Game feels fairly stale to me, don't really like most of the decks right now.
Right before rotation I hit legend with mind blast control priest, which has to be one of my favourite decks in the game, ever. Shame it's gone now together with shadow visions. Nomi priest right now is kind of cool, but pretty meme?
If anyone wants to play some time, my tag is Zaphkael#2599, I play mostly on EU, sometimes on NA.
But I know, at the end...

the warrior deck is definitely very unfun to play against, and honestly doesn't seem that fun to play

Bomb Warrior is okay to play, but is really only unfair against Rogue. Control Warrior has been a miserable experience on both sides. Control Warrior games, you either get blown up in 5 minutes, or you win but it takes half an hour.
One time, back in 'nam, Sudo was set upon by an entire squadron of charlies. He challenged them all to a game of Pictionary, which he won resoundingly. The charlies were forced to not only surrender the skirmish, but also their world-famous chili recipe, which Sudo sold to Texas for a hefty profit. Sudo is a master of diplomacy.

Bomb Hunter gets eaten by Druid, Hunter, and Mage, though. Anything that can pump out a big board quickly, really.

Not all the hunter decks. It beats most of them actually.

So we're getting nerfs!

EVIL Miscreant goes to 4 health from 5
Raiding Party goes to 4 mana
Preparation only gives 2 mana discount
Archivist Elysiana goes to 9 mana

So it seems it's mostly about reducing Rogue power in the current meta, as well as killing the combo with Elysiana and Baleful Banker/Youthful Brewmaster.

Then in June we're getting buffs:
Gloop Sprayer to 7 mana
Munchmulcher to 9 mana
Necromechanic to 4 mana
Flark's Boom-Zooka to 7 mana
Unexpected Results to 3 mana
Luna's Pocket Galaxy to 5 mana
Crystology to 1 mana
Glowstone Technician to 5 mana
Extra Arms to 2 mana
Cloning Device to 1 mana
Pogo-Hopper to 1 mana
Violet Haze to 2 mana
The Storm Bringer to 6 mana
Thunderhead becomes a 3/6
Spirit Bomb to 1 mana
Dr. Morrigan to 6 mana
Security Rover becomes a 2/6
Berylium Nullifer becomes a 4/8

So it looks like they're also trying to diversify the meta by pushing alternate archetypes?

Well the other way of looking at it is that it's least dangerous to buff archetype specific cards.
"Let us say that you are right and there are two worlds. How much, then, is this 'other world' worth to you? What do you have there that you do not have here? Money? Power? Something worth causing the prince so much pain for?'"
"Well, I..."
"What? Nothing? You would make the prince suffer over... nothing?"

Possible, but I think this is first time since the beta that Team 5 has buffed cards instead of nerfing others, so I assume that they're doing this to diversify the meta without having to drop more hammers.

If the moratorium on buffing cards is lifted I wish they'd revert some of the stupid mistaken nerfs of the past. #IHopeYouLikeMyInvention

I also find it telling that almost all of the cards getting buffed are cards that pushed Blizzard-approved archetypes that didn't pan out in actual play- Mulchmuncher for Treat Druid, for example. I wonder if that signals more buffs in the future if the design team plans out deck archetypes that don't wind up working.

What's a simple mage ladder deck I could play?
Assume I have infinite dust.
Cause I'm soft infinite on arena and have infinite dust.

I think both conjurer mage and cyclone mage are fairly simple

Conjurer's mage is still going strong, but recently miracle mage has started to outperform it and is slowly becoming one of the better decks in the game.
https://www.vicioussyndicate.com/vs-dat ... eport-130/
This is the latest data reaper report, it's still from before the nerfs but it's still fairly accurate, a trend that's probably coming is a decline in rogue and eith it, likely warrior. That might indicate a rise in murloc shaman/token druid, which i believe are favourable matchups.
So yeah, that link has some good discussion about the meta and what's currently considered to be the optimal decklists. Do keep in mind that nerfs just hit and that things might shift.

I feel obligated to play miracle mage.

I won 100$ playing Miracle mage shortly after beta.

With 5 mana Gadgetzan Auctioneer, fun times. (it was really freeze mage with a different wincon but slightly worse but it helped me talk myself into playing a freeze mage to round out my other 2 decks)

Edit: Miracle Mage has been pretty fun so far. I hate that unless I play a lot all in one month I'm basically goldfishing though. Because rank 10-20 meta is so soft.

Goddamn it! Still closed beta? I haven't got access yet.

Edit: are they floating out there being gifted or is it from the source only? Still waiting
