    I got lucky once and manged to put out the Gunspire and did bouncing blade with those 2 things being the only thing on the board. 8 * 3 = 24 baby that was cool to watch but it is very hard to get that combo when anything else is on the board which is almost always. And I noticed the bouncing blade seems to gravitate towards the weiner creatures first which of course is aggravating and probably why you don’t see it in play so much anymore.

    Absolutely no early-game board presence

      That’s the problem I’ve had with it, I’ve included Animated Berserker and Frothing Berserker to help bridge the gap into the late game.

      Had a game against a cube lock last night where I Sudden Genesis’d the guntower, then echoed Warpath 5 times the next turn to clear the board and get lethal. Should’ve taken a video, because this deck is fun as hell when it clicks.

    I’ve been toying with a deck like this as well but lack the cards and dust to fully flesh it out. What are your thoughts on Animated Corrupter? 1 for a 1/3 that triggers all of your “take damage” effects as soon as the other minion is summoned.

    I’ve also got frothing berserkers for some early game high attack monsters, but I struggle with some board clear.

    Either way, I’d love to make a deck like this work. The idea of getting minions on the board then blasting everything with warpath of WW and having all these effects trigger seems like so much fun.

      Yep, super fun deck. Very strategic. This has been my standard deck of choice since Aggro Paladin seems to be the meta deck right now. I really enjoy this particular deck. Nice control and combo pieces.

      But you’re right. The journey to late game can be a struggle. I’ve tried the Animateds, but they just didn’t work for me. However, I think you’re onto something with the Frothing Berzerkers. They work well as an early distraction or a late game additional combo piece. They have enough “threat” that they have to be dealt with. It’s a good substitute. But which cards did you sub out?

      My deck is 90% this one. With one Sudden Genesis, one Faceless Manipulator, and the Forge of Souls subbed out for the two Frothings and a Reckless Flurry. I’ve been messing around between using Brawl and Reckless Flurry recently, but Reckless seems to be winning more. You can combo it well with the Armorsmiths and Shield Blocks to wipe the board completely. Or even just hero power Reckless for another small clear.

        So this is what I’ve been using lately, to some success:
        http://www.hearthstonetopdecks.com/decks/walteregos-self-harm-whirlwind-warrior/

        It’s still really not quite there though. I find myself in a few situations where I essentially have no choice but to concede. If the opponent does a good job of killing gunspire, rotface, and grommash, there’s essentially nothing you can to do to win unless you get lucky with a faceless copy of some crazy huge monster they have and manage to execute theirs. Also if they’ve got more than a few big bodies on the board, unless you get lucky with a rotface proc this deck has no taunt whatsoever, so it can leave you in a bit of a pinch.

        I wonder if Woecleaver would have a place in this deck? One of the hardest things to pull off is keeping a body on the board long enough to clone, if you could get it out with the wep then you could WW and sudden genesis/faceless on the same turn, which could be HUGE for pulling off combos.

        I’ve tried Death Revenant but found I was clearing the board too much to make the 5 cost actually worth it, might throw frothing berserker back in because it tends to draw attention pretty quickly, but almost every time I had one out and got him boosted, they would trade some low cost 2/1 to take out the buffed 11/1 before I could even attack with him. Basically they were getting the better end of the trade every time with that card.

        Other’s I’ve tried/considered and commanding shout and dead man’s hand, but probably won’t use the latter because the main issue is drawing the necessary cards for a combo, and while some of the others can help it’ll just lower the chances of getting what you need.

        I’d be really interested in getting this deck to work though, so if you want to team up in playtesting it I’d be down.

          In the early game, I found I had too much draw and not enough presence, so I’ve swapped out an acolyte and a battle rage and put in a couple of val’kyr soulclaimers for a bit of early game body.

    How nessecary is Zola to the deck? Any recommended replacements?

    Guess I gotta craft scourgelord gromm right?

    Love this deck. It’s not just the Gunspire that can go crazy. If Gromash sticks, Faceless but Sudden Genesis gives you four of them!

    Gunspire + Zola + Sudden Genesis … when did HS become a Tower Defence game?
