By arena do you mean Artifact or am I just confused?

Assuming you do, hasn't Artifact already lost like 90% of its playerbase and tanked its secondary market?

EDIT: I didn't realize you were responding to Ulti and were talking about MTG. I have never seen anyone use "arena" as a shortform for it!

I've had an 80g quest for over a week but no one plays this game anymore.

I'm on once or twice per day; dunno if we're friends or on at the same time, tho.


We must not be! I'm done for the night but if you post your username maybe we can play tomorrow.

metcomposite#1193

I tend to hop on for a game or two during my breaks (so like noon, 3, 5 PST--not always for all of them; probably most reliably on at noon).


Sent!

If anyone else would like to add me my tag is Simmons#11339

Its been basically the same decks since Witchwood

If theres a reason for a decline, theres that

There is a very obvious connection between Smash coming out and players leaving this game. Gamers want good games where skill matters and the publisher actually cares. Blizzard is the exact opposite of all of that.

I dont want my games decided by RNG. If I lose, it should be because I was worse than the other player, not because a hunter rolled a bloatbat with lifesteal and rush against my aggro deck.

Only played once so far, but this is my kind of brawl. I know it's not, but I wish this was a test run for a future ladder that changes the available card pool with each expansion.

Edit: Never mind, literally every single game after the first one has just been Baku.

Rumble Run is just perfect as a game to play while watching youtube videos. And the shenanigans you can get up to are always fun. Gotta love stealing Val'anyr when you've got two of the two extra deathrattle shrines up. It's good times having a minion with effectively +20/+10 deathrattle equip Val'anyr 15 times haha. A shame I won that turn.

I really like this as a brawl. It's pretty degenerate in some ways (the two mech sets and the two hero power sets) but it's an unsolved meta, and I really enjoy unsolved metas (and also enjoy degenerate things >_>) so it's catnip for me.

Mech Hunter does have an instant target on its head (literally you can copy/paste a mech hunter decklist from a wild meta snapshot) but I don't think it's unbeatable, just any serious deck needs to run a looot of anti-aggro. Explosive Sheep helps.

I've been messing around with Even inspire decks. Notably, Justicar Trueheart is even, so you can get all the tempo benefits and inspire benefits of being Even early on, and then upgrade your hero power when mana is no longer a concern. Murloc Knight and Garrison Commander in an even deck is actually pretty disgusting.

I don't think there's enough good inspire cards to build the whole deck around inspire, and it is inherently kind-of slow, so I did end up running a bit of a mech shell to not die in the first four turns.

Does MTG arena really have a big player base?

Yes, WotC actually did something well with regards to an MTG digital product. It's very well made, looks good and provides a full MTG experience. You can collect every card in the game FTP, in addition to buying packs.

So...I've now officially spent 800 dust on a tavern brawl.

Someone on CompetitiveHS mentioned that Wild Even Mage is a deck, and I already had one Garrison Commander and one Coldarra Drake, so I crafted a second one of each.

I'm..........undefeated so far. >_>

The flaws of other control decks I tried to make were as follows: they don't have removal spells. I mean, neither does this mage deck, to be fair, but it has pings which is good enough. Whereas trying to control with Paladin...a runaway Micro Machine that they managed to protect could ruin my day. My paladin ran Explosive Sheep, but it had no way to activate it, so Magnetic could ruin my day.

This mage deck does run two spells, Flamecannon (in the deck to kill mechwarper; I would rather run Frostbolt) and Book of Spectres (to find Coldarra Drake).

The flip side of nobody having removal spells is that if Coldarra Drake ever lives, the game is over. Nobody has removal, so Drake just clears their board over and over.

The rest of the deck is Fallen Hero, some inspire cards (Tournament Medic, Boneguard Lieutennant), Refreshment Vendor, and a pile of mech trash (in my hunger for removal, Goblin Blastmage looks pretty good, and I need some filler cards to get my deck up to 30, so mechs it is).

