Infinite Kronx'

Hey, this is my theorycraft for Galakrond Rogue, going for the "infinite Kronx'" strategy. Below is a breakdown of the various cores I decided to go with, any suggestions are welcome :)

1) Galakrond

Praise Galakrond! / Seal Fate / Devoted Maniac / Shield of Galakrond

I think it's important to run every invoke card, as there are so few. There is no Umbral Skulker in the deck, she seems to slow and the coins honestly won't be very effective in the grand scheme of things.

The strategy is Kronx DragonhoofTogwaggle's Scheme to create an "infinite" amount of Kronx'.

2) Deathrattle

Necrium Apothecary is a semi-draw engine, and it's very flexible since it copies the Deathrattles in draws. Which means draw with Bloodmage Thalnos, more Waxadred candles or healing from Rotten Applebaum. Normally I would run Khartut Defender over the latter but Applebaum has some advantages: it's on curve, so drawing it on 4, playing on 5 is a good play. It heals slightly more (4 instead of 3, the Reborn isn't copied by Apothecary), it also deals more damage which can be useful against opposing combo decks, and lastly, it allows me to Flik opposing Defenders without hurting myself.

3) Balance

Bloodsail Flybooter is a combo enabler, and a 1 drop that can contest the board early on against Aggro. Having multiple small minions makes Praise Galakrond! easier to use. Waxadred is just a solid midrange minion that provides good board challenges. EVIL Miscreant gives more Lackeys, which is always useful. Shiv draws and is a small removal card. And Flik Skyshiv is excellent removal, and can be combo'd with Shadowstep for amazing value.

Both Galakrond, the Nightmare and Heistbaron Togwaggle have the ability to draw multiple 0 mana cards so we can cycle pretty fast. It's just a bit on the slower side to get started.

    I'm surprised that you don't have Stowaway in this deck given all your shuffles. Also, I found that Waxadred is sometimes too slow for the incredibly fast decks like Token Druid or Zoolock, so some teching may be required.

    I like the idea of flooding your deck with Kronx Dragonhoof as it can be so strong in late game, even mid-game, so I wanted to give the deck a try.

    I tried the deck for many games and found it too slow to be resistant enough against aggro.

    Waxadred and Necrium Apothecary are way too slow IMO, and opponent can too quickly take control of the board.

    I got rid of Devoted Maniac which I find too expensive and has little impact on board for its cost.
    I also don't like Bloodsail Flybooter so much

    So I tried replacing those (including Rotten Applebaum and Bloodmage Thalnos as they became irrelevant) with :

    Pretty happy with results so far but still a bit weak against actual most favored DD deck, ... Galakrond's battlecry Shaman.
    Maybe I could go -1x Scheme and add Zilliax, as suggested below ...

    Thanks for sharing anyway !

    Stowaway is a must in any shuffle deck.

      Yeah, so much people are underestimating this card.

      This is basically Elven Minstrel of shuffle decks.

      It's pretty expensive and useless on its own (without shuffling cards in the deck), but it can be run I suppose ;)

    I would go

    - 1x Scheme, -1x Umbral Skulker

    +1 Zilliax, 1x Spirit of the Shark
