I ran two copies of Jeweled Scarab in control priest before eventually replacing it with Museum Curator. It exceeded my original expectations by a landslide. It gave me something I can play on turn 2 (as opposed to using my hero power on my opponent’s face and using the “Threaten” emote), and has often times offered me good 3-mana cards including Injured Blademaster, Deathlord, Dark Cultist, Velen’s Chosen, and even Earthen Ring Farseer. Never underestimate an old man with an Excavator T-Shirt Yeah, Jeweled Scarab is a sleeper card that gets underestimated a lot. When somebody plays a Turn 2 Scarab against you and you don’t have a threat on the board or at least played on Turn 2 as well, then you KNOW you’re going to fall behind tempowise.

I’d argue the exact opposite. Funwise the LoE cards just excel. Yes, the Naxx minions are very strong and useful, but there’s also a decent amount of utter shit in Naxx that doesn’t see play at all. LoE also has unplayed cards, but most of them are unplayed by us “hogs” who already have anything. Sure, we prefer anything over the Anubisath Sentinel, Never underestimate an old man with an Excavator T-Shirt but a new player might get great value out of a very easily obtainable, decently “threatening” (it’s a must-remove card for your opponent after all) minion, especially given the fact that we still really don’t have all THAT many great 5 mana minions.

Besides, as a new player, Discover is just a much more fun tool. You can actively get high-class cards from other adventures if you are lucky with those Discoveries. Along with that, LoE provides much more cards for your gold. Each LoE wing gives you almost twice as many cards, Never underestimate an old man with an Excavator T-Shirt and you only have to buy 4 wings instead of 5. For a new user, I’d say that choosing between 30 cards with Naxx or 80 cards with LoE (45 from the adventure, and 35 from the 7 packs you can buy with the extra gold), LoE gives so much better value. Your typo toward the end “When comparing the last three songs” confused me for a second. What is this, Drakengard?
