    posted a message on This expansion is defintely one of the worst

    The only reason you'd think that is if you were new to the game. You can't tell me this set is worse than The Grand Tournament or Goblins vs Gnomes. Two expansions which were bad for different reasons one was boring as all hell and barely added any new cards to the meta and the other which pushed the power level of the game into overdrive compared to anything that came before.

    We just don't see cards this set which will create meta warping on the level of older sets, overall it's a fairly balanced set in terms of power and deck building opportunities.

    Feels like Mage might be left in the dark again. But then both Legends Generate/Cast Spells that might give us options. (Provided there's unrevealed Spells to survive. ) 

    I just want one or two reliable Mage class Tools for gaining extra Life/Armour. I guess life steal isn't really inkeeping with Mage's style, but with Zilliax gone, Mage is going to be even more vulnerable.

    Not asking for another Ice Block tier card, but just some means of extra 'Ice' Armour outside of the Secret. 

     Yeah definitely a problem with Mage atm. Due to their AoE being quite expensive and no good defensive options there's very little reason to play it over Warrior or Priest. I fear with Demon Hunter being more popular it will be even worse because of all the high tempo plays they can make with the Aggro version or in the case of slower Demon Hunter decks they just offer better swing turns and have better removal.

    While it's annoying to face up against Aggro Hunter or Pirate Warrior those decks are fairly beatable by a tuned control deck (Warrior, Priest and Shaman are the best).

    The worst thing atm is Necrium Apothecary because you need an immediate answer to it or you are pretty doomed. It reminds me of Barnes in the old Resurrect Priest, but it's even more frustrating to deal with because the buffed minions have charge. Those polarizing cards are okay, but not when they're at 4 mana.

    "Random" Dragons. This was literally back to back games.

    Side Note: THIS is why I frequent the Salty Thread. Stuff like this isn't "random" for me. It's regular. When I play Dragonqueen, I get Faerie Dragons, Azure Explorers, Bronze Explorers, Bronze Heralds, and Scion of Ruin on a non-Galakrond class.

     The worst one for me was Mage who went Dragonqueen Alexstrasza into Alexstrasza my face, oh and they also got a 0 mana Kalecgos Which allowed them to use Conjurer's Calling twice on their 9 drop to create 2 King Krush.  I had to walk away from the computer after that one, it was such a disgusting way to lose.

    posted a message on How would be your life without Hearthstone???

    If there were other games as entertaining as HS I would be playing them. That's not to say I only play Hearthstone but it's one of the few games I can dip back into when I'm bored of something else and still have some fun with. 

    Not sure what I would play if it never existed though, I suppose Eternal/MTG Arena/Elder Scrolls or something. The great thing about card games like these is you can get so many hours of entertainment out of them. There are a few others which have this kind of quality like Path of Exile or Warframe but they aren't really something that grabs me as much as games where you can deck build from a large pool of cards.

    posted a message on Which deck stomps deathrattle rogue?

    Put double Spellbreaker in my Warrior deck just for this deck silenced both Anubisath and Apothecary. Still lost because they had 2nd Apothecary which they procced with weapon and Colossus of the Moon from Pharoah Cat. 

    I think Shaman is probably the best to beat them if you wanted to go the control route. Hex and Earthshock are much better cards in general than Spellbreaker plus they still get insane swing turns even in a control shell. 

    I'm mostly playing Warrior to get 1000 win portrait and try and beat all the Hunters (I do seem to be facing a lot of them which is nice).

    Yeah I'm not sure what it requires for you to get weapon removal. I was facing Paladin with 5/2 Ashbringer and it still didn't offer me Harrsion or Ooze (I had mana to play either).

    posted a message on Warrior Has FAR Too Much Removal

    Warrior removal is actually a little worse now we have lost Blood Razor which really did help stabilize against opponents without having to waste board clears. They did get Omega Devastator for single targets in the late game, but big minions that late haven't really been a problem for Warrior. Also without Blood Razor it is much more difficult to get use of Execute

    posted a message on Mage's lack of support in Survivability! Is it bad?

    It's very bad if you enjoy playing Control Mage like the old Big Mage style. It's good if you like the new direction the set has put Mage in with summoning large minions and more focus on spell damage. So, which category do you fall into?

    posted a message on What´s up with the Hearthstone community?

    It's fine really, everyone has their favourite classes and types of decks if the expansion and rotation weakens their class too much then of course they are going to feel annoyed. This is literally the most suitable place for people to post their criticism, and while it may sometimes be exaggurated or overblown it will often have some level of truth to how the deck is in game.

    I don't understand why people like the OP are even bothered about other people getting frustrated with certain aspects if the game. If you think the game is fine and people shouldn't complain then just play it and appreciate that you quite lucky to have such a mindset.

    Pure Control is very strong aswell and a very good counter for Boomb warrior. I dont agree that you think all warrior are Boom.Boom Warrior is like 70% Control 20% and 10% are Dragon warrior, Big Warrior and Mechathun warrior.

     There are only 2 good control classes right now against Bomb Warrior - thats Control Warrior and Shudderwock Shaman, all other options lack healing or have enough strong removals - you could argue for Paladin in 3rd but it's still worse than the other 2 in most respects.

    posted a message on What deck counters Shudder Shaman

    Rogue's can outvalue them honestly and a Tempo version can beat Shaman too unless they draw perfect removal (unlikely). Hunter is probably the hardest matchup for me when I'm playing Shaman - Beast Hunter especially, they just have too much pressure each turn even when I clear the board. Inner Fire Priest is also very troublesome, they just keep spamming giant minions and you just don't have enough hard removal to deal with them. Those are the hardest matchups, most others you shouldn't really lose if you play well.

    posted a message on All of The Boomsday Project Puzzles Cleared - Earn Your Card Back Easy!

    Glad for this guide. I am not good at puzzles and quite a lot of these use cards that are never played or have really weird board states (intentionally of course).

    It just shows how complicated HS can be if convoluted scenarios occur, like imagine if someone pulled off one of the later puzzles in a tournament game, that would be so impressive compared to how games usually play out.

    I still much prefer dungeon runs personally though, but it's also good they aren't afraid to experiment with a new game mode.

    Quote from CypherBenkes >>

    You have to keep in mind that one of, if not THE best Warrior player is calling it a staple in Control Warrior. It's not confirmation bias when you realize that the best Warrior player we have is calling it a staple. If your reading comprehension is as good as your sass, you'll find yourself a seat and sit down.

     He said "I think" and "should be a 1 of" implying he still needs to do more testing with it in Control Warrior. Like I said a few times, it fits much better into Odd Warrior than other archetypes since they have a worse card pool to draw from and can utilize weapons better.

    also don't be mad now. When GvG came out I found Dr.Boom SEVEN TIMES. Now it's just a matter of time and you get all you want.

     That's awful dude, so glad they fixed it so you don't get duplicates. Worst I had was 6 Soggoth the Slitherer in Whispers of the Old Gods.
