Zananananan here, I'm a german Hearthstone player and I'm currently playing for http://www.sfd-gaming.com/. I just wanted to share my Discardlock with you. I played Patron Warrior on the first day to hit rank 4. On the 2nd day the last Karazhan wing came out. I built this deck and hit Legend with it.

This deck is usually favored against other Aggro decks, you want to trade as much as possible. Go face against Midrange or Control decks. The key is to realize when you have to go all in and when you can afford to play around AOE.
Let's talk about the placement first. Most of the time it doesn't matter, but it can still win or lose you some games. You always want to maximize the efficiency of Dire Wolf Alpha.
- In general you want big minions, minions with deathrattle or taunt on the side and small minions in the middle.
- Knife Juggler has to be on the side (Taunt or deathrattle doesn't matter). You don't want to trade with him.
- Imp Gang Boss on the left. The Imp's will spawn in the middle.
I'll talk about the cards you always want to keep first. No matter what you are playing against. After that I'll take a look at specific matchups.
If you have Silverware Golem and Soulfire or Darkshire Librarian you can consider keeping both. You have a 33% Chance to discard the Silverware Golem on turn 2. If you don't have the coin and you don't have a 1 drop throw everything away. It's okay to play Abusive Sergeant on turn 1 if you don't have something else. I usually don't like keeping Dark Peddler, only keep it if you already have a good hand. Keep Dire Wolf Alpha if you have the coin and 2 1 drops.
favored - Darkshire Councilman is fine if you have a 1 drop.
favored - Keep Imp Gang Boss if you a 1 drop. I don't like playing Voidwalker on turn 1 if they have the coin. You still have to play it if you don't have something else. They can coin out Huge Toad. Keep Dire Wolf Alpha if you have Possessed Villager. Keep Houndmaster and Unleash the Hounds in mind.
heavily unfavored - Darkshire Councilman if you have a 1 drop. You have to go all in on him having no AOE.
favored - Keep Imp Gang Boss with a 1 drop.
even - Imp Gang Boss is insane in this matchup. Keep Dire Wolf Alpha if you have Possessed Villager, you can kill Flame Imp or Dark Peddler. You always want to clear his board, he can't use Abusive Sergeant, Power Overwhelming or Defender of Argus this way.
unfavored - Keep Darkshire Councilman if you have a 1 drop. I like Possessed Villager on turn 1 and coin Darkshire Councilman or Imp Gang Boss turn 2. It plays around Fiery War Axe. Be aware of Brawl, Revenge and Ravaging Ghoul.
Why aren't you running other discard cards like Succubus or Tiny Knight of Evil?
I wanted to make the deck as consistent as possible.
I don't think you need it. Soulfire is good enough.
You are awesome. Thank you for your support!
