Gul’dan is a ranged assassin hailing from Warcraft II, and World of Warcraft. He has two resource mechanics as a Warlock: Drain Life and Mana Tap. These two may extend the time the gameplay time in the battlefield before going back to the mana well or teleporting to the base, however there is a downside to mana tap: it drains your life about 20-25%. That’s where one has to be careful not to get ambushed. Tracer and Greymane are better counters to Gul’dan.
