Congrats on hitting legend with that high of a winrate!
The DH list looks fairly standard but I have some questions for the Enrage Warrior list. How did the Athletic Studies compare to the 'standard' replacements of the 2nd Corsair Cache and Rampage? It's felt to me that Warrior has been somewhat dependent on Cache to help stabilize while the Rampage usually ends up being to stabilize a board or get a bit of extra burst.
Athletic Studies has been absolute gold in this deck. I played around with a few different configurations but the Studies simply gave me the most bang for the buck. The ability to get just the right Rush minion at a crucial time is, to me, much more valuable than a 3rd Shield of Honor (Rampage) or a 2nd Cache.
I found that Cache was often a very bad tempo play early or a dead card late and after the nerf I don't think running 2 of them is justified. This deck does not revolve around it's weapons like Bomb Warrior. I also had to cut a card to make room For Barov and the Cache was just the worst performing card in the deck.
The original deck (pre-Scholomance) only ran 2 Rampage so I look at this as a 1 for 1 replacement with Shield of Honor. I tried running Rampage over a few of the other cards but in the end I felt it was simply overkill as Shield is better in just about every situation.
That said you can cut the Studies or just run 1 of them and add a Cache or a Rampage (or 2) back in. But I really think my run was made much easier because of the Studies. Try it out and let me know if you get similar results.
I've never been that great with Enrage Warrior but I'll definitely let try out the list and let you know how it feels for me. A couple games in and the Studies do feel pretty nice, although most the times it's fetched Krastinov to give Livewires an extra durability. Once I finish my climb the next 1-2 days, I'll have to try swapping in a Cache and see how it feels in comparison.
As for the rampage comparison, having the two Shields makes so much more sense than running a Rampage since it just lines up combos more easily due to being cheaper.
Thanks for the two breakdowns as to why you chose Studies over the two more 'mainstream' cards!
