Getting Better

I think we should mention the FB post about Zombie Chow. Our listeners may find it useful.
“Why is Zombie Chow such a commonly used card if it heals the opposing hero for 5 health? Especially if the card itself only has 3 health and does little damage.” (HappyFhantum)

Chris –
I’m a new listener and I love the podcast! Thank you!

For the first time I have stacked 1600 dust and need a legendary. I know Ragnaros the Firelord and Dr. Boom are the obvious picks that will bring my rank up in any and all decks I play but I’m in love with a few other cards. I mainly play Rogue even tho it is weak without staple legendary cards, I like the mind boggling combos that can come from the class. So my other choices for “fun factor” over upping my rank is … Trade Prince Gallywix. I think its more important to steal spells and have fun than to drop Dr. Boomfor a no brainer win till you get outclass by stacks of legendary cards… I would love to hear your guys thoughts about the potentially very fun “Trade Prince” vs pure power cards like Dr.Boom and Ragnaros.

Hey guys love the show I enjoy lose listening to it on my way to and from work. You guys give solid advice for the casual player. Using your tips about arena I have improved my wins. Let Arrianwynn know I made my best run of five with the priest in arena The hero I almost never use. I am new to hearthstone I was wondering what card packs you get from the arena? Is it GvG, classic or a mix of both? Thanks for your time keep up the great work.

Nightfall –
