Icy Veins Hearthstone Crafting Guides Updated

Recommended Posts

11037-icy-veins-hearthstone-crafting-gui

 

Over in our Hearthstone section, you will find a specific guide for each class on card crafting - which options you should prioritize as you build out your collection to ensure you can take advantage of the strongest and most versatile deck archetypes from that class. All nine have been recently updated!

 

The crafting guides are listed in our Hearthstone section, and available here:

 

Druid

Hunter

Mage

Paladin

Priest

Rogue

Shaman

Warlock

Warrior

 

In addition to looking at the class-specific cards (including new Goblins vs. Gnomes cards), these guides will also identify relevant neutral and Curse of Naxxramas cards that you may wish to include in your decks for those classes.

 

Check out the updated guides and let us know what you think!

Very nice improvement to the crafting guide; it's good to see the best cards for each ranking for the classes.  On a related note, is there any chance of getting a strictly neutral ranking list?  It'd be nice to see how, say, Sylvanas and Dr. Boom compare across all the classes if I'm trying to decide where to spend my dust.

The problem with that is that it's so meta dependant, it would change on an almost daily basis. The top 1-3 would probably be fairly consistent, but the rest of the list would fluctuate so heavily based on what the strong decks are.

Just to answer your question though, I would slightly favour Dr. Boom, but not as much as many people would have you believe, especially if you're looking to play Control decks. Dr. Boom is kind of replaceable as a late-game threat in Control Decks, but Sylvanas is just such a unique and powerful effect that it's hard to replicate. As mentioned in the guide though, if you're low on card in general, spending 1600 dust on a combination of Rares and Epics will probably improve your decks more than just slamming a Legendary in them.

That's an understandable point; it must be hard enough figuring out the best cards for each class at any given time, let alone trying to determine which are the stand-outs in the game as a whole.  Still, even seeing a list of those solid top 1-3 cards would be kind of nice; as someone without much experience on the ladder, who hasn't really settled on a class and/or deck style, knowing what is considered a solid crafting choice for multiple classes would be nice.  (P.S. I'm not just trying to make more work for you, I promise; I'm genuinely curious.)

 

As for the Dr. Boom vs. Sylvanas issue, I see your points.  While Dr. Boom is a powerful play (particularly with those Boom Bots of his), Sylvanas is definitely a unique force that can change the entire way an opponent plays.  (She's certainly made me modify my plans in the past.)  All of that said, I'll probably spend my dust on Epics/Rares rather than go right for a Legendary; like you say, it'll probably do more to improve my deck(s) if I take that approach.

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.
