    I can't handle the salt of losing Reno to Dirty Rat because it happened to me twice while doing a Warlock Dominance quest, so I guess I'm going to just stop playing Reno decks. Thanks, Blizzard.

    Is there any deck that is favoured against aggro shaman/pirate warrior yet?

  • YiliasYilias Registered User regular
    Renolock, Dragon Priest, Tempo Mage, and Malygos Druid are all favored.

    Renolock? Really? I'd have thought they would be hard pressed to beat the fast weapon onslaught

  • YiliasYilias Registered User regular
    They have a gajillion removal spells, some lifegain stuff including Reno, and fat taunts.

    Control decks are running double weapon removal (sometimes triple) and are heavier on taunts than previously.

    We're see Faceless Shambler played in Renolock as well.

    ...and of course, as always, Kill Hitler.

    Yup seeing a warlock above rank 16 means you probably have to play around reno and kun.

    On one hand i hate losing to them, but many times it's only one or two turns extra vs the golem army. Just gotta calculate how much life you have to aim for to survive.

    Warlock and Kun? Warlock and Golems?

    It's not clear to me why we're not seeing a lot of hunters these days. It's always been good against warlock, handlock and Reno lock especially. Does the new version have enough tools to fend off hunter pressure?

    Druids are getting really clever on win conditions and ways to fight Renolock. We're seeing Black Knight and BGH emerge as a huge tempo plays against them

    I can say from vast personal experience that if you attempt to play dragon priest to counter shaman, you will have a miserable time.

    You need to run Excavated Evil to beat Shaman, too much 3 health stuff to get by on Holy Nova.

    Played pirate warrior for the first time trying to complete a daily, and lost a LOT of games as people have adjusted.

    I got BMed after after each match I lost, which frankly I deserved.

    Renolock named RNGesus Dirty rats out my Kazakus on T3. Haha, yeah... funny

    I'm playing Reno mage so I still won after he Jaraxxused a couple of pings and a pyroblast later. Got two Ice blocks from Tome and a fourth from Ethereal conjurer :)

    Man, I love Reno Mage, feels much better since I swapped in Yogg and Mirror image

    Reno mage is probably the most fun I've had in this game. The list has tons of wiggle room for customizing as well.

    Yeah. I could feel the adjustment happening after a couple of days on EU so I jumped ship to Aggro Shaman. It's a much much better deck.

    My rank suffers for it, but I play shit like almost all overload cards to get the quest done!

    And all these new quests they added make it impossible to line up all 3 quests to complete at once and hard for 2!

    I think I may be playing wrong, but at least I only play priest when quests force me to and I don't rope every turn!

    Hrm, MCT is a hard card to remember to play around after all this time. Especially combo'd with Brann!

    Paladin is not in a very good place, no question about it.

    It's still early, so maybe something will emerge, and Anyfin is still good (better with Finja), but paladin is probably the worst it's ever been aside from pre Naxx days.

    Murloc paladin has potential. I wouldn't put Anyfin in it, though. I run small time recruits and the class hand buff cards. Hard mulligan for STR, get it out as soon as possible, then buff the hand and drop murlocs. They are really good when they get a couple buffs on them. Take out all the spells except smuggler's run and recruits, use the aoe murloc as your board clear. It's really fun.

    Got a Nozdormu from raven idol against a Reno priest.

    actually Nozdormu sounds like a good card against jade druid/kun aviana combo types.

    ...Hold on, does Dragon Priest really only run one legendary (Brann), typically? I always thought I was missing some of the essential pieces, so I hadn't thought about trying it. No Ysera in this? Maybe because of the aggro-heavy meta?

    Yeah. The idea is that in so many decks, Ysera will just weigh you down. On the off-chance you're against a slow deck, you have Draconid Operative and the 1/3 "Discover a Dragon" card to get you late-game cards.

    How does that list fair against aggro warrior and Shaman? Sounds too slow to compete with those lists.

    Yeah the meta snapshot straight up calls out Deathwing and Ysera as cards you'll want in a more control-heavy meta, but that's not where we're at. You can get all the finishers you need off of Netherspite Historian if that's what it comes down to.

    I'm on a losing to jade druid's streak. these teen ranks seem to be all super slow decks which just makes it feel even more of a slog.

    hotform horrendously fucks up a play, talks about how his opponent was sniping for the rest of the game as he loses to jaraxxus

    yeah, the guy was obviously sniping. but you still had that game so far in the bag if you don't fuck up that turn, even against a sniper.
