The great austerity (card) game – Part 5

So its been pack opening day!

I’ll admit I was thinking about recording it, but with Hearthstone being so far into its life, a youtube movie of someone opening 20 packs didnt seem like a massive milestone for the game…

Infact, I wish I had recorded it…


It would of been funny to hear me explore the cards.

So 20 packs, that’s 5 cards per pack so 100 new cards to be added to my collection!
I did today’s quests for 140 gold so decided to buy 1 Goblins vs Gnomes pack too.

So lets do the maths:

Blizzard has no official stats on my chances of drawing xyz type of card, though after more than a year of players getting packs, there is plenty of peoples information / stats on what they go.
There are also amazing YouTubers like Trumps 100 packs of Amaz’s 421 packs!! (it was a long watch).

Chances of getting a legendary card can be summarised as, sketchy at best.
My gut says I fall from “lucky” into the “unlucky” group if I don’t see at least 1 during my 21 packs. Anything after that should be considered God’s work. (this includes epics and multi rares).

So pack after pack was opened – the obligatory rare and me reading all the card texts.

I tried my best to keep a mental note of cards I didn’t think I’d want / need, as these could be turned into dust, and whilst a bad trade (you get about 1/8th of the value), I need all the dust I can to craft cards I need to be better.

Above are all the cards I gained after “dusting” some of the duplicates. I AM VERY HAPPY!

Sylvanas is a great card if I want to play a less fast game and aim to steal minions (I’m thinking a priest deck… and Alexstrasza is an amazing card, which I think I might be able to squeeze into my Mage deck!

In fact I’ll post about the mage updates in the next blog!
