    Nah, none of these cards are OP or overly bothersome. Been 12/12 clowns and ridiculously buffed totems all day for me. Still, not the biggest aggro Hunter fan...

    posted a message on Where do you see Rogue headed in the meta?

    I'm playing a C'Thun, the Shattered Rogue deck which is immense fun. So much value and interesting, varied play patterns. My most recent game, against a Warlock, went to fatigue. The one before that was wrapped up early with a second turn 8/8 Edwin VanCleef.

    Rogue has fantastic card draw and tutoring options to find the pieces of the C'Thun puzzle. Running C'Thun, Grand Empress Shek'zara, StowawaySecret PassageDirty Tricks and Swindle for this.

    Generation off Wand Thief, Pharaoh Cat and EVIL Miscreant helps keep one alive in the early game and provides flexibility later. Ticket Master has also proved key in many situations.

    Running two other legendaries in addition to the three already mentioned: Shadowjeweler Hanar and Jandice Barov.

    posted a message on Blizzard's response to the whole system revamp

    Even buying MDF packs yesterday with the reward track gold I'd earned so far, I could only get 76 packs. I guess that's the price of a November release. (For the past few expansions, I've bought about 85 packs with gold.)

    Having now spent a few of the reward track levels' gold an expansion early, I've worked out I'll need to get to about level 84 for the same amount of gold that I'm accustomed to stockpiling over a 4-month expansion. I'm currently on level 18.

    It'll be interesting to see if this is more work than my usual dailies plus a few wins. (Just did a quick back-of-the-envelope calculation using the numbers off here and it'll take about 2,700 XP every day for 4 months - doesn't sound likely, but let's see.)

    I also hope there 's resource support (extra XP, gold, dust, cards and packs) for the mini set coming in a couple of months. Fingers crossed.

    Havent seen a single Yogg get played all day on ladder.

    Haven't seen a single C'thun come together all day on ladder.

    I think i've seen a total of 2 N'zoth's make some nice boards in Paladin and Warrior.

    I've seen a handful of Y'Shaarj, but only seeing it in Warlock so far. Warlock has been by far the class I've gone up against the most on day 1.

    Yogg and C'thun both might be too slow. Tickatus is pushing C'thun out of the meta. C'thun is already slow as it is, but the prevalence of Tickatus/Warlock variants is killing C'thun.

    I played C'Thun three times in one game at D5 yesterday - rogue against priest. The third 30-damage hit finally finished him and his resurrection shenanigans off. 

    Played a few N'Zoths and Y'Shaarjs today with two different Paladin decks while while hovering around D4.

    Opened 85 normal packs and 5 golden packs. Picked up 5 legendaries and 18 epics (including 2 golden) from the normal packs. Nothing noteworthy out of the 5 golden packs.

    posted a message on When to open MDF packs? Now or later?

    How does everyone plan to approach MDF pack openings and the mid-expansion mini set?

    In the past, I've bought and opened all the packs I could on set release day, dusted any extra copies of cards, crafted the legendaries and epics I wanted, and spent the next 4 months saving for the next expansion. Rinse and repeat.

    The calculus changes with a 35-card mini set dropping mid-expansion. What to do? Should one perhaps stop opening packs once one has all the commons and rares and keep the remaining packs for the mini set release?

    Another consideration with the new reward track launching a week before MDF and being heavily front loaded is one could easily end up spending a large chunk of the expansion's gold now instead of squirreling it away for the first expansion of 2021. I played a few games this afternoon and already received 200g that'll almost certainly go towards MDF packs.

    posted a message on Can a F2P player have a complete collection?

    Here's a sample of one to compare F2P and P2P.

    As a F2P player completing my dailies and then playing a few extra games on ladder over the 4-month DoD expansion, I collected enough gold and dust for 9/25 AoO legendaries and many, but not all, of the set's epics. (One of these AoO legendaries came from a bundle I bought during Scholomance Academy.) 

    A similar approach to playing and purchase of the SA pre-release mega bundle and Felosophy and Horseman Uther bundles netted me 18/25 SA legendaries and a full set of other rarity cards.

    How close to a full collection can a F2P player expect to have?

    posted a message on I’ve never regretted anything as much as duels

    I've found Duels fun so far. I'm much more likely to break up my Standard ladder play with a game of Duels than one of the other modes. I rarely play Arena and Battlegrounds has never appealed.

    The new mode also gives me a reason to learn about the older sets. I never had much of an incentive before as I don't play Wild.

    Another new game mode coming next year.
