    Quote from Xynot >>

    Look at standard, look at wild, do you really think Blizzard is even trying to achieve balance?   If you aren't into big swingy power game plays, it's time to pack up your tent and go elsewhere.

     Well, that one is particularly swingy, and comes very early. Not to mention, it requires very little setup and has very limited counterplay.
    Not to mention the power of the deck puts a huge limitation on which other decks are playable in the format.

    SlydE,

    Have you considered updating the list, because imho some of the older legendaries have lost popularity post patch. I'm kinda tired to name anything, but I think many cards fall in this category (tomorrow I will try to give proper examples and to back up my words with data). E.g.

    -Alexstrasza - that she is strong and beloved by control decks, I won't disagree about that. But currently I only see her in control mage, which is considered to be a tier 3 deck (see this list here).

    inb4 how is "Hadronox - Playable in Spiteful Summoner"? I have only seen him in Taunt dudu.

    Thanks! I think Alexstrasza will stay in tier 2 forever, as she has such a powerful effect that will go in and out of the meta. I will update the card text for Hadronox.
    If you click at the "Changelog" spoilers in the OP, you will see that I have several of updates to new and old cards in both formats. Note that text updates are not listed (a pain to clean up, any feedback appreciated!) only tier movements.

    Warlock doesn't even need Naga Sea Witch, and almost equally powerful decks would take it's place. The class can spam a board full of giants with Glinda Crowskin anyway, and Voidcaller is as stupid as ever.

    Also, the point that "all classes can't deal with a flood of giants" argument is good, but if you actually play the deck, and just not mindlessly spam giants into a full-clear AOE, EVERY deck struggles.

    Defile and Kobold Librarian are actually extremely important cards for flood defence and consistency, and nerfs would hurt a lot...

    Whats a better craft? Warrior quest or legendary hunter weapon? Have been wanting to play with both archetypes for a while but only have enough dust for one

    I would say Fire Plume's Heart is the safer craft, as quest warrior, both normal and odd, has established itself as a viable archetype. Spell hunter is doing decently as well, but noone knows how viable it is after Barnes rotated. You can also try that deck without the weapon...

    You can play most decks without him, just axe the worst 1s and 3s and add whichever good 2-drops you have access to, defensive or offensive.

    Quote from Nicholasjh >>

    Don't listen to them. Board clear can be quite good in aggressive decks, You may have to hold cards, plan the clear etc, skills that many players don't have. If it's working for you and you actually beat cubelock... more power to you. 

     

    The problem with slow AOE in any tempo deck is that if you have to use it, you lost anyway, and the mage spells are not strong enough. 1x Polymorph is ok as a tech card, but Primordial Glyph is far too strong to pass up on in a deck with any spell synergy. Craft those and Archmage Antonidas and you are good to go!
    Another direction would be aggro in Wild, just jam in more burn with Forgotten Torch and Mad Scientist, and then more freeze/burn or the secret synergy minions. Anthon, Glyphs and Pyro are not needed.

    Quote from Velerios >>

    Dr. Boom is too slow: not used in wild at all, and even with the less cards, he's not really a thread anymore, when you have a 6 mana minion that summons a 12/12

    But why is nobody refering to Reno Jackson? Would be insane against all the aggro-paladins out there.

    Believe it or not, he has had an upswing lately in Wild, especially in odd-decks. That 12-12 is frustratingly often a 7-5, and dr. Boom is a very good follow-up in Spiteful decks.  He would be all over standard for sure!

    Quote from scorpyon >>

    Queen Sylvanas would be downright terrifying. Quest Priest would be insane value with her. And along with Gorgon Zola.... Shuddder...

    Oooh. Shudderwock and C’thun would be funny tho....

    Shudderwock/C'thun is not that amazing. Yes, you get the buffs and twin but the damage from the battlecry of C'thun himself will trigger for the last Shudderwock played, usually 6 damage. Shudder jades is much better.
    Dr. Boom would be obvious for odd decks.

    Quote from Kramnidorach >>

    I had been thinking the same lately  : an intermediate wild format with a bunch of rotating constraints would guarantee more diversity and put emphasize a bit more on deck building skills rather than just trying to play perfectly net decked lists.

     Why would you think that when Tavern brawls and new expansions are netdecked within hours?

    Quote from SentralKont >>

    Despite what anyone believes, cards are hall of famed simply to keep the meta diverse and healthy. Rag for example was famed because he went, back then, into every deck that wasn't full smorc or full control 

    If a card sees over-representation, or causes issues for the community, it's hall of famed.
    That's why the coldlight faming was earned.

    Ragnaros the Firelord was probably the most sensible HOFing, and The Lich King has seen a lot more play than he would otherwise.
    I don't think having to chose between Cobalt Scalebane and Azure Drake would hurt, and the other cards would also add more then they would detract imo. The real format defining cards for Wild are others, especially Mal'Ganis, Mad Scientist,Naga Sea Witch and Muster for Battle.

    Quote from dragonsdemesne >>

    They split Wild and Standard too early.  Standard simply doesn't have enough sets in it for an interesting and diverse meta to develop.  Even Wild doesn't have that many different decks yet.  It COULD, if people actually played them, but they don't.  Standard doesn't even have enough possible decks available to be interesting, and that's if people actually played them all.

    I agree, and the powerlevel of MSG, KFT and KC made the split pointless, as several pure Standard decks were able to reach legend in Wild.

    Quote from Kovachut >>

    Hey, so I have some spared dust in my collection (2730) and I was wondering how competitive Kingsbane Rogue is in Wild. Normally I'm a Standard player, as I have always preferred the fresh experience of rotating sets in that format over the heavy odor of powerful interactions, which wild is flooded with. But since WW didn't brought that much excitement as I thought it would, I'm in the mood for some wild stuff. Dunno why, but no other competitive (wild) deck feels that interesting to me in comparisson to the aforementioned one. As you probably guessed, I came here to ask about your opinion just because I lack some of the key cards. Those would be:

    - Kingsbane itself;

    - Preparation  x2

    - Doomerang x2

    My collection isn't updated yet, but I can do that in a sec.

    Anyway thx for your time. <3

    I just checked the numbers, and unfortunately Kingsbane rogue is not doing well at higher ranks in Wild, and is demoted to tier 3 in Wild section of the tier list.
    All Standard decks have wild equivalents (maybe except Even paladin) and then there is Kun/Aviana OTK druid, Jade druid, Giantlock, Renolock, Secret mage, Aggro/burn mage, Quest mage, Reno mage, big priest, funky homebrews (Mech paladin, Egg hunter...) Are you sure nothing appeals to you?

    posted a message on Question: Preventing Battlecries from triggering?

     

    Quote from Echtvad >>

    It would be cool if there was more tech choices for preventing battlecries. I'm thinking a secret may be a possibility. It could be a mage secret that prevented the battlecry from activating and then activated it on your side instead. Example Healbot would heal you for 8 while if you prevented Fire elemental the target would be random.

    Welcome to the Pit Lord meta... and also those minions affecting themselves could be messy.
    Just blocking the battlecry from happening would be nice. Is there even a single deck out there without a single battlecry these days?
