This tutorial shows you how to beat Deathbringer Saurfang using a Warrior card with basic cards.

Best Knights of the Frozen Throne Legendary Cards to Craft

The Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion has some interesting, and powerful legendaries.

The changes to pack openings now mean that we can’t rip open loads of duplicates, which is awesome.

But with 23 new legendaries, you will need to open almost 500 packs to pull 23 legendaries on average!

The best way to make as many competitive META decks with your budget is to dust the bad legendaries and craft the best legendaries.

Here are the best of the bunch from the new expansion – Knights of the Frozen Throne.

Best Knights of the Frozen Throne Legendary Cards to Craft

Neutral Legendaries

The Lich King

The Lich King HS Legendary Card

This guy had to be really strong, and it’s kind of nuts.

The Death Knight cards are incredibly strong, and the 8/8 for 8-mana is pretty decent.

It’s a better Ysera, can fit the Medivh slot if concerned about weapon removal, and will be a staple in a lot of decks – you need this card.


You can see all the Death Knight cards The Lich King generates here.

Death Knight Portraits

They made the Death Knights strong for most classes and almost all are playable. If you really like a certain class you can probably play the Death Knight and have a 50%+ win rate, here are the strongest of the bunch:

Malfurion the Pestilent

Malfurion the Pestilant HS Druid Death Knight PortraitDruid received some powerful defensive tools in Knights of the Frozen Throne and this Death Knight may be the best of them all.

The Hero Power is +3 attack or + gain 3 armor, with the new taunt cards Druid is going to remain one of the top classes.


Uther of the Ebon Blade

Uther of the Ebon Blade HS Paladin Death Knight PortraitI love this card, it combines healing with an insanely powerful hero power and a bunch of fun.

If you play midrange or control Pally this is a must inclusion.

Shadowreaper Anduin

Shadowreaper Auduin HS Priest Death Knight Portrait CardYou will clear all the threats on board and add a hero power that does 2 damage. Synergies perfectly with the new lifesteal mechanic and pushes control Priest decks up a notch.

Frost Lich Jaina

Frost Lich Jaina HS Mage Death Knight PortraitProducing Water Elementals with lifesteal in a class that needs healing and a little extra value in the longer games opens up some interesting deck building ideas for Mage.

Bloodreaver Gul’dan

Bloodreaver Gul'dan HS Warlock Death Knight Portrait

Warlock is back in this expansion, summoning all the demons that died in the game combined with some of the other new cards is insane.






Class Legendaries

With Death Knights being so powerful the class legendaries feel a little underwhelming.

Maybe that was a deliberate ploy on the designers part, maybe not. Either way, there are three that are really impactful and will be played for sure:


Hadronox HS Druid Legendary CardThe blueprint for the strongest Druid archetype has been laid out for us by the cards released in this expansion.

It’s all about the taunts and being defensive with control archetypes.

So dropping Hadronox late game is a huge value play.


The tokens summoned by Sindragosa generate random legendaries, so combined with the Frost Lich Death Knight card you have a ton of value for control mage.

It’s a dragon too which is worth noting.

Bolvar, Fireblood

Bolvar, Fireblood HS Paladin Legendary Card

I think this is one of the sleepers of the set. For 5-mana and 7 health this guy will stick on board, then it’s just up to you to pop those shields.

Using this guy as a 5/7 or 7/7 isn’t going to be too hard, so a good inclusion in aggro/divine shield decks.

Which Knights of the Frozen Throne Legendaries to Dust?

With every new expansion comes a bunch of new legendaries, but they are not all worth keeping and some will never be needed in competitive decks.

With the new pack changes we will not be opening a bunch of duplicates to dust, so it’s even more important you dust up those bad legendaries and use the dust to craft the best ones.

Here are some of the legendaries from Knights of the Frozen Throne that will not see serious competitive play. Dust em’, recycle, and make some of the best legendaries from Knights of the Frozen Throne:

Which Knights of the Frozen Throne Legendaries to Dust?

