    Its a fun aggro deck that people don't expect to face. Having most of your allies at 2cc means you will always have good starts and board control is deceptively good with Dead Mans breach. Buffed Feasterling or combination of any 2 allies and weapon can take care of most enemy threats. Late game Sword Gobbler that exiles a weapon has basic stats of a 3cc, but it is often buffed further to 4/4 or 5/4. Bladedancer is the star of the deck because he can cheat the meek restriction by transferring its attack to an ally that is able to attack the hero which is very important when you are closing the game. Just from Rothems ability each Bladedancer hastes 4 damage to enemy hero's face. Deck plays out by controlling early game with your allies and trying to get 2 or more of them out that are able to attack the hero, until enemy gets low enough on health you can otk them with Rothem's ability. There are couple of tech cards in here. Ascendant is really good vs Direct Damage especially against Zaladar since he can't one shot your 3hp allies. Its also amazing against stall deck, negating Evil Ascendant and Skervox poison. Meat Wagon/War Banner split is there to reduce dead draws of the deck as they do basically same thing. Nocturnal Advantage is there for stealth and ITF. It actually replaced Groundshift because of its negative synergy with the location. NA also deals with Gwen and stall Skervox. Biggest weaknesses of the deck are well timed Brax Soldier, in which case Logan with same deck can have an edge. Burn heavy mages are hard to beat as well unless you get your Ascendant of the Horde and Meat Wagon.

    Deck works on very low resources, 5 in average. Even at 4 with JD you can still play 3 allies each turn. Sword Gobbler is easy early sac, as well extra weapon copies, or any location or BF duplicates. I would often sac War Banner/Meat Wagon/Nocturnal Advantage/Enrage in favor of keeping the allies to swarm the board quickly unless its a crucial to have those for the given match. Common openings:

    T2 Feasterling or Karash
    T3 BF
    T4 JD + BS/2cc ally of choice + Location or Location + 2 2cc allies depending on board state.

    Also dont hesitate to use Rothems ability for controlling the board so you dont fall behind. With hasted allies and a weapon 5se pays of if you can retake by dealing with 3 enemy allies.

    I can vouch for the swarming, speed and surprise effect! I think I played against this yesterday with my big Boris. Well done.

    Nah, Logan will make this deck so much worse. Instead, I recommend tech'ing Groundshift :]

    Groundshift is good for Brax Soldier but it removes your location as well. You need to keep that in mind so you plan ahead by keeping spare location copies if you dont have enough power on the board.

    Really tempted to buy the March special deal and get Rothem as one of my picks. Does this deck have a chance at higher ratings?

    I started late this season but got to 286-ish in one day with relative ease. I would say deck can go above 300. Its a solid deck but considering its weakness vs Brax Soldier I would still put this under tier 2.

    Nice deck...
    Dragon Tooth can help if Brax becomes too popular (and he is in top decks).

    Ever thought about using Bazaar's draw ability instead of Bad Santa? It gives you less control over how many cards your opponent will draw, but maybe you should try it out for a faster rush.
