Hi, I'm Erenecromancy, a warlock main since I-don't-remember-when, and this is the guide for another deck.

After the mini-set, warlock finally have access to decent board clear and protect itself in various ways. Demon pool is still so bad in Standard, so we need to build an all-rounder.

DISCLAIMER: This deck is a fruit of my grudge against Brann Warriors, but it's trying its best. It still performs decent against other decks tho.

DISCLAIMER: Renolock is still useless, but I love how Reno allows you to turn the tides, so here it is. I don't guarantee any win streaks, only try it if you have the cards!

Objective: Survive until you outrun opponent's resources (or burn them!)

Key Cards:

Dirty Rat: Save it after warrior's 7-mana turn (6 if they have coin), try to drop Deepminer Brann. If you miss it, pray for it to be Dr. Boom or Boomboss at least. And against mage, wait until you expect Sif. If the opponent is aggro, play it as soon as you can (if the board is safe)

Photographer Fizzle: Against Highlander, 100% use it with Sargeras, the Destroyer. Reno-bait with first one, and play the second one after. Don't go overgreedy and play both on the same board, we don't want two portals at once! If you see a duplicate, take a Symphony of Sins, 12 burn feels like Tickatus in standard!

Rin, Orchestrator of Doom: Yeah, I like Rin. That's why this is highlander and cards we lose are not that important. We lose Sargeras? Nevermind, just look at your opponent having fatigue now, you're ahead! If not in extreme danger, you would like to use it after you burn the opponent with your Symphony and/or used Sargeras. You can also combo it with Reverberations for double destruction.

Symphony of Sins: B U R N   D E C K S . The other ones are very useful tho, use the +6/+6 against a hunter and watch them struggle.

E.T.C., Band Manager We have another Dirty Rat because we hate Brann so much; we have Rustrot Viper because we hate Warriors so much and we have Encroaching Insanity because we can use it against deck-out warriors if we haven't needed the other options before.

Edit: It seems like warriors have calmed down a bit, so Rustrot out, Defile against paladins in.

Board Clears: Domino Effect is the best thing in mini set. We have a plenty of other board-clears too. Mulligan them according to your opponent. You don't usually need them in your opening hand against warriors. Even after the nerfs, they are 80% Brann, 20% Bomb.

Note: Zilliax is still bugged in Hearthpwn, so it's Twin and Perfect modules.

Meta is still hard if you're a warlock. Good luck and may Fel be with you!
