This guide contains detailed strategy, mulligan, and deck-building information to help you improve your Miracle Rogue play for The Wailing Caverns expansion meta.

Miracle Rogue is one of the oldest and most established decks in all of Hearthstone. The deck's strength comes from its ability to rapidly draw and play large numbers of cards in a single turn. This provides the deck with huge consistency in gaining tempo advantages over opponents to quickly dismantle their boards and overwhelm them before they can come up with a strong response turn.

Aim of Miracle Rogue Deck

Miracle Rogue is capable of playing some of the most cost-effective minions in all of Hearthstone turn after turn. If Miracle Rogue is ever able to stick one of these minions on the board, the deck can easily cobble together massive amounts of burst damage in a single turn with Sinister Strikes and other cheap cards. Due to the burst-oriented nature of Miracle Rogue's damage, the deck tends to be excellent against control decks.

Miracle Rogue Deck Mulligan

Miracle Rogue is a deck that relies heavily on performing multi-card combos in order to create huge bursts of tempo. To facilitate this, the deck has a very unorthodox mulligan that prioritises finding key combo cards.

  • Mulligan Against AggroBrain Freeze
  • Mulligan Against ControlGadgetzan Auctioneer.

Miracle Rogue Deck Strategy

During the early game, the sole aim of Miracle Rogue is to set up your hand and deck to gain a strong position going into the mid game. This largely involves drawing cards through Swindle and generating The Coins by playing Sketchy Information to draw Loan Sharks or simply by playing Loan Shark directly.

Once you hand is full of cards, including The Coins and Gadgetzan Auctioneer, you can begin playing out your cards to either OTK your opponent, or simply deal severe damage to them. Generally speaking, you should start your combo by playing a Gadgetzan Auctioneer, assisted by Coins and optionally discounted by the combination of Efficient Octo-bot and Ethereal Augmerchant. With an Auctioneer in play, you should play out any remaining Coins and 0 Mana spells to fill your hand up from spells. From this position you can optionally play and damage further Efficient Octobots to discount any remaining cards. To round out your turn you should use Ethereal Augmerchants, combined with Shadowsteps to provide Spell Damage to any minions you have on the board before using Garrote and Sinister Strike to burst down your opponent.

Against Aggro, you should make liberal use of cheap removal like Brain Freeze, Backstab, and SI:7 Extortion. Using Cloak of Shadows is also particularly effective at buying yourself an additional turn before your final combo and should be used the turn before you anticipate your opponent being able to kill you.

Against Control, you should look to maximise the damage of your combo to ensure you can push through any healing or Armor your opponent may have. In particular, you should try to save a few spells for the end of your combo allowing you to draw additional damage from Garrotes while you still have your spell damage in play.

  • Against Aggro — Add 1x Cloak of Shadows for 1x Shroud of Concealment.
  • Against Control — Add 2x Wicked Stab (Rank 1) for 1x Ethereal Augmerchant and 1x Shroud of Concealment.
