they were rather unexciting, along with the others that I had a choice of. that 3 mana 5/5 ape king idiot. but the choice was 2 others that were even worse. figured I'd give him a try, but he was almost always more of a backdraw with his bananas. think I should have picked nat pagle over it, at least that guy can be great if you have him turn 2 or turn 1 with the coin.
the other was gruul, that 7/7 that gets +1+1 on each turn (your own and other). he was decent, but for an 8 drop I don't think he's all that special either. in a lot of games a champion of stormwind is better then that guy.

I'm starting to see way too many Legendaries in normal Play at Gold level... I'm starting to fear Diamond and up.

Yeah, i'm playing 2* Plat atm and it seems as if almost every single deck has a Ysera and a Deathwing now, plus any race appropriate ones (I had 5 Murlock rush decks in a row last night all different people, all with the murloc legendary). /sigh

I'm starting to see more and more in Unranked as well, probably due to my MMR going up over time.
Still managed a 8 win in Arena for a whoppin 240 gold :D

Crafting a Murloc rush set is a good investment. It allows for quick completion of "win X games as class N", and you get a free legendary out of it.

The problem with legendary cards is that they are so strong, that you essentially need to destroy them the round they are played, or you are fucked.

Feels a bit too unbalanced to me and easily leading to a pay-to-win system :\

Meh. They are indeed mighty and all that, but in the end, it's an enormous amount of the power, and itty bitty living space.

I tend to always keep a clear of some sort in my hand until I'm in my last gasps, so that's never really been an issue.

And if he drops another one the next turn, welp, A) he probably doesn't have much on the board left at that point, and B) I've probably build up a bit of a board advantage, so I can either pray for another clear, gang-bang the big bad monster, or just shoot the guy playing.

Honestly, I consider my own Illidan a bait to keep the enemy busy a little while while I build up a serious threat on the side - but there are quite a few basic or common cards that are just as threatening for the same cost (Windfury Harpy comes to mind)

To be fair, the same can be said about quite a few non-legendaries. An unchecked Ragnaros or Deathwing can kill you quickly, but so can a runaway 10/10 Questing Adventurer or Lightspawn.

I feel that compared to other CCGs, each and every minion is a very real threat for its cost, and their destruction is pretty much numero uno on your to-do list, only firing potshots at the enemy hero whenever the board is clear.

It's *way* too easy to get overwhelmed if you leave anything up for more than a couple of turns.

I do agree often, despite legendaryes, the first who leaves the other player with several minions up loses.

Unless you are a mage. Damn op mages.

Played an arena mage twice now, once with 3 flamestrike, another with 3 blizzards and a flamestrike. The number of insane comebacks I managed is STUPID AWESOME.

The Aoe damage of mages is a bit too insane atm. Can wipe out pretty much everything in a couple cards and then swarm you back.

That, and polymorph.
