Sharing my Spell Rogue

Posts: 1,914
Hello! I recently made a spell damage Rogue and have used it to great success, quickly climbing the ladder from rank 19 to 11. It uses no epics or legendaries, and only a handful of rares.

I've since hit a bit of a dead end, what with the constant druids and their ragnaros', but otherwise I can handle most 'average' decks quite well, including aggro and control.

Anyway I thought I'd share it with you guys as a bit of fresh air from all the aggro/miracle decks, and maybe get some feedback.

0
Backstab x2

1
Sinister Strike x2
Voodoo Doctor x2

2
Shiv x2
Eviscerate x2
Kobold Geomancer x2

3
Fan of Knives x2
Dalaran Mage x2
Headcrack x1
Earthen Ring Farseer x2

4
Defender of Argus x2
Gnomish Inventor x2
Ogre Magi x2

5
Assassinate x1
Azure Drake x2

6
Archmage x2

It has amazing card draw and board control + presence. You might be confused about the Voodoo doctors, but I have found that little extra bit of healing can go a long way for standing up against aggro decks, and they're useful vs druids whom you know you need to beat down quick before the late game. Defender of Argus is a god sent for taunt, and Gnomish Inventor is just a great card draw.

I couldn't get it to work at all. Ten consecutive losses. Don't know if I haven't grasped how it's supposed to work, but I couldn't keep my spellpower minions alive long enough to make it worthwhile.

Last game I was round three without beeing able to have a single minion out and he had three, plus a weapon. Can't really see how I'm supposed to compete with that.

I have a spell rouge deck that Ive been playing on and off for a while. got to rank 12 last "season?" (stopped playing for like 3 months.) but I would say definitely add deadly poisons and bladefurry in place of the argus/earthring. the bladefurry DOES benefit from spell damage. having a 4 damage board sweep for 2 mana is insane. also add another head crack, late game stalemates I often win with these. draw/play one card, throw both headcracks and your hero power every turn.

the only other difference between our decks is I play more draw minions. the reason being, I feel I just need bodies on the board for the opponent to worry about while I draw to my direct damage.
