Haven't met a player Warrior, and Garrosh wasn't much of a threat even on expert.
Armor is nice and all that but in the end, it's nothing but a 2 heal for 2. I'd much rather have almost any other HP.

Meanwhile, Mage still feels like hell to play against, and I've read about a SuiLock deck that looks mighty nice on paper.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Great arena play this morning ^^

Oponent: rogue, 8 health and enough damage on the board to kill me.
Me: 10 mana, 1 card in my hand wich costs 12 mana (one of the giants).

My turn: Pick a card, figuring I lost since there was nothing in my deck that could save me.
I get Tracking, cost 1, pick 3 cards, pick one, discard the others. Kill command, Arcane shot and King Crush.
Legendary Dino ^^ 9 mana, 8/8 attack/health and charge ^^ I win ^^ but that was awfully close :roll:

I had the most beautiful combo ever versus a warrior last night... playing priest, he has 24 life, has me down to 2 life and I have no minions out. I already had a Charge I'd copied from him earlier, a PW:S and 2 Divine Spirits, figure I may as well just get it over with and take my last turn. I draw a Lightspawn... 0/5, damage changes to match health... dear gods, the smile on my face. PW:S takes it to 0/7, Divine Spirit 1 to 0/14, number 2 to 0/28, it's damage switches to match its new health... 28/28 and it has Charge. He had *no* idea what hit him, it was glorious :D

Had a similar one, but with the 1/1 Pally token. it's down to 7/15 with his three mobs that cover 9 damage across them, but no taunter. I could hold a couple turns, but then I draw Blessed Champion (doubles attack).

Pop quizz. what does a 1/1 do when buffed with BoM, BoK, then BC?
Answer: IT HURTS (16 damage actually :-p)

i dont remember exact cards (what happens when i cant sleep at 4am, and decide to play hearthstone)
but playing warlock vs warlock, we were 1 and 3 hp when i drew a dread infernal, and was kinda tempted to see if i could commit suicide and still win, ended up just killing him with it though (this was after sacrificial pacts, a twisting nether, a total of 3 hellfires, and quite a few soul siphons between us lol)

How does this compare to "analogue" ccgs? (Like Magic.)

Bonus points if any of you have tried the awesomeness that is Netrunner and can compare to that.

much simpler then magic, no blocking, nothing you can do on opponents turn. but mostly everything is the same and the good/broken cards/mechanics are pretty easy to spot when you've played mtg for a while.

also, for the matchmaking stuff, I doubt it's meant to compare the cards in your deck. it's probably just using that rank/medal thing. so it's a matchmaking based on a 'bad' ELO rating like magic used to have. if two people each played 100 games, one guy won 80% and the other 20%, they then shouldn't get paired against each other if there's other people in the queue. If you win like 50% of your games, I am sure you can easily get paired against someone winning 70-75% with a 'good' deck.

turn 9 he plays a Al'Akir the Windlord, gives it Rockbiter and attacks me...

i felt so bad watching this gorgeous minion with charge and windfury and divine sheild...instantly get obliterated

Destroying Legendaries the turn they drop is half the pleasure of the game :lol:

I finished Priest training (up to level) - Holy sweet mother of Bajesus that deck is insane!

Ask Worldie for more pointers, but I can't count the number of times I was literraly swimming in cards, with a full smattering of minions on the table. You play *very* aggressively early on, since you can easily heal with your hero power, and if you took care to grab Vodoo doctors and "For Nazjataar" whats-her-name, you minions keep going and going long after they should have reasonably dropped.

If your opponent made the error of letting a Northshire Cleric alive, it can go so far as being forced to discard new drawn cards. I wasn't even AWARE we had a hand size limit before that :lol:

I love playing a defensive version of Priest deck.

I have essentially only taunt minions with lot of health, and healing spells. Force enemy to smash his face into your minions, heal them back and slowly drain him down, taking down stronger minions with SWD cards.

My deck for reference:
Image

Works against everything unless some horrible bad luck with cards.



Mages are nightmare though. I really think their class cards are borderline op, sooooo much aoe dmg. Can wipe up a whole lane of minions with 1 card with no downsides...

Really liking the Priest deck at the moment, been playing it a lot more but I can't imagine playing it without 2 Mind Controls, that has won me so many games, the number of end game Core Hounds I've snatched away with it only to have the opponent immediately conceed is beautiful :)

I've also found Mind Vision can be rather nice, sometimes you get junk but often it's good (and certainly better than the 1 point card you used) and best of all it throws a spanner in your opponents strategy when he suddenly has to deal with a card he can't expect a Priest to have.

On this note, I think there's too many cards on the line of "kill a card without allowing any reaction".
It's cool if some decks include one, but when every single deck has 2+ of those, it kinda feels frustrating to play a strong card just to get it destroyed the turn after.
Atm when I play against rogue or priest I'm "scared" to use my buff cards cause I know they will kill the buffed minion the turn after.

I instead like the cards like the warlock's Corruption, "the minion dies the turn after" which allows you to at least make something out of that card before it's dead.
