    posted a message on How do people come up with "good" decks

    I've been playing since beta and also don't consider myself smart enough to make decks.  Playing the game and making decks are different skills.  Like me, you might be better at executing a plan than making a plan.

    As far as defensive cards go, this one belongs in the top tier of linebackers like Sludge Belcher and Khartut Defender.  Ray Lewis would be proud.

    I enjoy it.  I typically try to win with low tier decks most of the time though.  My advise is to try another game that you might enjoy more if you aren't feeling it right now.  Don't worry about whatever progress you might have, just do what you like.

    I certainly don't think it's bad.  This shouldn't be view as a card where you expect to have the eggs hatch.  It should be looked at as a card where you opponent needs access to two individual sources of damage to kill of the eggs.  This typically would be two already on-board minions  which won't be able to make their typical trades during your opponent's turn (if said available minions have higher than 3 damage it could save you or your minions considerable health) or by spell.  That effect makes things more awkward for the opponent than I think we are giving credit.  In good competitive games, we shouldn't expect the eggs to hatch, but if they do hatch it has a high potential upside.

    Not a bad tech card to counter particularly fast metas.  We haven't seen a lot of control decks lately, this might help create a bit more variety.

    Good design.  Effect similar to hunter's mark...  Combo's with Unleash the Hounds...  Also synergizes with the hunter's new ability to use it's hero power to target minions.

    Seems ok but I don't think it would be worth adding to a Galakrond deck.  Kappa.

    It will seem broken until you play it as a two mana card draw one card spell enough times.  The odds of drawing this card early plus a dragon early aren't high enough for it to be broken.  That being said, a good card.  

     Via Mulligan, easy. Dragon Synergy has been around since Blackrock and fulfilling the condition was never a problem. There is a 1-cost dragon for priest and a 2-drop for Warrior with the condition and and in the Blackrock meta they were good cards. 

     

    This boils down to the content of the deck using the card.  Sure, it was easy to fulfill the condition when you had a high number of dragons in your deck and the dragon deck itself is good.  You are saying the deck will be good and contain a lot of dragons and I'm saying it won't be good enough to make it OP.  Dragonmaw Scorcher and Crowd Roaster aren't as good as Azure Drake.  Though Emerald Explorer is definitely going in the deck. Realistically neither of us know.  The answer is dependent on other conditions not yet revealed.

    Or you can judge their practices without the use of racial slurs.  15 yard penalty, replay first down.

    I just ignore what they're saying and start talking to them about stuff that has nothing to do with Hearthstone.

    posted a message on Rank Floors Make Winning Games Impossible
    Quote from MoonUnit >>

    The later it goes into the season the more weak players will filter down to the better ranks, because the stronger players mostly hit legend as the season goes on. Therefore no, it is not true that you can no longer play weaker players at a rank floor, they will find themselves there when everyone else moves to the next rank floor.

     This an accurate statement.  There's another factor at play though which is less straightforward.  Some of the less skilled players who cannot win at the rank floors stop playing which makes the overall player pool stronger.  When given the ability to rank down, these players are less likely to "give up" as they eventually find winnable matchups.  Although yes as the month progresses the lesser players are eventually able to move forward if they are playing. 

    Personally I prefer the flexibility of being able to rank down over rank floors.  Though I'm not bothered by ranking down since I know I'll be able to rank up fairly easily later once the better players have ranked up.

    posted a message on It's Pretty Much All Just Quest Shaman and Combo Priest...

    Personally, I'm glad that there are so many players playing quest shaman because the deck just isn't that good.  Just look up the stats for that deck.  Sure once you complete the quest you start generating a ton a value due to your cheap battle cry minions generating two lackeys and then those lackey's triggering their own battle cries twice.  The deck is considered fun because once you complete the quest, your tempo ramps up to 100 and you can catch up pretty quick.  What many players don't recognize however is that quest is completed late too often and ends up losing much more frequently than other top tier decks.  Let's look at the matchups

    Quest Shaman vs Combo Priest - 40% chance to win.  Quest shaman vs highlander hunter 49% chance to win.  Quest shaman vs quest druid 46% chance to win.  Quest shaman vs control warrior 49% chance to win.  

    It's not a great deck and a lot of people play it.  Embrace this fact.  Combo priest is the 2nd most popular deck only because it wrecks quest shaman.  Only at legend and rank 1 do the number of combo priest players outnumber the number of quest shaman players.  For everyone else - you know what to do now.  

    I can't support your request due to the fact that the meta has not self regulated correctly to allow the best decks to rise to the top yet.  Once that happens, then maybe make some changes.

    posted a message on [80% WR] Quest Shaman Rank 1 in one day! (Tested over 30+ games)

    Mind Control Tech has always been a cyclical meta card.  When opponents aren't expecting it, it's great.  Once it's been established in the meta, they know to play around it.  I question the card being in this deck at this point.  Yes, the battle cry can trigger twice but when opponents know that it appears in this particular deck only  it often doesn't trigger at all.  If one were to remove the card from the deck, opponents still won't spread their boards as wide as they optimally could in anticipation of the card being played.  So this card retains a phantom effect even when not in the deck.  Thoughts?
