Hey!

So, previously i asked for help on a paladin deck.

And now i've made a rogue deck with the left over dust that i had.

Here it is:

Firstly i've noticed, that even with a lot of low-cost cards i still have a pretty weak early game. Any tips on making this better, i have all the adventure cards and a few other ones. Ask me if you want me to put out all the other cards that i own.

In terms of induividual cards, the only one I would definitely exchange is Gang Up (there is no specific synergy with the rest of your deck that I can see, and you are not planning to go very late game that you can outdraw your opponent with).

 

I would consider removing your (at least two of your) big taunts (Belcher and Sunwalker) and go for something more aggressive. Maybe Azure Drakes, if you have that cards. Loatheb should also fit well.

 

Regarding your early game, maybe an Goblin Auto Barber could help. Also, Bllade Flurry, and Sharpsword Oil seem worth considering if you have any of those cards.

You might have more success if you turn this into a more aggressive deck. I agree with Horn that Gang Up doesn't seem to fit with the rest of your cards.

 

Tinker's Sharpsword Oil is a great Rogue card after which the Oil Rogue archetype is named. Southsea Deckhand is a good card to set off Tinker's combo effect. You could also add Shade of Naxxramas since it has stealth and is hard to get rid of, then use another card such as your Deadly Poison to set off the Tinker combo, thus buffing the Shade and allowing you to attack with both him and your hero for a lot of burst damage. As Horn mentions above, Goblin Auto Barber, Blade Flurry, and Loatheb are all good cards for an aggressive Rogue deck.

 

Cards such as Sprint, Azure Drake, Gnomish Inventor, and Novice Engineer can help you draw the cards you need for the combos. Novice Engineer is obviously weak with only 1 health and I wouldn't normally recommend it, but it's useful in combo-heavy decks as it allows you to quickly go through your deck until you find the cards you need.

      Blizzard is giving away one free Hearthstone: Classic pack as a way to show off the "Gift" tab, a brand new feature in the Battle.net client. To claim your pack, simply click on the gift notification in the upper-right corner of the client then click on the big blue "Claim" button which pops up.

      Hearthstone fans from outside of North America may need to update to the beta version of the Battle.net client before being able to view the gift notification. To do this, click on the Blizzard logo in the upper-left corner of the Battle.net client to bring up the main menu, then click on Settings. Here you should see a "Beta" tab at the very bottom of the Settings list where you should be able to switch to the Beta version of the client.

      Ike's surprising Freeze Mage deck played a huge role in his perfect tournament run.
      Hot off of a top 8 finish at the HCT Americas Summer Championships, Mark "Ike" Eichner blew through the competition at DreamHack Denver to finish the tournament with a perfect 13-0 record. He capped off the tournament by defeating DrJikininki, the DreamHack Atlanta 2017 champion, 3-2 in the finals. An incredibly impressive accomplishment for his first ever DreamHack, Ike will be taking home $7500 and 15 HCT points for his victory.
      Ike's powerful tournament lineup featured the three unquestioned kings of the current tournament meta, Highlander Priest, Jade Druid, and Tempo Rogue. However, his unique Freeze Mage deck was the all-star of the tournament. Ike called the deck his top performer on Twitter and noted that it received the most bans in the top 16.
      You can check out his deck lists for the tournament (including his Freeze Mage list) here on Twitter.

      In episode number four of "What's the Move?" a fun OTK deck finds a creative way to handle a threat.
      I've been having way too much fun with a Stonetusk Boar OTK (One Turn Kill) deck on the ladder these past few days. It's been performing surprisingly well against both of the two most popular decks in the current metagame, Highlander Priest and Tempo Rogue, but the real reason to play it is because of how much variety it has to offer from game to game. It's incredibly difficult to pilot and never fails to create interesting situations - just like the one we'll be discussing today!
      Once again, I took some of the feedback from the previous episode to heart and did my best to incorporate it into this one. As this series is still young and in the process of honing on it's ideal set of parameters (such as the length of the video, the amount of depth it should go into, and the kinds of situations it analyzes), please feel free to let us know in the comment section how this episode compares its predecessors.

      The Ukrainian player is now part of G2.
      Lifecoach's spot had been empty for a while and someone had to fill in the gap, in order for the Fantastic Four of the Hearthstone division of G2 Esports to be remade. This person turned out to be Neirea, formerly of Team Liquid, who will join RDU, Thijs and Lothar. In fact, Neirea is already competing with his new team in the second week of the Trinity Series.
      Eugene "Neira" Shumilin has consistently ranked high in various major competitions since 2014. His breakout performance happened this year with team Ukraine placing 2nd in the Hearthstone Global Games and Neirea qualifying for the World Championship during the Spring Championship.
      We wish him the very best of luck!

      Shadowreaper Anduin can machinegun his enemies down at a proper speed.
      Patch 9.2, which went live yesterday, broke poor Shadowreaper Anduin, causing a huge delay when refreshing his Hero Power. This bug was quickly fixed today with a hotfix that can be donwloaded to your Hearthstone client:
      mdonais
      We are currently deploying a Hotfix to fix the speed of Shadowreaper Anduin's hero power.
      It slowed down in the patch yesterday. I don't know exactly why since I am not one of the engineers that fixed it but it sounds like it is a side effects of the unity upgrade we did. We have to rebuild a some things when we do a unity upgrade.
      Thanks!
      Mike. (source)
