What do you think about -1 shield block + 1 brawl - 1 slam +1 Cruel Task Master
+1 implies ""better" comeback. Although maybe a little less card draw.
The same goes for -1 slam, but you may have more combo chances, or a little bit more 1 health minions clear. I consider both of them situational
This deck is very solid if you know how to play it (not an easy deck to play properly). Thanks for the post, i was struggling at rank 6 (3stars) today, and decided to play this deck. went 11-0 and currently at rank 4 (5stars) before calling it a day. i also like this deck-list much more than kitkat's list.
I'm playing this deck except I replaced the acolytes with piloted shredders. It's working really well for me. I feel like the acolytes serve no purpose when the only activator you have is death's bite, and the slam makes up for the card draw. I think I've probably won either 10/10 or 9/10 games.
You shouldn't ever remove acolytes from a control warrior list. It's one of the key cards to winning the early game.
A large number of people have already done exactly that. Kitkatz was one of the first that I saw and while I initially thought it was a huge mistake like you stated -- it plays very well and you have enough cycle via shield blocks and slams. It does provide the option of being able to not draw cards as well in a fatigue match-up.
