    I actually don't. Innervate at 1 instead of 2 crystals still means you're playing 2x 0 mana cards to speed up your game, so the actual number of card draw you'd want is still the same. You wouldn't cut UIs

    I think its an unique effect, despite me knowing it is very cool and probably nice to have around, I would actually prefer it to rotate. It probably causes more harm than good being around forever

    I helped myself in crafting an Garrosh (had to DE some spare golden classic epics though T_T) and I have to admit I noticed something similar: The skill level required to play this deck is pretty high.

    Two of the lists posted in this article ended up being 28/30 of 2 lists that reached #1 Legend. Woot woot (the druid -2 tar creeper +2 spreading plague, the paladin -2 truesilver +2 rallying blade)
  • KFT Fully Revealed! – First Impressions
    08/08/2017
    I need to correct myself here, 1/5+taunt is 7 but completely badly distributed, and the poison one is actually only 5, thats why my head thought "6", at any case, the 1/2 spider has high odds of not being relevant, and the taunt can easily die without generating any value. All in all I think its being overrated, but that doesnt necessarily mean its a bad card by any means.
  • KFT Fully Revealed! – First Impressions
    08/08/2017
    its not 7 stats, its 6 (1/5+taunt or 1/2+poison), I dont think its enough to see play :/
  • Let the Bets Begin: KFT Card Reviews!

    Hey Ben, just an update here! With the fully revealed expansion, I believe Sindragosa goes down to 2 in score.
  • Let the Bets Begin: KFT Card Reviews!
    08/01/2017
    Medivh is a 2 because it requires a deck built around it, or at least an specific deck to fit it. Sindragosa can be slammed in any variation of Control Mage without the need of adding extra high-cost cards. In Ghastly Conjurer I initially gave it a 5 because I saw about 10 reviews giving it a zero, so I raged. But honestly, after thinking about it longer I believe its still a 5. There is no current mage deck where you wouldnt want to run 2 of those, even on a deck you might not think it fits.

    interesting, I didn't watch the review so I missed it! Well pointed!

    I thought about it too but discarded it, because imo, its too much effort to make an useless card semi-useful

    7 is fine because you have a lot of other things to do and to play, you often keep alexs or ysera in your hand for a very long time as well. Most dragon priest decks are super aggressive so they need 8+ dragons, but here you usually have tons of cards in hand and a lot of things to play, so 7 is fine.

    She is fun and has a cool line (EMBRANCE THE POWER OF THE KABAL! *cool music playing in the back) Well, her power usually combos pretty well with Kazakus, but I wouldn't go as far as "needed". She changes your playstyle quite a bit (you always take 10-mana pots if youre not vs super aggro decks with solia because you play them for free)

  • Decks to Play – Potent First Lists – Warrior/Rogue/Priest!

    - Abomination is bad because you damage yourself AND your board. - Yeah Rogues playstyle is quite different from the other hearthstone classes in a possibly bad way - it is either OP or poopy, and blizzard hasnt changed the class at all in the last 2-3 years. This deck is fun though, mostly to ppl that arent too familiar with rogues and/or want different stuff to play. - Pirate warrior feels only amazing because ppl are playing such horrible decks like jade druid that are instant-win for pirate warriors, I believe that soon we'll all good back to midrange shaman.
  • Nuba Reviews MSG Cards – Part 7
    11/26/2016
    Didn't have much time to respond, only found time to do so now, but I'll be brief: I don't think the jade golem strategy will be a whole one, like C'Thun was for instance, I much rather believe they should exist to complement already existing strategies (like how well they fit in token druid). That is why I don't think a Jade Shaman is something viable or at least possible, and I would much rather just "4 mana 7/7" or "4 mana 3/4 + 1/1 ragnaros" than "4 mana 2/2 kill a weenie". If the strategy gets as good as you mentioned, then it becomes (YET AGAIN) a design problem, but at this point I am not quite sure blizzard can afford to fuck up yet again in design (competitive ppl are already quitting HS unless they're making a living out of it). If jade golem strategy becomes too good, then blizz fucked up and it becomes a whole new problem, so assuming it isn't as good as you might think, then it is just straight up complementary. I can't take blizzard's devs for making any kind of balanced strategy even if their lives depended on it - they either make super shit stuff, or complementary stuff, or OP stuff. Very rarely we see a balanced design like we saw with C'Thuns.

    I thought about it too, maybe it would be ok but you'd get out-tempo'd pretty often. its hard to say it without massive playtesting though. We don't even know how the meta will look like next month when the expansion hits

    yeah I thought about that too, will make an in-depth analysis of the cards soon
