    I'm glad that you asked:

    1) Look, I will be completely honest with you. I honestly think, that Seance is a good card, because it's flexible. My real issue is that it's a spell and it has anti-synergies with Shadow Visions. You see, imagine when you are in a tough situation and you desperately need a specific answer. Against aggro decks you might want to fetch a copy of Spirit Lash with Shadow Visions, against Big Priest you might be looking for an Entomb. You don't want to see Seance popping up in the discovery pool, because it will lower the chances of finding the desired card and this will affect the outcome of the game.

    2) In the past I ran 2x Psychic Screams, in order to counter Big Priest better. But right now I figured I need a slightly cheaper board clear (against some decks like pirate kingsbane rogue casting a board wipe too late will end up losing you the game). Even Shamans are ruthless and you need to deal with their board ASAP.

    3) Regarding Mass Hysteria - I was also skeptical about this spell for the same reasons. I also didn't like the RNG aspect, but it proved to be more useful as expected. In some situations Excavated Evil is better (against some tokens decks), but Mass Hysteria allows you to deal with all kinds of boards. I remember the first time I used it I was facing a tempo mage (that had Kirin Tor Mage, Flamewaker and something else). If I cast Excavated Evil, I would have left the Flamewaker alive and it would have killed me. Thx to Mass Hysteria I managed to clear the whole board, to survive and to win thx to Amara, Warden of Hope. Mass Hysteria is extremely useful against big priest, even shamans and sticky boards in general.

    Although it can get a little messy with N'Zoth drawing a bunch of cards.

    Glad you enjoy it. Well, I added N'Zoth for a specific reason - I decided I need something, which will make a huge impact on the board (call it value if you want; I wanted to resurrect big minions like Sylvanas Windrunner and Sludge Belcher). Sometimes he also helps me complete the quest faster. I'm saying this, because if you are comfortable with having 2 Loot Hoarders and you always want to draw cards, then you can cut this legendary. I think the better solution would be not to play the Loot Hoarders against control decks (or at least 1), so your N'Zoth doesn't mill cards.

    posted a message on anyone notice any weapon removal in wild?

    Tbh I have seen deck lists running 1 ooze, in order to counter Cubelock, Pirate Kingsbane Rogue, maybe Tempo Mage and Pirate Warrior (which are rare encounters). So this isn't an uncommon tech, but if you run 2 cutlasses, you should be fine.

    Yes, finally a game, where I can rob my opponent in peace:

    (sorry for the pic, apparently I took it too early. I got 1 Mal'Ganis, 2 Voidlords and the rest were Voidwalkers.

    Brief explanation - since I reached legend with my Deathrattle Thief Priest (aka the one in the signature), I decided to play my meme Steal Priest again. I faced this Renolock, who at first I thought ran Mecha'thun. They were drawing a lot of cards and had an Emperor Thaurissan. In one of the earliest turns I played Sylvanas Windrunner, which got destroyed. They played N'Zoth, the Corruptor into a Voidcaller and Voidlord. I played 2x Twilight's Call, which summoned Crystalline Oracles and Sylvani, cast Shadow Word: Pain on the Voidcaller and I stole the rest with Spirit Lash. Mal'Ganis got Entomb-ed several turns after.

    Anyway my opponent was reaching the final card of their deck and I thought the game was over for me. In order to meme with them, I played their DK and BOI was I pleased. After a while I realized their DK was the last card, so I sacrificed yet another Oracle to steal it. Fortunately for me they weren't playing a combo deck, so I managed to out-value them and beat them.

    I found some older pics from when I was still laddering:

    I know I overcommited, but if I played only 2 or 3 giants, they would have conceded anyway and I wouldn't have had the pleasure of memeing them. This was way cooler. Not to mention, that they ran out of threats, so even if they had something like Twisting Nether I would have won.

    posted a message on Wild Even Shaman ranks 3 to 1

    Although I don't play Even Shaman in wild (I went to legend with Deathrattle Steal Priest), I think Rapidosamurai is right. While I was laddering, I saw many even shamans running Golakka Crawler. And for a good reason. At its core even shaman is a mid-range deck and thus it will lose to hyper aggressive opponents. This is why you have to destroy their tempo ASAP. Things like Devolve, Maelstrom Portal will help you a lot. Teching a crab won't feel punishing, since rogue is a common encounter.

    As for Dragon Priests - I don't play Even Shaman and I can't say anything from first experience. Duskbreaker is certainly OP. There is no doubt in that. Mojomaster Zihi will proof useful in this MU, but if you are behind on tempo in the mid-game and they keep your threats in check with their dragons, then nothing can help you. Imho you have to fight for the board at all cost.

    posted a message on [WILD] Headed for Legend! - S58 January 2019

    Just went to legend with the following deck:

    [Legend; S.58] The Heist
    Export to BBCode Export to Cockatrice Export to MarkDown Export to Html Clone this deck
    Minion (12) Ability (17) Playable Hero (1)
    Loading Collection

    It was a fun experience, but I am sad, cuz' I couldn't succeed with my meme one. When the meta consists of many hyper aggressive decks (such as odd and kingsbane rogue), the meme one doesn't stand a chance. Well, at least I had the pleasure of stealing someone's cards w/ Sylvanas Windrunner, Entomb and Archbishop Benedictus.

