    You can add more than 30 cards while editing a deck now. You can't play it with more than 30, of course.

    And a new Book of Heroes thing? A lot of random stuff tossed into this patch.

    The Book of Heroes content is above average for the mode too imo.

    Mine rogue is a highroll deck that can kill you on turn 4/5

    It also does the Maestra thing as well so you get to deal with the rush gnolls on 2

    I'm toying with this idea of a mill rogue, since you can draw that 4 Mana 7/7 Shellfish and trigger it's death rattle a bunch of times, together with a pirates package because that steals 5 cards and more.

    Not getting it to work yet, though.

    Thank god Diablo's in battlegrounds all week so we can retreat there for his warm embrace!

    Dear fucking god why would they bring Diablo back? Good reminder to me that the meta can always get worse.

    I believe he did get nerfed a little since last time, so that's something.


    Looks like Clownfish is finally an OP enough Murloc to push things over the edge and make Murloc Shaman a good deck. I don't recall having Flurgl in my collection, though, so I can't try it out without committing. :/

    Why does Hearthstone's clownfish have red eyes and teeth? Looks more Critters than Finding Nemo.

    Doing the Faelin story stuff, apparently Spreading Madness is bugged hardcore on the Kraken encounter. Once it picks a target, that's the only target it's going to hit. I also instantly won when it picked one of its own tentacles, killed it with the damage which resulted in it suddenly being hit for -100 and dying.

    Well ok I'll take it, that fight fucking sucks anyway.

    played against a mech mage who pulled 5 mecha sharks out of his ass

    if i were a card designer for team 5 i would implement a hard limit on # of specific cards you could discover per game

    a number of cards that target multiple things, or generate multiple bodies, now play the animation individually for each instance. in the above linked image, one can see Deck of Lunacy individually transforming each card

    Say you're playing quest priest....and you utter a "The light shall burn you!" before playing a shard every game.

    Would that make you a bad person?

    I haven't seen any of the new legendaries in play in Standard. Do people have a grudge against that octopus? Make a Shaman deck, plop down the octopus, play that +magic damage card Bioluminescence next turn and then ZAP 2 lightning bolts to the enemy's face.

    shaman can do that faster already

    A combo based on playing an expensive do nothing minion and hoping your opponent can't do anything for a turn is way too optimistic.

    I faced a ramp druid earlier that, on 20 mana (had the perfect wild growth into nourish into guff), played brann, Azshara for 2x tidestone, tutor, and mutanus to eat my ony and nellie

    Hell of a turn

    they really need to make mutanus 8. Not just for Brann but for that damn parrot as well.

    You have enough cards in a deck to give you 40 armor throughout a game and the dude that synergies with armor is bad? I protest! I will copy this deck and use Captain G out of spite!
