Hello,

 

There's a mistake in the "Card Swaps" section, in the first part: you say we can remove Earth Shock x2 against mages and add Earthen Ring Farseer x2, but the thing is we already have them in the deck.

Hello,

 

I just wanted to know if it's me who is playing this deck badly or if it's difficult to play, I wanted to know why I'm losing more with this deck than with the low cost version without Sylvanas, Earth Elementals...

 

Normally, my rivals manage to hit my hero many times in the first turns and I just try to keep my spells for more efficient "trades", I mean, for example if there's a 1/1 or 2/1 in the table I try to keep my lightning bolt so that I can use it later to kill another minion with is a little bit stronger (the same happens with the storm, I try to keep it until there are a few minions in the table and not just 2 or 3)... maybe that's what I'm doing wrong, but I'm not sure at all.

Also, I wanted to know why Windfury and Mana Tide Totem are not included within this deck, maybe because other cards are more important or because of something they're not good ideas?

Also, I just saw that you have made a few changes to the low-cost versions of this deck. I have the old deck with a few changes I made following the suggestions of one of the administrators of this website, I'll write down my deck because I feel like something can still be improved, though I think it's a pretty good deck:

 

Earth Shock x2

Lightning Bolt x2

Rockbitter Weapon x2

Stormforged Axe

Windfury x2

Flametongue Totem x2

Feral Spirit x2

Hex x2

Lightning Storm x2

Mana Tide Totem

Unbound Elemental x2

Defender of Argus x2

Leeroy Jenkins

Azure Drake x2

Gadgetzan Auctioneer

Argent Commander x2

Fire Elemental x2

 

I do not know whether to include a second Mana Tide Totem... but the problem is there are a few cards that could be included, but I do not know what to remove...

 

Also, I have a few legendaries (in case they're good for any of the versions, the low-cost aggro/control or the mid-cost control): Sylvanas (I asked you in another post which card could be a good substitution, but I just opened a pack and she appeared), illidan, Baron, Cairne, Gruul and Ragnaros.

 

Thank you very much in advance, this website is awesome and always helpful smile.png

Thank you for pointing that out. Fixed it, should be live soon :)

Hey, Josh

I think you should decide what tempo you wish to pursue. You have some nice cards in your collection and you could easily try to go for a control deck. If I remember correctly, you mentioned in another post that you also have a Faceless Manipulator, maybe you can try this deck and see if it works for you:
 

2 Earth Shock
2 Lightning Bolt
2 Rockbiter Weapon
1 Stormforged Axe
2 Feral Spirit
2 Hex
2 Lightning Storm
2 Manatide TOtem
2 Defender of Argus
2 Azure Drake
1 Gadgetzan Auctioneer
2 Fire Elemental
1 Cairne 
1 Ragnaros
1 Unbound Elemental
2 Argent Squire
2 Argent Commander
1 Faceless Manipulator

About using 2 Mana Tides - if you are playing a control shaman, you would normally use Nat Pagle and maybe 1 Mana Tide, but if you don't have Nat Pagle, 2x Mana Tide is perfect!

Hope this helps a bit :)

Take care, Josh,
Regards,
Poyo

      The Americas Spring Playoffs and Championship were played over the weekend of May 28-29.
      The new Americas Champion is Muzzy.  Muzzy has long been touted as one of the best ladder players in the world, but has previously not converted this into any big wins. He will go to the World Spring Championship in Shanghai in July, alongside DiegoDias, Ant, and Kuonet who rounded out the top four.
      The tournament was a grueling one, with many players bringing Control Decks, and some of the rounds of Swiss lasting over 3 hours. The archetypes brought by the top four are listed below:
        Muzzy: Control Paladin, Giant Miracle Rogue, Jade Shaman, Quest Warrior
        DiegoDias: Jade Druid, Murloc Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
        Ant: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
        Kuonet: Discover Mage, Control Paladin, Evolve Shaman, Quest Warrior
      As you can see, the meta seems to be healthy, with many viable options.
      Next week is the APAC Spring Playoffs, at which point all sixteen qualifiers for the World Spring Championship will have been decided.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      A new mini-series of funny shorts has started, and we already have 2 episodes out! Mulligans sees an ordinary guy complete the quests that everyday life throws his way with the help of some unusual friends: Uther, Jaina, and Gul’dan. See them battle printer problems and who gets to ride shotgun in the first two episodes:

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.
