That was a "fun" run
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.
...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.
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.
So, playing my Burgle Rogue against Big Priest in Wild. I think i gave him a taste of his own medicine. So the general plan is to smash his face asap and i am more or less geeting by.
Blink Fox gave me Mass Dispel, which i used for his first Obsidian Statue. It's turn 7, i have some minions on board and to get a big Edwin VanCleef i used Preparation on Pick Pocket, which gave me Mindgames and Vivid Nightmare and some other card i can't quite remember. So, big Edwin get. Next turn i hit his face with everything i have and use Mindgames and get Ragnaros the Firelord which i then copy with Vivid Nightmare. DIE INSECT.
Should have nerfed the new boy instead, and not the Reckless Experimenter. But at least they did something
Again they proove that they are designing cards without considering all the interractions of those cards with the existing ones. And if a degenerate combo/a broken interraction appears - they nerf the existing ones and not the new ones that actually caused the problem (Shudderwock -> nerf the Saronite chain gang; Druid op high cost cards -> nerf mana ramp (a basic/classic cards), Rogue mining pick and tutor card -> nerf Preparation, sure, why not?!).
I don't know if I am more happy about them, listening to the community and preventing a broken combo to see the light of day, or I am more pissed of another example of them, acting like little kids, not admitting that the new card should be change before release and that they should do a better job of testing their new ideas and not just throw sh*t on the wall and see what sticks.
And I am also pissed that some people are just being blinded by the 200, 400, x amount of dust they are getting from all those nerfs. Remember people, a new expansion is coming in about 2 months, another 135 or so new cards and guess what - they will fuck up again. But let's see which basic/classic card / which class will get the nerf-hammer this time to atone for their new missprints.
i'd say its worse than Deathlord simply becouse of battlecry. On play you summon a minion, so opponent can hit with it the next turn, while Deathlord had deathrattle, you played it, opponent killed it, summoned a minion but couldnt attack with it...
I can't wait till all this bullshit rotates out please fuck off
Alexstrasza is such a "fun" card... Turn 1 - 15 damage, such skill much wow...
Well, ppl have been complaining about the state of the meta game for years and priest never had a meta defining deck in the history of this game.... so maybe what we need is less "me go face" and more "do me trade"? :P
Any Otk Priest
And no i do not play only smorc, i am known as a control player (handlock mostly) and i still hate priest more than any other class since beta. It's the only class which more boring than warrior and that says a lot. Plus in my experience it has the most toxic playerbase in ranked. Heck, even lich king had to silence anduin lol!!!
