What do you think of adding Thistle Tea to this deck?

On the plus side, drawing three of the same card almost guarantees you'll be able to complete the quest.

But costing 6 mana means you cant play it until turn 6 at least, and pretty much give up a turn just drawing cards.

You already said it yourself, but 6 mana do nothing is not lovely for an aggro deck. And until then, you would probably finish the quest, which makes the card even worse.

This build is quite aggressive and can only rarely afford to play a 6-mana card draw, though Preparation is a bit more permitting. So, not really, not in an aggro build, just like FanOfValeera said.

This looks so easy when I am being stomped by the flood of 5/5 minions, but so far I have only managed to complete the quest 3 times in 10 tries, and I lost those games too. Maybe I need to go back to being the victim and watch how it works more carefully.

You can often afford to take Damage and deal none yourself until you complete the Quest. While that description isn't perfect in any way, if you use that mentality for a couple of games, it might give you a feel for how things work after it is completed.

Lord almighty, I disenchanted Moroes a while back, 'cause I felt it wasn't viable. Not feeling particularly comfortable creating it again. For now, I added Bloodmage Thalnos just for card advantage.

Any good ideas on a replacement card that doesn't kill this deck?

Bloodmage Thalnos is the card I would suggest. Gives you the draw to complete the quest quicker, gives you spell power for Eviscerate finishes and Fan of Knives anti-shaman clears, and also gives you a cheap body once you complete the quest. So yeah, good swap.

This is the most disappointing deck I ever played, there's no win rate. It also hurts how much dust I've wasted on crafting it.

Are you able to upload a replay for me to take a look at? This is one of the more powerful decks in the meta at this time. You could also go back through Dog's VODs where he reaches #1 legend and see if he was doing anything significantly different to you.

The most common mistake I see is people not holding their charge minions back until after they have completed the quest. You can often clear up your opponent's board very quickly by playing, and re-playing a 5/5 with Charge, and then winning on the next turn.

You could try taking out Moroes and a Violet Teacher, (and the burglars) and playing 2 FireFly and 2 Igneous Elemental. That's a cross between this version and the budget version that might work out okay. You could also try out 2 Bluegill Warrior, which will probably get subbed into the main version soon.

I haven't played in about half a year and, as with Bonemeal87, don't have Kara. I also don't have a Van Cleef or Patches, but other than that I have everything else. I'm willing to spend some dust on Van Cleef or Patches, but if possible I would rather save it for other decks. Would good replacements be Bloodmage, 2 Bluegills, and two others (still debating which), or should I go the 2 Fire Fly, 2 Igneous Elemental, and Bloodmage route? Any advice is appreciated :D

Going to sit on the fence here, but the Bluegills and Elementals are commons, so I'd say "Give it a shot both ways and see what suits you". There are pros and cons to each, so see how it works out either way and take the one that suits your playstyle best. If I were forced to make a choice, I'd try Elementals first.

I need a replacement for Patches.

Bloodmage looks like a good choice.

I am currently using Questing Adventurer.  I am thinking that Loatheb might be better in delaying some of the other quests and preventing annoying AOE spells.  I usually have some "return to hand" options late game, so he could be played more than once.

Patches the Pirate is incredibly powerful, even if you end up drawing him, as he will be a 5/5 with charge, just like Stonetusk Boar. I recommend crafting him as soon as possible. Until then, Bloodmage Thalnos sounds fine.

The murloc that summons a taunt. Vilefin something. The 5/5 taunt is really good when you have your quest since you might've taken a bit of damage doing so and even a 1/1 taunt can save you a decent chunk of hp against pirate warrior if he has to use a weapon charge or a kor'kron to remove it instead of going face.

I love how there are no other decks in current ranked play other than this and Discard lock.  Sucks the fun out of competitive play.

I face taunt warriors, quest priests, quest shamans, aggro shamans and other decks. You could try switching to wild, the meta is even more diverse!

I guess I must be unlucky then cause 9/10 decks I face at any given time is Quest Rogue.

Just noticed the update to this deck. With the elementals and vanishes this is exactly the version of this deck I have been playing for the past couple weeks, just a hair above 50% winrate over 90+ games at rank 5+, but I know there is room for improvement in my play.

I need a replacement for Patches.  Bloodmage seems like a good alternative.

I substituted Questing Adventurer, but am thinking that Lotheb might be helpful at preventing some annoying AOE spells.  Later in the game, I may have some "return to hand" options so Loatheb could be played multiple times.

 

I crafted Patches.  My moved down a couple of ranks, but I seem to be hovering between 13 & 14.  Please critique my replay.

