OP , i stopped reading at the moment you said 'no one likes to be forced to play certain decks' , wanna counter the meta? play a deck that has good match ups with the meta , don't wanna do that? at least tech against it , you cant expect every deck to win against every other deck

a muslim person over here , can confirm that i think the jaina change is pretty bullshit (who the fuck thought having a slight reveal of breasts is offensive anyways?) modesty is nice but people are allowed to wear whatever the fuck they want most of the time (as long as it's not EXTREMLY revealing) it's really bullshit to see such change from blizzard , and even more bs to see people supporting it , just wnated to throw my opinion out there

ungoro was the best expansion , no it was the best period in my gaming life ever , the game was so amazing back there and thanks to it i discovered the love of my life called Elemental shaman , been playing the deck since ungoro and trying to make it work , before ungoro i had 50 shaman wins , now i have 1200 wins , not to mention the meta was extremly fun and i also played midrange paladin back there that was very very fun to play , easily the best expansion & meta in the game

wow , didn't know people are that salty at aggro decks calling them braindead , trust me an aggro vs control match up requires no skill from both sides it's as braindead as it gets , the control vs control or the aggro vs aggro however is the true match up that requires skill , and yet people shitting all over aggro , of course odd paladin is gonna shit all over ur turn 90 combo deck , he'll try to kill you before you finish ur combo , if it wasn't for him the meta would be ruled by kingsbane rogue and shudderwock shaman seeing this massive ego from control decks AND aggro decks dissapoint me , aggro vs control match up is braindead get over it please

something existing dosen't mean you can't complain , people have the right to complain about a shitty brawl or shitty standard blizzard giving us a free pack dosen't mean they can't put any creativity into the brawls and keep spamming boring shit.

My memories of JTU are still somewhat plagued by every other game starting with "I'M IN CHARGE NOW!"...
I remember how some of the first revealed cards were Tar Creeper, Golakka Crawler and Gluttonous Ooze. People thought it would be the end of Pirate Warrior, but it was only good enough to fight them. And while I was kind of happy that there were at least some tools to beat Pirates with, I was actually somewhat frustrated by the fact that almost every single deck was required to include two Crawlers by default.
Then again, it was so damn satisfying to beat Pirate Warrior with Taunt Warrior. There was a relatively short time where Quest Warrior was really good, and I was pretty happy about getting Fire Plume's Heart in my opening.
Regardless, the reveal was one of the most exciting ones for me. Nowadays, I am not too excited about expansions anymore, but back then, I was really happy about Elementals, a tribe I wanted to see coming to the game for a while already. Playing with Elementals was not too hot in the end, but there were some fun decks, and many of the cheap neutral cards were pretty solid, like Tar Creeper, Fire Plume Phoenix, Servant of Kalimos, to name a few. At the time, just playing Elementals was good enough to have some success on the lower ranks, and I had a good time with them.
Also, for the first time ever, it was reasonable to use Hungry Crab because of all the Murloc decks that came up with Gentle Megasaur and Rockpool Hunter. I remember how upset I was a long time ago that one of my first epics ever was the infamously bad crab, and all of a sudden, it paid off having it in the collection.
I also remember having fun with Beast Druid, thanks to Bittertide Hydra and Shellshifter, back then when Innervate was still a card and the good beast synergies like Mark of Y'Shaarj and Menagerie Warden were still around.
It was also the time Secret Mage became a thing for the first time, thanks to Arcanologist. There were some good cards for it in Karazhan and MSG, but Ungoro was where the deck would finally be listed as one of the strongest in the game. I actually thought that was pretty cool, at the time. Cards like Kirin Tor Mage and Counterspell were ignored for so long before this, that it felt like old cards came out as new.
And my favorite deck at the time was definitely Silence Priest. The idea everyone was laughing at, the worst card ever in the game, Purify, showed up in a good, competitive deck. The supposed joke card Humongous Razorleaf turned out to be a big threat. And Lyra the Sunshard was such a cool legendary, so much fun to play with... I was so happy to have her on my other account.
Over time, I came to resent some of the cards from that expansion though, primarily Stonehill Defender, Primordial Glyph and Vilespine Slayer. The "random" discoveries that could decide games are frustrating me to this day, even though Glyph is not as present anymore these days. At the time, Casino Mage was one of the best decks with cards like Babbling Book, Medivh, the Guardian, Firelands Portal and Cabalist's Tome and of course Glyph, and a dack that I absolutely hated playing against. Glyph would also haunt me far into Kobolds until Tempo Mage finally started disappearing.
Slayer is just a card that made me think "powercreep" and I think it's still busted. It always reminds me of Ben Brode saying about Kidnapper that it was once tested at 5 mana and turned out "hyper frustrating" (check the wiki).
Well... all in all, JTU was a pretty enjoyabe expansion, despite the Pirates. The Standard rotation back then was also not unwelcome, because I was growing a little sick of Reno Jackson. Consdering how insane the game got since then, it actually makes me nostalgic. But with the comparatively low power level of this year's expansions, I hope the first set of 2019 will feel about as good as Journey to Un'goro did back then.
It was no Whispers of the Old Gods, but it was still good.

This deck works well against aggro decks but struggles too much against any control deck.
From rank 5 going forward 90% of my games are against control decks, so I won't be trying this for now.
Kudo's for the originality though!

This is exactly why Rush is an awesome mechanic for Hearthstone. A Sea Giant with Charge? Impossible. It'd be busted AF. But give something kinda like one Rush, and that's a card they can print. Someone might say "Rush is just weak charge, so it's boring" misses the entire point. Because Rush is weaker, it means Rush minions can be far more interesting than Charge minions.
Anyhow, Treant mechanics are interesting enough.

this is exactly the kind of card where people are like "meh" or "it's an okay card" at first, and then the card is everywhere and makes a type of deck relevant in the meta. calling it now, if that card doesn't define the meta it will certainly at least take Elemental Shaman off the meme shelf.
