What puts Dr Boom in Tier 2? And also for a hunter do you not value Leeroy Jenkins a bit more? :)

Great post as always Sottle! Love looking through these kind of things :D

Dr Boom is Tier 2 not because he's any weaker in Arena than he is in Constructed, all the Tier 2 Legendaries are still insanely good, but instead because other cards are stronger. In Constructed, Rag gets punished by BGH, Ysera is often too slow against finely tuned fast decks etc. These limitations don't really exist in Arena, so the cards are higher value, pushing Dr. Boom down a little.

Leeroy, eh, I debated it. I do value it a little higher in Hunter, but not really enough to move it up a tier. You still just want cards you can play on curve each turn and keep Tempo, you never want to be holding dead cards in your hand in Arena if it can be avoided.

Silent Knight 2 tiers above Argent Horserider for hunter? I agree that by default silent knight is a better card, but not for hunter. They work kind of the same way, the only difference is that silent knight has 1 more hp but lacks charge, which is important turnoff for hunter which are mostly agresive. You should really consider revaluation of neutrals depending on class, because currently you just assign really accurate default value for neutral cards, and if it suits particular class you just advance it by 1 tier, which is not enough in many cases imho.

You can't consistently draft aggro decks. This is why Hunter is the second worst arena class. The worst being Warrior, you can see that hero powers are important and they both have hero powers that don't affect the board at all. 

Not only has Silent Knight one health more, which really helps against hero powers, it also has stealth and you can play it on an empty board.

The changelog says you added Explorer's Hat to tier 6, but it's not actually there. Iluminator is also missing, as is Twilight Drake. These are my first three options.. not much help.

Thanks for the guide. Got 0-3 on first use.

You haven't read all of the arena guides. Hunter is among the three worst heroes in our Arena Guide. Picking it was a mistake. Then, I am definitely sure you made misplays. Provide please replays to see whether the fault is on our side, or on yours.

Nice, I got 12-0 with my last Hunter. I wonder if there might be other factors.

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.

      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival.
