Vigor instead of Deeper Stratagem

So I just got my Rogue to 110 on Monday and plan on raiding soon. But  I am a bit unhappy about Vigor not being an option. Every guide I found put the other two talents above it. I really like playing with Vigor, this might just be because my gear is still kinda bad and messed up(850ish), but it feels a lot smoother with Vigor.
So I wanted to know why excactly the other two are better and by how much. 

Edit: Sub

Not sure if you're referring to Outlaw or Sub, but guides in general are written with min/max raid output in mind (and using them if you aren't familiar with the rotation can be a huge dps loss even if they're the 'right' talents).   In either case,  the other talents are suggested because they give you a higher theoretical damage ceiling (and a lower floor).  Vigor is perfectly fine for learning the basics while keeping up decent output, and for Sin it's the best choice in any case.

No problem. 

For a new sub player, I would absolutely spec into vigor until you're 100% comfortable with it - that spec severely punishes sketchy resource management, so having the smoother energy curve early on is a godsend.

      I've never shared a deck but I'll make an exception sharing one of my most successful decks (played on the ladder up to rank 3 several months)
      It's a Keleseth Rogue with very peculiar cards and the biggest difference is that Deathwing is mostly the win-condition of the deck
      Here is the masterpiece :D
      2X Backstab
      2X Shadowstep
      2X Elven Archer
      2X Swashburglar
      2X Southsea Deckhand
      1X Patches the Pirate
      1X Prince Keleseth
      1X Acolyte of Pain
      2X SI:7 Agent
      2X Southsea Captain
      1X Edwin VanCleef
      1X Shaku, the Collector
      2X Saronite Chain Gang
      2X Nesting Roc
      2X Vilespine Slayer
      1X The Black Knight
      1X The Curator
      2X Bonemare
      1X Deathwing
       
      Elven Archer is mainly a combo activator that is more useful than Fire Fly since it does damage and can be shadowstepped if needs and save countless damage to face when big minions remain on the field with 1 hp saving you from taking huge face  damage to ping them, the card really shine in the deck to the point to deserving to name it
      The Curator is there to pull Deathwing mostly and you get also a Nesting Roc in the process
      Nesting Roc takes the place of Cobalt Scalebane commonly seen to add synergy to Curator, give a strong minion that priest almost never remove or a 7 hp taunt that I find more useful than a 5/5 do nothing
      The Black Knight was added to help Vilespine removing high health minions that mostly have taunt to direct Vilespine on the other minions
      Deathwing is the big surprise because it usually win matches on its own even matches that are completely off control can be win thanks to him.
      Most people tend to go all in when see a Rogue in late game because almost nobody with similar decks bring aoe removal and even less can suspect that the dragon you pull with The Curator is Deathwing himself wrongfully think that is probably a Cobalt Scalebane
      Against a Jade Druid landing a Deathwing is almost guaranteed to end the game because they spend any removal on the other minions and tend to go wide with boards resulting in losing 6-7 minions and have to face a 12 attack minion that they need at least 2 turns, turns they don't have cause Deathwing going face and leaving them dead.
      Not drawing Keleseth early here isn't much a loss because you not need to win as fast as possible othwerwise you are doomed because usually the plan B works better than the plan A because the deck run so many minion that almost nobody save a removal for the 'surprise' Deathwing.
      If someone wants try it let me know how was. I used this from rank 15 to 3 for 3 months already winning most of the matches without much problems against the most commonly found decks in standard.

      I have a few questions concerning the upcoming expansion:
      First I wanted to ask, how everything with legendarys and artefacts is now going to be, are there still gonna be legendarys with the same role as in Legion and what about artefacts, are the HoA armors the new artefacts ?
       
      Furthermore I wanted to know wheter or not pvp is mandatory for warfronts and island plundering or if you don't need to be a top pvp player to still achieve some nice things and interesting rewards.
       
      With warfronts I also wanted to enquire how the gameplay most likely will look like, they are pve events so you shouldn't need to be a pvp player, right ?
      Also one last question, how hard do you think the warfront rewards will be to get ? The transmog does look quite nice and I wanted to ask if it is gonna be something, that is going to be locked and only available to hardcore players

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Salutations !
      Vous avez eu la sagacité d'ouvrir ce message de recrutement, et vous allez en être récompensés. Car la BiZon Team recrute et s'intéresse à vous : on a toujours besoin de gens intelligents. À vous donc ses verts pâturages paradisiaques, ses bovins majestueux et des lendemains glorieux !
      La BiZon Team est une guilde de l'Alliance à vocation PvE domiciliée sur Elune. Nous raidons les lundis et les jeudis de 21h à minuit et nettoyons le mode HM à chaque palier de l'extension (9/9H actuellement). Notre objectif est de retourner progresser en mode mythique dès que nos effectifs le permettront. Ainsi, afin de compléter notre roster de raid, nous ouvrons une phase de recrutement. Si nous avons déjà nos deux tanks attitrés, nous recrutons toutefois des DPS et des healers sans distinction de classes et de spécialisations.
      Si le nom de la guilde ne vous est pas familier, c'est que nous venons juste de migrer sur Elune. Née il y a fort longtemps sur DAoC, la BiZon Team a en effet parcouru les prés du serveur Cho'gall depuis la sortie du jeu (Vanilla). Son nom délicat, agréable à l'œil et à l'oreille, est une déformation de bisontin, les habitants de Besançon dont était issue la très grande majorité des membres fondateurs. Bon, depuis, les choses ont bien changé : on s'est agrandit et on compte désormais des parisiens, des bretons, des lyonnais, des gens du nord, du centre, du sud... même des suisses et des belges, c'est vous dire comme on est ouvert ;-) .
      Malgré tout ce brassage culturel, l'essence de la guilde est restée la même depuis le début : avancer sérieusement sans se prendre au sérieux. La guilde propose un forum, un calendrier d'inscription et un serveur vocal Discord. Ce dernier est réservé aux consignes et informations claires et concises durant les boss, mais l'ambiance entre les pulls y est chaleureuse, conviviale et, il faut bien le dire, souvent grivoise. À ce titre d'ailleurs, si vous êtes mineurs, cela risque de poser quelques problèmes. Outre le fait que la moyenne d'âge de la guilde a allègrement dépassé la barre de la trentaine et que vous vous sentirez peut-être parfois en décalage avec le reste d'entre nous, le filtre à obscénités ne saurait protéger entièrement vos yeux chastes et il ne fonctionne pas sur Discord. Non pas que nous soyons une meute de gros lourdauds en rut, mais il arrive qu'une blague salace ou un bon mot un peu gras fleurissent ici ou là. À vous donc de voir si ces quelques réserves ne vous découragent pas ;-) .
      Bref, si ce message a piqué votre intérêt, si vous partagez l'amour des jeux de mots pourris et des références musicales et cinématographiques douteuses, que vous aimiez progresser en PvE dans le sérieux et la bonne humeur ou que vous préfériez jouer à votre rythme en profitant de l'ambiance de la guilde, nous vous invitons à nous rejoindre !
      Pour postuler, rendez-vous sur le site bzt.fr, créez un compte et faites un post de candidature ! L'ensemble de la guilde est prête à répondre à vos questions et à vous accueillir à bras ouverts.
      Meuh !
