Please, any replacements for Maelstrom Portal? I'm unable to craft them
I've just used that deck to beat Lich King on the 3rd try, thanks!
Jade Lightning is decent removal and it adds a minion to the board for use with Flametongue Totem, Bloodlust, Evolve, or Thrall, Deathseer.
Replacement for Malestorm Portal?
200 dust. You can't replace this card. It's really good, and it's a token generator. Just do the Karazhan wing for this already.
It's not really 200 dust, because you need to own the adventure to get it. So it's really the price in gold of the first wing (7000g?)
I'm sure if it was craftable everybody would have both this and Kindly Grandmother, but unfortunately they are locked :/
It's only 700 gold, around a week or two you should have enough gold
Just stop playing arena/buying packs for a while, do the daily quests (I always mulligan all 40g quests, regardless of class/etc) and you're good to go, considering it's f2p. 700g is not so hard to come by. EDIT: And it's Karazhan! There's a ton of very good cards in there, it's totally worth the gold/farming.
Is the pirate package necessary to climb to rank 5 ?
I have the dust for patches but it seems better to save it for something that is not rotating out next year
Patches does indeed rotate next spring. It's a really good package, likely to be in many decks until then. If you only have like 1600 dust then you can use Argent Squires instead and sacrifice a lot.
It's a turn one play that gets 2 bodies on board, synergizes with flametongue totem and is anti-weapon for your Pally, Rogue, Hunter, and Warrior matchups.
No other cards in the game do what this deck wants to do as efficiently (maybe pre-nerf gain +2 attack pirate) and they are neutral, Patches the Pirate is used in like every Rogue deck because it's just that good. I crafted him 2 weeks into MSoG and haven't regretted it, he's just enables so many decks. HOWEVER, a death knight hero card is much more worth dust IMO, they enable entire archetypes.
Maybe just play a different deck, with cooler legendaries.
Seems like you playing this deck wrong. Try to be more greedy on your evolve combos.
You can fill a board with 4-5 cheap minions. (primalfin, firefly etc.) and force your opponent to use his aoe removals. They are always scared of bloodlust if a shaman has 4+ minions on board.
It helped my winrate to remove the pirates (+20%) and go for a more greedier list.
Hope this helps you.
I replaced drakkari and the pirate package for 2 stonehill defenders a second chain gang and the lichking. These changes helped me so much in the lategame. Played this deck from rank 12 to rank 4 with a solid wr of 72%
Update: Close to rank 2 - w/r still on 68%
I went with these same changes after reading your comments, and your right on point. These changes made a huge difference in my winrate. They only games I have lost is when I draw out terribly. Thanx again!
Tried it out for 20 games. Ended up with 15 wins to 5 loses from rank 14 to 9. I replaced the Drakkari Enchanter with Rattling Rascal but will replace it with a second Saronite Chain Gang later.
Updating after 140+ games - Seems like the higher ranks (5 - 3) can deal with this deck pretty aggressively. I do win most games (76W-70L) but not nearly enough as it could. I updated the deck to the second devolve (instead of Aya), which I think is a good idea because there're a lot of Druids, but this deck has trouble with Priests and sometimes Paladins too. Especially when the draw is a bit off curve. Could there be a replacement regarding the Bloodlust? Yes, sometimes a topdeck Bloodlust is an insta win, but more times than not I find 2 Bloodlust's in my hand with a small board
very nice and fun deck, value is very important in hearthstone and thrall give minions 2costs more! it's insane with just 5 cost
- drakki echanter + master evolution
here my 2 game play vs paladin and paladin, enjoy :)
I made 9-3 playing this deck with x2 Saronite Chain Gang instead of 1x Drakkari Enchanter and x1 Jade Chieftain as a replacement for Aya Blackpaw
How did you replace one Drakkari with 2 Saronites? That's 31 cards
There's already a Saronite in the deck lol it's 30 cards
