    Enjoy your victory while it lasts Allaince!

    Very fun event. Love to see more events in the future. Not even just faction war but:

    1) building supplies in an event preparing for an expansion. (Think opening of AQ for wow players).

    2) choosing an npc or faction and racing to collect fossils or some such in an archeological dig event.

    3) Choosing a profession and "crafting" the best armor or weapon (voting somehow on what card gets the diamond treatment but in game).

    Random ideas but the point is players getting to somehow choose what card gets a shiny boarder or maybe what character becomes a playable hero is fun. Especially when it involves playing the game more.

    Great article. Love the poll idea too. May want to put a note at the top of the article about it.

    Love the evolution of the deck. Shirvalla is one of those cards I always think about crafting when I have enough dust. This deck might make me do it. I have been looking for an excuse to use Thekal too.

    When I first got Drek I used him alot. Now that I have Van, that discount is real strong. I think Drek'thar is a bit harder to build around. Vandar makes sense, small spells into big dudes. Drek there is always a minion that feels essential (like matriarch for druid). Also if you don't hit Vanndar the deck usually still feels good. Drek'thar however, if you don't draw him feels so much worse plus all the low cost battlecry minions that are useful but stink with Drek.

    Still no regrets, for the horde! I'm sure he'll find a stronger place soon.

    So you picked horde, you get golden Drek.

    Hit high warlord before the end of the expansion, then you get golden Vann.

    Jan11 tally determines the Diamond version we end up with.

    So you end up with both golden faction leaders and 1 diamond of the winner. You are safe to disenchant the normal versions you get out of packs. I completed high warlord last week and have both golden versions.

    I love seeing cards like Knight of the Wild finally finding a home. Looks like a lot of fun. Just got Mulvrick the other day too.

    Great games to end the year. All played in ranked standard.

    Playing N'Zoth, God of the Deep Commencement Warrior with Noz.

    1st Game Vs Questline Priest w/ Nozdormu. I got to them too fast with Clockwork Giant. Put up a great fight but had to use alot of removal early as I cheated them out. Finished off with Troll Centurion honorable kill.

    2nd Game Vs Hand Lock. Fast Giant again set them off balance. By the time they had Tickatus corrupted they were dead.

    3rd Game vs Elemental Shaman with a Nozdormu. I had a bad starting hand and they were very aggressive. Got me down to 1hp despite my clearing as much as possible. Lucky Commencement into Mo'arg Forgefiend almost wasn't even. Heavy Plate andLokholar the Ice Lord won me the game.

    2 out of 3 games with Nozdormu the Eternal in ranked. So fun!  Forgot it even was the 15th, thanks for the reminder.

    I love all of these. Such great pieces.

    The cheese thief is my favorite. Made me laugh. Reminds me of something out of a Saturday morning cartoon.

    Journey Below was fun but is too open being filled with neutrals and Rogue cards. Reconnaissance is much more narrow. It guaranties stealing a class card and adds in a cost reduction. I think the new card is a much better version and I will definitely be playing it. 

    Contraband Stash also seems excellent. If you discover your stolen cards well this will be very strong. Playing this in a much more focused burgle style deck will be potent.

    The other burgle support is just icing on the stolen cake!

    Looking forward to Rogue this expansion.

    Fun idea. I love steal cards but it breaks Tess. Sigh.

    Some decks don't have to give them up if they can draw them quickly. Though I agree it's a tough choice. I was building with it and had to stop myself at some points.

    I ended up with a deathrattle/outcast demon hunter shaved down a bit to fit Drek'Thar. It's been working somewhat. Taunt Druid and Pirate Warrior fall to it (if the warrior doesn't run Brawls, apparently that's a thing). Quest Mage and Quest Lock are tough but winnable with an early Drek. I could probably make this even more aggressive.

    I'll see what the site comes up with. I am sure there is a better, faster deck out there already.

    I like the theme of this expansion. The choice of legendary is nice and the faction war associated with it looks fun, we'll see how it plays out. Hero cards are very hit or miss. With speed and game ending potential of some of these questlines we'll see if they can stand up with out becoming the problem.

    Honorable Kill: Neat idea. I actually loved Overkill as an idea. It wasn't executed well on most cards but still has potential if they bring it back. I actually was hoping they would here. Still lining up exact shots sounds fun too. 

    Objectives (the spells that persist for 3turns): Neat idea. I like the idea of Aura spells. Might be too slow but we'll see. 

    Excited for reveal season. I was already enjoying Deadmines additions so I was okay to wait a bit but glad it didn't get pushed back by mercenaries delays like the miniset seemed to have been. 

    May the best faction win. For the Horde!

    I'm actually watching Kibbler play a Amulet Priest. 

    I believe both are good cards for sure. I just think Drek'Thar being faster gives him the edge. I went horde and am enjoying Drek'Thar. Having a lot of fun with a Deathrattle Demon Hunter with a lower curve.

    First of all, I love this idea. Choice in legendary is a great thing. The factions fighting is a great story, love to see more battle grounds get into HS. Speaking of story I actually liked the United in Stormwind stuff so far. Can't wait to see where it concludes! Now to the cards:

    Vanndar Stormpike I love this effect but feels real slow. Wish his stats were a bit beefier too. Seems rough to put him in what I currently use as Commencement Warrior. But I can see it in a slower priest or ramp druid. 

    Drek'Thar This is just the faster and potentially stronger card. I think this is going to be the winner for sure.  I just see him fitting easily into a lot of classes. The less than 4 cost thing is a bit restrictive. I can see some aggressive classes wanting 1 or 2 5-7 cost for finishers (Mr. Smite).

    Both fun build arounds, like the deck building restriction of card costs. However my choice is clear. I played an Orc Shaman in WoW so For the Horde!

    Alright that's a good announcement. Got me laughing from the "hurry fall back" transition.

    Guff making a snowman out of scabbs was also amusing.

    Love Squashling creatures. They aren't used that much so this take on them is awesome.

    Also love the cauldron on the Swamp Worgen!

    Portraits are weird in packs. Would of rather these have been craftable for coins or even pay. Just makes packs feel a bit more awkward. Already strange enough with the coin thing.

    Equipment is also strange. Some items are cool and change abilities or effect them in some way. Others are just +1 power. Not all can be amazing but really feels like the characters only have 1 real option for items. (I only have 1 team at 30 and don't have a ton of characters unlocked so this could change). I'd just like to see more options in equipment. More items that change how you play a character rather than just flat Damage. 

    Maybe I have to play more but I'm not excited to do tasks and get equipment for +1 damage. I realize they upgrade but if I want more damage I'll upgrade the abilities instead. Equipment should do more exciting stuff.

    I'm with you there. I don't play casual, rank or bust. I never get to a high rank anyway and it is more exciting to be rewarded for wins.

    Played a N'zoth Commencement Warrior. No Noz opponents but won all my games so that's a plus. I'll probably run it for a few more days hoping to catch another Noz player.
