Magic Decks #12 – Shoctologist Aggro Warlock

Shoctologist Legend LongIn this week’s ‘Magic Decks’, we will be looking at Shoctologist’s Aggro Warlock deck!

Shoctologist, a BlizzPro Hearthstone columnist, used this deck to climb to Legend rank, which also broke away from the conventional Murlock and Handlock we are seeing a lot in ranked mode nowadays.

This deck is about going strong in the early game, and the constant applying of pressure in the mid and late game, ensuring that you will always have board control.

Without further ado, lets look at the decklist:

Warlock (10):

  • Soulfire x2
  • Mortal Coil x2
  • Power Overwhelming x1
  • Flame Imp x2
  • Voidwalker x2
  • Doomguard x1

Neutral (20):

  • Abusive Sergeant x2
  • Leper Gnome x2
  • Young Priestess x2
  • Bloodmage Thalnos
  • Knife Juggler x2
  • Harvest Golem x2
  • Shattered Sun Cleric x2
  • Chillwind Yeti x1
  • Defender of Argus x2
  • Leeroy Jenkins
  • Argent Commander x2
  • The Black Knight

This deck can be played similarly to the Warlock Rush deck; mulligan for 1 drops, and keep up the board control and tempo by summoning minions and using your mana efficiently.

It is stronger than other rush decks in the sense that it has a stronger mid game as support minions like Shattered Sun Cleric and Defender of Argus ensure that your minions trade harder.

Finish off the game with a Argent Commander/Leeroy Jenkins + Power Overwhelming + Soulfire Combo!

Pros

  • Consistent damage output
  • Has the potential to finish off the opponent early as well
  • Can bring you to Legend rank 😛

Cons

  • Weak late game
  • Limited removal
