• Deck Guide – Murloc Snowball Aggro!
    12/29/2016
    That's not a bad idea, even with just one Smuggler's Run they're a nice 1/5 taunt vs Pirates. I actually went with Mistress of Mixtures, even without the buff she can handle the Small-Time Buccaneer and also gain you a bit of life back in the early turns. My win rate has actually gone up a crap ton against Pirates now and I'm currently Rank 5 using almost this deck exclusively, with a little bit of Miracle Rogue and Jade Druid games in there but like 90% this deck.

    Yeah I think um Murloc Tidehunter might be a better fit, it's a cheap small Murloc and I think it would do a good job at trading better with Pirate decks, which seems to be this decks only weakness.

    Nice! Yeah I've actually been having a lot of fun with this deck as well, it's surprising how well it can curve out sometimes. Plus you've gotta love using Divine Favor against Reno decks ;)

    Weird! On my screen it's showing just fine between Swipe and Nourish. Is it still not working for you? I can talk to our admins about it.

    Yeah I've seen some fun with Beardo but 1. I don't own one yet, so I still have to craft him, and 2. This deck needs more cheap spells and probably Emperor Thaurissan to use him properly. Stuff like Holy Smite and Circle of Healing or other small spells works best, I think my current deck has too much high cost stuff.
  • Gadgetzan Brews: Jade Rogue N’Zoth
    12/07/2016
    It's not really "beneficial" but more like necessary to fit the cards required. I mention it on another comment below but this deck is basically two decks combined right now, N'Zoth Rogue and Jade Rogue. If we want to fit all the Miracle pieces we end up having to remove way too much of one or the other to make it a fully synergetic deck. I had Counterfeit Coin in an earlier version but just like Preparation you don't get full effect unless you're running Gadgetzan Auctioneer because accelerating is okay and all but it's not what this deck does. I'm very minion heavy and also I run the Undercity and Swashburglar for the same reason, it's how we stop the early game aggro decks of Pirate Warrior and Pirate Shaman. The minions trade well and also give us free cards to mess around with. Swashburglar can probably be taken out but he does a good job of starting combos for Jade Shuriken and Eviscerate since we don't run Preparation.

    Shadowcaster was an idea but I only own 1 and haven't had much practice with them so I didn't bother trying. Also Brann isn't in the deck which Shadowcaster combos really well with. I think Cairne and Sylvanas are worth taking out, even though they're really powerful Deathrattles and great to copy, they come out slow and can probably be replaced with more early game control.
  • Gadgetzan Brews: Jade Rogue N’Zoth
    12/07/2016
    Yeah I've seen Mistress helping Reno decks so I was thinking about giving them a try instead of Swashburglar. Defender seems good to go with the Deathrattle abuse. The problem with going Pirate is that the deck is already 2 archetypes and had to give up Miracle Rogue in order to make Jade Rogue fit, it's currently N'Zoth Rogue + Jade Rogue and adding in pirates would mean taking out one of those pieces.

    I know, it doesn't look good but let me clear up a few things. Most of those matches were during the first revisions of the deck which had slower stuff like Tomb Pillager and things like Counterfeit Coin which didn't really help much against Pirates. Adding stuff like Swashburglar and also focusing on getting Taunt Deathrattles from Journey Below help the deck against Pirates but it's still a pretty big problem. I'm testing out a Priest Reno Raza deck right now and I actually haven't fought against any Pirate Warrior so it's not as common as it was but it's definitely a weakness. And who knows, maybe someone has a better idea of cards they can put into this deck to fight the Pirate meta.

