This is by far the shittiest build i've tried.

1 win and 10 losses so far.

Such a comment is pretty difficult to respond to. Without some understand of where exactly the deck is failing you, or without seeing you play some games (you can record/stream them and upload them somewhere), there isn't much we can say, I'm afraid.

This deck is situational and requires quite a bit of skill to play + having combo cards in hand. What I mean by combo cards are sword of justice and imp master, wild pyromancer and equality, knife juggler and argent protector. The peak of cards in this deck is 3 and 4 mana crystals, making it mid game heavy. What I like about this deck is that you can make powerful monsters mid game, but I don't like that if you have no blessing of kings, or SoJ, most cards turn out to be a 1/1. Relying on divine favor for card draw is a gamble, and most likely I don't need it until both of us are pretty much out of cards anyway. Luck of card draw 6/10, skill required to play this deck 6/10

Hello,

This is my first post here and I wanted to express my gratitude toward the IV team for the great work they do first.

 

That beeing said, this deck is quite impressive. I just build it for questing this morning and I just rushed my quest 5-0.

 

Maybe I was just lucky but I've been playing since the neta (which does not mean I play good, just that I know a bit how this game works) and It almost never happened to me.

 

The deck is almost a no brainer and it wins. I guess maybe because mainly people do not expect a Pala rush ?

 

Anyway I consider going for a run in ranked, just to see how far it can get me...

I noticed this deck was changed a little bit and I wanted to try it out. so far ive had good luck with the midbudget agro mage and lock. Not so much with the midbuget agro hunter. the old deck only required 1 avenging wrath I think, so I am one short and don't have enough to make one. Whats a good card to add? A spell breaker or iron beak owl for silence? Maybe a holy light or guardian of kings for health? I need 300 more arcane dust to make avenging wrath so it would be temporary.

Ignore my previous post. I had some cards I disenchanted for classes I don't play and I made the 2nd avenging wrath. I think the 2 avenging wraths are a must probably, I was testing the deck and won because if the second avenging wrath. i like this build better than the previous one with sword of justice and pyro. useful cards seemed to just flow into my hand.

I finished my 10 game testing of the deck and its pretty awesome. I lose one against Shaman who lived with 1 health. I mulligan the equality that would have beat all his taunts at the ends. This is by far the most OP deck I have tried (Mid Budget Agro Mage, Hunter, lock, and mid budget control warrior). These were the results of the 10 games. Mostof them weren't even close either.

1) Win-Druid 2) Win-Paladin 3) Win-Hunter 4) Win-Warlock 5) Win-Druid 6) Win-Priest 7) Loss-Shaman 8) Win-Mage 9) Win-Hunter 10) Win-Mage

Thank you very much for your kind words. We do our best to give you useful (and sometimes even enjoyable) decks. Good luck in the future!

Greetings Earthlings! I just crafted Ragnaors the Firelord and he's awesome. So I was wondering if it would be smart to put him in this deck and if so, what card to trade out?

Greetings, Mike!

Ragnaros the Firelord indeed is awesome and one of the best legendaries in mid-range / control style decks. This, however, is an aggressive deck and with the exception of Avenging Wrath (which is partially considered a finisher or late game board wipe with Equality) your entire deck follows an extremely aggressive mana curve, which fuels your aggressive play style.

Ragnaros will mess up your mana curve and often stay a dead card in your hand through out early stages of the match which will delay you for no reason. Despite the big impact Ragnaros has, it simply doesn't fit in aggressive decks.

Gz on Raggy,

Hope this helps

Hi there! I only have one Avenging Wrath? What's a card you'd suggest I swap this out for? Thanks!

Hey, Anabell

You can put in an additional Elven Archer if you are often playing against other aggro decks, however my general advice would be running with at least 1 Ironbeak Owl in your maindeck to bypass taunters when going in for the kill.

      Anton "Dvck" Lund found his way out of a jam on the ladder. Can you?
      Dvck and Aleco discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup.
      The player interviews I've done with RayC and TerrenceM have been some of the most fun and informative episodes of "What's the Move?", so I was very excited when Anton "Dvck" Lund reached out to me via reddit with a play from a recent game of his. Playing as Combo Dragon Priest, Dvck was able to find his way out of a tough spot against Murloc Paladin. Can you do the same?
      In this week's episode, Dvck and I discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup. For what ended up being a relatively short episode by "WTM" standards, I was pleasantly surprised by how much we were able to break down together so quickly. The interview with Dvck was as fun as it was informative, so I hope to have him back on the show soon! If you're interested in watching some high-legend gameplay, be sure to tune into Dvck's stream on twitch.tv.
      You can look forward to a few more episodes about the Hearthstone World Championships in the coming weeks, but I always welcome submissions and suggestions for future episodes. Did you have a favorite play from the world championships? Feel free to link me the VOD here on Icy Veins or send me a message on twitter @Aleco_P.
      Thanks for watching!

      Kolento and ShtanUdachi found themselves in nearly identical situations at the world championships - but did they make the same decisions?
      Episode 14 of "What's the Move?" discusses the importance of being mana efficient in the early game, as well as the relationship between speed and value.

