Spell Casting Mage Still Rocking It


Yesterday, when I posted about my mage deck, I was rank 15 and climbing. I have decided to make two changes.  I added a Vex Crow and a Magic Dart Frog.

 

I figured that since I cast many spells both cards seem logical and I had seen a few of the legend players have success with them, so I thought why not.

I had a tough time deciding which two cards to remove, but I decided on Bannan Buffoon and Sandbinder.

 

I have only played 5 games with the new cards, but so far I have won 4 out of the 5 games.

On another positive note, I hit rank 12 today which is three higher than yesterday, and I now have some stats since I hit 20 games with this deck.

The numbers are fascinating. I find it interesting that if I mulligan and get Mana Cyclone or Conjurer’s Calling or Zilliax in my starting hand I have a 100% win rate.

Hearthstone Update


SinceI last posted about my current Hearthstone endeavors, I had to change my strategy. I was running what is referred to as a Kahdgar mage deck. One day, all of a sudden I found it hard to win games. I had lost ten out of twelve games and no matter what changes I made, I could not right the ship. I decided it was time to switch mage decks, I had been looking at a mage deck type called miracle mage and just so happen several of my losses came against that architecture. I have gone through 3 iterations of the deck, and at the time of this post my deck is as follow(as always clicking on the image will direct you to hearthpwn.com):

Once I switched decks my luck turned around, for the first ten I wnt seven and three. Before that win streak, I had dropped down to rank 20, down from 17. Currently, I am rank 15 and 1 win away from rank 14. My record with the current deck is 19 – 8. and overall for the month I am 45 – 37. Below are images of the summary and charts for the current deck.

Hearthstone


Recently, I have started playing Hearthstone again. A new expansion came out along with new cards and mechanics, and I was impressed with some of the Mage cards. I decided to try some new decks with these cards, and it was fun. Last week the HCT (Hearthstone Championship Tour) was held in Taiwan, and  Hunterace(game name) spectacularly won the tournament. I mention this because he had a very impressive mage deck. Below is an image of the deck and if you click on the deck, you will be taken to the Hearthpwn Web site where it is listed.

The deck looked very fun, and so I decided to use it for ladder climbing. I have modified the deck to my liking several times and what is funny is that my deck now only have a one card difference. Below is my decklist.

The only difference is that I have added Messenger Raven and removed Hench Clan Sneak. I had tried other cards such as a second Astromancer. I decided against it because in most cases by the time  I had a chance to use a second card, the summoned minion was usually weak and not worth the effort. Another card I tried was the Arcane Keysmith.  The Keysmith is a sound card and at times can come in handy, I just felt that it was not as good as having a second Book of Specters. The last card was the Daring Fire Eater. The Fire Eater card was just not sufficient enough for what I wanted to do.

I have played many games with the deck and have done a little better than average. I decided to keep using the deck for the whole month and make adjustments where I feel it is necessary.

The image below is a breakdown of my matches.

The next image is a chart of my matches. Note my win percentage when I go first.

Hopefully, I will keep the site up to date as I progress but no promises.

I.T. Technician or Electrician


Which one can best help you with the electricity at your home or place of business? In my close area, some people think that the I.T. technicians and the electricians are one and the same. I guess if it plugs into the wall or draws power, it must be an I.T. issue.

Futurama Season 3 Episode 5


I am ranking Futurama episodes again and I have made a few changes to my ranking page.

From here on out I will have an Overall Rankings page which can be found in the search menu and underneath that page, there will be links for each season.

Since my last entry, the podcasters I like to listen to have moved their hosting service to another site which means the links on my other blog post will not display properly but the links going forward will be correct.

Episode Watched:

305 The Birdbot of Ice-Catraz

Domain Transfer


Yesterday, I made a change that I had been debating about for over a year. I transferred andysocial69.com to my word press site. The previous site was andysocial69.wordpress.com I believe. I was going to transfer andydavis.net but decided against it in case I wanted to use the domain for a personal project in the future.

So far, everything is looking good and I could not be happier.

Let’s Try This Again


In the past, I have gone several months without posting and then a new post would pop up. This post is no different.

I had been ranking Futurama episodes and out of the blue, I stopped. I hope to get back to ranking those episodes on this site but I want to also post when I go live on twitch and when I release new podcast episodes for a Netflix show called Disenchanted. You can find the podcast on either Google Play or Apple Podcast by searching for “Enchanted by Disenchantment“.

Concerning Twitch I would like to have at least one live show a week and the day will be Wednesday at 8:00 PM central time. I am a big fan of the podcast World of Warcast and recently I have joined their discord channel and been doing dungeons once a week with them (Wednesday at 8 Central in case you could not guess). My alliance toon in WOW was even mentioned in the podcast.

For the podcast I am working on it is an experiment, I recorded two episodes and I let it drop due to holiday and other events but plan to start back in a couple of weeks. I am very amateur  with podcast but I still want to try and make a go of it so any hints or suggestions (as long as it is constructive) are welcomed.

In summary, I hope to be more productive on my site and have more content.
