The rest aren't that interesting, class cards included.

The first week has/will have way bigger impact - Haunted Creeper is in nearly everything, as are the EvilEggs.

Interesting lists from a recent tourney with a number of top players. Other than ALL THE MIRACLE, the other decks are pretty cool.

The GArgoyle is great for priest decks since it is a heal that triggers cleric and if it is ignored the priest can make it insanely powerful for cheap.

So I log in this morning to find that purchasing the second wing is completely broken. Transaction fails the first time, then says there's one in progress and to wait, then starts saying product is not available.

gargoyle with a PWS can end up force a removal which is kinda nice!

Kills itself with a Soulpriest out? :)

Snark aside, the Gargoyle is junk. What would a priest rather play with 3 mana? Gargoyle? Or Blademaster? Or Dark Cultist? Or Farseer?

It's not even close - Gargoyle is the worst of those by a mile. At 2 mana it'd be an ok card, but not at 3.

The only other card that's even interesting (besides Loethab) in this week's release is Duplicate (for aggro-mages). It's 2 extra Arcane Intellects in that deck basically, and can be played for free with Kirin-Tor Mage.

You might see some Unstable Ghouls in Warrior decks, and Webspinner is fun (but not good).

Evidently the problems with the store are really widespread, may have to just give it some time. *shrug*

Managed to get in eventually.

So far it seems like Heroic Noth and Heigan are nigh-on impossible for me. I managed to kill Heroic Loatheb with a custom Warrior deck (23 attack Frothing dealt the killing blow).

that's what I used. don't click if you don't want spoilers. noth was a 1 shot, didn't try again yet, might just have been lucky, but was rather convincing. heigan I forgot about the top card at first, once I had that and drew one copy, that was enough to overpower him. loatheb tried a standard druid deck at first and when I realized he strongly prefers to attack face with his mininos and spawns a new spore after you kill one, I just build that and killed him right away. top card, the dragon and 3rd from bottom all are pretty amazing I think.

Apparently, there are bots out there that are capable of reaching Legendary.

Meanwhile, I fell back to rank 12. Why do I keep trying? :(

I assume the bots just win through sheer number of games played. Playing 24 hours a day with a rush deck, if they're just slightly above 50% wins they've got a chance of moving all the way up.

Yeh I had a few friends telling me that the easiest way to get Legend is to just have a rush deck (zoo lock, aggro pala, stuff like that) and just roll your face up. You eventually do end up reaching it just cause you play tons of very fast games.

Tried out the new Token-Druid-with-spiders deck that's supposedly all the rage right now, but haven't had much luck getting it to work. Might stick with it a bit see if I can get the hang of it, since it's obviously not the deck that's the problem.

New week, new Naxx nonsense.

The main ones this week are probably Deathlord and Reincarnate.

Going to be lots of Shaman gimmick decks with Reincarnate. (Protip: It's stupidly broken with Sylvanis.)

Deathlord - I'd really, really like to know what the design intention of this thing was. It looks like it's supposed to be anti-zoo, but it goes better IN the zoo decks than against them. :/ A giant 8-HP wall that protects all their small crap and Jugglers is just insane. *sigh*

Anything else interesting to you guys?

Edit: Oops, completely spaced that Spectral Knight is this week too. This guy is a monster, and suddenly the 5-slot is really crowded with good stuff (Drake, Belcher - which has been surprisingly good, Knight, and Loethab - ack!)

You probably haven't seen Sylvanas + Ancestral Spirit + Reincarnate ;)

I think that Deathlord is good for Zoo mirrors, halfway decent in Priest for Inner Fire shenanigans and pretty bad in all other situations.

I had a enemy deathlord pull out a fucking Ragnaros from my deck. That was quite hilarious.
