I can't help feeling blizz didn't discover turtle mage when they were testing the cards from this set. I think they're jsut lucky that it's a boring deck to play and quite a hard deck to play when you're managing hand and board space.
It's boring coupled with a healthy dose of being generally terrible for the most part unless you highroll like crazy. 9/10 you're dead long before you assemble the necessary pieces. And that's assuming you don't misclick and choose the wrong spell, destroying your combo completely. lol (I've seen people make this error loads of times)
After opening more packs I finally got these so I gave it a whirl the other night. It was actually kind of fun to play, since I've never really had the chance to play any combo decks before, given the lack of certain cards.
Maybe I just got lucky, but I won every game I played in a row. I used Desert Obelisk as my win condition, and it was fun to watch them go off. Pew pew pew...
That being said, maybe later when I play again I'll get stomped by a super aggro deck and be sad, but that's just the way the game can be, right?
