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.)

I replaced that niche burgle/pillager with deckhand, it has given me exact lethal far too many times for me to ever count it out.

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.

Is there anything I can use to sub for tomb pillager? Cutpurse, or a healbot? I just dont feel like spending $20 to get one card right now

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 :)

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
