The return of the Handlock!

Handlock has gained a lot of tools with United and Stormwind, hopefully returning it to its former glory. We basically have three cards that allow us to get a huge minion early: Two copies of Dark Alley Pact and one copy of Anetheron. We also have Flesh Giant, although it remains to be seen how quickly and reliably we can discount that one. While Sunfury Protector is no longer in standard, we instead have Stockades Guard to give taunt to our big boys and protect our fragile face. Besides all of this, we also have discount opportunities in The Dark Portal and Runed Mithril Rod. Add in the late-game win conditions of Lord Jaraxxus and Alexstrasza the Life-Binder, control and survival tools like Spice Bread Baker, Touch of the Nathrezim and Hysteria and we've got a real contender for a strong deck.

Felosophy is there to get some insane early Anetheron combos:

On coin: Turn 1 Felosophy(5 cards), turn 2 tap (7 cards), turn 3 tap (9 cards), turn 4 Anetheron tap Anetheron

On play: Turn 1 Felosophy (4 cards), turn 2 tap (6 cards), turn 3 Backfire (9 cards), turn 4 Anetheron tap Anetheron

 

In the mulligan, keep Anetheron and Dark Alley Pact. Keep draw, Runed Mithril Rod and Felosophy against slow decks, removal against fast decks.

    Sweet handlock dude! I made a more memeish version with Deck of Chaos, but also wanted to try a version like this one.

      Nice, I always like Deck of Chaos decks but sadly they just never work out because Warlock just lacks a way to tutor or cheat out the effect.
