Awesome deck. Why Senjin? 

Side-Note, chance missed on calling the deck "Drag-Goon Paladin"

Big Sen'jin Shieldmasta allows you to switch from somewhat defending the board to all face and go for the kill. In current aggro weapon meta, big taunts are quite hard to get rid of without losing a lot of health.

Is there any good replacement for Wickerflame Burnbristle?

I have also another question: which Hero Power should I prioriteze when Finley hits the board?

You could go for Nightbane TemplarBlackwing CorruptorBlackwing Technician or Azure Drake to get high-value minions, or you could use Sen'jin Shieldmasta to get another taunt.

As for hero power, you should go for tempo (mage, druid) or draw (warlock). If you are against a very aggro deck, you could even go for priest hero power.

As for hero power, you could also go for hunter, BUT only against slower matchups, in which you have the card advantage.

Examples could be Reno priests, or Control warriors, which had a hard time dealing with your early explosive start and have run out of cards. This of course requires managing your resources correctly and knowing when to stop playing extra things on the board (playing around AOEs and stuff), which puts your opponent into an awkward spot.

Example : having 3 unanswered minions on the board, with a full hand is a nightmare for a control warrior, cause 3 minions are not enough to force a Brawl, cause next turn you will fill the board again.

In the cases described above, having the hunter hero power for extra pressure is, at least in my opinion, more useful.

Not sure about this deck.  I either get Controled or ran into the ground by aggro decks.  Granted I've used the cards listed. And then swapped for what would be a better choice in my opinion.

Any swap for Sir Finley Mrrgglton?

You can try another dragon synergy card like Nightbane Templar, an extra dragon (either an Azure Drake or a big one like Alexstrasza/Onyxia/Nefarian/Chromaggus/Chillmaw should you have any of them) or another buff card like a Blessing of Kings.

I would however recommend that you get Sir Finley.

Twilight Guardian bring amazing value to this deck. I suggest adding one Azure Drake and either Blackwing Corruptor or Nightbane Templar. If have you issues with aggro decks, Acidic Swamp Ooze is a fine addition as well. Your winrate won't be as good as with Twilight Guardians though.

Is it worth trying to fit in Rend Blackhand for a legendary removal, or is this too rare to worry about do you think?

Most of legendaries run nowadays are small, such as Patches the Pirate or Bloodmage Thalnos. Against these legendaries, it is better to run Consecration than Rend Blackhand, as Consecration affects more minions, and is cheaper and more flexible.

You will need to flood the board and trade efficiently. If you have issues against aggro, you can add Consecrations (one or two copies) in place of Netherspite Historians.

Sir Finley Mrrgglton do you want the warlock card draw with him?

Depends on the deck you're facing. Against control, go for warlock's hero power. Against tempo or midrange, go for mage's hero power, and against aggro go for mage, priest, or warrior.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
