3. Lackey Rogue Mulligan Guide
As with most Rogue decks, Lackey Rogue lacks a strong early game and instead focuses on retaking control of the board in the mid game. In order to do this, it is important to look for key combo cards in your mulligan.
- General Mulligan (keep regardless of what your opponent is playing) — EVIL Cable Rat, EVIL Miscreant, Blink Fox.
- Mulligan against Aggro (also keep if you think you are playing against an aggressive deck) — Backstab, SI:7 Agent.
- Mulligan against Control (also keep if you think you are playing against a slow deck) — Heistbaron Togwaggle, Sprint.
4. Lackey Rogue Strategy
Lackey Rogue is a combo deck built around creating Lackeys. As such, you should try to maximise the amount you can generate with EVIL Miscreant by pairing it with cards like Shadowstep and Spirit of the Shark. Lackeys themselves are very powerful 1-drops that can be used to control the board and also work excellently with Spirit of the Shark themselves. The main win condition of the deck is Heistbaron Togwaggle which can lead you to victory by Discovering fantastic treasures. All treasures are particularly powerful but not always enough to win the game on their own, so you should try to combine Heistbaron Togwaggle with Spirit of the Shark or Shadowstep so that you may access multiple treasures. When it comes to playing Treasures, Zarog's Crown and Wondrous Wand are the most influential, but Tolin's Goblet can also be a particularly excellent choice if your hand is empty.
Against Aggro, you should try to stay fully in control of the board at all times, making full use of Backstab, SI:7 Agent, Fan of Knives, and Lackeys to control the board. Staying in control of the board will often starve your opponent of resources while you slowly drift towards playing Heistbaron Togwaggle to win the game.
Against Control, your aim should be to maximise the value of your deck to win the game. Heistbaron Togwaggle is often essential for this and you should try to maximise the number of times you can trigger his Battlecry by saving all copies of Shadowstep and Spirit of the Shark to use with it. As Control decks often try to win through fatigue, you should also avoid using the Wondrous Wand Treasure as you may draw through your deck before you are able to win the game.
