    I was thinking, the pack symbol is surely a HS swirl, but it looks kind of like a Horde emblem.  Reminded me of Forged in the Barrens.  Could some old characters from that year return in this set?  Maybe going on a vacation together with some hopes of treasure hunting while there?!

    The one thing I really don’t like as a player whose favorite card is [Hearthstone Card (C’thun) Not Found], his deck is really bad!  Too slow and not able to respond to multiple wide boards unless you somehow maintain a wide board yourself.

    That and the C’thun added to your hand is skipped over by the cosmetics check.  So… Blizzard is selling Signature C’Thun in a bundle under the Twist tab in their shop, yet players who buy it won’t get to see a Signature C’Thun in their starting hand ever…  I got mine a while back from CoT packs, so I’m good!  But if anyone buys that bundle wanting to use the sig version in this Twist format… I hope they yell at the devs for the error.

    Your greed (or stupidity) is showing, Blizzard!

    As someone who likes Twist, the details laid out regarding the rest of the year don't make me too excited for the mode.  June and July could be fun, but if all we get after that is two more months of Wonders... *sigh*

    If that's the case, they should at the very least add Knights of the Frozen Throne and then Kobolds & Catacombs in the second month of it.  They could also pre-emptively ban more cards to try and restrict power levels like they did for the Caverns quest when adding Un'Goro to Wonders.  That's honestly what I'd love Twist to be.  Have some special months like June and July, then during the other months you can just do things similar to the Brawl Block tavern brawls.  And come up with more variations on the blocks, then rotate through those while occasionally creating new blocks.

    That said, the months that Twist has been down I've automatically been getting the D5 chest once I hit five wins on the season because my Twist rank has been locked there ever since the last live season ended.  So for months where I'm feeling lazy I already know I can get at least that chest with minimal effort.

    Yeah, this definitely feels like more of a month long Tavern Brawl.  On one hand, having the decks be pre-built might bring in more people because they aren't limited by their collection.  Except of course they still are somewhat limited if they tend to dust their Wild cards and don't own 13 of the 19 options.  So unless one of the free options is the most busted deck in the format, the majority of players may still avoid the mode.

    This month could also be compared to a Duels Lite, where you get a passive, some crazy cards (probably) but the decks are always predictable based on the hero you choose.

    I feel ike if they don't just revert to the old system they are going to need a big overhaul.  A few people have suggested doing tiered weekly quests.  Get xp for 5 wins, then more xp for 10 wins, and could do another xp reward for 15 wins.  Rewards the more dedicated players while still allowing the more casual players to get their usual 5 win XP goal.  Some kind of tiered quest system like that for weekly quests would be nice in my opinion.

    I understand how the card rotation and various versions work.  But when I made the deck I made the deck in the client AFTER rotation, and then copied the code to this site.  So the version it would have linked from the start was the Legacy version after it rotated out of Core.  if there is a problem, it's not on my end.  Talk to the guys who manage the site.

    There is only one version to link, and it is the version I have in the list.

    Depending on how long they want to tease the mini set it might be about right for a reveal after the Brawl.

    Mustache can be done with Chemical Spill and Gromm.  I used the list from this video to do it.

    But I really want the Demonic Illidan skin, and still need 270 DH wins. There's no way I can play that many games before the 16th!  I have a job and a family!

    But seriously, the deck is nuts!  The low number of demons for Window Shopper to discover makes it way to consistent.  Could have it set the discovered demon to the same stats and reduce cost of it rather than setting to the same cost as the Shopper.  Or maybe just discover a demon, reduce the cost by (x).  That way you aren't getting things like (3) 6/5 or (1) 1/1 Mags, but could also avoid getting useless things like (1) 1/1 Mythical Terror or Illidari Inquisitor.

    Would that be too harsh though?  Maybe.  Grasp could either go up in mana or only reduce cost by 1.  Maybe just lose the cost reduction period!  We shall see.

    Curious to see if any other cards get hit, like Ball Hog.

    That all depends on your rank I'm sure.  Probably not facing much if any of the bots I was seeing if you are sitting in Legend.  I never really push for anything more than Diamond ranks because I want to play more than what the meta says I can.

