Wild N'Zoth Rogue deck list and guide

The top N'Zoth Rogue deck you can take to the Wild Hearthstone ladder.

For much of its existence, Wild N'Zoth Rogue was a deck that focused purely on controlling the board and fielding a steady flow of Deathrattle minions into play before N'Zoth, the Corruptor was dropped on the board in the late-game. Pretty simple stuff.

While that's still very much a core part of playing the deck, you now get to field a host of Jade Golem-related cards along the way. If you're unfamiliar with this mechanic, the first Jade Golem that's added to the board has a mere 1/1 stats, but the next one has 2/2, the third one 3/3 and so on and so forth.

In our Wild N'Zoth Rogue guide, we're highlighting what we think is the top deck list for this archetype in the current metagame. We've also got some important advice for you on Mulliganing your hand correctly at the start of each match, before wrapping things up with a look at all of the most important combos available to you.

Wild N'Zoth Rogue tips, combos and synergies - Gadgetzan

- Every Deathrattle minion of yours that dies during the game will be summoned back onto the board when N'Zoth, the Corruptor is played.

- The following cards all interact with the Jade Golem mechanic: Aya Blackpaw, Jade Shuriken, Jade Swarmer.

- Unearthed Raptor is able to copy the Deathrattle mechanic off a friendly minion that's already on the board. You've now got solid targets for this at every stage of the game.

- You can used cards like Defender of Argus and Cold Blood to boost up a Deathrattle minion - particularly Nerubian Egg - so they can trade up nicely and still leave a body on the board.

- Bloodmage Thanos increases the strength of all the damage-dealing spells in this deck.

- Playing Small-time Buccaneer will drag Patches the Pirate onto the board for free - but only if this latter card is in your deck, not your hand.
