    The Switcheroo nerf is for standard, whereas in Wild the card is going to be flat-out banned it seems.

    Frost Lich is pretty impossible to replace directly so she should be a priority. 

    For possible swaps on the other 3 legendaries you mention, you could try switching for these if you have them:

    Hexlord Malacrass -> Echo of Medivh 

    Luna's Pocket Galaxy -> Emperor Thaurissan 

    Inkmaster Solia - Tortollan Pilgrim

    Inkmaster is helpful beyond LPG, so I'm quite happy with her performance overall. 

    And I'm not interested in the "standard" lists built around N'zoth.

    I'm digging the Pressure Plate secret. I play mainly Wild and this has interesting potential as a niche but very powerful tool to jam up combos that depend on synergies between minions and spells.

    Hey, sorry for not replying so long. I've been really swamped IRL. 

    Geddon for Flamestrike is okay, though I stand by my assessment that Flamestrike is too weak these days. You might consider Volcanic Potion for the earlier AoE to deal with swarmy aggro decks.

    Solia for Emperor is also reasonable but I'd say Zilliax or Loatheb are also good depending on what your choices are.

    Glad you are enjoying it Obscurity. I definitely enjoy the flexibility and it definitely CAN win against everything. Whether or not it will win against everything is up in the air of course xD

    It's a Reno/Highlander style deck so consistency is a major issue for sure. Sometimes your draws just whiff. But I like the deck way too much to stop playing it.

    Hey there! Your username seems familiar so yeah, I think we played a game.

    I'm not running Healbot right now because aggro decks tend to blow past the 8 health heal and slower decks don't deal damage in the early-to-mid game so Healbot just sits in hand or comes out as a pricey 3/3. Against aggro I would rather topdeck a Kazakus, Reno or AoE than a Healbot.

    I think Healbot is much stronger in Renolock since 1) they are always lifetapping so Healbot almost always gets value even against slow decks and 2) they have a much better suite of AoE so they can recover board better after a low-tempo play like Healbot.

    Well I hope you have the cards or a lot of dust on your hands xD

    It's a Reno deck so it has a pretty ridiculous number of legendaries.

    Glad you liked the guide!

    Haha that's alright. It's there for people who are interested. Plus I got a good response on the reddit thread I made. It's all good!

    Yeah the arsenal of Polymorph effects and Kazakus can be very strong. There's always the nonsense high-rolls from Big Priest but you can't do anything about that. Although I will say I have won games where by opponent when Barnes into Yshaarj into Catrina because i managed to get a Kazakus potion out on turn 6 using Coin+Inkmaster+10 mana potion for 0

    Part of why I enjoy this deck is the flexibility it has. :)
