    That feeling when you go on a 10-game winning streak to end the day, waylaying and massacring Mages and Priests along the way. Feelsgoodman

    Man, I just experienced one of the best games as a Thief Priest for a long time. Please excuse the lack of screenshots.

    So, starting off, I got matched with Togwaggle Druid and suddenly I turned into the infamous Priest version of it (well, almost):

    https://i.imgur.com/WQE46ho.pnghttps://i.imgur.com/UZ3285u.png

    The funny thing is, I don't even have Murozond in my collection.

    Right after my turn ended, the opponent felt threatened and they decided to pull off their own combo. At that time Raza and Anduin were still in my deck, so after many turns my druid opponent used my win-condition against me. Here's the twist though - I won at the end through the clever usage of King's Ransom from Chameleos, then the original copy in my hand (in order to answer the enemy Murozond's battlecry) and finally Murozond himself (in order to answer the King's Ransom in the opponent's hand). I also found some healing from the Cobalt Spellkin; the opponent couldn't generate enough pressure and conceded.

    I had some very interesting games versus Burn Mage - three, to be exact. In 2 of those I survived thanks to copying their Ice Blocks and I beat my opponents by either playing Reno Jackson or a Seanced Cloud Prince. In the third game I went for Aluneth, because I wanted to draw my healing and AoE spells on time, and Chameleos turned into a Fireball, which helped me close the game.

    The last game before reaching Diamond was against Odd Demon Hunter. Nothing too exciting happened there - I managed to draw Reno pretty early, so the win was in the bag. However he wasn't the reason why my opponent rage quit. On turn 5 I was forced to play Madame Lazul, because the opponent had used Mana Burn. I found Eye Beam and took it. A couple of turns later the opponent had a sticky, wide board, which I managed to clear thanks to Mass Hysteria and the aforementioned DH spell. When that happened, they went afk.

    Ah man, I can only imagine the expression on my opponent's faces, when they see me winning thanks to their own cards. The feeling of trolling them is glorious.

    Played wild  burgle rogue, against a warrior that recently went full galakrond putting a 5/7 Risky Skipper down, I'm mostly out of health and have a neglible boardpresence.  Without many other options, I slam down my Tess Greymane, which summons a Rotface and a Security Rover. Instead of clearing his Risky Skipper, he plays Leeroy Jenkins, and the Risky Skipper clears the 2 Whelps. - No additional summons, since momentarily there were 7 minions. instead of using the hurt Leroy, he then plays Bloodsworn Mercenary, which copies the hurt Reno, till Risky Skipper kills them both, and summons a Security Bot and a random legendary for me.  Since there is none of his mana left to sabotage himself, he then concedes.

    Making it a winstreak of 6 with a greedy meme deck!

    Aw man, today was a good day for stealing. 4 of my games were kinda average, but I had a glorious game versus Dude Paladin. Check it out:

    Turn 1: Psychic Conjurer into Air Raid.

    -> Opponent passes.

    Turn 2: I play the spell.

    -> Opponent plays Righteous Protector and uses The Coin to HP.

    Turn 3: Thoughtsteal into Stand Against Darkness and Level Up!, then I use Forbidden Words on the 1/1 Taunt and trade my Conjurer with the opponent's dude.

    -> Opponent plays Warhorse Trainer.

    Turn 4: I play the second Air Raid.

    Turn 7: Soul Mirror cuz why not. I needed more buffs for my guys anyway.

    -> Opponent equips Vinecleaver and kills a guy.

    When you steal two Ice Blocks from a Secret Mage and recover afterwards. #Feelsgoodman

    Show Spoiler

    Tbh I won that game, only because:

    a) I was extremely lucky (e.g. me copying Ice Blocks and Netherwind Portal summoning Arena Treasure Chest, while the opponent was desperately trying to find 3 damage to kill me);

    b) the opponent did some fatal mistakes (like playing Cloud Prince as a 4/4 body instead of saving it after popping my block);

    c) their deck was kinda weak. They ran Mirror Entity-ies instead of Duplicates, which got countered by my 1-drops.

