Tomb Pillager is replaceable in this deck? In Miracle rogue, there is no replacement i know ,but in this aggro deck can i replace it with something?

Genzo, the Shark for refill and good Barnes synergy, and Bloodmage Thalnos for spell power and draw. From cheaper cards (dust-wise) you can use Argent SquireDefender of Argus or one copy of Acidic Swamp Ooze or Dread Corsair (or any combination of these cards).

This looks interesting.
Wish I could afford this deck to try it. I wonder how it stands against the warrior pirate deck...

This deck has a fantastic burst like Pirate Warrior, if not better, but it has something Pirate Warrior doesn't have, the ability to manage the board without losing too much aggression. Cards like BackstabEviscerate and SI:7 Agent can help to deal with their early board presence while creating presence of your own and Edwin VanCleef can prove to be too much for them in the early game due to the lack of removal in Pirate Warrior. On top of that, Swashburglar and Shaku, the Collector gives you access to countless warrior cards that can either help fight for board control or push for lethal.

It does have the burst potential definitely, but it is also missing something very important, an imposing weapon. Perdition's Blade is obviousy not it and Assassin's Blade is expensive for its attack. What about going for Obsidian Shard? Cards from Shaku, the Collector and Swashburglar will make it cheaper more often than not. If you can hit a 2 mana 3/3, I think it is a bit better than the Wicked Knife, even a 3 mana shard is not bad, thinking you can hit Naga Corsair with it. I would maybe swap Bloodmage Thalnos and Vilespine Slayer for 2 copies, or maybe an Argent Commander, I think it serves more of a board control tool, for taunts, rather than a finishing burst, at least here in this deck.

Obsidian Shard could work but I'm not sure about running two copies. If you do choose to run it I would take Barnes out since he doesn't have the greatest targets in this particular deck. Bloodmage Thalnos is a keeper due to the card draw and he helps with Backstab and Eviscerate while Vilespine Slayer can help remove taunts to help push for lethal or remove a problematic minion without having to trade. As for Argent Commander, yes he does well with board control but he can also be used as a finisher with Cold Blood when you don't have Leeroy Jenkins. If you feel like  you do need a second copy of Obsidian Shard the only other minion I could see you living without a second copy of is Small-Time Buccaneer. He is great early game but after his nerf he isn't as good as he used to be later on.

thats great feedback KingMe, I just crafted Jenkins finally yesterday, as for now Im missing a few of these legendary's. Might find another spell booster to replace Thalnos for now. Would have to agree that Small-Time B is not a very strong card. He's just too small and slow. Vilespine is still one of my best minions ever. Running that together with shadowstep can create some serious Damage. 

I Am a few months in to Hearthstone. Have (Rouge Quest and Preist Quest, and decent amount of essentials for Mage.) Am considering the painful decision of Killing my Preist colection and all the cards to get about a 1000 dust, so that I can save up and get the missing Legendary's for this deck, that is Thalnos, Edwin and Shaku. 

Witch one is more essential for a pirate aggro to craft first you think?
And what do you guys think off killing preist of to get closer to this deck?
Thanks

By the way there's another version running two Obsidian over here.

Edwin VanCleef is definitely more essential and can be used in more Rogue archetypes than Shaku, the Collector.  While Bloodmage Thalnos is a staple in most Rogue decks, there are budget replacements for him that are effective. As for killing off your priest cards to work on your rogue that is totally up to you. If you don't see yourself playing priest and you really enjoy playing rogue than personally I would go for it and honestly It is better to have all (or at least most) of the cards for one deck than a few for every deck.

Obsidian Shard has a lot more synergy in Sempok's deck than ours since he is running double Hallucination and Undercity Huckster so it makes more sense. It can still work in our version but it wouldn't be played as cheap as often as it would in his.

Thanks again KingMe, (Ahoy! Guest here). 

I think I will have to consider killing of Preist then, to focus my dust on Rouge.
I crafted most of the warrior pirate for now, (the small amount of dust needed was easier to obtain), and I must say it's loads of fun but lack some of the finesse that Rouge has. I will however need to save up for Magni Bronzbeard now, since I cant stand to look at Garrosh (however the price tag of 10 euros is painful).  

