Hey Everyone, I've been playing Hearthstone for years but this is the first time I'm posting a deck here on hrthpwn.
I'm a Warlock main player and was bummed after warlock decks got nerfed multiple times since it was tier 1 at the start on ashes meta. After countless experiments I have finally fine tuned a deck that got me to Legend faster than any deck I have ever used before.
Combining Lackeys with Galakrond is just so much FUN!
Plays generally like other zoo-gala locks except the fact that lackeys especially with tekahn and erkh give you multiple win conditions against more control-ly decks out there.
Against Control (Gala rogue, Spell druid, Gala priest, highlander mage) : Haven't lost to a control deck yet. Hard mulligan for scrap-imp and play him asap with coin or on turn 2 if youre going first. Tap on turn 2/3 . Save Erkh and at least one lackey or lackey generator till you get Tekahn on the board. Erkh and six 4/4 Lackeys that generate you big dragons and spells that give you more win conditions against control decks. Kronx gives you another win condition. The best part of this deck is that your biggest card is Galakrond at 7 mana! This makes your deck very consistent and you wont be stuck with a hand full of unplayable heavy cards at the mulligan while still generating more value than most control decks!
Againt Tempo Demon hunter : SLIGHTLY unfavoured match-up for us but not by much. If they draw perfectly from mulligan they can be a bit hard to beat. But we still have come back mechanics with plague of flames and magic carpet. Do not hard mulligan for scramp-imp this time, it's too slow. Instead mulligan for 1 drops and play tempo zoo style. If you end up with scramp imp in your hand after mulligan anyway just play him on 2 after your 1 drop and do not tap on turn 3 for value, just play tempo. I have found this strategy much better againt tempo DH.
Please be free to ask me any questions in the comments, will try my best to help everyone and best of luck on your legend climb!
Ive been playing HS pretty much since like few months after it came out and I am not gonna lie, this is the best deck I have ever played (im Lock main btw). Its kind of easy to play once you find out how to play it, you have a lot of stuff to control the board and even if you get cleared multiple times you still have win conditions, if played correctly (basically classic pressure with buffed minions from Scrap Imp, then fully buffed Galakrond with 4 demons + weapon, tekanh + next turn Grand Lackey with full board of lackeys, then after you are Galakrond you can buff a lot eith Kronx (if you have at least like 3 minions on the board) and in the end you can do huge pressure with big dragons discovered with Draconic Lackeys). Its fun, not that hard to play and EXTREMLY versatile. Really its a pleasure to play Lock with this deck.
I've been having a lot of trouble with this deck and some tips would be greatly appreciated. It's fun to play but I find it to be way too slow. By the time I get things set up with Dark Pharaoh Tekahn and everything it's just too late and I lose. Even going the Galakrond, the Wretched route ends up being too slow. Seems like unless I get an amazing first draw everything just goes to hell.
Lacks a bit of control but it's ok
Love the deck. It has everything one needs in a good deck. By far my favourite zoo deck.
any plan for the imp nerf? :P~~~
Still buildable after patch? I have a tournament tomorrow should I build?
I love the concept.
The decks we beat with this deck I think we still beat....and the decks that usually beat us got nerfed. I still think it will be a good deck but only once the patch hits will we know for sure.
Very nice deck it works very good for me 8:2 so far :)
winrate - 0 :D
what about a better strategy description?
maybe after the newly announced nerfs/buffs...let's see how the meta settles then I will make changes.
wr 20% so far
however, it's funny)
I climbed really well this is good deck for me.
My Decktracker screenshot shows a good climb and then a slow stepback.
I only loose because of bad draw. If u draw correctly than u win, as u can see rogue and DH is a possible matchup, or can be a bad too.
But it works really good.
Now with the new nerfs announced DH will be a easier match-up hopefully.
First ... Awesome deck, thanks ! :]
I did not had time to play much this month so i was sitting on top of silver. My old deck was busted with very poor win-ratio so i was looking for something new i would like to play. Pure face decks and plain zoo are too boring to me. But man this one ... this one is just perfect! I had ton of fun in past three days. It has so much variations and surprises. Really fun to play!
Stats bellow. You can add additional 6/2 which i did on another device, Out of these 13 loses two of them i did a really stupid misplay which cost me the game (don't play tired at 2AM guys huh...). Two more i lost due to me having an ultimate bad draw (2x worshipper + gala in open hand is just plain bad luck) while opponent was on curve. The rest were just fair games ... mostly face hunters and aggro Demon hunters. Hunters are kill or be killed and it very depends on draw (if the get both secrets from it is w/o chance). DHs ... well it is hard but with a bit of luck they're beatable.
Frankly the most satisfying thing on this deck is that it can (finally) eat priests for breakfast. It has so much power in late game (if you're patient) that you can fill the board by mid-size to huge minions like four times in a row. It is so easy to force them to play Plague of Death and refill the board again and again.
yup, This deck gives you a ton of late game threats if you are smart and patient, glad you enjoyed the deck.
Ended up with 64/30 and Diamond 7 mostly being wasted by Face/DT hunters and aggro DHs. Even after almost 100 games i am still having fun! Lets see how the deck will stand post-nerfs...
Thank you I was looking for a lackey warlock like this :)
Pretty bad against zoo decks if you don't draw Plague of Flames on time
may be difficult to not have +HP , but I like the Carpets and Lackeys :P~~~
somehow carpets become staple for warlock ....