    Yep! I noticed this the other day when my friend was playing as N'Zoth Control Warrior and got his Cairne Entombed. Not sure if any other spells do this sort of effect, maybe Recycle but nobody uses that, haha.
  • Legends of Reddit: D0nkeyHS Reno Dragon Mage

    I said the same thing in the article :P I had a bad win rate but it was a fun deck to play. I advise people not to use this above Rank 10. Maybe he did play this to fool people but he did a great job then, because he has a screenshot of him using the deck and getting Rank 25 Legend so unless he got really really lucky, it's still a viable deck. I think with the right tweaks it could be strong, and the fact that it's not a commonly used deck will throw a lot of people off because most netdeck players won't know how to play something so random. A netdecker using midrange shaman knows how to mulligan and play correctly vs Tempo and Freeze mage but they lose to innovative decks like this if the right people are playing it. Thanks for reading though!
  • Quick Matchup Analysis – Beast Druid
    10/08/2016
    I could definitely see a spot for Fandral but he's more built for Control type decks. This deck wants to curve and aggro and a Fandral in your hand that you're waiting to use later on in the game might be taking the place of something useful that you could be using on Turn 2-4 and drop along with something else like an Enchanted Raven or something cheap. I might try out a version with Fandral though just to see how well he works with the minion choose both options, especially Druid of the Flame.

    Thank you! Part 2 will be interesting because of the nerfs coming. I can't play OTK Worgen anymore so the deck is going to change to Freeze Mage, haha. Lots of changes for Part 2!

    Thanks for that catch! Yeah the stuff we type the articles in has a problem with quotation marks when you copy/paste from another thing like Word. Apparently it didn't like the apostrophe in C'thun so I had to redo it. Good find! You earned 2 Fireflyer points.* *Points cannot be redeemed for anything.

    09/21/2016
    Happy to share your work with others :) Yeah the biggest change for me was adding Menagerie Magician. The extra 2 attack you get from it is like using Abusive Sergeant on some of your smaller minions like one of the 1/1 dragons, turning it into a 3/3 that trades much better with something else. Zoobot is better for the tempo but when it comes to finishing a match, the Magician was a much better finisher. Hope to see more stuff from you on Reddit! :P

    Yeah I would say try it without Vilefins but they are so useful. It's nice when your opponent clears your board and you're able to at least hero power before you drop Zoobot or Menagerie Magician. Selfless Hero might be okay for now?

    I never really noticed an issue or else I probably would have added more back into the deck. When I played it I never had much trouble but let me know if it becomes an issue for you! Maybe I was just lucky.
  • Legends of Reddit: Thieving Yogg Priest

    Yeah against aggro you really need to get an good Excavated Evil off or set up for a Priest of the Feast with a couple spells to get back your initial health loss. You also may want to try Auchenai Soulpriest/Embrace the Shadow + Circle of Healing. This board wipe handles most threats because it hits 4 health and with Embrace the Shadow you can do it as early as Turn 2. Embrace/Circle also give you spells for your Priest of the Feast to trigger and give you life back. I used these cards back in an older Priest control deck that Kibler was running but I couldn't find the spots for it in this version. I would personally take out Mind Vision for Circle of Healing and the Holy Novas (since you're putting in more board wipe) for Auchenai Soulpriest since it's a body and better than Embrace. I would also find a spot for the Embrace though by taking out Mindgames and Shadow Madness probably, since Shadow Madness is mostly used to take one of their early aggro minions and trade it with another to get slight board control. Those cards will probably help you a lot if you're facing too much aggro.

    Oooh that's very true. Moonglade Portal has been quite a nuisance when fighting druids and druids also have a lot of minion creation spells like Living Roots and Power of the Wild, as well as token generators, I could definitely see it as a viable build. I might give it a try today ;)
  • Legends of Reddit: Abar’s Y’Shaarj Combo
    09/06/2016
    I've played Lock n Load in Yogg n Load, the reason it's good in that deck is because it adds spells for Yogg and replaces the other cards with value. In this deck, you need damage dealing spells in place of it so you can keep it as an aggro deck, rather than a control deck. That's one of the key things to remember when playing this deck, it's very much aggro and needs to be treated that way instead of saving spells to control minions. The original deck builder also tried it and I'm reading his comments on it right now, he said it clutters up his hands and that the deck isn't about card advantage but rather about putting the opponent's life total to zero. So basically the same idea as I had. xD That doesn't mean you shouldn't try it for yourself if you can find a slot for them and enjoy the card.
