    So, do you have any Insta-crafts for DoD?

    Any cards you are going to craft for sure, before or right after pack opening?

    Cards that come on the very top of your wishlist?

    These are the cards i am surely going to craft (BEFORE opening, since i am sure i want them anyway) and their main purpose:

    1. Flik Skyshiv (Tempo Reno Rogue)
    2. Dragonbane (Face Even Hunter)
    3. Kronx Dragonhoof (Galakrond Shaman and Warrior, hopefully decent in Wild).

    Additionally, i really wish to drop these cards with packs, but i'm uncertain about crafting them (i'd hate to spend resources on cards that end up being unplayable for my Wild purposes):

    • Malygos, Aspect of Magic (tons of fun, but considerably slower than Secret or Quest Mage).
    • Frizz Kindleroost, but same as above, it might be too slow, and/or require too much card draw.
    • Ancharrr (might actually fit a new iteration of Wild PW, but it could be too slow).

    Waxadred - Dragon-Rogue ftw! 

    Dragonqueen Alexstrasza - Highlander-Decks are my fav archetype. And since it's neutral, you can do whatever you want with it

    Kronx Dragonhoof - seems to be the must-have Legendary of this set

    Murozond the Infinite - because it's a Dragon in Priest. 'nuff said.

    As far as epics go, definitely Fate Weaver. The Effect is very strong and, again, it's a Dragon in Priest

    1. definitly Frizz Kindleroost

    2. Stormhammer if i don't get it in my packs

    3. Veranus but only if it would prove to be useful in my dragon hunter

    since i won't be opening many packs this expansion (around 26) i will craft any dragon related card from hunter and neutral that i won't get in my pack opening

    Both Frizz Kindleroost and Kronx Dragonhoof seem like the must-haves for this set for Dragon decks or Galakrond decks respectively.

    As for any others, I'm actually not so sure. I love the idea of a Miracle/Tempo Rogue deck with Waxadred, but it doesn't seem like it would actuallybe very good in practice. Dragonqueen Alexstrasza seems really good and Highlander decks are quite strong even with just Zephrys the Great, but it feels like a card for a deck which I probably won't play.

    Probably gonna get Veranus as well as Waxadred and Flik Skyshiv.

    Hoping to open some good Mage Stuff and either Alex or Frizz so I can justify crafting the rest of Highlander Mage (or Tempo Mage)

    Gonna also get Warlock if I don't open them in my initial pack drop.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Rogue is my go-to class, so I'll probably craft Waxadred and Flik Skyshiv. I'll also maybe prioritize Kronx Dragonhoof and Frizz Kindleroost because of all the Galakronds we get for free and the sheer amount of dragons.

    Well it's over

    Why do you craft them before opening? Want them golden? Otherwise, you are increasing the chance of getting legendaries you don't want from your packs.

    Probably a couple more but Kronx and Alexstraza are on the top of my list.

    They are basicly must have‘s for Highlander and Galakrond deck

    Winner winner chicken dinner

    I really don't get this: unless you're crafting those cards golden there's no reason for you to do it before the pack opening.

    For what concerns me, there are a few legendaries in this expansion that are a must have or that intrigue me:

    1. Malygos, Aspect of Magic (cool, too bad the upgraded spells have the same art of the "basic" ones)
    2. Dragonrider Talritha (cool, I don't think it will be strong but very interesting and flavorful)
    3. Dragonbane (Face Even Hunter for me too)
    4. Waxadred (I already have all the deathrattle package in existence, so I'd love to use it for this boy)
    5. Valdris Felgorge (I have 40 wins with Warlock but I just love this card's effect and I'd like to have it even if I won't play it)
    6. Dragonqueen Alexstrasza (clearly a must have)
    7. Kronx Dragonhoof (clearly a must have)
    8. Frizz Kindleroost (less clearly than the two above, but still a quite important card that anyone should have)

    I will realistically just get two or maybe three cards from this list, so I guess I'll just craft whatever I won't find from the last three and then see what I'll be able to play. To be honest I think Saviour of Uldum has better legendaries overall.

    Crafting BEFORE gives me more chances to drop in packs some legendaries I'd like to try, but I wouldn't dare to craft.

    Basically, that way I end up with some less dust, but more legendary cards to toy around.

