Hi I’m Sipiwi. I have played rogue from the day I started playing Hearthstone. It has helped me reach Legend 3 times and has been fun to play all the way.
It is very easy to make rogue fit in this meta and after Midrange hunter has become popular Tempo rogue has gained popularity with good results.
I enjoy playing Miracle rogue and I thought it would be possible to change the deck in a way that would be as strong as Tempo Rogue because many of the key cards in Tempo rogue are also in Miracle rogue. I changed 2 things that has proven to be great. I played this Miracle rogue deck all the way to Legend #32.
Before the guide really begins I want to state that this deck is hard to play. I wouldn’t recommend it if you arent familiar with how most decks work, but it is very fun to play and different from many other decks.
The Changes And Results
I really wanted Mad Bomber
A tough decision was made and I figured out that Assassin's Blade
The Mad Bomber
Pros and cons
The deck scores much better against every kind of aggro deck and to-the-face deck. The reason behind this is pretty obvious if you look at the 3 new cards in the deck.
The deck scores a little worse against Control Warrior, but that has always been a losing matchup. Assassin's Blade
The way this deck usually wins is by bursting the opponent with Leeroy Jenkins
That’s is all this deck is about – burst, card draw, and delaying. All of the cards play at least one of these roles. The main tool to cycling your deck is Gadgetzan Auctioneer
Some good tips are: Make sure you have spells when you draw Gadgetzan Auctioneer
The Role of the Cards
• The Backstab
• The Preparation
• The Shadowstep
• The Cold Blood
• The Conceal
• The Deadly Poison
• The Blade Flurry
• The Eviscerate
• The Sap
• The Bloodmage Thalnos
• The Mad Bomber
• The Perdition's Blade
• The Coldlight Oracle
• The SI:7 Agent
• The Leeroy Jenkins
• The Gadgetzan Auctioneer
Mulligan and Matchups
You should mulligan for cards that let you survive as long as possible.
Don’t be greedy and keep Auctioneer against a class that could be aggro etc. If you survive long enough you will draw the cards you need. It is hard to give a solution that tells you how to mulligan so the mulligans agaisnt every class in this guide will just be general guide lines.
You will often draw combos like Preparation
The Standard Mulligan Recipe
The standard mulligan is to search for Backstab
A pretty good matchup. Against hunter you should use the mulligan recipe. If you have some of the cards you want before you mulligan you can keep Leeroy Jenkins
Against hunter you want to figure out what kind of hunter you are facing. Midrange hunter and Huntard use different early game cards so you should be able to tell pretty fast.
The Huntard matchup is all about who bursts who first. Two things matter here. The first one is to kill your opponent and the second one is to delay him.
Against Midrange hunter you want to play like against most aggro. You want to deal with his threats until you can burst him. One thing to note is that Deadly Shot
Aggro warlock is an easy matchup and Handlock is pretty tough. Against warlock you want to use the mulligan recipe too. The one exception is Coldlight Oracle
I keep Coldlight Oracle
Against Aggro warlock you want to deal with their stuff until you can win. Consider delaying your board clears for a turn. Against Handlock you want to get him low as fast as possible, but think about if you can deal with Molten Giant
A good thing about facing Handlock is that you are safe the first turns so you can set up a nice Gadgetzan Auctioneer
The Control Warrior matchup is hard. You want Gadgetzan Auctioneer
Minions are not nice to have in the beginning because they are easily removed (don’t just mindlessly mulligan away a SI:7 Agent
If you use Shadowstep
I haven’t faced Rush warrior once with this deck to be honest. It is very rare. But I think the matchup is hard, since you have no taunts. If I ever face it I would mulligan to burst him before he bursts me (play it like against Huntard)
An easy matchup. Priest is reactionary so you have all the time you need to setup your kill.
I only think I lost one priest matchup this season and he thoughtstole Leeroy Jenkins
Mulligan for card draw and Gadgetzan Auctioneer
Mage decks are usually aggro. The matchup is a bit harder than Aggro warlock because they can burst you with spells at any time. Use the mulligan recipe and play like against Aggro Warlock.
An even matchup. Use the mulligan recipe, but keep Sap
Druids are usually pretty slow, but don’t let them get a strong board. You will just lose to all of the taunts and damage dealers. Don’t die to Force of Nature
Aggro paladin is a good mathup. You have a lot of cards that are good at destroying divine shields. You should use the mulligan recipe, but consider keeping a Shiv
Try to keep the aggro paladin’s board clear Healadin is an okay matchup. You can do you thing for the first turns. The hard part is to kill him because he can heal so much.
It is hard to oneshot him, but if you force him to spend a turn healing you can probably kill him in 2 turns. Equality
This matchup is very good for you! Nah. Mirror matchups are all about the draws, but against Miracle rogue this deck has a minor disadvantage. It is still almost 50-50. Leeroy Jenkins
Against Tempo rogue this deck does ok. It has a lot of answers the first turns, but Argent Commander
Against Rogue I mulligan depending on the cards I get. If I have some answers for Tempo rogue I will keep Leeroy and Gadgetzan, but if I don’t I throw them away and use the mulligan recipe.
Shaman is a good matchup. It doesn’t have a lot of early game threats and the overload mechanic makes it hard for them to play offensively. Shaman has a lot of removal that is basically dead cards against Miracle rogue. Keep Gadgetzan Auctioneer
Before you stealth your Gadgetzan Auctioneer
How to Change With the Meta
I have 2 different Miracle rogue decks. I fell in love with the one in this guide and I can’t really see how the meta should make me change to the other version. Maybe a lot of Handlock and Control Warrior. My other deck is great against control.
I use King Mukla
Control often has a lot of cards in their hands giving these changes huge potential. There are a lot of cards the has to be in the deck making it hard to change with the meta, but few changes can have huge effect as I found out with this deck. It is hard to predict what the next smart change will be, but Coldlight Oracle
I hope this guide can inspire you to play one of the most fun and challenging decks in Hearthstone.
