So I beat the bosses on normal, basically just ramp druid them all and the Hero challenge (Hunter wsa pretty fun).

Heroic mode is proving to be a bit of a challenge. I managed to beat Lotheb very easily with this budget preiest deck. Basically mulligan for SW Death, a Sergant and something else and fill the board and foce the spore summons.

This seems like a pretty useful Budget guide to heroic as well.

@bisonhero: My memory was that shit was one fire for about 30 minutes and than it was just laggy as hell but you could play, turns would just take 15 secodns

@mrsmiley: It's a sense of entitlement that I think the Games Industry as imbued within them with their full price nickle and dime tactics when it comes to DLC and other extra content. The games industry is the only place I've seen such shameless nickle and dime tactics. Sure CD's have an exclusive track for a given retailer (physical or otherwisE) but it's also not that big a deal. HEre we have people trying to get you to pay 60 and than an extra 20 right away.

I find the value judgements described to be absurd but I can attempt to see where they'are coming from.

It's not a lack of cards it's a lack of knowledge on how to get as much value out of the cards you have. Which is understandbale if you just start.

I think someone already did but I'd recomend watching some of Trump's videos just as a means of seeing games where he talks through his thought processes. He's currently doing a F2P Rogue run. Here's a list of the decks he uses with a section for basic only and his F2P decks (and their "final forms"), Strong fundamentals can get you real far.

Also try out a Zoo Deck, teaches you a lot about board control and mulliganing that sorta stuff but i also real cheap to make in terms of dust.

And in the end if that's not doing it for you go wild mke some weird shit that is gimmicky as heck and just go for it.

Guardians Guardian Guardian Guardian Guardian and hey maybe Boyhood will open up somewhere close by me so I can actually see it!

I'm oddly interested in Expendables 3 it looks more like Expendables 1 in that it's a bunch of old action heroes dealing with their age and sins and not like Expendables 2 that just went full dumb 80s action parody without any foundation.

@brodehouse: Well put I was going to post something similar.

I wonder if HHG has read anything by Wesely Morris, he writes on Grantland has won the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism and is black.

I'm a white guy and don't think I consciously only look for white writers but also hey more well spoken voices is a good thing. I think HHG delivery undose some of the points he's trying to make but overall I get where he's coming from.

Yes you posted the Walo Lugi ode I head about it on Idle Thumbs.

@bisonhero: Widow is kinda just a Zoo Deck so that negates the power. The real hard one for me was Anub'Rekon but that's just countered with ramp druid and heavy taunts that can survive and favorably trade with the 4/4.

I'm curious to see how the next wings are tuned considering it wouldn't strictly speaking be open to a bunch of fresh players right away.
