    posted a message on How do you prefer to name your decks? Share some cool names!

    On the forums for practical reasons people are always using names that shortly desribe the type of deck they are talking about: "Pirate Warrior", "C'thun priest (Wild)", "Reno-beast-rogue", "Kibler's KFT Mage", "Czech Global Games Finale Face Hunter" and so on. But I was wondering what are the people actually using in your HS collections?

    Personally, I like naming my decks after movies or by using wordplay, although sometimes I use default names - like my Taunt Warrior is named "Guarding the shard" which is a default name for a taunt warrior deck recipe, even though I've changed at least half of the cards.

    So, I invite people to share some cool names! My favorites:

    - I know that the name "Yogg'n'load" was created independently by multiple people when Yogg was released (the deck includes Lock and Load spell). When recently hunter death knight card was released, I've added him to the deck and started calling it "Yogg, load and 2 stitched beasts" (after the movie "Lock, stock and two smoking barrels"). That is also when I found out that deck names have character limit..

    - My jade rogue deck is called "jade, jury and executioner"

    - Back in the old days I had a mage deck called "mad mage 2: spell warrior". Honestly, there is no justification for "2" being there other than resembling "Mad Max 2: road warrior"

    - Naxx days deathrattle shaman deck, that actively used Reincarnate was straight up called "You only live twice"

    - Since SMOrc hunter was the only effective way to build a hunter deck, I tried to create a control hunter deck and called it "face is NOT the place"

    - Also, when I created a DeathRattle hunter deck, I typed the name "DR Hunter". Sometimes later I've noticed that I started thinking about it as "Doctor Hunter"

    - although my elemental shaman deck is nothing craze, I like to spell it as "ele-mental", it adds a little bit of zing to it.

    posted a message on Top 3 most fun decks you've played since KFT

    In no particular order, all Wild;

    1) Hunter deck: "Yogg, load, and two stitched beasts" (Yeah, I love giving my decks stupid names)- You slow down your opponent with all sorts of traps + Eaglehorn Bow (half of the deck are secrets), then you suddenly drop Cloaked Huntress + Lock and Load + 5 traps. Then you follow it with DK hunter, start pushing out zombeasts, at some point Yogg comes out... Or maybe you just play Secretkeeper on turn 1 and snowball from here. It's not a consistent deck, you're never sure what exactly is going to happen next, but it is always fun. Especially when your opponent loses track of the secrets played and starts making big mistakes, like playing Frothing Berserker into my Snipe

    2) Rogue deck: "jade, jury and executioner" - you play lots of jades and you play lots of stuff to get more jades outside of your deck, most of which comboes with each other. Also lots of cards have battlecries and battlecry synergies - Gang Up, Brann Bronzebeard, Mimic Pod, Lotus Agents and so on. You can use Antique Healbot with brann, gang up, Shadowcaster, Shadowstep to heal yourself. And finally, the cherry on top of the pie - Valeera the Hollow is the only card in the deck that cost more than 5, so you can always replicate any card with your hero power. Again, not a consistent deck, but tons of fun. Also this deck was a sleeper for me - I did not plan for it before the expansion.

    3) Highlander demonlock. Although it does run Reno-Kazakus-Krul package I would not called it renolock, because renolocks dont usually include cards like Demonheart, Kabal Trafficker, Bane of Doom, Felguard. Played it since Gatgetzan, it was always fun to get a board full of demons, buffed by Mal'Ganis, when just a turn ago you had nothing - thanks to Krul the Unshackled. Now, with addition of Bloodreaver Gul'dan you can resurrect this board if things go south.

    Honorary mention: Pruest deck called "face IS the place". I don't like face decks, but I've always wanted a face (or zoo) priest deck, because noone ever expects it from a priest. This expansion's Shadow Ascendant was a wonderfull addition, also Happy Ghoul gives your useless (for your game plan) hero power some justification. The deck is still not there yet, you really lack card draw, PW:S and clerics are not enough (and clerics are not even that good). Still experimenting with Loot Hoarder, Cult Master, Genzo, the Shark, Jeeves, some of those cards I never ever use, gives them some justification for being in my collection.

    posted a message on What do you like to lose to?

    Basically every time when I think "wait, did he really just played that card? And it was from his deck, not generated? That's a surprise!" I know that I wouldn't mind losing to that opponent. Even if it is a pirate warrior with Captain Greenskin in the deck.

    I guess the Lich King had to pull some strings in order to force Blizzard to come up with a nerf

    Wow, Blizzard managed to nerf a card without totally destroying it! That is highly unusual

    posted a message on Discuss the Nerf - Innervate

    I undestand why the nerf was needed, but as a guy, who for the last year or so only played Astral Communion type of druid (relying heavily on turn 1-2 innervate plays), I am extremely unhappy about it.

    Cairne Bloodhoof back in the days when it could fit most kinds of decks.

    "Start running prey" (Rexxar's greeting). Bonus points for clearing the whole opponent's board with his battlecry.

    posted a message on The Pepper Thread - Share your good vibes!

    The very first card I hovered my mouse over in my very first KoFT pack turned out to be the Lich King! Because of this it felt like the best pack opening ever, even though I only got 2 legendaries in 45 packs (I usually get 3-4 in around 60-80)

    posted a message on Which streamer will you watch for the expansion release?
    Quote from finniggann >>

    wait why would you watch a streamer on the first day when you could just play the game and experience cool stuff. and if you really want vods of different streams are all available afterward, I never got the interest in seeing other people open hundreds of packs anyway.

     EU gets the expansion several hours after Americas (8, I think), same goes for Asia. I will play on Americas server, but because I only do so only on releases, I have next to none good cards from previous expansions and zero desire to spend money there. I'm sure I'm not alone.

    posted a message on Which streamer will you watch for the expansion release?

    Who I want to watch: ProfessorNox (who used to be Noxious).

    Who I'll be watching: I'll be switching between several streamers trying to find one who's actually able to open packs/play (because the servers will be down).

    posted a message on (GAME) The most interesting cards of the set,

    (The most broken card of the set) - Eternal Servitude

    (The first card you'll craft) - The Lich King

    (The neutral card you think will be used in almost all decks) - Acherus Veteran

    (The worst DK card) - there are no completely bad DKs but Valeera the Hollow is probably the most overrated one.

    (The new best card of the arena) - Bonemare for neutrals, but there are also several great class cards 

    (The card that would be better if it doesn't exist) - all of the princes, but mostly valanar (4 cost)

    (The best DK card) - Gul'dan

    (The card with the most intersting mechanic) - Fatespinner. If we include noncollectables, then Army of the Dead

    posted a message on Which cards are you crafting at launch? Any goldens?

    Even though I have a suspicion that after the meta stabilizes they may proof highly overrated I'm crafting the Lich king and Gul'dan first day.

    I was already running a fun Krul deck since MSoG and the Dk looks like a perfect fit. As for the Lich King, there must always be the Lich King! Also the cards he gave you look so different from collectable cards, you just have to try and evaluate them for yourself

    posted a message on ShiftCon - Tavern Brawl #113

    very meh brawl now... But can be a decent way of introducing new cards to f2p players tomorrow (although you get way less spells than minions and almost no chance for heroes, except with some Burgle type cards). Is it standard format btw?
