Hey guys, Mountain Giants are back in town so I needed to share this with you! Deck is really sweet on ladder at the moment, so I fully recommend it. Let's take a look on some quick tips before you take it for a spin.

Guide

No matter who you play against you want to keep Possessed Lackey, he is just that good.

Versus aggro you want cheap cards, everything except Dark Pact is good, and Hellfire is also solid. Keeping Lesser Amethyst Spellstone is also an option, especially if you already have Kobold Librarian ready. Versus control you want Mountain Giant and Rin, the First Disciple as well as afformentioned Possessed Lackey, and mulligan everything else.

General

This Warlock has a great game against Priest compared to other Warlock decks, as he has just one answer against Mountain Giant, so you can just turbo kill him with T4 Giant into T5 Faceless Manipulator.

Against decks where Rin is important you want to play her and immediately kill her with Dark Pact so he cannot silence her away. You can shot down aggro hard on T6 thanks to Dark Pact in combination with Possessed Lackey, where you heal out of range and get Voidlord immediately.

Faceless Manipulator is great against other Warlocks, where you just copy their Carnivorous Cube, getting the great deathrattle effect!

Deck is extremely good against Paladin and very good against Rogue as it just crushes aggro, have a decent game against Priest and Quest Mage thanks to Dirty Rat and Mountain Giant, still OK matchup against Druid and unfavorable matchup versus other Warlocks. This deck works a bit differently than Cubelock, but the main difference is that it does a better job against aggro, AND dodges weapon removal very nicely, which is seeing some extra play nowadays.
