I hate this part of the game... I opened my 8 free packs and got one epic I won't use. I'm tempted to buy a bunch of packs, but last time I did I got nothing but commons and rares. I can't really afford to gamble.

I do have 4.5k dust, though. Is there anything essential I need to buy in terms of neutral epic/legendary cards? Or should I just do what my common sense is telling me to do and muddle through for now and save my dust until everything settles?

If you need to save money, wait for everything to settle. It's too early to tell for a couple weeks.

Yeh, the excitement gets to me.

Plus all my standard decks were ruined by the relegation, so I'll need to go through them and replace. I'll try to do it without spending too much for now.

Thanks.

Haven't encountered Quest Rogue yet but I would wait before I call it broken. I remember people calling Twin Emps broken the few days around release and a few weeks later I saw C'Thun decks cutting it.

Quest mage can be a load of BS and not because it's good but because it relies on high rolling board freezes.

For me the key is flame tongue totem. It really boosts the damage of your cheap elementals early game.

Kalimos is essential to the deck. I've swung a lot of games with him.

I have no idea how Elemental Mage is doing though...

The big difference is that Twin Emps was slow. Those sort of decks, in particular c'thun druid, look strong but were always going to be beat out by the time the faster decks were refined.

Faster decks will always come along, get refined and become dominant.

If there is a faster deck than quest rogue it is time to pack it up.

I've played quite a few of them as a quest/combo priest. It seems very ordinary.

I think 5 would be fine, really doable but not so easy. Last 10 matches, 8 rouges, 7 times quest was ready at turn 4 and one time on turn 3.

Yes this is really fun blizzard...

I had a draw that could have it on turn 2. There wasn't really a point doing it turn 2 and finja later won the game on its own.

Wow, quest Warrior seems really really OP.

So they got rid of Ragnaros, but you now have a deck that can just sit behind tons of taunt minions, and then get another Ragnaros replacement!

68 packs (pre-order plus bonus login packs and gold bought packs), 11 epics, 3 legendaries.

Pretty average but I really don't feel good about that given the massive price hike here. Half the fun with this expansion is supposed to be the quests but it's going to be a slog to get them all.

Taunt warrior is really slow. 2 mana deal 8 randomly kinda sucks when you're dead before then. Its not horrible, its just that quest rogue and pirate warrior dont mind you being Rag lite.

It's one of the very few decks I can play in standard right now. I can't afford to buy packs, and I didn't unpack anything great.

My first new year match was against a time (freeze) mage. It was so annoying having to pop up three ice blocks while not knowing was going to come thanks to the randomness. Thankfully I survived the double turn thanks to that Psycho-Tron elemental.

My bad. I should have specified that I was asking about the dragon elemental priest you mentioned. I'm not sure if I'm skewing too heavily in favor of dragons, right now. Are you basically running just historian, operative, and 1-2 bigger dragons like Ysera, and then loading up on elementals?

Rogue quest will be nerfed in a few weeks. Even pirate is too slow to punish it and no control deck can out-value it. It's more broken than 2-mana Buzzard hunter was.

Man they really went all in on taunts. With lots of taunt minions plus adapt plus the warrior quest it's a taunt party. Definitely slows down the game.

I still would wait a few weeks before making a call for nerfs now. Had no problems with Taunt Warrior against Rogue sofar but that could also be attributed to the players at rank 16.
