This is a really terrible build. I've won one game the entirety of the evening. So I've probably lost 10. Either I'm getting bad draws, or this build sucks.

Hey, Beard

Unfortunately I can't offer you any constructive feedback unless you provide me with a good example. Aggressive Warlocks are often dependent on a good draw against certain control decks, however you shouldn't lose 10 games in a row to a bad draw.

Hello there! Before i start i just wanted to let you know that i love your builds for the different heroes, and it has helped me alot.

I saw this warlock deck and thought it seemed cool, so i crafted a few cards, even though i couldnt afford every single of them. I changed a couple of cards because of this, and i dont know if it ruins the wholde build. im finding myself losing alot more with this deck, than with the mid budget rogue build, which i have completed and is identical to your build. Here is my current warlock deck:

2x Soulfire
1x Mortal coil
1x Blood imp
1x Flame imp
2x Voidwalker
2x Shattered sun cleric
2x Harvest golem
1x Leeroy jenkins
1x Jaraxxus (had to) :)
2x Argent commander
1x Power overwhelming
2x Demonfire
2x Defender of argus
1x Knife juggler
1x Gnomish inventor
1x Shadowflame
1x Onyxia
2x Faerie dragon
2x Leper gnome
2x Loot hoarder

Is there anything i should change here (That doesnt cost too much dust) Is there anything thats ruining the deck? I am a pretty new Hearthstone player so i dont know so much about it, so please leave me some feedback on what i should do with the build. 

Sincerely: Manly

Hey, Manly, 
 
The deck you pasted is starting to look great, however you will need to polish a few details.
 
You are leaning towards aggression, however some of your choices don't go hand in hand with your deck's tempo. I understand Jaraxxus and Onyxia seem powerful to you, however with a deck that is this aggressive, they will be a dead card in your hand in 99% of the cases. You should swap them out.
 
Gnomish Inventor may seem decent and it actually is, however not in aggressive decks or any deck above low budget for that matter. You should swap it out.
 
Blood Imp, Flame Imp, Power Overwhelming are your "core cards" make sure you get 2 of each asap. 
 
Knife Juggler is really powerful in this deck, you should consider getting a second one.
 
If you are limited with dust, I would suggest taking out the cards I mentioned, get your core cards all x2 and potentially include a Dark Iron Dwarf in.
 
If you make the changes I suggested, you will need to take out 2 additional cards. I personally would take out 2x Demon Fire or 2x Shattered Sun Cleric and add that 1 Dark Iron Dwarf.
 
2x Soulfire
2x Mortal coil
2x Blood imp
2x Flame imp
2x Voidwalker
2x Harvest golem
1x Leeroy jenkins
2x Argent commander
2x Power overwhelming
2x Demonfire
2x Defender of argus
1x Knife juggler
1x Shadowflame
2x Faerie dragon
2x Leper gnome
2x Loot hoarder
1x Dark Iron Dwarf
 
Hope this helps,
Regards,
Poyo

Thanks alot dude! This helped me alot, I did some research on onyxia and i quickly found out that it wasnt such a good card as i thought :) I disenchanted it and crafted the remaining imps and the knife juggler :) Ive been winning alot more lately and i have now a better understanding about what an "aggro deck" is. Thanks you so much :)

But i have one more question for you :D How far do you think this deck could you, past rank 10? (if played correctly ofc) :) And should my next goal be to craft sylvanas and put her in my deck? 


Anyways, thanks for the great answer Poyo. You really helped me with my deck.
Sincerely Manly :)

Hello,

 

I dont have Sylvanas, so I thought about Faceless Manipulator in the meanwhile. What do you think?

By the way, I was thinking about including another Power Overwhelming (because we have 2 shadowflames in the deck and Leeroy to perfect the combo)... what do you think? Should I remove 1 voidwalker or 1 Faerie for example?

 

Oh! I forgot to mention that other alternatives that I have instead of Faceless Manipulator are: Gruul, Ravenholdt Assassin and Baron Geddon.

I was thinking about crafting Sylvanas, and in case it is absolutely necessary in this deck, maybe I will, but I'd like to keep the dust in case I need to improve my Shaman deck (my priority).

 

Thank you very much!

This deck should go to Rank 5, however to get to legendary it would require a lot of grinding and it depends on the meta game.

Sylvanas is not obligatory. I would advise against Faceless Manipulators - you are playing an aggressive deck and Faceless Manipulator shines in late game.

Should you have problem getting last few cards to complete the deck, you can easily put in an extra Dark Iron Dwarf, Mortal Coil or Power Overwhelming. 

Hope this helps, 
Best of luck,
Poyo

Ey, Poyo,

 

Thank you very much. Finally I got Sylvanas and a few more cards, so now I can even craft 2x Molten Giant to make the legendary one, but I'll play this aggro version for a while and the control shaman version.

Thanks a lot again for the help wink.png

Played this Mid Budget Warloc Aggro deck from Rank 12 (0 stars) and finished with rank 11 (3 stars). Winning 7 out of 3

 

Game 1 - vs Druid - Loss - Turn 9

Game 2 - vs Shaman - Loss - Turn 10

Game 3 - vs Warloc - Win - Turn 6

Game 4 - vs Priest - Win - Turn 6

Game 5 - vs Paladin - Win - Turn 7

Game 6 - vs Shaman - Loss - Turn 10

Game 7 - vs Mage - Win - Turn 5

Game 8 - vs Priest - Win - Turn 4

Game 9 - vs Shaman - Win - Turn 6

Game 10 - vs Warloc - Win - Turn 5

 

 

Things went bad the first 2 games, druid taunted too hard and the shaman won with 1 health remaining, i couldn't draw soulfire to end him sadly. 

