Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

If anyone is feeling a bit bored of HS ladder right now, and fancies playing something a bit off meta, I've reached legend this month (first time in a long time) with a combination of these two decks. Kingsbane Mill Rogue and OTK Lynessa Paladin.

Played against kingsbane mill rogue the other day, thought it was a fun looking deck. Just squeaked a win with Cubelock, but it was close.

Very refreshing after hearing the monotone of "Raza is best" from every streamer. I could never figure out why the pro opinion strays so far from the stats. Sure, people suck and its a hard deck to pilot, but the disparity in results is too great to be explained simply by that. Razas winrate doesn't rise at legend, which should be telling. Even though the average legend player isn't that great, they should be able to extract more value from it than rank 25-5, right?

I really think that the streamers are overvaluing Raza because its a "thinking man's deck", and it happens to crush most of the other "thinking man decks". Yes, it is super strong, but its inherently less consistent than rougue because of the singleton nature of it, and it has plenty of losses where either combo card is in the bottom 5-10. It has its omegalul draw of raza on 5, anduin on 8, but rogue has keleseth on 2 and that is much more likely to happen.
Agreed with this. I’d really like to see a win rate breakdown of tempo rogue between prince/no prince/prince + shadowstep on 2. I honestly would not be surprised if all 3 were positive win rates, with prince + shadowstep being a win rate over 80%. Which is absolutely absurd for something decided at the mulligan.

But again, so much of keleseth’s power is actually patches. **** that card to infinity.

Toast said that playing Keleseth on 2 ups your chances to win the game by 10%.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

can anyone explain to me what is the win condition of, uh, weasel priest? You just shuffle a bunch of weasels into your opponent's deck, cant see how that wins you any game.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

The main deck it targets is Raza priest, and it destroys the deck's win condition by deactivating Raza. Versus tempo decks, it tries to hang on with small deathrattle minions until psychic scream, then drop Amara to heal to 40. From then on, your opponent is running a deck that doesnt have much, if any, card draw, so he's topdecking, and top decking weasels. You then grind out the game with Anduin DK & nzoth.
