In a meta where most decks are aggressive, those who like to play with control decks are only losing, how do you go about having fun without playing with aggressive decks? I am a humble player and I do not have all the cards in the game to have a wide repertoire of decks (I even have some complete control decks but they are not able to beat aggressive decks), I am tired of facing in rank 5 only hunter and warrior with absurd damage at the beginning of the game, like facing a druid who only plays cards immune to magic and resurrects after suffering to kill a minion? I don't know about you, but it's unbearable to play hearthstone, what kind of game do you like the most, just playing minions on the field and attacking directly in the opponent's face without any exchange, if you don't buy a specific removal or card or a card that will ease the situation you just lose! Or do you prefer to fight for the board, where each minion, even if it is 1/1 on the field makes a difference, thinking so much about each move to make until the rope breaks? I am asking you for help so that I cannot abandon this game that I love so much, thank you guys.
I play Arena (as always :P). It has serious balance problems currently now, but at least it is still much more fun than constructed (at least for me ;)). To be honest, if this game mode would have never existed, I would have stopped playing Hearthstone a very long time ago. :(
The whole game is fun for me, or I wouldn't play it.
When I want to play competitive on ladder, I run Galakrond Rogue these days.
When I'm just goofing off, I play casual with Highlander Shaman or Malygos Rogue since I opened a Malygos the other day. That deck is challenging to pilot and survive, and that makes me love it.
I don't care for battlegrounds at all, or arena.
If I want to try something out in a completely stress free, "controlled" environment, I'll jump in to the single player mode and try some nutty decks out.
Brawls aren't much fun for me; I'll win one to get the pack and move on more often than not. If it's a good gold mining one, though, then I'll park my ass there all day and farm gold. That's not fun, per se, but it allows me to have more fun in the rest of the game.
A big part of my enjoyment comes from opening packs, crafting cards I've had my eye on, etc.