So craft Edwin first... 
Btw. What do u think is the best budget spell replacement for Thalnos?

I would craft Edwin VanCleef first, yes. Bloodmage Thalnos' budget replacements are either Kobold Geomancer for the spell power or Loot Hoarder for the card draw. The choice is yours on which effect you feel you need more.

Thank you!
After writing here I opened one singe pack of cards (after loosing 3-0 in arena), the first card that came up was a Golden The Voraxx! So he got dusted and now I have Edwin in my deck, I also dusted my whole Priest Deck (Quest and all) and now I can afford another Legendary! 

Having a bit of a hard time Deciding weather to craft Shaku, the Collector or Bloodmage Thalnos... I feel though I'm leaning towards Shaku. He just looks cooler. ;) Also if I do, I will almost have the full Pirate Rouge set in Sempok's deck, Almost... ;) Having that said, Thalnos does seem like a more solid pick maybe. Hmmm...

This is not right, just sayin'. I mean, maybe you really want to play this deck and all, but you will regret this.

With this being said, I think Bloodmage Thalnos is a better option, maybe not for this deck, but in general. It has more uses, and it is one of the most versatile legendaries in the game. Rogue, Mage and Druid could make use of it easily, some Shaman decks also utilizes it as early spell damage.

I don't think I will regret it, It was a sacrifice that needed to be made.
I have three classes left (Warrior, Mage and Rogue).

From a strategic point of view you Need to dust minions, so that you can craft the decks you actually care about. 
Once your decks are complete you can keep random cards that come to you for another class you are interested in. Soon enough you will start filling up the new stuff since you already have created a focus in your game. 

Thanks for the feedback on Thalnos. I do see that he's the better minion.
Having that said I feel Kobold will serve the spell power for now. 
If I get Shaku I will have almost a complete deck of Sempok's Ladder Pirate.
And I like that feeling of trying it out like that before I tweak it. 

Then I probably craft Bloodmage Thalnos next...

EDIT: I crafted Shaku, and so far I love him. :)
Thanks for the feedback guys.

      Will these three new Treant cards see play in the meta? Or will they come up short like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood?
       
      Three new Treant-themed cards were revealed today by PCGamer:
       

       
      First up we have Dendrologist. The floor on this card is solid, as a 2 Mana 2/3 is passable in a pinch. The ceiling on Dendrologist is higher than you might think, as his Battlecry is quite strong. Druid might have more high-quality spells than any other class in the game (Wild Growth, Nourish, Ultimate Infestation, Branching Paths, Naturalize, and Savage Roar to name a few), which leads me to believe that Dendrologist will be a powerhouse if Druid gets sufficient Treant support in this expansion.
       

       
      3 Mana for 4/4 worth of stats is already a great deal on its own, and the added Treant synergy puts this card over the top. The fact that this card creates two bodies makes it even better in aggro decks that look to go wide and finish with cards like Fungalmancer. This is a very reasonable card to curve into on turn 3, and it hints that the Treant deck will likely be quite aggressive.
       

       
      Finally we get Mulchmuncher, a big fat Mech with Rush and a dangerously tempting Mana reduction effect. We know from experience with Corridor Creeper and Giant cards how strong it can be to play big Minions for low amounts of Mana, but it won't be that easy to reduce Mulchmuncher's cost. If the Mana Treants from Living Mana count as Treants for this card, then I can easily see Mulchmuncher as finisher in an aggressive Treant decks.
      Will these new Treant cards turn Force of Nature and Witchwood Apple into playable cards? Or do you think the Treant cards will fall flat like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      The latest Hearthside Chat with Peter Whalen revealed Supercollider, Flobbidinous Floop, and Whizbang the Wonderful from The Boomsday Project.
       
      In the latest Hearthside Chat, Senior Game Designer Peter Whalen explained some of the themes (science) and inspirations (more science) for The Boomsday Project. In doing so, he spoiled three new incredibly exciting cards. If you're interested in watching the video (which is just 4:59 seconds long), you can do so right here:
       
       
      Card Reveals
       

       
      This card gets an "A" for flavor, as I don't think its possible to come up with a better design for a card called "Supercollider" in a science-themed set.
      This Warrior weapon has the potential to be a 2 or 3 for 1, as it can set up trades quite easily if you attack your opponent's largest minion with it. However, attacking your opponent's largest minion means you will also be dealing plenty of face damage to yourself, making high amounts of armor gain a requirement for putting this card in your deck. For that reason, Supercollider plays excellently with Baku the Mooneater, and I expect it to see play in Odd Warrior decks.
       

