    Replace a meteor for a golakka can ne good or not? I am facing a lot of tempo rogues, so a tech card to deafet them can be useful, but i m worried to be in lack of removals in some case. What do you think about it?

    This is a hard deck to pilot I highly recommend you check out gaaras youtube and streams as he goes into great detail about his decision making each turn. You can’t expect to win with this deck by simply playing on curve, you really need to save your spells for certain moments in each match up

    Why spellbender, what minion this decks want to protect exactly??

      Maybe Baron Geddon… maybe Medivh… Maybe Alexstraza… Or… MAYBE it can prevent an opponent Minion from receiving a Blessing of Kings or a Spikeridged Steed, which can help you a lot when the board is in your opponent’s side.

        i have to disagree (except for Baron maybe??), all of these minions completed their missions when they landed on the board, set up a secret last turn to protect them is unnecessary. When i played with a similar deck i have never hoped for Alex to survive the next turn and still win good. 8 armors to survive until you can play them is much more crucial.

        Spellbender is a reliable secret to play into med valet and that’s that. Also a tech card to play with Paladin like you said too

          Spellbender is pretty much for the priest matchup. This deck is very poor against highlands priest due to their heals. Spellbender prior to Alex so it protects Alex to allow a face hit with spell burst to out do the healing they do on their turn after Alex gas set them to 15.

          Ice barrier and counter spell are good, but they’re usually not essential for victory in other matchups – just helpful.

      It stops Milton reflection when facing quest mage

      Gaara said its because everything you want to counterspell in current meta is just better with spellbender.
      For example countering shadowstep or cold blood or backstab (All the rogue spells that are played in tempo rogue) generally seem like more value when you have spellbender. Plus you won’t lose your spellbender to just them throwing out a coin or something like you would with counterspell. You just get a little bit more value thats all.

    Any replacement for Baron?

      I’d say there isn’t; if you’re in Lich Queen mode, the amount of heal could be huge, plus it’s great for board control. Maybe Lich King or Elise, but don’t expect the same results

      Baron Gedden is a tech choice not a requirement. The healing is ok, but oftentimes is way too slow against aggro
