Loved Questing Rogue before MSG and love it still. 
This version has some aggro early game which give you more breathing room and tactics depending on what your playing against.
Just like before I like to keep Questing in my hand and mulligan for it, even vs aggro opponents. You need to have some balls though.

See the replay  in the link. ^_^
Turn 5 was awkward I traded in on the spell power totem because Lave Burst still exists. 
Made a good comeback after a really good aggro start of my opponent. But Questing Adventurer saved my ass once again!

The lack of Thalnos in any Rogue deck suprises me, I guess the spell damage is mostly irrelevant against 1 health pirates?

If you are encountering lots of Pirate decks, you might want to look at this variant of the deck. It cuts out SI:7 Agent for (you guessed it) Bloodmage Thalnos and The Aggro Magnet in order to have more options to deal with those pesky sea dogs.

Everytime you write Leeroy, I learn a new way to describe it. Keep up the good work :)

I don't have Tomb Pillager - what do u think of replacing him with Arcane Giant?

It could be alright since the deck is already running double Conceal. The issue is that the deck does not run enough spells that can be used before you drop the Arcane Giants, meaning that their mana cost will still be high(-ish). You could consider running cards from the other build - Leeroy Jenkins and Bloodmage Thalnos. You could also try some spells to replace The Coin from Tomb Pillager, such as Shiv. You could also go with tech cards - Dark Iron Skulker or Acidic Swamp Ooze.

I realy like playing this deck.

It is way more satisfying winning this way compared to a "stupid" pirate aggro warrior deck imo.

I would have loved to see this warriors face:

(But I have to admit - winning with Pirate Warrior isn't as easy as I thought. After 21 games I have just 11 wins with pirate warrior. With the rogue deck my win ratio is way better. But obviously the number of games isn't realy that huge until now)

any substitution for edwin? is the only card i miss from this deck

I would recommend Bloodmage Thalnos or Leeroy Jenkins, or if your budget is limited, you could try the second Swashburglar Keizoku mentioned, or an Acidic Swamp Ooze to help you win against pirate warriors, who seem to be pretty much an even matchup.

Shiv, a second Counterfeit Coin or a second Swashburglar. Be aware though that those are rather poor substitutes and that you should make crafting Edwin VanCleef a top priority if you want to play this deck.

thank you for convincing me to craft edwin. this deck might not be as good as those running thalanos and leeroy (i might be wrong, first time miracle player here) but it's the best fun i've had in this game. i still have to learn playing this deck but i quite enjoy it at ranks 12-10.

If you get/have Leeroy Jenkins or Bloodmage Thalnos, you can swap them in for SI:7 Agents and see which playstyle you prefer.

Patches the Pirate is very important on this deck? Just missing him, but dunno if i spend 1600 dust on him.

Patches the Pirate is indeed a very powerful card and I recommend crafting it, especially when it's used in so many decks. In the meantime, you can use a second SwashburglarLeeroy Jenkins or Bloodmage Thalnos.

im pretty sure Red Mana Wyrm would work

Red Mana Wyrm is too slow. Edwin VanCleef's low cost allows him to be a part of a bigger combo, allowing him to be huge in just one turn. Red Mana Wyrm does not have such option as it costs two mana crystals more. Additionally, 6 health on turn 5 is not that hard to deal with. You also can't afford to drop Red Mana Wyrm as a 2/6, unlike dropping Edwin VanCleef as a 4/4. Lastly, Red Mana Wyrm grows too slowly, gaining only 2 attack per spell (not even a card), making it a not-so-good card into this aggressive deck, sadly.

      The final stage of the HCT 2017 Worldc Championship has kicked off with the group stage. On Thursday, we saw matches on groups A and B. Beware because spoilers are following!
      Group A
      This group consists of Frederik "Hoej" Nielsen, Julien "DocPwn" Bachand, Jon "Orange" and Chen "tom60229" Wei Lin. The first match of the day was between the Danish Hoej vs the Canadian DocPwn (2-3). This was one of the longest matches, with both players displaying exceptional skill. It all culminated into the 5th game, where DocPwn managed to get his Keleseth Rogue early game going and beat Hoej's Priest. In the other game, tom60229 from Taiwan easily beat Orange from Sweden with a score of 3-1.
      The two defeated players, Hoej and Orange, proceeded to play against each other. Hoej's Murloc Paladin, the deck that made him stand out compared to other contestants, betrayed him as he lost 3 times in a row with it! Thus, one of the favourites for the World Championship was eliminated. DocPwn also sweeped his opponent tom, but he had a much harder time. Their last game, with Keleseth Rogue for DocPwn and Jade Druid for tom, had quite a few upsets and you should definitely watch it.
      The decider match between Orange and tom60229 will take place on Saturday.
      Group A Match W-L Total W-L DocPwn 2-0 6-2 Orange 1-1 4-3 tom60229 1-1 3-4 Hoej 0-2 2-6 Group B
      Muzahidul "Muzzy" Islam, Jason "JasonZhou" Zhou, Aleksandr "Kolento" Malsh and Samuel "SamuelTsao" Tsao play in this group. Muzzy, who represents America and is one of the favourite's to win the World Championship, beat the Chinese JasonZhou with a score of 3-1. In the next match, even though SamuelTsao made some mistakes, he managed to even the score with the Ukranian legend. In their final game, the young Taiwanese's Priest beat Kolento's Druid with an impressive 46-damage OTK (3-2).
      The elimination series between Kolento and JasonZhou is totally nail-biting! The two experienced players evened out each other and it all came down to the final game with a Keleseth Rogue mirror match. Jason drew better and he managed to eliminate crowd favourite Kolento (along with everyone who voted for him) with a score of 3-2. SamuelTsao managed to beat Muzzy with the same score in another intense series. Their last match (Warlock vs Priest) had a lot of upsides, but in the end luck smiled to SamuelTsao.
      The decider match between Muzzy and JasonZhou will take place on Saturday.
      Group B Match W-L Total W-L SamuelTsao 2-0 6-4 Muzzy 1-1 5-4 JasonZhou 1-1 4-5 Kolento 0-2 4-6 Final Remarks
      Thursday was a day of surprises, particularly unpleasant ones for Europe. Favourites Kolento (RIP packs) and Hoej were eliminated; I am mostly suprised about Hoej, since he had one of the strongest deck line-ups of this Championship. Statistically speaking, I don't think we'll have a European World Champion this time.
      On the other hand, outsiders DocPwn and SamuelTsao managed to come out on the top of their groups. DocPwn's effort is certainly admirable, since he's not exactly a full-time professional Hearthstone player: he was calm, level-headed and showed some exceptional critical decision making. In contrast, Samuel's youth and inexperience were quite evident, but his opponents also underestimated him. I think he has a lot to show for in the future.
      The not-so-surprising highlight of the day was Warlock being banned in almost all matches. Among the decks that stood out were Orange's Hunter (he's the only one that brought one and he won 2/2 of his games with it) and JasonZhou's interestingly teched Aggro Druid.
      Day 2 of the Group Stage is currently underway, so make sure to watch it!

