    Malygos and Miracle are on the same level and fine decks to ladder with. Just pick the one you like the most. Deathrattle though is just too weak in the current metagame.

    Having strong 4-6 mana minions is good against Hunter, so if you want to improve this matchup I would suggest cutting some lategame cards (7+) and add f.ex. Bloodhoof Brave, Harrison Jones, Cairne Bloodhoof. Tinkmaster Overspark is also a good addition. It is very hard to make this matchup better than 55 %, so if you face a lot of Midrange Hunters, I would suggest switching to a Shaman deck. On (high-) Legend Midrange Hunter is almost non-existent, because playing it is from a statistical point of view just wrong.

    I think the Curator is at its best in the Yogg- Saron Control Warrior. C'thun does have very few cards to cut, because of the Cultists, C'thun and the three 7 mana minions.

    It is okay in the slot of Gorehowl. Better against Aggro for sure

    Personnaly I would not recommend playing Antonidas, because he is too slow in the current meta. But if you really want to play him, you can cut Yogg- Saron.

    You can play Elise Starseeker to improve slower matchups or Baron Geddon for Zoo and Shaman

    You're completely right. Menagerie Warden is among the best cards of the set. I just couldn't find anything interesting to write about the card. After Menagerie Warden becomes available, you just type "beast" in your collection -> put every good beast into the deck. Then add 2 Wrath, 2 Innervate, 2 Swipe, no Wild Growth, 2 Mark, 2 Azure Drake, 1 Sir Finley and the Curator. Voilà, you have a Tier 1- 1.5 deck that just plays stuff on curve and plays Mysterious Challenger ehrm Menagerie Warden on Turn 6 to get ridicolous value.

    Yeah without Shieldmaiden it is impossible to replace Justicar Trueheart. But when Ironforge Portal comes out, it would be a okayish replacement.

    Assuming equal play skill, Priest should be unfavored. The thing is that only bad players or people who love it play Priest nowadays, because the class is horrible.

    I think your experience was just bad luck. Zoo Warlock is not a fantastic matchup, but it is a good one. Just mulligan accordingly and you will do the majority of time fine against them :) If you want to further improve the matchup, Dark Iron Skulker is a good idea, but I'd suggest cutting Leeroy and not the 2nd Teacher. Leeroy is not a key component of the deck and only very good against the already good matchups (Control decks), whereas Teacher can be crucial against Zoo Warlock and Hunter. Hope I could help, if not, let me know. Cheers :) !

    I think Ramp Druid is a good matchup with this deck. You have a lot of ways to handle their big guys, the only way to lose is if they get you low and deal lethal damage with C'thun. Against Druid you should mulligan for Doomsayer, Aldor Peacekeeper, Truesilver Champion and Equality, so that you can handle any initial pressure.

    I have a big sample size against both decks on the ladder and at tournaments. So yes both decks are good matchups for Control Warrior.

    You just stall and remove minions in the early and midgame. Your weapons, Ghoul, Acolyte etc. all line up very well against Zoo's minions and then later you win by making Patrons or going for a combo finish.

    You play Rafaam when the opponent does not have access to Brawl anymore, because he played the Golden Monkey.

    The standard, more popular lists of Control Priest have very few threats and play a lot of card draw with Acolyte of Pain, PW: Shield and Northshire. So they have a hard time pressuring you, when they don't want to draw any cards. Therefore I would recommend playing only Deathlord very early, when you can make sure that it dies before Turn 6 or once they need to play their Cabals. If you don't give them any targets, because you don't play any minions the Priest will sooner or later be in the position where he has to play them, because he is in danger of burning cards. I keep Brawl against Control decks, because one of the few ways you can lose against them, especially against bad players is if they play recklessly for no reason minions. Especially Priest sometimes has to play into Brawl to have a better chance to win and good players will do that early (because it is less likely for you to have Brawl in the early game, whereas around Turn 10 it is super likely). Something minor that a lot of people miss, even the best, is that sometimes you don't kill Priest's Deathlord. I had games where I left a Deathlord for 10 turns on the board, to make sure that they don't give me free card or even worse-> get something valuable they can Entomb.
