9/12/2018
More
The last year of Hearthstone has given us a lot of really fascinating mechanics, and some incredibly powerful cards. But which cards have had the hugest impact on Standard? Are they part of the newer expansions, or are they old flames that we just can't put out?

8/18/2018
More
Boomsday brought with it mechs, but old powerhouses that have risen from the scrap heap are the most potent foes on the ladder! What is each class doing, and are there any truly *new* archetypes amongst them? Tune in and find out!

Episode 38 - The New Face of Hunter

6/24/2018
More
Greetings, travelers! This week, we discuss how the Hunter class identity has evolved in the past few expansions. What was once a one-dimensional aggressive class (with lackluster performance for a long time) is now defined by combo-midrange and minionless tempo decks. Tune in and hear our takes on it!

Duration:01:01:16

Episode 37 - The Witchwood Post-Nerf Metagame

6/1/2018
More

Episode 36 - Witchwood Mechanics in Review

5/23/2018
More
The latest Hearthstone expansion introduced a bunch of new mechanics, but their impact has been relatively small. We speculate on why the cards showcasing the Witchwood mechanics - Rush, Echo, and even/odd - look the way that they do, and why haven't been so impactful. If you're interested in reflecting on game design, you'll like this episode!

Duration:01:16:26

Episode 35 - Why Do Balance Changes Happen?

5/15/2018
More
We have a general discussion about the goals of balance changes, and then top off our discussion with which cards we think will be adjusted! Sadly we were a bit late on the upload, so this episode contains a lot of speculation about which cards will be adjusted even though we know that now!

Episode 34 - Too Much Overload!

5/3/2018
More
Once a dominant and oppressive class, shaman has been only weakly present or entirely absent from the Hearthstone metagame for quite some time. Even before its glory days, it saw fringe play. What keeps Thrall from seeing regular time in the spotlight like some of the other heroes?

Episode 31 - Designing Interaction

3/29/2018

While we wait for the arrival of The Witchwood, we discussed a fundamental part of Hearthstone: interaction. Some cards aren't meant to advance your own game, but are instead meant to thwart the opponent's!

2/16/2018
More

Episode 26 - Mastering Tempo

1/18/2018
More
In the words of the great LSV: what is tempo? This resource is crucial in Hearthstone, but it is not always obvious how to measure it or what it means to have it. We define the concept, and discuss how games proceed differently depending on who has the tempo advantage. Finally, we talk about how non-minion (like razakus) decks can capitalize on a tempo advantage.
