Cheap Warrior Karazhan Standard

35 posts in this topic

hello! I I was searching for a budget warrior deck to allow me to be effective with quests, and rank up a bit.

this deck seemed like a good option and I tried it out.

I'm having a lot of trouble playing the deck. I have huge loss streaks. I read all the info on the deck and tried to understand it, and Im having trouble identifying what I'm doing wrong.

after trading and removing quite effectively in the early game, I almost always lose tempo and end up with a ton of spells in hand that do nothing for me (mostly combo spells and weak removal)

If someone can provide some help or tips it would be great!

thanks a lot in advance! :D

It's combo deck, you survive to one turn kill, and a lot of combo spells is good, you should use your removals more, I guess.

Sjow and Neviilz have been doing quite while at Legend ranks with a variant of this deck that probably deserves its own guide:

This version cycles much more efficiently than ones that include Armorsmith, Bloodhoof Brave or Brawl.

Unfortunately I hate spending dust on rares and I don't have any Commanding Shouts.... tempted to craft them anyway. :(

Seems everyone is playing it after Neviilz got #1 Legend. Kolento streamed it yesterday, Savjz today with Yogg instead of Cruel Taskmaster...

I keep finding this deck peters out after you get your first Worgen.  There is definitely not enough draw power to have the right combo as you have maybe a 5% chance to draw the 30 damage combo without having to use some of those cards on other minions so you don't get overwhelmed.  I just lost a match to a pretty basic Mage deck (I'm only level 20) after having 44HP.  I was able to hit them with a Worgen+Charge+Inner Rage+Cruel Taskmaster to get them to 8HP then he ended up winning because I couldn't draw anything else fast enough to finish him off.

I've mostly played Mage in hearthstone and started to get bored so I decided to change it up and build a warrior deck. I found this and it looked good in theory but I'm having trouble keeping control of the board by midgame (turns 5 and 6) and if I'm holding 4 spells..inner rage, charge etc..in hopes to get my one turn kill..the opponent usually knows what I'm trying to do and throws out taunts by turns 6-8. I'm not too familiar with warriors, I just know how to crush them all the time with my mage..with this deck what would we be aiming for with draws and Mulligans for opening hand? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Haha I rescind my comment, my brain realized that you don't have to play the combo in that order >.<

6 matches 4 loose. Whoever wrote this deck can reach above rank 5 must be out of his mind

The slightly more expensive version of this can very comfortably reach Legend. The deck is very well constructed, despite being a cheaper version. Please let us know what is going wrong, rather than simply blaming the deck. What classes did you play against? When did you die? What did they play? What rank?

This deck is rather difficult to play, as it is a combo deck. You should try other, easier combo decks first to learn how to properly use resources, as your resource usage is very different from "regular" decks (control, aggro etc). Could you please provide a few replays of your games, please?

Lost with this deck 6 time in a row and then deleted it. I was only playing with it at rank 14 but c'thun priest beat it every time.  The combo is cool but it is pure luck if the cards come in.

There is literally no way this deck can lose to Priest. Single Rampage gives you 22 damage(25 with axe) and double Rampage is all the way up to 30 department. They have next to no midgame pressure, and you are pretty safe to attack them and cycle through your deck to combo them out.

Luck based combo is also out of the equation, because this deck utilizes Battle Rage almost to its full potential. If you feel struggling to assemble the combo, try Loot Hoarder in place of Whirlwind.

I've piloted a very similar build up to rank 10 on Asia server, without real trouble, but with some tweaks though. This particular deck. Its creator claims to hit Legend with it. 

Because Rampage part of the combo is pretty mana hungry, it omits this card in favor of more cycling from Loot Hoarder and fair aggression of Korkron Elite, so you can deploy your beatdown plan A and them follow up win a 16-20 damage plan B. Whirlwind isn't that great anyways. Mad Bomber is a tricky one but lokshadow mentions on Hearthpwn it's a flex slot.

Don't give up, do your homework to improve your game play and think a lot about what are you doing and how are you going to win. Nobody said Hearthstone was going to be easy. Worgen shells objectively have power and potential to compete on the highest level.

Even better: Who knows what secrets we'll uncover? The feast of souls begins now! Come, little ones. Come, little ones.

That's why I play C'thun decks.

Triple Emps is pretty easy to deal with for the Wild Pyro / Commanding Shout version of the deck. This version, not so much.

Unfortunately, this deck will run into more problems than the more expensive deck. It's one of the downsides of being limited by dust cost.

Looking over this deck after the Charge nerf it's almost completely unusable as a 1-kill raging worgen deck since charge no longer allows you to attack the enemy hero. Might be time to move this one to the archive?

The deck is now broken - after Charge has been nerfed. Would be great to see an alternative cheap warrior.

Take a look at this one, just replace Leeroy Jenkins by a Reckless Rocketeer and Captain Greenskin by an Arathi Weaponsmith. (Or an Ironbeak Owl/Spellbreaker to hit any annoying late-game taunt and push trough.) It's not optimal, but without these two legendaries it's cheap enough and it will do the job quite well to start laddering.

Thanks for the tip, I'll take a look at it. I'm just sad I already made this cheap deck cause I forget about the nerf until I was playing someone.

A replacement will have to be found first though, as Cheap decks can't be simply archived, unlike other decks (1, 2), or so I was told by Damien :P

A note should at least be made at the beginning of the deck that warns people this may not be as viable due to the Charge nerf. Otherwise people who might not have as much dust could sink their dust into this deck only to find out it doesn't work as intended.

      Hi,
      I've just finished normal with my main 890ilvl (54 points) prot tank and also with my 876ilvl (36 points) druid tank.
      My conclusion is the following:
      The protection warrior is taking way to high damage from almost all abilities except auto-attacks which are low anyway.
      Shield block doesn't work against any of the abilities in nighthold and doesn't help with any magical skills.
      Basically our block even with 2 set items, having aprox 65% crit block chance is useless in Nighthold.
      The fact that our main reduction ability except our 8k-ish armor is useless for all Nighthold bosses. Demo, LS, SW, SR are ok for stack abilities or strong abilities but they couldn't be frequent enough. The damage taken spikes are crazy...just crazy and I've kept IP 40-60% of the damage and decent 90% + bracket dps.
      Paladin tank and warrior tank used to be very similar in damage taken ( normal damage taken ), now paladin is taking 100 millions and warrior is taking 200-400 million on same boss. This is because their damage is percent damage reduction and that works for magical also, but our shield block is irrelevant. Also paladins block spells now.
      In regard to my 876ilvl druid, I've done Guldan solo tanking without any stress. I've done rest of bosses without a problem, only keeping 1-2 stack of ironfur up and using rest of my rage for the 30% reduction every 10 sec, and I won't even start with the amount of cds druids have. These runs showed me how warrior is 0 compared to paladin,druid and DK. 
      I would place warrior on last place under DK, as Shield Block is an irreleant ability in this raid. You can check logs and compare raids from EN and Nighthold. It seems that to be so-so with a warrior tank you would have to maximize versatility and ignore every other stat :|, maybe then you will start reducing some damage from this raid.
       
      I believe that even the first version of warrior tank from start of EN couldn't handle Nighthold as good as paladin,druid can now. They were just op at low level for being able to handle high mythic dungeons at low gear for stacking IP 2 million absorb, but they scaled bad compared to others and that IP would drop in 2 hits on Mythic EN content, making it so-so anywany.
       
      Post below if any ideas pop to mind related to the above problem. Thanks !
