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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
