"Patron Warrior is not only the best deck, it's also the most fun!" - Zalae 


The Patron Warrior specializes in setting up powerful combinations such as turn 4 Death's Bite turn 5 Grim Patron Inner Rage creating 4 Patrons while clearing most of the opponents board. On turn 8 Warsong Commander plus Grim Patron can clear the opponent's small minions while creating an enormous board presence. Against decks that have AoE such as Lightbomb or Hellfire to deal with your Patrons, you can set up a huge one turn kill combo with Warsong Commander and as many Frothing Berserkers and Whirlwind effects as you can find. Emperor Thaurissan is important for setting up that kind of lethal.


  • STRONG vs.
    • Combo Druid, Zoo, Paladin, small creatures in general get punished by Patrons, weapons, and Whirlwinds.
  • WEAK vs.
    • Handlock, Freezing Trap Hunters, Aggressive decks with big creatures, Harrison on your Death's Bite because setting up big turns with Death's Bite is so important.



  • They don't have good recovery mechanics so just get ahead on board. Try to make a bunch of Patrons on turn 5.

  • Familiarize yourself with common Hunter lists so you know what traps to play around.

  • Play defensively against most mages, but aggressively against Freeze mages.

  • Just survive until you can make a bunch of Patrons and win. When you're ahead on board don't over-commit in to Equality.

  • Card advantage is important. Don't over-commit in to aoe. Don't let them Cabal your Acolyte. Play it slow.
  • Kill every minion they play so you don't die to oil.

  • Identify early on whether they are Mech or not. Against Mech just survive. Otherwise be conservative with your cards.

  • God I hope he's zoo. Weapon please.

  • Don't keep Armorsmith. This matchup is more about card advantage and combos than incremental life advantages.
