    I mean - the set isn't even a week old. As always, the most aggressive decks are usually the first to compete (Pirate and the many variations of rogue). I think once things settle a bit, we will be okay. People need to learn how to play against Quest Rogue, which is a combo deck. And there should be plenty of anti-pirate stuff this setfor midrange and control decks to incorporate.

    Priest is getting some awesome shit. That tutor card is probably OP.

    More like Fun-ja!

    I think it's a good precedent to set though.

    Hopefully the balance changes will make people like HS again... ...but probably not.
  6. Thanks, @Pharaoh Atem!
  7. Does anyone have a good synopsis of the KH story so far? There apparently was a good one floating around but it seems to have been removed from googledocs. Written would be cool - because half of these names all sound the same to me after a certain point.

    Sounds like you may just be hitting the Dragon Priest wall. This is a reductive look at it, and is by no means gospel, but vS suggests: Lower levels: Dragon Priest Bottleneck to Legend: Reno Mage Top Legend: Control Warrior Aggro shaman isn't a good match up, and as you see more, I think it should be expected that dragon priest loses more.

    I'm by no means very good, but if I open a dragon, I nearly always keep it (unless Pirate or Shaman). In particular, I always keep Twilight Drake if it's my only dragon. Your best case scenario 1 through 3 play basically requires 1 dragon, so I don't think it's too crazy.

    I am pleasantly surprised that Stealth Rogue might be a real thing.
  11. Supertype Discussion - Tempo-Based Combo

    I have a feeling that Maly-Kun is a good enough deck to be in/around tier 2. I like it much more than jade druid, which I think has the same problems as Maly-Kun in addition to being ridiculously linear. I think all that's needed is to figure out exactly which removal package to run - mulches, doomsayers, dirty rats, etc. - and what is cut for those things. FWIW, this is what I've been playing since about christmas time. It's not the best, but neither am I I got to like rank 9 with it. Meep.
  12. Supertype Discussion - Highlander

    I have struggled to figure out how you actually win with Reno Mage. There's the obligatory "save all your burn" comments to be made, but I'm not sure how you can realistically rely on that being an option when sometimes you straight up have to use fireball etc. as removal. I suppose you can toy around with Solia+Pyro or more classic Tony-Emperor stuff, but without Warlock's hero power, I wonder if these things are just horribly inconsistent.

    I think organizing by super type will generate the most discussion, precisely because people can talk about FOTM decks and then when they suck we can delete them. Plus, I think talking about the pros/cons of different class versions of the same deck could be useful. For example, there's a lot to talk about as it relates to the different jade and pirate variants at the moment.

    It's funny that the Goons % is so high, since it's almost certainly pirates, and not goons, carrying them.
