Awesome basic deck , i had great success with this deck and love the new explanations and card swaps for those who unlocked the full naxxaramas adventure, since most of the new players decided to unlock the set first before going to arena smile.png when will this expand to the other basic decks in icy veins? thanks and keep up the good work smile.png

Hi Sottle!
Love your guides!
 

Just wanted to know your thoughts about Felguard.
Is it good?
If so, do you think it would be a good card swap / would it fit in this deck?
Thanks!

No, Felguard is awful. To understand why, imagine playing it on turn 3. It's cost you the 3 Mana you spent to play it in the first place, then 1 additional Mana for each turn up until you have 10. So if the game lasts that long, you've essentially played a 10 Mana 3/5.

Hey,

I built this deck and it's working pretty well for me. I recently got an Imp-losion from a pack, and I feel like it has good synergy with the Stormwind Champion and Frostwolf Warlord. What card would you recommend removing for it?

Thank you!

Nice basic deck maybe replace 1 crocolisk with 1 succubus and chage a soulfire for a drain life.
Succubus is really op dont care of the discard;
and drain life grant the possibility of one more life tap

Succubus is pretty weak, it just trades evenly with 3/2s, so there really isn't much benefit to it. Drain Life is just really overcosted for what it does. Life Gain effects shouldn't really be factored into a cards value, since they have no effect on the board, and minimal heals like Drain Life are pretty negligible.

Hy Sottle

I really like your Guides.

I've got the mage and warlock guide so far and I came pretty far.

 

I've got Lord Jaraxxus from a card pack and I put it in my Deck since I haven't get warlock to lvl 10.

What do you think i should trade him for?

 

And since I haven't all cards I put Voidwalker in. It saved my boardcontroll pretty often and I kind of like him in my playstyle.

Do you think i can put him in my deck?

And what do you think I can trade him?

 

(sorry for my bad english, I hope you understand it)

I think death's bite and haunted creeper are enough activators for execute.
So in that case I cut off Eleven archer for voodoo doctor.

Seems like an ommision not to have Azure Drake in the Card Swap section, as it seems like a great replacement for Gnomish Inventor. Thoughts?

 

It is a basic deck. There are way too many swaps to be included in a guide. And yes, you should swap Azure Drake for a Gnomish Inventor.

 

I think death's bite and haunted creeper are enough activators for execute.

Wrong thread my friend. However, Death's Bite and Haunted Creeper are enough activators for Execute. However, I think that Haunted Creeper should go in place of one archer and one Crocolisk or one Razorfen and DBs in place of Reapers. Running 6 weapons is a bit too much for a midrange/control because you will often not have a good target for a weapon hit and the weapons will clog up your hand. Aggro always has a target, so you go through the weapons quicker.

Thanks for the guide. I've aquired a couple Darkbombs, Which I hear are great for pretty much all Warlock decks. What do you think are the best cars to swap out for them.

I don't like Murloc Tidehunters and Razorfen Hunters, so either swap those or swap it for Shadow Bolt as it does basically the same.

Would there be any use for Kel'Thuzad/Thaurissan/Loatheb?  And/or Gurubashi?  

Overall, I was thinking take out gnomish for Azure, Yeti for Shredder, senjin for sludge... One boulderfist for argent commander (I got that as a drop, serves me wonderfully well usually), 

The only thing I'm noticing is that now I have 4-4s and 7-5s so the opposite problem as too many 4s! haha.  

I was wondering if perhaps I should drop one sludge for one senjin to even the curve out a little bit...

 

Also would Kel'thuzad would be a useful replacement with Stormwind if I swapped out Frostwolf with Loatheb?  I usually try to Loatheb to buy me time, belcher/Gurubashi/argent, then Kelthuzad if I'm lucky and then clear the board with trades and rezz them again.   I tend to find that people clear my minions out quite quickly lately, especially if I face a mage or a better-decked Warlock.

Loatheb in place of Frostwolf Warlord, KT in place of Champion, just as you list later in the comment (which I didn't read whole before replying :D ). Gurubashis in place of Murloc Tidehunters. I wouldn't really swap Commander and Boulderfist. Other swaps are good.

The curve doesn't look that strange after the swaps. No need to smooth it out. 

Now start building a Zoo deck, that would increase your winrate a lot.

I'm primarily focusing on building cards for mage and getting cards that work well across decks, so I'm mostly trying to work in what I have that makes the most sense.

 

I had already swapped out tidehunter for imp gang boss and creeper for croc and one hunter for the one Juggler I got from a pack...  I put in 2xgurubashi for the second hunter and the warlord... I think I would rather do 1 gurubashi and a Loatheb and KT for champion because gurubashi can sometimes just fail really hard and those two are much more reliable/consistent. 

 

I just started around Thanksgiving, so trying to work around my limited thing is both fun and confusing! :)

I modded the(basic warlock) deck, i switched the murloc tide hunter for target dummy, acidic swamp ooz for blood imp, and river crocolisk for voidwalker. That setup is running me about 3/5 win to loss, the original is running me at 1/5

Target Dummy does absolutely nothing. My winrate with this deck was 91% (10 wins / 1 loss). Blood Imp is not a strong card, especially not against aggressive decks. Crocolisk for Voidwalker is somewhat acceptable.

Any suggestions for a newer player who has only purchased packs for Gadgetzan and Classic?

There are a ton of improvements that can be done with Gadgetzan and Classic cards, and I don't think I should be listing all of them. You could put Abyssal Enforcers in place of Hellfires, Faerie Dragons in place of Murloc Tidehunters, Azure Drakes in place of Gnomish Inventors, or a Mistress of Mixtures in place of one Razorfen Hunter, but those are just some of the swaps that you could do. I suggest asking about specific cards.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)
      Spreading Plague now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
