Forgot Reno Jackson in a Reno Jackson deck lol
literally this, happened to me once and I even won the game (to be fair it was a control vs control match)
if you play shit like darkest hour and big priest you genuinely need to get your head checked, you probably have a brain tumor that's turning you into an absolute fucking degenerate
why do players always greet only when they have a good hand or if they're playing cancer? I insta squelch those because I already suppose why they're emoting, and I'm right 99% of the time
wow so you play quest mage, wank off for 7 turns while I can do nothing against stupid fucking random spells and you emote "well played" at the end of the game. no it was not well played, it was not a fun game, you suck, your life sucks and nobody will mourn you when you end up 6 feet under
Ya but to ruin a list like Renolock with techs (what did you tech btw beside Eater of Secrets ?) just for this match up is as you said feels weird and you lose against the other control which are the other common part.
What I am trying to establish is do you counter the deck just by adding certain tech cards to existing decks? Or is there a real hard counter, because as many have stated Armor Warrior fell flat on its face with me.
So, this is my impression:
Since the new expansion came out, I started playing secret mage (I didn't know it would be so overpopulated). This deck is broken. Period.
If you draw well enough, not even your tech cards will help your opponent (some days ago I beat a shaman with 2 Eater of Secrets). That's the same as ruining your deck with things like Gravelsnogut Knight or Hungry Ettin against big priest... it's pointless; you will lose one or two precious slots in your deck that will screw your gameplan and won't help you most of the times against these decks..
I still can't find another deck to counter it and perform well against other decks in the current meta.
Maybe Reno decks can find their way. You need lots of healing. But then again, they lose badly to combo decks, which are all around in wild...
So, if anybody has a good answer, it will be welcome (btw, I stopped playing this deck since I hate mirror matches)
but they really don't lose against combo decks, almost all reno decks run brann, zola and dirty rat, how do you lose if you draw that? lol
Well Emperor Thaurissan while a bunch of low mana cards are in hand allows you to pull off huge bursts with Spawn of Shadows (you obviously need to play Raza the Chained and Shadowreaper Anduin first lol). Seance is for survival but you can use it on Thaurissan so you can get a double discount (a bunch of 0 mana cards with Spawn can kill pretty much anything as long as your HP is higher than theirs unless you want to draw).
Other than this basic game plan there really aren't any combos, you can get a Thaurissan tick on Flash Heal, Mind Blast, Prophet Velen and Auchenai Phantasm for 20 dmg but that's about it, this build is mostly for Aggro decks.
If you want combos, I suggest you take out 2 cards that you don't need and put in Mirage Caller/Vivid Nightmare and Regenerate. Phantasm, Mirage and Velen allow you to pull off 32 dmg with Flash Heal and Regenerate which means you don't have to search for Raza and Anduin.
This is not my list, I found it on Hearthstone-decks.net and the guy who built it got to top 100 with it, so apparently it's pretty solid but sadly I don't think that player streams, I think he's just a top Asian player.
I only posted it after I got to Legend with it, like with most of the decks I post here just to show people it's possible, since the Legend meta is usually much different and is easier to climb with certain decks, I got to top 100 with Reno Hunter yet I couldn't move past rank 2 with it, you get my point.
Anyway you have some of my replays that I posted in a comment below if you're interested in game plans, mulligans etc.
You mean you want 30 mins for each match? no thanks.
I would prefer 30mins over 2 mins tbh...
How much fun do you have looking at ropes and loading screens? because I tend to see more of that than actual game play.
It gets so fucking boring reading the priest players responses in these threads - you know what they are gonig to say before you even read them - play a counter - shaman with devovles/hexes - mage with polys - mage with exxodia - aggro....
You wankers don't read. Or willfully ignore what is stated maybe 20 fricking times by different people in this thread
Gameplay matters in videogames. Big Preist directly punishes you for removing, trading, or even playing minions of your own - THE fundamental mechanic hearthstone revovles around. It could be Big Priest was a tier 4 deck, rather than a high tier 2, or even tier 1 deck IT WOULD NOT MATTER - the deck ruins the game with the way it plays.
Stop falling back on the idea that your deck can be beaten...we don't care. It really doesn't matter. Punishing players for just playing and trading minions in hearthstone is not ok. What matters is the way this archetype has abused poorly dev'd mechanics in the game to esseintally break it, and turn it into a high-roll cow cow-clicker for both players invovlved in any Big Priest matchup, at any level on the ladder. A win against a big priest feels as shitty as a loss.
Just two questions:
1) In which region (US, EU...) do you play? Compare this to the region of the deck creator.
2) What is your actual rank? There might be serveral differences in your opponent decks between your actual rank and the rank "legend".
5 Big Priests today. Beat 4 of them, but they still make me hate the game, please nerf this bullshit luck-fest deck
If you dont kill them by turn 6 you are more or less fucked. And the ladder is full of them. So for me it kills the joy to play in Wild as I'm not too keen on playing aggro decks. I usually concede when I see Barnes or a Shadow Essence, but sometimes the matchmaking will put me against 4 or 5 in a row, which basically removes any will to play. For sure it removed my will to preorder.
All big priest players deserve to die in real life.
I swaer I get like 80% winrate until rank 5 , then I get countered every time I get to rank 4. This grind is ridiculous and it feels fucking unfair. Like suddenly I don't see my key cards after a winstreak. Then when back at 5 oh! Here they are. Must be just biased due to tilt but fuuuuuuuuck.
