After experiencing it firsthand, I can confidently say that golden Baron and two golden bombs is the best Battlegrounds build.

Ive been playing Galakrond Rogue. Its an indefensibly broken deck. If youre drawing 7 cards and reducing them to 0 mana (or 10 or even 13 cards if youre in a matchup where you can Shadowstep Togwaggle), you are playing Hearthstone in a way that never should happen. Mana cheating in this game is not something it can handle, and this deck does it in the most extreme way possible. Only Hunter feels unwinnable.

Put this a different way. If a deck allows me to win at high rates, its too good. For obvious reasons, right FD?

I finally got Mogu Cultist to win a game for me against a Mage that never played two copies of any card, so I don't know what he was actually playing.

Definitely a one and done brawl. I got a legendary out of my pack, at least.

Ive played about 60 games of Galakrond Rogue. After a 10 game losing streak because of seeing NOTHING bur bad matchups, I changed decks to Mech Paladin. In the entire time I played Rogue, I saw one warrior and one shaman. It was mainly Druids and Warlocks, because those are the bad matchups for Galakrond Rogue.

In 6 games with Paladin, Ive played against 3 Warriors and 3 Shamans. This is yet more proof that your matchups are absolutely, provably, 100% based on what deck youre playing and its yet more proof of Hearthstone not being skill-based. The game decides if youre going to win or lose long before you actually press Play. I am thoroughly convinced of this, because Ive seen trash like this way too many times. The matchups always change when you switch decks. Every time.

Hearthstone is by far the worst game ever made, from the worst company in the planets history. Ill take anything Enron did over this garbage. They were at least honest about what trash they were, and no one defends them. Blizzard has an army of simps at the ready to defend any stupidity.

There are actually simps who defended Blizzard changing the NZoth raid in WoW in the middle of a world first encounter. Think of the idiocy involved in that.

Forgot to mention. Every month for two years, Ive hit a huge losing streak right when I get to one win away from hitting rank 5. It stops being an accident after while.

The fix is easy: class ladder ban. Its the only way to mitigate Blizzards constant fuckups.

Switch to highlander dragon hunter, get three games in a row against Embiggen Druid. In all three the sidequest pulled out Winged Guardian.

No one on this entire planet will ever convince me any of these results are legitimate. Your matchup is very, very clearly based on the deck youre playing.

Oh and just so it's on the record, the previous turn, I Cinderstorm'd for 20 missiles.

I started really going backwards trying to play interesting Singleton and Elemental decks, so I decided if I'm not allowed to have fun, no one else gets to either, and picked up Mech Paladin. Logged in today and got the new card for it and played one game against a Rogue. Here's how it went:
Turn 1
Dragon's Hoard
Crystology
Turn 2
Dagger up
Coin -> Galvanizer -> Galvanizer -> Micro Mummy -> Shotbot -> Magnetize Glowtron onto a Galvanizer
Turn 3
Concede, leaving my two 1-cost Sky Claws in hand unused.

Heroic Reno by far is the hardest challenge in this solo adventure. Not sure if it was just terrible luck or not, but are the random spells Reno gets taken from a small pool of spells that are always potentially beneficial to him? Because I never saw any spells that were negative for him, or even neutral, outside of something like a damage spell that happens to hit one of his own. He casts a ton of 1-cost spells, but I never saw anything like Deadly Poison, Tracking or Soulfire being cast as a result.

I've been stubbornly refusing to craft Zilliax because it rotates soon since about a month after it came out, it's going to feel really good when it finally rotates here in a couple of months and I don't have that same thought literally every time I build a deck.

I got to Rank 5 in Wild with Triple Reno, so I'm back to playing silly decks at Rank 7 in Standard. Bandersmosh is such a meme card and I love it. I've only been able to play it twice in the three games I've played as Highlander Shaman, but it's won me the game both times.

I had to hero slam it down on Turn 6 against a Token Druid when it became Dragonqueen Alexstrasza, and it gave me Nozari and Ysera Unleashed, and I was able to stabilize and win. Then against a Reno Mage, I dropped a Turn 4 10/10 in stats with a Coin -> 5/5 Onyxia into a Haunted Visions getting a Bloodlust for Turn 5 lethal before he could play any of his AoE.

