So I doubt this will get approved but that's ok, I just want you moderators and who created this deck to see this.

I just tried this deck for the very first time, against a golden rogue that had an 8/8 edwin on the board by turn 2.  The attached images are the result after the match.

 

....needless to say I'm liking this deck.

Edit: Images removed by moderator, will allow the comment the stay. People were pretty salty, to say the least.

Had to remove the images unfortunately, but I'll keep the comment. It's nice to see you're doing well with it! :D

Hi! I have a question: why do you play two rockbiterweapons and one lightning bolt instead of the other way around? After the nerf I do not see the advantage of rockbiterweapon over lightning bolt in a deck without doomhammer/Al’Akir.

Not sure, to be honest. @positiv2, ideas?

I have not played the deck yet after the nerf and I could not come up with a satisfying answer, which is why I decided not to answer. My guess is that since the deck does not run any cards that synergize with overload, you are paying two mana anyway for Lightning Bolt without advantage, and it can screw up your next turn. It's also possible that it was overlooked.

I think there is no justification in leaving the Rockbiter Weapons. The key strength in playing Argent Squire was that you could dispatch opposing Totem Golems with ease. Mirror is on the decline, and Feral Spirit found its way back in, so I believe it is not reasonable not to play Tunnel Trogg. Killing X/2s with back up for free is cool, for sure, but it's nothing that Trogg can't handle himself.

Lightning Bolt, in its turn, is simply awesome. In its best shape since 1994.

Here, 1+1 mana does not equal 2 mana. Shocking, I know. But it matters a lot.

Also Bolt benefits from Spell Damage and 4 is the magic number of Standard. There is a real advantage over Rockbiter.

Actually, if you get a bad hand, and you don't get any 2-drop, while your opponent drops one, it is better to play Rockbiter Weapon than Lightning Bolt, as it doesn't prevent a 3-drop from being played next turn. This is a scenario where 1+1 is more expensive than 2.

You can still advance your gameplan with Hero Power, pass.

What you use as an example is a valid, but rather corner case, which does not come up that often from my experience. I say it again - I still believe that even though it's not 100% always that, but Bolt is worth the trouble, while Rockbiter isn't.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a great way to try out some of the new cards from The Witchwood.
       
      Looking for a chance to try out some of the new cards from The Witchwood? This week's Brawl, titled "A Witchy Recipe", features preconstructed decks for each class which are built around some of the less-played cards from the new expansion, including many of the new Legendary minions from the set.
      Here are the names of some of the new cards you can try for yourself in A Witchy Recipe:
      Druid: Hand-size with Witchwood Apple, Ferocious Howl, and Wispering Woods. Hunter: Midrange Dragon/Poison with Carrion Drake, Vilebrood Skitterer, and Emeriss. Mage: Elemental Minions with Book of Specters, Archmage Arugal, and Bonfire Elemental. Paladin: Even Paladin with The Glass Knight and Genn Greymane. Note: If you're looking for a quick win, this deck feels like the most powerful of the bunch. Priest: Odd Priest with Chameleos, Glitter Moth, and Nightscale Matriarch. Rogue: Echo/Burgle with Pick Pocket, Tess Greymane, and Face Collector. Shaman: Battlecry Shaman with Blazing Invocation, Zap!, and Hagatha the Witch. Warrior: Rush with Darius Crowley, Town Crier, and Woodcutter's Axe. Warlock: Self-damage with Blood Witch, Deathweb Spider. and Glinda Crowskin. As usual, the reward for A Witchy Recipe is one pack of Classic.

      The team has finally responded to the community's concerns on the new Shaman legendary minion.
      Two weeks after The Witchwood's release, Team 5 has addressed the issues surrounding Shudderwock. Its animation will go faster and it will cap at 20 Battlecries. Hopefully, it will be less of a nuisance now. Lifedrinker will also receive a bump on its animation speed.
      I assume the fix will go live on April 26 along with the Monster Hunt.
      Jesse Hill
      Recently, our players have had feedback regarding the Shaman card, Shudderwock. We understand that the length of its Battlecry animation and other animations spawned from its Battlecry can be frustrating. In a future update, we will be doubling the animation speed of Shudderwock’s Battlecry so it will lessen the impact on the overall pacing of your current Hearthstone match. In addition, the amount of Battlecries Shudderwock can reproduce will be capped at 20.
      We will also be speeding up the animation of Lifedrinker for similar reasons.
      Thank you for your feedback, and we’ll see you in the Tavern.
      Cheers!

      The rewards are different for each rank. You receive the chest for the best rank you achieve, so do not be afraid of dropping a rank. Additionally, after reaching a milestone rank (ranks in bold), you will not fall below them that season again. This means that if you lose a game at rank 15 with 0 stars, you will not drop to rank 16, but rather stay at rank 15 with no stars.
