Shout outs to that cool shaman I played in casual earlier.
I don't know when you noticed I was playing some janky, corrupt deck to complete the quest, but I thank you for being the gentleman/woman and conceding after I played out all my cards and was obviously going to lose.
I didn't concede right away because I thought maybe you were doing the same thing, and then you played Y'shaarj and dunked/medic'd all your own minions. Maybe it was just the quest, too!
Your deck was way better than mine, though, maybe even somewhat viable, even.
Anyway, it's cool to feel like you've actually communicated with your opponent, without actually communicating with your opponent. Cheers!
Man Control Warlock is pretty strong now. New 4th Soul Fragment generator, Hysteria, and Armor Vendor pushed it over the top. Not gonna lie I'm playing with Tickatus...but how can you not? I feel dirty.
Gotta say, as bad as I know it is for the game, I LOVE playing the Tiller OTK to ruin HS Try Hards and their all golden decks. Makes me all warm and fuzzy to wreck their flex.
And I am probably in the minority of players that feel OTK combos are needed in order to maintain the Rock, Paper, Scissors nature of the game. Just as control is needed to keep Aggro in check, the same stands for Combo to keep Control honest.
Oh well......Tiller was fun while it lasted. I'll just have to go back to Mecha'Thun Warlock for my OTK fun. It still surprises folks from time to time when I'm on my card draw quest.

Grammar is the difference between knowing your crap, and knowing you’re crap.
As much as I'm amazed to admit it, I actually had a fun game against a priest. Even though I was 2 off lethal in the end and hence lost with my last desperate attack, it was a very exciting match. Too bad he drew Soul Mirror on time just when I had crushed him on board. But to be honest I kind of expected that. Turns out if they don't play that resurrection crap and use some dragons and stuff, priest can actually be a decent class. (I still was annoyed by all that card generation, but you know, baby steps.)
Finally some pepper. I just had a match against one of those many players called warlord. I was so scared, because he tried to pull off his tiller hysteria combo SO HARD. You know, we are post hysteria nerf. So either it was a bot or it is just a proof of the mental state of those players who play those broken combos.
I was playing armor warrior on the wild ladder and came up against a murloc quest shaman. We were evenly matched on the board for the first half of the game, but I was steadily gaining armor. Eventually he started to overtake the board after playing Megafin to refill his hand and drawing his murloc prime. At that point I was top decking with few outs. I was lucky enough to pull the legendary I built the deck around, Geosculptor Yip. At the end of your turn, he summons a random minion with cost equal to your armor. He summoned a scrapyard colossus. This was also when I had the most armor, 28 health + 83 armor = 111 combined health, unbeatable right?
The opponent got lucky and pulled a bloodlust from Hagatha’s hero power enabling him to clear the board. From then on the only out I had was fatigue. He had a full board to attack with each turn, but started fatigue earlier than me and with less health. In the end, fatigue damage was 1 point short in finishing him off before he removed all my armor and won the game.
Damn, that was one of the most satisfying matches of Hearthstone I've ever played, well, in the end at least. Was playing my Zoolock against a Big Priest. As I noticed him roping from the beginning (what is wrong with the lives of such people?), I started roping myself. I would never do this intentionally in any other circumstance. So we were both roping every single turn. (I would have stopped if he had.) The match lasted for 10 turns in literally 24 minutes. In the meantime he was probably also spamming emotes, judging by his cursor, but I usually mute my opponents right in the beginning. Then I finally killed him with spot on lethal.
Apparently, good things keep happening to me today. Just hit that perfect Turn 1. 10/8 Stats on the board. :D
I've started playing around Knights of the Frozen Throne, and had never made Legend so far. I normally get up to a few wins away from Legend each month, but then fall down all the way to the floor rank, and that's when I usually stop and play other modes. This month, after trying different decks, unsuccessfully, I found myself at D5 again and decided to grind some achievements instead trying and failing to get legend again. So I picked the "Summon X Darkmoon Treants" and built a deck around that, and that's the one that finally pushed me all the way up the hill for the first time. Here's what the deck looked like after some tinkering when I finally hit Legend.
Playing priest against otk dh in standard. Before my mulligan, my hand is palm reading and insight, my universal keep, and two late game minions. I toss the minions in hope for a 5 mana guy, and get... mass res and renew. Well fuck, I think. At least insight will draw something. I break my normal rule and play renew without a target to heal and get a second palm reading, and turn 4 I draw another one. Insight grabs a'lar from my deck and I shit you not, I get 2 more mass res and a grave rune from palm reading. Turn 7 and I had 5 a'lars and he was burning all his life steal to stay alive. Can't see why people hate res priest! XD
I don't usually play Mage because I dislike the class, but when I do I make my own control deck. Control Mage has been exceeding my expectations by far, it is great that Mage got Armour Vendor for life gain, stack them with Ice Barriers and from The Corrupt Secret card you can potentially get tons of armour. I've got great matchups against most aggro and because I have C'thun I can win most control matchups too (besides Warlock ofc) BTW if you aren't playing x2 weapon removal then you should. Nearly every class is running weapons and Bomb Warrior is a control killer so if you are playing control ALWAYSgo double stickyfinger. This deck destroys Murloc Paladin! It's been working out great for me.
