Hi !

 

Thanks for all those guides, it helps really much!

 

I tested this deck for a 20 days~ and I ended up rank 6.

 

I haven't Sylvanas nor Big Game Hunter, so I use Ragnaros & Assassinate.

 

So far I really like the deck but I feel really weak against some decks, especially OTK Rogue & some Mages. I feels like it's really hard to win past 9 turn against Mages and some stall very good during the early stage and I can't reach them.

 

Some Hunters are really annoying too with Unleash The Dog. If I didn't get the right start up hand It's really hard for me to handle their combo, any advice ?

 

I don't encounter alot of Taunt Monsters too, and when they're out, I usually get rid of them with eviscerate and my others spells while my minions hit the Hero HP.

 

So I wonder if there is no better choice instead of Dark Knight. I'm thinking about The Beast or Cairne. The first one is a really strong hitter while the other got some good board control. What do you think guys?

Hey, Kayin

Regardless of which deck you pick, you will always find your "nightmare matchup" - a deck that you will always suffer playing against, however as long as your overall win ratio is above 50%, you are playing a deck that can progress further.

Your choice to swap Sylvanas and Big Game Hunter for Raggy and Assassinate is great, however Ragnaros might be a bit slow in an aggressive deck, but still an outstanding finisher.

Regarding Hunters, play aggressively against them and each play you make, think what will happen if your opponent "Unleashes the Dog" next turn :) You will find Defender of Argus being one of your favorite cards in this matchup. Also, you should always prioritize trading minions with whatever hunter has on the board - keep your offense small but efficient and save your spells as finishers (DP / evis etc...)

Dark Knight in my opinion is currently one of the best legendaries. Mages and Hunters will often have no taunters and in such situations, DK is pretty worthless, but majority of the decks play Defender of Argus and DK wins games against those decks. Its value is insane. 

I would advise against The Beast, I personally think its a horrible card in constructed and arena, while Cairne could work - its pretty slow and generally played in control decks, but since you already have Raggy and seem to have shifted towards better late game, Cairne will have pretty decent value.

Hope this helps, 
Regards,
Poyo

Poyo himself replying, I couldn't expect better.

 

Thanks alot for your time here.

 

When i'll get the right amount of dust, i'll test Sylvanas, but it's out of my budget for now...:/

 

Thanks for your advices against Hunters, i'll try it this way.

 

I'll try to get Sylvanas and I will test it without Ragnaros to see the difference. I'll listen to you and pass up on The Beast. I'll come again in a month I think, the time to really see the change between Rag and Sylv!

 

It helped,

Thanks alot,

Kayin.

Hi, I've been running this deck for about a week now, and I've gotten myself stuck around rank 13. It's been about 3 days of bouncing between 12 and 14 but the deck seems to be losing it's consistency. I've tried replacing the argent squires with shadow steps bc they work well with the agents and the charge this deck has. After reading the comments above I think I will try replacing bghunter with Assasinate for a little more versatility, however, I can't shake the feeling I'm not using bghunter properly a 4-2 minion can be really handy, but I find he sits in my hand for most matches. Furthermore I'm ready to replace Sylvannas with a cold blood at this point, she is an awesome card, but extremely hit or miss with this deck, but most of all she seems slow, unfortunately I don't have one, but I think at 6 mana Carin would be better. For now I'm going to run this deck without Sylvannas to try and introduce a little more speed. I'll let you know how it turns out, any advice you could pass along concerning this deck would be awesome.

I'd just like to add that I know that a lot of the of upsets this deck has been a result of bad draws on the 1st turn, and nearly all losses are pretty close, finally I just might not make the right decisions, every match is different and rank 13 may be all I'm capable of. However, I hope it's not, I've been playing since the open beta and I'm pretty sure I'm not a pushover.

Deck is definitely a lot of fun to play!

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.

      Two new cards from Rastakhan's Rumble were revealed in an official blog post detailing the story of the upcoming expansion.
      The first card revealed is a neutral Pirate:

      It's important to clarify that the Overkill effect triggers only on your turn (ie. when you attack and not when you are attacked) and this minion will draw you cards even if it dies as long as you Overkill something. Other than that, it feels slow for an aggro Pirate deck and its low Health means it can be killed easily. Perhaps it could make for a decent Arena card.
      The awesomely named second card of the day is Heavy Metal!

      Here is a spell with the Geosculptor Yip effect, at a reduced cost and minus the body. Interestingly enough, this card would have been better if it costed 5 or 7 mana since it would fit in Odd Warrior, a deck that heavily utilises armoring up. Even Warrior might become a thing in the future, but still with Yip never really having caught on, it's really hard to see this card fit into any Warrior deck.
      The blog post itself is interesting, since it gives an introduction to the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. We see Rikkar - the aspiring Troll champion, who is also the protagonist of the Rumble Run - entering the Gurubashi Arena and trying to pick which team he is going to side with. The Tigers - the Paladin team - are described as the returning champions of Rastakhan's Rumble. We are eager to see what's next for this expansion!

      The Hearthstone subreddit interviewed Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden on the upcoming Rastakhan's Rumble expansion.
      You can read the entire interview here.
      Interview Highlights
      Rastakhan's Rumble has been in development for almost a year, from January 2018. Spirits will be appearing in the Arena. We won't see much of old Keywords in Rastakhan's Rumble, but they are open to revisiting them (Hero and highlander cards, Inspire and C'Thun were mentioned). One of the design lessons Team 5 has learned is that they want more build-around cards that have cheap rarity (like the Spirits). With Rastakhan's Rumble, they wanted classes to feel like a team. Captain Hooktusk, the Rogue champion, is an original Hearthstone character. Pirates are mostly in Rogue in this expansion. They are still pretty aggressive, but there are some more expensive pirates in this set.

      The reveal season for Rastakhan's Rumble starts with a Paladin card.
      Every recent Hearthstone expansion has had its own series of funny blog posts and videos. Blizzard collaborated with Wronchi in The Boomsday Project and now they are back for Rastakhan's Rumble.
      Hearthstone's heroes are waiting in line to get tickets to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Everyone has the gold for it, except from poor (literally) Uther. He does get a card reveal though and the story will be continued from what was teased in the end.

      People have been comparing this card to Evasion and Ice Block. It certainly has it pros and cons. You can play it proactively, even at high health and you can combine it perfectly with a weapon swing or powerful healing spells. On the other hand, Time Out! requires more setting-up and better game knowledge of what cards your opponent might have on his/her hand. This card could potentially go into a Control Paladin deck, along with Shirvallah, the Tiger legendary Loa minion.
      What do you think?
