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 :)

      Dave Kosak is here with a new Hearthside Chat to talk about Dungeon Runs. He also showcased a new legendary card from the new expansion!
      We've already talked about Dungeon Runs, one of the new features that Kobolds & Catacombs will bring. Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak explains in this latest Hearthside Chat the design process behind Dungeon Runs.
      Dave presented some unique elements only present in Dungeon Runs. For example, there is a card you can pick called Cloak of Invisibility, which has a Passive effect of giving your minions permanent Stealth.
      He also gave some insight on the encounters. Some Dungeon Runs can have thematic encounters, like there's a band of Troggs or Trolls you will have to beat. As far as the Trolls are concerned, Battlecrier Jin'zo has a passive effect that is similar to Brann Bronzebeard, which you and him can both benefit from! Similarly, Spiritspeaker Azun's passive works like Baron Rivendare for both parties, while Voodoomaster Vex combines both of these passive effects!
      The narrator, that will be guiding you through your Dungeon Run, is King Togwaggle - the king of the Kobolds himself! He is also going to be an actual card available in the next expansion:

      Images from Hearthpwn
      Here's the official blog post with everything you need to know about Dungeon Runs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What’s a Dungeon Run?
      Dungeon Run is a new insanely fun, single-player “rogue-like” mode where you’ll face deadly encounters and collect incredible Treasures to build a deck worthy of a hero!
      When your Dungeon Run starts, you’ll choose a Hero and receive a starting deck consisting of 10 cards. You’ll use it to overcome eight encounters of increasing difficulty (chosen randomly from a huge pool of 48 possible encounters!) to clear the run.

      That initial deck might be enough to help you squeak by your first opponent, but you’ll need to get stronger if you hope to clear the whole run. Each time you defeat a Dungeon Run encounter, you’ll be given an opportunity to “level up” your Dungeon Run deck with themed sets of three cards appropriate to your class. Occasionally, you’ll also be able to pick from a selection of three incredibly powerful Treasure cards—non-collectible cards and abilities made just for this mode that are too blatantly overpowered to see normal play.
      You’ll need all that power—as well as your wits—because these encounters can be fiendishly difficult. Victory is not assured, and each encounter has its own unique perils. If one of them gets the better of you, defeat is permanent, so you’ll have to start a different run with a whole new deck!
      If you manage to complete a full Dungeon Run with each of the nine Classes—no mean feat!—you’ll add the Candle King card back to your collection.

      In this article, we are covering two new cards: Temporus, a Priest legendary minion, and Benevolent Djinn, a Paladin common minion.
      Benevolent Djinn was revealed earlier today by Thai player Anothersayoran1. The name of the card was officially confirmed by Puffin.

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is difficult to judge this card without seeing it in action. It’s comparable to Friendly Bartender: while the Djinn heals for more, its 2 attack value is a bit mediocre for a 3-mana minion. Shaman’s Hot Spring Guardian is slightly better, since it has Taunt and a targeted heal effect. Then again, Djinn also acts like a Taunt, in the sense that your opponent probably has to spend early resources to remove its powerful effect. Both cards, though, are beaten by Tar Creeper.
      This make the Djinn a great anti-aggro tool. Additionally, it synergises well with Blackguard and its Elemental tribe means that maybe we’ll get to see an Elemental Paladin. This is definitely a powerful Arena card. But can it secure a spot in constructed mode? It looks difficult, since Paladin already has some great 3-mana minions.

      This intriguing minion was revealed by Eurogamer. Its sister site, Metabomb, sat down with Peter Whalen and Ben Thompson to talk about this card. Both developers think that Temporus can be run in either the classic OTK Priest (Divine Spirit + Inner Fire) or in two new versions of Dragon Priest: a more midrange one and an OTK one with Malygos. 
      It would be interesting to see what it's interaction is going to be with Brann Bronzebeard. Temporus is a "high risk, high reward" card and, even if you don't like it or it turns out to be bad, you'd still have to commend its design.

      The 2016 Hearthstone World Champion revealed this rare Druid card.
      Grizzled Guardian was unveiled on Pavel's YouTube channel. It's a rare Druid Beast, that costs 8 mana and has 3 attack and 5 health. It has Taunt and Deathrattle: "Recruit 2 minions that cost (4) or less". Pavel's video is in Russian, but you can enable accurate English subtitles to see what the World Champion has to say about that card.
      After watching Pavel's video, I am convinced that Grizzled Guardian isn't as bad as it looks at first sight. Sure, its stats are garbage, but you should also factor in the stats of the minions it pulls from your deck when it dies. Still, it's hard to see it fit into the current meta. Perhaps, it can see play when the Year of the Kraken sets rotate out of Standard. It also weakens the 8-mana slot for Evolve and similar effect.
      What's your opinion on Grizzled Veteran? As always, all the cards of the new expansion can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.
      PS: Turns out it's not Hogger 3.0 :(

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      A few days ago I posted a cheap priest deck. I have no idea how many actually have been interested in it but maybe we had some none registered visitors who knows. So here another deck. Again inspired by Chump but I had a similar deck before. Compared to Chumps' version I replaced 2x Twilight Summoner with 2x Spawn of N'Zoth (beause Epics are not budget :D) and I didn't want to craft Forbidden Ritual myself so I've put in 2 commons instread, Mortal Coil and Zealous Initiate.
      It's technically a Zoo but it plays differently which is a nice change to the "we know it all" stuff :)
      Total Arcane Dust Cost: 1500
      2x Flame Imp 1x Mortal Coil 2x Possessed Villager 2x Sanguine Reveler 2x Voidwalker 1x Zealous Initiate 2x Dire Wolf Alpha 2x Volatile Elemental 2x Darkshire Councilman 2x Devilsaur Egg 2x Spawn of N'Zoth 2x Unwilling Sacrifice 1x Void Terror 2x Ravenous Pterrordax 1x Cobalt Scalebane 2x Despicable Dreadlord 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAf0GBMQIxQmNrQLKywINMNkHwgi0rAL2rgKNrwLnwQKrwgK0xAKXywL3zQKmzgKJ4gIA
      Guide:
      This deck is basically a Zoo, you can find a well written guide here, but maybe somewhat slower and less reliable due to the fact that you need to combo with your deathrattle cards but the value you get out of them should make up for it. As with any Zoo deck you want to put early pressure on your opponent and establish board control with cheap minions and playing on curve.
      In your starting hand you want to see a couple of 1 mana minions and a 2 (and/or maybe a 3 mana cost) mana cost to put something on the board and plan for your next turns. Flame Imp is always a good choice as well as Sanguine Reveler and a 1, 2 or maybe a 3 mana deathrattle minion to combo with. Against more aggressive decks a Voidwalker could be a good choice as well, against slower decks you might consider to keep a Devilsaur Egg. To be able to play a Darkshire Councilman on turn 3 is great too.
      You have good tools to maintain board control (besides the minions you already have) like Volatile Elemental which has great synergy with your cannibal cards like Ravenous Pterrordax. Unwilling Sacrifice is a bit like Deadly Shot and needs accurate play to be not a waste but the potential value you can get out of it is great. And later in the game Despicable Dreadlord helps a lot to maintain board control.
      Have fun :)
