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.

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 :)

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.

      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
