The original Dstar version of this has not been working great for me. But I'm intrigued by the archetype, so I'm going to try this list out. It makes more sense to me anyway. I never really understood why Freakeh and Orange were running in this.
I used to play long hours of Miracle Rogue and since the nerfs and Loatheb, i feel like something has been missing from my Hearthstone playtime. I always love the math behind it: how much mana can I use, if I Prep I get 3 more, if I fan with an auctioneer I get 2 cards and will I overdraw, etc. I feel that this deck, well my version if it, has filled that void; it has scratched the itch. LOVE IT!
I got a daily needing 5 rogue wins. Granted, I'm low rank (17 at the moment) but I was able to go 5-1 with it. It's quite a scrappy deck. There were a couple times I thought for sure I was going to lose. A couple of lucky healbot draws and a well timed blade storm brought me right back into it. The deck really is quite tricky and I definitely made a few mistakes. It's more effective than any rogue deck I've played since miracle was nerfed into oblivion though. Thanks Dills!
I've been playing this deck for the last few days now & love it, thanks! Came into the game late so missed out on miracle rogue so was glad to hear about something new. The only cards I don't have are Trade Prince Gallywix & Ragnaros the Firelord, so I've put in Sylvanas Windrunner & originally a Ravenholdt Assassin but not really feeling him. At the minute I'm torn with either a Shade of Naxxramas or a Southsea Deckhand & I'm 1200 off of being able to craft Ragnaros...
I got steamrolled by this deck around rank 19 at the beginning of this season, so I can attest to its power. Granted, I was using a deck with only basic cards, and was drawing none of the cards I might have been able to use to counter it before it got too powerful. But, man, if you can play this deck right, you can hit like a truck. Can't wait to get the cards I need and try it out myself.
I've always hated playing against Rogues. Their combos just come out of nowhere and leave me scratching my head about what just happened!I've been playing since the game came out in May and it's the only class I've never played (apart from levelling to 10 in practice mode). I think I got creamed by this deck a couple of times recently. Very frustrating!
I created a quick tutorial on this deck. Youtube search "slapgg what's oil rogue?"There is also a subtitled version for the hearing impaired.
