2 questions:

1) Is this better than stock Tempo Warrior lists?

2)On a scale from 1 to 10, how crucial Malkorok is? I'm not in the market for a legendary that is going to kill me with Cursed Blade.

IMO Malkorok is not core to this deck. I tried Sylvanas, Arathi Weaponsmith, Inner rage instead in a slight variation of this deck around rank 2-3 and they all worked very good. 

You can also try one of the bigger dragons like Nefarian/Onyxia or a tech card like Harrison.  Let me know how it works.

I think this plays out much more aggressive than the standard tempo list. So, it may come down to preference, but I think standard tempo might be slightly more consistent over large number of gsmes, given there is no synergy dependency (you don't end up with dead cards with no dragons to activate them).

I disagree.

Nefarian is the closest accesible option, because you really need that top end curve to be there and be strong. Deck doesn't run a lot of consistency draw engines, so you have to rely on redundancy to do work.

The other way is to reduce the curve and play it more aggressively, which is what I did, and it worked quite well for me. If you want to keep curve, I would rather use Chromaggus, mainly because my most common matchup is Shaman, and the spells would mostly have bad value.

so far the deck is amazing but since this is my first ever dragon deck am kinda clueless ...mulligans are kinda confusing to me keep the dragons or start out like a regular control warrior and when i have synergy with my dragons again am kinda confused what to play but one thing i know is that this deck is tempo so playing minions on curve is needed..so far am going like 3-6 but am just getting used to the deck so thank you for the deck and the guide sottle !!

Mulligans are tricky but figurable, get a curve and some beatdowns going. It's ok to keep an expensive dragon when you have no payoff cards with it in starting hand, but putting yourself at a disadvantage sucks. Same way, when you have dudes but no dragons with them just ship everything you don't like and hope for best.

i tried some few changes to the deck and so far am going 15-4 ladder/casual combined 

since the meta is kinda slow or at least what i have encountered so far ... 

-1 finley

-2 ravaging ghoul 

+1 fierce monkey

+2 bloodhoof brave 

the taunts are amazing and lots of 2/3 attacks makes the priest kinda lost what to choose comes the mid game with both your korron's and azure's ..and then the huge tempo swings and late game threats in the form of malkorok rag and gromm ..if anybody would like to try it and tell me what they think about the changes please be my guest :)

I am running a very similar deck to this right now, although I don't have Ragnaros or Grom. So instead I am using Nefarian for the late game. and I removed 1 frothing and put in 2 Blackwing Techs. I went from rank 20 to rank 15 without losing a game and now am on another win streak.

I would love to be able to get Grom or Hellscream, but the fates have not been kind to me so far. Until then, I think there are several variations that work great for this deck.

Hope they don't draw into Highmanes and Call of the broken while you draw perfectly.  

Otherwise hunters are a real bad matchup for most warrior decks currently.

Yeah, Hunters just beat up on Warriors, it's just the natural order of things in Hearthstone :P

You need to go really hard for Fiery War Axe, if you get the Axe you can make things happen from there. I've had most success playing the matchup very aggressive and trying to put the pressure back on them, they don't play the greatest removal so you can often push damage to them and force them to trade minions, if you try and play too passively they'll over run you with Highmanes and Call of the Wild eventually.

I am actually having trouble with the new breed of Beast Druid, particularly when they buff Stranglethorn Tiger to 7/7 and copy it with that new 5/5's battlecry. I pretty much have to deal with 4 stealthed 7/7's in every one of these matchups. Should I consider adding Brawl to the deck if I encounter this often?

Lol I'm on a win streak right now from 20-14 and I didn't even notice that I was in wild mode and not standard so I'm just gonna keep going till I go on a loss streak

You could, but you have to remember that the card will quite often sit as a dead card in many matchups due to the nature of board control with the deck.

It's an incredibly strong deck, regardless of the ladder! :p

Is there anywhere I can put slyvanus

Sylvanas Windrunner might be a little slower than what this deck is intending but if you are wanting to run her you could cut a copy of Ravaging Ghoul if the presence of Aggro is lower or Grommash Hellscream since this version of the deck doesn't have a lot of consistent activators for him.

      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: 2 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.
    • By Zadina
      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!
