Feels like this deck could use a 1-drop, there's 2x backstab but an egg into a raptor leaves me at half HP against aggro decks before I have any board presence. Guess I could just try to mulligan harder for backstabs.

 

Does this deck really cost 6k dust? Dang, guess I got lucky with Sylvanas and Thalnos being two of the three legendaries I've got from arena packs. Normally anything above 1k would be an instant "lolno, can't afford that".

Seeing a deck like this makes me happy. Tempo Rogue was the first archetype I tried after finishing the tutorial, way back before Naxx when the game was new. If there's any kind of correlation between Rogue deck archetypes and the Rogue class from WoW, Tempo has always seemed to me like the Combat Rogue (my personal fav), whereas Miracle and Oil seem more like Subtlety and Assassination (not sure which would be which).

If you're worried about 1-drops, the deck notes mention possibly swapping Abusive Sargent in for Cold Blood; you can always drop a naked Abusive if you think it would help on turn 1. Beyond that you could fill the spot with Leper Gnome for another deathrattle effect, or even Undertaker.

The deck has potential but Priest and Warriors wreck havoc your tempo  with Aoe, and Fast aggro deck with lot of charge ally make you lose even with a good board presence for the lack of protector. Seems interesting the ally that double the death rattle effect (1/7 legendary) have you considered that?

Rivendare isn't good in this deck, this is a Tempo deck that wants to make the strongest board play each turn and Rivendare is the opposite of that.

I don't have Bloodmage either. I subbed him with an Abusive Sergeant. You could go with Leper Gnome, maybe a Huge Toad. While Bloodmage is nice to have, I feel it is not entirely needed. If you could copy his deathrattle then sweet, if not, it's not a lose.

Rivendare wouldn't work as a late game utility?

 Baron Riverdare doesn't fit into this deck due to the fact that you have to hold him until the time is right to make him useful, which in turn kills tempo. The goal of this deck is to make the best board plays and take the action to them. Each Deathrattle in the deck works both as a stand alone and a trigger for Unearthed Raptor. There will be times that the game will end were you A: Have to play Raptor without copying an effect, or B: Never drew him at all. Unearthed Raptor is good by himself but more powerful when coping an effect.

How would Eddy fit into a deck like this even though it doesn't play a lot of the usual combo cards?

Is it better to have sir finly and sea giant or better to have stallog and fuegon in place of thalnos and sylvannus?

I would say none of the above. Even though there are no weapon buffs in this deck, your hero power is still a viable asset. Feugen and Stalagg's deathrattle is very poor for Unearthed Raptor. My suggestion for Sylvanas would be to replace her with a second Belcher. As for Thalnos, like I had suggested in an earlier post, you can sub him for any early game proactive card. I personally went with Abusive Sargent. I hope this helped you in anyway.

Zero copies of Sap surprised me in a tempo deck. Why doesn't it makes the cut? I just got wrecked by a turn 2 Backstab/Backstab/Coin/Edwin-van-Cleef that I couldn't possibly answer. :-)

Because turn 2 BS/BS/Coin/Edwin is a common situation *sarcasm*. You have sticky minions and you buff them with coldblood to kill opponent's minions that would usually be sapped. Also, sap is near to useless when you face aggro decks.

This deck is interesting to play. I find that in the unlikely circumstance that you do not have a turn 2 play, equipping the dagger is still a great play against aggro decks, due to the weaker health on their cards. Personally, I prefer the abusive sergeant to the to the cold blood because of the 2/1 that is supplied, even at the cost of a smaller, temporary buff. Primarily this is due to the fact that abusive sergeant does not have combo, so it can be used alone with no downside.

@YourGod Combo doesn't have a downside, if you think not getting the benefit is a downside then that's pretty damn pessimistic

I agree with Anon that there is no real down side with Cold Blood. If you have to play it without the combo then you still get the same buff as Abusive Sergeant for the same cost only it's permanent. Another upside is for the same cost as Abusive Sergeant you can possibly get +4 added instead of the 2. The only upside for Abusive Sergeant over Cold Blood is that it gives a boost while also giving you a body on the board. For this deck I personally run 2 Cold Blood and 1 Sergeant.

