With the rotation of Reno Jackson at the beginning of the Year of the Mammoth, and Kazakus at the beginning of the Year of the Raven, Reno Warlock became a wild-exclusive archetype. For more information, see Game format.

Reno Warlock, often shortened to Reno Lock or Renolock, is a Warlock deck built around Reno Jackson and often Kazakus.

Reno Lock was originally invented in League of Explorers with the release of Reno Jackson, and got significantly stronger in Mean Streets of Gadgetzan with the release of Kazakus. It became a Wild deck with the start of the Year of the Mammoth and Reno Jackson's removal from Standard format.

Deck type[edit | edit source]

Reno Lock is a control deck, and uses similar cards to other control Warlock decks, such as Twilight Drake, Mountain Giant and Lord Jaraxxus. Life Tap is an essential part of Reno Lock, as drawing Reno Jackson as early as possible is important for countering aggro decks.