    I guessed this is the case, I feel like that too about some of my legendaries. But if you have extra dust, little more bravery in crafting could bring you more fun in playing exactly what you wanted to try, meme or not :)

    I'll try to get every card since i'm a collector and i should have enough gold/dust+the big predorder.

    The following legendaries will see some playtime on my account.

     

    Ysera, Unleashed (i just like Ysera)

    Veranus (hopefully that card helps a little bit to establish a control hunter)

    Malygos, Aspect of Magic (a cool card and nice addition to highlander dragon mage)

    Nozdormu the Timeless (Midrange/BIG Paladin YEAY!)

    Dragonrider Talritha (Midrange/BIG Paladin YEAY!)

    Murozond the Infinite (i love the art, concept of the mechanic and the background story)

    Waxadred (i'm eager to play a controlish style of rogue based on deathrattles)

    Nithogg (in my opinion that card is really powerful combined with Corrupt the Waters)

    Deathwing, Mad Aspect (one my favourite Characters in WoW and a strong midrange tool for a tempo based warrior. on top of that tempo warrior is my beloved deck)

    Ancharrr (pirate warrior should be able to stage a comeback thanks to this beauty. I just hope that the archtype doesn't overpower every other deck)

    Dragonqueen Alexstrasza (Highlander support and i like Alex lorewise, just like Ysera)

    Kronx Dragonhoof (like many others i think this card is the MVP of the expansion. Reminds me a lot of Kazakus. Very versatile)

    Frizz Kindleroost ( i highly doubt the powerlevel of the card, but in a highlander oriented dragon decks it will be a good addition)

    Can someone explain to me the economic move of crafting cards before opening the packs? OP said he is doing that. What are the pros of it? Cause im only seeing cons here atm

    So you're consciously using a non optimal strategy in order not to feel bad about having some niche legendaries in your collection?
    I mean, I'd still prefer to maximize my chances and get the most out of my dust, but if that makes you feel better I'm no one to criticize you.

    Yes this way just means you have potentially less choice about the legendaries you end up with - but again no criticism on my part.  Opening packs can be fun and exciting and whatever works for you mate.  Good luck to all with their openings!!!!

    All generalizations are false.

    My list:

    Alex - mana cheat is always viable and this is a smooth fit for highlander hunter

    Kronx - wanna try Galakrond in shaman, rogue and warrior

    Waxadred - count me in on the hopeless optimistic who try to make DR Rogue work

    Probably ancharr, PW looks cool.

    I got the big bundle, 2.300 gold and a bit over 10.000 dust - should work out :-) I won't use that mass-disenchant button this time though. There are lots of seemingly OP cards and Blizzards nerfs are coming quicker these days.

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

    My insta-crafts are always the cards that I think will be prevalent in the meta. Which would mean the following for DoD:

    1) Kronx Dragonhoof

    2) Frizz Kindleroost

    3) Dragonqueen Alexstrasza

     

    As for cards that I'm personally interested in which I might craft:

    1) Dragonrider Talritha (I'll try to make Dragon Paladin work)

    2) Dragonbane (Hero Power Hunter looks interesting)

    3) Ancharrr (Pirate Warrior!)

    I have to say, it's easier to see what stands out as Day 1 crafts this time -- neutral legendaries. It's the middle of the pack class stuff that's going to be the frustrating wait part. Fate Weaver and Kobold Stickyfinger (anti-Ancharrr tech?) are the locks for epics, btw.

    Day 1 Crafts:
    1. Kronx Dragonhoof
    2. Dragonqueen Alexstrasza
    3. Frizz Kindleroost

    High Interest:
    4. Dragonrider Talritha -- Dragon Paladin finally a thing?
    5. Murozond the Infinite-- This is Priest f--kery, which I love
    6. Ysera, Unleashed-- Probably backfires, but Dragon Druid > Aggro Tree Garbage
    7. Zzeraku the Warped-- Does Control Warlock become a thing again?
    8. Valdris Felgorge -- See 7. Maybe just this for handlock, if that becomes viable

    Some Interest:
    9. Waxadred -- Could be an irritating deathrattle deck
    10. Deathwing, Mad --Big board clear; Dragon Warrior a thing? Probably not

    Missing the Cut: Flik Skyshiv; Malygos, Aspect of Magic; Mindflayer Kaahrj, Bandersmosh

    I'm curious to know if I should craft the druid legendaries and epics from Uldum (didn't get any of that stuff).
