Which deck should I buy?
The most common questions that come up about a new deckbuilding strategy are, “Is this good enough to play in a competitive environment?”, and “Will I be able to build it for a long time?”.
These questions are great because they allow us to learn about a deck’s strengths and weaknesses, and then evaluate whether it fits our current deckbuilding and strategy.
But they’re not the end-all be-all of deckbuilding.
It’s also important to understand that we don’t have to play the game all that much to understand how to build decks.
As long as we understand the game well enough to learn how to play it, we can understand how the deck works and build a deck.
So how do we learn?
For most beginners, it’s best to build a list of cards that we’ve already seen used by others in the community.
It can be something like a basic list of the most popular cards, or something more complex like a “budget” list of popular cards.
For most experienced players, though, the best way to learn is to play.
While playing Hearthstone is an integral part of building decks, it isn’t always as straightforward as building a deck to play against.
There are a few key elements to building a good deck that you should keep in mind when designing your deck.
First, make sure that you have a good idea of how your opponent’s deck works.
Do you think the enemy deck is very similar to yours?
Do you see a lot of common-sense plays?
If you’re in a position to decide whether to play an aggressive deck or a control deck, try to build your deck accordingly.
This way you can always figure out what the deck is capable of doing, and what the matchup is like, so you can decide whether you want to go aggressive or control.
Second, you’ll want to understand what the opponent is likely to do against you.
Does the deck have ways to deal with the big threats?
If the answer is yes, you’re likely to win with a deck that has a good early game.
If the deck has ways to slow down the enemy, that could help you to take advantage of their weak early game cards, and you can then use that advantage to finish them off.
Finally, if you’re a control player, you should be able and willing to sacrifice cards that help you out against your opponent.
In other words, you need to be able play aggressively, but you also need to want to do so because you want the other side to do the same.
If you can do this, then you can usually win in the long run.
If, on the other hand, you can’t, then there are some ways to work around that by playing around the other decks in your opponents’ decks.
For example, if the opponent has a lot in their early-game decks, they can make use of their removal to deal damage to you, so they might play cards like Gadgetzan Auctioneer to slow you down.
If your opponent has very few early-midgame cards, you might choose to play a less aggressive deck, such as a Control Priest deck that can take advantage to pressure your opponent before they have time to respond.
Finally in order to properly evaluate your deck, you will want to analyze your opponent carefully.
In Hearthstone, the game is usually decided by a lot simpler card games, like Control Priest and Aggro Shaman, which are often played against each other in smaller tournaments.
In this way, you have to focus on your opponent and understand their strategy.
In the long-term, you want your opponent to be at a disadvantage against you because you can play a deck with more powerful early game and a lower-cost card advantage.
When you know your opponent well enough, you may also want to consider your deck and how it performs against the deck of the opponent.
When I first played Hearthstone, I wasn’t a fan of aggro decks.
But since I’ve gotten better with the deck, I’ve started to realize that I can win with aggro decks if they don’t do too much to stop me from winning.
What do you do if your opponent plays a control-oriented deck?
For the most part, the answer to this question is “don’t play them”.
Control decks, in particular, tend to be good against aggressive decks, because they can’t be killed by your own early game damage, and they’re more resilient to board wipes and damage spells like Flamewreathed Faceless.
Control decks also tend to have a high ceiling, so the more aggressive you are, the less likely you are to be forced to deal the lethal damage to your opponent when they’re out of card advantage, and the less of an advantage you’ll have if you do deal lethal damage.
In general, it doesn’t matter what your opponent does against you; the only thing that matters is how you play around them.
Control players are often extremely well-prepared for the metagame, so playing around them
