This list took me from rank 3 to top 250 Legend. The gameplan is control with bursting down opponent at the end while controlling the board and chipping away at the opponent with shadowform. It can beat tempo rogue and control warrior if you draw good but warrior a lot of the time has too much armor gain to deal with. If you get northshire down against rogue and control it with wild pyro and scaleworm, you can win.
SIDE NOTE: I tried replacing Prophet Velen with Archmage Vargoth and found better results! He's more flexible and still allows for the 10 damage burst at a cheaper cost!
SIDE SIDE NOTE: Try to replace the 2nd Shadowform for a Zilliax and let me know some good results
Check out Dekkster's video here where he explained how to use the deck and showcased it!
Check out Jeleniowatyy's video with a slightly different list, where he replaced the squashling and holy nova with shadow madness and zilliax which is teched against rogue!
Kiwiinbacon made a video showcasing the deck! Check it out here --
vs a bomb warrior, my 2 last cards. God...
Looks like he had 99 problems...
It is bad and showing a SINGLE win at rank 4, L3882 and L8571 is laughable proof that it got to top legend 250. Hey, any legend rank under L2000 might as well be rank 20 because you're losing the majority of your games if your down that low. Ok if I played a really bad deck over and over, eventually I could show you a single win happening (anyone could do that). I could show you an isolated win using Dragon Murloc Ctrl Hunter, are you going to believe I actually used that deck to get top 250 legend? If any of those deck reviewers actually had confidence in the deck, they could show a sample size of at least 3 games being played back to back but they wouldn't and couldn't because this deck would never win 3 games in a row. I don't think it could win 2 games in a row.
It's amazing that I play this game for 5 years and still don't have a single copy of Shadorform.
This is me and Force of Nature
Same here... Never noticed that before.
Seriously? The concept of "Shadowform" was so exciting, after release, I always had one copy, at least. Not saying, that it were any good, or needed, but I always kept the possibility open. ;)
IT's just a clunky card. If it was 2 mana or a quest card or something it'd work much better than it does now.
I'm gonna try this deck out with +1 Velen and +1 Zilliax and take out +1 Holy Nova and +1 Squashling.
Totaly useless vs heal druid and bomb warrior
This deck is good....if it works.....sadly most of the time it doesn’t.
I spent the last of my dust creating this deck, and honestly i think it's absolutely terrible. The deck is extremely situational and you need to draw a number of specific cards to be able to do anything. it destroys aggro, but get's destroyed by warrior and tempo. I usually play in the lower ranks (rank 5 to rank legend) but at the moment i'm in the higher ranks trying to climb the ladder. So far i've lost 18 games in rank 15+ and won 6. So if you are considering crafting the deck i would advice you to think otherwhise, but if you have all the needed cards already, try it out and see what you think. :)
What did u expect? because someone hit Legend with this Deck everyone else can too?
Can't argue with that. I ain't blaming anyone, just givin' a heads up so that noone repeats my mistake. And about "What did u expect? because one hit Legend with this deck everyone else can too?", i think Zion7 covered that pretty thoroughly. But thanks for the... interesting contribution.
I might try to tech in Harrison Jones or Acidic Swamp Ooze for bomb warrior and tempo rogue.
Zilliax seems like a nice option too vs aggro
I was thinking before launch that Vargoth would go perfectly with Shadowform. Cool stuff.
abillity is not spell, you know
Yeah I know. To repeat the spell and buff hero power.
I really like this Deck but unfortunately didn't have second Mass Hysteria so i get Zilliax instead -1 Shadowform and get Power Word: Replicate I'm not sure this is good decision or not and also Shadowform is the core of the deck but I like how Replicate perform like sometime u can get 4 Archmage Vargoth on turn9 and turn 10 Mindblast for 25 damage ! or Holy nova deal 10 all and heal 10 XD
But the problem I face is 9 live Mech Hunter I clear all his big mech minion but he just 9 live over and over again so I out of removal to hold with it Maybe I should get Mass Hyseria in ?
You should look for a wild version of this deck or at least remove power word replicate and play this list in standard..
