Of the DC shows I've only seen much of the Flash. It's fun, but I haven't had a lot of time with it. Never been that compelled to watch any of the others.

I think it depends on what you are looking for in each of the shows. Daredevil probably has the best fight scenes, Legion the best plot and cinematography, Jessica Jones the most interesting themes.

Iron Fist is probably the most disappointing. Iron Fist is supposedly a martial arts show, but the action is mostly pretty forgettable. I liked the scene with the drunken master, but that was just because they focused a little more on the other actor. I'm actually watching Iron Fist while I write this, it's definitely the worst of the Marvel shows I've seen. I didn't like Agents of Shield when the plots got too tied into themselves, but it had it's moments.

Legion on the other hand is probably the most compelling of the shows, but it doesn't even feel like it's in the same universe as the other shows. It's got mutants and the X symbol everywhere, but it certainly doesn't feel like a superhero show in the sense that every other show we've been discussing is.

Jessica Jones is terrible if you look at the details too hard (inconsistencies with Kilgrave's powers, why is Jessica Jones a super hero at all, does she ever do detective work unrelated to Kilgrave), but it's probably the most interesting when you look at it as more of an allegory for those who survive abuse and overcome it. It's got interesting trappings. Luke Cage does similar things along a different theme.

If I had to rate the Marvel shows I'd say:

Legion >>>>>>>>>>>>> Daredevil (season 1) > Jessica Jones > Daredevil (season 2) > Luke Cage > Agent Carter > Agents of Shield > Iron Fist (I can barely pay attention to it when the Meachum's/Hogarth/Claire aren't on screen).

Baby Driver, a new Edgar Wright film, has two trailers out now. Premise is that Baby is the best getaway driver, but he needs to listen to music while doing his job. (meaning every car chase scene will be synced to music). I'd recommend this one (the international one) which seems more aimed at the director's fans as opposed to the other one which appears to be aimed at people who don't know the director.

They're both really fun cards, but also very silly cards.

Priests and Shamans seem so strong right now that I almost can't remember a time when they weren't the OP classes.

The Year of the Mammoth announcements got me to stop hoarding dust and craft a Ragnaros. Now I've got the full Hall of Fame set. Which means I'll be getting 3200 dust (plus whatever you get for the commons and rares) come new year launch. You guys still playing Hearthstone make sure you've got those built for the free dust?

You guys see Legion? First episode was pretty good, second one out tomorrow.

I wish I'd played the Boss one more, I only played as Warrior (Grim Guzzler) for a quest and it was a mirror match. Should have tried some of the others out.

I'm thinking about seeing Silence, since it is getting rave reviews. Anyone seen it here?

Also, I'm obviously going to go watch the film that pertains to a certain sci-fi series that you may or may not have heard about.

You know the one.

You're going to watch Jodorowsky's Dune? If you weren't planning on it I would recommend it. Excellent documentary.

Aside from the fact that you keep saying it's terrible nothing you described really sounded that bad and the clip makes it look interesting anyways. I haven't seen this movie, but I've always heard good things about Takeshi (the director's) work. Maybe you're being too critical?

Anywho, the reason I came on was to say that I'd seen Inherent Vice and the more I think about it, the more I like it. The plot, told through the lens of two drug-addled narrators, is difficult to follow, but it all made sense in the end. The acting was great, there were lots of amazing individual scenes and my only complaint was that it felt like it dragged on a bit too long. Maybe could've upped the pacing a bit, but then some of the plot points might have fallen apart. There's lots of fantastic cameos though in the movie and it felt like a movie that landed somewhere between The Master, Chinatown and the Big Lebowski.

They're also punishing the lower tiers of performance too:

Quote from: bbrode
This brawl is pretty different. We want it to feel more like a tournament, and so the rewards are weighted heavily towards the high end of wins. The reward for 0 wins is a single pack. If this scares you, you may want to wait for next week's Brawl and just enjoy the fun on Twitch. :)

How do you feel about Arcanosmith? That card feels really bad to me and I've never seen it perform very well.

I had high hopes for Roadies because I loved Almost Famous, but man did I hate that show. I also felt that everyone in the show was just some archetype from a movie and didn't act like humans. The most realistic character to me felt like the corporate shill who apparently "didn't get the music". At least that guy was trying to do something. The worst was probably the skateboarding roadie who was some sort of manic pixie dream girl stereotype at what seemed to be its worst. She'd skateboard around backstage to somehow get things done faster and have many moody conversations about trying to find herself? I only watched two episodes.

I think the first one is probably better, the second ones doesn't have durable enough minions to always have something to buff.

Playing Priest against Yogg Mage.

I've got board advantage and a win if he can't win this turn. I have 3 minions and 11 health. He has 1 card and 10 health. Plays Yogg has played like 10 spells this game. Yogg says "F^&* this" Explosive Shots himself and then immediately Pyroblasts the Mage. Worst luck I have seen on a Yogg play.

Saw Joshy last night. It has a nice mix of humour and heart. Would recommend it.

Any of you guys watch Andy Daly's show Review (Sometimes called Review with Forrest MacNeil)? Pretty great. Only watched the first season so far, but it's really funny. The premise is that it's about Forrest MacNeil, a reviewer who reviews life experiences at people's request. In the first episode he reviews Stealing; Addiction; Going to Prom. He's not particularly silly as a character, but takes things very seriously and the jokes come out of how seriously he takes reviewing life. Looking forward to watching the second season which is already out and they've announced that the third will be the last.

Haven't been playing as much lately, but just drafted a Paladin Menagerie deck that went really far:

1 x Goldshire Footman
1 x Gadgetzan Lancer
1 x Holy Strength
1 x Argent Protector
1 x Equality
1 x Faerie Dragon
1 x Jeweled Scarab
1 x Netherspite Historian
1 x Youthful Brewmaster
1 x Blackwing Technician
2 x Muster
1 x Nightbane Templar
1 x Pantry Spider
1 x Seal of Champions
1 x Sword of Justice
2 x Zoobot
1 x Consecration
1 x Gnomish Inventor
1 x Keeper of Alduman
1 x Murloc Knight
1 x Stormwind Knight
1 x Azure Drake
1 x Solemn Vigil
2 x Tigers
1 x Tuskarr Jouster
1 x Moat Lurker
1 x Eadric the Pure

Been really impressed with Moat Lurkers and Nightbane Templars. Less so with Zoobots even though they almost always hit in this deck. Eadric is really good too.

Edit: Ended up going 10-3. 170 gold a pack, a gold common and a normal rare. Pretty good!

This deck just happened. Most amazing tempo deck I've ever drafted. Not pictured, Thing from Below.

That Amgam rager though. Otherwise, this deck is not fair. 12-0.

It was a misclick :(

Hey, that sounds like WotC's new design philosophy.

If everyone has the same thing it evens out though right?

I don't love it tbh because once you're topdecking you are really dependent on getting good randoms.
