Interesting deck, considering that most cards are common and all cards are craft-able this might actually be new player friendly.

I'm running -1 Loot +1 Thalnos, -1 Inventor +1 leeroy. The deck seems to work against aggro shaman but I'm having a lot of trouble with warrior and priest, I thought it would lose really hard against druid with all the taunts but so far it seems that they just get out tempo'ed really hard especially if I got sap in hand.

If it were just the fact that you had to attack every turn when you have the Swarmer on the board, OK, I could live with that. But it also dictates the order of your attacks. Want to clear the Spirit Wolf with your Swarmer, then clear the Abusive Sergeant hiding behind it with your dagger? Sorry, no can do.

Unearthed Raptor seems like an obvious substitute with 2 Hucksters and 2 Hoarders in the deck. If I figure that on average 1 of my 2 Raptors can draw me a card, this allows me to replace one of the Gnomish Inventors with a more powerful 4-drop such as a second Dark Iron Dwarf. Seems like all-around improvement to me.

Personally I replaced the other Gnomish with a second Fan of Knives, but if I hadn't I would be wondering whether Cult Master mightn't be a better fit for this deck.

@BlueSheepCW is truly a bad matchup, but it still can be won if you make sure you don't overextend because of whirlwind effects and Brawl.

@mgoetzeAbout Cult Master, you want to keep up the pressure with aggressive cards and start drawing in the late-game, but that's where you don't want to trade. So, you shouldn't play her early because she is too weak, and not trading in the late-game doesn't allow you to draw cards from her.

Is swarmer must have here?

No, Unearthed Raptor is better anyway, as I wrote above. ;)

4 cards - 2 card draws, 2 subpar card draws, and you want to include Unearthed Raptor for them. A lot of times you will have to drop it without copying deathrattle, and even when you manage to copy the deathrattle, it isn't good enough to make it "pay" for the times you don't copy anything.
So, I am now watching Sottle's VOD of this deck, and he gets more value from Silithid Swarmer than he would get from Unearthed Raptor, so even in high ranks, Silithid Swarmer seems better.

No, I want to include Unearthed Raptor because it's a 3/4 that can attack whenever I want in any order I want. The fact that it can sometimes copy a Deathrattle - and in my experience it's not that rare - is just a bonus. I would also consider Harvest Golem or Twilight Elder over Silithid Swarmer.

I watched some of Sottle's VOD also. It is of course hard to tell without seeing the other player's hand, but I felt like a 3/4 would often have done just as well as a 3/5.

The extra health often proved itself very handy at times, and the drawback of having to attack each turn before the swarmer didn't seem that severe either. However, if one includes Deadly Poison or faces ramp druids, then a different card would be better than Silithid Swarmer, but in current meta with this specific build, I think that Silithid Swarmer is a good card.

looked at this deck today and started to really like it because it looks like a  rogue arena draft ..and since rogues in arena are all about tempo i was curious about 2 cards that came to my mind as an inclusion but cant tell how much they can either affect the strategy of the deck or might be aiding it slightly ..the 2 cards are Undercity Valiant  and Shado-Pan Rider . will appreciate some explanation if i was going to include any of the 2 cards and how they will affect the construction of the deck  ..thanks in advance

@PancakeMonkShado-Pan Rider is rather expensive and does not help you with tempo (that much) or card draw, and therefore is not important for the deck in any way. Undercity Valiant's ability is too weak, but can be used as a budget swap if you lack any card in the deck.

totally agree specially for shado-pan rider ..for his cost in this deck strategy you are usually finishing the game and dont need more staying power and rather trying to find the burst damage to kill your opponent and for the undercity valiant  he is a more expensive Flame Juggler with no point of extending for a combo while you are looking for board dominance ..the idea to put the 2 cards above came before trying out the deck and i can almost guarantee that they will be just terrible to include n this deck ..thanks for your reply man ^^)

Hi, I just started testing out jeweled scarab in this deck and its amazing! I love getting Perditionsblade or other extra burst and almost everytime when played on turn 2 you will have a turn 3 play, try it out and tell me what u think =)

I tried Scarab and Novice and found them to just not quite be good enough.

Regarding all the discussion about Raptor above, that change is definitely viable. I do prefer the Swarmer, I think it's a really high skill-cap card though and takes a lot of work to get right, but Raptor is definitely not much weaker at all. This deck in the exact form posted is the deck I used to get Legend on EU this Season and I had a 70%+ winrate on the climb.

I'm a newish player so I don't have Silithid, Raptor and DI Dwarf. What are some decent replacements for those cards that would help me get to rank 15? I have the first wings of LoE and BrM if it matters.

You can try second Fan of Knives (against flood decks), Deadly Poisons or Abusive Sergeants.

A very nice deck, I like it a lot!How do you suggest to deal with big targets,for example - C,thun?

You have to pressure enough to win before C'Thun, Rogue in general just can't really deal with it without playing bad cards like Assassinate.

Recently, my Huckster picked up a Charged Hammer. An awesome card for this deck - good thing I wasn't playing Silithid Swarmer, though. ;)

deck is working really nice , I added leeroy instead of 1 argent commander , is it a good switch or should  inventor be removed ? to me she's doing a very nice work as it's a good durable target for  cold blood and the draw keeps the deck fluid

Remove the Gnomish Inventor instead. The problem with switching an Argent Commander for Leeroy Jenkins is that you switch out one of the deck's most versatile cards for a pure finisher. Removing a single of the seven card draw effects (nine if you include Undercity Huckster) is better than removing one of the two "I need that minion dead NOW!" tempo swing cards. And sending good ole Leeroy to careen into a minion is a desperation measure, since he wil almost always die and he grants your opponent two Black Whelps he can immediately put to good use against you.

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
