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,

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 :)

      Anton "Dvck" Lund found his way out of a jam on the ladder. Can you?
      Dvck and Aleco discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup.
      The player interviews I've done with RayC and TerrenceM have been some of the most fun and informative episodes of "What's the Move?", so I was very excited when Anton "Dvck" Lund reached out to me via reddit with a play from a recent game of his. Playing as Combo Dragon Priest, Dvck was able to find his way out of a tough spot against Murloc Paladin. Can you do the same?
      In this week's episode, Dvck and I discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup. For what ended up being a relatively short episode by "WTM" standards, I was pleasantly surprised by how much we were able to break down together so quickly. The interview with Dvck was as fun as it was informative, so I hope to have him back on the show soon! If you're interested in watching some high-legend gameplay, be sure to tune into Dvck's stream on twitch.tv.
      You can look forward to a few more episodes about the Hearthstone World Championships in the coming weeks, but I always welcome submissions and suggestions for future episodes. Did you have a favorite play from the world championships? Feel free to link me the VOD here on Icy Veins or send me a message on twitter @Aleco_P.
      Thanks for watching!

      Kolento and ShtanUdachi found themselves in nearly identical situations at the world championships - but did they make the same decisions?
      Episode 14 of "What's the Move?" discusses the importance of being mana efficient in the early game, as well as the relationship between speed and value.

      The Hearthstone World Championships were full of incredible plays, sticky situations, and valuable lessons to be learned from the best players on the planet. There were far too many great plays to analyze in a single video, so for the next few episodes of "What's the Move?" I'll be breaking down all of my favorite plays from the World Championship weekend.
      To kick things off we have a pair of Tempo Rogue vs. Highlander Priest matchups featuring Kolento and ShtanUdachi. Both players drew nearly identical opening hands, but did they did make same decisions?
      If you managed to spot a particularly tricky or interesting play from the recent World Championships, please feel free to link it in the comment section below! I'd love to break down as many viewer-submitted topics as I can in the coming weeks and months, and I have little doubt that I may have missed some of the most fascinating plays from the tournament during my initial viewing.
      Wishing you all the best of luck in the post-nerf meta!

      Welcome to the post-Corridor Creeper meta.
      Hearthstone Update 10.2 is now live worldwide and it's a big one!
      The first change it brings are the nerfs to four cards that have terrorised dominated the meta up until now. Bonemare now costs 8 mana, Patches the Pirate no longer has Charge, Raza the Chained makes the Hero Power cost (1) instead of (0) and Corridor Creeper has been butchered down to 2 attack. You can read Aleco's interesting opinion piece on Blizzard's nerf policy here.
      The second big addition of this patch is the Ranked Play update, which will take effect on March 2018. Players will now drop only 4 ranks with each monthly reset, all ranks will have 5 stars and you will only need to win 5 Ranked games to earn the monthly card back.
      The Year of the Mammoth Bundle is also finally available on the Shop. For $19.99 or 19.99 EUR, you can get 30 packs - 10 for each of the Year of the Mammoth expansions (Un'Goro, KFT, K&C). Don't forget that the Quest for Packs event is still ongoing and an addition has been made to the grand prize winner reward: $1.200 (read here for more info)!
      Lastly, the patch introduces the Wildfest event. From February 19 to March 11, Hearthstone is going Wild! Initially, you will be able to draft cards in Arena mode that are exclusive to Wild. Second, even though Tavern Brawl is usually on Wild format, there will be two special Wild Brawls. The first one is called "Venture Into the Wild" and it will just contain premade Wild decks for each class. The second one, "The Wild Brawlisseum", is basically a Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl, but with a major improvement: the first run will be free for everyone. You can read more about Wildfest here.
      Below you can read the patch notes, which describe all the updates as well as various bug fixes. A massive change is that the timer for the first two turns will now be shorter!
      Daxxarri
      The tavern is buzzing with all the stuff that’s packed into this Hearthstone update! There’s a Ranked Play update, a Wild party, card changes, and a chance to save on packs with a new Mammoth Card Bundle! We managed to squeeze in some card backs and bug fixes too!

Players at Legend reset to rank 4, 0 stars. All ranks will have 5 stars. Starting in March, you will no longer earn the monthly card back by reaching Rank 20. Instead, you can earn each season’s card back by winning 5 games in Ranked Standard or Wild at any rank.

Three losses and your run comes to an end. Your first Brawliseum run is free! Additional runs are available for the same price as Arena tickets. Also like the Arena, prizes are based on number of wins, and follow the Arena reward structure.
      Year of the Mammoth Bundle For a limited time, purchase 10 packs each of Journey to Un’goro, Knights of the Frozen Throne, and Kobolds & Catacombs—a total of 30 packs!—for a special price.

      Year of the Mammoth – Acquired from winning five games in Ranked Play, March 2018.
      Bug Fixes & Updates Gameplay
      The turn timer for the first two turns of a match are now shorter, though they should still be significantly longer than most players take on those turns.

Nemsy Necrofizzle’s Hero frame is now golden if you have unlocked the golden Warlock Hero. Removed rarity gems from several summoned minions. Playing multiple copies of Temporus in a row will now queue up sequences of two turns for your opponent and two turns for you.

Fixed an issue that could cause Hearthstone to freeze when a spectated player disconnects and their opponent concedes. Tooltips for Hero Cards now appear correctly when spectating. Resolved a crash that could occur when drawing a Darkness Candle spell after The Darkness is no longer dormant. Grand Archivist can now correctly cast the Darkness Candle spell if it is present in a player’s deck. Resolved a crash that could occur when certain cost reducing cards were played. Resolved an unintended interaction that could occur with Anomalus, Taunt minions, and Commanding Shout. Added missing Collection Manager tooltips to several cards.

      According to the Principal Game Designer, Cubelock isn't as powerful as it seems.
      Cubelock won't be touched in the upcoming balance changes which, for many people, is a sign that the deck will completely dominate the meta after said changes become active.
      The deck is already prominent enough that people have started making false claims about it. A Reddit user claimed that he faced 17 Cubelocks in a row! However, Mike Donais put the matter into place by saying that there was no such streak in Blizzard's internal data and that Cubelock is currently the 12th best deck.
      He subsequently explained that he expects the deck to rise after the nerfs, but he's not too worried because it's a challenging (and expensive, I would add) deck to master. If the team feels that Cubelock is too powerful, though, they will evaluate it.
      mdonais
      I just checked the data, and no one played 17 cubelocks in a row today.
      If you are indeed having trouble with Cubelock there are several decks that beat it consistently right now. It is currently the 12th best deck.
      I did enjoy the title of your post though. (source)
       
       
      A couple people asked why the stats I mentioned don't metch VS power ranking so I looked up VS 79 and across all rankings Control Warlock is the 10th best deck. I assume they mix control and cube warlock in their stats. We have decks broken out a bit more but 10th gives you the general idea.
      Obviously after the nurfs it will be stronger since none of the cards in cubelock are being nurfed and that concerns me but it is a pretty challenging deck with a lot of opportunities to show off player skill. People will eventually get better at playing it, but people will also put in more weapon destruction or silence cards if it gets more popular.
      I am excited to see what people figure out after the patch. If Warlock is a big problem after people have some time to adjust and tune the new decks then we will look into it. I have said many times before that win rate is not the most important factor in our nurf decisions. How people feel matters more, so we will listen to players and make decisions based on that, just like we did in the past with Quest Rogue and Patron Warrior. (source)
