    Turns out ridiculously strong Dungeon Run treasure cards are pretty good in Standard! Who knew!?

    That card is a giga highroll for ramp druid and might as well have the druid border instead of mage

    sometimes the only good pick off of outcast studies is the girl that can shuffle something from their hand into their deck, but on the plus side it's always hilarious when you do it to their quest reward

    I've had some back to back Warlocks bring back Ticketus and that new fatigue card of theirs doubled with Tasmin.

    Just don't play kazakusan afterwards. You'll regret it.

    Battlegrounds, I picked Finley and chose Tickatus. I got a Brann and later a golden Brann. So my second and third buddy both gave me golden Tickatus buddies (i.e. 6 darkmoon prizes each). The game was just ridiculous. I smashed everyone and still had a golden ticket collector buddy in hand at the end of the game. I just couldn't manage to do everything I wanted in the turns I had until everyone was dead.

    Been playing standard for the first time in like a year.

    slapped together this cheapskate spymaster deck. It's tearing up through bronze (edit: Silver by now) like nobodies business. I't really fun and nobody knows what the cards i get do it seems. They never play around the megasap for instance.

    I still had a 27% chance to die in my final fight, because reborn maexxnas + selfless is the only viable endgame comp.

    I bet Team 5 was like "oh neat, Kazakusan is a cool build-around that will challenge players to create Dragon-only decks!"

    "what if we tossed it in every deck as the only Dragon and used it like Elysiana"

    How does that work? From the card text I would've thought the battlecry would only activate if the stated condition is met, making it just an 8 gem 8/8 dragon body in a normal deck.

    Like how the highlander cards activate when you're out of cards, you don't have to meet the condition, just not not meet the condition.

    Oh, of course. I was thinking it'd run a check against what the deck was at the start, not what's remaining when you play it.

    I can't get to Diamond 5 with Deathrattle Priest. Win 2, lose 2, win 2, lose 2.

    The new cards should make Rogue a strong Deathrattle deck if I can figure out what the meta is supposed to be.

    It's also worth noting that spells, weapons, and hero cards are not minions, so you can have only those in your deck and also activate Kazakusan.

    Eh? It's only in combat, so it's not that big a deal. It's generally not a very good buddy, usually just giving you a little tempo in the midgame by buffing up a taunt a bit. Occasionally it can give you a decently strong utility minion for a few matches by golding up a Khadgar or a Crocolisk, but eh. Reno was maybe an average hero before buddies and I would say he got a subpar buddy so he's probably worse off than he was pre-buddies.

    The current battlegrounds meta is stupid. It’s entirely focused on snowballing. It’s either “get lucky with tier 1 minions, win fights, get buddy faster, then power spike early to victory” or “get unlucky with tier 1 minions, lose fights, get buddy slowly, then power spike too late and die.”

    Get a bad hero? Barely worth playing. Miss on your triple? Game over.

    It’s one of the dumber metas that has existed. Anytime the endgame is purely poison, it means they fucked up stat scaling (and this time, and fucking how).

    i can't emphasize enough how much i've won based purely on staying in the first few tiers with a buddy and then just getting what's his face, the pirate that loves to see goldens

    hearthstone battlegrounds really just don't patch frequently enough compared to other autobattlers

    lol i love completing the third quest round, slapping down the 5 mana 7/7 and give it +2 attack and stealth immediately. If they have no AOE for 7 that's 9 damage staring them in the face. So out comes the taunt, but they just don't know i get a 1 mana sap as well.

    giving a stealthed minion +9 with shadowstepped ashtongueslayers (+3 attack and stealth buffers) is also hilarious. and the 1 mana 3/2 weapon is insane as well.

    god i love spy gizmo's
