I play as Nepo on EU (several times legend) and present to you a rogue deck combining two archetypes: Oil Rogue and Miracle Rogue. This hybrid deck outperforms the pure lists for me by far (about 70% win ratio).

It runs the  Gadgetzan Auctioneer draw engine from Miracle Rogue, which has become viable again due to the release of Tomb Pillager. The main kill condition is the Tinker's Sharpsword Oil turn of Oil Rogue.

The deck is hard to play, so do not expect a miracle (pun sadly intended) unless you are used to the playstyle of both Oil Rogue and Miracle Rogue. There are many guides on how to play these decks, so I will focus on card choices and tech slots in this description.

Card Choices / Tech Slots (work in progress, Dec. 17)

Edwin VanCleef is strongest against decks without silence or hard removal. For example, Aggro Shaman has to waste precious burn against him. You can drop him early as 4/4 or 6/6 to pressure your opponent, or you drop him on a late game turn with Conceal to set up the win.

The second copy of Sap is a matter of taste. Like all rogue decks, this one suffers from a turn 7 Dr. Boom, so you might try a Big Game Hunter instead.

The singleton Antique Healbot is enough healing for most games. Unlike other decks that are better off playing two copies, this deck typically draws most of its cards in each matchup, so you will see this one copy a lot. If you would like more healing, it seems better to add a singleton Earthen Ring Farseer for more versatility in how you spend your mana.

The singleton Assassin's Blade is necessary to compete with control decks. In particular, it makes the Freeze Mage and Reno Lock matchups much better (from abysmal to reasonable, but not favored). Reno Lock, Midrange Paladin, and Control Warrior occasionally may hit it with Acidic Swamp Ooze or Harrison Jones.



Please leave comments, questions, and a +1 if you like the deck! If this deck gets a couple of likes, I will add to the guide.
