This is my list. I’m sitting at R9 and have gone 19-5 with this deck so thats pretty good. My question is…

Is this a bad matchup for my deck, OR am I not playing this matchup correctly? From 15-10, I think I encountered maybe 3 renolocks? 10-9 was a few big priests which I ate for breakfast as well as murloc shamans.

Big Shaman can sometimes pull a win, as well as quest mage but for the most part, its been a relatively chill climb. I don’t want to target Renolock specifically because I haven’t seen that many of them: I’d just like to know if I should tech against it, or suck up the losses in the matchup.

I always put in an effort but once I see no way out, I do concede.


weird Warlock deck.


It just has unusual tech cards.


you probably need to add reno jackson in your reno deck.


Even shaman should beat renolock but you should add a second devolve, it’s too good of a card to not have two copies


Title edited…I’ll find some youtube videos and try to figure it out…


From around 10 to 7 i havent seen any renolocks. just big priest and quest mage (both versions) Renolock has a decent amount of board clear But you should be able to finish the game before turn 8. I think the match up probably relies on the warlock list and if they have reno by turn 6.
