    The crazy thing about this board is that it was nearly full at the start of the turn and that the opponent is already dead.  Nani?

    posted a message on How do you manage your emotions while playing Hearthstone?

    I don't tilt, but I find certain modes of losing more demoralizing than others.  Trying to smorc your opponent as a control deck while waiting for the inevitable OTK feels terrible.  Likewise, running out of damage/steam but still sticking around in case you get lucky as aggro/board deck is also not so fun.  On the other hand, I enjoy figuring out how to survive against boards even when I'm not favored.  Leeroy topdecks don't effect me as much as they should.  That's why I'm usually playing combo decks or control decks that have combo disruption

    If you're tilting against specific archetypes, try playing decks that counter them.  Figure out what's tilting so that you can avoid it

    Quote from felixhana >>

    Control Mage need something like the old Medeiv and some good big spell to be viable, anyway

    Control mage already has lots of value from hexlord and late game tempo from the loa.  What it really needs is a win condition.  Most of the OTKs are rotating and you can run mojomaster to counter mecha'thun, but there's still Malygos and deck size increasing mechanics to consider

    Quote from KingSevault>>
    Quote from NightCrawl3r>>

    That's doubtful.  We already have a "class leader" for mage and warlock.  I don't know what the theme is for the second class legendary this expansion but I don't think they would overcrowd by adding more characters from previous expansions

     Who's the class leader for mage? Kalecgos is only one of two class legendaries

    Yeah, I mean Kalecgos.  If you look back at most the recent expansions, there is usually one legendary that's the "face" of the class for the expansion and one supporting legendary.  A scientist and their invention; a loa and their champion; a death knight and ... some side-character; an Un'goro native from their classes' tribe and a quest.  There are some expansions that don't fit, like WW, but since they are hyping up and focusing on the 5 villains so much, I'm guessing the 2nd legendary of the class probably isn't going to be on the same level (at least not thematically)

    If Medivh was part of this expansion, he'd be one of the primary characters because, like the villains, he's already a reoccurring character.  Meanwhile, Kalecgos doesn't seem like a side-kick kind of guy... Actually, I've changed my mind.  I've heard somewhere that Houndmaster Shaw is supposedly the hunter leader, which would mean all the main defenders are going to be reoccurring characters like the villains.  The fact that Kalecgos isn't a reoccurring character might mean he's not one of the main heroes, making Medivh the most obvious candidate for mage

    Quote from 5HARK5 >>

    He can come on my back anytime. He's not that great looking but I like the rich boys hehehe. Cauteeee. 

    I disagree.  He's got the dark-handsome vibes going on and is likely popular with all those girls who are in to the bad boys.  That said, it's hard to compete when we've got bare chested elves and well muscled orcs in tiny vests.  HS needs to stop objectifying its men lol

    I'd vote for him.  I mean, we all talk about how much of a baller Rafaam is for stealing decks but in practice it's someone else doing this on a regular basis

    • Picked Medivh's pay2win cardback
    • Jammed in the obvious stuff with his name on it
    • Jammed in some ravens and crows
    • Jammed in some of his servants from Karazhan
    • Filled in the rest with spells he would cast based on his deck from the adventure and HotS abilities
    • Do I get bonus points for making my hero related to the cardback in addition to the cards?

    I like the the change allowing you to do these in casual.  Although I personally I would have liked these challenges to be played vs more difficult opponents, most peoples' casual opponents are likely much harder than your average rank 19 opponent anyway due to MMR

    I won't be doing the remaining 2 for the foreseeable future.  While I love the idea and naming of #186, I don't even know where to begin, especially regarding the dust count.  For #189a, I don't have an account with Jeklik and I'm not crafting a trashy card that doesn't even have meme potential

    posted a message on Poll: Hearthstone is more fun if you can't afford everything.

    I wouldn't necessarily call it more fun, but f2p certainly has its own charm.  There's the element of collection management strategy that you never experience if you're buying a lot of cards

    As for streamers opening packs ... well, that's their job.  They need to be able to show their audience a wide range of decks.  There's probably a lot of people out there who watch streamers because they can't afford the decks themselves.  It doesn't mean streamers don't play with the concept occasionally though.  There's plenty of them who do f2p challenges.  It used to be all the rage a few years ago

    DK sounds like an auto exclude in wild.  The beast pool is worse and on top of that, wild is faster.  How are you going to deal with cubelock or big priest?  The amount of control and value decks to counter are even fewer than in standard