Death Knights to Dust

Deathstalker Rexxar

Deathstalker Rexxar HS Hunter Portrait Card

Most of us wanted to see some awesome Hunter cards to make it a Tier 1 class again, but this Death Knight isn’t the card.

It’s a value card with the Build-a-Beast hero power, but Hunter isn’t a value class.

Should be good for some meme decks.



Thrall, Deathseer

Thrall Deathseer HS Shaman Death Knight Portrait

Another card that puts fun before winning, Thrall, Deathseer.

Only playable when you have a board, the evolve mechanic is inconsistant, to say the least, and you lose one of the best hero powers in the game.




Class Legendaries to Dust

Archbishop Benedictus

Archbishop Benedictus HS Priest Legendary CardThrowing a copy of your opponent’s deck into yours means you have no real plan or idea how you’re going to win the game.

Good luck!





Lilian Voss

Lilian Voss HS Rogue CardRogue has awesome, cheap spells. Swapping them for random ones is more likely to disrupt your win condition than increase it.

Combined with Ethereal Peddler in a burgle deck there is potential for some RNG memes.




Neutral Legendaries to Dust

Prince Valanar, Prince Taldaram, and Prince Keleseth

The trio of Prince cards open up some interesting deck building ideas, but they aren’t strong enough to be auto-includes in any types of decks. Worth more to you as dust.

Prince Taldaram HS Legendary Card Prince Valanar HS Legendary Card Prince Keleseth HS Legendary Card

Wild Tier List August 2017: Best Wild Format Decks

The wild META has been a little stale over the last couple of months but a shake up is coming when Knights of the Frozen Throne is released later this month!

Until then here are the best wild decks to play in August. The lists are well refined now after having a few months with the same cards.

The Tier 1 decks are very strong, if you can play two or three of them well you can counter the META and hit high legend.

Wild is a lot less competitive than Standard and a great place to make use of all those powerful cards banished from Standard.

OnePirate Warrior
Reno Mage
Aggro Shaman
TwoEgg Token Druid
Midrange Hunter
Secret Mage
Inner Fire Priest
Midrange Token Paladin
ThreeJade Druid
Dragon Priest
Freeze Mage
Concede Shaman
Secret Paladin

See below for the decklists:

Wild Tier List August 2017

Tier One Wild Decks

If you just want to play the strongest decks and get to legend as fast as possible these are the decks to use.

Have at least two of these decks and change between them depending on the META and most common opponents.

Wild Tier List May 2017: Best Wild Format Decks

With the top 64 on wild May ladder qualifying for a Wild Tournament, it looks like Wild will be a lot more competitive than normal this month.

If you’re new to Wild, the META is a lot more volatile than Standard format. There are some solid Tier 1 decks however, so if climbing as fast as possible is your goal check out this list.

Which Journey to Un’Goro Legendaries to Dust?

With Journey to Un’Goro now fully released and all your gold and dust used, do you have all the legendaries you need to make the best decks?

I know I always seem to get a bunch of the worst legendaries and dust them up to make the ones I need. It sucks that you have to disenchant 4 legendaries to craft one, but it’s worth it for the best cards.

You can check the best legendaries from Un’Goro here if you’re not sure what to craft with your dust. Here are some of the worst legendaries from the Journey to Un’Goro set that aren’t going to be an auto-include:

Journey to Un’Goro Legendaries to Dust

Elise the Trailblazer

Elise the Trailblazer HS Card

Maybe there is a home in control Warrior for this Elise, but it’s not likely and it’s a slow card for 5 random cards that may not even help.






Hemet, Jungle Hunter

Hemet, Jungle Hunter HS Card

There are a lot of cards better than this one, seriously.

Disenchant this guy asap.






Lyra the Sunshard

Lyra the Sunshard HS Priest Card

It’s a shame that Priest got a pretty bad legendary again.

It’s going to be hard to get this minion to stick with these stats, and relying on random spells to win you the game isn’t a good idea. It didn’t work out for Lock n Load.




Sherazin, Corpse Flower

Sherazin, Corpse Flower HS Rogue Card

This card is way too slow, and then getting it back after playing 4 cards in a turn isn’t even a huge reward.







