So I've been playing DK Valeera of the jade variety a bit and that is a very fun deck to play - currently climbing to rank 13 to my surprise.
I've beaten DK control priest, DK elemental mage and DK dead man's hand warrior.

The trick to make it work is to transform when you can follow up with Vanish + Doomsayer + SR Doomsayer to guarantee a clear board on your turn and after that you just pace yourself with massive value plays, very unrogue-like

In the priest and mage games I actually got their respective DK's but swapped them out for Valeera just a few turns after ebcause of how underwhelming they were

Actually with how many cheap spells Rouge can have Priest DK hero power isn't that bad for the class

@minion
I'm running a similiar deck. BTW your deck name is genius

EDIT: Another wing is available. And it was a breeze. Lanathel was laughably easy. I don't know if she has some OP cards but if yes, then she didn't draw them. Putricide was a bit more tricky but I've beat him with the same DS Paladin deck. Nice touch with the transformations though. Finally Sindragosa is tricky, but Priest DK hero power came in handy to finish her. Damn I didn't know it refreshes after each card is played (not only spells). This is so OP...

It was indeed a breeze, Putrizide got close I was down to 5Hp. To Sindragoza I lost once but I used a mage deck second time and won. I think the AI in that one is silly though because it never trades, even when I have lethal on board - just goes face.

Lich King had some really funny lines though Sadly I can't remember any now anymore. Dangit.

This new wing had some fun mechanics, but it was pretty easy. Lanathel was so easy that I wonder if they made a mistake with her?
Putri. I had down after two tries. He was really fun, loved that he had phases which meant you needed to think (!)
Sindragosa. Damn it. Took me a while. I went with a C'thun warrior and I just didnt draw the much needed cards. She was a challenge imo.

People are really creative. Although the fact I didn't play Hunter this expansion didn't push me to think about card interactions, but a card like Toxic Arrow (which didn't impress me) finds some really nice uses. Shot an Acolyte of Pain for double draw and removal (Hunters draw problem). Shot a Barron Geddon for a full board clear (board clear is also a problem for Hunter). Too bad I don't have Geddon, a card which really shines this expansion...

Trolden-moment

Playing Evolve shaman. I have full board. Ready to overpower my opponent. I play DK-Thrall! The boards turns into an insane powerhouse, but wait what is that my eye beholds. An Unlicensed Apothecary. He deals 18 dmg to my face because apparrently evovling is the same as summon.

I had 5 hp + 5 armor. My opponent 2 hp.

Well **** me right..

I got it from a pack. Tried it a bit but the drawback is too big for the potential benefits it might give. I don't know if the card was made with control in mind, but it obviously does not work in zoo/aggro where I would see it (tried it in both deck styles, it sucks).

Druid is a funny class. Why I don't play Hearthstone too much nowadays so I don't feel it's domination in the meta, but from what I read it's currently a problem. With UI and some other new cards it got the missing pieces.

It's funny how the class is in a parable: at times it's not played and shunned. At times it's criticized of being too slow or that it does not have enough answers/removals. But once in a while there comes a deck that makes playing the game against it really frustrating. I remember the famous FoN + SR combo for instance. Savage Roar is still an irritating card in Token Druid.

The point of me saying this is that I think Team 5 should react for the meta faster. It would make the game simply healthier. We're not talking about some incredible day-to-day changes. But when a card reaches a point where even respected streamers show their concern (for instance recent Reynad clip about Innervate) they should really react quicker...

EDIT: I simply love how this expansion kicks me in the balls for how lucky I was with Un'Goro. Here's my 30th 'uber pack' since Benedictus:



PS: Rattling Rascal is my second duplicate Epic already, and I opened an overall incredible amount of 8 Epics this expansion. No words...

Can you tell what part about druid that is imbalanced atm?

I do acknowledge that druid is atm dominating the meta. But is it because of jades, innervate or ultimate infestation?

As I see it is not because of this expansion alone. I see it as a progression. The last few expansions have given them some great tools and they have now found the means to utilize them probably.

And then it sadly falls at a time where no other classes can compete with that class.

I am just not smart enough to figure out how to balance this out.

It is all of them. Druid cards just make the perfect mix.

