This deck is total useless, 10match 9 loose

I started playing this deck for fun and must say that it is rather powerful with 12W-7L so far, so the reason of your losses is in your playstyle and misplays. Could you please provide a few replays?

Can you substitute Ancestral Knowledge with Mana Tide Totem?

Yes, Mana Tide Totem has a great synergy with Evolve. The main problem is that you won't be able to dig for Evolve in the turn you need  it, and you have to hope that your board survives for more turns than with Ancestral Knowledge. I recommend you to craft it when you have the dust.

How about including Barnes in this one? The cost of the 1/1 he summons can be of great value for an evolve, i'm just not sure what to swap. I already swapped Loot Hoarder for Thalnos and 1 Arcanosmith for a Maelstrom Portal...

If you were forced to include Maelstrom Portal, you should swap out a card that is not that good against aggro, such as Ancestral Knowledge or Loot Hoarder.

Wouldn't Novice Engineer be better than Loot Hoarder? You get instant value from her and then can use evolve immediately without losing card draw.

The one attack difference is really big though, and it can help you build a board that you can use Evolve on.

Is nerfed Tuskar Totemic good enough for this deck? he still help you to get thing from below sooner but other than that he is a barely better version of Razorfen hunter

I'd say that there are better drops than him, but I am far from finished testing this deck post-nerf. I have been testing Ragnaros the Firelord and adding C'thun cards (for insane Twin Emperor Vek'lor + Evolve combo), but without major success. I am currently trying Fireguard Destroyer and Flamewreathed Faceless, and it seems okay.

I think he still good enough, he still have synergy with Thing from Below and the taunt totem can help protect you other minions.

This deck has been surprisingly good, I managed to reach rank 10 with it last Sunday with ease, haven't played it since then, but I think it has potential to reach rank 5 at least.

I agree, In Totem builds I still think he is viable. I still run him in my Totem Shaman.

On other hand, the spell damage totem is nothing but 0-2\potential random 2 drop in this deck except of rare cases when it buffs the lightning storm. And you can achieve the same cost rejection by simply hero powering and saving a card.

Tuskar is like hero-powering + placing 1 mana 3\2 that can be evolved to level 4. He is decent but I am curious if there are better options like Argent Horserider for a bit of reach

I would imagine his usefulness depends on what you're playing against. Horserider can be fantastic against certain decks, but he won't do much vs. a full board of 3-4 HP minions.

Would Devolve have a place in this deck now that MSG is out?

 

Not really, this deck already runs 2 Lightning Storms to deal with opponent's board. You can include it as a fun card though.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      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.

      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)

      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)
