I think Tidecaller into Rockpool is very fun to play Kappa

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I do think warrior just can crush a lot of aggro though.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I don’t play even warrior or odd, but quest is one mana so isn’t it odd warrior you want to craft? My advice is to wait a week or two unless you have a lot of dust burning in your account and to wait to see how the meta settles down before crafting anything new. I’ve made that mistake and have cards I definitely regret crafting.

Odd warrior without quest will be the best deck

I queued up against a quest rogue that did his whole solitaire and then tried to charge a 4/4 into my fire ele, delayed a second and conceded

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

At least there are some other AOEs that are much more effective against QR like Flamestrike. Not sure if FS will come back to the meta. It still owns the control matchup but it'll be even less effective vs aggro which should be a huge part of the new meta with cubelock dying out.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Will see how the meta shapes right after the nerf.

But looking at Witchwood, the biggest change really wasn't too much in the new cards but the cards that left.

Druid got 3 cards that are played: Druid of the Scythe, Howl, Witching Hour.
Hunter for the most part got 0 new cards that are played in constructed.
Mage got one new card Cinderstorm and some people play Arcane Keysmith.
Pally got no new cards that are played in constructed.
Priest got Hymn and some people play squashling. Matriach is playable but too slow.
Rogue got no new cards that regularly played but I've played Blink Fox/Tess but overall it sucks ass.
SHaman got Eel, Witch and Shudder.
Warlock got no new cards except the ever powerful Lord Godfrey.
Warrior plays crier, crowley, warpath in some decks.

Neutral-Scalehide is a great card along with Hench-Clan Thug, Phantom Militia, Voodoo Doll are played as well as lifedrinker and scaleworm. Rotten Applebaum is played in a few control decks, Piper is played in control mage. Genn and Baku are meta defining but only for a few classes.

There are 12 echo cards including Crowskin and only 3 are played so currently Echo sucks. Arguably the best echo card, Unstable Evolution isn't even labeled Echo.

The meta defining cards are the odd/evens which isn't a shock. 23 of the 135 cards are currently playable in meta decks which is pretty meh. Looks like Shaman should be back with the nerfs, will see what else got helped by the big changes.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

14 games at rank 3/2 and no warlock so far. 6 pala, 1 hunter, 1 shaman, 4 druid, 2 rogue. 10-4 with even shaman, feels very powerful especially when you get an early hagatha value machine going. not quite wild power level obviously.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Quest rogue nerf is definitely effective. I just fatigued one with Even Tempo Warlock (no demons). Granted he wasn't a great player, but most players aren't.

Combo Druid is super fun and seems decent. Don't think it can really beat tempo mage though
