Rogue


Info

Strategy

Rogues have easy access to weapons in the form of their Hero Power Dagger Mastery, which creates a simple Wicked Knife that can be used to cheaply remove weaker minions or be buffed up with Deadly Poison to help against stronger foes. Unlike other damage-based hero powers, Wicked Knife can be saved for the following turns without having to spend mana then.

Many of the class cards utilize the combo mechanic, granting them a special effect if another card is played beforehand. This can be for more damage (Eviscerate and Perdition`s Blade) or an addition effect (SI:7 Agent and Kidnapper). Other class cards such as Conceal will grant Stealth to friendly minions. This can be incredibly useful if you need to protect certain key minions from being targeted, such as Edwin VanCleef or Violet Teacher. The Rogue also has a cards that will put enemy minions back into the opponent`s hand for a cheap cost, such as Sap and Vanish.

Strategy

The rogue class has a number of different play styles. One of the main threats a rogue presents is the ability to do a lot of damage quickly, using Combo Combo is an ability where the stated effect occurs if the card is not the first one played during the turn. Cards with this ability are limited to the rogue class. The term "combo" is hearthstone effects together with the rogue`s Hero Power weapon to do surprising burst Burst damage or burst potential refers to a player s ability to deal a large amount of damage in one or two turns, allowing a player to finish off a previously damaged opponent, or deal an damage.

Combo: +4 Attack instead."I m cold blooded, check it and see!"See this card on Hearthpwn data page] hearthstone , as well as their various direct damage spells.

A Combo card is a card that has an additional effect if it is played after any other card. These effects can range from additional damage to drawing another card. In general Combo rewards the use of cheap cards (primarily spells) and allows the rogue to deal large amounts of damage in a single turn. Synergistic rogue cards include Preparation Preparation Set: Classic Type: Spell Class: Rogue Rarity: Epic Cost: 0 Abilities: Modify cost Tags: Spell-related The next spell you cast this turn costs (3) less."Be Prepared" - Rogue MottoSee this card on Hearthpwn data hearthstone , Backstab Backstab Set: Basic Type: Spell Class: Rogue Cost: 0 Abilities: Deal damage Tags: Damaged-related Deal 2 damage to an undamaged minion.It s funny how often yelling "Look over there!" gets your opponent to turn around.See this hearthstone and Counterfeit Coin Counterfeit Coin Set: Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Type: Spell Class: Rogue Rarity: Rare Cost: 0 Tags: Mana-related Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only.There is something funny about this coin… can t quite put my finger hearthstone .

Rogues are exceptional at using single target damaging abilities on both minions and heroes with cards like Eviscerate Eviscerate Set: Classic Type: Spell Class: Rogue Rarity: Common Cost: 2 Abilities: Combo, Deal damage Deal 2 damage. Combo: Deal 4 damage instead.There is a high cost to Eviscerating your opponent: It takes a long hearthstone , Shadow Strike Shadow Strike Set: Whispers of the Old Gods Type: Spell Class: Rogue Rarity: Common Cost: 3 Abilities: Deal damage Tags: Damaged-related Deal 5 damage to an undamaged character.It s like a backstab, only from the front. hearthstone , and Headcrack Headcrack Set: Classic Type: Spell Class: Rogue Rarity: Rare Cost: 3 Abilities: Combo, Deal damage, Return to hand Deal 2 damage to the enemy hero. Combo: Return this to your hand next turn.When all else hearthstone , as well as minion Battlecries like SI:7 Agent, Dark Iron Skulker and Undercity Valiant. This aspect can be augmented with decks focused on increasing Spell Damage which allows rogues to whittle down the enemy hero with strengthened spells while also buffing weak spells like Backstab Backstab Set: Basic Type: Spell Class: Rogue Cost: 0 Abilities: Deal damage Tags: Damaged-related Deal 2 damage to an undamaged minion.It s funny how often yelling "Look over there!" gets your opponent to turn around.See this hearthstone and Fan of Knives into formidable removal cards. Rogues also possess many single target hard removal like Assassinate, Vilespine Slayer, and Blade of C`Thun to push aside whatever huge minion the opponent plays to block their way while keep them defenseless as their health is chipped away at.

The rogue Hero Power Dagger Mastery provides a constant opportunity for low damage removal or hero damage, but can be improved with cards like Deadly Poison Deadly Poison Set: Basic Type: Spell Class: Rogue Cost: 1 Tags: Weapon-related Give your weapon +2 Attack.Rogues guard the secrets to poison-making carefully, lest magi start incorporating poison into their spells. Poisonbolt? Rain of Poison? hearthstone , Buccaneer, and Goblin Auto-Barber to much higher levels, in turn setting up the possibility of a Blade Flurry for high damage removal. Rogues can also equip a range of other weapons, such as Assassin`s Blade, Perdition`s Blade and Deadly Fork.

