what do you mean by "becoming" unsavory, at least since the 80s being a gamer was practically a slur and while more recently there is less negativity towards the tag (because a lot more people play games) it's still not something i'll openly call myself or be proud of. there's still a fuck load of baggage if you call yourself "gamer" in todays culture.

i mean sure, but i imagine this deck is much more minion heavy than current priest decks with the requirement to hit specific mana costs (you'll want several of each mana cost) therefore it's much less likely for mutanas to hit exactly that card.

the puzzles were interesting and some of the other fights had cool mechanics that i enjoyed, i'll say though that the medivh fight seems way over tuned, had to restart it more than 6 times because he has such insane tempo turns with atiesh and your deck is mostly playing vanilla minions on curve.

deck often relies entirely on discovering several burn spells to finish with bru'kan, might as well just play a straight up burn deck in the first place, or basically any other shaman deck. there's very little reason to be playing this control shell over priest right now outside of enjoying the discover/rng generation aspect (which priest also does better)

not sure what op is smoking, warlock is in absolute awful spot atm i have been playing it pretty much since rotation (tryingt get 1000 wins portrait) and there's no unicorn warlock deck that people are missing, it's been fully explored by this point.
it folds to mage, hunter, demon hunter (any version), weapon rogue (yeah rare, but there are a few about still), token druid unless you have perfect removal draws early.
it's best matchups are warrior and priest (priest is basically free win), does mediocre vs paladin and shaman decks usually have enough reach/burn to finish you off.
only reason to play the deck is if you are a masochist or are looking to get x win portraits.

Autoconceding is something I think should never be implemented, that would really turn the game into rock/paper/scissors haha.
I think a better idea would be to have the option to ban one class when going into the queue, or maybe even a seperate game mode with bans enabled.
uhh no being able to ban a class would make priest quite op, they are only really being kept in check by warlock right now.
i think auto concede would be a fine quality of life addition and really don't see how you could exploit it in a bad way. there are just some matchups where it's not worth your time to play it out, so saving users a few clicks here and there for no real in game advantage seems fine to me.

it's very rock-paper-scissors right now, seeing a vast increase in priests to beat paladins and then you get more warlocks who are trying to prey on priests (that's pretty much all they are good for). you sometimes see rush warrior too, although they can go toe to toe with paladin i still think paladin generally has the strongest early plays and so usually dictates the flow of the game

sounds like op is quite naive or has some fluffy idea of what a community should be like. as far as game communities go and considering the popularity i'd say hearthstone is actually quite a bit nicer compared to a lot of other games. i've had a lot more positive interactions in and out of the game than in various mmos, shooters, and rts communities i was part of in the past.
by no means is it perfect, but claiming it is especially bad or toxic is completely off the mark and perhaps suggests you haven't touched other pvp games in a long time.

Wanna beat Control Warlock with Warrior? Easy, just play Rattlegore and smack him in the face with weapons. That will make him cry for sure, because he has no means to defend himself against it.
Funny you say that, a few times I played vs Warlock decks who ran Silas specifically to counter Rattlegore and presumably libram paladin. If Control Warrior does become popular Warlock decks have more than enough ways to tech to that kind of meta.
