Both sensible approaches. I made a load of Murlocs with all my dust and have been having fun playing with them, because my Jade deck was in sufficiently Jade due to not having the cards from the expansion.


I like Murlocs , I'm annoyed that old murc eye was retired last year - and Hearthy's Paladin deck with the 10 point re-incarnate all your dead murlocs was really fun to play with

That still works fine in Wild and is still competitive!

Whenever I get a Paladin quest I go over to Wild and play that deck.

Had a go with Control Mage last night as I've had a few VERY ANNOYING losses against it and it's always good to learn the tricks of your enemies.

Turns out it's an enjoyable deck to play, looking at the deck list you'd half wonder what its mechanism to win games (rather than just control them) actually is, but it's one of those decks that can just keep pulling value out of its arse or creating fresh value, and refusing to die, for a surprising amount of time.

Note that Eater of Secrets is a tech slot which can be replaced with stuff like Gluttonous Ooze or whatever you fancy against the decks you're facing. (I don't even have a Gluttonous Ooze and didn't fancy crafting one for a single tech slot in a single deck, Un Goro has been a punishing expansion dust wise and I'm down to 2000 dust, from a high of about 12000 IIRC. I guess you could put an Acidic Swamp Ooze in there instead, or even a Harrison Jones, although the deck doesn't really need more card draw.)

Its the spell 'face' damage late game that always does me in - i can have a full board to kill them but unless i get my eater of secrets they can do multiple damage each turn regardless of taunts or whatever else i have on the board.

I'm surprised there is not a Cabalist's Tome in there as thats a regular I see and they always bloody draw another high point damage spell from it or a spare ice block

Well new expansion is out

I was banking up my card packs for the change (so you don't get dupe legendaries and that the odds of pulling one will go up) so had about 30 'mixed' packs of the old cards and enough gold and freebies for around 40 packs of the new cards

From my old stuff i had 2 golden ledgendary cards almost back to back , a Grull and a Sunkeeper Tarim , and of course the only other legendary out the old packs was the damn rogues quest !

From the first 18 of my new packs I got :

Valeera the hollow (Rogue hero) - https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Valeera_the_Hollow
Scourgelord Garrosh (Warrior hero) - https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Scourgelord_Garrosh
Prince Keleseth- https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Prince_Keleseth

From the last 22 packs I got no Legendary cards :-)

I've got just over 12000 gold. I'll probably bust out 80 packs or so initially, which should be enough to get a decent spread of cards and enough duplicates to craft what's left that I need.

I'm not going to get carried away crafting the Death Knight cards though, the smart money (or gold...) there would be to wait for the meta to settle down a bit and see which ones turn out to be viable.

Remember there is also a solo adventure prologue and wing , I forgot :-)

I just did the prologue and got the Dark Knight Druid card (which seems to be the one everyone is whinging about)

9 legendaries including a golden Lich King in 100 packs. Not too shabby.

2450 worth of dust off the dupes, and a further 1000 or so dusting the goldens I already had two of.

Now to work out what decks are supposed to be worth playing.....

So I crafted the Liche King - and a few other smaller cards and have been playing Dark Knight Druid a lot over the weekend - it is a great deck against anything fast (because it throws out a *lot* of taunts) , my big problem with it seems to be fatigue as i'm pulling out all my cards and then its down to me to hit the last few points off the enemy.

Probably needs a bit of a rethink for some of the card draw options but it does make the game different , and has some really powerful cards (the 10 point - gain 5 armour / draw 5 cards / do 5 damage / put a 5/5 card on the board is a beast !)
