    I got three packs today from the special event. If I don't open these packs and keep them until the next mini set launches, the packs should contain nothing but new mini cards, right?
    What Alphagaia said. But to be clear, they won't only be mini-set cards unless you have every card of a rarity from the base set. Presumably that will be the case for any commons/rares you get in the packs, but if you don't have every epic/legendary from the set, any of those opened are still likely to be from the base set.

    So, what beats Highlander Warrior right now? It's all I'm up against right now in dumpster Legend.

    Civics is not a consumer product that you can ignore because you don’t like the options presented.

    You're looking for the aggro of painlock or hunter. It's still a close matchup though. The patch was overall a buff for Warrior despite the attempted nerfs, because it just hit the decks that actually countered it so much harder.

    36-4 Plat 4. I can't do anything to Paladins due to multiple lifesteals and Death Knights, because, well, Death Knights. Got further than I thought, but unless I were to get repeated streaks of no Lifesteal Paladins or Plague Death Knights I'm not going to advance much further. I -might- get to Diamond this month. Hopefully I'll get a couple extra stars to start nearer to the top.

    Lmao this is awful. I can't believe Warrior is just plain stronger now. Hell even if you catch their Brann with Dirty Rat, guess what: they still got Reno. they still got Boomboss. they still got Azurite Ox. they still got Inventor Boom. they still got Ignis.

    maybe you get past all of those things. somehow. by some miracle-- OOPS PHOTOGRAPHER FIZZLEEEEE LOLLL


    edit: and then there's that really fun variation with Audio Amplifier that can do Boomboss+Zola at 11 Mana :^)

    Since nature shaman is dead and i got Plush Crush, I modified the suggested beast hunter deck and am currently refining it. Seems to have a lot of blowout potential so far. Got a few t3 concedes already :-). I must admit, Feels great to have a balls to the walls aggro deck again.

    Goal is to buff the first cow to 4/4 and then play the "trigger a friendly minions deathrattle twice" minion for early tempo. Which also works great on the "deal 7 dmg to random enemy" dino. Or you trigger the Snek and shit snowballs like whoah. And a buffed Plush Crush is a totally out of left field board clear with an 8/8 with charge on the backswing for most opponents haha

    Yeah I've been trying in vain to ladder up with my UUB Plague DK deck and it's been. A Struggle. It does win vs quite a few decks that aren't Warrior! Sometimes! My list has enough healing and board clear and shit that it *can* work but it's also entirely dependent on your opponent drawing plagues. I won vs a Warrior one (1) time just cause I had gotten very lucky in dumping all my plagues in +extra plagues from discovers pretty early, as well as going full aggro mode with my early game minions BUT

    yeah ultimately it requires your opponent actually chain-drawing the damn things

    Since I'm not running Excavate anymore, that's entirely my wincon now. Well, that and Horseman, that's the other half of the wincon (3 damage to face each turn and INFINITE VALUE is pretty good). And heck vs other decks? Yeah it can work. But I also dropped from Diamond 3 to Diamond 5 attempting to play it lol

    I'll post my list later and maybe folks can help me think of refinements for it. Unless it's just doomed by this meta lmao. I can win vs Hunter tho!! Threads of Despair, Tomb Traitor, and Hollow Hound are all really fuckin good cards. And a few other decks. Sometimes.......

    I’ve been running a buff DK with modest results. Yesterday’s highlight was dropping Yelling Yodeler on a buffed Reska to steal Magtheridon and another demon, and then rushing into a third thing to clear the board. DH immediately concedes the following turn.

    I think I encountered a bug, or at least an interaction with quests that doesn't make sense.

    So quests reset today, as per usual. Which mean's I've got my weekly "Win 10 ranked games" and "Win X games in Battlegrounds, etc..." I usually reject the second one because I play those other modes rarely if ever. When I did so, it rerolled that quest AND my "Win 10 games..." and duplicated the new quest. Pretty irritating.

    It worked. I had logged right after the bug occurred, and logged back in maybe an hour ago. Just visual. Phew, thanks!

    It’s supposed to prevent people from filling their decks with 2x cards and then milling or turbo drawing to eliminate those and get the benefits of a singleton deck. I understand the logic, but yeah it has countered plague decks as a result. Which in and of itself, doesn’t bother me. Those decks are still fine, just no longer hard counters.

    The real problem is Brann itself. It shouldn’t exist, and should be relegated to wild.

    Brann is also a weird case since repeatedly playing him doesn’t stack, unlike the rest of the Highlander/reno/singleton cards where you can get the effect over and over.

    I want to make a new deck that is centered around Thunderbringer, the horse that draws an Elemental and a Beast when it croaks. But which class would make best use of Beasts and Elementals that don't have battlecries? Shaman and Walking Mountain? Hunter and Death Knight has the yodeler but you don't want your side of the board to be too full of minions.

    whiiiiiich I mean I think it's pretty good, but, I dunno, maybe there's some room for refinements... Earlier versions I had it much more anti-aggro focused (I was running Rainbow Seamstress for example) but since there's a surge of slower decks lately I've been adding in more value stuff instead. I can generally do pretty well on average but it's just like, oops here's Warrior to rain on my parade. But it's Warrior, so, I don't think there's any getting around that.

    Oh, it's shit all right. 10 standard wins is… achievable, but not great. 10 other wins is just fat chance; always re-roll that one.

    100%. If you enjoy the game by all means keep going but it’s pretty clear that the strategy going forward is to hamper f2p (or “minimal” p2p) progress.