Pyros Elemental HS Mage Card 2 ManaA situational card at best, the vanilla stats per its mana cost will likely cause you to lose tempo and fall behind.

If you get this I’d dust it for a better card that will see a lot more play.

Best Journey to Un’Goro Legendary Cards to Craft

I hope you had plenty of luck opening your Journey to Un’Goro packs and ripped open plenty of legendaries.

Getting all the best legendaries you will need for META decks for the next few months is unlikely from packs, you’re going to need to spend some dust.

It’s expensive spending dust to make legendaries (1600 dust), so you want to make sure you’re crafting cards that will see a lot of play.

Don’t hold me accountable, but I was pretty accurate when recommending Mean Streets of Gadgetzan legendaries that were must haves.

With the Quest mechanic being a new tool, and most of the quests having insane rewards, it’s no surprise that you should craft these for your favorite classes.

There are a few other strong cards too, here are the legendaries from the Un’Goro set to try and add to your collection:

Best Journey to Un’Goro Legendary Cards to Craft

Neutral Legendaries

There are less really strong neutral legendary minions than in previous expansions, however these are going to be a staple in several deck archetypes:

Spiritsinger Umbra

Spiritsinger Umbra HS Card

This is an interesting card. Not always going to be easy to pull off on curve, but loads of potential at different stages of the game.

It’s one of those cards that has pseudo-taunt too, your opponent will have to kill it or be punished.





Ozruk HS Card

Blizzard has been generous with the quality of the Elemental cards in general.

With a large amount of low-cost Elementals and other synergies, at turn 9 it’s realistic that you will be able to drop Ozruk as a 5/15 or a 5/20.

With Taunt that’s pretty crazy.



Class Legendaries

Most of the quests are good enough to build a deck around, there are some pretty decent class legendaries too, here is the best of the bunch:


Druid – Jungle Giants Quest

Jungle Giants HS Druid Quest Card Barnabus the Stomper HS Druid Card

Shouldn’t be too hard to activate this quest with some early ramp. Once your minions cost 0, and you play an 8/8 for 5 mana things are going to get crazy.

Priest – Awaken the Makers

Awaken the Makers HS Priest Card Amara Warden of Hope

Control Priest is going to be a top-tier deck when the new expansion is out. Deathrattle minions are usually pretty awesome, then you get rewarded with an 8/8 for 5 mana and 40 health!

Shaman – Unite the Murlocs

Unite the Murlocs HS Shaman Card Megafin HS Shaman Card

Murloc Shaman is going to be a real deck with this quest and some other cards coming with the expansion. It combines card draw with a load of crazy murlocs.

Warlock – Lakkari Sacrifice

Lakkari Sacrifice HS Warlock Card Nether Portal HS Warlock Card

This is the real meaning of infinite value. Discardlock is a powerfularchetypee, now you have the added reward of 3/2 Imps popping out a portal afterwards.

Class Minions

King Mosh

King Mosh HS Warrior Card

This dino is a pretty efficient board clear tool in control Warrior with a whirlwind effect, and it leaves a 9/7 body on the board.






Kalimos, Primal Lord

kalimos Primal Lord HS Shaman Card

This card is crazy strong. You can see all of the Elemental Invocation options here.

Shaman Elemental decks are going to be really strong.





Swamp King Dred

Swamp King Dred HS Hunter Card

Not only is this guy a 9/9 for 7 mana, he’s also a beast, and he immediately eats up any minions your opponent plays.

Insane value, awesome mechanic, and a must play in beast Hunter decks.

List of Potions You Can Get from Kabal Chemist

Kabal Chemist HS Tri-class Card

One of the cards from the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan expansion was Kabal Chemist.

It’s a tri-class card playable by Mage, Warlock, and Priest, and the battlecry adds a random potion to your hand.


Some of the potions are pretty good, check out the list below for a list of all the possible potions you can recieve.

List of Potions You Can Get from Kabal Chemist

Keep in mind that there are 10 potions, so you have a 10% chance to receive any particular card. Worth weighing up your odds against other plays if you’re searching for a particular out.

