    posted a message on Priest got exactly 0 playable card

    I have no idea why you're underrating C'Thun Priest so much.

    Obviously the vanilla C'Thun minions aren't as strong as other by themselves, but they still give the deck early drops to contest the board that do useful stuff later. The specific support the class got is absolutely fantastic, too. A 4 mana 3/6 is very hard to deal with, especially when you have hero power and PW: Shield. Combine that with the fact that it can make your C'Thun pretty damn big if it sticks around, which it often will, and it has super high value. Darkmender heals a 3rd of your starting HP after very little buffing AND has a massive body. Priest also has tons of heals to survive until late, as well as reliable draw options (Cleric and Acolyte synergy) to dig for C'Thun. You say Priest is bad at playing a midrange style with a finisher, but that has two problems: First, you're disregarding the possibility that the deck can stall long enough with heals, all the new taunts, and vanillas to survive to late game and control. Second, the reason Priest has never been good playing to a big finisher is because the class has never HAD one. C'thun is pretty easy to get big enough to either take out a good chunk of your opponent's board, or straight kill them. And no, the fact that they lost on stream with C'Thun priest is not relevant. It was one game, and there's exactly zero possibility they were playing with an optimized build.

    Darkshire Alchemist is WAY better than Darkscale Healer. Alchemist can be a stronger Healbot on an empty board, or keep a big minion alive if you have one. Healer does jack shit on an empty board, and is only useful in the unlikely situation you have tons of damaged minions and 5 mana to use.

    I agree that Shaping is pretty good and Shifting Shade is OK. SW: Horror is probably bad, but has a bit more potential than you give it credit for.

    Anyway, that's just my two cents (maybe even three, this post is longer than I expected). I could be totally wrong, but I think a lot of people are underestimating the stuff we got here.

    posted a message on Need some help deciding on my 3rd deck to bring to a local tournament.

    I've posted something like this in three different places, and every single reply has been "Midrange Druid"

    I've been thinking I should probably learn the deck anyway, so I guess I'm going with that. Thanks guys!

    posted a message on Need some help deciding on my 3rd deck to bring to a local tournament.

    Heya!

    I'm gonna try out a local tournament for the first time, and I've got two decks I know I'm gonna run, but I can't figure out a third. I'm currently bringing Control Priest and Patron Warrior. I was thinking something aggro might be good as the last deck? Here's what I was considering:

    • Egg Druid
    • Face Hunter
    • Renolock
    • Tempo Mage (although, I don't own Arcane Blast)
    • Something else?

    I'm open to pretty much any suggestions, keeping in mind that due to not owning stuff, I can't play Freeze Mage or any viable Paladin deck, really. Thanks in advance for your help! =D

    Probably Syvanas. Rag is just a giant beater, and Handlock has plenty of those already.

    Alex is suuuuuper good. If you don't have a non-gold version, keep her 100%.

    posted a message on So, who's ready for a Flamewaker nerf?

    Judging by the previous nerfs Blizz has done, Flamewaker will not be getting hit anytime soon. The only things they've nerfed are cards that either facilitate decks that utterly dominate opponents without much of a chance to fight back (Gadgetzan Auctioneer, Leeroy Jenkins, Unleash the Hounds), or that are run in literally every single deck (Tinkmaster Overspark, other random stuff in beta). Flamewaker doesn't fit in the 2nd category (it's not run in all Mage decks), or the 1st (Tempo Mage is strong, but not so insanely strong that nothing can compete against it, nor can it nuke you for 20 damage from hand). Therefore, judging by Blizz's policy towards nerfing, Waker is totally safe, unless the next set breaks it really hard.

    posted a message on Despite all the complaints, I only have 1 problem with Ragnaros in Brawl

    ...However, this problem is easy to solve, and the best part is, it could make the Majordomo version of Rag much more viable too! Ragnaros just needs a fix to a MASSIVE bug that makes him practically unplayable: When you use his hero power, he doesn't yell "DIE, INSECT!". This is obviously a huge weakness in his design, and must be repaired to balance this first week of Tavern Brawl.

    (seriously though, the brawl is pretty balanced. the only real issue with Nef, IMO, is Razorgore. that thing's ridiculous)

    Pyroblast is the only one that comes to mind, really, although it isn't THAT legendary.

    I love Rag!

    ...Literally the entire reason is that I love spamming DIE, INSECT. But still!

    Nef is maybe a bit better, but it's pretty even IMO. Plus, I think Rag is just more fun, DIE, INSECT
