grettings icy veins!
want to share a new funny deck xD
Bite weed 8/8 turn 3? we got this!
i'm going to try a FULL GIANT rogue deck. due to Mimic Pod and Thistle Tea we can stack up and tech also for another type of GIANT , while we tech for the standard giant Arcane Giant , using the two cards above we can also tech for : Mountain Giant
while we tech for giants we will fullfill the board with tougher Edwin VanCleef and Biteweed.
Here it is the list without Mountain Giant because i have to craft and test it.
Counterfeit Coin x2
Bladed Cultist x2 (not sure... it can be swapped with everything you want)
Jade Shuriken x2 (this really can summon a 4/4 without any other jade cards. events , this deck is randomized events)
Mimic Pod x2
Fan of Knives x2
Edwin VanCleef x1
Sherazin, Corpse Flower x1 (we do not run much creatures in the deck , but mid late we play lots of cards. LOTS i mean LOTS of cards.)
Vilespine Slayer x2
Thistle Tea x2
Arcane Giant x2
This is actually winning against hunter face decks.
Mulligan --> just search spells. SHIV got priority over everything. hero power too. (not always)
Hi all ! , this is my first post on Icy Veins , I'm ORO , and i play only ROGUE since 2 years on Heartstone.
I want to share with this community my new Rogue Deck. it's pretty Similar to other decks played around , but it has some Variety and situational Cards that noone is playing , and that are helping me a lot.
I don’t want to play those “charge” cards. Because if u fail the first hit , you have lost , and also you have no chance of backup or comeback drawing next card
Never start questing on a creature that will give you problems , or you know you will be slower than enemy.
If you will use this deck you can also be competitive versus long range decks.
Elementals are way better than pirates , and you agro so much that you won’t need SAP , you also can quest on glacial shards , usefull versus Hunter and Warrior. A LOT.
I would like also to explain after every cards , why i use this , and the situaions.
Shadowstep x2 [edit15:35 , sorry for the lapsus]:
Just NEED that for the combo.
casting quest at 2 mana. AoE Dmg with Thalnos and Fan of knives . USEFULL to cast ENEMY spells that you steal with Swashburglar.
good to cast the core with 2 mana , nice with fan of knives. nice with Vanish.
The Caverns Below x1
It does not need explain. it's a quest deck :)
[edit 19/04] TRICK : you can play it as a combo. example : 2nd turn order --> The Coin --> Preparation --> The Caverns Below --> Edwin VanCleef . we got a 6/6 down and we sure gain some time. pretty a small all in of the deck. this trick let you play aggressive in the early turns , and this deck DON'T play aggressive in the early 4 turns.
Fire Fly x2
you can go late game with this. or quest at third turn. it can easily let you have 5 creatures down on 4th turn = 25 dmg on the 5th turn.
Do you still have Swashburglar in your hand and Patches in the deck ? a coin ? :)
Swashburglar x 2
this is unpredictable , it can steal worst cards , or best cards. sometimes best cards are not the best cards of the specific Match you playing. I call it a knife with a double cut side. sometimes it fulls your hand with cards that you won't use at all or you don't need . it's can be the salvation , or you are just wasting mana.
Patches the Pirate x1
i use it early only in critical situations , where my enemy is a strong face deck. Face Deck that love to have creatures alives to buff them. i really prefer to use it like a "surprise" of the last 5 dmg.
i Mean if you're playing only 2x Swashburglar you can probably keep it in the deck for all the game.
Always good , because also you put out a card from your deck. using his perk it's like drawing a card
Glacial Shard x2
ok , you may go in combo with this. when? you have to predict it. realy usefull in many games against aggro NoFace decks. sometimes let me play 2 more turns , taking no dmg.
[edit 19/04] wow , awesome card. counter this Swamp King Dred , and go on on your questing ? NICE , AND TASTY , NOT ?
Youthful Brewmaster x2
NEED FOR QUEST
Gadgetzan Ferryman x2
NEED FOR QUEST
Bloodmage Thalnos x1
Really need to be played with Fan of Knives , you don't play it? every face aggro will (probably) destroy you with those stupid 1/2 , 2/3 , or 3/2 stuff.
when it's the only option on the 2nd turn just play it. never keep it for too long in your hand.
Novice Engineer x2
BEST CARD FOR QUEST. Draw is better than everything. we got also counters in the deck.
Edwin VanCleef x1
Emergency , play it before quest only in emergencies. you can double shadowstep him at turn 5. or it becomes really BIG played after the quest completion. because the quest make it 5/5 while he is in your hand.
ALERT! : if you are going to play the quest in the next turn , and Edwin is an 8/8 for Example , you can use the quest to heal him after he attacked a provoke creature , or something else dangerous.
Fan of Knives x2
Good with Thalnos , with preparation , i prefer this , to Mimic Pod Deck and "dmg" cards like :Counterfeit Coin , Deadly Poison , Sinister Strike , Eviscerate ,Jade Shuriken , I can say that Mimic Pod made me Lose much more of Win. i think it's a card for a miracle deck (Mimic Pod....)
Ironbeak Owl x1
Usefull , better then SAP. NICE VERSUS PRIESTS , PALADINS , sometimes it can be used for the quest.
sometimes you can silence the heavy provoke creatures of the warrior. he got a slower deck , so you can play the owl for the quest.
Gluttonous Ooze x1
Just will save your ASS against WARRIOR , PALADINS , ROGUE , Hunters.
