So on the day classic format came out I put together a miracle rogue deck. I can't say that I am a pro player, but not new to the game either. But as of 29.03 I sit on about 27% winrate with it. Managed to climb only as high as rank 9 silver.
Since it is supposed to be the meta tyrant of classic, and numerous players got their first legend rank with it, I am a bit lost.
So, as the title says, I am looking for an as full as possible, comprehensive competitive guide for the deck. I managed to find some old 2014 videos with its gameplay, but hardly anyone comments on their thought process while playing.
So far my main problems are that I am pretty much dead before I can do anything to the opponent. I am constantly either with hand full of dead spells (two saps with no taregets for them, conceal with no minions, preps, blade flurry with no poisons, etc.) or an empty hand with no ways to draw cards, even though the deck in theory has plenty :/ Thus by the time I start rolling out, the opponent already has their win condition set up.
Aggro decks fill the board with minions I never have enough eviscerates and backstabs to clear, handlocks have too many taunts, which again, are too difficult to kill (even added second sap because of it), control warriors amass so much armor that no Leeroy combos can break, and mages always kill gadgetzan with flamestrike and freeze everything, not to mention their ice blocks. Thus I have a feeling, this deck is countered by everything.
Here is my decklist:
# Class: Rogue
# Format: Classic
# Year of the Gryphon
# 2x (0) Backstab
# 2x (0) Preparation
# 2x (0) Shadowstep
# 1x (1) Cold Blood
# 1x (1) Conceal
# 2x (1) Deadly Poison
# 1x (2) Blade Flurry
# 1x (2) Bloodmage Thalnos
# 2x (2) Eviscerate
# 2x (2) Sap
# 2x (2) Shiv
# 1x (3) Coldlight Oracle
# 2x (3) Earthen Ring Farseer
# 1x (3) Edwin VanCleef
# 1x (3) Fan of Knives
# 2x (3) SI:7 Agent
# 1x (4) Leeroy Jenkins
# 1x (5) Assassin's Blade
# 1x (5) Azure Drake
# 2x (5) Gadgetzan Auctioneer
One coldlight oracle instead of drake because of aforementioned card draw problem, getting two cards helps a lot. Two farseers instead of extra fan of knives and cold blood because of survivability problems (I often end up shadowstepping them just for heals), had to sacrifice one conceal and cold blood, which too often were dead cards anyway. Initially list included mana addict, but it was pure definition of getting killed instantly. I am also thinking of swapping VanCleef for another card draw because he literally gets silenced every time.
Ideally I am looking with as much detailed guide as possible: mulligans, matchups, different situations, do's and dont's. Additionally if somebody has gameplay videos with explanations, that would be awesome as well!
I will be much appreciated for any kind of help! Rogue is my fav class, co I would love to master it's most notable archetype in the game 🙂
