He he pro'tec, he at'ac
Thought this was cute, thought I would share it.
I personally don't recommend playing this deck, especially my version. I did fine with it on day one but as other decks have gotten more refined it's gotten a lot worse.
If you're dead set on playing Librams, you absolutely need Liadrin. Also, double truthseeker is a must. The streamer Jambre played a list on stream a couple days ago. I recommend you look into that if you're still interested.
I don't think start of game should ever be printed unless it's something like Prince Malchezaar where it isn't actually beneficial. Getting any specific advantage every single game lets decks build around that super hard, and the result is decks that are insanely consistent and repetitive to play against. Genn and Baku created decks that pretty much did the same thing every game almost without fail. It sucked. These cards you're suggesting would do the same thing, but they'd have a random chance to lose the game for whoever plays them if you topdeck them at the wrong time.
My overall feedback is that "start of game" is a toxic mechanic and you shouldn't try to fix it. I don't think it can be done. The cards specifically are all over the place. I think most of them are very strong in terms of power level. The only ones I see as bad are the ones that basically say "lose the game" on them and even those I'd be wary of. Some of them you could build a deck where the downside matters very little and it just becomes a free benefit.
all are wrong, worst card of expansion is magtheridon
This is a true statement.
A'lar is definitely better than we gave him credit for. I wouldn't call him great or anything, but he has his niche. He's a good threat for resurrect/deathrattle decks. Decent card.
It isnt worse than lowly squire because Umberwing exists. Plus a plethora of other ways for demon hunter to attack besides hero power. Lowly squire forced you to give up your turn 2 play to get value out of him, which is why he sucked.
I think Vashj Prime is a little bit better than good. It's an unconditional Skull of Gul'dan that tutors and comes with a 5/4 body. The spell damage is also worth more than usual because you're drawing cheap damage spells to go with it. Burn shaman has been a real deck a couple of times, and in those decks Vashj prime would be one draw for 12 or more damage. I think she's the single best prime in a vacuum, but has easily the worst normal, and shaman just doesn't have enough draw to get there.
Honestly, I'm happy about this. Services like HSReplay are a big part of why metas get solved so quick nowadays. It's very easy to determine the best thing when there's a website that just tells us what it is within a day. Less people using it = less data = harder to draw conclusions = more time to experiment.
I'd bump Ysiel up to a two personally because it could get into quest druid. The combo with nourish is really nice, drawing and getting two more mana to cast cheap spells with, and it isn't terrible outside of that. It's not insane, and if it was out right now I don't think it'd go in, but you've got to replace floop, gloop, and loti somehow.
Maybe because the other quests give some kind of artifact or something? Like Ossirian Tear, Ascendant Scroll, Heart of Vir'naal, etc. The roar would be like the action you do with the mask, not the mask itself. I guess I can understand the reasoning but not why they went out of their way to change it. It's just such a small thing.
