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.

should we run yogg still after nerf ? Its not so big of a yogg so I think it can be useful still

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.

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.

      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.

      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)

      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)
