I had that happen once in GvG. I got two Foe Reapers in 1 pack. Never happened since.

Odds of getting 2 legendaries should be very, very low but getting the same 2 legendaries seems vanishingly small. I mean, all 5 cards being the same Golden legendary I suppose has the lowest possible odds of occurring which would make the odds of the same 2 regular legendaries look positively common.

My quest Rogue opponent had 2 Novice Engineers, 2 Shadowsteps and a Preparation by turn 4.

How do you beat quest rogue besides them just drawing bad? Like Ive had a number of games like that, and it just seems like you can't beat it.

If Quest Rogue draws super well, I think you're out of luck unless you are playing a deck that can snowball in the first few turns then draw super well yourself. So like, Murloc Paladin and Token Druid come to mind. Maybe Silence Priest, but I can't imagine Silence Priest beating the hand above.

I actually played a game today where the opposing Quest Rogue got Small Time Recruits from Swashbuckler. That was painful, even for my budget Murloc rush Paladin.

Yeah, it's basically the same as when OTK priest draws well and you don't. You're dead on turn 5. I see both as high risk, high reward strategies although it sure seems like Quest Rogue is lower risk.

By running cards that have more value than a 5/5, or by being a faster aggro deck. I'm pretty much 50-50 with quest Warrior against quest Rogue, and I think the matchup is probably in my favor but I haven't been playing amazingly well every time and sometimes the opponent has had draws like I described. I don't think quest Rogue is the best deck in the current meta, even.

Absolutely not.

Heck, I've beaten Quest Rogues with Elemental Shaman (granted drawing Flametongue Totem is clutch in that matchup). Sometimes I get lucky and am able to buy some time because the Quest Rogue played Igneous Elemental and I am able to Hex/Devolve it.

I got to rank 5 this season with Elemental Shaman. I'm surprised at how it managed to hold its own against control decks as well as aggro decks.
