A couple weeks ago a dude opened a new account and started from scratch and went to legend in under 16 hours. Free account.
He used Token Druid, maybe you should try that.
I think the problem with Priest is that if you want to play aggro there are better classes. If you want to play midrange there are better classes. If you want to play control there are better classes. And if you want to play combo, there are better classes.
Generally speaking Priest does well when it has either great control or great combo tools. It has neither at the moment. Or at least not a critical mass of such tools.
Priest probably need either a top shelf board clear or a nice tutor to push them into relevance again.
I think maybe a mode where you had to build a deck for each class, then face off with one of them at random. Why would this matter? Well, I think it's quite doable to build one netdeck on a budget. Building 9, especially from 9 different classes is WAY harder. Obviously this format would favor those folks with large collections, but it would have the effect of making the lower ranks power level lower.
And it might actually be a fun way to play the game. Sort of like Whizbang vs. Whizbang every match, but with you building the decks.
I was excited for it. Saved gold for it. Bought one wing then stopped buying.
Wing 2 just felt the same as wing 1 to me. I wish they had gone for a more RPG feel than just a bigger Rogue feel. But, I'm sure they know their market.
I won't be buying wings 3-5. Saving my gold for the next expansion instead.
Well, some of us still have nightmares from 2016.
(note: Leper Gnome, Abusive Sergeant, Knife Juggler, Ironbeak Owl and Arcane Golem were all nerfed)
Not every aggro deck is brainless, but it didn't take much of an algorithm to run that deck. And it was a terror to play against. I remember holding a Sludge Belcher in my mulligan to try and survive only to be dead on turn 4.
So, it was a very frustrating time. Not much different than when Patches was leading warrior to a bunch of easy wins.
Aggro cards have been toned down over time though. Now they usually feel more midrange/tokenesque. Used to be you'd try to run aggo out of steam as they didn't have draw. Now they have seemingly endless refill. But the decks ARE slower and less brainless. But, I think the whole face hunter era really put a reputation on aggro that just won't die.
If you built it yourself, that's original right.
It would better clarify if you can hint us on what makes it unique, like your twist on the deck.
I dunno. I decided archivist wasn't necessary. I just try to out value her in mirrors. My last game was just this vs a bomb warrior with archivist. I also don't run executes or shield slams. I rely on my minions for removal. Makes my deck very threat heavy.
Nothing unique. But, definitely my own deck. Just climbed to rank 4 with it, so it's not bad for a homebrew.
I am playing a dragon control warrior I built myself.
Does that qualify as original? Or just a netdeck.
It does feel pretty strong. But then all I have been playing is control warrior.
I actually don't think my record against the deck even with my control warrior deck is that terrible. As folks have pointed out, sometimes they just don't get the nuts. That being said, I think I have faced a lot of folks not really playing the deck patiently enough in the 8-5 rank where I've been most of the season.
I do sigh when I que one up, but it's not unwinnable. And I can always tech in a BGH if it gets to be too annoying.
I suspect the deck is fine. Annoying to play against when they draw well though, I'll grant you that. But, when they burn their conjurer's calling with book of spectors it gives me a nice smile.
Why would you assume it's about you?
Sometimes people need time to think. Some people just always rope. Sometimes there's a technical problem. Sometimes people need to grab a drink.
There's no reason to take it personally -- especially if it is intended that way. Just let it go.
It was for like 10 turns in a row. Pretty suspicious.
Honestly, only against control Warrior. But i just assume they enjoy long games and wasting time so not sure it counts
I WAS playing my own dragon control warrior deck. Just not sure why that deserves a rope though. He was playing a netdecked token Druid. I can't figure out why my deck is one you'd rope where his was perfectly fine. I don't even have a great win% vs. Token Druid. If they draw/play well I usually struggle. He didn't, I was able to get the board and hold it, but that doens't happen every match.
