comment What does the term “aggro deck” mean?
At this point I have to revise and say that there are some combo archetypes, though they are gimmicky. The reason for this is that combo strategies in games like magic the gathering are reliant upon the ability to search your deck for the cards you need reliably, and this isn't necessarily possible in hearthstone. However the emergence of decks like miracle rogue and alarmobot/innevate does mean that combo decks exist although they suffer from obvious weaknesses caused by the inability to get cards reliably

comment Rush Deck and Aggro Deck
@Waterseas Yes, that is true. I think that "rush deck" is the result of video gamers not experienced with traditional card games trying to find a word for aggro deck, because they haven't yet been exposed to the terminology.

comment Rush Deck and Aggro Deck
To be clear, I don't think your explanation is necessarily unreasonable, but I think people will be confused if you refer to a fast combo deck as a rush deck, based on current usage in the community. Its worth noting that all the terminology is drawn from Magic the gathering, where it would definitely be a source of confusion to call a combo deck a rush deck even if it wins in 1-3 turns. I would say its on you to demonstrate people actually do use the term rush deck to refer to fastcombo decks.

@scenia Combo deck. Just because its fast doesn't make it not a combo deck.

comment What is the difference between global and local happiness?
@PaulMarshall Of course, it doesn't actually work very well. Infinite city spam was killed by the science penalty per city that was patched in combined with the heavy push toward support for tall civilizations via policies, not by happiness limitations. Its easy to take certain policies and ICS while remaining happy-neutral but it can really hurt you instead of helping.
