Soulfire to strong?
I don't know how often you've played Warlock yourself, but I've had Soulfire backfire plenty. There are ways to mitigate it all of course, but unless you're using it as a finisher (and even then it can mess you up in some cases) it almost always forces a 2 for 1 exchange, or forces you to risk over-extending your hand. If you're only using it as a finisher, it's a dead card at all times before that.
Soulfire is a very good card, don't get me wrong. It has a good amount of flexibility and power, but you're underselling it's costs a little.
1. Put together a deck of mostly bad cards with a few really good ones and both Soulfires.
2. Draw cards until you get at least one really good card and a Soulfire, with a bunch of bad ones.
3. Observe how often it throws away your good card but leaves the Wisps.
I'd actually be really happy if it couldn't be used without a card in your hand, but they allowed you to pick which one to throw away. The number of games I've had an enemy between 5 and 9 health with a Soulfire and a Doomguard+ some other cards in hand and the Soulfire throws away the Doomguard is too damn high.

Why not use Doomguard first then? At 0 mana Soulfire can be cast whenever you like. If it isn't the killing blow, I see no point in casting it already.
Sometimes it might be better to just play safer and throw out that DG rather than go for a win that run, but that isn't always an option.
EDIT: Even if you're not running DG, this can happen (and often) with your second SF.
