Is Illidan still so bad with the Spare Parts going on with GvG? (except vs AOE)

The low Health is still a pretty big problem, and as you said, any eventual board you create is going to be weak to AoE.

However, should be said that exactly the same counts for violet teacher, which is considered fine if you can create a minion with her.

Both have decent minion value, Illidan's drops are stronger, and if the enemy uses AOE he might not be able to finish Stormrage on the same turn.

Violet Teacher costs 4, most cards that can deal 5 damage are around that same cost, or more, so if it dies to 5 damage, you haven't really lost anything in terms of tempo. Illidan being more expensive, means that it can too easily be dealt with by cheaper cards, giving your opponent initiative to come back.

Mogor will not see play in high level contructed, so yes you can disenchant it if you like.

I just opened a pack that had a gold Black Knight. I noticed that he isn't being played in as many decks as Sylvanas or Dr. Boom. Would you recommend disenchanting for either of these two cards? Or do you think he is powerful enough to see play in future decks? Thanks.

If you don't have a strong collection already, I think it's pretty greedy to keep any Golden cards. You might want to consider crafting several Epics and Rares with the dust instead of one Legendary though, it will generally have a stronger impact overall.

Hi, I just opened up a normal troggzor out of a pack. My only other legendary that I have is Ysera. (The others I have disenchanted because King Krushx2, Flame Leviathan and Nozdurmu) Should I keep him? My collection of rares and epics is pretty small aswell.

Yes, you should probably disenchant. If Boom gets nerfed then Troggzor might see some play later, but there is no Boom nerf in sight.

Did anyone ever experience a bug where Kel'Thuzad only resurrects minions that die in your own turn? It is supposed to happen on every turn, right? Also the enemy's turn? And a killed sludgebelcher while the little slime stays alive should come back as a sludgebelcher, no?

Your Slude Belcher was probably killed by an end-of-turn-effect that triggered after kel-thuzad's effect (ragnaros / geddon)?

Is Illidan at least an OK card in demonlock? He`s my first legendary so I don`t want to disenchant him.

He is OK or rather slightly below average. He is good only if you can get him out of Voidcaller. On his own, he is not that great, but if you don't want to disenchant him, I guess you could include him in a demonlock deck.

Hello, I have just pulled out Hogger. Should I disenchant? 

 

Honestly I would like to build a deck to make it play, I feel very very bad to disenchant a legendary for only 400 dusts.

Hogger is sometimes used in specific enviroments, but not particularly often. The dust might be more valuable to you, but it's up to you.

If you have all the cards you need for your decks, keep it. If you still need some cards, disenchant it, because Deathwing isn't used in many decks.

There's no reason to ever play Grand Crusader, right?  Page says its useless but it's still listed on a few decks that don't already play Thaurissan or Sylvannas so I'm getting mixed messages here.

The card is used in Tempo Mage as an alternative to drawing cards. Quite a lot of Paladin class cards are spells and most of them are cheap spells that work well with the deck. However, it is basically useless in any other deck.

Wouldn't Ethereal Conjurer play that role better?  Different cardpool and a few more underwhelming cards but the choice of 3 can make up for that, and its cheaper, even if it has lower value on the board.

His minion value is just awful. Most decks will be able to get rid of him for 2 mana, that means you spent 3 mana to discover a spell.

Grand Crusader is not only used for spells, but also minions to keep you going.

      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.

      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.
