This was stupid advice against Warriors and it's even stupider advice against Warlocks. Even if you can manage to get a few minions on the field against all the control, come turn 8 he'll Hellfire and Life Tap to drop his health to 10, then play 2 giants and the Sunfury Protector.
Not saying it's OP, but don't try to say that just not dealing damage to him is a viable counter. That's just silly for Warlocks.
Something I ran into the other day though that may be effective is not so much stacking a pile of big removal but putting in a BGH or two and some Youthful Brewmasters. Warrior ate 4 big minions of mine with Tinkmaster Overspark and this method, I got a freaking squirrel every time. I kept dropping them since I figured eventually one would turn into a 5/5, which isn't too bad from an 8/8, but nope, all squirrels.
The Youthful Brewmasters are useful in other situations too, so you're not just putting them in to deal with Warlocks. I had someone ragequit once when I played Argus on turn 5, then on turn 6 used the Brewmaster and played him again.
