Someone tell me if this was a misplay by me or Zep.
Turn 1 opponent drops a Northshire.
Turn 2 I drop Zep hoping for a silence since I had zero mana. Didn't get one offered.
I've been playing my dragon control warrior and having good success against Quest Shaman. They eventually run out of steam. Eventually. If you can stack enough armor you can win.
I have been playing control warrior, and probably will continue unchanged after the nerf. I can't imagine I'm alone. I say craft away.
I don't mind aggro as long as you can build a deck to beat it. Sometimes Blizz just doesn't give you enough tools to stand up to the onslaught.
Only deck I have right now is control warrior. I don't know whether to dust Dr. Boom or just keep playing him at 9. All the other cards get dusted immediately.
Sadly I spent all my dust crafting the archivist and armagedillo this expansion, so if I dust Boom it'll be doubly wasteful. Kind of put all my eggs in the wrong basket it seems.
I've been a F2P player for well, ever. And I usually find I get by just fine with the dust and gold I accumulate.
This expansion feels different to me. I did open up quite a few packs. Probably 78 packs by now. That is right in line or maybe a bit more than I do most expansions, but I feel like I can't build almost anything. I can build control warrior and that's about it.
It might be that I just overspent my dust last expansion and so I'm suffering a bit this one around. But, it might be that the decks are just really expensive to build this time around.
How has the economy been treating you this time around, and how many packs have you opened to get where you are?
Meh. I have played a ton of Control Warrior and there are plenty of counters if folks want to play them. Hunter can outvalue with that card that shuffles 3 buffed copies and the hunter hero. Rogue can outvalue Warrior with a couple different ways to fill the deck. Shaman can outvalue Warrior with Archivist plus Shudderwock. Pally can crush Warrior with the quest. Kadgar Mage is a bad matchup.
What does that leave? Priest, Warlock, and Druid? And if Warlock or Druid get the nuts you can't beat them either.
I guess Priest can run Nomi if they want to target Warrior.
Just plenty of options out there. It's nothing like the days of Mid-Range Shaman where you really just couldn't counter the deck. Folks just have to decide to play a deck that counters CW if that's all they are seeing.
Lots of good control decks out there in other classes. Warrior, Shaman, and Mage all look to have very strong control decks to my eye.
Basically, the devs didn't think the game needed yet another way to play control. I love Priest and playing control, but I think I can be perfectly happy running a control Shaman or Warrior deck instead.
And I'm not really down on playing Priest either. Some of the combos they are giving the class look pretty spicy.
