No Trogg Midrange Shaman Standard

So I doubt this will get approved but that's ok, I just want you moderators and who created this deck to see this.

I just tried this deck for the very first time, against a golden rogue that had an 8/8 edwin on the board by turn 2.  The attached images are the result after the match.

 

....needless to say I'm liking this deck.

Edit: Images removed by moderator, will allow the comment the stay. People were pretty salty, to say the least.

Had to remove the images unfortunately, but I'll keep the comment. It's nice to see you're doing well with it! :D

Hi! I have a question: why do you play two rockbiterweapons and one lightning bolt instead of the other way around? After the nerf I do not see the advantage of rockbiterweapon over lightning bolt in a deck without doomhammer/Al’Akir.

Not sure, to be honest. @positiv2, ideas?

I have not played the deck yet after the nerf and I could not come up with a satisfying answer, which is why I decided not to answer. My guess is that since the deck does not run any cards that synergize with overload, you are paying two mana anyway for Lightning Bolt without advantage, and it can screw up your next turn. It's also possible that it was overlooked.

I think there is no justification in leaving the Rockbiter Weapons. The key strength in playing Argent Squire was that you could dispatch opposing Totem Golems with ease. Mirror is on the decline, and Feral Spirit found its way back in, so I believe it is not reasonable not to play Tunnel Trogg. Killing X/2s with back up for free is cool, for sure, but it's nothing that Trogg can't handle himself.

Lightning Bolt, in its turn, is simply awesome. In its best shape since 1994.

Here, 1+1 mana does not equal 2 mana. Shocking, I know. But it matters a lot.

Also Bolt benefits from Spell Damage and 4 is the magic number of Standard. There is a real advantage over Rockbiter.

Actually, if you get a bad hand, and you don't get any 2-drop, while your opponent drops one, it is better to play Rockbiter Weapon than Lightning Bolt, as it doesn't prevent a 3-drop from being played next turn. This is a scenario where 1+1 is more expensive than 2.

You can still advance your gameplan with Hero Power, pass.

What you use as an example is a valid, but rather corner case, which does not come up that often from my experience. I say it again - I still believe that even though it's not 100% always that, but Bolt is worth the trouble, while Rockbiter isn't.

      The new meta is still forming, but even at this early stage it seems that Kazakus will be a large part of it. This article shows all of the available potions, and explains how the ordering of the spells when cast is likely to change.
      The first trick to remembering all of the options is to realise that  in the potion creation stage, nearly all of the choices are fundamentally the same no matter whether the spell costs 1, 5, or 10 mana. The cost of the spell simply powers up the effect. There are ten different effects to choose from, which are outlined below. The spells are remembered more easily when you group the effects by numbers.
      1, 2, 3 effects:
      Icecap: Freezes 1, 2, or 3 enemy minions.
      Ichor of Undeath: Summons 1, 2, or 3 friendly minions that died this game.
      Kingsblood: Draws 1, 2, or 3 cards.
      Shadow Oil: Adds 1, 2, or 3 random Demons to your hand.

      Other effects in number order:
      Felbloom: Deals 2, 4, or 6 damage to all minions. 
      Goldthorn: Gives your minions 2, 4, or 6 extra health. 
      Netherbloom: Summons a 2/2, 5/5, or 8/8 demon.
      Heart of Fire: Deals 3, 5, or 8 damage.
      Stonescale Oil: Gives 4, 7, or 10 Armor.
      Mystic Wool: This card is unique in that it has no effect for 1 mana. It either turns a random enemy minion into a 1/1 Sheep, or all enemy minions into 1/1 Sheep.

      At the moment, many of the pairings work according to the game engine, rather than in the best order, which means that Kazakus is not working as intended. An example of this would be minions that are getting killed by damage are then getting frozen before leaving play. This is correct in terms of how the game works, as deaths are always processed last, but the spells are going to be made to work outside of the regular game engine. This will make them more powerful and intuitive.

      We are already working on this. Feel free to post stuff like this on our bug forums. (source) This reply on Reddit confirms that the idea of the custom Spell is that it will resolve in an order beneficial to the caster, and that it will likely be changed very soon.
