Aggro Rogue Deck List

Recommended Posts

Paragraph 3.3 refers to Lotus Assassin, while the card in the deck is a Lotus Agents. You might want to ask Sottle which one of the two is correct.

While this deck is very good, I'm not so sure if it's actually favored against pirate warrior. The main difficulty I'm running into is the turn one interaction between the one drops of each deck. Since all your turn one pirates aside from small time buccaneer are one hp, if the warrior plays n'zoth's first mate he can just kill your one drop and your patches with his weapon and his own patches, leaving him with a 1/1 and a weapon equipped. This small amount of tempo gain can actually be enough to lose a game between two decks this aggressive. If you get small-time buccaneer, it's all good, but they can also get it and wreck you so it evens out. Overall, pretty dumb and coin flippy match up, but I would say the warrior has a slight advantage.

Still, I climbed from rank 12 to 8 with relative ease, and considering this is the beginning of the season and i'm facing people who are usually at legend, I can't complain about the overall results.

This deck has done quite well for me so far, 16-5 going from rank 18 to 12 on NA, one loss to shaman, paladin and pirate warrior. Because I rarely seemed to get a good chance to play them I swapped the defenders for 1x Twisted Worgen and 1x Shadow Sensei about ten games in.

I recommend the following changes:

Cut out:
- 1x Lotus Agents (too slow)
- 2x Shadow Rager (too slow / often taken out by 1 damage AoEs like Fan of Knifes or Whirlwind / no synergies / often "only" do 5 damage and will then be taken out while other minions provide repetitive damage)

Put in:
- 2x Southsea Captain (huge pirate synergy / useful to boost damage / providing the advantage needed in the early game against other aggro decks)
- 1x Sap (very useful to remove taunts, something this deck otherwise couldn't deal with)

I'm playing this deck (with the recommended changes) on the Asian servers. Huge success; climbing the ranks like crazy, currently playing on 5. However, I don't see many pirate warriors on the Asian servers atm, so I am not sure how this deck does in a more aggressive meta. I am also thinking about cutting one SI:7 or one Horserider for a second Sap, as the more control-oriented decks play lots of taunts these days.

Any great swaps for both Shaku and Xaril? I have none of them atm, but I hope they can be changed for something "similar" :) Ideas are welcome :D

Would small time buccaneer be better than buccaneer? also is there reason to not play southsea captainb?

If you play Small-Time Buccaneer on turn 1, it is a 1/1, so if your opponent plays a 2-drop minion, you are forced to dagger up if you want to get some value out of the Small-Time Buccaneer, whereas Buccaneer can trade into any 3/2 by himself, and into any 2/3 with Patches the Pirate. During mid and late game, Buccaneer provides guaranteed damage, which can sometimes end up being lethal if you are missing the last point of damage. Small-Time Buccaneer can occasionally be superior in mid game, though that depends on the matchup. 

If you are talking about the full budget version, Southsea Captain is not included because there isn't really much space for it. You can however swap it in for SI:7 Agent. If you are talking about the budget version, that's because it would make the deck too expensive and it goes against the rule of no epics and legendaries.

should i swap one agent for one captain or both?

Having only one of each lowers the consistency of the deck. Try adding 2 Southsea Captains. If it does not work out, remove one. If not even the one works, revert to the original build.

Both Keleseth and Eviscerates? Is that a typo?

And how necessary are Shaku & Sonya? Possible replacements for them, or at least for shaku? Bonemares/fledglings perhaps in place of them or eviscerates?

Hey, I'm unable to find where exactly it is. Can you please specify where you found this?

They are very strong, but not crucial. Bonemares and Eviscerates sound fine, but make sure to re-evaluate after a few games to see if they are truly working out for you.

I think he/she was referring to this deck Tempo Rogue Deck.

In the guide there at the end of "3.1.2. Evaluating Your Outs and Setting Up Lethal": For example, if you have Charge minions in hand, you should play these first to be able to get the damage through before a Taunt comes down, and then follow up with damage like Eviscerate and SI:7 Agent that can ignore Taunt.

It's just a general "How to play tempo rogue" but somehow confusing when the deck above the guide doesn't have the card mentioned :)

Oh, I was looking for parts that talked about Eviscerates in context with Prince Keleseth. While I did notice this part, I was not sure whether this is what they were referring to, as it does not talk about Prince Keleseth, and the Eviscerates are not contained in the deck (I added removal of that mention onto the to-do list).

      Arena Rotation

      When United in Stormwind launches on August 3, the Arena will include cards from the following sets:

      After regaining his freedom, Illidan was eager to prove himself once and for all. But even as he journeyed far from his homeland and joined forces with new allies, the thirst for power never left him. It was only a matter of time before it interfered with his judgment, resulting in more dire consequences than ever before…Defeating all 8 bosses in this linear adventure will reward 1 Demon Hunter pack, containing only Demon Hunter cards from Standard.
      United in Stormwind Rewards Track & Tavern Pass
      When the Rewards Track refreshes when United in Stormwind launches, all players will automatically be granted any unclaimed rewards on both the free track and the Tavern Pass track (if purchased), and a completely new Rewards Track of unlockable loot will take its place.

      The Forged in the Barrens Tavern Pass will expire with the launch of United in Stormwind and a new Tavern Pass will be made available for purchase—offering a host of brand-new cosmetic rewards and XP boosts.

      Learn more about the United in Stormwind Rewards Track and Tavern Pass here.
      As a reminder, Battlegrounds Perks are now available as a standalone purchase, separate from the Tavern Pass.
      New Cosmetic Coins
      Two new Cosmetic Coins are being added with United in Stormwind, the Stormwind coin and the Lordaeron coin. The Stormwind coin is obtainable by completing the first 90 levels of the Rewards Track with the Tavern Pass. The Lordaeron coin is obtainable by collecting 135 unique United in Stormwind cards.

      Keep in mind that United in Stormwind will have a 35-card Mini-Set that will make it easier to reach both the 25 total United in Stormwind Legendary cards for the Archbishop Benedictus Diamond card reward and the 135 total United in Stormwind cards for the Lordaeron Cosmetic Coin. We’ll have more information to share about the United in Stormwind Mini-Set in the coming months.

      Here's a classic WoW history moment that's arriving in Hearthstone, as the United in Stormwind expansion is bringing with it a very familiar weapon, as well as the probably most famous mob type of all time connected directly with it!
      Many players got their start in WoW after watching the South Park "Make Love, Not Warcraft" episode, in which the kids are unable to play the game due to an extremely powerful player and have to grind low-level boars to get to max level - at the end of which Blizzard bring in the Sword of a Thousand Truths to slay that player. And now both the boars and the sword are arriving in Hearthstone, and are connected!

      Source: Chrononi.
      While the above is probably not viable as a competitive deck, it'll definitely get at least a couple of fun ones, and will almost certainly feature in a looot of highlight clips! It's a very well done reference to the episode as well, as the cards interact exactly the way the story progresses (well, it was a bit more than 7 boars but still). You can check out the episode here if you haven't seen it in a while (or ever) as it's definitely worth a rewatch!
