Miracle rogue or Gimmik rogue
TL;DR: miracle rogue is still fun and functional if somewhat unstable.
The deck isn't about making an UBER VC to 1 shot your opponent, VC is mostly used as a 4/4 or 6/6 drop to give you board presence or bait silences / removal from opponent (or make a good trade etc).
The deck is about both board control and doing some damage to opponent until you can play auctioneer and draw your deck to finish him off. Shadowstep Leeroy isn't either the only way to win, you will often use shadowsteps for SI:7's to help you with board situation or even get a kill (say opponent is at low hp but has 2 or more taunts you can't get by, no saps etc, leeroy would take 1 taunt out then you would die next turn, but a single agent comboed and 2xshadowsteps it's 6 damage to the face, add a shiv / eviscerate and you have a solid 7 / 10 dmg bypassing taunts etc).
You need to think very carefully about your starting hand vs different opponents (what you keep and what you mulligan, as in what would you need vs a specific class who might run aggro or control etc), when to play your coin, poisons, assassin's blade, blood mage, auctioneers etc.
I highly suggest to watch kolento's stream, he plays a lot of Miracle rogue at legendary rank, and he's very vocal about his plays, explaining why he did X or Y in a given situation, and how he analyzes and predicts the game flow for next turn etc.
Hope it helps!
PS: sure there will be frustrating games vs both control and aggro decks when you get a bad hand even after mulligan and there's nothing you can do to turn it around, but the good thing about Miracle, is to never give up, even when things look grim you can pull of a "Miracle" and 100-0% your opponent from 30 hp :)
Just had versused a priest a few minutes ago who put up Defender of Argus on a 'stolen' questing adventurer making it 7/7 and a Harvest Golem at 4/3. Got rid of both, and could've went for game, but guess what... 3/7 Tazdingo, just barely lost =/.
Miracle rogue is pretty powerful with the massive card draw you can get with auctioneer. And if you use the leeroy +ss + ss combo you can do some massive damage right away. (Can use Mana Golem for poor mans version).
But ye, the Miracle Rogue has a high skill cap too it and you need to play everything just right to pull off the "Miracles". But when you do boy does it feel good.
