Hey.. Nice deck

 

Where it says card swap at the bottom.. what cards do you swap with to make the deck still work..

You swap them in for other tech cards. In the current build you swap them for Revenges.

I dont have ironforge portals atm what can be a replacement for that? thanks!

You have a lot of possibilities, but most of them are tech card. The Black KnightBaron GeddonBig Game HunterHarrison Jones/Acidic Swamp Ooze, or you can play late-game win conditions, such as Ragnaros the Firelord or Ysera. You can also try Alexstrasza. She used to be played in the older versions of fatigue warrior.

 Bloodhoof Brave is a fine placeholder option if you are not as rich as @positiv2. It fills the same role portal does, buying you additional time during early/midgame, albeit not as effective as Ironforge Portal itself. I believe the creature is relatively well positioned ATM.

Yes, it doesn't have a lot of synergy with the rest of the deck, but it is the best Taunt minion in the market. It doesn't have to be "incredibly important piece of gameplan" when "nah, it's fine" will do.

You got videos you going from base to legendary with this? Been trying for two days with this deck and I have won one in maybe one out of six matches with it. I love the concept of this deck but something I am doing wrong or it isn't legendary capable.

From what I've played with this deck I have had pretty good success. You say you won 1 out of 6. What were you facing? This deck is a reactive deck and the key to success with it is knowing when to react.

I think I was trying to be too aggressive with my control. Now that I pick and choose a little more conservatively it plays a lot better.

Nvm, yeah this deck is sub par when facing any of the current aggro decks. I have about 30 matches with it and 7 wins.  It is way overwhelmed against all the common aggro decks in the lower ranks. Aggro Shaman is the worst it eats my lunch 100% of the time no matter how I play this deck.

If you want to continue to try, you're welcome to make a thread in the Constructed section showing us some gameplay of a match that you felt you simply couldn't win. I and the other mods would be more than happy to try help. 

If you want to simply move on from the deck, that's also fine!

Ah. I'm not actually sure. Maybe there is an app for it? >.<

If not, I'm not sure how to help without seeing you play the deck.

Actually, Aggro decks should be your lunch. Control Warrior basically rose to prominence on the back of its decent Shaman, and occasionally Warlock matchups. You are also technically favored against Tempo Mage, Dragon Warrior and other random stuff.

If you can't give us replays of your games, try analyzing them on your own. Just go through the game after its done and try to think out where it went south. 

If it comes down to "I wasn't able to beat Tunnel Trogg + Totem Golem", or "Never Lucky BabyRage.situation",  don't get discouraged because it's almost unbeatable anyways. Don't get discouraged is the most important part.

One real piece of advice that I can give if you struggle against Aggro field is to mulligan harder, as ridiculous as it sounds. Just ship everything that doesn't look like Fiery War Axe or Blood To Ichor. Everything. There is a lot of high-pressure openers that snowball harder than many decks can take, and specifically Control Warrior doesn't have much options to interact that early outside of these two brilliant cards. Wild Pyromancer + Commanding Shout shells like Worgen, C'thun and Patron can be softer to their openers because they have powerful clear in the form of namesake cards, but you are wielding a true masterpiece of old and thus have less safety going into your early game.

In the midgame, be mindful of your card draw management, especially Acolyte of Pain usage, because running out of gas is a real thing. A cornerstone problem of Control Warrior since Day 1. 

It may also benefit if you work out a plan on how are you going to beat a certain matchup before the game actually starts, you know, in a bigger picture, strategically. Because any Control is a strategic deck, first and foremost. Have plan, will travel.

This is actually a fair point. If you're in that situation where you simply feel that you can't win no matter what, making those extreme decisions can start having a positive effect for you. Take the chance that you're facing aggro. 

You have far more chance of beating a control deck with a hand to handle aggro, rather than the other way round.

I am just cutting my losses on this deck honestly. I feel it is trash and I have better luck with much cheaper decks. It may work at higher levels but climbing with this thing is painful. There is not near enough removal to match any decent aggro deck no matter what anyone says here. I spent all day testing this with a friend against typical Aggro decks, totem shammies and tempo mage stuff you see at lower ranks and it just is not reliable.Maybe 50% at best, more like 40% W/L ratio with it. I am relatively new to hearthstone but I can't win with it which means something to me. I can use the rogue deck with the basic earned cards and get to 15+ with it but I can't get past 18 with this deck. Kind of ticks me off as I went and spent money to get the cards I needed just to be ultimately disappointed. I Jean for what I spent I could have easily got back into playing magic competitively lol.

Gonna try another deck I guess and cut my losses. Tried the tips and nothing helped.

