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!

      This week's episode features a fresh take on a popular deck, courtesy of Casie.
      Can you guess the next move?
      Situation #22: Let's Even the Odds
      Picking up where we left off last week, we find ourselves in the middle of an odd/even matchup between Warlock and Shaman. I picked this situation partially because it was an interesting spot with many options available to us, and also because its a ladder situation I highly doubt any of my readers have encountered before:

      Commenters quickly identified several key factors about this matchup, namely that Defile and Hellfire are off the table for our opponent and that the only "board clear" available for our opponent is Despicable Dreadlord. Our opponent is more likely to have single target removal (such as Voodoo Doll) or is looking to play a demon-related 5 drop next turn in Skull of the Man'ari, Possessed Lackey, or Doomguard.
      Bozonik summed up this situation excellently in his comment from last week's thread:
      There seemed to be a consensus among commenters that "Option 1", Hero Power + Sea Giant was the line here. It puts a big nasty minion on the board, applying pressure and forcing our opponent to have Voodoo Doll. In the heat of the moment I went with "Option 2", the full clear, but after looking back on things and reading over the comments I believe Hero Power + Giant was the correct line. Despicable Dreadlord is really the only card which gives us serious trouble next turn (since our opponent won't be able to play Possessed Lackey and kill it) and this line plays around Dreadlord while applying just as much pressure as the other options.
      I was secretly hoping that the tap + Giant wasn't the correct line here (because its the most obvious one), but the obvious solution is often the correct one. If you're ever in a situation such as this where you have no idea what your opponent is up to, it's probably best to go for the "obvious" line and not get cute.
      Situation #23: Broken Mirrors
      Today's deck comes courtesy of Kevin "Casie" Eberlein, who cut the dragon package from Mind Blast Priest to turn the deck into something with much more of a combo/aggro feel to it. Many pros are pegging Mind Blast Priest to be the next "best deck in the meta" after the nerfs drop, and Casie's list has a serious advantage in the mirror match:
      Though I didn't find nearly as much success with the deck as Casie did, it did provide me with plenty of interesting situations for What's the Move! Here's the one I ended up choosing for this week's episode:

      It's turn 2, we're on The Coin, and our ladder opponent just played a Wild Pyromancer. For the purposes of this exercise, we can say that we're 100% confident our opponent is on Mind Blast Priest. However, this isn't a mirror match at all. We have Prophet Velen, Holy Smite, two copies of Holy Fire (most Mind Blast Priests run just one), and Lifedrinker in our deck, which gives us a huge advantage in late-game Anduin vs Anduin races. Knowing that we have an advantage in the late game should color our decision heavily on turn two, where have a surprising number of options available to us.
      So, what's the move?