Igneous Elemental x2
let's take two more elementals 1/2 , usefull for questing , and mid/late range aggro. anyway good to be played with the coin in your 2nd turn.
Eater of Secrets x1
if you want to rank up with this deck , you have to play counter creatures. you don't know if in your next game , you will lose just because of a double Ice Block. remeber you can play it many times sapping it in your hand , and with just 4 mana you dispel ALL the secrets that the enemy had played before. Tempo mage is a pain in the ass. or Just Ice Block is most broken card in the game? I don't know , I just have to dispel those secrets to win certain games . Also usefull versus Hunters , less Versus Paladins because their secrets are not so much dangerous for you.
Sherazin, Corpse Flower x1
it just revives , and revives , while you are questing/sapping Fire Fly/Swashburglar/Glacial Shard etc etc...
[edit 19/04] this is revealing a really good card. you can play the Vanish card as the fourth one that revives him. result : every creature go **** and Sherazin, Corpse Flower stay down alive. quite a good trick.
you can use it with all the creatures you have. the 1/1 after questing , it's a 5/5 :)
[edit 19/04] this is revealing too a good option , also for a 2x , Reasons: 1. you can copy your quest creature , 2. you can copy another shadow caster so you can chain themselves to get a full table of shadowcasters , and also you have a 4/4 before quest the completion. maybe the solution is to play Shadowcaster...x2 ? and put out the Youthful Brewmaster , so we can play Biteweed ? this is a good card you can play it 6/6 at the first turn (only if you got The Coin
Finally we got some use with Vanish! you can close the quest with this. or deal 5 more dmg with Patches the Pirate , or get back all your Fire Fly /Swashburglar. Good also to Clean the table , and aggro back taking a turn advantage. if u have many fire flyes down , the enemy won't aggro more than you , because his tougher creatures cost more than 1 mana. just use as last option against murloc decks , quest priest , quest warrior , quest hunter. you have one , play it wisely. maybe for a close combo with Patches the Pirate , but it must an ending game , last 5 dmg for the win. in the early with Preparation can be a good option if you are not drawing cards...
I don't play other pirates like Southsea Deckhand because of : Golakka Crawler and because i don't want an all-in deck , i want a durable and versatile deck.
I don't play Stonetusk Boar because i don't want an all-in deck , i want a durable and versatile deck.
I don't play Eviscerate or other Removals , because i need creatures down. no more.
List of suggested Cards that can synergyze good too and do tricky stuff ***not mentioned in the full deck above***
Wild Pyromancer (you can do the surprise trick with The Caverns Below to get an earl 1 dmg , good combo versus Face Hunters)
Lorewalker Cho (can work inside a "no-spells" deck, but every creature you play must do something. you should play creature that do what spells do)
I hope you will like it , we can discuss every choice i made about this. For the moment it's a rank 13 confirmed , but people it's starting to play counter decks , and this is more difficult.
This is weak versus tempo freezing quest mage , face hunters , and warriors that got the right quest deck with the right cards.
probably weak versus every face deck around. probably if u play pirate versione you lose much because of just 3/4 provoke creatures.
i'm open to advices by more experienced players :3
 updating while i wait some admin approve it :D
Hi guys. I got this idea from a thread on reddit talking about how players "share" the challenge a friend quest to double the gold earning by finding players on discord who have the same quest and playing against them so both players get 160g. My innitial thought was how to filter out people who may pretend to have the same quest to get the 80g, without the actual quest owner getting an extra 80g in return. I don't know if there are people like that out there, but I feel icy-veins being a more closely knit community, would inherently keep such people at bay. We can have a thread for each region and people can edit their posts once they have found someone and completed the quest.
I thought this would be a nice way for people who don't have rl friends playing the game to find new friends to share gold with. Plus it doubles the gold you earn from that particular quest. I think many people would be interested in getting max gold before Un'goro hits. I don't know if icy-veins policy allows for this or not so I thought I'd ask what you guys thought about this?
TL;DR: I'm mostly behind the curve each xpansion period in terms of being able to play certain decks. If I wait till year of mamoth I may miss out on experiencing certain decks which are viable right now but need specific legendaries like patches, Aya and finja. Craft now to enjoy these decks, or be smart and get ahead of the curve come next xpac. Esp. since there will be no more adventures making it harder to collect the cards.
So, I'm done buying more MSG packs since I reset my pity counter. The only meta cards I got were Kazakus and priest legendary. I haven't seen warlock legendary used much so that will sit idle until it becomes viable.
Now i don't have patches or Aya or finja. Normal logic would tell me that its one month to new xpac so might as well wait for that and then spend my dust on cards which are still strong after Un'goro. But I'm starting to get tired of never being able to try various decks because I couldn't get all the important cards from an expac when they were still relevant. If I wait for next xpac, I would never have had the experience of trying patches pirate decks, or be on the other side of the "screw aya" conversation. OR try a completely different style of rogue play with finja.
The question is, is it worth it to craft any of those crafts right now or is it better to just play casually this month and go all out next xpac!
I have 6500 dust readily available and another 15000 available if i disenchant my extra cards (which i dont like doing because nerf value)
Also worth mentioning i'm still missing some key classic legendaries like alex, ysera, cairne, grommash, blood mage thalnos...
My fav classes are Rogue, mage, warlock, but i play all classes based on what their play style is currently.
