I've played some arena since Un'Goro release and I've been having more fun with it than with arena in a long time. (Though it's been months since I've played much arena.) After the set rotation, the restriction to standard makes a huge difference, and upped spell chance is nice.

I had a 3/5 Sen'jin. My opponent had a 3/1 Wild Pyromancer and a 2/1 murloc. Then he Fireballed my Sen'jin.

But were you a Warrior? Your opponent could have been trying to play around Mortal Strike while feeding spells to Yogg Saron.

I thought about an edge case with Drakonid Crusher trying to play around Big Game Hunter and Yogg Saron, but Drakonid Crusher is a Wild card now and it's unlikely that your opponent was holding on to a Wild Arena deck.

It's a pretty depressing misplay.

I just played against a Shaman who played three activated Stone Sentinels in a row.

I don't get people who pick Poisonous for Volcanosaur. I guess there are some edge case scenarios where it's actually good (like you need it to kill a big minion and you didn't get the +3 Attack option), but sometimes people pick it for no apparent reason at all. It already kills most minions to begin with, why would you need to have Poisonous?

Sometimes I choose Poison because I'm paranoid and think it might be better than Taunt and Deathrattle or I already chose Divine Shield. Turn 7 and beyond, there is a chance Bog Creeper and the 6/10 taunt are coming down pretty soon, or possibly even an opposing Volcanosaur. Poisonous feels like the kind of thing you choose when you are ahead on the board and want to have an answer ready for a big minion (probably with taunt) that can turn things around.

Ive picked it once, when I had got stealth for the first, and was offered:
Can't be targetted, +3 attack and poisonous.

The poison was more valuable because my opponent's only out was to draw a masdive taunt.  Didnt need the attack.

Outside of edge cases like that, yeah its not usually good.

The best reason to lynch Haddock is the meltdown we get to witness on the wagon runup. I mean, we should totally wagon him every day just for the lulz.
