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.

      The Americas Spring Playoffs and Championship were played over the weekend of May 28-29.
      The new Americas Champion is Muzzy.  Muzzy has long been touted as one of the best ladder players in the world, but has previously not converted this into any big wins. He will go to the World Spring Championship in Shanghai in July, alongside DiegoDias, Ant, and Kuonet who rounded out the top four.
      The tournament was a grueling one, with many players bringing Control Decks, and some of the rounds of Swiss lasting over 3 hours. The archetypes brought by the top four are listed below:
        Muzzy: Control Paladin, Giant Miracle Rogue, Jade Shaman, Quest Warrior
        DiegoDias: Jade Druid, Murloc Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
        Ant: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
        Kuonet: Discover Mage, Control Paladin, Evolve Shaman, Quest Warrior
      As you can see, the meta seems to be healthy, with many viable options.
      Next week is the APAC Spring Playoffs, at which point all sixteen qualifiers for the World Spring Championship will have been decided.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      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.
