By gena479 on 0 0
Just like rogues in WoW, Rogues in Hearthstone are good at sneak combos. This deck applies for many situations. More cards means more advantage for Rogues , so I choose Coldlight Oracle, Fan of Knives, Cult master and Shiv. With these cards Rogues will make continuous attacks.
Backstab x2: Deal 2 damage to an enemy minion.
Wisp x2 (1/1)
Shiv x2: Deal 1 damage. Draw a card.
Cold Blood x2: Give a minion +2 Attack. Combo: +4 Attack instead.
Headcrack x1: Deal 2 damage to the enemy hero. Combo: Return this to your hand next turn.
Sap x2: Return an enemy minion to its owner's hand.

Defias Ringleader x2 (2/3): Combo: Summon a 2/1 Defias Bandit.

Vanish x1: Return all minions to their owner's hand.
kidnapper x1 (5/3) : Combo: Return a minion to its owner's hand.
Mana cost 1-3
In T2, you can use a combo of Wisp or BackStab + Defias Ringleader. Defias will summon two 2/1 mobs so that you will have 5 attack with 3 minions. It will give you big advantage. And if you have the coin you can use Defias Ringleader at T1. Wisps, which cost no mana, will help you trigger the combo.
Mana cost 4-6
This is an important phase for Rogues. We can cast low cost cards to expand the minion team and take the advantage of number. Rogue’s skill is physical attack which cause less counterattack. So let heroes to trade the opinions minion will let more minions survive. Here is a combo: Raging Worgen x1 + Shiv + Cold Blood + Cold Blood =24 attack. Raging Worgen have enrage effect and plus 1 attack. 2 Cold Blood will improve 8 attack. Shiv will make 1 attack and give you one card which also active windfury effect and the double the attack.
Mana cost 7-8
If you did not win in last phase, this phrase will be a little tough for you. You should use Sap, Vanish and Kidnapper to push back rivals’ minions and mess up his/her combo. And find a chance to commit attack. I recommend a combo of Leeroy Jenkins + Cold Blood. Leeroy Jenkins can summon two 1/1 whelps and cold blood will add 2 attack for you. So you will have 10 attack which equal one third health of a hero.