    Still, the game was really intense. After receiving two Ice Blocks, I tried to use them in a such way to gain as much time as possible. I got rewarded with Zephrys the Great and a Healing Touch. Then the mage played a bunch of 2 mana minions and I decided to play super safe and used Psychic Scream. I would like to clarify some things - I had other options like Flame Ward (Chameleos) and Soul Mirror and my opponent was deep in fatigue, but I knew one of their secrets was Netherwind Portal, so I didn't want to leave two minions on the board and risk getting killed. Fortunately for me, the aforementioned secret low-rolled and that was the final nail in the coffin.

    Disco Lock no longer works in my current meta bubble but I still wanted to grind Guldan wins, so I switched to Cube Lock. I had forgotten how satisfying it feels when you win a game just by playing Skulking Geist

    Double the pride, double the fall.

    I'd like to share a hilarious battlegrounds game where the top 3 was me playing pirates against two murloc players. I had two Cap'n Hoggarrs which allowed me to buy any pirate for free (if I also sold them afterwards) while also buffing my golden Salty Looter to astronomic proportions. Both of my opponents had a lot of health left so the game kept going for quite a while, and for some reason neither of them seemed to be getting any Gentle Megasaurs. When I got to tavern six however, I decided that it should stay that way when I immediately found myself some megasaurs:

    And lo and behold, the last remaining opponent did not get a megasaur and my big fat pirates were able to carry me to victory!

    Them: Control Cubelock

    Me: Aladdin Paladin (Aggro Highlander)

    I start 2nd against their Kobold Librarian, I manage to setup a couple of tokens + Never Surrender!: they don't play Defile. I keep building tokens and pinging face at each turn

    Then at t-3 after their Sense Demons, I put in place Infectious Sporeling. They play Voidcaller nonetheless (probably because they had Skull ready), and get punished hard. 

    He plays Skull of the Man'ari, I play Acidic Swamp Ooze.

    Then I can't remember their t-6 but it was irrelevant, I play Sunkeeper Tarim and win.

    I had the perfect hand (yet I didn't even play Highlander cards, which is kinda sad in the face of my homebrew purposes), but so did they, and I won. D3 conquered.

    Sometimes I actually feel like a good player.

    Just had a long battleground game, the last 5 games against the same opponent - from a perfect winstreak of 11 I was beaten 4 times in a row by a golden Monstrous Macaw and Selfless Hero as well as some cheap poisonous murlocs,  before finally getting gentle megasaurus - and the options were: +1/+1, +3 Attack and Deathrattle: summon 2 Seedlings. And this deathrattle then won me the game, with an influx of small 1/1 to beat the divine shields.

    Finally. Fucking finally. After so many failed attempts, Chameleos finally turned into Time Warp. Luckily for me my opponent didn't have an Ice Block, so I defeated them on the following turn.

    Take two:

    https://i.imgur.com/3onvaxd.png

    Archmage Vargoth and Time Warp (Chameleos) in hand.

    https://i.imgur.com/85a22zZ.png

    FYI, I specifically chose Vargoth from Drakonid Operative's battlecry just for this specific outcome. It wasn't certain, but that's why sometimes you have to go for the memes and the game delivered them.

    At the end of my bonus turns, I was left with this:

    https://i.imgur.com/ylNr01E.png

    Both Alex were copied by Archbishop Benedictus. The opponent's upgraded hero power cast Vanish, so that's why you see him in hand. Anyway, I won at the end. :P It wasn't in ranked, but still very satisfying.

    Very general pepper, but I'm really enjoying playing the new solo adventure! The rhyming does grow a little tedious, but I find myself actually shouting "GO, GO" at the characters in my head ... and aloud ...

    Started playing HS in May, 2015. The bad news: I missed the excitement of 'Naxx out?' and GvG. The good news: I never met an Undertaker.

