I'm guessing dreadscale is essential

Only depending on your meta. In the meta you described actually makes Dreadscale worse. Argent Horserider, King's Elekk, Snake/Bear Trap or a Stranglethorn Tiger can go in its place (although Tiger messes up the curve, so only if you don't have any of the others).

So I was wondering why no exploding traps? say that the mad scientist dies turn two after you summoned him turn 1 now your freeze trap is going to be used on some piece of crap 2/1 leper gnome or something to that effect instead of the tank clearer that you need it to be. i find that exploding traps are better because at least they hit all enemies instead of 1. Another example you have freeze trap out the opponent has 5 monsters out all with 2 health. you send one back and he hits you with 4 of them and wins the game. but with exploding trap not a single one touches you and all of a sudden you have field control. but maybe i am missing something. its possible.

You have given us a scenario that never happens. Better players play around Explosive trap and Unleash the Hounds by not overextending. It is more possible that opponent will have, let's say, 2 big minions on the board, and attacking with any of them will cause him a great tempo loss.

Explosive Trap has no effect on a fight for board control which is what this deck is about, Explosive Trap is better for setting up race scenarios where you buy yourself extra turns to deal damage, which is what the more aggressive Hunters are about.

 

You shouldn't underestimate the power of even Freezing a 2 or 3 drop from an early Mad Scientist, it's still a huge tempo advantage that you then build on with your Midrange pressure, it's really important to the deck.

      Two new cards were revealed by Asian streamers: an Epic neutral minion and the Paladin Spirit.
      The first card was unveiled by Chinese streamer LaLaLa on Douyu.

      The first thought that comes when looking at this card is that it's great support for Quest Hunter. The problem is support cards for this archetype were printed in previous expansions and the result was always the same. Untamed Beastmaster could definitely fit into a Beast deck along with Oondasta - and since they are both Neutral cards, this doesn't necessarily have to be Hunter. Hi'reek, the Warlock Loa, and his copies could benefit from the +2/+2 buff. Untamed Beastmaster could also find its place in a Beast Druid deck with minions like Charged Devilsaur and Tyrantus. These Warlock and Druid combos, though, sound a bit like win-more situations.
      The Paladin Spirit was revealed by Korean streamer (and dancer) Rhdgurwn.

      The text box may not be the final version as "stats equal to its Cost" is a bit vague, since it could mean a 4/4 or a 3/1 or a 1/3 or a 2/2. However, it would make sense that if you cast a 4-mana spell, the Spirit would summon a 4/4 Tiger and that's how we are going to treat it. At 4 mana, this different version of Summoning Stone seems a bit slow and definitely promotes a more Spell Control-oriented playstyle, which is what Paladin seems to be heading to in Rastakhan's Rumble. It definitely makes for a strong combo with Spikeridged Steed.

      It turns out that Dragon Warrior is definitely going to return in Rastakhan's Rumble and the Warrior Legendary Champion is proof of that!
      The card was revealed in the third episode of the Wronchi Animations series of videos for Rastakhan's Rumble (here is Part 1 and Part 2). Krag'wa the Frog is literally swallowing the opponent Annoy-o-trons, when War Master Voone shows up, astounding Garrosh in the audience.
      The video has an older version of the card, since it looks like the team decided that the final version of Voone is actually a 4-mana 4/3:

      The wording is slightly vague, but the copies are added to your hand. As shown in the video, this could work great with The Boomship. However, if you are playing expensive Dragons, I don't see how useful it would be to have more copies of them unless you are absolutely sure that the game is going to last long enough so you can play them all. There's also the problem that currently in Standard there aren't that many powerful Dragons and we've yet to see any new ones in Rastakhan's Rumble. Other than that, War Master Voone and the newly revealed Firetree Witchdoctor can work great in a Dragon Warrior deck and let it be noted that they are both Even cards.

      The Rogue Legendary Loa has just been unveiled!
      The reveal was made by MKRR3 on YouTube. The video is in Polish.

      Gral, the Shark can potentially draw you a minion but it is quite weak to Silence. Still, Rogue has quite a few ways to trigger the Deathrattle and now with Spirit of the Shark, it can trigger the Battlecry twice as well. At first sight, though, it feels like a weak card: Silence destroys it, high mana cost and Rogue traditionally runs quite a few small minions as well. It also doesn't seem to fit with the Pirate theme Rogue will have in Rastakhan's Rumble, altough perhaps we can see Beast Rogue with Oondasta and the recently revealed Untamed Beastmaster.
      What do you people think about this card?

      It seems that Dragons will have a big part in Rastakhan's Rumble as this versatile and cheap Neutral minion can Discover a spell if you are holding a Dragon!
      Hafu revealed this card on YouTube:

      We haven't seen any Dragons revealed so far, but it's safe to assume that they will have some kind of presence in Rastakhan's Rumble. People are already thinking that Dragon Warrior might be a thing, due to the reveal of Smolderthorn Lancer. The Discover component of this card makes it very versatile and probably a staple in Dragon decks to come, since it's undeniable that Dragons will keep being printed in future expansions. The potential is definitely there, but without having seen any other Dragons from the upcoming expansion it's difficult to talk about which classes Firetree Witchdoctor can find a home in.

      As the trend is in latest expansions, we have yet another minion that supports the Healing/Control Paladin archetype.
      The card was revealed by PhenomenGames on YouTube. The video is in Russian.

      Paladin gets its own version of Hooked Reaver. It's not clear whether you need to restore Health on your hero or you can just heal any minion for this to work. A lot of cards have been printed in the latest expansions that promote this archetype of Paladin deck (even though Aggro Paladin always ends up winning) and maybe it is its time to shine. Other than that, Zandalari Troll Paladins are soon coming to World of Warcraft and it's good to see them in Hearthstone as well!
