My opponent was playing Mill Rogue and was roping me (I'm guessing) because I was playing Even Shaman. Luckily I was watching The Sopranos so I roped him back every turn, and when I had lethal he was met with a "Gaze upon my might."
Really need to share the play I just made. Was playing bomb warrior, up against a mech hunter and obviously not doing too hot. At least my dynomatics (I own 1 and discovered a 2nd) were useful to clear some wyverns.
But then the 2/2 summon a 7/7 happened and again and nine lives and then king crush hit the board as well. I had already cleared some of the 7/7s and right now the board is 2/2 dr summon a 7/7, 8/8, 1/1 I'm at 6 health. I topdecked dr boom, but no 3-or less cost mech in my hand to kill the 2/2. I still went for it. My hp was 'discover a mech' it had a mecharoo. That was all I needed for part 1, kill the 2/2 and get the 7/7 on the board. Part 2 a true hail mary, hit the 8/8 and hope it hits the 7/7. And it did!
Playing my Spirit Lady Priest deck against a typical beast hunter. He plays well, forcing me to use my Mass Hysteria’s before I’d like to, and then flooding the board in order to buff his Hyena. I’m staring at lethal in two turns, with nothing in my hand but multiple copies of Divine Spirit, Extra/More Arms and one Inner Fire, all of which I pulled from Test Subjects in the early game. With 17 health left, an empty board and 16 damage staring at me in the face (21 if he has Kill Command), I topdeck my second copy of Spirit of the Dead. I’m basically out of minions, so this little spirit becomes an ersatz Coppertail Imposter and I pray he doesn’t have Deadly Shot.
Extra Arms, More Arms, Divine Spirit, Divine Spirit, Inner Fire -> Boom.
Won Chapter 5 Kirin Tor Citadel first try with Paladin thanks to two super cheesy - but hilarious - pieces of luck:
The Upper Hand (look at four spells from your deck & reduce the cost of one by 3) carries over across echos. So used it on Sound the Bells! which make it an infinitely repeatable 0 mana spell and instant win for me on 4 of the bosses, including final boss (turns out a 110/220 minion is hard to kill in one turn lol!).
Got both the Prince's Ring (get a random Death Knight hero power) AND Stargazing (use your Hero Power twice each turn for 1 mana). So won another 3 matches after getting DK Uther/4 Horseman power and getting all 4 Horseman on the boards on turn 3.
Opponent thinks he's safe thanks to his heavily-magnetized Annoy-o-Module against my pogo hoppers.
Luckily I had discovered Betrayal early on meaning I could use his Silver Hand Recruit to get rid of the divine shield and then smash away the module and then smash his face for 23 damage exact lethal.
Pogo-Hoppers might not be tier 1 in strength but by God they are tier 1 in fun!
Just came back to the game after a few month break since Dota Auto Chess was all messed up. Made a wild RNG casino mage with Arcane Giant, Flamewaker and Mana Cyclone to screw around a little. Somehow winstreak to rank 7 wild (obviously) and facing a beast hunter who has me at 6hp on turn 4 with a 10/6 Scavenging Hyena and I have nothing with him at 30hp.
Beat someone last night who immediately added me to both 1) call my deck trash and, simultaneously, 2) berate me for playing "tier 1 netdecks" in Casual. I WAS playing a trash deck I enjoy (deathrattle control priest) so point one was fine. Their second point is what made the whole thing hilarious because of the aforementioned trash deck being tier 1. That plus the fact that they were playing Token Druid so the irony cracked me up. Don't ever change, garbage people of HS!
Finally beat heroic Dalaran Heist. Despite getting the absolute shit tier treasure Sow the Seeds.
I struggled more with Kalec than I did Khadgar, though that may be because I had Robes of Gaudiness into a turn 4 Dreamgrove Ring into 5 fucking The Beasts. Double Deathrattle anomaly is so unbelievably broken with Priest!
Miracle Druid with two Owls has been doing wonderfully for me in the teen ranks. Haven’t been grinding ladder the last month as I’ve been focused on playing Heist, but it’s a lot of fun to play off meta decks and this one handles all the magnetizing pretty well.
Just played a mech Paladin who drew an amazing curve. Crystology into Galvanizer + Glowtron into Call to Adventure into Glowstone Technician. Played some massive mechs, only for me to drop two owls in the first seven turns while building a board and waiting for my big Auctioneer turn.
After playing a Kangor’s that resurrected unbuffed Mechano-Egg, Gatekeeper and Galvanizer, he conceded. Happy times!
