Hearthstone: Warlock – Sensing the Void

Ah.. it’s been awhile. Geek Generation here.

I left Hearthstone some time before the release of the expansion Gnomes v Goblins and came back to the game right at the end of Black Rock Mountain. I did have some gold saved up, so i was able to purchase and play all the wings of Black Rock Mountain. I bought 10 packs of GvG (with gold again), but unfortunately, the card pool meant that i wasn’t playing a mech deck any time soon.

I went through a couple of my old decks and used them to complete the daily quest. The one i liked most was still Voidrattler. It was a mid range that that had quick starts in Undertaker.

Now that the Undertaker was nerfed, i felt that is simply didn’t have a place in the deck anymore. The deck was after all, not a small aggro deck. I took out Undertaker. Since i didn’t need the Death Rattle activators anymore, i took out Haunted Creeper, Nerubian Egg and, of course, Mad Scientist.

In came Kobold Geomancers, which are still my favourite minions. The deck now looks like this:

2 x Mortal Coil
2 x Power Overwhelming
2 x Soulfire
2 x Sense Demons
2 x Hellfire

1 x Acidic Swamp Ooze
1 x Ironbeak Owl
2 x Kobold Geomancer
1 x Stonesplinter Trogg
2 x Harvest Golem
2 x Chillwind Yeti
2 x Defender of Argus
1 x Spellbreaker
2 x Voidcaller
2 x Doomguard
2 x Sludge Belcher
2 x Dread Infernal

I’m not sure what a previous iteration had before i changed it to Acidic Swamp Ooze and Stonesplinter Trogg. What’s with the single copy of Stonesplinter Trogg? Well.. it’s because i have only 1. I wanted a 2/3 body that didn’t go higher than 2 mana.

Before the addition of these 2 mana minions, the deck always had one problem: it usually didn’t make a bid for the board until turn 4. I’d never make a turn 2 Kobold Geomancer, unless i’m firing a Mortal Coil off the Coin. And sometimes, i’d rather cast Sense Demons even when i have a Harvest Golem in hand.

The 2 drops were my way of shoring up the weakness in the mana curve.

The deck’s concept remains the same. Sense Demons to bring in a Void Caller and a big ass demon. Void Caller’s Death Rattle plops the big ass demon on the board since they’re the only other demons around.

The thing is, without Undertaker and Nerubian Eggs, there’s nothing for the opponent to burn their Silence on before the Void Callers come in. I’d probably have to rethink abit on this problem with the deck.

Anyway, since Undertaker and the Deathrattle activators were taken out, i decided to rename the deck. It’s now called Sensing the Void. Not very iconic, i know : D

I’m pretty sure everyone names their own decks : D Geek Generation out.
