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 >.<

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.

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.

      Blizzard have announced that the next Hearthstone year will be called The Year of the Mammoth. Six cards from the Classic set will be moved to a new Hall of Fame set, which can only be played in Wild.
      The announcement explains that the new Hall of Fame set will include cards that are currently in the Reward set, but the big news here is the six cards that will be leaving Standard. You can see Blizzard's reasons on the link above, but I've given a few notes in this article. Those cards are shown below.
      As well as the removed cards, there will be no adventures in 2017. Instead we will be given three full expansions that will be accompanied by a single-player mission, which will be used to enhance flavour, and offer challenges. This sounds like it will be along the lines of an adventure, but optional. I feel this is a great change, as it hurts nobody.

      Azure Drake is simply in too many decks. It is a hard card to nerf without making it weak, but it is pretty much as powerful as a 5-drop can be. Removing this to free up other 5-drops makes sense.

      The reasoning for Sylvanas is similar. Blizzard's words make a lot of sense on this one, and also give an insight into the future:
      Blizzard
      Similar to Azure Drake, it’s hard to see a card at the six mana cost out-value Sylvanas. In addition, Sylvanas has the most powerful Deathrattle effect in the game—as a comparison, the Priest card Mind Control costs 10 mana. We have exciting Deathrattle build-arounds coming soon, and in combination with Sylvanas, they would be too powerful for Standard. This seems to imply that N'Zoth, the Corruptor will be making a big comeback soon!

      I suspect a lot of people will be glad to see the back of Ragnaros. The Random element was often a contentious issue.

      The removal of Power Overwhelming is a bit of a surprise, but it seems that it has mainly been nerfed because of its strength in combinaton with cards like Leeroy Jenkins and Faceless Manipulator. I would also assume that Warlock is going to be getting some fun new toys to replace it.

      Ice Lance has been removed to remove Freeze Mage and allow new strategies to develop. It is also interesting that Blizzard mention it will allow them to make cards that copy cards. That could also apply to Power Overwhelming, so I would expect something along those lines to be in the next set.

      Conceal leaving will make sense to everyone. It allows Gadgetzan Auctioneer to survive as an interesting card, and removes the annoyance of not being able to interact with your opponent.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is called Blood Magic. It is the 88th Tavern Brawl.
      Blood Magic has a simple enough concept, which is that all spells cost Health instead of Mana. This could lead to an interesting metagame where healing is premium, and expensive burn spells are used to finish your opponent. Violet Illusionist is a key card in this Brawl, it allows the burn finish to only kill your opponent and not yourself. I expect to see it a lot over the coming days. 
      This is the third constructed Brawl in a row. It is an interesting Brawl to me, as I have felt that Blizzard have been trying to push this mechanic slowly on us over the last few expansions, but are terrified of it. In other card games, paying Health for cards has often been a broken mechanic, and I feel this might be a test to see how far they can push it.
      As always, feel free to leave your own lists in the comments.

      Blizzard have ended speculation as to the fate of Small-Time Buccaneer by announcing nerfs that will be active with Update 7.1. The ladder system will also see a small change.
      The changes were outlined by Blizzard in a Reddit post, and they should shift the metagame significantly.
      The big, although expected, news is that Small-Time Buccaneer will be nerfed to become a 1/1 rather than a 1/2. This puts it into turn 2 ping range and should stop the card getting out of control. It remains to be seen if it will still be playable considering it will still fetch patches, and still trade one Mana for two Mana in a lot of early game situations.
      Spirit Claws also sees a change, and although expected by many, was a minor surprise to me as Blizzard generally dislike messing with cards from adventures. The cost of the card has been raised from 1 Mana to 2 Mana. This might seem like a minor change, but the implications are huge. It will be very awkward in the early game with Bloodmage Thalnos and Wrath of Air Totem, and it will almost certainly see far less play after the update. 
      The ladder changes feel like Blizzard dipping their toe in the water, rather than a full on change. There will now be a series of Ranked Play floors, which are ranks that you can't de-rank below within a season. Those ranks are 5,10, and 15. This should help a little with ladder anxiety for many people.
      No date has been confirmed for the patch yet, but it seems likely that it will not be before the APAC Playoffs which end on February 25.
      Overall I feel that the changes are good. There will be chance for more sweeping changes when the new expansion hits later in the year, but these should tide us over in the meantime. Reno Jackson decks will be the obvious beneficiaries of the changes, but this means that Jade decks will be stronger. It will be fun to see where the meta settles down.
