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?

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.

      Blizzard's Lead Mission Designer, Dave Kosak, has released a video discussing how Missions will work in Knights of the Frozen Throne.
      Missions are the replacement for Adventures, which everyone will be able to attempt when the new set is released. The idea behind them is to be able to explain the lore behind the cards, without forcing people to do the content who are not interested in it.
      There is a lot of interesting information in the video, but the key takeaway is that there will be an alternate Paladin Hero, Arthas, awarded to anyone who can defeat the Lich King with all nine classes.
      At the end of the video, three more cards are revealed from the upcoming expansion:

      Bolvar is an interesting card in that it will be a 3/7 after it loses its own Divine Shield. This means that it will need to get very little value from its ability in order to be very large indeed. It does feel like a build-around card however, and it might be that Divine Shield Paladin is just not as powerful as current archetypes. There are already plenty of ways to build that style of deck, and none are seeing regular play. I am not sure that Bolvar, Fireblood improves the Divine Shield archetype enough to force it to the forefront.

      Light's Sorrow has some of the same issues that Bolvar has, although it needs to get very few activations over the course of its lifetime to be a playable weapon. I expect this to be tested heavily in the first few days of the new meta.

      Corpsetaker seems like a fun card. It should be easy enough to gain most of the keywords, which will make it a very difficult card to deal with. It should be noted that the keywords are only gained if those words are on the cards remaining in the deck. Depending on how easy it turns out to be to get every keyword onto the card, this could be a reasonable card in slower decks where the Taunt and Lifesteal are relevant.

      The twenty-third and twenty-fourth cards have been revealed. Both are Epic minions, one for Hunter and one for Druid.
      At seven Mana, Stitches Archer, or Abominable Bowman Archer has to compete with Volcanosaur for the slot. It also seems that Savannah Highmane does the same thing more reliably.

      (Source: Hearthpwn)
      That being said, there are plenty of Deathrattle options available for N'Zoth, the Corruptor to bring back in Hunter now, and if a slow enough deck can be made to work, this would be a great fit in such a deck.
      Fatespinner
      Fatespinner introduces a new mechanic, which should add an element of intrigue to the game. The lack of disguised information has been a complaint of many players since the dawn of Hearthstone. Fatespinner takes a first step into that world, and if successful as a mechanic, it should add a new layer of complexity and bluff to the game.

      As for the card itself, it has poor stats for its Mana cost, and seems to not have the greatest of effects. However, this is Druid we are talking about, and Druid having the ability to deal 3 damage to all minions, albeit slowly, should not be treated lightly. Sherazin, Corpse Flower was underrated by reviewers in the previous set, and is somewhat similar in that it was hard to assess how much value would be gained from its ability. I feel that this card might see play for the first Deathrattle ability, but more importantly, the very existence of a new secret mechanic should be good for the game as the design team explore it further.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer.

      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.

      Bearshark and Hadronox were just revealed!
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bearshark

      Houndmaster should probably be renamed to Bearsharkmaster because it curves out just perfectly into an Elusive minion that's going to be difficult to remove. Since hunters don't use spells to buff their own minions, Elusive isn't actually going to be a downside. This seems like it'll make for a solid addition to any hunter deck.
      Hadronox

      The current rendition of Ramp druid runs 5 to 6 Taunt minions, but plays very greedy with cutting long-time staples of the class such as Druid of the Claw. Could this fit the deck? I don't know; Hadronox requires you to have drawn your few Taunters and played them, something Ramp doesn't always get to do by nature. Ramping this minion is actually pretty bad because its Deathrattle simply won't trigger then. Let's see if another Taunt minion ends up being printed for druid; otherwise, I can't say this card will be popular.