I will modify my deck to match the latest version and see if it helps my gameplay.  8)

Bloodmage Thalnos is a solid swap, both before the quest and after the quest. 
The power of Questing Adventurer is that it can gain a lot of stats. However, this deck runs a lot of situational cards, and you are going to gain a lot of stats from the Crystal Core anyway.

You should have used The Coin on T1. it could have been Counterspell. Playing Kabal Lackey with Counterspell seems like a semi-popular way to counter quest decks, even though it is incredibly easy to play around.
On T3, you should have played the Swashburglar, as you already had 2/4 on the quest, so you would be able to complete the quest even if the mage pinged it. All it did was that it cost you board presence.
I don't understand your reasoning behind T4 at all. The play I would have done is play both Swashburglars, equip weapon, trade into the Medivh's Valet with the weapon and freeze the Kabal Crystal Runner.
Yo should have traded everything on T5. It was pretty obvious the secret was Ice Block, so you can't really afford to let the mage deal face damage, as you were nearing the point of OTK combo.
You should have tried to fill the board to get a strong position. In this case, it even caused your loss, as you got hit with the Greater Arcane Missiles. If you filled the board, the chance of getting hit was smaller, and you would have most likely won if you hadn't got hit by the Greater Arcane Missiles.

Rumor has it that Blizzard once fired some clever WoW developer who loved to play Rogue class and thus overpowered it to the degree of a f*cking shame.

True or not, but the situation (or at least the rumor) seems to repeat itself. This quest is a crying stinky shame.

A game like Hearthstone allows for offensive and defense, a measure and a counter-measure -- like any turn-based game MUST have. In the case of this f*cking "quest", an opponent has ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE to effectively react AT ALL to moving a cheap crappy minion from the hand to the table and back. This masturbation simply cannot be countered!

If I could talk to the developer of this bullshit, I would ask the genius: "Dude, looks like you had suffered a lot from bullying in middle school, hadn't you? Were you dreaming of a machine gun with endless ammunition to teach your offenders a lesson? Poor thing, poor thing..."

How can a reasonable person create such an out-of-balance quest?..

i think you should find a place for a Sherazin, Corpse Flower.

Mimic pod x2 : imho it's heavy

Vanish x2 : imho it's heavy

Stonetusk Boar x2 : not a good card , too many taunts , the result will be you will quest without "effects" , you can't emergency "quest" on him , it's a loss of time.

 

There are only creatures , against mage you will get freezed probably why don't put a x1 of Ironbeak Owl (you can un-freeze your creatures) ? I've used it for quest many , many times against priests and warriors.

      In Chapter 3 of the Dalaran Heist, the League of E.V.I.L sows chaos in the Streets of Dalaran.
      You can purchase this new chapter as part of the $19.99 complete Dalaran Heist bundle. You can also grab Streets of Dalaran, or other individual chapters, for $6.99 or 700 Gold by purchasing them in the in-game shop.
      Chapter 3 Details

      The twist for this chapter is called Crowded Streets. Three untargetable minions will be present on each player's side of the board, restricting the number of minions that can be in play. You can therefore only have 4 minions up at a time.
      The Heroes
      The Streets of Dalaran chapter introduces two new Heroes: the Priest and the Rogue.
      Kriziki is the Priest hero. Here are its potential Hero Powers and starting decks:

      Hero Powers
      Lesser Heal (2 mana) – Restore 2 Health. Disort (2 mana) – Swap a minion’s Attack and Health. Soothe (1 mana) – Give a minion -2 Attack until next turn. Starting Decks
      Disciplined – A typical Priest deck with Divine Spirit and Inner Fire, as well as healing spells Shadows – Shadow-themed cards Visions – Deathrattle minions + 0 mana spells The Rogue hero is Captain Eudora, one of the few World of Warcraft characters in the Dalaran Heist. Here are her Hero Powers and starting decks:

      Hero Powers
      Dagger Mastery (2 mana) – Equip a 1/2 Dagger. Yoink (2 mana) – Add a random card to your hand (from another class). Cut-less (2 mana) – Deal 2 damage to an undamaged minion. Starting Decks
      Skulker – Tempo deck with some Stealth cards Dead Man’s Tale – Deathrattle + Thief cards Kobold’s Desire –  Bouncing and shuffling cards into your deck Rewards
      For now, by beating five bosses in Chapter 3 you will receive three Rise of Shadows card packs. If you have beaten five bosses in each of the previous two chapters, you will now have a total of nine packs. More rewards will follow in the next wings.

      Don't forget to check out our guide for everything you need to know about the Dalaran Heist. We'll be sure to update with the bosses for Chapter 3.

