Got a Daily quest that required me to get X number of Rogue wins. I didn't have any Rogue decks built, so I tried this one. Ended up going 7 - 0 in ladder play before finally succumbing to a Druid and his army of treants. I definitely recommend this deck to anyone just getting starting with the Rogue class.

I'm not sure if anyone reads these still but I have two questions regarding this style of deck.

 

I noticed that when comparing this deck to the medium budget rogue aggro deck they remove the Leper Gnome but keep the Argent Squires and I was curious why. For an aggro deck Leper Gnome seems to be better to me. Perhaps it is for cold blood+divine shield combo on argent squires?

 

My second question is if they do not have any cards in play is it worth it to put combo cards on the field without activating their combo? (IE defias ringleader) I feel like if I do not get the exact cards I want to draw I stall through the early game and then I do not have enough pressure. I'm sure I am playing it wrong but I am not sure what to change to be more effective.

 

Sorry if my questions are dumb I haven't played very much constructed because I mostly play arena mode.

Hey, atz

Like you said, Leper Gnome is better for most aggro decks as it will often do more than its 2 deathrattle damage, which can be really nasty. However, since this is a mid-range aggressive deck, you play your early game a bit more defensively by responding to your opponent's plays, rather than committing your entire hand towards pressure. Your deck will pull ahead in mid-game and Argent Squire will often prove to be better than Leper Gnome as it will always survive the damage from any hero power and potentially delay your opponent for a second use as well as give you the chance to take out any weak minion. Argent Squire is not as aggressive as Leper Gnome, but will be just as annoying.

You can always play combo cards without their combo, however you should really consider the state of the game - in order to play a SI:7 Agent or Defias Ringleader without its combo, you either need to be in a tight spot with no other solutions (being under immense pressure) or you are so much ahead that you don't mind committing another card towards pressure.

In either case, it is a rather bad idea and I rarely play my combo cards without triggering their combo.

I created my rogue deck based on this suggestion. It's still my best deck. I made some modifications(around 3 or 4 cards) and made it more personal.

 

It seems i get beaten more often against druids and rangers.

 

The deck becomes more powerfull when you play second. Ignoring combos will lead to defeat most of the times.

Thanks for posting this deck, I found it very effective and enjoyable to play. I've played 15 games, and won 13 of them in ranked mode, this is the very best for me, with any type of decks tried so far!

What do you think about a change between Sunfury Protector and Defender of Argus, as the Protector cost less mana, so you can make more combos in the early game?

Hey, Alexbeast,

Gruul is generally a bad card, it used to be played in some priest decks but since it is an easy target for Big Game Hunter or other removal, it will rarely have any impact on the game as it has no immediate impact on the board... except intimidation :)

Ragnaros on the other hand is great in any mid-range or control deck. If you wish to include it in your rogue deck, I would suggest tailoring entire deck theme a bit more towards mid range as it already is.

You can potentially take out Cold Blood as its not really needed and you can try to find replacement for 2x Leper Gnome. (Healing: Earthen Ring Farseer, Weapons: Ooze, but preferably, 1x Big Game Hunter + 1x Faceless Manipulator in case you have them)

Hope it helps,

Poyo

Would it be viable to include a Blood Knight in this deck?

Hey, Ron

Yea, Blood Knight can be a solid choice for any deck that runs minions with Divine Shield, especially if meta game is full of such minions as well.

Just finished naxx and tried adding in nerubian eggs instead of the squires. There were already some good combos in the deck to go with them and it doesn't wreck the mana curve too badly. Thoughts, concerns?

Nerubian Egg may seem amazing with its potential 4/6 value for 2 mana, however in reality, it can be even more demanding than getting your Ancient Watcher to become useful. Other than throwing it into an aoe spell, I don't find other synergies revolving the egg worth the effort.

This deck shot me through rank 20 to 17 on the ladder, then hit a wall.

 

I'm new to the game but, I feel the deck suffers from running out of steam too early (mainly due to comboing in one turn), then having no draw power to compensate (I understand this may be a general weakness with a "rush/aggro"' deck).

 

Additionally, opponents that used nerubian eggs, harvest golems, and really just plain old taunts shut me down hard. Having no silences or assinates makes these cards harder to deal with.

 

Thoughts?

I'm noticing the same thing with the taunts as well. If the majority of minions they are playing have taunt I just concede, there's not a lot in this deck to deal with taunt heavy decks and still have the power to attack the player. I'd like to see a good way to take care of that.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
