Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Miracle sounds fun, might have to blow some of that sweet free dust I got.

Which lists are you guys running?

****. Just tried out Newton's aggro murloc list and it's both strong as **** and extremely cancerous. Could definitely see people (hunter's at least) running hungry crab in the next week or so.

Yeah. I get the feeling murlocs are the new overlords. Played earlier and heard MRLRLRLRLLRLRLRLGLGLGLLLGLLG about 6/10 games.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I think this is my favorite expansion ever. So much i want to try out still and it doesn't feel like if you go a little out of the meta you'd get totally eaten alive. A stark contrast to MSG.

my current mage hating version:

Backstab x 2
Counterfeit Coin x 2
Preparation x 2
Cold Blood
Hallucination x 2
Patches the Pirate
Southsea Deckhand
Swashburglar x 2
Bloodmage Thalnos
Eviscerate x 2
Razorpetal Lasher
Sap
Edwin VanCleef
Fan of Knives x 2
Shaku, the Collector
Eater of Secrets
Sherazin, Corpse Flower
Vilespine Slayer x 2
Gadgetzan Auctioneer x 2
Arcane Giant x 2

shaku probably needs to go but he makes the game so much more fun to me so i'm stubbornly keeping him til PW forces me to put in a SI agent or something. Secret eater has won me 5 straight games vs mages, I feel so bad but it feels so good

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

its a pretty unique occurance that the meta doesnt seem very defined 2 weeks in.

Usually takes like 5 days for 90% of decks throughout an expansion

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I decided to roll up a murloc pally to see what the fuss is about

long story short, 3 warrior and 2 priest opponents later (0-5) I decided to free up a deck slot so bye bye murloc pally

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Not much of a fan of this xpac, so far, to be honest. Feels like just one big RNG fest and already facing the same 2-3 decks over and over again.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Anyone playing lyra priest not have northshire cleric in the deck? I just feel like I never ever need her but not sure what to replace her with. I already cut one for mass dispel but I really don't think I need even that

Free from amber is straight up busted in arena. I had 3 and did very dirty things to a few people. Sadly the rest of my deck wasn't so hot. Only got 5 wins. But I never thought the funnest thing I'd play in arena is priest lol.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

^^couldn't agree more. What the game has benefitted from is cards that have been around for 2 years rotating out, plus the Hall of Fame changes. Hearthstone should now essentially be on a 3-rotation set and every new year it will change the game significantly and should be for the better, since they can plan around it now.

It feelsbadman when you mimic pod Eater of Secrets vs. taunt warrior. But those wins when you eat an ice block feel amazing.
