How about including cenarius in this deck? 

Cenarius is bit too expensive (mana-wise) to be included in the deck. The deck already runs 2 Savage Roars as finishers, so no need for the +2/+2 buff from Cenarius, and if you need a taunt past turn 9, you have most likely lost anyway.

Could Mark of the Lotus be a part of this deck? I always thought it could be a good card for token druid. And it is also a 1-mana spell, which can be used effectively with Gadgetzan Auctioneer

Absolutely - the swap sections says that you can use Mark of the Lotus in place of Power of the Wild.

To add to this: As it was my first deck, Sottle took a look and suggested Mark too. I played both cards extensively, and came down on the side of the PotW as I felt that sometimes I was a little short on minions. Swapping them over to suit your own playstyle will be absolutely fine.

Is there something to be done vs super aggro decks like Pirate Warrior?

Sadly it is just a bad matchup. You should play Living Roots to make 2 1/1s if at all possible. Don't get greedy with any cards, play Power of the Wild as a 3/2 if you need a body to get in the way and concentrate on not dying. Your 3/5 minions should be able to take over the game if you can get them down either before the Pirates has got rolling, or after you've got rid of the first wave. If you can get them down on turn three with either Wild Growth or Innervate you can get into the game. You should also be able to steal some games with Savage Roar too if the Pirates player gets too ambitious.

Overall though, you will lose a lot of the time to Pirates for now. 

The good news is that this all changes in the next patch. The upcoming nerf to Small-Time Buccaneer should mean that Pirates is played less.

Edit: At the early stages of testing, I didn't even play Swipe, and went all-in on making a huge board. The Swipe is a nod to the fact that Pirates exists, and although you don't keep it in your opening hand as there are bigger problems to worry about, drawing into it can be a godsend.

On the flipside, it is a fantastic deck to play when pitted against other control decks and a favourable draw on curve will set up a nearly unbeatable jade golem formation unless you're opponent has some hard board clears to hand. Nerfing Pirates, the natural counter to Jade Druid, may not be all good news if it makes an already strong deck even harder to beat. Hopefully there will be one or two jade card adjustments to balance out the changes.

This should no longer be listed under Standard, since Azure Drake moved to the Hall of Fame.

Thanks for pointing that out. We'll get right on that. :)

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival. If you want to find out more about the Frost Festival, check our main article on it.

      As Ragnaros' Midsummer Fire Festival has ended, it is time for Ahune the Frost Lord to take over with the Frost Festival! 
      As we explained in our previous post, this is a holiday that celebrates Arena mode. Once you log in the game, you will see that Ahune is giving you a free Arena ticket for this week. This will happen for the entire duration of the festival, so in total you will get three free Arena keys.
      You will also get a free win each time you start an Arena run, whether it's from a free or a purchsed entrance key.
      You will also get a quest to play three Arena games. This weekly quest awards you with a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack. Once again, you will receive this quest next week and the week after that accounting for a total of three Knights of the Frozen Throne packs (assuming you complete the quests).

      Feel free to check out our Arena guides and card rankings before you step into the Arena!
      As far as the themed Tavern Brawl called Ahune's Superior Brawl is concerned, you can read more about it here.
      The Frost Festival has created speculation for the next expansion. Since it will run for three weeks, it is going to end on August 9. The day after that, August 10, is thought by many to be the date that Knight of the Frozen Throne will be released.

      Well, after the failed interview with Ben Brode and his dreams of being a Hearthstone developer squashed, the Lord of the Scourge decided to prove himself an accomplished entrepreneur and take what he's naturally good at - making ice - and adding cream. And so, behold the new ICC, Arthas' latest wondrous edifice: the Ice Cream Citadel.
      Of course, true to form, Blizzard took this little in-joke all the way and will have the Ice Cream Citadel, an actual ice cream shop, at the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con®, featuring two flavors: Villain-illa and Scourgeberry Sorbet.
      Blizzard (source)

      Greetings, mortal whelps!
      As part of my efforts to prove to the accursed Brode that I possess the necessary experience to command the Hearthstone development team, I have decided to expand my efforts to all aspects of mortal enterprise.
      At first I considered peddling power and vengeance, but according to my focus testing, the foremost human craving seems to be for cold, creamy, sweetened sludge. I have decided to create a frozen-cream sugar-ooze unlike any you have ever tasted. You will desire it.
      Prepare yourselves for the grand opening of Ice Cream Citadel, a fortress of refreshment in the scorching heat that afflicts this place. I will be on hand to personally help you conquer the heat with free ice cream. You need spend no money for your first taste of my power.
      Choose from an endless selection of TWO flavors:

      Behold my tasteful brochure:

      Attend the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con® and be guided to your just desserts by this map:

      You may also take photographs of me with no immediate fear of retribution. Share proof of your delicious ice cream conquests on social media using the #icecreamcitadel “hashtag,” whatever that means.
      Begin preparations for your journey now. Ice Cream Citadel will receive supplicants between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. PDT July 20 through July 22, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm PDT on July 23.
