ah okay so if i stick with one deck i will stop getting fucked in the ass by rng? hearthstone secrets revealed! you heard it here first folks!
you dont get it. im not bitching about "i dont know how to mulligan with this deck." I'm bitching about "i mulliganed bad midgame cards for even worse late game cards," and "ill be okay as long as my opponent doesn't have this specific answer - oh fuck of course he does," and "i'm okay as long as he doesn't topdeck lethal- oh fuck. topdeck lethal."
Lost a game on turn 5 today. And I played cards. I like the direction of the adventure's 1-2 drops being value plays that really don't do much when played but are still advantageous toward building value for later. So if only we could stop building on the quicksand that is the crap Classic set we might have something to go off of in another eight months.
Losing with every high tier deck, you are definitely doing something wrong. Before watching good players on twitch, I thought that I made perfect plays, little did I know that I was actually doing a Miss play that will affect me two turns later. I have learned a lot last year and now I use my own decks and get rank 6 to 4 each month, like the deck in my signature.
Gets warlock quest and decides to use zoo to get a few easy ranks. First game against aggro Shaman, I dont draw a one drop until turn 3 while he curves out perfectly to kill on turn 5.
Swaps to Midrange Hunter. Faces a ZOolock who curves turn 1 Flame Imp, Turn 2 Peddler into Turn 3 Councilman coin Squire. I sit there with my hand of 4+ cost cards and cursing my RNG.
Game 3: Up against Patron Control Warrior. Establishes good board by turn 6. Ofc he brawls and his armoursmith wins. Ok whatever. Turn 7 Highmane gets executed, turn 8 COTW gets brawled and his Justicar wins. He also played like an absolute idiot. Naked Patron on turn 5 and I couldnt punish him because my animal companion decided it would be funny to give a Misha when either a Leokk or Huffer could have rekt that patron.
ok so cthun druid is out. am i just forced to play a deck and style i fucking hate or what?
I feel your pain, I really do. I personally refuse to play tier 1 decks because it just feels like your cheating. Stupid? Maybe, but that's my take on it. So, I tend to play with fun decks that are usually tier 2/3 or worse and I'm starting to accept that I won't rank up that high using them versus the onslaught of OP decks out there. It is what it is. I wish the deck choices were more diverse in standard but they really aren't. Too many good cards are now gone and they destroyed too many good decks. That being said, try wild mode and see if you like that better. Wild is MUCH more diverse than standard and your options are much greater. Every class has at least one viable deck type if not more and the best part is that you have the tools to counter stupid warriors, annoying shamans, and hand puke zoo decks. Hell, ya don't even see most of those in wild.
Sure, there will be a few secret Paladins and that sucks but there aren't as many as people think. Overall, you'll see a nice mix of decks using cards from naxx, GvG, and the WOG set. Karazhan will also be in there too which just adds more options.
