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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
