04/05/2014 12:28 AMLast test season I got to Rank 3 with it; I'm currently at Rank 9 and hoping to grind my way up to Legendary. Pokey, do you think a more controlley build is better for the current meta? I'd like a better long game against control decks, but I kind of like how horribly this deck tends to destroy aggro.

Cairne vs. Sunwalker is one of those decisions I've been back and forth on. The taunt is just so, so useful though.
I think a more control orientated build is as efficient as it was last season. Not a lot has really changed for heavily focused control decks, and you still see those heavy control decks in the highest ranks: 5-Legend. You know the decks; Control Druid, Handlock and Control Warrior.
I wouldn't think it's any better for this season, personally, they're still up there, and Watcher Druid is perfectly fine getting to Legendary still. Best thing to do is see how you're faring in the upper ranks, and make any slight adjustments you require. Your deck is solid.
Carine Vs. Sunwalker is very interesting. They're quite similar cards with Sunwalkers divine shield acting like a lesser version of Cairnes deathrattle. If you don't own Cairne, Sunwakler is a great replacement. If you do own Cairne, and I think you do, well that's a tougher choice. They're both eaten alive by silence, and Sunwalker is susceptible to Black Knight. Just falls down to which has helped you more over X amount of matches.
I was running Cairne and Sunwalkers at one point in a Beefy style deck, they both managed well against larger minions but Cairne plays a little better against smaller minions (due to a small minion being able to remove Sunwalkers Divine Shield).
Right now there's still plenty of rush and aggro around, so Sunwalker's still a great pick.