    Facing a roper atm. Fucking hell, get over your loss. Why are you delaying the game needlessly?

    I am watching Queen in youtube, but it's annoying how I have to deal with a wall of armour until I get the victory screen.

    Amm, why do I see my user name being changed to "user-100009690"? It should be "Kovachut" as ususal. Can someone revert it back? txh in advance

     That sure is weird, I'm going to make a guess that it has something to do with the site move to Fandom. Have you given your consent to the move? Even I wasn't able to access your profile but changing your name back resurrected it.

    Could you change my nickname to ChibHormones? It got changed to some "user" and I dont know why :/

     You were more unlucky, name change didn't resurrect your profile for me :(

     Done, and profile seems to work too.

    I’d like mine changed to Siegfrieddo

    Thanks!

     Sure, done!

    Apparently this has something to do with the site moving to fandom. I didn't give my consent, so I had the same issue as you did. I went to the thread, where people can change their usernames, and it worked for me.

    I hate losing to players making stupid mistakes, especially when they play hyper aggressive decks and where the card draw RNG decides who will win.

    So I was facing this kingsbane pirate rogue, who cast Eviscerate on my Sludge Belcher w/o triggering it first, then they played Southsea Deckhand. They killed the belcher with the dagger and sacrificed the deckhand into the 1/2. But ofc their stupid 12-attack weapon will carry them throughout the game.

    Went 1-3 in arena just because my opponents had amazing decks. In all of my losses the opposing players had good legendaries - Leeroy, Keleseth (w/ no other 2-drops), LK. I rarely get one, but when I do, I get presented the Darkness, Azalina Soulthief (not exaggerating btw) and rarely something useful as Baron Geddon. I had plenty of early game options, but I didn't draw them when I needed them. Instead I always had 4 and higher drops in the starting hand.

    God, this is why I hate the arena format and the RNG.

    [edit] Inb4 the player with Keleseth was a paladin. They played Stonehill defender and got Tirion...

    Just survived the biggest Big Priest BS ever.

    So you know those unfair broken openings, when Barnes pulls a Y'shaarj? Well, this happened again and this time their Y'shaarj pulled Kel'thuzad. I had the coin, so I had the possibility to cast Lightbomb, but the problem was, that Kel'thuzad would resurrect everything. I knew I was f*cked. My opponent cast Shadow Word: Pain on their 1/1 Y'shaarj and cast Resurrect. Kel'thuzad resurrected the Old god and the summoned from a spell Y'shaarj recruited a Ragnaros.

    So let's recap - on turn 5 my opponent had 3/3 Barnes, 2x 10/10 Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound, 6/8 Kel'Thuzad and Ragnaros the Firelord. ON TURN 5. WHAT THE ACTUAL FLYING FUCK. So I knew I had to rely on Mass Hysteria to save me and it did. It left a Y'shaarj however, but at least it killed KT. My opponent cast Eternal Servitude and summoned Rag and the Y'shaarj summoned the OG Y'shaarj from the deck. I cast Lightbomb, but things were looking pretty grim because I was @ 2 health and could die to another Rag ping. Unfortunately for my opponent, they didn't have another resurrection spell, I managed to heal through potions and spirit lash (+ bloodmage thalnos) and finally thx to Amara.

    My opponent rage quit after a few turns. :P

    It only applies if you haven't opened packs from a certain set beforehand. Since you did, you might not get a legendary. :C

    But I don't want to jinx you, hope you get something good.

    Just had two very disgusting wins as Steal Priest.

    So I casually queued against this even shaman. Thx to my lucky card draw, I got some oracles at the beginning of the game and I managed to steal some reactive cards (Jade Lightning + Fire Elemental). I also had AoEs of my own, so I was prepared for their threats. At one moment I top-decked Chameleos which warned me about Windfury and Flametongue Totem. They played 2 4 mana 7/7s and hoped I wouldn't deal with them. :P Anyway at one moment I played a stolen Genn Greymane and the 4 mana windfury guy, which I stole thx to Chameleos. Eventually they dealt with my BS. At one moment they had enough and went all in. They played Thing from Below, bunch of screamed totems and a Sea Giant. Unfortunately for them my Anduin was waiting. They conceded afterwards.

    After this game I waited a while and I queued against the same person again. This time they played rogue and I thought they were counter queuing with something more aggressive. But get this, they were playing Millzoth. I played my Archbishop Benedictus, they copied him with Gang Up and we both diluted our decks. Unfortunately for my opponent, my best cards were in my hand and I killed them with the DK. They couldn't find their Antique Healbots.

    I can't think of a more fitting song than this:
