Episodes

Episode 54 - Mechs on the Rise

6/3/2019
Okay, so nerfs happened, but buffs? Wtf does this mean for the Hearthstone metagame? We go through each card and try to speak to its potential - some are pretty unexciting, but others are *extremely* exciting.

Duration:01:29:13

Episode 53 - The Strongest Deck in the Meta

5/13/2019
One deck stands head-and-shoulders above the others in win rate and play rate at higher ranks: tempo rogue. Why is this deck so much stronger than the other aggressive options, and how do you beat it? It has one bad matchup, but what makes that matchup bad? Also, what will be banned and how? We're pretty confident about our guess!

Duration:01:26:20

Episode 52 - Early Rise of Shadows Metagame

4/25/2019
What could possibly be good in a world without odd paladin? We're here to tell you what we think are the strongest contenders of the breakout decks in Rise of Shadows.

Duration:01:43:17

Episode 51 - Rise of Shadows Set Review Lite

4/9/2019
We dive into our favorite cards in rise of the shadows, most of which probably suck. Tune in to see how wrong we are! Who knows, though - maybe we're right!

Duration:02:12:02

Episode 50 - In Standard Nevermore

4/1/2019
With the eclipse of the year of the raven, we're losing a lot of really iconic and powerful stuff. What are the best cards we're losing, and which decks are toast? Tune in to find out!

Duration:01:18:58

Episode 49 - A Classic Problem

3/20/2019
The classic set is a bit of an elephant in the room. Through nerfs and the hall of fame, the developers have acknowledged that pieces of basic/classic are harmful for a healthy game ecosystem. However, having an evergreen set comes with some clear advantages. What are the pros and cons, and what are our alternatives?

Duration:01:36:03

Episode 48 - The Tragic Tale of Genn & Baku

3/5/2019
In the Year of the Dragon, we'll lose some classic cards that have been staples in the metagame for years. We'll also see two Witchwood legendaries take their build-around cards and scamper into the forest a year early. Even though Genn and Baku are leaving us, we'll feel their effects in all formats for the rest of the Hearthstone. Tune in to hear us go deep on how these cards affect the players and the developers.

Duration:01:30:29

Episode 47 - Bye, Malfurion!

1/7/2019
Remember the best class in Hearthstone? Well, Blizzard put on their carry pants and crushed it. Seriously, though, these are some huge nerfs that effectively invalidated the last year of cards they've printed, and will continue to have rippling effects on Druid's class identity for a long time. Some other stuff changed, too, I guess.

Duration:01:12:51

Episode 46 - Early Rastakhan Metagame

12/16/2018
Greetings, traveler! What has the Hearthstone ladder been like since the new set dropped, and what zany decks has Evan tried out? Tune in to find out!

Duration:01:30:04

Episode 45 - Rastakhan's Rumble Set Review Lite

12/2/2018
Another lite set review! We pick out and discuss our favorite cards from each class and highlight the decks in which they may be best. The power level of these cards seems fairly high to us, and we both look forward to playing with them!

Duration:02:42:24

Episode 44 - Goodbye Boomsday!

11/11/2018
In the twilight of the expansion, we reflect on Boomsday. What were the class-defining decks? Which cards really kicked butt, and which were anticipated to rock but fell flat?

Duration:01:26:57

Episode 43 - Balance Changes and Snowball Cards

10/21/2018
With new balance adjustments behind us, we eagerly await a fresh metagame. Before we go into that, though, it's worth appreciating what changed and why - specifically, the Mana Wyrm nerf. What made that card so good, and which cards are similar?

Duration:01:02:59

Episode 42 - The Most Impactful Cards in Standard

9/12/2018
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?

Duration:01:31:48

Episode 41 - Early Boomsday Metagame

8/18/2018
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!

Duration:01:30:48

Episode 40 - Boomsday Set Review Lite!

8/10/2018
The fortieth episode of Last Turn is a lite set review of Boomsday! We're excited to talk about the most explosive cards amidst the iron-cast collection of cards that Blizzard gave us. We're both really excited!

Duration:02:21:14

Episode 39 - Goodbye Witchwood, Hello Boomsday!

7/28/2018
We're back! We share a ton of laughs as we outro The Witchwood, and review how the metagame evolved from its release until now. We also review some of what we've seen from the new expansion, The Boomsday Project!

Duration:01:28:35

Episode 38 - The New Face of Hunter

6/24/2018
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
The new balance changes effectively wiped out the most powerful strategies from the Kobold's metagame. What's survived the rotation, and what kind of new strategies do we see? Is Thrall back at it again? Tune in to find out!

Duration:01:06:47

Episode 36 - Witchwood Mechanics in Review

5/23/2018
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
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!
