[Hearthstone] Frost Lich Jaina, Your New Goddess

hey guys how’s it going crane here today I’m giving eyes the most amazing highlight I’ve experienced with the new hero cards and it has to do with it Jana so Jana via the Lich pretty strong card it is a little clunky right now because it gets kind of countered by some of the very greedy decks out there but it has some crazy performances against the mid-range and all index and I had a highlight that I just could not believe the power of the card when you get those elementals going there is absolutely no stopping you sort of like you know insane board reset clear or you know otk combos and it’s it’s just such a cool card um there are many powerful cards in the Frozen Throne expansion but I think standalone in a typical situation Jana might take the cake and if you’re not convinced watch the game and I’ll see you guys tomorrow can’t see what’s up with druid I guess it’s pretty well crypt hand for thick like this where do I get a thousand packs I have a million dust you don’t have a million vest me um well the met is still a toss-up I couldn’t tell you what looks good what’s not right now I don’t know excuse me yuan Jun let’s rank 22 catendra is strong back like if he gets c’thun to like 15 15 or much higher which he could I don’t know how I’d ever kill it I have no silence removal so came gotta get it via primordial glyph yeah Wow pretty strong full [Music] DK ginormous plenty of elephants be pictured one oh shit think of going for an extern lethal which you will get okay it’s just so rare that you’d want to use a ramp on turn eight here those who wheel yeah I think if I go for a primordial glyphs into Pali right now I won’t make it I think I have to do this hope to survive another turn after that those c’thun druids are serious bro what nice Cara yeah wait 101 now I haven’t thought about a professor future sidetracking me at 15 might give me the breathing room I need certainly not recommended [Music] if I come I tell most even come by Thomas without the innervate play would have been fine I’m all in on that one if I do it where’s your God now I can witch-king Jane is the new God you’re shivering are you afraid [Music] came where shall I go for days that’s right I’m not losing any of my life game you’re going to 30 and we’re staying there [Applause] we did I can see it’s your rank 22 game give me that fucking star that’s right a game demands two stars [Music] you [Music]

[Hearthstone] Kripp’s Top 10 Frozen Throne Cards

hey guys how’s it going cranium so I thought a lot about what I want to do for you guys in terms of summarizing what the good cards are in the upcoming Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion and I think that rather than re reviewing all of them now that we have more information from seeing all the cards and knowing how kind of the class archetype will work out like what classes have more options for powerful combos or powerful decks and all that what kind of cars is really high power level that we have to acknowledge will likely be in a lot of decks and you know we can get a slightly better picture but I thought instead I just give you a list top ten most powerful cards the most relevant meta cards I believe we will see from the upcoming expansion now I have a little bit of an asterisk so I think some of these cards might take a little bit to see play it might even be in the you know expansion after this I think some of the cards that were implemented in this expansion are very powerful aggro cards but there are a lot of control cards so one would think that was or just kind of figure out a way for control to take over with just enough healing taunt measures and all that so you know maybe Agra will be a thing but it doesn’t mean the Agra cards we got in this expansion aren’t ridiculous so let’s kick it off here number 10 on my list is actually the Lich King so some people think this is just the best card in the set and you know it could be but you have to keep in mind that this card is really only going to see play in a slow deck so if you’re playing a mid-range deck often enough you’re going to have at least one or two big cards you’re going to pick over it now with the launch of hero cards there are just heavier cards in this one and most mid-range decks rely on the very few but extremely powerful late-game cards so basically King might be an auto including every single control deck but we have seen some of the easiest control cards we’ve ever seen hearthstone history in the upcoming expansion so while I think the Lich King is way above the power level of previous late-game cards in general it is actually competing with a lot of spots at least for non control decks and yeah you are going to see it quite a bit in control decks that’s why it’s 10th on the list a very powerful card we have corpse taker so this card just looks really good and if you really think about it it just is really good like if you’re playing paladin and you got a the burned bristle whatever his name is wicker flame this is going to be a 4 mana divine shield taunt lifesteal just if you have one of those in your deck that’s just ridiculous I don’t know if you guys have tried it but if you just play divine shield taunt minions in your deck it actually does a really good job stopping most