Ah I see. It depends on so much RNG that I still don't think the extra 2-4 hand cards are likely to save you from aggro OR control, but I suppose time will tell.

How would Stampede work for a draw engine? Maybe I'm misunderstanding you.

Tol'vir Warden sure. It's a turn 4-5 card but might be strong enough to stick.

I've been whining and bitching about the Starving Buzzard nerf for a long time. The only way I can use Buzzard or Cult Master is to wait until turn 6+. And it wouldn't even be that bad waiting until turn 6 or 7 since that's when I'm usually in dire need of cards but the minions I'm playing to draw the cards just aren't worth it unless I have a decent board. It's usually Buzzard + Alley Cat or Cult Master + Unleash the Hounds.

Hunter is just doomed to never have card draw. Stampede is pretty dope though. Filled up my board on turn 5 playing that shit. Filled it with mostly worthless shit, but still, lol.

Does it actually suck vs Pirates, or are there just not enough pirates out there right now?

Because Patches is still the most broken card in the game right now.

One of the reasons why that Quest Rogue deck works so well is that after the quest is activated you can launch Southsea Deckhand and do 10 damage to face with Patches. Absolutely filthy.

I will say that playing Hunter has been eye-opening. Maybe it's just that using the quest in a deck makes it worse than usual, but I can play pretty much ANYTHING in casual and still get a reasonable amount of wins. Even garbage quest decks, 100% class cards, etc.

With Hunter and the quest card, even with a lower number of 1-drops, I'm winning something like 1 out of 10.

So I just used Quest Rogue and goddamn that was fun. Won 5/5 games but I'm certain it's because it's day 1. How do you stop other decks from just rushing your ass down?

Maybe I'm just too focused on doing the quest immediately. But since everyone is playing like an idiot, I can't effectively practice the deck.

It really doesn't seem that hard to go off if you draw right.

I was putting pressure on as a hunter but then turn four the rogue goes:

Novice engineer - Novice engineer - shadowstep - novice - shadowstep - novice (quest clear in one turn) - prep - evis (dead misha) - coin - 2/1 pirate charger (kills my 3/2) - patches + dagger attack (kills my 2/2)

Broke.

On the bright side I golakka'd a pirate against some other guy and they insta-conceded so that's a good an end to a night as any.

It's weird to me that Karazhan cards are still usable in standard since you can't buy them oir their adventures at all anymore, even with real money.

*edit* I'm dumb, I forgot adventures are on a different tab of the shop. >_< I wonder if the $20 is worth it.

You have to clear them at all costs especially the fuel generating minions like Novice Engineer. And keep the big removals ready for the Violet Teacher.

I mean, the rogue player has no need to expose his minions on board, if played reasonably well the only thing that interacts with completing the quest is dirty rat. Keeping the board clear is good to minimize the swing when they activate their quest but it shouldn't really slow them down.

If I play my novice engineer and leave it on the board it's because I don't care if you kill it. It's not my focus.

In any aggro deck patches it dumb. It says it all that druid is running the corsair guy just for it, zoo has done it too. It's still worth for that upside.

2nd expansion (patch, update whatever) in a row that I've not gotten any legendaries. Really fucks my f2p focus up. Now I have to wait and see which deck starts to do well and try to make cards for it. Only got the druid quest.

Now I have to decide if I want to invest in druid decks or craft shaman or hunter cards (since I've been concentrating on those two for a while).

From my 50 pre-order pack I got the Shaman legendary and the Rogue quest. Not bad, as I was waiting to see what cards I get before trying out any decks.

Gonna open 30 packs I bought with gold now...

EDIT: Got the Druid and Paladin legendary cards in those packs.

I was thinking maybe sub in Far Sight, and actually take out Tidecaller.

Here is what I have been running again:

Maybe I'll just ride this deck as is for a good 50ish games, and see if anything comes to mind.

Interesting list. How are you liking Tar Creeper?

I'm running this atm:

Playing troll quest priest with double Mind vision. It is fun enough but this expansion is going to descend into a giant bag of dicks very quickly.

Oh oh just checked and I gave that quest a 1. Ended up being the first card I crafted.
