Very satisfying

Just earned my first grand master arena key and I have to say it felt amazing.

Good job! I've not made it past 6 yet.
I'm a pretty big deal around here.

Feel privileged.

I suggest going for priest. I got lucky and drafted a strong early game deck with 2 holy nova and 4 mind control. Mind control is very OP, just watch out for is spell bender and counter spell from mage.

After that run I drafted another priest with 0 mind control and 0 nova, go figure.

Are you actually questioning the randomness of their Draft Mode? :P It's pretty much RNG-City, but that's just my Opinion. It's the Reason I stopped playing this Game, but to each his own. :)
Anyway, gz and Stuff.

So i decided to give it a go using your mentality and drafted 5 mind controls and a Ysera... maintenance happened mid way through the arena but it's looking promising :p

I have tried every class several times and it feels like priest has the least amount of luck involved with their draft. My choice in draft is priest>mage/druid>shaman>ragequit. Everything else seems to suck, or maybe I am drafting them wrong.

Ysera is a good pick, very nice to have that card. 5 mind control seems a bit top heavy, but as long as you have the strong early game and (hopefully) 2 nova you should do very well. The most important thing is making it to late game, once you can steal cards and heal 2 every turn you just auto win.

On a side note, maintenance sucks. I think they still give BOTH players a LOSS, which just seems silly.

Finally grabbed that elusive 12 win key(Lightforge Key). It took around2 months of casual play. The new meta made my previous priest draft bad, so I turned to mage and druid. Took a while to find a drafting strategy that could deliver the wins, but mage eventually pulled through. Did not grab a capture of my decklist, but I only had 1 epic and no legends. My 2 loss actually came from not having any silence or poly, go figure (puffy you paladin).

Also, that rank reset is pretty lame. I did not even notice that my rank 10 was gone until I checked out my profile. What a waste of time to go for rank1 or even the golden ranks above that. There do not seem to be any rewards attached to it now either.




Now that hearthstone has been beaten (again), I might come back to IW. :) 
Pretty far behind on changes to IW though, might wait until new set is out or something. I have not even tried rift runs yet, so I am pretty excited for that when I get some time for it.

The Rift Runs are a refreshing change to Infinity Wars and can help keep renewed interest when coming back to play  ;)
