Hey what can i replace trogg with? i don't have loe right now

Trogg is really strong in Shaman decks nowadays and doesn't really have a replacement, but I guess if you really must replace it then try Argent Squire.

Hey what can i replace trogg with? i don't have loe right now

 

I'm playing 100% FTP on EU and I was able to get Trogg in a couple of weeks of Arena + daily quests. I got a 12-win Arena run, which helped, but it would have only taken a few more days to get it otherwise.

 

The key to earning 1400 gold in this time to buy the two wings of LoE you need is to try to avoid doing 40 and 50 gold quests as much as possible. Do 60 and 100 quests and the free pack quest, but otherwise cancel your quests every day until you get the good ones.

 

Here are the guidelines I used:

 

If you have three quests that are 40g, do the ones that require spells, minions, or face damage while using classes that are not a part of the class quests.

 

If you have a 40g and a 50g quest that involve the same class, do the OTHER quest, whatever it is. On the next day, cancel the 40g quest that you left. Likewise if you have a 50g and a 60g quest with the same class.

 

If you have a 40g quest for spells, minions, or face damage, a random class 40g quest, and a 50g quest for another class, your best option is to do the 40g quest for spells. You may accidentally do the 40g spell etc. quest while doing the 50g quest, so you will actually lose a potential 30g rather than the 10g you lose by doing a 40g quest over a 50g quest.

 

If you have a 100g quest, only do it when it won't lead to accidentally completing another quest. These quests are best combined with 60g quests for big burst income.

 

I play shaman on my FTP account because I was lucky enough to open an Al'Akir on one of my first few packs. As such, it is in my interest to get all the best shaman cards I can. Tunnel Trogg is definitely one of these, so if you also like to play shaman, you need this card. Take the time to buy the two wings of LoE you need for this, and you won't regret it.

The deck already runs Argent Squire. If I were to run this without the troggs, I'd probably run an Acidic Swamp Ooze and a Lightning Bolt.

any replacements for thing from below?

 

They are totally worth the 200 dust, but you could use Fire Elemental while you save up.

So I went to try and jam with this deck today but HS is telling me it's a Wild deck and I can't figure out why/if I'm doing anything wrong to make it that way. Could a gold version of a card be screwing with the standard legality?

She isn't replaceable, consider crafting her. It's only 40 + 40 dust

I have trouble with the Master of Evolution in such decks... it is a tough card to play, since your Shaman minions are so cheap and efficient, or have Overload, it is difficult to get value from the Evolution.  Evolving Totems is of limited use since they are considered 1 drops.  The Master is a neat card, I just think it is very hard to use with the way Shaman works

It is most probably a bug. Try deleting that deck, changing it to standard and putting in all the cards.

Defender of Argus, Fire Elemental, second Bloodlust, Earth Shock, second Master of Evo.

Is it viable to run a Knife Juggler in place of a Flame Juggler? Considering the amount of token spawn here, I think it's worth a shot.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
