Deck 1: Paladin
The Paladin deck, as many would have noticed by now, is similar to the Handlock, where there is a heavy focus on staple cards like Twilight Drake and the Giants to overwhelm opponents in the Mid-Late game.
“I chose it over the Warlock because I find it easier to recover from heavy damage in the late game with cards like Guardian of Kings and Lay on Hands, making it generally more consistent against a wider spectrum of cards.”
This deck was also played by renowned player Koyuki, who wrecked Savjz 3-0 with it in the latest season of ESGN Fight Night!
Deck 2: Druid
The Druid deck, with its strong cards like Ancient of Lore, Druid of the Claw, and Keeper of the Grove, makes it easier to amass board control.
“I went with the typical Control Druid over the Watcher or Token Druid due to its late game prowess and my general familiarity with it.”
A consistent deck, we believe that almost every player has considered running it for tournaments at some point in time.
Deck 3: Warlock
A Warlock Rush deck, it breaks away from the conventional Murlock that we are seeing a lot of nowadays.
“I picked it for its variation, and also as a contrast to the other control heavy decks.”
Cards like Knife Juggler and Leper Gnome pose substantial amounts of threat Early Game that opponents have no choice but to make unfavourable plays. Hellfire allows for the removal of cheap Taunts like Feral Spirit, and also deal a potential game-changing three damage.
Leeroy with Power Overwhelming and Soulfire add the icing onto the cake.
