Water Rogue is a Rogue deck type. It is a variant of Aggro Rogue that came into existence after Patch 7.1. It has a slower early game than most traditional aggro decks, but aims to overwhelm the opponent and initiate a highly aggressive tempo swing with Finja, the Flying Star to put the opponent in a position they can't recover from.
Refined at a very late stage in the life of the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan expansion, Water Rogue exploded onto the scene with great results. The nerf to Small-Time Buccaneer brought this deck ahead of competing aggro decks at the time, and gave it a huge boost in popularity. The deck's ability to cycle consistently with cards such as Swashburglar, Shaku, the Collector, Finja, the Flying Star and even The Curator allows it to easily out-value other aggro decks.
