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? :(

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 97th Tavern Brawl is called 'An Ancient Recipe' and it offers players the chance to try out Journey to Un'Goro decks.
      The rules of this Brawl are simple: you choose a hero and you get a premade deck with the Un'Goro deck recipe for that class. The deck archetypes are the following and we even have guides for most of them:
      Quest Druid Dinomancer Hunter Elemental Mage (guide for almost identical deck here) Quest Paladin Quest Priest Quest Rogue Elemental Shaman Quest Warlock Quest Warrior All deck recipes have pretty good winning chances. This is a nice chance to play with cards you don't own and get to know the new Hearthstone expansion better.
