You're naughty! And then I take my naughty pet and I go gszdkgs gszdkgs. OHHH!! I killed it!! I killed my sale!"

I've opened about 80ish so far and got 8 legendaries, including two golden. Like I said, super lucky  :mrgreen:

Anybody found any fun combinations with this week's brawl?  I had a good time with Flash of light/mind vision, and just playing with other people's decks.  Also Ice Block, Molten Giant was pretty effective.

I had some decent luck with flamewarden/arcane missles

Hahaha, being a mill Druid fanboy my first thought after seeing the brawl was Naturalize and something healing to survive against burn, but Oracle might be better to just try to push as fast as possible. Will definitely have to try later.

It works, it's very effective.  Druid Mill and Ice block/molten are the two dominant decks from what I can see, and the mill deck owns the iceblock deck.

There seemed to be another version of the Mill Druid going around for a bit that is Oracle and Innervate. It's faster, but gets beat bad by the Naturalize/Oracle version
Ugh, I'm all scuttled out!

I guess I missed out on the fun part of the Brawl, where people were still experimenting and not just going for the quickest wins possible, because almost everyone I ran into (yesterday afternoon and this morning) played minion pump/rush decks.

Hunter: Mechwarper + Metaltooth Leaper
Rogue: Mechwarper + Iron Sensei
Warrior: Target Dummy + Bolster
Druid: Living Roots + Savage Roar

That accounted for like 25/30 opponents. Some of the others were interesting, though they all still get crushed by swarm.

Rogue: Deadly Poison + Sinister Strike
Druid: Innervate + Y'Shaarj (gets annihilated by Naturalize)
Druid: Innervate + Deathwing, Dragonlord (crushes Naturalize because the card draw happens before the deathrattle lulz)
Paladin: Humility + Forbidden Healing
Warlock: Soulfire + Fist of Jaraxxus

Edit: Oh! I forgot about a Priest who ran Mind Blast + Power Word: Glory. Probably still loses to the Mech swarms, but I liked the idea of it a lot.

YOU GO TO HELL

Actually I had forgotten about the free packs, so it was more like 90-95, but still, yeah...

Truth is though, you don't need a ton of wealth to make good decks, especially when it comes to legendaries. None of the new class legendaries are super must-have, so you can make a nice range of strong decks with just N'Zoth and Twin Emperor. There aren't any new epics I would say are auto-include-two either.

As an example, the deck I've had the most fun (that is, combination of neat plays and wins) with so far is Reno Rogue (Evolve Shaman close 2nd). This deck sports 9(!) legendaries, but let's take a look at them:

Bloodmage Thalnos, Sylvanas Windrunner: Both top 5 crafting priority since Beta unless you've been playing strictly aggro, though I would understand not having Thalnos if you haven't played much Rogue, Mage, or Shaman. Sylvanas is necessary but Thalnos can be replaced.

Brann Bronzebeard, Emperor Thaurissan, Reno Jackson: All guaranteed with Adventures that, let's face it, Blizzard basically forces us to buy. Don't get me wrong, I've liked them a lot so far, but it's not a consumer-friendly business model as we can't trust them to always be high quality.

C'thun, N'Zoth, Twin Emperor: C'thun is free and the other two are easily the #1 and 2 crafting priorities from WotOG as they can form the backbone of a solid deck in any class.  If you want wins, play zoo :P. But if you want wins with midrange/control, get these guys.

And Xaril, who is good, but by no means crucial. Yeah the cards he gives are nice, but there are plenty of other good 4-drops, like Southsea Squidface.

I was mainly just bitching that you opened all those legendaries and I'm 70 packs in and only have one, and it's arguably one of the worst of the xpac.
