    Me neither. And one of mine says to play 2 battlegrounds, which I don't have access too.

    Oh, I also just queued up Zayle's Evil Cloak and it kicked me out of a game saying that the deck wasn't valid for this format. Great patch, Blizzard!

    A long time ago:
    Putting a (2) mana card into a Prince Keleseth deck and getting Prince Keleseth at the start hand. Wondering why his battlecry didnt' trigger.

    [... thinking...]

    [headbang]

     Hey, you could still play competitively! Didn't somebody deep into a major tournament a couple years back pick Keleseth off of their Stitched Tracker and immediately slam him down?

    It is. The aggressive free pack Twitch giveaways recently are a pretty telling sign that viewership is down and the general player base tends to follow those trend lines. Hearthstone survived Artifact because Valve botched it so badly, but between MTG:A, DOTA Underlords, and Riot's big plans, things are going to be very competitive in the near future.

    They're still a long way off from the point where it affects your average player's experience in terms of queue time/opponent recycling, but I don't think we're far off from the end of new content.

     agree with that .... im afraid that Legends of Runeterra will be the end for Hearthstone.
    everything depend on that how RIOT will present and develop this new TCG 
    i never played MTG but many other sayed that this new riot game have prty much the same gameplay and strategy 

    I watched Firebat play it a little bit today. I wasn't personally that interested, but it looks like it would be a tougher competitor than MTG:A, even without the name recognition. It's just sleeker and more streamlined (which makes it much more appealing to new players). They've taken MTG's phase system and defender blocking and paired it with Hearthstone's natural mana progression. The animations are flashy and attractive and you're not assaulted with a wall of text on every card.

    Time will tell if it has the strategy and depth to keep hardcore players invested and the right pacing/incremental progression & RNG for casual players, but I'd be worried if I were Blizzard.

    N'Zoth is my favorite card ever. Interested to see how it plays with the current crop of deathrattles.

    I love the discover mechanic, but it just gets tedious when it happens on every single turn. Glad to get this one out of the way on the first try.

    And since somebody mentioned Hunterace earlier, I'd urge everybody to check out the Hunterace vs. Kolento match that just went down. GM Europe, week 5, day 1. Hunterace on the Holy Wraith Paladin, Kolento playing Hunter. Amazing game with Kolento two off of lethal for several turns at the end, holding off on playing minions to avoid the Shirvallah rush heal. Really a clinic by both players.

    If you have any doubt about skill in Hearthstone, i would suggest to watch some games from Hunterace in GM! I am sure this guy would beat 9 out of 10 times every normal Rank5 Hearthstone player, even if he had an unfavorable matchup. 

    Also in comparison to other Cardgames Hearthstones skillsealing is quite okish. 

    In my opinion  most players  blame rng or bad luck for their losses, but meanwhile they don’t see their mistakes, and " it’s all just rng " , is the easy way out.

     Well said. Watching pro players during this meta has been particularly humbling for me. I anticipate so few of the moves that these guys actually make, even on what seem like pretty cut-and-dry turns. The decks that people are complaining about like combo Priest and battlecry Shaman just have a ton of complexity to really get the most out of them, and these guys pilot them to perfection.

    I love the change from a balance perspective, but admittedly this probably makes the game less fun from a casual perspective. Discover is a huge part of why I play, and class cards tend to be a bit more interesting on the average.

    I can live with it, though. I know "mana cheating" tends to draw the most ire among Hearthstone players, but I think there's also a fair amount of salt generated from having to deal with three or four copies of a powerful card in a game that intentionally limits you to just two in the deck-building process.

    Awesome. I've been playing control Shaman for two straight sets, so I may give this a try (even though it absolutely kill me to only have one Walking Fountain in my deck...)

    What are you generally going for with Zephrys the Great in this deck?

    posted a message on Elysiana should never give an other Elysiana

    I think it would be a reasonable change all around for discover cards, but there aren't a whole lot of situations where it's really that impactful to warrant changing the mechanics. I think back to quest warrior chaining Stonehill Defenders. Mage juicing up Mana Wyrm with multiple Primordial Glyphs. In my control Shaman deck I'm sometimes able to return multiple Haunting Visions the following turn with Krag'wa, the Frog. There was a Shadow Visions loop Priest deck back in the day, though that's a slightly different situation since it's coming from your deck.

    I'm not really in favor of writing an irregular rule for one card, and I'm just not sure a broader change to discover would make the game any better or more intuitive.

    posted a message on The League of Explorers: Revived! - Tavern Brawl #221

    That was actually fun. First two were challenging (first weapon from my opponent was a 5 durability so he was able to mop up my board for several turns). Brann went down in a hurry with a poisonous minion. Others weren't much trouble. Not sure it feels that replayable, but it was a good first time experience.

    posted a message on Is it fair to call it casino shaman?

    Again, the problem is the mana-cheating, not the RNG. It's not the fact that you can sometimes get Tirion and sometimes a 1/1. It's the fact that you can get a Tirion at all on Turn 3.

    Well said. There are certainly better and worse draws, but when you're looking at an average of about 5/7, several of which have really strong persistent/deathrattle effects, it's highly likely that it's gonna be a really strong play.

    I remember back in the Spiteful Summoner days when people would always friend me to vent about how lucky I was for rolling a Deathwing or Tyrantus, as if they weren't just gonna get steam-rolled anyways by a turn 6 4/4 + 8/8.
