    Oo, nice looking biscuits. That said, my wife makes the best biscuits on the East Coast of the US, and it's just flour, salt, sugar, baking soda, milk and lard. You can have them with chicken and...

    I'm always happy when good ideas spread. It's not like you're surprised when Blizzard does it, after all.

    Sounds good. I've been looking forward to it. My Demon Hunter build got some buffs. More Rain of Vengeance damage and double effect on Brooding? Lovely.

    I can see why it bothers you. My base assumption is that there are more good Android titles out there than I will ever have time to play, and the only issue is discovering which ones will give me the...

    I was thinking rare as a proportion of total titles available, which ties into the discovery problem.

    I got to play some Titanfall, since they were doing a 48-hour free trial. I come at it from the perspective of basically not having played a modern shooter since Half-Life 2 except for a little...

    I do have a Peacekeeper. Great card. We'll see. As I've mentioned before, I'm bad at judging decks. My main problems are that the deck leans to the right side of the curve, so is seriously vulnerable...

    I currently have what I consider to be a terrible deck in Arena with Paladin. No Truesilver. No Consecrate. No Equality. No Humility. I think the only spells I have are two Get Down's and two...

    It would hardly break Avenge, either.

    So I'm playing an Arena Shaman against a Hunter. Close match. Turn 8 and they coin out a King Krush, Neat! I've never seen one. Nice summons. Takes me down...

    A few years ago I found an old Centipede machine with a trackball controller. That was a joy to play. I was taken aback how good the control scheme was.

    The example in the first paragraph makes sense to me. Cards with similar effects (secrets, deathrattles) trigger in the order they are played. In this case, Redemption triggers first, bringing a...

    I saw a post on Reddit about using the Ooze with Sword of Justice. The first Ooze gets buffed, shares the buff with the second one, which then itself gets another buff. One Ooze played for an extra...

    I think Echoing Ooze should find a good home. Card-based buffs aren't that common because one card is often easy to get rid of, so it doesn't make sense to put multiple cards into one minion. If you...

    Ah, right. I haven't seen any of the new Warlock decks yet, but they sound right scary. I'll have to see if I can put something together.

    They must have come away from that one severely shaken. 8/8 by turn 3 (what on earth did that Void Terror eat?), Thaddius out by turn 6, Sylvanus/Rivendare double Legendary steal and still lost. Well...

    The final cinematic in Frozen Throne was magnificent. I didn't realise I cared as much as I did about Arthas' story until that moment, which sold it on cool (no pun intended) alone.

    Control decks in constructed are often about countering whatever your opponent does until you draw into a finishing combo. It's one way to construct a deck- it reaches its pinnacle in Miracle Rogue,...

    I have a control type deck made that goes to fatigue more than any other deck I've played. That mostly reflects the lack of good finishers in my collection, but also the brick wall a Priest can put...

    While I think that's a pretty strong drawback, there are two things I would counter with. Firstly, you're playing up to a 3 mana card for free. Whatever sets it off you've pretty much gotten value...

    The neat thing about Mad Scientist is that the secret is random. It makes it that much harder for your opponent to guess.
