How do you deal with Priests?

Really... as a Rogue what do you do?

EVERY game is the exact same and I think I have lost to Priests maybe 15 times in a row now.

It's just silly, they counter us so hard.

I'm playing a sort of rushdown deck and every game vs Priest goes the same.

Im in my 20's on health, i've managed to get them down to about 12hp on by turn 6/7.

Then they start spam healing themselves, playing defensive and pull out some lame cards.

Usually ends up with them getting Lightspawn or something and Divine Spirit and thats game over.

What the heck do you do?

Its hard to advise on a particular strategy without knowing what cards your running in your deck. I don't find priests any more difficult than Paladins or Druids. I usually play a pirate rush deck which seems to work okay. I struggle far more against mages than priests, hell even warriors give me more of a scare than most priests.

Sap, Vanish? Assassinate or kill with pure damage when it's unbuffed.

Use your dagger to beat those big early game minions, you'll need deadly poison on it though.

Yeah I have started running Sap now.

Still have a problem with Clerics though.. Rouges suck so hard at killing 3hp minions early.

The dagger doesnt kill clerics very well, unless I have poison in which case I need a lucky draw.
