A Return to Hearthstone

Hearthstone is now available on phones!  As a result I've played it more in the last few weeks than I have in the last year.

It's a great fit on phones.  They already have the touch controls perfected from the tablet versions of the game, they just had to make some minor adjustments for smaller screen sizes and the game is good to go.  I actually think the phone version may be the best version of the game since it can always be in your pocket.

My problem now is that I'm really struggling with not having modern decks.  I don't have any of the expansion content and most of my good decks from when I initially played the game  just suck now.

It's frustrating because I really want to get into it again, but I either need to spend a ton of time earning gold to unlock cards or drop a bunch of real world money on the same thing.  If there were a core pack of cards that I could buy for a flat fee to catch back up I would do it.  But I can't really justify spending the amount of real world money I would need to spend on random cards in booster packs to achieve the same thing.

I'm not sure what to do at this point.  I love piloting a good deck, but the actual acquisition of cards and deck building aren't appealing to me.  It looks like I have a long and slow grind ahead if I want to make my decks viable again.

Right now I'm just having fun messing around with it on my phone but soon I'll need to decide if I want to make it a daily activity and really try to build my card library back up.
