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

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?

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!

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

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.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
