Despite the spot Warrior is currently in, I've managed to come up with a strong tempo deck!

So far, I've managed to achieve Rank 1 with the deck! Although, it took me several iterations before finding the ideal deck listtotaling about 60 games.

 About the deck:

You want to play on curve and build tempo with Rush minions and Woodcutter's Axe buff. Sometimes, you may even want to attack immediately after playing Woodcutter's Axe to activate it's deathrattle the following turn.

Cool trick:  Woodcutter's Axe's buff works on minions given Rush by Goblin Lackey from Improve Morale.

Darius Crowley is similar to Edwin VanCleef in that he can just outright snowball the game! Against aggro, this guy turns into a monster and is a huge pain to remove.

Zilliax can magnetize with Eternium Rover and Clockwork Goblin, as well as get buffed by Woodcutter's Axe. This is very strong, especially against aggro.

Play your bomb cards, Clockwork Goblin and Wrenchcalibur, to build up bombs for Blastmaster Boom. If you have Blastmaster in hand, it's usually worth to prioritize creating bombs for an **explosive** turn 7.

Your big finisher is the classic Grommash Hellscream. Activating his enrage can be done with Improve Morale, Slam or Warpath.

Edit: Replaced 1 Rabid Worgen with SN1P-SN4P as recommended by Kiwiinbacon and commenters.

Edit 2: Replaced 1 Improve Morale with Omega Assembly to refill hand and provide something more substantial than a Lackey. Also provides additional Mech synergy.


Matchups:

 

 

 

  • Mulligan for Eternium Rover, Town Crier, Woodcutter's Axe, Rabid Worgen, Improve Morale and Warpath. If you get a nice hand, you can also keep Zilliax.
  • Mech Hunter is a very common matchup and counters Warrior. However, you have a better chance to win as tempo warrior than other variants.
  • Build tempo early and make sure to remove their board, Goblin Bomb included.
  • Try to fit in as many hero powers as you can, although don't kill your tempo for it.
  • Keep an Execute for their AoE + Poison combo.
