If there will be a combo Meta, this will mark the return of anti combo warlock
Hate it tbh. Messing with your opponent's deck should not be this easy (yes I do dislike Tickatus as well, thanks for asking).
Very easy card to use, and to destroy decks. I think it is quite powerful and helps with the warlock deck destroyer archetype.
At this point I have spent too much money on these games to quit.
Now pass me another pack, and lets see what I pull.
Oh god, I don't know. They are printing so much support for this "destroy your own deck" Warlock, but what if you burn Neeru Fireblade and he was your win condition?

Mostly meme for now, but might become stronger if combo decks dominate.
Wow, what a great and totally not obnoxious way to support selfburn Warlock. Can't wait to win games at random because I happened to burn my opponent's win condition while not even trying to.
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
5 stars just because thijs sold it so well
ok i thing discard your deck-lock will really be a thing
Really strong in a world where soul fragments are a thing, just negating 1 is good, negating 2-3 is incredible and always is a welcome addition to disrupt your opponent deck.

For combo decks this is just fire to they're decks .You can kill c'thun pieces also so they can have a bad time or even c'thun.Maybe the no deck warlock can be a thing not a very op deck but one that can be annoying .
Interesting card, might be included in several decks. In Wild, this can destroy Reno Priest after the opponent plays Loremaster PolkeltBADCARDNAME. Even without having seen Polkelt, this getting rid of 3 cards from your opponents deck is potentially game breaking to any combo deck.
and so Warlock continues down a path or blowin up everyones decks. hard enough to see my cards go with tickatus.
players: Tickatus is mean!
Devs: Hold my beer
Its either going to be played in miracle warlock along with Neeru Fireblade, or its going to be played simply to shit on the opponent. Either way, I'm not exactly sure why this card need to exist, since Tickatus is bad enough, but to make it a 1 mana card, like c'mon team5.
I can still defend tickatus since a setup is needed and he's a 6 mana dude that doesn't have taunt or rush. But this card is indefensible. Just play it whenever and wherever. Its not like controlock never floats mana anyway.
People are gonna cry about this. I don't think a burn-your-own-deck warlock plays this on 1. Wait until the imp guy is in hand, then BURN IT ALL DOWN! HAIL SATAN, or Sargenterass, whatever. BURNINATE!

Ohohoooooooo!!!! Will play this in every Warlock!
Quote From PezmanOh god, I don't know. They are printing so much support for this "destroy your own deck" Warlock, but what if you burn Neeru Fireblade and he was your win condition?
Warlock will shuffle a ton of Soul shards into deck so it will destroy them
Ugh, I hate it already.
Not sure how viable it'll be though. I don't get this "mill yourself" archetype they're pushing for Warlock, it just seems so damaging. What if you burn Neeru Fireblade, or your other win conditions?

Altar of Fire is a decent tech card against combo decks, but will only really see consistent play if this new "Deck Destruction Warlock" archetype is good. The support is there, the payoffs are there, but since you'll be putting yourself into fatigue rather quickly, the big question is "can you get out of fatigue to survive long enough to make the payoffs work?" The "Prime Gaming" package is still available, as is Educated Elekk, so maybe there's something there. Regardless, it looks like a fun archetype to play (although maybe not as fun to play against).
Seems like a meme card
