    Probably the first one, although I am not sure as I can't see in the future.

    I feel this on very spiritual level.

    I definitely agree with you: in my opinion, some interactions are so powerful that the mode just loses depth.

    I think it's not a matter of card pool, but rather of balancing overall: feeling like you're in a dungeon run with treasures and crazy synergies is cool and all, but at the end of the day you should prevent some blatantly broken stuff like Outlander or Dark Arts

    If you mean off-meta Wild rising decks it is quite difficult for a number of reasons:

    1. The three decks above were provided by HSReplay's own internal data.
    2. Wild meta is particularly harsh right now, and it does not allow new decks to successfully flourish (for example, Secret Mage does not have a clear counter but just 50/50 matchups at worst).

    However, if you're looking for off-meta Wild decks in general, then our Frosty always posts an article for the weekend (next one coming very soon) and I am currently making a Wild Class Spotlight series (Druid and Priest so far; next one will be... eheh guess we'll have to wait).

    Yeah Face Hunter is also rising, but it's not a "new" deck in the true meaning of the word: Phase Stalker is one hell of a card after all.

    Yes: Skipper into Armorsmith into a bunch of small crap means a huge ton of armor.

    In Wild you cannot run the same armor package, but you have Tank Up! and you could try something like this:

    I appreciate the kind words - making people enjoy the game in their own way is probably the main reason why I keep looking for off-meta decks every single day.

    Hope you'll have fun some funny Duel! pulls!

    On the other hand, that would be two dead draws against all other matchups.

    I mean: if you really want to bully Mages then yes, it's a good inclusion; otherwise I think one should be enough.

    I think Rune Dagger could do wonders with Ras Frostwhisper in a potential post-rotation Control Shaman: being able to get Spell Damage at will is insane when you have effects like Ras' one.

    The support is definitely not here yet and it will take a lot for my idea to be viable, but still...

    I don't even play MTG but there's no way I ignore a good word search.

    As a standalone card yes, but if you look at the deck's game plan and what it's trying to accomplish I think the answer is no.

    Evocation is very good in Cyclone Mage - however, Ike modified this list so that the matchup against Shaman will be better.

    Against Thrall you don't need value: you're trying to stall and survive.

     

    Again, Evocation is not a bad card: it's just that it's not very good in this particular list.

    Man, at this pace by spring I won't have any shoes to walk into.

    I have to be honest: this skin radiates vibes that any other Priest skin has ever had, and you can't just ignore that.

    I'd say 1st place ex aequo with King Anduin, even though I think the 1k one is still a little bit better.

    Yep, second Frostbolt is probably the best sub.

    And I have to say: he's doing a pretty damn good job so far.
