The New Standard: Midrange Demonlock
Last week we tackled control. Before that, we took a hard look at aggro. Now on The New Standard I wanted to break into midrange (kinda). This week we are going to dive into a deck idea that I have been mulling about for quite some time. Back when Karazhan was first announced I was really intrigued by Malchezaar's Imp. Not because of the effect (though it is quite strong) but because it was another 1/3 demon for one mana. Having four 1/3 one drops really added some extra power to Demonfire and gave you a curve that could really take over early boards. That led me to experiment with many different demon-based builds. However, no matter what I did, the list just didn’t quite have the strength that I wanted it to have. Not only that, but most of the time I just found myself saying, “this is just Zoo.” This week’s list is my attempt to finally get over that hump and play a slightly different deck that has much more all-around punch than Gul’dan is used to.
