Who says you need an expensive deck to win at Hearthstone?

Not PawełHS, a Polish pro player who was looking for a new challenge. He created a free account and, with just the cards he gained from his free three packs and free Arena run, made it all the way to Legend status in ranked play in just three days, using a warrior pirate-themed deck with lots and lots of weapons.

You can view the last few games of PawełHS’s run in the video above, with the final victory coming in the last minute. He also talked about his run on Reddit, where he says that his final stats were 138-75, a 64.8% winrate. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to build a new deck…

    this game is heavy pay to win. Everyone comes with the best cards and almost all use the same deck. you are forced to keep your deck up to date with the newest and best cards or u will have no chance.

      That doesn’t mean it’s Pay 2 Win. Come on man you’re smarter then this. You can play Arena get card packs easily along with the quest. Haven’t payed a dime, have every single card. Learn what Pay to win means.

    Have you ever published any article on this site that is not a pathetic PR thing for activision/blizzard rigged pay to win game?
    3 days? That kid played 200+ games . For most people who have a life it would take a whole month to do that.

    Also tht deck is just a cheaper version of one that has two legenday cards in it: leroy and finly ( you need to buy 4 adventure wings to get that one )

    This game is an abomination and it is pathetic that journalism is completly dead and you are just pathetic little shills.

    Ya, the only reason why this is possible now is because of the latest expansion, they made it so you can’t use most of the old cards in ranked matches, and can only mainly use “whisper’s of the old gods” cards. And they give you like 8-10 free packs + ca’thun legendary. Basically most of the cards they give you revolve around ca’thun. So it relatively should’t be that hard considering you already have most of the cards people run in the old god decks anyways.
