The deck list here is built accordingly to my style, but I am here to teach you how to tweak the oil rogue to your style so that you can comfortably climb the ladder, in the current meta.
The reason why I say that is because the meta is always changing and the oil rogue is a control combo deck where you rely on the Tinker’s sharpsword oil to finish our opponent and we usually combo this with the minions on the board and Blade Flurryto deal over 20 points of damage.
But if we were to waste our win conditions, then we need to know our deck inside out and know just how much damage is left in our deck to finish off our opponent. At the very least, if you know you don’t have enough damage, you can at least concede early and move on to the next game rather than playing it out.
GAMEPLAY VIDEO - IT HAS BUTTONS TO SKIP BETWEEN MATCH-UPS AND DECK TECH :)
SUBSTITUTIONS – I will use my decklist as the standard
- Some players feel that Southsea Deckhand is fairly easy to remove, but I love the card since you can easily combo it with tinker’s sharpsword oil to deal instant damage for lethal.
- In some circumstances, you will need to play Southsea deckhand as a body to gain board control, which is quite ineffective
- If you value the board control over the instant damage, you can choose any of the substitutions since they are stickier creatures that are solid against either match-ups and stay long enough on the board to be comboed with Tinker Sharpsword Oil
- These are just cheaper substitutions for Bloodmage Thalnos and it all depends if you value card draw or spell damage more
- I recommend the spell damage!
- Earthen Ring Farseer is excellent against the aggro match-up, however some would rather run a stickier creature in this slot to fair better against the control match-ups as well
- You can replace one Earthen Ring Farseer with any of the subs, but I recommend another 3 drop to maintain the curve
- 2 Tinker’s sharpsword oil is sometimes clunky, so some prefer to replace one copy with Dr. Boom
- Dr. Boom is excellent for immediate board pressure
- Violet teacher is a complete menace against the aggro match-ups, but can easily be removed from the control match-ups
- To fair better against control match-ups, some players substitutes one copy for a piloted shredder
- Loatheb guarentees board control so that you would have at least one creature on the board to combo it with tinker’s sharpsword oil to potentially push for lethal
- The other substitutes are quite adequate as well if you do not have loatheb since they are very sticky and can last longer than one turn to be comboed with tinker’s sharpsword oil
- Emperor Thaurissan is the new addition to this deck, however as power as he can be, he is not required to be in this deck because the deck is already solid without it. At times, since there are a lot of Grim Patron Warriors, I tend to use Harrison Jones.
- A lot of people preferred antique healbot in order to have a higher success rate against hunters, however people like Hyped believes that heal is not necessarily that good against aggressive match-ups, but card like sludge belcher and piloted shredder that have a higher board pressure does.

The Combos are written by RyzenTV, and although there are A LOT more combos, these are the most commonly used! I suggest learning the combo yourselves, since it allows you to adapt to various of situations and not attached to just these combos.
TURN 10: Deadly Poison + Deadly Poison + Southsea Deckhand + Preparation + Tinker's Sharpsword Oil x2 + Blade Flurry = 30 Damage
TURN 7: Deadly Poison + Tinker's Sharpsword Oil + Blade Flurry = 6 Damage AoE Clear
TURN 9: Farseer/SI:7 Agent + Tinker's Sharpsword Oil + Blade Flurry = 6/3 Minion + 4 Damage AoE Clear
TURN 4: Preparation + Si:7 Agent + Tinker's Sharpsword Oil = 6/3 Minion + 4/2 Weapon
TURN 4: Violet Teacher + Preparation + Sap/Eviscerate = 3/5 + 1/1 + 1/1 + Board Clear
TURN 5: Azure Drake + Preparation + Fan of Knives = Draw 2 Cards + 2 Damage AoE Clear
TURN 9: Southsea Deckhand + Tinker's Sharpsword Oil x2 = 15 Damage + 8/1 Minion + 7/1 Weapon
