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.

      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.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      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)

      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)
