Any spot for Prince Malchezaar in this deck?

Maybe Elise Starseeker would be better because Malchezaar just shuffles random legendaries which can screw up your draw ..

Played 3 times against a pirate warrior. I was dead on turn 7, 6, 6.

That's the meta ...

If you're meeting a lot of pirate warriors, maybe you should try a deck that counters them, or just tech cards to counter them.

Guess so. I scored 3 out of 30 with this deck. With almost 90% of opponents being either pirate warrior or some warlock.

Any advice how to beat a golem deck? No matter what you remove, they keep dropping even more and bigger minions.

Sadly, Jade decks are a very good counter to regular control warrior. You have to play more aggressively and try not to stay in the late-game for too long - pretty much the opposite of what you should do against aggro or midrange decks.

What exactly does this deck "control"?

It gets mostly overrun by non-stop pressure decks. It doesnt stand a chance against all those freakin golem decks. And any late endgame it loses due to lack of finishers like lord jaraxxus, reno, havy damage spells etc. It works only against a very limited amount of decks.

This deck is much trickier to play than other control warrior decks (such as N'Zoth warrior) and you need to know exactly what you are doing. Could you please upload a few replays so we can pinpoint where the issue lies?

I'm on a win streak from rank 15 to rank 7 with this game. Not a single loss. I literally stomp pirate warriors and aggro shamans. Only match that was rather close was vs dragon priest, but Ysera really countered him. So I guess there's different experiences

Due to the presence of other powerful Control decks in the meta however, you do need some late-game power to be able to compete with them, which is where Ragnaros the Firelord and Ysera come into play.

I think Ragnaros doesn't belong here any more? ;)

Either i am very very bad (usually, i am not) or this deck is just unplayable.

Called "control" but gets overrun by, uh, kinda everything.

I've seen this deck in action and I can assure you that it preforms very well. What exactly are you getting overran by?

Pirates, shammies, most hunters, most locks punch your face usually.

Please remove it from the deck list.

This deck was tested and worked fine. I played it a bit myself as well and won more games than lost, so I'd say the fault is somewhere else. Could you upload a few replays?

Then just explain me how to beat a shammy, that has 5+ minions from turn 3/4 and ever after, does his transform (either his own minions or yours), and finishes you off on turn 7/8 with his "give minions 3 attack".

Struggling against hunters with all their zombiebeasts. Suggestions? 

Hunters are usually a bad matchup for warriors. As for Deathstalker Rexxar hunter decks, you will have to recognise (or guess) which version they are using - faster, slower, with N'Zoth, the Corruptor, so on. You will then need to adjust your game plan accordingly. Against slower and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, you want to be the one with bigger board at almost all times. Against faster variations, you want to start playing aggressively as soon as you stabilise. It takes a lot of experience, and I would recommend playing a different deck if you are facing a lot of hunters.

Control Warrior has plenty of removal; BrawlWhirlwind/Ravaging Ghoul + Sleep with the FishesExecuteSlamShield Slam and Fiery War Axe, all of which can be played before turn 6. The trick to beating them it to keep their field contained. You also have Shield BlockAlley ArmorsmithArmorsmith and your hero power to give you life. You are not going to win them all but once you work out when to play everything your winrate should be above 50%. Last time I ran Control Warrior I had a 60%+ Winrate against Shaman.

This deck simply runs out of removals against all the classes that can put endless amounts of minions, like shammies, zombiehunters, locks with portals and new hero, etc.

Most important thing when playing control warrior is, proper use of removal.

If you play against a warlock, save one Brawl for the moment Warlock DK hits the board. 

Playing against Shaman, same card can be used to get rid of two waves of Doppelgangster + Evolve.

Also, playing control warrior requires a proper knowledge of meta. Save Execute and Shield Slam for bigger targets.

For the hunter matchup, don't be too hard on yourself, it is a tough matchup.

