How to replace Leroy ?

Try Reckless Rocketeer, nothing else come to my mind.

@Sottle: Swap section says that you can include Loatheb. Obviously, Loatheb is Naxx and Naxx is not standard

 

How to replace Quick Shot?

More burn, muhahahaha. Flame Juggler, second Explosive, Brave Archer or, my personal favourite, Twisted Worgen.

This deck seems to be a little more successful than Midrange in the current meta. Most decks aren't built to defend against heavy aggression right now. You can run over C'thun decks in particular with ease.

We all know nightblade is the way forward.

What is the reason for Arcane Shot in this deck?

It's damage. That's the reason.

I've seen this deck being run with Agee different cards. Gladiators longbow is one card I've seen for extra burst what card could I replace

This seems like a VERY slow card for the deck. I would even go as far as saying this card is basically useless for this deck. Maybe trying a more mid-range deck is better if you want to use GL?

Yea I agree, I was just wondering because I lost to a hunter running with GL but it must have been a mid range deck and I had the worst card draw on that game

King's Elekk. Miniscule chances to draw a card are roughly equal to 1 damage random shot. 

Flame Juggler would be OK but it lowers your beast count.

I've been away for a few couple month and trying this deck

After 25 games I'm 12-13 (48%) at level 18 - Just wondering if the deck is still strong and I'm just not playing it very well, or is it not really viable anymore?

Anyone still playing this deck what rank are you managing?

The deck is alright in current meta, but since it's the first week of new season, everyone is playing either aggro decks, or decks that punish them. I recommend you to play different decks for now, and return to it a bit later. Hybrid Hunter is really strong currently, so I recommend you to try it. It's similar to face hunter, but has more late-game options.

Thanks for the reply

Now after 50 games with this deck I'm 27-23 (54%) at rank 15 so that's not too bad I guess right? I mean anything over 50% and the bonus stars will do the rest I guess?

Thanks for the deck suggestion, I was playing a mid range deck before I took a break, but since then Kara has landed and it seems to have fallen off the current meta deck list which is a shame since I dont really want to buy Kara just yet

I will try the Hybrid deck you suggested and see how I stand after 25-50 games

Thanks again for the advice

I'm just going to point this out again as it seems to have been forgotten.

Leper Gnome achieves the same face damage but gives us board presence even if it is 1/1. Is the purpose of this not to play it first turn and keep it around for hitting taunts or 4/2, 5/2 minions?

Exactly. Additionally, the damage is instant, so if you topdeck it, you will have lethal, whereas if you topdeck Leper Gnome, it will take a turn to proc, allowing your opponent to kill you or heal back up.

      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.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      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)

      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.
      Daxxarri
      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)
