I'm currently trying to play a burst Variation of Handlock. It started as a fun Deck But it Gas in my opinion some potential. Basically, it Uses alexstasza followed by two evolved Kobolds and 2 soulfire as a win condition. Could you please take a look Stadt the decklist and Tell ne your thoughts on it? Maybe suggestions to make it better? Thanks in advance. Link below

Have you considered Malygos-based combo? In this case it would mean you would only have to add Malygos, as you already have the rest.

Yeah i tried malygos, but it is impossibe to one shot your Opponent because of the Rotation of thairissan.  The kobolds Save one mana for anothwr soulfire and it is possible to Play one Kobold 2 soulfire followed by hellfire for 17 dmg

Hey, maybe I'm missing something but why use Doomsayer?

Warlock got this nice Corrupting Mist. Same mana cost as Doomsayer but less vulnerable (maybe Counterspell) and you can cast it and even play a minion afterwards who will not be affected by the Corrupting Mist, well, minions played by your opponent afterwards will not be affected either. that's a downside but if your Doomsayer gets killed you do nothing and wasted a card.

A big downside of Corrupting Mist is that the opponent can play minions on the following turn, which means you will not gain any tempo. Doomsayer prevents the opponent from playing minions on their turn, which means you will be the one with board after Doomsayer triggers.

Yes, I mentioned that myself :D but the vulnerability of the doomsayer to be killed compared to a spell is worth a thought. Or am I totally wrong?

At the very least Doomsayer represents 7 health but at the best it clears the board and helps you gain/regain momentum. Corrupting Mist on the other hand doesn't guarantee anything because the card is limited to only the minions in play at the time of it's casting which means if they play a minion on their next turn then you aren't gaining much ground.

It is worth a thought, but the strength of Corrupting Mist only shows in control matchups, and, as you know, neither Doomsayer nor Corrupting Mist should be run against control because those cards are anti-aggro techs. Against control, you might want to consider Abyssal Enforcers instead.

So i got a bit stubborn making a viable warlock deck.I've made quite a few tweaks,crafted and dusted cards for the sole purpose of climbing the ladder with warlock.

 

Here is my input and at the end i'll paste you my whole deck.

First of ,rush decks pose the biggest threat for handlock. I found that neither doomsayer or coils,shadow bolts can help you in those situations. For that you need early game board presence. I tried dirty rat but got fairly disappointed with it.Turn 2 hyena is no fun against hunters and to be honest i dont see how summoning an extra creature is going to help you in those early games.You need the exact opposite.

Tar creeper has been marvelous so far.It can definitely slow down those rush 1/2 -2/2 - 3/2 etc health mobs. Opponents often use their abilities that are supposed to land to your face to destroy those taunts.That gives you more room to breath until you can summon your big threats. Another awesome card is friendly bartender. Atm im running with 1x but might consider using 2x as it has been really great in early game board control plus the healing is always appreciated.

Another thing i noticed was that quite often against rush decks i'd win with really low HP. This is very common against aggro. So why not take advantage of it and bring back some ideas from the past handlock. So i also included Molten Giant x1.

Alexstraza is on the deck as well. 

 

So here is my deck. If you guys try it out let me know how it goes. I've played from 15 to 5 with it.

Best of luck

Depends on what you are facing. A different tech card is what you want to go for in general. Against pirate or other weapon-based decks, second copy of Acidic Swamp Ooze (alternatively Gluttonous Ooze based on personal preference). Against aggressive decks, healing, such as Mistress of Mixtures, is something you should go for. Faceless Shambler or in some cases Lord Jaraxxus can be included against control decks, but The Black Knight is preferred.

Hey guys, while Happy Ghoull is a good tool against aggro and midrange I think that Bonemare could help block out greedier control decks with a big burst of damage. Does anyone think thats a viable change?

Sure. Could work fine if you need some extra anti-control power.

I  find myself being utterly destroyed playing this deck vs. any other control deck and have a 50/50 vs. aggro decks. I have not won a single game vs. control priest, seem to straight up counter this and most mage decks seem to laugh at me all the way.

Like most other decks Druids is an issue as soon as that pesky Ultimate Infestation is played, kinda feels gg there most of the time.

