Keep the board free of taunts. Ive had this 3-step combo used on me a few times and its not OP, its just a damn good play.
1) Its always around turn 8-10, rogue uses Vanish and drops a mob for 2-4 mana.
2) I come back with whatever i had or different depending on the new situation. This is where you need a taunt that WILL survive or youve lost.
3) Rogue then initiates the combo if hes got it, and if its miracle rogue hes burned through a lot of his cards to find it. Sap and Owls help clear the way if there is an issue.
Your math is way off. Leeroy 6/2 with charge. Add 1 cold blood = 10/2 leeroy. Then shadowstep - guess what? Cold blood buff doesn't remain on the card. Now you have a 6/2 leeroy again. Shadowstep again 6/2 leeroy. 22 Damage total. Not 30.Most you can do is 26 with double cold blood and 2 shadowsteps.
Miracle rogue has only 9 minions - 2xSI:7, 2xAuctioneer, 1xBlood mage (or kobold geomancer), 1x acolyte of pain, Leeroy, Nat Pagle, Van Cleef.
With what minions will he do damage to you (if you play either control or aggro) when he uses all of above except leeroy to survive into mid-late game by attacking your creatures, sometimes often forced to use bladestorm / eviscerates / poisons to try to make it to turn 7+.
Stop making stories of always having all the cards needed to keep board control and combo, those situations are very rare, not even top players like Kolento can pull things off when the cards in his hand aren't useful for the board situation etc.