       
      Next up is another card with an excellent name, Flobbidinous Floop. This guy provides a Faceless Manipulator-style effect for Druid decks for just 4 Mana, which will almost certainly make him a combo piece in a variety of Druid decks. Between Innervate, Twig of the World Tree, and Biology Project, there will almost certainly a few new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop. He can also be used in Big Druid decks one turn after playing a huge minion, such as Ysera, Hadronox, or The Lich King, to become a 3/4 copy of a card with a powerful effect. Expect to see plenty of Flobbidinious Floop in the new meta!
       

       
      Next we get Whizbang the Wonderful, which is one of the most unique and exciting cards in the history of Hearthstone. What does he do? Let me show you:
       

       
      Whizbang the Wonderful replaces your entire deck. He replaces your hero, and he names your new deck "Whizbang is Wonderful". When you enter a game with this deck, you will be randomly handed 1 of 18 recent deck recipes by Blizzard at the start of the game.
      Will Whizbang be competitively viable? Almost certainly not, but I think that question is almost entirely missing the point. By adding Whizbang to the game, Blizzard has offered new players a way to access 18 different for just 1600 dust! Though its unlikely these 18 premade decks will be 100% meta optimal, they will almost certainly be viable enough for newer players to climb the earlier ranks while playing a wide variety of decks and learning new cards. This is the closest thing that Blizzard will probably ever do to selling pre-constructed decks (something that many other cards games do), which in my eyes is a major step forward. Will tryhards be disappointed when they open Whizbang? Probably. But not every Legendary minion needs to be a home run for the hardcore audience. Whizbang is the new player's best friend, and will surely add much more joy to the game of Hearthstone than he takes away.
      What do you think about today's spoilers? Will Supercollider see play? Can you find any new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop? And are you as excited about Whizbang the Wonderful as I am? Let us know in the comments what you think about these new cards, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this new Mech card could be a serious player in the meta.
       
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" has revealed another new Magnetic card from The Boomsday Project, called Annoy-o-Module:
       

       
      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this guy gains Magnetic and 1/2 worth of stats for just 2 Mana! The stats and keywords this card instantly adds to another Mech seem quite strong when you compare it to Blessing of Kings, which adds 2 more Attack to a minion but does not add Divine Shield and Taunt. This card isn't awful when played on it's own, and it plays well in a deck with Corpsetaker. Annoy-o-Module checks enough for boxes for me, and I full expect it to see play in the upcoming meta.
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" is short but sweet, and you can watch the full video right here:
       
       
      Do you think Annoy-o-Module impact the game as much as Annoy-o-Tron did? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      Use Mini-Rag to destroy enemy minions and level up your"Wow!" emote in this week's Tavern Brawl.
       
      In celebration of The Midsummer Fire Festival, this week's Tavern Brawl is all about Ragnaros, Lightlord. Well, Mini-Rag to be more specific:
       

       
      A 2/3 Ragnaros with Immune will start the game on one side of the board. At the end of each turn, Mini-Rag will deal 1 damage to a random target on the other side of the board for each Attack he has, then swap to the other side of the board. Each time he kills an enemy minion he will gain 1 Attack, growing in power as the game progresses.
       

       
      Due to the sudden pressure that Mini-Rag applies to both players, I highly recommend playing an Aggro deck. I used Odd Rogue in my first game to take down an Odd Hunter. You could also play an anti-aggro deck to try and counter all the aggro decks running around, but be sure to play some self-healing such as Branching Paths or Healing Rain.
       

       
      The Tavern Brawl will track how many minion kills that Mini-Rag racks up. After 8, 30, and 60 Minion kills, you will level up the fireworks in your "Wow!" emote. This is a returning Tavern Brawl from last year's festival, and your running total of Mini-Rag kills from last year's festival carries over to this year. Happy hunting!
