    Won a game as Deathrattle Hunter. It got silly in the end when I had so many Explorer's Hats that I felt like Oprah giving them all away!

    While it is dominant, it certainly is fun. I swapped in a single Lock and Load for an Abusive Sargent. Can't wait to add in Sir Finley Mrrgglton this week.

    Oh wow, just had an RNGsus moment.

    Pally has two minions on the board (Rend and Nef) and 14 health. I have two boom bots and an annoyotron on my board, with shadowflame, ET and Doomguard in my hand.

    Two boombots into nef to get him into ET-shadowflame range...both hit poor Pally in the face for 4 each, giving me exact lethal with my Doomguard plus Annoyotron.

    I almost felt sorry for him- he wasn't even playing secrets!

    Holy shit, I just played against a Reno warrior who roped every other turn (and presumably kept BM emoting after I muted him), but I thought I could win since it took him a while to find Justicar and I was playing Shaman and had 2 healing waves, but nope, he had Gorehowl and a fucking *second* bouncing blade for my Ysera that was at the bottom of the deck. This dude trolled me harder than anyone in my 2 years playing LoL Jesus fucking Christ.

    I don't think that poor paladin understood Fellreaver. I know the downside of fellreaver is usually vastly overestimated but I've never seen someone drop an owl on one before.

    This poor warrior. Sylvanas "wins" the 1/3 to steal my mana tide, and then he plays Brawl when I have 3 minions out and...

    womp womp, that mana tide did like 30 damage to him

    I love how bizarrely dominant midrange shaman is against control warrior. I don't even build for it and even after the addition of Justicar (it always goes to fatigue for me) it's like a 70-30 matchup.

    Worse matchup than midrange Paladin; not as bad as midrange Druid.

    They just get way too much value and can go wide way too easily. The only way you win is if you stabilize around 8-9 mana and land a finisher when they don't have a Hex.

    They always have a Hex.

    I don't feel like midrange druid is that great against warrior. I probably just play it incorrectly or my memory is wrecked by salt.

    but dreadsteed lock eats pally alive woooo. went like 4-2 with kibler's version, first time playing it, and I was 1 turn off from beating a warrior and somehow lost to a druid after getting a gross hellfire off with 2 minions he refused to attack out of stealth with and a piloted shredder. either of those could easily have been wins.

    then beat 3 straight pally, although none were secrets.

    just if you get an early dreadsteed you can negate their hero power, plus kibler runs 2xdemonwrath which is a superb board clear vs pally.

    Running double BGH in control warrior to justify my taskmasters. First handlock I play against is a reno version. I lose because I had to beat my way through the mountain, boom, and mal'ganis manually, only getting to BGH to molten. Draw my second BGH as I'm getting beaten to death by infernals. god dammit.

    Have to say, it's very satisfying unloading 4 hats on Eydis Darkbane while your opponent has an empty board.

    People wanted a midrange meta, not a control meta. Certainly not troll fatigue deck meta (although the time constraint will prevent that from happening too much on ladder)

    While I'd love to play a fun viable shaman deck, I was trying to pound out some warrior wins for dailies, and it turns out control warrior doesn't really perform well against fatigue!

    Or I just suck, that's totally possible.

    No you're right, control warrior does badly against decks that are even more lategame focused.

    Control Shaman only is late game versus control, where it outdoes your opponent by clearing multiple threats with fewer cards, keeping card advantage and producing multiple giant like minions, just like hand lock.

    Versus aggro it can go off much quicker, as your life total gives access to moltens sooner, while still removing full boards with 1/2 cards, bashing their heads in with giant threats they cannot answer and healing up to 25+ life 4-5 times.

    It really depends on the matchup, but so far I smile when I see a Hunter, mage or Warrior show up. Palladian is much trickier though, it depends on who has the most staying/removal power. The beetles helped this matchup, thank god.

    This morning my quest was to do 100 damage to an enemy hero. The game I played was mid-range Pally against a Reno warrior, where I did 70 damage and lost. Thanks for pointing that out Blizzard.

  • TheCanManTheCanMan GT: Gasman122009 JerseyRegistered User regular
    Wow, that poor newbie Warlock is not happy right now. That is probably the most trollish win I've had so far since I started playing this game.

    I was at 6 health and he's at mid-20s, but he's down to just a couple cards remaining in his deck with a Boulderfist Ogre and a Chillwind Yeti and I've got a Snowchugger and Mech Yeti. The final 9 turns go like this:

    - I kill his Yeti with a Roaring Torch, freeze the Ogre with a Frostbolt and go face, he plays a Doomguard.
    - I kill the Ogre with my Yeti and freeze the Doomguard with my Chugger, he does nothing.
    - I drop a Blizzard, he takes fatigue and does nothing.
    - I play Frost Nova, he takes fatigue and does nothing.
    - I play another Frost Nova, he takes fatigue and does nothing.
    - I top-deck an Annoy-o-tron, he takes fatigue and attacks the bot with both minions.
    - I top-deck another Annoy-o-tron, he takes fatigue and attacks the bot with both minions.
    - He concedes since fatigue next turn is lethal.

    I wanted to hit a sincere "Sorry", but after that sequence there was zero chance that he wouldn't have assumed I was being a dick.

    No idea. Feels like I lose 90% of the time regardless of what (partial) deck I'm playing and which deck my opponent is playing. I've resigned myself to pushing to 15 with stupid Face Hunter at the beginning of the season and then dicking around in Casual for the rest of the month.

    I'm not sure there is a definable meta right now. My experience may not be representative, but I see face hunter, secret paladin, and control warrior about twice as often as any other deck. The catch is that 'any other deck' could be literally anything.

    I think tempo mage is the way to go if you want to play mage right now. Mech Mage has been really unreliable for me and we'll see how freeze shakes out with all these Renos running around.

    I mean, prior to LoE launching? Absolutely.

    Mech Mage shits on Midrange Druid and Secrets Paladin, and I think Face Hunter? Solid, yo.

    Problem is, the meta is too chaotic with LoE being a thing now. We'll see where things shake out after this.

    I've been running and tweaking my own QM Paladin since LoE, and I'm kind of in love. All the cards feel so strong that I think if I ever craft Tirion, it's probably gonna be Boom that is replaced.

    edit: I mean, I can outrace a face hunter (a turn 3 9/9 Blood Knight is not something you can ignore), can out-value just about anything. So far, my only real weakness seems to be decks that draw and curve perfectly and keep my board completely clear.

    Exactly. Never release new content when you don't have people there to start working on any unforeseen problems that arise.

    Varian Wrynn is bonkersly good here as your whole deck is just 2 mana 2/3 pirates.

    10 mana 7/7 and 3x 2/3s yes, that will do.
