I just don't like tracking. A single tracking can be alright midgame/late when you just *need* that one card. But two? Ehhh.

The hunter deck just needs the smallest of tweaks to be so much better.

The Hunter deck just isn't as coherent as the mage deck.

The mage deck is pure control/inspire.

The hunter deck has lock in load, but it also is kind of a control deck, and it's a bit of an aggro deck.

They're meant to showcase the new cards more than they are be perfectly balanced.

Watching Reynard screw up LnL combos is fun.

The Totem vs Totem mirror match is long and tedious.

Who's bright idea was it for Alleria to say 'Masterful' when you concede? As if it doesn't make you feel like an idiot when you lose. Jeezus.

I kind of thought that card was unplayable tbh.

Know what I hate? These stupid decks where people get completely outplayed and then win with some ridiculous combo because Druid has no bloody AoE removal.

Also I just noticed the guy who plays Tirion Fordring usually (in WotLK, etc.) plays him in the bits where Tirion narrates what's going on in TGT. But he didn't play Tirion Fordring the card.

I think because Hearthstone classic was made on a limited budget, so they pretty much just used Chris Metzen, Michael McConnohie, Melodee Spevack, Tara Platt, Yuri Lowenthal and a few other staples for everyone.

Been playing some Astral Communion druid (it's all I can afford after getting the worst 20 packs in history) and I think Noxious said it best that the card is very polarizing. I mean either it works out great and you top deck Deathwing or whatever and play him on turn 2 or 3 or you topdeck some bullshit (Innervate for example) and cry or worse yet, you don't even drawl Astral Communion in the turns where it is relevant (which so far is the deck's biggest problem).

On top of that for AC to be worth it you have to make the deck super heavy (and then you don't draw AC and cry) but at the same time you need some ramp (a lot of ramp is key in case of no AC), some draw (since you lose your hand), a few midrange (4-5 mana) minions (again in case AC doesn't work out or just to have something to play with AC/Nourish at 10 mana)... so my thoughts are that you can't have all that, I will probably cut all draw (except Nourish since it doubles as ramp) add 1-2 more midrange minion and make this deck a bit more of a classical ramp druid. Maybe that works.

And as if all that wasn't enough, Astral Communion if played on 10 will not restore full mana (despite that seeming logical with the card) but it will throw out your hand. And all you get for it is 1 Excess Mana. Not sure if this is intended or not (my guess is, intended) but it just might be the final nail in the coffin for the deck.

Yeah this is what I wound up using for Ramp druid:

http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/31290...p-druid-aviana

Was not a fan of Mulch, never liked the idea of Astral Communion. I like Living Roots a lot more than Zombie. Darnassus Aspirant has worked out beautifully. Either she allows for some fantastic early game trades. Is a strong minion in the late game, or she lets you ramp up for at least a turn or two.

Savage Combatant is an incredibly aggressively powerful card. If it stays on the field you potentially get 3 attack removal, or 8 attack face damage.

Big late game plays with Sludge Belcher, Aviana and Kel'thuzad are obviously ideal (and short of Equality + Consecrate are hard to deal with). Ancient of War is kind of weak so I'm debating tossing it out, but it stops aggro decks cold.

I know Grove Tender's not very popular, but she has nice stats for a 3 drop, and her effect is basically 'skip a turn'. Which is fine for most ramp decks where you're not doing a whole lot between 1-5 anyway. So I think she's fine at 1. If you play her right, she's basically a 2-4 for 2 anyway. And that's REALLY fantastic stats.

Yeah. I really dislike the "random decks for everyone" brawl because of how sometimes you just lose the game before it even starts, but you have no way of knowing until you start playing since you don't know the contents of your own deck.

Like, for one brawl I did as a Shaman I drew 4 Tuskarr Totemics in the first few turns (and got a quick concede by the time I played the third one). But for a Paladin one, I played the "play a copy of every secret in your deck" minion...only to find out that the randomly generated deck gave me that minion and zero secrets. And another one where my opening hand was 2 Light's Justices, a Truesilver Champion, and Seal of Champions, and I didn't draw anything more useful in subsequent turns.

We need more relevant warlock characters. Where's that white haired warlock that Varian fell in love with?
