    Cheap removal and survivalbility for dragon decks. Simply great, if Dragonlock ever becomes a thing.

    Drain Soul that deals +2 damage if you're holding a Dragon. Somehow feels weaker compared to the other classes' Dragon Spells, but that might be the powercreep talking. Card is fine and will most likely see play if Dragon Warlock is to become a thing (which I doubt tbh).

    For warlock, anything that does damage AND replenishes your health is always useful

    It seems a bit better than Drain Soul since it can hit face, but as said before, dragonlock is a weird concept yet. But maybe it becomes a thing, somehow, in standard.

    Can also target heroes, with the 2 cards shown so far today for warlock a dragon warlock deck has 14 face damage in their deck, you can burst an opponent from 11 with the dragon and 2 of this from hand.

    With the added cards a warlock deck (using viable cards) has 26 face damage from hand represented in the deck) (2 of each dragon card of today's reveal, 2 hellfire 2 life drinkers)

    Dragon Warlock was never really popular, but back in Blackrock Mountain I had a fun Malygos Warlock (with Soulfire and Darkbomb after Thaurissan), maybe something like that will be viable :p

    This is a good comparison to Darkbomb. Without a dragon in hand it is weaker, but when you have one in hand, then it is more  powerful. Definitely a strong card. Just depends on how much dragon warlock is a thing. But I guess it will be, because atm we have 4 dragons for warlock:

     

    - the new AoE dragon.

    - Twilight Drake

    - maybe Amalgam

    and you have a solid Midrange deck.

    Like most of the cards to be reveiled, things will heavily depend on the support of dragons for each class.

    If, if, if. If dragon warlock works, you will have enough activators and you will play this a lot. If not, this will never see play.

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    Depending on if dragons will be a good tribe for warlock this is very good.

    Similar to Amethyst Spellstone,  but that card has more synergies in Warlock than playing Dragons.

    But that Archetype definitely looks interesting! Like someone metioned before, this and the new Dragon deal a lot of Face-Damage.

    So maybe some kind of aggressive Midrange-Deck? 

    Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?

    This is a really good card even if it seems like Drain Soul  ,the  extra 2 damage /healing is not something to laugh at for a 2 mana card . This would be better compared with the warlock spellstone from last expansion with the small downside that it can't get to 6 damage but with the big upsite that it costs 2 less and that it can go face.

    4 stars

    This is insanely good. It's basically Spellstone in Darkbomb format. This is the strongest 2-mana removal ever printed.

    This essentially fills the void that Spirit Bomb couldn't. Now we have an efficient way to deal with snowballing early drops.

    Not to mention, this can go face and benefits from Spelldamage, meaning there are possible Malygos shenanigans (not even OTK, just as some sort of finisher).

    Don't forget that Warlock has yet to get its class legendary dragon, which could be a massive wincondition.

     

     

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Straightforward card. Expect to see this as a staple card in every control handlock with twilight drakes.

    Excellent card! Minion removal or face damage with lifesteal if you're playing a dragon deck!

    All of the "breath" cards are designed to be below the power curve without dragons, and above with, but the base effect here seems unusually weak compared to the other "breath" cards revealed so far. This card probably needs a very dedicated Dragon Warlock deck to be good (as opposed to a deck with a few dragons/synergies), but it would be very good in such a deck. We'll just have to see what other Neutral and Warlock dragons come out in this set.

    Looks like control lock is back, Blizz said warlock weakness is healing, but look, OP heal only for 2 mana, khm. Glad to see control lock, coz i hate zoo and love warlock.

    Strong card when you are holding a dragon, no doubt. Dealing 4 damage for 2 mana is already good, lifesteal brings the card on another level. 

    With this card and the AoE dragon revealed it seems that dragonlock is already in a good spot versus aggro decks. 

    Both cards require to have a dragon in your hand so you have to run a good number of them (I'd say 8, can go 7 but it starts to be a bit too much unreliable), depending on how many good dragons will be print this can be the biggest problem of dragonlock, because maybe the deck won't apply enough pressure to bring down midrange, control and combo decks.

    You could also use any other dragon from classic.. You are not restricted to dragons that are traditionally good in warlock..

    You also can afford to run less than 6 dragons (the number of dragons in msg priest and wotog warrior) cause you are warlock and have easy access to card draw.

    Also decks running this card or the other don't need to even be a dedicated dragon deck but be a "dragon package" that's how most successful deck operate they have core cards and then add packages.
