Any room for knife Juggler in this deck because of cards like imp gang boss and Imp-plosion?

Tough to fit, this is already one of the decks I have most trouble finding room for cards in.

Very awesome deck! I've been climbing the ladder with it slowly but surely.

 

I tried making my own Demonlock, it was similar but I think the problem was I tried leaving out the Eggs and Healbots and it really needs them.

 

Mistress of Pain is my favorite Warlock card though, and if I wanted to try and add it the list do you have any suggestions? Even if it's not optimal. Thanks again for the list.

Voidcaller seems useless almost ..... Since all it can call is demons and you want it to be a high powered demon and not Jaraxxus (because battlecrys wont go off) it seems like a hit and miss card. There is only 1 card I want it to summon and that's a doomguard or since I modified the deck slightly a Illidan Stormrage (traded a darkbomb out for him) but still not liking how its working out.... Am I missing something?

I've been playing variant decks on this for some time.  When the new Warlock card from BRM comes in it will really make the deck shine and ditch Hellfire.  I was also looking for Knife Juggler variants and it is rough.  Mind you, I run more imps in my decks smile.png

 

Wish Illidan's spawns would be changed to demons.  Seems so silly for them not to be.

So potentially getting Jaraxxus, Mal'Ganis on turn 4-5 is bad. Not taken :)

A 3/15 minion for free, is still a 3/15 for free. Jaraxxus being summoned off Voidcaller is one of the most misunderstood things in the game, it's really, really, really good, not something you want to avoid.

what are your thoughts on demonwrath? the new warlock card. I know it would work well with the nerub eggs.

In the guide is suggests switching out a Dark Bomb or Ironbeak Owl for a 2nd copy of Bane of Doom.

 

Instead, I made the swap for a copy of Demonwrath. It's been working great.

Hello Sottle!

This is my first comment I write, but I couldn't hold myself to tell you, that this guide is awesome.

I come here looking for some nice decks and I use all of them.(and I mean really all)

So after I tried Handlock, but had bad success agains this agro meta, I decided to try this Demonlock guide. (I just crafted Mal'Ganis)

I am now 8/0 and it is as fun to play as Handlock.

 

I have a question if you don't mind:

  • I don't have Imp Gang Boss yet, and replaced it with Harvest Golem is that ok? What about Imp-Master?

Before Imp Gang Boss was released, i was playing Shredders in this deck, so I would go with that.

Greetings Sottle!

 

Sounds like great deck, have all cards from the list except Emperor Thaurissan, Imp Gang Boss and Voidcaller =\ (planning to get both Naxx and BRM in nearest future). As i saw i can replace Imp Gang Boss with Piloted Shredder, so what can i use instead of Emperor Thaurissan and Voidcaller?

 

Thanks!

Voidcaller is the fundamental building block of the deck, you can't play effectively without it.

Hey, great deck, I'm having a lot of fun with this one.

I'm around rank 7 at the moment and seem to get a lot of hunters. In 130 games I've recorded, 38 were Hunters, and my win ratio against hunters is poor compared to the other classes, which made me tweak my deck a little to try and deal with Hunters better, using a Voidwalker in the deck, tried a Haunted Creeper, just still struggling.   Any idea what card(s) to drop and what card(s) to include so I stand a bit of a better chance against all of these hunters?

Thanks

Demonfire, Chow, and Belchers would all be good additions for the Hunter matchup.

What do you think about trading Hellfire with Demonwrath Sottle? It still activates your egg's but will leave all other demons unharmed.

As much as I hate to ask this as I know the deck was crafted with specific cards, I still find myself 600 dust away from crafting Sylvanas but would like to give this deck a go. That being said, is there a somewhat decent replacement for her until I accumulate the rest of the missing dust? As always thanks for all the awesome decks and all your input !

 

***For now I'm swapping between Sunwalker and Mind Control Tech as weak subs for Syl, hopefully obtain the necessary dust in the next week via Arena, if anyone does have a better suggestion will check back however!

What do you think about Illidan in this deck? If summenoed by voidcaller on my turn, I can really flood the board with it. If not it will maybe force out bgh before malganis is summenoed.

Not a huge fan, the Demons in the deck are all fantastic to get from Voidcaller, but they're also good cards if you don't get that scenario, so you can just play them out and still have a strong turn, Illidan doesn't really fit that mold and it's only really good off Voidcaller.

      For the past few days, top players have been discussing the pros and cons of the new MMR change at Legend Ranks. The only problem being, that Game Designer, Iksar, isn't aware of a change.
      There are far fewer Legendary players than usual this season, and as such things might feel a little different to the players, but the sample size across many streams and thousands of games of Hearthstone seems to point to the changing of the matchmaking system. It has been accepted by most that the system has changed so that you only play opponents in a very narrow band, rather than the previous system where you could be matched with someone with a wildly different Legend Rank.
      That alone might not have been enough evidence, but players are also queuing into the same opponent multiple times, to the point that they are having to play mind games on which deck to queue.

      Hoej independently witnessed the same thing, and went to Twitter to check that he was not alone. Several Legendary players agreed that the system has been changed, and people began to discuss what they thought of the changes.
      Placeholder for tweet 834430686325067776 The majority of players like the new matchmaking, although several did voice concerns that the new system heavily favours the players who reach Legend Rank early in the season. Just as the debate was getting interesting, Iksar dropped his bombshell:
        At this point there are several options, and all seem unlikely. Either the entire community is suffering from some kind of huge matchmaking fluctuation, Blizzard have made a major change without informing Iksar, or there is a bug which most people preferred to the actual game. Whatever happens, the reply when Iksar has investigated is sure to be interesting!

      *Affliction Lock - Orc, ilevel 885, 38 artifact traits*
      1600-1700 2's rating: with a Resto Shaman
      1800+ 3's rating: with a Resto Shaman/DH
      Pets: Fel Hunter (Permanent) then: Inferno stun / Fel hunter
       
      My question is how do you play with your lock in 2's vs 3's strategy?
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      (1). Do you just outlast and wait for dampening? spread pressure, UA+Drain when you can, and try and outlast with:
       
      Talents: Writhe / Absolute / Howl / Siphon / Demon / Service / Phantom ?
       
      Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      (2). OR do you try to set up burst windows? with some what spread pressure    (its hard to get dots on both healer/dps) but CC chain the healer and burst with UA + Drain on the DPS for a kill window? with:
       
      Talents: MG / Absolute / Howl / Siphone / Demon / Service / Phantom?
       
      Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      For 3's I do the (1) for the spread pressure since its hard for the healer to maintain, but for 2's I keep trying (1) and (2), I just cant seem to find the right way to climb in 2's
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Any advice on talents/honor talents or play style for Affliction in 2's or 3's? or anything you try with your healers? I'm open for suggestions and talent changes
       
      thank you.

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 1/10M NH, 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
      Violentnacho & the Guild
