    Holy moly! 

    Awesome job and I wholeheartedly respect the amount of work you put into this.

    I think it is par with Azir/Lucien. Very polarised matchups but also not your typical curve out aggro deck. If you are able to setup the big explosive turns it can blow out a lot decks but it is ultimately countered by a lot of the meta decks.

    I know this is a huge call but I call it now: this is going to be more broken than Hush the ability to choose new targets for enemy's spot removal, the ability to make every unblocked unit potentially leathal and the ability to protect units in combat from getting wiped out by a combat trick is so much power in a 2 mana burst speed spell that this card HAS TO BE broken.

    So I guess Ionia is getting back to the playfield...

    I second this. Play this in a token deck (e.g. Irelia and Azir) and you have two mana protection for your key units. Hell, you can even push a ton of damage by swapping Azir with a Sand/Soldier. Even Lee Sin decks could benefit from this card. 

    It is way too much versatility for 2 mana, so I am also fairly confident that if Ionia decks becomes a thing then this'll be nerfed to 3 mana at some point.

    It's a forum and OldManSanns wanted to post it. What's the problem?

    I think you overestimate how many people would care for mirror mode. The majority of the playerbase plays ranked because it is competitive and then you have BG. Classic, normal, duels, brawls and arena is played less because they are either niche or non-competitive.

    Then you have to factor in that the majority of the player base netdecks, plays from their phone and plays while doing other things. Mirror mode would be a niche mode for deck builders but it doesn't do anything for deck builders that want to play competively. 

    I cannot see how it would relevant for HS. Besides you could just play with friends that likes to play meme decks and enjoy your collection that way.

    Afaik it's a visual bug. Several people reported the same thing on reddit but could see it was added to their collection.

    I have noticed too. I suits me fine as I only use Lab of Legends to gain an extra 400 and 200 XP "PvP" win. However, it takes away the challenge and it wasn't even that hard to begin with.

    Yes, 5 attack tribal is a deck,

    Yes if you don't run countermechanics this deck is very hard to beat 

    but NO, this archetype is not op,

    it is very vulnerable to non-combat removal that you find primarily in noxus, freljord and PNZ and shadowisles. None of these regions are really that popular right now which could be the actual problem but this archetype is not a problem yet and once people tech against it it will even less a problem

    Pretty much this. The game has plenty mechanics to counter the high attack and low health minions. I am also pretty sure they hate facing slow and grindy SI/Freljord decks due to the amount of removal, freezes, chump blockers and what not.

    That sounds like a pretty common story actually. Long-time Hearthstone player comes and tries out Legends of Runeterra and they never go back to Hearthstone again

    Funny, because I hear mostly the opposite of that where people are playing LoR for like a month, and then go back to HS because they find it more fun. I guess it depends on where you hear those opinions.

    Maybe you should try LoR yourself before you decide which is more likely

     

    Some just find LoR's complexity to be maybe a little too much despite how f2p friendly the game is.

    This! HS is way more casual. Each player does their thing during their turn. In LoR there is much more interaction and you can't just sit calmy during your opponent's turn. And then there is spell interactions, combat interactions, different spell speeds, spell mana etc. 

    I like it but I get why some people don't. And to be fair HS is better if you are playing while taking a shit.

    I don't think Shurima is overtuned, and it is way too early to make such statements. Bad things tend to be good early after a new expansion because other lists hasn't been refined yet. 

    I just looked at the master ladder, for my region, and I can see that none of them plays with Shurima. 2x TF/Fizz, 1x Lucian/MF and 1x Freljord Fiora. Another guy posted a similar thing on Reddit where the master ladder, for his region, was 3x TF/Fizz and 1x Fiora/Shen. I am also pretty sure a lot of the Shurima lists struggle against burn decks due to the lack of healing.

    Victor is awesome and his design is really well done, so it was a welcome buff. He is prone to getting bad keywords early which hurts his viability but I will try a Victor/Apehelios deck for sure.

    Each to their own opinion. However, your critique reminds me of when you read a 1-star review of a game from a person who clearly doesn't get what he/she is talking about.

