    Finally! I quite like arena, but I'm not good enough to actually justify spending gold there.

    Extremely helpful, thank you! 

    But why the Masters Tour Orgrimmar rewards Phoenix and not Barrens Packs is beyond me.

    Seems like a good deal, but right now none of the Barrens legendaries are deck defining or must crafts. So 20 packs for 20 $/€ seems most suitable for people who have large gaps in most of these expansions. If after the nerfs a few of the Barren legendaries prove to be great, maybe this will turn to be a great deal.

    So... Deck of Lunacy, Sword of the Fallen, Pen Flinger and [Hearthstone Card (Far Watch Tower) Not Found]. But what are the other two? Rogue is to my knowledge third best right now, so this would be a preventative nerf like for Dinotamer Brann. A propos of nerfs: he wrote 6 changes, not 6 nerfs. So one change could actually make a card more playable, helping an archetype out? Like nerfing Lunacy mage to the ground, but making hero power mage better.

    Cool! One card pack and one tavern pass more! Really upgraded the rewards! (extra golden cards is almost no value for commons and rares if they can't be disenchanted.)

    Great deck! Even without Eys'or, I'm currently 5-0 with it.

    Looks solid, but what about Yriel? Wouldn't she be a good fit too?

    The stories are barely connected,Jaina does appear, as does Thrall, but there is no prior knowledge required to understand the story. It isn't explicitly mentioned that the pop-up Jaina that appears in fight 3 belongs to the alliance, but that's the only thing I could think of.

    Just also wanted to brag:got two legendaries from the four packs!

    Even though I lack Patches, I tried the Kingsbane deck and climbed - with only one loss- from bronze 10 to silver 1. This deck is crazy strong, especially Ship's Cannon performs great!

    Sadly, Reno Jackson's Hero power worked the same way as before for me.

    This deck has a winrate above the 0.something % to pull this off? Congrats for that!

    With spells I find this justified. Chaining spells after each other is not really interactive and prolongs turns needlessly. But I'm kind of sad that I can't discover Explorer dragons from explorer dragons anymore, they were so cute and mostly the best option too.

    So, I toke note of all possible heropowers, and since a lot of them summons for you, or stalls your opponent, I made a token druid. I am 3-0 with it, even one against Kael'thas Druid, and a control priest whose spell cost was reduced by 3.

    (summon 3 whelps, , summon Tron, summon 2 2/1, , summon 3/3, one damage per enemy minion+summon slimes, random spell from opponents class, random destroy enemy minion, random Sap,  summon minion from deck, draw card and get 1 mana)

    18 recent packs and 14 from earlier expansions is worse than collecting your gold and spending it at once at the expansion release. Sure, you may get more in total- assuming 10G per 3 won games stays- but you won't have the cards for the whole expansion life time, which will make especially the start of each expansion worse, since you only get to buy around 40 packs then, so you'll be more reliant on crafting.

    Nice review as always! I'm kinda sad that there were no evolve effects, since they would have been a great fit for magical experimentation.

    Okay, that's a lot of math you did there, but not entirely enough. I'll explain what you could do there. (wrote a statistic test just yesterday and haven't gotten it out of my system yet)

    Show Spoiler
    To get the actual probability you have to compute:P(x)=1-(1-your probability for card of cost x)³.

    So the probability to not get a card of this mana cost to the power of three - the probability to not get any card of this mana cost in your 3 choices. And then you substract the number from 1 to get the probability for at least one of this cost.

    In an example, let's take compute the probability for at least one  card of cost 3: For one card, the p. to not get one of cost 3 is: 72.73%. 0.7273³=0.3847 1-0.3847=0.6153. So the probability to get a card of cost 3 is: 61.53%

    So I'll just do all the math, okay? Feel free to take it or leave it.

    CardcostProbability for at least one discover option
    10.5652
    20.5109
    30.6153
    40.2487
    50.2487
    60.0882
    70.0882

    Was expecting to see a recipe here, where you bake exactly that.
