there's no middle ground, no actual magic game.
The deciding factor seems to be that "too long, no fun" is worse than "no fun, quickly done". Legitimate if you measure fun over time rather than fun per game.
It remains bad that the card was specifically designed to allow such a play pattern in the first place.
with Trickery, the main issue IMO is how fast the matches actually go....
so all the people that just want to quickly farm arena will use the deck because nothing will burn through the farming process faster.
and then it generates a stupid amount of bad matches.
I've encountered far more of this deck than I'd like... lol.
