    I like how this deck plays. At first I underestimated how effective this deck could be at climbing and tested it with a bit of reluctance, however, after playing for a while I started to stack wins and understand the reasons for some cards I thought a bit wierd. Playing spiteful summoner at turn 5 (with mire keeper’s acceleration) is in many games enought to win the game. You mostly will want to play grand archivist into an ultimate infestation russian rulette when your opponent has more cards than you do or when you are winning the game but need more cards in your hand. Glacial shard will usually make up for the ultimate infestation turn or give you a turn to set up to win the game. Many games vs aggro paladin, jade druid, big priest and cubelock will be won by mind control tech and spellbreaker will win you the more control oriented matches while also unfreezing your minions or preventing in an emergency your archivist from casting ultimate infestation two times in row. This is a very swing -heavy deck but it works.
    Having said all that, you will still have trouble winning the games where you draw ultimate infestation before casting the spiteful summoners or the archivist, but more often than not you get to fire those effects at least once. Sometimes sh*t will happen and you will start with both infestations in hand or draw into them early on.

    I made some changes when playing to make the deck a bit more aggro and controlling
    -1 zola the gorgon +1 vivious fletching (did not have zola)
    -2 mistress of mixtures +2 enchanted raven (I still don’t understand why you would use her in this deck)
    -1 secret eater +1 falndra staghelm (secret mage is a bit of an oddity in ladder and I find that I prefer having a better minion in most matches, he works with mire keeper and your death knight and in some cases as a bait for your oponents spells)

    You will have trouble fighting some priests, paladins if you don’t draw into hungry crab or if they draw into sunkeeper tarim and you will have overall a bad matchup against mages of any kind (although it can still be won). cube lock will depend heavily on your mind control teck steal and spellbreaker silencing.

    In the end, this is a really interesting deck with some wild moments where you can win the game due to an archivist hitting your opponents face. I expected to play a fun but underwhelmingdeck but what I got was some real firepower. I will try to see how far I can take this deck into ladder (getting on a winstreak beyond rank 10). Kudos to you and good luck

      Managed to make it all the way to rank 5, will have to see if I can make it to legendary.

      -1 vivious fledging +1 zola the gorgon (found out it has a lot of power in this deck and had to craft it)
      – 1 faldram saghelm +1 secret eater (started facing more mage and hunter)

    Cool deck. I did a few adjustments to tech against the meta a bit more.

    – 2 Mire Keeper
    + 1 any ooze or Harrison Jones for weapon removal
    + Geist

    Also can drop Grand Archivist if you like for an extra Eater of Secrets if you keep running across Mages and Hunters.

    tested out the deck missing both mind control tech’s (replaced with crypt lord’s) and missing Zola (replaced with ironbeak owl.[i’m a pleb, and I couldn’t think of anything better.])
    And it worked out pretty will at rank 13 against secret mage.

    Horrible deck. Might as well auto concede to any mage you face.

      It also fails horribly versus ramp druid.

      On a win streak against Mages with it at the moment. Eater of Secrets is pretty good in that matchup.

      You should never have commented. You have no clue.

      Never make a deck vs one hero you make a deck that tries to counter most heroes. To demand 100% is just newbish.

    Went from 8 to 5 in one hour, fun deck, opponents are always surprised.
    If you draw both UI early you’re pretty fuck though.

    Dumb question but I’m not sure, who do you use Zola on? Spellbreaker? or maybe Spiteful summoner?

      Zola is very good with nearly every minion in this deck, depending on the situation.

      Hungry Crab = Kill more Murlocs
      Prince Keleseth = More buff
      Tar Creeper, Chain Gang = More taunt

      Well, I think you get the point.

      That said, I don’t think Zola is that important. But it fits the curve and I don’t know what to run instead of her, to be honest.

      8 Mana, 9/12 in stats, draw 5 cards and deal 5 damage to your face it still an amazing result though.

        Sorry, it doesn’t even do 5 damage to your face because it also gives you 5 armor. So you are saying that you wouldn’t play a card that says:

        “8 mana, 9/12 in stats, draw 5 cards” or “8 mana, 9/7 in stats, draw five cards, gain 5 armor”?

      Also, you don’t want to be casting UI in this deck. You want it for free from archivist. You are already dead if you take two turns to play an 8 mana 7/7 and then UI.

    This is a very interesting build for this type of deck. Spiteful. Usually lack the spells to help swing the game once you’ve lost control the board this deck runs the Minions that you would need to go through and swing the game back in your favor. I like the ticking in of Eater of Secrets the spell Breakers and the hungry crabs. I like the idea of the Mind Control text and second-rate bruisers helping to swing the game back in your favor with just minions. I’m definitely going to give this deck a try.

    That’s a nice atypical deck building. I don’t know if I would try it on ladder but gg!
