    Demon Hunter - aggressive is very good, maybe overpowered. Control/big demons is outclassed by galakrond and highlander stuff and isn't relevant. The super busted demon hunter cards like skull and eye beam really want a low curve. You don't want one of those big guys stuck in the left of your hand turning those cards into bricks.

    Rogue - Very strong. Stealth aggro could definitely work. New secret package and maybe even the stealth package slots into galakrond.

    Warrior - Galakrond warrior still good with a few worthwhile new cards. Pirate warrior might make a comeback now that they can tutor Ancharr.

    Mage - I don't know. Spells only deck seems lack luster, but spells only hunter blindsided the entire community so I'm just not going to say anything. There might be a version of reno mage that's good, but without Luna's Pocket Galaxy the deck has to be completely reworked. There's some more stuff for a cyclone deck but losing Elemental Evocation really hurts that deck. I don't expect much

    Warlock - Zoo stuff seems good. 4 mana 5/5 with rush that draws three cards. Sure, why not. There's also new 8 drop that seems decent for slower decks.

    Druid - there might be some nutty Kael'thas combo thing that works. I don't know how to build that deck, so I'm filing it under "maybe." Quest Druid probably still works. Tier 2 or so.

    Priest - Rez priest loses cloning gallery, but I don't think that's fatal. It loses mass hysteria, but they're getting more aoe options via the rework. It wouldn't surprise me if the deck stuck around. Also, I predict more aggro stuff so it'll have a better field to play against. There might be some weird curve midrange deck with the 2/3 that buffs health, buffed temple enforcer, injured tol'vir/blademaster and circle. You just drop thick boys, heal and value trade and slowly roll the aggro decks. It seems like it could work.

    Shaman - Its only viable, if you can call it that, archetype of aggro shaman gets murdered by rotation. I don't think any of the new stuff makes a brand new deck that's good enough. Dead class.

    Paladin - I'm cautiously optimistic about librams. I picture some kind of midrangey control deck. Normally I'd think that deck just gets blown out by galakrond, but with a roided equality as one of the librams... sure I could see it. Enough tempo to keep up, justice past their swing turns, and the free stats from a bunch of wisdoms to keep up or win past that. And Libram of hope is just a better Ragnaros, Lightlord you can run two of. And it costs 3 sometimes. High hopes. Viable murloc paladin is not outside the realm of possibility.

    Hunter - Got a few nice cards. I think Leoroxx is powerful but doesn't have the support right now, at least in standard. Their existing archetypes should keep chugging with a couple new cards each, like Zixor + ingenuity in highlander.

    I like this Teron Gorefiend idea. It's a turn 3 that synergizes with what you would've played before that, and it's a good target for the hero power too. Murgur isn't that great the quest but it's probably good enough by itself to run anyway. I give it a like a 90% chance that Al'ar is unplayable trash. The quest doesn't make it that much better.

    Will it be good? Probably not. The deck barely cut playable before Galakrond and Dragonqueen were printed, and it definitely loses more than it gains. I still encourage you to try it. If you have fun that's what matters.

    So it's King Krush for 1 less mana but you don't get the 8/8. 8/8s are pretty good man, and King Krush isn't even good except when cheated out. I'm pretty sure this is just bad. Demon Hunter has much more efficient burn like Metamorphosis.

    Is this what I think it is? An objectively bad demon hunter card? I can't believe it!

    Quote from Crawver >>

    Honestly I'm glad it's looking to be more of a midrange deck. At least those have more interactive and fun games. But it's clearly being designed with a generalist mind set. Some strong late game cards, some strong early game cards, some anti aggro, some anti stall. 

    One thing I've not seen though. I thought there was going to be DH cards that go into the evergreen set. Anyone know which ones they are?

     At the end of the year, they're going to take some of the cards they printed and make them into the demon hunter classic set.

    It looks broken. All the early stuff is busted and recently they've shown a lot of powerful top end too. The only bright side is that Blizzard said in an interview that they would be very quick and responsive with changing it if they need to, and I'm pretty certain they'll need to.

     It's ok. Pretty good as far as big lads to cheat out go. I wish it was a mech so I could play Oblivitron in standard since Mechanical Whelp is rotating. I'll just have to hand in my special snowflake card until we get something else.

    posted a message on New Paladin Rare Card Revealed - Libram of Wisdom

    There will be times where you get screwed by an overdraw, or you really need a libram of hope but don't get it,  but the payoff of Liadrin is still worth it. You're better off generating a bunch of wisdoms and sometimes whiffing on the hope than not generating them at all because you're not running Liadrin, or not running any wisdoms just to guarantee you get the hopes.

    posted a message on New Paladin Rare Card Revealed - Libram of Wisdom

    I think this is the main draw of the libram deck. It's pretty easy to reduce to 0, and once you do you just get free stats. Then you play Lady Liadrin and you're constantly giving your minions +5/+5 or more. Most of the silence options in standard once spell breaker rotates are class bound and not very good besides. I have high hopes.

    I could see this going in standard quest druid. You cast this and Nourish, then you draw the cards and get to cast two more spells at the discount, maybe more if you have another nourish. Hidden Oasis and Starfall are both powerful options.

    He did, but I didn't get the idea from him. Somebody made a comment in twitch chat about losing to wing commander + topsy turvy and I decided to try that idea.
