There is a typo in the description for Ogre Ninja, it read 6-mana for a 5/5, but it's a 5-mana for a 6/6.

There is a typo in the description for Ogre Ninja, it read 6-mana for a 5/5, but it's a 5-mana for a 6/6. 

Just to clarify, he means the Arena section here:

In Arena, Ogre Ninja is a good choice. Stats are the most important thing in Arena when evaluating a card, so this card as a 6 Mana 5/5 is very strong. While the drawback will cost you in some situations, usually attacking anything with such a large minion will provide an acceptable outcome.

"Shadowstep can be an efficient finisher when used with Leeroy Jenkins."

 

While technically true -- 12 damage for 10 mana is not a bad deal -- it is, of course, not the highly viable combo play it once was. I think this should be updated.

While I'm sure its not the best rogue card, it is the only card in game that can give you permanent stealth. Conceal will only hide your minions for 1 turn, so using this with cards like Emperor Tharussian can give your enemy a headache.

Hey Sottle, there seems to be a misunderstanding in the description for the card "Beneath the Grounds"

 

It says in the general description that "It should be noted that the Ambush cards do not block your opponent's draw, and they will draw another card on the same turn that they draw it." So if they draw the ambush, they draw another card right?

 

But it also says the card would not work well in a mill rogue deck because "it is actually counterproductive to the theme of the deck, since it extends the size of your opponent's deck" But if they draw another card after they draw the ambush, the size of their deck has not actually been increased has it?

 

So by making the opponent draw more cards Mill Rogue speeds up the effect of Beneath The Grounds, and if the card doesnt actually increase the opponent's deck size I think Beneath the Grounds is actually a good pick for mill rogue.

 

(Also how does one link card images?)

The part you're missing out is that the goal with Mill Rogue is often to burn cards off the top of your opponent's deck while they have a full hand. If you burn an Ambush, you don't get the 4/4, they don't get the redraw, and all you've done is made it harder for you to fatigue them.

Ethereal Peddler's images still have the old text and the description uses the same "from other classes" wording the old text had. It will be very important in evaluating the card's effect to change it for "non-Rogue Class cards" as it will definitely be strong to anyone acquiring this card while not being a Rogue themselves(except Warlock through Renounce Darkness)

 

EDIT: You might also want to change the Arena section of Goblin Auto-Barber and Undercity Valiant to take into account that they aren't available to be drafted.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.

      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
