Do We HAVE to run two Sheep?

Posts: 1,718
Just opened Antonidas, and I'm not sure what to cut to make room for him. So I'm wondering, how important is it to run two polymorph? Do YOU run two polymorph, and if not, how do you fare with just one?

.... YOU ALWAYS RUN TWO SHEEP! With any class you run two of their hard removal.

It actually depends on your build. If you're running the Antonidas Freeze Mage, you don't run any sheep...

Nah, running a midrange. I guess 2 sheeps is a must.

If u consider Frostbolts and Fireballs as removal - no sheeps needed (or 1 if u don't have TBK).
If u consider Frostbolts and Fireballs ONLY as burn - 2 sheeps is a must.

Mid-range here but I run only one. To supplement it, I also carry BGH and Iron-beak owl.

Always run 2 polys.

I have an antonidas malygos leeroy deck all-in-one and i still have room for 2 polys.

Do stop running Polymorph. It would make it easier for me to play control against a Mage.

i don't think you necessarily have to run poly's. it really comes down to your type of playstyle and what type of deck you run with.

personally i have 1 in my deck, simply because i've been running into druids to the left and right and needed it. otherwise i wouldn't have it

With the amount of Giants and the frequency of Ragnaros... due to card economy I don't think you can afford to think that way. Unless you've got great speed in your deck you need to assume that there are two to three bruisers per match. It's best if you can deal with those threats without having to waist an attack that could be directed at your opponent.

I'll give you that naturalize sucks for hard removal. I don't know jack about rogues I've never been interested in trying them in HS or WoW, though I do have a rather sadistic pleasure in killing them. That aside I've had Sunwalkers, Stormwind Champions and Legendaries killed on a rather consistent basis.

you can't polymorph a concealed auctioneer, and you can't polymorph an iceblock. that's 80% of the ladder right there. So no, you do not need poly in this meta. Also, since the majority of the decks on ladder are basically OTK decks that want to do 20+ damage to you out of hand in one turn, you gotta go fast and kill them before they draw leeroy, FoN+roar etc.

With an aggro mage you definitely don't need polymorph. Tempo is too valuable. And once the opponent's big taunts are up, as an aggro mage you should have cards in hand to do lethal face damage or you've lost anyway, so polymorph wouldn't help.

2 sheep are a waste. I don't even use one. With the prevalence of agro rush decks, it's not worth 4 mana to sheep something worth 1 or 2 mana.
