The new Rogues Gallery deck is terrible!
I mean holy heck, I am like 1 for 30 at mage level against the crappiest deck I can play against. I am just trying to unlock cards. I have done this for other decks to quickly unlock everything but this deck is initially so friggin bad it's nearly impossible to win. lol All the creatures are ridiculously small, they do not come into play all that fast. I was playing the slow ♥♥♥ green deck and it was getting creatures out faster then I could. If you play a burn deck this deck seriously has no chance. If you play a small creature deck it's ♥♥♥ for tat. If you play a big creature deck you get the opponent to like 17 in 7 turns and then he just rolls you for 20 in turn 8. It's frustrating as hell!

I dont agree. I find all the decks quite ballanced and the rouge deck avarage . It all comes down to what decks you play against. It gets a lot better with the unlocks. Just wait and see.

i love rogues for 4ppl... out of curiosity, whats the crappiest deck you can play against with rogues?
it is hard to win if you have no cards unlocked, true, but overall this deck is nice after you unlock around 15 cards and trim it right...

Try some crappy encounters and fully unlock your deck. Then try few different builds and you will find its fun to play. This deck can really overpower your opponent, draw you tons of cards and leave him in top deck mode with followed footsteps on his only creature :D.
{RG}Hashassin{aj} - I finished the revenge campaign with this deck, the hardest deck to play against was Krenko team. Fast pace decks will win pretty often but once you set up your board and control is in your hands (I mean get rid of early rush creatures and snipe the bigger ones) you on the winning side.
Use agony warp, its awesome. Almost always wait till they attack so you can -3/0 one of the attackers and 0/-3 the other. Try sneaking your creatures in via Flight/Mask/helm. Almost each succesful attack mean card more for you and one less for them.
Deck is not terrible and not the greatest too but it is certainly fun to play.

I found it is much much better with the unlocks, and that it works best in 2hg as alot of the cards let you pick who draws and who discards which means you can target a player who is using a dek with alot of removal for example while letting your partner draw cards or yourself when used this way its pretty good.

Restless - that is exactly what I use this deck for. Making liliana player discard his removal is just priceless :)

I find its the best way to play it because in free for all it tends to be difficult to get any strong board presence with it unless they have a really bad start. Most of the time i use the draw engine to fill my partners hand as whatever deck they are running tends to lack card draw in comparison to the rouge deck.

Yep, it acts as a great support deck. Glad someone uses it this way in 2HG.

i really love rogue gallery and i also won some online games against mana mastery ;) its not that bad if you have some draw luck! but you need to unlock all cards first

after I found a an easy encounter to beat with the deck and unlocked enough cards it did get a bit better
