So, fun fact, I didn't forget about this. However as I mentioned in my original post, my wife and I were expecting our first child. Shortly after I made the original thread, after a crazy set of events that snowballed, we had our kid early January some 13 weeks early. 100% of my free time has me in the NICU, so I can't really run this (it seemed to have a tepid response at best anyway) but if someone else wants to run with this, go for it. In the meanwhile, the mobile version of the game is one of the few things I can play in his hospital room. If anyone ever wants to dick around and break the monotony of ladder, hit me up.

It was in your introductory post, I asked you if Majora's Mask was a great Zelda game, or greatest Zelda game. You answered correctly (greatest) and have thought you were a pretty okay guy ever since. Thanks for everything, and good luck in whatever is next for you!
@bisonhero: I think I bought all of like 3 GvG packs total, so in all fairness I don't have a huge spread of cards to choose from. That 2/3 value for 2 though...
And yes, when I say class cards I mean the ones you unlock as you for each class as you level up. Soulfire (which was an awful awful card to nerf) would be a class card, Flame Imp would not.
It's a tricky balance. I love constructed, but feel like if you strip out legendary and epic cards, you're going to see a whole lot of everyone playing the same. If you go all commons and class cards, everyone will play zoo and face hunter. The arena style or hit-it-and-forget it drafts could still favor players with the larger sets, but it's not assured.
For comparison sake, I did one of each drafts for comparison. The first was my arena draft, the second being my HIFI draft. I got a number of legendary cards in both. I don't know if that's repeatable, but here's what I got.
I am by no means the keeper of the tournament, so I'll comment from my perspective as if I were going to set up another. You have my blessing if you want to try to organize and run Scrub League Part Deux. :)
The last one just wrapped up like a week and a half ago, and lasted a grueling 2+ months. It took more than I thought to run the thing, so am recharging my batteries before giving it another go. I got a ton of feedback on the last one, so I think the next one may be different in a number of ways. We may do no legendaries or something to restrict the card pool to choose from to level the playing field a bit, or we may do something dumb like picking a class and having the game generate the deck.
@starvinggamer: If you play it, if you've ever got a few minutes to blow shoot me an invite for a game whenever. I ran into it 3 or 4 times on ladder last night and none of the games were really even competitive. I can only assume my opponent was playing it wrong.

Back when I was in my early teens there was the MSN Gaming Zone. It was a hub for a few retail multiplayer games (I played the ever living shit out of Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2), but also had your run of the mill stuff like checkers, chess, and backgammon. When I wasn't playing SWJK:DF2 I would play checkers and just be a dumb 13 year old kid in chat. I'm from Nebraska and there was a girl from Nebraska I'd play with and chat with quite a bit, but we were on opposite sides of the state. Long after the Zone shut down, her and I continued to exchange emails. Fast forward to 2004 and I was just completing my first year of college and was going through a rough breakup. I was telling her about it through email and for some reason, I asked her if she'd be interested in meeting up. In in 2009 we got engaged, in 2011 we got married, and recently found out we're expecting our first child in April of 2015. :)
