    I just went 14-5 with a HL Hunter Deck.  Surprisingly Beastmaster Leoroxx was a star.  I'll post the deck code and results when I get a chance.  

    5-0 against DH.  2-2 vs Priest.  3-2 vs Rogue.  

    Before I started playing it I was stuck at rank 10D.  I tried all sorts of variations of decks.  Kept losing to DH and Priest for the same reasons you said.  Priest is just stupid to play against.  

    Then there's Druid.  They expect that it will take a while to figure out a deck like that, but there it is.  

    I think NoHands Warrior is strong.  I just didn't feel like playing it.  

    Priest and Galak Rogue are just stupid level value decks.  It has been like this for a long time. 

    Hopefully Shaman will get better.  Paladin and Mage too.  They are just a half step behind everyone else.

    I feel like I have to react to this. From my perspective I can no longer have fun on ladder. For past months I almost didn't play ladder, I was just focusing on BG. But when I tried this stupid new ladder system, I only face people with Legend cardbacks, full golden decks, golden heroes. I didn't play that much last year, yet I face emoting tryhards now. Can someone explain? I mean I play Hearthstone since 2014 and I have so far 2 golden heroes and King Anduin. I have same bad experience in Standard and Wild. I don't think keeping the winrate of everyone to 50% is a good move. I mean this system makes sense on like bronze / silver, but then it should be just the rank and not some stupid MMR. 

    Seems like new players are more important that players playing for 5+ years... Thanks Blizzard

     If you've been playing for 5+ years and can't win a game, I don't think that's Blizzard's fault.  Sounds like you only like playing when you're winning.  Here's a thought, maybe the cards you're using or the decks you're playing aren't good, or there could be one other reason.

    Thing is that you have no real solid evidence to prove one way or the other.  Wait a couple days until they start doing Theorycraft streams again. 

    Everything you said goes out the window.  

    You come back and start a new Thread or looking at cards talking about Nerfs.  One deck rises above the others and everyone cries out how the new state of the Meta is PriestStone etc...  

    Then everyone starts playing that deck and Threads go on and on about 50% of games are Priest.   

    Then someone builds a counter deck and everyone starts to agree that deck is not really that good.   

    Then the meta starts to settle after a few weeks and new decks and archetypes come out.  

     

    You said you're good at the game, yet you don't seem to understand this happens every 4 months at release.   You can go back and count the threads that started out just like yours.  

    To respond to your card reviews -  

    - Dormant minions are interesting and will need some play testing.  

    - I like Discard Lock

    - I like Murloc Paladin (Swarm Decks)

    - Druid has 2 Tier 1 decks that gain support.  It doesn't need another.  

    - Lots of people will be playing Priest / Demon Hunter.  

    - Expansions will have Filler Cards.  (Shocking)

    I don't understand why people hate Leeroy Jenkins so much :P 

    Ye, you can combo with him... in ONE CLASS (Rogue)

    Fireball does the same amount of burst damage, ignores taunt, costs 1 less mana, and can also be used in combos (see Exodia Mage),

    Kor'kron Elite is currently the most overstatted charge minion (until the next expansion, when demon hunter comes out)

    Reckless Rocketeer might do 1 less damage and cost 1 more mana, but it doesn't summon two 1/1 whelps

    Arcanite Reaper does 10 damage for 5 mana, easily outclassing Leeroy Jenkins as a finisher

     

    So in conclusion, I plead you to stop jumping on the "hate leeroy" bandwagon. There are far more powerful finishers and far more powerful aggro cards.

     

    The only card you didn't mention that wasn't a class card is Reckless Rocketeer.   

    The others are class cards.  

    Leeroy is the most oppressive non-class aggro card in the game.  It's the most popular finisher.   

    It also limits design space.  Good luck with Reckless Rocketeer.

    posted a message on Highlander Mage

    One thing I always check when making a deck is the curve.  If you look at the curve you always want to count the number of cards you have above 4 and below 4.  You should always have a higher amount of low cost cards.  If you are top heavy, then you will end up conceding way too many games just because you drew bad.  Imagine any deck you play against will have cards on the board by turn 4 and in some cases you will have played none.  

    With mage this is somewhat acceptable because it's not a fast deck.  But keep in mind a 1-2 cost card can be as valuable as any 5 cost card in that it can trade early and keep you in the game.  Where a 5 cost card is going to sit in your hand with the other 5 cost cards. 

    I can't tell you how many times I've conceded with a handful of 5-6 cost cards that do nothing.  

    Some cards to consider adding - 

    Faerie Dragon , Dragon Breeder , Transmogrifier , Learn Draconic

    taking out - 

    Power of Creation , Conjurer's Calling
