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.

Why so?

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.

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week and the rules are simple: both players get to have two turns, instead of one.
      This starts from the very beginning of the game, therefore giving a big advantage to Player 1. Don't be surprised if your opponent concedes when he/she finds out that he/she has to go second (or if you have to do it)!
      Doomsayer is a must-have on this Tavern Brawl, since it clears the board immediately. Flappy Bird is also a useful card and Aggro decks are generally favoured. OTK decks also can work great since you have two turns to set up your... one-turn kill. You can also experiment with Open the Waygate and Temporus; both cards work and they give you a third turn!

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.
