Check out this video of the deck in play I made!

 

 

My feedback:

 

Mulligan: perfect.

 

Turn 1, I think playing Elven Archer on an empty board like that is not optimal. I'd have saved it.

 

Turn 2, you didn't use your Hero Power (an oversight, I imagine). I'd have equipped the Hero Power weapon and ended turn (not attacking with it).

 

Turn 3 was probably fine. There were a few different options there, but I think this one you did was certainly solid (it gave you the most board presence).

 

Turn 4, I agree again. The alternative was to equip a Hero Power weapon and Deadly Poison the minion down, but I feel getting the Yeti out was more important than saving a 2/1.

 

Turn 5, going for damage is certainly an option, though I personally wouldn't have done it, but that's just preference. My play would have been to save the Deadly Poisons and just use a Hero Power to take out the 1/1 totem.

 

Turn 6 I believe was a misplay. I would have put the 3/1 into the Flametongue Totem, taken out the Questing Adventurer with the weapon, and played the Boulderfist Ogre. Taking 5 damage to the face as a Rogue is totally not a problem, especially against a clear board and when you're sitting at 30 health. Putting the Ogre out is very powerful, and if the guy couldn't deal with your Yeti, chances are he wouldn't have had an answer for the Ogre either.

 

Even so, you ended up winning and I don't think these were necessarily wrong decisions (except for the turn 2 ending with full mana and no Hero Power). Good job!

 

This deck is pretty good, managed to complete the daily 5wins/1loss. 

 

That's great to hear.

Hello.  I am only moderately experienced in hearthstone (121 total wins), but I was suprised to see that the basic deck did not use Kobold Geomancer.  I think the card vastly improves the effectiveness of Fan of Knives, along with slighty boosting backstab, making at least 1 worthwhile to add to the deck.  While Azure Drake would be a better option, kobold is not a bad card for 2 mana due to its boost to spell damage.

There's nothing stopping you from adding it, and if it works out for you, all the better. But "objectively" speaking, Kobold Geomancer isn't a very strong minion (2/2 for 2 is pretty poor). The spell damage is not very useful in this deck, since it contains only the two spells you mentioned. If it had Eviscerate, Blade Flurry, and so on, then it might be more efficient. Still, it's not terrible and like I said, you can use if it you like it and it works for you.

Tbh This deck is good only in practice or ranked mode below level 18. Useless again late game deck. Too much low cards and no way to counter high value cards. I recommend for early beginner only . Change deck as soon as you get good cards

It's a Basic deck, so you're absolutely right. It's not really meant for competitive play, certainly not in any serious way below rank ~18.

Rogue, is a assasin, and nee card´s that is "FIT" for an assasin. Wich Means somthing that can KILL ( attack ), but there is NO ATTACK WITH OUT DEFENCE, and looking at te hand her, there is NOT much defence.You are VERY Lucky to win that fight, I belive as this will NOT hold 5 min. efter level 10. I try your hand  ( at level 8 - 9 and 10 )just for FUN, and got kill with in ONLY 2 min.LOL.

 Sadly  with this game, is that YOU CAN NOT CHOOSE, ow the card´s com´s out. In 1 game, I got a fin hand ( first low rank card´s, and then slowly stronger ) but then in the NeXT game I giot HIGH cards´s. I even tru t replay´s the Cards a few times, but that ditten help much. You can give your "HERO" a few low card´s, like a few TAUNT ( level 1 and 2 in stons ) that can be play, and have a fin game with that, also with and at level 3 - 4 - 5 and 6.and have a fin game. How ever, you need to thing more then taunt in our hand, so a few fighter´s that can attack right away. But in the NeXT round, you may notes that you get a HIGH CARD HAND ( with 3 - 4 ore even more ) levels. Replay´s then may ( ore may not ) help, but you can´t be sure, that that I dont like with this game. My deck is OK, I win most of my game ( 3 out of 5 ) but runnin in to this problem with the diffent card´s in every rund, is hard to understand. Therefor I find that is not to good, to have all to many high Cards in your hnd, but you will not get very fare in to the game, with out them and unlucky enough you can have a few habd with then first. It ( at sompoint ) P*** me off that Icant control, wich Card I will to be lay first, ore at som point, set the hand up so you ( and me ) can be sureyou will have a few low rank Card with in the first rounds.

I DO NOT LIKE YOUR HAND, not ven at level 8, so just for my bluu eyes I hre give the rest of you my hand, wich I ( as I say befor ) win OK with.

