The domination of ladder by the currently overpowered tempo rogue lists has lead to the rise of control warrior and bomb warrior. After my tempo rogue winrate dropped to below 60% I decided to switch to a more fun deck to go from rank 2 to legend. I would strongly recommend running a more meta tempo rogue list if below rank 5 where the meta is more undefined - this deck strongly relies on matching slower, control decks but I also had a lot of success playing it against bomb hunters, as well as paladin/priest/shaman/druid (on the odd occasion I matched them).

This deck took me from rank 2 to legend with a 66.7% winrate  (18-9). This is the final version of the decklist and definitely the most fun. From the original list I tried inclusions such as waggle pick (removed because of the meta.... every deck has Harrison jones/acidic swamp ooze/weapons project) which meant the pirate package wasn't as high value allowing me to run Gral, the shark. Which although - certainly not overpowered, can be very strong in slower matchups thanks to deck dilution and pulling a potential alexstrasza/nomi/portal overfiend.

I enjoy the possibility of multiple win conditions with this deck, depending on the matchup and your hand you can go for board control + burst to try and get a quick win with leeroy + shadowsteps and evis. Nomi + shadowstep after a myras is an instant win in most matchups. Elysiana helps make the bomb warrior matchup impossible to lose, simply play it when there are enough bombs to be close to lethal then use a saved up togwaggles scheme on a big minion - alexstrasza will prevent defeat from further bombs. The inclusion of multiple ways to win from an empty deck (elysiana/nomi) allows for early myras without the risk of drawing badly which gives the deck huge high roll potential.

This archetype is certainly not optimised - very small sample size of games - but I had a lot of fun with the deck and have proved it's legend viable. Was placed around 3000th legend on EU. I intend to continue running and optimising this deck to see how it does in legend and whether its top 100 viable. If this post gains any popularity I would be willing to post a mulligan guide and am happy to answer any questions in terms of card choices/inclusions.

Due to the many parts and win conditions to this deck there are many possible card substitutions, feel free to ask for suggestions!