I played that deck once on ladder. I won, but it was an extremely cool and fun game. Made me sad I didn't have all the pieces to finish the deck because I absolutely would play it if I didn't have to craft a bunch of epics.

The high power sets are rotating, which means a whole bunch of cards that are very niche right now will suddenly get used and it will be a very very different meta. The rotation will be great for the health of the game.

The meta is stale right now cause it's mostly dominated by cards from last year, cause power creep was out of control pretty much from MSoG through KnC. They lowered the power level (which is good for the long-term longevity of the game, but bad in the short term. Lower power sets get people to buy fewer packs, and cause the meta to not change very much). Basically they did the not greedy thing that's good for the continued health of the game.

But...yeah, there's reason why they've decided to focus on Wild this month (apparently all Wild tavern brawls this month, and a wild bundle).

I also wonder if switching from adventures to 3 sets a year is part of the problem here. With 6 full sets in standard it's the highest card count ever in standard; even if Rhakastan's Rumble was as powercreeped as KFT, say, it's still not going to swing the meta that strongly cause there's so damn many cards in Standard.

Can you get wild only options if you play it in wild right now? I've never actually tried.

I agree that they won't update it and are just going to let everyone be angry, and a year later I also expect them to just dump Whizbang in wild so you can play all those standard decks there.

Top 10 cards I'm excited to see leave standard soon

Honorable Mentions
Death Knights

Death Knights
-I'm playing a good game. But my death knight is a bottom 5 card. So it doesn't matter what I did. Yeah maybe playing well let me get to this point but I'm not going to win because of that.

HoF targets
Malygos
-In any meta, a dumb combo using this card will pop up.

Mountain Giant
-A monster that can warp the game and muligan around it when you know your opponent is playing the card. In past meta required certain tech choices just for this card.

10. Kingsbane
-This would have been much higher up the list if the deck was not nerfed. However, it's still pretty annoying when played against.

9. Wandering Monster
-I don't know if you guys realize how infuriating this is to play against. If you are anything except a control deck (or odd paladin where you have your button) you are basically left in a now win situation. You can attack into and hope you get lucky with a low roll minion or you can not attack and risk the danger of something like flanking or eaglehorn coming and just losing all tempo.

8. Fungalmancer
-The ultimate win more card. The big thing this does is just the threat of this when an opponent has 2 monsters on the field can force less than optimal plays because you know if they drop this it's over in a lot of situations.

7. Deathstalker Rexar
-When this card was not good I claimed that I thought this was in theory the best death knight in the entire game due to when it came down and the value you could generate. This card can single handily turn an aggressive deck into one that can beat control. I don't think this card was ever intended to have its monster pool expanded and now everyone who called for that is suffering the consequences on ladder.

6. Flanking Strike
-You know what sucks? When you're fighting to get onto the board vs hunter to stop their 4 5/5s that are coming the next turn but your monster gets hit with this. 4 health? Nevermind they had a candleshot.

5. Shadow Visions
-If you thought discover a spell was annoying, what about discover a copy of one from the deck. One of the reasons Priest can do the things it does is because they can be somewhat looser with their resources due to having access to this card. This means they can search for another scream, histeria, mind blast, etc.

4. Carnivorous Cube
-Even though cube decks are kind of falling off due to a lot of current strategies just not being good for them this is probably the card that 100% should have been nerfed in some way.

3. Lesser Emerald Spell Stone
-This is a ridiculous card that a number of classes can't even do anything about unless they have the board at the time. Given the difficulty in maintaining board against hunter these days this cards effectiveness is at an all time high. This is just a you have an answer or probably lose scenario which doesn't make for an interesting game.

2. Prince Keleseth
-While decks that use this card have kind of fallen off due to the prevalence of odd decks being to go to for aggro these days, this is still a turn 2 (1 with coin) play that can win the game.

1. The Caverns Below
-If there is a spot for this deck in the meta it will appear. Playing against the deck when you know you're unfavored is one of the least fun experiences in the game. You can't tech against it either like you can with some mechathun matchups if you're playing warlock. It's pretty much an instant loss for any deck that's not aggro. This is a quest that was so good it had to be nerfed twice and it still saw some high level play. The card 100% should have been redesigned completely or trashed to the point where it was unplayable.

