2. Strategy

Our Low Budget Warlock Aggro/Rush Deck offers an extremely aggressive, minion-heavy gameplay that can easily put immense pressure on any opponent.

Regardless of what deck you play against, your board value is everything. You should always strive towards efficient minion trading and slowly building up your advantage on the board.

The early game is extremely important, and you should always play it as efficiently as possible and stick to your Mana curve. Young Priestess will generate a lot of value over the course of time, which is why you should always attempt to play it when you have another minion on board, especially against decks with offensive Hero Powers.

Since the deck consists mainly of minions, Knife Juggler will generate a lot of pressure if not dealt with immediately, and just like Young Priestess, you should attempt to protect it.

Voidwalker and Shieldbearer may seem like an odd choice for an aggressive deck, however they will delay your opponent and protect your valuable minions, which can put immense pressure on your opponent if they are unable to kill your Young Priestess or Knife Juggler.

Flame Imp brings amazing value for its cost, and when played in the early game, the drawback from its Battlecry is a minor sacrifice. Speaking of great value, Dire Wolf Alpha may seem like a weak play, however since you will always have board presence, its value can potentially be equal to a 4/2 minion and it can always give you the opportunity to make favourable minion trades.

Harvest Golem, Scarlet Crusader, and Argent Squire will often be hard to deal with and they will bring solid value on the board. Harvest Golem in general is a great card to recover after an AoE damage spell, as you will get a Damaged Golem from its Deathrattle, while Scarlet Crusader and Argent Squire will often require two damage sources to be dealt with.

Shattered Sun Cleric and Defender of Argus will always increase both the offensive and defensive potential of your minions, which will often allow you to take a favourable trade and create advantage on the board, or simply to toughen up your valuable minions, making them harder to kill with an AoE damage spell.

Doomguard is one of the best aggressive Warlock cards, as it brings insane value for its cost, however you should always attempt to diminish the drawback from its Battlecry, by playing it from a rather empty hand.

Argent Commander may seem like a rather expensive choice for an aggressive deck, however in most situations you will be able to get a 2-for-1 out of it or use it as a finisher.

Speaking of finishers, Soulfire can be used as one when going for the kill, however in most situations you will attempt to use it as removal, allowing your minions to swing at your opponent, rather than engaging into minion trading.

Mortal Coil can potentially create advantage in the early game by taking out a minion with 1 health, however in most situations, you will use it to finish the first damaged minion and cycle Mortal Coil.

Life Tap, your Hero Power, is your main source of card advantage and you will use it to maintain your pressure on the board, however keep in mind that you should ideally stick to your Mana curve and use your Hero Power only when you have nothing else to play. Using your Hero Power excessively can have a bad influence on your board presence.

2.1. Synergies and Combinations

Since the deck is pretty straightforward to play, most of your synergies are simply the abilities individual cards provide.

Young Priestess will increase the defensive potential of your minions, making them harder to kill and thus putting additional pressure on your opponent.

Knife Juggler can do a lot of damage if not dealt with immediately, as your deck mainly consists of minions and you will likely play multiple each turn.

Defender of Argus brings amazing value on the board, however in most situations you will be able to buff your inferior minions with Taunt and thus delay your opponent.

Dire Wolf Alpha and Dark Iron Dwarf can increase the offensive potential of your minions, which can often allow you to make a favourable trade, especially when used with your Divine Shield minions.

2.2. Mulligan / Starting Hand

You should always be looking for a 1 Mana drop, such as Argent Squire, Flame Imp, Voidwalker, or Young Priestess, and if you already have at least one of them, you can easily swap your other cards in search of a Knife Juggler. Should you have The Coin, you should attempt to get a double 1 Mana drop down on your first turn, preferably Young Priestess and another minion.

Against most mid-range decks, you can easily keep your Soulfire and use it as removal.

2.3. Card Swaps

Should you be constantly matched against decks with many Taunters, you can potentially consider including Ironbeak Owl in your deck to bypass the Taunt mechanic when going for the kill.
