Handlock has been a staple meta deck since the beginning of Hearthstone. Its core cards – [card]Twilight Drake[/card], [card]Molten Giant[/card] and [card]Mountain Giant[/card] – has never left its side throughout its evolution.
The Grant Tournament meta has caused the biggest shift in Handlock’s decklist since its inception. A popular variation now includes changes such as [card]Sludge Belcher[/card] and [card]Siphon Soul[/card] removed to make room for demons – [card]Voidcaller[/card], [card]Doomguard[/card], [card]Lord Jaraxxus[/card] and [card]malganis[/card]. These additions were made to combat the meta of Patron Warriors and Secret Paladins.

[card]Acidic Swamp Ooze[/card] is a great tech card in a weapon heavy meta, useful against Hunters, Paladins and Warriors.
Consider the addition of [card]Zombie Chow[/card] and [card]Sludge Belcher[/card] if you find yourself in a aggro heavy meta.
[card]Loatheb[/card] can be found in decks geared against Control heavy meta.
