So how can I go about signing up for tournaments and all that?
After playing for a while I now finally have everything where I can build multiple fully built decks and want to try taking it a little further. I've google'd it but it didn't help out too much. If you could give me a basic rundown? I could try and find the rest of the information I just need to know where to start.

Yeah they are 2 Montreal boys.  Luffy was also on the Gears of War team Fear.  Luffy is one of the funniest people I know.

Also turns out I did land in the money.  Hit top 32 and made $50.  My eSports career is taking off.

 

I'm definitely loving Hearhstone right now.  After the initial C'Thun/Yogg hype started to die down aggro really took over the ladder for a couple of days.  But now that other decks are becoming more refined I'm finding I'm facing a lot more mid-range/control decks as well.  As people figure out more powerful card combinations the meta will continue to shift.

Also I've been playing Tempo Warrior since the tournament.  I was absolutely crushing everything for a while but I'm running into more Control Warrior now which is proving to be a tougher match-up.

Not sure if I said this on this board yet but IMO Tuskar Totemic is this format's Knife Juggler.  50% chance to put you way ahead with no real drawback.

GJ Matt. Good result, good experience. You will only get better results in time.

I wish I could get into constructed but ladder is so boring and I dont enter tournaments so I dont really get to see more interesting decks.

I still feel the ladder meta will degenerate into the typical RPS garbage, because it always does. Aggro starts winning, then people build anti-aggro control decks with a shit ton of board clears, then traditional control decks start beating the anti-aggro control decks, then aggro makes a comeback because it beats control, rinse, repeat

My buddy philtor210 from san antonio is there but i think he already dropped. ^it's this weekend 

 

On an unrelated note, I'm really enjoying Hearthstone rn. People bitch about a stale format but there are so many decks being refined it's really fun experimenting and using cards that people haven't considered in awhile

People will always bitch because that's what people do.

early formats are fun. there's still so much to test and tweak. people like to act like everything is already figured out, but that's far from accurate. I do think you can start to identify certain trends that probably aren't going anywhere.

the problem with that now is that the control decks that have good matchups against aggro can very easily also have good matchups against other control decks. n'zoth adds a completely different late game option for control decks that didn't have before that let's you go over the top in control mirrors.

There are a ton of interesting combos and counter-combos in brawl this week.

Although Naturalize+Coldlight is kind of hard to beat.

I was 6-0 with Leper Gnome Mind Blast before I got bored. Gnome over Shadowcaster lets you race the other aggro/burn decks easier.

I don't like bitching about Cardstone but how did nzoth get printed? Is it not limiting design space for future sets? Any more overwhelming deathrattles would just see this card become more disgusting. Sorry but I have to say in my opinion it is the absolute most retarded card this set.

n'zoth paladin seems to have great matchups across the field with the possible exception of miracle.

the nzoth priest deck is designed to hard counter it too cz of the nature of entomb + the shade guy which gives you a lot of resources, to play the grind game with paladin. 

Even to beat other control decks like cwar etc you need to tech in specific cards like justicar (which just so happens to fit the deck and is an overall solid card) or elise 

Then there is the surviving vs fast decks in the early game, as you need to hard draw the doomsayer/ 3 drop and 4 drop if not it can be quite risky.

i rarely have trouble vs aggro decks, and haven't run into much n'zoth priest. i guess priest steal cards help disrupt their n'zoths but priest i found in general has the weakest mass removal among the big 3 control classes right now fighting against control decks which has led to some losses for me.

The only thing I truly dislike about N'Zoth is that he give like 3 different control decks an almost identical endgame. That's kind of boring. Although, Elise did the same thing.

 

It's a totally OP card though. Completely agree.
