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.

      Card reveal for Knights of the Frozen Throne continues with Blood Razor, a neutral Legendary and Prince Taldaram.
      If you missed previous reveals or need information about the latest Hearthstone expansion, you can find them in our Knights of the Frozen Throne hub page.
      Warrior's Blood Razor
      The new Warrior card has been revealed via The Legend of Slag. The card makes King Mosh good and battlecry & deathrattle effects make it a flexible choice for many Warrior cards.

      Prince Taldaram
      This is a new neutral Legendary card, revealed exclusively on Hearthpwn. Possible synergies are Malygos, Leeroy Jenkins or Prophet Velen.

      Blood-Queen Lanathel is a new legendary Warlock card that was just revealed via PCGamesN.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out here.
      Warlock's Blood-Queen Lana'thel
      The new Legendary Warlock card synergizes with Cruel Dinomancer and cards like Doomguard, Soulfire up to Malchezaar's Imp & Silverware Golem. It doesn't even have Charge and due to ist high mana cost it cannot be deployed early.

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.

      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.
