautifully. I dont use the doomcallers, and a few other minor tweaks. You usually get a very smooth mana curve, with a solid minion available almost every turn, and good responses for whatever they may play.

Any replacements for Vek'lor?

Twin Emperor Vek'lor is a reason why C'thun decks are good. He is arguably the second most powerful card in the deck, and it might not even be worth it to play the deck without him. The swaps would be Doomcaller against control, Sen'jin Shieldmasta against aggro, Shadow Word: Death or Entomb against midrangey decks.

I've got to say i didn't find much use out of the Doomsayer's but perhaps i'm not coming up against enough excessively spammy decks. Surprisingly only had a couple of Zoo matchups to test it in. All in all this is working fairly well. Subbed the Doomsayers out for Museum curators. Especially with the hand synergy they can be utilised with Brann Bronzebeard. Whilst there's better combo's to use him with. Dropping a curator the next turn if you can get away with it is pretty strong too.

this deck gets torn apart by deathrattle decks

The main issue when playing against deathrattle decks is timing and playing around Sylvanas Windrunner. If you face a lot of N'Zoth decks, consider adding a second Entomb in place of Shadow Word: PainShadow Word: Death or Doomsayer, depending on your other matchups.

Worth removing Cabal for Entomb?

Probably worth removing Cabal for almost anything, there's a serious lack of good targets for it in the present meta.

Exactly what I was thinking.

@Blainie If you don't encounter enough decks that have good targets for Cabal Shadow Priest, like dragon warrior, then sure. In the end it's just a tech card.

I'm not derailing I swear!

Are you saying it is good vs. DW or bad? I can't think of any card that you can grab from Dragon Warrior, since they all get buffed above 2

I meant it is a very bad deck to encounter with 2 Cabal Shadow Priests. The only cards you can steal are SlimeFrothing Berserker (sometimes) and Sir Finley Mrrgglton, which is not enough, as only Frothing Berserker has extra value. Additionally, the pressure from dragon warrior is often so high (and the power of priests is so low) that you need to use hero power every turn to stay alive, which makes Cabal Shadow Priest a low value card that is often too slow.
It's fine to run Cabal Shadow Priest against sSlower decks that have low amount of targets, like Control Warrior, since you are not under constant pressure and you often get extra value, such as card draw from Acolyte of Pain or armor from Armorsmith.

Except that they don't run Armorsmith nowadays. For a C'Thun deck it's probably good to steal Acolyte of Pain, if it were a pure Control deck that might be more sketchy (against Control Warrior anyway). Brann Bronzebeard has all but disappeared from the meta, the only really high-value target nowadays is Flamewaker. I suppose Kindly Grandmother is decent too. Taking something low-impact like a Totem or Argent Squire, even an Argent Horserider (if you can find one that still has Divine Shield) just seems too slow nowadays. Well, the entire Priest class seems too slow, so, whatever.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
