Dungeons & Dragons has been one of the most influential properties to the world of video games ever made. It only makes perfect sense that other tabletop games take cues from the digital influences of D&D, and spread them into other tabletop legends. That’s where The Warlock of Firetop Mountain comes into play. The game is based off a “choose your own adventure” book from the early 1980s, which is essentially single-player D&D, and does a wonderful job at creating a distinct
During our first week in Karazhan, we fought Disney parodies and played intriguing games of chess. The cards we got as a result were generally interesting, though not exactly meta-defining. Like Beast Druid before it, Discard Warlock, an archetype Blizzard’s been trying to make viable since launch, finally got enough tools to take a second look at. Note, Malchezzar’s Imp isn’t in this particular version because as of this publishing date, it isn’t live yet. Keep that in mind.
Last week, we diverged from the meta, hard. With Zoolock, we’re sticking a little closer to the normal conventions but throwing some interesting twists into it too.

This week’s guide tackles a variation of the staple Renolock, focusing on the titular League of Explorers and their nemesis, Rafaam. Like many Reno Warlocks before it, the Explorers Warlock spreads itself a bit thin as there’s only o
Week one of The League of Explorers brought us one Reno Jackson. This 4/6 for 6 drop fully restores your health should you not have duplicates of any card in your deck. A well timed Reno drop can completely shift your opponent’s battle plans as the addition of 30 health means aggressive decks like Face Hunter or Aggro Druid will need to have more legs to stand on for late game. Let’s take a look at one of the biggest beneficiaries of Mr. Jackson, the Warlock. Warlock’s main b
