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.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
