Hearthstone Warrior Decks

22 posts in this topic

With this deck I managed to turn the game in the end with only 7 mana to spend. However it is an interesting choice of cards that generates a great fear especially those who are familiar to other decks

This deck is basic indeed. At this point in the beta is simply does not work against classes that are minion heavy (pally, shammy,) OR control heavy (mage, priest). no thanks...

I don't think it's really meant for proper high-level play in any way. If you're finding that you need to modify it for something, then a discussion of how you modified it would be very helpful.

It's called "Basic" because the free cards that are granted to players by default are called Basic. That's all that this deck is, a deck that contains cards that all players have access to without paying or grinding. At no point are we advising you to use this deck over one that contains Expert cards (which, in many cases, are simply better) - if you have the option to do so, go for it. But if all you've got to work with are Basic cards (like, for example, if you just got into the Beta), then this deck is probably the best you can play.

No longer viable due to Warsong Commander nerf.

Indeed. We are in the process of updating all of our Hearthstone content for the new patch. Thank you!

I have built the low budget aggro deck, and have the exact same cards, but I noticed if i don't kill the opponent or have any kind of board presence, as early as turn 5, the game is over for me. My minions will all be dead, and I will simply be topdecking.

 

I guess maybe I suck at the game, cause I can't get a MurLock aggro below rank 19 too.

 

Any tips on how to play aggro decks? How to trade, when to go for their face, when to play minions (cause every time I play one it gets removed before it does anything. if i don't play any, then they get board presence.)

Unlike the more expensive Warrior decks, this one is quite minion-oriented. This means that you do indeed need to mostly kill your opponent with your minions.

 

1. Replace the cards in your hand at the start to try to get as many of the following on turn 1:

 

- Leper Gnome

- Faerie Dragon

- Fiery War Axe

- Harvest Golem

- Amani Berserker

- Novice Engineer

- Frothing Berserker

- Shattered Sun Cleric

 

If your starting hand has ANY cards other than these, replace them. Your goal is to have cards to play on turns 1, 2, and 3. Given the large number of these cards in the deck, this should not be an issue.

 

2. Use Fiery War Axe (with Upgrade, if needed), and later on the Arcanite Reaper to help your minions establish a board presence. Use Execute on problematic minions. Use Shattered Sun Cleric and Dark Iron Dwarf to give your minions the edge they need to take out opposing minions.

 

3. Protect/buff your Frothing Berserker as much as you can.

 

4. The whole time, you should be managing to chip away at your opponent's health. Normally, if you do not expose yourself to board wipes, your minions should have good staying power with all the help they are getting from your weapons.

 

5. Finish off the opponent with a 7-damage swing from Gorehowl, if needed.

 

Regarding your other questions, it is hard to give you a simple answer. With aggro decks, you mostly want to go for their face and ignore the board, but there are exceptions to this. Two that I can name off the top of my head:

 

a) If you feel a board-clear is about to be used, trade your minions off to lessen the impact the board-clear will have. For instance, if you can make several beneficial trades with your minions before a Paladin's turn 4, you should do since there's a good chance your minions will just get wiped out by Consecration the following turn.

 

b) If you can trade with the opponent's minions in a way that is advantageous to you, but you know that if he does it on his terms (during his turn), he will do so in a way that is advantageous to him, you can consider trading.

 

In any case, choosing when to go for the face vs. trading is the most difficult (some may say the only difficult) aspect of playing aggro decks.

 

You need to just play more, and analyze your plays to see where you could have done better. You will improve in time!

Hello

half of the card you mentioned on the post above are not include in the base/common deck sleep.png

Also could you make a list with rare [ silver gem ] cards that would be a nice addition to the the deck along with some sort paragraphs that explain which cards should be replaced for the silver ones 
Thanks in advice

My previous post was addressing someone who was asking about the low-budget deck.

 

For crafting, this page should give you plenty of good ideas of what cards would be good to craft as a Warrior, but it only talks about Rares, Epics, and Legendaries. It does not mention Commons (the cards with a silver gem), so to figure out what common cards to craft, you can compare the Basic deck with the other decks (and see what Warrior Common cards those decks use). To save you some trouble, here are the best Warrior Common cards to craft:

 

1) Inner Rage. This card is great for combos, as well as just for damaging enemy minions to kill them, or to prime them for Execute.

2) Slam. Slam is pretty much amazing all-around. It is 2 damage for a cycled card (and an Execute-enabler) most of the time, and the rest of the time it's a 2-damage nuke for 2 mana.

3) Cruel Taskmaster. Like Inner Rage, but this one leaves a 2/2 body on the board behind it, so it's even better. Less amazing for combos (since it costs 2 mana, so you're less likely to be able to use it together with, say, Grommash), but the added 2/2 minion is often superior.

4) Arathi Weaponsmith. This card is amazing. Not only does it give you a 2/2 weapon (which helps tremendously with board control), but it also places a solid 3/3 on the board, and all for just 4 mana. It's a great turn 4 play, if you can use the 2/2 weapon to clear out the opponent's 3-drop. You end up with a weapon equipped and a minion on the board. Just lovely.

