Blizzard announced via the Hearthstone Forums today that two cards that have been hotly debated since the dawn of the latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzen, will be receiving changes. The first of the cards will be Small-Time Buccaneer will be getting its health changed from 2 to 1 which should allow for an easier time for players to deal with this minion. Secondly, Spirit Claws will now cost 2 instead of only 1. Shaman is clearly a strong deck and this should help with slowing down it’s ramp up. The other announcement included in this post has to do with Ranked Play changes, and ranking floors. As of now, the currently floor (the point at which you can no longer lose rank) is at 20. When 7.1 hits, this will add additional floors to ranks 15, 10, and 5. The explanation for this was outlined in Zeriyah’s post below:
Note: This article will be updated as soon as new details arise. Bookmark it for your convenience. Overview: Who is Kazakus? Kazakus is the first Tri-Class Legendary that was spoiled from the new Hearthstone Expansion Mean Streets of Gadgetzan (MSoG) and he is a real interesting one. First, lets take a look at his card text and stats: Mana Cost: 4 Attack: 3 Health: 3 Type: Minion Rarity: Legendary Class: Mage/Priest/Warlock Text: Battlecry: If your deck has no duplicates, create a custom spell. Custom spell? That’s the way we want it! In fact, the community was asking for this exact thing quite a long time. Ok, but what is this custom spell thing? You obviously cannot just write a custom text down in your time limit and then fire it off. The process of putting together a spell is a sequence of three discover mechanics, discovering a potion/ingredient each which
Priest is not top tier, that’s common knowledge at the moment. Anduin and Tyrande suffer from being too reactive rather than proactive. Nevertheless, Priest is one of the most interesting class mechanic-wise (tinkers around with the opponent’s cards). Rogue, the other class taht uses a similar mechanic, is very heavy on the RNG side of stealing opponent’s card whereas Priest interacts a lot more directly with the opponent’s deck. Therefore it is skill intensive, but yet more reliable than the burgle mechanic. I enjoy playing Priest despite it being rated low tier. Maybe you will appreciate that too by watching some “Hearthstone Priest Extravaganza”! Continue with the full official blog post below.
Yogg-Saron is fun and he is a surprisingly good comeback card. That’s why the old god became more and more popular over the last weeks. I already covered his mechanic in the Yogg-Saron Infographic on June 24th. With the increasing appearance in the game, there are viable decks for a lot of classes already available. Today, I will bring you at least one deck for every class, that you too will be able to take the god of death into the new ranked season (S28). I can only encourage you to try at least some of the decks. They may not only be viable on ladder but also incredibly fun. The playstyles of these compositions are a bit more demanding compared to cookie cutter decks though, but in the end, if you become able to master them, they can feel very rewarding. Be sure to check out the infographic article I mentioned above. In it, give you a lot
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.
The Hearthstone subreddit is going wild on speculations once again, with the upcoming announcements of March 11th only a couple of days away. This time, a post by PlayTank quotes a 4 month old reddit post by KarbyP from a japanese site. By accidently quoting voice-overs of possibly new cards it previously predicted some LoE cards right: Arch-Thief Rafaam, Elise Starseeker, Ethereal Conjurer, Museum Curator, Naga Sea Witch and Chieftain Scarwash (LoE Boss). The rumor is, that we might see new alternate hero skins for Paladin, Priest and Rogue by Lady Liadrin, Tyrande Whisperwind and Maiev Shadowsong respectively. I dug up alternate hero portraits on hearthpwn to give you an impression what they might look like: Credits go tohearthpwn users Mountain Giant, Novice Engineer and Hackergrad. Fullas Games already published a vision of how Tyrande and Maiev may look like: There is still room in the post to speculate about new cards that we might
The beginning of the season is here and you all know what that means – aggro decks galore. The reason behind it is what I believe is the broken nature of ranked play as it encourages players to try and rank up as fast as possible early on, which encourages fast win decks with a lower win percentage than decks that take longer to play out. So at that point, you can either join them or try and beat them. We talk about this almost every week on the Well Met Podcast. This month however, I have decided to take on aggro by playing what is very much an anti-aggro deck that also does well against the top deck in the meta right now – Grim Patron Warrior. The Lightbomb Priest deck got it’s popularity in China and is really considered a tier-4 deck list – but don’t let that fool
