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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
