This guide contains detailed Strategy, Mulligan, and deck-building information to help you play Curse Imp Warlock in The Maw and Disorder expansion meta.

Curse Imp Warlock is a hybrid deck that utilises the aggressive early game of imp-based Zoo Warlock decks to secure the board, while it uses its powerful card-draw engine of Impending Catastrophe to transition into a powerful late-game deck that utilises Curse cards like Za'qul to close out the game.

Imp Curse Warlock Deck Strategy

Imp Curse Warlock starts out strong in the early game, dominating the board with cheap minions like Flame Imp, Bloodbound Imp, and Flustered Librarian. This advantage can be compounded further through the use of Vile Library while also being able to comfortably draw cards with Impending Catastrophe.

As the deck reaches the mid game, it can continue its aggression to close out the game if it still has momentum from the early game, ending the game as an Aggro deck. Alternatively, it can use its strong card draw to transition into a longer game, focusing on playing Curse cards like Sira'kess Cultist to deal increasing damage to opponents to inevitably kill them over time.

Against Aggro, you should look to make use of the additional removal cards like Grimoire of Sacrifice, Touch of the Nathrezim, and Drain Soul to stay in strong control of the board throughout the game.

Against Control, you should focus on maximising the value of your Curse throughout the game by pairing Battlecries like Sira'kess Cultist with Brann Bronzebeard and Dragged Below with Tamsin Roame to ensure you can full maximise the damage from your Curse during the game.

Imp Curse Warlock Deck Card Swaps
