Edit: After this was published, Mryagut tweeted that he made a small change with this deck. Basically he took out 1 Zombie Chow and put in Alexstraza and says it plays even better. Mryagut played in the Road to BlizzCon World Championships last year and was known for playing very unconventional decks. Personally I loved seeing him play and he would always seem to bring something a bit different than what was the norm. People like him are what are needed on the scene in my opinion. And he’s at it again, this week with a Dragon Warlock deck that helped him get to legendary. If you listen to our Well Met podcast you will have heard us talk about how dragons seem to fit mostly in Paladin, Priest, and some extent warrior, however Warlock was never even in the picture. Mryagut proves us wrong with a Dragon Warlock deck
This has been my personal deck of choice to ladder this past week (and maybe for the next week or so depending on the meta). Control Warrior as a whole has a pretty decent win rate but is pretty boring to play. By adding in a bit of dragon flavor, I have to say that I really enjoy Control Warrior a lot more now. Also, my original thought of Nefarian being a lame card has changed, he does work and has won me quite a few games. I went from Rank 20 to Rank 12 with this deck in the first week and probably could have gone higher if I had more time to play. I’ll most likely talk about it in next week’s Well Met podcast. So the deck is basically your standard control warrior with the addition of 2 high end dragons that then synergize well with the
Mill Druid has been out for a while, but despite being a different and fun option. It hasn't seemed to catch on in the competitive scene. Perhaps Mill Druid isn't meant to become a staple of the competitive meta, but at least recently a player decided to experiment with it. TidesofTime decided to bring a version of Mill Druid to the Kinguin for Charity Easter edition and he ended up winning the whole thing. Check this deck out!
Blackwing Lair is out and one of my favorite cards from the set has been released. It’s no secret that I was incredibly excited about Flamewaker and once I had it I immediately went about trying to find ways to make it work into a deck. It doesn’t fit into Mech Mage and it doesn’t really fit into Freeze Mage – although some of the spells in Freeze Mage work very well with it. Instead I think it creates a new deck on it’s own, and this one I have been playing non stop this weekend. This deck first came to my attention from a post by Yueshen from the Competitive Hearthstone subreddit detailing the Chinese scene. The Chinese player called (life is a trip)#5671 was able to get to Legend #62 on the Chinese region with this deck. The deck is very cheap mana cost wise and also card

Yong Woo is a senior producer for the Hearthstone team at Blizzard and also a pretty damn good player of the game. Each season he usually ranks pretty high with some unconventional decks that he has created and so far this one is my favorite. Last week’s Deck of the Week I was talking about trying to make Grim Patron work in a deck, and Yong Woo has a pretty good thing going here with his Trigger Crazy Warrior Deck. Personally, I’m still not a fan of Battle Rage and even considered taking it out for another Commanding Shout. Also, with Axe Flinger now out with wing 2 releasing I really want to incorporate it with the deck. Originally I tried doing so by swapping out Frothing Berserker but that ended up being a terrible idea. I’d say removing the Arcanite Reaper and replacing it with a Axe Flinger is

With Blackrock Mountain opening up this week, 2 of the cards I was most excited about got released in the first wing. Grim Patron and Emperor Thaurissan. When we add in the Warsong Commander bug fix, I knew what kind of deck I wanted to build this week. Everyone, get in here!
Got home this evening and opened up Blackrock Mountain. Luckily, I already had some practice last month against Grim Guzzler in both normal and heroic so I knew what I was getting into. The following are the deck lists and strategy I used along with the video of the match. Grim Guzzler His heroic ability drops in 2 creatures for himself and 1 for you. So you want to mulligan all your creatures since you’ll be getting them in play for free. The way you win this match is fairly easy, make sure you get board control and keep your creatures on the board while killing his with bigger creatures and cheap removal. Eventually he’ll run out of cards and you can just win. In the video I used Deathwing instead of Malygos. But if you watch the video you’ll see why I added Malygos to the deck afterwords. Malorne
I know that I promised a full review of the ViaGame HouseCup #2, and that will come on Sunday as part of my eSports series. Meanwhile you can check out this hilarious Showmatch, its world renown Caster Dan “Frodan” Chou vs one of the best Hosts in eSports today, the lovely Rachel “Seltzer” Quirico. Check out the full match below casted by Savjz, Forsen, and Firebat; it’s definitely worth a watch. Also make sure to check out ViaGame’s youtube channel for more House Cup content. This match for the ages was sold as a showdown between the 2 worst possible decks, but in reality it was more of a funny setup to screw over Frodan. While Frodan’s deck was built to give him almost no chance to win, Rachel’s Deck at least had a built in win condition in form of a fatigue win via Ice Barriers, and a Coldlight
