Hearthstone Cheap Rogue GvG

Novice Engineer seems to me like the weakest card in this deck... am I wrong ?

There's always going to be some less than perfect cards in a deck that is built to a budget, but Novice Engineer is really not that far off being good enough to play in full budget Rogue decks, Rogue is all about card efficiency, Combo mechanics, and Tempo. Novice helps with all three of those, since it replaces itself as a card, is a cheap card that can activate combo (an can immediately combo with the card you draw), and provides you with more options to maintain pressure.

This deck is working really well for me right now.  I don't track decks as well as I should but I'm pretty sure its a 70-80% winrate across both game modes.  

 

So yeah, thanks for all the work on cheap decks.  I had been a bit stuck on my usual druid, but this is flying :)

Hi there. A question i have is.. why is there no assasinate in here? To me its one of the best cards in rogue decks..

Yep, basically the idea of this deck is to keep on top of the opponent, you don't want to spend 5 Mana dealing with their creature, you'd rather spend 2 to Sap it, and then use the rest of the Mana to create more pressure. Rogue is all about Mana efficiency.

I really like this deck i only subbed the engineers with loot hoarders and the wolfrider with an arcane golem and i was able to take it all the way up to rank 5 if played correctly this can be a very scary deck to go up against despite how cheap it is

I enjoy this deck a lot, thank you Sottle ! I'm still a beginner and even with only 1 SI:7 Agent and 1 Blade Furry it's really effective. For the moment i'm playing with 1 Perdition's Blade until I have another Agent and it's not bad. I also use 1 Violet Teacher instead of Pilote Shredder and 2 Acid Swamp Ooze (really usefull againt face hunter) for saving some dust for a more advanced Oil Rogue.

What I miss the most is probably the second Blade Furry (replaced by a second Fan of Knives but well...).

Yeah, Perditions for an SI is a really smart swap.

Glad it's working for you.

This deck is my first stab at a crafted set and I want to say THANKS!  Up to now, I've been playing with basic cards and whatever I land from decks earned by completing quests.  

 

What I really enjoy about the build is I feel that I have a fighting chance against decks containing Epics and Legendaries.  A good deal of my losses have been due to my mistakes and not the opponents deck power. So, its a joy knowing that I can be a contender against powerful decks if I play my cards right.  Now, if only I can figure out how to survive a hunter rush deck...those are a killer for me at the moment.

 

Keep up the great work!

Backstab, Deadly Poison and Auto-Barber are all good. SI is good if you have The Coin, or Backstab already, Evis can be ok if you don't have a Backstab.

As for which cards to replace, take a look at some of our more full budget guides, and see which cards have changed in between them.

exactly why no healbots? Against rush it almost seems mandatory plus by the fact half the time you're forced to use face to clear.

Healbot is too slow, this deck is an aggressive Tempo deck that aims to have the initiative at all times, if you slow down to play a 5 mana 3/3, you're going to lose that initiative and ending up taking more than the 8 life you gained over the course of the game because of it.

Yeah, Bloodmage would be a great card in this deck, you can cut one Novice for it.

Hi, you say the cost is 1000 but even one Blade Flurry is 800. Am I missing something?

Try not crafting golden cards, and Blade Flurry suddenly becomes a 100 dust card :D

I wouldn't. Emperor is generally a card that's good for 1 of 2 purposes. Either for discounting a huge hand in Control decks, or for discounting specific combo pieces in a deck that is reliant on combos. This deck is neither of those things.

I have Arcane Golem is it stronger if I replace it with Wolf Rider? It gives mana crystal..Edit I played the deck and got rank 14 for the first time :) I like the weopon use and I have few questions. Why not second Shiv instead of Novice Engeneer it seems better to me and how can I include sinister strike I really like it and its great for combo? ty ;p