      The Hearthstone World Championships were full of incredible plays, sticky situations, and valuable lessons to be learned from the best players on the planet. There were far too many great plays to analyze in a single video, so for the next few episodes of "What's the Move?" I'll be breaking down all of my favorite plays from the World Championship weekend.
      To kick things off we have a pair of Tempo Rogue vs. Highlander Priest matchups featuring Kolento and ShtanUdachi. Both players drew nearly identical opening hands, but did they did make same decisions?
      If you managed to spot a particularly tricky or interesting play from the recent World Championships, please feel free to link it in the comment section below! I'd love to break down as many viewer-submitted topics as I can in the coming weeks and months, and I have little doubt that I may have missed some of the most fascinating plays from the tournament during my initial viewing.
      Wishing you all the best of luck in the post-nerf meta!

      Welcome to the post-Corridor Creeper meta.
      Hearthstone Update 10.2 is now live worldwide and it's a big one!
      The first change it brings are the nerfs to four cards that have terrorised dominated the meta up until now. Bonemare now costs 8 mana, Patches the Pirate no longer has Charge, Raza the Chained makes the Hero Power cost (1) instead of (0) and Corridor Creeper has been butchered down to 2 attack. You can read Aleco's interesting opinion piece on Blizzard's nerf policy here.
      The second big addition of this patch is the Ranked Play update, which will take effect on March 2018. Players will now drop only 4 ranks with each monthly reset, all ranks will have 5 stars and you will only need to win 5 Ranked games to earn the monthly card back.
      The Year of the Mammoth Bundle is also finally available on the Shop. For $19.99 or 19.99 EUR, you can get 30 packs - 10 for each of the Year of the Mammoth expansions (Un'Goro, KFT, K&C). Don't forget that the Quest for Packs event is still ongoing and an addition has been made to the grand prize winner reward: $1.200 (read here for more info)!
      Lastly, the patch introduces the Wildfest event. From February 19 to March 11, Hearthstone is going Wild! Initially, you will be able to draft cards in Arena mode that are exclusive to Wild. Second, even though Tavern Brawl is usually on Wild format, there will be two special Wild Brawls. The first one is called "Venture Into the Wild" and it will just contain premade Wild decks for each class. The second one, "The Wild Brawlisseum", is basically a Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl, but with a major improvement: the first run will be free for everyone. You can read more about Wildfest here.
      Below you can read the patch notes, which describe all the updates as well as various bug fixes. A massive change is that the timer for the first two turns will now be shorter!

      Bug Fixes & Updates Gameplay
      The turn timer for the first two turns of a match are now shorter, though they should still be significantly longer than most players take on those turns.

Fixed an issue that could cause Hearthstone to freeze when a spectated player disconnects and their opponent concedes. Tooltips for Hero Cards now appear correctly when spectating. Resolved a crash that could occur when drawing a Darkness Candle spell after The Darkness is no longer dormant. Grand Archivist can now correctly cast the Darkness Candle spell if it is present in a player’s deck. Resolved a crash that could occur when certain cost reducing cards were played. Resolved an unintended interaction that could occur with Anomalus, Taunt minions, and Commanding Shout. Added missing Collection Manager tooltips to several cards. Resolved an issue that could cause a player to become stuck when reconnecting before the first turn.

Resolved an issue that would allow the Friends menu to remain active while a Friendly Challenge is active. Fixed various minor visual and text issues. Dungeon Run & Adventures

      Resolved an issue with the Collection Manager that could allow the set filter to be interacted with behind the “Done” button. Scrolling through an Arena deck on a mobile device will no longer generate unnecessary prompts. The “Back” button will now function correctly after an Arena run is complete. History tiles that were queueing up while viewing a history event now populate correctly. Resolved an issue that could cause crafted cards to remain visible over the Collection Manager.

      According to the Principal Game Designer, Cubelock isn't as powerful as it seems.
      Cubelock won't be touched in the upcoming balance changes which, for many people, is a sign that the deck will completely dominate the meta after said changes become active.
      The deck is already prominent enough that people have started making false claims about it. A Reddit user claimed that he faced 17 Cubelocks in a row! However, Mike Donais put the matter into place by saying that there was no such streak in Blizzard's internal data and that Cubelock is currently the 12th best deck.
      He subsequently explained that he expects the deck to rise after the nerfs, but he's not too worried because it's a challenging (and expensive, I would add) deck to master. If the team feels that Cubelock is too powerful, though, they will evaluate it.
      mdonais
      I just checked the data, and no one played 17 cubelocks in a row today.
      If you are indeed having trouble with Cubelock there are several decks that beat it consistently right now. It is currently the 12th best deck.
      I did enjoy the title of your post though. (source)
       
       
      A couple people asked why the stats I mentioned don't metch VS power ranking so I looked up VS 79 and across all rankings Control Warlock is the 10th best deck. I assume they mix control and cube warlock in their stats. We have decks broken out a bit more but 10th gives you the general idea.
      Obviously after the nurfs it will be stronger since none of the cards in cubelock are being nurfed and that concerns me but it is a pretty challenging deck with a lot of opportunities to show off player skill. People will eventually get better at playing it, but people will also put in more weapon destruction or silence cards if it gets more popular.
      I am excited to see what people figure out after the patch. If Warlock is a big problem after people have some time to adjust and tune the new decks then we will look into it. I have said many times before that win rate is not the most important factor in our nurf decisions. How people feel matters more, so we will listen to players and make decisions based on that, just like we did in the past with Quest Rogue and Patron Warrior. (source)
