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 ..

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?

One way I've seen control warrior win vs control/ mid range is by getting monkey early ..

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

      Blizzard have announced that the next Hearthstone year will be called The Year of the Mammoth. Six cards from the Classic set will be moved to a new Hall of Fame set, which can only be played in Wild.
      The announcement explains that the new Hall of Fame set will include cards that are currently in the Reward set, but the big news here is the six cards that will be leaving Standard. You can see Blizzard's reasons on the link above, but I've given a few notes in this article. Those cards are shown below.
      As well as the removed cards, there will be no adventures in 2017. Instead we will be given three full expansions that will be accompanied by a single-player mission, which will be used to enhance flavour, and offer challenges. This sounds like it will be along the lines of an adventure, but optional. I feel this is a great change, as it hurts nobody.

      Azure Drake is simply in too many decks. It is a hard card to nerf without making it weak, but it is pretty much as powerful as a 5-drop can be. Removing this to free up other 5-drops makes sense.

      The reasoning for Sylvanas is similar. Blizzard's words make a lot of sense on this one, and also give an insight into the future:
      Blizzard
      Similar to Azure Drake, it’s hard to see a card at the six mana cost out-value Sylvanas. In addition, Sylvanas has the most powerful Deathrattle effect in the game—as a comparison, the Priest card Mind Control costs 10 mana. We have exciting Deathrattle build-arounds coming soon, and in combination with Sylvanas, they would be too powerful for Standard. This seems to imply that N'Zoth, the Corruptor will be making a big comeback soon!

      I suspect a lot of people will be glad to see the back of Ragnaros. The Random element was often a contentious issue.

      The removal of Power Overwhelming is a bit of a surprise, but it seems that it has mainly been nerfed because of its strength in combinaton with cards like Leeroy Jenkins and Faceless Manipulator. I would also assume that Warlock is going to be getting some fun new toys to replace it.

      Ice Lance has been removed to remove Freeze Mage and allow new strategies to develop. It is also interesting that Blizzard mention it will allow them to make cards that copy cards. That could also apply to Power Overwhelming, so I would expect something along those lines to be in the next set.

      Conceal leaving will make sense to everyone. It allows Gadgetzan Auctioneer to survive as an interesting card, and removes the annoyance of not being able to interact with your opponent.