 

I learned that you must be very selective with your starting hand, aim to put pressure ASAP, meaning try to get as many 1 mana cost as you can in ur starting hand, i found that leeroy jenkins with one or two voidwalkers is pretty much game over for the opponent never lost when i drew that. 

 

You will murder opponents super early with the right hand, as you can see i defeated a priest on turn 4. I used flameimp turn 1, and demonfire turn 2 and just went to town, by the time he got around to getting rid of flameimp i had done way too much damage. 

 

On average with a good draw you can expect to win mid-game. Shaman's gave me the most trouble their cards are practically build to counter this deck but decks that can't quickly remove your minions early are in for a world of hurt. 

 

I enjoyed playing this deck a lot but i do feel that it is very hit or miss depending strongly on your starting hand to establish itself

im trying this deck out now that I have the cards to make it. it says:

"Dire Wolf Alpha and Dark Iron Dwarf can increase the offensive potential of your minions, which can often allow you to make a favourable trade, especially when used with your Divine Shield minions."

but dark iron dward isn't on the card list. was that a mistake what was meant instead?

Thank you for noticing this. Dark Iron Dwarf is not meant to be in the deck. It's been fixed :)

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      The Mage Legendary from Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed, and it is called Sindragosa. It is the seventeenth card to be revealed from the upcoming expansion.
      Sindragosa is an interesting card, and a difficult one to evaluate. It is also worth noting that it is a Dragon.

      Sindragosa provides plenty of value. It is a very slow minion, but we have recently seen with Medivh, the Guardian, that slow value is very playable in the correct deck. Value Mage has been a feature of the Journey to Un'Goro meta under various names, and there is no reason to believe that will change after Knights of the Frozen Throne is released. The main obstacle to it seeing play will be the competition from cards such as Archmage Antonidas and Medivh, and whether there are enough slots available in decks for multiple high Mana cards. 
      This is a card that we can expect to be tested on multiple live streams in the early days of the expansion. At the very least, it is another card that will allow people with smaller collections to play with some of the most powerful cards in the game. What Sindragosa's future is beyond that, is difficult to predict. Feel free to post your predictions in this thread!
      For a list of all of the cards spoiled so far, as well as all of the information about Knights of the Frozen Throne, check out our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.

      The latest new card to be revealed is a Rogue Common, Vampiric Poison. It is the sixteenth card to be revealed so far.
      Vampiric Poison uses the new keyword Lifesteal. Lifesteal heals the hero for an amount equal to damage done, in the same way as Wickerflame Burnbristle.

      In a vacuum, it seems that this card is not very good. Health totals tend to be a long way behind tempo gain in terms of how important they are to a deck, and playing Vampiric Poison will often throw away a card for no gain in tempo. When put into context of the current meta, Rogue does need a heal fairly urgently. Unfortunately Vampiric Poison is only an effective heal when put on a weapon with either high attack, or with high durability, and current rogue decks play neither.  Anyone looking to try to make this card work would do well to consider Assassin's Blade and work from there.

      Mountainfire Armor and Nerubian Unraveler have been revealed by Tesdey, Reynad, and Eloise.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out in our Knights of the Frozen Throne guide.
      Mountainfire Armor

      Deathrattle: If it's your opponent's turn, gain 6 Armor.
      Vanilla test? ✓
      Strong effect? ✓

      If we're to learn anything from Shieldmaiden, it's that cards that don't even pass the vanilla test but provide a significant amount of armor will see play and feel amazing in control-oriented warrior decks. Whether control warriors will come back to life given the still-existence of Jade druids and the  like is questionable however, but if it does, this card will certainly be MVP. Value-wise, its Deathrattle, if triggered properly, is worth a bit over 2 mana. Giving this Taunt through Sunfury Protector or Defender of Argus might be one way to ensure it triggers, though its pseudo-area of effect protection is also to be underlined. Would Pirate and Taunt warriors run this guy? Doubtful. It is pretty good for arena however, though it sports an unfortunate rare rarity, meaning you won't see it a lot.
       
      Nerubian Unraveler

      I'm not too sure what to think of this. On one hand, this looks to be some kind of anti combo deck tech card. Unfortunately, its cost seems really prohibitive, making it difficult to drop it in a pinch along something else for a strong turn, and its stats are so underwhelming despite the effect being mirrored that it may end up being a dead draw against anything that doesn't rely on spells. Might decks that don't run many spells such as Ramp druids or more experimental Handbuff paladins be seen running this? Maybe. Innervating this out, or better yet, finding one with Barnes may certainly be annoying to deal with, especially considering the effect stacks; get enough of these out on the field, and nobody has to ever worry about spells again. Though I feel this is unlikely to ever see serious play, I'm sure we'll have plenty of Evolve and Moonglade Portal related occasions to make sure this guy shows up to throw a monkey wrench in your occasional match.