You know I just had a game where my turn 5 I played my strongest possible card as Warlock - an 8/8 Mountain Giant. I had to sacrifice all of my early game for that. And my opponent the Druid was at 10 mana and played a 3/6 Jade Behemoth summoning a 7/7 Jade Golem. + something like Tar Creeper. UGH!

Druid can push out such big minions so fast. What do they normally have to sacrifice? Card draw so their hand is empty by turn 6 or so. But alas they can draw million cards more because by turn 6 they have 10 mana and they cast Ultimate OPness. And from there on their Jades are even bigger and harder to deal with.

Maybe Innervate should go to Hall of Fame because it certainly "limits design space" which is what they hate, oh well, there is only 40% Druid on the ladder so maybe we can manage

But where should they start to change druid? Innervate? I think changing that would ruin druid. Ahh I dont know! It is too hard.

Seen the new animated short. Pretty good looking. Very childish, but I was entertained.

EDIT:
Brawl-pack gave me Deathwing!

Innervate is identified as being one of the bigger problems currently as it ramps UI. They can either move it to Hall of Fame (the most probable scenario) or change it to sth like 'Refresh two of your Mana Crystals' instead of the current effect (as one player suggested).

Short was nice, but while I'm kind of a fan of animated movies this somehow really made me turn my eyes around. Too Pixarish (meaning they've practically copied the style), and it's so sweet it makes you wanna bleed your eyes out. I'm a bit of afraid with the casual approach Blizzard is taking these days. A few years back they made more serious and dark games. They really changed. Well, they still make great games and I like their lore, but there's too much of this 'for-all-audience' stuff in it. But this is of course my point of view. Heartshtone has a different target and was always advertised as a laid-back game but still... I like when it's less kiddy-friendly.

BTW I still haven't decided what to craft for my remaining dust. I'm really satisfied with Lich King and Priest DK, but I wonder if meta has clarified which Legendaries from the set are worth crafting still...

I dislike how uneven the class specific obstacles are. The fights are tough for every class but while Mage gets health reduced to 1 if you don't mulligan Kabal Lackey + Counterspell, and at the same time Priest has only it's emotes disabled (even if it's some kind of dev joke this is very unfair to other classes).

Funny thing that I needed one fight to win against the LK boss with Jade Druid. It was a breeze. This only shows Jades are really OP right now.

BTW do you guys think Druid DK is craft worthy? And not just because the class is at it's peak nowadays... I think he's quite a solid DK all round and can be used in most Druid decks while other DK's are mostly deck specific (Jaina, Gul'Dan etc)... what are your thoughts, should I craft him?

EDIT: Managed to unlock Arthas. It was a semi-enjoyable expierience. Some battles were exciting and tight, some were a drag (I needed to restart games just to get the perfect draw vs. AI having bad draws). At least the prize is somewhat more reasonable then in past adventures...

I can fit druid dk in every druid dk tbh. It's a good allrounder that fills the awkward 7 mana slot for druid. But I avoid 'meta' decks. All i play with druid is huge ramp druid with the deathwings, ysera, lich king yshaarj etc. Even fits there!

And i'm okay with the class differences, everyone should be able to get the pack, but arthas should be a challenge.

Sctually finished it all within a day, only hunter and pally gave me some problems

So I crafted Malfurion DK. I don't play Jade this much but I need a deck that let's me grab some wins in the meta.

That said after a few days of analyzing I simply figured he's one the most versatile DK's in the expansion and fits into most Druid decks, even if Jade will be nerfed making Druid less popular. You gotta go for cards you will use more frequent (good 7 mana slot), then cards that only work in some greedy expensive decks and won't see play most of the time.

When I have more dust I can focus on 'fun cards' like Sindragosa or Jaina DK...

Wauw you guys are either really good or I am just bad. I have only won with priest so far.

Because I don't have that much luck with pack openings this time around I've been looking through potential cards to craft, mostly Epics. And there are none. I crafted Obsidian Statue and Ultimate Infestation which are ofc really good. Maybe Corpsetaker looks craftworthy. And that's it. Actually it's pretty underwhelming how many of them are practically useless. Yeah I know Epics aren't usually that good, but still this is quite a downgrade since last expansion... from which I think like 50% sees regular play.

Just a little digression

Corpsetaker is craftworthy if you play paladin. She is soooo good, but imo not OP. I find Burnbristle a little better actually.
