    posted a message on Why there is so much hate on Mercenary mode or on Hearthstone in general?

    Blizzard bombarded us with information without any access to a demo or beta. The most heavily promoted thing we know for sure about Mercenaries are those pricey pre-orders. Monetisation is fine in a free game, but when that's what you put your emphasis on, gamers (that were already complaining about prices earlier this year because of battle passes) are not going to trust you.

    I want to be excited for a new mode, I want to be able to enjoy hearthstone without having to worry about skinner-box bullshit. Blizzard just mangled this announcement.

    They should have built a working demo or beta, released it, and then the pre-orders after a week or so. It certainly might've prevented people from worrying about hearthstone turning into Raid Shadow Legends...which it still might do.

    posted a message on Gadgetzan Auctioneer. Is he a problem?

    This is not the first time Gadgetzan Auctioneer has been under this kind of scrutiny. He's caused problems in the past and will continue to do so. Whenever he has a slot in the meta it's always to increase the pace of decks that aren't fun to play against or to facilitate some obscure combo.

    I love obscure combos, but maybe it's time he should be retooled.

    I play BG pretty frequently and have seen none. At least now I know.

    posted a message on Can't see alternate skins?

    I've not bought any of the skin packs for BG. Nor have I seen any of them on my opponents. So, you can only see the skins you buy and apply to the heroes? That's kind of lame. Isn't part of the draw of skins being seen in them? The whole FOMO thing? Seems weird that Blizzard wouldn't use it to sell more packs. I guess it doesn't matter, I wasn't going to buy them anyway. It just seems weird to not be able to see other players skins.

    posted a message on Hearthstone not fun in this state

    I think Gadgetzan felt worse than this. Demon Hunter right as it was released was the worst point for me but it didn't last long thankfully.

    posted a message on No Spell Quest Priest OTK!

    High Abbess Alura + Desperate Prayer is a combo that lets you always get Alura's effect to play the shard, rather than relying on Venomous Scorpid

    posted a message on Quest Mage is unstoppable.

    I've got no stats or anything and I'm a pretty average player, but can say I've had favourable (not massively favourable but pretty positive) matchups when playing Token Druid and Rat Hunter against Quest Mage.

    In Token Druid, if I can play a decent Composting on 2-3 minions before the mage plays their first aoe, then I'll usually have the gas to win outright. It has enough mid-game value from Oracle of Elune to keep you going, I find.

    With Rat Hunter, if I can play Stormwind Piper and Rodent Nest on curve then that will go a long way too. Just endless deathrattles and a decent Devouring Swarm usually keep enough pressure for me to win.

    Don't get me wrong though, Quest Mage is not a fun deck to play against at all. My eyes glaze over on my opponent's turn because I know whatever it is they're doing it's not something I can change. It's amazing to me that Incanter's Flow has been untouched by the devs this whole time. I've given up on playing Quest Priest, which I was really excited for.

    We had the peak of Dude Paladin with Baku, we know where this goes. I wish they would have pushed a different archetype because this one is a little boring imo. It's kinda disappointing.

    posted a message on Return of Mind Shatter?

    The new Benedictus card includes Mind Shatter as a "related card". Currently playing a second Shadowform just refreshes your Hero Power instead of giving you Mind Shatter which deals 3.

    If they're pushing Shadowform as a strategy in United in Stormwind, maybe Mind Shatter will return?

    Thoughts?

    Thanks! I made those changes, I think you're totally right! Not sure what I was thinking with Thalnos, I guess I was just overestimated Paladin's lack of draw.

    You sometimes get poison shenanigans with the Valeera DK, but a Kingsbane is a better target for that kind of thing. But rogue is losing so much good stuff from RoS and DoD that it could find a spot somewhere.

    No, and even if they did it wouldn't make Xaril worth adding just for this imo.

    posted a message on Kurtrus Ashfallen

    A minion who removes a couple 2-3 drops and then hangs around as a 3/4 is a great tool to bridge the early and mid game. But getting this consistently at the right moment is just about luck, as hand-managing in the early game to optimize Outcasts is less of an option. So I think it's pretty balanced. In the mid-late game this is essentially less important, a 3/4 with a multishot attached. Which is fine, honestly. I think he could find a spot in some decks.

    It's certainly not an effect that you can put at the center of a deck, but hey, Dire Mole found a way into Hunter decks before.
