Deathrattle Rogue is a Rogue deck type that aims to overwhelm the opponent with tempo efficient and sticky deathrattle cards.

Deathrattle Rogue is played mainly as a tempo in Standard, using a powerful Deathrattle minion like Mechanical Whelp or Anubisath Warbringer to create huge swing turns. In Wild, due to the access of more powerful Deathrattle and Neutral minions, Unearthed Raptor, and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, it can be played as a control deck (sometimes referred to as Big Rogue), which can also by hybridized with Jade Rogue. The deck can also be played as a combo deck by using Malygos copied from Kobold Illusionist.
