Idiot rogue player goes all in on cleef with two other minions out, THEN pops the pick. Cleef of course is not what bounces and he wins, because Hearthstone is not a game of skill. It is a game of luck. You are never punished for bad plays and can just RNG into wins.

Rogues are definitely braindead as f*** this expansion.

On one hand I like that the new set is seeing real play instead of just 2-4 cards getting popped into existing decks. It's really neat.

But Blizzard dropped the ball in a LOT of spots that goes against old reasons for nerfing things. They hate cheating minions out so they gave Mage a f***ing 3 mana spell that gets them 4 giants for 6 mana total. They're just a bad company with no QC.

Speaking of Token Druid, I've been playing and loving Hand Mage but wow Token Druid is not a good matchup for it. Not really even sure what you can do besides hope to discover a bunch of AOE spells.

You make a Mountain Giant and Conjurer's Call into a million 7/8 taunt guys. I have yet to beat that deck because it's f***ing bulls***.

I cut that spell from my hand mage deck >_>

Admittedly I don't have Khadgar which is a key synergy card, but like...

If you don't have a minion in play conjurer's calling is bad.

If you do have a minion in play, there's some minions like Twilight Drake which you really don't want to conjurer's Calling.

It's good with Giant, but giant can sometimes end up sitting in hand and not getting played, particularly if you don't draw book of spectres (which tends to mean Giant costs about 6 mana or so).

It's also good with Voodoo Doll, but I only have one of those in the deck. Even then, that's like a 6 mana assassinate summon two random 3 drops; so basically comparable to Vilespine Slayer.

Like...I see why some people run it. It's a solid card. But I don't think it breaks the game.

Assuming you're running the high minion Book of Spectres variant, and not the spell variant with Blizzard and Flamestrike that uses Arcane Intellect to draw....

Run Doomsayer, run Meteorologist, run Dragonmaw Scorchers, I might consider running Batterhead since it's an on-curve way of countering The Forest's Aid.

But yeah, matchup is rough for the low-spell version, since spells are usually how mages beat tokens.

EDIT: oh, also Rabble Bouncers are very good against token druid. (2/7 taunt that costs 1 less for every enemy minion). Watched a streamer add two of those. Baron Geddon is also an interesting thought. EDIT: also, Mossy Horror might work.

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.


This continued to happen as I switched from deck to deck and found myself dropping from 6 to 9. I then came to terms that I was a bad person, queued up Token Druid, and won twelve of my next fifteen games. Unfortunately I've now stalled just before 5 as I've gone 4-4 in my last eight games and have made zero ground.

Fun!
I was the final Undisputed Champion in UCA history,
however Advokaiser was the Guru Champion!
NPH specialist tournament report:

Apparently Chef Nomi Priest is a serious deck, currently tier 2, and Token Druid has dropped to tier 4 (in this format), cause the specialist format just lets everyone sideboard against it.

Messing around with Chef Nomi Priest in Casual (minus one Lazul's Scheme because I haven't crafted anything for the deck yet).

IDK what the writer was on, cutting a Mass Hysteria. At least, in aggro matchups this makes very little sense; I guess if you are expecting to face mostly warriors due to the tournament setting it's fine. But yeah, run mass hysteria. If you face a control warrior whom you expect to play Saboteur, you can mass hysteria on an empty board to avoid disaster. But yeah, ladder is always aggro happy, so two hysterias make sense.

Deck is hard to pilot as advertised. I'm not sure yet if I like it. TBH, something that's frustrated me before about decks built around gadgetzan auctioneer is that if the auctioneers are the bottom card of your deck you just die. This deck feels a little bit better about it, because you also have pyro+Acolyte of pain, and you can go full northshire. (I once burned six cards on purpose with double northshire circle of healing because I already had Nomi and 2x Seance in my hand). Still though, even with all of that the RNG of drawing vs not drawing Auctioneer is still real.
