Mastering Miracle Rogue: Advanced Guide
Tips / Pointers
- Because of the bursty nature of this deck, you need to be aware of the damage you have on the board and the potential damage in your hand (especially the longer the game goes). For example using any potential burst on Turn 6 on a minion that does not need to be removed, can later cost you the game, especially if you don’t draw Gadgetzan Auctioneer.
- Only go for a very big Edwin VanCleef against decks that don’t have any good way of removing him, like Pirate Warrior or Aggro Shaman. Otherwise a simple Hex or Execute will make you lose the game on the spot.
- Sap is a rather complex card to play. Don’t use it on a minion you can easily remove otherwise. Example: Wasting Sap against Druid of the Claw, if you already have another good way at dealing with it, can later lose you the game against Ancient of War. But sometimes using Sap on a smaller minion like the Druid of the Claw can be correct, if you find yourself the next couple of turns busy playing more minions. It all depends on the situation and the cards in your hand.
- In general, the slower the deck you play against is, the more greedy you want to be with your Gadgetzan Auctioneer and draw as many cards as possible. On the other hand the faster the opposing deck is the less greedy you want to be with Auctioneer, and simply drawing 1-3 cards is fine.
