    I just managed to get three Battleground achievements at once, the last of which I NEVER even hoped for achieving:

    1) Wrath of the Windlord (Win with Al'Akir)

    2) Little Fish in a Big Tavern (Win Tier 4 or lower)

    3) Spicy Pretzel Mustard (Win while winning every round)

    PS: Poisonous Murlocs with Divine Shield and Windfury are your friend :)

    I'm feeling good today. I finally managed to crawl past the 1,000-win barrier for that Demonic Illidan portrait, and then an hour later I get a G'huun the Blood God from my tavern brawl pack.

    Won against Odd Warrior today with Even Mage. It felt like an impossible feat with a deck that mostly relies on HP to burn, but I didn't want to give up.

    After all standard armor and aoe bullshit (and a lot of button pressing from both of us), he pretty much exhausted most of removal, except for Reckless Flurry and his equipped 1/2 Supercollider. I fatigued, and then played my Maiev Shadowsong + Coldarra Drake combo, along with 0-mana Frost Giant. Giant got 1 hit, he couldn't clear with Collider because of Dormant minion, so he was forced to flurry next turn, losing 17 armor. Then he armored up as best as he could, but ended up on 29 effective life, when my dragon woke up :)

    Does your even mage have Potion of Illusion? In terms of combo potential it is a lot better than Maiev since you can use it on Coldarra Drake to kill your opponent and only have to wait 1 turn instead of 2. It also works well with Astromancer Solarian, Reckless Apprentice, and if your lucky even Mordresh Fire Eye.

    Hey Kansas, thanks for the idea. I don't have it in deck, since I'm running minion-heavy version, mainly to be able to use Book of Specters as a draw engine and Starscryer to tutor Wildfire or Book early. Don't even run Fireball for that reason. I could try Potion later in a different version, sounds fun! :)

    Edit: also, thanks for the reminder that Solarian exists, I forgot about him since the nerf. He should be good since the draw power is high

    I've seen two decks this morning that I'd like to try out. The first one is BloodMefist's Memes and Dreams deck of the week, Menagerie Taunt Druid. The second one is a Deletelock for Wild which therottedzombie posted on twitter. Here are the lists:

    When I copied them to my collection, I noticed that I was short of Plaguemaw the Rotting, 1 Dirty Rat and 1 Barrens Scavenger, so I sadly deleted the Druid deck and decided to buy 5 Barrens packs to fish for the Scavenger because I knew I had almost all epics already. Lo and behold, out pops not only the wanted Barrens Scavenger, but also Plaguemaw! Thanks Yogg!

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

    Going for the caravan achievement against a Big Priest and the game got... weird.

    Keep in mind: the only minions in my deck are the two original copies of Soothsayer's Caravan.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    It feels so good when your off meta deck with obscure cards like Light's Sorrow and Bolvar, Fireblood executes its gameplan perfectly. No regrets crafting either of them!

    Wow, this has been the most enjoyable Hearthstone day for me in the entire Barrens expansion. I have been trying to make a fun Shudderwock shaman deck for months and have been failing, but finally today was a breakthrough. Made a deck that destroys the opponent’s entire hand and deck as early as turn 9 and got it to work multiple times. Something about seeing the opponent with no hand deck or board on their turn so early in the game is hilarious to me. This is why I love wild, so many cards to play with and eventually some combination of old and new cards can lead to a lot of fun.

    Would you mind sharing your deck? I have also been trying to make shudderwock shaman work for a while and found a decent build with a 57% winrate in the middle ranks of wild.

    Hi KANSAS, sure, here it is. I tried to put in some insights about playing it in the guide. 

    57% winrate is pretty good, I think your deck is a lot better than this one competitively. This deck is more for fun trying to get the feeling of destroying the opponent's hand and deck early in the game, I think Lifedrinker is probably the most competitive option for Shudderwock decks right now. The name is Vacuum Shaman since it feels like you're sucking all the cards out of their hand and deck.

    It's still pretty new so if you have any ideas on how to improve it I would appreciate them!

    There's no better feeling than clapping an uninteractive deck like Weapon Rogue.

    Arena with Shaman. Turn 4: Coin + Shadow Hunter Vol'jin, target Hog Rancher to swap it with my Scrapyard Colossus in hand. It was silenced right away but I still won a few turns later.

    My other targets in hand were 2X Smug Senior and a Pen Flinger. So it was 25% chance of complete misplay but I was lucky this time. :)

    I love Mutanus the Devourer already. A turn later, my opponent burned his Lord Jaraxxus with Altar of Fire. No more win conditions for you lol

    Looks like this murloc's gonna be a meta staple, particularly for control decks. So many archetypes are just dependent on single cards that eating them with Mutanus is game-changing. Cards like N'Zoth, God of the Deep, Inara Stormcrash, Lady Anacondra, Alexstrasza the Life-Binder, Tenwu of the Red Smoke...

    I love Mutanus too just tried him in decks today but he’s already one of my favorite cards of all time.


    Update Jun 26 nice board clear

    Not Hearthstone related (yet?) but I just managed to purchase a PS5 :)))

    Played rush warrior, went unfavorable against nzoth priest

    My opponent played 5x Wave of Apathy, 2x Soul Mirror, soul mirrored my Tresh despite me playing around it all day he happened to discover one at that exact moment, healed up to full from 10 health once, ate my Nzoth via his Mutanus, and my Alex was at the bottom 8 of my cards (had I drawn it I would have won twice over)

    This, my friends, is why everyone hates priest.

    And this is also why it feels so good when you still managed the win despite all the bs.
