If you dusted your wild cards and exclusively play standard now you may wish you could go back to wild, but feel like you can't due to being so committed to the standard format now. Do you have any regrets dusting your collection so that you could fully take that step into standard?
Everyone has their own thing that they like. Some like standard, others wild. I personally don't understand why players like playing in what standard is now (ie a vastly smaller format in both ladder and casual, as well as more or less having to 'chase' the top 2-3 decks every single time the meta changes). It also seems like people get burnt out and complain more about standard than in wild. However, that is just me and complaints can be measured against playing in wild as well.
Do you regret moving to standard, or is it a second home for you?
I actually like Wild a lot better. There is more stability and balance compared to the crapathon that is the standard meta. The idea behind standard was the new decks would evolve in an ever-changing meta. In reality, 2-3 superdecks get established every couple months and then tossed on the rubbish heap by nerfs or expansion.

I play Standard and Wild very interchangeably. When I get sick of seeing a particular deck, for example Giants Warlock/Hunter in Wild, I will switch formats for a while. I have no regrets about the addition of Standard mode. The main draw of standard mode is that the game changes more radically when new cards are released. I’m two months when the next rotation happens I will probably stick with Standard for the first month to experience as much as I can if the new cards. Entirely new decks will spring up which is very exciting.
More options for players is always a good thing. Standard makes the game much more accessible for new players, but Wild is a great place for people like me (played since Beta) to feel like our old cards still have value. It’s a win-win situation imho.

While I never dusted all of my legendaries to move to standard, I did attempt to try to mainly focus on standard which was boring and hard to do. I was never rich (in game) but by the time the rotation came around, I did have a few wild legendaries which I all of a sudden couldn't use. I couldnt afford to keep up with tier 1 decks and even when I could, it was very boring. I switched back to wild and I am having so much more fun. I do understand why they made standard a thing but wild is just so much better. I think I did dust majordomo though, but really who didn't?
