Help With Ranked!

Ok so here's the deal: I've spent hundreds of dollars on hearthstone. I thought that if I had better cards, I'd be able to build better decks and climb to legend status in the ranked game mode. I look on icy veins and hearthpwn for decks, and copy them to a tee. I use the ones that say they can make it to legend. I've been playing A LOT, even with the "super" decks, but I still can't win. I can't make it past rank 18.

 

I heard that 18 was the hardest to pass, but I'm losing against people who I'm sure haven't spent as much money or time as me. It doesn't seem like the decks really matters. I realize it is a game of luck, but (as I'm sure you know) my decks are good for most situations.

 

Am I doing something wrong? I can detail my play style or add you on hearthstone or something. I desperately need help. 

 

A guide for what strategies to use, an actual good deck list, or anything else that you think may help would be greatly appreciated!

 

By the way, I play as druid mostly (my favorite) but I also like mage, then hunter, then warrior.

Then you are definitely doing something wrong, if you can't go past Rank 18. I've spent only 45 dollars on hearthstone for naxxramas and blackrock mountain and never bought a single pack with money. I made it to Rank 13 with Ramp Druid. Add me on hearthstone shadowdragon#12368 and I'll see if I can help. You should watch pros play the decks that you are playing on youtube. In general, each of the minions in the druid deck should take out at least 2 of the opponent's minions when trading before u let it die. Do this as much as possible and u won't lose board control unless ur opponent gets good removal. I run the legendary ramp deck here at icy veins. I can't tell u everything here, so you should friend me and play me. What part of the world are u in cuz if u live in like China then I will never get to play u because we will be 12 hours apart.

     It appears that you lack game knowledge, having many good cards and copying decks wont make you learn the game, if you do not know the basics. By basics i mean efficient trades, when to trade, when not to trade, game plan, playing to win, playing not to lose, when to gamble, playing around certain cards like aoes or single target removals etc.  You could spend thousands on the game, have all the cards, but if you don`t know the principles of the game, it`s pointless. Most people learn them by watching streams or reading articles about the game. You should have a look at these http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/mechanics-guideand http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/why-am-i-losing-in-hearthstone

As other threads have discussed, how you play is ultimately more important than the cards available to you. Even decks comprised entirely of beginner cards can get to the mid-to-early-teens in Ranked Mode. Icy Veins has some helpful beginner guides you could read (as do many other sites). After that it's a matter of practicing and getting better. You need to be very familiar and comfortable with your own deck, but you also need to be familiar with your opponents decks in order to anticipate their moves (something I still need to improve on myself). You must really enjoy the game to have spent so much money on it, so keep trying and have fun!

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
       
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
       
      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.

      Recruitment Officer:
      In game - Treylawny
      Battletag - Treylawny#1813

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565
