I took a pause from hearthstone because my patience reached the lowest peak with it, but today i wanted to see the news; the first thing appearing in front of my eyes:
i guess the pause will be longer than expected
I don't think this card is that bad, you still draw your card every turn, so maybe it will find a home as a top end in an aggro/burn deck.
Will i be happy if it will see play? Not at all
I said i don't like to play this kind of decks, dying versus aggro decks without doing nothing it's one of the main reasons.
That said, i don't see what changes from the same ramp deck right now, it does nothing the first 2 turns and plays wyrding stones on turn 3.
Not only that, but apparently you can choose to play different cards when playing versus different kind of decks, and not following the same scheme every game
Playing this card on turn 5 means you have 8 mana for the next turn and ot helps drawing a 8 mana card to almost secure you have something huge to play.
I think this card is very strong because you can pass two turns (and have 3 spell mana), play wyrding stones on turn 3, play this on turn 4 and have an 8 mana play on turn 5.
I'm not a fan of ramping decks, in general i'm not a fan of decks that require to draw specific things early otherwise they have already lost; but i can see this card being played
I'd hate the card if it was strong, but it's a 7 effective mana do nothing, so i'm ok with it; it's just a meme card to have some fun.
i'll probably even try it
Yesterday i thought i had 3 quests so i started the game, but i've found that i only had 2 quest.
I was very very very happy that i didn't have to play the game, this tells a lot about the state of the game.
This message is just a reminder that Guardian Animals is going to stay in standard for an year and a half
My opponent played Geppetto as soon as he reached 8 mana (like turn 5), there is no need to say that he played guardian animals the turn before.
Geppetto drawn both Alex and Maly.
I'm dead the turn after.... Cool.
i just went on twitch to watch some games and Thijs, RDU and Orange are playing the exact same druid deck with maly.
I don't think there is much more to add
edit: apparently Feno too
Already tired of the new expansion.
Losing to random bullshit isn't fine, your opponent gk rogue shouldn't win when they don't have anymore cards in hand and are almost in fatigue. But they find a draconic lackey who gives them DQ alex (i swear is the most discovered card against me) so they win i guess; nice deck the first hour of the new expansion by the way.
Also, how it is possible that in the first hour i played the same druid deck 4 times (in like 7 games i had)? Do people know that if you don't play a tier 1 deck your account will not be erased, your cards will not be disenchanted and a blizzard employee will not come to your house to tell you you suck?
Two games in a row: my opponent highlander hunter's transfer student obviously had the discover a dragon effect (which gave him the 2/3 poisonus dragon who discovered alex DQ) and my opponent galakrond rogue's transfer student had add a lackey to your hand who gave my opponent enough tempo to win the game (she even got an 8/8 from evolving miscreant).
I can't wait for the new set... What? Transfer student is from the new set? Nevermind then
Someone has to explain to me how dragon hunters have the best hand everytime... Oh, i'm mistaken, apparently all of them are highlander hunters because they play Brann on turn 7 for the lethal, how do they draw so well with a 1-of deck that makes me believe its a completely different deck until turn 7?
Me: "how many more times my highlander rogue opponents will get Reno from dragon's hoard?"
Few months ago: "at least we will never see a worse lauch day than this one with galakrond shaman"
Blizzard: "hold my vengeance"
Luna's pocket galaxy is the worst thing ever, can't wait for it to leave standard.
Urgh the hero power completely destroyed the card for me.
Not because is bad, the card is actually good: the battlecry is amazing, and the random spell every turn is in general good.
I hate the fact that this card is pure RNG after is played and that being good will probably see play (exact same problem i have with dq Alexstrasza, the card is so good that obviously see play, but the outcomes are too many and too different). I don't think that hearthstone needs any more random effects so big, have you tried for example to play a control deck versus highlander (more highroller) rogues? Is impossible, you can't play around anything, because some cards will cost zero and you will not be able to tell which ones until is too late, they generate random lackey that generates random things themselves, they even generate random cards from other classes as well, when you lose you feel bad because what you did didn't matter at all, if you win is because your opponent didn't highroll.
Too bad, i was hyped for this one card.
Discover mechanic give you only cards of your current class and neutral
I already hate all my skilled opponents that will draw both of them in their starting hand togheter with a 1 mana cost pirate. I think this card is super strong 5/5.
Aggressive decks want to play something on turn 1. Not always they do have enough things that they want to run at that cost, in those cases they can put this card as an early pressure.
Is not super strong, but has his merit in my opinion
if only there were more dragons good versus slower decks i'd say that this is a good card, too bad the only target which seems worth is the 5/4 untergettable. In paladin can be nice versus aggro if you hit the lifesteal explorer. I don't think this is what dragon decks need to pressure control and combo decks
