[Archived] Hearthstone Legendary Rogue Aggro Deck

5 posts in this topic

Hi !


Thanks for all those guides, it helps really much!


I tested this deck for a 20 days~ and I ended up rank 6.


I haven't Sylvanas nor Big Game Hunter, so I use Ragnaros & Assassinate.


So far I really like the deck but I feel really weak against some decks, especially OTK Rogue & some Mages. I feels like it's really hard to win past 9 turn against Mages and some stall very good during the early stage and I can't reach them.


Some Hunters are really annoying too with Unleash The Dog. If I didn't get the right start up hand It's really hard for me to handle their combo, any advice ?


I don't encounter alot of Taunt Monsters too, and when they're out, I usually get rid of them with eviscerate and my others spells while my minions hit the Hero HP.


So I wonder if there is no better choice instead of Dark Knight. I'm thinking about The Beast or Cairne. The first one is a really strong hitter while the other got some good board control. What do you think guys?

Hey, Kayin

Regardless of which deck you pick, you will always find your "nightmare matchup" - a deck that you will always suffer playing against, however as long as your overall win ratio is above 50%, you are playing a deck that can progress further.

Your choice to swap Sylvanas and Big Game Hunter for Raggy and Assassinate is great, however Ragnaros might be a bit slow in an aggressive deck, but still an outstanding finisher.

Regarding Hunters, play aggressively against them and each play you make, think what will happen if your opponent "Unleashes the Dog" next turn :) You will find Defender of Argus being one of your favorite cards in this matchup. Also, you should always prioritize trading minions with whatever hunter has on the board - keep your offense small but efficient and save your spells as finishers (DP / evis etc...)

Dark Knight in my opinion is currently one of the best legendaries. Mages and Hunters will often have no taunters and in such situations, DK is pretty worthless, but majority of the decks play Defender of Argus and DK wins games against those decks. Its value is insane. 

I would advise against The Beast, I personally think its a horrible card in constructed and arena, while Cairne could work - its pretty slow and generally played in control decks, but since you already have Raggy and seem to have shifted towards better late game, Cairne will have pretty decent value.

Hope this helps,

Poyo himself replying, I couldn't expect better.


Thanks alot for your time here.


When i'll get the right amount of dust, i'll test Sylvanas, but it's out of my budget for now...:/


Thanks for your advices against Hunters, i'll try it this way.


I'll try to get Sylvanas and I will test it without Ragnaros to see the difference. I'll listen to you and pass up on The Beast. I'll come again in a month I think, the time to really see the change between Rag and Sylv!


It helped,

Thanks alot,

Hi, I've been running this deck for about a week now, and I've gotten myself stuck around rank 13. It's been about 3 days of bouncing between 12 and 14 but the deck seems to be losing it's consistency. I've tried replacing the argent squires with shadow steps bc they work well with the agents and the charge this deck has. After reading the comments above I think I will try replacing bghunter with Assasinate for a little more versatility, however, I can't shake the feeling I'm not using bghunter properly a 4-2 minion can be really handy, but I find he sits in my hand for most matches. Furthermore I'm ready to replace Sylvannas with a cold blood at this point, she is an awesome card, but extremely hit or miss with this deck, but most of all she seems slow, unfortunately I don't have one, but I think at 6 mana Carin would be better. For now I'm going to run this deck without Sylvannas to try and introduce a little more speed. I'll let you know how it turns out, any advice you could pass along concerning this deck would be awesome.

I'd just like to add that I know that a lot of the of upsets this deck has been a result of bad draws on the 1st turn, and nearly all losses are pretty close, finally I just might not make the right decisions, every match is different and rank 13 may be all I'm capable of. However, I hope it's not, I've been playing since the open beta and I'm pretty sure I'm not a pushover.

Deck is definitely a lot of fun to play!

      Ben Brode confirmed the 2 game win streak to be unintentional and explained why he's not satisfied with the Ranked Ladder System.
      The developer team listened to the community and they will be making adjustments based on simulation systems that help predict changes that would do to the population curve. Here's what Brode had to say.
      Ben Brode
      Seeing some comments here about how people are enjoying easier laddering due to this bug, and hoping we leave it unfixed. I thought I might chime in and talk about the ladder a bit, and hopefully get some feedback! We have been discussing the ladder system a lot recently - we're not 100% happy with it.
      Here are some things we are currently discussing:
      Rank 18 players are higher ranked than 50% of HS players. That number doesn't make you feel like you are in the top 50%, and that's a missed opportunity. We try and counter this by telling you all over the place what the mapping is to the rest of the population, but it'd be better if expectations and reality matched here.
      We've received feedback that the last-minute jostling for high Legend ranks at the end of a season doesn't feel all that great.
      We've received feedback that the ladder can feel like a grind.
      We are reanalyzing the number of ranks, the number of stars per rank, the number of bonus stars given out at the start of the season, and other parts of the system.
      We are developing simulation systems that let us predict what changes to the ladder would do to the population curve. If we inflate too many stars, the whole population ends up in the Legend bucket and while that might feel great for a single month, the entire system falls apart eventually. People who played waaaay back may remember when "3-star master" was the pinnacle of achievement, and it meant nothing because so many people ended up in that bucket. With better simulation tools, we are planning on trying a lot of crazy things. Iteration is important in design, and getting the tools to iterate quickly is very important.
      Something I want to emphasize is that while I think we can improve the ladder, the metric for that improvement isn't necessarily any one player's individual rank increasing. Players want the better rewards (and prestige) associated with high ranks, or the Legend card back, so any change we make that increases the chances of those are likely to be perceived as "good", at least for the short term. But part of what makes the ranked ladder compelling is that exists to rank players. If you want to see how you stack up, ranked is the place to do it. So while some inflation might improve the experience, we need to be careful and make sure we end up with a system that makes people feel rewarded for increases in personal skill or for finding a new deck that breaks the meta.
      Have you considered not making the fall in rank so severe in the start of the new season? When I was a new player at rank 21 it didn't feel good to lose against a wicked good deck all the time with my inferior cards.
      Yes, that's what I meant by this: We are reanalyzing [...] the number of bonus stars given out at the start of the season.
      We think it's a reasonable direction to explore in, but in general it's hard to predict the results on the population distribution among the ranks. Hoping to do some simulation there and make sure there aren't other, better options, too.
      Is this really that bad considering legend has its own internal ranking system?
      Yes, I think so. Imagine just one bucket and we sort by MMR. There aren't breakpoints with rewards as you increase in skill. There isn't an obvious way to communicate with others about how good you are. It's also difficult to know if you are bad or good. (Is Legend 135003 good? What about Legend 27809?)
      The way we communicate our skill or progress is important. Ever heard a friend say "dude! I got to rank 5 this month!"? What is that achievement in a world where everyone is in the same bucket? Watching discreet rank buckets go by (and feeling that progression) and feeling the thrill of reaching a new rank that you've never hit before... those are pretty important, I think.
