Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I've hit dad legend four months in a row now and I'm pretty happy with that. I can't imagine completing the grind to legend, even once. Kudos to those of you who hit it regularly

i know the deck sucks and i know i've posted this already, but i take so much joy in roping shudderwock (the obnoxious grumble version) decks. if i'm playing an aggro deck then sure, just crush em, but control, i'll make the game as long as possible which is what they want anyway, right?

The best is when you do this and they have shudder like bottom 5 or bottom 3 and then you get death grip off Lich King and win. I've had this happen 2 or 3 times.

I've started playing it out against them simply for the times when they get Grumble battlecry before Chain Gang and lose on the spot

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I've been playing extreme control warlock, with Glinda/Gnomeferatu/Zola this week, bouncing around between rank 3-1, which makes Shudderwock pretty much an auto lose unless you can burn the combo.

But god it's fun when you manage it.

That should never happen vs control unless the Shudderwock player sucks. All they need to do is cast Zola at some point before going off. That guarantees a 9 mana Shudderwock copy in hand regardless of when Grumble procs.

Really?

Tell me, when you lose to shudderwock, how much mana did the first one cost?

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

You're not getting my point.

What happens when Shudderwock fizzles? You get a board full of Shudderwocks, you freeze a couple of targets, gain 6 life and deal 6 dmg. You also get a new 9 mana Shudderwock in your hand.

So what is the effect of this? Well, you don't get to cast another Shudderwock for 1 mana this turn and then go off next turn. But you can try all over again next turn with the 9 mana copy. So in effect it delays your combo by 1 turn. That can be meaningful, but vs control it often isn't.

You certainly don't "lose on the spot", unless the opponent can end the game next turn.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

It's worth noting that Zola works the same way as grumble, so if it goes off before the chain gangs you don't get the 9 mana copy either.

So it's a backup, but not a guaranteed one. Sometimes rng really doesn't want you to win

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Don't Shudderwock BCs go off in order the minions were played? I've literally never seen the combo mess up against me...
