Honestly this post reminded me of the.....people......that used to say
"Shudderwok is a design faliure/is OP/shouldn't have been printed"
when the ONLY problem with that card was (and still is to an extent in wild) the combination of COMPLETELY UNRELATED cards that enabled the actual infinite (and that BTW were borderline useless anywhere else)
You know when there are 10 cards that you can play without problem and then one card comes in and breaks the game then I think that card may be the issue, not the other 10.
And why is a deck restriction having good cards in your deck? Cascading Disaster is good and easy to corrupt. Strongman and Tickatus also can be corrupted easily in control decks. Specially Tickatus, which his cost can be reduced.
Guys, the drawback can't be that you have that dead card in hand! That isn't a drawback. That's a regular 10 mana cost card, if you drew it before, it's a dead card, in any scenario, in any class and with any 10 mana card. If that's the main drawback of Y'shaarj, then we can say that the other gods are weak, since they also require additional things (some of them pretty heavy to get to work) AND also have that restriction of "10 mana card = bad draw".
How is not easy to corrupt cards in control decks? It's hard with cards like Clown, but with cards costing less or equal than 6? Not so hard.
We had this exact problem before guys, I really don't understand how you can't see it. The same was said with Alex "having no duplicates is a huge draw back, the card is fine with 0 mana cards"... Also with Galakrond, "corrupting 4 times is hard, it's fine with 0 mana cards". 0 mana cost discounts are broken most of the times. It's understandable in an effect like Yogg, which is heavy RNG-based (and it loses the discount in the next turn)...
So first of all, trying to corrupt Tickatus in not as simple as it looks. First you need to play cards that cost more than 6 mana in an aggressive meta, oh you also have to draw tickatus then play those cards if you want it corrupted. You can't just throw every expensive card in the deck just to have an easier time corrupting it, doing so will grant you a quick loss, trust me. Then it's just a 6 mana 8/8, what is it gonna do against an aggro opponent? Oh no, it will mill their 1 and 2 drops. Cascading is only good against control, greedy decks, doesn't do anything again wide boards.
Yep, y'shaarj is so broken. Just play your corrupted Tickatus and the 2nd one created by Felosophy, then play double corrupted Strongman and also double fully corrupted cascading disaster. Drop Y'shaarj on turn 10 (9 with coin) and insta win, that's why that deck has over 80% winrate, I mean come on blizz nerf it wtf why you nerf brann and blade dance and not Y'shaarj?
