The "Amazing" budget Control-demon-lock?

I decided to make this deck after noticing the lack of budget control decks at the moment, and how many new players are being forced to play aggro decks (which i know i would have hated) and so i developed this deck to with only a few commons and mostly basic cards to try and help new players out.

Feel free to post below and ask about any cards that you have unpacked and are wondering if you could fit them in :D

Card Replacements... for those people that find commons to hard ;)


 Furious Ettin

Basically any large drop would work as a substitute, preferably with taunt, so if you dont have any, your best bet would be  Lord of the Arena

Swift Messenger

If you dont have this card, the closest thing will be Reckless Rocketeer it wont be nearly as good, but it will work.


as you will see in the videos below, this card is essential, and majority of decks run this card, if you don't have it, just craft it. Although if you have Ironbeak Owl you can run that instead.

Fiendish Circle

this card is a great card to use in combo with Sacrificial Pact so if u take this card out, i would recommend playing 1 Drain Soul and take out 1 sacrificial pact and put in a Darkscale Healer 

Demonfire & Felsoul Inquisitor

These cards are the backbone of the deck, there aren't\any substitutes for these cards that are basic or common.

Witchwood Imp

the only card similar to it is Blood Imp which is a good sub. But if you dont have either of these cards, but still have Fiendish Circle then you should be reasonably fine to swap this minion for something like Voodoo Doctor   or Kobold Geomancer or a second Corruption to help with early game removal.

Sense Demons

well gosh, ermmm, you ask alot of me, it hurts to take this card out. your best bet is just chuckin in a Sen'jin Shieldmasta


Gameplay Footage/Guide



Card Upgrades

I will not be putting legendaries in this list. Also the cards you swap don't have to be these exact cards, if you want to feel free to swap out other cards, this is just a rough guide, of my opinion of what is best to substitute

at the moment the deck itself isn't the strongest or most controlly deck, but through upgrading your cards over time, it will become a powerful control deck

Replace Furious Ettin and Boulderfist Ogre with Voidlord

Voidlord is a very powerful late game minion, it can single handedly win games. But is a epic which will cost you 400 dust, which is quite expensive, but dream big :P

Replace one, ONLY ONE Acidic Swamp Ooze and Witchwood Imp with, Siphon Soul

Siphon Soul is a very powerful warlock removal and can help in matchups against decks with powerful minions, such as spiteful decks and other control decks.

replace 1 Mortal Coil or 1 Corruption with Twisting Nether

Twisting Nether is very powerful, it can turn games around, save you in very dire times. Destroys everything, no frills attached, GONE! You only need 1 but if u wanna be greedy you can run two.

Replace any of the above cards that are getting replaced, with Defile

if you already have replaced all of the above, time to sub out 1 Sacrificial Pact and Fiendish Circle .  Defile completely destroys aggresive decks and can cause instant concedes :P

Replace any of the above cards that are getting replaced, with Despicable Dreadlord

This card is just so amazing. Card is practically instant win against baku paladin. If you have replaced all of the above cards, replace Darkscale Healer and Swift Messenger

Lesser Amethyst Spellstone

This card is great, deals a bunch of damage, heals you a bunch, swap it out for any of the above or the second Voidlord and the second Mortal Coil


If you unpack any of the cards below, they are worth putting in, but i wouldn't go out of my way to get them, most of these cards will assist with the late game.

Mountain Giant great synergy with our full hand

Gilnean Royal Guard just good late game removal

Charged Devilsaur just good late game removal

Rotten Applebaum (i don't know why this wasn't in the original list) very good card, i would go out of my way for this one

Stonehill Defender good early game taunt, good vale, can get Voidlord from it

Tar Lurker Just slows down the game a bit for you


P:S please do eventually sub out the Demonfire and Felsoul Inquisitor as once the deck gets some more of these big cards these cards aren't nearly as good

 Here is a link to the control warlock i play, this shows a fully finished warlock (you can sub out Bloodreaver Gul'dan for Lord Jaraxxus )                       https://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1117125-control-rin-lock

Enjoy :D
