Yeah this one is interesting because it slots well into existing Paladin decks but it encourages Priest to play a different style of deck. It's harder to evaluate for Priest than Paladin.

Cgsongbird commented on New Card - High Abbess Alura 9 days ago

It's really just the highest ceiling reward example. You could potentially Alura into Mass Res for 3 minions for cheap. In the mid-game, even 3 weakish minions are really good. More realistic payoffs are Grave Rune and Psyche Split, but Mass Res has the potential to be more exciting.

Cgsongbird commented on New Card - High Abbess Alura 9 days ago

Deathrattle Priest is one of my favorite decks of all time. I totally get wanting different styles of play. The final reveal is tomorrow and hopefully you'll be pleasantly surprised by what you see.

All the best. <3

Cgsongbird commented on New Card - High Abbess Alura 9 days ago

If Alura were Discover a spell, she would need to be more in the Tortollan mana range, and that makes her Spellburst much more difficult to trigger in the same turn you play her.

She's also just a 4 mana 3/6, which is decent on curve and has a chance to stick around until turn 5 in a tempo deck that's playing a 1/4 on turn 1. If she lives, then you play Grave Rune or Psyche Split, and now you're in business.

She's not always going to hit, and her options aren't as powerful as Puzzle Box, but that's because she's a 4 mana minion. Play her in a tempo priest deck with buffs and she's going to be really good.

And I get being passionate about cards and classes. I am too. But accusing someone of being disingenuous is kind of rude. I'm here to chat with y'all because I'm excited about this set. Gimme the benefit of the doubt. :P

Cgsongbird commented on New Card - High Abbess Alura 9 days ago

It's certainly better in a Tempo Priest that tries to play proactively rather than reactively. That's why Priest gets Frazzled Freshman.

Cgsongbird commented on New Card - High Abbess Alura 9 days ago

There's Gift of Luminance which is a new card from the set, and Grave Rune, Power Infusion, and Holy Nova are quite good too. Plus it will be in Standard for 2 years and any cards we print in the future could potentially be strong in combination. Anything along the lines of Free From Amber for instance would be really powerful.

I'm not being disingenuous. Everybody will of course make their own opinions, and I'm sharing my experiences.

Cgsongbird commented on New Card - High Abbess Alura 9 days ago

This card is absolutely not bad in Priest. It just requires you to build your deck with it in mind. Casting Shadow Word Pain on it is not good, but Psyche Split or Mass Resurrection are excellent.

Cgsongbird commented on New Card: Potion of Illusion 9 days ago

I tested mostly with Licensed Adventurer and it's a guaranteed 2 turn setup, but it's really hard to get there without dying. Fun to play though!

Cgsongbird commented on New Card - High Abbess Alura 9 days ago

Can confirm it's not fun.

Kerfluffle-11372 submitted Updated Free Deck for New and Returning Players 9 days ago

The decks awarded to new and returning players will be updated on July 30! We’ve also made it easier for returning players to claim the free deck by removing the prerequisite of completing the returning player experience.* So long as you’ve been away for 120 days, you’ll be prompted with the deck grant right after you log in!

As a reminder, here is how it works for new players:

  • Log into Hearthstone and complete the tutorial and the Starter Quest line.
  • You will need to graduate from the New Player Ranks (Ranks 40-1).
  • Upon completing these quests, you will be able to select your free Class Deck once you return to the main menu.

It’s possible you may not see the deck in your deck list if you did not have an open deck slot when you chose your free Class Deck. If this happens, don’t worry! You will still receive all the cards from that deck. If you would like to delete one of your existing decks, you can then navigate back to this page and use our deck list. From here, copy the deck code, and you can then add the deck to your deck list from within Hearthstone.

*Limited one per account. A returning player is defined as one who has not logged into Hearthstone for 120 consecutive days. If you’re returning to Hearthstone on 7/30/2020, your last log in needs to be before 4/1/2020 to qualify.
