    125 packs, 8 legends and two of them were golden (Shu'ma and Valdris). Pretty good.

    posted a message on New Neutral Common Card Revealed - Platebreaker

    This card came a little bit too late for standard as Odd Warrior and the best Druid armor cards are gone. This card is needed to stop decks that rely too much on stalling and gaining armor which lead to unnecessarily long and frustrating games. Right now, it only does something against Control Warrior which doesn't gain as much armor as last year so this most likely won't see much play.

    The main problem with it is how Warrior was designed around armor as a class. The Warrior hero power does nothing other than give a little bit of armor. It doesn't impact the board in any way and it doesn't progress you towards winning the game (like Hunter). To compensate for this, they created armor synergy cards for the class. Cards that take that number (armor amount) and do X thing with it. This new tech card is capable of nullifying completely the hero power and all its synergy cards instantly. Warrior doesn't just lose X amount of health. They lose the ability to use many of its class specific cards that are meant to compensate for the weak hero power. That's really bad. Whether or not this kills the class, it certainly targets and hurts it much, much more than any other class in the game. That's not a really fair thing, i'd say.

    Obviously amazing in Galakrond decks. Its viability will depend entirely on how Galakrond decks perform. I'd say, it's at least better than Twin Emperor Vek'lor which provided some good defense for C'Thun decks but not much beyond that. The devastation cards offer a lot more flexibility.

    Oh YES! Finally some reliable healing + removal for Controlock and Handlock! Also, it can go face as well! This is great!

    posted a message on Ladder is the worst state it's been in since Pirate Warrior vs Reno Mage

    I believe they did everything on purpose. Just think about it. What would have happened to Battlegrounds if ladder was perfectly healthy? There was a lot of skepticism about the new mode when it was revealed. People probably wouldn't feel the need to try it. The reception would have been much weaker. So they deliberately found a way to make ladder a terrible experience. One so bad that people would be desperate to play something else to escape from it. It's pretty clear that everyone is unhappy with the current ladder situation and there are lots of people complaining. The fact that they haven't done anything at all says a lot. Huge conspiracy theory but this is the impression this situation left on me.

    posted a message on New Legendary Warrior Hero Card - Galakrond the Unbreakable

    I really like this. Very powerful with Rush minions. Tempo Warrior isn't the best deck at the moment but it isn't weak either. And this will work with that deck really well. It is also good to see a different warrior archetype getting support instead of Control Warrior.

    Seems pretty nice for Tempo Warrior. Reload + Buff + Weapon (potentially) + Extra Attack from Hero Power that can be used for finishing the opponent or removing stuff. Control Warrior doesn't get too much from this but it's not completely unplayable in that deck either. After Dr. Boom leaves, this will fill the gap nicely enough. Though i think Control Warrior will choose the quest instead of this. Really cool card.

    This is cool and a little better than Toxic Reinforcements. If it's going to find a spot in a deck is another story though.

    Seems okay. Maybe it could become a real headache if quest paladin manages to find a way to abuse it. I'm more inclined towards a dragon control deck instead of a tempo one though.

    posted a message on New Legendary Neutral Card - Shu'ma

    Seems too slow for token decks and a board of 1/1s is nothing by turn 7. The body of the minion is also pretty weak. Maybe it could find a slot in quest hunter but, other than that, it seems pretty hopeless.

    posted a message on New Epic Priest Card - Envoy of Lazul

    Seems like a big meme card to me. If Lazul barely sees any play, why would this? Even if you can play it earlier and gain some value from it, most of the time you won't get anything that really helps whatever win condition you have. It's a 2/2 that has a chance (you have to guess correctly) to draw something random from your opponent's hand. Seems unreliable and highly questionable. I'd rather use something more reliable and consistent than this (Shadowy Figure, Grandmummy, EVIL Conscripter). Or any other 2 drop really.

    posted a message on Battlegrounds Balance Changes - 4 New Heroes - 4 Old Heroes Removed

    They should switch the tavern tiers of Rat Pack and Infested Wolf. Rat is ridiculously more powerful than wolf. It's also incredibly annoying how you get randomly punished severely by Rat when it dies last. The damage can go from 2 to 7! The only other minion that does something similar is Replicating Menace but only if the opponent stacks two of those in a single minion.

    posted a message on I can't squelch!

    I don't mind the emotes themselves. What pisses me off is the spamming. It's a really annoying tactic used to make the opposing player lose concentration. But taking off my headphones is enough to prevent that from affecting me. For people struggling with this situation, you should try this. It may help until the patch arrives next week.

    posted a message on New Paladin Card - Nozdormu the Timeless

    Interesting but it's a risky card. It all depends on what your opponent is playing and their hand next turn. You don't want to speed up the late game of other decks. Imagine this against Quest Druid. Doesn't sound like a very good idea to help them with ramping. But at least Nozari can see play now as a comeback in case things go horribly wrong. Maybe...

    Very good. Dragon Warrior will love this. And this is even more support for the taunt synergy cards. A buffed taunt with "Can't be targeted by Spells or Hero Powers" is going to be super annoying to deal with.
