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.

Any Sub for Twilight Guardian ? dont wanna spend 800 dust and them getting rotated in a few months.....

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.

Really love this deck but seems this deck doesn't have any AoE board cleanup any suggestion how to survive...??? Thanks.

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.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
