What is your favorite deck to play?

Aggro Rogue.

What’s your favorite/craziest play you’ve ever made in Hearthstone?

Probably when I played a Crazed Alchemist and Cabal Shadow Priest on a Magma Rager.

What’s your process for testing decks? When does a deck officially become a success?

I play 50 games with it/against the meta decks with my practice partners, and if it has a good enough win rate, I’ll use it until the win rate changes.

If you could design a card, what would it be?

A four-mana 4/4 that reads: Spells cannot target anything but this minion while it exists on the board.

Are there any players you’re looking forward to or nervous about playing against?

I’m looking forward to practicing with Xixo and Ostkaka—two of my practice partners—as well as Realz and Chakki.

If you could make Polymorph turn a minion into something other than a sheep, what would it be?

A black cat.

How does one go about making a deal with Ragnaros?

Ask Amaz.

What are you passionate about outside of Hearthstone and other video games?

I’m passionate about football (soccer to Americans) and watching TV.