I swapped out thanatos with finley murgleton, as the dagger isn't super useful on this deck. so far, results have been interesting although I'm not huge on finley's randomness.

I absolutely love this deck, it has enough cheap removal to have a chance against aggro and the flood of sticky minions it puts out is a complete nightmare to control/combo decks that rely on board clears. This deck has really taught me how important it is to avoid triggering your deathrattles until the last possible moment.

 

Swapping 1x cold blood for 1x abusive sergeant and mulliganing egg/cold blood with no activator/target has made my starts a lot more solid. I used to be way too greedy for raptor combos, now I understand it's perfectly fine to play the raptor on turn 3 even if you have no deathrattles on board, although the egg -> raptor combo can be utterly bonkers. What's that, you want to silence the raptor? Be my guest, it's still a 3-mana 3/4.

 

Naxx and GvG removal will probably kill this deck so I'll enjoy it while it lasts. And who knows, as LoE introduced the raptor the spring expansion might include a bunch of new combo pieces. Although with shredder, haunted creeper and sludge belcher gone it's possible Blizzard is just trying to cut the sticky spam core to a huge number of decks, it's certainly problematic.

 

Standard will kill secret paladin so I'm more than willing to pay the price in any case.

Rivendare isn't good in this deck, this is a Tempo deck that wants to make the strongest board play each turn and Rivendare is the opposite of that.

 

I may not see all aspects as I'm not that experienced, but I'm curious why this card kills tempo. The way I see it, Rivendare is situational in a sense that you should be able to trigger something immediately when you put him on the board.

 

If you get a Haunted Creeper pop, you add 3/9 stats on the board for 4 mana; 5/11 with Nerubian Egg (not to mention Sylvanas which can be insane). Add to that the potential to duplicate additional rattle effects.

 

He also combos decently with Argus Defender and protects a low heath cold blood minion which I frequently get. Granted the latter is not the deck's idea, Rivendare does not seem to be totally wrong...  but I may miss something?

Totally agree, it's great although I'm struggling against priest and I often end up with long games which I'm unable to close if Dr. Boom a BGH... which is like always biggrin.png

There's no tempo in this "tempo" deck. If ANYTHING goes wrong, if you don't draw perfectly, if you get boardcleared, if a priest mind controls your raptor. You lose the game, every time. Rogue worst class NA. At least they have arena.

      In episode number four of "What's the Move?" a fun OTK deck finds a creative way to handle a threat.
      I've been having way too much fun with a Stonetusk Boar OTK (One Turn Kill) deck on the ladder these past few days. It's been performing surprisingly well against both of the two most popular decks in the current metagame, Highlander Priest and Tempo Rogue, but the real reason to play it is because of how much variety it has to offer from game to game. It's incredibly difficult to pilot and never fails to create interesting situations - just like the one we'll be discussing today!
      Once again, I took some of the feedback from the previous episode to heart and did my best to incorporate it into this one. As this series is still young and in the process of honing on it's ideal set of parameters (such as the length of the video, the amount of depth it should go into, and the kinds of situations it analyzes), please feel free to let us know in the comment section how this episode compares its predecessors.

      The Ukrainian player is now part of G2.
      Lifecoach's spot had been empty for a while and someone had to fill in the gap, in order for the Fantastic Four of the Hearthstone division of G2 Esports to be remade. This person turned out to be Neirea, formerly of Team Liquid, who will join RDU, Thijs and Lothar. In fact, Neirea is already competing with his new team in the second week of the Trinity Series.
      Eugene "Neira" Shumilin has consistently ranked high in various major competitions since 2014. His breakout performance happened this year with team Ukraine placing 2nd in the Hearthstone Global Games and Neirea qualifying for the World Championship during the Spring Championship.
      We wish him the very best of luck!

