3. Comments On The Variation

This variant contains additional card draw in the form of Loot Hoarder, Acolyte of Pain, Novice Engineer, and Gnomish Inventor. The additional card draw allows the Raza the Chained and Shadowreaper Anduin combo to be played much faster on average which improves matchups against slower archetypes such as Jade Druid, Control Paladin and other Highlander Priest decks.

This variant also includes Prophet Velen which adds a further boost against Control decks. Prophet Velen can be played after Shadowreaper Anduin to double all damage caused. This is especially powerful if you are able to save multiple cheap spells and provides a large amount of burst damage against decks that have large amounts of healing.

3.1. Pros and Cons

The additional card draw present in this variant improves the consistency of the deck's primary strategy, greatly improving control matchups. However, some defensive tools have been sacrificed to fit in the additional cards, which can make Aggro decks more problematic.

3.2. Quick Mulligan Guide

With this deck you are looking to play Raza the Chained and Shadowreaper Anduin as soon as possible and should mulligan aggressively for them in addition to Kazakus in your opening hand. Against Aggro you should additionally look for some cheap spells or minions to help survive the early-game such as Potion of Madness, Holy Smite, Shadow Word: Pain, and Northshire Cleric.
