Hearthstone Old Gods (1)

I’ve got a small confession to make: I’m not actually two meters tall, according to my Tinder profile. Shocking stuff, I know. Even more shocking however is that I’ve been out of the Hearthstone game for quite some time now. New expansions rose, old rules fell and many a card has been nerfed since I last slapped a deck together.

Anyway, I’ve been considering getting back into Hearthstone, partly because I kind of miss yelling it out the whole time for no good reason. HEARTHSTONE! Here’s a taste of what I got with 50 packs to sort through. I think I got at least three gold cards. Gold is good, right?

And if you don’t have time for video, here’s a small sampling of the cards I received after watching tentacles explode 50 times. Man, like one of those Japanese animated films that I totally haven’t seen.

  • Ancient Shieldbearer
  • Blackwater Pirate
  • Bloodsail Cultist
  • C’thun’s Chosen
  • Cult Apothecary
  • DOOM
  • Doomcaller
  • Eldritch Horror
  • Faceless Behemoth
  • Fiery Bat
  • Forlorn Stalker
  • Hooded Acolyte
  • Hogger, Doom of Elwynn
  • Infested Tauren
  • Mark of Y’Shaarj
  • Nerubian Prophecy
  • N’Zoth’s First Mate
  • Power Word: Tentacles
  • Primal Fusion
  • Selfless Hero
  • Shadow Word: Horror
  • Shatter
  • Silithid Swarmer
  • Skeram Cultist
  • Spawn of N’Zoth
  • Southsea Squidface
  • Squirming Tentacle
  • Steward of Darkshire
  • Stormcrack
  • Tentacle of N’Zoth
  • Twilight Geomancer
  • Undercity Huckster
  • Usher of Souls

Now to make some sort of sense with all these cards, and turn them into a potent deck. And see just how much Hearthstone has changed lately. One thing that I have seen so far, according to pro Hearthstone players, is that the Rogue class has managed to actually remain pretty useful even after having a nerf applied to Blade Flurry. The character is now apparently better to use thanks to new toys, especially for anyone that likes to go heavy on the Deathrattle.

The forums have also been full of tips lately to create Miracle Rogue decks, something which sounds very appealing when I manage to understand every fourth word written on those boards, as Hearthstone has some seen some BIG meta-changes over the last year. Which means that I’m essentially approaching the game back from square one.

But with a ton of new cards to back me up.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
