    posted a message on Honestly I don't understand why people play this game anymore.

    Ive been there OP. I would exclusively make my own decks and get pissed off when I lose to netdeckers. I ended up hating the game and quick for 2 years. Recently came back and have mostly enjoyed it. Wild is a my preferred format because I have most of the older cards, but it is so toxic right now with flamewaker mage and big priest being majority of opponents that I'm taking a break with standard and arena.

    I actually got to legend for the first time after my return, and hit it on both accounts 3 months straight. I don't use netdecks still, some of my decks are very close, but either because im missing a few cards or I am teching against what I see mostly I have made some changes and they have worked pretty well. I am having a much better time, even when I do try to make something obscure like Reno Keleseth minion based priest deck or miracle beast hunter work.

    you can also take advantage of some of the netdeckers. I lot of people playing t1 decks in my games have seriously misplayed with hunter, paladin and secret mage by only going face before they eventually lose the board and the game. Occassionally they are rewarded for that playstyle, but I am mostly able to turn those games and win.

    One of my biggest issues besides flamewaker mage is the bots i see a lot of time on ranked ladder. those mother fuckers that just hero power and rope every turn for free exp are excruciating. sure, they are free wins, but in the time it takes to deal with that I would have played and possible won multiple games.  I've seen those things at D3 before. they are not only getting free exp, but also free wins which is bullshit, and there is no way to report it ingame so they will continue to do it. At least the old pirate warrior bots you had a chance to lose, but if you lost it was only turn 5 anyways and games were only 2-3 minutes. these take like 10+ minutes against odd warrior bot that drops a taunt and hero power every turn..

    Quote from TheThreadWeaver >>

    What are you playing, OP? Could be warlock's just a bad matchup for your deck.

     rogue and midrange shaman. very hard to outvalue them in the midgame and they have so much removal and heal you cant slowly chip them down. with rogue im forced to try and get a big combo alex turn to kill them, but usually they are too much health or just burn my deck. once they play the inevitable turn 7 soulsciologist for 23/23 worth of stats its basically impossible to retake the board.

     

    i suppose hunter could be aggressive enough, but they dont have much reach outside quick shot and rhino once they eventually lose the board to all the early removal.

    briefly tested out paladin, but that stood no chance without dealling 10+ damage a turn with crabrider.

    lol

     im actually serious. their 1 weakness was paladins just killing them by turn 6 but they lost most of their early game. over 74% of my games since nerfs are mage and warlock

    all i see is mage and warlock now, and warlock seems to have removal every single turn without ever tapping. think im like 0-18 against them now..

    posted a message on Primordial Studies - Discover Rate OP?

    there just arent a lot of mage spell damage minions right now so the chance of getting it is very high. discover always shows class cards at a much higher percentage than neutral too

    Forgot to mention, fel reaver saw tons of play and it exactly did this, mill your own deck. 

     

    fel reaver saw play in aggro decks, not control decks. the strength of a control deck is card advantage and removal. aggro doesnt care about that when it hits you in the face for 8 damage

    posted a message on Less nerfing, more learning people.

    yes, i need to learn how to not have hysteria wipe my entire board before it touches opponents minions, or how to have the 4th devolving missiles of the game not completely wreck me so my opponent who drew his entire deck for basically 0 mana gets a free win. some cards are inherently too powerful. crabrider is one of them and I use him in all my decks.

    posted a message on Is Paladin best class in standard right now?
    Quote from FortyDust >>

    Yes, Paladin is by far the strongest class in Standard, with no fewer than three separate archetypes in the top two tiers.

    Any reasonable list you throw together will have a good chance of winning, as long as it contains Sword of the Fallen, Hand of A'dal, Crabrider and a few secrets. The Libram package appears in one of the three, but the strongest archetype skips Librams in favor of more secrets plus Kazakus, Golem Shaper.

     in a deck with crabrider, how would you rate Kazakus vs Cariel Roame and Blessing of kings? blessing of authority could replace kings, but it feels a little slower, at least in the version I am running because i dont have second Naaru or Kazakus, but i do have some dust to spend.

    I wouldnt be surprised if crabrider ends up on the nerf list, but as long as hysteria and devolving missiles are on it too im fine.

    i dont think hearthstone has ever allowed you to share cards

     it's been allowing it for probably more than a year now

     for reals? wow, thats crazy. i recently came back from over a year break. i guess hearthstone has become a lot more new player friendly than it was when i quit. can you only borrow cards for specific modes?

    The discussion of paladin having the best drops in standard was already in progress though. No point in making a rethread even if its slightly out of date

     slightly? lol 

     

    its not even remotely relevant. the only card on that list still in standard is tyrion and it doesnt even see play. hell, only 2 of those even see play in wild now, so no, its not even the same thread.  when that thread was made standard and wild didnt even exist yet. and I was merely asking if paladin is the strongest class in standard because i have not only recently returned to the game, but play pretty much only wild and arena these days.

    Mana Tide draws 2 cards, +1 overload. Shaman needs THAT much of a push.

    All Caravans getting a buff is a must, as are some buildaround cards for new archetypes that have potential but cant compete in this meta. Taunt Druid, Hero Power Mage, any non-face Hunter stuff, Deathrattle DH all come to mind.

     no thank you. would be way too powerful in aggro shaman
