Half Blood Grabbow still viable? http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php?topic=57521.msg1178305#msg1178305

Hello everyone,

I'm new here, and as such was following the Rags to Riches 2.0 guide. I build the HBG deck for farming AI4 as suggested, but so far I have yet to win a single game with it. I've lost something like 15 games in a row (0/15, I haven't won a game against AI4 yet). While I do have terrible luck, I feel like this is beyond that. Any advice?

It's more than viable, it's the best grinder if you lack rares & upgrades

Original deck thread includes listing that if you have Arsenic, you should replace Mummy with that

There's always alternatives if HBGB doesn't suit your tastes

If you're misplaying it's likely due to not playing your scarce control conservatively enough or burrowing your shriekers without cause

I'm new too. got 2 wins on 5 tries with HBGB against HB and an upped card each time. Then I realized I don't want to sell those so I switched to rares farming in the arena which is easier.
Good luck.

I figured it had to be a strategy thing or it wouldn't still be recommended. Maybe I just need to give it more tries and play a little differently. I'll still with it and see if I can figure it out.

EDIT: I just tried one more game against AI4 with HBGB and won on my first try. My problems must have been a combination of bad luck and bad strategy.
