Coldlight Oracle full.jpg

Mill Rogue is a Rogue deck type that aims to stall out the game and mill the opponent, ultimately winning via fatigue damage.

The deck intends to use LegacyColdlight Oracle's Battlecry as much as possible to rapidly overdraw the opponent's deck, whether through bounce effects or creating multiple copies of it. The deck is very strong against other control decks, and is perfect for punishing slow, grindy decks. Mill Rogue is notoriously difficult to play, and doesn't stand a very good chance against faster opponents, but is one of the more rewarding decks to pull off wins with.

With the start of the Year of the Mammoth, Mill Rogue became a Wild deck due to due to the rotation of the key cards Gang Up and Brann Bronzebeard, but has started to see a comeback in the Standard format since Knights of the Frozen Throne thanks to Knights of the Frozen ThroneValeera the Hollow and Knights of the Frozen ThroneShadowblade. The current version of Mill Rogue in Standard often runs the Kobolds & CatacombsKingsbane package alongside it.

With its keystone card, Coldlight Oracle, being sent to the Hall of Fame in the Year of the Raven, Mill Rogue once again became a Wild only deck.
