    posted a message on Casual Ettiquette

    I have been playing casual a lot lately and in my experience i'm facing mostly competitive ladder decks like odd paladin, odd rogue and odd warrior. I also have some meta decks for climbing the ladder so i think the match making is working correctly and placing me against opponents of the same level. I play in casual mostly to test my own deck ideas. Stuff like even hand mage, sticky priest and muncher druid. It's not against any rules to play those meta decks in casual. People use that to farm gold, complete quests and so on. It can be frustrating if you are just looking for some casual fun but nothing can be done about it. It's up to the devs to change anything there.

    posted a message on The odd Gunspire deck
    Quote from Wolfric >>

    I like those creative decks.  From a first glance i think you need only three cards and not the dragon pack. The key card is the loose Specimen so i would run a more classic odd warrior with gunspire + 2 Loose Specimen. The good thing is that you can play them as a strong 5 mana body too which fits the deck and in case of Oonstada it would be droped for free if you like. Of couse i would run double recless flurry.

     Thanks for the feedback! I didn't think about using Oondasta or any beast package because they would get in the way of the discounts for Loose Specimen. But maybe you are right. With that approach the deck won't be so passive and we could get some serious pressure on the board. The main problem i see is that we need to play all of our beasts before we can ensure we get the discounts on the correct card and since Oondasta pulls beasts from your hand, it could become a little troublesome. But this may be the correct way of doing things. Instead of being so obsessive about this combo, i should only do it when the situation fits and instead go for a more board focused strategy for winning. Currently i don't have Oondasta or a second copy of Loose Specimen but i was already considering crafting Oondasta for some other decks i have in my mind. Maybe this is the push i needed for crafting him!

    Hello everyone! I was experimenting today with a Blackhowl Gunspire combo in an odd dragon warrior deck. The idea was just to test the consistency of the combo. So far, i think it's too slow and clunky. I posted the deck here on the site and wanted some opinions. I explained everything in the deck page.

    I find it funny that people play this guy in such automatic mode that they end up forgetting that his battlecry doesn't affect mechs. One guy learned that the hard way against me yesterday when he tried to use this card to clear my Mulchmuncher. He was apparently a little surprised as he took some time hovering over both minions to understand what went wrong.

    posted a message on First Time Wild: Bundle Pack - rating legendaries

    I could also use some advice. I opened Varian Wrynn, Vol'jin (i'll keep), Wrathion and Blingtron 3000. I'm almost certain that it's not worth keeping Blingtron just because of his synergy with Twig of the World Tree and there are plenty of other anti-weapon tech cards out there already. But i'm uncertain about Varian and Wrathion as those cards seem to be pretty cool in certain decks (big warrior, dragon decks). Any thoughts?

    Bonemare. One of my favorite cards. It won me so many games even after it was nerfed. I'll miss The Lich King as well. But i'm happy that the rotation is coming soon.

    What is the purpose of Forest Guide? Just draw cards? Mill the opponent? Doesn't he make Oaken Summons worse?

    posted a message on Thoughts on the Upcoming Hall Of Fame Roation?

    I don't see the point of HoF Preparation. Yes, the card is very powerful and it may limit design space for new Rogue spells as they always have to take this card in consideration when creating them. However, even if they HoF it, there's nothing they can do about the balancing of the spells as Prep will still exist. Wild is a thing, you know? And people play there a lot. If they HoF Prep and start releasing new cards that are not balanced around it, they won't be a problem in standard but wild will become a nightmare because those new spells will become absurdly powerful with Prep in wild. People will complain a lot and they may lose long time players because of it. It will be a huge headache for them. So there's no point in moving it to the HoF. They need to either rebalance or redesign the card.

    I was expecting that would be the case. This card is really good. I did an arena run one of these days and drafted two of these. And they did an amazing job in clearing minions and helped with face damage as well. Really incredible. Thanks for the answer!

    A much worse Zola the Gorgon. The best use for this card is with minions that decrease their cost when a certain condition is met (Happy Ghoul, Arcane Tyrant, Corridor Creeper). So far, one of the more interesting things you can do with this is to play it on a treant deck with Mulchmuncher. When the muncher is discounted enough to cost 0 mana, you can play the muncher, play Splintergraft to get a 10/10 copy and you will be able to play the 10/10 copy immediately or later as the cost decrease is based on the number of treants that died this game. Then you can create further copies of the 10/10 muncher with Ixlid, Fungal Lord or Gloop Sprayer. Maybe after the rotation we will see more of this card or this particular combination.

    Quote from Grimestreet >>

    Does anybody know if the copies of Omega Agent also keep their buffs if it's hand-buffed?

     Yes, it does. I was playing around with Hir'eek and Omega Agent yesterday to see if i could find some use for them. I made a control warlock deck that uses these two as alternate win conditions or as a way to pressure the opponent. It is okay but we need more support for this kind of strategy before it becomes truly viable for ladder. I made a comment about how this Hir'eek was a pointless legendary in this thread but if given the right amount of support it could become a powerhouse. For now, it's fun to mess around with it.

    I was wondering... What happens if you overkill a minion with its last charge then equip another weapon? Will you be able to attack again? Because it says: Overkill: You may attack again. Makes sense, right? Did anyone try that?

    It requires that you spend at least 15 mana with spells before it even becomes usable. Seems way too slow. Zilliax can do the same job (albeit a lot weaker) for way less mana. You could even get the exact same healing for 9 mana if you buff Zilliax with Blessing of Kings. Too much effort required to get this minion to work.

    posted a message on New Rogue Minion - Spirit of the Shark

    Anything that triggers minions effects twice can be really powerful and this works for two different types of effects. But 4 mana 0/3 on a class that relies a lot on tempo plays is a bit hard to swallow. But i still think this has a lot of potential. Let's wait and see.

    Good for Quest Hunter. Good with Toxmonger. Good for Scavenging Hyena. Good as a cheap finisher for weakened minions. Many pros, no cons. I like it.
