Espo Mode

Valeera’s Bag of Tricks

How it Works

  • Hit Brawl to start playing! Your deck is randomized with only spells (from all classes) and you’ll be playing as Valeera.
  • Casting spells will also summon a random minion onto the field of the same cost. #Value
  • Battlecries won’t go off in this brawl due to the summoned nature of minions.

Hi guys!

I emailed you about daughters on your podcast being neat for me since I know have a daughter awhile back. My daughter is now 9 months, so it will be awhile for her to play, lol.

So I have been trying to get ahead on gold each expansion over the last few years and did similar to what you talked about on latest episode.

My name is also Benjamin, so apparently we are savers, lol.

Here is what I have at the moment after started to save first couple of weeks of witchwood:

7,500 gold

18,000 dust

I also want to share with ESPO that I crafted my first golden and it was a legendary during first few days of witch wood: Shudderwock!

I too will dust any goldens that I have 2 of standard ones, but since I usually have a lot of dust I play with the golden until I want to craft.. They are my extra stash of dust.

Anyway, I think you should craft the golden legendary… I am thinking I may also… 18 random fully golden decks? If that’s not fun guaranteed, what is?



Congrats on a great show!  I’ve been listening for a while (since Old Gods) and really enjoy your focus on the “just for fun” side of Hearthstone.  It took me a while to figure out what kind of Hearthstone player I was. I am very competitive. I read up on the meta, study the best decks, and have a pretty decent win rate, but I don’t spend enough time in the game to hang in the “rank 4 – Legend club”.  So, I guess that makes me a casual player? I love the solo content, the tavern brawl A.K.A “Espo Mode”, and just discovering cool interactions and combos that I can share with friends. Your fun and casual personalities really fit this niche well. Keep up the good work!

I do have a suggestion, however.  I think it would be great if you took 5-10 min at the end of each episode to do a Top 5 list.  (What are your top 5 classic legendaries, top 5 witchwood art, top 5 battlecries, top 5 dungeon run encounters, etc….)  You could tease which top 5 you will be doing next week and let the community chime in. You could each count down your top 5 and then maybe share the communities top 5.

This would give us more of your personality (fun and casual !!), give us something to anticipate for the next show, and give the community another thing to discuss during the week.

All Done!
