Bleh, just lost a game in Arena because I'm rusty and assumed mechanics would operate slightly differently.

Opponent had the mech 2/6 taunt out that gets +2 attack when there's nothing else on his side so it was a 4/6
I used Kooky Chemist to swap attack/health
I thought it would change to an 8/2 (or worst case 6/4)
It actually changed to an 8/4

Like it being a 6/4 post swap I get. But 8/4? Why does the +2 attack get applied again. Like if it was going to get applied again surely it should have gone 8/2 not 8/4

It swaps to 6/4 as its new base stats.

And then your opponent only has one creature in play, so it gets +2 attack bringing it up to 8/4.

(This isn't even the weirdest interaction like this. Let's say you have a 1/1 that's pumped to a 2/2 by Stormwind Champion. If you swap its attack and health, then its new base stats get snapshotted at 2/2, and then Stormwind Champion makes it into a 3/3).

Also the hell is this bug. Doesn't matter what screen I click to, stays blurred like this

Hate that bug. Just restart the client, but yeah, they really need to fix that.

So...there was a bug where a few people opened Zayle from a pack (which was supposed to be impossible, and also a waste when you get it for beating the singleplayer).

Blizzard gave affected people a free legendary and removed the Zayle:

EDIT: oh also, since I know people were discussing this one and not sure, but more arms from extra arms will also cost 2:

Any cheap deck suggestions?

Cheap decks right now are like...

Midrange Hunter
Token Druid
Silence Priest
Murloc Shaman
Mech Paladin
Zoo Warlock
Surprisingly some builds of resurrect/wall priest (mass resurrection is a rare, mass hysteria is rare, and a lot of cards like witchwood grizzly and damage stegotron are rare or common)
Some builds of Chef Nomi Priest
Probably some Rogue decks, but nobody's sure what Rogue decks are going to look like post nerf.

I dont think murloc shaman is cheap. Recent versions of the deck I've seen run a pretty heavy epic package and a bunch of legendaries now.

Decided to disenchant my Preps and Raiding Parties so I could craft Kandor's Endless Army, which was the last piece I needed to play Kibler's Handbuff Mech Paladin. Ended up going 8-1 in the limited time I had, then used the 100 gold to buy one pack, and it was a doozy...

Post-nerf Hearthstone is treating me pretty well right now.

My Shaman deck is a little lacking in variety.

When someone is giving you his opinion, you should receive it with deep gratitude even though it is worthless.

Reckless Experimenter is going to get nerfed along with the mech update to get a restriction like Summoning Portal (cost can’t be reduced below 1).

It will include the full disenchant value for the two weeks after the update.
