I'm playing decks based on whatever Legendaries I get, F2P HYPERS!!!!!
Drakonid Operative, because I like to have killed off Tirion trice before I even drew him...
I always wanted to test Lyra.
"All those fancy schmancy people with their blocks of ice and their infestations. Well, not while I'm around."
Note: it can no longer Counter spells once it awakens.
Blizzard is really talented in making bad cards work/synergize (for example purify or evolve) so i have faith in them that they know what they are doing.
While i agree that the overall power level of cards looks weaker i think A LOT of the cards this expansion were done for future synergies in another expansion.
For example look at Deathaxe Punisher , this card has absolutely no place in an expansion with only 2 neutral lifesteal minions right ? purify also wasn't as good until Humongous Razorleaf came around, Drakkari Enchanter is also a card that strikes me as one of these, at the moment we do not have too crazy at the end of your turn combos (unless they heavily considered wild) so i believe this will also be for future synergiees.
And look how the expansion already looks just RIGHT NOW a lot of people know that Auctionmaster Beardo was considered bad and dust, but see how people are already finding new uses and ideas for him with exodia paladin ?
The same goes for Burgly Bully while not as bad as beardo it wasn't seen as constucted viable for many people (only in a few mage decks like reno mage in wild)
So i believe that this expansion will give us a lot new synergies to build around with.
