Standard Legend Patron Warrior - Sector One

Standard Legend Patron Warrior

The new patron warrior still has a high skill cap, but is very effective if played correctly. The ability to generate a large number of Grim Patron can provide you enough board to out tempo your opponent. Although 30+ damage combos in one turn are no longer available. Patron still has a fair amount of burst with Grommash Hellscream as a finisher or a Frothing Berserker left unchecked. Patron fairs very well against aggro while control decks are its toughest matchups.

Strategy

Patron is a combo-tempo deck; if you lose the board, you probably lose the game. Weapons are very important as they allow you to keep up with your opponent’s board development.

In some matchups like Renolock or Priest, you need to try to bait out one AOE spell, and then refill the board with patrons. This isn’t always possible if you are drawing dead, you need to risk it for the biscuit and hope they don’t have the AoE spell in their hands.

Mulligan

Mulligan for Fiery War Axe, weapons are crucial and have synergy with most of your cards. If you have a weapon in hand consider keeping early game minions ArmorsmithAcolyte of Pain, Sir Finley Mrrgglton. Your Mulligan should look somewhat like this:

Combos & Tips

  • [Sir Finley Mrrgglton] hero power ranking: 1. Mage, 2. Priest >> 3. Warlock / Shaman 4. Hunter 5. Druid / Paladin 6. Rogue
    Warlock hero power is not as good, because you may lose tempo by drawing a card.  Priest hero power is pretty good especially when you heal up your Frothing Berserker or Grim Patron and make your opponent unable to deal with it next turn. Mage hero power is the best because you can – “Kounet” Expert Patron player
  • Having your health below 30 will allow you to draw one more card from Battle Rage even if you have 30 armor at 29 Health
