The silliest burgle rogue yet

    You don't see something as gloriously weird as Maestra of the Masquerade without at least trying to make practical use of it beyond just bamboozling the opponent at the start of the game. The dream is to somehow exploit it with Tess Greymane, but that has problems with not being able to run anything other than rogue and neutral cards, so you'll quickly return to a normal burgle rogue except for being able to get a couple of extra cards from Maestra's pretend class with things like Wandmaker

    That's fine, but not exciting.

    Then it hit me. The most glorious little unused meme card that turns our hopes for a meme into reality. Behold, Wyrmrest Purifier!

    Originally intended for Pure Paladin, now used to make a genuine, bona fide dual-class deck. No need to waste time generating cards, just transform all your neutrals at the start! And if you don't draw the purifier early, no worries because you can make a fully competent deck that just happens to run Maestra, Tess and 2x Purifier.

    Will it be good? No. But is it the sort of thing that I keep playing HS for? Absolutely!

    What would this be called? Masquerade Rogue? Infiltrator Rogue? Not a Rogue? Disguise Rogue? A deck this silly isn't worth making if it doesn't come with a fun name :)

    Carrion, my wayward grub.

    Hmm, Masquerade Rogue works well, but I'm going to be classy and classical (puns absolutely intended) and call it Janus Rogue, after the Roman god Janus who had 2 faces.

    There are so much opportunities in wild and Wyrmrest Purifier is one of the best options for that kind of deck for sure.

    But I will try my chance on Standard. Made already a deck around Maestra of the Masquerade;

    Anyone can add/change some cards or suggest some.

    Maybe it is not wise to not use any rogue cards than Maestra of the Masquerade and may be it seems stupid to build a deck without any spells but it feels like i can find spells from neutral cards since there are a lot of spell discoverer/finder cards such as Venomous Scorpid or Pandaren Importer.

    Honestly I find it super cool that any card is able to make what is essentially just an all neutral deck with a Bloodfen Raptor a fun idea. It perfectly demonstrates that there is a lot more to enjoying the game than just winning. With that in mind, it's not at all unwise to leave out rogue cards, since a basis of your enjoyment is maintaining the pretense of not playing rogue :)

    Yeah, you are absolutely right. Winning is always second or third part in my point of view for card games.

    I've just said that i want to try my chance on Standard first. It is another deckbuilding challenge for me since wild has wider options, you know. :)

    Also, thanks for openning this thread so I could borrow your Wyrmrest Purifier idea which is brilliant and which I didn't consider yet. I must try a double class Rogue deck as soon as possible. :)
