That was a "fun" run
The beauty of Renolock, is that it's a deck you can build almost any way you want. There's no set way to do it. You can try to build the deck around N'Zoth. Or Bloodreaver Gul'dan. Or both. Or neither. You can try to include more early game, or more late game. Experiment and see what works for you.
Playing my Tess rogue against Mech'thun quest priest. The deck has 2 copies of Drakkari Trickster. It's mostly for fun deck, as Tricksters do not synergise well with Espionage, but why not. So, my opponent has 5 cards in hand and one in deck. I play my trickster and it gives him Academic Espionage.
Think I faced like 20+ mage since this new expansion, all of them with baku.
So original like wow
And there was much rejoicing.
...and if Tomb Pillager were still standard, I would love to give this combo a try. The danger is, if you don't go second, your combo becomes unreliable. In wild, I may try this with Skycap'n Kragg instead of Southsea Captain though--that is 27 damage (15 random in intervals of 3 and 12 charging minion damage, leaving 18/21 in stats on board)
Theoretically you can try to pull some WANTED! shenanigans, but that's not a card you want to run in a pirate deck.
Actually, I do not think that it applies in that way; because the mana reduction from the first Haunting Vision will probably reduce the mana costs of the second Haunting Vision which you do not have to pay because of Electra Stormsurge. And then the spell you cast afterwards only gets the mana reduction from the second Haunting Vision. So you will discover one shaman spell, get one random and a 3 mana reduction for the next spell you cast this turn. At least this is how I would interpret it ...
If it works like Electra with Prep, then you do get 6 mana discount on the next spell in addition to discovering 2 spells.
Interesting. Do you have any official statement? Or are there any present overload benefitting cards that indicate that this mechanic is working that way?
Just because I understand the wording "while you have overloaded mana crystals" means only the turn after you overload them (i.e. when they actually are overloaded).
I want an official clarification regarding the subject as well.
Just watch original reveal video.
Edit: Would be better if the indication that you will have overload next turn also counts for the buff.
It counts. Overloaded crystals count as overloaded on the turn a card with overload is played and on the next turn as well.
