Is D5 "dad legend"? Or is it actually legend but super high ranks?

I always thought it was Legend but not high-ranking? I only got into this thread recently so maybe i'm missing some SA in-joke.

The former.

The implication is "it just takes an amount of time to get Legend that dads with jobs and family responsibilities don't typically have, so a dad reaching Diamond 5 is equivalent to getting Legend, so 'Dad Legend'".


edit: ah, the term you may be thinking of is "dumpster legend", but this term has a different definition depending on who you ask

The reward for legend over D5 is only a pack per month too so D5 is the effort/payoff sweet spot for lower frequency constructed play

I am like 400 games deep into Face Hunter and while it's not getting me past Diamond 8 at the moment it's a lot more nuanced that I initially thought. Just keep bashing your head into the wall and it'll click eventually. I have beaten two Priests today and that almost never happens with this deck. The mirror match does suck, mulligan for Kolkar.

besides being plenty 'efficient,' dad legend is no mean feat in and of itself. that's where I am more months than not

but of course, let me tell you based on personal experience as a dumbass who's gotten legend six or seven times: legend is a function of time spent playing way more than it is of player skill. like, starting from the rank floor going to legend you do have to maintain an overall winrate over 50%, that's true. but it doesn't have to be 60%, it can be 50.0000001% - you just have to play enough games to translate that into fifteen more wins than losses. and the existence of the floor plus hearthstone being so goddamn random means that sooner or later enough bullshit will roll in your favor long enough to get you there... if you just keep playing.

The real motivation to hit legend nowadays is to keep your bonus stars to get back to rank 5 super fast. Or if you get lucky while durdling in legend, the 2x star bonus in D5-1 making infinite legend. This fear of star decay has somehow ended up with me making legend on both standard and wild each month rather than just using wild as somewhere to jam out easy mage wins for quests

You should trigger the getting Legend achievement regardless - my achievement is backdated to July 2014.

There is a separate one that unlocks the free Legendary card though but view that as a bonus.

So the priorities here are:

1) getting greybough in hand asap
2) cheap sticky minions for him to deathrattle onto
3) spells that make another greybough or spikeshell him
4) stuff that can counter greybough if he gets stolen/copied

I had a version thag included ramping but I didnt feel like it helped the main strategy

I feel like there's maybe a wide-board sub theme you could work in as a plan B when you dont get greybough in hand but I feel like I get him most of the time and you can sacrifice face for time since once you're rolling on the strategy theres not much that can touch your face


Are there any copying/doubling effects im missing out on?

drat for real? The owls have saved my rear end against mages and other folks who can steal one GB off me.

Thanks though. I will see if I can craft plague maw and try arbor up. I have noticed that it rocks when it comes up in a discovery but it just becomes kind of unnecessary once the wall of gb's is going anyway. Probably not a bad secondary strategy thing though

Unless your pocket meta is waaaaaaaaaay different than mine, I would say the owls are totally useless 9 times out of 10. I'd be more worried about Greybough being devolving missiled than stolen.
