BlizzPro's Hearthstone

 

While a lot of people scream for nerfs when cards feel overpowered, I don’t see many people calling for buffs to long forgotten cards. In my mind, every non-joke card should at least be a decent fit in a viable deck. Also, the meta would grow a lot more interesting if a wider array of cards suddenly started seeing play. So without further ado… Welcome back to Mending Mondays, a weekly feature where I, Dannie “IAmDiR23″ Ray will take a look at some of the worst cards in the Hearthstone Classic Set and evaluate why they are deemed to be horrible, and what could be done to fix them. Totemic Might, showing once again that 0 mana cards are really hard to balance. Totemic is a card whose effect can be really usable, but overall the card feels too situational to fit in an all purpose deck. For a card ...

Not so much, unless you count its original version and even ...

 

Every Friday a legendary member from team IHearthU breaks down IHU’s “Deck of the Week” . These decks are seeing a lot of play either in constructed ladder or tournaments. Team IHU explains the deck lists and how to play them. View past Deck Lists of the Week. Team IHU: Twitter | Website Sponsored by: Kinguin – Waypoint Get Coaching from Team IHU: http://ihearthu.com/coaching This week’s Deck of the Week is none other than the very popular Ramp Druid that has been all over the ladder this week. Popularized by Fr0zen, this ramp deck doesn’t play the Force of Nature / Savage Roar combo but instead plays a lot of high value minions and draw power. This deck is meant to keep up with the heavy card advantage decks while playing lots of early removal to combat the aggro decks. Watch out for this one, because this has become quite the popular deck on ladder and for good reason. ...

Community Manager Zeriyah has posted some new information about the 2015 Hearthstone World Championship. It appears that this year will be somewhat similar to last year but the details are a bit vague. It appears getting in through ranked play will still be a thing as well as participating in Blizzard sanctioned tournaments (no details yet on when those are) and even Fireside Gatherings. I would assume the Fireside Gatherings is similar to the pre-pre-qualifier that they had last year where winning a Fireside Gathering tournament simply allowed you a chance to play in a tournament for a chance to play in the qualifier. Unfortunately, this post does leave a lot more questions than it answers – such as how do players acquire points (it says you need 2 by July but doesn’t really go into details on how to get them) and which regions will be eligible to participate. ...

The Kidnapper has been long considered a weak card. Besides having some minimal use in a gimmick Mill Rogue deck, the Kidnapper doesn’t see play in any type of Rogue builds? But it’s not like he doesn’t fit any of the ...

Team IHU: Twitter | Website Sponsored by: Kinguin – Waypoint Get Coaching from Team IHU: http://ihearthu.com/coaching Hey! It’s IHU-Impact here with another Deck of the Week. This week, we’re going to look at a slightly modified version of Xixo’s Zoo deck. This Zoo deck was able to achieve #1 legend on NA, EU and the Asia server. This deck’s incredibly good at putting on board pressure early and has a great recovery mechanic in the form of Imp-losion. Due to recent metagame shifts and the huge upswing Big Game Hunter’s popularity, some changes were made because Sea Giant loses a lot of strength if it’s your only Big Game Hunter target. ...
