Surprisingly effective.

 

Although it's an OTK deck, keep in mind you don't have to OTK. The option is here, but most of the time, you'll only need 22-24 damage or even  only 16 damage against deck with no healing

 

So this is how the combo works for people who haven't seen it in other rogue decks : you get discount from Efficient Octo-bot on Tenwu of the Red Smoke and Alextrasza the Life-Binder

Then you use Alextrasza + tenwu (on alextrasza) + Shadowstep (on tenwu) for a killing blow

If you didn't get your discount from octobot, you can also use one shadowstep to get an immediate two mana discount for later.

here's your reach depending on the number of discount

0 or 1 :  8 damage

2 : 16 damage

3 : 24 damage

4 (and both shadowstep saved up) : 32 damage

You can also try to discount Wicked Stab (Rank 3) for additionnal reach. The theorical max burst from this combo without generating cards is 44 damage. In theory you could also get 3 more from the wife, and even more from randomly generated cards.

The rest of the deck is just here to waste your opponent's time while you set up your combo. You can use Pen Flinger or Prize Plundererto activate Octobot.

 

Vanessa VanCleef is a flexspot, feel free to replace her with anything depending on your need. I like Vanessa VanCleef personaly, you can usualy grab a few useful OP tool from your opponent's deck.

 

Here's a few recommendation for the most common match-ups :

PALADIN :

learn how to play around Oh My Yogg! and Galoping Savior [/card]. Ironicaly it's usualy safer to use a 2 mana cost spell to proc it. Don't be conservative with your ressource, keep him out of the board with [card]Blackjackstunner (best against early buffs cards). You usualy don't need the otk, so feel free to get your discounts on other cards.

Face HUNTER:

Same thing really, spend your ressource and delete everything.

Early Octobot will always work, hunter can't deal 4 damage early

PRIEST :

Start slow, focus on drawing at first. If it's rally priest, Blackjack stunner is a great tool to delay the combo. if it's control priest, just beware of Mindrender Illucia a good priest will time it to stop your combo.

This is why you'll need to put pressure midgame. One of the greatest tool to beat those priests is  Shadowjeweler Hanar; protect it as long a possible to force the priest to waste ressources on the secrets and to give you more time to set up the OTK. Save Octobot to make sure those discounts land, you need at least 3 discount.

 

WARLOCK:

Same as priest, but draw even more. You're on a clock vs Tickatus. You should be able to draw your combo before he gets to play ticketus.

you should have the board most of the game. Don't overcommit, play just enough to stop him from playing jaraxus on an empty board.

Blackjack Stunner can get some lucky burn since warlock usualy have a lot of cards in hand.

ROGUE

Mirror? good luck Hanar, Kazakus and alextraza are the key, but you could also die pretty much if you let your opponent have the board.

If it's another rogue, treat it like an aggro deck. Don't be conservative, you might even be able to finish him with just one alextraza (or two over two turns with a shadowstep, since rogue has no healing besides alexstraza herself)

OTK demon hunter :

Easy, you draw faster and you're more annoying : you should win.

Aggro Demon hunter : rely on secrets, keep in mind of the Green rag when mathing your opponent's reach

Deathrattle demon hunter : surprisingly difficult

SPELL MAGE :

Hanar again is a key player, use alextrasza on healing if needed. If  he doesn't play Deck of lunacy, is reach should be limited. And you should be able to draw faster than him if he plays C'htun.

RUSH WARRIOR

Save your blackjack stunner for buffed minions to remove the buff. Ironicaly, you should try to be the agressor here. Delete his rush synergy minions as soon as they hit the board.

 

While I was climbing, the hardest match-ups were, ironicaly, the less common ones. Spell damage mage, deathrattle demon hunter. You should beat the most common decks on ladder though if you know what you're doing. Be flexible depending on the deck you're facing.
