Weekly Legends: Dragon Warlock!
After the buzz from Blackrock died down, it didn’t take long for everyone to realize that dragons, in all of their infinite glory, weren’t all what people cracked them up to be. In fact, it is rare to encounter a dragon deck on the ladder at all these days, and most aren’t that good. However, while Paladin, Priest, and even Warrior, couldn’t sustain the beastly lizards, this decks legend list shows that some, who have a much more infernal power, can.
Warlock is not a class that seems like it would be a good fit for dragons, but time and time again, lifetap shows that it can support any type of deck. However, you should not be fooled. Despite its name, this is a control deck that plays almost exactly like Control Warrior does. You wear down your opponent with solid removal and card advantage, and then end the game with huge finishers. While Warrior wins on the back of Alexstrasza and Grommash Hellscream, this deck has Lord Jaraxxus and Nefarian. The goal of this is deck is to constantly stay alive, and, in doing so, just keep wearing your opponent down until they run out of things to play.
The crux of this deck is that it has two modes. With , there is always the option of the early “Handlock” package where you can just fill your hand to dig for your middle and late game threats. However, also know there are many games where you will not be tapping for the first few turns, but rather just trying to keep control of the early board. Many games will go to fatigue, and plenty will go down to the last card or two, but that is usually a good thing as, not only can this deck match all others punch for punch, but it is built to excel in those situations.