 

For Rares, Epics, and Legendaries you can check out the guide I linked above.

 

In the future, we'll hopefully have a better way to talk about what commons to craft.

I have a bit off fun with " ALAM - o - Bot " hand for warrior. This hand is NOT EASY to play, and my loosing procent is VERY HIGH.

With this hand I win 1 out of 6 games, so this shout ONLY be play for FUN, or just to try it out....

 

Anyway. This deck is build up to be play for HIGH card´s and the alam - o -bot Card. The Alam o bot Card is easy to kill ( it have only 3 life ) but if your Card com´s out right, the anemy dosen have a chance. This dose how ever mean, that you need the right Card from the very first round, then the chance for that is VERY small..... to have a chance to play the alam o bot, with out it getting kill, you need to "force" the other player to focus on other card´s. This is why this hand so mostly taunt Card.

 

But Try it out for fun.....

The hand: mana 1: 1x upgrade - 2x goldshire footman ( taunt ) 1x leper gnom - 1x shield bearer ( taunt ) mana 2. 2x frostwolf grunt ( taunt ) 2x ironbeak owl ( silence minior ( you never know when you need that :-) ) 1x nat pagle ( 50 % chance to drew a Card, is need to this hand ) mana 3. 2x Alam - o bot - 1x shield block - 2x silverback patriarch - 1x ironfur grizzly - 1x tauten warrior. mana 4. 1x Defender of argus - 1x sen´jin shield masta - 1x spellbreaker. mana 5. 1x booty bag bodyguard - 1x fan creeper. mana 6. 1x Argent commander - 1x lord of the arena. mana 8. 1 x Gruul - 1x ragnuros the firelord. mana 10. 1 x Sea Gian.mana 12. 1x mountain Giant. mana 20. Molten giant.

 

 Imagine that you in round 3 have 1 or 2 taunt, and play the alam o bot, an you have ragnuros the firelord on your hand, and the alam o bot is replaced with this Card. That will make most player resign. hahahaha. That thats the idea of this hand. How ever, the chance for that is VERY LOW, and you may just get SMACH out befor round 5........ This is NOT a easy hand to play, and you may just lose very fast. How ever, it still fun to try out a few times.

If you wish to have fun with Alarm-o-bot, try playing a Druid deck with it :)

nothing more fun than turn 1 Innervate -> Alarm-o-Bot -> Deathwing :D

But on a serious note, how did you manage to turn a warrior deck topic into Alarm-o-Bot discussion?! Oo

With Warsong Commander's nerf, the Patron Warrior mention as to why Blackrock is worth it should probably be updated.

Thanks, i'll look at it. But Patron Warrior is still very much a deck, just not in the Warsong form. I just uploaded a new Midrange Patron build that's proving very effective for a lot of players right now.

So is Varian Wrynn still a "top" craft? It's not being played in any control warrior decks currently. I actually opened Varian in a pack and was wondering whether i should keep it or disenchant it. Thanks.

So I have been playing control warrior recently, in wild mode in case you are wondering. I came here to see the crafting guide to see which legendary to craft, but found that there was no update on the new WotOG expansion nor about the two formats.

 

Thus, I would like to hear from you people about which legendaries to craft. Note that I am playing in Wild Mode.

 

Legendaries that I am currently using in my control warrior deck:

Dr. Boom, Sylvanas, Twin Emperor Vek'lor, Brann, and C'thun.

 

Below are my thoughts on what legendaries I would like to or would not like to craft:

 

1. Justicar. I believe this is a very crucial card in a control deck. The 2 extra armor is very important to allow the warrior to survive until fatigue and also makes it easier to enable shield slam. I would put this in my top priority crafting list. Yes I have achieved to win fatigue games without it, but against more aggressive decks it is really hard.

 

2. Grommash. I am currently playing C'thun in his place. I find C'thun being able to deal the same amount of burst needed from this guy, and actually does it better late game as it doesn't need to attack and lose health, also surpasses taunt. Although it costs a whole turn without Emperor reduction, enabling Grommash's enrage would also cost the remaining 2 or 1 mana left.

 

3. Varian. I don't think he should be a high priority legendary anymore, almost no one's playing him. He can cancel battlecries, and also force you to fatigue faster. But if you are playing the burst kind of control warrior which is faster then the fatigue kind, he might be able to drop down your Ysera or Grommash if you were lucky enough. Thus, I am not crafting him.

 

4. Alexstraza: I just never found a situation where I would be like: "Only if I had her I could've won the game".

 

5. Ysera: She generates large amounts of value in the long term, and is also useful for other classes. Might craft her after Justicar.

