Worst deck ever waist of enchants

 

Could you please say why? I could call you the "Worst player ever, waste of time", but that would not lead anywhere, so I don't - and you shouldn't call our deck the worst ever either, unless you are willing to be constructive.

This deck is hard to play, especially since it's an OTK deck. I suggest you to give us a few replay, and I am pretty sure we will find some misplays in each of them.

I've had some pretty bad experiences with this deck. Winning only two out of 10 games (okay, maybe I missed lethal one time)...

My main issues were, that many cards are dead in your hand in the early- and midgame, because you need them for the OTK-combo (Pint-Size Potion, Divine Spirit, Potion of Madness...) . This is somewhat normal for combo-decks, but in this deck there are way to many cards, that can only be used in combination and are bad on there own.

Then I had issues with opposing big minions. Without Shadow Word: Death it seems nearly impossible to remove a Ragnaros the Firelord or something like that.

And on top of it all the metagame seems not very suited for this deck. Okay, its pretty good against Reno-Decks, but you are in a bad spot against Ice Block. Aggressive Decks are mostly to fast and it deals not enough damage vs control-Warrior.

 

But hey, I give it that: its a somewhat fun deck to play and seems sometimes pretty challenging not missing lethal.

Well, that's the deck's supposed to be - as the guide says, "it is intended to be played as a fun deck and is not suitable for a competitive environment."

That's what the swap section is for - "Kabal Talonpriest or Loot Hoarder can be swapped out for copies of Shadow Word: Death or Shadow Word: Pain if required."

You don't always want to buff you highest health minion as suggested. Sometimes buffing a minion with a larger gap between attack and hp is better. For example, if you have a 4/5 and a 1/4 on the other side of the board. Djinni + potion + divine + inner fire results in 23 damage if you buff the 4/5 but 24 damage if buff the 1/4.

I sometimes play a similar list. Like mill and some other decks there is a learning curve. It is neither a great deck nor as bad as some people claim, but it is a lot of fun for me. I'm not willing to grind the ladder every month with how bad the reset is and how long it takes, so I just play whatever is fun and maybe grind to rank 5 if I happen to get close enough.

In some cases, yeah. The guide does say you should buff the minion with highest health, but at the same it says in the same paragraph "To handle all the possibilities, it is important to keep track of how much damage you are able to deal at any one time." I will let Pesty know about it and let him decide. Thanks for the input.

(Also, even in the case you mentioned, having two Divine Spirits would make buffing the 4/5 (though the doesn't run any) better, which makes it even more complicated to describe it in a different way than "To handle all the possibilities, it is important to keep track of how much damage you are able to deal at any one time.")

win ratio = 1 win out of 10 games, very inconsistent deck, no removals, if the opponent cast a minion with taunt (worse if he plays two of them) you're doom with out any chance of win, waste of dust

The introduction states that the deck "is intended to be played as a fun deck and is not suitable for a competitive environment.", so I am not really sure what you expected. Also, the deck is quite complicated, and I am pretty sure you made some misplays that lost you a few games.

Hi, I was trying to have fun with this deck, but the charge isn't working on Djinn anymore with potion of madness... I am so sad... Is it a temporay bug or do you have the same ?

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
