    T1 is Odd Paladin, Hunters, Evenlock, and Odd Rogue.

    E: Cubelock, Even Shaman, and Even Paladin also T1 but in low sample size.

    Four more months of this shit!

    It's pretty funny to see 'The old list is better than the new experimental list' on virtually every deck.

    this is basically what happened last rotation too, iirc

    this is kinda my least favorite part of the hearthstone calendar, which is why I didn't buy rumble and am not really hot to craft anything until the rotation actually happens

    plus odd paladin is actually pretty cheap and plenty good to hit r5 with

    The structure of this solo content is interesting but I wish there was a way to say "Only offer me shrines I haven't beaten it yet"

    All of the other modes have some sort of marker that says "You've beaten it This Way" but this one just has "hey you did it once good job"

    As soon as the preview for it showed the "pick your class from 3" mechanic I thought, "but why? It's single player content, not arena, why do it this way?"

    i've run into three different malacrass totems

    one was difficult

    the other two.....were not
    Ok.

    haha, I got the treasure from below and then the passive that starts you with two shrines

    final boss of that run was malacrass, and his deck was empty by turn 9

    so the last boss of this rogue dungeon run was the warlock with the 'damage taken on your turn damages your opponent instead' shrine with 8 health

    their entire deck is self damage cards

    just an insta loss

    i died on turn 3 because they discovered a 10 mana spell with chittering tunneler

  • SaurfangSaurfang Registered User regular
    Yeah, it seems anecdotally that this run is harder because of the insane bullshit that the last bosses can pull.

  • BeastehBeasteh THAT WOULD NOT KILL DRACULARegistered User regular
    I did have an entertaining match as warlock with the self damage damages opponent shrine Vs the guy who deals 5 whenever he takes damage

    I drop flame imp, he takes 3 damage which triggers the 5 damage which he takes

    Which triggers a further chain of 5 damage reflects until he explodes on turn 1

    Rank 5 get! First time in 2 months. Went 10-1 w/Odd Mage, and even that loss would have been a win if DK Jaina wasn't in my bottom 5 cards against a Kingsbane Rogue. Decklist if anyone cares:

    ECzvICvfoCpIcDzYkDAA==.png

    AAECAf0ECNAC08UCm9MCw+oCnvgCw/gCpocDqIcDC+wH68ICysMCyMcC29MC1+ECt/ECzvICvfoCpIcDzYkDAA==

    Notes:
    • Hold Zola for Jan'alai in Control matches. Vs aggro, grab another Tar Creeper.
    • Against Control, it's best to play Bonfire Elemental without the card draw.
    • Blast Wave will wreck Odd Paladin and give you extra spells to boot!
    • Against Mage, throw away everything to find Jaina. Whoever plays her first usually wins.
    • Versus Hunter, hold on to one Flamestrike for post-Zul'Jin boards. Use Dragon's Fury first, even if it's over the top damage.
    • Drop Fire Fly early to have a 1-cost enabler for future Bonfire Elementals and Blazecaller activators.
    • Black Cat is awesome! Drop on 3 for draw/presence or hold on to later for a bigger Blast Wave.
    • Hold Ooze against Kingsbane Rogue for as long as possible. Heals you for a lot more and can delay drawing Kingsbane by 1 turn in fatigue, which can be huge to set up a Water Elemental.
    • Speaking of which, getting a Water Elemental to stick is basically GG vs Kingsbane. Do whatever you can to get them going.
    • Voodoo Dolls are your only big target removal. Use them wisely!
    • Let Paladin overfill the board, even if it means eating a Level Up turn. Board clear + Arcane Tyrant usually is enough to win.
    • It's pretty easy to overfill your hand. Be especially careful against Druid w/Naturalize.
    • Baron Geddon wrecks the board and heals you for a ton.
    • Don't be afraid to drop Daring Fire-Eater on 3 to kill a 3 health minion.
    • Baku sucks. Don't draw him.

    i dislike playing most variants of mage that play jaina (read: all of them) since you are turbofucked if she's at the bottom of your deck (and she's a heavy ass card, like an anchor)

    I've won plenty of games where i didn't play her. But yeah, if you need her and she's not there...well. But honestly, that's how it is for a lot of decks that heavily rely on a card or two.

    A lot of the rumble totems seem like pure bullshit. Some of the decks they give you are not prepared to deal with a 7-8-9 health spirit on turn 2, which is when you really need to be able to react to them. Otherwise they get out of control..

    Zola is a glue card. She doesn't win you games on her own, but she's one of the things that holds the deck together and makes it work. You're rarely like "Boom, I drew Zola, I win." But if there was a likely win% tracker on the game like there is in some sports, it'd generally bump up if you drew her.

    its even worse when you have a low health totem like the pirate card steal one

    once your totem's down, you're playing a fair deck vs an overpowered bullshit deck which is severely unfun and usually a loss

    Between this and getting the card back for one successful run, I think the idea is more "play this a few times a month when a quest comes up" rather than "binge until you exhaust all content."

    I mean we can't have you burning out on the expansion without buying moar crads right?

  • YiliasYilias Registered User regular
    Wild has shifted a little at least. Mass Hysteria has slotted right into Big Priest as 'board clear #875', so it's holding it's own against Odd Rogue/Odd Paladin/Even Shaman. Hunter was bottom 2 classes last expac with Warrior but all the new spell cards and Zul'jin has made Barnes+Y'Shaarj a playable list. Kingsbane is really popular again too despite all the aggro, runs a singleton Raiding Party.

    Big Priest and Kingsbane might actually be the top 2 decks, Big Priest beats everything not Kingsbane and Kingsbane stomps Big Priest and loses to everything else.

    You joke but Wild Priest lists are already like

    2 Spirit Lash
    2 Shadow Word: Horror
    2 Excavated Evil
    2 Mass Hysteria
    0-2 Dragonfire Potion
    1-2 Lightbomb
    2 Psychic Scream
    0-1 Shadowreaper Anduin

    and then you add from there. It's not uncommon to have a board of like 2 minions get aoe'd because they just have 4 more in hand.

    E: Oh and 2 Shadow Visions for more copies of whatever of course.

    finally beat rumble run with the bwonsamdi healing = damage shrine, shrine deathrattle: destroy opponent's shrine, and getting offered healing/fat minions/justicar and 2 of the 3 mana 3/5 rush, overkill: generate 3 healing spell minions

    was just a case of waiting out the opponent's bullshit, building board and strangling them out

    felt very arena

    You could swap Zola for Youthful Brewmaster. Doesn't work well vs Aggro, but keeps you recycling Jin'ali vs Control.

    It sounds like you've got a good stockpile of dust but Zola is not a make or break card for the deck, especially since she rotates so soon. What are you running in place of her compared to Dover's deck list?

    Boy don’t I look silly. Maybe swap her for a big value card (Ysera or Astromancer) vs Control or a board clear vs Aggro.

    Yeah, if you're looking to beat other greedy decks, I think another big boy threat like Dover suggested would be fine instead of Zola. A second Astromancer, or if you want to go really greedy, Ysera or Alexstrasza.
