Because of course you summon more Kodos when you have lethal.  :P

Savjz playing Astral Druid against a dragon Handlock. 
"He doesn't play Moltens.  We've seen so many dragons, he doesn't play Moltens."
Warlock plays Molten.
Long tormented pause. 
Double swipe Molten, leaving 3/3 Blackwing Technician and 6 health Warlock.

I don't have screenshots, but I just lost two consecutive arena games, as follows.

Game 1:
Against a mage, doing well, decent hand, he has maybe three cards.  He plays:
Spellslinger, giving him an unstable portal which he plays.
Next turn: Varian from the portal (!), pulls out a justicar and a piloted shredder. 
Most hilarious loss I've ever experienced.  I'm not even sad about it. :)

Game 2:
Winning overwhelmingly against another mage something, massive board and maybe 5 cards in hand.  I'm on 14 health or so but he's not got much.
Turn 10, DEATHWING!
I managed to survive a further 4 or 5 turns by playing out all of the taunts.  Desperately trying to pull an ironbark from my deck.  My losing turn was a starfire to finish off deathwing, which pulled a Druid of the Claw; I think the Druid would have saved me the game if I could have afforded it, I had huge lategame left in my deck.
My increasing desperation as I put taunt after taunt on the board and saw them all disappear would have been great to watch. :)

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.

M Town Wins-Losses (6-2, 75%): 71, 72, 76, 81, 83, 87 - 79, 82.  M Scum Wins-Losses (2-1, 67%): 80, 101 - 70.
RMM Town Wins-Losses (3-1, 75%): 42, 47, 49 - 31.  RMM Scum Wins-Losses (3-3, 50%): 33, 37, 43 - 29, 32, 35.
Modded: M75, M84, RMM38.     Mislynched (M-RMM): None - 42.     Correctly lynched (M-RMM): 101 - 33, 33, 35.       MVPs: RMM37, M87

I just played Varian second time ever.
He pulled Alex, Emperor and Belcher vs Jaraxxus. I got Shadowflamed (who the hell runs 2 shadowflames nowadays?) but it was glorious non-the-less. :D

And I've just Varian'd a FACEHUNTER for lethal (Rag and 2 other fatties). Dropping that card is so satisying, it will never get old :D

I was playing Control Warrior against Face Hunter.

Me: 7 health+armor, 7/5 Dr. Boom, 5/3 Shieldmaiden, 1/4 Armorsmith, a bunch of cards in hand including some expensive minions and a Shield Slam.
Opponent: Enough health to survive this turn, not enough to survive the next, empty board, 1 card in hand.

So I thought that I'd Shield Slam my Dr. Boom for that one extra armor just in case he had a beast and drew a Kill Command (or vice versa). And then he had them.

I played a Mechmage mirror against a Medhiv that threw down a turn 5 Fel Reaver against my Mighty Tinkertown Technician and Clockwork Gnome.  I had reversing switch so I pushed him down to 8/1 and flipped him to 1/8.
He kept curving out turn 6, played a Boom I had to deal with turn 7, and added Fel Reaver turn 8 that didn't mill any decks that wouldn't be milled anyway.  It was a scary amount of pressure to deal with after spending two mininons and 3 mana just to reduce a guy's attack by 7 and drawing Dalaran Mage off Unstable Portal.

Until I topdecked Jeeves :D

He draws cards for you.  And your opponent.

The idea is if you're playing a deck that empties your hand, he will draw you 3 cards right away. If you're opponent is playing a slow deck, they probably can't take advantage of the draw. Also you always get to use the drawn cards first.

To elaborate on this, say it's your turn and your opponent has a Jeeves on board, and you have one card in hand. If you want to get the benefit from Jeeves, you have to leave the minion up, which is sometimes an awkward move against what is probably an aggressive deck. So as the Jeeves player, even if your opponent's deck is one that could benefit from the Jeeves effect, they'll often not be able to do so.

Er, in the situation I specifically mentioned Jeeves tends to draw those extra special "fatigue" cards.

The board was empty. My opponent played a Voidcaller. I played Sylvanas. He played a Hellfire, traded the minions, and gave me a Doomguard.

I don't usually use emotes, but just this time, I think a "my thanks" was pretty appropriate.

On the Arena (Paladin vs. Mage), my opponent gave his Flamewaker +0/+4 and Taunt with a Mark of Nature that he got from his Spellslinger. Then he gave it +2/+2 with a Bolster that he got from his other Spellslinger, making it a 4/10. This dealt a bunch of damage to my Kvaldir Raider, making it a 6/2.

On my turn, I used my hero power, played the Shadowform I had gotten from one of his Spellslingers, then I used my hero power, and killed the Flamewaker with my 10/6 Kvaldir Raider.

It was pretty nice that the Spellslingers gave him a nice synergy which could have put me into a pretty uncomfortable situation, but that they also happened to give me the perfect counter.

NEXUS-CHAMPION SARAAD IS THE BEST CARD IN THE GAME

3/5 -> Dark Wispers into 8/10 -> run into Deathlord?

While I was trying to get to rank 5 (successfully, as it turned out later) with midrange Hunter, I won a game that I was totally losing against a Mage who had two Flamewakers (one with summoning sickness), some 6/6 minion he got from Unstable Portal and a 0/2 Taunt, and lots of health. I had a 3/1 weapon and a 6/9 Gahz'rilla I got from Webspinner, a Freezing Trap, and it was his turn. He played some spells, hit the Gahz'rilla a few times bringing it down to 6 health, attacked it with the 6/6, used the oops emote, played some more spells and had the Flamewakers mostly hit my face. At the start of my turn, I had a 96/1 Gahz'rilla and he resigned.

I have a 6/3 Bloodsail Raider against an empty board.

My opponent (Druid) plays Madder Bomber and takes all 6 hits to the face.
