    Nice - I completed my first run thanks to just one card.
    The Kadoom Bot bomb card that deals 50 when drawn. THat card is OP! Lol!

    The second run was awesome too. I got Archmage Antonidas for 5 mana (with the treasure card) and added 3 more copies of him at the barkeeper. Then sat there and Fireballed away every boss opponent. :-)
    Glorious! :-D

     Okay fine, I'll bite. Explain to me how face decks are interactive. because just moving your mouse from point a to b is not interactive. Interactive means you interact with different elements on the board, like making value trades, baiting your opponent into certain secrets, playing around secrests yourself, (value)trades etc. Hitting the face is just that, hitting the face. It requires zero thought aside from having to clear e.g. taunt minions in the most efficient way. if that's your idea of having an interactive game, by all means I won't judge you. But in general I doubt a lot of people will agree.

    Simlpy put, because anyone who knows how a face deck really works understands that there is immensely more depth to a game than "drag minion/hero to face; repeat". You continually have to assess the board state, what resources you have available, when to play which cards and at what time, whether to force your opponent to react to pressure or to lull them into a false sense of security by holding back cards to spring a burst lethal. And even more so against decks like Tempo Rogue where knowing exactly when to break the opponent's Waggle Pick is crucial, or against Big Book Mage, having a plan to deal with giants when they appear (or determine the risk/reward of ignoring it). Otherwise you pretty much concede the game if you don't follow these interactive considerations carefully.

    People who think a face-deck is just "play my cards and look to only ever go face unless there is a taunt" are usually the same people who try the deck out themselves, find they end up losing heavily because they don't really understand the interactivity of the deck and how it should be played, then they whine about how uninteractive it is when they see someone else play it against them and win. 

    A truly uninteractive deck (taking a small aside for the off-topic nature of that question) would be something like the original Quest Mage (or to a smaller extent, Quest Paladin), where you literally shut down the opponent's ability to do anything with badly designed cards that give unremovable immunity while you sit back and play your own game. When your opponent literally has no option on there turn other than do nothing and wait, that is true uninteractive game play. Face Decks are the polar opposite to that.

    Now, with this new knowledge to hand, you'd have to really acknowledge that Face Decks prompt more interactivty with the opponent than most other decks, since you are forcing the opponent to respond to what you are doing and not ignore you. That's what real interactivity is.

    If you're bored... ...play a face deck??? dumbest solution I've ever heard..

     Nobody is forcing you to have fun. Feel free to go and continue to be bored by not playing the deck. Lol!
    That had to be the most pointlessly aggro comment I've read in some time, which is ironic since you seem to hate aggro decks so much. XD

     I am no fan of aggro (to play) but I don't hate it no. I just don't see what the fun is in smashing the face without thinking about any aspect of the game. Att least with aggro you stiil have to make value trades and think about every move. How people consider facedecks to be fun and interactive is absolutely beyond me. When I want to have fun in Hearthstone I usually play a meme deck or something that is interactive.

     Your idea of fun is subjective. Not everyone has the same experience of fun with a deck as others do. 
    Some people like to win games quickly. Some like to beat an opponent down before they start using irritating mechanics like Lackeys and Waggle Picks, or Mechs and Bombs. 
    Just because you don't find decks that are fast and win quickly and efficiently to be fun doesn't mean that nobody else can or should be allowed to. 
    Face decks are one of the most interactive types of deck in the game, in any case. There is nothing more interactive than direct interaction with the opponent's face, rather than messing about with silly combos or boring control decks that do nothing for 45 minutes and let you lose by fatigue. 
    How anyone is able to even claim they think Face decks are uninteractive is hilarious at best. :-D

     "Face decks are one of the most interactive types of deck in the game, in any case. There is nothing more interactive than direct interaction with the opponent's face,"

    This is by far the most hilarious thing I've ever read on Hearthpwn xD

     I guess you don't read much then. Would explain your lack of knowledge about Hearthstone, really. Lol

    You don't think Face Decks are interactive. You lost the game and your opinion is invalid. XD

     Lol, ok now I know you're a troll. Well played

    I have a dragon shudderwok deck that you could try as well. Does very well staying alive and out-valuing your opponent until victory.

