    I finally completed one of my goals: Legend with every class at least once. Druid was the last one, and Aggro Druid dragged me across the line. It is, IMO, the second least skill intensive deck in the Wild meta right now, behind only Big Priest. But hey, it wins games, and it’s cheap to craft. Gidra could easily be replaced by a Savage Roar.

    Welp, first time 1st place with C'thun.

    You really do need to jam HP every single turn. And hope you get good HP targets like Div Shields or Cleaves.

    I had that Dragonspawn Lieutenant since turn 1, hmmmm~

    Evolve should be silenceable. Silence the evolved minion and it reverts to original version, except silenced.

    Not a perfect fix but it would open up more avenues of counterplay given the low base stats of minions in evolve shaman.

    Yeah, I've seen streamers even HP turn 1 and just take the 2-3 damage instead.

    Same. It obviously works best if you can get one of the token minions to show up as your first purchase so you can buy + hero power turn 2. I'm thinking if you don't get a token to freeze on your two turn 1 rolls or show up in the turn 2 roll then maybe you just say fuck it and level on 2 and hope to be able to +2/2 a T2 minion on turn 3?

    When I played him I literally HPd every turn, so I did the maiev economy and leveled to tier 2 on 6 gold. It worked fine but that's anecdotal.

    You should be able to level to T2 on the 5 gold turn too. Just level hero power.

    Miniset is on January 21st.
    You can open the new cards via packs or buy a $15/2000 gold bundle which will give you 1 copy of each legendary and 2 copies of everything else in the miniset (very surprised they're letting us buy this with gold).
    Mechanics will include Spellburst and dual-class cards (interesting to see them return to keywords from past sets when they've been reluctant in the past).
    Battlegrounds and Duels updates on the same day.

    It’s basically the adventure mode without the single player content. Did the mention how many cards that includes?

    Regardless, it’s still bullshit and over costed.

    I think they saw that everyone was hoarding their gold and packs, waiting for the new expac. Their analytics likely suggested this was a good way to bleed everyone of their gold, and get them to open packs.

    Wow, that's a ridiculously short lead time from announcement to release. Hell, it hasn't even been announced yet, apparently, since the article was taken down so must have been leaked early?

    Being able to buy the full set for one price is a complete shocker and quite commendable. I guess I can open up the small pile of packs I've been saving now? Maybe I'll wait until the full bundle thing is officially available though. Shouldn't be long now.

    Guess they really took all that fuckin' feedback to heart huh

    Yknow, fuck me, it'd be nice if they would've SAID SOMETHING instead of just shadowdropping "oh yeah btw you can pay a sum of gold to unlock everything in the set", seriously. Seriously??

    Like, hey, don't get me wrong. I appreciate it. It's the right move! But man it would've avoided so much strife if they had just, lead with this. ....But the tinfoil hat in me is thinking they only just recently came up with this in response to the earlier Rewards Track rioting, yknow? So, hey. I'll take it still. That's a nice thing, on their part. Even if I've quit Constructed, I mean, it's good to see they're actually taking this feedback seriously and not just dumping it in the garbage.

    You should wait to open packs til after the miniset comes out; you'll be able to get dupes and dust em and it'll be worth more dust. Well, either that or it'll mean getting more stuff from the base Darkmoon Faire set (if you haven't gotten everything), but... I suppose it doesn't quite matter either way then, huh?

    Nice, not sure what to do. I've got 9,000 gold saved up, and 20 unopened packs.

    Guess it depends on how good the new cards are, since I guess we can also create the new cards from dust?

    Even if every card ended up being useless, the pure dust value you'll be getting for 2,000 gold is likely going to be significantly higher than the expected dust value of buying 20 packs outright, assuming a similar card distribution to other adventures. For example, the disenchant value of all the cards in Galakrond's Awakening is about 3,000 dust.

    Realistically, like with every adventure set, at least one legendary will be playable or better, so if you play constructed with any regularity it seems like it would be folly not to buy the bundle with gold (or $, if that's your thing).

    You, too, can get this for the low low price of losing ~2000 MMR!!! THAT'S RIGHT. GET YOURS TODAY.

    fortunately i'm at a point where i don't really care about losing MMR, though. i'd rather play underpowered/fun heroes or try to go for cheevos than playing the same old boring OP ones, yknow?

    Once I realized I could break even on MMR around 9k even when being a greedy asshole, my strategy became play for fun and everything will be fine.

    Safe to say the boggspine nerf was actually a very smart one, then!

    Any reason you went with novice engineer over questing adventurer?

    I'd guess because Novice Engineer draws a card and advances the Battlecry quest (where it becomes 2 mana, draw 2).

    How to win against Druid / Mage / Rogue with Quest Shaman?
    Play Ogremancer turn 3.
    This was hilarious.

    I meant questing explorer which draws a card is a 2/3 and advances the quest.

    I think the issue is that Questing becomes a River Croc after you complete the quest. It's amazing if you draw it early, but not being able to cycle with it as a later game draw really hurts.

    The best card in Hearthstone is your credit card.
    The lie of the year.

    Hearthstone is very confused.

    Fair, but on curve questing is the best 2 mana card to play.

    I run 2 of them on all of my quest decks.

    Yeah, this. The Shaman Quest can be done so quickly that Questing just becomes a dead draw to often, while my other draws double up.

    Seeing how much of the deck can be played early, the upside of having a 2/3 early is diminished as well. This deck needs the draw, not the body.
