124 - Velen's Chosen: Wild Druid & Furbolgs
This week, the wandering three discuss Furbolg Lore, a Wild Malygos Druid deck, and talk at length about potential issues we have with cards and deck archetypes in the game that Blizzard may or may not be looking into changing with the news updates!
- This weeks Brawl: Shadow Reflection (Eve had a cool deck idea for this one ;) Build a deck of any size and we’ll fill the rest of the deck with Shadow Reflections.
- Blizzard Posts interesting deck lists (they hope this blog will become a regular thing):Quote from Jesse Hill
- Stancifka Quest Mage. Stancifka's deck went through many iterations; however, this version (with an impressive 73% win rate!) seemed to serve him best.
- Minionless Hunter. On the China server, 小青藤 piloted this deck to a 65% win rate.
- Shaman evolution. Jambre's Arcane Giants/Unstable Evolution deck went through 15 different revisions during its run, but he achieved a 68% win rate with this version.

- Twitch Prime members got two free Kobold and Catacombs card packs.
- Quote from Ben Brode: Been reading discussions about balance; we have an update coming next month which includes some cool events, and that is when any balance changes would happen. We'll be sure to announce any changes as the patch gets closer. See you at the HCT World Championship next week!
- Arena cards are coming….soon ™ - Quote from Ben Brode and Mike Donais
- What happened to "Arena only" card's that were shown on Blizzcon? It’s still coming! (Ben Brode)
- Mike Donais We are going to add them to arena in a few months.
We do it then usually because it’s when people are most bored with constructed. We just focus on making the game as fun as possible, and keeping the game fresh and interesting is an important goal for us.
Often we discuss the dip in excitement around “month 3” of the expansion cycle, and how to make the game more fun in that period. Cool events is one of those tools. Sometimes it’s an Arena event, but it was Double-Gold once too. We have some other fun ideas still to come! (Ben Brode)