New hunters with constant flow of big taunts using Houndmaster, Nesting Roc and Bonemare seem to outlast you in the long run.
Paladins and their Spikeridged Steed, Tirion Fordring discovers and removal seems equally impossible to beat.

I know Warlock struggled a lot in Un'Goro but honestly feels like it's not much better in this expansion :( They got great buffs, very much so but so did everyone else so feels like we just all went up 1 notch meaning Warlocks are still behind everyone else.

I know this is off topic and i apologize in advance, but since no one seems to care about the wild warlock decks, i chose to ask my question here. I`m playing warlock exclusively since two years, that´s why i moved to wild with the rotation of Reno Jackson. Could you add a guide for something like Midrange Demonlock or Krul Reno Demonlock? Seems like Wild is underrepresented on this page and on streams, even tough the meta changed a lot.

Second question: Could you have a look at the following and tell me your thoughts about it? Thanks in advance

Wild decks aren't covered as much as the standard ones because they are simply not as popular.

As for the latter question, the deck seems fine for a midrange demonlock (renolock is still superior). I would swap Bloodfury Potion out for a second Imp Gang Boss, and maybe Sylvanas Windrunner for a second Abyssal Enforcer, based on the meta you are facing.

Thanks for the fast reply, i tried the deck with a second Imp Gang Boss, but it is somehow counteractive to Bloodreaver Gul´dan, filling your graveyard with 1/1 imps. I agree that Bloodfury Potion is not that great, but esspecially against, priest it is great to have an early 4/6 Voidwalker or a 4/7 Mistress. As for the Sylvanas Swap, what do you think about Felfire Potion for some extrs burst / board clear against taunt druid?

My recommended swaps are pretty much aimed at a faster meta, which is what I have been experiencing lately. If you face slower meta, do not add the second Imp Gang Boss, but something bigger, such as a second Despicable Dreadlord or Lord Jaraxxus
Yeah, Felfire Potion sounds good. Sylvanas Windrunner is included most likely for the 1-off value and pseudoclear against decks with big minions, such as jade druid or big priest, so if you believe that a different card will bring you higher value, feel free to include it.

      Will these three new Treant cards see play in the meta? Or will they come up short like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood?
       
      Three new Treant-themed cards were revealed today by PCGamer:
       

       
      First up we have Dendrologist. The floor on this card is solid, as a 2 Mana 2/3 is passable in a pinch. The ceiling on Dendrologist is higher than you might think, as his Battlecry is quite strong. Druid might have more high-quality spells than any other class in the game (Wild Growth, Nourish, Ultimate Infestation, Branching Paths, Naturalize, and Savage Roar to name a few), which leads me to believe that Dendrologist will be a powerhouse if Druid gets sufficient Treant support in this expansion.
       

       
      3 Mana for 4/4 worth of stats is already a great deal on its own, and the added Treant synergy puts this card over the top. The fact that this card creates two bodies makes it even better in aggro decks that look to go wide and finish with cards like Fungalmancer. This is a very reasonable card to curve into on turn 3, and it hints that the Treant deck will likely be quite aggressive.
       

       
      Finally we get Mulchmuncher, a big fat Mech with Rush and a dangerously tempting Mana reduction effect. We know from experience with Corridor Creeper and Giant cards how strong it can be to play big Minions for low amounts of Mana, but it won't be that easy to reduce Mulchmuncher's cost. If the Mana Treants from Living Mana count as Treants for this card, then I can easily see Mulchmuncher as finisher in an aggressive Treant decks.
      Will these new Treant cards turn Force of Nature and Witchwood Apple into playable cards? Or do you think the Treant cards will fall flat like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      The latest Hearthside Chat with Peter Whalen revealed Supercollider, Flobbidinous Floop, and Whizbang the Wonderful from The Boomsday Project.
       
      In the latest Hearthside Chat, Senior Game Designer Peter Whalen explained some of the themes (science) and inspirations (more science) for The Boomsday Project. In doing so, he spoiled three new incredibly exciting cards. If you're interested in watching the video (which is just 4:59 seconds long), you can do so right here:
       
       
      Card Reveals
       

       
      This card gets an "A" for flavor, as I don't think its possible to come up with a better design for a card called "Supercollider" in a science-themed set.
      This Warrior weapon has the potential to be a 2 or 3 for 1, as it can set up trades quite easily if you attack your opponent's largest minion with it. However, attacking your opponent's largest minion means you will also be dealing plenty of face damage to yourself, making high amounts of armor gain a requirement for putting this card in your deck. For that reason, Supercollider plays excellently with Baku the Mooneater, and I expect it to see play in Odd Warrior decks.
       

