Hearthstone: Rogue Aggro (budget)

Hello world, this is Geek Generation.

Today i’m going to talk about a Rogue aggro deck in Hearthstone. It’s not the deck i’m playing currently because i don’t have all the cards. But it’s something very close to the list i’m putting here. It’s a low budget build with only one rare, SI:7 Agent. SI:7 Agent is such a powerful card that it is a compulsory card for Rogue regardless of whether you’re building an aggro or control deck. So if you like playing with the Rogue class, SI:7 Agent is a good investment at 100 arcane dust.

2 Backstab
2 Cold Blood (40 ea.)
2 Deadly Poison
2 Elven Archer
2 Leper Gnome (40 ea.)
2 Sap
2 Shiv
2 Acidic Swamp Ooze
2 Defias Ringleader (40 ea.)
2 Dire Wolf Alpha (40 ea.)
2 Murloc Tidehunter
2 Raid Leader
2 Shattered Sun cleric
2 S1: 7 Agent (100 ea.)
2 Nightblade

The numbers in parentheses beside the card name is the card’s cost in arcane dust. This deck costs 420 arcane dust.

The deck’s concept is simple. Play lots of cheap aggro creatures to win before the opponent has the opportunity to build his/her critical mass. Ideally, you’ll want to have something to play on turn one. You might consider replacing Acidic Swamp Ooze with Southsea Deckhand to increase the chance of getting a turn one play when going first. The best scenario would be to go second, and play Defias Ringleader or Murloc Tidehunter with The Coin.

Creature trades, very often, should be initiated by the opponent. Your creatures should be hitting the opponent as much as possible. Eg. You have The Coin and you played Murloc Tidehunter (2/1 with additional 1/1) on your first turn. Your opponent plays Kobold Geomancer (2/2). On your turn, instead of activating your dagger and trading with your 1/1, you could consider throwing everything at your opponent.

The reason for this is simple. If you traded the 1/1 and your opponent plays something like Arcane Explosion, you would have only done 2 damage compared to the 4 damage you would have done had you attacked the opponent directly. Sure, in the later scenario he has a kobold remaining, but as long as the creature on the opponent’s side is neither too big nor with Taunt, you’d want to maximize your damage output so you can eventually swing your dagger for the win.

Ok so much for now. Cya again soon.
