I agree the Angler is the mvp, but I want Scargill

Well, the thing is that although he seems like a solid Legendary (good stats + effect) I still don't know how his effect actually fits Murlocs. Yes, flooding the board with them is possible, and with things like Murloc Quest this might be overkill even. But at the same time Murlocs are cheap either way, and you don't want to vomit your whole hand in case of board clears.

My guess his true power lies in Wild, where you can spam Murlocs really fast and play Everyfin. Or if you want to play those couple of more expensive murlocs like Corrupted Seer or Spiritwalker. In Standard he might only work with Angler.

To sum it up: you won't go wrong with crafting him, but if you're low on resources I would reconsider... I just haven't seen his actual potential yet.

PS: After some thinking I'm reevaluating my opinion of Lackeys. I still think it's not super original, but... this is actually a really strong mechanic. I really enjoy an element of strategy it brings with the Battlecries. At this point I might even consider rating it as one of the best new mechanics since Discover. It can only get better with new additions if Team 5 will add more of them to the pool like they said. I just hope they won't add some useless effects that will "nerf" them. Those are balanced atm.

I'm missing so many standard cards it's unbelievable. No way to get them either. Right now I have an average rogue for ladder and I gave up on the burn mage. Didn't get any good legendaries, had some bad arena luck. Game's still enjoyable and I plan on staying f2p for now. Well, I won't be able to play for much, duty calls tomorrow. I'll miss out on all that daily gold, such a shame.

I wish I could help you but I have no idea how the game looks from a new player perspective. You can either "invest" in the game and buy a few packs (Amazon coins?). You can treat it as you would normally pay for an expansion to a paid game. I bought Blackrock Mountain for instance to save the gold I've acquired, and instead used it on packs.

You can also try the 80 gold quest trading https://www.hearthpwn.com/forums/hearthstone-general/players-and-teams-discussion/214403-80g-quest-trading-play-a-friend-7 for some bonus gold. I have a friend with who I usually trade these quests.

I also have bad luck with Legendaries, I almost never get the ones I want and end up crafting them. Sometimes the "bad ones" turn out better then expected though, like it was the case with Yogg-Saron which I initially hated (cus I dislike rng heavy cards), but yeah, he turned out to be a meta-defining card that was ultimately nerfed

Got to rank 10 with Whizbang again. I love the time right after a new expansion hits and before everyone optimized their decks.

Isn't the meta settled already? With Token Druid and Bomb Warrior?

All I see are Rogues, they really got the most OP cards. Today 8/10 have been Rogues, ugh.

But it is fun, I love Summoner Dragon Mage and Heckler Warrior ^^

I don't know if rank 10 is high enough to know what the meta is, but I've actually seen some variety on my way up there. Bomb Warrior, Token Druid (Vargoth and Blessing of the Ancients is disgusting), Summon Mage, Lackey Warlock, Rogues. While some were more frequent then others, I didn't feel like any one of those dominated. But again, that was just from climb from rank 16 to rank 10.

Fast opressive decks are usually the stars of early meta. I was ofc joking, it's too early to judge if both Token Druid and Bomb-W will stay. For instance Token Druid is always oppresive, but somehow people find a way to counter it. This game works in a way that if there is a strong deck in meta, natural counters for it arise. If it's still too strong, then come the nerfs. From my recent memory I remember Odd & Even being such decks. They weren't dominating at first, but at some point it's Class variants became the epitome of "meta decks". Another example might be Mid-/DK Hunter for instance.

Terrorist Warrior has to be the most oppressive deck I got to play against. Token Druid is manageable, lost a lot more to the Warlock variant. Pilfer rogue is stupidly fun and Summoner Mage as well, both very strong too. Though by rank 15 I saw more Pirate Rogue and Burn Mage. There's Secret Paladin too. Also hoping that we're just scratching the surface as far as the meta goes.

I don't play the game that much but in truth... I didn't meet Bomb Warrior even once since the expansion hit, not even in Standard Arena Brawl where people tend to use oppressive fast-win decks.

I've met Token Druid and the combos with Vargoth are nasty. It's hard to kill off all the Treants with Soul of the Forest around...

I'm still delighted with "Lackey" Rouge though, games with this deck are very fun and diverse because it also uses the pilfer mechanics...

At rank 17 I only meet mages

I myself am playing a Secret Mech-Paladin trump made, and it is pretty fun. I am not sure how far up the ranks, I can get. But it is fun and I like Paladin

HCT coming soon, guys. I selected Viper for my packs strategy, hopefully he'll go far. He's such a genuine guy too, would like to meet him someday, maybe even play a game or two.

That said, I won't be able to follow all the action. I'll have to make do with updates.

I've read about an interesting idea: Hearthstone is 5 years old now, and new players like Stevie still seem to have a problem hopping in. That idea was to make all Classic cards free from the get go. Another idea goes even further as to make, for instance, all sets over 2 years old free. Blizzard would only cash in on the newest sets, although people who invested a lot of money in the game would be angry. What do you guys think?

Another question: do you think crafting Keeper Stalladris is worth it? The answer is probably yes, but maybe some of you play him and can give feedback? I personally still want to try Heal Druid, so I'm looking for a good excuse.

I agree with making classic cards free or at the very least obtainable. But if you make sets that rotated out free, wouldn't the best course of action become disenchanting them for meta cards? I'd certainly do that.

But as a fairly recent player, what I'd like is if they increased the gold amount for the 3 wins on ladder. 10 gold is a joke. In TESL I think it was more like 50. Right now I feel I should prioritise arena and play ladder only to squeeze that extra gold for another arena run. Not sure if that's what they wanted, but it's certainly the most efficient way for me to build a collection.

Yeah, when I was more into Hearthstone, I really grinded this 10 gold rewards cus I wanted packs and it was a chore. Good news is that Team 5 supposedly has it on their radar so it might change in the future.

But for me the most important thing would be if they rounded up the dreaded 5 gold counter for Arena Rewards.

I don't think I've encountered Keeper Stelladris on ladder, so not sure how worthwhile he is. He is certainly not a must in any deck that I know of.

As for making stuff free, I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I see no reason for it. Blizzard still needs to make money of the game and as long as there are ways for new players to progress for free, it seems fine to me. Daily quests give decent amount of gold now, you can disenchant a couple of legendaries and craft Whizbang, you can play arena which has no relation to a player's collection and is incidentally the best value for gold you can get and even on ladder there are decent cheap decks, usually in the form of zoo and aggro.
