    Forgot to mention, fel reaver saw tons of play and it exactly did this, mill your own deck.

    Because it's a bad play on curve and by the time they play it they already corrupted it. Some people in desperation do play tickatus on turn 6 and it might work out. This is assuming they are running a bad card in their deck anyways.

    Occasionally yes you'll hit your good cards but you mill out the trash and bad draws improving your draws on average. Ask any pro if they could run a 25 card deck and they'd say yes in a heart beat. Remember Prince malcazar, it added cards to your deck making it utter trash.

    Go ahead, change my mind. 

     No... I don't think I will.

    You're right. The dialogue here should be, "how do we beat this?" not "I can't win against this, so it's impossible".

    Sometimes a complaint is warranted and if a specific card or deck is being used way too much, then obviously something is wrong, but this meta feels fine.

     Just because a deck is popular doesn't mean it needs to be nerfed. The counter might just not be discovered yet or people haven't tried to find new strategies, its punishing the player base for playing a popular deck. There are no specific cards that need nerfing the game is fine as is. There are no warranted complaints here.

    I can somewhat tell if something is OP or not by watching streamers play. I don't call cards OP because I'm salty and I acknowledge playing OP cards as well myself.

     There are no OP cards though, a few bad cards yes but none of the current cards stand out is particularly strong. These are all negative QQ threads that this post is pointing out. Street fighter 2 and star craft don't need patches, people know how to make adjustments and adapt to the game to win without the need for patches. This game doesn't need arbitrary patches either. It's bad enough the paladin sword and deck of lunacy got nerfed merely weeks out of the gate. People have a learn to play issue and a complaining issue currently in this game.

    Quote from Wyrdward >>

    The discussion of paladin having the best drops in standard was already in progress though. No point in making a rethread even if its slightly out of date

    You have only been here sice yesterday and with this post you have already made a total fool of yourself. Congratulations on that.

     I apologize but the discussion on hand is about paladin drops in standard which they are definitely good right now with librams, sword of the fallen and crab rider.

    You are being toxic and negative currently. Just wanting someone to use an existing thread if it already exists to reduce clutter. Hopefully nothing personal stranger. Don't mean to personally attack you but I feel personally attacked with the fool comment.

    posted a message on Tickatus need a change

    Tickatus is a bad card. Removing cards from your opponents deck is a down side for you because smaller decks are better. a 6 mana 8/8 with a down side isn't a good card. If tickatus was a 5 mana 8/8 with taunt it might see competitive play but it certainly doesn't need a nerf. Hoping this card becomes part of next years core set just so people realize how weak it actually is seeing 0 play.

     

    Also this is a duplicate thread, this should be deleted and reposted into that thread.

    Quote from Kinkyjohnfowler >>

    Duplicate threads (like Tick threads) and threads with no content other than salt being deleted seems fair (and from what I’ve seen the mods do a good job of this), but deleting threads because they are critical of the game seems a bit silly.

    If you want to discuss strategies then r/CompetitiveHS is probably a better option.

     Duplicate threads and complaint threads are a crisis for the site atm, stamping them out should be a priority. Its not criticism but complaining that needs to go, negativity and complaining are on the rise so remoting negative threads is of the utmost importance to keep the community form devolving into a toxic echo chamber. There's nothing silly about it

    I find income here less and less to be honest. I like the layout of the site and it's a good place to get info and uodates because I'm not a social media user at all, mainly for the same reasons I visit here less. As time goes on, people are becoming more and more toxic and entitled. It's an incredibly negative atmosphere and it's only getting worse. Out of cards is significantly better, from a community stand point, but I'm not a huge fan of the layout.

    The thing that disappoints me is people have such high bars for others and such low bars for themselves. No mistakes are acceptable, everything has to be met with anger and personal insults.

    I'm not wanting to suppress expression what so ever but far more work can be done to close duplicate threads and threads that honestly belong in the salt thread. The salt thread seems to have a stigma to it and people get offended when you suggest posting there but it's there for a reason. Have a rant, swear, piss, moan, kick off, do it all, without judgement. Creating new threads just to say you don't like mage is unnecessary attention seeking and this site does seem to let that slide quite a bit. What happens though is these people are far more aggressive in their posting and it takes over the general mood of the site.

    People also seem to have severe difficulty with a 2 way conversation, they don't want a conversation at all, they want an echo chamber of bitching to make them feel better for their own failings. Just locking duplicate threads and moving certain threads to the salt post would be a significant improvement and wouldn't infringe on people's ability to say their piece or have a moan. Before anyone says it, free speech is not a thing in this sense, free speech ensures you can speak out without reourcussion or punishment, usually from a government. This is often confused with "I can say what I like when I like and to whom I like". No, that's just not correct at all and isn't what free speech is to protect. 

     Pretty much this but you aren't suppressing expression by removing threads and banning topics. This private forum and it's community post is expressing its free speech choosing not to platform or post content that goes against the values of a non toxic community bent on negativity. and yes words need consequences that doesn't mean it's not free speech, you just wouldn't be arrested for what you say.  There is no obligation to platform what the toxic portion of this community says. There is no need to create new threads the blow of steam salt thread should encompass any mage discussion assuming it isn't negative. There doesn't need to be another ten thousandth mage complaint thread.

    Ticktakus - 5 mana 8/8 without corruption, just remove 5 cards from your oponent deck

     Sorry but I stopped reading there. If you don't realise that already a 5 mana 8/8 is ridiculous plus the OP battlecry on top, I don't think this is worth any further mentioning

     Milling your opponents deck is a down side for YOU playing tickatus since the less cards in your deck, the better your deck is. If anything a 5 mana 8/8 milling your opponents library for 5 is a moderate price to pay. Maybe if it also had taunt it'd be playable but as it stands its a 6 mana 8/8 with a down side.

    posted a message on Some forum user action to quell complaining threads

    The amount of complaining here has gotten so out of control over the years with every expansion it's a blight on the community here, especially over cards like tickatus which aren't even very strong has hit a critical mass. Ideally all threads discussing the topic would be quickly purged, removed and directed to the group therapy blow off steam thread. This is not the place to complain or mindless vent about how op or awful the card is for the game, this is for discussing the general game or card strategies, not beg for buffs and nerfs.

    If the mods are unmilling to simply ban all forms posts of these types of threads, it's in our best interest if we merely boycott these threads having everyone agree to not acknowledge them, read them or click on them it's likely we can least have some head way in stopping them from taking over the front page constantly. Everyone could use a break and just mellow out enjoying the game discussing cards and strategy as they currently exist and can be used not how they should be in some dream future.
