I just played against a token Druid who played like f***ing dogs*** but still won.

Deck f***ing needs a nerf BAD.

Play paladin with the pyro guy. I literally cannot beat that deck.

LOL nice. See this kind of f***ery RNG I actually like. Yogg was awesome, too. Tess is awesome. It's when they try pretending RNG can be controlled (Animal Companion, Ragnaros, Stonehill Defender) where it gets super dumb.

I can't buy a couple wins in a row right now. I've played about a dozen games over the last three days, split between Mech Hunter, Mech Paladin, and Bomb Warrior, and have negative two stars to show for it.
I was the final Undisputed Champion in UCA history,
however Advokaiser was the Guru Champion!

I can't seem to get wins with Warlock at the moment; magic carpet zoo just seems to be getting edged out of the meta in standard, and evenlock isn't winning in wild.

Interesting point though: I just saw Proud Defender and Sunreaver Warmage in a wild Jade Druid (I lost). I think it might have only had like...two or three Jade cards and everything else was just hard control and armour gain.

Pretty interesting analysis:

tl;dr, new set is really popular based on number of games being posted to HSReplay. New cards are really popular, being currently used more than the classic set. Also, post-rotation hasn't really revitalized Rhastakan's Rumble.

Not too surprising compared to last rotation because we knew how much power was concentrated in the 2017 sets. Plus they also got rid of the two strongest cards from the entire 2018 card set.

It is surprising and interesting that Rumble is still kind of a dud.
DPOblivion was far more determined than me.
It's definitely surprising the number of Rise of Shadows cards being used.

Outpacing the classic set is like...a thing that basically doesn't happen, and often implies the power level is too high, but Rise of Shadows cards are also mostly specialized enough that they don't fit into every archetype, they're just good in their own archetype.

So I was playing my Maly Rogue and was facing down a huge board with lethal on it vs a Bomb Warrior, so I needed to yolo Togwaggle->Prep->Wondrous Wand for Malygos and one more burn card.

First card Sinister Strike
Second Card Blink Fox
Third Card Bomb (doesn't kill me though)
Real Third Card Malygos

I briefly get really excited, until I realize that Malygos costs 9-mana. So that's a mechanic to keep in mind.

Got a friend request from a Bomb Warrior, he wanted to complain about how I burned two of his bombs because my hand was full and how lucky it was that those were the only two cards that I burned. He conceded while I was at 6 health, so it won me the game. I guess he forgot that my hand was full when he put the bombs in my deck to begin with, that I only had five and three total cards left in my deck when they were burned so the odds weren't even that bad, and that I burned two other cards as well.
When someone is giving you his opinion, you should receive it with deep gratitude even though it is worthless.
Huh? Finger!? What the hell?