aggro it’s just there’s usually slightly better ways to do it but this is a much better way to do it and it’s in that same Department so I think we are going to see a lot of corpse takers especially in the mid range and control decks maybe even in the aggregate decks honestly then I have skalamander I think I have praised this card more than anyone else people seem to doubt its power I don’t doubt its power I think this is the single biggest board cleared deny card we have ever seen and I think it’s stata dwell enough that we’ll see play so I think if you’re running unaggressive – on aggro like an aggressive maybe a zoo deck and you’re up against the control deck usually turn 5 6 7 is when board clears start dropping on your board and you know you start losing and you need chargers and burst and all that kind of crap well if you have a pretty good board and on turn 5 you play this your opponent I would say it’s a mage he cannot Blizzard you because he’s probably just going to die it does really well against doomsayer I think we’re going to see a decent number of doom there’s even though yeah priest has a number of counters for this potion of madness doesn’t really punish it that hard I mean yeah it punishes pretty hard but not as bad as you think because the priest doesn’t get your 8/8 may just be able to five drops again pretty strong but still the main weakness is the priest and it’s not like you’re going to lose the game if it gets potion amends much like other cards with similar effects from the past if you can have any kind of taunt activator if you’re using like the bone mayor if you’re using a spiked Ridge steed like imagine you speed this play this your parents just going to leave it play speed on it for eight taunt and when it dies you get an eight eight and two six thought to protect the eight eight like it’s just absolutely crazy crazy amount of stats for the mana and that’s why I think it will see some play the main answer for this is silence removal but from what I have seen it seems like silence removal is the main counter to priests so there’s a lot of sounds removal going on you know maybe it’s actually still okay to play this because you’re not going to run up against that many priests which are going to have slightly more efficient counters against you then I have the shaman hero card for all deaths here it may not look like you know the craziest card ever but it’s a five cost hero card with a really powerful effect so if you play a four drop and your four drop attacks something let’s see if I can injured four drop you play this it upgrades it to a six drop on turn five and then your hero power just pushes the board constantly it gives you armor which lets you use weapons more in the mid-range deck without having to run healing it’s just a really really high power card and I think it fits into possibly even fairly aggressive shaman decks certainly in mid-range certainly in control it’s just I mean this card the only way this card density play is if shaman says no play and I have to think that won’t happen then we have a despicable dread lord cost four five demon the one damage to all enemy minions at the end of turn I think this card I think people people saw this or like yeah that’s a good card and then just moved along I think it’s worth taking a second look I think this card is a lot stronger than the first look would suggest it denies so many plays from your opponent you know the the end of turn effect happening again and again and again is just it’s just ridiculous against fast decks and it’s a pretty strong mid-range card it carries its own so demon which works with the the new warlock hero and a few other options as well it’s just it’s just ridiculous then we have dead man’s hand in number five so I’ve been a backer this card for a while I know a lot of people haven’t shown it much support but it I think it is the single card that enables control warrior once again and I’m I’m Toland firm on that I think even even like the the warrior hero card I only has a good control warrior card but we’re going to have at least a few control decks working out and control order being able to go incident and keep in mind J druid has a counter now so you know seems like this might be the absolute top dog of control it’s possible and I think that demands some recognition now we have the new one drop on cop21 and it gives a friendly minion +1 attack permanently it’s kind of like what abusive sergeant kind of was in the past and yeah Jesus art is a ridiculous card so this is a ridiculous card and you know there’s some chance a growing zoo might be completely dead in the upcoming expansion I highly doubt that but whenever an aggressive or zoo deck pops up in the meta once again I have a strong feeling this is going to be part of those lists number three is the Warlock hero card I think this covers what control warlock decks were missing all of this time it the hero power that you get deals three and heals you for three so much single target removal so much constant healing exactly what control warlocks were missing they had the big board clears they had the efficient giant plays and all that this is the only thing they were missing and they got it so I have a really strong feeling that warlock is going to do very well and I think