With the start of the Year of the Raven, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan and all Jade Lotus cards have rotated to wild, making Jade Rogue a wild-exclusive archetype. For more information, see Game format.


Jade Rogue is a Rogue deck type. It came into being with the release of the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan expansion. The deck uses various natural tempo cards that Rogue has access to, such as LegacyBackstab, and combines them with the increasing value of Jade Golem cards to create an overwhelming board advantage.

The deck wins by applying sustained pressure throughout the game. In the early turns, it needs to try to stop the opponent from gaining control of the board, then use its wide variety of synergies to start making a game-winning army of minions. The deck can be built with Whispers of the Old GodsN'Zoth, the Corruptor, which has natural synergies with already present cards in the deck like Mean Streets of GadgetzanAya Blackpaw and Mean Streets of GadgetzanJade Swarmer, built aggressively, usually utilizing a light Murloc package with Mean Streets of GadgetzanFinja, the Flying Star, as well as a finisher such as LegacyLeeroy Jenkins or built into a Miracle Rogue-style package with LegacyGadgetzan Auctioneer.
