    Yeah, I was going to ask how well the Astromancers work in practice. If they're not usually giving you satisfaction, dump one of those bitches for a dargon!

    pocket galaxy is imo way too greedy, especially in a deck whose goal is not really to blow the opponent out with a lategame rush of value. I would much rather have another clear or another astromancer

    also re: zola: the value in odd mage is really just duplicating jan'alai, which will definitely help you vs other degenerate control archetypes. Being able to drop a loa+zola one turn and another rag the next if they clear is backbreaking for a lot of decks

    but zola also rotates next year so I dunno, depends how much you like your dust I guess

    Been playing a fun Rogue Pirate/Keleseth deck and have been climbing from 20-17 right now. Of course I assume I just jinxed myself, but it has been fun!

    edit: Yup! Stuck at 17. Lost to a Kingsbane Rogue whose weapon was at 12 attack so FML. I never drew Keleseth, the Rogue pirate legend, or my second Chain Gang (after Shadowstepping the first one 2 times).

    But blastwave doesn't clear shit on its own besides pally tokens and i've been beating those anyway. Even double blackcat (which happens literally never) only deals 4.

    Im gonna go with pocket, one astro and ysera for now.

    5 mana for 2 AoE isn't that bad though. The Overkill bonus is just icing on the cake. It still enables a 5 damage Dragon's Fury and is huge with an Arcane Tyrant follow-up. Pocket Galaxy just doesn't really synergize with what the deck is trying to do, but you do you man. Good luck!

    No you're right on pockets effect not being what i'm looking for either. I do like its 7 dmg dragon fury value but yeah.

    Decided to try hopping back into Arena today since it's... been a hot minute and I didn't buy into Rastakhan's so I have no cards (not like it matters though right? old decklists better still, yikes)... but also cause I'm kinda meh about Standard/Constructed right now.

    Didn't bother turning on my Arena Drafting app out of laziness but w/e, I decided to wing it and reference Lightforge when necessary.

    11-1 so far with a completely busted Tempo Rogue deck.

    Yeah. Yeah. I guess I'm not half bad at this game especially if I more or less drafted that by myself.

    (also, watching MY BOY Dreads on Twitch reeeeeally helped me with some of the finer Arena details. Osmosis, y'all.)

    ((that's twitch.tv/dreads if y'all wanna check him out and give him a follow, he's very very good at Arena, super chill, and very informative. been my go-to streamer for months now.))

    Beat the rumble single player.

    Got Halazzi's mantle which rants beasts rush, taunt or poison. Did my best to keep a poison alive and a taunt to guard it so I did lots of board control and killed their shrines right after they came back to life. Also had 3 kathrinas, with one turn being unable to not take a kathrina due to her being in so many buckets.

    I like the single player content because it gives you a chance to try things without committing dust. Its easy to look up a tier list and see a powerful deck, but I want a deck that is fun for me to play as well. I like this one because everyone is just a normal class instead of being tuned to be oppressive. Also if you think a shrine is too powerful you can play with that shrine in a future run. So even if you fail a bunch you a learning the game each time, which makes for a good rogue-like experience. But then I like rogue-likes to begin with. And I like that I dont need to grind out a bunch of wins with each class as well, though I will probably come back and just mess around.

    Take druid armor gain and fire it into the fucking sun

    Love losing because they gained 50-60 armor while drawing their entire goddamn deck. You don't have to think when you can gain 9 armor and draw a card for 3 mana!

    They aren't top tier, but I would rather lose to literally anything else at this point.

    Man, this single player content is real bad.

    They really dropped the ball.

    Its amazing how they managed to ruin virtually every element of dungeon run, while making something that looks so similar.

    I think part of it is that the AI cheats by starting with the same cards every time. Now the AI always did this mind, but in the case of this particular dungeon run, the opening hand always synergizes with the totem so for several of them, even if you kill their totem early they're still lined up to pull out some extreme bullshit as soon as the totem comes back up - such as Loti filling the board with ~7/7s on turn 5-6 or a spell damage Malacrass clearing your board every 3 turns when the shine pops back up.

    Late game pirate with the card steal shrine is almost a guaranteed loss except for the most degenerate deck builds, because she has twice your deck to begin with and twice your health and is still stealing a card from you every 3 turns at the slowest, so not only can you not attrition her out, you can't afford to leave her minions up so she can react to your board, but she has too much health to rush down even if you did try to ignore her board.

    Done this a bunch with Shaman in dungeon run. Can build a deck that chops through the minibosses before turn ten consistantly and then get hard locked on the last boss. Over 100 wins with Shaman and I think Ive seen all five bosses with him too.

    So I can sympathize with toki commiserations even then I beat toki on my second try.

    Looking for a cheap way to aggro your way up the ladder? Try this Beast Hunter deck!

    AAECAR8C/gyG0wIOqAK1A7sF6wfbCYEKr8ICicMCjsMC180C3dICi+UCoIUDsIsDAA==

    That's only x1 Rare (Bow), x2 Epic (BIttertide Hydra), and x1 Legendary (DK Rexxar). A mere 3,220 dust. You can cut the Hydras for Highmanes and Rexxar for Leeroy. Depends on how aggro you wanna go. If you go the Leeroy route, I'd probably cut another card (Bow?) for an Owl.

    As with most aggro decks, you're looking to curve out hard, especially on turns 1-2. Getting any of your 6 one-drops into a Razormaw or Hatchet is pretty strong. Following up with Bearshark/Animal companion -> Houndmaster is backbreaking.

    GLHF!

    it feels really watered down and bland and has a distinct lack of identity

    you can't even choose your class. you're no longer facing "bosses", just "classes" with different shrines. and that takes a lot of the fun out of it. it's actually kinda really lazy.

    i got like three bosses in before i realized i just wasn't having fun. i dunno what they did or how they managed to bungle such a proven formula, but they did.

    oh, and there's no like actual reward other than clearing it once and you get a card back. there's no reason to play it beyond that. clear it once you're done. dungeon run had all 9 classes, monster hunt had only 4 but they were unique classes.... rumble is just, like, why.

    There’s two main issues, I think:

    1) you pick your “concept” right off the bat, which takes a lot of the fun out of drafting the deck. There’s no element of picking a class and then being surprised at how the deck turns out, since you’re basically just trying to leverage your shrine.

    2) There seem to be a lot of outright bad matchups; this was a factor in dungeon run too ofc but feels more pronounced in rumble cause of how important keeping your shrine in the board is

    It's just an unpolished mess.

    For example, in dungeon run, they have the "look at this boss' hero power" before you start the battle. This helps you decide on your mulligan before you can mouse over stuff and gives you a good idea what the boss is going to be doing.

    Its still there in brawl, but it just shows you a standard hero power, and you have no idea which totem you're going up against during the mulligan(unless you memorize all 27 totem art).

    The buckets are too narrow, generally you have your pick chosen for you by your synergy.

    I'm playing the dragon totem, Do i pick the bucket with 3 dragons!? gee, I wonder. The legendary picks are the same. And the final totem passive is honestly pretty weak, and the choice doesn't feel like it matters that much.

    Just countered the single player cheese by picking the Rogue one where you steal a card from your Opponent's deck and discount it by 2. Then later on getting the option to start with two of your shrines. Oh hi there Opponent Number 8 Shudderwock which I steal the first round and then continue to steal your triple buffed minions for the win.

    But yeah only way to beat this one is with cheese.

    I get how this single player got made, the hook is that there are no AI decks. Every deck that the computers have is a deck that you could make yourself around that shrine. But is that compelling? Eeh.
