Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

oh **** trump made a good point about big-time racketeer.

First of all there's brann (free 6/6!)

but what about evolve O_O

your 1/1 becomes a 7 drop. And the ogre body is a 6 drop.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Feel like the biggest problem with evolve decks is that they are flood style decks that generate a lot of their value from evolving undercosted 6 mana minions and 1 mana tokens. But there are total disasters at both 2 mana (doomsayer) and 7 mana (acidmaw/geddon).

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

^^

You don't have to evolve into Doomsayer too often to make you give up on evolve.

Thing From Below is so OP that evolving it is kinda meh.

while trump loves these best case scenario value plays, the rest of the world still just tries to win on turn 8

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

So with the new Tribe discover cards, I think they would have been better off if, instead of hard-coding the tribe to the individual cards, they made each card a neutral card that simply says "Discover a card from your tribe", and then have some hover text that defines what your tribe is, or have the card dynamically list the classes that are part of your tribe based on your own class. Pigeonholing one particular card per tribe seems like a mistake.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

wtf just had a game where dark peddlar discovered rhonin versus me. How is that even possible I thought it was supposed to discover a 1 cost card and it was either a class card or neutral not another classes card?

edit: obv lost the game due to it also

what was your class?

were you druid?

or did he play monkey? Else he can't get rhonin. Dark can only get 1 mana cards.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

It was probably Dark Peddler discovering Shifter Zereus?

only explanation I can think of.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I always take Shifter for the top end value, even though most of the time you it gives you a Ragnaros on turn 6 or it gets discarded when you play Doomguard.

I think if they're going to have triclass cards they should make more cards that target opposing classes.

For instance, Warlock has cards that buff demons. There's only one non-Warlock card (Light's Champion) that targets demons.

The classes most diametrically opposite of Warlock are probably Priest and Paladin (makes sense from a lore perspective too). You could create a bunch of cards with text like "If opposing hero is a Priest or Paladin, ..."

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I decided to dust off my Rez priest since I've been sitting at 480+ wins for a long time. I'm climbing up the ladder @ Rank 15 with 498 wins currently. I feel like I'm in bizarro-world somehow.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I think Hunter guy is probably in the neighborhood of break even in a deck with a lot of beasts. Vanilla 3/3 for 2 is breakeven. When he whiffs you lose .5 mana of value, and when he hits you gain maybe .25 mana once you account for future stats being worth less than present stats.

Paladin guy is really bad. I don't think you're profiting with three hits. It's not that easy to have like six minions in hand.

Stolen Goods is really bad
