    After playing a lot of Galakrond Shaman over the past week, and knowing the type of nerfs that Blizzard is known for, I'm almost 1000000% sure that they will overcompensate and hamper the deck so much that they will then be forced to deal with the flood of other OP styles.

    If only there was a way that they could RESEARCH and DEVELOP a good nerf that will not only remove the overwhelming threat the current meta is taking, but still balance out the class so that it isn't unplayable.  But hey, we can dream can't we.

    the nerf, if any , will end up being something inconsequential to the over all arch of Shaman.  Honestly, they'd to best by dealing with it over the next 4 months until the next expansion kicks out the Witchwood cycle. 

    You don't want to kill interest in the game by NOT addressing something that annoys the fanbase for months. If the successors to the Ben Brode regime have a positive against the founder, its that they have been quicker to address a problem card or class.

    Hearthstone has been lucky recently. Battlegrounds took off while the meta staled because they let an experiment (bring back old cards like N'zoth) go on too long. If Hearthstone Battlegrounds hadn't been released, there'd be a significant increase in talk about "the death of Hearthstone because of N'zoth and evolve."

    They've gotten great reviews on cards and interest in the Year of the Dragon, but if they let the game turn into Shamanstone or Pirate Warrior 2: Ancharrr Boogaloo, and people who enjoy other decks find it unfun and quit, they'll lose out to other entertainment options, and eventually, another card game.

    HS has been fortunate competitors have failed, and the one that might break Heathstone's hold is still in the works. I don't have interest in Runeterra, but I also think Riot isn't going to blow it like Valve did.

    /conspiracy theory of mine: Blizzard's founder is the voice of Thrall, therefore Shaman must almost always be the OP class

    How does your theory come in to play for the overwhelming rez priest in wild?  Shaman up all you want, Wild is flooded with Rez Priest and I've only been able to consistently beat it with a combo deck that dies to aggro every single time.
