    Quest Res Albatross Priest - rank 5 easy ;-)

     He wants to get past Rank 5 . 

    Even with a sub50% wr everyone will eventually get to 5 . That’s the easy part. 

    I usually only play Paladin, but this season I played like 12 games or so . The only advice I can give to OP , would be to stick with one deck ( for me it would be Warrior over Warlock) . The learning experience generally helps more than switching nonstop to counter a metadeck.

    posted a message on Why do we have to play the adventure to get the new cards?!

    I honestly can somewhat understand the point of OP . 

    Sure Blizzard put quite some effort in making the adventure, and all the thematic flavor that goes with it, a d also the required time to get the cards is ridiculously low... But there is also the point of simply buying ( well later stages since the first one is free) a product and only wanting one thing you enjoy. 

    Like buying a Toolbox were you only need 5 of the 30 Tools included . Maybe they are useful later, maybe OP finds time or enjoyment in playing the adventure later but for now I can understand he just wants "that" thing out of the box/game.

    This Dragon had to be introduced , since  pure Dragon Paladin was waaaay to strong . So the discover pool from Bronze Explorer had to be poluted. I doubt it will stop the cancerous tier 0 Dragon Pally tho.

     I promise they didn't create this card to pollute a discover pool from one card

     And i promise everything I wrote is 100% correct and my honest opinion.

    posted a message on DoD Highlander Dragon Paladin - How to make this deck better?

    Atm I’m trying a version with one Mechanoegg, a Mechanical Whelp Zilleax and Kangors army. It’s good so far but I only play like 2 games a day and am only rank 8 or 9 dunno exactly. 

    Personally i would cut Frizz. It’s very slow and often not worth it. Also even when I didn’t played the Highlander version I had problems connecting the Buff Chain from Talritha. Equality is certainly a good option.

    It’s like asking the Gouverment for a free beer every Saturday. 

    Nice to have but certainly not desperately needed, and there are definitely more important things on the to do list.

    So it’s a worse Frightened Flunky? 

    That certainly helps Paladin to get back into top ranks... NOT . 

    Oh boy, the Paladin cards lately all remind me of that old Kansas song.

    Quote from Jonesy978 >>

    Rogue's classic set is disgusting. 

    Shadowstep, Backstab, Edwin, SI Agent. Those cards alone guarantee insane early game removal. Today I faced a 6/6 Van Cleef on turn 2(!) as my opponent used the coin and vendetta (for zero mana).

    Vendetta obviously is a new card ,but Rogue always has ways to play or create zero or one cost cards, which in turn allows them to barf out a huge Van Cleef early in the game. I hate that card so much, it is just ridiculous. Entire games are won or lost based on does my opponent have Van Cleef plus some cheap junk in his hand to start the game.

     But you can counter Edwin with a 3 Mana BGH.. nvm . Or a 2 Mana Owl.. gosh darn it. Or Execute, Huntersmark, Naturalize,and Equality.. guess not. 

    Lets be real here . Many pros are betting on Edvin getting HoF next Expansion, wich seems only fair since so many counters got nerfed . I hope for some variety due the new Herocards.

    Rogue should always have access to some cheap shenanigans, but on the other hand it should also have counterplays ( like a tokenbased strategy) . Edvin can autowin even those unfavorite matchups single handily. If they nerf or HoF him , it should definitely even things out.

    It has a good classic/basic set sure, but that alone is nowhere near enough. Mage also has a fantastic classic and basic set, and it's bottom tier, multiple times. Warrior really only has Brawl from it.

    The thing is: Hearthstone is mostly a tempo based game, and Rogue excels at that, because the new sets always complement this aspect. Raiding Party, Waggle Pick, Underbelly Fencer, Vendetta, Burglar, Flik, Heistbaron, etc... there will ALWAYS be room for tempo decks and Rogue always receives cards to support that. Yes, new cards. Just basic and classic doesn't cut it, look at Mage.

    The same thing was said about Paladin always being the in the meta, and look at it now. Just Classic/Basic doesn't cut it, receive 6 crappy sets and you're for sure the worst class.

     Wut? 

    Paladin had several spots where it was the worst ( or at least bottom 3 ) , because of the low power core set. Every time someone writes "I can’t remember when Paladin was bad" I gotta shake my head, and think about a Goldfish....But coming back to Rogue, one thing people seem to forget is their heropower. Dealing 2 dmg over two turns is by far the most impactful HP tempowise. 

    Mage is certainly more set-powerlevel depending in that regard. Also since the Manawyrm nerf, i am not sure if the core set is still one of the best.

    Backstab and Sap are just ridiculous if you take a closer look at them. 

    Blizzard tryed and probably will try to make cards with those effects on minions ( like that pirate that saps a guy , but I cannot remember the name atm), but makeing a card that could replace those would be powercreep beyond all madness. 

    Everytime i play Tirion, and he gets Sap‘d I think " Hmm 2 Mana: make your opponent skip a turn and make his Tirion cost 16 Mana... seems  balanced...." 

    Its an extreme example for sure, but it shows how polarizing the card is. 

     This is exactly it. It's amazing that of all the hearthpwn complaints, you never hear anything about sap.

    Did you say something???

     Posts from 2016 dont count since i can only remember stuff from this week. 

     Joking aside, the reason people dont complain a lot about sap is probably owed the fact sap is just mediocre against aggressive, or decks with only Battlecry minions (like Control Warrior had) . 

    Still, the polarizing aspect is too high imo. Its like Blizzard would print a card that says : 2 mana heal and set your health to 50..... Pretty useless in a control or midrage mirror , since the card doesnt generate or do anything for the boardstate. But against classes that try to end the game with Burst its unreasonable strong. So strong infact, that the class that uses this spell would never really be bad...

    Maybe it was a bad example but u get the point . I also remember a arena (usually i dont watch arena stuff) video coupple years ago where Kripp talked about the same thing. Sap is probably even more broken there. People are just hoping for their opponent to play their big whatever-Bolderfist Ogre, and sap it to get the temposwing.
