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.

      This is a brand new Constructed Tavern Brawl.
      In Battle of the Bans, you pick a class and you initially make a deck of four cards. Your opponent bans one of them and then your deck is filled with copies of the remaining three cards.
      The "ban phase" happens after the mulligan but before turn one, and will show 3 of your opponent's cards plus a mystery card. If you pick the mystery card to ban, it will be revealed to you. If you have copies of the card your opponent chose to ban in your hand, they will be replaced randomly by your 3 other cards.
      To keep things balanced, the following cards have been banned from Battle of Bans: Jade Idol, Ice Block, Time Out!, Patches the Pirate and Whizbang the Wonderful.
      The concept of this Tavern Brawl is very interesting. Not only do you need to pick the proper cards that work well together, you also have to keep into account that one of them will get banned. In turn, you also need to be smart with your ban choice.
      This Brawl is very similar to Top 3: one of the decks that is really consistent in both of these Brawls is Mech Hunter with Metaltooth Leaper. Jade Shamans seem to be doing well as you get to summon even larger men every consecutive turn. Discardlock is reportedly performing very solidly, as well. A really solid counter-deck includes Holy Wrath and Shirvallah, the Tiger.
      As far as bans are concerned, since this Brawl seems to favour aggro decks in general, make sure to ban any taunts your opponent has. Alternatively, you can try a spell-based Mage or Priest deck.
      Feel free to share the decks that worked for you in the comments!

      The community card reveals for RIse of Shadows will happen during the next ten days.
      The reveal of the... reveal schedule was done a bit differentl this time, since there was no official article. Only the dates and the links for the various community sites and streams were posted on the Rise of Shadows official website.






      There was also no mention for the customary reveal streams, although we suspect one of them might happen between the 22nd and the 25th of March and a last one will happen during the first week of April. The expansion releases on April 9.

      To ensure the integrity of Hearthstone esports, Blizzard has banned the two Taiwanese players who were previously accused of wintrading and stream sniping.
      As a reminder, Roger and Reall were caught wintrading on April 2018. Moreover, the Chinese Taipei team, consisting of 2018 World Champion tom60229, Roger, Shaxy and Reall, was caught streamsniping during the Hearthstone Global Games and were consequently disqualified.
      Due to these events, there were several protests about Roger being crowned Winter Champion a month ago and qualifying for the this year's World Championship. Blizzard feels that Roger earned his Championship spot legitimately.
      However, Roger and Reall will not be allowed to participate in Hearthstone Grandmasters in 2019. The Grandmasters tier is the highest one in the revamped system for Hearthstone esports; it is still not known how exactly Grandmasters is going to work.
      Here is the full message regarding Roger and Reall:
      u/BlizzMilkfat
      Hi all – Sam Braithwaite, Senior Global Franchise Lead for Hearthstone esports here. As we prepare for the 2019 HCT World Championship, I wanted to take the opportunity to address the community’s feedback about one of our professional players, Luo "Roger" Shengyuan, who recently won the HCT Winter Championship.
      In Oct. 2018, during the Hearthstone Global Games, we discovered that team Chinese Taipei, which included Roger, tom60229, Shaxy, and Reall had violated the rules to gain a competitive advantage. In response, we administered the penalty outlined in the rules at the time, and disqualified team Chinese Taipei from the competition.
      But previously, in April 2018, allegations of Roger and Reall participating in win-trading had surfaced. After an investigation, we discovered their involvement in the incident but did not issue any official warning in response to their rule violation due to an internal miscommunication.
      We now realize that our previous rules around these scenarios and our enforcement of them did not meet the standards of our community. We take full responsibility for this. Moving forward, we will be reevaluating our rules for the 2019 season and are committed not only to improving, but also to being more transparent about the way we administer warnings, penalties, and rulings.
      Our failure should not diminish Roger’s accomplishments. He earned his championship at HCT Winter and his spot at the upcoming HCT 2019 World Championship on his own merit and in compliance with the official HCT competition ruleset.
      While Roger and Reall may still compete in Hearthstone Masters Qualifiers and Masters Tour events, due to having two rule violations last year, they will not be invited to the inaugural year of Hearthstone Grandmasters. Grandmasters will be the highest level of competitive Hearthstone, and its competitors will be held to higher standards, not just in performance, but also in conduct.
      Thank you for all your feedback, your support, your patience, and understanding. Hearthstone esports wouldn’t be what it is without you, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts as we prepare to embark on a new chapter of Hearthstone esports in just a few short months.

      A Legendary Hunter minion and an Epic Priest spell were revealed earlier on an Instagram story by PlayHearthstone.
      Oblivitron is a Legendary minion for Hunter:

      Lazul's Scheme is an interesting spell for Priest:

      As expected, Hagatha is a Shaman Legendary minion and she has a very versatile effect.
      The card was revealed by @PlayHearthstone on Twitter:
      Swampqueen Hagatha is one of these cases where the cardbox is barely enough to fit the explanation for the whole card. "Teach it 2 Shaman spells" means that you will get the Discover option twice and the Horror (a tribeless 5/5 token minion) will cast them as a Battlecry. Note that if you Discover a targeted spell, you can choose who to target with it - it's not random. According to Peter Whalen, the first choice is random but the second will offer only non-targetable spells (like Bloodlust or Chain Lightning) if your first choice was a targeted spell.
      Now that we are done with the explanation of the card, we can try and guesstimate how good it's going to be. Even though it offers a versatile Build-a-spell-like effect and it has a very interesting design, Swampqueen Hagatha is a huge tempo loss on turn 7 and requires a lot of setting-up and foresight. On the other hand, you can make up the tempo loss when you play the Horror and it also works greatly with Shudderwock.
      With Hagatha's Scheme and now the new Hagatha herself, it looks like we may be heading towards a Control Shaman era. What do you think?