 

 

Cards for Rogue ( Assasin ) at level 10 nd oer that ( at the momen I am level 22 with this hand, and I do OK with it ( ell compare to how te Cards com´s out )

(0) 1 x Back stab

(1) 1 x Cold Blood

(1) 1 x Deadly poisen

(1) 1 x Sinister strike

(1) 2 x elven Archer 

(2) 1 x betrayel ( YEAH, nice to have. Good Card. Maybe ou my like to have 2 of them, then you can try to take 2 of then and only 1 of the elven. )

(2) 2 x sap

(2) 1 x defies rinleader

(2) 1 x frostwolf grunt

(2) 1 x dire wolf alpha

(3) 1 x perdition blade

(3) 1 x novise engineer

(3) 1 x fan of knives

(3) 1 x Head crack ( the cool thing Aboud this Card, is that it coms back to your hand, wich Means that you can play it Again. YEAH! )

This is my hand and have been sins level 12. I win 3 out 5 play, so I think this is a FAIR HAND

Of course, it cannot compete at around levelt 10. This is a basic deck overall. If you want a high-level competitive rogue deck you might want to have a look at the legendary/epic decks.

Nice deck - i was able to finish daily quest with it. I just made a small tweak - replaced River Crocolisk with Bloodsail Raider. Stats are same, but Bloodsail Raider have nice bonus which is stacking verry well with weapon. It's realy suprise sometimes and may make oponent to do "big eyes" wink.png

 

I have few rogue cards which I'll be trying to mixin to this deck: Cold Blood, Defias Ringleader, Eviscerate and Headcrack. I just don't know what (or if it's worth) to replace ... maybe get rid of Elven Archer ?

 

Next thing is that I'm thinking to drop Sprint in a favor of Ravenholdt Assassin. Cost for 4 cards draw is way to high, and the draw will almost not guarantee that in turn 8 I'll be able to make 7 damage and still have valuable minion on board.

 

Have You any advises?

You should check low budget versions of rogue decks and you will see, which cards you should start introducing to your deck. Eviscerate and perhaps a Defias Ringleader would be a good start. Ravenholdt Assassin may seem appealing, however it will often get 1 attack off and die during your opponent's turn, while 4 cards you can get from sprint can often make a much bigger difference.

Hey, I just wanted to mention that at the bottom of the Basic Rogue Deck explination, you mention the only 2 rogue specific cards you leave out are Vanish and Sinister Strike, but I noticed Shiv is not included either.

You are right, we've fixed that. Thank you!

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.

      Two new cards from Rastakhan's Rumble were revealed in an official blog post detailing the story of the upcoming expansion.
      The first card revealed is a neutral Pirate:

      It's important to clarify that the Overkill effect triggers only on your turn (ie. when you attack and not when you are attacked) and this minion will draw you cards even if it dies as long as you Overkill something. Other than that, it feels slow for an aggro Pirate deck and its low Health means it can be killed easily. Perhaps it could make for a decent Arena card.
      The awesomely named second card of the day is Heavy Metal!

      Here is a spell with the Geosculptor Yip effect, at a reduced cost and minus the body. Interestingly enough, this card would have been better if it costed 5 or 7 mana since it would fit in Odd Warrior, a deck that heavily utilises armoring up. Even Warrior might become a thing in the future, but still with Yip never really having caught on, it's really hard to see this card fit into any Warrior deck.
      The blog post itself is interesting, since it gives an introduction to the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. We see Rikkar - the aspiring Troll champion, who is also the protagonist of the Rumble Run - entering the Gurubashi Arena and trying to pick which team he is going to side with. The Tigers - the Paladin team - are described as the returning champions of Rastakhan's Rumble. We are eager to see what's next for this expansion!

      The Hearthstone subreddit interviewed Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden on the upcoming Rastakhan's Rumble expansion.
      You can read the entire interview here.
      Interview Highlights
      Rastakhan's Rumble has been in development for almost a year, from January 2018. Spirits will be appearing in the Arena. We won't see much of old Keywords in Rastakhan's Rumble, but they are open to revisiting them (Hero and highlander cards, Inspire and C'Thun were mentioned). One of the design lessons Team 5 has learned is that they want more build-around cards that have cheap rarity (like the Spirits). With Rastakhan's Rumble, they wanted classes to feel like a team. Captain Hooktusk, the Rogue champion, is an original Hearthstone character. Pirates are mostly in Rogue in this expansion. They are still pretty aggressive, but there are some more expensive pirates in this set.

      The reveal season for Rastakhan's Rumble starts with a Paladin card.
      Every recent Hearthstone expansion has had its own series of funny blog posts and videos. Blizzard collaborated with Wronchi in The Boomsday Project and now they are back for Rastakhan's Rumble.
      Hearthstone's heroes are waiting in line to get tickets to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Everyone has the gold for it, except from poor (literally) Uther. He does get a card reveal though and the story will be continued from what was teased in the end.

      People have been comparing this card to Evasion and Ice Block. It certainly has it pros and cons. You can play it proactively, even at high health and you can combine it perfectly with a weapon swing or powerful healing spells. On the other hand, Time Out! requires more setting-up and better game knowledge of what cards your opponent might have on his/her hand. This card could potentially go into a Control Paladin deck, along with Shirvallah, the Tiger legendary Loa minion.
      What do you think?
