    posted a message on Pogo Rouge is a sleeper deck mark my word
    Quote from chitogebestgrill >>

    You guys are here complaining about zoo, druid etc but once aggro get tuned down in the future this rogue deck will rise. It literally jade druid 2.0 with infinite pogos. Mark my word people will start complaining about this deck in the future its really strong. What do you guys think about this? 

    Maybe when Quest Rogue is nerfed again.
    I don't believe in the Pogo-Quest Hybrid. I don't think it's necessary.

    The deck is actually good - it just has a pretty defined niche. More of a tournament pick, IMO, than something for ladder.

    posted a message on The OTK vs. Control problem.
    Quote from Billie_Lurk >>

     Control literally means winning through controlling your opponent. When a deck has a big end of game combo that relies only on pieces in the hand, it literally becomes impossible to control hence the reason control decks hate combo decks right now.  Not sure what you are struggling with here.

    So then is a Recruit Warrior playing Boomship as a win condition a combo deck? It has a big end of game combo that relies on pieces in the hand.

    Or what about Shudderwock? It only needs one piece in hand (shudderwock) instead of multiple pieces.

    That's why I think Infirc's question has some validity. The definitions of what a control or combo deck is changes from CCG to CCG and within CCG's as that game evolves and different cards are released.

    Although I am not incredibly well versed in either deck - my inclination would be toward the 1 that can play psychic scream.

    However if theyre buffs they actually should trigger Spell Bender

     They're not spells. So no, they shouldn't.

    That is a broad and inaccurate statement. Warlock was in a bad spot before cubelock, and Paladin was awful in standard before Un'Goro.

    Also, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior, Raza priest, Keleseth Rogue and several other decks from other classes have reigned surpreme in that timespan.

     This. OP is cherry picking, ignoring what actually happened.

    Given how generally good Aggro is right now and even decks, I'm not excited about better 2-drops.

    Quote from Redefined >>

     You're just wrong all around. Control doesn't "figure" out anything. The whole idea of control is to faceroll taunts and clears until you get your win condition. It is, has been, and always will be ladder cancer.

     lol...I can't actually respond to how dumb this post is.

    Quote from MojoJojo21619 >>

    A strong aggro deck yes.  Not an overpowered aggro deck that beats almost everything including strong control decks like warrior unless he dream curves.

    Why play an expensive control warrior list that is going to lose to expensive otks when you can play a cheap aggro deck that beats all of them.

    It's like scissors, paper, rock, except aggro(scissors) has at least a 50% chance of beating rock(control) and 100% vs Paper(OTK).

    Tell me what are the strong counters to this zoolock deck?

     

    Quote from Redefined >>

    I'm alright with it. Literally ANYTHING other than the hyper control cancer that is the ladder these days. I lose to zoo locks 10 times out of 10 and I would STILL rather lose to them over and over and over again than to slam my face against some Even Shaman or Even Warlock or Control Warrior no life neckbeard bullshit.

    Control is almost never good at the beginning of an expansion because you don't know what you're controlling.

    Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe zoo will prove to be too good and something will need a nerf...(not sure what that would be...). I'm inclined to believe Control just needs a few weeks to figure it out. The set has barley been out for 24 hours.

    I am grateful for zoo. A strong aggro deck is needed to keep this from devolving into a combo druid v. shudderwock "who can draw their cards first" meta.

     Zilliax feels surprisingly underwhelming... and still facing shudderwock shamans 50+% of the time :(

    I'm sadly annoyed Shudderwock is still so good.

    Zilliax has won me a handful of aggro mirrors. But I can see how he's pretty useless against control.

    posted a message on Turns out mechs are preeety good!
    Quote from Hellwyrm_nl1 >>

    The only thing I think is ridiculous is the magnetic "hidden charge".

    Come on .. you can't even leave a 1/1 on the board anymore.

     It's not hidden. It's how it's supposed to work. They are "Choose 1" minions - be a minion or a buff spell. Buff spells don't have "hidden charge" do they?

    They're proving to be a little better than I thought. Some of it is because it's super early in the metagame. There is still the problem of most of the mechs not being very good...which is probably a blessing.
