That's why I don't play Heroic Brawl. I have the 1k gold (I'm saving for the new expansion) but I'm not good enough to try since I average 5 victories in normal arena and usually I get rank 11-10 each season

Good, informative video on the cards and decks we will be losing during the year of the mammoth by Trump. A bit long though.

Journey to Un'Goro was released today. Opened up my preorder pack + 37 packs I bought with gold. Opened up 5 legendaries, two of which were repeats: Awakened the Makers (Priest quest), Kalimos, Spiritsinger Umbra, and Ozruk. After dusting some new/old wild cards and getting the dust from the Hall of Fame, I currently have 22.5k dust to spend on for new cards. I could get a couple thousand more if needed by dusting all the wild cards but I won't do that just yet haha.

IKR. I'm so casual that I won't for decks to be posted so I don't have to think them up myself. Lol.

Elemental's feel really good / fun to play. The downside is (at least when using them on a Mage) your hand fills up insanely quickly with 1:1 cards.

So far, I have tested out the quest Paladin, Plantlock, and elemental shaman. Elemental shaman have been pretty easy wins for me while Plantlock is still 50/50 for me. I NEVER touched "handlock" back in the day, so maybe that's why I'm not so good at Plantlock, but I just won me last 4 quests in a row for the free quest Portrait. I'm gonna wait a bit so that newer decks that pop up are tested more and locked in before potentially wasting my dust. I do have to say though that elemental shaman is so fun. Plantlock is kinda boring, just taunt and overwhelm your opponent with 4/5, 4/8/, and 8/8 minions lol.

Core Rogue is everywhere. However, I've found Zoo Warlock, updated with the 3 cost egg-rattle and Clutchmother Zavas, can outrace it most of the time. So it's been the one thing I'm playing. Adjusting mulligan priority is a continual experience but an intriguing one.

Core Rogue wouldn't be such an issue if it wasn't for the bugged cards

Turn [1][2]
• Quest
• Coin
• Swashbuckler (+1 Quest)

↑ This really shouldn't happen.

The discard mechanic is extremely dumb and they heavily pushed it this set. You either highroll and your opponent gets frustrated or you don't and then you're frustrated. Whatever outcome one of the players will feel bad about it.

God, never though I would hate any other deck more than Freeze mage, but now I do: Freeze mage quest deck or whatever you want to call it. God it's so annoying to think your so far ahead only to get rekt with their quest. Though, luckily I did just beat down a mage deck playing quest Druid. I had 2 taunts + Tyrantus + 27 health + 16 armor. He couldn't get past the armor. Thank goodness for Feral Rage.

the arcane giant version can be survived by taunts and armor since it relies on alex battlecry + 2 giants to the face.

the "exodia" version however can only be stopped realistically by dirty rat, if you manage to get his apprentice or antonidas then you basically win since it relies on the infinite fireball turn.

The better way to beat the Exodia version is to rush them hard. Taunt Warrior also gives them grief.

I'm preferring a Secret Mage lineup I saw Kolento use on stream. Makes life hell for Pirate Warriors and has the midgame to last a bit longer against others. But again, Taunt Warrior wrecks it along with Purify Priest.

HGG has been very heartening. The countries participating are showing a lot of variety with their decks. Koreans played a variant of Purify Priest, Lifecoach played a specific anti-aggro Priest that also ruins Freeze Mage. Token Druid can go insanely fast if it gets the right mulligan. Elemental Shaman has a lot of reload. Midrange Hunter has juice. Zoo Warlock has some power back. Elemental Paladin is viable. The way Ostkaka played Core Rogue with Vanish and going for a late completion to guarantee victory was brilliant.

Arena is very different now. Synergy and combos are essential to stand a chance. Drafting a theme is more crucial now.

Been playing a Control Priest with Lyra the Sunshard (beastly Priest legendary). Does quite well against most decks. I was able to pull off a challenging and neat game against a Quest Rogue with having 4 Dragon Fire Potions to keep his board clear, but in general, I haven't had much luck against most Quest Rogues. I do have to say, Mass Dispel is a pretty nice tech card for this deck. Unfortunately, it does not affect Rogue's Quest, which doesn't really makes sense IMO. Yes, the Quest affects all of the Rogue's minions and it counts as a spell affecting a minion (as noted when you cursor over it). So, shouldn't Mass Dispel (or any silence) should still cancel any spell and all spells/effects on that minion? I mean the Quest is acting like a "land" or "field" card (like in other games), but at the same time it isn't since there is no such thing as a land/field card (yet...lol). Thoughts on this?

I don't see the problem. The quest is what provides the buff and cannot be interacted with once it has been played so the stats cannot be dispelled.

And garbage against every other deck.
It works just fine against hunters who are spamming low cost beasts and pretty much every sort of 'aggro' deck that relies on low cost minions.

It's statistically unlikely that you will get one solo deck that will be good against everything. If you're even going to consider that route you go down the path of least detriment.

"Eater of Secrets" is a great example of a card that (in general) may end up being useless most of the time, but with the sheer amount of classes who can end up with a secret and the fact it wipes all secrets (hello secret spamming mages) it's inclusion isn't all that risky or detrimental.

Mana Wraith hinders you as much as it does them. Against control it's flat out detrimental to you, aggro just ignores a 2/2 without board impact and combo will happily accept a turn the opponent does nothing but increase the cost of their hand by 1.

Eater of Secrets and Mana Wraith are cards that can be used for niche fun decks but competitive decks need value on every single card in their deck. There is no space for cards that are dead against half the match-ups.
