There are different types of players, some are very competitive and care about ranked mode, they will dust everything they have to craft a tier 1 competitive deck for the current meta. The other type is card hoarders and funky deck players. I belong to the latter, I have most of the cards I need, so I don't play to earn gold anymore. I am that player who crafted Beneath the Ground and Astral Communion.
It has become increasingly frustrating to play for fun these days. Within last 20 games I queued only in 1 non-meta deck, it was an OTK priest with deathlords. I was playing a N'zoth Burgle Reno Rogue, the deck is bad, but it is fun to play. I am really hoping to see a mode where you can play those decks without getting punished and killed on turn 5.