    Dragonwok Control Shaman
    Export to BBCode Export to Cockatrice Export to MarkDown Export to Html Clone this deck
    Minion (23) Ability (6) Playable Hero (1)
    Loading Collection

     I gave this a try, and tried to make it work, but it was just too slow for every deck I came up against. It struggles to survive against any aggro deck, and Rogue Tempo overwhelms it.

    I liked the idea though.

    I'm assuming you concede when you get really piss poor card draw because this deck is a one trick pony. The deck is great when you get the correct card flow synergy, otherwise it is possible that it turns into a stretch of unusable cards that don't really benefit each other which ultimately blows.

     No, the only time I ever concede is half way through a match with a Control Warrior (when you can tell at that point if you will win or not).
    Otherwise, the best thing about a one-trick pony is consistency and this deck is consistent enough for its one trick to be good enough for the deck. Some of the best decks in Hearthstone are the one-trick ponies that  do their one trick well enough and succeed with it repeatedly. Why do you think decks like Mecathun Druid / Warlock and things like that were so good? 
    And the fact that the deck is low-costed means that there are  rarely ever bad hands to start with (unless you get something like three 5 or 6 mana cards), etc. Even then, though, there is enough to get you back in the game for most match ups.

    So, no, unless you're just not very good with this type of deck, then I would say you should virtually never concede as you will usually win most games (positive win rate is what it's all about, hey?)

    And I know this can be the case from experience - for example, Tempo Rogue is considered a really good deck right now. However I've tried it numerous times and I can scarcely manage to get a win from it, so it's obviously a deck I don't know how to use properly yet and need more practice. That doesn't mean I think the deck is bad. 

     Yes, I'm so terrible with this deck that I'm able to draw both Upgrade Cards and none of my weapons.  By all means, keep telling me how bad I am. 

     That.... wasn't what I said.... like, at all...

    So... You make a post essentially lambasting other forum users for talking about things that matter to them, all while also complaining that nobody is entartaining your similarly pointless thread.
    Not here to make friends, I assume...? Especially when you freely admit that seing people upset about something is somehow amusing to you.

    First impression, bad deck. You should focus on what your goal is with your deck building. You want to SMOrc opponent down, don't play ooze. It is useless.
    Two Militia Commander  please, it is so core. and the Darius Crowley. Not a fan of the Elite (4 mana 4/3 charge), just run Grommash. Play some bomb cards and run the 7 mana doctor bomb (summon 2 x bombbots with bombs in enemy deck). This card is awesome in SMOrcing.

    Sul'raze is useless. Cut it down with the new bomb weapon please.

    Put one warpath in this deck, for the potential Berserker burst.

    And, 1-2 battle rage for card resources please.

     I don't think you understand what his deck is trying to do and which decks it is trying to counter.

     

    Couldn't have said it much better myself. ^_^

    posted a message on How much damage in one turn have you done?
    Quote from scrfix >>
    Quote from scorpyon >>

     I forget the amount, but it was something in the region of 2.3 billion...

     Are you for real or are you joking?   If you are for real oh, wow, how did you accomplish this? I know that I have flipped the damage for Gahzrilla but I forget how much damage it goes to before it flips back to one.

     Heh! Well it was for real in a real ranked game, but I had help from my opponent who thankfully figured out what I was doing and joined in. Otherwise it would probably be impossible, lol. The figure was actually more like 2.1 billion (or near that - because if you carry on further than this, it will destroy the minion... and posssibly the universe, who knows...? :-P).
    It was through Lorewalker Cho, Divine Spirits and an Inner Fire to end it. Taking it in turns to multi-cast DS on Cho (with some help from Shadow Visions to get more).

    I met someone basically playing my deck today - but he'd added in bombs to the mix which made it feel very weird. It was a lot slower than this one (and if I wasn't playing a janky Plot Twist Warlock, I don't know if it would have been that effective). 
    Was a nice twist though. :-)
