How do you beat an opponent who's playing an annoying deck like Infinite Turtle Mage? Well, by ruining his game plan with an even more annoying card like Mindrender Illucia, of course!
Basically, my opponent had played like a thousand of those turtles and re-copying it into his hand with the new Mage illusion spell. I just waited until I was sure he'd drawn all copies of it then hit him with the Illucia and wasted every single one of those damn turtles. Feels good.
Legend: Season 74 (Odd Demon Hunter), Season 77 (Bomb Warrior)
And... it wasn't a fluke!
Just hit legend for the second time ever, with Pure Paladin. I was not stressing about the ladder this month (I really haven't since I made legend the first time in April of this year) - my goal before, and since, was/is Diamond 5 for the free epic.
I have been trying to grind wins with Paladin, so I focused the past two days on that class, after giving Priest, Demon Hunter, Hunter, two kinds of Rogue, Paladin, and Mage a try (in varying degrees of seriousness). I made it to the "final boss" three times before today, but each time lost and fell back a few stars. I think I spent the past two weeks in D1-D3. Finally strung together the final 4 game win streak and punched through!
My last opponent was a mirror, which is a matchup I have really struggled with. But this time, the trades and tempo just went my way in the mid-game and I got a couple bigger minions to stick and the winning card was a Light's Justice which I scored off my Lightforged Crusader on turn 8. I was able to face-tank a divine shielded taunt and with the stats I had on board my opponent conceded.
Hope this encourages others to keep striving and don't get too frustrated out there on ladder!
Pogo Brann is the best build, change my mind.
Got a nice finisher yesterday, mostly due to rng but still. Playing spell damage Shaman vs Gala Shaman, I played Vashj Prime wich drew Primordial Studies and 2x Serpentshrine Portal, all discounted to 0 mana. I played the studies and discovered Malygos. I saved the portals for next turn, and after playing Malygos I could burn my opponent with 16 dmg to the face (he was at 12) for only 8 mana. Not a huge achievement by any means, but still felt nice!
Sometimes a Hero + comp just comes together.
edit: AAAAND I just tripled my Razorgore and Drakonid Enforcer. lol
Runeterra: DEEP IS TRASH
I'm not even mad, that's hilarious. 99.8% chance to lose to the ghost.
Hit 5k after a little over a week!
First time I actually tried to go Legend and did it with 20 minutes left in the season. Sure, I had to swallow my pride and do the final push with Face Hunter instead of the budget Big Warrior deck I had but it still felt really good.
Golden portraits' progress:(19/Apr/20) Demon Hunter - 1; Druid - 548; Hunter - 589; Mage - 401; Paladin - 518; Priest - 338; Rogue - 337; Shaman - 557; Warlock - 480; Warrior - 483
I just hit legend for the first time! And i did it with a Highlander Control Priest! Control decks are my favorite type of deck so it felt really good to accomplish this without forcing myself to play aggro.
The highlight was one mirror match and it was one of the craziest (and longest) games i have ever played. I won on my very last few cards. My opponent didn't play safe when he was finally ahead and he ended up being surprised by a Kayn Sunfury (obtained from Brightwing that came from Dragonqueen Alexstrasza) into two Apotheosis into two attacks from the minions i had on the board and 7 fatigue damage for exact lethal. If my opponent traded i would have lost. If he played Mindrender Illucia, he would have won as well. It's impossible to play around something as random as this but it's not impossible to play safe when you are about to win. Btw, we both kept our Illucia's in hand the whole game and never played her because it's just too risky in a mirror match. I know he had one because i got a copy of it from Envoy of Lazul.
So I opened a legendary two packs in a row! Very convenient, since I'm thinking about start hoarding gold for the next expansion now. Yesterday I got Disciplinarian Gandling and today Sphere of Sapience from the season rewards. I'm especially happy about the first one, since it's such a cool card but I didn't want to craft it. I don't really know how to use the Sphere right now, but it feels good to have it in case some cool deck shows up. Maybe I should make an iteration of big warrior with the sphere to keep the big guns in the deck..?
I dropped Darkglare on Turn 2 and was able to cheat out 2 Flesh Giant and 1 Molten Giant on T4. My opponent left.
Might not be a big deal since a lot of you guys are way higher ranked on BG, but I grinded this morning for like 4 hours and broke 6k :)
I love having good, solid wins like managing to beat a Guardian Druid who ramped into Guardian Animals + Anubisath Defender on turn 3, then played another Guardian Animals by turn 5. I somehow managed to stay alive with a couple of Soul Shears and Shardshatter Mystics, and a well-timed Blade Dance, then I just chopped him down over three turns. I cherish wins like these more than the wild shenanigans this game provides sometimes.
Oh, and I love Soul Fragment DH. Currently 20-5 with it, and I think I have a serious chance of hitting legend with it. It's mowing through everything right now.
big divine shield mechs, feelsgood
Finally hit Standard Legend and got those Legendary Reward. (Lorewalker Cho)
Got rank 6545, and learned that once you hit legend, you can actually see your opponent ranks.
yey for me.
Knowledge is Power
