    Also, a heads up to you BG folks.

    They reduced Akazamzarak's secret pool this patch to 7 secrets, one of which is Ice Block. So you can opt to buy no minions, spam secrets, and then Ice Block every turn for 2nd place (or 1st if you can convince 1st place to concede out of boredom).

    Blizz wisely removed Akazamzarak himself from the hero pool temporarily, but you can still get his hero power off Finley and do the same thing.

    haha whoops

    I don't know that that'll be too hard to make happen. Every Warrior deck already runs a Pirate package and a Deathwing, and we still have a half dozen very playable mechs kicking around.

    Well, my suffering through 17 Wizard Duels games for the pack quests paid off. In my very last pack, I got Lord Barov, a playable legendary I had considered crafting before but didn't want to commit to.

    four or five games in, the new BG meta is roughly 1000x better and more fun. I am also much, much better at it.

    I am totally confident these assessments will stand the test of time, given the sample size.

    Things are still early, of course, but preliminary data seems to suggest that Queen Lightfangtoggle may have benefited the most from the buffs. She's most likely a tier 1 hero with her upgraded hero power. I imagine a solid strategy now would be to play her like Rafaam/Maiev and some of the other "prioritize 1 mana hero power every turn" heroes, delaying early levels, buying the best tribal minion you don't have yet, then power leveling to 5 or 6 with a hero power every turn once you've got a full board/menagerie, giving you a relatively safe climb to the power tiers.

    Unsure of the way to play galakrond but I am fairly sure it’s not spam one minion up to 6 but to get a couple of 3s and 4s ahead of curve.

    I imagine the safe way to play Galakrond is to just hero power the highest rank/worst minion (i.e., something high rank that you don't plan to buy) and occasionally get a good result from it that you either buy immediately or freeze if it was a leveling/out of gold turn.

    I imagine next patch Wagtoggle gets dropped to +1/1. I don't know why they didn't try that first, since +1/1 would obviously have been a buff from +2/0.

    The queen wagtoggle buff is great. It's another one of the great early game powers that lets you powerlevel and at least get 4th. You do get outscaled in the late game unless you get Brann or Lightfang, so that's something to keep in mind.

    Hmm wait that's a Demon itself, innit

    Another good card to pull from Sense Demons, wow. Oh, and it can be discovered off of Demonic Studies too, hmm!

    I kinda feel like they dropped the ball on good Demon support for Warlocks the past expac (Willow without any other big demons printed??? lmao) so here's hoping we get some good ones.

    I'd think a somewhat reliable tutor into a Board Clear On A Stick would be something Control Warlocks would want though, yeah?

    Something that you can play on curve even, since Sense Demons is 3 and this one is 4.

    depends on average minion health strictly speaking

    if it's NOT a board clear on a stick, if 2 is a Bad Number for the meta then, y'know, what's it worth, especially since it's competing with hellfire if 3 health is a more magic number

    Breath of the Infinite and Holy Nova are still doin' pretty well, I think, and those hit for 2.

    It does depend a lot, of course. I think one of the things with Hellfire is that, yeah, it's 3 damage, but it also hits your face, and that can often be... quite a detriment. Shadowflame is versatile, but often requires a minion to stick on board in advance, first.

    But 2 damage can still hit a lot of targets. Really good against Stealth Rogue, for example.

    It should be an Outcast effect.

  • fortyforty Registered User regular
    Outcast is kind of a shitty mechanic and I hope to see it on as few cards as possible.

    While I'm at it...

    Priests on ladder should be put into a queue that matches them only against other Priests.

    The next rotation will be the best one ever simply by removing Nozdormu the Timeless from Standard.