Fair enough. Generally laddering as a VERY heavy control deck is tough. I used to do it and was miserable playing, honestly. I normally aggro to rank 5 and then swap to a mid deck to finish the climb.

How good is Revenge? I only have the first wing of BRM so are there any good replacements for it?

Revenge is quite good against zoo and other aggro decks, but it is replaceable. You can play Baron GeddonAlexstraszaYsera, or almost any tech card, such as Harrison Jones or Mind Control Tech.

I've played this deck a lot on ladder and i have cut 1x Revenge for Baron Geddon and it works like a charm.

As for the second one he has to replace i think he needs to add a 1 damage aoe, instead of heavy late game cards. I would go for 1x Whirlwind. The control decks on ladder are nowhere to be found (except for a murloc paladin last night who made me loose 30 minutes of my life just to see that he didn't have enough damage to beat me), and Elise Starseeker takes care of the late game pretty well.

So concluding, i would go for Baron Geddon and Whirlwind instead of 2x Revenge

Seconding this choice. Having that ability to early clear weak minions with a quick WW can make or break a game. Revenge is so glorious because it has the potential to clear in early and late game.

      We have a huge "in the works" update from the Hearthstone dev team, showing off some of the features coming in the next months for the game. From general information like them being pleased about the state of the Standard meta, to potential Wild changes, new Classic cards, an extended "intro" period for new players with 25 additional ranks and extra rewards (that are skippable), plans for improvements to in-game tournaments, a tweaking of the Welcome Bundle and more.
      We're also getting a preview for this year's Hallow's End and an upcoming new Paladin hero!
      September 18 (source)
      Welcome to Hearthstone’s first In the Works update. Here we’re giving you a brief look at what’s coming in the next few months for Hearthstone—game updates and events, esports, and more!
      There’s a lot to talk about, so read on to find out what’s in store.
      Game Updates
       
      The State of the Meta We’ve seen the meta-game start to stabilize in the wake of The Boomsday Project’s release. Decks like Odd Warrior, Odd Paladin, Token Druid, Tempo Mage, Taunt Druid, Zoo Warlock, Quest Rogue, Secret Hunter, Even Paladin, Deathrattle Hunter, and Even Warlock, have all been top performers.
      While those decks stand out from the pack slightly, there are effective decks from every class. Evolve Shaman and Combo Priest have both seen success, for example.
      Overall we’re happy with the excellent diversity of decks we’re seeing at all levels of Ranked Play.
       
      Cards to Watch Giggling Inventor is hugely popular and shows up in a lot of decks. We intended for Giggling Inventor to be powerful because we’ve found that having powerful neutral Taunt minions tends to make games more interesting. We’ve seen that with cards like Sludge Belcher and Tar Creeper in the past. Cards that fulfill this role need to be strong to get that job done, but there’s a line where they might be too good. 
      We aren’t planning any changes to Giggling Inventor for now, but we’re keeping an eye on it in the meantime. We’d like to know what you think.
       
      Wild Balance There’s been an ongoing discussion within the team regarding how Wild should play. Right now, Wild feels somewhat like Standard but with an elevated power level and a vast library of cards. Should Wild live up to its name more, where we allow really crazy and powerful combos to happen, even in the early game? Generally, it’s harder for any one strategy to be dominant in Wild since everything is so powerful and everyone has access to so many tools, but do we want those strategies to exist? We know that there are players who would prefer to have a mode that offers that kind of gameplay.
      There’s also the point to consider that the reason to have multiple modes in Hearthstone is for them to play differently, so there are downsides to trying to put the reins on Wild too much. But we also recognize that there might be decks like Naga Sea Witch that become too prevalent and simply aren’t fun to play against.
      We’d love to hear your opinions about what you want from Wild. What do you think of how it is now, and what’s the role you see for it in the future of Hearthstone?
       
      New Classic Cards If you’ve been playing Hearthstone for a while, then you already know that with each new Hearthstone year, we’ve chosen certain cards to rotate out of the Standard format. Some of those cards have been part of the Classic format, which is usually an evergreen part of the Standard format.
      A few of the cards that left Standard were Class cards, but we want each Class to have a roughly equal number of cards available in the Classic set. To accomplish that, we’re adding four all-new cards to fill the gap.
      Here are the new Class cards being added to the Classic set. You’ll be able to craft them or open them in Classic card packs next month:
       

      When designing these cards we are thinking about new players’ first experiences playing Hearthstone.  They should be relatively straightforward while still creating some exciting moments. They also give players a chance to see and play with cards that they don't own. At the same time it’s important that they aren’t so powerful that they limit future design or cause problems (since they’ll be in Standard for longer than 2 years.)
      Looking forward, we expect more cards to join the Hall of Fame. There are also still some gaps in Classic where neutral Legendary cards joined the Hall of Fame, so we’re considering adding some new cards to the Classic set in the future.
       