    I kept seeing people on other forums complain about the massive amounts of Mech Rogue bots and hadn't seen any myself.  Then I suddenly I had multiple days of nothing but Mech Rogues or decks from random classes running nothing but basic cards from starter decks.  The starter decks roped every.  Single.  Turn...

    For the most part EZ wins, but annoying and boring.  I guess they had won enough games against each other to climb into upper Plat, lower Diamond MMR matches where the fun loving off-meta players like me tend to live!

    Immediately after today's update I saw my first real opponent in Wild in about 3 days.

    From my 11 golden packs I had 2 golden legendaries abd two signature legendaries, including Sonya Waterdancer in sig!

    With the preorder, freebies, and gold I had 150 normal Whizbang packs.  My avg packs/legendary through the first 132 was about 11 packs/leg.  Got another from about 15 Standard packs.  Also had insane luck on Epic drop rares too.

    I swear I think the game thought I was a streamer!  My pack luck was insane this time around.  Now if I could just win some games...  Trying out as much new stuff as I can right now since I got so much new stuff, so fun over winrate I guess!  With the reduced amount of acheuvements I'm already at 25%

    As a Wild player I was dreading the day that some big Core exclusives went away.  Unless I'm missing something, I believe the full list of rotating Core exclusives that might would need to be opened or crafted for Wild is:

    PatchwerkLord MarrowgarOverseer FrigidaraAegwynn, the GuardianYsera the DreamerAlexstrasza the Life-Binder

    ObliterateRepulsive Gargantuan

    Ymirjar DeathbringerBonedigger GeistGraveyard ShiftRimefang Sword

    RuneforgingRime SculptorDefrostSelective Breeder

    Corrupted AshbringerPossessifierHeart StrikeShadowed SpiritEmerald Skytalon

     

    Only a few legendaries in the list I feel are must haves, and the lower rarity items can be obtained by opening a handful of Wild packs.  And I believe I should maintain a Marrowgar copy since I got the signature version from the paid Tavern Pass.  If that disappears after I technically bought it, I'm going to be upset.

    UPDATE: The signature Marrowgar did in fact convert to a collectable Legacy card, still uncraftable though.

    I was looking over the Core set rotation last night, and with this being the first big shake up for Death Knight in their Core set, there are some classic cards of theirs that will be disappearing for all players soon.  For players who only venture into Standard, this is likely no big deal.  But for a Wild player such as myself, their abscence could have an impact.  Cards like Patchwerk and Lord Marrowgar, Obliterate, and many others.  Outside of DK, the most noteable loss might be Alexstrasza the Life-Binder, and potentially Selective Breeder.

    The good news is that all of these cards should be added to the Legacy set, and are obtainable via Wild packs or crafting.  In total there appears to be 6 Legendary cards, 2 Epics, 8 Rares, and 5 Commons rotating out that players may find they are missing.  While several will be no big deal, some of those mentioned above and maybe a few others might be worth opening a handful of Wild packs to grab those Rares and Commons, maybe get lucky to snag a legendary or two.

    I am uncertain about what will happen to Marrowgar in my collection though.  I have the Signature version of him, which was obtained via the paid tavern pass during March of the Lich King.  So in my opinion that card should stay in my collection and just convert to be a Legacy card.  If that isn't what happens in 45 minutes, I'm going to be writing a strongly worded email to Blizzard about some things.

    Full list of cards that you may need to craft if you want them after rotation:

    Patchwerk

    Lord Marrowgar

    Overseer Frigidara

    Aegwynn, the Guardian

    Ysera the Dreamer

    Alexstrasza the Life-Binder

    Obliterate

    Repulsive Gargantuan

    Ymirjar Deathbringer

    Bonedigger Geist

    Graveyard Shift

    Rimefang Sword

    Runeforging

    Rime Sculptor

    Defrost

    Selective Breeder

    Corrupted Ashbringer

    Possessifier

    Heart Strike

    Shadowed Spirit

    Emerald Skytalon
