    Also, the dust cost for this expansion feels obscene.

    Like, I appreciate making strong cards, but when so many of them are Legendary/Epic and mandatory to boot, it makes it really hard to play anymore than 1 class. I've spent 25k dust in this expansion and there's sill archetypes I don't have the dust to build. That seems...not healthy, if I'm honest.

    I'm one of the more forgiving people when it comes to Blizzard's business model, but this is absurd.

    There are a ton of amazing epics and it’s really hindering my ability to try out decks in different classes. Part of the reason I’ve been so bummed this early into the expac.

    I agree with this. I opened all of my packs with excitement, but... I'm missing a lot of pieces, even after opening about a hundred packs, so I haven't dipped in too much this week - and when I have, I've used old decks and maybe added a piece or two.

    I know that's basically par for the course, but I think Frozen Throne spoiled me by handing out so much cool, class-specific stuff (or maybe I was just really lucky with my pack opening, as I had a ton of Hero Cards to play with at launch). I need to do a little crafting and probably spend a little more $, but I haven't wanted to really do so until the meta settles.

    As a limited collection player, I'm torn about the 2018 rotation in April. On the one hand, good riddance to MSoG and Jades, Evolve, Patches, etc. On the other hand, I will be losing the last ever expansion where I actually have all the good cards from it (as a subset of having all the cards from Karazhan).

    I wonder if the increasing cost ends up amplifying "OP" cards, things become more prevalent because they're the "safe crafts" of the expansion and then people use them in every deck.

    If I have a handful of dust, am I likely to experiment with a fun memey deck or just craft some bonemares, cobalt scalebanes, patches and corridor creepers? If I could I'd like to try out an Oakheart, Dragonhatcher, Drakkari Enchanter combo deck, but that's several thousand more dust than I have so I'll probably make a southsea captain instead and keep chipping away with the same zoo deck I used all through KFT because I didn't have enough of the cards to make fun bullshit decks there either.

    i've said it before and i'll say it again, a huge problem with hearthstone is that goofy fun cards cost as much as competitive staples

    if you wanted to build a goofy king togwoggle deck in a physical game you could probably pick him up for a quarter, but because of the dust economy he's as expensive as the most powerful legendary in the game

    Yeah, this is a big part of it. I want to try Twig of the World Tree because I've seen some people experimenting with it, and it looks like fun. But then I've got to spend 1600 dust on a card that may not pan out. When it doesn't, all I get back is 400 dust, which hurts taking gambles on cards.

    It's pretty rough now as it looks like Corridor Creeper looks like it's going to be the Tar Creeper of this expansion, a minion that goes in nearly every deck that isn't trying to cheat something OP out. Hope you've got 800 dust saved up along with whatever you need to update your old deck from KOTFT. That's if your old deck/class is still viable in the new meta because if it's not (RIP warrior), you're going to need new legendaries, epics and so on.

    Better make sure that your new deck is still viable 2 expansions from now in a completely unknown meta.

    I mean, sure?

    If a new expansion came out and didn't lead to a bunch of changes in decks/strategy that would be a pretty shitty expansion.

    If K&C and released and there weren't at least a couple new cards that improved my existing Secret Mage deck, I would have been disappointed.

    Corridor Creeper being a must-pick for every non-control minion deck is a problem, but Patches was that problem already, and CC wouldn't be as bad without early game pirate rush being in every aggro/tempo deck

    The rest of your complaints, about making sure decks are viable multiple expansions in the future and new expansions changing the meta are just confusing. How did you expect this to work? If the new cards don't shift the meta, there would be no reason for people to buy them, and that's kind of the whole business model behind the game?

    For me it's warlocks/priests. or maybe just the patches package with creeper.

    Neutrals should be helping to fill gaps in decks, not forming the base shell that classes slot into. It's like every deck right now starts at 20 cards because the first 10 are all neutrals that you must play.

    eh I'm pretty sure I'm back to hating miracle rogues

    anyway anyone who spent any time playing big priest knows how powerful cheating a big minion out of your deck can be; in a way I like that they proliferated that mechanic to a bunch of classes but it also has the problem of increasing the variance of games

    is anyone playing big/control warrior? I ran into one of those on ladder last night, seemed like it'd be fun

    Returning to the game so late, I think I've just been operating on the assumption that I'm never going to be able to try out every popular deck

    KFT's Tempo Rogue and Big/Razakus Priest decks? Ha, no. I just kind of took that for granted and looked for cheaper decks I could work towards, and picked a handful of classes to focus on (Mage, Hunter, Warlock) and a couple that I'm just never going to worry about (Shaman, Warrior)

    Hearthstone: Lower your expectations before you play it!

    What a tagline! Looks like they've just got a great new marketing campaign.

    How can drawing 4 cards a turn be intended for other than an aggro deck?

    Ran into 2 opponents in a row playing Eater of Secrets while I was playing my minionless hunter, that was fun.

    Then I switched to Big Spell Priest and pulled a Duskbreaker on turn 3 to play on turn 4 to stall an aggro paladin long enough to get a primordial drake from Spiteful Summoner and really put the brakes on them

    Secrets Mage is more like a really fast Tempo deck than a straight up Aggro deck though, right

    You're not flooding the board with weenies and jamming face. You're dropping dudes on curve, trading out, establishing board, getting tempo swings with Kabal Lackey/Kirin Tor, controlling board with Secrets. The usual Midrange-y plan.

    If there were an actual Aggro Mage deck though, it'd run this for sure.

    The other day I was thinking how insane Aluneth would be if we still had Ice Lance.

    in SEVEN games I've pulled an early 3/9taunt monster one single time. every other time I draw them before the card that can pull them, and frequently I draw the two 9 costers in the first 4 hands

    having said that, I've also only lost 1 game. I'm using the list from Toast that was post in the last thread.

    I assume this will start to turn around and I'll find myself unable to win anything so expect that rant in a few hours

    voidlord is possibly the most unfun thing to face as aggro

    its a sludge belcher on steroids

    It wouldn't be bad at nine mana! Unfortunately no one ever actually spends nine mana to play it :P

    People very unexcited about recruit and I was trying to warn people that it's a very powerful mechanic. If not done right, it can be incredibly oppressive.

    It feels real close to that point right now.

    I had trouble feeling any way about it because it took me so long to understand it. once I did it seemed great to me. you can dictate it fairly well..... only issue being obviously relying on DRAW ORDER

    i've said it before and i'll say it again, a huge problem with hearthstone is that goofy fun cards cost as much as competitive staples

    if you wanted to build a goofy king togwoggle deck in a physical game you could probably pick him up for a quarter, but because of the dust economy he's as expensive as the most powerful legendary in the game

    eternal's way of handling dust is so much better

    it's still got a lot of problems with economizing dust, but getting all your dust back for a crafted card is really nice

    Okay it's not an aggro deck in the sense that it smorcs from turn 1 with 1/1s, but it is a deck which will happily run out of cards very quickly. Half the deck is 1 or 2 mana and depending on the variant you have 4 to 8 "cheated" minions/secrets. Aluneth lists tend to be tuned to be more aggro-y/cheap cards too

    i have beaten 3 control warlocks through fatigue so far, because the value never ends!
    also i've beaten a lot of meme hunters and a few jade druids, but i think jade is a very tough matchup so i added one geist.

    this list is still a little unrefined, but it has a lot of room for sweet tech choices.
    also you can totally cut keleseth and the deck has no legendary cards (but a lot of weird-ass epics).

    mulligan hard for duskbreaker and a dragon against any kind of aggro.
