Who in the guild has a hearthstone account and would like to play a match or two? I'm also curious about what strategies or deck compositions people are using. If they want to share of course. :)

You have my ID, and I'm currently running a murloc shaman deck and a miracle rogue deck.  Working on Divine paladin ATM.

Since the most recent patch, I've been enjoying my Mage deck once again. :) I honestly didn't like how it played before. Now you really need to get minions involved, and it's great! This is what I've put together so far. I had to modify the first one once I hit rank 19 a little in order to stop losing so much. lol. Been a fun couple of days!


Deck 1 - Rank 25 to Rank 19

Deck 2 - Made it to Rank 18!

I'll play (Firemane#1996). I'm still tinkering with my Mage deck since Blizzard caved to the whiners about Pyroblast. But, hey, I'm not bitter.


Mage spell decks were at about a 48% win rate according to published stats, i.e. balanced, which is why I have a problem with the nerf. Their only real reason for it amounted to "Pyro feels cheesy to other players." Not that it actually WAS cheesy, just that it felt that way. If they continue to base their decisions on what the vocal portion of the community considers "fun," I fear Hearthstone will not have a long future. 


What I don't like about forcing players into minion decks is that the list of viable neutral minions is relatively short. Yeah, the Mage burn deck was pretty monotonous, but no more so than Harvest Golem > Shattered Sun Cleric > Dark Iron Dwarf >Defender of Argus > Argent Commander, over and over and over and OVER again.


Anyway, like I said, I'm still tinkering with the Mage deck. Wild Pyromancer is showing some promise in combo with cheap spells and enrage minions, and Mirror Image + Young Priestess is giving rush decks a few problems.


Two cards I'm thinking of crafting are Doomsayer and Vaporize. Vaporize was a crappy secret two months ago, but the meta seems to be shifting toward big minions so it's becoming more likely that Vaporize will bag a fatty, or at least give an opponent pause before swinging into you with a Molten Giant. And Doomsayer + Frost Nova against a big board would be awesome.


The downside of course is that those are expensive cards, but we'll see how it goes with packs, maybe I'll get some good stuff to DE or just get lucky and actually pull one of those cards.


I'd like to build a secrets-centric deck too, those are a lot of fun.

I don't play anymore.  Ever since a few patches ago, I've found that the higher you get the more Paladin Taunt/Divine shield decks you face, and that's not fun.

I find that I drop it for a few days, pick it back up again, play a few matches, and then drop it for a few days again. I think I'll play it a lot more once they make it available on Android, but until then...periodically at best. :)

Still, I rather enjoy the game. Tonight I've played a number of matches with my Mage deck, and have been pwn'ing quite handily. Love it! (Pyroblast was so worth the Dust spent on it.)
