Thanks to everyone who said they like the deck :) Feel free to upvote it on Hearthhead if you want to give me that extra little ego boost. Here's the link again
I'll respond in reverse order
I love this deck but have a quick question. Are you using 2x upgrade! Or only one?
I try to always keep the list on Hearthhead up to date with what I am actually playing in-game. The other day after I said the deck was finished and official, I made one last stealth swap of:
-1 Upgrade! (from 2 to 1)
+1 Murloc Tidehunter (from 0 to 1)
so if you look on Hearthhead, that's what I recommend and am playing right now. It feels weird to find a swap in-game that I like but not update the guide, but I can see how me constantly changing it could be annoying so I'll start keeping a little log of when I make changes. But I consider this deck now basically finished and I've been working on other classes for the next Team Liquid tournament, so it shouldn't change any more until next patch.
Why the change? Upgrade! can be very useful but the second copy starts to pull you too far in one direction where it's easy for your opponent to counter you (taunts/oozes), same with Murloc Tidehunter in the other direction (AoE). Ideally you want to be striking from both the ground and the air at the same time. So I'm liking this mix currently :)tl;dr
Gyll, this deck is pretty sweet. I've been running a modified version for a bit now and I think I actually enjoy having 2 whirlwinds in the deck. I'll try to get 1-2 frothing berserkers out with a few other minions on the field, commanding shout, then a whirlwind or two.. it can lead to some pretty stupid numbers.
That is impressive! I had a few similar plays when I was trying out Wild Pyromancer where things just got utterly silly with Commanding Shout & Frothing Berserker, but I don't think I ever got him up to 22 attack. I'd be curious to see the swaps you made. I don't generally like Whirlwind/Slam/Brawl/Cleave/Execute in this deck because I hate sitting there against a control deck with a situational card in my hand while they build up mana. But it does work as sort of a pump spell with the Berserkers so that is pretty cool.

Yes the Hearthhead link is up to date with both the latest patch and with what I've been playing in-game, so snag those Commanding Shouts & go forth
I've been meaning to make a gameplay video but the deck has been in flux since the patch so I kept outdating my own videos. Now that it's basically finalized (and now that I can say someone asked me to, Thanks Estate!) I will definitely be making a gameplay video with the deck this week.
