Warlock

Blizzard announced via the Hearthstone Forums today that two cards that have been hotly debated since the dawn of the latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzen, will be receiving changes. The first of the cards will be Small-Time Buccaneer will be getting its health changed from 2 to 1 which should allow for an easier time for players to deal with this minion. Secondly, Spirit Claws will now cost 2 instead of only 1. Shaman is clearly a strong deck and this should help with slowing down it’s ramp up. The other announcement included in this post has to do with Ranked Play changes, and ranking floors. As of now, the currently floor (the point at which you can no longer lose rank) is at 20. When 7.1 hits, this will add additional floors to ranks 15, 10, and 5. The explanation for this was outlined in Zeriyah’s post below:

 

Kazakus: Create Your Own Custom Spell!

by OtakuMZ on

Note: This article will be updated as soon as new details arise. Bookmark it for your convenience. Overview: Who is Kazakus? Kazakus is the first Tri-Class Legendary that was spoiled from the new Hearthstone Expansion Mean Streets of Gadgetzan (MSoG) and he is a real interesting one. First, lets take a look at his card text and stats: Mana Cost: 4 Attack: 3 Health: 3 Type: Minion Rarity: Legendary Class: Mage/Priest/Warlock Text: Battlecry: If your deck has no duplicates, create a custom spell. Custom spell? That’s the way we want it! In fact, the community was asking for this exact thing quite a long time. Ok, but what is this custom spell thing? You obviously cannot just write a custom text down in your time limit and then fire it off. The process of putting together a spell is a sequence of three discover mechanics, discovering a potion/ingredient each which

If you’ve watched my stream, you’ll know that this is one of my all time favorite decks to play. I hope you enjoy reading my take on the deck. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to ask. I stream Monday – Friday at twitch.tv/Alliestrasza Play Style My C’Thun Renolock is the same play style as most Handlock/Renolock lists. I enjoy C’Thun decks and I like to play this version on ladder when I’m looking to play a control type deck or I’m running into a lot of Control Warriors because of the favorable match up. The general strategy is to use Life Tap to gain card advantage and eventually use Reno to gain back the life you lost to your hero power. This strategy, coupled with the

Yogg-Saron is fun and he is a surprisingly good comeback card. That’s why the old god became more and more popular over the last weeks. I already covered his mechanic in the Yogg-Saron Infographic on June 24th. With the increasing appearance in the game, there are viable decks for a lot of classes already available. Today, I will bring you at least one deck for every class, that you too will be able to take the god of death into the new ranked season (S28). I can only encourage you to try at least some of the decks. They may not only be viable on ladder but also incredibly fun. The playstyles of these compositions are a bit more demanding compared to cookie cutter decks though, but in the end, if you become able to master them, they can feel very rewarding. Be sure to check out the infographic article I mentioned above. In it, give you a lot

 

The Demon Tribe – There is Hope!

by OtakuMZ on

I was really sad when I saw no demons in the Old Gods Expansion with many really good ones, e.g. Voidcaller and Mal’Ganis, fading out. But wait! Only recently, Ben Brode commented a post on reddit exactly on this topic. Thanks Ben, you saved my day!

Introduction Newer Zoolocks have undergone some change, it has gotten a bit more bursty and new cards rotated in while old one rotated out, e.g. Forbidden Ritual and Darkshire Councilman have replaced cards Imp-losion and Haunted Creeper. Leeroy Jenkins is also back in a big fashion. One choice though struck me as odd: the inclusion of Crazed Alchemist. Without proper reflection, my initial thoughts were, that the card was probably chosen to get off some additional burst if needed or preventing e.g. an injured Darkshire Councilman from dying. In some situation this might be an useful application, but the general assumption was way off the mark. Crazed Alchemist – A Surprisingly Effective Tech Choice Looking at the minions in the deck, apart from the already mentioned Darkshire Councilman, changing high health minion’s attack and health to generate burst, seems not likely to be the reasoning behind the inclusion of Crazed Alchemist. To find the answers,

Well met! It’s OtakuMZ again with another Hearthstone Infographic. Before I start, I am happy to announce that I am now a proud member of the blizzpro team – feelsgoodman. Thank you to all of you for giving me such a warm welcome and help to settle in. For you, the readers, this means for you that I will publish infographics on a regular basis in the future. The exact schedule is not definite at the moment. With my templates finished, I will be able to produce infographics in a shorter amount of time. I think we will settle the releases somewhere in between every 1-2 weeks . Back to the Topic at Hand … This time I dove into oblivion and return to you with Bane of Doom (BoD). This card has almost everything the Demon tribe offers in it. As I was collecting ideas for future infographics I realized that there

It’s a bit unusual OTK deck with a demon tech as a 2nd win condition. Strategy As I mentioned the deck has 2 main win strategies. Try to keep the board clear until you have collected all your combo pieces and finish your opponent off with the combo of: Arcane Golem + 1-4 (Dark Peddler) Power Overwhelming + Faceless Manipulator. Your second win condition is to overwhelm your opponent by pulling out Mal’Ganis with Voidcaller and copy it with Faceless Manipulator. Deck Mulligan Always

Zoo, originally known as Board Control Warlock, is a deck that has its roots back in the closed beta.  Abusing a plethora of overpowered and sticky minions (most of which are now nerfed) and the infamous old Blood Imp (used to give +1 hearth to every minion in the way Stormwind Knight does), the Warlock deck was the deck to beat. In February 2014 Reynad (TempoStorm) popularized a new version of the deck, including cards like Shieldbearers and Scarlet Crusaders. Zoo became even stronger after the first wing of Naxxramas: by

I am Dethelor and this is my second article in the F2K Deck of the Week series. This week I’m presenting a unique deck firstly popularized in my series against Lifecoach in the WCA Qualifiers. This deck is created by our team captain, Theude and is a new take on Control Warlock – combining elements from Handlock and Malylock. It sacrifices Sludge Belchers and some situation cards in favor of Dragons and Blackwing Corruptors. This is the list I used against Lifecoach, it’s a pretty greedy one but playing 3 dragons increases the chances of having enablers for your
