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,

      A new series of posts in the official forums will shed some light into the inner workings of the Hearthstone team. Welcome to Tavern Talk!
      In this first installment, three questions are answered. The first has to do with additional rewards for players who have earned a Golden Hero with every class. Unfortunately, no extra rewards are planned since the team wants new features or rewards to be obtainable by 10% or more of the playerbase.
      Then, we have an update on the new player experience. Team 5 wants to add additional ranks above rank 25 for new players, so they can mostly face each other in their first steps in the ranked ladder. You will be able to only progress forward in these ranks, similarly to what already happens from rank 25 to 20.
      Lastly, we have a double question about using alternate card art and reprinting cards. The team doesn't like the idea of alternate card art, since it makes sense that players associate and remember a specific card from its art. Reprinting cards is something that has been discussed already and it's something they might do in the not-so-near future after careful consideration.

      Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the tavern? Ava and the crew’s antics aside, the Hearthstone development team works hard on a myriad of tasks to bring you the game you know and love so well. More than that, we also make the time to read about the different issues and questions the community brings to light each day. Welcome to Hearthstone Tavern Talk, where we’ll share with you answers to some of the questions we see in our community!
      Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?
      Usually when we add new features or rewards we like to make something that can be obtained by 10% or more of our players. Only very few of our players have the 9 Golden Heroes, and we feel that’s already pretty awesome by itself.
      Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience?
      We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
      What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?
      Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card.
      Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
      See you at the next edition of Hearthstone Tavern Talk!

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!
