Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

The last time mage had a tier 1 deck on meta snapshot Medivh was in standard, looking close with it taking 2.01. Doubt it hits tier 1 this expac though

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)



I'm sure you're all dying to know what im running these days, well here it is

Code: AAECAf0EBLQElgXu9gKmmAMNDKsE5gSXBuEHvAi0/ALIhwPSiQODlgOfmwPimwP/nQMA

Pretty fun getting 10 spells from cyclone or 22/22 questing adventurers after 1 turn

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I've barely played the last few weeks so I don't really know how the meta has shifted lately but that's one interesting deck: very low mana, only one legendary. What's your WR with it and at what rank(s)?

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

there is another mana cyclone list that's a bit better but it's an interesting deck with a pretty high skill cap

apxvoid says tier 1

This deck has elements of apxs and others. Apx for example runs 2x rabble, Antonidas, Harrison, Khadgar, among a few other changes but pretty confident Ive played his.

Difference with my deck above is we give up those high value cards for more consistent Luna draws and faster questing/addict build up. If you want to run antonidas or vex crow or 4 mana spell lady feel free theyre pretty strong.

All spell mage decks are high skill cap though with a lot of options which is the type of deck I like to play

this is my most recent game, look at turn 14. Just a casual 17/17 questing on the turn he's dropped

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I don't like going all in on stuff like Questing, it might just be a playstyle thing though

Not really all-in, the deck has 4 win conditions:
1) Questing Adventurer snowball
2) Mana Addict big turn
3) Giants + Conj Calling
4) Chip damage then fireball/pyros/frostbolts from the mana cyclones

of course just surviving to turn 7-10 against rogue/druid often just wins

yah, honestly that's what i enjoy the most about the deck - it's potential is still barely understood and it has such a high skill cap.

Basically, here's the minimum i'd say you need to make the deck work:



That's 19/30 cards, while there's a ton of different options to fill those last 11 cards like Khadgar, Vex Crow, exotic mountseller, Archmage Antonidas, stargazer, another buffoon, rabble bouncer, sea giant, sandbinder, zilliax, questing, research project, mana addict, frost nova/doomsayer, frostbolt, arcane missile, tome, messenger raven, archmage vargoth, violet spellsword, and more but again only 11 spots you can put in

I was playing big shaman against a control warrior. He shield slammed two of my totems on like turn 4. It didn't matter, he played 6 omega devastators

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)



Ran into a bit of bad luck with the spell deck then tried something completely crazy that didnt work and tanked to 5, 1 away from 2 now with this deck with an 11-win streak

AAECAf0EDPsBxQSKB57wAsz0AsP4AqCAA6iHA+yJA+iUA5aaA6 CbAwmKAasE+wbhB40Izu8CzYkD6IkDg5YDAA==

Think there's a big advantage with this one over the other versions where you have to hold mountain giant for conj calling normally, whereas this deck you can slap MG on 3 or 4 and be fine with it dying because you can conj calling jan'alai or astromancer as well, or sometimes zilliax/twilight.

same thing with Khadgar where you can now also use him with astromancer or POC, or the dream with Jan'alai

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

quick aside i apologize if anyone dislikes the mage spam of posts like this, it seems kinda slow in here sometimes and I legitimately am enjoying playing these decks.

additionally i love it when you guys critique these decks

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Seems like there a ton of potential replacement cards in that deck. Loot Hoarder over Kalecgos for example? Frost Novas/MCTs could probably get in there too. A dragon deck without the 5/4 rush guys seems a bit unique too.

All fine options. I've played a ton of Kalecgos and he's fringe, his main problem being dead against token and usually rogue.

Loot Hoarder is a tech for Arugal - if you can get him to live until next turn you can play Arugal and trade him for +1 card

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

How about running book of specters for Arugal synergy and minion draw? I think I've seen it done. Seems super counter-intuitive in this deck but I think I heard the logic being your few minions are so valuable and you have other spell generation it's worth to dig for them.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Finally beat heroic first chapter and i got... nothing

I just don't understand blizzard sometimes. It's like if raiding in wow gave no loot, yah solo adventures were kinda fun but seriously no reward per chapter for being heroic?

Ok here's a look at what you get, so you get a few hours of entertainment for $20. Reddit would link to all the full games you can buy for $15 that would last way longer so... meh

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

People spend money on micro-transactions in games all the time just for cosmetic stuff. I'm not saying it's a good deal, but I do think there is a somewhat weird bias of the 2p2 gaming forum to be like old ladies snipping every coupon and being super frugal like they have to grind 0.01/0.02 for months to buy a $5 indie game.


You're getting 15 packs of RoS, a golden classic pack, a golden legendary AND solo-game content. I don't think the price is that bad, although it's probably something I won't get. I'm also assuming the above graphic is correct and that you get all that stuff for $20.
