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 Should it be or is the guide just out of date?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.

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.

      The second of three Unidentified Magic Items to be revealed from Kobolds and Catacombs, will Unidentified Maul be a smashing success on the ladder?
      Kripparrian revealed the second of three Unidentified Magic Items in Kobolds and Catacombs today on his Twitter accounter, Unidentifed Maul:

      A Paladin Weapon, Unidentified Maul begins each game with an unknown effect and will become "identified" upon drawing the card from your deck. The weapon will always be a 3 mana 2/2, but will be randomly bestowed with one of the four following effects when drawn:

      A couple of the potential modes on this card are very enticing. Two Silver Hand Recruits and a 2/2 weapon for 3 mana is a screaming deal, and the other three modes offer some serious value if you're already ahead on board. Given that three of the four potential modes on Unidentified Maul aren't very good when you're behind, I doubt this card will slot in as an instant replacement for Rallying Blade. Unidentified Maul could end up seeing play in token-based strategies, as granting +1 Attack or Divine Shield to a wide board of minions drawn from Small-Time Recruits is nothing to shake a hammer at.
      Will the random nature of Unidentified Maul be its downfall, or will its synergies with token strategies enable it to see some play on the ladder? Let us know what you think in the comments, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      Mage gets its first revealed Kobolds & Catacombs minion. And guess what? Joust is back!
      This card release was unexpected, since it wasn't on the schedule, but it is welcome nonetheless! The Hearthstone Brazil Instagram account revealed this minion:

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is interesting to see the Joust mechanic return after such a long time. I'd place this card in average tier. It is worse than Arcanologist, since it has one less health and it's also not guaranteed that it will draw you a spell. Even compared to Novice Engineer and Loot Hoarder, Raven Familiar might be a better body but the other two cards are run in decks that really need the guaranteed card draw. The poor Raven can be a liability in a control oriented Mage deck.
      This card is slightly better for Arena mode. Then again, spells aren't that common in that mode and there's also a reduced offer rate for spells like Fireball and Flamestrike.
      Lastly, the Beast synergy is noteworthy. I don't think we'll be seeing Beast Mage any time soon. So Raven Familiar is a weak 2-mana drop that can be generated and offered to Hunters - although this is mostly going to affect Wild mode.
      Feel free to visit our Kobolds & Catacombs hub for all details and revealed cards of the upcoming expansion.

      Spoiled yesterday as a 6 mana 5/4, Seeping Oozeling now appears on the PlayHearthstone website with a lowered mana cost.
      Edit: Confirmed in a tweet by the official Hearthstone account, the 5 mana 4/3 version of Seeping Oozeling is an error. Yesterday's 6 mana 5/4 version is the card we'll be seeing in K&C this December.
      Reddit user Fabman650 recently noticed that Seeping Oozeling has different stats on the official PlayHearthstone website than it did in yesterday's spoiler. The card was spoiled yesterday as a 6 mana 5/4, but appears on the PlayHearthstone website as a 5 mana 4/3:

      If this is truly an intended update by Blizzard (and not some kind of mistake), this would be a significant buff to Seeping Oozeling. The true power in this card lies in its Battlecry trigger, not its stats, meaning that a reduction to its mana cost would make it significantly stronger. At 5 mana, Seeping Oozeling also compares much more favorably to Savannah Highmane than it did before.
      Is Seeping Oozeling now strong enough to see play? Let us know what you think about the updated card, and remember to check our news forum and the Kobolds & Catacombs hub for more new cards from K&C!

      Silver Vanguard is a new neutral Common minion that will be introduced in Kobolds & Catacombs.
      PC Gamer has unveiled this brand new card: 

      The stats of Silver Vanguard are terrible for a 7-mana card. One could argue that the Deathrattle could trigger more easily with the card having such low health, but the 7 mana slot mostly contains minions with usually beefy stats. Blizzard seems to want to continue the trend they started in Year of the Mammoth, just like with the newly revealed Spiteful Summoner, of minions with interesting effects, but weak stats and slightly elevated Mana costs.
      As the PC Gamer article points out, Silver Vanguard could pull out some nice minions for Paladin and Warrior. Examples are Tirion Fordring, Ragnaros, Lightlord and Grommash Hellscream.
      What do you, guys and gals, think? As always, all the revealed cards can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs expansion hub.

      It is time for Wednesday's first card reveal. Behold, the Lone Champion!
      The reveal was made by Petr "CzechCloud" Žalud. Lone Champion is a 3 mana 2/4 Rare minion, which reads: "Battlecry: If you control no other minions, gain Taunt and Divine Shield". The video is in English.
      This looks like a powerful Arena card. Its power level is comparable to Tar Creeper but Lone Champion is actually a stickier minion that can make better trades. However, Tar Creeper's elemental synergy is a big advantage in constructed mode. Will Lone Champion see play in constructed? It might be a useful early game tool for control docks, but I wouldn't expect to see it that often.
      Keep up with everything related to the upcoming expansion in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub!
