Hearthstone Warrior Aggro

Recommended Posts

Guest kyle

I feel like there is way too much taunt in the meta right now for this deck to get you close to legendary.  Very very hard for me to win with it...and I think I was playing correctly.  But for an aggro deck seems like there are not enough card draws...I will keep playing with it though.

 

I agree with the swap on the Upgrade card, have not found much use for it.

Hi there,

I believe there is some kind of misunderstanding. I assume Icy Veins were inspired by a deck similar to this: http://www.reddit.com/r/CompetitiveHS/comments/37t7ys/offmeta_decks_first_time_legend_with_face_warrior/

But as the author of the reddit-article himself clearly writes: This is actually no "good" deck, at least not the best aggressive one (that would be Hunter). Instead this deck surprises the enemy player who nowadays would assume you are playing Grim Patron or Control.

Additionally, he climbed at the end of the season, meaning he mainly queued against low-rank legendary players who might not want to climb to the top anymore but want to have fun not playing their strongest decks.

So the strength of this deck only was the factor of surprise. As soon as people adapt to the fact that there might be faster Warriors around, this deck should perform quite poorly on ladder.

 

At least that's what I think. ;)

Cheerio,

Bob

Cheerio,

the "best" aggro deck is actually quite subjective.i tend to do a lot better with aggro paladin compared to all hunter decks(and i tryed them all),mostly from people not expecting you to play aggro as other classes as much.for example,if you play a juggler on turn 2(or turn one with the coin) with a hunter they are more than likely to have removal for it in hand,but against other classes,not so much(and this is probably more true for warrior than it is for paladin).also there is such a thing as playing a different deck just because,you know,you enjoy playing it more.

 

 

as for the matter of people "adapting" this is basicly irrelevant.no matter how popular the deck gets,patron and control warrior will always be more common,and this means no one in their right mind will mulligan for early removal against a warrior.people might get used to playing against the deck more,but once they mulliganed away their responses at the start of the game,this hardly even matters.

 

 

i will be trying out this deck soon,just need to craft upgrade and mortal strike.probably will do a few tweaks according to my taste,but i will base it off this list,as i usually do.aggro pala got me to rank 1 last season,lets see if i hit legend this time :P

You got some valid points there. Of course, the fun one has playing a deck should be the main reason for playing it.

I just wondered, why this deck is being advertised as legend material, when Icy Veins do not recommend playing a similar deck from summer 2014 any more:

https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/season-15-low-budget-warrior-aggro-rush-deck

 

Hence my conclusion: surprise factor.

Yes, this is based on Mr Yagut's Face Warrior build. The author of that Reddit post is not the creator of the deck, so his opinions are not exactly the defining factor on the deck. Mr Yagut himself climbed to Rank 2 or 3 Legend with this deck, any deck that is capable of that is worth including on the site, it's that simple.

Well I just put this deck together and have to say that it is absurdly strong. The burst is insane! Is it better that aggro pally? It definitely can be given the circumstances (e.g. great draw). The same can be said about the aggrodin though. Some key differences between the two are the hero powers which affects the play style. Warrior is more of a stall while Paladin gives you a token that you can trade or buff. I've caught some legendary decks off guard with my pally, but some strong AOE or taunts can really screw things up.

 

I still have some testing to do, but I'm currently 6-0 at rank 14 with this deck. We'll see how well it holds up in the later ranks.

i think it's pretty obvious that the warrior hero power is pretty bad for this sort of deck lol.you probably want to use it ONLY if you have nothing else to do with your mana.

Is there any viable substitute for Death's Bite? I know i'ts a stupid question, because weapons are essential in this deck, but maybe Arathi Weaponsmith could replace it?

i actually find that having 2 death's bite can be a hinderance to the gameplan of the deck,as most of your creatures have 1 hp.it's true that the arathi will give you board presence,which this deck can really lack at times,but a 2/2 weapon on turn 4 sounds a bit underwhelming.i personally think that shredder could be a better replacement,but i will try both tomorrow and post results after i play a few games(currently at rank 6).

Hello,
I tried this deck and it is not good at all. Every player with one or two minions with taunt can counter such warrior! Im not even telling you how easy is to be countered with some basic cards and no skill... True if you are using this deck for training maybe it will work vs expert training innkeeper or maybe easy inn keeper basic cards. But vs player you cant expect to go further in ranked than 21 rank ! Really low deck i dont know why you are lying that is for rank 3-legendary !

Affordable option for casual/quest. I have zilch good warrior cards and was struggling to put something together before it. Still lack some cards (second arcane golem, couple more), but I went 5:5 and few lost games were extremely close (opponent winning with 1-3 health left).

