Question : Would an Arcane Golem be a good replacement for 1 Razorfen Hunter? Thinking the charge could impact games a ton and it's a 3 mana for 4 attack. Not sure how much damage giving the opponent a mana crystal can do though. Let me know, cheers!

Arcane Golem should only be used in decks that are really consistently aggressive, giving your opponent a Mana Crystal is really bad for in the long run.

Yea can be quite circumstantial. Thinking of replacing with Silver Hand Knight for more board control instead.

for this deck, it has way too much trouble beating normal maexxna. its impossible. ive maybe got her down to 24 health? i can figure out how to build a deck to mach her minion swarm, which no matter how often i clear the feild, its back to swarmed in 1 round, plus her returning mnions keeping my feild clear. its a bad problem.

I made this deck and have since done Naxx and also got Duplicate but thats currently the only secret I have. I have Mad Scientist and you guide says to replace the Acidic Swamp Ooze with them but which 3 drop cards would I swap out for Duplicate?

Duplicate isn't really worth including in this deck, i'd wait until you have more Secrets like Mirror Entity to make the Scientist inclusion worth it.

Thank you for putting this deck together. I have seen several other deck builds on the web, but they seem to lack the reasoning behind their builds. I really appreciate you taking the time to explain why each card is included and when they are important to play. It has really helped me to understand the concept behind deck building in general. I used to play MTG back in the day and am really surprised at the similarities in deck composition concepts. I wouldn't have connected the dots if it weren't for your guide.

 

TL;DR You're Awesome!

Thank you so much for putting this deck together!  Games like Hearthstone have always been interesting to me, but intimidating. Having a clear, good deck I can use from the beginning reduces the variables to consider and helps me learn.  I breezed through both modes of AI and have been winning Play matches.  This deck has some nice surprises even when things are looking bad.  Thanks again!

I've got Violet Teacher and Ice Block from opening packs, are they worth swapping in?

Thanks :)

Violet Teacher absolutely, Ice Block no. Ice Block is best for decks that just want to live enough turns to kill an opponent with a combo, just living one more turn in a regular deck is not worth anything.

Violet Teachers will definitely work though, just cut a Sen'jin or Yeti if you have only one to go in. (Depending on whether you want to keep the Taunt or not)

What about Wild Pyromancer ,Ancient mage and Gadgetzan Auctioneer, do they have a place in this build?Ty

Juggler and Pyro can both go in in place of the regular 2-drops, not the others though. Ancient Mage is just outright bad, and this deck doesn't play enough cheap spells to cycle with Gadg.

      Murder at Castle Nathria is Hearthstone's latest expansion. It adds a new Infuse keyword that absorbs anima from your friendly minions, a new card type named Locations, and more.

      Murder at Castle Nathria
      Hearthstone’s Newest Expansion

      The Shadowlands is normally where souls go after they die, so when someone dies in the Shadowlands, that’s a special kind of mystery. Sire Denathrius invited 10 of his counterparts and enemies to Castle Nathria for a dinner party so that he could address the malicious rumors that he is hoarding anima, the life-energy that is drained from tortured souls and used to power the Shadowlands. But just after the festivities started, Sire Denathrius was found dead! It seems a gaggle of enemies does not a good dinner party make. Now the illustrious Murloc Holmes, and his trusty sidekick Watfin, have been called to solve the case. Scour new Location cards, follow the trail of Infused minions, question the 10 Legendary suspects, and help determine who committed Murder at Castle Nathria!   

      Murder at Castle Nathria will launch worldwide on August 2 with 135 new collectible cards! You can find the full Murder at Castle Nathria reveal schedule, and all cards that have already been revealed, by visiting the card library here. Check back frequently—the list will be updated with new cards as they’re revealed!
      Ten Suspicious Suspects
      Sire Denathrius had a lot of enemies. And it just so happens that 10 of them were under his roof at the time of his demise! Each class will have a Legendary minion that is a prime suspect in Sire Denathrius’s murder. They all have the means and the motive, but it is up to you and Murloc Holmes to determine who is guilty.



      New Keyword: Infuse
      Anima, drawn from wayward souls, powers all the Shadowlands—and those who consume it! Cards with the Infuse keyword sit in your hand and absorb anima from your friendly minions as they die. After the specified number of friendly minions die while the Infuse card is in your hand, the Infuse card transforms into a more powerful version. Infuse your cards to unlock their full power!

      New Card Type: Locations
      Castle Nathria is like no place Hearthstone has ever been before. Explore the castle grounds through the all-new Location card type! Locations are played onto the battlefield for an initial cost, and then have an ability that can be activated for free on your turns, each time for a powerful effect. Each activation costs 1 Durability and has a 1-turn Cooldown. Every class gets their own Location card in Castle Nathria which represents where they claim their suspect was at the time of the murder, and synergizes with the themes of the class.

       
      Locations Gameplay Preview with Brian Kibler and Designer Leo Robles Gonzalez
      Want to get a longer look at the new Location card type? Join Brian Kibler and Game Designer Leo Robles Gonzalez as they explore the new Location card type, try them out in a couple games, and reveal some more new cards! Join them on Friday, July 1, at 11 a.m. (Pacific) on Twitch and Youtube!

      Arena Rotation

      When United in Stormwind launches on August 3, the Arena will include cards from the following sets:
      United in Stormwind Forged in the Barrens Wailing Caverns Mini-Set Madness at the Darkmoon Faire Darkmoon Races Mini-Set The Witchwood Saviors of Uldum Rastakhan's Rumble Core Book of Heroes Illidan – Coming August 10

      After regaining his freedom, Illidan was eager to prove himself once and for all. But even as he journeyed far from his homeland and joined forces with new allies, the thirst for power never left him. It was only a matter of time before it interfered with his judgment, resulting in more dire consequences than ever before…Defeating all 8 bosses in this linear adventure will reward 1 Demon Hunter pack, containing only Demon Hunter cards from Standard.
      United in Stormwind Rewards Track & Tavern Pass
      When the Rewards Track refreshes when United in Stormwind launches, all players will automatically be granted any unclaimed rewards on both the free track and the Tavern Pass track (if purchased), and a completely new Rewards Track of unlockable loot will take its place.

      The Forged in the Barrens Tavern Pass will expire with the launch of United in Stormwind and a new Tavern Pass will be made available for purchase—offering a host of brand-new cosmetic rewards and XP boosts.

      Learn more about the United in Stormwind Rewards Track and Tavern Pass here.
      As a reminder, Battlegrounds Perks are now available as a standalone purchase, separate from the Tavern Pass.
      New Cosmetic Coins
      Two new Cosmetic Coins are being added with United in Stormwind, the Stormwind coin and the Lordaeron coin. The Stormwind coin is obtainable by completing the first 90 levels of the Rewards Track with the Tavern Pass. The Lordaeron coin is obtainable by collecting 135 unique United in Stormwind cards.

      Keep in mind that United in Stormwind will have a 35-card Mini-Set that will make it easier to reach both the 25 total United in Stormwind Legendary cards for the Archbishop Benedictus Diamond card reward and the 135 total United in Stormwind cards for the Lordaeron Cosmetic Coin. We’ll have more information to share about the United in Stormwind Mini-Set in the coming months.
