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!

      The HCT Summer Championship took place from 13-15 October 2017. The top four players advanced to the World Championship in January.
      After three days of competition the winner was   Surrender, who joins Planet Odd teammate Hoej at the World Championship. Surrender won a tense final 3-2 against   Orange, with the final game being a Highlander Priest mirror. In that game, Orange chose to mill Surrender for five cards to attempt to burn the combo, but the attempt failed. The VoD of the final can be found here.
      Listed below are the other finishing positions, and the number of packs you will receive for picking each player as your champion in the "Choose your Champion" promotion.
      Finalists, 4 Packs: Surrender, Orange. 
      Semi-Finalists, 3 Packs: JasonZhou, Purple
      Quarter-Finalists, 2 Packs: Empanizado, OldBoy, Pavel, Tom60229
      All other players were worth 1 Pack.
      All of the decks from the event can be found on our new esports section here.

      For the first time, the Hearthstone World Champion won't be determined at BlizzCon.
      It was noticed that European venues weren't getting much love in this year's Hearthstone Championship Tour, but it turns out that the World Championship finals will take place in Amsterdam!
      HCT will finish its journey in the Beurs van Berlage Conference centre, lasting from Thursday 18th January 2018 until Sunday 21st January 2018.
      Anyone who physically attends the World Championship will get the following card back, while they will also be able to participate in on-site tournaments:

      The tournament's format will be the same as all other seasonal Hearthstone Championships. 16 players will fight for a total prize pool of $1,000,000 USD! Eight players have qualified so far from the Winter and Spring Championships: Ant, DocPwn, Fr0zen, Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, SamuelTsao and ShtanUdachi. Four more players will qualify from the Summer Championship, that is currently going on this weekend. And the last four players will be seeded from the highest HCT point earners from each region (Last Call slots).
      A question remains: without the World Championship this year, will there be any e-sports events at BlizzCon? According to its schedule, the answer is yes! There will be a Hearthstone Inn-vitational, where four teams of three Hearthstone personalities each will compete against each other in various formats; there is also the NA Tavern versus Tavern tournament.
