Yeah, even against aggro. You sound like me when I was stuck at Rank 15. It happens all the time against Quest Druid, either have your Starfall/Oasis on 5 or 6, or you lose. If you're smart with resources, you will stabilize... but it doesn't sound like you know much about that.

You are an idiot if you think not playing it on turn 2 for tempo against aggro and instead passing the turn is the right play. I don't even know why this is controversial, I have tens of thousands of wins in this game and been playing since vanilla, I know how to play and what good plays are. Is this just a circle jerk against me or something? Damn...baffling, honestly.
*laughs in passing on 2 with 2 unused mana with Druid Quest*
The benefit of getting further ahead in quest is more important than NOT getting ahead in quest and using my Power of the Wild to make a 3/2. Passing and doing nothing is correct.

A 6 mana 6/6 that gets up to 11 mana worth of value, AND thins the deck by up to five.
On 5 with coin it's just straight-up oppressive.

-1 Divine Favor (One feels good, if always used for at least 3 cards)
+1 Mecharoo (^^)
+1 Loatheb (sealed many games shut with this)
High 60ish% wr from 15->5 so far after 50 games

Sound logic, faith in big numbers and faith in my ability as a player. If you're good and you're good with the deck, that 1 in 12 scenario that just lost you the game won't matter in a sea of 500+ games in a season with the deck. Also, understanding human nature. Generally people get way more upset at bad beats than excited by good outcomes.
Deck tracking also helps. I'll get triggered by a loss, then look over and see I'm still 47-21 with the deck. It helps to give you an "eh, well" feeling about bad beats.

The older cards aren't getting any better own their own. It's the interactions with annually power crept cards that make them so good.
It just seems that Blizzard is well aware that power creep is the issue, but continuously decides to scapegoat "dEsIgN sPaCe" and "cLaSs iDenTiTy" to justify halling cards that weren't OP or overplayed for years of being out.

Unpopular opinion, but I'm gonna say no. Edwin doesn't really see much play nowadays, and in this meta [both Odd and Tempo] Rogue prefers Hench-Clan Thug on 3 over Edwin. If you wait, by the time you play him for the payoff, your opponent usually has an answer for him.
DK Valeera is better, but leaving Standard in a few months. So... neither? I'd keep it for Rogue's next legendaries.

Warlock Epic Spell, 3 Mana
Draw cards equal to the number of Minions you control. Deal 3 Damage to your Hero for each Minion.

I have a friend that played in the first ten seasons but stopped around Naxx. If he were to come back today and play no one would know the difference either way.
I will say it's an achievement to get it though. Back then it was more of skill but now I'd say it's still about skill but more about patience/discipline. I got it with pre-nerf Bonemare era Tempo Rogue.

Yes it works fine. You just have to play a little more conservative to get you to the late game. Save any and all Mass Hysteria for Hunter Spellstones. Use your life as a resource more, don't be so jumpy with your boardclears; use only when absolutely necessary. I've been 31-19 without Zerek, 11-6 vs. Hunters.