CardMana CostEffect
Freezing Potion0Freeze an enemy.
Potion of Polymorph3Secret: After your opponent plays a minion, transform it into a 1/1 sheep.
Volcanic Potion3Deal 2 damage to all minions.
Potion of Madness1Gain control of an enemy minion with 2 or less Attack until end of turn.
Pint-Size Potion1Give all enemy minions -3 Attack this turn only.
Greater Healing Potion4Restore 12 Health to a friendly character.
Dragonfire Potion6Deal 5 damage to all minions except Dragons.
Bloodfury Potion3Give a minion +3 Attack. If it's a Demon, also give it +3 Health.

Decks to Counter Pirate Warrior With

We are only 2-3 days into the Gadgetzan META and things are still very unstable, but one thing we do know is that the Pirate tribe got a massive boost in strength.

Pirate Warrior is very popular on ladder, mostly due to being very easy and quick to play. It’s also really annoying to loose too as it only takes a few rounds and you feel powerless when they draw well.

But fear not! There are some decks that counter Pirate Warrior really well, so you can shut them down, counter the META, and bag some easy wins.

Decks to Counter Pirate Warrior With

Stancifka’s Rank 1 Legend Renolock

Stancifka Rank 1 Legend Renolock Gadgetzan ListThis is the list that only took Stancifka a couple of days to climb to rank one legend with. So, you know he killed off a lot of pirate warriors and had a good win ratio vs the deck.

Renolock is not the easiest deck to play but once momentum is on your side it just gets stronger and stronger.

Control the board while healing and keeping out of lethal range and set up the Leeroy Jenkins + Power Overwhelming + Faceless Manipulator combo.





apDrop’s Pirate Rogue

apDrop Pirate Rogue Gadgetzan DeckapDrop was 13-0 vs Pirate Warrior when I was watching him play this list on his stream.

This list is perfectly balanced to shut down Pirate Warriors.

You have taunts to stop their weapon going face, loads of burst of your own, and spells to help clear the board without sacrificing face or minion damage.





Kolento’s Jade Druid

Kolento Jade Golem Druid DeckI watched Kolento play a lot of his Jade Druid and he was shutting down Pirate Warriors.

The early turns can be a little shaky, but the synergy of Fandral Staghelm with various cards can turn the board.

Cycling through Gadgetzan gives you a card advantage, and the 5/10 Ancient of War puts up a wall they find difficult to get through.

Which Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Legendaries to Dust?

With Mean Streets of Gadgetzan released and all your packs opened do you still need some of the best legendaries from the expansion?

You need to dust the bad legendaries that will not be used much and craft the ones that will see more play. Dust is a finite resource though, so you have to make careful decisions.

Here are some of the legendaries that I recommend dusting though, they aren’t going to be an auto-include in any decks and are just fun cards at best.

Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Legendaries to Dust

Here are some of the legendaries that aren’t seeing immediate play, and don’t look like they are META breaking or worth sitting in your collection when you could be crafting better ones;

Genzo, the Shark

Genzo, the Shard HS Legendary CardIf like me, you got this guy from a pack then you should dust him.

He fits into a niche mill deck somewhere I’m sure, but it’s not worth keeping Genzo for that use.



Mayor Noggenfogger

Mayor Noggenfogger HS Legendary CardI can’t even image what deck you would want to put Mayor Noggenfogger in. He reminds me of Mogor the Ogre and I never looked back after dusting that one.

Turn him into 400 dust towards a decent legendary, or some other cards.



Auctionmaster Beardo

Auctionmaster Beardo HS Legendary Card

This is another legendary with a fringe use. You still need to pay 2 mana for your hero power so how are you going to fit in spells + more hero powers?

Turn this guy into dust and if you don’t have Patches the Pirate yet it’s better spent in that direction.

Madam Goya

Madam Goya HS Legendary CardThis is an interesting card and there is loads of fun you can have with Madam Goya.

But with so many good legendaries to dust it’s not worth keeping for those low tier fun decks.
