    Warlock didn't receive any interesting cards. At least not when compared to other cards from the powercreep fiesta that is DoD. Warlock will remain the worst class for the 4 months to come and might even be completely unplayable like it was in Ungoro.

    You're right that for a (too) long time Warlock was almost entirely defined by Life Tap which allowed Blizzard to not really worry about the class. Now they have to, and it's clear that they don't really know what to do with it (Paladin and Shamab have the same problem to a lesser extent). Blizzard seems to beliewed that "drawing cards" is a viable strategy and win condition on its own, but it isn't.

    Crazed Netherwing is really good in a vacuum (no pun intended) but Abyssal Enforcer wans't enough to save Warlock during Ungoro...

    Awesome review glad to see someone sharing their in depth reviews. Sadly warlock isn’t looking too good but who knows, maybe handlock ends up working out

    Thx for all your reviews so far. 

    They are fun to read and insightful. You put a lot of thought into them and I am looking forward to the other classes.

    The difference between Netherwing and Enforcer is huge though. If you drop this on 5 to clear a board you're suddenly the one dictating tempo.

    And I would hesitate to call Zzeraku "not interesting". That thing can lock down games by itself as long as its set up correctly.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.
