Hey,

 

I'm really enjoying this deck.  It's so much fun!  I've gone 6-3 so far, and the games don't take nearly as long as Control Warrior, which is nice.  I was wondering if you're going to swap out Lil' Exorcist now that Undertaker has been nerfed.  And if so, what would you recommend running instead?

Hello and thanks for your good work on all the decks.

Can you suggest a replacement for the Bolvar Fordragon? I have the other legendaries, but just not that one. Thanks

Thanks for this deck.

 

I had good success with the mid budget version and now trying this one out. I don't have Sylvanus, however, so substituted it with a second Quartermaster (like the mid-budge one has). It's been working well so far, but my question is what would be a good sub for Sylvanus till I get it. A second Quartermaster or Loatheb (cards that are in the mid-budget version) or something else? 

 

Thanks.

Thanks for the last comment, Sottle.

 

Another question -- what is the best way to use Acolyte of Pain? Nothing is mentioned in the deck guide and I find it oftens only survives long enough to draw 1 card. Is there an optimum way to play Acolyte to get more draw power? 

 

Thanks.

It's usually better late than it is early, you want to look out for situations where you can get it on the board and then Aldor a minion to get multiple draws. Against some decks it's really strong on turn 2 or 3 though, if they open with Zombie Chow or something similar.

Question: Is it worth replacing Acolyte of Pain with the new BRF card Solemn Vigil? Just wondering since it means a guaranteed 2 extra cards for potentially less than 3 mana (depending on how many minions are killed, which should be high in a control deck) compared with only a potential 0-3 (if the acolyte is destroyed without taking damage or is silenced, for example)?

Oooh, that Aldor combo sounds like a nice trick. Will watch out for those situations.

Yep, definitely worth a try, haven't had a chance to fully test it myself, but I can see it being good.

unreal deck mate, followed it to the letter and I haven't lost a game yet (7 in a row).

I little tough against those pesky zoo decks if you don't draw right, but still an amazing deck, so thank you!

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
