Episode 244 Highlander Hunter

New month, new deck. Highlander Hunter is a very popular deck that is at the top of the meta and leverages powerful cards that require a Reno-style deck to work. It contains several secrets which make it tricky to play against and when things go south you can always find Zephrys or Zul’Jin answers.

Episode 238 Murloc Paladin

We try a deck that has been dominating the meta leaderboards and FRID has found some success with. This deck has consistent board refill and endgame potential for explosive lethals by taking advantage of Zephrys.

Episode 237 Singleton Zoo

Episode 231 Token Druid

Video about mirror universe experiment

We go back to a deck we tried back in the early days of the Rise of Shadows release with token druid. With the addition of SN1P-SN4P, it seems like decks are going a the mech direction and this deck is no exception.

Episode 230 Aggro Shaman

While technically still June, we try a new deck I ran across that got someone Rank 6 legend. Aggro Shaman leverages the murlocs, but features the old doomhammer/rockbiter combo for some explosive finishes. This is a deck suited to Dan’s style and pace.

Episode 227 Zoo Warlock

We go back to basics and try a classic deck that never goes away. It’s zoo one more time. I’ve had some success with it, and in the spirit of keeping decks to a minimum, we go with what works.

Episode 226 Murloc Shaman

Here’s the link to help find rocks on the asteroid Bennu

New month and new deck to try for legend. Murloc Shaman is a pretty straightforward deck that plays very similarly to token druid and has some strong synergies and a lot more longevity than the druid deck thanks to cards like the 2 Hagathas and Shudderwock.
