Thief Rogue

The closest thing Hearthstone has to multi-classing.

Thief Rogue (or Burgle Rogue) is a Rogue deck type which focuses on acquiring cards from other classes to augment their own. While most of these cards were used in various other Rogue decks, Thief Rogue as an archetype was pushed in The Witchwood with Tess Greymane and Spectral Cutlass, followed by Rise of Shadows. In the Year of the Dragon Standard, these decks rely on Underbelly Fence and Vendetta to push early game tempo, a powered up Spectral Cutlass for damage, healing, and board control, and Tess Greymane as a late-game finisher.

Thief Rogue loses a lot of impact when facing against other Rogues, since many abilities focus on cards from different classes.

Should a Thief Rogue steal a Hero card from another class, their Rogue cards will be considered "from a different class" instead.
