    Wierd.. I could have sworn standard was:

    Basic + Classic + Previous 2 years of expansions

    Did they change the rotation parameters at some point?

    **EDIT BELOW**

    Ok.. apparently they did change the parameters at some point, I was sure I'd heard it explained how I wrote it above and so I looked it up:
    Ben Brode explains Standard

    Sure enough: "last 2 years of expansion + basic + classic"

    "last 2 years of sets"

    Nov. 2016 to April 2018 does NOT equal 2 years.

     Ok show us some matches in which the way you said the rotation works was in place.
    He means last 2 full years from when they do the rotation. We only have rotations at the first expansion of the year, in which only the last 2 full years of expansions are contained.
    But if you want to make more petitions go for it. I'll get my popcorn ready.

     You didn't notice how reno decks were gone in Un Goro? That we haven't seen them all through 2017?

    To be clear, currently raza is not scheduled to rotate out until at least november of 2018 (if not later)

    Standard retains the last 2 years of expansions. Raza was released November 2016.

    I'm saying November (or later) is too long to wait!

     Seems weird to boycott spending money on the game when you have no clue how it works.
    Although with an ignorant post like this im not surprised. Raza has been in the game for quite a while, and Anduin is the main offender. People were't complaining about reno priest.
     Both cards are fine in isolation(Anduin is powerful enough to see play in decks even without raza, but I don't think he will be a must include by any means, and certainly not a fucking win condition), it's the combination of the two that is broken, similar to the old force of nature+savage roar combo.
     And we had that combo for quite a while. We also had reno+kazakus in the same deck. That's the beauty of a rotation, we don't have to deal with these things forever.
    Now if you want to talk about wild that's completely different, but it's actually fun to have broken combination of cards once in a while.
    My main point was that this thread is all about raza, when raza is only part of the deck and shouldn't really get blamed for it. Anduin is a much stronger standalone card than raza. Doesn't really matter, this thread is a joke anyhow.

    Maybe look into how rotations work before you complain about them needing to change them? Hilarious that you're petitioning blizzard to do something they are already doing.

    Umbra isn't run in all lists. It's not a mandatory craft.

    posted a message on i can't win against aggro as a razakus

    Gotta love hearthpwn, insulting people who come here looking for advice.

     Trying to find a perfect list for raza priest isn't the best way to play the deck. It's the type of deck that you can tech in practically anything you want. 

    Mages getting you down? You can tech in more healing or even eater of secrets or weapon removal

    Paladins giving you trouble? Tech in anything that helps with early game removal. Just shadow word horror on it's own can destroy a lot of aggro paladin boards.

    Raza priest is also not an easy deck to play. You will get better as time goes on. Just on the mulligan there is a million things yo think about. It's also not favored against mage. Paladin is a bit easier because you can remove their boards quite easily with the right hands.

    Given the amount of dumb responses you're getting I would recommend https://www.reddit.com/r/competitivehs for more specific advice.

    What is happening on your screen is not what is happening on your opponent's screen. If you had 2 accounts you could test this and see. There is delay.

    Quote from DeeBosch717 >>

    take out siphon soul, really? i feel like that has helped me a lot when opponents bring out some super powerful cards. could you explain a little for me?

     At some point you are going to have to look at all the advice people have given you and really think to yourself about a couple things
    What kind of deck do you want? Do you want it to have all the removal? Should it stall as long as possible? Should it have a lot of greed with cards like Nzoth and Rin? Should it have more early game? Do I need doomsayers to stall? Do I need mountain giants to beat other slow decks?
    Cubelock is a deck that doesn't have a perfect list, because the meta is not one dimensional. At the top end you have to deal with extreme greed of other warlock decks, jade druid and raza priest, and hyper aggressive fast decks as well as midrange decks with huge value and tempo. 
    Think about what you want, and what you feel like you're lacking. Only you can get comfortable with your own deck and only you can see what you're struggling with in your individual matches. Don't go on a crafting frenzy, just try to balance the deck the way it fits for you. Especially because cubelock is a skill intensive deck to master and constantly changing your list won't always fix things. Adapt your list as you get more experienced and see where the holes are. Don't judge anything after a few games, play a long stretch and see what you can do better, in both gameplay and deckbuilding.

    mainly dragon priest and mages, a few quest mages really hurt. i know cube is supposed to be slow but i usually cant get anything going until turn 6 or so.

     Honestly those are pretty bad matchups for cubelock, but if you need more early game i would recommend doomsayers. The stonehills are a bit too greedy for you i think.
    I wouldn't worry that much about quest mage though because it's a pretty uncommon deck and your deck really isn't meant to beat it.

    What are you running into mostly? And what are you having trouble beating?

    The only suggestions you can make for cubelock is to go more greedy or more anti-aggro, so what is the meta like at rank 20 for you?

    I also wouldn't be too hard on yourself. I don't know how experienced you are with the game but cubelock is a hard deck to play.

    posted a message on Legendary Shaman Weapon, is it seeing much use?

    It's by far the worst legendary weapon and that was figured out within about a minute of it being revealed.

    All you have to do is look through the collection to see how bad the spells it can hit are.

    posted a message on Argent Squire in Aggrodin - why?

    It has divine shield. Selfless hero does not have divine shield. It only gives divine shield randomly when you can trade the way you want.

    You don't need brain cells to figure this one out.

    But you should cut it for 3 bad cards. Have fun with that.

    All the cards you mentioned have one thing in common, 1 health. You don't see the difference here? Squire is nothing like those cards, it's run as a card that is sticky, it's harder to kill. Cutting it for more aggressive cards makes no sense. It's not as aggressive but it stays alive, which is way more important for a deck that wants to land it's power cards that swing the board. You won't land your dire wolfs or your tarim or your kings on a card that dies to 1 damage.  I don't want to call to arms into something that can die almost instantly.

    Honestly, if you want to discuss cards to cut for other cards mention veteran. Veteran at least is comparable to other aggressive minions and it also has 1 health. 

    The other cards you mentioned though are really bad. Like almost unplayable bad, which is why none of them barely ever see play.
