Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Honestly that play vs Jab in their last game was so greedy that Trump straight up earned that loss.

Besides that massive error you stated, he just made weird choices, misplayed his knife juggles a few times. It was just bad.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

been getting crushed with my midrange hunter lately so I decide to tweak it a bit and add a ram wrangler instead of shredder.

So far I've dropped him twice and gotten a 1/1 both times...

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

shredder was actually weakened quite a lot by darnassus aspirant.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

just lost to a cancer druid who went turn 1 leper gnome, i played a shrink meister. he traded in, played a stealth druid of saber.

i started loading up board

he played turn 3 shade, left all stealthed

he played turn 4 keeper to silence me

i cleared what i could (he still had them stealthed) and played to curve

he played turn 5 stealth saber

turn 6 i fill up board and bring him to 13, im at full

he fon coin innervate savage roar for turn 6 lethal while quite literally never once interacting with my board, making a trade, or even unstealthing. just won on turn 6.

its the most broken class because of draws like this. there was never a single decision - i maxed out mana, cleared the 1 thing i could hit (2/4 with blademaster) and had full health.

didnt matter, he did 31 damage

correction, he sent his 1 drop into my 2 drop*.

That deck could drop a bow or juggler for another shredder

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Not that I know better than him obv.


But I run a similar deck with less early game and more mid to late game

I take out
2 bows
2 juggler
1 explosive trap
1 Quick shot

And add in
1 bear trap
1 king elekk
1 arcane shot
1 shredder
1 explosive shot
1 tiger

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I'm usually fine in the early game and found myself not needing the bow and needing more big minions / board presence

I ran into this deck last night. Dropped frost nova / doomsayer on 5 which he immediately silenced, but then I popped his shredder and another doomsayer came out. He immediately conceded, I assume I'd have lost otherwise.

I don't follow the meta / streamer stuff so much but I think close to 80% of the opponents I saw yesterday were either zoo or tempo mage... Is that a thing now?

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Been seeing a lot of tempo mage at ranks 4-5. I hate it cause they sorta counter my deck rotation. And even worse, whenever I try to join the enemy and play casinomage myself I hit the bad side of variance and the deck just fizzles out.

I hardly see much zoo anymore, which is sad cause I have a better winrate against them than any other deck.

Yup. Druid is edging out Patron as the most broken class in HS. Patron needs a minor Frothing nerf, but the Druid combo DEFINITELY needs an adjustment.

I suggest a 10 mana combo requirement, either make savage roar 4 mana or Force of Nature 7 mana. I think that will help, and not make the class unplayable.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Having watched the HS Americas qualifier for Blizzcon I can safely say that Jab's decks were by far the most inspiring to me. His casino mage looks like a lot of fun and his balls to bring a ram wrangler/ekk mid range hunter to the qualifier is really impressive. I'll be trying out both of these decks.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Having a lot of fun with this Feign Death deck, but it's super-weak against aggro:



Not sure what the best thing to sub in would be, or what to take out. Explosive Trap, Bear Trap and Annoy-O-Tron seem possibly good but I'm kinda heavy on 2-drops already. Maybe put an Annoy and a Bear Trap in and sub Eaglehorn Bow for the Glaivezookas?

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

^ You got secrets and no bow?

^ Glaivezooka is good in a face deck, you're playing more control.

^ Aggro is like 50%+ of the meta right now, you need to address that weakness.

Suggestions: - Undertakers, - zooka. + bow, + quick shots for starters. Maybe remove deadly shot and add 2nd hoarder.

I've spent a fair amount of time trying to build viable feign decks without success. Best of luck to you.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Something I heard ADWCTA say on his podcast--he hopes that Frothing isn't nerfed because Warrior is by far the worst Arena class and Frothing was one of the few good class cards.

I hardly play arena, so I have no opinion on this. Do you think this could be the reason Blizzard doesn't nerf Frothing?

Frothing is really a okay card in general unless it has charge. If they have no removal it's also great but it's much harder to buff in Arena than in constructed due to a limited amount of whirlwind effects.

I really don't think that's the reason why they don't nerf Frothing. The issue with Warrior in arena is a ton of it's good cards aren't common and the best decks for warrior are either very dust heavy (CW) which sucks in arena or very combo heavy which also sucks in arena. Arena is made for classes with strong class cards (especially strong common/rare are very important) that don't require combos. So unless they change warrior all together, it's always going to suck in arena.