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      The second of three Unidentified Magic Items to be revealed from Kobolds and Catacombs, will Unidentified Maul be a smashing success on the ladder?
      Kripparrian revealed the second of three Unidentified Magic Items in Kobolds and Catacombs today on his Twitter accounter, Unidentifed Maul:

      A Paladin Weapon, Unidentified Maul begins each game with an unknown effect and will become "identified" upon drawing the card from your deck. The weapon will always be a 3 mana 2/2, but will be randomly bestowed with one of the four following effects when drawn:

      A couple of the potential modes on this card are very enticing. Two Silver Hand Recruits and a 2/2 weapon for 3 mana is a screaming deal, and the other three modes offer some serious value if you're already ahead on board. Given that three of the four potential modes on Unidentified Maul aren't very good when you're behind, I doubt this card will slot in as an instant replacement for Rallying Blade. Unidentified Maul could end up seeing play in token-based strategies, as granting +1 Attack or Divine Shield to a wide board of minions drawn from Small-Time Recruits is nothing to shake a hammer at.
      Will the random nature of Unidentified Maul be its downfall, or will its synergies with token strategies enable it to see some play on the ladder? Let us know what you think in the comments, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      Mage gets its first revealed Kobolds & Catacombs minion. And guess what? Joust is back!
      This card release was unexpected, since it wasn't on the schedule, but it is welcome nonetheless! The Hearthstone Brazil Instagram account revealed this minion:

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is interesting to see the Joust mechanic return after such a long time. I'd place this card in average tier. It is worse than Arcanologist, since it has one less health and it's also not guaranteed that it will draw you a spell. Even compared to Novice Engineer and Loot Hoarder, Raven Familiar might be a better body but the other two cards are run in decks that really need the guaranteed card draw. The poor Raven can be a liability in a control oriented Mage deck.
      This card is slightly better for Arena mode. Then again, spells aren't that common in that mode and there's also a reduced offer rate for spells like Fireball and Flamestrike.
      Lastly, the Beast synergy is noteworthy. I don't think we'll be seeing Beast Mage any time soon. So Raven Familiar is a weak 2-mana drop that can be generated and offered to Hunters - although this is mostly going to affect Wild mode.
      Feel free to visit our Kobolds & Catacombs hub for all details and revealed cards of the upcoming expansion.

      Spoiled yesterday as a 6 mana 5/4, Seeping Oozeling now appears on the PlayHearthstone website with a lowered mana cost.
      Edit: Confirmed in a tweet by the official Hearthstone account, the 5 mana 4/3 version of Seeping Oozeling is an error. Yesterday's 6 mana 5/4 version is the card we'll be seeing in K&C this December.
      Reddit user Fabman650 recently noticed that Seeping Oozeling has different stats on the official PlayHearthstone website than it did in yesterday's spoiler. The card was spoiled yesterday as a 6 mana 5/4, but appears on the PlayHearthstone website as a 5 mana 4/3:

      If this is truly an intended update by Blizzard (and not some kind of mistake), this would be a significant buff to Seeping Oozeling. The true power in this card lies in its Battlecry trigger, not its stats, meaning that a reduction to its mana cost would make it significantly stronger. At 5 mana, Seeping Oozeling also compares much more favorably to Savannah Highmane than it did before.
      Is Seeping Oozeling now strong enough to see play? Let us know what you think about the updated card, and remember to check our news forum and the Kobolds & Catacombs hub for more new cards from K&C!

      Silver Vanguard is a new neutral Common minion that will be introduced in Kobolds & Catacombs.
      PC Gamer has unveiled this brand new card: 

      The stats of Silver Vanguard are terrible for a 7-mana card. One could argue that the Deathrattle could trigger more easily with the card having such low health, but the 7 mana slot mostly contains minions with usually beefy stats. Blizzard seems to want to continue the trend they started in Year of the Mammoth, just like with the newly revealed Spiteful Summoner, of minions with interesting effects, but weak stats and slightly elevated Mana costs.
      As the PC Gamer article points out, Silver Vanguard could pull out some nice minions for Paladin and Warrior. Examples are Tirion Fordring, Ragnaros, Lightlord and Grommash Hellscream.
      What do you, guys and gals, think? As always, all the revealed cards can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs expansion hub.
