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.

Ive got double legend a few times since open beta (3 years. wow) But yeah its really low.

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.

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.

Freezes, doomsayers, kill their minions before they can lay eggs, just deny them ever having a board.  Also dragon/fel-fire potions can clear them.

Nothing quite takes the wind out of their sails like a counterspell to the crystal core. It can be tough because they will play around it if at all possible.

Agreed.  It's just frustrating when they get the god-draw.  If they're completing their quest AND prepping out the Core by turn 3/turn 4, you're pretty much screwed.

Yes, I've tried the deck for a bit and it doesn't actually come together as reliably as it appears to for your opponents.

Seems like there's a hidden setting that ensures when you play against Quest Rogue it always works and when you play the deck itself you never draw right.

Quest Rogue plays Crystal Core on T4 or T5 99% of the time against me (this may be an exaggeration, but not by much).  It's just too easy to meet the requirements with all of the Panda-style cards available.  You have Panda, Combo Boat Guy, Shadowstep...or you just use elementals.

I can see how a Mage with freeze/poly/counterspell can specifically play against it.  Not much else has specific outs against multiple 5/5s.

Dragonfire potion works.  A control priest deck works if it's teched right - unless they draw badly and the rogue draws epically.

Dragonfire Potion is still far from a total solution if the Rogue doesn't overextend and/or plays Crystal Core early.

So there's Poly early to block multiple minion plays or freeze/dragon fire potion the 5/5s.

Unless you tech against it, quest Rogue with half-decent draw wins.

Perhaps 90-93% would be a more accurate estimate?

True.  But I stand by my statement.  I have a solidly positive win rate as control priest against Quest Rogue.

What could have been a very frustrating loss for me was dispelled by how marvelous the win actually was.

I am playing against Token Druid with my Elemental Shaman. I've been holding off my opponent rather well, even managing to hex a Bittertide Hydra. My opponent goes all out on a final push, with a Finja proc, Bloodsail Corsair + Patches, a Second Bittertide Hydra, and Mark of the Lotus. My opponent is left with one card after this.

My turn, I have the option of playing Kalimos or Al'Akir (thanks, Discover), among a few other cards. I have to play Kalimos to clear the board, leaving a 9/6 Bittertide Hydra. I have only 5 more damage on the board, so I cannot kill the Hydra.

Opponent's turn. Draws a card, empties two card hand with Savage Roar -> Savage Roar -> Hero Power for exact lethal.

Thing is, my opponent needed EXACTLY Bittertide Hydra to pull this off. If Hydra didn't have at least 8 health, I coul trade it off the board. If Hydra didn't have at least 8 attack, my opponent would miss lethal and I could maybe bounce back to win the game with Al'Akir. If Bittertide Hydra costed more, my opponent would not be able to build as big of a board to force my Kalimos.

All that considered, this win for my opponent was pretty epic (get it, because Bittertide Hydra is an epic).

Playing as Druid against Hunter, both rank 21 after monthly reset.

T1: Hunter passes, I innervate a Crypt Lord.
T2: Hunter resigns, friends me.

I accept, loving trolls and on the off chance he's a newbie looking for quest friends.

"cheating and netdecking at 21.  sad" then I friends me.

It's a funny tweet-sounding message, but also seems odd.  What about my T1 play got that response?
