    Hey, guys

    Any recommendations which deck is good against warlock?  Trying to get Dimond 5, had a few attempts with Libram pal and Warrior - no luck so far. Last 2-3 stars are occupied by warlocks who draw and heal :( 

    Thanks!

    Assuming the warlock youre facing is handlock.

    Best decks: garrote rogue, poison rogue, quest dhunter, fatigue warlock, quest mage

    Paladin actually has a good time against most warlock builds simply because most of them can't handle divine shielded minions too well. Handbuff and secret pally is good, the former because of buffs (+3+3 no joke, if Moonfang got buffed its almost an easy win) and the latter because of disruption and aggro pressure.

    Ive tried libram pally and am quite impressed with it...when it draws well. The problem with libram pally is that it has all the tools to win, but you can absolutely be screwed by your hand (like not getting city taxes + libram of justice, not getting your libram of hope early, etc.) and from my experience you get screwed fairly often.

    We're in a polarized meta right now. There's no deck that can beat everything, and every deck has some kind of hard counter that you just cant escape the odd miserable matchup.

    Oh, and a small word of advice. If ranking up is your game, avoid warriors like the plague. Maybe the midset would be kinder to it, or team5 just wakes up and nerfs all the quests in some way shape or form.

    There are several reasons Secret Paladin is the top deck right now. Warlock is one of them.

    Brute DH is very good because you can Glide them. As mentioned before Secret Pally may work well. You'll wonder how often T1 "Oh my Yogg" kills the quest... Other then that are board based decks not good in the meta. They lose to mage to often.

    A viper that kills the weapon is handy, too.

    That's... a very weird way of spelling shadow priest.

    FINE ... "a" top deck, depending on which data you are looking at.

    I played to diamond 2 so far with Aggro-Druid.

    Felt "ok" against Warlock. Not great, but not terrible either.

    I see you!
