People continue to insist Tickatus is a problem, but it's sitting solidly in tier 4 according to both personal observation and Tempo Storm.
I understand it's sort of kind of a foil to Galakrond Priest and the slowest of Control Warrior, but not really. Rattlegore and its copies can go the distance if you don't manage to draw either your ETC combo or your OTK with Silas. Furthermore, I'm always in favor of one generally low-powered deck putting a halt on a meta full of fatigue matchups, so no complaints there.
Beyond that, the win rates tell the tale, and all versions of Control Warlock are being beaten by copious amounts of aggro and tempo (no, they aren't interchangeable terms, for the record).
Back to the OP, Y'shaarj is NOT used to its best potential in Warlock. It tends to have the most power in Clown Druid. Of course, this deck has some of the same issues, but at least it has an unbeatable high roll if the draws come in the right order. The same cannot be said for Lock against many matchups.

Enjoying Americans winning in the Olympics is forbidden because it is political. A 14 plus page discussion of state-sponsored lawsuits against a multi-national corporation based on harassment, discrimination, and wrongful death allegations is apparently not political enough to raise an issue.
