    What’s a good replacement for Brightwing? I don’t want to craft it, I also don’t have Face Collector

    Isn’t face colector a better option than brightwing?

      Debatable. Same mana cost but the extra point of attack is fairly important as it can trade into some 4 drops. It’s slightly less of a tempo loss.

      On some occasions you can get multiple FC’s down but this doesn’t happen that often. Probably only Control Warrior which is already almost an auto win if you play it right. Brightwing is better against hunter etc.

      Face collector is also pretty niche card whereas Brightwing can go into multiple decks.

    why togwaggle’s scheme?

      Tech against control warrior – makes that matchup almost 100% win. Togwaggle on Tess, and then play huge boards turn after turn.

      Against agro you can use it on Zilliax for extra healing.

      It’s not essential but it’s definitely worth having if you’re coming up against a lot of control.

    Interesting decision to swap 2x Pilfers for 2x Jar Dealers. I think it works. Not only can the one drops help with the quest but also provide a guaranteed 1 mana card for Miscreant’s/Edwin.

    Main issue with the rogue quest is the early loss in tempo for a tempo class. 4 one drops help mitigate this somewhat.

    I’ve found the best way to play this deck is to get stats on the board early and often whilst slowly completing the quest. Then in the mid to late game you can control the board and setting up for a big Tess to close it out.

    Played 3 and won 3 with the new Jar Dealers at rank 4, two of which were against Highlander Hunter. Deck seems legit.

    Quest Rogue is easily my favourite deck of the expansion. So many ridiculous games – getting Shudderwock off a Shaman is hilarious.

    I’m quite surprised to see Pilfer in this list however, it seems a lot worse now with the quest as you can’t go t1- pilfer t2- Underbelly Fence (unless you have the coin). How have you found it?

    I’ve also been considering dropping one or both Underbelly’s, they never seem to have much of an impact. Considering adding snip-snap as an awkward 3 drop for the opponent to deal with whilst you try and complete the quest.

      J says Pilfer’s are not good, but they are good enough to give the deck the burgle card density it needs. Other upsides are Combo activation and that they are fast (compared to pick pocket). According to stats you should never! keep them in your opening hand. I don’t play the deck (don’t have quest + randomness + weak to aggro + nerfs waiting room) but watching him wreck warriors with it is the real fun for me 😀
