Standard Legend Reno Warlock Renolock - Sector One

Standard Legend Reno Warlock / Renolock

Reno Warlock is a twist on the classic Handlock archetype, using Life Tap to cycle through the deck and entirely centered around abusing Reno Jackson. There are a few versions of this deck but its general idea is to survive the early game and pump out big threats in the mid to late game. It brings 2 huge threats to the table: either winning with the Leeroy Jenkins+ Power Overwhelming + Faceless Manipulator combination or using N'Zoth, the Corruptor to instantly flood the board.

Strategy

Look for an efficient series of plays that will get you out onto the board from the very start. You will be hitting Life Tap an awful lot with this deck, so factor that into your thinking. You want to be surviving the early game until you hit big swing turn, being able to flood the board and then heal back to full with Reno Jackson can be enough in most match-ups.

 

When facing aggro, your main goal is to survive and take as little as damage possible in the early stages of the game. Your minions outvalue theirs and a Reno Jackson can be game over in most fast-paced games.
When facing control, you want to start setting up for your combo – get an Emperor Thaurissan proc on one or more of these cards: Leeroy Jenkins + Power Overwhelming + Faceless Manipulator and it will allow you to burst your opponent for 20 damage. You can also use Alexstrasza offensively if needed, best used after you’ve seen healing effects from your opponent. You can also win through board control with the N'Zoth, the Corruptor.

Mulligan

Always keep: Reno Jackson, Doomsayer, Imp Gang Boss, Dark Peddler.

Keep a 4-drop if you have a decent curve.
If you suspect any sort of board flooding keep a Hellfire or Demonwrath.
