I almost felt bad for that Token Druid I faced today. I hard countered him with my garbage Spell/Control/OTK Shaman deck (for landslide achievement). In the end, he was fatiguing and down to <10 HP while I was at full health with some cards left, including a ~20 dmg Hagatha's Scheme that I didn't need to use.
We don't have a random thread so I figure this will do as I am not complaining.
Is the pity timer real?
I know you will get a legendary among your first 10 packs of any expansion but does it go beyond that? I know it used to be said the pity timer ensures one legendary every 20 packs but this could be a myth. If there is a pity timer it might be advantageous to open packs from Phoenix expansions after I get common and rare Barrens cards up to the point I open my first legendary (not counting the "guaranteed" ones I already opened). That way I stock up on commons and rares from those expansions on the cheap thanks to duplicate protection and top it off with a legendary. Ideally a source is good but not necessary.
So another priest vs warlock game. Literally nothing happens until turn 4 except for him life tapping on turn 2. On his turn 4 he plays The Dark Portal and I am preparing for the worst and that he just pulled his Tickatus. Then he follows it up with a coin and Felosophy. Yep, bad news bears. So my turn 5? I kindly ask him to share his thoughts with the class... NOW! What do I find in his hand? Two one mana uncorrupted tickatus. How much mana do I have leave? Exactly two. :D https://hsreplay.net/replay/DjmZ3kGf4PJdZuMexWQJzD
To his credit, he didn't concede to me burning 10 cards from his deck before swapping back.
Just got OTKd by a warr - and it was apparantly [i]accidental[/i] as the warr didn't think it would be doubled to face! Wasn't expecting leaving a spell damage to minion doubler out to be 38 dam, but that was a nice way to lose :) Ashtongue, Silas, Slam, GG :) Loving that it was accidental, too, that's just the icing on the cake.
As a counterpoint to the last post in the Salt Thread, I did it. Eeked my way into Diamond 5, first time I climbed this high in the new system (first time I saw the new system really) since I only came back a month ago. But it was a grind from hell, I must have been on the very brink of hitting Diamond 5 like 10 times but always got pushed back a few steps back. Just in time too because my deck gets nerfed later today.
Bonus happy points: Some priest was one the ropes, I had the board, my hand was monster, next turn he way dead. Takes my hand and deck with the legendary, my hand is low and discounted, plays all, turns it around, has a good chance of winning now. My turn I draw his own Zephrys, lethal him :D
