So there I was.  Things were looking dire indeed.  That butler of Medivh's had opened the wrong portal, and his blunder had cost me over half of my life.  But I have this under control, for I am Rexxar and I AM A HUNTER!!!

Now, with Medivh rescued and the party as well, I stare down the puny prince of princes... Melchazar.  As impossible as it sounds, my enemy has me on my heels.  This is an emergency.  Time to break Yogg.  1st spell... nothing.  2nd spell... nothing.  5th spell Lock 'n Load... useful, but not enough.  10th spell... destroys my allies.  I think to myself, "I swear to you, you stupid old god, that if you don't do something right, I WILL end you myself!!!"  

14th spell... running out of time.  Then, it happens.  Melchazar (with 17 health remaining) gets hit straight in his smug little face with a Sacrificial Pact.  Victory!

Greetings my ruffled feathered friends,

My question is do you ever think we will get a specific search mechanic? I know discover gives you a choice of 3, but I came from playing yu-gi-oh where there are minions that if destroyed by battle they would allow you to search through your deck for a minion that fit a certain criteria. For example has to be of a certain tribe/type and only have a certain attack power or lower. I think this would really help combo decks in a meta that favors the aggro archetype.

P.S. I always listen until the end. Jobs Done!

Dear Angry Chicken,

Last week you guys mentioned that you hope no more inspire cards are ever printed, and it made me kind of sad. Inspire never worked out much, and inspire decks are pretty weak in general, but I still think there's something cool about the idea. Playing around with nexus champion can be crazy good fun, and I'm always excited when I get it or Kodo rider from a random card effect. I was hoping with standard coming in that an inspire deck might become viable but it never happened. Why do you think it never worked out, and do you think it could ever work if they refined it I future expansions and made some faster cards?

Well met foul-tempered fowl!

I have been playing Hearthstone since beta and what drew me to it at first was the laid back, easy to pick up vibe of the game.  However, what kept me interested were the various characters and creatures that had huge amounts of lore behind them.  (Malfurion, Ragnaros & Thrall etc). I always wanted to learn more about Hearthstone's backstory and I knew just how to do it.

Enter; Legion! I picked up the game for the first time last week when it released and have been gorging on the epic lore and questing content ever since.  Even though I am a WoW noob, I love interacting with characters like Malfurion and Prophet Velen, especially when they say the exact lines they do in Hearthstone! Hearing Malfurion say "Nature must be preserved" puts a big ol' smile on my face every time! Not to mention seeing a certain gentlemanly murloc now an then!

Anyway, just wanted to know if you guys think it's common for people to really get into WoW after playing Hearthstone?

Love the show and keep up the good work, you guys are awesome!