      Shadowreaper Anduin can machinegun his enemies down at a proper speed.
      Patch 9.2, which went live yesterday, broke poor Shadowreaper Anduin, causing a huge delay when refreshing his Hero Power. This bug was quickly fixed today with a hotfix that can be donwloaded to your Hearthstone client:
      mdonais
      We are currently deploying a Hotfix to fix the speed of Shadowreaper Anduin's hero power.
      It slowed down in the patch yesterday. I don't know exactly why since I am not one of the engineers that fixed it but it sounds like it is a side effects of the unity upgrade we did. We have to rebuild a some things when we do a unity upgrade.
      Thanks!

      Which decks have emerged as the top dogs in the post-patch metagame?
      A lot has changed since patch 9.1 hit the ladder. In the latest meta report we cover the top new decks, the tech of the week, and some budget-friendly options you can use to dominate the ladder.
      It’s been a healthy amount of time since I wrote the first meta report for Icy Veins, and the current metagame could hardly be more different than the last I reported on. Patch 9.1 hit the ladder a few weeks ago to end the era of Druid dominance that plagued the early Knights of the Frozen Throne meta, and I believe that Blizzard deserves a good deal of credit for handling the Druid situation in a firm yet fair way. Druid was successfully knocked down a peg by the nerfs and the metagame is no longer plagued an overwhelming number of overpowered Jade Golems, yet the class itself was far from destroyed by the nerfs and remains a solid option for the competitive ladder.
      Now that the competitive ladder is once again a fun and safe environment to experiment in, it’s the perfect time to revisit the metagame to see how we can best attack it. In today’s article I’ll cover the top dogs of the format to take a look at why you should play them and how you can beat them, detail the tech card which are most likely to earn you some win percentage in the current metagame, and wrap things up by highlighting the top budget decks for the post-nerf ladder.
      The Top Decks
      Note: I will be using the vS Data Reaper Live Report for all of the statistics in this article.
      #1 - Tempo Rogue
      2x Backstab 2x Shadowstep 2x Cold Blood 2x Fire Fly 1x Hallucination 1x Patches the Pirate 2x Southsea Deckhand 2x Swashburglar 1x Prince Keleseth 1x Edwin VanCleef 2x SI:7 Agent 1x Shaku, the Collector 2x Southsea Captain 1x Tar Creeper 1x Spellbreaker 1x Xaril, Poisoned Mind 1x Leeroy Jenkins 1x Shadowcaster 2x Vilespine Slayer 2x Bonemare The new king of the meta is a deck which very few would have expected to become as dominant as it has. Tempo Rogue was just starting to gain momentum before the nerfs hit, yet it now boasts the top overall win percentage across all levels of play and has made Rogue the most played class at rank 5 and above.
      Most would have pegged Highlander Priest to wear the “best deck in standard” crown after the nerfs as it was the second best deck and was left untouched by Blizzard in Patch 9.1. Though it’s still a great deck (and we’ll be talking much more about a bit later), the metagame has shaped up to be a tad more aggressive than Highlander Priests would have hoped for. With aggro and aggressively-slanted midrange decks making up roughly half of the top 16 decks in the format, it stands to reason that the deck with the highest number of favorable matchups against these aggressive decks would be an in excellent position to take over the meta.
      Sure enough, Tempo Rogue boasts even or positive winrates against all but two of the decks on the Reaper report. All but two. Though that might seem like Jade Druid levels of domination, the key difference between Tempo Rogue and the previous king of the meta is that it is much easier to beat the deck if you’re planning for it. It’s vulnerable to wide boards that are backed up by effects such as Bloodlust and Savage Roar, plays seven or more Pirates which can be gobbled up by a Golakka Crawler, and its worst matchup is against Highlander Priest, the second most popular deck in the format.
      The power of the deck lies in the massive amount of two for ones, and is capable of generating massive amounts of value on a card per card basis. SI:7 Agent, Fire Plume Phoenix, Blazecaller, and Vilespine Slayer develop the board while going 187 on the opponent’s minions, and more aggressively-minded cards such as Cobalt Scalebane, Bittertide Hydra, and Bonemare are capable of generating a board out of nowhere. These highly efficient cards afford the deck the ability to play greedier cards like Cold Blood and Leeroy Jenkins to help them go underneath the bigger control decks. The final piece of the puzzle which puts it over the top is Prince Keleseth, a card which makes it’s already highly efficient creatures even more cost-effective and is particularly deadly in combination with Shadowstep.
