Boomsday Project

New Legendary revealed today, and it's one of the greatest I've seen. Whizbang the Wonderful: mana 4/5 neutral legendary. At the start of the game, he replaces your deck with one of the 18 most recent deck recipes. No, it's not competitive, but he's a perfect f2p legendary. Now you don't have grind for hours on end or empty your wallet to experience the latest expansion. It allows for the testing of a certain deck or archetype before you spend you hard-earned dust on it. Many people like myself only play the game intermittently. You could leave the game for 3 years, come back, and still be able to play with up to 540 new cards. Granted, many of the deck recipes are rather bad, but they have improved over time.

Yeah it seems the new Legendary gives you one of the most recent deck recipes, meaning the decks he gives you changed over time with the new sets. If this is true, then it's an excellent card for new players. On the other hand, this could mean that most new players are using it, so you have to contend with your own kind pretty often, but hey there are 18 possible decks he can give at any one time.

So I popped Mecha'Thun, and I'd actually really like to make a deck with him.  I was thinking Warlock might be the best fit, since you can draw a lot with your hero power, and Dark Pact and the mech cost reducer would let you play and destroy Mecha'Thun on the same turn.  Anyone else have any ideas?

I've seen people use Bloodbloom and Cataclysm with Mecha'thun. That way you don't need to worry about cleaning out the rest of your hand before the combo.

Yeah, that sounds good, might try that.  Would need two mech cost reducers, but that's fine.  Was definitely thinking of throwing in the Soularium to speed up deck cycling.  Then just fill the rest of the deck with cheap stuff, Loot Hoarders, Novice Engineers, Acolytes of Pain, maybe a couple Twisting Nethers.

Had someone Dollmaster Dorian into Juicy Psychmelon, drawing Dreampetal Florist, Lich King, and Hadronox.

Alternatively, you play more control-like and draw your deck more naturally.

What's cool about the Soularium is that you can play it while under Bloodbloom to draw the last few cards of your deck if necessary.

I opened the two Mage Legendaries. Maybe they'll help for Elemental Mage. Also I briefly tried a Standard Mech Hunter deck based around those 0/2 Goblin Bombs with the Leper Gnome deathrattle since I opened the Legendary Hunter Minion. I feel like there are enough Mechs and Mech token generators to make the Magnetic mechanic rather potent.

None of what any of you ahve said made any sense, which suggests I've been away from Hearthstone for too long.  Probably a good thing, that.
