Welcome to the Rogue forum! We made this thread to be a friendly place in the tavern where new players can come to learn more about the Rogue class. Here we will gather guides created by the community designed to help Rogue players, and we are always on the lookout for more!

Below are a couple of them to get you started, but if you know of any others, or if you are planning on writing one yourself, let us know! While these are not the only ways to build a deck, they are a good place to start if you have questions about becoming a Master of Disguise, or who your local SI:7 Agent is.

Woahhhhh that Rouge Deck Guide

"Rogues can do OK in the Arena format as long as they remember what the class is all about, damage. Rogue decks, especially in the Arena work best if they are all about rushing to do as much damage to you opponent as quickly as possible."

What kind of advice is this? An arena deck cannot be agro every single time! Where are the underlining principals of board control and card advantage and staying on curve and efficient trading? This is probably the worst arena advice for any new player trying to learn the game.

Health is a resource. It makes no difference whether you win with 5 health remaining or 30.
Instead the player should be focused on obtaining value with his or her minions, not brainlessly "hitting your opponent directly and ignoring his minions as much as you can with yours."

Of course this is only arena advise, a deck built on aggro and tempo will follow different rules.
