    5 ranks of straight losing to rogue cancer? Sounds like you tilted pretty hard. Im probably not gonna push for rank 5 this month, just gonna go for rank 10 and keep it easy.

    a Rogue cancer quest

    Are you kidding me? Quest Rogue is ranked ladder's savior. It punishes the greedy stall decks and loses to F2P archetypes for free. Quest Rogue is the Robin Hood of Hearthstone.

    I just auto-concede vs Rogue as soon as I see the quest. If I wanted to watch someone play with themselves I'd go on a camsite.

    You guys should play less legendaries and collect your free wins.

    Welp, guess I will be skipping Rogue and "play a bunch of 2-cost minion" quests again. I wonder what I'll use the 1600 dust for.

    Not sure what to think about the caverns nerf... really don't want to see more jade drood on ladder. I just despise that deck wayyyy too much. I'm not much a fan of those overly polarized matchups in general, now quest rogue seems to be playable against control and a default loss against anything remotely fast. Would've preferred a nerf to 4/4 instead of 5/5, dunno. 5 minions seems harsh.

    Time to dust Caverns for the Warrior Quest, then. I guess instead of a Legendary, I'll use the Dust I've saved for the Warrior epics I'd need.

    New card type: Hero. Not a minion, but it replaces your hero when played. Does 3 things: Gives armor, has a strong battlecry effect, and replaces your hero power. They only revealed hunter so far. His hero power is build a beast. 2 mana, discover a beast (up to 5 mana). Then discover a second beast (up to 5 mana). Stitch them together (combine effects, card text, health, attack, and mana cost) into one card and add it to your hand. Also, adds 5 armor and has battlecry: deal 2 damage to all enemy minions when played.

    Deathrattle is getting good minions, and a new keyword: Lifesteal. Works like mistress of pain/burnbristle, whenever the damage is dealt you heal your hero for that much.
    For single player content, theres 9 missions. When you beat them, you'll earn 3 packs, and everyone earns 1 of the 9 death knight hero cards randomly.

    Priest gets a 2 mana deal 1 damage to all minions (Lifesteal) card, so thats gonna make for some massive swing. Also, with the deathrattle pool expanding, quest priest might be viable. We'll have to see what their hero card looks like.

    What I find funny is how that quest was dismissed as gimmicky when revealed, and now in hindsight people complain about blizzard releasing it. It only became degenerate after it got so highly refined, out of the gate it wasn't super great.

    Expansion seems cool so far. Need to try Uther for sure. Surprised at how many disruption cards are being printed especially with the team's desire to not make cards that make people angry. I welcome the disruption, opens up a lot more space I feel.

    Yeah, theres even a new set of cards revealed just today, "Deathknight Cards" where theres 8 that can come from Arthas (or his pet dog Arfus) and have cool effects, one which steals a minion from your opponents deck and puts it into your hand (removing it from their deck). Lots of cool digital only gamespace being explored this expansion, which should be fun.

    I was having kind of a weak pack opening, but then I got golden Lilian Voss so that made up for it.

    I had a theory they give you a DK based on your least played class or something lol, I got mine for Druid which is definitely my least played class

    No, Warlock is probably my most or second most played class with Priest, Zoo was always my go to for quick Laddering.

    Anyway...

    http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/894558-control-demon-lock

    this is what I'm rolling with for now but it needs changes. These are the cards on standby for adding in potentially.

    Stonehill Defender - Provides more overall Taunt value

    Sunfury Protector/Defender of Argus - Because Taunting Twilight Drakes and 6/6 bodies is an old pastime of Warlock.

    Mountain Giant - To go all in on making it a HandLock variant with the Drakes.

    Blastcrystal Potion - For one more bit of removal to take the edge off of Siphon Soul

    Ysera - I've noticed I'm struggling in the value war against other control decks, Ysera might help give an edge.

    Ultimately i think Sunfury/1 Potion/Ysera will give the best bang for my buck but unsure what to remove. Alex and Tar Creeper probably on the chopping block. Maybe drop a Voidwalker. Hesitant to drop the Zealots as they've been insanely clutch and at 1 I wasn't happy at when I was drawing it.

    I have the Paladin, Druid, and Mage DK. I'm glad I got the Paladin one, and the Druid one is OK, but I would have liked to have gotten the Warlock or Priest DK instead of the mage one.

    I also got Putridside :(

    I do have enough dust to craft 2 legendaries, though. There are still two Ungoro legendaries I want tho (Lyra the Sunshard and Elese the Trailblazer), but I guess I'll wait until the meta settles.

    Expansion really pushes the new control overlords.

    Still some climbing decently with some old aggro decks (Pirate Warrior, Murloc Paly, Mid Range Hunter.) but even then priest is hardest match up by far. Though Bearshark is SUCH a good card for aggressive hunter, makes the match up against Jade Druid one sided. (I havent played much so I'm a poor I love My Little Pony so much it hurts with common/rare shit of the new set.)
