    First, free stuff avail:

    Celebrate 10 years of Hearthstone with 10 rewards in 24 hours! From March 11, 10:00 a.m. (PDT) to March 12, 10:00 a.m. (PDT) you can earn the following drops to enjoy across Hearthstone modes, just for watching any Hearthstone stream:

    1st Drop: 1 Festival of Legends Card Pack and Crystal Justice Epic Battlegrounds Strike
    2nd Drop: 1 TITANS Card Pack and 1 Showdown in the Badlands Card Pack
    3rd Drop: 2 Tavern Tickets
    4th Drop: 2 Whizbang’s Workshop Card Packs
    5th Drop: 1 Golden Whizbang’s Workshop Card Pack and Harth Stonebrew Battlegrounds Bartender


    Second, two rule changes:

    [Hearthstone] Rules change! Temporary mana (such as from the Coin or Innervate) can now make you go above max mana. This applies to the base max mana of 10 and to any modified max mana, like if you’ve played Wildheart Guff or Audio Amplifier.
    [Hearthstone] Another rules change! You can now have multiple of the same Sigil, Objective, or Aura in play at the same time. Secrets, Quests, Questlines, Sidequests, and Battlegrounds effects that use the Secret Zone are still restricted to one instance in play at a time.

    They also changed the portraits for paladin dudes. There are now 3 (or 4) different types that appear randomly when you click the button, or summon them from cards.

    I think the patch notes said there were 6. Or maybe it was 6 new ones, plus the OG one?

    It's also currently bugged to treat them all as separate "cards" so the paladin cards that rez different paladin minions can just grab you three different silver hand champions, so probably wait a day or two before playing that archetype

    Another seemingly player benefiting change (it's Blizzard so there may be the curling of a monkey finger involved):
    Achievements Updates

    Unlike prior expansions, Showdown in the Badlands Achievements will not stop awarding XP with Patch 29.0 and will, instead, keep granting XP on the next Rewards Track! There will be fewer new Achievements in Whizbang’s Workshop, but each of those new Achievements will each grant more XP than main-set Achievements have typically given in the past.
    I've been asking/hoping for that since the first time they rotated out set achievement XP years ago. There was never a good reason for it, and it looks like they finally figured that out, so yay.

    Seems Battle.net is down for me. I've tried it on two different computers and they both say that The Update Agent went to Sleep. Attempting to Wake it up...

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no luck.

    Edit: Seems I had to clear the Program Cache and change the owner. Very odd that it happened on both of the computers.

    # To use this deck, copy it to your clipboard and create a new deck in Hearthstone

    I have that quest from when I last played 2 or more years ago about winning 5 games of the ranked. THe odd thing is people are easier from when I lasted played as I can take out players with just the worms from awakening tremors and the wild spirts as aggramar is the backup for that from the 3 games I have played?

    New Tavern Brawl this week - they show you 14 cards on the board without names and from the 20 name cards in your hand, you have to match them all up. There's like maybe a 2 or 3 minute timer going. Fail once and you start over.

    Apparently this was already in the game as one of those secret puzzles tied to an achievement. I hadn't done it yet, so it was an enjoyable memory/guessing challenge.

    Also, a 20 card hand is a mess!

    The current devs love combo-control, unfortunately. Renathal will leave standard soon at least but most recent metas feel like various flavors of heavy draw based control bashing against each other while one or two hyper-aggro decks try to sneak under them on occasion. Personally, I miss the days of Zoolock being relevant and fighting for board control with minions rather than swinging the board with ridiculous power plays from one or two cards, but nothing about the upcoming set makes me believe this is going to change anytime soon.

    I know the week of nerf reverts before a rotation is always a clusterfuck meta of random stuff you got sick of facing in the last year or two, but 40 health Renathal always felt particularly egregious. Almost every ladder match I've had so far this week starts off with "AHA!" and I just keep groaning.

