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

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

Thanks for pointing this out, it'll be fixed soon, hopefully.

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?

Play this deck if you want do be dead before turn 10.

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?

Agreed, I have a positive win rate with mine as well.

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 Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.

      Two new cards from Rastakhan's Rumble were revealed in an official blog post detailing the story of the upcoming expansion.
      The first card revealed is a neutral Pirate:

      It's important to clarify that the Overkill effect triggers only on your turn (ie. when you attack and not when you are attacked) and this minion will draw you cards even if it dies as long as you Overkill something. Other than that, it feels slow for an aggro Pirate deck and its low Health means it can be killed easily. Perhaps it could make for a decent Arena card.
      The awesomely named second card of the day is Heavy Metal!

      Here is a spell with the Geosculptor Yip effect, at a reduced cost and minus the body. Interestingly enough, this card would have been better if it costed 5 or 7 mana since it would fit in Odd Warrior, a deck that heavily utilises armoring up. Even Warrior might become a thing in the future, but still with Yip never really having caught on, it's really hard to see this card fit into any Warrior deck.
      The blog post itself is interesting, since it gives an introduction to the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. We see Rikkar - the aspiring Troll champion, who is also the protagonist of the Rumble Run - entering the Gurubashi Arena and trying to pick which team he is going to side with. The Tigers - the Paladin team - are described as the returning champions of Rastakhan's Rumble. We are eager to see what's next for this expansion!

      The Hearthstone subreddit interviewed Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden on the upcoming Rastakhan's Rumble expansion.
      You can read the entire interview here.
      Interview Highlights
      Rastakhan's Rumble has been in development for almost a year, from January 2018. Spirits will be appearing in the Arena. We won't see much of old Keywords in Rastakhan's Rumble, but they are open to revisiting them (Hero and highlander cards, Inspire and C'Thun were mentioned). One of the design lessons Team 5 has learned is that they want more build-around cards that have cheap rarity (like the Spirits). With Rastakhan's Rumble, they wanted classes to feel like a team. Captain Hooktusk, the Rogue champion, is an original Hearthstone character. Pirates are mostly in Rogue in this expansion. They are still pretty aggressive, but there are some more expensive pirates in this set.

      The reveal season for Rastakhan's Rumble starts with a Paladin card.
      Every recent Hearthstone expansion has had its own series of funny blog posts and videos. Blizzard collaborated with Wronchi in The Boomsday Project and now they are back for Rastakhan's Rumble.
      Hearthstone's heroes are waiting in line to get tickets to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Everyone has the gold for it, except from poor (literally) Uther. He does get a card reveal though and the story will be continued from what was teased in the end.

      People have been comparing this card to Evasion and Ice Block. It certainly has it pros and cons. You can play it proactively, even at high health and you can combine it perfectly with a weapon swing or powerful healing spells. On the other hand, Time Out! requires more setting-up and better game knowledge of what cards your opponent might have on his/her hand. This card could potentially go into a Control Paladin deck, along with Shirvallah, the Tiger legendary Loa minion.
      What do you think?