Read my last post in this thread, a player recently used this deck to hit top 10 Legend. So your entire point is invalid.

Warrior quest again and few more games on top. Had a better feel for the deck now and went 8:1 in casual this time. The only lost game was Zoo bursting me down while having 1 life left.

 

I think the challenge is same as how people describe playing Face Hunter - it seems trivial, but in reality you need to have a very good feel for how much damage you can deal (and receive) couple turns ahead.

 

Also playing for burst is a little unusual after other decks, sometimes I overlook having lethal because I don't expect myself to have like 8+ extra damage on low mana in hand.

Last night I was rank 9 and I felt that ever achieving rank 5 was a distant dream. (The best I'd done in the past was rank 6, and I hadn't been ranked that high in months.) This morning I took this deck for a spin. I am now rank 5. Thanks!!

 

This deck seems to be much less easy to progress with at rank 5 than at the lower ranks, though, or perhaps I simply got lucky when I was lower on the ladder. So I may have to switch to a different deck now. But at least it saved me a lot of time laddering up, and I will strongly consider laddering with it at the start of the next season.

I have to say this deck is a nice surprise, and totally owns! After an 8 loss streak with patron, i found myself rofling after 2x9 hits to the face with reaper+HS smile.png

 

Keep up the good work!

so after playing this deck for a bit on legend ranks,i'd say it is in fact pretty good(the surprise factor is even greater at these ranks,since NO ONE expects aggro warrior).

 

overall though,aggro paladin still seems like the superior deck to me.both decks can get completely blowout wins with a good draw,but the main weaknesses this deck has is lack of card draw(paladin can just refill their hand with divine favor when needed) and ways to take back the board when you get outstarted by other aggro decks(sure,weapons help,but paladin has access to consecration,muster for battle,equality and avenging wrath on top of also having weapons).still a fun and effective deck overall though,and it is much cheaper to craft.

 

just my two cents on my experience with it so far.

The deck relies on face damage as quickly as possible, so in my opinion even minion exchanges should be frequently overlooked in favour of face damage. I've managed to win by round 5, but it quickly runs out of steam if the opponent has many taunts and/or heals. Plus, it badly needs card draw because you're left with very few cards vs the opponent, who if he/she is not dead by turn 7 or so, he has most of the answers needed in his hand.

 

Honestly my impression so far is that it's a very one-sided deck lacking in many areas, solely relying on early aggression without any planning for other circumstances whatsoever. I'll see if I can improve it a bit. It might work nicely if an extra Mortal Strike is included, and if both are cast below 12 hp.

Opened Captain Greenskin and tried it out for a bit. Don't feel it's good in this build. It's too expensive for early game and it's a bad topdeck later when you really want a burst to finish on the spot. Having a weapon AND greenskin AND enough mana to play it all is too conditional to come together reliably.

It's not like you have to play it all on the same turn, you play a Weapon on one turn, and then Greenskin the turn after.

Just my impressions. It's like Spellbreaker vs Owl — same effect, former comes with a better body, latter is much more flexible to fit into turn due to mana cost.

 

I saw builds with Greenskin around, just feeling this one is too low curve to run it.

So after a few weeks of playing with the deck I've found it to play exactly how a warrior deck should play- like a bare knuckle fight to the death where you will win with less than 5 health or at the very least death is assured your next turn 90% of the time.

 

If you don't have a warrior deck and saw that low cost- it's completely worth it. I've gone from 20 to 4 in a week just with this deck at the start of the month, so it has some serious teeth and a bit of a surprise factor when playing legendary control and other aggression decks.

 

That said I've also gone 12 loss streaks in a row, partly to my own ignorance of enemy decks and because this deck relies so heavily on a strong opener and good weapon/minion synergy... getting completely skunked with all/no weapons is a loss, no owls to answer taunts against any control deck by turn 5 (sludgebelcher with no answer completely loses any momentum you had and sets up their legendary/freeze/burst that clinches the game) is a loss, getting your hero frozen repeatedly or losing two weapons in a row is a loss, and not gimping the 1-trick ponies (light's defender/grimm patron/etc) with an appropriate minion within a turn is a loss...

 

Like any deck there's no sure-fire win against everything, but if you practice with it and learn what to clip with your minions and when it's okay to ignore and smash that hero- you'll find this is an easy to learn and use deck with a fairly high win rate for something so cheap. 

 

Sottle did good bringing this here, and a lot of the substitutions work well for their intented effect- I found Upgrade! and Execute have won and cost me matches the other would have won, and Leeroy is worth the Arcane Golem if you're lucky enough to have one but the Arcane Golem does just as well with the Cruel Taskmaster/Abusive Sergeant as an equivalent cost play-typicaly used as a finisher only.

      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
