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.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
