    Yo wtf, in Duels why does Turalyon have a passive "your silver hand recruits get +2/+2 for the rest of the game" spell? That's so much comically stronger than every other class signature card I've seen. Like literally you don't need to cast another card after that to win games.

    Edit: Aaaaand just played against the alternate Stalina hero power where she just hits you for 4-10 damage with her face every turn. This mode isn't remotely balanced enough to be something you can buy into.

    Yeah I noped out of duels immediately

    Having it be a paid arena style entry with that level of imbalance is a total joke

    oh okay warlock in Duels has a unique unit that gets +2/+2 for every card you've discarded, returns to hand if discarded, and has rush and lifesteal

    this is fine until it's noted that it's a demon so you Fel-osophy it, and also they had a card that turned their whole hand into a minion

    so by turn 8 their hand was 7 40/40 rush lifesteals

    What is best in life?

    To play Oh My Yogg, to see your opponent have a C’thun spell instead give your minion +8/+8, and to hear the lamentations of their women.

    i feel like arena is going to die as a format

    you know how before you could grind some wins/a quest to get gold for entry?

    now a casual player will be able to do one run a week if they go 3/4 wins which is the average

    how

    I still think it is a superior format to Arena, fitting for Hearthstone's fundamental style of play.

    As I said before, Duels lives or dies by active and careful balancing because it is really easy to create some mega-bullshit. So on the one hand, current Team 5 has a bad track record balancing stuff out of the gate. On the other, they are very responsive to community commentary so I would be surprised if truly bullshit stuff isn't resolved in a week or two.

    I want the format to succeed. Everyone's so cynical about Hearthstone these days but it's still a good game, and I honestly appreciate that there are three different ways to play it, even though I only prefer one right now--two if they get Duels straightened out.

    Have you ever figured out exactly what rank a deck is? Coming into this project, I thought this would be lucky to be any better than a Bronze 10 deck. But it wasn't! It kept up about a 60% winrate through all of Bronze and low Silver, before slowly grinding to a 50% winrate at the border of Silver 2-3. The more I play with this deck, the more I rank up to Silver 2 and rank down to Silver 3. This is the platonic Silver 2.5 deck.

    It's a tricky deck because of all the overload options, but once you get it down it's so good

    Once the weapon hate kicks in it's probably dead in the water, but for now it's t7-8 blowouts on tha daily.

    Do mana-discounted cards in hand trigger corrupt cards? Like fungus dude discounting a 10 mana minion to 5 mana - playing that 5 mana card would still trigger your corrupted clowns, right? Or what if fungus dude discounts your 9 mana clown to 4 mana? Any 5 mana card would trigger it then?

    I think no to the first case, yes to the second. Playing a discounted card should not trigger Corrupt cards if it's no longer more expensive than them.

    For whatever reason, though Hearthstone gave me the achievement for Standard Legend, it didn’t give me the achievement for Wild Legend. That has been rectified via Odd Paladin. The climb was pretty quick and easy. Oh My Yogg may be the best Hearthstone card ever, and it was the MVP for a lot of games. I had one Competitive Spirit in the deck, and I kept waffling over whether to take it out. I never remember to do it though. My final boss game was against Reno Priest. I won when they calculated my lethal as it was on board, and then Competitive Spirit gave me exact lethal.

    But seriously, Oh My Yogg may be the greatest card ever printed for any card game. I love it.

    OK, I love OG Yogg and Tess more. But Oh My Yogg is amazing.

    I don't know if Demon Zoolock is any good, but I can tell you that Demon Zoolock getting astronomically improbably lucky draws is good. Doing 45 damage to a Zoo deck and not winning is pretty absurd.

    I have no idea about Standard. In Wild though, it’s incredibly disruptive. And the random results can be delightful. Like an aggro Druid trying to cast Power of the Wild and getting Defile instead. Or a Priest trying to Mass Hysteria and getting Deck of Wonders. Or a Mage trying to cast Flame Ward and getting Treachery. Or a Hunter trying to cast Animal Companion and getting Ice Block.

    OK, that last one sucked. But still!
