  1. Ok. This is going to be used as the Discussion QC thread for the Jan 1st format...         Question#1: Do I have to Re-write the Entire Thread? - Most decks didn't change much or at all (with the exception of Dragon), so a major re-write isn't necessary for many deck threads, but updates and corrections are! Use common sense in this regard. Examples of questions you should ask yourself: Prophecy only has 1 Fate and Magician of Faith now. How does this change the deck? Were new Bujin cards released? Has anything changed in Infernity? Address this stuff.      Question #2: Which Decks Warrant Threads? - As with last time, I think we'll permit more threads than are actually considered "competitive." This, of course, is subject to reason. If you have a question about it, ask a question here before you waste all the time working on it. New themes probably warrant threads if for no other purpose than to act as a general awareness thread. Again, as with last time, we will pin those decks that are most competitive and garner the most discussion.     Question #3: How Do I Make a Thread? - This will be something new. Post your potential Deck Discussion in this forum [FORUM not thread]. There, others can offer discussion and comment about the QUALITY of the OP, not about how the deck plays or any theory-oh related to the deck.      Question #4: How Regularly Should I Update the Discussion Thread? - I would like to try to update threads once a month. We got away from this last time because the format was almost instantly a mono-deck format, and updates weren't often necessary. What updates are needed will be addressed in a thread posted at the necessary time. At the very least, try to include decks that top YCS and ACS at the bottom of the OP.     Question #5: Who is Responsible for Updates? - YOU, ya lazy magoo. Some others and I will try to help as we can, but the bulk of the job should be yours. It's your baby. Love it well.      Question #6: Will My Shitty Dark Scorpion Thread be Archived? - Yes. If your thread doesn't have any discussion for about a month, it will be archived. If it has 2 pages of discussion in 2 months, or is similarly unvaluable, it will be archived. Hopefully, we can separate a lot of chaff from the wheat in this forum before we get to that point.      Question #7: How Do I Get Started? - First, look at the forum. Has anyone else already started work on the thread you wanted to write? If so, don't redouble that effort. Second, look in this thread. Has anyone already talked about working on a thread? If so, contact them, check the status of that thread. If they abandoned it, have at it! If they are working on it, ask if they'd like help.          ...Have at it, people!
  2. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    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.
  4. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    More like Fun-ja!
  5. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    I think it's a good precedent to set though.
  6. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    Hopefully the balance changes will make people like HS again... ...but probably not.
  7. Thanks, @Pharaoh Atem!
  8. 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.
  9. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    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.
  10. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    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.
  11. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    I am pleasantly surprised that Stealth Rogue might be a real thing.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    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.
  15. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

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

    Pirate is super annoying, but I feel like it may just be one of those decks that's thriving because everything is still new. Murloc Buffadin has been one of the most fun decks that I've played with thus far.
  17. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    I got 32 packs back thanks from the glitch. I totally noticed it though. I had like 5 golden grimy goons 2/4 guy. This is super early yet, but I am sort of worried that Miracle Idol Druid is going to push a lot of decks out of the metagame. I've only beaten it when playing a face or curve deck. Truth be told, those decks beat it fairly easily. It just has so much ramp and cycle. Anything a bit slow seems to get really punished.
  18. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    I know this meta game is junk right now, but I am having a lot of fun playing Y'shaarj Druid. Recently beat Purple on ladder. He was playing a more standard Druid.
  19. Heroic Tavern Brawl

    OMG BUT 1000 gold!?!?!
  20. Heroic Tavern Brawl

    Golden Lorewalker! Hell yes!
  21. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    I think it will actually end up being a pretty strong mechanic, especially with the amount of redundancy and minions like Dispatch Kodo that are designed to synergize perfectly with the mechanic.

  23. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    Yeah - pavel had some godlike RNG the whole tournament. The new set looks really legit. I was going to list the ones I liked, and then realized that I liked most the cards shown so far.
  24. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    Beat Thijs this morning. Not sure what he was playing, but it was a really bad paladin deck. Menagerie maybe?
