The game's pretty darn popular and I feel like enough people here play it, I'm surprised we don't have a topic about this. So here you go, we can talk about different cards and decks, maybe set up some friendly games, whatever.

 

Kobolds & Catacombs is the upcoming expansion! View all the currently revealed cards here!

We do have a topic. But it's in other TCG, because it IS a card game.

EDIT: Rather, we have expansion discussions. Though stuff for HS still goes in OTCG.

So moving this as a hub topic.

Ok, that's fair. We'd have small discussion topics whenever a new adventure/expansion came out but they'd always die out relatively quickly, and I wanted to make a thread for general discussion and other things that could be a bit more long-lasting. Thanks for the sticky.

Making this a sticky was a good move. The game is super popular and having a general discussion in an easy to find place seems right.


Anyway, I picked it up a couple months ago. Wanted to make a C'thun Druid deck since it seemed easy enough to make. I then played a ton until I had something resembling a reasonable deck and have kind of stopped playing. I should probably get back into it at some point, since the game is fun. But, o dear lord, the RNG. Game has too much RNG.
If anyone is willing to trade me a HA Cranidos, HA Snover, HA Burmy and/or Shaymin in Gen 6 I'd be your best friend forever.

The RNG is dumb sometimes, but I like it generally. You get some good, quality shenanigans going on in most games. A lot of the time it spices up a match a bit but doesn't affect the outcome much. That said, I do understand how people get frustrated when a game IS decided by pure RNG. Even then, though, I don't usually mind if something really silly makes me lose. I don't think I've ever been salty about losing to Yogg, for instance, because the guy is too fun to get mad about.

 

But yeah from a strictly competitive point of view, the RNG is something of an issue.

 

On a side note, I hope this discussion being stickied means it will actually stick around. HS discussions always seem to die around here.

So what sort of decks has everyone tried out since Karazhan? I've done Beast Druid, Discard Zoolock, Resurrect Priest, and Dragon Paladin mostly.

 

EDIT: In particular I'm having the most fun with my Dragon Paladin deck. The value of Brann with most of the Battlecries is so good. Currently 12-3 with it.

So I just decided to go buy the Welcome Bundle, it's a great deal with 10 packs for $5 and I actually did get Velen for the random class Legendary, which is one I didn't have so that's nice.

Yeah, the value on that is insane. I kinda wanted Velen too since I have all the rest but ended up getting Jaraxxus, so meh. 10 packs and 400 dust for £4 is still just so good though.

It's a shame there's such a negative stigma about Shaman right now, I'm having lots of fun with a Totem Shaman deck. I never thought I'd be playing Totemic Might unironically, the card's actually super useful now.

Yogg-Saron, Hope's End will now stop casting spells if he is destroyed, silenced, transformed, or returned to the owner's hand.

Blizzard actually did things! Plus, they're all really good changes.

Yogg's could still be kinda good, I think, but I might still DE him for full dust. The Overload thing is unnecessary, I feel. Rockbiter, though, didn't see that coming, but I imagine they did it because of Doomhammer. Tuskarr's still usable (and now he has a higher chance of summoning spell damage, yay Spirit Claws) and the Charge change means those annoying OTK Worgen decks are gone.

 

I like these changes. I don't think anything got overnerfed, it's like they finally learned their lesson from Knife Juggler. 

 

EDIT: Dat text fix on the Abusive Sergeant. So good.

Pretty much fine, but I really really wish they'd just banned Yogg from tournaments instead of nerfing him. I have homework to do now but I'll probably come back later to rant about why.

I'm really glad they didn't ban him from tournaments. I find it incredibly frustrating to lose to Yogg on ladder, especially when ladder is what helps you qualify for the biggest tournament of them all.

I barely play Hunter, so while it's kind of insane to do so since it's still a good card that will continue to be played, I might actually DE my Call of the Wilds too.

 

EDIT: People have been doing the math and the chance for Yogg to remove himself in some fashion isn't nearly as bad as I thought. I wonder if he'll still get played at tournaments. I'm sure at least some people will attempt it.

Hopefully you live in one of the countries Twitch Prime is available in. I ended up just making a new Amazon account for the Prime free trial in order to get mine.

Definitely too rich for my blood, gotta save gold for the next expansion that's getting announced Nov 4th, but this is a pretty neat idea. Probably gonna be nonstop Shamans, though: http://us.battle.net...rawl-10-17-2016

 

EDIT: Yeah, definitely not doing it. You'd need to go about 6 wins to break even, and the rewards are too heavily weighted at the top end for my taste.

I'm well up for Heroic Brawl, I fancy myself to do alright and being an ex-Ygo player I live for swiss formats.

 

As for the predictions, I think it's an awesome way of getting people to interact with the tournament scene. Thijs all the way.
