Why do i need Jaraxxus When i have Reno? Any replacement?

 

Lord Jaraxxus is an amazing card and is the perfect tool when dealing with other control decks.  A 3/8 Weapon and a summon 6/6 hero power can be too strong to deal with.  On top of all that, he is like an extra healing card as your heath becomes 15 so he can end up "Healing" you for a maximum of 14. If you do not have him then the slot is open to what ever tech card you feel you need. Reno decks are pretty flexible with their card list.

Also except for tech cards, you could try Alexstrasza

Replacement for Brann?

Brann Bronzebeard synergises with a lot of important cards in this deck, so it's recommended to get him. You could try Flame Juggler as an anti-pirate warrior card, Forbidden Ritual as a filler card, Voidwalker as an early-game taunt, or Sen'jin Shieldmasta as an early mid-game taunt.

Positiv2 = Sen'jin Shieldmasta's promoter. :P

Well, Sen'jin Shieldmasta is simply a great, but overlooked taunt minion. However, with MSoG out, I think I might start using Second-Rate Bruiser as my taunt of choice. So, that is another replacement option.

Second-Rate Bruiser is a fantastic card for a meta as fast as the one we have right now. 4/5 for a very possible 3 mana is very nice.  Hell, even for 5 mana it's still not that bad. Sorry Sen'jin Shieldmasta, you've been replaced. lol

Hey thanks for the deck. 2 questions:

1. Is it wise to replace Mind Control Tech with Mountain Giant?

2. I don't own Kazakus, although I have enough dust to craft it. To be honest, I don't even like Kazakus much. I believe it is an overrated, "flavor-of-the-month" card, and will soon be out of meta. So far, I have used a Second Rate Bruiser. But the question remains, should I craft it, or simply carry on?

Besides these two card swaps, everything else is the same.

Thank you for your time. Cheers!

Mountain Giant is an anti-control card, whereas Mind Control Tech is an anti-aggro card. I cannot recommend the swap in current meta.

Kazakus is a core card to Reno decks, but since Reno Jackson is going to rotate soon, I would rather wait and see what the following adventure brings.

Thanks for the reply and thoughtful advice! I'll do as you suggested! But what do you mean Reno Jackson is going to rotate soon? Please don't tell me they are removing/changing it! It's my 2nd favorite card in the whole game after our lord and savior Lord Jaraxxus!

Reno Jackson, like all cards from The Grand Tournament, Blackrock Mountain and the League of Explorers; will rotate out of Standard and only be usable in Wild mode when the next expansion/adventure hits.

      A new series of posts in the official forums will shed some light into the inner workings of the Hearthstone team. Welcome to Tavern Talk!
      In this first installment, three questions are answered. The first has to do with additional rewards for players who have earned a Golden Hero with every class. Unfortunately, no extra rewards are planned since the team wants new features or rewards to be obtainable by 10% or more of the playerbase.
      Then, we have an update on the new player experience. Team 5 wants to add additional ranks above rank 25 for new players, so they can mostly face each other in their first steps in the ranked ladder. You will be able to only progress forward in these ranks, similarly to what already happens from rank 25 to 20.
      Lastly, we have a double question about using alternate card art and reprinting cards. The team doesn't like the idea of alternate card art, since it makes sense that players associate and remember a specific card from its art. Reprinting cards is something that has been discussed already and it's something they might do in the not-so-near future after careful consideration.

      Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the tavern? Ava and the crew’s antics aside, the Hearthstone development team works hard on a myriad of tasks to bring you the game you know and love so well. More than that, we also make the time to read about the different issues and questions the community brings to light each day. Welcome to Hearthstone Tavern Talk, where we’ll share with you answers to some of the questions we see in our community!
      Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?
      Usually when we add new features or rewards we like to make something that can be obtained by 10% or more of our players. Only very few of our players have the 9 Golden Heroes, and we feel that’s already pretty awesome by itself.
      Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience?
      We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
      What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?
      Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card.
      Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
      See you at the next edition of Hearthstone Tavern Talk!

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!