 

Your reply would be appreciated.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour continues this weekend, with the focus shifting to the Asia-Pacific region. In this article I have introduced some of the players, and listed their deck archetypes.
      The APAC region is often regarded as the weakest region, and with some justification. However, although the region lacks a little in depth, the best players are definitely world class. Not only that, but the rest of the pack is rapidly improving, and it would be very negligent to ignore the region in 2017. Staz, from The Philippines recently won the $150,000 first prize at a stacked WESG, which marked the first major tournament won by the region. The top players will be looking to keep the rest of the world on notice, with some high quality play this weekend.
      Below I have listed a few of the key players, along with notes and deck archetypes.
        CaraCute: Tempo Mage, Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      CaraCute has been touted by both NeilYo and Staz as having a good chance, and since those comments were made, she has come through the Tavern Hero Qualifier to take her place in the main Swiss. She learned her trade at Guildhouse Fireside gatherings, the same Fireside gatherings where caster Jia Dee also rose through the ranks.
        Che0nsu: Jade Druid, Miracle Rogue, Mid Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      Che0nsu made his name by first winning the Last Call qualifier, and then building on that to finish top four in the World Championship at BlizzCon. 
        ChongGEr: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Reno Warrior
      ChongGer is one of the most consistent performers in the South-East Asia scene. He came fourth in the Singapore Major, third in the Thai Major, and second in the Malaysia Major, where he lost two matches in the final to a player he had already beaten in the upper bracket! He also placed consistently high in the preliminaries last year. 
         GundamFlame: Tempo Mage, Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      GundanFlame impressed observers in the Japan Summer Championship with his understanding of aggressive play. His understanding of when to ease off the pedal, and when to go all-in, won him the national title. It is no surprise that his lineup for the Playoffs is an aggressive one.

        HandomeGuy (pictured above): Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      HandsomeGuy is regarded as the man to beat whenever he steps foot in an APAC tournament. He finished in second place in the APAC Winter Championship, and that proved to be his worst result, as he went on to win both the Spring and Summer Championships.
        Kranich: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman (shown below), Reno Warlock, Dragon Warrior
      Kranich played in both the 2014, and 2015 World Championships, finishing top four and top eight respectively. Due to this, and the fact that he was a member of Team Dignitas before they withdrew from Hearthstone, he is one of the best known APAC players in the West. He is not scared to put his own stamp on decks, his RenoLock contains Doomguard and Krul the Unshackled, while his Shaman deck is slower than most Aggro Shamans, and leans towards midrange.

        NaviOOT: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      NaviOOT has built a strong reputation on the back of relentless top 100 finishes, and a consistently popular stream. In recent months he has turned his attention more and more to the tournament scene, making the trip to the Malaysia Open, in which he placed top 8. He has also stated that he will be travelling to DreamHack Austin, which is coming up soon. He managed top four at last Winter's APAC Championship, and is a genuine contender in 2017.
       Pinpingho: Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Reno Warlock, Water Warrior
      Pinpingho finished top eight in the 2015 World Championship. He was known for being one of the strongest Shaman players, back before Shaman was regarded as a playable class, so it will be interesting to see how a does now! He qualified for two APAC Championship events in 2016, and so is no stranger to these events.
        Surrender: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      Although he is yet to have a big win, Surrender is highly regarded in the community and has numerous good results. He already had Xixo as a playtest partner, and has recently joined Counter Logic Gaming, along with Xixo and Hoej. He will be as well prepared as anyone for this event.
        Tom60229: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      One of the most accomplished players in the field, Tom60229 has shown consistent results since the dawn of Hearthstone. His most recent tournament win was the Malaysia Major, but also had good success on the 2015 ONOG Tour. His worldwide tournament experience will stand him in good stead in this event.
       
      The event begins at 3am CET on Saturday 25 February, and coverage will be on the official PlayHearthstone Twitch channel.

      For the past few days, top players have been discussing the pros and cons of the new MMR change at Legend Ranks. The only problem being, that Game Designer, Iksar, isn't aware of a change.
      There are far fewer Legendary players than usual this season, and as such things might feel a little different to the players, but the sample size across many streams and thousands of games of Hearthstone seems to point to the changing of the matchmaking system. It has been accepted by most that the system has changed so that you only play opponents in a very narrow band, rather than the previous system where you could be matched with someone with a wildly different Legend Rank.
      That alone might not have been enough evidence, but players are also queuing into the same opponent multiple times, to the point that they are having to play mind games on which deck to queue.

      Hoej independently witnessed the same thing, and went to Twitter to check that he was not alone. Several Legendary players agreed that the system has been changed, and people began to discuss what they thought of the changes.
      Placeholder for tweet 834430686325067776 The majority of players like the new matchmaking, although several did voice concerns that the new system heavily favours the players who reach Legend Rank early in the season. Just as the debate was getting interesting, Iksar dropped his bombshell:
        At this point there are several options, and all seem unlikely. Either the entire community is suffering from some kind of huge matchmaking fluctuation, Blizzard have made a major change without informing Iksar, or there is a bug which most people preferred to the actual game. Whatever happens, the reply when Iksar has investigated is sure to be interesting!

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
