    I've been having a lot of fun with Odd DH. My winrate is slightly better than 50%, so it's not too too good, but has many favorable matchups. I'm hoping for Legend.

    Card draw is tough. In addition to the class options, I run 2x Coldlight Oracle.

    I'm wondering how people feel about Fungalmancer? I haven't tried it yet, but it plays well in other Odd classes.

    We have more solid options on the 5 slot than Rogue had (Warglaives, Adept with a weapon equipped) and less weenies (no lackeys, much less pirates. Fungalmancer is only good when you consistently have 2 minions on board T5. I don’t like it in DH.

    I haven't tried odd demon hunter yet but I always liked odd rogue so I should probably give it a go. How's the carddraw after the nerf to skull?

    Also, got a decklist by any chance?

    You can start with the Tempostorm one, it's pretty decent. If mine keeps performing good I'll upload it.

    Sometimes I take out the mini-pirate package (too fragile) for better 1 drops (Shadowhoof Slayer for tempo, Blazing Battlemage, Fire Fly) and better 3 drops against Priest/Druid/Warlock: good old Vicious Fledgling, even Dragonhawk Rider can deal some nice dmg if it survives the turn. Still debatable if Hench-Clan Thug is the definitive 3. Maybe not, he's much worse in DH than he was in Rogue because there you could set up Dagger in turn 2. I also don't let go of king Leeroy Jenkins in the 5 slot.

    See? This is a nice flavor of Even/Odd decks. So flexible and no definitive closed lists like Std. And we didn't even mention real tech choices, like Chief Inspector.

    As for card draw, you don't need so much since your tempo and finishers are pretty efficient. Still, we have at least 3 Outcast cards: a Consume Magic and 2 Crimson Sigil Runner.

    I’m feeling sorry for Std players, as the new class has been a problem since day 1. Even after the 2nd round of nerfs it’s still busted and polarizes opinions.

    In Wild it not only survived the nerfs, but Odd DH still sits comfortably in Tier 2, playing similarly to good ol’ Odd Rogue. Great early, mid and late game. Good matchup spreadsheet, beats Quest Mage 50% (or more, with techs). What’s not to love?

    Got Diamond 3 last month. Already Diamond 9 now and perfectly viable for legend. Other archetypes could even be playable (Reno, combo, hyper aggro) but I’m simply in love with Odd right now. RIP Albatross though...

    Any other Wild DH fans out there?

    I play Wild only since its inception. Reasons:

    - It’s cheap to keep updated. Good cards remain good for a loong time. It values your investment. I realize I’m unable to build any decent Std deck atm without crafting a ton of niche legendaries/epics. A good way to measure if a card is worth crafting is: “might it be good in Wild down the line?”

    - Variety. It has its meta cheesy decks, obviously (hateful Quest Mages...) but also allows for amazing deckbuilding and fun decks. Exodia Paladin, Spell Yogg Hunter, 1000 types of OTK Druid and so much more. 

    - It’s easy to climb and reach your desired monthly goals. My 1st and only Legend rank was there. Now I get my Diamond 5 smoothly in the 1st 5 days

    I have an Exodia list that runs Beardo, Thaurissan and 1-cost mana spells. It's faster and more reliable than the ones with pandas to bounce the cavaliers. It can win against other controlly decks and even some aggro, when you draw well (Shirvallah + Uther weapon = almost Reno). I'll post the list soon, very fun to play and cheap.

    MTG >>>>>> HS because of many reasons: no RNG, multitude of archetypes, better art, more adult feel etc

    On the ftp side, as people above said very well, you can slowly build your collection for free, but it's gonna take a looong time to build really good decks, except the hyper aggro ones, which you use to grind. Anyway, it's a very satisfying game, with more than 20 years of successful history. Really, what are you waiting for??

    Literally you're first reason is "NO RNG"? Your leading argument out of the gates, and you're already stumbling...I'm laughing out loud as much as JJJ here.  If you believe that, not only are you a naive fool; but I've got a statue in Booty Bay to sell you.

    Thanks for the reply, Mr. Politeness! 

    I'm the naive fool when you can't even differentiate between Hearthstone's intrinsic RNG foundation (draw a RANDOM x-card, summon a RANDOM 2-cost creature, cast 5 RANDOM spells you've cast this game) and Magic's occasional mana screw/flood? 

    Both games have their charms and intrinsic pros and cons. I had my share of HS addiction. Can't even touch it now. MTG on the other hand with its absurdly larger variety of strategies is a whole new world to discover.

    That’d be mtggoldfish.com for me. Daily updated meta list and daily articles and videos. But the thing I really miss is a Vicious Syndicate in depth type of meta analysis. With MTG I have to deduce what’s best against what, match-ups, meta trends, that kind of stuff.

    Some  youtubers produce some interesting content but it’s not the same as a good old written article.

    I don't know if it's case sensitive this time but in their official Blog they spelled the third one "BroughtBack"

    There are many other decks out there using Command the Dreadhorde as a finisher (Esper control, 4C Dreadhorde) that don’t even use The Wanderer. They simply use other heal mechanics to survive CTD life loss.

    I also opened 2 of them but can’t afford the other rares (*#%! Dual lands...) to build the ful deck

    I think at least some cards from this set will make it to the meta, look at how powerfukl some of them are! 

    I see Chandra, Acolyte of Flame replacing the Goblin Chainwhiler in mono-red aggro, Chandra, Awakened Inferno absolutely will find its way as control killer, Leyline of Sanctity... Lots of cool stuff and they've just started the reveals!

    At least, even if you don't get a ton of useful stuff, imagine all those Wild cards you get for 50 bucks...

    Paper Magic is not for me anymore. Tooooo expensive and time consuming.

    However, I recognize Millstone from your avatar, it's from my teen days (started at IV and stopped at VII ed)

    Absolutely man! I’m in the exact same boat. However, we’re pretty safe to craft strongcards from the newer sets that we know will remain in Standard. Most recent was another “Experimental Frenzy”, since for sure there will an updated mono-red aggro that will use it!

    Mono red aggro may have some problems in standard...

    http://www.magicspoiler.com/mtg-spoiler/leyline-of-sanctity-2/

    a tech against Red Deck Wins, however its not as strong against other decks. They are loosing Lyra in the rotation so that hurts white for sure.  We will see.

    Ouch! That hurts!

    And it's not that bad against other control decks that force you to discard. I think it might be a staple in control that are weak to strong RDW starts!

    Are you a f2p new player and don’t have the cards for a real deck? From what I’ve seen consistency is key in MTGA and a lot of “1-of’s” is the opposite of that. Most strong decks use 3-4 of the best cards, Which makes them strong. But until we craft all those sweet rares, there’s not much option besides using Sub-optimal subs and 1-of’s.

    (not a critic towards your deck! Just general thoughts

    I’m in love with MTGA. It looks more generous at first but when you try to go competitive you see how expensive most decks are. Even mono-red aggro is not cheap, and needs a lot of rares (HS equivalent of Epics). Anyway it feels great to farm dailies and slowly build your collection towards your dream decks. I completely dropped HS these last days..

    Gruul midrange is a cool deck and pretty expensive too, but the control ones (Esper etc... Forget about it.

    Are we supposed to pre-order blindly or do they show all the cards beforehand like HS
