Greeetings, my name is Bond, GamesBond. A seasoned (and exclusive!) Handlock player of recently acquired legendary status! I love and play Handlock for its sheer power and deep tactics.
1. The Goal:
This is a variation on Handlock that will attempt to counter the agressive format which is likely the new "Mech-Meta" when Goblins vs Gnomes is released, while also being even more effective against Midrange and Control decks. When the hype-dust settles, we look to our old favourites and make them better.
2. The Concept (Oh sweet tweaks!):
- The concept is to get more healing, something the Warlock class has always struggled with. How do we accomplish this? Antique Healbot heals for 8, almost triple that of Earthen Ring Farseer. No longer will we narrowly perish to that last Kill Command or Soulfire!
- "However, Earthen Ring Farseer also heals my minions!" True, and this is where Recombobulator comes in. It will turn damaged Molten Giants into fresh ones and damaged Mountain Giants into either healthy ones, or Clockwork Giants.
- Thirdly, we've switched out Soulfire for Darkbomb. The new mana cost of Soulfire makes the random card discard extra painful for Handlock players (even though we enjoy the occasional pain and torment!)
- Four. A new addition has been made! We have replaced Ancient Watcher with Ogre Brute. A solid turn 3 play that can sometimes attack past taunts. He does not require activation by silence, and makes for a great Shadowflame target at 4 attack! (Thanks to Xaiur, a most wise Warlock!)
Have fun, and INFERNO!!
