Novice Engineer seems to me like the weakest card in this deck... am I wrong ?

There's always going to be some less than perfect cards in a deck that is built to a budget, but Novice Engineer is really not that far off being good enough to play in full budget Rogue decks, Rogue is all about card efficiency, Combo mechanics, and Tempo. Novice helps with all three of those, since it replaces itself as a card, is a cheap card that can activate combo (an can immediately combo with the card you draw), and provides you with more options to maintain pressure.

This deck is working really well for me right now.  I don't track decks as well as I should but I'm pretty sure its a 70-80% winrate across both game modes.  

 

So yeah, thanks for all the work on cheap decks.  I had been a bit stuck on my usual druid, but this is flying :)

Yep, basically the idea of this deck is to keep on top of the opponent, you don't want to spend 5 Mana dealing with their creature, you'd rather spend 2 to Sap it, and then use the rest of the Mana to create more pressure. Rogue is all about Mana efficiency.

I really like this deck i only subbed the engineers with loot hoarders and the wolfrider with an arcane golem and i was able to take it all the way up to rank 5 if played correctly this can be a very scary deck to go up against despite how cheap it is

I enjoy this deck a lot, thank you Sottle ! I'm still a beginner and even with only 1 SI:7 Agent and 1 Blade Furry it's really effective. For the moment i'm playing with 1 Perdition's Blade until I have another Agent and it's not bad. I also use 1 Violet Teacher instead of Pilote Shredder and 2 Acid Swamp Ooze (really usefull againt face hunter) for saving some dust for a more advanced Oil Rogue.

What I miss the most is probably the second Blade Furry (replaced by a second Fan of Knives but well...).

Yeah, Perditions for an SI is a really smart swap.

Glad it's working for you.

This deck is my first stab at a crafted set and I want to say THANKS!  Up to now, I've been playing with basic cards and whatever I land from decks earned by completing quests.  

 

What I really enjoy about the build is I feel that I have a fighting chance against decks containing Epics and Legendaries.  A good deal of my losses have been due to my mistakes and not the opponents deck power. So, its a joy knowing that I can be a contender against powerful decks if I play my cards right.  Now, if only I can figure out how to survive a hunter rush deck...those are a killer for me at the moment.

 

Keep up the great work!

And what cards are best kept in hand at the start?

Backstab, Deadly Poison and Auto-Barber are all good. SI is good if you have The Coin, or Backstab already, Evis can be ok if you don't have a Backstab.

As for which cards to replace, take a look at some of our more full budget guides, and see which cards have changed in between them.

exactly why no healbots? Against rush it almost seems mandatory plus by the fact half the time you're forced to use face to clear.

Healbot is too slow, this deck is an aggressive Tempo deck that aims to have the initiative at all times, if you slow down to play a 5 mana 3/3, you're going to lose that initiative and ending up taking more than the 8 life you gained over the course of the game because of it.

Yeah, Bloodmage would be a great card in this deck, you can cut one Novice for it.

Hi, you say the cost is 1000 but even one Blade Flurry is 800. Am I missing something?

Try not crafting golden cards, and Blade Flurry suddenly becomes a 100 dust card :D

I wouldn't. Emperor is generally a card that's good for 1 of 2 purposes. Either for discounting a huge hand in Control decks, or for discounting specific combo pieces in a deck that is reliant on combos. This deck is neither of those things.

I have Arcane Golem is it stronger if I replace it with Wolf Rider? It gives mana crystal..Edit I played the deck and got rank 14 for the first time :) I like the weopon use and I have few questions. Why not second Shiv instead of Novice Engeneer it seems better to me and how can I include sinister strike I really like it and its great for combo? ty ;p

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      A new mini-series of funny shorts has started, and we already have 2 episodes out! Mulligans sees an ordinary guy complete the quests that everyday life throws his way with the help of some unusual friends: Uther, Jaina, and Gul’dan. See them battle printer problems and who gets to ride shotgun in the first two episodes:

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
