    Oh man... I briefly tasted rank 2 and thought I had things figured out, and then bam! Crumbled all the way back to 5. I've never had a swing like this in all my time playing this game, I guess that's priest for you.

    On the upside, I successfully trolled this guy:

    another pirate warrior goes down to not killing my water elemental

    many missed swings and dead cards. I survived at 1 health for 2 turns and then drew alex on turn 9.

    not trying to post about every game I play but it's been a dramatic night!

    I am salty. I got up to Rank 9 with dumb cheapo aggro Shaman, hit a Pirate Warrior wall, teched my deck with a bunch of countermeasures, switched to Mage when I kept losing, and now I'm back to Rank 13 and I'm seeing all kinds of bizarre decks.

    Edit: Also Love Actually is on in the background which isn't helpful. Just let me watch my yule log am I right

    After a not so scientific analysis of this week's brawl, I believe I have determined the meta:

    I brawled as druid because I had two 60 gold "Win 5 with Druid or X" quests and rerolled my third quest this morning to Win 5 Tavern Brawls. I had no choice but to try to grind out 5 wins in Brawl. Amazingly it went pretty well. I went 5-2 with a druid deck where I filtered for deathrattles and just started clicking away on the ones I figured had the best value, then added two innervates, two wild growths, and a savage roar. My two losses were to priests.

    After I completed the 180 gold megaquest, I bought 10 MSoG packs. Unfortunately, I wasted my Hearthstone luck forever. In the first 6 packs I opened, I got 3 legendaries. Happy Feast of Winterveil to me?

    I got Wickerflame Burnbristle, Auctionmaster Beardo ( :( ), and Knuckles. Not sure how well I did there, although I'm pretty sure Beardo is garbage.

    As a casual, non-whale player, I'm like half a dozen legendaries (and probably a couple other cards) short of Reno Priest, so that does me little good.

    These dirty rat screenshots are bringing back memories of the like half dozen times my ancestral call deck really fucked people up and how damn much fun that was.

    I don't want to have to craft dirty rat.

    I might just have to craft dirty rat.

    I crafted a dirty rat. It is by far the worst craft ever. All it does is hilariously loose me games except for the one time it pulled a Yogg I could kill.

    the opponent used his own rat to pull the player's reno, so the player responded by playing a brann and a rat, pulling the opponent's reno.

    I mean, yeah, this.

    For all the cool new shit and all the cool new toys they introduced, they also snuck in some goddamn bullshit aggro cards that have managed to thrust the meta into HYPERSPEED

    Every single time it looks like the meta is going to slow down, it doesn't. It doesn't because there's 1-2 new aggro cards that just, go under the radar until the expac actually releases. And then everyone discovers those new aggro cards are ridiculous and oops now the meta's super fast!

    Frustrating. I mean, I gave up on my slow Reno decks and just, decided to run Pirate decks. Because they're the dumbest most efficient decks to climb with now. Sigh.

    Brawl done thank god. I have no good deathrattle cards at all. Made a dragon priest deck with heavy silence and heal options.

    I actually cheered when my opponent played the "heal both players for 4" deathrattle. It was just what i needed to stall into my 5+ mana dragons

    The fastest deck will always define the ladder environment. At a certain point you have to decide what's more important? "Do I hit rank X as fast as possible, or do I just play decks I find fun?"

    There's a YouTuber I like, Dane. He's not super popular because he's not really considered a competitive player. But he told his stream a few weeks ago that he's hit legend a bunch of times, but at a certain point he stopped caring about the grind because he wanted to play the fun stuff. He plays these absolutely ridiculous decks and makes them work somehow. He's a good player, but he is not focused on the competitiveness of the game.

    I lost two ranks the other day because I spent a couple hours playing with paladin decks. I probably could've hit rank 10 by now and I'd be done with the season if I just stuck with some aggro deck or other. Hell, I probably could have come here and said "should I try this paladin deck" and you all would've been like "fuck no, that's terrible" and you would've been correct. But I wanted to see for myself. That was a fun experience for me even though I had a 20% win rate during that time.

    Unless being the absolute highest rank you can be is the most important thing, just play what you want to play.

    If they were truly serious about propping up slower control decks, then they need to start printing cheaper and better board clears.

    I'm talking Wrath of God style board clears that we nearly got with Poison Seeds, except they designed that card in such a way as it didn't actually succeed at its primary purpose.

    Isn't this the slowest meta we've had in a long time? Sure there's an aggro deck but Malygos Druid and Reno both seem very popular.

    I think that's what most people do, but the consternation comes from how painful and/or unfun it is to reach that rank in the current meta.

    This is the best meta game we've had since release. Aggro is good. Control is good. Combo is good.

    Reno lock is the best deck but it's super skill intensive and isn't degenerate. I can't even remember the last time that was true. We have an actually healthy meta game where battlecruiser aviana kun combos are a legitimate end game.

    It is however very skill intensive from a mulligan and deck building standpoint, which can lead to frustrating early losses
