Blizzard announced via the Hearthstone Forums today that two cards that have been hotly debated since the dawn of the latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzen, will be receiving changes. The first of the cards will be Small-Time Buccaneer will be getting its health changed from 2 to 1 which should allow for an easier time for players to deal with this minion. Secondly, Spirit Claws will now cost 2 instead of only 1. Shaman is clearly a strong deck and this should help with slowing down it’s ramp up. The other announcement included in this post has to do with Ranked Play changes, and ranking floors. As of now, the currently floor (the point at which you can no longer lose rank) is at 20. When 7.1 hits, this will add additional floors to ranks 15, 10, and 5. The explanation for this was outlined in Zeriyah’s post below:

The card only has average stats of 3.23/4.14 with 4 armor gain.  This seems to render it a worse Shieldmaiden. Yet, as we have learnt from cards like Bash, any armor gain card seems to be beneficial for CW. It aids CW’s desire to stall and activate Shield Slams. The other big deal is that Ironforge Portal is a spell. It makes Yogg-Saron finally viable in CW. Atop, Yogg-Saron himself got a better after ONiK with the addition of the portal cards. With Zoo, Dragon Warrior, Tempo Mage, and Aggro Shaman all being buffed, it’s the right time for an anti-aggro deck to enter the meta to prey on these archetypes. Here


Tech Your Deck: C’Thun Warrior

by dannydonuts on

Hi this is Danny Donuts, and I am back again with another addition to the “Tech Your Deck” series. This week we will be looking at the king of control decks on the ladder: C’Thun Warrior. The game plan of this deck is very similar to the old control warrior decks pre-WotOG, in which the deck is not particularly concerned in tempoing your opponent out, you are more concerned in getting value out of your cards. This composition is a bit more versatile than the previous Midrange Hunter Deck Tech that I reviewed, as it has the ability to counter most other decks in the meta through teching. This is one of the current strongest control decks, and can obtain a significant win rate if modified properly. Core Cards Similar to the previous Midrange Hunter deck, there are 22 cards in the C’Thun Warrior deck that I believe should be considered “core”

Yogg-Saron is fun and he is a surprisingly good comeback card. That’s why the old god became more and more popular over the last weeks. I already covered his mechanic in the Yogg-Saron Infographic on June 24th. With the increasing appearance in the game, there are viable decks for a lot of classes already available. Today, I will bring you at least one deck for every class, that you too will be able to take the god of death into the new ranked season (S28). I can only encourage you to try at least some of the decks. They may not only be viable on ladder but also incredibly fun. The playstyles of these compositions are a bit more demanding compared to cookie cutter decks though, but in the end, if you become able to master them, they can feel very rewarding. Be sure to check out the infographic article I mentioned above. In it, give you a lot

Welcome to my newest infographic! Just to remind you, this infographic is meant for Standard play mode only. The evaluation of weapons might be wrong under certain circumstances but I think they are a good approximation. I compared it to another evaluation from a post  by Tamarin24 in the CompetitiveHS subreddit and I saw that I agreed with him (or her) almost 100%. I adopted from him the even worse rating for Cursed Blade in a separate “CURSED!” category. In general, Malkorok is a really straight forward warrior legendary with the battlecry to gain a weapon. His stats, 6 attack and 5 health, are subpar for a seven mana minion but the battlecry can give you the opportunity to interact with the board immediately or push for damage. The question at hand is: HOW good is the battlecry? Details will be shown in the infographic but to give you a

A very well met to all of you. Today’s short article is for all of the Johnnys and to some extend also for the Timmys as the decks I will show you involve a lot of huge creatures too. It is not really fit for the Spikes out there though, they just have to continue playing Midrange Shaman, Miracle Rogue and N’Zoth Paladin. You don’t know what I am talking about? Take a look at this MTG article here. In short there are three type of players: Timmy, Johnny and Spike. For Timmy  it is all huge minions and huge spells, if he wins, which is less common for his style of play, he wants to win with all these big bombs. Johnny cares about winning, but he wants to win with style! Spike is the tryhard player. All that is important is winning, no matter how boring it gets.

Warrior was my most favored class since I began playing Hearthstone. I already loved playing this class as a main tank in WoW, and that remained true for Hearthstone. Warlock is my other preferred class, but has to some part fallen out of my favor at least, as I am a little tired of playing Zoo and Reno decks are not particularly my piece of cake. Also, I try to make Control Shaman work almost every season – with minor success so far. I am tinkering with a N’Zoth Shaman right now, which is decent but

Originally created by @ANOXShtanUdachi, many players, including myself, quickly adopted and adapted this deck for the current ladder session. With at least 3 player in EU holding spots in the Top 10 of ladder this deck is worth taking a second look at. Why Does It Work /Game Plan Players are often a bit confused when first looking at the deck, seeing the draw power of patron Battle Rage + Whirlwind + Acolyte mixed with the late game threats of of CW makes player’s concerned that after a battle rage they will end up with more cards in hand than they can play, and will put

We have roughly 35% of the Whispers of the Old Gods set revealed so far (check out the full spoiler list of reveals here), and today we at BlizzPro are proud to reveal a common Warrior minion card in the set. Say hello to Ravaging Ghoul. So this looks to be a corrupted Unstable Ghoul, which if that’s the case it’s interesting to see a neutral minion become a warrior minion, but because of it’s whirlwind battlecry effect it does make the most sense to apply it to a warrior only. With it being a 3/3 body for 3 it becomes a pretty decent 3 drop since it only hits the other minions and not itself. However, where it really shines is the fact that it’s a potential replacement for Death’s Bite (but obviously not as good) for Patron Warrior. It can help trigger things like Execute to get rid of pesky

Team F2K explain the deck lists and how to play them. View past Deck Lists of the Week. A final look at patron? With the new standard format on the horizon, a lot of people are starting to speculate what the top decks will be in the coming months. As we lose cards though some top ladder decks will also be vanishing from the meta, one of these is Patron Warrior. Without death-bite for the possibility of turn 5 Patrons, or as an activator for acolyte or berserker, there won’t be enough cheap whirlwind effects to keep the current version of the deck viable vs the completion unless it receives
