This is a pretty common list, with some modifications. I've always been a fan of BGH, Silence and Faceless Manipulator in Control Decks, but in the last few expansions they've been outmatched by higher value cards. Not a lot of people expect these cards so they will play recklessly and you can capitalize on this.
Some useful Combo's:
Armor Vendor/Shieldmaiden -> Shield Slam
Headmaster Kel'Thuzad -> Coerce/Shield Slam
Rattlegore -> Faceless Manipulator

Okay so against Warlock I've come up with a somewhat viable solution. When he plays Envoy Rustwix, you copy it with Faceless Manipulator. In addition I've included Vectus in the deck as it synergizes with Taelan and Kargath. It's very greedy to try and get 2 good Deathrattles from Vectus, but you might get away with it. Using this strategy you get 6 additional cards and there is a possible scenario where you get even more than that from the Demon Prime legendary, which re-summons Rustwix. Of course, this is very rng based, but I actually end up winning half of the games with this cheesy strategy. Only downside is that Vectus is not a popular card at all so I would not suggest crafting it.
Against Priest DO NOT PLAY RATTLEGORE, he will copy your shit and make you feel like an idiot, do it only if you know he has no Soul Mirror and the 1-attack debuff/mind control combo. If you don't play Rattlegore you can outvalue him in the late game.
Against Mage always prioritize using your hero power and trying to get Shieldmaiden/Scrap Golem. If you feel like his 10 Mana combo is coming, use Bulwark, they usually concede after this.
Against mirror matchups, wait until they play Rattlegore, then use Faceless Manipulator on it and/or silence his Rattlegore. They usually insta-concede after this. Silas Darkmoon also works, but is not as effective.
If you play a lot vs aggro, consider adding Rancor/Mor'shan Elite. I feel like the meta is quite Spell/Control heavy, hence why they aren't in my list.
For any other questions feel free to ask.
Edit: Thank you everyone for the upvotes, I've also made some minor changes to the list, I'll update it tomorrow. I've also updated the Warlock matchup!
