Finally got a Golden Rogue. While it's my favorite class, I think I'm done taking it into ranked matches.
I vote for TOZ as the most gangsta~  :otomerika:

Lots of stuff happening. Whispers of the Old Gods should be dropping tomorrow and Standard/Wild formats will start officially.

Ben Brode announced on a stream with Frodan that if you log in during the launch day, you will get three free Old Gods packs. Also everyone will get a copy of C'Thun and some cultists.

BUT not only that, you will get a quest: win two games of Standard for a reward of five Old Gods packs!
Wait, that's not all! After you finish that quest you get another: win seven more games of Standard for a reward of another five Old Gods packs!

If your quest log is full, the WotOG quests will replace your quest with the least progress, so no need to panic about that.

So that's a total of 13(!) packs. You can check what you might get with this neat simulator.

Classic set got a ton of nerfs, here's a synopsis:

Class cards (druid, hunter, rogue):
Ancient of Lore - Now only draws one card.
Force of Nature - Cost reduced from 6 to 5. Treants are permanent, but no longer have charge.
Keeper of the Grove - Health reduced from 4 to 2.
Hunter's Mark - Cost increased from 0 to 1.
Master of Disguise - Now only gives Stealth until your next turn.
Blade Flurry - Cost increased from 2 to 4. Only targets enemy minions.

Neutral cards:
Ironbeak Owl - Cost increased from 2 to 3.
Big Game Hunter - Cost increased from 3 to 5.
Knife Juggler - Attack reduced from 3 to 2.
Leper Gnome - Attack reduced from 2 to 1.
Arcane Golem - Health increased from 2 to 4. No longer has Charge.
Molten Giant - Cost increased from 20 to 25.

Druid, my staple class, got a huge nerf, aw. Well, I got a ton of dust, at least.

The nerfs are already active, and for a week(?) you can disenchant all these cards for their full price, so go and disenchant them all, even if you think you'd still use some of them later.

^That stream was hilarious, especially when Yogg Shadowstepped himself.

Even though I mostly played combo Druid, I'm glad they were nerfed hard. Staghelm looks like he'll be a fun card, though. Besides that, pleased that standard is finally dropping, because I'm tired of Loatheb & Dr. Boom popping up in every deck. I've only been playing Tavern Brawl because it's so annoying.

Have my pre-order and gold ready for tomorrow. With the free packs, I'm looking at about 80 packs this week. Dusted most of the nerfed cards, sitting on  ~4000 dust now, too :thumbup

I've been saving gold for this. So far I can get 27 packs, plus the 3 free ones, then I could possibly get another 10. Fuck me, I should play standard then. I will probably default to wild, cause it's just my style.

C'thun Priest for best deck. Had a nice game with a warrior yesterday. After he killed my C'Thun, I Doomcaller'ed, then entombed his C'Thun. He conceded after that. :cathappy:

Shaman is pretty fun right now, too, but I can't quite get a win streak with my deck.

Mostly play Hearthstone anymore. The new expansion looks pretty dope. Glad to see mechs back in a big way and Magnetic looks like a decent keyword.

edit: my first golden legendary was Duskfallen Aviana. Coulda been better.
