    This card is much better than Shieldbearer. Being a mech helps with mech combos, and being 0 cost helps feed Rogue combos, Van Cleef, Questing Adventurer, Illidan, etc. It could find a place in some specialised decks.

    Do you start facing opponents who have decks with the new cards (which would be completely unfair due to GvG power creep)? If so, I'd better finish up my current run and not start any new Arena games until GvG launches.

    This is useful if you managed to survive an aggro onslaught till Turn 9, and your opponent is running out of steam and the game is starting to turn in your favour, but your health is too low to kill him before he kills you (especially with Hunter's hero ability which cannot be blocked). Basically it buys you more time to put your big minions into play. Probably not a very frequent occurrence though.

    posted a message on [Confirmed] Gadgetzan Auctioneer Nerf 5>6 Mana

    I don't play Miracle, but I'm sad to see it being killed (by the new Trogg cards too) since it was such a unique and different archetype. Gadgetzan certainly wasn't a problem post-Naxx so I don't know why Blizzard chose to nerf it. It seems like Blizzard's nerfs are coming 6 months too late when the meta has already moved on.

    I haven't played for a few days, but suddenly today, i-ve played 3 arena matches. All against Paladins, all with Tyrion...

    Did they somehow found a way to cheat the card selection of arena? Can I be THAT unlucky? The probability for this to happen should be really low.

    Yeah, how did they get a Game of Thrones card in Hearthstone? Cheaters!

    Because that is too slow and I think the meta is gonna slow down but it is not gonna be slow enough for a threat heavy Pali control deck to be played. On top of that you expect hold onto this card for 14turns, and thats from turn one, if that does truly become a thing you are gonna see very fast decks that will punish this play.

    Firstly, you don't need to wait 14 turns for 14 minions to die. On Turn 5+ you might be playing 2 or even 3 minions each turn.

    Secondly, you can't criticise this card on the assumption that Paladin control wouldn't be viable in the new meta. I think we should give Blizzard the benefit of the doubt and assume that control decks will have a place in the meta. Otherwise, your criticisms of Bolvar can be levied at any other slow card.

    Why does everyone keep focusing on the "best case" you can get on Turn 5? You can still get insane value by playing this on later turns, especially if your opponent has already squandered his silences on things like Sludge Belcher or Sunwalker (or even Tirion). Imagine plopping this down on Turn 10 with an accompanying taunt. You might be getting a 15/7 for 5 mana, and your opponent will be caught by surprise.

    Handlocks are really hard to deal with - basically you need to be either aggro enough that you kill them before they can start putting up their taunted giants, or you need to be control enough that you can deal with taunted giants. If you're not on either extreme then you're screwed. But I find them not too bad because at least their decks are expensive and they are not as common as the cheap aggro decks.

    posted a message on [Speculation] Goblins VS Gnomes release date!

    I think it will be released the coming week. Makes no sense to end the voting and blog posts unless the expansion was going to be released soon. It would be like building up lots of hype and then letting the hype fizzle out for 1-2 weeks as people get bored with no new information.

    Play Arena. Arena is always fair in that everyone has the same chance of getting good cards and it doesn't depend on your collection. As a new player I played Arena almost exclusively until I earned enough gold and cards to make competitive decks.
