United in Stormwind Cards List & Guide
Top 20 legend
How its plays, against midHunter?
My winrate vs midHunter < 20%, but what if I'm doing something wrong.
also TempoMage win game at turn 4-6 :)
Doing good so far 12-2, replaced -1 Alexstrasza -1 Molten Giant -1 Doomsayer for +1 Siphon Soul +1 Ragnaros the Firelord +1 Power Overwhelming
Really fits the current meta.
10-1 on rank 5. Made one change.
Pretty strong Handlock deck -b
Made few changes and tried 10 games 8-2.
- Soulfire +Siphon Soul
- Molten Giant +Faceless Manipulator
If anyone wishes to play Handlock,try Wild it's way better there
Haha wild people actually play that?
Nice deck gonna play some more of it later :D ! I missed handlock yoh!
Maybe get your facts right first. Thijs went 21-9 with the deck to top 10 legend. Source
Yea but hold up fanboi we all know when plebs play this deck, they don't get that streamer magic luck that is required. Opponent guaranteed to have perfect answers from rank 3 to legend.
Swap molten and shamblers with imp gang boss and 2 senjin. Still works okay
Why would you swap shamblers? they are fundamental.... nowhere near as good as senjin in this deck (i agree with the imp gang) ... don't change it
I didn't have faceless shamblers.
If you watch Thijs stream on the first day when he hit legend you will realized that this is a joke deck he tryhard to play after get legend. He won first 2 games and then a lot of consecutive losses (top 20 when there are 20 legend players lol). Handlock is unplayable deck in this meta even in legend rank man.
Have you seen Kolento's handlock?
Unfortunately this deck gets flogged by anything that has a hint of agro in it. And unfortunately that is every deck you come against. Playing reactionary decks is always tough when you dont draw those reactionary cards. It can be very frustrating when this happens time and again game after game. Agro is all about not worrying about countering and simply forcing them to counter. So what happens when you dont have those cards to counter? The AoE (hellfire) is more detrimental than good. If you have to use a hellfire then you're most likely going to lose anyway. It doesn't kill councilmen, divine shields and 4+ hp minions but you sometimes literally have nothing else to play to try and clear board.
With no outright removal you get crushed by end game minions as well. Rag is a huge issue for this deck when you have been playing reactionary before hand and unable to set your own board up.
This deck just has too many weaknesses against what you find in ladder. I applaud those who stick to it, but if I played it anymore i'll end up in a mental asylum.
Nerfing molten giant was more of a boon to pally then anything 25 damage to face is the dream.....
In your video, you use Siphon Soul, but it's not included in the deck cards. Did you make alterations, and if so, for what?
Deck still works great against the warrior meta (basically you are facing between 25 and 35% warriors at the moment, depending on your rank), so you might want to try it out: VOD Ranked
Thx for video, I think I will try this deck :) I'm gonna even craft golden Alex for pure epicness :) I'd like to ask if you maybe consider replace one Refresh Vend. for Siphon Soul? In video you posted they were pretty dead cards imo (you were far ahead on board vs people). And one removal for 7/7 or other crap (tirion?) might be usefull.
works only on legend rank where there are no tryhards
