3 amiibo that DESERVE a throw-combo AI patch!

by Doc

Amiibo have always had issue with grabs and grab hitboxes – the only functional kind of grab in the game are command grabs, which are invisible to the opponent amiibo. Nintendo’s been very unconcerned with making sure that part of combat is functional, and it shows in the amiibo meta – to this day, the characters that were designed to use throws are mostly inferior to the tanky heavyweights, according to the amiibo tier list.

So who should get an AI patch?

I’ve also had an article put up on Hearthstone Top Decks, so thanks to anybody who checked it out.

There’s been a bit of a shift in the meta since patch 18.4.2 came out, and I’ve been playing that meta (around 4.5K MMR on one account, 5.5K on the other, so nothing too crazy) a lot since that patch. Here’s an analysis.

Wild Secret Mage Guide

Introduction

Secret Mage has been a strong, much hated part of the Wild meta for a good few expansions now. The combination of strong Secrets from the past and a few new tools, most notably Cloud Prince and Aluneth, allow a deck that can rely heavily on burn- but also survive the aggressive meat grinder that is the Wild meta via board control, and draw enough to pull it all off. Despite no longer being a Tier 1 deck, Secret Mage is still very strong and more than capable of posting a good winrate, with the opponent often getting burnt to 0 by Turn 6-7.
