    Are there any guides in this deck?

    Didn’t have Dragoncaller Alanna, so I replaced her with Baron Geddon. It’s working out OK.

      Baron Geddon is AMAZING once you’ve switched to DK Jaina. +2 health gain each turn for every other minion on the board +2 more for your opponent? Yes, please!

    I love these decks that cost 11k dust and still get beat by current budget decks. The deck is strong but should be players can find competitive decks out there without trying to just buy one

      Yessss, love flexing my meme decks ­čśÇ Highlander Priest used to be one of these as well, before DKs came out.

    Replacment for dirty rat?

      January 9, 2018 at 5:23 pm

      Dirty Rat is something that can be vital. This is a pretty good counter to Highlander Priest as well.

      Dirty Rat is a counter to other decks (like Raza Priest) and isn’t vital to the overall playability of this deck. If you don’t have Dirty Rat then remember you are trying to protect yourself early so you can survive long enough to unleash (cheap taunt/armor gain/life gain). Acidic Swamp Ooze could also serve as an anti-meta card vs. Warlock while providing a 2-cost 3/2 body.

    How does this perform against Cube Lock? Perhaps its just me, but a good 40% of my matchups currently are against Cube Lock. Need something to perform against it.

      Made a Cube Lock concede after Polymorphing both of his Voidlords. Good times.

      If you draw both polymorphs its an easy win. If you draw 1 polymorph its a close matchup. If you draw neither, you lose.

    ┬┐Remplacement for frost lich jaina? please

      Frost Lich Jaina adds lategame value AND stabalization to this deck. So you ideally want the same in the card you replace her with. For value, cards like Ysera, Lich King or Medivh. For stabalization, unfortunately, no card does it like Frost Lich Jaina can. Except maybe Reno. Do expect more difficulty in stabalizing when at low health, but the Alex and Arcane Artificers should serve fine for now.

    • Ryuk

      There is no replacement for Jaina. It is the biggest win condition in the deck.

    Any replace for Alex? :/

    • Warface87
      January 8, 2018 at 5:03 pm

      Lich King, Spitefull Summoner, Corridor Creeper.

    • CephaSapper

      Alex cannot be replaced easily. Her effect is very unique and serves to help pull your health back from the brink of death (like when facing tempo decks). The substitutions Warface87 mentioned all help to add Tempo (Corridor/Spiteful) or Value (LK) to the deck, instead of the ‘healing’ Alex gives. No other card (barring Reno) helps to stabalize like Alex does, so I honestly suggest you craft her. She is a powerful card that is in the classic set.

        Alex is also versatile and can get you lethal – especially if you dropped Alanna the turn before and have a few of those 5/5 dragons left.

    Replacement for medhiv?