      The two Hearthstone developers talked to IGN about the design process behind some of the most impactful cards from Kobolds & Catacombs.
      First of all, Peter Whalen and Mike Donais confirmed that there will be an update on February, a month after the World Championship. This patch will contain new events and possibly balance changes. They will take a look at the meta as it's been and as it is in the World Championship and they will decide accordingly.
      Moving on, they talked about some of the classes and how K&C cards have affected them. Starting with Warlock, Cubelock was a deck that was tested internally and it was an archetype the team was "certainly concerned about and [they] played a bunch of games with it". Carnivorous Cube was also tested internally in Recruit Hunter and in Quest Druid. As far as Possessed Lackey is concerned, there was a second version of it that read "Battlecry: If you control a Demon, Recruit a Demon", while Dark Pact was 0 mana at some point. Lastly, Rin, the First Disciple's seals used to have different effects and Azari, the Devourer was a 15/15 untargetable minion.
      The two devs talked next about the other dominating class of the current meta: Priest. Mike Donais pointed out that Highlander Priest was already doing well, so it was only given one new card: Psychic Scream. On the other hand. Big Priest has a pretty medium win rate, even though it can feel frustrating to play against. It's also a deck that will lose several cards in the upcoming rotation. At this point, the devs repeated that they are looking forward to develop and see in action new playstyles in the post-Barnes era. Finally, during the design process Twilight's Call could summon any minion, not just Deathrattles, but this was deemed too powerful.
      The next class to be discussed was Rogue. The team is happy with how balanced the Kingsbane Rogue deck turned out to be. Some internal iterations of the Rogue legendary weapon were dual-wielded daggers or a weapon that had the Battlecry: Discover a card, everything you draw is a copy of that. Mike also talked about Valeera the Hollow: he expected her to be more powerful than she already is, but maybe players will find a way to use her more in the future.
      There were a few words about Hearthstone's currently weakest class: Shaman. The devs think that the Shaman Spellstone is a powerful "sleeper" card, although maybe there's presently not a proper deck for it. They were also slightly worried about Unstable Evolution. Another "sleeper" card for them is Warrior's Drywhisker Armorer.
      An important point is that when asked about Corridor Creeper, Peter said that it's "one of the cards that raised a red flag". Lastly, they talked about King Togwaggle and the numerous iterations he had - all around swapping decks with your opponent. The penalty on the spell card isn't high enough on purpose, because they didn't want Togwaggle to be a super competitive card.
      I've tried to summarise the most important points, but you should definitely check out the entire interview on IGN. There's much more detail behind the design process of Kobolds & Catacombs, while there is also temp artwortk of cards as well as two cards that never made it into the game!

      This week's Brawl honours the 3 previous Hearthstone World Champions!
      The 2018 World Championship is about to begin and Team 5 is celebrating by giving us a very special Tavern Brawl. In this Brawl, you get to play with decks that the previous world champions from 2014, 2015 and 2016 used on their way to the top. Your player name will even change to the respective Champion: Firebat, Ostkaka or Pavel!
      Here are the deck archetypes you can get:
      Firebat's Undertaker Hunter Firebat's Ramp Druid Firebat's Miracle Rogue Firebat's Zoolock Ostkaka's Patron Warrior Ostkaka's Oil Rogue Ostkaka's Freeze Mage Pavel's Tempo Mage Pavel's Malygos Miracle Rogue Pavel's Midrange Shaman Pavel's C'Thun Warrior Pavel's Malygos OTK Druid You might think: "why would I want to play a deck from 2014 with cards that have been nerfed"? Well, all cards are on their pre-nerfed versions, therefore they are basically in the same state as when originally used by each World Champion. So, say hello to pre-nerf Undertaker, Leper Gnome, Hex and many others.
      Amnesiac can never catch a break.
      A slight inconsistency is that cards that generate other cards or tokens, like Piloted Shredder or Babbling Book, can generate cards/tokens from later expansions. For example, my opponent's dead Shredder created Friendly Bartender, a card that neither Champion had encountered at their time.
      Enjoy the Brawl and tune in to the World Championship this weekend!
