As a player who hasn't played since the days of 2 mana unleash the hounds, I don't have much dust to craft with. However, I have made three card swaps, one that makes the deck much cheaper, but a little less effective;

Bloodmage Thalnos ---------> Loot Hoarder

This swap makes for losing that spell damage, which makes me sad, but the card draw is still there, and for newer players who would rather spend 1600 dust on on one of the bigger, flashier legendaries like Rag or Ysera, it's much more cost-effective. On another note, Its extra attack allows it to make a trade up every now and again.

The other two swaps are as follows;

2 x Moonfire ---------> 2 x Naturalize

This seemed obvious to me. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but taking Moonfire for 1 puny damage point seems pretty wasteful to me. While Naturalize does give them two cards to have, if you are playing this deck correctly, you will usually get a card for this, and since you have SO many spells at your disposal, this is used for taking out a big threat to your minions that can't be removed from pure damage easily, such as a Kel'Thuzad behind taunts or a buffed Druid of the Claw. And every now and again, you can piss your opponent off by making them burn cards!

Please give me some feedback on what you all think, I get about two thirds win rate, I'm currently rank 11.

P.S. Sorry I didn't link the actual cards, I'm not to familiar with how to do it :(

I don't like Naturalise in this deck, or most decks to be fair. Part of the advantage of a Gadgetzan deck is to be able to cycle through your own deck quicker than your opponent, if you hand that advantage back to your opponent with Naturalize, then you're taking away some of the strength of the deck. 

 

There's also the 0 Mana vs 1 Mana consideration, With a 0 Mana card, you have access to stupid stuff like Turn 4 Teacher, Moonfire, Innervate, Power of the Wild. If you cut the card for a 1 Mana cost, then you're slowing everything down for a turn. The effect of the card isn't really the important thing, it's the fact that it costs 0.

 

Loot Hoarder for Thalnos is totally sensible though, and not having Thalnos does weaken Moonfire a little.

      Dave Kosak is here in the latest Hearthside Chat video to talk about the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. He also revealed two Priest cards: the Loa of Death, Bwonsamdi, and his Spirit!
      If you haven't played Battle for Azeroth, the latest WoW expansion, then this video is going to be helpful in understanding the backstory of Rastakhan's Rumble:
      The two Priest cards revealed in the video synergise very well with each other:

      As Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden mentioned in their r/Hearthstone interview, Spirits are meant to be build-around cards and this is pretty apparent with Spirit of the Dead. Apart from the obvious synergy with Bwonsamdi, the Priest Spirit can work wonders in a Clone Priest deck along with Zerek's Cloning Gallery. Spirit of the Dead can also find a spot in other archetypes like Resurrect, Big and Deathrattle Priest. The card itself is quite slow and requires some setting-up, but it looks very versatile.

      Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death, can be used simiply to draw Spirit of the Dead, then you can kill him while the Spirit is up and shuffle him back to your deck. It's easy to see the Spirit work without Bwonsamdi, but the opposite - Bwonsamdi working without his Spirit - looks like a slim possibility. Given that all Class cards in this expansion are designed to work as a "team", we might see a card (apart from the Spirit) that can make Bwonsamdi more viable. Otherwise, the Hunter Quest never really caught on, so why would it work in a traditionally anti-aggro class like Priest?

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week and the rules are simple: both players get to have two turns, instead of one.
      This starts from the very beginning of the game, therefore giving a big advantage to Player 1. Don't be surprised if your opponent concedes when he/she finds out that he/she has to go second (or if you have to do it)!
      Doomsayer is a must-have on this Tavern Brawl, since it clears the board immediately. Flappy Bird is also a useful card and Aggro decks are generally favoured. OTK decks also can work great since you have two turns to set up your... one-turn kill. You can also experiment with Open the Waygate and Temporus; both cards work and they give you a third turn!

      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.
