Rogues! They sneak, they stab, they... have never really been a competitive tribe.

But they're so much fun.

Thieves' Guild Enforcer and Robber of the Rich are our Standard-legal payoffs for going Rogue. Most Rogues are cheap and aggressive, which lets them quickly activate Enforcer's power-up mode and keep Robber's goods available. All these tiny attackers also ramp out Embercleave, and with various forms of evasion, at least one backstabber will be able to carry the sword to finish off your opponent through their blockers.

Finally, we have to add blue for Brazen Borrower, the best Rogue in Standard. Guess that means we have to play countermagic. Oh no.

It all adds up to a highly flavorful tempo deck. Standard is wide open right now, so why not give it a try?
