Spent 5k dust to make this deck and won 2 of 30 games at rank 15, a real nightmare WTF?!

This deck is very hard to play, but when you master it, it is truly rewarding. If you aren't experienced enough in Hearthstone, the deck will have a very low winrate due to its difficulty. I recommend either playing the deck over and over until you get sufficient experience with it, or play other decks and then come back to the deck later.

Fun deck, but that's a tough win condition to get consistently.  Maybe when the meta stabilizes it will be more productive, but who knows.  I really want to work in Antonidas with waygate, but can't seem to make him fit in standard.

This deck is very bad against aggro, if somehow u dont get the crucial spells u're done. When rogue gets his 5/5s at turn 6/7, theres literally nothing u can do.

Please don't put coldlight oracles into this deck. Any kind of draw except that. Right now in the meta every single deck benefits as much or more than this deck from draw.

Thats weird, cuz i am actually ranking up with this thing (16th rank only yet tho). That satisfaction smashing opponent like this totally outweights the spent dust/low winrate. I had to switch the 1/1s: draw a card for a volcanic potion, because my hand were constantly full and i have had a really hard time dealing with hunters. Keep trying, totally worth it.

Not really, as it gives you both tempo and the much needed draw. If you do face a ton of aggro decks, you could swap them for second Blizzard and a second Babbling Book.

As others are saying it really does have a high learning curve. I just botched one game but still would have won through the Quest + spell draw set up. In the end I overdrew my cards and got killed from fatigue right after playing Timewarp. A bit more practice and I get how it would be really intense.

I just played against this combo for the first time. I admire your creativity, but this deck is very frustrating to play against. You have successfully combined the time consuming and depressing freeze/ice block mechanics with an infinite fireball one-turn-kill trick. Again, I give you props for your effective strategy, but I honestly hope this gets nerfed like OTK warrior once did :|

Coldlight is only really bad against quest rogue. But as I often struggled with to many cards in hand to play the tome efficiently, I exchanged one copy for a kabal courier for another discover effect that most of the time generates a useful card and sometimes even a very good spell.

I just played my ridiculous ramp druid I use to complete the overpowered quest and played against quest mage. Took my opponent to fatigue to complete the setup. Here is what the win condition looks like if you're having trouble envisioning it

That is a horrific sight if you're on the other side of that barrel.  Thanks for the share and sorry for your lose. :P lol

@KingMe don't be. It was a great game. Just casual and I got to play 9 out of 10 cards to complete the daily quest since it ran so long. I considered it a win. It was also the first time I had seen the infinite fireball. I thought it was hilarious

That's the spirit. :) One day I will sit down and test this deck more thoroughly.

Executing final combo is soooo satisfying. ;) Hard though. ;p Deck is great agains control decks like quest warrior and pretty weak against aggro like pirate warrior, so its hard to mulligan well when you compete against warriors. Matches are long and you need to think much what card do you want to play and how to manage your hand. Thats why its bad deck to climb the ladder.

Yeah, it's more of a fun deck than regular ladder deck. You could tryhard the deck, but there are certainly way better decks to play. Glad you're having fun with it!

      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.

      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 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 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!

      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?

      You can purchase the virtual ticket for this year's BlizzCon here.

      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!
