This is the Sjow Control Warrior Deck Jan 17. It’s similar to some of the other Control Warrior lists and this is where the META has settled on the best cards for this archetype.
The Dirty Rat + Brawl combo is pretty awesome, but don’t be surprised if it costs you the occasional game when you pull out something crazy.
Mean Streets of Gadgetzan has been released! This is the Sjow Dragon Priest Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Release deck he was playing on stream.
It should help you get a jump start on deck building ideas for Priest. Mana Geode, Drakonid Operative, Kabal Talonpriest, and Dragonfire Potion all make their way into the Dragon Priest archetype from the new set.
This is the Sjow Pirate Warrior Deck Nov 16 he was using to climb the ladder fast at the beginning of the season.
I have a love-hate relationship with Pirate Warrior decks. I love playing them, but I hate drawing bad or losing to a taunt on the other side of the board.
Some people do really well with these lists but it is really draw-dependant. It seems like one miss-step and you can’t win to me. I still fire out a load of games with Pirates every season for the fun factor though. Give it a go and see how you get on.
This is the decklist Sjow played to rank 1 legend on the NA server this week. It’s a slightly different discardlock to the Xixo build that hit rank one earlier in the month.
Just play as you would with a Zoolock list but take a little extra care to use the discard synergy. It’s a really easy deck to play and you will climb the ladder quickly in the current META.
There has been a rise in high legend Priest decks since the class received new cards from the Karazhan adventure. This is the Sjow Karazhan Concede Priest Deck as he called it, he was ranking up really fast and hitting win streaks on his way to legend.
It’s a fairly typical high-value resurrect Priest deck. He has added some big taunts and tech cards like Baron Geddon to deal with aggro, and Ragnaros. This type of Priest isn’t too hard to play, it’s a good one to start with if you’re new to Priest.
Sjow hit rank 1 legend with a Dragon Warrior deck using The Curator a week or so ago. With more cards released from One Night in Karazhan he was playing a new list on stream today and it looks even stronger than the old list.
Boom Wyrm is a must inclusion in dragon decks now. It removes any minions with 3 or less attack as a battlecry, and Netherspite Historian lets you choose a dragon through discover to fill out your curve or give you a threat specific to you opponent.
Dragon Warrior isn’t going anywhere for a while, it’s a good idea to learn how to play it. Give this list a go and see how you get on, if you can’t ladder up quickly with this deck drop me a message and I’ll help out!
I’ve been looking for a top legend performing Dragon Paladin list since all the new Dragon cards were released with the adventure One Night in Karazhan and found this Sjow High Legend Karazhan Dragon Paladin Deck he was playing on ladder at top 5 legend.
Book Wyrm is turning out to be a really good card. Removing minions with 3 or less attack as a battle cry is possible almost every game. Removing your opponents minions with a battlecry is one of the strongest tempo swings in Hearthstone so Book Wyrm’s have fast become a must include in Dragon builds.
Nightbane Templar is really good too as most discover minions are. You can pick a card to fill out your curve or counter your specific opponent.
This is the Sjow Discardlock Deck w Malchezaar’s Imp he was playing on stream after the new card Malchezaar’s Imp was released.
Discard Warlock decks are going to developed over the coming days with all the discard synergy cards now released. Warlock was already is a decent spot, so the added card draw and synergy from discarding is going to strengthen the class.
This is the Sjow Rank 1 Legend Karazhan Dragon Warrior w The Curator list he played on stream to peak at rank 1 on NA.
It’s very similar to the standard Dragon Warrior lists. The new card The Curator has been put in and more beasts added in Fierce Monkeys to be pulled out when The Curator is played.
Sjow replaced Onyxia for a second Drakonoid Crusher so you can do this if you don’t have Onyxia or you’re finding the META a little too fast.
Dragon Warrior has been criticized for being straightforward to play, and it is compared to some other decks. You will have most success when you can curve out into all your strongest minions with Dragon activators. It’s still fun though, and Sjow’s success shows how strong the deck is.
How to Mulligan for Dragon Warrior
This is a tempo deck, so starting out fast is key to winning. Ideally, you want that one copy of N’Zoth’s First Mate, but if you have a Fiery War Axe keep that. An activated Alexstraza’s Champion is also part of the dream start. Keep a strong 3 drop if you have a good 2 drop, and keeping a Twilight Guardian vs aggro decks like Aggro Shaman is fine if you have the coin.
This is the Sjow Malygos Barnes Miracle Rogue Deck he was using on ladder. It’s another burst deck that goes off when you get a Malygos or Gadgetzan Auctioneer from Barnes.
I played it for a few games and it’s crazy good. There aren’t many bad targets for Barnes, and the tempo you get from most minions that spawn is more than worth the downside from the minions you don’t want.