      Tempo Rogue’s incredible flexibility and ability to pivot between roles are what make it such a dominant force in the current meta. It can comfortably play the role of the control deck against decks the likes of Zoo Warlock and Pirate Warrior, yet maintains a healthy number of tools which allow it to favorably play the role of Aggro against the likes of Jade Druid and Control Warlock. It seems that the way to take advantage of it is to capitalize on the fact that it doesn’t run several historically crucial Rogue cards. Without neither Vanish nor Bloodmage Thalnos + Fan of Knives at their disposal, the deck can struggle a bit to regain initiative against cards which create a wide board. Living Mana is a living nightmare for Tempo Rogue to deal with, and a big part of the reason that Aggro Druid is one of the two popular decks which has a favorable matchup against it (along with Highlander Priest). Though the Reaper report claims that Tempo Rogue is currently favored against Token Shaman, I’d imagine that some slight tuning could turn the tides towards Shaman’s favor.
      #2 - Highlander Priest
      1x Silence 1x Holy Smite 1x Northshire Cleric 1x Pint-Size Potion 1x Potion of Madness 1x Power Word: Shield 1x Bloodmage Thalnos 1x Dirty Rat 1x Golakka Crawler 1x Loot Hoarder 1x Mind Blast 1x Novice Engineer 1x Radiant Elemental 1x Shadow Visions 1x Shadow Word: Pain 1x Spirit Lash 1x Wild Pyromancer 1x Acolyte of Pain 1x Curious Glimmerroot 1x Kabal Talonpriest 1x Shadow Word: Death 1x Kazakus 1x Priest of the Feast 1x Shadow Word: Horror 1x Lyra the Sunshard 1x Raza the Chained 1x Dragonfire Potion 1x Holy Fire 1x Prophet Velen 1x Shadowreaper Anduin Fret not Priest fans, the age of Anduin is alive and well. Raza and Shadowreaper Anduin teamed up to make Highlander Priest the only deck played by 100% of the field at the HCT Summer Championships. It feels nearly impossible to beat a perfect draw from Highlander Priest, and the relatively high degree of skill which the deck requires to play affords more talented players the opportunity to outplay opponent’s in games which go long. It has a very tough time closing out games if it doesn’t draw Shadowreaper Anduin and Raza the Chained, but the huge amount of card draw the deck packs makes that a relatively rare occurrence.
      I don’t need to spend too much time discussing the strengths of the deck as it has been around for a while and it’s upsides are quite obvious. Early iterations of the deck had it masquerading as a control deck that just happened to play a game ending combo, but the Hearthstone community has since discovered that it’s much better to fully embrace the combo nature of the deck. Highlander Priest can now be best described as a pile of the top Priest spells, two extremely powerful Highlander cards (Raza and Kazakus), and a bunch of card draw spells. The downside of Highlander decks are that they can often feel inconsistent due to the one-of deckbuilding restriction, yet Highlander Priest is able to largely avoid this pitfall by reducing its effective deck size with all of its card draw.
      Highlander Priest is undeniably powerful and has certain draws that feel outright unbeatable, yet it still has several exploitable weaknesses. The most obvious of these weaknesses is the Highlander nature of the deck which prevents it from running more than one copy of Priest’s key defensive spells. It gets to run both Dragonfire Potion and Pint-Size Potion + Shadow Word: Horror to deal with boards that attempt to go wide, but it only gets to run one copy of Shadow Word: Death to kill larger minions and typically struggles against boards that can go big early. Shadowreaper Anduin gets to clear away multiple 5+ power minions with its battlecry effect, but efficient beaters like Bittertide Hydra and Cobalt Scalebane (which also dodges Dragonfire Potion) come down on Turn 5 and threaten to end the game before the powerful Death Knight has the opportunity to say anything about it. Barring a strong turn 5 play, not overcommitting your 5+ power minions into a Shadowreaper Anduin battlecry trigger can set up a game winning follow-up play before the upgraded Hero Power has time to burst your life down to 0. The lack of removal for large minions also means that the deck does miserably against both Jade Druid and Big Priest. At the end of the day Highlander Priest has just about as many negative matchups as positive ones, and it’s overall winrate on the Reaper report is a very modest 50%.
      #3 - Zoo Warlock
      A perfect example of addition by subtraction, the best aggro deck for the current standard meta is the one that didn’t get hit by the nerfs in patch 9.1. Pirate Warrior was dealt a massive blow with the nerf to Fiery War Axe and Aggro Druids are still adjusting to the loss of Innervate. These nerfs, along with the nerf to Spreading Plague, has opened up the door for a new aggro deck to emerge as a tool for punishing the slower and greedier decks of the format. Though the decklist for Zoo Warlock has remaind basically unchanged from the pre-nerf meta, the downgrade to normalcy for the top dogs of the previous format is what has allowed Zoo Warlock to become a highly competitive deck.
