    Small Update:

    The full adventure is out for about a week now and HSReplay statistics for this Handlock suggest a 52% winrate. Though the Shellfighter version remains strong at ~55%.

    Therefore Boompistol and Poacher seem to be too situational and don’t do enough for our deck, therefore I’d recommend to go back to the Shellfighter version, which still seems to be the strongest (pure) Handlock deck. By ‘pure’ I mean without Galakrond, Lackeys or any other shenanigans.

    Hey all,

    this list is not much different than the Shellfighter version I hit legend with last month, but I felt Shellfighter wasn’t good enough anymore, especially against Embiggen Druid and Dragon Hunter. Therefore Dragonmaw Poacher is the stronger tech in the current meta and Boompistol is a nice addition for the Rogue matchup giving me a quite easy climb to Legend (streaked 24-4 last couple days). You can find a guide for the deck linked in “source” above the decklist.

    However Warlock is quite unpopular currently due to the many Hunters out there (occasionally you see some Galakrond Warlocks) and that matchup indeed can be tough. So performing well with this list requires a lot of experience and patience. If you have questions about gameplay or matchups feel free to ask or check out the guide.

    Personally I stick to the Handlock archetype with very similar lists for 2 month now, because I really love it’s playstyle and therefore I keep trying to improve the list with the new adventure cards and adjusting it to the meta. So if Rogue, Hunter, Druid (classes that arguably have a better reputation and are way more popular) somehow aren’t doing the trick for you on ladder, maybe give that Handlock a try.

    Cheers Butterkase