      Also known as Cuvestone, this Tavern Brawl returns for a fourth time overall and a second time with the Standard-only restriction.
      The rules for this Brawl are that you get dealt a one cost card from your deck on turn one, a two cost card on turn two, and so on until turn ten. If there is a turn where there is no card of the appropriate cost in your deck, you will get a random card from your deck.
      Mech decks seem to be extremely oppressive in this format. Hunter is a decent pick, either with a Mech deck or a Spells & Beasts only deck. Lastly, Big Paladin with Alarm-o-Bot and Prismatic Lens is also a decent troll pick.
      As always, the reward for winning in this Tavern Brawl is a Classic pack.

      Time for the meta to shift, as the nerfs targeting three key Rogue cards as well as Archivist Elysiana are now live.
      Patch 14.2.2. has been released and nerfs to the following cards have been applied: EVIL Miscreant's health dropped to 4 (down from 5), Raiding Party costs 4 mana (up from 3), Preparation will reduce the cost of the next spell you cast this turn by 2 (down from 3) and Archivist Elysiana costs 9 mana (up from 8).
      With Rogue losing quite a bit of its power, the meta is definitely going to be affected with Warrior and Mage probably gaining even more of an edge (and they are already doing really well):
      Blizzard Entertainment
      After evaluating game data and working through internal and external feedback on the most popular decks currently in the meta, we’re looking to address the power level and overall pervasiveness of Rogue decks, alongside a specific interaction with Archivist Elysiana.
      Card Changes:
      Rogue EVIL Miscreant - Now has 4 Health. (Down from 5) Raiding party - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Preparation - Now read: The next spell you cast this turn costs (2) less. Neutral: Archivist Elysian - Now costs 9 mana. (Up from 8 ) As with previous card changes, once these changes are live, players will be able to disenchant the updated cards for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks.

      There's some unprecedented changes coming to Hearthstone with the Rise of the Mech update on June 3rd, and we're getting the first card buffs ever to happen in the game! There's also a free legendary for logging in during the event, but the big news are the buffs to 18 cards from the Boomsday Project, 2 from each class.

      Most of these weren't really played, and with the buffs it seems Pogo-Hopper and Security Rover look worrisome, maybe too good. Dr. Boom Mad Genius was already a card people were complaining about being OP, and it's going to be even better now with all these buffs.
      But let's take a look at the exact details:
      Behold the Rise of the Mech (source)
      Blastmaster Boom is headed back to the drawing board to upgrade his arsenal and perfect some of his pet projects. Check out what’s coming to the Tavern during the Rise of the Mech event, including a brand new Legendary Mech, SN1P-SN4P!
       

      Behold Your New Mechanical Overlord!
      Log in to the Rise of the Mech event by anytime between June 3 and July 1 and earn a golden copy of the new neutral Legendary Mech, SN1P-SN4P! Crash this clawed clunker into another Mech to build a behemoth of a bot, then do it again!

      Missed the event? You can craft a normal SN1P-SN4P for the usual cost of 1600 Dust.
      Important Note: SN1P-SN4P will be considered part of the The Boomsday Project and will rotate with that set. Note, however that SN1P-SN4P will not drop from The Boomsday Project card packs. Golden SN1P-SN4P will only be obtainable as part of the Rise of the Mech event, and the normal SN1P-SN4P can only be crafted with dust.  

      Card Changes:
      The twisted tinkerer Blastmaster Boom has been busy in the lab cooking up buffs to cards from every class! These changes are permanent, and the cards will keep their updated stats after The Boomsday Project rotates out of Standard next year. For some context and insight into why we’re updating these cards, here’s a comment from the design team:
      For this update, we decided to take two cards from The Boomsday Project from each class and give them a slight power boost. We think all the cards we chose can lead to fun and interesting experiences, and our aim for these changes is to encourage you to think differently about how you’re currently building decks. We’re hoping that some of these cards will see consistent play in the current rotation, and even inspire completely new decks without having a lasting negative impact on their respective classes. If the goal of a balance update is to address metagame outliers, then the goal of something like the Rise of the Mech update is to inspire some fun, new ideas. We look forward to hearing your feedback!

      Fully updated each week after the release of each chapter!
      With the Adventure having launched last week with two chapters available and the third chapter to be released this week, we figured it's the right time to showcase our brand new Dalaran Heist guide.
      With the Adventure not being released fully, the guide is obviously a work-in-progress. For now, you can see some pretty solid information on the first two chapters, as well as general info on the Dalaran Heist itself.
      For example, you can find which bosses you can face at each level and a full list of all available treasures and card buckets per class.
      We'll keep updating our guide and we'll be sure to let you know when it's complete.
