Exciting news, News of Standard is in the air and I have adjusted the deck accordingly. This deck is highly experimental. I'm unsure of how well cards like Arathi Weaponsmith will do with Death's Bite now being out of the game. Shieldmaiden and Sludge Belcher are also big hits.
This is a much lower curve control Warrior with Elise Starseeker to win control match ups. With this deck you don't have to worry about drawing cards against another control deck since if you draw Golden Monkey, fatigue wont matter. That part hasn't changed with the advent of standard.
It might actually correct to now make this deck super slow since the removal of the majority of difficult to deal with deathrattle cards means aggro is taking a HUGE hit.
Compare it to Living Roots. Living Roots, as we all know, is a really good card. With this card, instead of a second 1/1, you get a 1/3 weapon. It's pretty clear that a Heavy Axe is a lot better than a Wisp. And just like Living Roots, the weapon allows this card to be extremely useful in the late game as an extra Execute enabler.
In Wild, this card is even more beautiful. For too long, warriors have gotten immeasurably screwed by minions with divine shield like Annoy-o-Tron and Shielded Minibot. Well NO LONGER, my fellow brothers in arms. Finally, we have a cheap way to ping of divine shields as Warriors.
The dream with this card is you're playing against an aggressive deck. They turn Leper Gnome. You smack down N'Zoth's First Mate and put that diseased gnome out of it' misery. Then, to follow up they play Knife Juggler. You play a 2-drop or even just Armor Up! and trade your 1/1 and you weapon into the Knife Juggler. Congratulations, your 1-drop just traded two for one with 3 mana worth of stuff and you still have a 1/1 Rusty Hook left over to destroy something else.
This is Muster for Battle except you're paying a 3rd of the mana for a 3rd of the 1/1s and still getting almost the full weapon.
Added some stuff because new cards came out.
EDIT: teched in The Black Knight because of all the targets
