    The drawback to this card is that you must first attack with it, which you will not always be able to do optimally, whereas with Greenskin you get the +1/+1 without being forced to make a sub-optimal trade. This is better than Greenskin, yes, but not overwhelmingly so. Greenskin being a pirate is also relevant.

    Yes. Not the top 5 cards or 5 specific cards. 5 random cards from your deck.

    It's not the best. It's not the worst. A lot of decks just don't "feel" good, and  that's the sticking point for a lot of people. I know it is for me.

    The only playable classes that aren't heavily reliant on various forms of RNG are Warrior and Demon Hunter.

    Highlander decks are singletons and DQA is one of the biggest RNG problems in the game.
    Druid is incredibly dependent on hitting ramp early.
    Priest, Rogue, and Mage are RNG fiestas.

    Paladin, Shaman, and recently Warlock are really underpowered compared to the other classes

    I agree with most of what you said but I think you are wrong to confuse random card generation with luck. That may seem oxymoronic, but as in all games with chance, it is about manipulating randomness to favor you more often than not. Rogue requires dozens of seemingly insignificant decisions and orderings that quickly separate skill ranges amongst players. While there is random generation, I think it requires a great deal of skill to play at an elite level.

    Having said that, Mage is far gone. Once you are able to play it optimally, it becomes complete chance. Basically, at high legend, Mage is crapshoot because for a very good player it is easy to play outside of one or two big decisions throughout a game.

    Druid is an understandable complaint, I'm indifferent about it but I can accept that it is not very fun to play against.

    Priest is certainly heavily RNG based, but the class as a whole is not too strong that it's a significant issue for me.

    I'm going to disenchant them for the additional dust as I don't play wild.

    My guess is that the MMR intended to be released in April is already in place since the recent update. We are playing players so similar to us in MMR that a win or loss is hardly significant according to the original ranking structure.
