Day[9] HearthStone Decktacular #238 - Wotog Mill Rogue? by Day9

As you know, I am a purveyor of the Queen of Manners. Given the loss of deathlord, milling has taken quite a hit. However, I'm certain that with enough FORCE OF WILL we can make a mill rogue work!

Day[9] HearthStone Decktacular #235 - Combo Renolock by Day9

I've played a depressingly small amount of Warlock lately. To change that, I'm running a combo renolock that alleges a 74% winrate. Although I highly doubt the author did a thorough statistical analysis, I just read headlines and believe what's ...

Day[9] HearthStone Decktacular #234 - Sjow's C'thun Control Warrior by Day9

Sjow is awesome! He makes great control decks and is a god with control warrior. So, I'm going to desecrate his C'thun Control Warrior by attempting it myself, to possible horrific results!

Day[9] HearthStone Decktacular #232 - N'Zoth Control Priest by Day9

Day[9] HearthStone Decktacular #228 - Evolution Shaman by Day9

I thought it might be mighty fun to build a Shaman deck that used multiple copes of "Evolve" and "Master of Evolution!" There's the obvious Onyxia + evolve combo, but what other funzy stuff can we make now that the ...

Day[9]'s HearthStone Decktacular #227 - Midrange N'Zoth Rogue by Day9

This is an interesting decklist that looks halfway between control and miracle, but drops the usual conceal/coldblood/deadly poison in favor of deathrattle cards. I want to ladder back up before the season ends!

Day[9]'s Day Off - Overwatch Release! by Day9

Overwatch is now live! So, I'm gonna reinhardt it! And mei it! And soldier it! And Bastion it! Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7

Day[9] HearthStone Decktacular #223 - Tempo Warrior by Day9

Ever since I've been seeing Arathi Weaponsmiths creep up on the ladder, I've been eager to try it out. I traditionally don't like how control warrior plays (purely personal preference), so this more battley, board building Warrior has me intruiged. ...

Day[9] HearthStone Decktacular #222 - N'Zoth Reno Rogue by Day9

It's time to put every card I've ever loved into one Rogue deck. Shadowstepping N'Zoth sounds amazing. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3

Day[9] HearthStone Decktacular #221 - N'Zoth Paladin by Day9
