do you guys sometimes play a worse version of a deck, just to fit the theme?

    You're not the only one :p

    It can be a lot of fun (though sometimes painful as well) to try to figure out if you can make a certain type of deck work in a class it wasn't meant for.

    Absolutely!

    Theme >>> anything else.

    And with some luck, proper tweaking, and self-training, it ends up being just as good!

    I build a lot of theme decks and name them accordingly. But if they can´t hold 50% (or more) winrate after refining and testing (of course in ranked 10+) i will abandon them. ;-).

    Sometimes i park them knowing they are good but grinding with them at 4+ is too much to bear ... LoL.

    ive played a worse version of my deck because in my view the deck was better than the original, even though it often wasn't. case in point, I used to play deathwing in my old taunt warrior deck as a last bit of insurance.

    Same :

    There are only 10d types of people who understand binary, I know what 10b of them are but not the other 1000b.

    I absolutely love that. Other than this Spider Queen deck I have featured, which you can check on my profile, I also used to have this 'Spider King' druid deck with Malfurion the Pestilent, Crypt Lord, Hadronox, Fatespinner, Gnash, Tomb Spider that was so terrible compared to the Spider Queen counterpart. I kept that deck for awhile, but I decided to dust it for a golden Whizbang. 

    At the beginning of Rastakhan's Rumble, I also made a Horde Tiger Paladin deck with no clear win condition except for buffing Immortal Prelate, and play Lynessa Sunsorrow.

    Murloc decks are fun, but I'm never good at playing one of those.

    I absolutely enjoy Mage's Yogg-saron deck with the new Yogg's boxes, and any C'thun deck. I can play these for hours.

    Almost always :) :) 

     

    I mostly build decks around Themes and Tribes and sometimes they work but most of the time not so much :) :) 

    Only exception is if i want to ladder up :)

    Challenge me ... when you're ready to duel a god!

    If I want to have fun (which is most of the time) then I will try out decks that are so far beyond the Meta that you would need a telescope to see them.  Eventually I can usually refine them so that they win slightly more than they lose.  They rarely, however, are good enough to climb the ladder.  But if I've reached a Rank where I can't drop any lower, like say Rank 10 or 5, then it's bombs away!

     I made a yogg-themed deck in wild, so I had to add Servant of Yogg-Saron, even though it sucks

    Communism is just a red herring

    Very often. This is the challenge I like from this game, more than laddering alone.

    I tried to make a 'frog shaman' that used any frog or toad minion as well as a bunch of cheap lighting spells. it did not work, but it was super fun to build!

    Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand. I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me.

    Sure do.  Though really, I'm playing a version I think is a little more fun even it if is a little weaker.  I'd say I'll take up to a 10% increase in loss rate for a deck I really enjoy playing.

    If you don't like it, don't do it.