You all need to go craft Bandersmosh and play him right now; HE'S SO FUN. Just got a Turn 6 Kalecgos into Eye of the Storm. Only including games I played this morning (finished on a 6-game winning streak and hit Rank 5 anyway, btw), I've played him as: Boommaster Flark, Dinotamer Brann, and Sir Finley of the Sands. I've yet to hit the Hi'reek Dream, but that's what I aspire to before I quit playing this deck.

I hate how picky the requirement for "Play X Games" is, I played three games in tavern brawl today and none of them counted. Opponent had lethal on board in all three games but apparently to get the 60 gold I need to pass and let my opponent slowly play his entire hand and hopefully actually kill me.

Is there anything worse than finally getting a Megasaur in battlegrounds and then seeing:

+3 Attack
+3 Health
+ Taunt

Yeah health is basically just a slightly better seer which isnt bad, might be better than Windfury too

Taunt isnt terrible either since it enables Strongshell

+3 Attack
+1 Attack/Health
Windfury

is way worse. Taunt has value, especially if you can grab a Strongshell Scavenger. Health is always usable. Plants are good if your opponent is playing mechs. Obviously DS and poison are your targets.

Huzzah, I'm on top of the world! Well, the HS world, for the moment.

https://www.reddit.com/r/hearthstone/comments/f9r4so/alright_blizzard_its_time_no_more_duplicate_epics/

Up to 2500 upvotes now with a 95% ratio. I know it's not exactly a revolutionary idea, but with tomorrow's major announcement and Blizzard saying they wanted to move the game in a more user-friendly direction, I thought the timing was right to give them a little nudge in this direction.

Ridiculous imbalance of epics has really hurt my experience with the last two sets on release day. Not only did I get surprisingly few epics, but the ones I got were not a very representative sample. Making up numbers, I maybe got 20 total and 4 were the same card.

Today we revolutionize the world of Hearthstone: instead of retiring Ziliax, we are instead making every deck need 31 cards and forcing everyone to include him in every deck, forever.

I was doing so badly but now I'm in a 3 win streak in Battlegrounds

Wock with Brann and Kalecgos (I mainly only used it for early triples that I don't think ultimately really mattered all that much, got a huge Brann Murozond loop going that really pushed the late game, and got my Kaleg golden)

Curator Menagerie Golden Brann build (I was heavily Murlocs on the Menagerie side but didn't get a single Megasaur, doesn't matter when you have a golden Brann and a bunch of Softshells and Magicians and a huge cleave)

Tirion Baron build (Got a late Kangor's and Triple Baron with a Bomb package along with my strong neutral package of Righteous and Bolvar, my opponent sold Zapp at the end which is kinda wtf)

I'm only at 6.5k but I feel like I'm starting to figure things out better, or just got luckier

Wow, that's an awesome run you're on! 6.5k means you're in the top 22% of active players so you're doing great.

Instead of going for MMR I'm doing an All Hero Challenge, so far I've finished first place with 17 different characters, so I was making serious progress... until they dropped 7 new ones on us!

AFK is so good after this last update!

She gave me Cobalt plus the DS/Reborn dragon so naturally I was all about the shields from there out. This final battle was close because I got unlucky and his 7/4 attacked first, shielding his entire board, but I still edged out a close victory.

In addition to the three golds you see there I actually had to throw away two other Goldens during the run. Swapped out my Lightfang Enforcer (after many rounds of boosting) for the big Rover to ensure at least one refresh on my Cobalt, and got rid of my Glyph Guardian (triple attack boosting wasn't relevant enough, was hitting too many shields) to make room for the Zapp. For the final boss fight I knew Ysera had one huge dragon so I'd normally have jammed Maexxna 100%, but I'd also seen his Nadina previously which made it a little too risky IMO- went with the sure thing in the Ghastcollier instead. Which did juuuuuuust enough damage to put me over the top.

That's what I love about Battlegrounds, keeping an eye on your opponents and using that limited information to make fun decisions like that on the fly!
