Is the primodial drake a pivotal part of the deck?
ive tried playing this deck with Sudden Genisis instead of the 2nd primal dragon, so far its working pretty well.
you need the curator. It draws a drake and direhorn and hastaunt
i personally like tar lord as a trump card vs. quest rogues
This hepls to me now :
Replacement for The Curator?
Love this deck. Only issue. I'm not to fond of Acolyte of Pain. Granted only one of him and I'm normally able to get 2 draw cards out of him. But often than not he is just sitting in my hand. Don't like that. Anyone have any suggestions on if I should even replace him with another draw card, spell or minion. And if so what cards might be a could switch? When I do use him I do like his synergies with Ravaging Ghoul and Sleep With the Fishes late game. haha.Thank you. Any advice welcomed.
Also. I'm having issues with that darn Quest Rogue. cant stand that deck. Only reason I cant get past rank 11 at the moment. Since playing this deck and others like it (plus or minus a few cards) I have a 64% Win Rate. I'm positive or tied with all class as far as win/lose. But that Rogue quest. Have a 14% Win Rate vs them. Even when I mulligan and Dirty Rat them. Doesn't help! So frustrating. haha. I've read this type of deck counters Quest Rogue. Man if so I have terrible luck versus them.If anyone could offer some advice on how to hand them please I'm open. Other than what I'm doing I just hope their cards they need are at bottom of deck or my Dirty Rat does his thing :/
Play pirate warrior vs quest rogue. piece of cake.
rank 11 is like top 20%
I saw Deathwing version but i liked this one. So is it possible to put Deathwing instead 1 Primordial Drake?
Sure, it's pretty effective against The Caverns Below
I wanna be legend at least once but i can't never win vs. quest rogues... Any tips?????
First of all, forget your quest and mulligan for Dirty Rat and Fiery War Axe. You can safely play Rat at any given time, as Rogue needs battlecries and pulling minions doesn't count for quest counter.
Apart from that, keep your shit cool and taunt as much as possble. Keep AoE (especially Sleep with the Fishes) for the late game, while using Whirlwind and Ravaging Ghoul early on to remove 1/1s. Unless you're facing a lucky fucker with a lot of 1-drop Elementals, you'll be fine.
Remember - use Armorsmiths/Bloodhooves to eat up initial swarms of 5/5s, after that Primordial Drake into Sleep with the Fishes, keep the board clear, disrupt quest with Dirty Rat, push face when possible.
I am a returning player (haven't played in 3 years) so I don't have a lot of cards. I use a modified version of this and I have 4w -1l against quest rogues so far. This deck got me from rank 22 to 15 in a couple of days (and I don't play a lot, I have a 16-month-old). I don't have Sleep with the Fishes and one Primordial Drake. I'm just keeping taunts, up, don't start the quest till I have many low mana taunts to put up, and Dirty Rat, Whirlwind, and Ravaging Ghoul helps with destroying the low-cost minions that could potentially be shadowstepped.
I'm slowly gathering more dust to complete the deck.
Nice! Thanks! But i am gonna put in a eater of secrets in my deck vs. quest mages to remove their ice block secret! Think i will add in deathwing too.
Good and valid points. I'm considering swapping 1x Primordial Drake with Deathwing. I'm not sure about Secret Eater, as it's relatiely easy to pop Ice Block and normally you don't die. That being said, I've had a game vs a quest mage (I tilted HARD), where the guy put both Blocks from his deck into play, and got three more from discovered/rng spells. I still cringe...
As for the quest rogues, just mulligan your quest away and play the game. You're wasting your first turn and completing the quest isn't worth it in the match up. I used to lose a lot to quest rogues, started dropping the quest and it works wonders. Also - Rat Rat Rat. Most rogue minions are meak 1/1s anyway, but you might pull a Gadgetzan Ferryman or Youthful Brewmaster, which is great.
Okey. Maybe i will remove eater of secrets later if i see i get no use of it. I am rank 11 right now but i think i will not reach legend this month. 10 days left of this season... better luck next season. I started playing only taunt warrior on standard seriously the last few days...
And i have met 2 rogues in a row. Tried to get the rat but never got it..... One i lost to but the other one i won over somehow without the dirty rat..
Man I do all that plus some. That Quest Rogue is something else.
I don't quite agree with "Forget your Quest" part. Keep the quest in your starting hand. It's the only thing you can play at 1st turn anyway. But other is pretty much yeah
