Q. What are the perks?
A. NO Epics or Legendaries! In fact, I only run 6 rares in the entire deck.
Q. How does this deck work?
A. A symbiotic combination or Spell Power and Taunt minions, coupled with cheap and deadly rogue spells, allows this deck to bring enemies to its knees.
Q. Sounds okay so far, but does it actually work?
A. It's gotten me to Master 2. It works like a charm, and if you add me (caesium#1672) I'd love to show you.
Making the deck:
We rogues are tricks of the trade, doing whatever it takes to win. In this case, that would be spending as little as possible without reducing the potency of the Rogue type.
So, what will you need?
760 Arcane Dust. That's it. That's less than it takes to craft two epics.
What do you need to craft?
2 Headcracks (Fantastic at comboing for massive damage)
2 Azure Drakes (Solid stats, Spell Power, and a card draw. How can you say no?)
2 Argent Commanders (Useful for running into stuff)
2 Defias Ringleaders (This + Coin or Backstab = Two minions for the price of one.)
2 Eviscerates (Great at shredding taunt minions or the enemy hero's face)
What Rogue Cards do you need?
2 Backstabs (Nukes a single minion. FOR FREE.)
2 Shivs (Card draw and potentially awesome damage with spell power)
2 FoK's (Nice board clear potential with Spell Power, and a card draw)
2 Assassinates (The surefire way to kill Deathwings, Divine Shielded minions, etc.)
What Neutral Cards do you need?
2 Kobold Geomancers (Nice little packages of Spell Power)
2 Dalaran Mages (More survivable Spell Power Minions)
2 Ironfur Grizzlies (Protection for your other minions in the early game)
2 Ogre Magi (Bulky minions with spell power)
2 Sen'jin Shieldmastas (Most irritating taunt minion in the game early on. Use it. :D)
2 Lords of the Arena (Awesome damage and a good amount of health to soak hits)
And that's the deck. Please give me any constructive feedback, understand that although this works for me it might not be great for everyone, and please remember: Yes, there are better cards to use. Yes, Edwin VanCleef isn't in this deck. But this is a budget deck. This is how you can pubstomp Paladins, shank Shamans and destroy Druids with minimal cash. For its price, you'll not find another deck this good without farming for years. So good luck, have fun, and pwn teh noobs, k.
