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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
