For our 30th entry into the Hall of Legends, we have Numb. Thank you so much for your support and congratulations on your achievement. Below is the story he sent us. 

I've been a listener to the show for over a year now, been playing since Nov '14 and this season I finally made legend (albeit in Wild).

I've found the show invaluable in making me think about plays before just shoving out cards that feel right.   Frid's analysis of what opponents might be holding has really changed the way I approach the game.

Anyway, my grind to legend wasn't all that harrowing, floundered around under rank 15 for a few days at the start of the season, then went on a tear with a flood Paladin deck up to rank 3, I think I rode a winstreak almost all the way between 10 and 5.    I bounced between rank 2 and 1 for a week or so, failing at the final boss once and dropping back to 2 then started playing Razakus Priest back to the final boss, which anticlimactically was a concede at turn 2 to earn my my first Legend finish.

It feels a bit like hitting 60 in vanilla WoW, what the hell do I do now?

Thanks for making such a great show, keep up the great work!
