The Hearthstone team is hiring and Kripparrian does the 100 in 10 challenge in only 9 rounds (kind of)! In the meta this week, the guys discuss Tempo Storm’s Meta Snapshot as well as Vicious Syndicate’s Data Reaper Report #2! Lastly, PvP is back! This week, JR and Kevin go head to head in a Hearthstone battle of knowledge and wits! The topics ...

Introduction First of all, sorry for taking so long to prepare this infographic. You may see why, it is HUGE! I analyzed 465 minions and had to put all of these into one sheet. My computer refused service with such a high dataload more than once, but now it is finished, the Forbidden Shaping infographic. The next infographic will most likely also take a while, as my real life, more precisely work, will be very stressful throughout June. So exspect me back wit hanother of these graphics at the beginning of July. I might be able to squeeze in a small one in between but I can’t make promises. As always, my analysis is intendend for Standard play mode only. The Card Forbidden Shaping is a card which was not conceived very well by the community when first announced. It is very heavy on the RNG side and most of ...

Join us live on Sunday evenings for the video stream, or download the audio podcast on Mondays! In this week’s episode, the guys talk about the HCT Spring Preliminaries and their favorite players and decks from the tournament. Afterwards, Kevin and John discuss a high-level player dropping out mid-tournament and what that could mean for the professional scene going further. As the meta continues to solidify, the guys talk about what decks are on the ladder courtesy of Mana Crystal’s State of the Meta #3. /u/Axros digs in to some arena numbers to talk about the decreasing likelihood of ...

Introduction Newer Zoolocks have undergone some change, it has gotten a bit more bursty and new cards rotated in while old one rotated out, e.g. Forbidden Ritual and Darkshire Councilman have replaced cards Imp-losion and Haunted Creeper. Leeroy Jenkins is also back in a big fashion. One choice though struck me as odd: the inclusion of Crazed Alchemist. Without proper reflection, my initial thoughts were, that the card was probably chosen to get off some additional burst if needed or preventing e.g. an injured Darkshire Councilman from dying. In some situation this might be an useful application, but the general assumption was way off the mark. Crazed Alchemist – A Surprisingly Effective Tech Choice Looking at the minions in the deck, apart from the already mentioned Darkshire Councilman, changing high health minion’s attack and health to generate burst, seems not likely to be the reasoning behind the inclusion of Crazed Alchemist. To find the answers, ...

In episode 61, the guys take to the airwaves to talk about HCT, the publication of decklists before the tournament, and how the tournament meta is shaping up in general. Next, Carling “Toastthebadger” Filewich wrote this article about devastating state of Twitch chat rooms and the guys weigh in on ways to address the important issues involved. Not wanting to get in too deep, the guys chat a bit about their quirky Tavern Brawl experiences in the “Top 2” Tavern Brawl. Since ...

A very well met to all of you. Today’s short article is for all of the Johnnys and to some extend also for the Timmys as the decks I will show you involve a lot of huge creatures too. It is not really fit for the Spikes out there though, they just have to continue playing Midrange Shaman, Miracle Rogue and N’Zoth Paladin. You don’t know what I am talking about? Take a look at this MTG article here. In short there are three type of players: Timmy, Johnny and Spike. For Timmy  it is all huge minions and huge spells, if he wins, which is less common for his style of play, he wants to win with all these big bombs. Johnny cares about winning, but he wants to win with style! Spike is the tryhard player. All that is important is winning, no matter how boring it gets. ...

Warrior was my most favored class since I began playing Hearthstone. I already loved playing this class as a main tank in WoW, and that remained true for Hearthstone. Warlock is my other preferred class, but has to some part fallen out of my favor at least, as I am a little tired of playing Zoo and Reno decks are not particularly my piece of cake. Also, I try to make Control Shaman work almost every season – with minor success so far. I am tinkering with a N’Zoth Shaman right now, which is decent but ...

The Grand Tournament Before Standard When The Grand Tournament (TGT) came out, it was considered a bad expansion. With the extreme power of Curse of Naxxramas and Goblins vs. Gnomes only a very select number of cards made it into competitive play. Atop of that, the Inspire mechanic did not become a thing. Inspire is powerful but just too slow. Following, you will find TGT cards that were highly relevant in competitive / ladder play (besides fringe play) before Standard (Cards that were flex cards only or saw only fringe play are not included) : Class ...

With a new expansion means a new meta! The Well Met! crew dives into the Tempo Storm Meta Snapshot and what you should expect to see on ladder as well as what to play this ...
