    I actually miss seeing it on ladder. Grinding out warlock wins, and that match up is free for handlock (well 6-4 at worst). Now it's hunter... Hunter everywhere.. Which is at best a 2-8 match-up for handlock. At best.

    Well King Swampy is better than I thought, but Tyrantus sucks ass. If anyone knows a good not quest Druid deck for him let me know, might dust him for one of a dozen epics I would actually use.

    In other news trying to find a Quest Warrior I like. Current builds I've been doing have been to slow, and not as reliable as ole control warrior for removal or keeping the board in check. Going to try some drastic changes and see how it goes.

    Man I really fucking hate priest, especially the greedy as fuck ones but tonight justice was served. You know what I'm talking about, the ones that Shadow Word: Death the second they see the number 5 on a minions attack. Anyway I was playing a Hunter C'thun deck and I lost the board at turn 9 to Holy Nova and only had 3 cards in hand. Managed to get a weak hounds + Hyena combo which gave me a 4/3. Instead of trading with his beefy 6/5 or his other two minions dude mind controls my hyena and I proceed to top deck C'thun wipe his board and win the game. Bearing in mind the dude had 20 life and my C'thun was only a 12/12 taunt. A win never felt more satisfying.

    I took a short break from Hearthstone during my vacation but having come back, I am having a lot of fun with Wild Quest Rogue

    So happy with how viable Mage as a class is in Un'Goro, what worked so far in R5 to legend and there:
    • Secret
    • Discover/Gunther/Burn/Hybrid... whatever you want to call it
    • Freeze
    • My favorite, pure Tempo. Even survived the loss of Flamewanker.
    It's been a while since I did 300 matches in only 15 days. Goodguyblizzard regained some of my faith and trust and hopes.

    Primordial Glyph is completely busted so it would make sense for all sorts of Mage decks to be viable.

    No. Glyph is a perfectly fine and reasonable card. Whoever designed it should recieve a raise. A big one. : 3

    The cost reduction was a genius idea.

    Climbed to 10 with Purify Priest, and got bored so am doing to 5 with Miracle Giants Rogue. Some of the turns are fucking ridiculous, clearing hunters board and dropping a 10/10 on like turn 3 is magic

    I took one look at it and thought to myself "so this is basically an Unstable Portal that always rolls high".
    Reynoodle nailed it in his review pretty much. You gain access to cards you shouldn't have, it's impossible to play around it and it wins you games you should have lost. I usually like discover as a mechanic, but boy oh boy are glyph and defender in paladin deck the shit... thought it at least sometimes get 3 shitty spells but nope.

    Basically the smaller the pool of cards you can discover from, the more like tutoring Discover becomes.

    Depending on the opponent and your deck that can actually be really good.

    People are always shitting on shatter but with the amount of random freezes you get off of Tome, Book, that stupid 2/1 and discover off of glyph, I've seen it used many times.

    Yeah it's like pally secrets, if you get one it's good, but it's never worth a card slot on it's own. I ended up using freezing potion to stall his big guy because I didn't have any freezing effects outside of snowchugger (yeah it was wild lol)

    Secret mage is so fun. Had a guy fireball a minion thinking I had ice block up with 6 hp. He found out the turn after it was actually mirror image, giving me legal.

    So stream monsters made Disguised Toast cry on stream last night lol. Guess he wasn't as immune to the trolls as I thought, he's usually pretty slick handling them.

    From his last broadcast.

    At about 3hrs 18min in. He's playing his version of Exodia Mage and getting destroyed all night. This obviously puts him on tilt so he starts making simple mistakes and it costs him a few games. Then some trolls start telling him to kill himself because of his plays and whatnot so he turns off the face cam but you can hear his voice cracking just before he mutes his mic.

    Jesus Christ. If Toast's chat is that cancerous I wonder how bad some of the other, less beloved streamer chats are. Good thing I never read it.

    Thats crazy, just watching the chat. His actual subscribers berating him. That can't be good mentally for him. At that point you're fucking selling your soul for their money.

    We would never let that shit slide in Kiblers chat. We even ban fuckers for yelling Lethal if they can't back it up with actual plays, because that shit gets on casters nerves. He needs to buckle down and have his mod team crack some skulls. We get shit as Mods, but the environment is so much healthier for everyone involved.

    I never understood how written words from complete strangers can hurt you... much less reach you. I guess I'm lucky like that. Then again, I've never been in a situation where thousands of people tell me to "kill myself"...

    It's all context. If streaming was how I earned a living, and I had to put up with that all the time? I'm not sure how I'd react to it every single day.

    That being said, I never look at twitch chat. Toxicity levels too strong.

    I love twitch chat. It's so exaggerated and meme-y... It's like peak human stupidity and that's funny.

    I'm in my 30s and have to put up with enough stupidity on a day to day bases. I have no desire to willingly walk into more.

    Secret mage mirrors are so dumb! I also am sad it's so popular.. I was enjoying being that snowflake for a brief moment.
  • GomuGomuGomuGomu Strider Sucks Joined: Posts: 9,430
    That feel when a mage has your board frozen 4 turns in a row while you watch them secret up, then busting off a flare and killing them before they can run their bullshit. Never seen a mage portrait explode faster in my life. Absolutely the most satisfying feeling you can have in this game.

    I think using golakka crawler on pirate warrior is a pretty similar feeling

    I've started playing Freeze Mage again. It seems that as long as you get a remotely decent draw you just faceroll everything except Quest priest. Control Warrior too I guess if anyone still played that.

    Funny how some of the old cards sometimes gets a surge of play out of nowhere. Medivh the Guardian saw zero play during Karazhan meta, was only played in meme decks during MSOG, but now is the card too look up for in control matches. It's actually insane how powerful a Firelands/Pyroblast/Free from Amber turn can be with Atiesh.
  • AreEyeSeaKayAreEyeSeaKay Joined: Posts: 1,636
    I love this brawl. Not that I don't like the current meta, I really miss using yeti and taz'dingo in control / mid range decks

    A pauper ladder would be fun I think based on this brawl. Wonder if they're testing the waters. Might not have enough interest beyond the novelty though.
  • ukyo_rulzukyo_rulz Joined: Posts: 4,324
    They should do a brawl where everyone has access to the entire cardpool and can try out any deck they like. Give the plebs a taste of gold, whet their appetite so they end up spending more cash.

    Was hyped for the brawl at first, but it turned into meh quickily, too.
    Maybe I was just unlucky, facing in 10 games 5 hunters and 3 face warriors. Pretty boring 8(
    Was surprised not to see any zoolocks, played tempo rogue myself.

    I think classic zoolock got hit pretty hard by so many of the nerfs to the core cards, no more 3/2 jugglers, 2/1 abusives, no PO allowed, etc.

    Yup, that's true, but as most decks got nerfs and are quite gimped by the no epic/legendary I thought it'd be really good.
    This one "only" got nerfs to Soulfire (+1mana) and Juggler. Was early/mid 2014, after the nerfs to Shattered Sun Cleric and Defender of Argus, iirc

    fkn Shieldbearers... Can't think of any other changes right now, so long ago, but it was after Cleric/Argus nerfs for sure.
    That deck was nuts for some time... and it's already 3 years ago, damn. Playing this game way too long.
