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.

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,

      Winter Veil begins next week on Hearthstone and a special Tavern Brawl will award three Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs.
      Next week's Tavern Brawl will be really similar to the Gift Exchange one back from 2015 and February 2017. There will be some differences though, as the Brawl will have a Kobold flavour and it will have a new name: Wacky Waxy Winter Veil's Brawl.
      As Winter Veil is a frosty season, the reward will obviously be three packs from Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion. It's not sure if the Winter Veil Wreath card back, which was associated with the Gift Exchange brawl during the previous years' Winter Veils, will be available this time to those who don't already have it.
      For now, you can enjoy this week's Tavern Brawl, which is Valeera's Bag of Burgled Spells.

      Can you find the best move in a deck full of cards from the new set?
      The first episode of WTM since the release of Kobolds & Catacombs, Aleco plays a "Big Spells Dragon Priest" deck full of brand of new cards.
      Kobolds and Catacombs has hit the competitive ladder with a bang, bringing it with it an unprecedented number of impactful new cards. Some cards have come as huge surprises (Spiteful Summoner, Corridor Creeper), others have been performing about as well as expected (Duskbreaker, Twilight Acolyte), and all four of these powerful new KnC cards are featured in the deck I've had the most success with over the past four days - Sattelite's Big Spells Dragon Priest. The deck has a ton of play to it and never fails to produce difficult decisions and interesting situations, such as the one I found myself in here:
      "What's the Move?" is now seeking viewer submissions for the future episodes. If you ever find yourself in a sticky situation on the ladder, please feel free to submit your plays, questions, and feedback to Aleco on twitter.

      Muzahidul "Muzzy" Islam is the newest member of Tempo Storm's Hearthstone roster.
      Tempo Storm have signed Muzzy, one of the most consistent players out there. His ladder performance has been impressive: you can find Muzzy's name near the top every month at the Americas Legend rankings. Moreover, he has been the top HCT points earner in both 2016 and 2017.
      His hard work has secured him a spot in the upcoming HCT World Championship as the Americas Last Call player. Muzzy has been around for a while, but 2017 was definitely his best year when it comes to tournaments. Some of his achievements this year include winning Dreamhack Montreal and being the Americas Spring Champion. Lastly, Muzzy was part of Team LUL, along with Zalae and Chakki, who recently won Season 2 of Trinity Series.
      We wish Muzzy and his new team, Tempo Storm, the very best of luck!
