Using this deck to climb to Legend in 2022. Played since 2014 (after Beta release), where I mained HandLock and Freeze Mage throughout Classic, Naxx, GvG and onwards. Never reached legend (best result was back-to-back Rank 4 with HandLock), so this might be a shot at redemption after all these long years.

Tinkmaster Overspark is a tech-choice against both Miracle Rogue and other control decks. Think Ramp Druid, mirror-matchups against Warrior, HandLock with turn 4 Giant/Drake etc. 

Deathwing is a card I include for two reasons. Number one is that I like the card aesthetically, number two is that it's a clutch removal which can rescue a do-or-die situation against control. Hell, even against Zoo or Midrange I've seen Deathwing save the day. Sure, Ysera is a big value card, but in such a clutch situation I would pick the former over the latter if it means rolling the dice and snatching a win from the jaws of defeat. 

Keep your tech-cards in mind based on what you face on the ladder. You'll be able to cut one of the following cards: Tinkmaster Overspark, Acolyte of Pain, Sen'jin Shieldmasta.

  • The Black Knight and Big Game Hunter are excellent choices when you're bombarded with both Druid and HandLock. 
  • Acidic Swamp Ooze is the preferred pick over Harrison Jones when facing a lot of Paladins, Midrange Shamans, Hunters and mirror-matchups. With double Acolyte of Pain, I don't see why you would need even more draw. Plus, the low cost means you'll be able to hero-power/slam/execute/etc. aside from weapon removal. 
  • Spellbreaker/Ironbeak Owl for Priest/HandLock
  • Doomsayer is my anti-Aggro/Face/Zoo weapon of choice. Reset the board or stall a turn, let your opponent waste tempo/mana/resources on it and buy yourself time/a clean board. 
  • Sen'jin Shieldmasta can be replaced by Twilight Drake. The more control/less aggro you face, the drake increases in value. 

Edit 28/05: Just blasted through Bronze and Silver, losing only two games on the way. Swapped out Tinkmaster for Big Game Hunter due to little to no mirror matchups, not a single Miracle rogue in sight and an overwhelming amount of HandLocks.

30/5 Halfway through Gold, but every other day the 'meta' sways. One day you face only control and get put back to rank 10 Gold with no stars, the other day only zoo/face/token and roll easily to rank 5.
