Trade only? : Yes, I'll show you my quest, then you go first.
Auto battlers are not for everyone. And no, I'm not saying that people that like auto battlers are more intelligent and/or strategic or anything like that but it isn't appealing to everyone. I've been playing it all day and I'm having a lot of fun but I can see how it can be a bit boring after a couple games for some people. Just don't burn yourself, play constructed or arena (Whatever is your shit) and jump into battlegrounds from time to time.
Mechs are for sure stronger, If you get a solid mechs + deathrattle board there is nothing that beats you, started playing yesterday and already have 6 top 1 finishes and 5 of those were mechs deathrattle builds and the other one was indeed with beasts but mechs beat everything.
Dude every HS meta ever will always come down to a Rock-paper-scissors meta no matter what, it only is more or less evident.
Or tell me where is the last meta you can remember where there wasn't a top deck (or class) that was superior to everything and then something pops-out that obliterates that top dog but then something else destroy that deck but it also happens to get rekt by the top dog so it just becomes a vicious circle.
Like honestly even the "best" metas have this type of relation in between the meta decks. At best it'll be like a square of strong decks instead of a triangle.
I guess the new patch to implement the Battlegrounds fucked up the quest (like usual, Blizzard can't put something in the game without fucking up other 10 things). I didn't get my quest today nor am I able to re-roll my quest that I had left from yesterday and there's no way I completed it as I played yesterday until 9PM and just now I logged back in. We'll just get the same response as always: " Tee hee, sorry for fucking the game up, we're a small indie company with no funds so just bare with us for the next 24 hours until our one and only IT guy works non stop to fix this catastrophe. We know you'll not ask for even one pack for the inconvenience as you all know we are simply an up-coming company that can't afford this luxuries, byeeee"
Why is this being voted as meta-defining? The card is just bad. Not Duskfallen Aviana levels of bad like some people are suggesting but it isn't good either.
First of all getting a 4 mana 8/8 is relevant, that's a big body, but if you play it on curve then you're eliminating all the tempo you are gaining with all those stats at such low cost. Why? Well cause you get 6 extra EMPTY mana crystals which means you have to simply end your turn but you're giving your opponent 10 full crystals for their next turn. So, you cheated out like 3 mana (8/8 is arguably a vainilla 7 mana minion), but then giving full mana to your opponent means that you technically also lose 3 mana so you really aren't doing much.
This will maybe work if paladin gets some more class or neutral solid big boys and then you play some sort of EZ BIG EZ PALLY, cause if you're just gonna ramp your opponent up and still play some aggro or mid-range type paladin then you're gonna lose a lot. Giving your opponent mana is never a good idea, and no, the fact that it's a mirrored effect doesn't make it good or decent, just look at Biology Project, It has always sucked, so now imagine ramping your opponent for 6 mana, sounds even worse. Oh and btw even if that EZ BIG EZ paladin deck was a real thing then it's gonna be brick city all the way through; you'll rely completely on drawing Nozdormu the Timeless early or your hand is gonna be dead forever. You're not druid from 2 years ago which has a lot of different ramp cards or Priest which had all the resurrect cards. Bad card overall
Dude, this is straight-up misogynistic bullshit.
You are calling into question whether someone actually deserves to be in a tournament because she's a woman.
Saying you aren't trying to be rude does not make it better.
Read my statement again. Im calling into question how one person - unknown until now just instantly won all tournaments and got into Blizzcon. That could be any gaming minority. It is popular to pay attention to minorities today in all areas, thats why Ive asked. No need to be that narrow-minded.
Or maybe I miss something? And she is actually really well known popular and skilled, like streaming a lot, high ladder places etc and Im just missing it?
Funny how you aren't even trying to ask for RNGLeaoh which was the other Chinese player on top 4, which shouldn't be recognizable to you if VKLion isn't either. Maybe cause he's a dude and Lion's a girl? Just cause you don't know a player doesn't mean they aren't really good and big player.
China has a different system from all other GMs, if you took a second to think about it before writing all that non sense you would realize that on the Asia-Pacific region there aren't any chinese players (where they should be located geographically). Chinese players qualify through a different format (not sure how it works honestly) and that's how they get to this Blizzcon GMs finals, or any other big tournament finals for that matter. The chinese HS scene is completely secluded to the point there aren't even many streams if any in most cases.
