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 :)

      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.

      Two new cards from Rastakhan's Rumble were revealed in an official blog post detailing the story of the upcoming expansion.
      The first card revealed is a neutral Pirate:

      It's important to clarify that the Overkill effect triggers only on your turn (ie. when you attack and not when you are attacked) and this minion will draw you cards even if it dies as long as you Overkill something. Other than that, it feels slow for an aggro Pirate deck and its low Health means it can be killed easily. Perhaps it could make for a decent Arena card.
      The awesomely named second card of the day is Heavy Metal!

      Here is a spell with the Geosculptor Yip effect, at a reduced cost and minus the body. Interestingly enough, this card would have been better if it costed 5 or 7 mana since it would fit in Odd Warrior, a deck that heavily utilises armoring up. Even Warrior might become a thing in the future, but still with Yip never really having caught on, it's really hard to see this card fit into any Warrior deck.
      The blog post itself is interesting, since it gives an introduction to the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. We see Rikkar - the aspiring Troll champion, who is also the protagonist of the Rumble Run - entering the Gurubashi Arena and trying to pick which team he is going to side with. The Tigers - the Paladin team - are described as the returning champions of Rastakhan's Rumble. We are eager to see what's next for this expansion!

      The Hearthstone subreddit interviewed Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden on the upcoming Rastakhan's Rumble expansion.
      You can read the entire interview here.
      Interview Highlights
      Rastakhan's Rumble has been in development for almost a year, from January 2018. Spirits will be appearing in the Arena. We won't see much of old Keywords in Rastakhan's Rumble, but they are open to revisiting them (Hero and highlander cards, Inspire and C'Thun were mentioned). One of the design lessons Team 5 has learned is that they want more build-around cards that have cheap rarity (like the Spirits). With Rastakhan's Rumble, they wanted classes to feel like a team. Captain Hooktusk, the Rogue champion, is an original Hearthstone character. Pirates are mostly in Rogue in this expansion. They are still pretty aggressive, but there are some more expensive pirates in this set.

      The reveal season for Rastakhan's Rumble starts with a Paladin card.
      Every recent Hearthstone expansion has had its own series of funny blog posts and videos. Blizzard collaborated with Wronchi in The Boomsday Project and now they are back for Rastakhan's Rumble.
      Hearthstone's heroes are waiting in line to get tickets to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Everyone has the gold for it, except from poor (literally) Uther. He does get a card reveal though and the story will be continued from what was teased in the end.

      People have been comparing this card to Evasion and Ice Block. It certainly has it pros and cons. You can play it proactively, even at high health and you can combine it perfectly with a weapon swing or powerful healing spells. On the other hand, Time Out! requires more setting-up and better game knowledge of what cards your opponent might have on his/her hand. This card could potentially go into a Control Paladin deck, along with Shirvallah, the Tiger legendary Loa minion.
      What do you think?
