    Some classes this year are all over the place from this year's releases. 

    Demon Hunter - Barrens (Deathrattle), Stormwind (Card draw, Fel), Alterac (Big Demon, Token)

    Druid - Barrens (Beast, Nature, Taunt), Stormwind (Hero Attack, Token), Alterac (Ramp, Beast, Choose One)

    These are just two examples but it seems like this across the board. 

    On one hand, it's nice to have plenty of options to create decks. But at the same time, it is frustrating as the continued sprinkle here and there will never make anything super synergistic like Pirate Warrior.

    Frozen Buckler makes more sense now for Captain Galvangar synergy.

    Love big spell discounts with Balinda Stonehearth and Iceblood Tower discounted or cast for free with Clumsy Courier for a big spell centric deck could see some play (still need that one huge spell payoff for this archetype to make it make sense for a control Mage deck).

    I'm in the same boat but I want Winter Fury Malfurion. Hopefully these will eventually head to being purchase with gold or bring back these bundles as individual skins in a year or so. One can hope.

    Yes that is a drawback for sure but most of the time you are using your mulligan to look for Wild Growth and Overgrowth

    Pretty bonkers of a card. And with Druid, 8 mana isn’t really 8 mana as they can get this guy down pretty early. The highroll possibilities for this one is extremely good.

    From the two cards revealed for Hunter so far, going to speculate the quest will revolve around "x amount of friendly minions die" or "summon x amount of beasts".

    That is a win condition for attrition Priest. And with the way Priest can discover resources, should always be able to find the mana cost that they are missing. And really it’s not requiring too much deck construction other than the fact Priest lack card draw. It’s just slow but if there is a class that can play the long game, it would be Priest

    That portrait looks amazing. Was planning on getting the tavern pass this time around and this helps seal it.

    Liv needs to be on these streams here on out. She has been the best Team5 member since Brode.

    Regis was also a great pick. I didn't mind Kibler but nice to see a new face. Would be happy if these is our team this year for reveal streams.

    Efficiency champion right here. Targeted resurrection, Whirlwind effect which in turn is a Frenzy trigger. Damn can’t wait to see what other Frenzy minions we get with this one

    Great with Animated Broomstick but besides that application, don't seeing it work out as well.

    Vulpera Scoundrel saw play. This is very similar if not better as the Poisonous makes it a threat to remove anything.

    Claw Machine isn’t a horrible Mech for N’Zoth. It’s if you took Fireball and Scavenger’s Ingenuity and mashed them together. You don’t get targeted draw but it’s still not a horrible play. Plus bringing it back with N’Zoth would give you a nice defensive answer with a draw

    Very nice support for Spell Shaman as well as a great card for Quest/Highlander Shaman.

    On a side note, is anyone else kinda sad that all the summon animations this expansion all seem to be a swirly cloud of color and nothing exuberant like we have had the last couple of expansions?

    Agree 100%

    Pure Paladin is fun but isn't competitive. However, adding in the dragon package with neutral dragons to Libram Paladin so far seems to work pretty well. Hoping next expansion sees at least one Libram and hopefully another 'Pure' card to help both decks.

    If nothing else, a very good Arena card. Not sure about constructed if it will see any play

    A deck that runs Tip the Scales is going to want to run Prismatic Lens and have few spells to insure this gets reduced. Could be a really solid deck build for that turn 5 follow up

    Combo I’m going to try out with expansion:

    -Reduce King Krush to 3 mana at some point before turn 10.

    -Turn 10 play Emeriss

    -Next turn, 16/16 Krush + Faceless Manipulator for 32 face damage
