Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

as much as I love control warrior, it and Dr. Boom are not healthy for the game

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Control warr mirror is a HUGE skill tester and is almost unwinnable if you are the worse player.

I just beat a rank 6 and when he conceded i was 22 cards ahead in fatigue with 70 health and still had 2 brawls, 2 execute, and 2 ten mana mechs

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

when both players play correctly it hits the turn limit, it sucks

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Ya, I hit turn limit 3 times and decided to play another deck.

I've been a huge control warrior fan since Naxx too.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I don't see why people aren't playing the mechathun version more, seems way better against the mirror and it's only maybe slightly worse Vs control shaman. I really don't want to craft it so I'm still playing archivist

Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Whats scary about that deck is i only need to sub out like baleful banker and elysiana and add a few slams to make it mechathun

Seems kind of an unlikely combo though and the deck isnt as good against token druid

You can play it with two brawls, just need to make sure you dump one early enough. And it's hard to imagine a scenario you can't get it off vs CW which is most of the reason you need elysiana. They don't have enough pressure to keep you below 10 armour.

Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Yea this is a great tech as much as i hate mechathun i can eat my pride. Ive won twice with it, the win cond is not that hard. This is a fun deck. I disagree the mirror is always guaranteed to go to turn limit, itís personally never come close for me. I see people make a LOT of mistakes with this deck that are not immediately obvious.

Here is what Iím working with at the moment. Most versions I see are much heavier on cycle, but IME i am constantly dealing with hand size issues which usually means draw is not an issue. I think the incorrect way to look at this is as a cycle to combo deck, itís not. You just have mechathun as a backup win cond when everything else has failed. Or in a lot of matchups, itís nice just having a 10/10 rush mech. Waaaaay better than banker/elysiana, theyre too slow.

As you can see I have a lot of weapon hate and harrison is nice against the rogues or playing project + harrison on 7 for draw 3 cards and get 6 armor and a weapon. Baron geddon is the token druid hate tech and it just wins games on the spot. Iíd love to squeeze in a second super collider or omega devastator but i cant see where yet.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Yes thats what excited me about this set. It seems there are a lot of GREAT cards that are not being played. It hopefully means the meta will be in a constant changing state. Itís kind of settling right now but just one nerf to whatever the problem becomes and weíre at a great place. I am actually really enjoying this. Going to stream now

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Darkest Hour has been tearing up wild though. Turns out a turn 3 Lich King, Malganis, Voidlord doomguard and 2 nerubian unravelers is pretty strong

Looks like I picked the wrong time to dust my golden blood bloom that's been sitting around doing nothing for 3 sets
