Hi, have not played hearthstone in awhile and started to play again. Starting from rank 18 but every deck im facing is either odd pally or rogue or or warrior or token druid. So, im looking for a deck to counter this meta im facing now. Is controllock good? i have the cards and dust for it, i just want a deck to counter aggro ( i know odd warrior is good at this but i dont have enough dust for that deck). Or should i craft deathrattle hunter or midrange hunter? Or is malygos druid or togwaggle druid or its hybrid good? Love to know your thoughts and which decks i should have to climb this season to legend.
I hit legend last month with control lock. Even posted the deck. You are dead on as control lock counters these play styles hard, but I will give this advice.
Control lock will turn to crap the second you start seeing quest rogue, pogo rogue, kingsbane, and pretty much any hunter. For me, they’ve become far more popular preying on control decks, so I’ve already switched away to Odd Rogue.
It’s a cyclical meta, so if you make the investment, it’ll be good at some point, but I’m 50/50 on if doing it now will work in your favor
I can tell you that between 5 and legend you won’t see a single odd paladin but some people runs zoo.
If you want to craft necessary cards for control warlock are totally up to you, but depending on how many cards you’re missing I’d think twice.
i would also consider druid cards, since..... well.... it’s druid cards... almost every druid archetype runs the same package wich is straight up insane. The cards I’m looking at are the following: spreading plague, UI, branching paths, ferocious howl. Twig might also be an option along with floop. Rest are basics like wild growth and nourish, innervate etc. Finally you need your archetype... that’s a single card like malygos, or a 2-3 card combo like azalina and togwaggle, with a florist. You can add some taunts hadronox the 4 mana recruit and some cubes, and you’re looking at taunt druid. You can add some violet teachers and some whisps and you’re a token druid....
yeah i was thinking of having a few decks. Like if the meta has too many control decks, then i will play cube hunter. If the meta has too many aggro decks, then i will control decks like control lock. Its just that when the meta has both at the same time, then its get harder to decide which kind of deck. But thanks for your info and i may try your control lock!!
And yes i only need like 800 dust to craft control lock. But do i need rin? if so, then i need to craft her too. and yeah druid is nice but its just that i need to craft twig, azalina, malygos and hadronox in order to rotate the druid archetypes.
