Book Wyrm doesn't seem like a great recommendation given that (unless I'm being dumber than usual) there's only one dragon in the deck.

Yeah, this part :

Quote

Against Shaman specifically, Book Wyrm is a key card and should be chosen from Netherspite Historian in almost all cases. Book Wyrm has numerous targets in the deck such as Thunder Bluff Valiant, Mana Tide Totem, and Flametongue Totem.

looks totally out of place given deck plays neither Book wyrm nor Historian. Stop The Copypasta!

Can we get some guidance on how to use kazakus?

You usually want stuff that fits your current situation the best. Generally, if you are against aggro decks, you want 1- or 5-cost potion, against control you want almost always 10--cost. Against aggro you usually want to pick FelbloomStonescale Oil or Netherbloom. Against control you want   Kingsblood (unless you have already dug too deep)Ichor of Undeath and Netherbloom. Possibly Heart of Fire if you are behind on board or the opponent has a minion you need to get rid of (such as Ragnaros the Firelord). If you have a solid board, Goldthorn is fine as well.

I disagree.  Reno lock doesn't need 10 mana cost cards to win control match ups.  It keeps you from being able to hero power, which is very important, on top of that, you either out value them in the short term with your insane card advantage or just grind them to dust under jaraxxus (both of which 10 mana cost potions can be very detrimental too).  If your game plan is to just out value them and win through attrition early with your hero power, the 5 mana potion with some combination of resurrect, extra health and summoning a demon is very strong, the AoE, sheep, and damage ones can also be good depending on board state.  If you plan to grind them out using jaraxxus, a 5 mana armor and AoE can be very strong, either that or armor + one of the value ones, depending on the match.  The 10 mana potions can be very situationally useful against N'zoth decks however.  If you know you can't kill them via attrition early, a 10 mana AoE or sheep spell can swing the board on the N'zoth turn to your advantage, and will often outright win you the game, unless your in danger of just fatiguing out (Also most N'zoth decks don't run as much burst as other decks making the armor less important overall).

While renolock does not need it, big stuff in control matchup is always welcome. You can almost always afford to play 10 mana spell.

Well, with 10-cost Kingsblood, you draw as many cards as you would with 5-cost Kingsblood + tap. You pay 3 extra mana but you also improve the other part of the potion, and you take 2 less damage. That's more than okay.

Or you could draw one less card, take 2 more damage and get an entire additional effect, like a 5/5 or +4 health for all your minions (while also having 3 mana to play with).  I am not sure why you would ever pick a 10 mana draw three in warlock.  You generally have such a huge hand it is awkward to even set up a turn where you can draw three without overdrawing, on top of that, if you are going for a 10 mana cost potion, the game is probably going to drag on for a while, and warlocks have a serious problem with fatiguing out in the more grindy games.  Plus, against like reno mage, or control warrior you really want the armor potion so you can jaraxxus and not die to their burst, a 10 mana cost potion makes it really hard to set up a turn where you can jarraxus, because you would generally want to play a 10 mana potion before you jaraxxus since you can't hero power with it, which is a big deal when you are losing a 6/6.

You do get an additional effect even if you take 10 mana potion, so not sure what you mean. Additionally, the other effect is much more powerful.
3 mana is not that good for this deck, as you will have played the small proactive minions the the early game, and a lot of cards that cost 3 mana or less are situational/clear, such as Doomsayer or Demonwrath.

If you have a Kingsblood potion in hand, you just don't tap as much. Simple as that.
Besides, I already said Kingsblood shouldn't be taken if you dug too deep.

You can win against reno mage even without Infernals. What I noticed is that control warriors play Grommash Hellscream much less that they used to and go for anti-aggro tools instead. This means you should not be afraid of Death's Bite + Grommash Hellscream that much, and should probably go for a value or removal tool, such as Mystic Wool, just like you said, or Felbloom. If you are able to get one of these, you usually win even without Lord Jaraxxus.
If you have armor and play Lord Jaraxxus, you lose all the armor.

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 1/10M NH, 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Introdution:
      <Turkeyism> is a (7/7M EN) (2/3M ToV) (3/10M NH) weekend raiding guild on Stormrage US. Our guild was originally formed in early 2013 as a 10man Heroic raid team with the goal to have fun and get as far as possible. After having defeated Heroic Garrosh in Siege of Ogrimmar and ending the Mists of Pandaria expansion ranked 19th on Stormrage, our team decided to push forward into Warlords of Draenor. With the introduction of Mythic in 6.0, our team set out to expand our roster, overcome new challenges, and defeat the final boss on Mythic, all while maintaining a fun atmosphere to raid in. We finished Warlords of Draenor ranking 14th on Stormrage and managed to get 27 of our raiders the Felsteel Annihilator mount from Mythic Archimonde. We are now currently raiding Mythic Nighthold and looking for additional players (870 ilvl+) who seek a challenge and want to have fun.
      Raid Times:
      Friday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      Saturday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      <Turkeyism> is a weekend raiding guild that raids two nights a week from 7:30 – 11:30pm EST on Friday and Saturdays.
      In Demand Classes:
      Paladin (Holy/ret)
      Druid (Balance)
      Priests (Shadow)
      Hunters (Marksmen/Beastmaster)
      Warlocks (Affliction/Demonology)
      Monks (Mistweaver/Windwalker)
      (We prefer the classes listed above but all exceptional applicants will be considered.)
      Guild Expectations:
      So as a guild there are a few things we expect our raiders and recruits to do/know.
      First, we expect our raiders/recruits to know their class fairly well. They should also have a good grasp of the encounters by either having first-hand experience, or by watching tutorials and kill videos online. Knowledge is power as the saying goes.
      Second, we expect players who wish to be part of the core raid team to understand that attendance and showing up on time to raid is important to the success of the guild. We understand when real life issues come up, however it isn’t fair to the other 19 players who showed up if you continuously miss raid because of “reasons”. This is why we want to make sure that our raiders/recruits understand that by joining our raid team, you are making a commitment to the rest of the group to show up every week. Ultimately, we are all individuals working together towards a common goal and our success or failure as a group depends upon people committing to the team.
      Third, we expect our raiders/recruits to be able to take criticism from others. If we notice that you could improve in any manner, we won’t hesitate to point it out. We won't ever attack others for making mistakes, but we will politely let them know of their blunders and how they could improve.
      Fourth, raiders/recruits should be willing to sit out for certain encounters. We know it isn’t the most fun thing to have to sit out on a boss fight, especially if there is loot or if you’ve worked hard getting to that encounter. However, not all fights are created equal and sometimes we have to ask players to sit out in order to have the best group composition to complete the encounter. Your willingness to sit out won’t be forgotten and we try to make sure that everyone gets a chance to kill the boss and get loot.
      Fifth, all recruits are expected to present WarcraftLogs in their applications. This will give us an idea of how you handle mechanics and how well you performed. We understand that your time is valuable and so is ours. By looking at your WarcraftLogs we can get an idea if you can perform within the required range were looking for before bringing you in to raid with us.
      Finally, our guild is made up of players in their early 20’s/mid-30’s and our chat can sometimes get spicy and very adult oriented. We can sometimes talk about off the wall stuff, some of which can get very “Rated R” very fast.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
