Tier 5: A Hearthstone Podcast - Episode 12 Pirate Mage

August 22, 2017

This week, Rod is loopy from a) lack of sleep b) being sick c) beer d) that's just rod's general state of being or e) all above the above (HINT, the answer is not a, b, c or d).  The guys discuss how the ladder has been and the recent influx of aggro deck to the meta.  The affect of Viscious Syndicate and their reports on the ladder.  Rod has Freudian slips and reveals all he really wants in the world is for Pirate Mage to be a Tier 1 deck. 

All animal noise has been reduced but not completely.  Thank Rod for this.
