I love the description,
Why Astrid over a 3rd shadow shift or traitor?

Having more creatures that can use Archers Gambit/take care of Hive Defenders is generally nice. Especially since she also gives that extra mana contract that we can use to dump more cards on the board. You could go for a 3rd Traitor, but you'll need to make sure you can take care of the 2/1's it spawns and Shadow Shift is nice for utility, but spending a mana for cycle means less mana for actual creatures and the more you have the higher the chance you'll have to use 1 before turn 5, where in theory you should always be able to put more stuff on the board.

Astrid works great with gambit. Oh and thanks for this deck Matt I have been annoying legends players with it to great success.

To the tune of 23-7 so far today. It's almost silly how meta busting this deck is.

Sounds good :D
I dropped the gloom lurkers for sanc pets in my build. Seems that might occasionally be a problem with 2 drops, but the pets give the lethal as well, and help slowing the opponent when you need it. Shackle vs. rehiding a creature is better no?

Well, you said it yourself even now I've had multiple games where I actually blank on turn 2 and when you blank on turn 2 with a deck this agro, you generally just lose the game. Pets are pretty nice though, they basically grant the same protection and gives you another target for Archers Gambit, but the Gambit isn't 100% just for Lethals. You can also use it on Skulk/Cutpurse, but preferably Skulk, to dodge an enemy and then hit your opponent in the face to get an extra Pilfer. Getting Skulk > Gambit > Double 0's > Skirmisher is a loooooooooooooooooooooot of pushing power!

Are the Deepwood Trappers way better than Cutpurse? using x1 Trapper and x2 Cutpurse atm (would use 3 if i had), wondering how much you value them before crafting =)

They've been pretty awesome so far, having another 1 mana means we take control of the field lane more often and it's great at protecting the Gobbo's. Especially since when your opponent atks into the trapper, he spent a turn atking into it, needs to w8 a turn for it to wear off, and then finally gets to use that creature again, whilst the stuff the Trapper was protecting goes ham! Though since they're not used in a lot of diffirent decks, if you don't own to many yet, it's prolly fine to persue other cards
This deck is just incredible :P Started legends like a week ago, cant afford anything else, and got up to R1 with this. Thanks so much Matt for sharing this deck!
sadly this deck doesn't work any more with the current rank 1 meta... got 33% winrate (only 4 out of 12). Maybe I was particularly unlucky, faced 5 control mages and 3 control monks :(

Then this decks job is done, it was meant to climb in Midrange+Ramp meta and now the meta is shifting to deal with proper agro :D
Still works great for me in dumpster legend ranks. Archers gambit goes a long way to winning matches we normally would lose.

Hell, I ended the stream at Rank #9 today, seems pretty good

maybe I was in a "bubble" meta when I played, or just was unlucky with the matchmaking, 12 games is not a huge amount either. And it seems obvious to point this out, but my skill is not yours :P

I made it to Legend though, but with Prophecy Battlemage

Oh nice, hitting legend is definately no small feet and meta pockets 100% exist, hell, I'm prolly in 1 right now as well
