Deck List

Before Standard Welcome to the third installment of this series. This time, my focus will be on to the rogue class, a class that was my least played class until WotOG. Why? It is difficult to master, you constantly struggle with health issues and plays are complex: hold off your Preparation and wait for the perfect Gadgetzan turn or is it better to make an early giant Edwin VanCleef? There are a multitude of decision to be made and all are very dependent on the class you play against. Atop, before Standard, Rogue did not have many viable archetypes. In tournaments, you almost never saw anything besides Oil Rogue and very rarely Malygos or old school (post nerf) Miracle Rogue. Mostly, the class was played by specialists who understood the class perfectly and were able to squeeze wins out of almost every matchups. There was also the gist that rogue

Introduction This is the second installation of my “The Many Faces of …”. I started a few weeks back with Warrior and will continue today with druid. Before the release of Whispers of the Old Gods and the nerfs to classic and basic Cards, that were introduced one week prior, Druid was considered a very narrow but also very powerful class. Force of Nature and Savage Roar, in their Prior iteration, were just too good to be ignored in a competitive environment. Midrange/Combo Druid was the most dominant archetype by far while other Play styles e.g. Ramp Druid and Aggro Druid saw only occasional play. Only in some states of the meta the were played more frequently as they were used as Counters to other decks. Today, the grand picture has changed quite a bit. Force of Nature no longer grants charge, old cards dropped out and new cards were introduced. These changes lead to

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

It is great against control decks as you have more threats than they can deal with, they only have a certain amount of removal, but you potentially have endless minions with the likes of tomb spider and ball of spiders. Deck List General Strategy The aim is to survive the early turns with your removal and then play high value minions on curve such as tomb spider and Savannah Highmane. Against decks such as zoo and secret paladin we can have big removal turns using our AoE effects combined with a Hunters Mark or a Deadly Shot. The deck doesn’t need card draw because there are multiple cards in the

It has been a very powerful deck over a long time and will move to the graveyard with the new format. Let’s take a last view over it, and build some Christmas trees out there. The Decklist Mulligan Always keep: Secretkeeper, Knife Juggler, Shielded Minibot, Muster for Battle vs Druid keep: Haunted Creeper, vs Hunter keep: Haunted Creeper, vs Paladin keep: Haunted Creeper, vs Mage keep: Haunted Creeper, vs Priest keep: Keeper of Uldaman vs Rogue keep: Haunted Creeper, vs Shaman keep: Haunted Creeper, vs Warlock keep: Haunted Creeper, vs Warrior keep: Haunted Creeper, Piloted Shredder Keep Avenge and Noble Sacrifice together with Secretkeeper.

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

For the past month (well even more), we’ve been seeing a lot of the same decks in ladder. Some of these are: Combo Druid, Secret Paladin, Renolock, Aggro Shaman, Zoolock, Control Priest, and Control Warrior. That being said, why haven’t we seen Hunters lately? It is because people thought Hunter ‘was’ dead. The League of Explorers (LoE) introduced a card named Reno Jackson that made it a lot harder to SMOrc: you sacrifice deck consistency for a worthy full life late

Team F2K explain the deck lists and how to play them. View past Deck Lists of the Week. The meta has been the same this past few weeks. You will notice the same decks are being played like Freeze Mage, Renolock, Secret Paladin and Tempo Mage. Today, I take you back to 2015 with Deathrattle Rogue! This type of Rogue has solid midrange power that has a super sticky board. The whole list revolves around Unearthed Raptor: it is the only reason why you play this deck. It has the stats of a Spider Tank which can copy deathrattles of your minions on board. It is a really good card,
