    I miss the good old expansions when 2/3 of legendaries were shit. It was definitely cheaper to build the good decks then.

    yeah thats what i am doing and it absolutely dismantles control decks

    kind of gets hand size issues and is reliant on tickatus not being an anchor in your deck

    i would actually hard mull for him if you know you are vs control

    Can it handle fast aggro?

    half your deck is anti aggro, see the list on previous page

    invoking galakrond into some shitty imps and plague of flamesing them clears a lot of stuff, you have mo'arg artificer into school spirits/soul shear/netherbreath, you have enough passive healing via soul shards and a few midrange taunts

    e: lmao look at all these soulless corporate buzzwords
    We have been listening to your feedback regarding the Rewards Track and it’s clear we missed the mark both in how we communicated and implemented the full functionality of this first version of our rewards system.

    We apologize for the confusion and disappointment we have caused.

    During the natural progression of the rewards cycle, our intention was, and still is, to give out extra XP over time through a variety of ways. The aim is to help players get through the Rewards Track, or catch-up if they join later in an expansion phase, ultimately ensuring players earn more rewards.

    We also didn’t provide any details for how events will link into and support the rewards system. We will be providing bonus XP for various activities at each seasonal event every expansion cycle, and any additional bonus events as needed, again with the aim of ensuring that our players obtain more rewards. Our failure to communicate these factors has led to incomplete projections, for which we apologize.

    In addition, you’ve provided us with a wealth of feedback, and we agree that the pack rewards at the end of the track don’t feel appropriate for the effort it takes to get them. We’re going to adjust these rewards in the later stages of the track, swapping six packs for a total of 1350 gold that players can spend as they see fit. If any players reach this milestone before we implement these changes, they will be retroactively compensated.

    Our goal for the Rewards Track continues to be that all Hearthstone players earn more gold and total rewards per expansion. We’ll continue to evaluate the impact of these changes, listen to your feedback, and iterate as needed until we get it right.

    We will stay true to our word and ensure that the system lives up to what we all believe Hearthstone deserves.

    Thank you,

    Ben Lee

    I saw Dog playing a more top heavy version with Twisting Nether and Strongman and he kept getting aggroed down. A more midrange list like Beasteh's probably handles that a lot better.
    Hey it's the one from that VS 30 decks list posted in the last thread! I'm not at all surprised it's doing well. Galakrond Warlock was already a refined deck that did decently but just fell out of favor in the refined Scholomance meta. I tended to have pretty good success when I played it. This version has basically been pre-refined and at least for now is likely feasting on unrefined jank. And now it's able to focus way more on control and survival since its end game is basically just 2 cards.

    here's an interesting OTK i just ran into
    Duplicate 2 Mo'arg Artificer with Felosophy
    Play Il'gynoth and make it go dormant with Maiev Shadowsong
    When Il'gynoth wakes up: play 4 Mo'arg Artificer and Felscream Blast on them
    that's 48 damage to the face, very difficult to disrupt

    That's a neat combo. I'm not sure how practical it is since it's a 7 card combo on DH (with a bit of setup that can be done in earlier turns before you have all the pieces). Also it requires an 8 mana turn where you do nothing but plop a 4/3 down and need to survive 2 more turns while half your hand is combo pieces you have to hold. Realistically you probably only need 3 Artificers in a lot of games since 24 damage will often be enough though.

  • KafkaAUKafkaAU Western AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Secret mage looks good in all these greedy decks. I got Sayge as one of my legendaries so thought I would try build a deck. Tried a few finishers, but surprisingly I found Mask of C'thun to be the most consistent. I only added the second one of those later on, as I didn't open one in my packs until I got a bit more down the path. I also think a second occult conjurer might be better than double game master, but I only opened one. Rigged Faire Game as well I only had one early on, but its so important vs control.

    74% win rate, although that tapered a bit past diamond 5.

    Hmmm.

    I mean, you do have a full week to do it, you can also hop over to Wild and probably get matched against worse players (or vice versa if you're a Wild player already, but)

    But um yeah honestly it does seem a Bit Much, and hard to do. I can imagine a lot of people legit won't be able to finish it?

    Even worse, I had one for play 30 Corrupted Cards. So I made a Druid deck to just spam corrupted cards in casual. Two games later I had only made 2/30 progress despite me knowing I had played WAY more than that.

    Turns out to complete the quest you have to play cards with the corrupt keyword without corrupting them

    Okay hey! Finally got to play some Standard today!

    I plaaaaayed Secret Mage (@KafkaAU's list, subbed out Polkelt for second Occultist since I feel that card has mega value), felt real good!!! Mask of C'Thun is WAY STRONGER THAN I THOUGHT IT'D BE. Umm, yowza. Secret Mage seems like a serious contender, plus there's tons of room for improvements and innovations in that list, I feel.

    I also playeddddd... I dunno what you'd call it. Clown Druid? Lmao. Yknow, Guardian Druid minus Guardian Animals package, slap in Strongmen and Clowns and Cenarion Ward. List is good!! I didn't have Yogg so I subbed for Ysera Unleashed, who is still good. The 7 mana (0 mana wink) Rush Owl is pretty goddamn good, ngl. Clowns feels POWERFUL when you get it off. Goddamn. Honestly I feel like that deck should just be called "Survival Druid" since that spell seems to be the centerpiece of the deck buuuuut...

    Last deck I played was Evolve Shaman. Turns out Revolve and the 2/2 weapon tutor fucking makes that deck legit as all get-out now. You've got so many combos you can pull off between Boggspine Knucks and Mutate and Revolve. It runs Derailed Coaster, which is also another fun (effective) combo.

    Oh, and I gave Pure Dude Paladin a swing. That list seems effective. Boy, those new Dude cards are good.

    I ran up against.... Aggro Shaman (with the new Windfury legendary, and Whack-A-Gnoll Hammer, that deck seems scary), buncha Mages (including a C'Thun Secret Mage???), Soul DHs (FUCK BLADED LADY), Hunters of various flavors (a really slow one that ran Darkmoon Tonks + Jewel of N'Zoth; scary to play against!!) and I even got Tickatus'd.

    Lots of real interesting stuff though! New cards are fun and powerful.

    I'm betting on my life that Tickatus and Y'Shaarj get nerfed though.

    HEY KNOW WHAT'S BULLSHIT THOUGH, DEVOVLVING MISSILES ON A CORRUPTED STRONGMAN CREATES A GODDAMN 0 MANA MINION CUZ IT COSTS 0 MANA AAAAAAAAAAAA
