    Kobolds had too many powerful but fun cards to not give it the top spot, especially for a Rogue main...nothing is greater than Sonya.

    posted a message on How much did you save for the upcoming expansion?

    My usual 10ish packs and around 11k dust, enough to make a Standard and Wild deck from relative scratch; I've got a good feeling there will be much Wild support in the new set.

     How long is it going to be fun to face Reno Jackson?  Or Mill Rogue.  When you lose do you feel like it was a fun game?  No, because the cards are broken.  In Standard the cards are rotated out to make the game more interesting and competitive.   In Wild, nope.  Same decks every single week, month, year, eternity.   

    Standard has "broken" cards as well, the difference is that there's less of them which makes them appear way more often than in Wild and the few that are there are a lot more polarizing. Again, diversity.

    Same decks every single week, month, year eternity? Complete and utter nonsense.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, Anyfin Can Happen, that broooooken card is so OP, I can't even remember when I last played against it. Man it's so oppressive. And for good measure I'll also add a "LOL". Apparently that's an indicator for a good argument.

    You really only seem to remember those cards from Standard...

     Exactly.  I don't understand how anyone could bring the diversity argument in Standard's favour, it defies the plain reality of how the modes function.  Spread truth, not ignorance and bias.

    Also I hate wild because...it's just lame and I don't like it lol.  Yet another reason I don't regret my decision one bit.

     Many Wild players would replace the Wild at the start there with Standard...I mean facing the exact same Odd Paladins and Wall Priests is fun for you obviously, but it is by definition lame...both formats have lameness, the Standard lameness becomes infinitely duller quicker...Wild has too many options to be lame in the long term.

    Odd Paladin will rotate out of Standard.  Its in Wild forever.  Like Big Priest.  And Jade Druid.  And basically every deck that people hated.

     I knew I should have italicized the EXACT part...yes Wild has lame decks, the difference is because the card pool in wild has hundreds more cards you rarely see the EXACT decklists, since except for Big Priest there are no exact decklists in Wild for the true degenerate decks, even Odd Rogue. and Kingsbane (the difference between playing Doomerang or not changes how the deck functions, thusly how it functions in the meta).

    That in itself is the appeal of Wild: there will be oppressive decks but the means you combat them is simply superiour in Wild due to options.  There is little to no counterplay in terms of the overall powerlevel of Odd Paladin in Standard for example, while shifting it to Wild makes the deck significantly fairer.

    Also Jade Druid is nowhere near the competitive deck it once was.  Your fallacy is that because it is in Wild it is as degenerate as when it was in Standard, ignoring the obvious meta differences and passage of time.  It's a common fallacy, usually spouted by people that either don't play Wild, or don't have the interest or understanding to learn its nuances.

    posted a message on Dollmaster Dorian + Ragnaros combo?

    If they have a board the Rag's could do bugger all...but anything with Myra's and Dollmaster will see meme play, it appeals to mill and combo players alike...and finally Dollmaster get's the Myra's synergy he's been waiting for.

    posted a message on New Neutral Legendary - Chef Nomi
    Quote from oyabun >>
    Quote from B0n3d4ddy >>

    Expectation: turn 5 Myras, turn 6 coin+Nomi, win

    Result: turn 5 do nothing, turn 6 fill the board with vanilla 6/6 which don't affect the board at all while your opponent gets to SMOrc you for free

    Especially with all the low-cost Taunts such as Tar Creeper or Saronite Chain Gang leaving I fail to see an actual use.

    Problem : no aggro decks play myras at turn 5
    They will play myra only after their hand becomes empty or when they don't have any fuel to finish their opponent. Thus comes myra's, and it's likely to draw chef nomi in the process, bringing the win condition the aggro decks lack at the moment.
    Its so much stronger than bringing leeroy that can be easily killed. At this stage, the opponent won't have enough removals to deal with chef nomi.
    Myra's was strong in odd rogue by bringing the final push through leeroy or some 3 or 5 drops. Here Myra's can bring 40 mana of cards with only one card thanks to Nomi. Broken.

     This card by itself justified the nerfing of Genn and Baku; even blowing up Cold Blood wouldn't stop Odd Rogue with Myra's and Chef Nomi from being top tier, since the setup for Nomi is perfectly synergistic with Myra's.  In Wild Odd Rogue might supplant Kingsbane as the go to aggro deck again...not sure that's a good thing honestly.

    how some people are still that excited over new expansions is beyond my comprehension

     because this one will shake up the meta quite hard due to rotations of kobolds and knights as well as ungoro

     not necessarily. it depends on how good the set is

     This will be our third rotation...how many times is the community going to fall for the same "things will be different", only to be shown immediately wrong.  This has happened twice folks.  The logic that because A is gone B will be better is a fallacy we've fallen for twice.  The reasonable thing is to have skepticism that things will evolve past how the meta operates now...if it does great but too many people have no concept of perspective.

    posted a message on Crap Legendaries: One of Hearthstone's Big Problems

    Your whole premise is faulty.  A mill deck deems crap as gold, there is no 1 for 1 exchange when so many different archetypes, strategies and synergies exist.  You've tried to massively simplify a complicated system of interrelation to make a basic point.  It's just a waste of time to do this shit, you basically don't care about the nuance and interplay of the vast cardpool, it's obvious...but that doesn't mean your opinion to deem things as 'bad' based on childlike reasoning is worth the time it took to write it up.

    posted a message on Is Shudderwock or Hagatha worth it?

    There is 0 worry that Shudderwock won't be one of the most powerful legendaries in the new Standard...and Hagatha has a proven power level.  If you intend to play the two cards in Wild it's a slam dunk, they're powerful, engaging and exciting.  Win, win.

    Questing Adventurer is kinda like a reverse Edwin, that's the card most similar.

    Any recommendations for Alex?  She's the only one I don't have...thinking Onyxia but seems an awkward replacement.