      The greatest strength of the deck is its remarkable consistency to curve out with 1 drops. It gets to run more 1 drops than any of the other top Aggro deck thanks Warlock’s two awesome Imps and Voidwalker, all of which are Demons for the extremely powerful one-card game-ender that is Bloodreaver Gul'dan. The deck's massive number of 1 drops allows it to squeeze minions onto the board at every spot in the curve while Life Tapping whenever possible to pressure the opponent with a stream of threats. Its also the aggro deck that has the lowest opportunity cost for running Prince Keleseth, as the deck would likely only consider Darkshire Librarian and Dire Wolf Alpha at the two drop slot and is perfectly content with Life Tap or two one drops on turn two. An early Keleseth makes Zoo’s already aggressively-statted minions a nightmare to deal with for control players and a huge problem for other aggro opponents as the game goes long. All of these factors add up to a deck which currently has only four negative matchups on the Reaper report and the second best overall win percentage in the meta.
      The weakness of Zoo Warlock is its relative inability to regain control over the board once it has been lost. The deck’s only ways to immediately deal with threats are Doomguard and Soulfire, both of which discard cards from hand and can potentially put the Warlock at a huge disadvantage. Getting a large Taunt minion to stick on board is likely too much for a Zoo Warlock to overcome, which is a big part of the reason that Big Priest is the deck’s worst matchup. Control decks can prey on Zoo Warlock by sticking a Doomsayer and following it up with heavy board presence. Other Aggro decks can can punish Zoo by getting on the board early and fighting tooth and nail to not surrender control of the board. As the Warlock is likely to pressure it’s own life total with Life Tap and Flame Imp, it shouldn’t be too difficult to turn the corner and quickly end the game once the opportunity presents itself.
      Tech of the Week - Golakka Crawler
      Despite a massive drop in the playrate of Pirate Warrior, Patches the Pirate and Southsea Captain are enjoying all-time highs in terms of deck representation. Half of the top ten decks on the Reaper report run Patches, while the top deck in the format (Tempo Rogue) is running up to nine Pirates! As much as I would love to suggest a sexier tech card, the prevalence of pirates in the present patch make Golakka Crawler the tech of the week. I’d currently recommend cramming two copies of the crab into control or midrange deck with the flex spots to support it.
      Budget Beater #1 - Midrange Hunter
      2x Alleycat 2x Tracking 2x Crackling Razormaw 2x Golakka Crawler 2x Scavenging Hyena 2x Animal Companion 1x Deadly Shot 2x Eaglehorn Bow 2x Kill Command 2x Stitched Tracker 2x Unleash the Hounds 2x Houndmaster 2x Infested Wolf 1x Tundra Rhino 2x Savannah Highmane 2x Bonemare The time of the Hunter is upon us! One of the weakest classes in Journey to Un’Goro, Hunter has emerged as an effective choice in the current meta for all the same reasons that Zoo Warlock has. Midrange Hunter has some terrible aggro matchups, but it’s sticky creatures are problematic for nearly all of the top control decks in the format. This extremely budget-friendly deck is currently capable of carrying skilled or experienced Hunter pilots all the way to Legend, just be wary of aggro-heavy local metagames during your climb.
      Budget Beater #2 - Secret Mage
      Note: Requires One Night in Karazhan and 4 Epics.
      2x Mana Wyrm 2x Arcanologist 2x Frostbolt 2x Medivh's Valet 2x Primordial Glyph 2x Sorcerer's Apprentice 2x Arcane Intellect 2x Counterspell 2x Kirin Tor Mage 2x Mirror Entity 2x Fireball 2x Bittertide Hydra 2x Kabal Crystal Runner 2x Bonemare 2x Firelands Portal I’m including a second budget beater this week because Midrange Hunter decks are so commonly recommended as budget options. Secret Mage is a very well positioned deck in the current meta and a deck I played heavily during my own climb to Legend last month. It quietly boasts a better overall winrate than Highlander Priest despite having some of the most polarizing matchups in the entire game. It performs horribly against most of the current aggro decks while completely running over all of the popular control decks. The thing I love most about Secret Mage is that it’s fairly skill intensive. It takes a ton of thought to pilot the deck to it’s maximum potential, which is a bag part of what makes the deck such a blast to play.
       
