Blizzcon Predictions

As you may have gleaned from my Twitter, or lack of an explosive post about it–I did not hit Legend last month. The furthest I made it was Rank 1 and 2 stars, which is still much further than I’d been before. But I somewhat underestimated what a grind it can be from Rank 5…

BlizzPro Weekly

In case you hadn’t heard elsewhere, my good friend and Lords of the Storm host Gizmozord and I are on the BlizzPro Weekly show now. I just thought I’d point this out here, and also invite you to check this week’s episode out–specifically, I cover Hearthstone near the very end. There’s truly nothing like giving…

#MultiToLegend update: Rank 2 obtained!

Just a quick update on this whole Multi to Legend business. I’d been yo-yoing between Ranks 4 and 6 for some time, but last night for some reason I just hit the right spot with Aggro Druid. I went from Rank 4 to Rank 2! I then dropped a couple stars before going to bed,…

A Case for Consistency – Aggro Druid

Yesterday, I sat down to the longest session of Hearthstone I’ve ever had in one go. I played from about 11 am to 9 pm pretty much straight, starting at Rank 5 and one star. I’d heard that JR from the Well Met podcast (and also kinda my boss through Blizzpro?) had hit legend the…

Ding Dong, the Warsong Commander is Dead!

Today, Blizzard announced that the Warsong Commander is finally receiving the much-demanded nerf it deserves!  This kills the Patron Warrior archetype almost entirely, and good riddance. It’s plagued both the ladder and tournament scene for far too long, in my opinion.  Here’s the link where they talk about their philosophy behind such a nerf: http://us.battle.net/hearthstone/en/forum/topic/19288409377…

The Hearthstone Deck Tracker

I’d seen it on a couple streams, heard about it on a couple podcasts, and been banned from using it by a couple Fireside tournament organizers. But up until this past week, I’d not really experienced the Hearthstone Deck Tracker add-on. I know I’m late to the party on this one, but let me give…

#MultiToLegend Take Two. And…action!

A new season is upon us! And yes, I’m referring both to the Hearthstone ladder and the planetary seasons. The entire Earth is on tilt! Everything is now pumpkin spiced, and news flash: pumpkins taste like utter crap. I’m sorry, but that cookie and beer combo would be better without jack-o-lanterns in it. Note to…

It’s Just a Phase – A Mulligan Discussion

And now, without further ado, I bring you the much-requested, long awaited mulligan phase breakdown! Anyone who’s played enough Hearthstone knows that the mulligan phase of a game can sometimes be the deciding factor of its entire outcome. But getting the most out of your mulligan phase can be far more complicated than you might…

Lethal: Hearthstone Invitational

On a whim last night, I participated in the Convert to Raid Hearthstone tournament. And…spoiler alert…I won! It was put on by Gizmozord’s WoW guild, and he and I were there to represent your Zord Network / Lords of the Storm. We clearly had some similar ideas about how to approach this one, as we…

Druid Domination

Midrange Druid deck from this week’s Tempo Storm Meta Snapshot 30: https://tempostorm.com/hearthstone/decks/28 Midrange Druids have traditionally been my favorite decks to play. I’ve spent entire seasons with them before, and I find myself peppering in a few games with them even now. Consequently, I’m closer to my golden Druid hero portrait than any other class,…
