Beat the first wing on normal (no way I can touch heroic just yet. Hero power that spawns 4/4s? No thanks).

I really enjoy the class challenges.

You just need to make a rush deck. Then it becomes super easy against her.

I used my mage deck to beat the entire first wing. Though my mage deck is my main one since it's most similar to my MtG playstyle.

if you haven't been following BlizzCon, tons of exciting stuff going on with Hearthstone. a new expansion is coming next month, coinciding with the launch for Android tablets. I'm really excited on both counts. Might be getting a tablet for myself just for that.

I also decided to try grinding up to Legend with zoo this month since I have a little more free time than usual. At rank 6 at the moment. If you've never done this before, you have to win 25 games more than you lose once you hit rank 5 to become Legend, which sounds easy until you do the math -- that's ~250 games if you have a winrate of 55%.

I use sort of an odd Paladin deck called "Pawns and Kings", with some personal twists.

Basically, it's a deck built around getting lots of cheap minions out in the early game, buffing them to draw removals, and then following up with cards that benefit from lots of cards on the field like Sea Giant. I include lots of removal cards like TBK, big game hunter, and aldor/stampeding kodo, equality/consecration etc. Lots of heals as well.

I absolutely wreck druids and other decks that rely on lots of taunt and/or rush decks. But I pretty much always lose to mages, hunters, and shammies.

gotcha. I haven't played Paladin much, sounds like an interesting midrange deck. Zoo is about as uncreative as you can get, although I've been tweaking a couple slots here and there.

got up to rank 5, one star this morning. 25 wins to go.
