The Witchwood Guide
This deck is really good.And this is quite amusing to see that HS is still unable to curve down its aggro decks.
I don't post often on this site, but I just have to say this deck is disgusting. I just killed a priest on turn four with coin and he had played at least three minions.It's absolutely key that you ditch the Abusive Sergeants and replace with Heroic Strike. You need the extra hero attack power to blast through taunts which will put your minions in danger. Trading minions into taunts can lose you the game, that's what all these weapons are for.I'm normally a control player, so if you normally play control too and you're not having luck with the deck, stop trading your minions by default and just go face. It's going to be painful as hell at first and your body will scream at you to stop, but if you use your head and make strategic trades instead of every trade you will unlock the spirit of the deck. Trade to keep your key minions alive next turn. Trade if you think your opponent is going to take the board from you via AOE so you can cash in (turn 7 Flamestrike, turn 5 Holy Nova, turn 4 Swipe, etc). Your opponent will use their coin if they have one to wipe your board, so make sure you're paying attention.Currently 6-0 from rank 14 => 10. The highest rank I ever got was 9 and that was during secret paladin's debut.
Thanks for this post. I was struggeling as well, stuck at rank 15 where I crafted the deck, basically playing the deck the wrong way. Followed your instructions and breezed to rank 10.
What's your new list then? Just swapping Abusive Sergeants with Heroic Strikes?
@Baronenn Glad to hear it's working out for you! If I did nothing else but play Hearthstone yesterday at least I helped one person out a bit! Haha! Good luck out there and have fun.@TheChap I swapped the two Abusive Sergeants with one Heroic Strike and one Mortal Strike. I can't take credit for that change. Another commenter on here "eliagug" made the comment and I think the suggestion is working out quite well.
What about Heroic Strike in this deck? Pushing for 4 more damage (or getting through a pesky taunt) could be reasonable for only 2 mana.
Answer just above you, replace Abusive Sergeant x2 with 2 Heroic Strike
grinded to rank 667 legend from 3-4k, fun/chill deck and fast. added another arcanite reaper and cut a ghoul, so far im always controlling board early to mid game.
Maybe Skycap'n Kragg ?
I was looking for a deck to make use of my golden Blood To Ichor :p
Could I run Gorehowl?
Gorehowl is too slow and defense/control-oriented to be a good fit. If it's turn 7 and you really need that much help retaking the board, you've lost already.
Similar to aggro dragon warrior, not sure if I like blood to ichor, and reach can be a problem, but overall I'm a big fan.
Not gonna lie, I was very skeptical about this deck. Tried it, played a couple games and I have to say I was wrong.
This is an incredible aggro deck and I am glad it exists cause it totally refreshes warrior for me.
I made a short video showcasing the deck and its strengths.
thanks trump :D
Fantastic deck, but having trouble with Tempo Mage, any suggestions?
Make sure your starting hand has N'Zoth's First Mate or Fiery War Axe
Doing really well against the current "C'thun" meta since most are pretty slow. I did lose a few matches to C'thun druids though because of their many taunts. I was skeptical about Sir Finley but he is absolutely the perfect edition do this deck especially if Warlock draw power is available. Solves the draw problem.
