Having a lot of fun with this deck.

After trying out, I feel this deck is a bit better than the Yogg Thief Rogue deck. Reason being, even this deck runs a lllloooootttt of card draw  (both actual and pseudo) and you usually have answers in most situations. So i doubt if we actually need the auctioneer here.

Also i felt the Yogg specific deck seems much more fun oriented (although still competitive) as it mainly involves drawing a lot of cards quickly to enable a faster Yogg. This deck is a bit stronger and has a more consistent win condition in N'Zoth. And you also have the Yogg as an alternate win condition.

Faster decks like Aggro Shaman and Hybrid hunter are definitely a problem if they get a strong start, but it definitely has a better matchup against Midrange decks while also being heavily favored against most of the slower decks.

This is probably the key here. Playing Yogg as a win condition could bring you anything on a very large scale. You know exactly what N'zoth is going to be giving you, which lets you prepare more.

Yeah even I am considering cutting yogg as it is mostly a gamble now.  Possibly a 2nd Sap/Shadowstrike shoule be fine i guess.

If you are facing more control, then maybe you can add a Sylvanas.

Edit: Actually using Deadly poison now.

I don't have yogg so could I replace him with Brann or Sylvanas? I think Brann is a good fit because he combos with a few of the cards

I don't have Thalnos and I try to avoid using Yogg.  Are Xaril and a second Sap good replacements?

have been using rag for some time instead of yogg. He is not doing bad , but I thought , would 1 auctioneer for that yogg spot do good ?

This deck runs "only" 12 spells, some of which should not be used to solely draw a card. Ragnaros the Firelord or the swaps I mentioned in the comment above should be better.

I'm interested in playing this deck. I have all of the suggested cards except for Yogg and Thalnos. Since the nerf, I really don't want to craft a Yogg and am 50/50 on crafting Thalnos. I do have Xaril and Sylvanas though. If I was to only swap the Yogg for one of these cards, any recommendation for which? Also any thoughts on whether it would be fine to just sub both for the aforementioned cards?

I love the steal dynamic that they have brought to rogue, it seems super fun. If anyone has any other recommendations I would love to hear them.

 

Thanks :)

I recommend crafting Bloodmage Thalnos as he is a classic card and useful in a variety of combo decks, and is a must-have for rogue. Until you craft him, you can use Kobold Geomancer or Journey Below.

Sylvanas Windrunner is a fine swap for Yogg-Saron, Hope's End, and is possibly the best swap in this deck. Xaril, Poisoned Mind is too bad against faster decks, which currently dominate the meta. Maybe its time will come, but you will probably have to wait (at least) until the next expansion.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!
