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.

Your description of the Fal'dorei Strider card says that it shuffles 3xNerubian Ambush! into your deck (which would be pretty awful). It is in fact 3xSpider Ambush!

 

I just opened a Fal'dorei Strider and this had me mighty confused until I tested it.

Thanks for letting us know! I replaced the mentions of Ambush! with Spider Ambush!. The change should go live soon.

      The Season of Rastakhan has begun and today we have the first round of the Brawl of the Champions.
      As already explained, the Rumble Run is being brought into the Tavern Brawl and you can play one of the special Rumble Run decks against real opponents. Each class has three different Shrines, that promote different playstyles and are accompanied by premade decks that synergise with their respective Shrine.
      Here are the Shrines for this week:
      Druid: Bonds of Balance - At the end of your turn, gain Attack equal to your hero's Attack Hunter: Halazzi's Guise - Whenever you summon a Beast, it gains Rush, Taunt, or Poisonous. Mage: Jan'alai's Flame - Your Hero Power costs (O). Whenever it kills a minion, refresh it. Paladin: Shirvallah's Grace - After you cast a spell on a friendly minion, cast a copy of it on this one. Priest: Bwonsamdi's Tome - After you cast a spell, add a random Priest spell to your hand. Rogue: Bottled Terror - Your other minions have Stealth. Deathrattle: Give your minions +2 Attack. Shaman: Krag'wa's Grace - Your spells cost (2) less. Warlock: Blood Pact - Your spells cost Health instead of Mana. Warrior: Akali's Horn - Your minions have "Overkill: This can attack again". Unsurprisingly, the Shrines that are good in the Rumble Run are also effective versus actual opponents. This bunch of Shrines is quite decent, with the Priest and Mage ones being standouts. The weakest classes for this week are Warlock, Warrior and Hunter.
      The Brawl of the Champions itself, like all Tavern Brawls, rewards a Classic card pack upon victory. However, you can complete the seasonal repeatable quest by playing the Brawl 3 times to earn a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack.

      Joseph Magdalena is here to talk about the Season of Rastakhan event, which will begin on February 13.
      As we already know, this event will start in a couple of days and it will last until March 3. It's all about the Tavern Brawl mode during the three-week Season of Rastakhan as each week you will get a special quest to play 3 Tavern Brawls; the quest will award a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack.
      The Tavern Brawl will be the same each week and it's called the Brawl of Champions. Remember the Rumble Run? Well, now you will get to play against real opponents as one of the heroes of the Rumble Run, along with their special Shrine and complimentary deck. Since each class has 3 different Shrines in the Rumble Run, the Shrines for each class will be different each week and you will be able to swap classes if you choose so.

      Due to Update 13.2 going live a few hours later than intended, the Lunar New Year event will last one more day.
      The event will now finish on February 13 in the US and February 14 in Europe. Therefore, everyone will get an extra quest that awards both Gold and Arcane Dust! Don't forget that the day the Lunar Festival concludes, a new Tavern Brawl-centered event will begin: the Season of Rastakhan.

      Hey everyone!
      Due to the delays we hit yesterday with recent update pushing into the time for the Lunar New Year event, we are going to be extending the end date by a full day. The event will now last until February 13.
      Cheers and thanks again for your patience!

      After a small delay, the latest Hearthstone update is here bringing changes to five cards and the Lunar Festival seasonal event. After the Lunar Festival, there will be a new event, the Season of Rastakhan, with thematic Tavern Brawls and special rewards.
      Some juicy card changes have been implemented with this update. Cold Blood, Flametongue Totem, Hunter's Mark and Emerald Spellstone have had their mana cost increased by 1, while Equality will now cost 4 mana (up from 2).
      With this patch, the Lunar New Year event is now available for a week. Starting from today and until February 12, you can login to get a free Golden Fireworks Tech and enjoy quests that award both Gold and Arcane Dust. The Lunar New Year Bundle is also available in the Shop for $20 or 20 euros; it contains 30 packs in total, 10 from each of the Year of the Raven expansions.
      Right after the Lunar Festival, a new event will start: the Season of Rastakhan will last from February 13 up to March 3. This event is focused on the Tavern Brawl mode, with three different Brawls centered around picking a Rumble Champion and a Loa shrine. Moreover, during that period each Wednesday you will get a special repeatable quest to play 3 Tavern Brawls. The reward for this quest is a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack, so in total you will get three packs.
      Two new card backs have been added: Mark of Hakkar and Kul Tiras (the March 2019 Ranked Play Season card back). There's a dedicated blog post about the Mark of Hakkar card back, which can be acquired if you play against another player who has it. Αnd how do you originally get it? Well, it seems some players have been randomly selected and already have it in their collection and it's their job to spread the madness...
      You can check out the card backs in the patch notes below:
