http://hearthstoneplayers.com/nubas-legendary-midrange-shaman-deck/Havent had any time to ladder this season but it sounds like Shaman has taken off at the to end of the legend ladder. Shaman is so stagnent, most decks looking exactly the same minus 5 cards or something, so I was wondering if anyone knew what these top level players were playing; is it different than the norm?
Also who else thinks July 15th for Naxx :)) plus we finally get pricing on the 1st! #gettinhyped
Well i've played AGAINST it so many times I know exactly when the Gadgetzaan is coming out and when the Si7 combo-spam will begin. Most of the time I'm helpless unless I'm running a deck prepped to counter it (works half the time)... So If I know the by-heart, the exact progression of a deck which I have never personally played, I'm pretty sure it's one dimensional and hence (by my subjective definition) mindless.Not sure if you've ever played Miracle if you call it mindless.
Miracle requires a lot of min maxing with your dagger and looking several turns ahead to what you'll optimally want to do.Well i've played AGAINST it so many times I know exactly when the Gadgetzaan is coming out and when the Si7 combo-spam will begin.

I'm not particularly sold on Farsight as a card, I can see where it would be cool but as a deck thinner it seems unreliable next to things like Thalnos and Drake, even if you're playing a high curve. Its not like Preparation, for example, where you get to select what card to cheapen. Maybe because I'm not overly experienced with CCGs but from what I understand, aren't you basically 2-for-1ing yourself?It looks like a less optimized version of my deck x)
Same kind of basis except Blademaster is just a bad card and I cycle through cards with Farsight and whatnot.
It's better than it was, that's for sure. I still consider it a bad deck the same way I think the the burn Mage deck is bad. Because it's so unreliant on minions and what spells you have it's entirely dependent on the top deck and the cards you mulligan. Not saying it doesn't require skill but I would never choose a deck that is so luck-based to actually play. My deck roster contains Miracle and burn Mage, but they're rarely my go-to decks unless I'm facing a lot of a certain kind (a lot of Warrior I'll play some Miracle and a lot of Miracle I'll play burn). However I would't consider them just an overall solid deck.well, when naxx was announced, they said they would release areas in stages. so the first one will be released, and it is free. then they will release the rest over time, and I believe prices will increase with each stage.
I'm just hoping that it's a one-time fee type of thing. like if you lose, you can re-challenge it for free, and it doesn't take multiple playthroughs to unlock everything.
also, mana wraith is a bad response to rogue in general. they can backstab, deadly poison blade, fan or blade flurry with one hit, etc.
also, miracle rogue is a really good deck now that it runs more minions. it's a lot more consistent now than it was a few months ago when all the minions it ran were pagle, leeroy, SI:7, and gadgetzan.
I don't know if you're trolling or not but I'm glad others are finally chiming in on how good Miracle is. Also Forsen is concurrently #1 on NA and EU using only Miracle Rogue and its still the go to tournament deck. So you saying its a horrid deck can't be from you just thinking of it in a strictly ladder or strictly tournament scene.Oh yeah it's a horrid deck.