      Conclusion
      The Hearthstone metagame is as healthy as it's been since the last rotation, and it's a great time to jump back on the competitive ladder if you previously scared off by the brief age of DruidStone. Fans of every single class have at least one solid deck for climbing the ladder, and no individual deck feels as though it's power level is beyond reproach.
      Good luck out there, and I'll see you all next time!

      The big patch we were all expecting is finally live! It contains the removal of arena synergies, the new game mechanics update and the Hallow's End seasonal event.
      Firsly, the patch includes the changes to the sequence of triggers, which we have covered extensively in a separate article. A notable change is the removal of Arena synergy picks. That's not all, though: Vicious Fledgling will no longer appear in Arena, while appearance rate adjustments have been made to some cards.
      The patch also brings Nemsy Necrofizzle, the new Warlock hero, to the Hearthstone client. She is already available from October 17 and we will cover more about her in a next article!
      The October 2017 (Unholy Horror Knights) and November 2017 (Gone Fishing) Ranked Play Season card backs have been added to the client and you can view them below:

      The more exciting part of this patch is Hallow's End! This seasonal event will run for two weeks, from October 24 until November 6. According to Hearthpwn, during its first week we will get a free Whispers of the Old Gods pack and an Arena ticket. During its second week, we will get a free Knights of the Frozen Throne and an Arena ticket.
      The main hero portraits will have unique costumes (make sure to check them out on the Hearthpwn article linked above).  There will be a special Tavern Brawl with unique cards on the week of October 24. Moreover, during Hallow's End the Arena will have a dual class mode. You will choose a hero and then you will choose a hero power from a second hero. Then, you will be able to draft class cards from both heroes, as well as neutral cards. Bear in mind that any Arena run you have in progress will be automatically retired on October 24. You will receive rewards based on the number of your wins and a free Arena ticket.
      Lastly, Patch 9.2 contains various bug fixes. You can read the patch notes here.