       
      Next up is another card with an excellent name, Flobbidinous Floop. This guy provides a Faceless Manipulator-style effect for Druid decks for just 4 Mana, which will almost certainly make him a combo piece in a variety of Druid decks. Between Innervate, Twig of the World Tree, and Biology Project, there will almost certainly a few new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop. He can also be used in Big Druid decks one turn after playing a huge minion, such as Ysera, Hadronox, or The Lich King, to become a 3/4 copy of a card with a powerful effect. Expect to see plenty of Flobbidinious Floop in the new meta!
       

       
      Next we get Whizbang the Wonderful, which is one of the most unique and exciting cards in the history of Hearthstone. What does he do? Let me show you:
       

       
      Whizbang the Wonderful replaces your entire deck. He replaces your hero, and he names your new deck "Whizbang is Wonderful". When you enter a game with this deck, you will be randomly handed 1 of 18 recent deck recipes by Blizzard at the start of the game.
      Will Whizbang be competitively viable? Almost certainly not, but I think that question is almost entirely missing the point. By adding Whizbang to the game, Blizzard has offered new players a way to access 18 different for just 1600 dust! Though its unlikely these 18 premade decks will be 100% meta optimal, they will almost certainly be viable enough for newer players to climb the earlier ranks while playing a wide variety of decks and learning new cards. This is the closest thing that Blizzard will probably ever do to selling pre-constructed decks (something that many other cards games do), which in my eyes is a major step forward. Will tryhards be disappointed when they open Whizbang? Probably. But not every Legendary minion needs to be a home run for the hardcore audience. Whizbang is the new player's best friend, and will surely add much more joy to the game of Hearthstone than he takes away.
      What do you think about today's spoilers? Will Supercollider see play? Can you find any new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop? And are you as excited about Whizbang the Wonderful as I am? Let us know in the comments what you think about these new cards, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this new Mech card could be a serious player in the meta.
       
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" has revealed another new Magnetic card from The Boomsday Project, called Annoy-o-Module:
       

       
      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this guy gains Magnetic and 1/2 worth of stats for just 2 Mana! The stats and keywords this card instantly adds to another Mech seem quite strong when you compare it to Blessing of Kings, which adds 2 more Attack to a minion but does not add Divine Shield and Taunt. This card isn't awful when played on it's own, and it plays well in a deck with Corpsetaker. Annoy-o-Module checks enough for boxes for me, and I full expect it to see play in the upcoming meta.
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" is short but sweet, and you can watch the full video right here:
       
       
      Do you think Annoy-o-Module impact the game as much as Annoy-o-Tron did? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      Use Mini-Rag to destroy enemy minions and level up your"Wow!" emote in this week's Tavern Brawl.
       
      In celebration of The Midsummer Fire Festival, this week's Tavern Brawl is all about Ragnaros, Lightlord. Well, Mini-Rag to be more specific:
       

       
      A 2/3 Ragnaros with Immune will start the game on one side of the board. At the end of each turn, Mini-Rag will deal 1 damage to a random target on the other side of the board for each Attack he has, then swap to the other side of the board. Each time he kills an enemy minion he will gain 1 Attack, growing in power as the game progresses.
       

       
      Due to the sudden pressure that Mini-Rag applies to both players, I highly recommend playing an Aggro deck. I used Odd Rogue in my first game to take down an Odd Hunter. You could also play an anti-aggro deck to try and counter all the aggro decks running around, but be sure to play some self-healing such as Branching Paths or Healing Rain.
       

       
      The Tavern Brawl will track how many minion kills that Mini-Rag racks up. After 8, 30, and 60 Minion kills, you will level up the fireworks in your "Wow!" emote. This is a returning Tavern Brawl from last year's festival, and your running total of Mini-Rag kills from last year's festival carries over to this year. Happy hunting!
