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.
