I'm no hardcore Hearthstone player, but I have been really enjoying the game. With my skills above crap, I've started to make steady progress in Ranked play. Then I reached level 18...
9/10 games are against a priest and in every single one they play Northshire Cleric first. Obviously there is some luck involved here. But as a Mage, dealing 3 damage/polymorph reliably below 4 mana requires incredible luck. By the time the Cleric (or Clerics!) are gone, the opponent has 10+ cards in their hand and probably some decent minions in play.
I'm trying to stack Silence abilities, but this is ridiculous. I will find the right deck to ensure a Cleric stuffer gets in an early hand, but I shouldn't have to. The beauty in this game is the preparation and adaptation of strategy. The game now feels like "Step Right Up and Try to Kill a PRIEST!". It's not about fairness, but FUN.
Chime in if you agree, or have a Priest murdering formula that is also a solid deck for general use.
