    Does anyone know if they tinkered with the progression at all compared to the last event? Last time I bought the pass only to figure out getting everything wasn't really doable within the time I wanted to spend on the game. Has this changed?

    I can understand the nerf to turtle mage as the deck is just super unfun to lose to. But the rest of the meta was, again, so good. No top tier decks and like 7/10 classes had highly competitive decks. Druid really didn't feel like it needed another nerf this early.

    Quest mage is easily countered by any aggressive deck. It's unfun to play against, sure, but not a meta tyrant.

    Darkglare warlock, on the other hand, was reaching a point where its worst matchup is the mirror, akin to sn1p-sn4p warlock back in the days.

    This nerf was absolutely necessary for the wild metagame's health.

    Tempo storm has never been a good meta indicator. They're not very reliable or accurate.

    vS just came out with their report and standard seems to be extremely healthy right now with not a single deck being tier 1 at top legend. More than 8 classes all have competitive tier 2 decks which seems unprecedented. I wonder if these standard balance changes were a little too early. 

    The wild one (Darkglare) was much needed though, so I'm really glad about that one.

    Nice to see a few buffs amidst the nerfs.

    And thank god they didn't overlook wild and actually nerfed Darkglare.

    I'm kind of curious about the Cabal Acolyte nerf though. Priest didn't seem that strong, and even if it did, I'm not sure this card is the reason.

    I wonder how this interacts with armor? Is that also considered "Health"?

    Never said that there are no other archetypes... face hunter and Dragon hunter probably will be farming some people at least in the early meta after nerfs...

    You're the one who insinuated that highlander hunter is the only viable hunter deck since that's the only one you mentioned in response to my post, but whatever.

    But highlander hunter is nerfed...

    Hunter doesn't rely on Dragonqueen Alexstrasza much, especially when compared to the other decks that saw their relevant cards get nerfed.

    Besides, hunter has more than one viable archetype.

    Laughs in hunter

    This has to be the nail in the coffin for demon hunter, right? Surely it won't survive another wave of nerfs, right??

    Most of these make sense to me. Slight nerf to druid and warrior to keep them in check and fixing the excessive 0 mana creep cards. Although I do wonder why they didn't just change Dragoncaster to "The next spell you cast costs 1 mana" instead of nerfing the card's mana cost. Doesn't seem very consistent with their other nerfs...

    The Warglaives of Azzinoth nerf seems good, but, unfortunately, still not enough to stop Wild Odd DHs. 

    Well not so sure... Pirate warrior might become aggro deck of choice now... Corsair cache doesn't hit that deck as bad as Odd DH got hit..

    It already is the aggro deck of choice though

    I really like the buffs and most of the changes.

    Surprised they haven't touched Sejuani or Heimer/Vi but perhaps the meta will be able to counter them adequately.

    A welcome change since aggro demon hunter is still one of the strongest and most played decks, even after two(!) rounds of nerfs.

    This might be a buff to odd demon hunter in wild though.

    I can't believe it's not Light's Justice... It literally ticks all the boxes.

    Either way, I finally got it. Thank you.

    If anyone could help me out with HS #12 that'd be much appreciated. 
    I found the weapon it's referring to (that can be wielded by those three classes) but the cake isn't there. 
    Am I supposed to look at an upgraded/altered version of it? I've checked all cards that give you an indirect version of that weapon, but alas, no luck...

    Yeah, I'm wondering if it's still worth carrying Unseen Saboteur in my Wild highlander packages.

    Useless in Standard at the moment, but in Wild it has been an all-star and worth pairing with Brann Bronzebeard. Card has won many games against warlocks (Cataclysm or Bloodbloom goes off, you win; even had a miracle against Darkest Hour Warlock having his Twisting Nether go off).

    And it's very effective against druids, rogues, Shadowreaper Priest (milling the millers or screwing up some OTK shenanigans) and Control Warrior to a degree (one mass removal misused can make all the difference).

    But it's almost impossible to use it against Quest Mage (had it snag a Time Warp about three times since August) or Big Priest now (too many rez spells in its latest form).

    I doubt it. Big priest is (luckily) non-existent, combo warlock decks are all but dead and Time Warp still activates and gives them two turns in a row after you end your turn. Which is usually enough for them to kill you since you just saved them 5 mana.

    Oh, I didn't know you were a prophet. Could you give me this week's winning numbers, please? I could use some extra cash.

    If, because of these nerfs, midrange demon hunter pops up again it will be but a shell of its former self. The majority of these nerfed cards, in case you haven't noticed, have been cards that are ubiquitous to the demon hunter class. It's not just aggro demon hunter that they're targeting here.

    Preemptively nerfing cards is never the solition, bar some exceptional cases (i.e. Reckless Experimenter when SN1P-SN4P was introduced).

    Why are some people here so hell-bent on having Priestess of Fury nerfed? She sees no play whatsoever right now. The deck that's terrorizing ladder is aggro demon hunter. Do you really think an aggro deck can afford to play a 7drop only to watch it be removed for 0 mana the turn after? Come on now... By the time she becomes a good card demon hunter should already be put in its place with these countless of necessary nerfs.

     

    Demon hunter being non-existent in wild is what was supposed to happen from day 1. Considering the amount of cards it is missing compared to all the other classes. The fact that it wasn't, however, shows how utterly broken Illidan has been so far.

    I changed my response seeing how I had forgotten the Sn1p-sn4p tragedy, among other things. I was hoping you would at least read a post before quoting it. My bad.

    Check out vicioussyndicate.com.

    You now know what an actual meta report looks like. You're welcome.

    I'm sorry but if you're referring to Tempo storm as your go-to meta indicator your credibility can be thrown out the window immediately.

    Perhaps my comparison with giants warlock wasn't the best but secret mage has been a consistent top tier performer for a long time. Continuously flying under the nerf radar because of more pressing matters (i.e. sn1p-sn4p) yet ever present on ladder. Leading to an extremely stale ladder experience. Even more so now that multiple decks are getting nerfed and even more people will probably flock to it.

    Anecdotal evidence of you versus secret mage aside, the deck has no real weakness anymore ever since the latest additions and is EXTREMELY consistent, even when it's getting countered with secret hate.
