Here's the list that carried me to Legend for the first time.
Reason for that was the local meta I encountered from D3 (also in line with meta reports): a very strong presence of Pirate Warriors, Demon Hunters and mirror Discolocks, and Freeze proved indeed a winning choice against all of those.
The explanation is that while Taunt also seems a good solution against Aggro, you still leave the initiative of trades to them, especially if you are behind (quite likely against DH and Warrior).
Instead Freeze steals back the initiative, or it secures it for you.
Do notice that the Freeze Package is obviously meta dependant: if for any reasons PW, DH and other board-based Aggro disappear or shrink from the radars, Freeze should be proportionately replaced with other cards.
Maiev Shadowsong can (and probably should) be replaced with Loatheb. I keep Maiev here because that is exactly the list I used for my climb. Notice that she can act as a Freeze on steroids, so she's coherent with the plan.
The Soularium can hardly be replaced, sorry.
