It is official – Patron Warrior is being retired! On Saturday, needing just two wins, I hit my goal of 500 wins. Thank goodness. I was burned out on this deck.
With hitting the golden warrior level, I decided I needed to try and push another hero to 500 wins. I think this time I am going to do Paladin. Mostly, I will do this with Secret Paladin unless something better comes along.
So, for tracking sake, I am at 42 wins. That’s a long way to go to 500 but I am optimistic.
I want to try and avoid burnout so I think I will build another deck to break up the monotony. And, going against everything I have said, I think I am going to build a Warlock deck. No, not a RenoLock deck, that would be heresy. #banReno
I think the Warlock deck I want to build is the one being used by Pro Player, Tars, of France.
Tars’ deck is a ZooLock deck. It reminds me of the Zoo-type decks in Magic: The Gathering, which I enjoy.
Here is the decklist
ZooLock by Tars
Power Overwhelming x2
Flame Imp x 2
Voidwalker x 2
Curse of Rafaam x 1
Dark Peddler x 2
Imp Gang Boss x 2
Void Terror x 1
Imp-losion x 2
Doomguard x 2
Abusive sergeant x 2
Dire Wolf Alpha x 1
Haunted Creeper x 2
Ironbeak Owl x 1
Knife Juggler x 2
Nerubian Egg x 2
Brann Bronzebeard x 1
Loatheb x 1
For the most part, this deck is just packed full of quality creatures with quality spells mixed in. Having faced this deck archetype a few times, I know the potential. It should be fun!
I noticed that Knife Juggler and Leper Gnome are being reviewed for possible nerfing. I am not at all surprised by Knife Juggler. That’s a card that can absolutely take over a game. I am surprised, however, by Leper Gnome. I think the card is good, but don’t think it is too powerful. What do you think?
