[Archived] S7 Hearthstone Legendary Warlock Aggro/Rush Deck

16 posts in this topic

I'm really missing some cards like Blood Knigh x2 and Mukla. Do you think it's a good idea to put a Power Overwhelming 2nd Shatted Sun Cleric and TBK? Or is there a better combo to play this deck?

I've played a modified version of this deck for a few matches, the only reason it's modified is because I don't have enough crafting materials for the last blood knight and king mukla. 

I subbed them in for a power overwhelming and a dark Iron dwarf. I assume it will do better when I get a better grasp on how to play it and when I get the last few cards.

 overall the its not bad at all, I got wrecked by a control warlock and a murlock, the murlock most likely had a better starting hand and just snowballed after that, and I got impatient with the control deck and when he got down to 9 health he pulled two molten giants for free and gave them taunt. 

 

Like I said, the deck is by no means bad. It's actually quite good; I just need to do some work on my patience and understanding of the whole thing.

Hey, Vinsonie

Mukla is not a must and you should do completely fine without it.

When it comes down to patience and understanding - knowing what sort of deck you play against will always help out and in order to know the meta game, you need to practice. I am sure next time you will be playing against giants, you will have them on your mind entire match and keep calculating whether they are able to play 2 giants and sunfury protector if you attack them this turn :)

Its the process of learning and it makes you a better player, however... unfortunately, there will always be games you lose simply because your opponent had a better hand.

STOP!!!! DO NOT MAKE THIS DECK!!! I don't know if it's because icyveins.com doesn't update it's material, and the game has been out for awhile now, or what, but this deck is DEFINITELY not "possibly legendary material." This deck will keep you around level 15. I have used it extensively, continually thinking (like a fool) that I might progress further. Do not waste your dust on this deck. Research further, like I should've, or trust your own instinct over this deck. Unless level 15 is where you aspire. There's NO way this deck takes to you level 5+. Don't do it, unless frustration, and losing, are additional goals.

Sometimes it's not the deck's fault, but the player's... :) All decks have been tested out by experienced, multi-legend HS player(s). The meta-game can always alter a viability of decks, but without actual constructive feedback (what seems to kill you, what class, when, why?) we cannot really improve anything... ^^

My intent wasn't to give feedback for improvement, simply to warn others before they wasted their dust. Sure, maybe it's me, anything is possible. I've tried playing the deck super aggressively (as suggested), and also less aggressive. I'm definitely no rocket scientist, but I understand the concepts of the game, and this deck hasn't taken me further than level 15, as I stated. Even if I am a total dolt, I think I should be able to take a deck that others claim is legendary ranked, and STILL get higher than level 15. Of course this is only my opinion, which is based on expectations I placed on the deck because of the claims made about it. After playing this deck extensively, my opinion still stands strong. This deck is shit (for lack of a better word), and if you need to be a brain surgeon to use it to gain a high rank, then that should be stated.

While I appreciate your candor, I don't really think you're being very objective here. As Oltier said, we don't just think up some decks and post them, hoping that they'll work. They are, all of them, tried out first and only when successful are they added. And there is no real reason why this deck should cap at rank 15, outside of player or some extreme meta-game circumstances. Without more information, we really can't say.

 

And also, I wouldn't worry so much about "wasting your dust". All of the cards in the deck (including Kind Mukla!) are usable and viable in a great many other decks, so even if this one isn't for you, you can always reuse them.

 

I hope you have better luck in the future.

This deck requires a lot of tweaking. It's not one you can just throw together and land some wins (like most decks). You have to play aggressively and you have to play smart. Otherwise, you will find yourself with no board control or in control with no cards to play. Mage, Priest and Hunter decks of any caliber pose a problem if you aren't proactive about your plays.

 

If you are new to this game, don't quite understand the concept of the infamous 'meta,' or still aren't quite certain about your own playing style, I strongly suggest not building this deck.

 

I got to rank 14 after removing King Muckla, Doomguard and a handful of others (I don't remember which ones) and replacing them with Molten Giant (absolutely essential for ANY warlock deck, IMHO), Sunwalker and Faceless Manipulator. It rounded the deck out and offered a little more board control in most situations.

Does nobody read? Instead of saying "I lost with this deck" try explaining the circumstances around it.

Essentially you should be able to fill out this stuff at least:

 

what seems to kill you;

what class;

when; and

why?

 

If you can't fill that out then all the drivel in the world is worthless.

Just like any game you can catch a bad luck streak. but you cant just throw a deck of card together and expect it to take you to legend.rank. thats not how it works. there isnt some super secret card list that will take you to the top... if that were the case then everyone out there would be playing the exact same deck. its all in how you play it. i for one have ALWAYS gone against the meta and threw out oddball stuff that people were not ready for. In MTG i played land destruction at a tourney and i hadnt seen it played in years... it was the cheapest deck ever and i finished 1st out of 47 players.

 

In hearthstone i took my warlock control deck to 12 and it only had 7 creatures in it. its more about how you play the deck then the deck itself. smart choices over fun choices and never over extend. i see SOOOO many people even in ranked that over extend like its their job. lol.

I would like to see a copy of the deck you used to get to 12, if possible. I'm a firm believer that you can't just take a deck and run with it. But I do believe that one can take a pre-made deck and tailor it to their own personal playing style, or create a whole new deck based on an idea they gained from that deck.

