Overall this is quite a nice deck. I tried it and it has a pretty decent plays and a good win ratio.

The only thing that I would recomment is that you changed the Bloodfen Raptors, they are pretty bad - they are simply outshined by other 3/2 that also have abilities like Armany Berserker.

In my deck(I have a few commons and rares) I swaped them with a Raidleader and an Imp Master(works really well if they haven't played anything on turn 1 to do: voidwalker turn 1, then coin into Imp Master for turn 2 and then at turn 3 play Raid Leader for quite some damage and some major threats on the board).

I also swapped the Elven archer for another Storwind Champion for more late game presense.

Again, I think this is a pretty good beginners deck. Really pleased by it. smile.png

Thank you for the nice words. The reason why you see the Bloodfen Raptors in there instead of other, better cards like the Amani Berserker is that this deck is made out of basic cards entirely. We did it this way so that it would be accessible to literally anyone. Naturally, doing it this way you miss out on some really good cards, some of which are actually easy (and important) to craft (like Spellbreakers).

 

In the (hopefully very near) future, we're going to expand a lot on these decks, giving people hints as to what cards to craft first, as well as giving some sort of rating/analysis of the existing cards. This should allow players to make their own informed decisions as to what cards to swap into the decks to make them better, based on the cards they actually have (or can craft).

Great new presentation format with the tables, the Naxx icon and how far a deck could get you. The more detailed descriptions and different matchup advice like on the Handlocks are quite useful too.

 

Thanks.

The Legendary Demonlock deck by Sottle posted 3/2 is very underwhelming and needs work. At best I've averaged a 33%-25% win ratio. It's not strong enough to take board control and trying to maintain control if you get it is very draw dependent. By the time you have the mana and cards needed to start doing damage it's too late to do anything that could salvage a win.

The meta changes from aggro to control and reverse, every day. While it might not be the best in the aggro meta, it's definitely a viable choice. Reworking every single deck to fit the meta would be very hard, I'd rather suggest looking for another deck that can counter the current meta.

Handlock for control. Demonlock is a midrange deck. I suggest handlock because it is cheaper and quite more consistent.

Which players have got high legend with it? As far as i've seen, the people that have tried it have achieved less than stellar winrates (55%ish at best). It's a deck that i'll cover at some point, but I don't feel like it's strong unless there's been some breakthrough that i've missed.

Perhaps he is referring to the crafting guide being updated for Standard/ToG

The Warlock crafting guide DOES need an update for standard format in my opinion. A number of the cards suggested in the crafting guide are Naxx and GvG. While I appreciate your additions positiv2, the additions alone are a very incomplete look at the Standard meta.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
