    Is Reno beatable? He keeps killing me T1.

    Edit: third time’s the charm. He had been playing the “your spells cast twice” guy with the “gain five mana crystals” spell, the “gain 5 spell damage” spell, and then started blasting me for a T1 lethal.

    Yeah had that on the first attempt I did. Sometimes he just has a nutso draw that's not possible to counter.

    I'm the opposite where my rogue opponent was dead to rights but played an emergency 1 draw Galakrond and hit scamqueen scamextrasza which gave him the heal to full dragon and my reaction was not to scream and punch drywall but instead to laugh bitterly and concede with zero emotional register

    I am at the Standard rank 10 floor right now, living my best life.

    In another week or so I'll play a serious deck and knock out rank 5 in Standard.

    But for now, life is good.

    I'm pretty annoyed that the "you won't face the same opponent more than once every three rounds" patch doesn't work right for the top 3. I run into this all the time.

    Well this was just plain unfair lmao

    Triple Kaboom with Triple Rivendare would basically all but assure Divine Shields were gone, Kangor's would resummon THREE of them, my final opponent's Hydra cleaved onto ALL THREE AT THE SAME TIME and that was it. The resulting damage explosion cleaned basically everything else up save a few but the Ghastcoilers ended up doing WORK after that.

    I originally had a Mama Bear with Rat Pack and some other stuff but I upgraded to 6 and pitched Mama and the Rat for other better shit (2nd Ghastcoiler, Kangor's). I also had a triple Selfless too, but there was a choice of pitching that or Kaboom and I decided to keep Kaboom instead since I knew nabbing a Kangor's would be easy gg.


    edit: It was actually a really strange road getting to this point though, I started out just spamming Yogg's HP and ended up with a strong midgame of Soul Jugglers/Demons/Mal'ganis? No Wrath Weaver or Floating Watcher, just Soul Juggler pings and triple Imprisoner and stuff like that (along with Selfless, Spawn of N'Zoth, etc). But then I found Rivendare, picked up some Kabooms along the way, decided on a pivot to Beasts as soon as I found one Goldrinn (nabbed him, rerolled HARD for Hydra, got Mama off a Triple). At that point I just full swapped to Beasts, but then ended up pitching most of them for the T6 stuff!

    I cannot wait for zillax to rotate. So tired of people pulling a win out of their ass with that card because you can’t trade into it without giving them massive life gains

    see i'm gonna miss zilliax though

    i honestly think it was a fairly balanced card if you excluded magnetic shenannies (at which point it can hit obscenely overpowered levels of healing, depending on the magnetize...)

    it was just a good anti-aggro card and it really helped stem the tide of aggressive decks without being too oppressive, i think. it saw play in almost every deck but not once did i ever think that card was too strong (again, barring magnetic bullshit...)

    cards like zilliax help keep aggro decks in check, because when there aren't enough anti-aggro tools we end up in a full aggro meta where control decks and other types of decks can't exist. i actually think cards like faceless corruptor are a MUCH bigger problem than zilliax ever was. that is a card that lets you easily kill off potentially three of your opponent's minions and then still possibly have two bodies leftover, as well as being able to drop it on cheap cards like lackeys and tokens to create a board swing.

    aggro decks absolutely need to be kept in check!

    in a hypothetical meta where there was no healing or rush minions or anything, you know what deck would run rampant without any counters?

    face hunter. nothin' but. but as it stands, one zilliax or even a lifedrinker or something can literally turn that match around.

    Why is no one playing Quest Warlock? It has so much heal and removal that it should have a healthy place in the meta now. Especially with the new cards added in.

    If it's not better than Control Warlock, then that's probably why you're not seeing it.

    I kind of wish I hadn’t disenchanted Supreme Archaeology. At the time it was so far away from meta as being a “safe disenchant” and I had put all my eggs in the quest shaman basket. Which is still fun to play, just not competitive.

  • fortyforty Registered User regular
    Errr, why are you playing Hakkar in a deck with drawing as a game plan?

    One of goals to win is to Arch Villain Rafaam your own blood (after a few ticks, depending on health.) and draw free legendaries while your opponent drowns in poison (or seagulls).

    Playing Tirion in BGs, I've got a pretty decent board nothing killer (a Triple Wrath Weaver that I got pretty early, had a few demon cycles but had to stop once I found my actual setup), Crowd Pleaser that I never once was able to pump (found no battlecries I could use? Not even Argus. Even picked up a Brann but found nothing.) which later became triple, a Triple Righteous Protector, Triple Selfless and I later picked up a Rivendare.. So just some big bois and Divine Shields for everyone. Later lucked my way into two Zapps! Alright, cool. We're in the money now. Smashed up Toki's Kangor before it could resummon anything.

    Top 3 and I run into someone with a board of giant fucking Murlocs with Brann and they all have Divine Shield/Poisonous.

    welp so much for that. enjoy your 1st place, Stitches. can't fucking do shit about that!

    I actually ran into a similar deck, and it just trucked me twice, and it sucked... until I'd vancliefed my cleaves up, and I had a 40/40 cleave and got real lucky and clipped the baron on my first attach and the mech r-sumon lady with my second cleave.

    Well, I did it. I lived the dream of double golden bomb with golden baron and Kangor's.

    4mtst6xjwrwk.jpg

    It wasn't even close. The only guy who even dealt me damage once I got rolling was Bartendo, who was doing the same thing I was doing and got better combat RNG. Most of the time I dealt like 20+ damage to my opponents. I had the opportunity for a golden ghastcoiler at one point, but passed it up in favor of Kangor's.

    edit: Not pictured: Taunt and divine shield on the leftmost two minions.

    Playing Sindragosa, have a good start. I realize everyone is playing Mechs, literally everyone (well, other than Tirion doing his own thing). I get some good murloc triples, power to T5 and........

    Get literally nothing for 3 rounds and die. Four triples fishing for a Megasaur. Nothing. Rolling like mad for Brann and buffs. Nothing. Over 3 rounds, I spent 21 gold rolling for any murloc buffs AS THE ONLY MURLOC PLAYER and get offered nothing beyond a few Seers that I pick up to try to stem the bleeding.

    This game sucks sometimes.

    i had a GREAT murloc start today with double Warleader, pushed to 3, rerolled FUCKING HARD for like a billion fucking turns and only found one single goddamn Coldlight Seer

    and not even a triple Warleader!

    It's kinda BS. Literally the next game, I'm Rafa'am and way ahead. I have another dream murlocs start, power level to T5 with a couple triples in my hand.

    This time, I spent 6 (SIX!!!) rounds desperately searching for a Brann and megasaur. Nothing, yet again. As the only murloc player once again, I spend over 40 gold rolling for the pieces because the odds are good.

    I barely scrape out a tie for 4th place because of the strength of my start but that is absolute BS. I made the right read, played it correctly, and just got brutalized by RNG.

    It feels worse because the games were back to back but the chances are insanely tiny. I guess I should be special because I found the tiny edge case?
