Hearthstone Cheap Rogue GvG

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 :)

Hi there. A question i have is.. why is there no assasinate in here? To me its one of the best cards in rogue decks..

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...).

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.

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

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.

      Mike Donais appeared yesterday on his daughter's stream, where he played some games and talked about various topics. He may also have inadvertently made a major reveal about two upcoming nerfs.
      A private message from Jared Noel, a former member of Hearthstone Analytics at Blizzard, appeared on stream. It was mentioned in it that changes would be made Conjurer's Calling and Extra Arms. The former will be increased to 4 mana, while the latter - even though it was one of buffed cards from The Boomsday Project - will be reverted to 3 mana.

      Now, Mike may have been replying "yes" to anything said above, but judging from his reaction this chat log wasn't meant to be shown on stream.
       
      The previous day from the stream, the Hearthstone developer had revealed that there will be an announcement on balance changes this week.
      mdonais
      Hopefully they are prioritizing a nerf patch before the Single Player Content patch
      Yep, we will give more info on balance changes this week hopefully. (source)
      During the stream, Donais also talked about a lot of other issues like card balance and Wild balance in particular, Arena changes, card design and more. Some interesting tidbits are that for Arena, they will revisit the old system, where you could see powerful cards and weak cards in the same pick - without this necessarily being a permanent change. There's also talk about upgrading Priest's board clears - one of the class's main weaknesses - since the team doesn't want to reprint the same cards.
