This Deck honestly is very bad IMO or maybe I am using it wrong but anytime you are against rogues, mages, hunters you get wiped I was using my own deck got to rank 18 this Deck I am stuck on 17.  The problems I see is ether you have not enough taunts and not enough minion it seemed to me and the legend cards help but some not really. Sooo any suggestion? 

Hey, Daniel,

This deck should work all the way up to legend, however there are some decks that will always cause you problems when playing against them. The deck is extremely aggressive - you should always try to put as much pressure on your opponent in early game and make up the card advantage with your Divine Favor. It always comes down to making the best possible choice with the minions you have on the board. Next time you play against a hunter, have this at the back of your mind: "What will happen next turn if my opponent plays Unleash the Hounds". 

As soon as you start including taunters in this deck it will become stronger against any hunter deck, but the whole theme of the deck and its aggression will be diminished which will make it substantially worse against control decks and other non-hunter decks.

I suggest that you analyze your lost games and see if any play that you have made would influence the outcome if you played it differently.

Best of luck

Are you guys upgrading this? for the month of April?

Yes, the decks are updated based on the metagame changes. The deck works, however you really need to keep an eye out on Hunter decks as they are your nightmare matchup. Make sure you don't overextend on the board and you should have no problems dealing with hunters.

Thanks, this deck works really well so far, winning most games at ranks 12-8.

Very happy to hear that!

Card swap mentions an including "an additional Elven Archer".  Deck list doesn't include the first one.

Let me know if my nitpicking gets annoying.

Is there a good swap if you can't afford to make the final Avenging Wrath card?  A good replacement while winning enough to get the last bit of dust needed, lol

Hi, I don't understand some things, I suppose there is no Knife Juggler cause it depends on other creatures and we don't want to play some creature card we need to protect or something like that, but... Why Wolf Rider and not Arcane Golem? AG seems better as a removal and as a finisher specially late game when that mana crystal is nothing.

Yes, but up until the endgame, it will be the worst card ever in your hand, whilst Wolfrider can always clear pretty serious threaths.

I read the description of this deck and thought wow, sounds pretty cool and strong. Especially the Equality combos sounded great. So I built this deck and dreamed about dominating the opponent with my agressive playstyle. So far so good.

 

I first tried the deck against the expert mage AI in practice mode. It took me 4 games to win my first match. That was pretty disillusioning. But I thought it was all about bad luck on my draws.

Yesterday I tried some ranking matches and won just 2 out of 6 (Lepra gnome level). Now it got damn disillusioning and I wonder if I'm playing it not agressive enough, if I lack the experience to play it properly or if i just had bad luck on the draws.

 

• I swaped the expensive cards at start to hopefully get cheaper ones to start rushing from the beginning

• I built up early pressure with my 1–3 mana Minions

• Most of the time I lost my board until turn 3 or 4 because of the low health of the cheaper rush minions (but I thought that's okay, if I get more minions or spells on my hand the next turns to keep up the pressure)

Abusive Sergeant

• At turn 4 most of my opponents started to play minions with 4 or more health and I got problems to counter it (not enough minions on the board, no damage spells in my hand, no Equality in my hand, in the worst case not enough or no cards in my hand and also no Divine Favor to change that)

• There was a time where I had to Divine Favor on my hand but ended up with way more cards as my opponent, with little to no possability to get rid of them (most of my cards were to expensive at that level of the match or wouldn't have made an effect on the battlefield)

• Most of the time it got worse with more enemy minions on the board every turn. Eventualy I got Consecration on my hand but hey, the enemy minions all have 3 or more live. Still no Equality in my hand. Or i got Equality in my hand but no minions or Consecration to use the advantage. When I waited another turn, the pressure on me often was that high, that it got critical. And surprise, still no Equality in the next turns draw.

King Mukla seldom gets in my hand in the turns 1–3 so I can use his advantage of low cost and high attack and durability for that early stage of play. If I play him later, the opponent most of the time has some minions, wich he can buff with the bananas to easily take him out right away.

• I often have to play Avenging Wrath without Equality to get rid of the threatening enemy minions. And often enough Avenging Wrath doesnt kill his entire board or with some bad luck there remain most of his minions on the board.

 

Is this just bad draw luck?

Don't I play agressive enough?

Should I ignore his minions if I cant wipe them out directly and just focus on him to try to wipe him out before his minions do the same to me?

Don't I read the opponents play good enough?

 

I really need help with this deck or I have to abandon it. sad.png

Sorry, i forgot to finish my statement about the Abusive Sergeant.

I seldom have a minion on the beoard wich he can buff to attack and the sergenant dies most of the time before he can attack in the next turn.

Have you been mulliganing (is that a word?) your equality every game? I've been doing better by keeping it. even if you don't get consecration, with your hero power built up and cheap minions you could clear the board or take off some pressure.

 

I've been having trouble with king mukla. His bannanas usually give me more trouble than he benefits me. I hardly ever get to attack with him because he gets taken out on the next turn. I think I may be playing him too early. Is he like arcane golems in the sense that he should be played late game? I also took out 1 murloc and traded him for Ragnaros the fire lord, any thoughts (good or bad trade?)

No, I kept Equality always in my Hand when I got it. I just had the Problem that there weren't any minion of me left to clear the board and my heropower normaly was eliminated the turn after I used it. Or I got the minions but no Equality. I usualy waited until the opponent had 2–3 minions on board to get a greater advantage. But then I often was without any damage spell wich hits multiple targets or any minions wich could have used the advantage.

 

Maybe my expectation of the deck was just to high and I expected to win all but a few games with it instantly. Then the reality hit me even harder.

 

If you have any advice to play this deck more effective, feel free to let me know your opinion. I just started playing Hearthstone a few weeks ago and I'm pretty sure that there is still much to learn.

My advice, which may seem obvious but may not, is to focus on attacking the enemy hero as often as possible. Since this is an aggro deck, you want to win quickly or else you will trail off. Let the other player deal with your minions, but try to get as much damage sent the enemy hero's way as possible.

This deck works fine for me. I removed one wolf raider with a tinkmaster. The tinkmaster is so useful, such as +4/4 buffer or keep you minions with the same... taunt remover if there is only one taunt.. lower  a strong minions to 5/5 or 1/1.

 

if you didnt get your mukla in 1-3 round, then keep it with combo with divine favor, you can have two more draws and a 5/5 minions

      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!

      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)
