    a few things:

    Druid is very flexible actuallly as the quest itself is more of a shell (similar to the ramp package of the past). All you really need are the few enablers + Oasis Surger and Hidden Oasis and you have the perfect defensive shell to fit a win condition into. Right now we have value, Malygos and Nomi builds and it's not too hard to imagine any new win condition fit into this style of deck easily.

    Shaman will, in fact, not ALWAYS be good, because they depend heavily on battlecry win conditions. If they don't have another win condition by next year the rotation will destroy them. How does Quest Shaman win without Lifedrinker, Shudderwock, Former Champ, Giggling Inventor. How are they going to win without those? Just spam Lackeys to win?

    Warlock isn't as limited as you might think either...it's just that there's currently not a lot of good healing defensive options to justify committing to a Plot twist deck (also the fact that Warrior basically cancels anything you might want to do anyways, but that's not Warlock's fault). The quest is actually pretty neat in the endgame, although it would be nice to have better shuffle options available. THat being said, the ability to shuffle and draw a specific card has potential

    Rogue is in a funny spot where the reward is amazing and enables a lot of cool cards (especially Blade Flurry), but the activation is just so hard to pull off consistently (without having to mutilate your deck)

    also Warrior is just redundant because it's not good enough to outclass control and not aggressive enough to replace straightforward aggro

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Quest shaman presents a problem for future expansions though. Every time they release a new Shaman battlecry card or a neutral battlecry card, they have to consider how it can be abused in this deck. I foresee significant problems in this regard in the future.

    Quest Shaman is probably one of the more overrated decks in the game right now. It is certainly good, but, as VS pointed out, it's not as good as its representation suggests it would be.

    Communism is just a red herring

    I did. My response doesn't change. Good deck. Overplayed because it's fun (which is a perfectly legitimate reason to overplay a deck).

    First let me say.... I LOATHE HUNTER.  I hate playing it.  I hate playing against it.  I really really hate Hunter.  With that being said, Unseal the Vault is ridiculous card and is really easy to pull of by turn 6 or 7 consistently.  I remiss in that I spent my lat 1600 dust on it.  But since I did, I did an autocomplete deck with that being the only card I added directly, and have been on an awesome win streak.  I hate that I like.  I hate that it is solid.  I hate that it can only be consistently killed by combo priest.  But it is actually really solid quest.

    I don't think it's AS good as you seem to think, but I agree that it's a strong competitive deck. I think it may be the best deck not seeing widespread play right now. I wouldn't be surprised that, after a little more iteration, it's better than Highlander Hunter.

    It actually looks fun to play. I'm thinking of dusting my golden Making Mummies to craft this, since the Paladin quest just bores the hell out of me. 

    Hilarious avatar, btw. Found myself singing the song in my head.

    Hunter Stats

    Got to agree with you here.

    I am not that competitive in the game and mostly play casual. (Don't even use a tracker so this image is all I have to show) Played my Quest Hunter for a while when it came out thinking it would be a meme, but ended up going into ranked to try it out in a more harsh enviroment.

    I dont think the deck is op, and I know my results don't look the same as a more reliable source. But it is actually quite underated.

     

    And the best part is... The deck is actually lots of fun!