    I was missing Spiritsinger Umbra for a few months now. To make things worse, I'm stupid and used to dust my rotating cards so I have basically zero Ungoro legendarys. Nevertheless, I decided to buy some packs with gold, 3 Ungoros among them. First pack: boom! Spiritsinger Umbra. It's really crazy because that worked with Bloodreaver Gul'dan a few weeks ago as well. 

    Double the pride, double the fall.

    Highlander Demon Hunter in Wild is just hilarious. Nobody expects Illidan to run Reno or N'Zoth. I just out controlled a Raza Priest who died by fatigue damage. 

    You should really try it, it's super fun and the win rate is good enough (I'd say around 50% at diamond 3). It wasn't my invention, I stumbled upon it on that other site.

     

    Double the pride, double the fall.

    Accidentally hit Legend for the second time ever by playing Highlander Hunter. 

    This was much more satisfying way to hit legend instead of using Demon Hunter. 

    Hunter has always been my favorite class, and I have been playing Highlander Hunter long before it became cool in SoU. Hitting legend with a T2 deck made me feel like it was actually my knowledge of the deck and the meta that got me to legend, instead of just pushing the broken DH aggro train.

    Had some fantastic matches, won unfavored matches by playing my mulligan's right and knowing what my outs for those matches were. Had a few epic close matches too that were some of the best games played all expansion. 

    Final boss was a mirror match, that I drew really badly, yet I still was able to squeak out the win by knowing when to apply the pressure. 

    Just feels good to hit legend with my favorite class instead of with the predetermined king of the meta.

    Just played some Disco lock on Wild ladder (Diamond 3) and played a game vs a Reno Priest, which I can pretty much only win if I steam roll them down fast and hard. 

    I high rolled like mad, getting him down to 7 health by turn 5. He clears the board. I have two Fist of Jaraxxus in hand (created by my first Expired Merchant), and top deck my second Expired Merchant, giving me lethal with the pair of Fist of Jaraxxus.

    After the match, I received a friend request. I usually don't add people, as I got tired of being told to die and eat shit all the time. But this time, I felt satisfied enough with my beat down that I thought laughing at an angry person would be fun. 

    Instead, I add my opponent and he sends me a really nice message telling me good game and that he had Reno in hand to play on curve (as I assumed he did, because Reno Priest always has Reno on curve, unless I'm playing the deck). 

    It was a nice, pleasant and very unexpected surprise to be talked to like an actual human being. Maybe I'll add people more often now.

    After losing around 4-5 games in a row with my Lockdown Shudderman deck, I faced Bomb Warrior and was always at the brink of death.

    The game was in turn 10, 4 bombs in my deck and a Mine from Iron Juggernaut, he still had 1 Wrenchcalibur and 2 Hoard Pillagers.

    He played Blastmaster Boom, and I responded with Volcano and healed to 20 with Murmuring Elemental and Antique Healbot, then played Boompistol Bully (Thanks for the discounts via an unkilled Emperor Thaurissan)

    I was already Hagatha the Witch, he had 54 health in total, I was really fudged with an inactive Reno in hand... Hagatha gave me Eureka! + another Healing Wave... I played both... Eureka! put Kobold Stickyfinger on the board, and Healing wave showed Platebreaker, healing me for 14.

    After seeing the combo, it seems that this warrior realized that well... If I was lucky enough, I was going to win for sure, so... Conceded!

    It's not the greatest game I had, but man... I felt really satisfied when I could theoretically counter every single thing he throwed at me!

     

    Heh, Greetings.

    I had back-to-back early Baku the Mooneater turns last night. 

    First matchup, my Priest opponent plays Dirty Rat on turn 2, pulling Baku from my hand. Thanks for the 2-mana 7/8, man!

    Second matchup, another Priest opponent plays Deathlord on turn 2, I kill it next turn and pulls Baku from my deck. Thanks for the 3-mana 7/8, dude!
