is there anything that Zephrys can offer which can defend against all the OTK Warlocks in Wild? I'm desperately searching for a reason not to just auto-concede against every Warlock

It's a brawl so who cares, but making big tokens seems a bit more consistent than either of these. DH needs to do a fuckload of stuff, and if you get taunts up, has to find Altruis and play enough to burn your taunts. Druid I've seen with malygos, but you have to find celestial alignment + play it to make it work. With tokens you have a ton of different ways to fill and buff your board.

Well, it was fun for me. And you don't need to do any of those things, you just just draw your entire deck in a turn and get +30 attack on your hero. DH has immune and Druid has a bunch of armor and healing.

I am out of Wild until they nerf something cause the choice seems to be play OTK Warlock or lose to OTK Warlock and as much fun as the deck is I hate playing against it.

Basically every spell in DH works lol, although you have to be quick. Every draw spell, every attack spell, cheapest 2 mana draw minions. It's almost 100% win on Turn 1, but the big problem is speed because the timer is shorter on T1. You take 0 damage because of Blur/Relentless Strikes and can cycle with minions like Novice/Prize Vendor so long as you draw them with Skull. You want at least Skull or Acrobatics in opening hand.

Some filthy greybough shenanigans and arbor up fun as a back up. I kept archspore out of the previous decks because he would gently caress up fordring tutoring out greybough but it seems worth the trouble now.

An actual intentional fatigue Priest in Dad Legend. Genuinely considered Seppuku by lamp.

Honestly, how long has Priest been like this now, a year? An entire class whose purpose is to randomly ensure one of the two players does nothing all game, and itís just deciding which person itíll be?

Literally all the drawing, plus attack and direct damage spells. On druid some armor and healing while on DH both immune spells.

Word to from the wise for duels:

Constructed Face Hunter can kick an exceeding amount of rear end if you have the "beast dies, draw a card" treasure. Just take a single of all the good cards and go hog wild.

I got an email to do a blizzard survey and they're asking about the effectiveness of marketing copy. I think it includes details on the mercenaries mode that haven't been released yet.

They also had questions about celebrities or influencers that might be a good fit for an endorsement. Mr T, Rick and Morty, Henry Cavill, and Deepfuckingvalue were all options. There was also talk of being a gacha game and collaborations with anime properties, so the bounties in mercenaries could be a new currency for packs that effect that particular mode.

That email makes Mercenaries sound less like a new game mode and more like an entirely new game that happens to be launched through Hearthstone. It seems like a lot to add to the Hearthstone team's ongoing work.

How to even estimate? I assumed they were tracking all this poo poo behind the scenes.

Conservatively guessing, half an hour a day, every day, for the past 7? years? 1,277. Probably at least twice that if I'm being honest.

On the plus side, I've spent exactly $1.99

VS agrees with me, from their latest report:

quote:

Celestial Druid is one of the worst, if not the worst deck we can remember evaluating in reports. Itís so bad that its matchup with the innkeeper might be unfavored. It takes a special kind of deck to display a 35% win rate while maintaining any significant meta presence.
