    As an f2p player who joined HS during Kobolds and Catacombs, I am really looking forward to being able to experience what HS was like at the beginning. What cards and decks are you guys and gals going to be playing when it releases? 

    I'm probably going to be messing around with some cards which get their nerfs reverted like Warsong Commander.

    Something with Alarm-o-Bot. I miss the days when there was a genuine hope that it would survive for a turn...

    I wanna play Priest, just to see if it really was as terrible back then as people always say.

    Ha ha! I'll have to retrain my brain not to think "damn it's a priest" whenever I get matched up against one

    Miracle Rogue, Handlock, Control Priest (well, without Naxx and GvG, I don't know...), Control Warrior, Malygos Rogue... I'm looking forward to this. :)

    I guess I'll try out some of the classics since I've only joined some time around Blackrock Mountain. As a Hunter main that certainly means Undertaker Hunter, but I'm also curious about Patron Warrior and Miracle or Oil Rogue. 

    I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?

    Sadly* it's a flat no on all of those except Miracle Rogue. Undertaker, Tinker's Sharpsword Oil and Grim Patron were from Naxx, GvG and Blackrock respectively.

    * That's a complete lie that it is sad you won't be able to play Undertaker Hunter. We all agreed never to go there again... until they printed Tunnel Trogg of course, and caused more or less the exact same problem. But since then, never again. For realsies this time.

    You may be disappointed by Warsong Commander in a true vanilla meta. The nerf was due to an interaction with Grim Patron and Frothing Berserker that allowed warrior to build a board of patrons that all had charge to hammer away and trigger Frothing.

    There will tons of Zoolock featuring 3/2 Knife Juggler, lots of freeze mage, and plenty of Force of Nature druid. The warrior deck of choice will likely be Wallet Warrior, which is full on control and resource depletion. Miracle Rogue... not sure I want to go back to any of that. lol

     

    Now you kids are probably saying to yourselves, "Hey Matt, how can we get back on the right track?"

    No Undertaker, as he was Curse of Naxxramas. Face hunter is still on the table, just without the 1 drop that accelerated insanely.

    The nostalgia will definitely be fun. I'll probably go with Handlock or Wallet Warrior just to enjoy the fun of control when it had a bit better chance to maintain control. Far less OTK, far less swarm (because minions were way less sticky), and less resource generation (discover, shuffle into deck, etc.) available to opponents. 

    I always hated zoo, though. Not sure how long a stint I'll be able to do without getting retro-raged-out. lol