this card is going to take them pretty far number two is defile one damage to all minions and if any die cast is again so I thought this card was pretty good I mean it’s obviously pretty good but when we saw in a few of the demos considering some of the cards that people are playing even control decks are playing a lot of cards that just you know that they have to die like two or three times to follow just ridiculous at removing them and it’s it’s better I feel than most other removal options and even warlocks previously had so that’s saying a lot warlocks had amazing early to mid-game board clears and this is better than the past so think control warlock is going to be a thing but we’ll see number one you’re ready for it it’s a one drop yep righteous protector this car is just obviously bonkers I talked about it I think it’s the car that annoyed me the most because it’s clearly a card that’s way above its power level in the one drop slot so I think this card is going to supply in every single aggro pally as long as it’s in standard it’s going to see play and every single mid-range power lead every single buff pally in every single control palette even it’s possible right like it’s so insane even if you’re playing like a combo oriented paladin deck dropping this and then using whatever to turn set up combo that you might need might actually get it to work for a one cost card that’s also insane against every other deck because you can play it on turn one it’s card it is crazy there’s there’s really not much to say about it overall this expansion while my list has 10 it really took me a long time to get down to that I think there are easily 25 extremely powerful cards certainly so I’m not on this list and I think more than any other expansion I’ve mentioned before there are an unbelievably high number of high potential cards cards that could be amazing could not be amazing and those cards I feel are what really make the game fun for me I get to test them out there’s so many things to test try experiment and try to push out some crazy decks out there more so than any other expansion we’ve seen before and that’s pretty exciting any other game might stay fresh for more than typical two to three week period maybe we might get more than a month out of this expansion and I can’t wait to try it out let me know what you think share your excitement the expansion and let me know what card do you think I may have missed on the top [Music]

[Hearthstone] Frozen Throne’s Best Day One Deck

Haga the gum cranium so we hadn’t a Frozen Throne launched it’s been quite a blast to check out all the different options cards and mess around and do all that kind of stuff today I want to give you guys just a little bit of direction I tried a lot of decks on the first day streamed for like 17 plus hours overall I had a few successful decks and while there were a few quite exceptional I think the best results came from the new zoo lock as it turns out now be warned zoo lock seems to perform pretty well to start of every expansion because most decks are not refined so zoo lock you know has a good chance against agra has a good chance against mid range is a good chance against control and because the other decks are generally not very refined in the first few days of expansion zoo lock outperforms where it normally is but it really really performed I think my win rate was close to 90% with this deck and it just slaughtered people now there are some aspects of this deck that I think work but could be changed I’m using Prince’s the only to drop the battlecry buffs all the cards left in your deck I think it’s reasonable because most the two drops are not essential to zoo you can just play more one drops if you play more one drops you have a more consistent opener and that’s really how sue works I have just tons and tons of minions of very few situational cards you play is that kind of like a board control deck not so much as a finisher with charging Doom guards and whatnot you don’t need those what you need is the scale of mansur the skill of answers five cost to two when it dies it spawns with 8/8 if a dodging your opponent’s turn well you have so many activators to give it taunt and this card single Henle counters board control cards so you know you play this turn five into a mage turn five into a paladin they’re behind on the board they literally have no options they can’t clear your board because the video they die if they don’t through the board well the dance u-turns so it’s just an amazing card bone mayor is kind of like the late-game finisher and there is a bit of inconsistency because sometimes you draw like two bone there’s in the early game and you have some issues but even those games even with like absolute trash to your openers this deck can still come back and win just because it’s so ridiculously efficient in terms of board control Zoo game so check out the hope you guys are inspired up together and join the expansion as much as I am and I’ll see you guys tomorrow spirit lash with mass dispel I don’t know about that and I cyclist good no this is not while [Music] [Music] [Music] what I was hoping for but whatever doctor all right here’s what the wrecking comes and it’s over Thank You skele man sir you can’t board for mid-range warlock from ranked 22 to