You could've had an honest doubt but it really shocks me that you would doubt her "credentials" in order to be there but not mention anything about the other chinese player in the tournament and then try suggesting she was there as some sort of marketing strategy to push more girls into the game, that's mysoginist af. Also trying to suggest that "just after starting to play HS she instantly came to finals?" is just the most retarded question I've read/heard in a long time, she would probably whoop your ass hard with budget decks.
Also she's THE CHAMPION now so you probably feel stupid rn :)
So from what I can see you have 2 ways of killing a mecha'thun (that gives you a win obviously). You can either make it 1 mana through Jepetto, which is unreliable and obviously not the main plan of the deck and then you have what I would actually hope is your main plan of copying mecha'thun with floop which is obviously much easier to kill.
This second gameplan is perfectly reasonable on a vaccum, but it's kinda not so good because you only have wrath, starfall and bes to kill your mecha'thun, and the first 2 cards are pretty prime removal you have for opponent's minions so you might not have them to kill your floop. Other than that I don't get why aren't you running Kun in this list, it's literally a free 7/7 that heals you for 10 hp, so it means you can drop an extra card from your hand for cost 0 which gives you a 7/7 and 10 health, pretty solid for literally any druid deck that plays the quest (which are like 99% of them). Druid got rekt with naturalize being HoF'ed it was such a nice utility card but now you have to put on a bunch of extra work to kill the floop and you can't kill the actual mecha'thun consistenly.
Having said that, on a realistic meta environment, I don't think this deck would really work. As druid you have a solid amount of draw, pretty much any druid with quest will fatigue on most games but you still have to play everything in your hand and then spend a whole turn dropping mecha'thun and finding the means to kill it(has to be played as the last minion or you'll ruin your floop) and save both floop and one spell that can kill it for the entire game, that just seems way too slow for the current meta. With decks like evolve shaman (quest and questless) and all the multi revival meta decks rn (priest and multi n'zoth stuff like rogue and warlock) you simply just succumb to all that pressure before being able to drop your entire hand and then still needing an extra turn to play the mecha'thun.
You don't need Thaurissan and it honestly feels clunky, you might not be able to ever play it and it'll clog your hand.
For the simpliest combo you need 3 cards: Elise, Kun and Banker and it's a 2 turn set up. First turn you play Elise, which means you have 2x Kuns and 2xBankers and then you banker the Elise. Next turn you draw Elise and from there you go infinite. You play Kun, then Elise and then Banker the Elise every turn. You get 10 armor, a 7/7, 5/5 and a 2/2 and avoid the fatigue ticks every turn.
The other more efficient combo is with floop in hand as well as the previously stated cards, the first turn set up is the same and then you go Kun into floop into elise into banker. On this one you get 20 armor, a 7/7, 3/4, 5/5. 2/2 every turn and also avoid fatigue.
As you can see you don't need the Thaurissan to enable any combo at all and he'll actually clog your hand sometimes as you can't afford to play him. I cut him on my list and kept the Phaoris in my list, he's a extra threat and it works nicely with the deck. Also don't run overflow, that's too much draw, it often sits in your hand or it mills a couple cards which isn't good. Cut Pounce as well and then run double Worthy expedition, it's definitely a better card. You could also run Cenarius if you have it.
Well the fact that you consider a 6 paragraphs text, that you don't even have to read, long doesn't speak too kindly on your reading habits my dude. Just saying.
Well If you read carefully https://www.hearthpwn.com/news/6970-behind-the-tavern-doors-see-whats-coming-to it clearly says that the free copies will be removed when the even ends... The event ends Octobet 31st. So I did do my research, it's not my fault if Blizzard's devs can't even avoid being ambigous af cause if they talk about the DOOM IN THE TOMB EVENT and then proceed to say the cards will disappear when the EVENT ends then that could means they disappear November 1st or they are taking the whole '23 cards wild coming back to Standard' as an EVENT on its own.
Either way it's not my fault. I'm either right and you guys are wrong and should start worrying or Blizzard can't even hire competent devs that are not ambigous as they speak/write.
