    How's everyone spending their last few games before RoS is live, if you are playing at all? I've been having fun with OTK priest thanks to the early legendary and it's pretty fun to set up a board of archmages to cast a barrage of Mind Blasts. IveI got the list i am using, and an idea of how i may attempt to play it in the new standard year.

    In a similar vein to OP, I had some fun with a netdecked Wild big priest using Vargoth instead of Barnes. It felt pretty unfair to hit him with Shadow Essence or resurrect effects!

    Besides that I've just been playing meta decks to complete quests so I can quickly get back to theorycrafting, heh. But full elemental shaman is pretty cool, with a suprising amount of interesting decisions for such a straightforward style of deck; mostly from deciding when to use Bog Slosher or Fire Plume Harbinger, as well as the discover mechanic always making me happy!

    I always have a lot of decks during spoiler season if you want some ideas; remember, most of the internet would not function if there weren't plenty of users willing to volunteer their time to provide content and assistance for one another!

    - I also tried out a wild big/resurrection-priest and had a blast with Archmage Vargoth + Eternal Servitude + Resurrect and so on, building a full board with sweet end of turn minions that re-cast whichever spell i pick that current turn -

    - Lots of potential in that Archmage Vargoth... -

     

    - Can't wait to make me a fullblown bomb-warrior when Rise of Shadows go live! -

    - :o)

    Not much today but I have tried to give some love to decks that will not be powerful anymore when they leave standard: odd secret mage and odd warrior. They did not work out very well for me, though.

    I'm playing Vargoth-Wall Priest. I have an idea for a Recurring Villain Undertaker deck for after launch, but it's still  a work in progress.

    I'm playing a Mage Quest+Vargoth+Molten Reflections+Drakkari Enchanter+Cinderstorm OTK deck.

    I saw Toast playing it and had to try it out myself

    Maybe I'll make an Shuffle Rogue Deck with Tak.

    Tried out Archmage Vargoth in Gallery Priest... I guess Resurrect Priest won’t stay dead for long after the rotation hits :D

    Then wanted to have some fun with Gonk Druid in casual but quit after the fifth try hard net deck in a row. I really hope someone will find a way to may Gonk consistently work someday

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

    I am doing the same as op.

    I had a similar idea on post nerf otk priest but I would do -2 seance (can't copy enemies anyway) -1 stegodon (why instead of infiltrator), -1 vivid nightmare (don't need 2 I think) and I would do +1 zilliax ( will save you so many times) +1 infiltrator and +2 scheme (gets you to the late game and combo with the power word)

    I am hoping to open the couple legendaries and the other additions I'll need to play this Bomb Warrior deck!  It's a slight variation of the one Kripp was highlighting during the streamer event with him, Toast, Kibler, etc.

    The main differences are the inclusion of Barista Lynchen because I'm an elder Millennial who needs his coffee, and because if these bomb shuffling battlecries are important enough to include 2x Youthful Brewmaster why not have a card that can bounce a copy of your battlecry minions to your hand while leaving them on the board?

    The other main difference is the inclusion of 1x Warpath to help combat aggro match ups, as well as to kill off my own Boom Bot army for a potential lethal play.

    Quick!  Someone give me something clever to write here.

    Well this was some of my thought process i guess when i put the cards together:

    • i haven't actually played cloning gallery before so i am unsure if it summons only one copy if you have two copies in your deck, or not, so i wanted to include 5 minions. otherwise i would probably swap it for infiltrator, although it's nice to have high health minions in priest sometimes.

    • vivid nightmare is extremely good for pulling off clutch otk combos, especially with more limited options for copying minions in standard without using other minions to clutter your graveyard. it costs only 3 mana so you can get yourself an extra Prophet Velen or Malygos before playing your Mind Blasts for example. also great if you want to multiply Archmage Vargoth for whatever reason (mind blast artillery)

    • I wanted to include only the minions that can enable an OTK with mind blast and a couple taunt minions to make removing them more costly. i am thinking now however that i don't want to have too many variables because mass resurrectBADCARDNAME can only resurrect 3 minions, and it could all be the same one potentially. I want to have a very high chance of summoning Vargoth with that card, so it will be cast twice. I'll probably remove the stegodon.

    • seance seemed worth running at the time with options being limited not for copy spells but now that you mention the Lazul's Scheme i realize i completely overlooked that card and it could be very good to have, especially since i expect to be holding cards a while

    • i probably still won't run Zilliax for now to limit different minions in my deck but i really have no idea how the meta is going to play out tomorrow =D

    • cloning gallery summons each minion, so if you have 2 infiltrators it will summon 2 of them.

    • yes vivid nightmare is very good. But you generally only use it for combo (and 1 is than generally enough) However now that I think of it I would probably swap one cloning gallery for vivid nightmare (also great to copy an infiltrator and/or zilliax
    • I wanted to include only the minions that can enable an OTK with mind blast and a couple taunt minions to make removing them more costly. i am thinking now however that i don't want to have too many variables because can only resurrect 3 minions, and it could all be the same one potentially.

    • yes I understand. However you will need enough early game to survive.
    • seance seemed worth running at the time with options being limited not for copy spells but now that you mention the Lazul's Scheme i realize i completely overlooked that card and it could be very good to have, especially since i expect to be holding cards a while

    • my thoughts exactly
    • i probably still won't run Zilliax for now to limit different minions in my deck but i really have no idea how the meta is going to play out tomorrow =D
    • yes I understand. I have found that zilliax alone has saved me so many times when playing otk priest I would probably even switch an infiltrator for him if you need a spot. Agro and especially heal is very important. But as you said you never know what the meta will become ;-)

    I totally forgot about the new priest legendary that summons a minion that died at the end of turn. That will most likely be worth an inclusion. I would probably swap out power word shield. Earliest you can play it is t6 anyway

    Getting one last Cannon Barrage in Even Rogue off

    Finishing my opponent with one last Dragoncaller Alanna

    And most important of all

    One last dance in the disco

    Goodbye Discolock, guess I have a reason to play Wild after all

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.
