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.

      Blizzard have announced that the next Hearthstone year will be called The Year of the Mammoth. Six cards from the Classic set will be moved to a new Hall of Fame set, which can only be played in Wild.
      The announcement explains that the new Hall of Fame set will include cards that are currently in the Reward set, but the big news here is the six cards that will be leaving Standard. You can see Blizzard's reasons on the link above, but I've given a few notes in this article. Those cards are shown below.
      As well as the removed cards, there will be no adventures in 2017. Instead we will be given three full expansions that will be accompanied by a single-player mission, which will be used to enhance flavour, and offer challenges. This sounds like it will be along the lines of an adventure, but optional. I feel this is a great change, as it hurts nobody.

      Azure Drake is simply in too many decks. It is a hard card to nerf without making it weak, but it is pretty much as powerful as a 5-drop can be. Removing this to free up other 5-drops makes sense.

      The reasoning for Sylvanas is similar. Blizzard's words make a lot of sense on this one, and also give an insight into the future:
      Blizzard
      Similar to Azure Drake, it’s hard to see a card at the six mana cost out-value Sylvanas. In addition, Sylvanas has the most powerful Deathrattle effect in the game—as a comparison, the Priest card Mind Control costs 10 mana. We have exciting Deathrattle build-arounds coming soon, and in combination with Sylvanas, they would be too powerful for Standard. This seems to imply that N'Zoth, the Corruptor will be making a big comeback soon!

      I suspect a lot of people will be glad to see the back of Ragnaros. The Random element was often a contentious issue.

      The removal of Power Overwhelming is a bit of a surprise, but it seems that it has mainly been nerfed because of its strength in combinaton with cards like Leeroy Jenkins and Faceless Manipulator. I would also assume that Warlock is going to be getting some fun new toys to replace it.

      Ice Lance has been removed to remove Freeze Mage and allow new strategies to develop. It is also interesting that Blizzard mention it will allow them to make cards that copy cards. That could also apply to Power Overwhelming, so I would expect something along those lines to be in the next set.

      Conceal leaving will make sense to everyone. It allows Gadgetzan Auctioneer to survive as an interesting card, and removes the annoyance of not being able to interact with your opponent.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is called Blood Magic. It is the 88th Tavern Brawl.
      Blood Magic has a simple enough concept, which is that all spells cost Health instead of Mana. This could lead to an interesting metagame where healing is premium, and expensive burn spells are used to finish your opponent. Violet Illusionist is a key card in this Brawl, it allows the burn finish to only kill your opponent and not yourself. I expect to see it a lot over the coming days. 
      This is the third constructed Brawl in a row. It is an interesting Brawl to me, as I have felt that Blizzard have been trying to push this mechanic slowly on us over the last few expansions, but are terrified of it. In other card games, paying Health for cards has often been a broken mechanic, and I feel this might be a test to see how far they can push it.
      As always, feel free to leave your own lists in the comments.

      Blizzard have ended speculation as to the fate of Small-Time Buccaneer by announcing nerfs that will be active with Update 7.1. The ladder system will also see a small change.
      The changes were outlined by Blizzard in a Reddit post, and they should shift the metagame significantly.
      The big, although expected, news is that Small-Time Buccaneer will be nerfed to become a 1/1 rather than a 1/2. This puts it into turn 2 ping range and should stop the card getting out of control. It remains to be seen if it will still be playable considering it will still fetch patches, and still trade one Mana for two Mana in a lot of early game situations.
      Spirit Claws also sees a change, and although expected by many, was a minor surprise to me as Blizzard generally dislike messing with cards from adventures. The cost of the card has been raised from 1 Mana to 2 Mana. This might seem like a minor change, but the implications are huge. It will be very awkward in the early game with Bloodmage Thalnos and Wrath of Air Totem, and it will almost certainly see far less play after the update. 
      The ladder changes feel like Blizzard dipping their toe in the water, rather than a full on change. There will now be a series of Ranked Play floors, which are ranks that you can't de-rank below within a season. Those ranks are 5,10, and 15. This should help a little with ladder anxiety for many people.
      No date has been confirmed for the patch yet, but it seems likely that it will not be before the APAC Playoffs which end on February 25.
      Overall I feel that the changes are good. There will be chance for more sweeping changes when the new expansion hits later in the year, but these should tide us over in the meantime. Reno Jackson decks will be the obvious beneficiaries of the changes, but this means that Jade decks will be stronger. It will be fun to see where the meta settles down.
