Hearthstone: The Summoning Portal Warlock Deck

The legendary Jake Crawford finally joins us on the show, after hiding in the donations list for months. He’s bringing some old-school cards with him and he attempts to take down the reigning champion deck with a creative Warlock deck that’s a fun throwback to the classic meta. This one’s extra fun for people that have been playing since launch!

What is a Deck Battle?

Once a month, a guest host brings their favorite deck onto the show to battle the current reigning champion deck for control of the Happy Hearthstone Deck Battle Throne!

If the challenger wins the best-of-3 series, their deck becomes the new Reigning Champion Deck and will fight off future challengers until it loses, or until it’s earned its place in the Happy Hearthstone Hall of Fame!

Defending Deck: Andrew’s Warlock Demon Zoo deck has reigned supreme for 7 months, and has beaten 5 decks before this episode.

Challenger Deck: Jake Crawford’s Warlock Portal Deck starts slow and builds up to overload you with massive minions all at once.

The Deck




In case you don’t have some of the ideal cards, here are some quality back ups and alterations you can make that keep with the same theme and strengths of the deck.

The Duel

Unfortunately, technical issues devoured the livestream footage of the deck battle and dust bowl this week. I’m very sorry! It was a 2-0 win for Andrew’s Warlock deck. The first match was pretty one-sided, and the second match was very close.

On a related note, if anyone has a recommendation for a good mixer that doesn’t produce apocalypse-level distortion effects, please let me know 🙂
