Weekly Legends: Tempo Warrior
Alright, now we’re getting to some cool stuff. This week I’m looking at brand new take on Warrior (one of my favorite classes in the game). In the past Warrior has been restricted to three different styles: Aggro, Patron or Control. All of those are fine archetypes that can be a blast to play. However, with Whispers comes new decks and new styles, and these week we explore something a little different in Tempo Warrior. This list, rather than be purely midrange, purely aggro or purely control, is a blend of all three. As a result, it is two decks mashed into one, looking like half-Patron and half-control. The early game here is Acolyte of Pain and Battle Rage mixed in with Armorsmith and Fiery War Axe. However, as the game progresses your minion quality rapidly rises, giving you the chance to win or overpower other decks with some giant legendaries.
While I did not create this list, the following list is my take on Tempo Warrior. I mention this because there are a number of decks floating around that all do similar things. While only a few changes have been overall, I think there is a lot of flexibility with this, and that means you can freely tweak the deck how you want to. There are a lot of flex spots here, and many options to play. You typically want to alter the deck in a way that best fits the style you play as well as counters the decks you are most often seeing. For instance, if you aren’t seeing taunts (which is quite unlikely) you can switch out The Black Knight, or you might want more early game if you are seeing a ton of Zoo.
