    Feel free to post your "table flip moments" here to vent your frustration and receive sympathy from your peers. Basically, any fail/frustration you had today (or previously).

    Today I got a 16/16 van cleef. I was ready to one-shot the enemy. He already used 2 silences, and there was a low chance that he had a neutralize or anything...

    but then he dropped a keeper of the grove and silenced my van cleef. 16/16 to 2/2. :( I won that game, but that sort of thing hurts your morale. :p

    And 2/3 of the last warriors I faced won by mortal striking me to finish me off (when they were below 12 hp, so they got 6 damage). The woes of playing a lock--you spend the game spending your hp and right when you get serious momentum, you die. xD

    Decided to go Warrior (I play Mage usually) one day and played against a Mage.

    Got the Mage down to 1 hp at turn 8ish and I had full 30 + some armor, next 10ish or so turns he successfully keeps blocking all my attacks and drops me to about 8, next turn Pyro. Completely lost my shit.

    That sounds awful. Getting killed by a spell is literally the most depressing feeling. You'll lay down a bunch of awesome high tier units, but then a mage comes in: "Don't mind me. I'ma just slip past you guys and kill this mofo".

    ------

    As for me, today I was playing hunter arena, and I was at 7-2 Win-Loss. I played against a druid. We both got down to 9 hp after many turns (he had about ~6 or so cards left, I had ~10 or so left). He had a stormwind champion + sunfury protector up against my hyena and cult master. I played a stormwind champion + hounds, and killed his champion and his sunfury protector to clear the board. It looks like I was in the clear. But then, this guy got the luckiest top deck draw ever:

    He got a druid + savage roar (not sure which one he drew). It was just enough to finish me off. Not only that, but he also took like 30 seconds to move, so he left me in suspense for the longest time.

    It was sad, to say the least. :(

    This battle was about 3 days ago, my Mage against Warlock.
    He keeps spamming the shit outta his Hero Power and gets wonderful cards and all, but I managed to fend of his minions with spell cards here and there.

    And finally, as my Mage only left with 9 HP and his was around 15-16 I think, and he planned to finish me off.

    But luckily he spam his Hero Power so much, that his card is finished, therefore takes extra 1 damage per draw a blank card (this damage stacks, therefore, I'm in a luck!)

    As turn goes by, his damage increased from 1 damage per draw, to 6 damage per draw, I win by his fatal draw, HAHAHA.

    My HP was 2 at that moment and by the last turn, he drew his final fate, a 6 damage draw, and I won @@.

    Ah yeah forgot to mention, my cards went out too @@, I took damage up until 2 draw blank card damage only.

    i was a shaman and i was againest a mage. i had a powerful board and like 9 hp and he played a secret. Just as I was about to end his life with my Epic ragnaros. It was an ice block. Next turn he plays another secret which was an ice block aswell. Then he top decks a pyroblast and kills me (Rage)

    @Chaosy: Lucky. :p That board looks scary.

    Haha, it is always so sad to die of fatigue. It happened to me before. Fun fact: you can actually force it. Check this out, 2:33, for an interesting use of fatigue to kill an enemy:

    :( That makes me cringe. I haven't seen ice block pay off yet, but I guess it did for that guy.

    Some bounce rogue decks use card draw cards and things like King mukla to fill the opponent's hand and then vanish the opponent's board which will then be wiped.
    Personally I had once fought a priest who stole buzzard and uth from me and played them, obviously not thinking straight as it triggered a ton of card draw for him filled his hand immediately and made him throw away a bunch of cards including Hogger.

    I got Illidan in an arena deck as a warrior. Out of the 4 times I had him in my hand, he was killed the next turn 3/4 times. In the 4th time, he was silenced, so I couldn't spawn the flames. :( It is just depressing.

    FUCk. I was playing arena as a hunter, and I had the worst deck ever. I was 3-2 at the moment, facing a shammy. I was kinda multi-tasking so I wasn't paying attention to the game much. On the last turn, he had the setup below, with an earth totem 0/2. After that procced, I thought it was gg. I had just my rhino, he was at 6 hp. Then I top decked a tiger. I stupidly didn't realize that my tiger got charge from the rhino, so when I placed it, I just clicked "end turn" just as I noticed he became green.

    So I lost. That is literally the stupidest moment I had in hearthstone, ever.

    I was up against a Shaman, when he had like 7 HP left and mine was 15.
    I was so focused on rushing to attack his Hero while ignoring all his totems (4 Hero Power totems), and my attack landed on him was 6 damage in total, leaving his HP left to 1, and I can think I can finish him off the next turn.

    And for the next turn, he dropped Bluegill Warrior and used... Bloodlust.
    His passive totem is available for attacking, and ends the game with his Healing Totem.

    The entire game is a table flip moment because of how RNG and draw based it is.
    Today I just conceded like 10 times because I got no flipping murlocs in my hand from a deck full of murlocs and with only about 6 spells yet the game never failed to give me that hex twice in a row and then I finally get to play with actual cards only to fight a paladin that pulls a light's justice and smacks my murlocs one by one, yeeeh !

    Yeah, shamans are really annoying when you're rushing. The totems are weak, but they play a huge factor. You always have to watch out for wrath of air because it buffs lightning storm to essentially be a cheap-flamestrike. And if there are a lot on the board, then it usually means inc bloodlust (or warlord). Same goes for druids with savage roar.

    It is. Either way, someone flips a table.

    A while ago I was playing Priest vs Priest, and at the end of the game, I had 3 Northshires, one from yolo mind control, with 5 minions total. The other guy used Holy Nova + Circle of Healing, so I died by fatigue with like 30 overkill.

    It is pretty ridiculous. I'm always sitting there thinking, "hmm. He probably won't have another flamestrike". After the second one, I was just thinking "He DEFINITELY doesn't have another flame strike." I had a tiger, warlord, + something else. He had an archmage still up so it dealt 5 damage, and eh it was just sort of gg from that point on. I feel your pain. :(

    How does he gets more than 2 Flamestrike ?
    I understand effect from Archmage Antodinas (was his name?) to get Fireball each time you cast spell, but Flamestrike ??
