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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
