Patches the Pirate is the MVP from Mean Streets of Gadgetzan. He’s even finding his way into Zoolock builds as this Trump Discardlock w Patches and Pirates Deck shows.
Works great too, the extra burst and the Bloodsail Corsairs are going to get value in most match ups as there are lots of weapon classes on ladder.
There are loads of different Dragon Priest lists with different tech cards in but this list has an interesting choice – Defender of Argus.
And, this Thijs Dragon Priest w Defender of Argus went 8-0 at a recent tournament win so it’s proven. A lot of Priest lists lack that little bit of extra burst to trade up or finish an opponent, or stopping aggressive decks going face. This tech choice sorts this out.
There is also a Holy Nova instead of a Dragonfire Potion for a little extra healing and more tempo on board. It’s a really strong deck against all the other META decks, give it a go.
Dragon Warrior was one of the top-tier decks over the past few months and although it was overshadowed by Pirates with the release of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan it’s a still a really strong deck.
In fact, with the addition of Patches the Pirate and Small-Time Buccaneer it’s even stronger than before.
This is the deck list Thijs used in a recent tournament he won. It’s really on ladder too.
This is the Trump N’Zoth Control Warrior Dec 16. Alley Armorsmith and Don Han’Cho are in the list from the latest expansion – Mean Streets of Gadgetzan.
Still a solid deck in the META and this list generates a lot of armor giving you the chance to force a win by fatigue if you have to.
This is the MrYagut Rank 1 Legend Miracle Pirate Rogue Deck.
A tech choice of Violet Teacher over other options like Ooze, or Conceal. It works well as the tokens are good vs aggro decks and force opponents to use their AOE spells.
Very strong deck in the current META and an excellent choice to ladder up with.
This is the Strifecro Jade Druid w Bloodmage Deck was playing in the Esports Superstars tournament streamed on the elcgaming Twitch channel.
I thought it was interesting that he chose to cut an Anicent of War and add Bloodmage Thalnos. It turned out working really well for him.
It makes sense if you think about it. A stronger early game, with card draw spell damage means a stronger mid and late game position and more chance to start growing those Jade Golems.
This tech change will work well on ladder too, give it a go.
Another deck using the Aviana and Kun the Forgotten King synergy are C’Thun Druid decks.
The win condition with this deck is to play Aviana, then Kun the Forgotten King for 1 mana and refresh all your mana.
Now you can play Brann, C’Thun buffing cards, and of course C’Thun. Don’t forget that with Brann Bronzebeard on the board C’Thun deals twice the damage.
You can easily deal 60 + damage making this one of the larger OTK decks like Raging Worgen OTK Warrior was before the nerfs.
There are loads of decks coming together with the Aviana and Kun the Forgotten King combo. Aviana means you can play Kun for 1 mana, then refresh all your mana and start playing all your other minions for 1 mana.
If you get to this point you’ve probably won, this is an insane combo. Fun to play, give it a go!
This is an interesting Priest list and it’s the Zetalot Gadgetzan Zoo N’Zoth Priest list that he played into legend ranks.
It’s built much like a zoo list with lots of low-cost minions and cards to help value trade and win the board.
Good to see Herald Volazj in the list, this legendary hasn’t found a good place in a Priest deck before.
Effective, and fun list, and if you curve into Ragnaros then N’Zoth there aren’t many decks that take back the board and win with tempo.
If you want a strong N’Zoth Control Warrior list this is the Fibonacci Gadgetzan Legend N’Zoth Control Warrior list he played to legend this season. The only new card from Mean Streets of Gadgetzan is Alley Armorsmith, but there has been quite a few card changes from last month’s lists to accommodate the META.
