This thread has gotten a bit messy. Some people are talking about standard format, others are talking about wild and there are people responding about different formats that was being discussed.
Right now I don't have an opinion about Wild mode but anyone who thinks the deck needs a nerf in Standard needs to play some more and reconsider. IMHO even the nerf to the 1-drop was unnecessary in Standard mode.
Ah yes. Because "grinding from bronze up to legend" isn't a thing that happens, which matters for determining how good a deck is or isn't for climbing.
Also, if you want to only use top level as a metric? Worlds is going on right now, and Nalguidan is one of the players who brought Quest Warrior, and has yet to lose with said deck.
The other player to bring the deck, Frenetic, only sported one win one loss with the deck, before he was elimimated (and most of his losses were with alignment druid). Meaning at 2021 worlds, Quest Warrior has a 4 win, 1 loss record to date, which seems to be a pretty flipping good ratio for the top players to sport.
No, it's not only the top that matters, but people stuck at bronze are probably not the kind of players balance changes need to be done for. According to VS stats the deck is just 'ok' on plat and higher despite half the other decks being unrefined.
Also, if you think a 5 game sample is enough to draw any conclusion, then i don't know how to continue this conversation.
