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

Yeah it's pretty legit. I somehow beat a paladin that played it in on turn 4 and then curved out well into tirion. Spreading plague is OP I guess.

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

I don't think I'd ever take Keseleth because my play style demands a lot of 2 drops, and in warlock it means no defile. But it's a better card overall than I thought it would be.

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

Managed 9 wins with the Keleseth deck. When it worked it was awesome, but I hard mulliganed for him and Flame Imp every matchup and think I only started with him in hand twice. I had so much removal in my deck that when I could get a dominant board it just snowballed wins hard.

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

this mode is unplayable for me right now. so many games should be auto-win and they plop down a bonemare on a 1/1 token and i lose.

so it forces a style of play to be super paranoid and make bad trades on the off chance your opponent has a game winning bonemare top deck

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

First 12er with Priest, also my first ever 12-0...feels good. No games were close, the deck was absurd. I drew Kazakus in at least half my games. Decent rewards too, 410g and a golden Free From Amber.

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

I have only played a week or so, but I think this is the best arena meta in a long while. I can actually play greedy.

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



been playing since the beta and this is my first 12 win, gave up on arena for a long time in the middle there though. lost game 1 and at 6-1 then rallied off 6 in a row. UI saved me big time the only chance i got to play it

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

This might be the most ridiculous deck I've ever drafted. Can't believe I lost 2 games but the druid was just too fast and the mage somehow out valued me.

What!? That's nuts. Craziest deck has to be the good ol 11 steeds someone drafted on the Chinese server.

I think i draft servant of kalimos on my first pick 50% of my runs due that stupid synergy clause.

Wish Arena was wild again. Feels like you see the same cards far too much.

Or at least have the option. A wild arena and a standard one. Guess there might not be a big enough player pool though.

I wouldn't care if there were wild and std., but if there's only one I'd prefer standard. I don't ever want to see minibots into musters or anything like that again.

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

I'd be happy with non-standard cards being significantly less common, but I do miss stuff like Mekengineer Thermaplugg or Blingtron or Elite Tauren Chieftain showing up occasionally.

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



Really good grinder mage deck. Got super lucky at win 11 where I had no way through a huge board and book gave me Pyro with opponent on 10 life for exact next turn lethal. Other than that most wins were pretty comprehensive.

2 packs, 440 gold. Also worth noting, not a hint of a Bonemare in this deck.

I don't know about being wild again but do we need the occurrence bonus on the last expansion to last so long?
it goes from one expansion to the next. For the first month or so i understand people want to play with the new cards but it quickly becomes stale after everybody learns what the new OP cards are.

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

I swear this game is rigged sometime. I was facing a warrior last night. He played the card that turns all of his remaining cards into a discover card. I pulled off a frozen crusher which I then switched its stats with a darkspeaker. Opponent ****ing discovers an execute the very next turn to kill of my 8/8 darkspeaker. Later on opponent played a discovered deathwing to clear my board. I had dark conviction and used it on the deathwing and then played some minions and BOK'd my stego the 4 mana 2/6 taunt, but decided not to kill the deathwing. One turn later again, opponent discovered Corpse Raiser and gave it to the deathwing which hits onto my BOK'd Stego to come back as a 12/12. Are you kidding me? I obviously proceeded to lose.

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

I kinda wish Blizzard could develop some sort of drafting rules. Like x-amount of spells and weapons offered at a minimum. I have been averaging between 5-7 wins on paladonger and have had two atrocious drafts where I got offered no weapons. One I went 3 and the other 1 win.
