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.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
