Under "3.3. Card Swaps":

If you are not encountering a lot of decks where Fan of Knives 
is useful, try exchanging one for more solid curve cards 
like a second Sludge Belcher.

There are already two Sludge Belchers in the deck list and there is no talk about them in any other part of the guide.

 

Did you mean to say something else?

Maybe another card in exchange for one Fan of Knives?

I'd appreciate other swap suggestions!

I did not have the Piloted Sky Golem so I replaced it with Wobbling Runts and because I didn't have a second Defender of Argus I added Baron Rivendare. I feel Rivendare makes the deck shine even more.

I don't have dr.boom who or what can I replace him with

 

Arch-Thief Rafaam.  It is a 9-mana card instead of 7, but gives you a 7/8 and three card options to play on turn 10; one gives a minion +10/+10, another does 10 randomly distributed damage, the last fills the board with 3/3 minions.  It isn't as impactful immediately as a turn 7 Dr. Overpowered, but it will win hands for you against decks that would normally take this rogue deck down otherwise.

I played this deck with some budget swaps and it carried me to Rank 5 on Wild so thanks for that.

Getting to the business, I see no mention of Assassinate in the swap section, I'm running it in place of Big Game Hunter and i can say that while it's a tempo loss in a tempo deck it gets so much value that I think it's worth the slot.

Personally I'd keep playing Assassinate even if I got the BGH since my main target is usually Tirion Fordring, but I'm not advocating for an outright swap, just a mention as a viable alternative for 5-Mana removal.

Can't voice an opinion on Shadow Strike but I'm not too fond of Sap here since this deck isn't that fast and usually when you can't or don't want to trade into stuff it means you don't want to deal with it so I'd rather have it dead than delaying for a turn but this is an opinion as I haven't tested Sap either, I can say however that if you get a strong field early you'd rather Sap a Sludge Belcher rather than Assassinate.

If someone wants go go even more budget than this version (like me) I suggest Stormwind Champion in place of Sky Golem since it gets a lot of value with all the token generation that this deck gets, it does require a board to be effective but if you haven't a board with this deck you are losing badly.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
