Decklist spotlight: Purple’s Fatigue Warrior
Infuriate your enemies by playing 30-minute matches with this extra slow and controlling Warrior deck by Purple.
Ryan “Purple” Root has long been known as outside-the-box thinker. The Canadian coached Team Archon to their best results and helped build a talent school which produced such champions as Sebastian “Xixo” Bentert, Jon “Orange” Westberg, Paul “Zalae” Nemeth and more.
While Purple has been off the radar since he won the 2015 Americas Championship, he has by no means abandoned Hearthstone. His latest creation feature here is a deck that’s got a lot of love the past couple of days, as it features a playstyle somewhat forgotten: The fatigue war.
Warrior is possibly the perfect class to play this style in the current meta, with [card]justicar trueheart[/card] giving it enormous armor gain and the removal options being more opulent than ever. Unlike traditional control Warriors, this list runs no real threats (forget about [card]grommash hellscream[/card] or [card]sylvanas windrunner[/card]) and instead aims to run its opponent out of threats and then out of cards.
Once in the fatigue stage, this list makes itself immune through [card]violet illusionist[/card] and throws a combination [card]brann bronzebeard[/card] and [card]coldlight oracle[/card]s, spelling a quick doom of exhaustion.
If you aren’t in any rush to climb the ladder and can’t afford the Wallet N’Zoth Warriors, give this a try. It will take you some time but it will get you there. Find more ladder and tournament decks from Hearthstone's best players here.