    My feelings are almost exactly in line with Flux's post above.  Hearthstone is 'expensive' but so are card games in general.  As far as digital CCGs it has set the standard.  MTGA is no less expensive. Not sure about LoR but it doesn't look that different to me

     

    The difference between the economy in MTGA/HS and LoR is massive. It's not even close. And this is coming from a former HS whale

    Mother of god... I am happy I am done with this game. Hearing about this new reward system and reading about people feeling scammed after pack openings (pack system is really a terrible system) makes me feel so happy about playing LoR. I put a few bucks in the game to start with to get my collection going and now I am self-sufficient and can craft the remaning cards and the upcoming the expansion if I wanted to - and keep in mind that I am not a hardcore grinder.

    What a cash grab Hearthstone has become. 2x pre-orders (140 EUR) AND a battlepas (20 EUR) AND you will probably still miss 50 % of the expansion? My fucking god.

    When you think of a real card game, if you shuffle a card into your deck, you normally don't shuffle your entire deck. You take the shuffled card and put it in a random spot in your deck. I think Blizzard implemented the shuffle effect incorrectly in the begining and didn't wanted to fix it when they introduced Polkelt to the game..

    I'm not a Magic player and never wathed a Magic game before. I wonder if they shuffle their entire decks when they want to add a card to their decks?

    Very strange behaviour..

    Yes, they do. Every time. Because that is how you shuffle. Unless the card states otherwise, e.g. add it the bottom of your library.

    Polkelt is a perfectly fine card. You just have to build your deck around it. It funny how many players does not get the whole shuffle thing. I've read quite a lot of threads about it.

    Well, the powerlevel of these cards are off the charts but fair enough if you didn't consider that. 

    Multi-tiered legends is kind of a thing; one being Pyros (as mentioned by AngryShuckie) and then we have all the primes. With these in mind it is clear that you can go ways with them: shuffle the leveled version into your deck or add it to the hand. You chose the ladder which is perfectly fine. However, adding a perfectly strong card to your hand is very good (even if it is a deathrattle), so if you take that route you have to decrease the powerlevel of the cards... a lot. 

    If you choose the "shuffle the leveled version in to your deck" route, then the card can have a higher powerlevel - though you still have to nerf the cards a lot if we are comparing them to your original versions. Especielly Anduin. 

    Keep up the good work and I hope you get some sleep. :-)

    There are currently a total of 3 boardwipes in the game that deal with soraka kench which are The Skies Descend The Ruination and Reckoning all of them are universal unit counters and deal with ANY units that do not have a form of recursion/spellshield on them so saying that they are "vulnerable" for them isn't saying anything.

    The actual weakpoints that are Culling Strike and fearsome are quite polarising because there are many decks out there that do not care about culling strike at all, unless you play forstbite builds -> the old ashe noxus build and there are many decks that will crush your fearsome spiders with ease so...

    My expectation is that we will end up with a meta where you get forced to play ashe noxus or the healing package. Yet i still wait for a cheesy Stargazer build to come up and annoy everyone...

     

    I'd say it is quite signicant that the deck is weak to the Reckoning and generally weak to Nox/Freljord. That means that the deck has a hard counter, and Nox/Freljord can hold its own against a lot of other decks. Regarding Culling strike it could easily be a stable if Nox/Freljord with Ashe becomes a thing again.

    I'd say Fearsome is in a pretty good spot this meta. I am not using the spider build but rather the Nightfall Diana/Nocturne build. There is a surprising amount of decks that use followers with 3 and 2 attac, and that means you can burst them like crazy. E.g. I played against a pirate deck and bursted them for 14 HP the turn I played Nocturne, I bursted Trundle/Asol for 18 or 20. And of course it is relevant to say a deck has a counter. If deck A is countered by deck B, and deck A becomes a meta deck, then deck B becomes a meta counter and can help you climb.

    Soraka and Kench are vulnerable to board clears (e.g. Reckoning), and they have low attack, so e.g. fearsome can bypass them pretty easily. 

    Edit: just played nightfall aggro against Soraka/Kench. They curved out pretty much as you'd except. I won by t5 with an upgraded Nocturne. They couldn't block any of my fearsome guys and Diana took away a couple of their key cards. The deck is not broken. It is just strong against some archtypes.

    I always wondered why they reworked Priest's core set with a bunch of midrange cards but killed all Priest's card draw at the same time. Midrange Priest with Cleric, DS+IF was one of my favorite decks of all time. 

    Hope you find a way.
