Best Warlock Decks for Scholomance (September 2020) – Standard & Wild!

Warlock's hero power has always made it a dangerous class to play against! From the classic Zoolocks to Handlocks, Warlock has been one of the premiere classes in the game over the history of Hearthstone! We'll be taking a look at the best Warlock decks you'll be able to play with in the Scholomance Academy expansion. The class got some particularly interesting stuff to play with in the new expansion. That means there's hopefully going to be some new options to bring into the Standard or Wild ladder!

Warlock is probably one of the most recognizable classes throughout the days of Hearthstone. You have the classic Warlock Zoo that has been around in some shape or form from the beginning days of the game. Handlock which was a favorite among many players due to its unique style of play, and ability to heavily leverage the class' hero power. There was also Cube Warlock, which used Carnivorous Cube to takeover boards. Demonlock has also had times of strength, where Warlock got to explore their evil side anymore by employing a full deck worth of demons!

Best Warlock Decks for Scholomance Standard

The best decks for Warlock in the Scholomance meta right now are the Soul Fragment Handlock and Galakrond Warlock decks! Things aren't looking too great for the class right now, and the Soul Fragment list is the only one standing out from the new stuff at the moment.

Soul Fragment Warlock (Handlock)

While some people are calling this a Handlock, I don't really think it is one. You aren't really looking to increase your hand size for any particular reason. This was the whole point of the original deck, and would allow for you to play cheap Mountain Giants or high health Twilight Drakes. This deck is more of a pain deck, where you use your hero power to reduce the cost of Flesh Giant. The Soul Fragments are helpful to gain health back, and will also decrease the cost of the giant as well!

Prior to Expansion: Zoo Warlock Deck

You can just about always find a Zoolock of some sort on the ladder from Warlock. It might not always be the best deck, but it is usually strong enough to holds its own in most cases. It is currently one of the more popular options for the class at the moment, and could be getting stronger due to some new additions from Scholomance!

Best Warlock Decks for Scholomance Wild

Wild can be a bit difficult to predict, so here's a look at some decks that have been successful on the Wild ladder. You will find that the meta of Wild doesn't fluctuate as much as Standard does when a new expansion is released. This generally only happens if one Standard deck in particular is very dominant. Normally, you will notice that just the most powerful cards out of the set find their way into decks.

Wild Discard Zoolock Deck

While Zoo has had strong showings in Standard from time to time, it lives on in a stronger form in the Wild format. With all of the cards over the years that have dealt with discard, they have combined to make a strong aggressive board controlling list that is happy to throw some cards out of their hand!

Warlock Neutral
2x - Flame Imp
2x - Kobold Librarian
2x - Malchezaar's Imp
2x - Soulfire
2x - Voidwalker
2x - Darkshire Librarian
2x - Expired Merchant
2x - Felstalker
2x - Tiny Knight of Evil
2x - Silverware Golem
2x - Fist of Jaraxxus
2x - Lakkari Felhound
2x - Nightshade Matron
2x - Doomguard
2x - Hand of Gul'dan
