Usually lose to warlock rogue and hunter rush decks and any other classes when I get a lvl 8 legendary at start and I replace it and usually get a lvl 6+ card, which cripples me at the start. Sometimes I am forced to use important removals early to survive rushes, when I am given a !@#$ty hand.

I do not have some of the other legendary cards that warrior control decks use.

Here is my deck:

Deck seems fine. I would take out Inner Rage and put in Cleave if you're having problems with aggro decks....actually i would do it personally even if you aren't. The only Legendary you're "missing" is Barron, which is also hurting you a lot in the aggro matches, and again cleave helps fill that void.

Final thing of note, welcome to the joy of playing warrior control. Sometimes you just get bent over on starting hands.


That is not the worst opening hand I've ever had, that should tell you something about what will happen on occasion. All you can do is try to maintain the board. You don't have to kill everything, Singleton minions with 3 or less attack can be ignored for a few turns while you dig for cards if it's not a heavy go face aggro deck.

2 whirlwinds
2 armorsmiths
2 executes
2 shield slams
2 sheild block
2 acolyte of pain
2 taskmaster
2 fiery war axes
2 frosting besker
1 brawl

2 faceless
1 big game hunter
1 carinebloof

Aco should only be used whe you can combo him with something, be it a Whirlwind, Inner Rage, Cruel Taskmaster, Wild Pyro or something else, on the same turn. Otherwise he will either be immediately one-shot by the opponent or silenced.

Hey A2G, with warrior control decks those "few legendaries" are what win u games. Without those you can't play control well enough to get higher ranked. Control is all about lasting to late game and using those legendaries. Without them, I suggest using a different strategy like aggro

Don't listen to them. You aren't missing much, Baron is the only card not in your list. Trust me, your deck is fine. Just play more with it and keep improving how you play. With your list you're honestly just not playing properly if you're stuck at rank 12, it's not the 1 missing legendary.

Drop the Ysera for sure. The swamp ooze is interesting but it doesn't seem like weapons are what you are having troubles with. Rogues can easily replace them and hunter weapons aren't really what win them the games. Don't get me wrong, its nice to get rid of those bows but thats usually not what the problem is. If you really want weapon removal id get Harrison. Inner rage can be useful but I think cleave would be of much more use vs aggro

Hey, Warrior Brothers!

I am no pro, stick around rank 11-10 but don't play much, think i can climb up some ranks in future.

I checked your decklist and got some tipps for you:

You have to get stronger in mid Game, so you can reach late game better.

Think about cards like:

Abomination (perfect against rush decks)
Senjin Shieldmasta (saved my balls every game)
Spell-Breaker (at least you should run 1x , 2x are better)
Cleave (same as Abo)
Pyro (maybe, I don't run him but other Control Warriors do)

and last save your dust for Baron Geddon like I do he is missing <3

I would take out faceless, i dropped him and never looked back at him.

i realised very late that BGH is the dead card in 90%, I dropped him as well.
But its up to you!
