Yeah. Cairne is also a weird inclusion.
Paladin is strong for sure, but I really dislike No Minion Mage. I really hope that people will get seduced by the idea of getting full dust and disenchant Lunacy, and the deck loses its popularity.
Refreshing Spring Water is the most problematic card imo. I know it's hard to balance card games while trying to print exciting cards, but that card was a mistake. I'd like to see it get hit in the next round of nerfs.
I'll save you the trouble and tell the summary of tournament:
Draw your whole deck for 0 mana, remove all enemy minions, summon random minions and give them +10/10
Cast spells on minions and it's a miracle! (That's not so bad, but it's gonna happen a lot for sure)
Let's get the GM over with and see the nerfs.
Here I've added Warmaul Challenger and Conditioning to be included. They usually run ETC as one of the win conditions.
I've seen streamers play Handbuff Warrior and Warmaul Challenger performed really well. It works so well with +2/+2 buff. If you consider a non-budget deck, I would check those decks.
I'm fine to play against aggro. One can actually remove minions, play around things against aggro, but it's like impossible against Lunacy Mage. Mana cheat, random spells, 0 cost draw are not fun to play against, especially with the majority of good spells in Standard right now.
It was a highroll deck back in the day, now it's more consistent. I don't say it's very consistent, but no deck ever is.
You can't play a slow deck, because that "control" deck will start sending Fireballs, Apexis Blasts and Eyes to your face, or even Turn 6 Nagrand Slam, followed by another Nagrand Slam.
Yes, it is refreshing to be able to play games. I've just played against the same deck 7 times in a row.
Smart move by Blizzard, selling an alternative skin for the most played class atm. They can then nerf the class next week lol
Lock and Load Hunter is actually decent and very fun to play. Beast Hunter is not bad either.
Next up is to remove Pen Flinger from all formats. Let's keep our hopes up.
Maybe you've opened the one from Tavern Brawl?
That doesn't look like an OTK deck. Do you mean TTK? It may be an OTK if the opponent concedes in the same turn lol
I got the non-golden bundle which came with 2 legendaries. I was aiming for Sylvanas and Ragnaros I dusted years ago. Didn't get them, but I had other legendaries missing. Then I ended up crafted them anyway (Classic is fun).
Today I've received 6400 dust. I don't know why it's that much, not that I complain lol. Did they compensate the dust I used to craft them or did Blizzard get generous? Can't be the latter, it can't be.
Samuro is also "free" if you decide to buy the Tavern Pass :)
I see only 3 new legendaries. Overlord Runthak is in Core set, you've probably mistaken it.
Rokara is not crucial, I think. Saurfang and Samuro looks good in this deck.
They could make it "at the start of each turn", but since the portal is permanent and can't be removed, it is probably too strong.
18 damage worth of stats every turn looks great, and control decks will run out of AoE eventually. Fatigue can be the real enemy. I'll definitely try it out, I like Warlock and meme decks, but most probably it's not a Tier 1 deck.
I don't believe Self-Mill Warlock is gonna work, but if anyone considers trying it out, I would suggest adding Envoy Rustwix. It would be great to shuffle Primes into your deck after Neeru Fireblade, delay some fatigue damage and get Primes. There is a chance of Envoy Rustwix getting milled, but that's not your win condition anyway.
Congrats to winners and thanks for this fun event. I've really farmed those tickets and ended up with 19 of them lol.
Thanks to the event, we've had some nice discussions with fellow users. I feel like I know every one of the cards, even the fillers, and I'm more hyped for the expansion.
There are many cool cards, even the most of the common cards are fine. I don't think of any super broken card. A balanced expansion, I'd say.
At the hero selection of Create Deck, there is a button on top right to change format, similar to the one in Play. You don't need to choose format before going into My Collection. This crucial button is not easy to see, I would agree.
You're right. I don't play Wild at all, not used to it lol
