    posted a message on Espionage fans, you think this will work?

    It's interesting.

    I think Cutthroat Buccaneer's combo requirement is kinda unbearable, imo. A second Naga Corsair and a Goblin Auto-Barber are much better and they do the same thing.

    Without testing, I feel the Ship's Cannon does not have enough Pirate support in this deck to be a consistent drop.

    On the other hand, you may need some extra thief card, for when you can't find an espionage or are not it the position to play it. Maybe Blink Fox or some other thief card with a body (for some Tempo).

    But Raiding Party for Spectral Cutlass is definitely an interesting idea. Especially with Swashburglar.

    Try to play a game with Wild Even Shaman. 

    Avoid using the hero power (to simulate the failure in mulligan).

    Let me know how playable it is...

     

     I think you missed the part where I said that Genn/Baku will (just like the quests) automatically appear in your starting hand... You will not need to search for it in the mulligan...

     Oh my bad. Indeed I missed that!

    In that case, It may be ok.

    Even tho it's not really an elegant nerf, and I am not even sure of the real impact... But probably ok.

    posted a message on OTK Decks

    If one plays a slow Control deck that has no solid wincondition within the first 10-15 turns, and gets smashed by an OTK after that, well they deserve to lose.

    The same way an Aggro deck deserves to lose if it fails to achieve victory within the first 7-8 turns.

    As long as OTK decks are not as efficient and consistent as Control at reacting against faster decks, I don't really see the problem (ie, it was a real issue with Aviana/Kun Druid before the nerfs).

    Are current OTK Paladin/Priest and Mecha'thun that efficient against the best Aggro/Midrange decks?

    It's a killer nerf, not a solution.

    A killer nerf is a solution, isn't it? There was never a need for even/odd decks. The game would not be incomplete without them. Removing this thing from the game would be good for play and design. 

    I'd be fine with a less drastic nerf, but I certainly wouldn't complain or miss them if they got hit hard. Kingsbane was hit with a killer nerf. Quest Rogue should have been hit with a killer nerf the first time. It's okay to hit things with killer nerfs.

     

     If you compare Genn/Baku with the original Quest Rogue, then it's ok to hit half the meta with killer nerfs, including the entire Hunter and Priest classes, together with OTK Paladin, Mecha'thun and other stuff.

    Which is obviously unnecessary.

    If Genn/Baku were problematic per se, we would have Odd/Even Priest or Odd/Even Hunter or Odd/Even Druid on top tier as well. Why not, also Odd Warlock and Shaman. That does not happen, despite some direct support.

    That proves that synergy with Hero Powers is the key point, and what makes the difference.

    posted a message on Wild dragon priest seems in a good place.

    No info here beyond the few matches I played in Wild ladder this month, but it sounds to me like some novelty imported or renewed from the current success in Standard. 

    I have met some here and there in the past, and if they can curve out well, it's a powerful and versatile deck, but I think it's fallen off-meta, while staying viable for some aficionados. Tbh, I can't see why it should turn competitive all of a sudden against class-competitors like Reno Priest or Big Cancerpriest in the meta.

    But who knows, Wild meta is so crystallized that a real meta shakeup may need very long time to develop? What ranks are you playing at?

    posted a message on Ramp druid 10 mana hero card

    It becomes an obnoxious card as soon as it turns playable in the meta. Star Aligner, but worse.

    That would make the curve of Odd/Even decks unbearably sub-optimal.

    It's a killer nerf, not a solution.

    The solution is to stop printing cards that have OP/cheesy synergy with hero powers.

    posted a message on Is paladin DK Hero power not RNG?

    Fast insight: on their 2nd knight (1 in hand), they have a 3/4= 75% to get one that is different from the 1st one. It's very high.

    If the above succeeds, chance is 2/4= 50% on the 3rd knight (2 in hand), which is again quite high.

    posted a message on IMPORTANT: If Your Account Has Been Renamed

    Ah so emails that is!

    Well, i may be paranoid, but i do not use my "official" email account for communities on the web. Just a secondary account, that obviously i never check.

    I am not blaming anyone, as losing a post counter is no big issue at all, but expecting people to periodically read their registration email sounds a bit of an oversimplification to me.

    By the same logic for which no big issue derived from the failed opt-in here (it is a community with no big implications on its users), the users shouldn't really be expected to read their emails.

    The twitch account merging was much more directly warned.

    Again, not blaming anybody, just a consideration and a possible insight on how we got to this point.

    I didn't even realize the thing, and about the data transfer. I am not even sure i actually got any warnings? But i can't deny i might have ignored them. But it's wieird, because i didn't ignore the twitch merge before.

    But oh well, the posts can be remade. I just have to be more productive in the Salty Thread i guess. :p

    Quote from FreeMorgl >>

    By the way, this is rank 11 I am facing Subject 9 Hunter, which according to Tempostorm is the number 1 deck in the game.  How am I ever supposed to get wins this way with a non-optimized deck and terrible RNG?

     Terrible RNG? Unoptimized deck just because you miss a perfectly replaceable legendary card?!?

    You must be either trolling or too much in a snowflake mood.

    You have been given plenty of serious advice. Have at least the decency to read and try to apply them.

    If you just want to complain, there's the Salty Thread for that.

    Resource management based on the knowledge of what your opponent might be doing to counter your board.

    Ofc you can't foresee everything, but you can play around the main threats or counterplays in the meta.

    Sometimes you can, sometimes you can't (because of poor card draw), but trying it systematically and as hard as you can, is what makes the difference.
