With Warlock's regular hero power, you will draw your combo throughout the game, so there's no need to start with any of it in your opening hand.

This is a fun combo deck that buffs Bloodreaver Gul'dan‘s hero power (3 damage lifesteal) with Clockwork Automaton

The deck’s shell is really similar to Cubelock, so before you say “Why don’t you just give up on these stupid combos and play that instead?”, know that you should play Cubelock competitively, and you should play this deck for fun

The idea is to control the game with cards like Defile, Hellfire, and Lesser Amethyst Spellstone to set up for the combo. 

—-The Combo—-

On turn 10, play Bloodreaver Gul'dan. This will summon all of your Voidlord‘s, Voidwalker‘s, and Despicable Dreadlord‘s, giving you some solid defense.

The following turn, play Clockwork Automaton and eat it with Carnivorous Cube.

Finally, kill the cube with a Dark Pact, Shadowflame, or with combat damage, copy a Clockwork Automaton with Faceless Manipulator, and go face for a minimum of 24 damage (and 48 healing!), depending on how many other Clockwork Automaton‘s and other minions you have out to attack with. 

—-The Weaknesses—-

Of course, silence can really hurt this game plan. A silenced Cube or Automaton can mess things up big time. It hasn’t happened to me yet, but I rue the day. 

Rin, the First Disciple is an alternate win-con, but unfortunately the Skull of the Man'ari kind of works against her by summoning Azari and losing the battlecry. 

So far, I’ve had some success without the full combo, by doing things like dealing 6 and healing 12 over a few turns with just one Automaton.


Like I said earlier, this deck likely won’t beat Cubelock or Baku Hunter (Although I have beaten both even and odd Paladin), but it generally works and is a lot of fun to do an unnecessary amount of face damage for the win. 

There were some cards I was considering adding (like Spellbreaker) and some I was considering taking out (like Shadowflame). So let me know what you think, and if you got the combo to work yourself!
