does anyone besides me thinks that this card pretty much became useless?
the whole idea for that card was to gain advantage, but now we cant do that, because usage of cards who plays altar is denied.
so what you think? i really liked it more in closed. it was much more tactical.

Its stall only now, i guess they want to stop, that u can stall and do other stuff at the same time. After all there is no card that can dispell fortunes. Both OTK decks still work pretty nice.

whats the point of stalling when you literally cant do anything. whats the point of that card then?

When you have creatures in 4 rows, atacked with them and on next enemy atack they would have died.
If you stall the game, enemy wont have their atack, and you kill them instead. This card gives you hudge advantage.

And you can still play events or am I mistaken?.

You can.
Anyway I use 1 Altar in my current Deck.

Well then events, hero ability/resource raise/ draw doesn't look like anything. Besides card is cheaper now.

the most dissapointing is that i cant use week of knowledge after i use altar of shadows.
but i get the point of what you guys are saying.
its important to know when to play this card. it had really different use in closed beta. i guess i just have to adjust it to using in new style.
