Is it me or it is missing some cards?

I count 30.

What are you referring to exactly?

is the bloodmage thalnos essential because he is not very game changing but is a legendary and costs a lot and also could loatheb be replaced by facelkess manipulator

He can be dropped only for 2 mana when you really need the +1 damage for spells and also the card-draw is a game changer sometimes. Best replacement is kobold geomancer but you lose some winrate with it for sure.

I ended on rank 7 before.
I can't seem to even get past rank 20 with this deck right now. I just don't seem to have enough answers for things before I've taken too much damage...

It seems the meta is kind of unfriendly for Oil Rogue right now; mainly because the deck it is supposed to counter - Midrange Paladin- sees a lot less play and Demonzoo is not as good of a matchup. I've gotten to rank 10, but could not climb any further (that was without Thaurissan though)

Yeah, Rogue has really fallen out of popularity recently, but there are still dedicated Rogue specialists playing variations of this deck and doing well with it.

I loved this kind of deck since I saw it but I was out of the game. I decied to join back recently and made this variation but , even if having tons of fun , I have been steamrolled by many aggro decks. I have cut the   healbot and loatheb for 2 belchers and im winning quite a bit more now.

 

Not only the belcher is a beast vs aggro , but it's also "sticky" ( as pros love to say) , giving another possible target to remain on the field for  oil burst

My current thought on Assassin's Blade is that it is not very good in this deck.

 

Generally, you will buff the attack of your weapon, hit once and Blade Flurry afterwards, so the extra 2 uses of Assassin's Blade are generally wasted. The extra 2 Attack could matter, but it is generally not worth it spending 3 mana extra to do so since you have the Deadly Poison which generates the same effect.

 

I have run it in an early version of Oil Rogue and was generally unimpressed by it. 

If you had good experiences with it, let me know though; I am definitely open to new ideas with this deck.

On the Assassin's Blade again:

 

It has come to my attention that some decks actually decided to cut one Oil for an Assassin's Blade. I don't know whether this is generally an upside or downside, but it is definitely an idea I'll try.

 

For reference, the list I saw made the following changes to the list used here:

 

-1 Southsea Deckhand

-1 Tinker's Sharpsword Oil

-1 Antique Healbot

 

+1 Shiv

+1 Piloted Shredder

+1 Assassin's Blade

I like the deck very much for ladder runs, versatile enough against most deck archetypes.

 

Cutting oil is almost suicidal....

Short of one will make it just about next to impossible to break handlock's walls of giants.

 

I however ended up with these minions instead, making it almost a "face" approach:

 

2antique healbot

2annoy-o tron

1azure drake

1loot hoarder

1southsea deckhand

1arcane golem

1emperor thaurissan

1loatheb

I've been trying Greenskin in place of Loatheb, it's pretty handy if you can curve into it but you don't want to be using charges of your power weapon too often, and it doesn't protect your board in the same way. Probably a better replacement would be Belcher.

Alot of people asking for replacements for the epics. Personally, until i get those three epics im going with:

 Loot hoarder in place of Thalos

And Arcan Nullifiier X-21 just there to be annoying

And a Cold Blooded for more burst for deckhand.

 

Thoughts?

I would play Kobold over Loot Hoarder in place of the Thalnos, and cutting Prep just weakens the deck too much for me to even consider it. Honestly, if you don't have Preps, I would just play something else.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
