This deck is total useless, 10match 9 loose

I started playing this deck for fun and must say that it is rather powerful with 12W-7L so far, so the reason of your losses is in your playstyle and misplays. Could you please provide a few replays?

Can you substitute Ancestral Knowledge with Mana Tide Totem?

Yes, Mana Tide Totem has a great synergy with Evolve. The main problem is that you won't be able to dig for Evolve in the turn you need  it, and you have to hope that your board survives for more turns than with Ancestral Knowledge. I recommend you to craft it when you have the dust.

How about including Barnes in this one? The cost of the 1/1 he summons can be of great value for an evolve, i'm just not sure what to swap. I already swapped Loot Hoarder for Thalnos and 1 Arcanosmith for a Maelstrom Portal...

If you were forced to include Maelstrom Portal, you should swap out a card that is not that good against aggro, such as Ancestral Knowledge or Loot Hoarder.

Wouldn't Novice Engineer be better than Loot Hoarder? You get instant value from her and then can use evolve immediately without losing card draw.

The one attack difference is really big though, and it can help you build a board that you can use Evolve on.

Is nerfed Tuskar Totemic good enough for this deck? he still help you to get thing from below sooner but other than that he is a barely better version of Razorfen hunter

I'd say that there are better drops than him, but I am far from finished testing this deck post-nerf. I have been testing Ragnaros the Firelord and adding C'thun cards (for insane Twin Emperor Vek'lor + Evolve combo), but without major success. I am currently trying Fireguard Destroyer and Flamewreathed Faceless, and it seems okay.

I think he still good enough, he still have synergy with Thing from Below and the taunt totem can help protect you other minions.

This deck has been surprisingly good, I managed to reach rank 10 with it last Sunday with ease, haven't played it since then, but I think it has potential to reach rank 5 at least.

I agree, In Totem builds I still think he is viable. I still run him in my Totem Shaman.

On other hand, the spell damage totem is nothing but 0-2\potential random 2 drop in this deck except of rare cases when it buffs the lightning storm. And you can achieve the same cost rejection by simply hero powering and saving a card.

Tuskar is like hero-powering + placing 1 mana 3\2 that can be evolved to level 4. He is decent but I am curious if there are better options like Argent Horserider for a bit of reach

I would imagine his usefulness depends on what you're playing against. Horserider can be fantastic against certain decks, but he won't do much vs. a full board of 3-4 HP minions.

Would Devolve have a place in this deck now that MSG is out?

 

Not really, this deck already runs 2 Lightning Storms to deal with opponent's board. You can include it as a fun card though.

      So the latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, has been out for more than a month now, and I was curious what everyone´s opinion on it was. Personally, I love the set. It adds more synergy with types of cards that weren´t as popular beforehand. For example, sets like secret mage, demon warlock, taunt warrior, and beast druid/hunter, have all gotten big buffs and can be viable in the meta. I got rank 13 with secret mage and taunt warrior alone, and hope to get to legend with them. What about you?

      The live Q&A with the two well-known Hearthstone devs took place yesterday and we've made a recap of the most interesting points.
      First of all, if you want to watch the whole thing, the VOD can be found here (it starts at 14:10). If you prefer a shorter version, Redditor EpicMelon has made a 10-min video of everything important said. Ultimately, if you don't feel like watching videos, we've made a summary of anything worth noting from yesterday's Q&A.
      Ben started talking about the new player experience, a topic he has discussed again this week. He repeated that most new players start off by playing versus A.I., some go to Casual and a minority goes to Ranked. The team has made it so that in Casual new players are exclusively matched against other new players and their MMR is kept to a 50% winrate.
      One of the currently most discussed hot topics in the Hearthstone community is the Ranked ladder. The team is satisfied with how clear the current system is in how it works. However, they do realise that its grindiness and the monthly reset can be a disadvantage and feel repetitive. To counter that, they are looking into short-term increasing the amount of bonus stars players can gain. This will hopefully increase the number of players in medium and higher ranks and move veterans away from Rank 20. However, they don't want everyone to be a Legend player either, since this would devalue the ranking. New breakpoints are also an idea the Hearthstone team is considering. As far as winstreaks stopping at Rank 5 are concerned, the idea behind this is that they wanted players to get to Legend "legit"; this could change as well, though.
      Moving to the topic of Arena, Dean announced that they are thinking of moving it to Standard format. Moreover, they want to try decreasing the amount of commons you get, as well as the amount of neutral Classic and Basic cards (especially minions). Some of these changes for Arena are already ready to be added to the game they are just waiting for the right time to patch them in. In early February, top 100 rankings for Arena will be published - just like the Ranked season ones. These rankings will be calculated based on highest average wins per run basis with a minimum requirement of 30 runs.
      The guys had a few things to say about the current meta, too. Pirate Warrior represented 30% of the meta game near the launch of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, while there were also a lot of Pirate Shamans and Rogues. Thankfully, these numbers have dropped as other decks (like Jade Druid and Reno decks) started surfacing. Pirate decks are slightly more popular than Team 5 would like and decks with the pirate package feel same-y. If this persists, they might take a look at Pirates. Hunters and Paladins are having a hard time at the moment because they can't keep up with the aggro pirate decks. Overall, the internal meta report shows a stability in the meta: there is only a 3% difference between the winrates of the top deck and the 11th best deck.
      Lastly, there was mention of the Wild format. Ben admitted that they could do some things better for Wild. For example, it's possible that Blizzard will encourage more Wild tournaments in the future. The upcoming rotation will be interesting since Wild will have more card sets than Standard. Wild is far from dead: it's just half as popular as Standard, although Ben hasn't looked in the numbers recently. Earlier in the stream, Ben also said that the team is considering two options to keep Standard fresh: either nerfing cards or just move them to Wild.
      Lastly, Ben and Dean talked about various other small topics like the possibility of reprinting cards (no actual answer given), more Hunter and Paladin talk, wording inconsistencies and rewriting old cards, how a healthy meta is defined and Team 5 itself.
