I would prefer an "OGRE BRUTALITY" button, where all your minions attack random targets.  That way people on streams accidentally think there is no way they can miss lethal but then they find out the secret is Redemption and the Argent Squire actually soaked up the four strongest attacks and then the guy topdecks Truesilver Wolfrider.  But most of the time when you have lethal you've wiped their board anyway and it doesn't matter.

If you play at higher ranks people just resign when it's over so it's not as big a deal, at lower ranks people like to waste both players' time a lot more.

What are sufficient conditions for there to be no way your face attack could possibly be interrupted? Does this work:

No Taunts on enemy board
No persistent effects on minions (lightning bolt icons)
No enemy secrets
Enemy hero doesn't currently have any Attack (possible through extreme edge cases)

Animated Armor doesn't block attacks outright, but it blocks damage from attacks. I guess that counts as persistent effect.

Enemy hero having attack doesn't interrupt face attack. You'll still attack, only maybe your guy gets some damage too.

Being STOOPID does interrupt it (50% to miss).

How can your minions receive damage from the enemy hero having attack? The opponent's weapon is always put away on your turn.

Edit: Okay, maybe extreme edge cases.

Actually, enemy is wrong. They can get killed from your own weapon (Misdirection).

I think the point of the enemy not having attack was that you aren't going to trigger any problematic deathrattles.

Curiously, there was a bug recently that could give your hero permanent attack.  Wispers with Fandral didn't check where it was being targeted, so you could give your face +5 attack and taunt (as well as filling your board with Wisps).

I got a new computer and I downloaded Hearthstone, but my password is on a notepad file on my laptop.  Which I can go get if I go turn my laptop on.  But every time I think about doing that I ask myself.  Is it worth it.  Do I want to get on the quest treadmill again?  Is Hearthstone something I feel good about playing or a time waster.

I dunno.

Just think about how much effort it was to download it! All that would go to waste if you just deleted it now.

Yes, there is no such thing as the "sunk cost fallacy".

Whatever your choice, if you post it here I will justify it to make you feel better.

Yay, I just got two new WotOG legendaries in two consecutive WotOG packs: Malkorok and Shifter Zerus.

I also have Malkorok and I just opened HealMan the Ascended (or whatever his name is), the Shaman dude. I'm underwhelmed by Shaman dude, but Malkorok is solid.

I know this is the Hearthstone thread, but has anyone here played Faeria yet? It's a really fun digital game played out on a hexagonal board that has some really deep strategy. I have a key to give out to anyone who's interested.

I got it only a few (2?) months ago, and have played 236 hours already.

Strictly on mobile? No. I do play on mobile sometimes when I get inspiration for a deck idea soon before going to sleep and end up playing some games on my phone in my room.

I play way more on mobile than Mac.

I'm on a wicked losing streak...dropped from 14 to 18 without a win.  Not sure what is going on.

Lots of OTK mages and enrage/frothing warriors.

Still running totally custom builds since the WOG release. I keep seeing the same 6 or 7 decks and refuse to believe we've distilled to the best possible decks this quickly. Also, I have not once played Wild which surprises me.

I feel Warrior has the biggest variety of competitive decks. Most of the other classes seem to have only 1 to 2 effective decks they can use.

I haven't got to a very high rank in Wild, but the overall variety in Wild seems higher, naturally.

I've got a warrior pirate deck that still needs some tweaking but definitely wins consistently. Also a Rogue N'Zoth Reno thing that is pretty good although somewhat draw dependent.

It's always fun (in a living on the edge kind of way) to wait till I'm down to a single HP before playing an activated Reno, and then play C'thun the turn after Reno.

On a not-as-fun note, I can't seem to figure out how to aim Perdition's Blade. I play it and it damages myself. How do you play the card without aiming for your own hero?

EDIT: Well, I just bought a classic pack hoping for Cold Blood. No Cold Blood, but I opened my 2nd-ever random* legendary and it's Nozdormu. Ugh. I hate being rushed as it is. I could use some good legendaries. (My first was Illidan Stormrage.)

*I say random to exclude C'Thun, Reno, and Brann Bronzebeard.
