Deck Spotlight: Dreadmaker's Spellsword Rogue
In tonight's deck spotlight, we're going to be taking a look at Dreadmaker's Spellsword Rogue - a deck which revolves around the use of Spell Power to buff your abilities up to deal massive damage combos. Dreadmaker has written an excellent guide to go alongside his deck which is available on the deck page. See the deck below, and a quote from Dreadmaker himself on why he created this deck.
Quote from Dreadmaker
This deck was made as a means of trying to fight back against the current meta. In my experience, it does reasonably well against most things, but doesn't specialize against anything in particular. With a good draw, it's quite good against aggro (Bloodmage Thalnos + Fan of Knives will ruin most aggro decks handily) and it has a lot of excellent removal that scales well into the late game because of all of the spell damage. It can play fast if you get a good draw, and it can also play slow if you're in a control war. I think this deck works as a strong counter to a lot of popular meta decks at the moment, and more importantly, is really, really fun to play!
Yesterday, Blizzard enabled the reconnect feature on the NA servers to allow players who disconnect to hop back into game. There have been some issues with it and it is holding back its release in Europe.
Quote from Blizzard
We are still investigating some issues regarding the reconnect functionality and will enable it for the other regions once those issues are resolved.
Can you plz correct my name? It's kitkatz not trickz
Omg this is NOT Dreadmaker's deck. This is almost the same deck that first had its concept described in this topic: http://www.hearthpwn.com/forums/class-discussion/rogue/6828-hahaha-spellpower
It is very likely that Dreadmaker modified Murtaugh's deck or met somebody who was trying spellpower rogue on ladder and absorbed the concept.
These decks only share 12 cards in common. Just because they both aim to use spell power to buff attacks does not mean one was based on the other.
Even if the decks were the same, Dreadmaker put together a well thought-out guide for the deck and it was worthy of a spotlight. You have to remember, with our limited card pool, a lot of decks are going to be very similar to each other and may have very minor differences. No one can truly own a deck, but they can certainly own a guide that they wrote about it.
I can´t help but laugh every time someone comes out with "omg this deck is a ripoff of X deck!".
I´ve made decks that appear as featured decks (minus legendary cards that I don´t have) several times. It takes more than just picking cards to get a feature. You have to write a well thought strat for your choices and give a reasonable explanation of the deck. Just saying "dude X had a deck just like it on Y tournament" does not mean anyone copied anything.
He who claims to be the 1st one to make a shaman deck with Ragnaros and Lightning Bolt in it, is fooling itself.
You're nuts if you think these are almost the same deck. They only have 12 cards in common, most of which are just in basically every Rogue deck like SI:7, Backstab and Eviscerate. This is NOT even remotely close to what a "stolen" deck looks like.
The links to the NESL decks are broken, they lead to the Katowice decklists.
I'm not 100% sure what happened with the editor. I've reverted the post back to an older version where the decklinks actually work. When I checked them, they were working fine. Very sorry about this.
I wanted to so much, sorry =(
Looks good, reminds me of the deck day9 has been using lately
