HAH, more proof that initial theorycraft/impressions are always WRONG.
Reading the first couple pages from today's view... is... hilarious gg
Assuming one has zero leggies coming into this xpac, what are the top 5 for people as "must craft"?
Didn't see any tier lists yet for the new xpac (yea it's new, but already the top decks are emerging, so how about the top legendaries?)
Wild is actually becoming more and more fun as the seasons progress. Especially considering how quickly standard gets stale (it took less than 2 weeks to become jade druid clown fiesta??), keep your wild cards. Each year i find myself playing more and more wild. People thought it would just be secret pally fest, but its really quite a diverse state of decks. The last year or so of standard, conversely, just seems to go stale in a matter of weeks (days) after a new xpac when the 'best' deck just gets copied all over the place.
Is it safe to say Pally Quest is worst legendary of this set? I just got it in a pack, and thought "maybe I can make a good deck with it", and it just sucks. Also, where is a good link for tier ratings of this current expansion's leggies?
Worst Quest until now.
Edit: Maybe Violet Teacher will make this broken, but meh..
I'm going to try this out today. Looks like a lot of fun, as I opened a Shaku in a pack and was looking for a way to play it. Sounds like you've done some testing. I don't have Grand Crusader, so threw in Beneath the Grounds to mess with Renos.
If he plays unranked, I think the system will match him with other new players (as that is what Ben Brode recently confirmed). Check out the recent news/posts regarding Ben Brode and Team Five. So, that might be a better area for him initially, especially if he is getting burned by the ladder.
Eventually, after so many wins, then he should start matching up with regular players.
For instance, I thought, well maybe he just sucks and doesn't know the mechanics.
But then we were hanging out and i watched a few games of his:
@rank 24: full Kun-Aviana ramp druid, and another crazy full n'zoth deck with sylvanas, etc..
@rank 23: full patches-pirate warrior (I realize the pirate cards are relatively cheap to acquire, but still, maybe just bad timing?)
Once these dudes win a few games, they will be gone, but then more keep coming, how is that possible?
Should I have him play unranked, but then without the ladder, you could probably see even more meta shit, or does the system account for him being brand new with just the basic set??
I must have been wrong, as I had a friend new to the game and told him it would be easy in the beginning, but is struggling to win in the very first ranks of 25, 24, etc.
I was under the impression that you can't lose stars in the ranks of 25-21, but yet there are these crazy meta decks at rank 24, 23, 22, etc. How are those guys able to farm the lowbie ranks if even conceding can't bounce them lower?
Just confused how this is being exploited.
Agree that this deck is great! winning vs all agro pirates (unless they get god draw and we get crap starting hand).
Losing to jade druids, so took out -1 ooze, and added +1 bloodlust - got a few wins on druid now and other matchups still same.
I personally love dirty rat. In a matchup as renolock vs renomage I was able to pull out my opponents Kazakus and felt like it was my game from there on. Until my opponent pulled out my Reno Jackson with his own dirty rat like 4 turns later!
cards like these make the game stay exciting even when you can guess 90% of the cards in your opponents deck.
Other times it is a fantastic combo with cards like brawl to get some extra value out of them.
