Played this for a short amount of time today and finished with a 15-7 result. Felt easy to understand the synergies for a new HS-standard player like me and it seems like the deck got a "good flow" to it. I had problems against decks with large taunt minions and one really fast Beast deck that owned the board too fast for me to handle.. any help how I can improve my game against decks with large taunt minions? I feel like I miss something or use my cards wrong... 

any help greatly appreciated!

Thanks 😊

It's different from deck to deck. Ramp druid runs a lot of taunts, so do quest warrior and wall shaman, yet each require different strategy to beat. If you could upload a replay against any deck you had in mind by "decks with large taunt minions", that would be much appreciated.

I feel like aggro is a bad matchup for this deck, as you cannot afford not to play on curve, yet sometimes you have in order to activate the elemental battlecries. Switching to a different deck should help.

Easily made it to rank 13. Deck is a 50/50 against Quest Rogue. Also  found that it had trouble against hunter. Otherwise great deck. starting with coin is a major boost to how well this deck performs.

I have a similar deck but I squeeze in a meteor and Hemet, Jungle Hunter instead of the Arcane Intellect.  It is a great deal of fun.  The Meteor great for big late game minions, and Hemet helps you secure the win when you have them on the ropes.

Hemet, Jungle Hunter? Interesting. I'm still trying to find a way to squeeze him into something.  I may just look into this.

Noxious, Thijs, Kripp, Toast and a a couple of others have been experimenting with a Mage Hemet deck, which is basically: "Survive the first turns, do what damage you can, drop Hemet, finish opponent off with guaranteed direct damage topdecks." Have a look here, Thijs is trying it out:

Damn, I just realized I haven't watched any of my streamers since this set came out. (Kripp, Trump, and Kibler are my favorites.) I want to try this out now and I need to catch up on some videos while I'm at it. Thanks for sharing. :D

You could use any of the cards mentioned in the card swap section, whichever one you feel would help you in your current meta.

Really like the deck and getting decent results. Just when having a bad hand the first 1-2 moves, i find myself struggling a lot.

can someone suggest me an alternative to Babbling Book ? i am too late to buy wings with gold and i dont want to spend 20 dollars

The cards will remain in standard for about 9 months, so it is still a good investment. Primordial Glyphs are the cards you want to use in place of Babbling Books. You can use any cards from the full budget version or the Thijs variation though. If that is not possible for you, 1x Acidic Swamp Ooze and 1x Polymorph should be good enough until you can do the aforementioned swaps.

Tried for the first time to tweak a suggested deck because i was having hard time to even do the basics.Bad mulligans and different style made me remove some duplicates in order to add some more reassuring cards i am used to play with mage decks.The results were immediately interesting,even in the short run (9-3 W/L).It's not made for the ladder but I would be glad to know what you think of it.Thanks!

Ofc it's great to pull out The Lich King but it's very unlkely

To be honest,i tried this outrageous gamble after having been toasted twice against different decks who got this combination.Clearly it never worked for me.Best outcome was a 1/1 Sindragosa (meh...).This would have worked better with other big tech legendary cards like Gruul or Illidan Stormrage but i can't cripple the deck just to add two more legends...Today i am going to try Questing Adventurer,i think it could give an extra gear on the deck's dynamic.

Need some help. I made this deck, carrd for card, and even tried some recommended and experimental substitutions. 

I can't get this deck past rank 20 ....... what the f***. 

I constantly get destroyed by decks thay swarm the board, and boost everything on the board, and I have zero options to counter.

Or I lay down some nasty firepower, and the other player you feed everything and I'm left in the dust. 

With a good fast start, I'll win by turn 5, but that happens once every 10 or so games. 

This picture for example. 

 

How can this deck be rank 13+? When I'm getting destroyed at 20.

@Gitbse Could upload a few replays? I have been rather successful last season with the deck, so a few replays could help us identify the issue.

      Madame Lazul was revealed by @PlayHearthstone on Twitter:
      Even though her effect is slightly unoriginal and perhaps not worthy of an orange gem, it's quite flavourful for Madame Lazul to be able to see through your opponent's hand. She can fill Curious Glimmerroot's place quite well. On the other hand, Chameleos offered a bit more insight on the opponent's hand and it wasn't really played in any serious decks. Lazul is more versatile thanks to the Discover effect.
      What's your take on this card?

      Ever since the announcement of the Hearthstone Masters system, the details on the final tier - Hearthstone Grandmasters - have been a mystery. However, Tom Matthiesen from Inven Global has released some info on its format, prize pool and invited players.
      According to Inven Global, Hearthstone Grandmasters will have a league structure. It will consist of two seasons per year, with each season lasting eight weeks. Each region will have 16 players, who will be divided into two groups of eight. Europe and the Americas seem to be paired together, while it's not defined how Hearthstone Grandmasters will work for other regions.
      Inven has even acquired the names of 15 European participants and 13 from the Americas. They are all well-known pro players like Bunnyhoppor, Pavel, Thijs, Kolento, RDU, Firebat, Muzzy, Dog, Purple and more! The last four players will be determined by the results of the upcoming World Championship.
      Participants will play twice a week, facing off against each other in a double round-robin system. Hearthstone Grandmasters conclude with global finals. After the two seasons have ended, the two players who performed worst in season 2 in their respective region will be demoted and no longer play in Hearthstone Grandmasters.
      As far as the compensation of the players is concerned, each of them will earn $1,000 per week as an appearance fee. For each match won, another $500 is given to the participating players. The prize pool of the global finals is said to be $500,000. It's highly likely there'll be more rewards per seasonal performance.
      Hearthstone Grandmasters is set to start soon after the Hearthstone World Championships have concluded. Blizzard is expected to share these details sometime next week.

      This is a brand new Constructed Tavern Brawl.
      In Battle of the Bans, you pick a class and you initially make a deck of four cards. Your opponent bans one of them and then your deck is filled with copies of the remaining three cards.
      The "ban phase" happens after the mulligan but before turn one, and will show 3 of your opponent's cards plus a mystery card. If you pick the mystery card to ban, it will be revealed to you. If you have copies of the card your opponent chose to ban in your hand, they will be replaced randomly by your 3 other cards.
      To keep things balanced, the following cards have been banned from Battle of Bans: Jade Idol, Ice Block, Time Out!, Patches the Pirate and Whizbang the Wonderful.
      The concept of this Tavern Brawl is very interesting. Not only do you need to pick the proper cards that work well together, you also have to keep into account that one of them will get banned. In turn, you also need to be smart with your ban choice.
      This Brawl is very similar to Top 3: one of the decks that is really consistent in both of these Brawls is Mech Hunter with Metaltooth Leaper. Jade Shaman seems to be doing well as you get to summon even larger men every consecutive turn. Discardlock is reportedly performing very solidly, as well. A really strong counter-deck includes Holy Wrath and Shirvallah, the Tiger.
      As far as bans are concerned, since this Brawl seems to favour aggro decks in general, make sure to ban any taunts your opponent has. Alternatively, you can try a spell-based Mage or Priest deck.
      Feel free to share the decks that worked for you in the comments!
