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

I just made a horrible mistake.
I'm hunter his mage his on 5 health I'm on 25 he has 3/2 - 4/6(cant be targeted) 1/1 - 1/1 - 4/5 on board and I have a 2/1 on board and only an explosive shot in my hand but because I'm an idiot I don't wont to wast the burst on a 1/1 so I hit his face with my 2/1 and hero ability to leave him on 1 health. Of course he has 2 fire balls in hand for 25 points of damage.
I'm going to remember that for a while.

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

Faced an opponent yesterday who dropped Sneed's Old Shredder back to back on turns 7 (w coin) and 8. I did not sap it, he actually managed to draft 2 Sneeds in one arena run, and got them both in his hand by turn 8

I think that qualifies as "That guy's deck is craaaazy" ^^

1st pick in a shaman draft you pick rockbiter. Second pick is between sea giant, earth elemental and doomhammer. What do you pick?

I go Doomhammer here. It's a solid weapon on it's own, but synergises really well with Rockbiter Weapon. I know it's only 2 cards in, but that's the card I'd take.

I might take sea giant. Tough decision between that and doomhammer for me.

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

pretty sure the right answer is earth elemtal.
doom hammer is great especially with a rockbiter but you propably wont be able to combo them anyway because you use the rockbiter as removal. the meta in the arena is quite fast recently so you cant really safe the rockbiter and the value of the doom hammer in a deck in which you would use it as removal goes down a lot.
the sea giant does synergize well with the shaman hero ability and even in classes that do not spawn minnions you will probably still find a spot to drop it but a 7/8 for 5 is ****ing nutter butters

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

Just had my first 0-3. Devastating. Deck didn't look that bad but got overrun by a Paladin, lost a tough mirror in the late game, and then ran into a Druid with turn 6/7/8 Ironbark/War/Claw (this deck has no answers for big minions nevermind that). Not sure if it was just bad draw or what but this deck looks like it should curve out and really never did, lots of awkward turns with questionable mana efficiency. I took every 2 drop that was offered to me and still didn't have a turn two play for two of the games. Even after I made the deck it felt like I didn't have a lot of 2s, didn't have a lot of 3s, didn't have a lot of 4s, didn't have any late game, didn't have any removal, didn't have any threats, didn't have any taunt, which is odd because it does in fact have 30 cards... seems like if this deck came out right it had a really good chance to steamroll in the mid game but no such luck.

Also add Spellbreaker to the list of cards I hate running into, 2x Velens is overrated when your opponent always has silence.

Also, why does Twilight Drake get so much love in the arena? Feel like the hands are never full and you're much more likely to topdeck it for a 4/1 or best case play it as a 4/4 or 4/5 from your opening hand.

For reference...

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

at 5-0 with a priest deck that lacks 4 drops alltogether basicly but is pretty good beside that and within those 5 games rag was dropped against me twice.
i am seeing the arena swarmed by legendarys lately.

That's confident aren't you concerned about the lack of removal or AOE?

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

deck doesn't seem that insane to me. the 2 legendarys with loh is obv incredible, but you have some very weak picks in there, no aoe, and only 1 weapon.

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

bobbo joined me when I was 5-0

very good deck


picked shredder over consecration in the draft, no regrets

also been saying this for a while but light's justice is absolutely amazing and very underrated. so many games i've been below 20 hp by turn 5 just by hitting into everything with it but the tempo lead/card advantage is well worth it
