This article is a continuation from yesterday. Late Game The late game is generally where Miracle Rogue is either drawing a ton of cards or murdering you. Unfortunately, due to the damage Miracle Rogue can inflict, there’s not a lot of in between unless they simply stall out, but that’s more a hallmark of newer players than crafty veterans. Generally, a Miracle Rogue will draw somewhere in the neighborhood of five to ten cards, hoping to find whatever pieces of the lethal damage combo they’re missing. That typically includes double Shadowstep, Leeroy Jenkins, sometimes a Cold Blood, along with whatever Eviscerates remain. In the following turns, the combo will be unleashed and you’ll die, unless you’re playing: Freeze Mage: Freeze Mage’s Ice Block prevents death for one turn. This can be huge if the rogue in question cannot get the mage down to low health before activating the secret. Control Warrior: This

 

Breaking Down Miracle Rogue, Part I

by Zenstyle on

If you’ve spent any time on ladder in the last two months, you’ve undoubtedly run into the Miracle Rogue deck. It’s a combo setup with aggro potential that utilizes Gadgetzan Auctioneer to cycle through cards until it finds the specific combo pieces it’s looking for. These pieces are generally two Shadowsteps and Leeroy Jenkins. The combination of cards allows a rogue to deal 18 damage, plus whatever weapons and minions they have access to on that turn. In conjunction with Eviscerates, SI:7 Agents, Cold Bloods and other damaging spells and minions, the deck’s agenda is to destroy you in one massive burst of damage. First thing’s first. Similar to Zoo Warlock, sometimes Miracle Rogue just wins. Sometimes the rogue opens up with Gadgetzan Auctioneer, Preparation, The Coin and Conceal. If your deck is slower, that almost assuredly spells death. This is not a situation that can be countered. The best response to it

Our series about Tavern Takeover #2 ends today. In the last week we’ve covered the top 4 players and their decks with Alchemixt at #4, KitKatz at #3, and Gnimsh at #2. Today we finish it out with the winner of it all, StrifeCro. StrifeCro took home $1,500 and also a guaranteed spot in the BlizzCon World Championship qualifier. This wasn’t StrifeCro’s first major win as he took home $8,000 back in March in the SeatStory Cup. StrifeCro has been a player who is consistently near or at the top of the ladder rankings every season since early beta. In this tournament he brought in the Shaman Midrange deck that KitKatz also played, a Druid Ramp deck which he is known for, and of course it wouldn’t complete the top 3 without ANOTHER Miracle Rogue deck. Let’s take a look at these decks with a small description in how they
