Gadgetzan Jouster is actually better than Zombie Chow for control decks, such as ramp druid and control warrior. Since the chance that you take the other Jouster from your deck is really, really small, it will be always a 2/3 against aggro (the reason you would add Zombie Chow in your deck). But, contrary to Chow, he is not a dead card in your hand if you draw it late. For this reason, adding two of it is not counter-productive as is adding two Zombie Chows.

Nope.

 

If you do the maths, you'll see that a high curve control deck only wins a joust with between 60 and 70% consistency against even a deck like Hybrid Hunter which is essentially just aggression with a couple of Highmanes thrown in.

 

Even taking the extreme example of outright Control Warrior vs outright Face Hunter you're still only 80% favoured. Why take the risk? Their health is not a relevant part of the win condition, only yours is, and playing a 1/2 on turn 1 is just going to get you killed.

 

Even worse when you start to scale things down further, if you're playing a Control deck vs a Midrange deck like Mid Pally, you're now only 50-55% favoured. That's awful! What happens when you play your turn 1 1/2, and they respond with a 2/3 Chow. I'll tell you what, you lose the board straight away and probably lose the game.

 

Not worth the risk, just play Chow.

Clockwork Gnome's description refers to Spare parts has "another 1-mana card that can be played with Undertaker"... Undertaker only triggers when you play minions, not spells. You could mention that legendary card that gives a Mech every time you play a 1-mana spell.

Thanks. I have no idea what I was even thinking when I wrote that, but obviously Undertaker is not what I meant. Surprised someone hasn't caught that already. Thank you!

You wrote, "Young Dragonhawk is very really seen in Constructed". I think you meant that it is very rarely seen in Constructed. Anyway, thanks for the great work!

In the Arena section of Arcane Anomaly:
"Having some 1 Mana minions in your deck can be important to be allow you to take the initiative"
Some work needs to be done on that part of the sentence, I'm not sure what, but it's difficult to read.

Murloc Tidecaller's and Grimscale Oracle's images still have the old text. I'm not sure if their description should be changed considering the new effects and the potential upcoming Murloc support, but the images should definitely be changed to have the new text.

The link for Patches the Pirate is incorrect. The correct link is http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/cards/neutral/patches-the-pirate

(EDIT: The same issue seems to go for all neutral MSG legendaries. It looks to me that most have pages now, but I can only get to them by editing the URL in my browser's address bar.)

Thank you for pointing that out. We will get that fixed as soon as possible.

update??

If you mean Small-Time Buccaneer, the description is up-to-date. The tooltip is sadly provided by a third party, so we have to wait until it gets updated. We apologize for the inconvenience.

      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.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
