    Well, seeing as how you're playing Elysiana for the control mirror and not the aggro/midrange matchups you mentioned that doesn't seem very fair to the rest of us, does it? Avoiding inconvenient matchups and only play the ones you're favored in?

    I agree with what everybody is saying about Elysiana's power level. She's quite good but very clear and specific in her usage. A good design that supports a specific archetype and encourages strategizing and smart decision making.

    I do think you shouldn't be able to discover more copies of her with her own ability, though. If you have other ways of copying her/her ability (Shudds, Baleful, etc), great. That's why they exist, to let you get away with crazy stuff. Even if you get her off Rafaam, great. But she shouldn't be able to duplicate herself; that's RNG on top of RNG and can decide a match through no fault of either player.

    Kangor's is crucial to regaining tempo. No other Paladin card in rotation has an effect even remotely similar to it. You can try a high cost minion of some sort but it won't come remotely close to Endless Army.

    Have you whiffed on Prismatic Lens a lot and drawn Shirvallah, the Tiger? Seems like a big risk

    Staple card in Big Shaman, a must-remove minion that can be cheated out numerous times.

    Go back to the drawing board with this one. Zero recourse against Murloc Shaman (unless you draw THE PERFECT hand) and no recourse against Bomb Warrior, unless Brawl are the final two cards in their deck.

     Crystalsong Portal has a really high floor on power level (Druid minions are generally pretty damn good) and is critical to token Druid recovering from board wipes.

    Until the meta settles I'd say you would be well served by running Void Walker and some heals - not just for holding the line against aggro, but healing up from bombs too.

    posted a message on ME STILL GO FACE

    I enjoy setting and reinforcing the "ceiling" of the meta, preventing combo and control from getting too degenerate by demanding early responses to my threats. It's both empowering and a service to the meta by requiring consistency and planning from non-aggro decks over a nuclear arms race of "who can play the biggest threat first"

    Aggro and midrange are always strong early in an expansion (especially post-rotation), as they are very proactive decks. Give it time. And give it a Hungry Crab.

    Hopefully we will see these events more often, like in Magic Arena. They're good alternatives to grinding ranked play. However, they should be separate from the Brawl; people want their weekly dose of jank without having to go full tryhard Standard

    Quote from Bersak >>

    The expansion is not 24h old and you are talking about HoF-ing cards already. Keep cool guys, decks will get lots of finetunig and become stronger with time. 

    Come back in a month and we are talking about balance. It‘s just normal that stand alone strong cards dominate the meta on day 1

     Especially when the 3 hero cards are already a known quantity; even though Zul'jin has only been out for three months people have way more experience building and playing decks based on him. Same goes for Hagatha and Dr. Boom, but with an even longer period between their release and now.

    Bizarre that people are irate about the lack of dragons when we never heard a similar demand for large numbers of mammoths or ravens. Dragons are big and dramatic; you should only see a couple per set at most, lest they lose their luster. Unless the entire set is based around dragons, of course...

    Misdirection: not just a hunter secret. Wait until the actual reveal.
