Interesting. This is a case where I haven't seen it used against myself in a significant way, but definitely I should play with it in Play mode to see its potential. I think you're right though.
I didn't expect to get two demolishers. I wonder if some players have guessed the draft algorithm somehow. It does look like you often get 2 or 3 of some cards.

2-3. Didn't get to play it as much as I'd like because one disconnect counted as a loss. It looked pretty bad for me though because it was the second game in a row with a Paladin that used the epic 1/5 Sword of Justice (Whenever you summon a minion, give it +1/+1 and this loses 1 durability.
). That seems to give a significant advantage in the early rounds... for 3 mana.

Damn that's nice. I'm beginning to grok "aggro" style. Having fun in Ranked with a deck inspired by Reynad's Warrior
. Surprisingly decent even without all the good cards. I'm kind of plateau-ing at rank 17 losing one, winning one, but I'm not able to craft yet Frothing Berserker x2, Mortal Strike x2, and another Bloodsail Raider. And I definitely make mistakes so it's a good learning. Like last fail against a Mage, I held off from using Weapon,; but I could have gone to her face with Heroic Strike for +7 and a Yeti. Instead I held off, then she use Frost Nova, and then next turn the Water Elemental so I lost my opportunity to bring her to 15 when I'm at 28.
I'm really glad I setup a recording solution. OBS is super easy to use. I've learned quite a few things already just replaying my losses. The idea is I can connect to an actual experience I had. A good example in this Arena win vs Priest
even though I won, I think at 19m20s I could have played better. Brewmaster seems like a decent play: I get to save my Demolisher which was silenced, I don't lose a card and put down a 3/2 but then I play Stormwind. This is a case of inattention where I believed the Squire was 4/4 in my mind, and it would survive after exchanging with Game Hunter, and the 2/2 > 3/3 would kill the Acolyte, so in theory it looked good. Had I played Dark Scale instead I would have had a 4/5 which was safe from Shadow Words, the 4/3 would be healed to 4/4 and take the Acolyte, and the 2/2 could be sacrificed against the Big Game Hunter. Now I'd have had a 4/3, 4/5, 3/2 against a 3/2 and Stormwind still up next turn. Priest would probably have used Shadow Pain vs 3/2 but then Storwind would buff the 4/5 into 5/6 and potentially the Demolisher into a 2/5.
Quote:And again! So irritating, I wonder how they match players in arena. Do they start you of with people, who haven't won and then increase the difficulty by leting you play oponents, who have won previous matches?
It's supposed to be the case but according to some Reddit threads that matchups are not always following this scenario.
