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!

      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?
