Magic Decks #10 – Versatile Rogue

Techniques Training LongIn this week’s ‘Magic Decks’, we will be looking at Savjz’s Rogue Deck that dominated the playing field in the Angry Chicken Invitational!

A mid-range Rogue deck, Savjzrogue (Name of the Deck) has numerous counters for almost every possible situation. From Leeroy Jenkins with Cold Blood for the finishing burst, to Blade Flurry and Bloodmage Thalnos for a strong boarder clear; this deck is extremely versatile.

Please note that this deck is before Patch 1.0.0.4458; cards like Sylvanas Windrunner, Novice Engineer, and Dark Iron Dwarf have different texts now.

Let us have a look at the decklist first:

Rogue (10):

  • Backstab x2
  • Cold Blood x1
  • Deadly Poison x2
  • Blade Flurry x1
  • Eviscerate x2
  • SI: 7 Agent x2

Neutral (20):

  • Argent Squire x2
  • Bloodmage Thalnos x1
  • Loot Hoarder x2
  • Novice Engineer x2
  • Harvest Golem x2
  • Tinkmaster Overspark x1
  • Dark Iron Dwarf x2
  • Defender of Argus x2
  • Leeroy Jenkins x1
  • Azure Drake x2
  • Sylvanas Windrunner x1
  • Argent Commander x2

The Rogue cards are generally for minion removal and board control; Deadly Poison + Blade Flurry is a good board clear, while SI: 7 Agent and Eviscerate provides finishing blows or single-target minion removal.

The Neutral cards are all about value; the 2-drop minions recycle themselves, while Harvest Golem, Dark Iron Dwarf, and Defender of Argus ensure stronger trades. Sylvanas Windrunner and Tinkmaster Overspark are counters to strong minions that your opponent may put out, while Leeroy Jenkins is there to provide the finishing blow!

Pros:

  • Versatile
  • Low Mana Curve

Cons:

  • Lose Out to Late-Game Decks
  • Weak against High Health Minions
  • Quite an Expensive Deck

What do you think of the Savjzrogue deck? Ready to hit the big time?
