I was already beating a the guys face in, but I Shadow madness'ed a druid's Sludge Belcher and Recombobulated it and got Mimiron's head.  It procced the very next turn, it was my fourth mech.

I got a Cho out of a Shredder, and my opponent's only card was an Unstable Portal, so we went back and forth getting random minions, which was a lot of fun (kind of like arena), until he got a Deathwing... Fortunately, I had a Mind Control, and my final Unstable Portal (now that Cho was dead) drew Windspeaker!

In an arena match, while nearing death, my opponent played a secret.  So I played zombie chow into mirror entity, killed his new zombie chow, and got the health I needed (with some opponent misplays I think-not that I'm good enough to really tell).  Managed to win.  It was half my wins in my 2-3 arena!

Wuh?

Reminds me, why does Blessed Champion cost so much? Like, Blessing of Might is 1 mana and gives +3 attack. Blessed Champion would need to give +12-15 attack to be comparable.

Because double Blessed Champion is so much more insane than double Blessing of Might.

Hm, fair enough. Also, it can make for really crazy sudden finishes if it costed less I guess. It's not a design that's easy yo balance.

They don't want people to play it, so they overpriced it.

Which begs the question: why did they keep it in the game? Even in arena, I think I see it less often than Kidnapper  and Foresight.

There's a deck I have called "#blessed" which may interest you.

No way. Those cards are up a rarity and way worse. I have definitely picked blessed champion way more than the other 2. It's definitely arena playable.

No, although that's not a terrible idea. My guess is that it'd be too hard to keep on the board long enough to pump up.

Same reason as why they've kept Magma Rager in game - you need to have bad cards.

Also, cards like Blessed Champion and Magma Rager are cards that could conceivably become good in the future. They've got unusual stats and effects which aren't usable with the current card pool, but could be good if cards which play to their strengths are released.

Just played a (relatively) fun game Control Priest vs Fatigue Mage. Since I had Cabaled one of his Deathlords and he didn't Duplicate or Echo the other one, I was only into fatigue 1 card faster. My very last card was a Thoughtsteal, which I used to copy his last card -- an Echo! I was able to play it to copy a Cultist, Blademaster, and Alexstrazsa (he couldn't BGH it until the next turn since he had just drawn the BGH off his Coldlight last turn)! Even though he was able to Echo a BGH, Healbot, and Illuminator with Ice Block up and full health, since I knew he had no burn left, I was able to let my life get low, Alex up to 15 to buy 2 more turns, and hit him in the face for enough damage that his fatigue killed him through Ice Block!

Despite the 20 minutes of utter boredom leading up to that end game, I came away with quite a positive feeling after the match.

I'm playing arena against a Shaman.

I'm minding my own business, dropping Frothing Berzerker against an empty board on turn 3, and then 2x Dust Devil, Frost Shock on Berzerker. The hell?

I did win that game, but it was very close. If I had lost that game, I would have been so mad.

You won a game as warrior in arena. That's  a best moment in itself.

^Boo. I like Warrior. It's one of my better classes. It's risky because if you get no weapons you don't have much since you lack a meaningful hero power, but if you get a few weapons it's not hard to at least get 7+ wins. The general class card quality is pretty high.

Now if it was Warlock...

I went 4-3 with Warlock the other day and felt pretty good about it. Warlock is hard. Warrior is just weapon dependent, pretty average arena class imo. They've got a weak hero ability, but generally good class cards. (Warlocks have pretty bad class minions when compared to most other classes and rely too much on getting good neutral minions.)

I just played a turn 5 Loatheb. My opponent then coined out a... oh wait... resign. Oh the fun of grinding through low ranks...

Neptulon gave me three Murk Eyes.

Warrior opponent eventually resigned, friended me just to complain, then unfriended.

I don't know why so many people do this. If you're not going to wait for a response, what's the point? If you don't want a response, why can't you just complain to yourself?
