Basic Warlock Deck

21 posts in this topic

Awesome basic deck , i had great success with this deck and love the new explanations and card swaps for those who unlocked the full naxxaramas adventure, since most of the new players decided to unlock the set first before going to arena smile.png when will this expand to the other basic decks in icy veins? thanks and keep up the good work smile.png

Hi Sottle!
Love your guides!
 

Just wanted to know your thoughts about Felguard.
Is it good?
If so, do you think it would be a good card swap / would it fit in this deck?
Thanks!

No, Felguard is awful. To understand why, imagine playing it on turn 3. It's cost you the 3 Mana you spent to play it in the first place, then 1 additional Mana for each turn up until you have 10. So if the game lasts that long, you've essentially played a 10 Mana 3/5.

Hey,

I built this deck and it's working pretty well for me. I recently got an Imp-losion from a pack, and I feel like it has good synergy with the Stormwind Champion and Frostwolf Warlord. What card would you recommend removing for it?

Thank you!

Nice basic deck maybe replace 1 crocolisk with 1 succubus and chage a soulfire for a drain life.
Succubus is really op dont care of the discard;
and drain life grant the possibility of one more life tap

Succubus is pretty weak, it just trades evenly with 3/2s, so there really isn't much benefit to it. Drain Life is just really overcosted for what it does. Life Gain effects shouldn't really be factored into a cards value, since they have no effect on the board, and minimal heals like Drain Life are pretty negligible.

Hy Sottle

I really like your Guides.

I've got the mage and warlock guide so far and I came pretty far.

 

I've got Lord Jaraxxus from a card pack and I put it in my Deck since I haven't get warlock to lvl 10.

What do you think i should trade him for?

 

And since I haven't all cards I put Voidwalker in. It saved my boardcontroll pretty often and I kind of like him in my playstyle.

Do you think i can put him in my deck?

And what do you think I can trade him?

 

(sorry for my bad english, I hope you understand it)

Hi,

Just wondered why you don't suggest Azure Drake for a Gnomish in the card swaps section. Seems like a perfect replacement.

Seems like an ommision not to have Azure Drake in the Card Swap section, as it seems like a great replacement for Gnomish Inventor. Thoughts?

I think death's bite and haunted creeper are enough activators for execute.
So in that case I cut off Eleven archer for voodoo doctor.

It is a basic deck. There are way too many swaps to be included in a guide. And yes, you should swap Azure Drake for a Gnomish Inventor.

 

I think death's bite and haunted creeper are enough activators for execute.

Wrong thread my friend. However, Death's Bite and Haunted Creeper are enough activators for Execute. However, I think that Haunted Creeper should go in place of one archer and one Crocolisk or one Razorfen and DBs in place of Reapers. Running 6 weapons is a bit too much for a midrange/control because you will often not have a good target for a weapon hit and the weapons will clog up your hand. Aggro always has a target, so you go through the weapons quicker.

Thanks for the guide. I've aquired a couple Darkbombs, Which I hear are great for pretty much all Warlock decks. What do you think are the best cars to swap out for them.

I don't like Murloc Tidehunters and Razorfen Hunters, so either swap those or swap it for Shadow Bolt as it does basically the same.

Would there be any use for Kel'Thuzad/Thaurissan/Loatheb?  And/or Gurubashi?  

Overall, I was thinking take out gnomish for Azure, Yeti for Shredder, senjin for sludge... One boulderfist for argent commander (I got that as a drop, serves me wonderfully well usually), 

The only thing I'm noticing is that now I have 4-4s and 7-5s so the opposite problem as too many 4s! haha.  

I was wondering if perhaps I should drop one sludge for one senjin to even the curve out a little bit...

 

Also would Kel'thuzad would be a useful replacement with Stormwind if I swapped out Frostwolf with Loatheb?  I usually try to Loatheb to buy me time, belcher/Gurubashi/argent, then Kelthuzad if I'm lucky and then clear the board with trades and rezz them again.   I tend to find that people clear my minions out quite quickly lately, especially if I face a mage or a better-decked Warlock.

Loatheb in place of Frostwolf Warlord, KT in place of Champion, just as you list later in the comment (which I didn't read whole before replying :D ). Gurubashis in place of Murloc Tidehunters. I wouldn't really swap Commander and Boulderfist. Other swaps are good.

The curve doesn't look that strange after the swaps. No need to smooth it out. 

