note: I write this last week, but forgot to post it.

Tinkertown gnomes are testing their prototype card-bot: Optimotron. The card you draw on turn 1 will be a 1-cost card, if you have one. On turn 2, a 2-cost card…

I have no imagination, so I went full C’thun. On my Pay-to-Win account: Zombie Chow for the 1 drop, C’thun dudes all the way up to 7, Alexstraza at 9. The only place on the curve that was out of my control was 8, where I filled out the deck so I’d have 30 cards.

I went 3-0 with C’thun Hunter to finish a quest, then 3-1 with C’thun druid to finish another quest. The game I lost? C’thun Shaman. And in all 6 wins, I never had to play C’thun at all.

So I switched over to my Free-to-Play account. That one doesn’t have all the sexy C’thun cards (like Twin Emperors). So I did what I could, tossed in Reno for 6, Kel’Thuzad at 8, Rafam at 9. Went 2-1… in both my wins, I managed to get Stalag and Feugen AND Kel’Thuzad. It was bananas.

We’ve seen this brawl before, but not since Wrath of the Old Gods came out. So it’s totally different. Betcha we see it again after the next expansion too… and since it’s “wild” rules in terms of which cards you can use, I expect it to get just better and better … until it’s broken.
