I only have one Elemental Destruction and don't really want to craft it since it will rotate out in April.
I understand it is a really powerful card  but what is my best option here to replace it with? More healing or an other spell that does damage that has synergie with Hallazeal the Ascended?

It depends on what you are facing. Extra healing is always good, serves the purpose of the deck. You could either try that, or single target removal. Cards i would try are :

2nd Healing Wave, 2nd  Jinyu Waterspeaker, 2nd Thing from BelowStormcrack

Hello. I'm playing this deck and it's awesome great!!! But I don't have Bloodmage Thalnos. Now I'm playing second Jinyu but I'm thinking to switch him for Ragnaros as another great card but it costs 8 mana... or Street Trickster as spell dmg minion with 7hp can survive a lot? Thanks for advise.

Hello there.

It really depends on what you need from Bloodmage Thalnos. If you think you need the spell damage for better board clears, adding that 0/7 spell damage minion (whose name i do not currently remember :D) or a Kobold Geomancer seems totally fine.

If you think you need the card draw more, you could either add a Loot Hoarder or even better a Far Sight.

Lastly, if you are fine with not having either of the above (spell dmg/ draw) you could add some more healing, like second Healing Wave, or a second Thing from Below.

Greetings to you all guys. Im playing this deck and i can say that it is a very fun to play build. I would like to ask the creators of this deck for mulligans with control matchups like reno-recks. Sadly with this matchup if you expect the zoth win condition you have already lost due to kazakus polymorph potions so i think that the best way is to push the midgame. Is it better to keep my solid minions in my starting hand ? Thanks in advance.

The mulligan sections of many guides are currently being worked on as the meta has changed since many of the decks were posted. The mulligan sections should be updated either this or the following week, so make sure to check back later. Against reno decks, keeping N'Zoth, the Corruptor is alright in some cases even. Generally though, you are looking for mid-game minions during mulligan, especially Barnes. Keeping card draw is fine as well.

      This week's episode features a fresh take on a popular deck, courtesy of Casie.
      Can you guess the next move?
      Situation #22: Let's Even the Odds
      Picking up where we left off last week, we find ourselves in the middle of an odd/even matchup between Warlock and Shaman. I picked this situation partially because it was an interesting spot with many options available to us, and also because its a ladder situation I highly doubt any of my readers have encountered before:

      Commenters quickly identified several key factors about this matchup, namely that Defile and Hellfire are off the table for our opponent and that the only "board clear" available for our opponent is Despicable Dreadlord. Our opponent is more likely to have single target removal (such as Voodoo Doll) or is looking to play a demon-related 5 drop next turn in Skull of the Man'ari, Possessed Lackey, or Doomguard.
      Bozonik summed up this situation excellently in his comment from last week's thread:
      There seemed to be a consensus among commenters that "Option 1", Hero Power + Sea Giant was the line here. It puts a big nasty minion on the board, applying pressure and forcing our opponent to have Voodoo Doll. In the heat of the moment I went with "Option 2", the full clear, but after looking back on things and reading over the comments I believe Hero Power + Giant was the correct line. Despicable Dreadlord is really the only card which gives us serious trouble next turn (since our opponent won't be able to play Possessed Lackey and kill it) and this line plays around Dreadlord while applying just as much pressure as the other options.
      I was secretly hoping that the tap + Giant wasn't the correct line here (because its the most obvious one), but the obvious solution is often the correct one. If you're ever in a situation such as this where you have no idea what your opponent is up to, it's probably best to go for the "obvious" line and not get cute.
      Situation #23: Broken Mirrors
      Today's deck comes courtesy of Kevin "Casie" Eberlein, who cut the dragon package from Mind Blast Priest to turn the deck into something with much more of a combo/aggro feel to it. Many pros are pegging Mind Blast Priest to be the next "best deck in the meta" after the nerfs drop, and Casie's list has a serious advantage in the mirror match:
      Though I didn't find nearly as much success with the deck as Casie did, it did provide me with plenty of interesting situations for What's the Move! Here's the one I ended up choosing for this week's episode:

      It's turn 2, we're on The Coin, and our ladder opponent just played a Wild Pyromancer. For the purposes of this exercise, we can say that we're 100% confident our opponent is on Mind Blast Priest. However, this isn't a mirror match at all. We have Prophet Velen, Holy Smite, two copies of Holy Fire (most Mind Blast Priests run just one), and Lifedrinker in our deck, which gives us a huge advantage in late-game Anduin vs Anduin races. Knowing that we have an advantage in the late game should color our decision heavily on turn two, where have a surprising number of options available to us.
      So, what's the move?
