Just built it. I won 6 out 7 games played with this. I lost to a Paladin in first match. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Hello man. I'm Master 1, farming to enhance my deck to up 3 xD.

I have some ideas about that list:

Lighting Bolt is too good to have just 1.

Same for Lighting Storm.

You can use better 2 manas drops then Novice Engineer (even a totem)

Windspeaker is not good... I use a Windfury spell in my deck (just one) couse i havent a good legendary to end the game, windfury wins lot of game... 2 cost is better then 4.

Stormwind champion is not so good for 6 manas. You need a full board to make him effective. Argent Comander can be a solid change.

2 Bloodlust is good only in rushmode deck. 1 is enogh.

Thanks for feedback. I definitely like some of your advice. I'm going to try out some of it. The only things I think I might disagree on are the novice engs and bloodlust. I feel like the novices add needed draw power and bloodlust is just an amazing card especially since lack a big thumper . I'd definitely like to see your thoughts on this instead. Here are my revised deck:

So far I have about a 70% win rate in roughly 40-50 games.

Made it to 1 Star Master so far with this deck above. 48-11 record which is an 83% win percentage. I'm giving some thought to adding in an ooze and maybe an earth shock for some added versatility. My deck does appear to have some trouble with rogues as I am 0-4 against them. ANyone have any advice?

So far this deck is fast and packs a quick punch.

Lightning Bolt × 2
Rockbiter Weapon × 2

TBH, not sure if you need 2 Defender of Argus- Taunt Overkill--- IMO I would swap out those for Azure Drakes, drop the engineers so you can play totems early, throw in an earth shock and Bloodmage Thalanos- keep one BL but lose the other and one Lava Burst. GL my friend!
