Finally made it to rank 5. Thanks token shaman.

Last game was against this bizarre druid deck that was trying to be both Aggro and Jade at the same time. Pirates, Living Mana, Druid of the Swarm, Power of the Wild, AND the entire Jade Package with at least one Ultimate Infestation. Strange, Strange, strange.

I am going to be so damn happy once Ice Block is gone.

Never again will I have to deal with that stupid fucking card.

Edit: There, rank 5 done. Thanks for the list Mobius, it was cruise control for the most part outside of a bad 3 game run near the end.

I wonder if there's a workable quest Priest deck out there. I guess nobody really bothers since Highlander is so much better but it actually feels like it could be kind of close to viable.

I don't really see the point of the quest. It's a one time heal that comes too late for the match-ups it would actually matter in. Not exactly something you'd want to cripple your deck for.

Just beat a Jade Druid with Tempo Mage in ranked. The Druid was continually spamming Greetings from the start of the game to the point I had to squelch him. I win then he insta adds me and proceeds to go on a tirade about my "insane tempo" and "perfect draws" to which I gave the only reasonable response "Ah, Hello there". He then suggest that I find out what being humble is - me?!

I've seen a few people running something similar. The problem is that it doesn't really have a solid win condition. Amara gets you to 40HP but then what? Your best bet is nzoth but even he only generates so much value before a board clear. If you add Elise that can sometimes help but I'm not sure the minion value is ever going to be there when you compare it to Jades, Tempo rogue or hunter, shaman tokens, or machine gun priest.

In a different world it would be a great deck but right now is The wrong place and time unfortunately.

Yeah, the quest is to draw Raza and Shadowreaper and the reward is SO MUCH better than Amara.

Just like the new Quest rogue is drawing Keleseth and Shadowstep.

Back to priest, even in Wild with all the great deathrattles (Sylvanas and Sludge Belcher are still really good) you're better off cutting the quest package and going full machine gun with cards like Recruiter or Spawn of Shadows.

Quest Priest isn't ever going to relevant unless Raza gets nerfed.

It's hard to judge pre-release a deck building card like prince keleseth. After the nerfs were announced I thought keleseth rogue would be strong and crafted it and did some testing in prep for the nerfs though. My pre-nerf list did really well too. Although I eventually went for a bit higher of a curve.

alright you win drawing keleseth on 2 and guldan on 10. Hard to keep up with that.

Got to 2 stars rank 1 before falling all the back to 0 2 with Mobius' deck.

Zealous, don't give away all the hot Wild strats! I've been running Spawn of Shadows in Priest of a while and it's really good. ESPECIALLY with Raza and the DK, but you don't even really need them. There are plenty of ways to make your hero power re-usable in Wild. Stuff that lets you use it twice or refreshes it when you do other things. It's a veritable buffet of choices in how you want to kill your opponents.

What a world we live in where Spawn of Shadows is considered a pretty good card. I remember when that set came out how many people were clowning on that card. NOW LOOK AT IT! TOP TIER IN WILD

EDIT: This is what I get for posting on mobile and trying to figure out who is who by looking at avatars. It's TankUP not Zealous.

There was actually a OTK deck being played in MSOG I think it was. Basically auctioneer beardo plus other cards. So it even saw play in standard.

I don't remember exactly. I remember kripp played the deck and I thought it was stupid and then I lost to it once or twice. lol

Was it competitive? Probably not.

At the time I couldn't care about competitive HS because it was all reno/pwar/conceal miracle rogue crap. I despised that meta.

The old meme of Blizzard balance and taking turns is in full effect, I will say the meta is more diverse, but it still has the old problems of people being lazy assholes causing the player base to play those same decks 20 times a day.

Blizzard deciding to print Shadowreaper as is, knowing Raza was still in Standard, was a straight fuck you from Mike Donais team which is suppose to "tone" the cards once the initial design team creates the cards. It blows my mind that they at one point thought 3 damage a refresh was even considered a thought. This deck will be toned down once either A) more healing cards are printed for classes that don't have an abundance of them or more likely B) Raza rotates out next year and we just have to wait it out just like we did with nerfing Druid.

I've moved on to Recruiter. It creates a 2/2 for one every time you hero power, so you can hero power like a million times in one turn, and you don't need to run mirage caller.

Yeah, but it was a card for a Kripp meme deck before and now it's a key card in the best deck in the wild format. And anyway, my whole point was that in wild you cut all the deathrattle crap to make room for the OTK stuff. With Greater Healing and Reno you never need Amara.

My wild version runs Hemet and Benedictus because all I want to do is get Raza and Reaper and Recruiter and then burst them down. Hemet to destroy my deck so I draw those cards and Bene to extend the game if I need to.

a surprising amount of players I've met playing the razakus priest are playing that bene/hemet combo. Sometimes they whiff it.

running both spawn of shadows and recruiter doesn't seem bad considering both feed on the same principle.

I concur with recruiter in wild. It's a much better fit -- only 1 card combo (once you have Raza and Anduin) and it's super flexible in terms of how you use it. It can also... um, take over the board, although generally people have answers to it if they are ahead to begin with.



In other news, I have a warrior quest. Should I just get rid of it? Not sure if any warrior is truly viable right now.

You don't want to run both. It's already really hard to find room for everything you need.

I like recruiter better because you have to win the turn you play spawn because of how much damage you take, and recruiter you can go in and set up a two turn lethal if you need to.

I've been seeing a lot of Bittertide Hydras in Hunter lists and I feel like I die to it way to often. A series of Blizzard or Unleash or Defile just completely wrecks me on the spot sometimes even if I seem to be way ahead the turn I drop it. 26-26 (hovering between Rank 13 and 11) over my last 52 matches, I'm losing a ton of mirrors and Shaman feels like a bad matchup. I really like playing against Mage tho!

Hydra is very popular in hunter atm. It sounds like your opponents just happen to have strong answers to it which is a real possibility. The upside is you will often win by playing it on turn 5.

Shaman is a bad match up for hunter, especially if they go first. Hunter is worse than shaman at fighting from behind in that match up.

End of season ranked climb thoughts: Control Warlock mirrors are still some of the most fun matches in the game. Both decks have just enough removal for each other's threats, so outside of lopsided Death Knight draws, it's all about who maximized value and who has the better tech cards. Edged out one running Leeroy + Faceless because I ran an extra Tar Creeper.

Zoo's probably the better Warlock deck to ladder with at this point, but the "who draws Keleseth first" game with Rogues can be silly.