      New Player Experience Improvements Even at Rank 25, competition in the Tavern can be fierce, especially if you’ve never played Hearthstone before. We’d like to ease new players into the fray a little more gently, so we’re taking some steps toward improving the new player experience. Here’s what newcomers to the Hearthstone tavern can expect to find:

       
      New players will start at Rank 50. Ranks 50 through 26 will be for new players only, and just like ranks 25 through 20, you can’t lose Stars while ranking up. Once a player achieves Rank 25, they’ll never drop below that rank again. We hope this gives players who are new to Hearthstone a little more time to get used to the Tavern, and we’ll also be giving them a few free gifts along the way to help them get up to speed. If you’re an experienced player making an additional account, there will be an option to skip the New Player Experience (and some loot, so consider carefully!) so you can get back into the competition faster. There are a few more details that we’ll provide in the future, but that’s the gist of it!
       
      In-game Tournaments Update Earlier this year we talked about adding a new feature to Hearthstone that would make it easier to organize tournaments for Fireside Gatherings and private events. The team has been working on this feature for some time, and it was originally slated to arrive this year. Unfortunately, In-game Tournaments are now on hold, so we wanted to take this opportunity to explain why.
      We have a lot of plans to improve many features of Hearthstone, including its social experience, and In-game Tournaments are an important part of that. Tournaments can serve many different audiences, but the implementation we’d arrived at catered to a very specific audience of players. Instead of broadening Hearthstone with an exciting new way to play, it felt “tacked on”, and wasn’t integrating well into the larger Hearthstone experience.
      Ultimately, we were forced to conclude that we needed to think about how and where we want to improve Hearthstone’s overall social experience before we can tackle adding a satisfying and robust implementation of In-game Tournaments that all players can enjoy. As developers, sometimes we have to make the difficult decision to step away from a design that isn’t working. We no longer felt that the end result would deliver on everyone’s expectations or the high standards we have for Hearthstone.
      As a result, while we want to revisit In-Game Tournaments at a later date, the feature is on hold for the foreseeable future.
       
      Fireside Gatherings If you’ve never attended a Fireside Gathering, or organized one of your own, you’re missing one of the most fun ways to enjoy Hearthstone with friends! They’re more fun than ever—including private events in your own home—so drop by the Fireside Gatherings site and check it out.
      Innkeepers are soon going to have even more options to spice up their events. It was already possible to experience Fireside Brawls (Tavern Brawls that can only be experienced at Fireside Gatherings), and now they’ll have a whole menu of Brawls to choose from to offer their attendees. In addition to the rotating monthly Fireside Brawl, Innkeepers will be able to select one additional Fireside Brawl from a curated library of brawls that their patrons will have access to during their Fireside Gathering. 
       
      Esports The 2018 HCT Fall Championship is coming mid-October! Watch it live on stream or live in-person at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles.
      It’s going to be a thrilling event to witness, and if you can be there live, it gets even better! You’ll get to meet Hearthstone developers, enjoy pick-up tournaments on-site, snap up cool stuff like Hearthstone and Blizzard Arena merchandise and earn the Thrill of Victory card back just for attending!
      You can get your tickets here. Get them fast before they sell out as seating is limited!
       
      Welcome Bundle’s Roaring Return Okay, it never left, but it IS getting a majestic make-over. It will still offer 10 Classic card packs at a very low price (great time to try to pick up those new Classic Class cards!), but instead of a random Class Legendary card, it will now include one of six Legendary dragons from the Classic set: Alexstrasza, Deathwing, Malygos, Nozdormu, Onyxia, or Ysera!

       
      There’s even better news! What could be better than dragons, you ask? Even if you’ve purchased the Welcome Bundle before, you’ll be able to grab this one too!

       
      Upcoming Game Events
       
      Hallow’s End
      The Headless Horseman returns for another spooktacular Hallow’s End event starting October 17! Just like last year, the Tavern will be decked out in horrific fashion, the dual Class Arena returns, and you’ll face the Headless Horseman in the Tavern Brawl. In the spirit of the season, we’re tossing a few more treats in the bag this year, and we’ll let you know all about them as the Headless Horseman’s return draws nigh.

       
      Hallow’s End also marks the arrival of a friendly new Paladin Hero who will be available for purchase as a part of a special deal!
       


      And that’s what’s In the Works for Hearthstone! Thanks for joining us, and we look forward to hearing what you think, so let us know on social media, or in the comments below.
      New Paladin Hero, new Classic cards, an improved new player experience with more loot and more!