Hot take. I liked the original Caverns Below meta. Largely because I played a faster aggro deck than it. I have literally never lost to a caverns below deck which also speaks volumes about how unbalanced it is when it could have decks that would beat it 100% of the time

I have no doubt it is. We used to have two real sets and one mini set that added maybe 8-10 influential cards. Granted, 8-10 influential cards is literally more than we're getting right now with this year's sets thanks to how powerful the old cards were.

HoF Targets:
Mind Control Tech. Mostly because fuck the RNG on this card. If Sylv is worth HoFing this is worth it too. (I don't mind it in this meta because it comes really close to equalizing against hunter spellstone on its own, but hunter spellstone rotates out, so no excuses).

They could also roll back some nerfs that totally destroyed a card and put it into HoF.

On Deathstalker Rexxar--they have the ability to exclude cards from the pool like they excluded King of Beasts, and said they wanted the ability to exclude others. THEY SHOULD HAVE EXCLUDED EXPLODING BLOATBAT. It's stupidly OP if you roll poison, and basically unplayable if you don't. (other than bloatbat I was ok with Rexxar in standard; in wild there's various forms of aoe damage).

Stuff I'm glad is rotating out:

1. Caverns Below

2. Frost Lich Jaina (I know it's not super meta right now, but god I hate playing against this card).

3. Every Single Recruit card. Drawing the card you were trying to recruit is just...obnoxious. If they are good they are inherently RNG fests and I hate playing the decks with them.

4. Spiteful Summoner. See above.

5. Skull of the Manari. Draw your weapon removal or lose. (Or sometimes they just don't have demons in hand). A card with no explicit RNG on it, but a ton of RNG in practice.

6. Keleseth. I'm looking forward to playing 2 drops again.

7. Psychic Scream. Shuffling junk in is obnoxious. Just an absurd card anyway. (And one I never pulled, so I basically didn't feel I could make Priest decks for a year).

8. The crazy good 1 drops. (Righteous Protector, Fire Fly, Dire Mole, and a little bit Archerus Veteran). Why are Odd decks good right now? Because they need to run a LOT of 1 drops otherwise they can't spend all their mana (they want a 1 drop on 1, often a hero power and a 1 drop on 3, and a 3 drop and a 1 drop on 4. To not leave floating mana before turn 4 they need at least 2, often 3 one drops in their first six cards. For a perfect curve they actually want four 1 drops so that they can double 1 drop on turn 2).

9. Sunkeeper Tarim. I mean, I even crafted him, but yeah, this card is bullshit. It wasn't that long ago that Wild players were calling this one of the two best cards in the entire game. (Odd Paladin forced it out a little in wild, but still).

10. DK Uther. RNG win condition; will you roll the minion you need and instantly win, or not and do basically nothing??

Honourable mention: Direhorn Hatchling. I just hate the stupid squealing sound the card makes when played.

Yeah a couple days ago I took off work and spent the day playing Hearthstone/watching streamers on twitch/feeding my face/playing RDR2 (it was a good day). Anyway, a bunch of the streamers were practicing for HCT/tournament and almost all of them practiced a Druid deck at some point. Turns out in a tournament environment where you can target decks and have bans it's more than viable.

Many of them did well on ladder with it which did surprise me, then again, they're fairly high level players so maybe it shouldn't have. I just think in a capable pilot's hands, Druid isn't as dead as we'd initially thought.

honestly, I was sad to lose the tempo evolve shaman deck it spawned, but even ignoring Quest Rogue I was happy to see Giggling nerfed.

The existence of Blood Knight and Mossy Horror just meant that Giggling was super swingy. Sometimes it was a good taunt, sometimes it just lost you the game instantly. But it was good enough that it didn't make sense to NOT put it in your deck even with the chance that it would just instantly lose you the game.

