doc Today we look at another Rogue card that like to see your opponents discard pile full, Adroit Marauder.

For the third week in a row, our Thursday Rogue demonstrates the power of your opponent’s discard pile. A 4 cost 3 threshold 2/2/3 with no significant usable ability will quickly find itself in the “lousy common” pile. Adroit Marauder walks a fine line between said pile and a useful position in a deck designed to utilize your opponent’s discard pile. Once your opponent has 10 cards in their discard pile, you suddenly have a superb 5/5/3 character worth your time of day.

Now when I say a deck designed to utilize your opponent’s discard pile, you have to look at 2 aspects. Some Rogues and support cards work best (or work only) when your opponent’s discard pile has “X” number of cards in it. On the other hand, many Rogues like to pull those cards out of the discard pile for your use so you can turn the tides to your favor. Combine the 2 at the wrong time, and you’ll find yourself with a less than useful 2/2/3.

Rogues in general are an intriguing Trade and I’m sure there will be tons of constructed decks designed to tweak and tech them in a hundred different ways. Adroit Marauder will find it’s home there. In Limited, it will likely find it’s niche filling out the last character slot you feel you need for your 50 card deck.

Limited: 2.5/5
Constructed: 4/5
