I'm going to be trying this out some variations of this as soon as I get the cards.  The Radiant Elemental + Lyra combo could be killer if you can hold on to some 1 mana spells until turn 7.   I may try to work Infested Tauren in there just to get another deathrattle/taunt minion, depending on how popular aggro decks are.

Would Cairne be a good fit into this deck? And if so which card would be replaced by it?

Cairne is almost always a reasonable Deathrattle minion.  You can try using it in place of any of the cards mentioned in the swap section, such as Holy Smite or Loot Hoarder.

I run a similar deck with Cairne in it. It's slightly less expensive since I can't afford Lyra, and Cairne has always been great. Getting to duplicate it with Barnes, Onyx Bishop, or Mirage Caller creates massive tempo plays and makes your N'zoth even more insane.

You don't have to post this one up but I noticed under "Awaken the makers" it says "Amara can also be used for its raw stats, as an 8-mana 5/5..." Maybe a little tweak, as Amara is a 5-mana 8/8. Thanks for reading this!

I ended up removing the Radiant Elemental / Lyra combo in favor of some additional deathrattle minions. In a couple battles I actually ended up with too many cards in my hand after Crystalline Oracle / Shifting Shade / Lyra started doing their work.

I might try that combo with a Velen priest just to see what happens though.

Near the bottom it says "8 mana 5/5" instead of 5 mana 8/8

Thanks for pointing it out, we'll be fixing it shortly!

Can't say this deck is the best... I running into alot of trouble. Most rush decks beat me... because I rely on getting Holy Nova to clear. I've also run in serveral situations were I've needed my removals (Shadow Word Cards) and they just don't appear. Several times I've had 10 cards left, and 4 of them have been the Shadow Word cards.

You *need* those removals to compete with the Warrior quest deck... because radiant elementals, loot hoarders and crystal oracles with 2 dmg doesn't cut it.

I've not had much luck with radiant elemental, as its usually removed... or i get 0 spells with it. When it does work it works really well with Lyra, but the scenario it which this combo works is rare.

I was rank 18+ 3stars late last week... I've played this deck continuously since then to learn it, because I want it to work, but now I'm thinking the deck isn't worth it, I'm now rank 20 with 0 stars. Thats 20+ games and I'm pretty sure I've only won 3-5 games.

This deck isn't an easy one to play, but is quite powerful nonetheless. I would suggest uploading a few replays to see what's the core of the issue.
If you have issues against certain decks, and you face them quite often, you can use some tech swaps from the swap section, like Dragonfire Potion.

I've been playing a list close to this, it's super fun and tricky to play, but does some really powerful things. Unfortunately, I lose badly to Cavern Rogue. Still fun, still will play, but being a dog to that deck (which seems like 30 percent of field) sucks. Stuck about rank 13 pretty consistently.

Ive just had a few games, tempo wise its too slow. I usually get crushed before I've cast my last deathrattle. One thing im noticing is that using the cards in my possession alot to try and maintain board control, but because this deck is made up mostly of 1-2dmg minions with little health they're getting blown away by warrior cards/mage casts. This leaves me open to hits.

Theres no point even trying to go up against the murloc shammy, and cavern rogue.

You can also add more proactive plays like Tar Creeper or Infested Tauren.

What cards would work well against cavern rogue? I play a slightly less proactive version of the deck (no Lyra, more minion value) and amara doesnt usually cut it, even if I can get it without dying.

You should actually try for more proactive power, to be able to trade better and more often. You could also try Dragonfire Potion, simply because it clears the whole board of 5/5s.

Amara says 'Set your hero's health to 40', right? She doesn't heal you technically. Why does she kill you when played as there is an Auchenai Soulpriest on board? Shouldn't Amara work like Alexstrasza?

Maybe they should change the wording to say, Set health of your hero to 40, and fully heal your hero' Then, it would make sense.

Yeah, Blizzard's card wording has proven to be inconsistent. I doubt that it will be fixed in the upcoming patch. We'll probably have to wait quite some time for this to be fixed. After all, Mistress of Pain + Auchenai Soulpriest is getting fixed after almost 3 years. I hope I am wrong though.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