I've played against it recently (and lost). Silver Sword the previous turn into Giggling wrecked me. It's probably on the edge of playability at 7 mana (generally I consider a nerf good if the card still sees play at the new mana cost, and Giggling might get there if the meta is right for it).

Its mainly because Druids death led to Priests revival and Priest does very well against Hunter given they have great answers to Spellstone and can burst down before Rexxar becomes a issue

Also Baku Paladin in a world without Spreading Plague is about as good as it was before Level Up was nerfed

I had a game against a mind blast priest with a warlock I saw dog playing (cube lock without cubes but putting in soul wardens instead). I ran the version with cube and soul warden but I had to cut too much early game for that.

In any case it's always great when you get to soul warden back another soul warden and mojo master so the priest can never do a full burst turn while I such for 3 health too.

Also had one against a warrior where I got guldan and a soul warden in my discard pool (the warrior conceded as soon as I played the second warden.)

yeah I agree with that last sentence entirely. people just don't really see the bigger picture a lot of the time.

anyway, DK Rexar is one of those cards that was obviously overpowered but it received less complaining than you'd expect because people actually LIKE playing it. it never hit that critical point of previous unbalanced meta where everyone was complaining about the card because it was frustrating but everyone was also playing it because they HAD to. people are playing DK Rexar because they WANT to, and the fact that it's really good makes it annoying that it pops up so often.

DK Rexxar is a card that I've called the most fun hearthstone card ever printed. There's definitely variance, but it's two discovers so you can usually get something good.

I do think there's a problem when there's super highroll stuff, though. (Like Exploding Bloatbat into Poisonous). Then it changes from "usually something good" to "will they roll the 1/30 to get something ridiculously good?"

The Blizzard devs requested the right to exclude cards from the pool; they should have excluded bloatbat and...maaaybe Viscious Scalehide as well. Those two are kind of obvious highrolls.

Obviously there would still be some variance, but people can handle stuff like Viscious Fledgling+Stonetusk Boar.

RNG is the cancer that killed this game. Smash Ultimate was the chemo that kept the players alive and helped them all move on. There is NO reason to play this garbage unless youre taking a shit, and even that wont matter once we can use gamecube controllers for the mobile Switch.

Just made a play that was...not the best play, but definitely the funniest play.

VS Malygos Druid. I have two corpsetakers and a Lich King on board. They Malygos double swipe my face putting me at 12, and clearing my board. I play Equality Frostmourne to steal their Malygos (again, not the best play cause it puts me at 8, but funny).

Two turns later I broke Frostmourne and double consecrated for 14 damage.

I just played a gae against Cubelock where I got 12 rolls off of Cauldron and got no hexes. Zero.

39 spells in standard. (38/39)^12 = 73%

Odd paladin mirror. 6 triggers from Cauldron. No lighning storm, no tidal surge, no volcano, no nukes.

Chance of not getting lightning storm/tidal surge/volcano is (36/39)^12 = 61%.

So...first one is certainly expected outcome (you'd need closer to 39 spells from cauldron to really expect a hex, and 20 spells for a 50-50). Second one is...basically a lost coinflip depending on what you classify as nukes.

(So...you're not really getting that unlucky TBH, more that most randomly generated shaman spells are pretty mediocre).

If this didnt happen in every game I wouldnt care, but youve seen my games. I have to overcome bad draws, rng, and matchups in most of my games. Anyone would loathe this trash.

This actually sounds like a pretty good play to me since he used both swipes. Also, 8 is above UI+ double moonfire range.

Just played a Big Priest in Wild and Entombed his first 5 minions.

I've never felt so accomplished.

I mean, I could have developed the board instead (Equality, Pyromancer, some secret or something, another minion). He had floop but no spells, and he was DK malf, so if he topdecked a moonfire I'd go down to 2, then he'd try to hero power me that turn (fail because I had get down as a secret) and then hero power me the following turn and kill me. So...I gave him an out.

Although, granted, I suppose if I just develop some minions on the board then Spreading plague becomes an out too.

Five? I get four with shadow visions, but five?
