Was playing against Nomi Priest as Taunt Warrior. The Priest did not stop spamming emotes after the two brawls, because he had the third Nomi ready. Unfortunately for him, Warriors got some new toys this expansion, so he was met with warpath into Plague of Wrath. FeelsGoodMan
Had the most satisfying match ever. Came across an Odd Paladin in wild casual. I just want to say I love how savage Elise's wow emote is to say against a net deck in casual. Baku appears, "I feel unfortunate to have witnessed this!" lol pure gold. The Paladin proceeded to emote and get cocky, all the while I had 2 Spreading Plagues in my hand. "I will teach you a lesson!" was also appropriate because I don't think the Paladin realized that Spreading Plague exists and all Druids run it. Lost to only one spreading plague, kept buffing the scarabs after and won single handedly. Probably won't underestimate a Druid again.
5 wins in brawl, wasn't expecting. Fought wars mostly. And I hate them. But surprisingly, I beat each one of them O_o, even though they all got Dr Boom on the 7th turn. Lost to Druid, Hunter and Priest.
Encountered a strange bug in my last game – the screen turned black and white, mostly. Did anyone have anything like this?
Made it to 8 wins in the brawl with Zoolock (since Dark Pharaoh Tekahn was about the only decent legendary I got). I'm pretty happy with that. 220 Gold and a pack, that's pretty nice. 2 losses were gainst Control Warrior, as was expected, the final one against a Highlander Mage with a ridiculous draw. Got a bit upset about it, but oh well... can't win them all.
But the best match was against a Rogue with a lackey focus, and on his final turn, he was pushing for lethal but also played around me drawing a Dire Wolf Alpha by killing another 1/1 on the field.
I did draw a Wolf, but had 4 HP left. With my last Life Tap, I drew the other Wolf, and won. I admit I was lucky as hell, though my opponent also had some good outcomes. He played a Jar Dealer, that gave him a Sludge Slurper, that created a Lackey that summoned a Micro Mummy. And a Pharaoh Cat that generated him a Restless Mummy. Still, if he had won, it would have been ok with me. I just enjoy games where both players have to cling to their last few HP and make critical decisions to avoid losing while also being able to win. It's so much more exciting than playing against a deck made primarily out of spells that kill minions and minions that kill more minions. Actually fighting for board control is Hearthstone at its best.
Gotta say I enjoy this extension a lot. I was no super hyped but damn Highlander Hunter and Mage are fun. And I love the druid quest, even though Druid has been my least favorite class to play. And the 12 Legendaries in 130 packs is real damn good ratio.
Sorry I dont have a screen cap, but.... I got my very first double-legendary pack today!! As a budget player, I rely on the "first ten" to get my legendary for each expansion. I was pretty pleased to get Siamat and King Phaoris in the same pack!!
Got stuck with Open the Vault as my free Quest. Decided to run with it just to try to finish a few quests. First game was against Quest Shaman. Duked it out - he had turn 6 quest but I was keeping up with Snip-Snap and the uber combo of [Unleash the Hounds[/card] and Revenge of the Wild to finish the quest
On the key turn I have a few 1/1 microbots up. He starts going off with Lackeys and plays the one that summons a random 2-drop with one mana left...and it gives him a Mana Wraith. Now he can't play the Kobold he needs to clear my dude. I top deck another Unleash, let out my best Roar, and lethal him for 21. GG
If you're tired of playing against aggro decks, try putting a Hecklebot or two into your deck for the insane value and memes, and you should face significantly more control based decks afterwards. It looks like the game is somehow altering your opponents depending on how well your deck is created against specific decks. I have tons of anti-aggro, but I noticed the change right after adding Hecklebots in. I have tested this at different ranks in a lot of different games, and the change is very noticeable always. Sure, it can suck if you get unlucky and fish that Tirion with Hecklebot (Have removal when you play it against slow decks), but it should still be more enjoyable and easier (Depending on your deck) than some aggro decks! I know I enjoy myself much more against slower decks. And when you get that Brann from a hunter's deck without the battlecry, they often concede on the spot.
I remember also testing similar niche cards some time ago, mainly secret removal, after facing about 18 secret decks in every 30 games. You guessed right, there was less than half as many secret users after the change! But sadly they got replaced by other aggro opponents mostly, so no good vibes from there, lol.
Has anyone else experimented with other cards to counter specific decks?
