Favorite Old God?

    I own all the old gods right now (C'Thun, Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound Yogg-Saron, Hope's End, and N'Zoth, the Corruptor), occasionally I try and make decks that focus on the cards, and I was wondering what everyones favorite old gods are, and what decks you enjoy playing with them right now.

    My favorite is either Yogg, because he is a blast, or N'zoth, because he is the most practical one.

    Carrion, my wayward grub.

    I like N'Zoth a lot, he's especially good with the new Khartut Defender since they die twice. I like running him in this taunt wall rogue deck that shuffles tons of N'Zoth's back into your deck. Only somewhat related, but do y'all think it'd be cool to have a way to get the Olds Gods in Standard? Like maybe through a new 6 Mana 5/5 Legendary with "Battlecry: Choose an Old God. Add it to your hand." That way Yogg and N'Zoth decks could be in standard again! This might be too broken in wild though (especially with double of C'Thun, N'Zoth, and Yogg).

    C'Thun will always be my favourite, back when he was still in Standard I at least tried him with almost every class. Sadly I don't think he's super viable in Wild.

    N'Zoth is the one I play the most nowadays since he's just super strong. Right now I have him in Renolock, but I've also played him in Ramp Druid.

    And because I'm evil incarnate, I also play Y'Shaarj in Big Priest.

    I don't own Yogg and I doubt I'd play him even if I did. Not with my luck.

    Not sure if he counts as an old God, maybe he is a new God, but I love me some Mecha'thun. I have always liked combo decks, and nothing better than a combo that says you win. I recently beat a Druid that had something like 1280 armor. Feels good. :)

    C'Thun.  One fun deck to pull off is what I call my "Nightmare Druid".  Because you can play three buffed C'Thun's in one turn with double battlecry on each.

    Aviana > Innervate > Kun > Brann > C'Thun > Zola (on C'Thun) > 2x C'Thun (from Zola).  With just a 10/10 C'Thun can drop 60 damage on your opponent and their board in a turn.

     

    And as the Eye says "My dreaming ends.  Your nightmare begins!"

    Quick!  Someone give me something clever to write here.

    I loved the pre-nerf Yogg-Saron, Hope's End , just like everyone else, but after his shameful death, my prayers go to N'Zoth, the Corruptor . I´m just having fun with my wild deathrattle rogue with Anka, the Buried :D

    Please be kind to each other

    Despite having all of them, and Yogg-Saron, Hope's End in Gold, I only tend to use The Great Yogg and N'Zoth, the Corruptor

     But The Great Yogg gets my vote. I still haven't won the Lottery yet, but I keep kneeling at his alter none the less.

    Even though Zotty has served and still serves me well even after he was nerfed to the ground I can't help but praise our Lord and Savior Yogg more than anyone else... Maybe if we all pray hard enough they'll finally ban him from any kind of competitive format and revert the nerf...

    Yogg evolve shaman all the way!

     

    Praise Yogg!

    (Must admit he's forsaken me lately...casting DOOM on a full board when I'm in fatigue...)

    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    N'zoth and C'thun.. 

    I don't own N'zoth yet but he's my next craft. C'thun I've been having lots of fun with.  A certain AngryShuckie suggested a C'thun Hunter using Emeriss and I just had to try that.

    No real interest in the other old gods.. maybe if something shows up in next expansions.

    ARES summons Erymanthian Huffer.

    ARES declares attack with Huffer .

    Adonis' hp reached 0. ARES wins!

    I loved and still love C'thun decks, play some to this day :)

    But if im honest, N'zoth is probably my favourite overall.

    I realy loved C'Thun and had a lot of fun with different C Thun Decks but i also liked Yogg-Saron, Hope's End very much - sure he could betray you and give you lots of shitty spells etc but it was hell of fun.

    I also kinda like Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound because i played a lot of Big Priest in Standard (People can hate me now , i do not care :) ) 

    But C'Thun und Yogg are defenitely way more fun!

    C'Thun is the one with the most interesting and fun mechanics, but I really loved to play N'Zoth, the Corruptor into a Deathrattle Reno Priest.

    I presonally hate Yogg-Saron, Hope's End: the game has already too much RNG and a deus ex machina that can turn the table just with luck just seems wrong under any point of view.

    Still playing N'Zoth, the Corruptor for every possible class. Found his battlecry very powerful one you play it.

    N'Zoth is surely the strongest (Y'Shaarj is strong only with Big Priest's shell, it doesn't count and it's not a build around card), but the funnier is Yogg Saron.

    Obviously the best is C'thun with his quotes.

    N'Zoth all of the way. It is still my go to build around for most drawn out late game OTK decks due to being able to represent massive stall/distraction with sludge belchers and applebaums while assembling my combo (which is excellent for classes in wild that lack nearly as many, if any at all, class heals/survivability).

    Although, I still will always love my N'Thun Reno Rogue deck that I've had since WotOGs.

    N'zoth got even better at stalling now with Khartut Defender, one defender will spawn 2 with n'zoth because of reborn, so if two of them died then n'zoth will summon 4 and you can get 26 heal from all the deathrattles.

    I like C'thun the most because of the system synergies. The minions buffing it can be the main focus of your deck, or sometimes I enjoy throwing some in to distract my opponent from my actual win-condition.

    Until a old God card is printed that is as mechanically interesting as Yogg-Saron, Hope's End, Yoggy will be my favorite.

    I liked him more pre-nerf but he is still fun.
