Deck Overview

This is my early theorycraft of what a Dragon Handlock deck would look like. We can start playing big threats as early as turn turn 4 thanks to Mountain Giant, and thanks to Abyssal Summoner and Dragon Breeder we should be able to keep up the pressure through the mid and late game. Crazed Netherwing and Crowd Roaster allow us to keep control of the board while removing our opponent's minions, with the end goal being a nice Alexstrasza finisher.


Potential Additions

Archivist Elysiana - If we're drawing all these cards, we might go into fatigue against slower decks. Elysiana is a great counter to that, but due to our lack of healing we might die the turn we play her. 

Chef Nomi - Instead of worrying about outvaluing other control decks in the late game, why not just kill them? Nomi seems like he would be a great addition to any control deck, but it's been proven time and time again that he's just a little too slow to be truly viable. Still, Nomi has never existed in a time where Handlock was viable, so maybe Lifetap was the answer all along? I doubt it, but it might be worth testing.

Shadow Bolt - We might need to take out one of our late game threats in favor of early game removal if aggro becomes a mainstay in the upcoming meta. If so, Shadow Bolt is probably the best option available in Standard (which isn't saying much).


Changelog

December 1st: - Shadow Bolt,  + Frizz Kindleroost. The newest legendary looks insane, and because we're warlock we're going to be drawing those dragons faster than other decks anyway. 


Obviously there are still a lot of cards that could go into this deck, so if you have any ideas feel free to comment!

    You should consider Dragonqueen Alexstrasza as an option for this deck.

    There are not bad dragons in Warlock's discovery range.

    Take out Brightwing and maybe replace her with Dragonqueen Alex (or just a Mortal Coil, either way she's pointless, even as a dragon)

      I agree just replace it with anything really.