The rogue weapon theme ties into another: Pirates. Rogues have access to the only class-specific cards for the Pirate minion type, with One-Eyed Cheat, Buccaneer, and Luckydo Buccaneer as well as the synergistic Shady Dealer. The constant availability of weapons to the rogue fits well with the weapon-dependency of Pirate cards like Small-time Buccaneer, Southsea Deckhand, Dread Corsair and Captain Greenskin, although arguably not as well as that of the warrior.

Return effects are another theme of the rogue class, allowing their minions to slip away to restore themselves, or forcing the opponent`s minions to retreat back into the hand. Shadowstep, Gadgetzan Ferryman, Anub`ar Ambusher and Anub`arak are friendly examples, while Sap, Vanish and Kidnapper offer other options. These effects can be useful for stalling the opponent, or allowing the rogue to benefit multiple times from useful Battlecries.

A theme that has been added to Rogues in more recent expansions is the ability to steal the power of their opponent`s class, in the form of gaining cards from the opponent`s class such as Burgle, Undercity Huckster, Swashburglar, Shaku, the Collector, and Hallucination. Rogues also have cards that synergizes with cards not of their own class, like Ethereal Peddler and Obsidian Shard, although it does little to help in mirror matches.

Infamous for striking from the shadows, Stealth is a minor rogue theme, with minions like Master of Disguise, Mini-Mage and Ogre Ninja, as well as Conceal. Shadow Sensei can buff these minions while they`re hiding to make their first strike deadlier.Patient Assassin combines Stealth with the Poisonous effect, another minor rogue theme, also seen on Pit Snake and Envenom Weapon.

Rogue is also the only class able to generate The Coin, normally only available at the start of each match, through cards like Cutpurse and Tomb Pillager. Trade Prince Gallywix provides a similar spell in Gallywix`s Coin and Counterfeit Coin Counterfeit Coin Set: Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Type: Spell Class: Rogue Rarity: Rare Cost: 0 Tags: Mana-related Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only.There is something funny about this coin… can t quite put my finger hearthstone functions the same as the Coin except they can be added to the deck.

Background

For rogues, the only code is the contract, and their honor is purchased in gold. Free from the constraints of a conscience, these mercenaries rely on brutal and efficient tactics. Lethal assassins and masters of stealth, they will approach their marks from behind, piercing a vital organ and vanishing into the shadows before the victim hits the ground. Rogues can dip their weapons in paralyzing toxins that render foes unable to defend themselves. These silent stalkers wear leather armor so they can move unencumbered, ensuring that they land the first strike.

With the rogue⃢₀ₙs poisons and speed, the first strike is often the last step before the killing blow.

Hero Power

Usually Hero Powers can be used once per turn and hearthstone are unique abilities, specific to each class. Hero Powers cost 2 mana, and can be used once per turn Hearthstone takes place in turns. Each turn gives a player the opportunity to act. At the end of each turn, play is passed back to the other player. A round describes one turn for each .

The rogue Hero Power offers some ability to maintain board control, as it allows your hero to destroy 1-Health minions. This allows you to establish control and force them to waste valuable removal Removal is the term used to refer to the elimination of minions from the battlefield. Hard removal describes cards and effects that can neutralize minions regardless of most defenses, such as high Health or Divine hearthstone early on. This can also allow you to keep your minions alive longer, adding value. Be careful though, don`t take your own Health too low attacking minions or you can tip the advantage into a disadvantage very quickly!

Examples:

Countering a rogue

  • Equipment destruction such as Acidic Swamp Ooze or Harrison Jones to prevent massive damage output from the rogue`s Assassin`s Blade and Dagger Mastery.
  • Units that make it difficult for the Rogue to attack you in the face directly, helpful effects include Divine Shield and Taunt.
  • Bait the use of board clearing abilities such as Assassinate with your second or third strongest minion so that you can safely summon your strongest minions.
  • Having a few Spellbreakers can be incredibly effective against a rogue deck because of their affinity towards minions such as Bloodsail Raider.
  • Try to play many small minions rather than fewer large ones, since most rogue removal spells are single target.
  • Rogues are one of the more fragile classes, so they will have a difficult time stabilizing when they have taken heavy damage early on.

Main Synergies

Backstab, Preparation and The Coin are very useful combo activators, as they both cost 0 Mana to play.

Common Weaknesses

Since rogue uses weapon frequently, she is more likely to lower her life quickly. Used healing minions to offset this.

Example Decks

Rogues now commonly play only one type of deck: oil rogue. Oil rogues use Preparation in conjunction with powerful spells to gain tempo with less mana. It has high burst damage and relatively reliable card draw.
