would king mukla or beneath the grounds be viable for this deck?

Definitely not beneath the grounds, in most case you'll end up mill the cards you shuffled into their deck, wasting your card and setting you back for fatigue damage, and even disregarding that it doesnt fit the decks theme, which is rather reactive.

King Mukla is better, and could be worth experimenting with, but it's not a powerful combo, being situational and not contributing to the card draw.

Hello!

 

Is this deck viable with none or just one copy or Preparation? How can replace this card?

 

Thanks!

 

Preparation is key to most/all Rogue decks, and is basically impossible to replace. It allows critical combos that are just not possible otherwise. It is worth saving dust and crafting a set if you want to play Rogue decks.

I play currently 1 beneath the grounds, and instead of si agent, i run dark iron skulker, i have yet to put bran in. What would give all undamaged enemy minions 4 damage.

The reason i run 1 beneath the grounds, to keep until he is fatigue giving u 3 4/4 the next time he draws a card. And it blocks highlander decks by putting 3 copys of the same card in his deck. Futher more alexstrasa is Nice to have but giving up one turn to survive means u allready lost. And hiding a lorewalker cho behind a deathlord, giving u the abillity to give mage, priest, warlock spells they cant use or they giving u more removal options. I swapped thalnos for lorewalker cho, backstab for seconden bladed flurry. Azure Drake for poisened blade, but when i dont draw coldlight in pretty screwed...

Dark iron skulker doesnt synergize with brann, because of the undamaged minions needed to trigger his battlecry, and he sounds them al the first time. Stills its vaible for turn 5 play versus agro clearing the board. Doubting to put a molten Giant in as extra target for gang up. Maybe soms 1 allready Trier to do so...

Beneath the Grounds is pretty risky. If you burn cards, beneath the grounds don't activate and you actually helped your opponent this way. However, countering Reno can be worth it, definitely an interesting swap.

So, i've been playing a rogue mill for a couple days, but a different, "homemade" version of this.

 

Instead of: 2xPreparation, 2xFan of Knives, Bloodmage Thalnos, Brann Bronzebeard and Azure Drake

 

I use: 2 copies of blade flurry instead of one, 2xDancing Swords, 2xSludge Belcher and 2xAnub'ar Ambusher.

 

Even if sometimes i feel like i need to have more draw, why wouldn't you use Dancing Swords/Anub'ar? I feel like they're strong minions that can really help you getting some board control, and i've been able to use Anub'ar's deathrattle multiple times on Coldlights, which garanteed me more mill power if i didn't have shadowstep in hand.

Basically, you don't use them because the deck doesn't need, or want board presence, and as you say, having those cards in your deck cuts down your defensive and cycle options, which are much more important.

Is there a way to make this deck a little more consistent.  I have abysmal luck with it.  Last game I played, both deathlords and both oracles were in the last 8 cards of the deck, and this really hasn't been an uncommon occurrence.  I have played the deck a few times, around 15, and in all but 3 of the matches, I haven't pulled an oracle before turn 8, and I pretty aggressively mulligan for oracles in every match up but the two games against hunters.  I really like the deck, it is fun, but I really feel their needs to be a little more cycle in it, maybe a shiv, but I am not sure what to remove for it, everything in the deck feels pretty necessary except the drake, but again, need the cycle so.

Yes, there isn't much you can do about it. You can try to win by using the other cards, such as Vanish and just stall with Healbots.

Any thoughts on changing azure drake and one Eviscerate to Loatheb and Assassinate?

 

My main thought is changing Azure to Loatheb tho.

You don't have a board hat needs protecting and therefore you don't need Loatheb.

Eviscerate has too high value to be dropped. Assassinate is too slow and bring you almost no tempo and even gives you tempo loss against aggro decks.

The deck doesn't work. Brann is a dead draw 90% of the time.

The deck would probably be better without him and maybe should include Sir Finley.

Your hero power is actually quite strong. The only board clears you have are FoK and Flurry and Flurry wouldn't be possible without your hero power. 

This is a combo deck, so you will usually wait for a chance to drop it together with healbot or Coldlight. If you have neither in hand, it is okay because this is a combo deck and getting combo pieces one by one is just how they work. The same (dead draw) can be said about Whirlwind or Inner rage in the patron deck (pre-nerf) and it was used anyway.

Greetings, thinking about enhancing this deck with what i have without crafting aditional cards would adding a Headcrack or a Kidnapper benefit to the deck and if so what would you replace with them. 

Or what other non Legendary cards can be added to add to this deck more power or even fun smile.png ?

Headcrack doesn't fit the deck at all and is a bad card itself. Kidnapper costs way too much and the combo will be sometimes hard to trigger.

The only card I remember that could fit the deck would be Mechanical Yeti. But it doesn't really make the deck more fun, does it?

youthfull brewmaster, is a pretty decent swap, so is shiv. And cutting out an azure drake means you'll loose 2 chances to draw oracle. futher more yes this is one deck you just need that one card. but versus other control match ups be it freeze, handlock, warrior there is a proper advantage

n(n+1)/2 = fatigue damage

 

where n = number of fatigue draws

 

remember this formula so that you don't need to count each time.

      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!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.

In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.
