Great deck! My only change would be swapping out the black knight.  In the current meta, usually the most you are going to get out of it is killing half of a sludge belcher and that just doesnt seem good enough to me.  I would replace it with either Harrison or Cairne.  What do you think?  smile.png

Both fine changes.

The idea of Black Knight is that this is a Midrange deck, where tempo swings are one of the most important and powerful things you can do. Playing a minion while simultaneously killing another is extremely important for a midrange focused deck, that's why this deck includes a lot of cards like Bomb Lobber, Dark Iron, TBK etc. Even hitting an Annoy-O-Tron or Voidwalker is good for Tempo.

Is there something I'm doing wrong here? I've been playing this deck for several days now and the winrate against any miracle-style rogue, spell heavy mage or priest is abysmal. I try to play around their spells, but they always seem to have the perfect combination in their hand to keep me completely minionless, and without another heal on deck outside of lay on hands, I'm doomed 9/10 times. Currently rank 14 and cannot seem to push past the sheer number of class combinations that just out-spell me.

 

Am I just really unlucky, or am I playing my hands wrong?

I have everything except for Captain Greenskin. What's a good replacement until I can scrounge the 1600 dust together?

No, not really unlucky, Priest and Rogue are just two of the weaker matchups for this deck. It happens, every deck in the game has its strong and weak matchups, if that's the sort of thing you're running into commonly, you should look to play something different to maximise your winrates. Control Warrior is very strong against all three of the decks you mentioned.

Knife Juggler, Second Bomb Lobber or Second Belcher are all fine.

I have everything besides the Greenskin and Sylvanas.  Do you think that Fuegen and Stalagg would be a good replacement?  Or run a full playset of Sludge Belchers and Bomb Lobbers instead?  I also have a pair of Faceless Manipulator's that I've been wanting to see in a deck.

If you cut Sylvanas, you probably need another late-game card to take its place, Piloted Sky Golem or similar. The Greenskin can be cut for a second Lobber or Sludge though.

can we substitute something to include justice sword ? as it can synergize well with all other things

maybe by removing one quartermaster ?

      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: 1 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!
