Basic Warlock Deck

Recommended Posts

Guest Joao

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.

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.

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?

 

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.

Any suggestions for a newer player who has only purchased packs for Gadgetzan and Classic?

There are a ton of improvements that can be done with Gadgetzan and Classic cards, and I don't think I should be listing all of them. You could put Abyssal Enforcers in place of Hellfires, Faerie Dragons in place of Murloc Tidehunters, Azure Drakes in place of Gnomish Inventors, or a Mistress of Mixtures in place of one Razorfen Hunter, but those are just some of the swaps that you could do. I suggest asking about specific cards.

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.

      Mike Donais appeared yesterday on his daughter's stream, where he played some games and talked about various topics. He may also have inadvertently made a major reveal about two upcoming nerfs.
      A private message from Jared Noel, a former member of Hearthstone Analytics at Blizzard, appeared on stream. It was mentioned in it that changes would be made Conjurer's Calling and Extra Arms. The former will be increased to 4 mana, while the latter - even though it was one of buffed cards from The Boomsday Project - will be reverted to 3 mana.

      Now, Mike may have been replying "yes" to anything said above, but judging from his reaction this chat log wasn't meant to be shown on stream.
       
      The previous day from the stream, the Hearthstone developer had revealed that there will be an announcement on balance changes this week.
      mdonais
      Hopefully they are prioritizing a nerf patch before the Single Player Content patch
      Yep, we will give more info on balance changes this week hopefully. (source)
      During the stream, Donais also talked about a lot of other issues like card balance and Wild balance in particular, Arena changes, card design and more. Some interesting tidbits are that for Arena, they will revisit the old system, where you could see powerful cards and weak cards in the same pick - without this necessarily being a permanent change. There's also talk about upgrading Priest's board clears - one of the class's main weaknesses - since the team doesn't want to reprint the same cards.
