Deck Import

Generally, this deck suffers at the hands of aggro and the faster tempo decks. However, if you’re not against a relatively fast deck, as long as you play your cards right, this deck will make your opponent want to either ask Blizzard for some sort of nerf to KB (direct or indirect), or delete the game out of frustration. Try to focus on buffing your Kingsbane, rather than milling; this deck is pretty good at sMOrcing. 

Wild Kingsbane Mill Rogue Mulligan Strategy & Guide


High Priority (Keep every time)

  • Backstab – Great card vs Aggro, clearing a minion in the early game can save you a lot of health in the long run.
  • Kingsbane or Cavern Shinyfinder – Kingsbane IS this deck, and since you always want to have it as soon as possible, it’s an auto-keep in every matchup. Shinyfinder is sometimes an even better way to get Kingsbane than Kingsbane itself, as it comes with a 3/1 body. Sometimes it’s better to keep him over Kingsbane in the fast matchups, because of the extra body.
  • Elven Minstrel – This card is really good, as it lets you put a small body on the board while drawing whatever you need. If you didn’t get Kingsbane by the time you drop it, there is a solid chance to get Shinyfinder from it, resulting in Kingsbane on the next turn.
  • Eviscerate – Just like Backstab, this card can help clear a minion to save you some life.

Low Priority (Keep only if certain conditions are met)


High Priority (Keep every time)

  • Kingsbane or Cavern Shinyfinder – Just like above, since Kingsbane is a central piece of your deck, you want to have it as quickly as possible.
  • Elven Minstrel – Again, if you won’t draw Kingsbane, it’s another way to do it. If you do draw Kingsbane – it gives you a solid refill and probably more weapon buffs etc.
  • Coldlight Oracle – That’s where the “Mill” part of the deck comes from. Since you aren’t afraid of giving a slow deck more cards, Coldlight is amazing. Not only you will often be able to mill your opponent, but it brings you closer to the cards you need. Make sure to laugh maniacally and sadistically as you watch your opponent overdraw. 

Low Priority (Keep only if certain conditions are met)

  • Deadly Poison – With Kingsbane / Shinyfinder. Unlike against Aggro, you don’t really need Leeching Poison in slow matchups. A slightly buffed Kingsbane is perfect for keeping the board relatively clear in the early game.
  • Goblin Auto-Barber  – With Kingsbane / Shinyfinder. Like above, a buff, but this time with an extra 3/2 body. It’s low cost but very effective. Don’t be afraid to use shadowstep on this card rather than your Coldlights in certain matchups.
  • Sap – Used to get rid of some pesky minions temporarily. Even better if you can play Coldlight Oracle first.

NOTE: If you’re unlucky and not drawing your lifesteal, don’t be afraid to sub in another Leeching Poison, in exchange for a Fan of Knives. There shouldn’t be any other substitutions unless you’re missing cards. 

Shoutout to Stonekeep for his Standard Kingsbane Mill Rogue Guide, from which I adapted for the Wild format, and shoutout to my good friend Mizore for the idea of running Goblin Auto-Barber in this deck.

    How come VileSpine Slayer is not included? I really want to invest on this deck, but making sure to craft the best possible one

      I wouldn’t call this deck particularly the “best one”. Personally I can’t stand playing standard KB decks; I really just don’t like Southsea Squidface at all, and sometimes Naga Corsair feels like a dead drop so I tried to make this deck in wild and this is the result. I’ve mentioned that adding in other minions, like Vilespine, Doomsayer or even Edwin, makes playing Elven Minstrel a lot more inconsistent. With this deck, we’re looking to buff our Kingsbane as much as possible, as fast as possible, whilst cycling through our deck with Coldlight Oracle and stalling with the few stall cards I’ve included.

      As for investing into this deck, if you do decide to invest and craft the cards, you’ll basically have most of the cards needed to play standard Kingsbane anyways if you decide you either don’t like this version or if you want to play Standard. For climbing in Wild, it’s not the best choice, seeing as though this deck suffers terribly against the extremely fast aggro decks (for example, with this deck I’d have a lower win rate against aggro or dude pally than murloc pally or aggro shaman). If you’ve got the dust and plan to play a lot more Kingsbane in the future, crafting this deck isn’t a bad decision. Otherwise, hold out until next expansion and decide whether you want to craft this deck then. I’ll probably end up creating an updated version for the next expansion if Blizzard provide us with more cards to benefit Kingsbane.

    Hi. I would like to know if there is a substitution for Valeera. Thank you 🙂

      There is absolutely no substitution for Valeera in this version of the deck. Valeera is a powerful card for rogue and is definitely something you’d want to craft, not only for this deck but for many others. Without Valeera you lose so much attack power (shadow reflection doubles up on all your remaining buffs).

    Why no edwin or doomsayers?

      This deck is a much faster and (relatively) more consistent version of Kingsbane rogue. Although it’s the same as a regular KB deck in that, against aggro your main focus is to survive (which means this deck is a lot weaker compared to regular due to the lack of control elements), it’s different in that it can generally buff Kingsbane a lot faster from my experience with the deck. You’re not looking to stall the game so that you can buff your Kingsbane, you’re looking to buff it immediately and focus on that solely. As for Edwin, he would be alright in this deck but pulling him from Elven Minstrel’s combo effect rather than a Coldlight, Auto-Barber, Shinyfinder or another Minstrel makes the deck a little less consistent.

    Great deck but I need a replacement for Kingsbane, Valeera, double prep, and doomerang.
