    posted a message on Isn't the third expansion usually in December?

    They have stated that there will be a mini expansion in the middle of the cycle. Perhaps they are changing release dates to accommodate possible future mini expansions?

    Could also be that they are trying to push earlier expansions due to Covid. More people playing their game so it'd make sense to push more content for the higher demand.

    It's not though. Diligent Notetaker is a Shaman card, not a Rogue one

    posted a message on This buff could make HL Pally work

    This change makes a Highroll card even more random. The winrate between playing this card on 1 into upgraded Hero Power on 2 would be too absurd in comparison to the current version. At 1 mana, this would be all you Mulligan for, just like the buffed Libram 1-Drop in Libram Paladin. Except you're guaranteed the Hero Power the following turn whereas you're not guaranteed a Buff card in Libram Paladin.

    There are many other ways to make Highlander Paladin consistent and powerful, such as giving access to more control tools or even stronger Midrange tools. Making a good card even better isn't the way I'm afraid.

    They're all in you're encounter with him in the Hall of Explorers in the League of Explorers adventure. You could turn down music and record them yourself or find them somewhere on YouTube

    I remember when Caverns was the first card post Beta to receive two individual nerfs... and it was still played after both nerfs.

    posted a message on New Neutral Legendary Card Revealed - Magtheridon

    Cool card, but too situational. If your opponent has 5 minions, it's dormant forever. If your opponent bounces a warden to their hand, it fails. If you can't destroy the wardens, it blocks up your board.

    It's not the best idea to play with other minions because it clears ALL minions, meaning your opponent can purposely kill the wardens, clear the board, and single target down Magtheridon. Maeiv is incredible against it because the wardens don't come back.

    Its like a worse Darkness, except at least the Candles blocked non Duplicate cards from working.

    You mean a Priest minion is going to be problematic with a Druid minion?

    posted a message on Paladin's class identity

    It's hilarious to me that now Paladin has no class identity. A few years ago, Priest had nothing. Paladin healed better, Warlock had better combos, Rogue stole better, Mage had better spells and Paladin also had better buffs.

    Paladins are supposed to be holy knights who smite down evil. To do so, they bring "Equality" to all and "Consecrate" wrong-doers. They create an even playing field and fight fair.

    Paladins are also all about buffing allies and helping each other out, which is why Blessing of Kings, Might and Wisdom exist. They have a small sub theme of Holy Weapons and Blessed Allies which is where Truesilver Champion, Ashbringer and Paladin Murlocs come into play. Classes adopt additional themes over time, and Paladin just so happened to get Holy Murlocs.

    Mechanically, though the reason Paladin has secrets is because there's no clean way to have an effect trigger on your opponent's turn. While Avenge doesn't make sense as a secret, it is thematically sound since your minion(s) have witnessed an ally fall and work to avenge their ally. They each make sense when explained, but it's difficult to surmise when they share the "Secret" keyword.

    posted a message on Worst legendary you have ever crafted?

    Leeroy Jenkins is one of the most powerful cards ever printed! A 5 mana fireball attached to a minion you can buff is really good. Classes are purposely designed in specific ways, like how Warlock is supposed to have little burst damage (which is why Doomguard was moved to HoF). Leeroy breaks that pattern and gives classes access to burn damage they shouldn't have. He's a finisher that can fit in almost every Aggro deck or Midrange deck. For reference, he used to cost 4 mana, but was nerfed, and is still sooooo good. Don't sleep on Leeroy

    posted a message on Expedite Priest changes.

    I love Priest. It's been my main class since the beginning. Priests best meta was Raza Priest, and that has been the 1 and only time Priest has been overpowered and warranted an adjustment. Priest could rarely contend with dedicated Control decks such as Control Warrior, and was too slow to not be Combo deck food.

    Priest is especially designed to deal with Aggro and Midrange style decks. They have plentiful removal and AoE in order to combat board centric decks. It sounds to me like these are the kind of decks you are interested in if you feel this strongly against Priest. Apart from simply saying "Adapt", my best advice is to space your threats, as to play around AoE. Often times 3 minions is all you need to develop at a time. Play too many and Hysteria lines up very well. Run silence to counteract taunts. Don't play into Northshire Cleric or Wild Pyromancer.

    Priest doesn't have a massive later game threat like N'zoth or Dr. Boom. Mass Ressurection can be frustrating, which is why you try to pressure face and make it awkward to play. The key is to develop/extend when they extend. This'll make playing board clears more difficult.

    Hopefully these tips will make playing against Priest easier and less frustrating. But please, don't result to insults. There's just no need. At the end of the day, it's a game, and you shouldn't feel petty enough to insult others over this game.

    Have a lovely day :)
