Why is Reno always showing up where he shouldn't?

7 posts in this topic

Was starting to get tired of losing to nothing but zoo locks and face hunters/shamans all day in ladder so I decided to play some face pirate warrior.

Literally, not figuratively, literally every deck I've faced since then has had a Reno in it. Control C'Thun Warrior? Reno. Burgle Rogue? Reno. Midrange Shaman? Reno. A Tempo Mage even had a damn Reno in it.

Without fail, every game, get someone to 2-8hp by turn 5. Immediately drop a Reno turn 6. I cant stand it. And I know the second I go back to playing control, all of my opponents will be zoo locks again.

Just like back in the day when every opponent was either a Mech Mage or a Secret Paladin. Stale meta is stale. Every game should not be won or lost on if the control deck draws a turn 5 board clear or the face deck can kill before turn 6. A good match used to feel like a game of chess but now its just seeing who has the better turn 5 topdeck.

I'm not sure how different our regions/ranks are, but I haven't seen a Reno outside of my own deck for the whole season. I don't play him much, only to test out a few Reno Priest decks now and then, but I am yet to run into one on my opponent's side.

Might just be bad luck? :(

Don't worry, that's just a bad moment to live through and then he'll rotate out.

With the largest standard card pool ever Reno will have a nice time. It will be much easier to get enough decent single copies.  Kazakus and Raza will make it even better choice. I expect a very Reno-heavy meta.  I'll need face decks that kill enemy before turn 6 :D

      YouTuber, Disguised Toast, is never far from the front of Hearthstone science, and his latest video is spectacular. This video investigates the strange interactions caused by Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle.
      Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle seems simple enough, it reads: Shuffle this minion into your opponent's deck. However, when tested by Disguised Toast, it turns out that even this simple looking text can result in rather odd results. The ordering of other Deathrattles on the board, and effects by other cards on Deathrattles is what makes it so unpredictable. Take a look for yourself!
      The fact your deck displays as full, no matter how many cards left, is probably the strangest interaction of all. Even Toast doesn't  attempt to describe how that one happens.

      Blizzard have updated the breakdown of the amount each gang's classes are being played.
      On their Gadgetzan page, there is an infographic showing who controls the town of Gadgetzan today. The percentages are worked out by how often each class is being used. Even with the huge amount of Pirate Warrior on ladder at the moment, the Grimy Goons are unable to control the city! That honour goes, currently, to the Kabal. With people having success with Reno Warlock AND Reno Priest, it will be fun to see if they hold that position in the coming days.

      So I got a lot of jade cards for druid and neutral in the 15-20 packs I've opened, and I wanted to make a jade druid deck, right? But I'm poor, so I look up "Jade Druid Budget Deck". I find one on this site with the following deck list:
       
      2x Innervate 2x Jade Idol MSG 2x Living Roots TGT 2x Raven Idol LoE 2x Wild Growth 2x Wrath 2x Feral Rage TOG 2x Jade Blossom MSG 2x Swipe 2x Nourish 2x Jade Behemoth MSG 2x Jade Spirit MSG 2x Azure Drake 2x Gadgetzan Auctioneer 2x Arcane Giant Kara But I don't have Raven Idol. Or nourish, though I can just craft that since it's in classic. So can anyone suggest an option for replacing the raven idols? I don't want to get all of League of Explorers just to play with it for a month then watch it turn to dust so I can craft other cards for decks in standard. I have one branch, but that's it. I was thinking maybe 1 jeweled scarab, though I know that card is frowned upon for reasons I've never been made aware of, for flexibility, and a loot hoarder for pure draw.
