Standard Legend Dragon Warrior

Posted by Rondels 28 August 2016 in Hearthstone

This Legend Dragon Warrior has become one of the staple warrior decks and is a very effective ladder & tournament deck. The games are quick and can be over very rapidly, allowing a smooth grind to Legend. It also applies tons of pressure it situates somewhere in between an aggro and Midrange deck due to the inclusion of some late-game threats. We are featuring the Standard Legend Build professional player “Sjow” used to take rank 1 Legend.

Strategy

Dragon Warrior is a rather aggressive deck that tries to apply heavy pressure to its opponent from the start. Gain control of the board in the early game through dragon synergy [Alexstrasza’s Champion] and weapons (Fiery War Axe, N'Zoth's First Mate. Your time to shine and apply heavy pressure is in the mid to late game dropping major threats such as: Ragnaros the Firelord, Grommash Hellscream and Drakonid Crusher.

Make sure that you are not overly trading when playing versus control, this deck is still a tempo deck and will get outvalued when the game drags out. When playing versus other tempo or versus aggressive decks you should fight for board and value trade, unless you are far ahead.

Mulligan

Only keep Blood To Ichor on The Coin versus aggro.

Look for: N'Zoth's First Mate, Alexstrasza's Champion, Sir Finley Mrrgglton, Fiery War Axe, Faerie Dragon. It’s okay to keep Azure Drake, Twilight Guardian to make sure Alexstrasza's Champion gets the dragon synergy effect.

Consider keeping Execute when playing vs Shaman for their Flamewreathed Faceless (only when having a good hand)

Combos & Tips

  • Execute can allow more face damage and force your opponent to deal with a minion don’t be too greedy with the card.
  • Sometimes it is right holding onto a Dragon when you have yet to draw your synergy cards.
  • Drakonid Crusher can be a very annoying minion to deal with when your opponent is dropping low.
