    On the day the article was published, I jumped right in and built a modified version of my favorite Duels build, Token Demon Hunter.

    I believe I'm 4-0 but haven't gone back to it since that day. :( 

    My mission tonight is to get back to the game, finish the run, get the screenshots uploaded, and submit an actual entry! Wish me luck. 

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

    (How on earth do I insert my screenshots here? halp)

    You can use the Insert Image button up above the text box (looks like a picture, on the right). You can also copy an Imgur link and post that directly; it will automatically turn into the picture.

    Also, welcome to the site :D

    If you have the time, you should totally check out our weekly Hearthstone card design competitions! :D

    I decided to give Casual a try and got a 12-1 with this C'Thun Frenzy Warrior.

    I went with the full frenzy and armor battlecry package to stave off aggressive decks. The Whirling + Saurfang combo also gives a play against SW:V while often also gaining armor. It's a fun package that fit well. I scored the elusive ATN RtT treasure combo which certainly helped. The only loss was to a Band of Bees Murloc Shaman that was unwinnable. Screenshots below, and I also threw in a fun screenshot from the final boss.

    They need to be hosted somewhere on the internet, they can't be linked from the local harddrive. Imgur is the easiest to upload to, then make sure you copy the url to the actual image (ending in .png usually) and paste it in for the source.

    My first ever 12 wins in duels after a number of 11 win runs. Went 12-1 on casual with this Silver Hand Paladin list, got lucky with treasures and buckets but I guess that's what it takes to get to 12 wins.

    The starting screenshot is most important for proof that the rules in deck building were followed.

    Also seems like my result hasn't been added to the leaderboard yet and it's been about 4 days since I posted it now.

    Did a heroic run with Paladin and got to 12 - 2 

    Inspiration was Avalons Bis Paladin. Swapped Highlord Fordragon for Argent Commander.


    also did a 7 - 3 run, not sure if I should post that too

    Open those images in another tab, and you'll find their direct link. Should end in .png

    As for proving it's Heroic, we can tell because the vault handle is glowing blue, allowing you to open it for rewards :) Also the vault background-details look different in general IIRC (the axes in particular: they're gold).

    I'll mention something to Avalon: he's been busy with exams, so might not have seen it/gotten to it right away.

    Managed a 12-1 run in Casual, despite one of the worst starter decks I've ever made. Frustratingly, the only loss came at 11-0, and I ended up playing the exact same opponent a second time and winning by the tiniest margin. 

    A result of starting to build one deck, then switching to another idea, before finishing with a third, leaving Saurfang orphaned, and the recruit package unreliable. Also, don't try recruit warrior in Duels. Just don't.

    Treasures were Pillage the Fallen and Scepter of Summoning. Pillage was a pleasant surprise,  I definitely underrated the value that can come from constantly having a 3/4/5 mana weapon up. Scepter was just horribly broken, partially for allowing coining out Oakheart on 4, which then pulled another 18 mana worth of minions into play.

    If I tried it again, I'd drop the whole recruit package, and find something better for the six slot. The high rolls helped, but pulling anything under a 5 drop from them was just horrible. 

     

    Starting Decklist, Final Decklist, final blow on the final boss, and 12 win pop-up in the spoiler.

    Greetings everyone and thanks for your patience.

    As Link already pointed out (thanks!), the last week was quite busy for me, and the free time I had was taken by the recent balance patch, so I wasn't able to pay much attention to this thread. However, I am now back, and I will see what happened in my absence.


    Revaz142 - Unfortunately, your Questline Priest submission is not valid. I can see that you could've really built your deck in order to respect the restrictions, but the initial screen rule should not be broken. I try to be as flexible as possible, accepting HSReplay replays and such (even though I shouldn't and, to be correct, I won't from October), but if I were to let this slide then everyone would do the same. Again, I am sorry, because not recognizing someone's efforts feels pretty shitty, but I have little to no decision room here...

    Evilgnomey - Congratulations for the Dude Paladin 12er! The submission is valid and will be uploaded in the leaderboard.

    Aventurin - Hey there, welcome and congratulations for your feat! I am glad that my pre-made deck was useful for you. Your submission is valid as will be uploaded soon.

    shaveyou - Wow, you hit 12-0 with that deck? Incredible! I am very glad to give up the lead to someone as creative as you. GG
