I wanna try this deck,

This deck looks awful lot like an arena deck. SpellshifterTuskarr Fisherman and Ancient Mage look awkward.

I know you guys probably tried this deck before you posted it here, but a better way to go for is to probably add tech cards like The Black Knight and Skulking Geist (until Dark Pact is nerfed at least). Primordial Drake can really help against all those paladins. Make it a control-ish deck. Also, Vanish might be a nice addition as some form of board clear.

Hi,

I certainly agree about the deck looking very much like an Arena deck.  I would argue most Odd/Even decks look that way due to the card restrictions and recent standard rotation greatly restricting the card choices available.

The deck itself is tried and tested and I understand your concern.  To address your concerns, The Black Knight does not fit into the style of the deck.  As it is a deck reliant on tempo, Sap does the job much better and if you want an additional way to push past Taunts then Spellbreaker is a better choice due to being able to push past a Voidlord.  As an Even deck, you want to be able to end the game by around turn 9, this in itself invalidates Primordial Drake as you will be positioning yourself to to end the game by the time it is playable.  However, Skulking Geist certainly work, although it is a bit slow. 

Despite being 6 weeks into the expansion, this deck is very new on the scene and as a result it is still very rough around the edges (think back to how Odd/Even Paladin decks first looked).  This deck is positioned to grow over time as more people try it and experiment with it.  So my advice for you right now would be to experiment with it!  Maybe you will find something everyone else has missed or you may simply develop a better understanding of why certain cards do not work.

I recommend at least giving it a try to at least get a feel for it and I wish you luck.

I assume you don't mean that you should never play AE but that you shouldn't play AE until you draw Auctioneer. Can you explain why? I thought one of the win conditions of AE Rogue is to get something like Prep -> AE and then play high cost cards in the early turns to win the game.

AE into an early high-Cost card is certainly a way to steal wins, but not a reliable one. Even though the majority of cards you shuffle will have a base Cost greater than 1, it does not mean they will be good 1-Mana players and you will often still want to play card that were in your own deck instead and diluting your deck with Mediocre 1-Mana cards will often cause you to stall. AE can get out of control when you can go for huge tempo plays by playing multiple 1-Mana cards in a single turn, but to do that you need help from your draw tools like Gadgetzan Auctioneer.

      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.

      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!
