synergy picks is only first two picks (you can find a list of cards that can be in 1-2 pick,and most of the time there is 0 synergy between them), and thats it - a lot of people like you have no idea how it works and complaining - atleast synergy pick is truly terrible thing.
"full dragon or elemental" just means they draft good deck its not about synergy picks mechanic.
"Druid and Ultimate Infestation are being watched. Statistically speaking though it's not a huge swing card, it just feels that way emotionally."
that statement really made me laugh so hard, omg Blizzard. just accept the fact, that you fucked up hard on this card
"C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER !!"
Decided that there was some unexplored design space for a secret that re-casts itself under the right conditions, since the effect would only re-occur when a new trigger comes along. It turned out to be quite a tricky design space, but I think I came up with something interesting.
Don't invite Rexxar to your witch hunts, he always gets the wrong idea.
I'm glad none of those made into the expansion. lol
considering how terrible most of these concepts are, I'd say that did a pretty good job on the end result. I mean, this could have been TGT 2.0.
I honestly feel like people aren't giving TEam 5 enough credit for this expansion. So far it's been pretty fun (if you don't get too hung up on Druid dominance or Shadowreaper shenanigans) and I'm still not even halfway through all the decks I want to try in some way (which is already more than I can say for Un'goro which most people praised as the new WotoG)
It's kind of amazing how every Death Knight has actually found some use (some more than others obviously). When compared to the tragedy that was Quests. It turns out decks can be built much more creatively when you aren't being forced to include a bunch of garbage to finish a quest with mediocre rewards (looking at you Lakkari Sacrifice). Meanwhile Frost LIch Jaina is played in control decks that don't even run a single elemental and Garrosh is just being put into control decks without really capitalizing on enrage.
Me personally, I love this expansion and it gives me hope for the future. Maybe, once the old sets that still taint the balance of this game until today (gadgetzan, mainly) have rotated out, the overall balance of the game will finally improve for real. A man can dream
