    posted a message on D5 to Legend - Any suggestions for making the climb?

    Legend more than anything is about the grind. Sure you need to play a good deck and know how to play it well against all your matchups, but the difference between legend and high diamond is you have to play a lot of games. I saw someone said that they auto concede their bad matchups. I usually give it a couple of turns to see if I have a chance against my bad matchups. I agree though that you have to just accept that you will lose some matches and move on. I have also seen it said to not focus on your rank just play for wins. That is also good advise. 

    I first got legend about a year ago. Was not working and had the time to spend playing a couple hours a day for the month. I took Galakrond Rogue to diamond 2, but then hit a wall. I kept fighting between rank 4-2. Towards the end of the month every time I started winning I was met with non stop aggro demon hunters. No matter how I changed the deck I still had a bad matchup, and changing the deck made other matchups worse. I finally switched to Big Dragon Druid and got there. My point being that it is good to stick with a deck, but sometimes if you are facing a specific meta you might want to change the deck at that time.

    Overall though just be prepared to play a lot of games and don't let losses bother you. That first time I reached legend was on the last day of the month with only a couple hours left.

    Good Luck

    Priest players did this to themselves. All your stupid douchebag control pushed the meta to hyper aggro. I don't like playing dumb fast aggro, but was left with no choice because of you turds.

    Thinking about it more I would probably go Frost Lich Jaina. When death knights were in standard who played Frost Lich Jaina first often times decided the winner in mirror matches.

    Umm, why no Kalecgos in the deck? You are running dragons and he is a standard card.

    I would probably run a highlander deck. For the single wild card I would consider Ice Block, Reno Jackson, and Frost Lich Jaina.

    posted a message on How To Beat Highlander Mage with Gala Rogue?

    I played Gala Rogue to diamond 3 last season. I mostly played the secret build, but also tried stealth and highlander builds. The stealth and highlander seemed to do better versus aggro, and secret does better against the control builds. I am playing secret rogue right now at diamond 6. Checking stats I won 6 out of 7 games against mages, and the one I lost he caught some really good rng off of the box and dragonqueen alex.

    When playing against mage always keep in mind their boad wipes Zeph, Reno's, Box to avoid overcommitting to the board. With the secret build you get Hanar which can really mess with a control deck. Hanar has won me games against both mage and priest. The other thing I am always looking for against control decks is how to get burst lethal on my opponent. Try to get eviscerates and other spell damage from lackeys. You can also shadowstep Kronx for 10 damage in one turn.

    posted a message on Galakrond vs Highlander mage

    I started last season with Highlander mage. I don't think my games against priest went that great, but my luck with rng and the box was also not great. I even lost a game once because my Solarian Prime Conjurer's Calling my opponent's minion and gave him 2 worse minions for me to deal with. I was losing a lot of games to Galakrond Rogue so I switched to Gala Rogue and climbed to Diamond 3 with it. I checked my stats and I never lost a game to mage. Maybe try Rogue.

    Why not play Emperor Thaurissan instead of the quest?

    WooHoo!

    Just made Legend for the first time. Secret Rogue got me to Diamond 3 and my own version of Dragon Spell Druid got me to Legend. My biggest take away is persistence and only worry about winning each game at a time. Plus I was able to think about getting my Druid to golden. I made Legend with 501 ranked wins.

    Feels Good

    posted a message on Yup, finally after 4 years

    Congratulations. I have been playing since 2015 and this is the first time I am trying for legend. I had previously made rank 5 and never had the time or felt like doing the grind. I keep bouncing between rank 3 and 2. Secret Galakrond Rogue got me to rank 5. I could make it as far as rank 3 and then I would see demon hunters constantly and fall back. I tried Highlander Hunter and my results were about the same. I just kept hitting a wall at 3 star rank 3. Yesterday I started playing Dragon Spell Druid. Weirdly I have now only seen one demon hunter, but I see priests constantly.  Yesterday I was beating most priests, but today the King Anduin's have been having all the answers. I finally by the end of the day made it to rank 2, and then fell back to rank 3. I am not sure what to play atm. I am thinking about going back to Highlander Hunter. What were your good and bad matchup's with it?

    posted a message on Help with Galakrond Secret Rogue

    I also recently starting playing the deck. Playing against it I could see it was really powerful. I also lost plenty of games to the deck. However, it has a weakness to decks that push a lot of pressure and smash face. Without any taunts main that can be expected. And sometimes other value based control decks will beat it. 

    I think Rogue in general is a very high skill based class. It can be very powerful, but wins on very narrow margins. It always feels like you have to be calculating and planning many things with the class. And small errors will cost you games.

    You need to play very differently depending on your opponent. If you are facing aggro rush you need to fight for board and tempo. Use your Blackjack Stunners early to gain tempo, and control the board. If you are facing another value based control you need to get as much value as you can, and plan for a way to burst them down. Hanar can really mess with a control decks game plans. Kronx can be abused with Shadowstep and other recurring cards. And use your Ethereal Lackey's to find spells to help you burst down your opponent.

    posted a message on Just me, or is Tombs of Terror far harder than the Dalaran heist?

    I have found early game tempo is really important in this adventure. Finley with Maxwell helped me beat both heroic bosses. Wind Fury and Shield hero power also worked really well.
