    Want to play some unreleased priest minions? Galakrond and invoke is discovering them all! Fun times killing Edwin VanCleef with Aeon Reaver!

    The nerf on Alex was tiny. No one was running it pre nerf just because of the high roll of her adding a copy of herself to your hand. The swing potential is still enormous and I imagine will be relevant until she rotates out.

    Zul'Drak Ritualist worth including as a singleton in your deck? Only played in 0.4% of decks according to HSreplay but is surely the best (and only for a lot of classes) tech against ress priest, the most 'hated' deck right now? Isn't too bad a turn 4 play anyway and normally survives with 4/5 health. Can be problematic against quest hunter (very rarely play these) and zoo lock, but if you can wait until you can deal with the summons to play it then its a solid taunt.

    Mage getting thoroughly out played, plays Yoggs box which casts Forest's aids, unleash the hounds then storm bringer which gives al'akir, Kalegos + 5 other high stat legendaries. Not sure how I didn't put my fist through the screen.

    Seems like they put a lot more thought on the battleground changes than they did for ranked. I guess this is going to be the format that everyone will play.

     To be fair to them, the Battlegrounds changes are also far less complicated. How many minions are there really to balance against?

    Taking out Nightmare Amalgam is the equivelant of removing all lackeys in standard. It's going to totally change the game. Standard nerfs are not going to change anything.

    posted a message on Your Experience with Galakrond shaman

    Its beatable but it pretty annoying that you have to put so many CC cards in your deck just to beat it. When people say 'just play this deck and farm it' thats fine and all, but I don't want to play hearthstone with the knowledge  that I have to play 1 of 2/3 decks and all other decks are just going to lose 90% of the time to 1 class. It has just too many power/swing turns.

    This whole expansion is built on swing turns though and as satisfying as it is when it happens for you, ultimately it's taking the skill out of the game. When you're 20 turns into a game, played past double battlecry quest turns, full power galakrond and Nithogg and an insane shudderwock gets played that you just can't answer it's pretty disheartening.

    posted a message on So Cyclone is broken now!!

    I don't know if I've just played people who played the deck badly, but my impression was how terrible flamewaker mage is. They just get 1 big turn where they do generally do a lot of dmg and clear the board, but then they've got an empty hand and I've got about 15hp left and a handful of cards. Then they concede.

    I commend blizz for being brave and making such a massive move to shake up the meta, but I do think though that maybe they should have only added in class 'wild' cards and not the neutrals, or maybe just not added N'Zoth back in. The game feels like it did when Hadronox druid was king and that wasn't a good time.

    No I agree with your points. I've stopped playing ladder for the exact reason that is combo priest. I don't want to be forced into playing decks that are boring just to counter the same OP deck you play against every other game. I'm not sure nerfs every few weeks is the answer. Maybe 1 balance a month would be fine, and buffing classes as well as nerfing. I've got no issue with cards being changed that are just not fun to play against either, regardless of their winrate. I'm just not sure there is a magic bullet that is going to please everyone, and maybe that is what Blizz is scared of.

    As for speaking up, I've read plenty of threads both here and on the official forums for years decrying all the T1 decks that netdeckers just copy and paste from their favourite streamer, but Blizzard appears to have selective hearing I'm afraid. Whether they're scared of driving away the F2P players who just dust and create 1 T1 deck to play forever until the next OP deck is found, or their play testing is that rigorous that they know what is better for us better than we do, they don't appear to care about player opinion until it has reached a critical mass like it did with Dr Boom.

    I do know I wouldn't waste my time and effort playing if I 'hated the game' like one poster said though. Maybe he enjoys it but playing token druid just because it is cheap and works, I can understand why someone would hate the game. I loved WoW for many years but as soon as I wasn't having fun anymore I stopped playing, regardless of my investment in it and my affection for the game.

    Why would you even bother playing a game you hate?

    posted a message on What is the purpose of casual?

    Playing non meta / own recipe decks. Trying to play anything but a T1 on ladder (maybe T2 if you get lucky match ups that aren't control warrior or combo priest) is just punishing and draining. Losing to T1 decks constantly with random off meta creations in casual still gets pretty boring, but pyschologically it's less arduous because you're not losing anything. Plus if you're bored of playing specific decks you can just concede without any real punish,
