I see a lot of negativity here every day, complaining about everything possible. I know, it's a normal thing on game forums, but still I have to say this.
Rise of Shadows is such an amazing upgrade on what we had to deal with for last 8 months. Standard meta is really fresh, there's lot of different decks to play, who would've guessed that "Malygos hunter" would be played someday. Removing odd/even was the best thing they could've done. Arena seasons is a great thing for arena players like myself. I enjoy playing HS ladder again after a long time!
I think there's only one thing that needs fixing, and that's rogue in arena, way too strong atm, but few bucket changes will fix that problem easily. On standard it's way too early to suggest any nerfs, there is no deck that's single handedly dominating the meta atm.
To add to that, I've always been a fan of constructive criticism. Pointing out problems of a game is completely fine, but now it feels like people try to make a problem out of everything and can't just enjoy themselves. (that card is too strong, nerf this deck, why is this a thing, how can I beat that deck, that and this is way too op....)
I remember, back in the beginning of Mean streets of Gadgetzan expansion, that question sounded like: Are you a Patches or a Reno player?
Just how flies the time?!

There are actually so many different decks. But guys like you just think about the "best" decks.
Maly Hunter is absolutely viable, Rogue has up to three different viable decks, Tempo Mage is not that good but outplays Token Druid, Shaman has a really good control that beats Token Druid easily, Murloc that beats bomb warriors, Rafaam Zoolock that beats bomb warriors.
RoS is AWESOME! I love playing against all the kingsbane rogues, and odd paladins! All new and interactive cards. Jokes aside, this new expansion brought a lot of fun cards that I love playing with. It sucks that wild is just crap, and that only 6 people play it.
For me ladder is realy fun since so many new decks are beeing played, it feela fresh and enjoyable. But i couldnt say the same thing for arena. I realy dislike arena right now and the reason are two minions. The first one is cabal courier it feels like it is in every mage priest or warlock deck and the second one is the eccentric scribe which is basicaly a savanah highmane for every class out there and i realy hate both them for their stickiness.
Token Druid does feel pretty insane, it'll end up coming down to whether or not there are enough solid board clears across all the classes, wide boards a la odd Paladin are very much a thing, except now there are fewer clears.