fourteen same wind revealer what’s that [Music] glory to the fedora he needs potion a madness dragon fire and that just kind of like breaks even it doesn’t going to do much I don’t think so at least if you cast potion – on scalamaster and kills it off it won’t spawn anything the only thing is week two is cabal Shadow Priests I’m not sure that’s a playable card right now until I use live on 1hp them the prince deck at p.m. and that’s much better well mate alright now you guys tell me scalamaster is not a good card I think your boy Walker that much potion of madness doesn’t counter exactly good good answer to it I think that’s fine well play no I don’t think a piece of it’s worth that there probably going to make some shit play line up into a dragon fire potion or where to place akela my answer is not going to play the dragon fire potion these endless okay that’s really good [Music] [Music] okay ole opry we need Argos abusive veteran bone there is my field it avoid walkers really strong against paladin those dumb one-drop they just got so keep it to rate the legend yeah that card I want a coin but yeah it’s a bad idea to okay I’m sure ticket we’re like I think I was talking about it but it sounds pretty bad there’s a good girl beat your pink that expansion is pretty cool I’m pretty happy with everything wow that feels like a pyro quality rested apart it’s pirate father to remind you guys we have a we have a deck with a print in it and it has a lot of all right your midas over okay so basically it’s going to happen is you’re going to piece keep that we’re going to reverse piece keep that and then we’re going to shoot on the Peacekeeper not actually kind of sex I don’t think I can get through that come one off even in the best case yeah surface no skele münster to instantly win the game I ran a control pally out of cards I guess that’s fine my field put kind of like flappy bird – yeah it flaps no less sure that’s really sleeping bro that’s like oh my god what are you doing what the fuck are you doing huh what well played okay okay into the break my seal there is only much you have prior or will just be control palette and about every single answer actually ran out of cards clearing us things we might be back guys I’m not sure that’s a good thing but yeah I mean I really like skill um answer but I feel like I have to draw into it have to just get good one drops oh man oh man dude for a deck of fourteen one drops this is really shit nothing except mine seriously yeah typically this deck has three good one drops turn one and then two on turn two I think I’ve ever okay can I guess Dora my field I don’t think there’s any harm in that attack well I mean this is you can’t even you can’t even believe how bad this dries so yeah sure might lose this cuz honestly I think I had the chance [Music] quickly that’s in pointless it still works Oh bad huh glory to the fedora [Music] pretty confident ass to play you know who’s creating the in-game recipes now I thought that this time around they’re pretty decent interesting felt like when they launched the deck recipe and I remember one that was I felt like some intern did them because they were terrible but it sounded pretty interesting I think it’s probably easy to do good deck recipes this time because whole expansion has a nice appeal that’s really bad now we’re still dealing with all this garbage probably a long list I mean you can see how powerful zoo is after all that bull crap still doing things I mean it’s drawn zero cards is head like insane perfect answers it’s going to be more of them to actually come back after being in a ridiculously favorable position and I don’t I don’t have board clears I have to trade my way back into the game which is terrible that’s not bad I’m going to save the Deaf speaker one turn I think his main way out is a dragon thing that’s Picard counters it sure whatever blood will flow [Music] [Music] looks like I might actually win this game hmm nothing scared me except mine reporting for duty not sure that actually helps very much I guess it does Drive lethal 3 3 yep that’s me fun y’all peace we won that all right if suspects actually crazy [Music]

[Hearthstone] The New Frozen Throne Deck Recipes

hey guys how’s it going brain here today we give you guys my first look through the new deck recipes the other day when the Frozen Throne patch went through before the expansion was released but the patch went through it had the new deck recipes we can kind of see what Blizzard was promoting cuz a lot of the players who pick up parts on pick it up during this time and they pick it up using the advice they see into the game and the advice is seeing the game has a certain direction or flow to it it can be a pretty important deal to them and I find it pretty interesting to see what kind of deck recipes Blizzard comes up with traditionally about half of them have been quite good and half well not so good and this time around it’s very similar but I thought it was a bit more interesting probably led on by the fact that the cards themselves from the upcoming expansion are overall more interesting than in the past we have very few dull cards we have very few cards that are clearly underpowered and most cards are in that range where they might just be really good but you know you have to