Playing HS in free-to-play mode is another whole minigame in itself.  I've been thinking of opening an EU account and going free to play with it as a challenge.

On the subject of annoying things about Hearthstone, there are a number of permanent, hidden quests that give rewards for reaching milestones or playing on multiple systems, and can be very helpful when starting out.

Could've gotten many more squires via Recruiter (http://www.hearthhead.com/card=2509/recruiter) ;)
Ugh, I'm all scuttled out!

I've got 4000 dust and Patron warrior is (mostly) gone so this seems like a good time to get back into the ladder. Any suggestions for good and fun decks?

Casino Mage!  All the randomness.  Justicar Trueheart is totally optional, I only put it in because I have a gold one and like to flaunt it.  honestly I think Sylvanas would be stronger in the 6 spot.

I also wanted to post this for Joel.  We were talking about arena the other night, and heartharena.com came up.  The website has always been an incredibly valuable tool for learning how to draft a deck, it tells you what cards to pick, but also tells you why you are picking them.  Its only drawback has always been how clunky it is to input each card into the website.  Recently they've released an overlay that basically pops the website up over the top of your hearthstone client, so all you have to do is pick the card and the rest is done for you.  It's pretty amazing and really the best way to learn how to arena.  It's kind of in beta stages right now, they don't advertise it on their website and are letting it filter out through word of mouth.  It has a few bugs, but once you figure it out it is pretty sweet.

Heartharena also has one of the best and easiest to use Tier Lists for ranking cards. It won't give dynamic card ratings based on what's already in your deck, but if the other systems aren't working out or you're just wanting something less intensive, just keep http://www.heartharena.com/tierlist up.
But good cards won't win your arena games for you. Watching some arena-heavy pros (like Kripparian) can really help with strategy and can help you take even the worst decks to 4 or 5 wins (which is roughly the break-even point in terms of getting 150g worth of rewards). Eric probably knows a lot more streamers and the like since I really don't pay much attention to the Hearthstone pro scene.

I would think Loatheb would be good if you don't have Trueheart or Rag. Dr. Boom is pretty irreplaceable in any deck.

Cromag?? you mean... chromaggus? Also, tharsarian must be the funniest spelling of thaurissan I have ever seen. Best typos ever.

Those are all pretty terrible cards for the deck. Those are very control-orient cards and this deck is more of a tempo deck, where you keep the board clear of threats while dealing some damage in the early game, and then finish your opponent with direct damage (fireball, ragnaros, boom bots, etc.) somewhere in turns 6-8.

If you don't have Loatheb or Sylvanas I would go with more aggressively weighted cards such as a 2nd Piloted Shredder, Piloted Sky Golem, Dragon's Breath, Drakonid Crusher, Argent Commander, Harrison Jones (if weapons are popular), The Black Knight (he isn't aggressively weighted, but he can remove a taunt), a Polymorph (more taunt or whatever removal), etc.
