thanks keavan. i'm still play testing around. i loved drakkon's solo darkclaw back in the day but since his ability changed i wanted to try to bring that back a bit with moonstalker. I edited the deck a bit more but like you said against a good player they'll nurf the biggest threat and go from there. I usually play serena and when i play test against myself or other rogues, which are very heavy in my current meta, (300 rating) i find that they just stop thief the ascendant and then i'm fairly screwed. not as bad against serena but lance because of aeon. but like you said trying to cut it down is a pain. i managed to get it to 44 as well but am still trying to fine tune it. the problem is i know i should have shriek or lln or acid jet but i'm not sure what to cut for them.
