It works for commons with a gain of 10 dust per common - for the others it indeed doesn't.
There is an option completely missing here, which is if you have normal copies and enough dust to craft golden copies just to disenchant.
I have normal copies of all of these cards, and don't care about golden cards. However, if I craft all of these cards in golden, and then disenchant them after the refund, I will have a net gain of 16000 dust.
16k is a lot of dust when you don't care about golden cards :)
That's wrong. If you have regular versions and craft golden ones, then disenchant the golden ones, you can only profit off of commons (With a net gain of 10 dust per common). For rares/epics/legendaries you get the same dust as if you just didn't do anything
I updated the chart a little https://www.reddit.com/r/hearthstone/comments/avu3v8/hall_of_fame_decision_flow_chart/
Still doesn't consider people who want to craft golden cards and keep them, though.
Meanwhile Malfurion Roidrage portrays the most unrealistic male body imagineable: purple skin, green hair, his arms might aswell be literal trunks and he has antlers. Don't even get me started on Garrosh, dude is basically a 3 by 3 by 3 meter cube. This is why I hate video games - they appeal to the female fantasy.
At that point you might aswell be running Abusive Sergeant. One of the reasons Cold Blood is strong is that it can turn a small drop into an actual threat and sometimes you even get to cheese 4 or 8 extra damage in the early game.
Try getting your Things from Below / Sea Giants out as early as possible while simulatenously making sure you don't make it easy for your opponent to do so. Also, save Devolves for Flamewreathed Faceless and maybe add a Lich King to your deck, it's a great card in general and from time to time you'll be able to just cheese out wins with Army of the Dead. You're right in that it's mostly a tempo match-up, but there really isn't a whole lot you can change regarding the actual deck.
What makes big priest so obnoxious is the resurrect mechanic, not Barnes. A 1/1 Ragnaros or even a 10/10 Y'shaarj can often be dealt with, but if they are followed by an 8+ mana minion on turn 5, 6, 7 and 8, that becomes pretty problematic.
I've been F2P since I started HS, which was right after the closed beta ended. I end up between rank 5 and 1 (usually I aim for rank 1, since that puts me on rank 5 on the season reset which is exactly where I want to be every month for the free golden epic) and open approximately 81 to 100 packs per expansion. I personally don't feel all that restricted by not paying, since I can usually still craft most of the tier 1/2/3 decks - though that might be a lot easier for me than for others since I pretty much own every single card in the classic set due to how long I've been playing Hearthstone. If you feel like your deck prevents you from reaching the higher ranks, you might wanna focus on getting a single cheap tier 1 deck together - in a way, that could be considered an investment as it might make getting the monthly golden epic (=400 dust) easier.
There are only 9 DKs in Hearthstone. You've been listing hero cards in general and even forgot about the OG himself, Jaraxxus. Your arrogance will be your undoing
