Grats @Rehio!

Un'Goro is so far shaping to be the best expansion, quest rogue aside.

Moreover, this week's brawl is honest to god great and fun. Not gimmicky at all, presenting you with fully fledged decks that make use of new mechanics and don't rely on super aggro, super control or any other extreme like most decks we usually see. Un'goro archetypes, etc.

I'm floating between 2 and 3 and trying to decide if I want to push for legend or no.

I'm busy the next week or two, but...

Hmm climbing the ladder after this reset has brought me up against a bunch of agroo druids. So far 10-0. It's such a strange deck, lose board once and you're done. Why is it so damn popular? Midrange hunter appears to be just as cheap and far more effective.

It's popular because it's the direct counter to quest rogues, which is why those have reduced in number.

Isn't hunter the same? I haven't lost against a quest rogue with it, though not like I'm high on ladder so maybe they're just bad.

Hunter counters quest rogue as well, yeah, but it loses out to some of the other popular decks more than aggro druid does.

Aggro Druid has a lot of different openings that create an instant loss for the opponent, like Innervate + Fledgling that can end the game on turn two. Even if you get a bad opening or are beaten early, Living Mana provides an instant swing turn that brings you back into the game and can win it straight out if your opponent doesn't have a counter available.

There's also a bit of a bonus in that Druid has two popular archetypes with Jade Druid coming back into play, and both require completely separate mulligans to face. You get the potential advantage of your opponent preparing to face the exact opposite of your planned style.

I just had the funniest game in 3 years of hearthstone. I'm playing Exodia mage, priest opens with double light well and priest of the feast, next turn he follows up with a soulpriest.

So I ping the POTF. It dies next turn. Turn after that I ping his face and freeze the board. He was helpless as the lightwells fireballed his face each turn.

Finally on turn 9 he drew a circle and cleared his board, but by then he was on 1 HP. I drew glpyh into fireball on that turn and won. I was literally laughing out loud by the end.

He did not accept my friend request.

Why would you dump the Soulpriest on the board when you have Lightwells up? Or a PotF, for that matter. That just seems stupid.

My improvised-for-a-quest Evolve Shaman might not win consistently vs stuff like Quest Rogue, but damn if it isn't fun to just devolve a board full of taunts when the Warrior goes wide.

Has the meta stabilized back to agrro decks? The last 3 days I have gotten nothing but pirate warrior, aggro druid and rush versions of hunter.

Not that I've played too much. I quit rather quickly after facing 3-4 aggro decks in a row.

First: lol, wait until you go against quest rogue.

Second: not really? Pirate won't stop being strong until it loses cards. You can run Golaka Crawler, but that just makes it an issue of having it in hand or not.

Midrange Paladin, control mage/priest, jade druid, freeze mage, taunt warrior, n'zoth pally and silence priest are all v strong too. That's just off the top of my head.

I saw plenty of those climbing, but now at rank five it's been nothing but aggro. Like the same 3-4 decks for close to a week now.

In arena at 5 wins 2 losses, Paladin does a smugglers run on turn 6 to buff his entire hand(6 cards). I'm shitting my pants at this stage, until the 9/9 Hydra comes out.

Volcano for lethal next turn.
