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

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? :(

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

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