    Hi Hearthstone Thread I went out to the gas station to buy some cigs and they were really good cigs so I kinda just stayed at the gas station for a while but they're all out of cigs so now I'm here

    Anyways remember when I said I was quitting Hearthstone, me too good times good times anyways turns out I was lying about that cause I ended up a) continuing to play Battlegrounds even though it was Pain and Suffering b) getting back into Constructed when Titans came out

    Why Titans??? Cause Plague DK looked hella cool and I had a ton of gold saved up and I ended up pulling Helya and I was like, okay yeah sure. So anyways I've been playing iterations of Plague DK since Titans and uhhhhhhhh it's all I HAVE been playing lmao. I ain't paying money for this shit anymore so I'm living that f2p life, which means my options are limited (I could probably make some other decks tbh but I'm having too much fun with Plague DK). Mostly it was just like, wow damn this is a deck that is completely different than how DK plays otherwise! And I was like, cool. Cause Blood is boring stall and healing and control and zzzzz, Unholy is braindead faceroll aggro, Frost is-- does Frost exist, is that even a deck. i think it's supposed to be like some kinda burn deck or something-- no one plays Frost ANYWAYS

    Plagues are neat

    And I ended up cooking a deck of my own creation

    Which I piloted to Legend this season

    So that's cool!! A deck of my own creation hit Legend. There's too many good cards that I like to be able to fit all of them into a 30 card deck so I went XTRA LARGE with Renathal (that unnerf is real nice too). I tweaked the shit out of it after the pre-Whizbang patch changes went in (Gnome Muncher being Runeless is amaaaaaazing). Gnomelia's crazy good (really good early Azerite Rat target too). My Etcetera pick is Dirty Rat like 80% of the time, it has won me many a game vs Warriors by pulling their Brann/Astalor/Odyn. Sunwell if I just need some spells. Rustrot Viper if it's too late for Dirty Rat or I need to get rid of an Ignis weapon

    (Yes I'm still playing Battlegrounds, Anomalies were even fuckin worse than Quests and I'm glad they've been banished to the Shadow Realm, Tavern Spells are pretty cool I like them they can stay, they brought Quests back though so hhhhhhhhhhhhh)

    wow though, me having fun with hearthstone again. imagine

    I played this morning with this for a game (whoops, retired some quests before the rotation) and in my first game I used ETC to Dirty Rat out a Sif.

    Gnomelia also helped with a board clear early. A+ deck, sad it will be irrelevant in about 4 hours. :(

    Just had probably my favorite ranked game of all time.

    To have some fun and kill time before the new expansion I put together the weirdest Rogue deck. Reno/Stonebrew. Rest of the deck is draw and search and stall. Idea is literally to just have fun and get Stonebrew early and see what happens.

    I come up against a Reno/Brann warrior.

    I play Reno on 8, then Stonebrew on 9 and it gives me the Shudderwock hand. :o

    I get the combo off (playing Chain Gang, Worldshaker, Zola, 2x Glacial Shard before) and just play endless Shudderwocks who also play Reno's battlecry so the rest of the game I can clear the board and leave my opponent with just a single space to play while also being frozen.

    Absolute BEST way to end the year, imo.

    All right, between rewards and gold I opened 60 packs and was able to make a decent hand buff death knight. I want to tweak it a little bit, but Sickly Grimewalker + Darkthorn Quilter is my new favorite combo.

    i was "fortunate" enough to open the new whizbang so i took him out for a spin today

    folks you're not going to believe this but those decks aren't very good!

    i think the worst might be the EVIL deck, it's like if you took one of the early lackey decks - you know, before all the Galakrond stuff - and then just stripped out all the spells and stuff that would help you control the board and replaced them with all the other class' lackey generation cards.

    i'm not against losing all the time with these decks, i'm totally okay with a deck being more about Fun than Winning, but it's really rare that you actually get to do something funny with these decks, you're just sweating the entire time with your back against the wall desperately trying to use draw or discover effects. i think they genuinely only work in a Whizbang V Whizbang format, which is a bummer. like i say i don't need winning games, i just need to feel like i had the opportunity to do funny things with the wacky card