you have to try that you have to test them you have to see how well you can synergize them with other cards and yeah having an overlooked for the first time it’s an interesting experience and I wanted to share with you guys that today so enjoy it and I’ll see you guys tomorrow no pain no gain well I don’t have to look at the deck list because it’s a warrior hero card deck oh come on come on I mean seriously this is the worst card in the expansion so let’s say you have this and then and then you play this and it’s like wow combo wombo four mana 5/3 wow that’s really good whoa why not try Yeti it’s free after all what else we got overload giants Robbie oh wow that’s that’s pretty good synergy if you can play a bunch of giants and then freeze them if you can replay them what’s Banshee if you can replay the mill full cost of zero xers pretty good avalanche two freezes ice breaker is I mean this tech might be terrible but we have no idea it’s so different I want to try this this looks like a fun deck that’s a pretty good curve too I have a feeling this is a strong curve the defenders a good card it maybe it’s not a maybe it’s not a really good card but it’s a good card I think if you stick this in any shaman deck in the next expansion you’re not going to regret it so that’s just fine if you think this card sucks aggro is still going to exist hi Sean deck is potentially quite good well I’m in like it what do we got the sauce valera slayer bone baron okay orifice yep how many death threats are there yeah one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen thirteen so roll the bones is draw 1.4 cards for two I think that’s still worse than novice engineer yeah some of these cards just really low power level and that’s one of them alright when we got here Arjun Squire Arjun Squire 2.00 bench is the for cost five five that you discard cards so that cards good to any time but that’s going to be a really good arena card by the way that Banshee card is better than yet in arena hundred percent one hundred percent no doubt about it that card is going to be like an eighty point arena card man she’s great and constructed obviously sucks but constructed is about overpowered shit synergizing with other overpowered shit so that’s different conversion hydrologist wow that’s a really aggressive curve I was going to talk the deck but actually with a curve like that it can probably cycle through very well I think this is probably a more powerful deck than I realize no hero I think it’s fine so aggressive think bomb is pretty good Elway they get to deck recipes wait do all of them get to that recipes oh so one recipe is like mostly the previous expansion and one is like the new new expansion yeah that’s how it is but the hunter one is very different like it’s missing seven cards okay it’s probably been orifice oh it’s a beast and if you could stitch the track or our fists very good so there’s actually very few minions in this deck it’s running a shitload of traps so I think the idea is that you get cloaked Huntress to have insane value with secret keeper and you can get a stack on when you’re cloaked huntresses because you have few minions and you could get it would stitch the tracker future sides pretty good I think it’s Beck’s luck but it looks really interesting I probably give this a go the eternal hunt the sauce well it’s pretty bad with high main it’s fine with that wait how does how does that gain attack what what is that supposed to pull validated doomsayer for mana 7/7 the egg huh okay all right it’s very different I can’t say it’s bad without trying it Hydra knocks Lich King no Furion and we basically saw this deck in their card reveal demo there’s same decent it’s like if you play the deck right now it’s obviously insane but it’s going to be up against really strong control deck all the classes are getting rid of strong control decks will you discard from Oh yeah I don’t know about that go own the mayor meat wagon bone man is pretty good down there on Devil’s Touareg is really good that’s three week that’s good oh man this is like a really cheap deck this is going to be a scary deck surprisingly they don’t have a control or lock deck Center the fire and ice and it’s basically what I said those cards really good elementals but like six cards from this expansion I don’t see how it keeps up with the incoming new decks so I think that’s probably too weak cool this one is missing ten oh wow yeah this is very strong probably want to try that myself shadow Reapers revenge so what do you play circle healings those things you got the two radiance you got Lyra oh yeah that’s basically what I imagined this would be wait what well if you have if you have shadow Reaper in play okay if you take this deck and turn it into one with Raza to make your hero power zero I actually think it’s a good deck so if you play villain and then play that your hero power is dealing 8/8 that’s like you play to zero cost spells and hit your opponent for 24 that’s not bad I told you guys that card might see some play you can quote me on that all right so like you know half of those vectors shit but you know wizard made them so that means nothing um but almost all of those X are really interesting almost all those X are awesome you’re gonna have a lot of fun in suspension [Music]
