    I was too busy to do everything involved with this one, but my first idea was a Nozdormu fast brawl. So have vote for that one. Wish it was a permanent mode really, like timed chess. I always play fast and nothing grinds my gears more than a slow opponent.

    posted a message on Casual Ettiquette

    I only play casual if I have a daily quest to finish, no decent deck to do it with, and I'm close to moving up a ladder tier. There's almost no excuse to play casual with a netdeck other than cowardice. Even my fun homebrew/meme decks I usually play on ladder after I tier-up, since I have nothing to lose at rank 15, 10 or 5 and I can try my deck against real decks.

    If you're seriously testing a deck, you're not going to gain much input playing dragon Warlocks, spell-damage Warriors and noobs with all basic cards. Have some fortitude and try it on ladder.  

    Keep casual casual 2019.

    Might as well have just done Odd Paladin vs. Boom Warrior.

    To me the biggest issue is not including a deck tracker in the game. The people who don't use them are the ones that can't (mobile users) or the ones that dont know about them (new players). Those are dumb reasons to be at a disadvantage. This would not be a hard feature for Blizzard to implement considering there are already so many out there. For those that dont want it for whatever reason, just make it an option

    posted a message on GJ Team 5.

    The recent nerfs were like an MLB team trading away their best player mid-season for prospects knowing that there is no chance of doing well this season. The rest of the season will be even worse, but the future is brighter. I think (hope) team 5 came to realize re-balancing HS was impossible so long as DKs (and a few other oppressive cards) exist, so they are just prepping for the rotation in April. In the meantime we are stuck with a few months of hunterstone. It sucks, but once the rotation hits I think we'll see a meta as good as if not better than when Ungoro was released.

    posted a message on Current Meta is too slow

    I agree with the OP, and it's literally because of one card: Deathstalker Rexxar. With half my games being against Hunter these days, its super annoying when this card comes out on turn 5 or 6 and the opponent is then discovering 2 cards every turn. It takes FOREVER. This card is one of the worst cards ever printed, IMO, not only because of its insane power level, but because every game slows to a snail's pace once its played.

    Rotation 2019 can't come soon enough. Sayonara DKs.

    Zul'Jin is like Ultimate Infestation on steroids. It's like a 10 mana equivalent of Anyfin Can Happen plus Mysterious Mysterious Challenger plus DOOM!. Not sure who that that would be a good idea.

    It's a good expansion suffering due to bad prior expansions (Frozen Throne was the worst). Once those rotate out the game will be so much better, assuming Blizzard does not release a replacement expansion of insane OP cards.

    The rotation can't come soon enough. Dk's need to f-ing go. Such dumb cards. I lost 5 out of my last 6 games because opponent played DK on the turn I had lethal and it completely flipped the game.

    posted a message on What is the best Healadin approach?

    I've tried to make healadin work every expansion. While this is definitely the best its ever been, its still not close to matching the power level of top meta decks. To quote the classic movie WarGames, when it comes to healadin, "the only winning move is not to play."

    Keep in mind Ben Brode has not even been gone a year. That means 4/6 expansions currently in standard are were released under his control. Next expansion/rotation, that'll drop to 1/4. Then we'll see whether the problem is Brode's leadership/vision, or something more systemic in the game itself.

    posted a message on Electra Stormsurge and Discover
    Quote from CapnMunch >>

    The reason why is because Electra is casting the second spell.  Discover is not a targeted effect, nor a random one.  I dare say a Choose One spell would work similarly.

     This is not a problem with other cards. For example, when Yogg casts a discover spell, you just get a random card from the discover pool. This should work the same. He should have discovered a battelcry minion (from casting the spell) and the gotten a second random battlecry minion from Electra
