what order do I get legendaries for control?

I have Ragnaros and Cairne at the moment and 1.6k dust sitting. In what order should I get the rest of the legendaries?

Alex is by far the most important. Because you'll rarely be dealing early damage to your opponent, she single-handedly halves the amount of damage your finishers need to deal.

I still say Grom is the linchpin of control. With him and an Inner Rage/Cruel Taskmaster, you really only need to deal 18 damage and survive till turn 8/10. And turtling/survivng is what control warrior excels at.

Dealing 18 damage isn't, hence the Alex.

That won't matter, since after summoning Alex you will still need to deal almost the same amount of damage. And there's no guarantee your opponent won't just heal right away. But Grom can also be used in midrange decks, hence I prefer him. The OP only has Rag and Cairne so far, it's not like his deck will be a pure control any time soon. Easy enough to fill it with good sturdy creatures and midrange threats that will take care of the opponent's health until Grom comes into play.

As you can notice from our discussion with Studoku, Grom and Alex are pretty much equally important ;) They form your main combo, the one that you wait to come into your hand so that you can finish off the opponent. The rest of the legendaries are only included to support this pair.

If you have enough for 2 Grom and Alex. Most lists don't run Ysera anymore.

If you only want to make 1 Grom. There is no card more important to Warrior Control than Grom.
