Although Tomb Pillager is a quite a good replacement in this patch for Burgle (A common one-off for many Oil Rogue decks before the release of League of Explorers), I still quite like the utility of Burgle especially against spell heavy classes like Paladins and Mages. Some cards which are stolen from other classes through Burgle can open up more opportunities to combo, control, and clear, specifically spells like Flamecannon, Hammer of Wrath, and Animal Companion.

 

I would certainly not argue the utlity of a free Coin after the expiration of Tomb Pillager nor its brawniness once it's out, but I will defend keeping Brugle since it too can open up good combo opportunities. (That, and I would still like to keep Burgle for now so that I can build up several thousand gold to go through League of Explorers anyways.)

Question: Why use violet teacher in this deck? The combo portion of the Oil dropping on a 1/1 is bad.

Because Oil is not your only spell. In fact, the deck runs a lot of spells and all of them, except for Oil, synergise well with Violet teacher.

So with the new nerf on blade furry, which in my opinion totally ended oil  rogue, since it was key for board clear and burst damage to the hero for the win. Is this deck any good still or is oil rogue temporally done?  I just don't see a way to replace such a vital card in this deck.  Any opinions?

Pretty much, yeah. It's all about the miracle again now!

I've spent a ridiculous amount of time learning these decks, posted on here. None of them have given me a viable route into any ranks past 10. With the recent game changes and an abundance of different cards available to players, its impossible to create an uber deck that will reach legendary at Sottle states. Use these decks at your own risk, don't expect to get to legendary, wins nowadays rely totally on luck and situational play. These cards are useless.

That's not true. Sottle plays these decks on stream and reaches Legend without any issue. Even an average player such as myself managed to reach Rank 5 within 5 days of the season's start using the Zoo deck that Sottle posted here on Icy Veins. You need to persevere and not hesitate to ask for help. If you can provide a video of one of your games, we'd be happy to help :)

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!
      If you're looking for the guide I referenced in this video, please follow this link to "Legend in the Making: Part 2".

      Choose your champion for the upcoming Hearthstone World Championships to win free K&C packs!
      The biggest Hearthstone tournament of the year, the Hearthstone World Championship, is just around the corner! To help build up excitement for the tournament, players may now select a champion from among the 16 world championship competitors. Each round your champion advances in the tournament will reward you with more Kobolds & Catacombs packs. You can win up to 6 packs of K&C for selecting the winner of the tournament, so choose wisely! Once you've locked in your choice it can not be changed.
      Anyone with a Battle.net account can select a champion for free until midnight on January 17th (Pacific Standard Time), and there's no downside to selecting the wrong champion. All you need to do is follow this link and select one of the 16 competitors. Personally, I'm sticking with Purple because he won me 3 packs at the Summer Championship and appears to be the favorite to win his group. Kolento and Surrender are two of the favorites to win the tournament, which would make them safe bets to win you some packs as well.

      After a couple of repeats, this is 2018's first new Tavern Brawl.
      This is a constructed Brawl, with the novelty that you can build a deck of any size. The rest of the cards will be Shadow Reflections, which is normally generated by the passive Hero Power of the Rogue Death Knight Valeera the Hollow. It should be noted that when you play second, you don't get the coin; you draw an extra card instead.
      Obviously, you don't want to make a deck of 30 cards, since you will have no Shadow Reflections (although people have had success even like this). However, you also don't want to make a deck of only 1-3 cards, given that the Reflections take actual spots in the deck and it will be hard drawing the cards you picked.
      By doing a quick research, it seems that Aggro Paladin and Aggro Druid are good picks. As is usually the case when some good decks surface, their counters are also created: in this case, it's Mage with Ice Lance and Combo Priest. Moreover, Quest Rogue has managed to make a surprise re-appearance from the dead in this Brawl. Lastly, a hilarious deck is the Hunter one with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper.
      Good luck!
