Hey guys and gals, DarkArbiter here bringing you an article I’ve been wanting to do for a while now. I haven’t had much time lately to do anything other than my weekly deck series, but I wanted to revisit a topic that was incredibly popular the first time I approached it. This topic is about reducing the cost of one of my favorite decks, a deck that can be considered to be one of the most expensive competitive decks to craft, Control Warrior.
For those of you new here, I guess a bit of background wouldn’t go amiss. Ever since I started playing, I fell in love with the Warrior class and how consistently powerful it feels to play it. However, there is no doubt that it is incredibly difficult to amass all of the cards to assemble the deck due to the large number of Legendaries the Warrior utilizes in its control strategy.
This didn’t deter me though, and shortly before I started writing for this website I constructed a Control Warrior deck that utilized the cards that a budgeted player might have at their disposal, keeping only the bare minimum of what was required for Warrior to function as a control archetype. This ended up being the second topic that I ended up writing about, and you can find the fruits of my labor here.
However, that deck no longer works. Much has changed since then, with the most significant being the release of Curse of Naxxramas. This adventure mode has muddied the waters a bit in that it is significantly harder to make budgetary recommendations when people have to juggle spending gold not just on packs but also on each wing of the adventure.
With that being said though, it is slightly easier to discuss this from the perspective of mid-budget terms. If you are at the point were you have gathered the cards for a low-budget deck such as Zoo and are now working on amassing cards for a second deck, you are at the mid-budget level of play. As a result, unlocking every wing of Naxxramas should be a top priority, and for the rest of this article I will proceed with the assumption that you have done so.
Now, without wasting anymore of your time, I present to you my Mid-Budget Control Warrior.
