N'Zoth Reno Warlock Wild

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!

Will put in a note about this. Thanks!

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.

I have been playing this style of deck for the past two months and was wondering, in light of the release of Un'Goro, if there are better early game AoE options for Renolock.  Granted this is a singleton deck which makes its inconsistency high, but as of now I am getting ran over by either Quest Rogue and Quest Mill Rogue.  I was kind of thinking about using something like Bloodbloom in conjuction with Twisting Nether, but given the fact that that deck runs so many one-drops particularly Patches, the 1/1 pig, and the 2/1 pirate all with charge, you either hope that their draws are horrid beyond belief or you concede.  Maybe there are some thought on a purely anti-aggro build...?

I run Deathlord in place of Mind Control Tech and it works quite well for me, though I played it around rank 13 since Un'goro, so your experience may vary if you are around rank 5 or so. If doesn't work (well enough) for you, let me know.

      iOS users were experiencing some issues while trying to update the game on their devices to 16.4. Blizzard has submitted a new game version to the App Store that should be available for download soon. It seems players on Android are also having some issues that are preventing them from playing the game right now. We will learn what's next for Hearthstone in mid-March.

      We’d like to provide some updates since the 16.4 patch went live yesterday.
      16.4 introduced an iOS issue that could put players into an infinite loop and prevent them from playing. We’ve fixed this issue and have sent a new game version to the App Store. We’re currently expecting this to be deployed to the App Store and available for download soon.
      We’ve also seen players on Android experiencing a few issues that are preventing them from playing. We suspect this is limited to certain devices, so we’re doing testing with a variety of Android devices today to help us learn more about the issue. We’ll share an update on this as soon as we know more.
      Lastly, two issues from yesterday have already been resolved. A temporary issue was preventing players from queueing for Battlegrounds with a friend, but this has been fixed. We’ve resolved another issue where players were seeing an incorrect version of the card Mogu Fleshshaper that was missing art. You should no longer be able to acquire the incorrect card in the game.
      On a separate note, we’ve noted some members of the community wondering if yesterday’s Dragons update for Battlegrounds was the totality of a big communication about game updates that has been rumored. While Dragons is a big update to the Battlegrounds mode, this is just the first step in our plans for the rest of the year. We’ll have more information on what’s next for Hearthstone in mid-March. We’re excited to show all of this to you in just a few weeks.

      In Hearthstone's latest 16.4 update, Dragons have been added as a new Minion type to Battlegrounds. Galakrond and Reno Jackson will join the five Dragon Aspects as new Heroes.

      Battlegrounds Balance Changes

      Sneed's Old Shredder
      Moved from Tier 6 to Tier 5. Mama Bear
      Old: 4/4 Beast, Whenever you summon a Beast, give it +4/+4 - New: 5/5 Beast, Whenever you summon a Beast, give it +5/+5. Tavern Tier 6
      Starting cost of Tavern Tier 6 has been reduced to 10 Gold (down from 11). Dev Insight: Tavern Tier 6 has a lot of exciting minions and we'd like players to have more of an opportunity to reach it than they have. We're also trying to make Tavern Tier 6 more interesting by adding some of these powerful new minions.
      Removed Heroes
      Professor Putricide Dev Insight: We'd like to go back to the drawing board with Professor Putricide. We're going to disable him for now to make way for our new Heroes, but you'll likely see him return in the future with some changes.
      Removed Minions
      Shielded Minibot Annoy-o-Tron Mounted Raptor Phalanx Commander Psych-o-Tron Tortollan Shellraiser Piloted Sky Golem Festeroot Hulk The Boogeymonster Sated Threshadon Dev Insight: We're removing some minions to help make room for the new minions. We also want to balance out the minion pool a bit. For example, there were way more Mechs in Battlegrounds than any other minion type. We're also removing some of the minions that aren't performing very well and ones that have generally been less exciting to play with.
      Game Improvements and Bug Fixes
      Speeding up animations from 0.8s > 0.2s across all game modes for Overkill, Lifesteal, Poisonous, Inspire, and cards that reference "Whenever" and "After" in their text, outside of some special cases. "Recruit" will no longer be displayed on the turn timer when a player is about to lose in Battlegrounds. Rafaam's Hero Power will no longer trigger a Triple notification before you transition to the combat phase in Battlegrounds. Fixed a visual issue in which Golden Primalfin Lookout would sometimes display Golden Murloc cards. Fixed an issue where the scoreboard would not sort players correctly on the first turn if they conceded during the mulligan in Battlegrounds. Fixed an issue where the scoreboard could appear unsorted when reconnecting to a game in progress in Battlegrounds. Arena Rotation
      Starting March 4, the Arena will include cards from the following sets:
      Basic Classic Goblins vs. Gnomes The Witchwood Saviors of Uldum Descent of Dragons Galakrond Awakening   Follow us on Twitter, Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram to get the latest Hearthstone updates.
      The latest Hearthstone patch comes with a new Minion type added to Battlegrounds, new Heroes, limited-time class-specific card packs, and more!

      With the release of the 16.4 update, some players on iOS devices are stuck in an endless update loop according to reports when trying to update the app. Blizzard recommends to uninstall and reinstall the game before they come up with a fix for the issue.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hi all,
      We’ve identified an issue with patching up from 16.2.3 to 16.4 on iOS where players will get stuck in an endless update loop.
      We are working towards bringing a client patch to fix this issue tomorrow. In the meantime, you can update to 16.4 by uninstalling and reinstalling Hearthstone. Thank you for your patience until then.