I like, like many people playing this game also play MTG. Although this game is much simpler it is still 80% the player responsible for the results. In MTG you can have two people playing the same exact deck and the better player will win nine out of ten times. Just having the cards doesn't mean much especially in an Aggro deck like this. Every turn need to be played perfectly and every trade on the board needs to be well thought out. If you are new to strategy games or just not good play a midrange deck as your starting turns are more about survival until you can play power cards to take over the game. I have been playing for three days and have made it past rank 15 with this deck (minus the legends).

Quick question:

 

Wouldn't it make more sense to have 2x Blood Imps in this deck instead of 2x Young Priestess? A Mage deck will kill her off before she is of any use (and so can a few others), but the Blood Imp's stealth keeps it on the board until an AOE is used generally. Plus you can safely play a Blood Imp turn 1 without worrying about it getting taken out (Elven Archer, etc.), allowing you to play any number of cards turn 2 that might otherwise have to wait until turn 3 to play/receive the +1 bonus.

I don't know I just got to level 10 with this exact deck. Seems pretty good to me.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration

      Blizzard have announced that the next Hearthstone year will be called The Year of the Mammoth. Six cards from the Classic set will be moved to a new Hall of Fame set, which can only be played in Wild.
      The announcement explains that the new Hall of Fame set will include cards that are currently in the Reward set, but the big news here is the six cards that will be leaving Standard. You can see Blizzard's reasons on the link above, but I've given a few notes in this article. Those cards are shown below.
      As well as the removed cards, there will be no adventures in 2017. Instead we will be given three full expansions that will be accompanied by a single-player mission, which will be used to enhance flavour, and offer challenges. This sounds like it will be along the lines of an adventure, but optional. I feel this is a great change, as it hurts nobody.

      Azure Drake is simply in too many decks. It is a hard card to nerf without making it weak, but it is pretty much as powerful as a 5-drop can be. Removing this to free up other 5-drops makes sense.

      The reasoning for Sylvanas is similar. Blizzard's words make a lot of sense on this one, and also give an insight into the future:
      Blizzard
      Similar to Azure Drake, it’s hard to see a card at the six mana cost out-value Sylvanas. In addition, Sylvanas has the most powerful Deathrattle effect in the game—as a comparison, the Priest card Mind Control costs 10 mana. We have exciting Deathrattle build-arounds coming soon, and in combination with Sylvanas, they would be too powerful for Standard. This seems to imply that N'Zoth, the Corruptor will be making a big comeback soon!

      I suspect a lot of people will be glad to see the back of Ragnaros. The Random element was often a contentious issue.

      The removal of Power Overwhelming is a bit of a surprise, but it seems that it has mainly been nerfed because of its strength in combinaton with cards like Leeroy Jenkins and Faceless Manipulator. I would also assume that Warlock is going to be getting some fun new toys to replace it.

      Ice Lance has been removed to remove Freeze Mage and allow new strategies to develop. It is also interesting that Blizzard mention it will allow them to make cards that copy cards. That could also apply to Power Overwhelming, so I would expect something along those lines to be in the next set.

      Conceal leaving will make sense to everyone. It allows Gadgetzan Auctioneer to survive as an interesting card, and removes the annoyance of not being able to interact with your opponent.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is called Blood Magic. It is the 88th Tavern Brawl.
      Blood Magic has a simple enough concept, which is that all spells cost Health instead of Mana. This could lead to an interesting metagame where healing is premium, and expensive burn spells are used to finish your opponent. Violet Illusionist is a key card in this Brawl, it allows the burn finish to only kill your opponent and not yourself. I expect to see it a lot over the coming days. 
      This is the third constructed Brawl in a row. It is an interesting Brawl to me, as I have felt that Blizzard have been trying to push this mechanic slowly on us over the last few expansions, but are terrified of it. In other card games, paying Health for cards has often been a broken mechanic, and I feel this might be a test to see how far they can push it.
      As always, feel free to leave your own lists in the comments.

      Blizzard have ended speculation as to the fate of Small-Time Buccaneer by announcing nerfs that will be active with Update 7.1. The ladder system will also see a small change.
      The changes were outlined by Blizzard in a Reddit post, and they should shift the metagame significantly.
      The big, although expected, news is that Small-Time Buccaneer will be nerfed to become a 1/1 rather than a 1/2. This puts it into turn 2 ping range and should stop the card getting out of control. It remains to be seen if it will still be playable considering it will still fetch patches, and still trade one Mana for two Mana in a lot of early game situations.
      Spirit Claws also sees a change, and although expected by many, was a minor surprise to me as Blizzard generally dislike messing with cards from adventures. The cost of the card has been raised from 1 Mana to 2 Mana. This might seem like a minor change, but the implications are huge. It will be very awkward in the early game with Bloodmage Thalnos and Wrath of Air Totem, and it will almost certainly see far less play after the update. 
      The ladder changes feel like Blizzard dipping their toe in the water, rather than a full on change. There will now be a series of Ranked Play floors, which are ranks that you can't de-rank below within a season. Those ranks are 5,10, and 15. This should help a little with ladder anxiety for many people.
      No date has been confirmed for the patch yet, but it seems likely that it will not be before the APAC Playoffs which end on February 25.
      Overall I feel that the changes are good. There will be chance for more sweeping changes when the new expansion hits later in the year, but these should tide us over in the meantime. Reno Jackson decks will be the obvious beneficiaries of the changes, but this means that Jade decks will be stronger. It will be fun to see where the meta settles down.