Now start building a Zoo deck, that would increase your winrate a lot.

I'm primarily focusing on building cards for mage and getting cards that work well across decks, so I'm mostly trying to work in what I have that makes the most sense.

 

I had already swapped out tidehunter for imp gang boss and creeper for croc and one hunter for the one Juggler I got from a pack...  I put in 2xgurubashi for the second hunter and the warlord... I think I would rather do 1 gurubashi and a Loatheb and KT for champion because gurubashi can sometimes just fail really hard and those two are much more reliable/consistent. 

 

I just started around Thanksgiving, so trying to work around my limited thing is both fun and confusing! :)

I modded the(basic warlock) deck, i switched the murloc tide hunter for target dummy, acidic swamp ooz for blood imp, and river crocolisk for voidwalker. That setup is running me about 3/5 win to loss, the original is running me at 1/5

Target Dummy does absolutely nothing. My winrate with this deck was 91% (10 wins / 1 loss). Blood Imp is not a strong card, especially not against aggressive decks. Crocolisk for Voidwalker is somewhat acceptable.

      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 1/10M NH, 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
      Xoxo

      Introdution:
      <Turkeyism> is a (7/7M EN) (2/3M ToV) (3/10M NH) weekend raiding guild on Stormrage US. Our guild was originally formed in early 2013 as a 10man Heroic raid team with the goal to have fun and get as far as possible. After having defeated Heroic Garrosh in Siege of Ogrimmar and ending the Mists of Pandaria expansion ranked 19th on Stormrage, our team decided to push forward into Warlords of Draenor. With the introduction of Mythic in 6.0, our team set out to expand our roster, overcome new challenges, and defeat the final boss on Mythic, all while maintaining a fun atmosphere to raid in. We finished Warlords of Draenor ranking 14th on Stormrage and managed to get 27 of our raiders the Felsteel Annihilator mount from Mythic Archimonde. We are now currently raiding Mythic Nighthold and looking for additional players (870 ilvl+) who seek a challenge and want to have fun.
      Raid Times:
      Friday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      Saturday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      <Turkeyism> is a weekend raiding guild that raids two nights a week from 7:30 – 11:30pm EST on Friday and Saturdays.
      In Demand Classes:
      Paladin (Holy/ret)
      Druid (Balance)
      Priests (Shadow)
      Hunters (Marksmen/Beastmaster)
      Warlocks (Affliction/Demonology)
      Monks (Mistweaver/Windwalker)
      (We prefer the classes listed above but all exceptional applicants will be considered.)
      Guild Expectations:
      So as a guild there are a few things we expect our raiders and recruits to do/know.
      First, we expect our raiders/recruits to know their class fairly well. They should also have a good grasp of the encounters by either having first-hand experience, or by watching tutorials and kill videos online. Knowledge is power as the saying goes.
      Second, we expect players who wish to be part of the core raid team to understand that attendance and showing up on time to raid is important to the success of the guild. We understand when real life issues come up, however it isn’t fair to the other 19 players who showed up if you continuously miss raid because of “reasons”. This is why we want to make sure that our raiders/recruits understand that by joining our raid team, you are making a commitment to the rest of the group to show up every week. Ultimately, we are all individuals working together towards a common goal and our success or failure as a group depends upon people committing to the team.
      Third, we expect our raiders/recruits to be able to take criticism from others. If we notice that you could improve in any manner, we won’t hesitate to point it out. We won't ever attack others for making mistakes, but we will politely let them know of their blunders and how they could improve.
      Fourth, raiders/recruits should be willing to sit out for certain encounters. We know it isn’t the most fun thing to have to sit out on a boss fight, especially if there is loot or if you’ve worked hard getting to that encounter. However, not all fights are created equal and sometimes we have to ask players to sit out in order to have the best group composition to complete the encounter. Your willingness to sit out won’t be forgotten and we try to make sure that everyone gets a chance to kill the boss and get loot.
      Fifth, all recruits are expected to present WarcraftLogs in their applications. This will give us an idea of how you handle mechanics and how well you performed. We understand that your time is valuable and so is ours. By looking at your WarcraftLogs we can get an idea if you can perform within the required range were looking for before bringing you in to raid with us.
      Finally, our guild is made up of players in their early 20’s/mid-30’s and our chat can sometimes get spicy and very adult oriented. We can sometimes talk about off the wall stuff, some of which can get very “Rated R” very fast.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
