So is Hunter. The three cost targetable freezing trap and the infinite wolf are superpowered

I haven't played arena in forever but these threads are pretty dead, just ask in the main Hearthstone thread.

Re: This Guy's Deck is Crazzzzy (Arena Banter)

Best class is Warlock. Rogue was nerfed a few days ago - it had nearly a 60% winrate, so it was beyond busted (due to EVIL Miscreant). Warrior is back to being dumpster tier.

Here's a catch-all strat currently: The more lackeys you have in your deck, the more wins you'll get.

On another note, fellow 2+2er forthelulz and I have been grinding arena hard, and have finished in the top 25 the past few months. We average around 7.5 wins, the #1 finish in a given month squeezes beyond 9 (which is obviously terrific, but also super lucky).

Re: This Guy's Deck is Crazzzzy (Arena Banter)

Also, Hunter is currently quite strong, which is unusual since it normally is kinda weak, but it is the only class with a good matchup vs warlock.

These cards are busted ATM:
1 - Chow. It's back in rotation but is always vs the top rated echelon of cards, so it's hard to acquire.
2 - Hogsteed. This is the best 2 drop in the game, you generally get offered a bunch, and should almost always take it.
3 - Faceless Rager. Very strong card!

5 - Dalaran Crusader. Strongest drop you can make on 5.
6 - Eccentric Scribe. Take it over nearly anything

Re: This Guy's Deck is Crazzzzy (Arena Banter)

Thanks for the quick summary, Bobbo. Since you're going over strong neutral minions, what is your opinion on Proud Defender? And would you say that Haunted Creeper is the second best 2-drop?

I hope that those lackeys will be banned from arena soon, but that's probably not gonna happen.

Re: This Guy's Deck is Crazzzzy (Arena Banter)

those 2 minions are tier 1 for sure. proud defender is way more polarized because from ahead it's just a stegadon or w/e, which was a below average 4 drop. but it has its upside.

creeper is better when you have token synergy or the like, i like taking them in most classes when you need a ping or can buff the 1/1 aftermath or can sac a 1/1 (like in warlock with the lackey card)

its funny, its a card that used to be OP way back in naxx, and now its just like, sure, it's decent/good.
