It's pointed out in the detailed description that you can draft it higher if you have a strong mech deck, but in isolation it's a just a 3 Mana 2/2, which is really weak.

Dread Corsair in rogue is on average as good as Ironfur Grizzly and sometimes it is better.  Having used it a fair amount i'd rank it a few ranks higher (as good as Ironfur maybe?).  Not amazing but not a disaster pick like this guide suggests.

All Giants are missing.

SI:7 agent is missing.

Recombulator is missing.

All ogres are missing.

Perdition's blade (!) is missing.

Headcrack is missing.

 

I am on my 6th card out of thirty. This guide is more incomplete than AC:unity.

I am suggesting you either having a sleep or visiting an optician.

Its because you have to click the tabs for "Rare Cards", "Epic Cards", etc. I didnt notice it at first either. You are only looking at the common cards spreadsheet ranking.

 

No optician visit necessary.

 

Cheers!

I'm loving arena!  And these spreadsheets are a big reason why. I mentioned in a post to the Mage arena guide that I started playing hearthstone back in March and was initially reluctant to play arena. I'm now wishing I had started arena earlier since I've been seeing good success and having a lot of fun in the process (although I'm sure the knowledge and experience I gained while playing Ranked Mode are contributing to my success). My second time using these spreadsheets I picked the Rogue and won 5 games. There is no greater feeling, in Hearthstone or investing in general, than seeing your hard-earned gold give you a great return!  I'm quick to admit that Rogue isn't one of my better characters, as I sometimes struggle to balance the card advantage potential of the hero power with the possibility of bringing my life total too low. Yet I still won 5 games!

 

Thank you, Sottle, for putting these together and keeping them updated. I imagine some of the negative comments can get tiresome, so please know that the spreadsheets are awesome and very useful. I'm making good use of them and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

I couldn't locate Pit Snake - thought I was pretty diligent checking all common card tiers, but may have missed it. Also couldn't find Huge Toad... perhaps the LoE cards aren't included yet.

No way Duskboar should be Tier 4. Compare to One-Eyed Cheat (currently listed at Tier 8, though I don't think Tier 7 would be unreasonable).

Reconsider position of anub' arak I have found the card to be nearly unbeatable as it gives you infinite value and you are likely to be ahead on board as rogue at all stages of the game

Why is Duskboar tiered as "Average" while One-eyed Cheat is "Terrible"? They are most of the times equivalent, with OEC being better under some circumstances...

I'm not sure, actually. I'll look into this and get it fixed.

      Blizzard's Lead Mission Designer, Dave Kosak, has released a video discussing how Missions will work in Knights of the Frozen Throne.
      Missions are the replacement for Adventures, which everyone will be able to attempt when the new set is released. The idea behind them is to be able to explain the lore behind the cards, without forcing people to do the content who are not interested in it.
      There is a lot of interesting information in the video, but the key takeaway is that there will be an alternate Paladin Hero, Arthas, awarded to anyone who can defeat the Lich King with all nine classes.
      At the end of the video, three more cards are revealed from the upcoming expansion:

      Bolvar is an interesting card in that it will be a 3/7 after it loses its own Divine Shield. This means that it will need to get very little value from its ability in order to be very large indeed. It does feel like a build-around card however, and it might be that Divine Shield Paladin is just not as powerful as current archetypes. There are already plenty of ways to build that style of deck, and none are seeing regular play. I am not sure that Bolvar, Fireblood improves the Divine Shield archetype enough to force it to the forefront.

      Light's Sorrow has some of the same issues that Bolvar has, although it needs to get very few activations over the course of its lifetime to be a playable weapon. I expect this to be tested heavily in the first few days of the new meta.

      Corpsetaker seems like a fun card. It should be easy enough to gain most of the keywords, which will make it a very difficult card to deal with. It should be noted that the keywords are only gained if those words are on the cards remaining in the deck. Depending on how easy it turns out to be to get every keyword onto the card, this could be a reasonable card in slower decks where the Taunt and Lifesteal are relevant.

      The twenty-third and twenty-fourth cards have been revealed. Both are Epic minions, one for Hunter and one for Druid.
      At seven Mana, Stitches Archer, or Abominable Bowman Archer has to compete with Volcanosaur for the slot. It also seems that Savannah Highmane does the same thing more reliably.

      (Source: Hearthpwn)
      That being said, there are plenty of Deathrattle options available for N'Zoth, the Corruptor to bring back in Hunter now, and if a slow enough deck can be made to work, this would be a great fit in such a deck.
      Fatespinner
      Fatespinner introduces a new mechanic, which should add an element of intrigue to the game. The lack of disguised information has been a complaint of many players since the dawn of Hearthstone. Fatespinner takes a first step into that world, and if successful as a mechanic, it should add a new layer of complexity and bluff to the game.

      As for the card itself, it has poor stats for its Mana cost, and seems to not have the greatest of effects. However, this is Druid we are talking about, and Druid having the ability to deal 3 damage to all minions, albeit slowly, should not be treated lightly. Sherazin, Corpse Flower was underrated by reviewers in the previous set, and is somewhat similar in that it was hard to assess how much value would be gained from its ability. I feel that this card might see play for the first Deathrattle ability, but more importantly, the very existence of a new secret mechanic should be good for the game as the design team explore it further.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.

      Bearshark and Hadronox were just revealed!
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bearshark

      Houndmaster should probably be renamed to Bearsharkmaster because it curves out just perfectly into an Elusive minion that's going to be difficult to remove. Since hunters don't use spells to buff their own minions, Elusive isn't actually going to be a downside. This seems like it'll make for a solid addition to any hunter deck.
      Hadronox

      The current rendition of Ramp druid runs 5 to 6 Taunt minions, but plays very greedy with cutting long-time staples of the class such as Druid of the Claw. Could this fit the deck? I don't know; Hadronox requires you to have drawn your few Taunters and played them, something Ramp doesn't always get to do by nature. Ramping this minion is actually pretty bad because its Deathrattle simply won't trigger then. Let's see if another Taunt minion ends up being printed for druid; otherwise, I can't say this card will be popular.
