Would it be smart to craft the remaining cards for 1420 dust, or should I save the dust for something more competitive? (I only have midrange shaman and pirate warrior for standard at the moment). A reply would be appreciated :3

Depends on your personal priorities. Deck is fun and playable but not exactly your consistent top rank material.

Thanks for the reply. I'll save the dust for now, but I'll craft it later for sure.

I love this deck. It has been a lot of fun. I have only played about 10 games, but I have won 8 of them. Also it has beaten plenty of "Top" decks, maybe not top players, but top decks, yes.

It's too low impact. Also eats any removal your opponent has because you're creature light.

I've heard Stampeding Kodo is pretty good these days...

Why isn't Noxious at all credited by the "author"?

Savjz is credited as the author. Savjz played a way different style of yogg-and-load than Noxious, and that deck was used for creation of this deck.

I have a Malygos laying around. What would happen if I would add him to this deck? Would it work? What card should I cut for him? Suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

This deck will easily use up 12 or so spells, so if I wanted to throw 1 copy of arcane golem in there as just a last ditch effort or as one last try at stalling till turn 9/10, which would be the best thing to cut/bring down to one?

Arcane Golem isn't good enough to be included. You can't play him in the early game as it would give your opponent a mana crystal, and in the end game one extra stat doesn't really make a difference. Do not include it.

judging from the contest I think he was talking about Arcane Giant, but it's only speculation.

I had high hopes for Arcane Giant, but a closer looks told me that deploying 7 spells before turn 5 is a really formidable task, and even then he'd be doing a Frostwolf Warlord impression. Later in the game an 8/8 can't be exactly super relevant either. Keeping more consistency on your card draw/removal or reliable beats seems like a better idea.

Yes sorry, my brain must have had a massive fart. I did mean Giant.

I see. thank you for your input. I have tried it a few times and i do agree with you. Some games you'll get him out super early, but, as you said, is not consistent enough.

      Blizzard have announced that the next Hearthstone year will be called The Year of the Mammoth. Six cards from the Classic set will be moved to a new Hall of Fame set, which can only be played in Wild.
      The announcement explains that the new Hall of Fame set will include cards that are currently in the Reward set, but the big news here is the six cards that will be leaving Standard. You can see Blizzard's reasons on the link above, but I've given a few notes in this article. Those cards are shown below.
      As well as the removed cards, there will be no adventures in 2017. Instead we will be given three full expansions that will be accompanied by a single-player mission, which will be used to enhance flavour, and offer challenges. This sounds like it will be along the lines of an adventure, but optional. I feel this is a great change, as it hurts nobody.

      Azure Drake is simply in too many decks. It is a hard card to nerf without making it weak, but it is pretty much as powerful as a 5-drop can be. Removing this to free up other 5-drops makes sense.

      The reasoning for Sylvanas is similar. Blizzard's words make a lot of sense on this one, and also give an insight into the future:
      Blizzard
      Similar to Azure Drake, it’s hard to see a card at the six mana cost out-value Sylvanas. In addition, Sylvanas has the most powerful Deathrattle effect in the game—as a comparison, the Priest card Mind Control costs 10 mana. We have exciting Deathrattle build-arounds coming soon, and in combination with Sylvanas, they would be too powerful for Standard. This seems to imply that N'Zoth, the Corruptor will be making a big comeback soon!

      I suspect a lot of people will be glad to see the back of Ragnaros. The Random element was often a contentious issue.

      The removal of Power Overwhelming is a bit of a surprise, but it seems that it has mainly been nerfed because of its strength in combinaton with cards like Leeroy Jenkins and Faceless Manipulator. I would also assume that Warlock is going to be getting some fun new toys to replace it.

      Ice Lance has been removed to remove Freeze Mage and allow new strategies to develop. It is also interesting that Blizzard mention it will allow them to make cards that copy cards. That could also apply to Power Overwhelming, so I would expect something along those lines to be in the next set.

      Conceal leaving will make sense to everyone. It allows Gadgetzan Auctioneer to survive as an interesting card, and removes the annoyance of not being able to interact with your opponent.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is called Blood Magic. It is the 88th Tavern Brawl.
      Blood Magic has a simple enough concept, which is that all spells cost Health instead of Mana. This could lead to an interesting metagame where healing is premium, and expensive burn spells are used to finish your opponent. Violet Illusionist is a key card in this Brawl, it allows the burn finish to only kill your opponent and not yourself. I expect to see it a lot over the coming days. 
      This is the third constructed Brawl in a row. It is an interesting Brawl to me, as I have felt that Blizzard have been trying to push this mechanic slowly on us over the last few expansions, but are terrified of it. In other card games, paying Health for cards has often been a broken mechanic, and I feel this might be a test to see how far they can push it.
      As always, feel free to leave your own lists in the comments.

      Blizzard have ended speculation as to the fate of Small-Time Buccaneer by announcing nerfs that will be active with Update 7.1. The ladder system will also see a small change.
      The changes were outlined by Blizzard in a Reddit post, and they should shift the metagame significantly.
      The big, although expected, news is that Small-Time Buccaneer will be nerfed to become a 1/1 rather than a 1/2. This puts it into turn 2 ping range and should stop the card getting out of control. It remains to be seen if it will still be playable considering it will still fetch patches, and still trade one Mana for two Mana in a lot of early game situations.
      Spirit Claws also sees a change, and although expected by many, was a minor surprise to me as Blizzard generally dislike messing with cards from adventures. The cost of the card has been raised from 1 Mana to 2 Mana. This might seem like a minor change, but the implications are huge. It will be very awkward in the early game with Bloodmage Thalnos and Wrath of Air Totem, and it will almost certainly see far less play after the update. 
      The ladder changes feel like Blizzard dipping their toe in the water, rather than a full on change. There will now be a series of Ranked Play floors, which are ranks that you can't de-rank below within a season. Those ranks are 5,10, and 15. This should help a little with ladder anxiety for many people.
      No date has been confirmed for the patch yet, but it seems likely that it will not be before the APAC Playoffs which end on February 25.
      Overall I feel that the changes are good. There will be chance for more sweeping changes when the new expansion hits later in the year, but these should tide us over in the meantime. Reno Jackson decks will be the obvious beneficiaries of the changes, but this means that Jade decks will be stronger. It will be fun to see where the meta settles down.
