Feels like this deck gets beaten by everything in the meta at the moment....:(

Miracle Rogue is one of the most complicated decks in the game, and also one of the least forgiving ones. Every single misplay can cost you the game and that's where are most of your losses coming from. The deck does have some unfavourable matchups, but definitely not that many to give players the feel of "getting beaten by everything", Could you please provide some of your replays with the deck?

Well, rogue is not a class like warlock and like, you just don't play minions each and every turn. It is quite sensitive to any kind of mistakes, and it is really hard to master, whichever variant you play. This deck needs little testing I think, which I want to do, and hopefully I could give another feedback about it.T

Hey,

I've tried the deck a bit on ladder, I like the playstyle a lot. I just don't understand why Journey below is in the decklist over Deadly Poison. I think Journey below rather belongs into N'Zoth Deathrattle Rogue.

Really solid and fun to play if you're facing control decks, or just ones that are a little slower than the average in the current meta. Sadly this gets chewed up by aggro most of the time, as you're not always going to be getting SI-7 + backstab or prep+removal in your mulligan. I'm definitely still keeping this in my collection in hopes of a change in the meta.

You keep mentioning Deadly Poison in the guide although it's not in the deck. Should it be or is the guide just out of date?

Parts of the guide have been copied from regular miracle's guide. Sadly, we oversaw that Deadly Poison is not in the deck and forgot to remove the mentions of it. We apologize and the guide should be fixed soon. Thanks for letting us know about it.

For those who don't have Thalnos: I subbed in a Cutpurse, not having the BMT, and it works..miracles.

*puts on sunglasses*

All that just for a joke? I approve. As an honest replacement though, I'd say use your Kobold Geomancer

It's actually a legit tech, for Rogue The Coin does a lot of heavy lifting. Spell Damage is great, sure, but you don't really get to kill that more of stuff than you usually do.

Surely the problem with Cutpurse is that it can only benefit you if:

  • You play it early and the enemy has no answer in hand that can do 2 damage.
  • You are already winning.

At least with Tomb Pillager you are guaranteed the coin. The spell damage at least can immediately benefit you, whether to bring back through a board clear with FoK or finish an opponent off.

N I C E !

after beeing lucky to find some major cards in packs i played this deck. I wasn't sure if i could handle it (never legend xD). But actually it works just great. Won 10 games in a row - (just rank 16-12 but who cares). And like others mentioned, it's a lot of fun. Love the giants.

The guide was pretty helpful as well - thanks a lot.

Journey Below is a gamble, it all depends on your personal feeling toward RNG/consistency. On the better end, it can grant you a Sylvanas Windrunner or Cairne Bloodhoof. But since this deck isn't running N'Zoth, the Corruptor you can definitely cut it out in favor of a Deadly Poison.

Pretty much what Keizoku said. Additionally, Deadly Poison can be played on turns 3+ while requiring a weapon, which could screw up your turn 2 and 3. It also has a worse synergy with Gadgetzan Auctioneer, as you need a weapon with preferably 2 charges to gain the full value of the card, or to even be able to play it.

hey guys i really really like this deck but i feel it just gets destroyed by aggro and especially secret hunter,any space in the deck for heals like in your southsea deckhand version?heck,maybe even a defender of argus to taunt up the giants in case of charge minions...

Defender of Argus is a bad idea.

If i were you, i would try cutting a Shiv and a Journey Below for 2x Earthen Ring Farseer.

Would counterfeit coin be good here?

İts the only card from the new set which could fit here, but instead of what?

Maybe one shiv and Journey below, other cheap spells should not be cut.

Or, this one may be little more interesting, but one cold blood, and the reason is that, since deck already has big threats in the form of EvC and giants, two cold bloods may not be as effective as in other rogue decks which has the card. Maybe you can cut 1 cold blood and 1 shiv/Journey below.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)
      Spreading Plague now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
