New Decklist! Hit Legend February 9, 2015
This guide contains strategies that have worked for me. Feel free to take what you like and discard what you do not. If there is something that you are more comfortable with and works for you that differs from this guide, then by all means stick to that shit. Also this is my first Hearthstone guide, so it’s probably going to look like ass. Hopefully there is some useful information that you guys will be able to use.
Mulligans & Short Strategies (Priority from Left to Right):
Mage – Blade Flurry, Backstab, Earthen Ring Farseer, Preparation, Eviscerate, SI:7 Agent, Deadly Poison
Assume the Mech Mage. Control Control Control.
Druid – Violet Teacher, Azure Drake, Earthen Ring Farseer, Sap, Deadly Poison, Eviscerate, SI:7 Agent
Looking for a good curve early. Save saps for big taunts or a huge tempo play.
Paladin – Fan of Knives, Violet Teacher, Backstab, SI:7 Agent, Earthen Ring Farseer, Deadly Poison, Blade Flurry
Best match up for Rogue. Just don’t fuck up.
Shaman – Blade Flurry, Backstab, SI:7 Agent, Violet Teacher, Deadly Poison, Azure Drake, Fan of Knives
A lot of Aggro Shammys recently, so just control like any other aggro match up.
Warlock – Blade Flurry, Backstab, Earthen Ring Farseer, Preparation, Eviscerate, SI:7 Agent, Deadly Poison
There has been a mix of Zoo, Handlock, and Demonlock, so this is by far the hardest mulligan. Zoo = Control. Handlock = Pressure them. Demonlock = Save saps for Void Caller Shenanigans.
Priest – Azure Drake, Violet Teacher, Sprint, Deadly Poison, Eviscerate, Earthen Ring Farseer, SI:7 Agent, Sap
Warrior – Violet Teacher, Sprint, Azure Drake, Earthen Ring Farseer, Si:7 Agent
Make them waste their weapons on 3/3 minions. Win every brawl, hope they don’t keep playing legendaries, and that they don’t gain too much armor. This is a very hard match up, may the burritos be with you.
Hunter – Backstab, Earthen Ring Farseer, SI:7 Agent, Preparation, Eviscerate, Fan of Knives, Shiv
Recently this has become a race match up for me because of all the Face Hunters. You’re not going to win controlling the board perfectly against Face, it’s somewhat of a Race. Barz.
Rogue – Violet Teacher, Azure Drake, Earthen Ring Farseer, Deadly Poison, Eviscerate, Sprint, Preparation
Draw Draw Draw. Get Flurry Value. Careful for Loatheb.
Combos (With Dagger Already Equipped):
TURN 10: Deadly Poison + Deadly Poison + Southsea Deckhand + Preparation + Tinker’s Sharpsword Oil x2 + Blade Flurry = 30 Damage
TURN 7: Deadly Poison + Tinker’s Sharpsword Oil + Blade Flurry = 6 Damage AoE Clear
TURN 9: Farseer/SI:7 Agent + Tinker’s Sharpsword Oil + Blade Flurry = 6/3 Minion + 4 Damage AoE Clear
TURN 4: Preparation + Si:7 Agent + Tinker’s Sharpsword Oil = 6/3 Minion + 4/2 Weapon
TURN 4: Violet Teacher + Preparation + Sap/Eviscerate = 3/5 + 1/1 + 1/1 + Board Clear
TURN 5: Azure Drake + Preparation + Fan of Knives = Draw 2 Cards + 2 Damage AoE Clear
TURN 9: Southsea Deckhand + Tinker’s Sharpsword Oil x2 = 15 Damage + 8/1 Minion + 7/1 Weapon
These are generally most of the combos I find myself using pretty frequently. There are definitely more combos, but the other ones aren’t used as much.
That’s really just about it. I didn’t want to make it too TL;DR, even though it probably is already xD. I hope this helps you guys who are playing the Rough Rogue Life on ladder. It’s a beautiful struggle. Feel free to provide feedback, I only look to improve. And I like burritos. So yeah. Shameless advertising below:
