Warlock


Info

Strategy

The most effective Warlock decks are defined by the fact that their hero power Life Tap costs health in addition to mana. This helps them play otherwise situational cards like Molten Giant in slow control oriented decks or very aggressive decks that aim to end the game before the health loss becomes a factor. The card draw effect also lets them play strong minions like Twilight Drake and Mountain Giant while removing the need to include many otherwise weak cards for drawing more such as Loot Hoarder and Acolyte of Pain. Numerous Taunt minions are often used for protecting your lowered life pool.

Strategy and gameplay

Many newer players may find themselves initially turned off from the warlock as the class makes heavy use of "self-abuse" mechanics in order to gain card advantage Sometimes, you’ll find yourself in a position where you can easily play your whole hand while your opponent is still holding on to close to the maximum of 10 cards. Unless you can win the and summon more minions. Warlock cards generally offer a lower mana cost and higher power than their neutral and other class counterparts, but will come at an alternative price.

This style of play is most evident in their Hero Power Anduin Wrynn with the basic priest Hero Power Lesser Heal A Hero Power is a special ability displayed to the right of each hero s portrait.

The warlock featuresSpecial attraction a variety of Demon Demons are a type of minion. Almost all Demons are specific to the warlock class, and are often unusually powerful for their mana-cost, but come with a negative effect for playing them. For a list hearthstone -class minions, many of whom offer greater power but will drain the warlock`s resources in exchange.

Battlecry: Destroy one of your Mana Crystals.Yes, he ll fight for you. BUT hearthstone is a cheaper defensive minion but lowers mana Mana is the resource used in Hearthstone to play cards and use Hero Powers, each of which has a mana cost that must be paid to use it. The supply of mana is represented by hearthstone , while the Void Terror Void Terror Set: Classic Type: Minion Subtype: Demon Class: Warlock Rarity: Rare Cost: 3 Attack: 3 Health: 3 Abilities: Battlecry, Destroy Tags: Positional effect Battlecry: Destroy the minions on either side of this minion and hearthstone can be a huge threat but requires the sacrifice of up to 2 of the warlock`s other minions.

This reckless nature extends to warlock spells as well.

Other warlock-specific cards require the hero to discard Discard effects are effects which cause the player to discard cards from their hand. Discarded cards are removed from the game, without activating Deathrattles. Discard effects are most commonly found on warlock cards. Discard effects hearthstone their other cards to be put into play. Soulfire Soulfire Set: Basic Type: Spell Class: Warlock Cost: 1 Abilities: Deal damage, Discard Tags: Random Deal 4 damage.

Battlecry: Discard two random cards.Summoning a doomguard is risky. Someone is hearthstone all featureSpecial attraction a very low mana cost for their power. A notable strategy to get around this downside is to continually play cards until only these remain, effectively negating the discard effect. Playing around discard effects is a key mechanic of the warlock class.

Due to the warlock`s "self-abuse" mechanics, a strategy involving Lord Jaraxxus Lord Jaraxxus Set: Classic Type: Minion Subtype: Demon Class: Warlock Rarity: Legendary Cost: 9 Attack: 3 Health: 15 Abilities: Battlecry, Equip, Replace Hero Power Tags: Hero Power-related, Weapon-generating Battlecry: Destroy your hero and replace it hearthstone can be used to heal your hero back to 15 hp when your health has dropped too low. This strategy is employed by many warlocks so your opponent may be expecting it. Although it is a powerful card that may turn the tide of a game, it is best not to play Lord Jaraxxus too early in case your opponent has been hiding large amounts of burst Burst damage or burst potential refers to a player s ability to deal a large amount of damage in one or two turns, allowing a player to finish off a previously damaged opponent, or deal an damage in his hand.

The warlock`s Life Tap Life Tap Type: Hero Power Class: Warlock Cost: 2 Abilities: Deal damage, Draw cards Hero PowerDraw a card and take 2 damage.See this card on Hearthpwn data page] Life Tap is the warlock s basic Hero hearthstone is useful for gaining card count advantages without wasting spots in your deck with draw cards. This ability is what makes warlock succesful as an aggro class, and quite possibly the only class with a competitive zoo deck. These early game rush decks often utilize low cost cards with penalties like Blood Imp as well as efficient, high-quality neutral sticky minions to counter their best counter, AoEs. Especially in conjunction with heavy Life Tap Life Tap Type: Hero Power Class: Warlock Cost: 2 Abilities: Deal damage, Draw cards Hero PowerDraw a card and take 2 damage.See this card on Hearthpwn data page] Life Tap is the warlock s basic Hero hearthstone usage, aggressive warlocks are relatively easy for opponent`s to finish after they`ve run out of resources.

Warlocks are also considered a suitable class for late game, as their life tap allows them to consistently draw the cards they need to survive, until expensive and powerful cards can be put into play. With a large amount of card draw at their disposal it is also easy for them to create combos which can create strong monsters such as Void Terror Void Terror Set: Classic Type: Minion Subtype: Demon Class: Warlock Rarity: Rare Cost: 3 Attack: 3 Health: 3 Abilities: Battlecry, Destroy Tags: Positional effect Battlecry: Destroy the minions on either side of this minion and hearthstone . Although many cards inflict self-harm, other warlock cards can offset this by healing the warlock such as Drain Life Drain Life Set: Basic Type: Spell Class: Warlock Cost: 3 Abilities: Deal damage, Restore Health Deal 2 damage. Restore 2 Health to your hero."I ve just sucked one year of your life away."See this card on hearthstone and Sacrificial Pact Sacrificial Pact Set: Basic Type: Spell Class: Warlock Cost: 0 Abilities: Destroy, Restore Health Tags: Demon-related Destroy a Demon. Restore #5 Health to your hero.This is the reason that Demons never really become friends with hearthstone . Molten Giants were very effective in warlock decks with their self-harming nature before their nerf, and could be played for little or no mana late into the game. Still most powerful when used by warlocks, Molten Giants have been replaced by Mountain Giants and Twilight Drakes.

Common deck types

The warlock can use a wide variety of deck archetypes to great effect.

A highly popular deck is the Zoolock, named because of its focus on low mana-cost, high `value` minions. Zoolocks aim to seize board control in the early and mid-game with effective minion trading, creating an insurmountable advantage before the opponent`s larger minions can even be played. Life Tap Life Tap Type: Hero Power Class: Warlock Cost: 2 Abilities: Deal damage, Draw cards Hero PowerDraw a card and take 2 damage.See this card on Hearthpwn data page] Life Tap is the warlock s basic Hero hearthstone is critical in ensuring the warlock has a continual supply of minions and can refill the board in case of removal. Infamous for its power and efficiency, the Zoolock is a common choice at all skill levels. Its low crafting cost also makes the deck perhaps the easiest competitive choice for many new players.

The introduction of Malchezaar`s Imp with One Night in Karazhan has given rise to the Discardlock, a discard effect synergy-oriented version of the traditional Zoolock, negating the drawbacks of cards like Soulfire Soulfire Set: Basic Type: Spell Class: Warlock Cost: 1 Abilities: Deal damage, Discard Tags: Random Deal 4 damage. Discard a random card.Are you lighting a soul on fire? Or burning someone with your OWN soul? hearthstone and Doomguard Doomguard Set: Classic Type: Minion Subtype: Demon Class: Warlock Rarity: Rare Cost: 5 Attack: 5 Health: 7 Abilities: Battlecry, Charge, Discard Tags: Random Charge. Battlecry: Discard two random cards.Summoning a doomguard is risky. Someone is hearthstone and even turning them to positives through cards like Silverware Golem.

Another strategy is the Handlock, intentionally putting the player at risk to use devastating minions. Once again Life Tap Life Tap Type: Hero Power Class: Warlock Cost: 2 Abilities: Deal damage, Draw cards Hero PowerDraw a card and take 2 damage.See this card on Hearthpwn data page] Life Tap is the warlock s basic Hero hearthstone plays a key role in this deck, where the extra cards enable the Mountain Giant and Twilight Drake. These large minions, when combined with the Taunt-granting battlecries of Defender of Argus and Sunfury Protector, can wrench board control back into the Handlock`s grasp. From there, the warlock can safely look for finisher combos such as Leeroy Jenkins and Power Overwhelming Power Overwhelming Set: Hall of Fame Type: Spell Class: Warlock Rarity: Common Cost: 1 Abilities: Destroy Tags: Triggered effect Give a friendly minion +4/+4 until end of turn. Then, it dies. Horribly.We cannot even describe hearthstone .

Warlock is also probably the best class for decks built around Reno Jackson, since Life Tap Life Tap Type: Hero Power Class: Warlock Cost: 2 Abilities: Deal damage, Draw cards Hero PowerDraw a card and take 2 damage.See this card on Hearthpwn data page] Life Tap is the warlock s basic Hero hearthstone makes it possible to reliably draw Reno early, which is crucial for crushing aggro decks.

Main Synergies

  • Leeroy Jenkins buffed with Power Overwhelming and cloned with Faceless Manipulator is a common lategame finisher.
  • Ancient Watcher combined with Shadowflame provides strong board clear.
  • The Coin into Life Tap on turn 1 is a good play should the player value a random card from his deck more than The Coin.

Common Weaknesses

  • Heavy use of Life Tap can bring your life total low enough to be burst down by decks that otherwise don`t have enough of direct damage to be a threat - moderation and healing cards such as Earthen Ring Farseer and Siphon Soul are often crucial.
  • Cards like Soulfire and Doomguard can discard key cards needed to win.
