A round of card balance updates is arriving this week focusing on Turtle Mage and Guardian Druid.
Quote From Blizzard
- Old: Battlecry: Discover a copy of a spell in your deck and cast it with random targets. → New: Battlecry: Discover a spell in your deck and cast it with random targets.
- Old: [Cost 7] → New: [Cost 8]
As always, I hope they plan to undo these nerfs when the cards rotate into wild.
Turtle mage was an interesting deck that I never got a chance to really use, and the card's only other real use was generating more copies of ice block, which it now cannot do.
I really hope they don't. I've played against it in Wild.
Infinite freeze is one of the most unfun things in the game. But not as unfun as infinite Ice Block.
Guardian Animals still op
No more Flik making turtle mage cry. I understood the nerfs of course, but theres a sense of happiness when u throw Flik into the turtles that is hard to replicate
I completely agree, but while I love watching Flik's shadowy stabby-stab-stabs fill the screen, I also considered turtle mage the least fun deck to play against in HS's entire history otherwise... and that's saying something. So on balance I have to say it's worth it.
Well... there goes my odd Beast druid deck....feelsbadman :-( ....Crafted Hadronox for that...
You can do a Hadronox Druid or Odd Hadronox Druid without focusing on a beast base. Carnivorous Cube and Witching Hour are both odd so you can just chain-res Hadronoxes.
Thanks, that also sounds like fun...we'll give it a whirl
Remember that Baku is a beast so you can't play her if you want to use Witching Hour to resurrect Hadronox in Odd Druid. I made that mistake in the past.
ez 800 dust on that turtle. Guardian Animals still good but not meta
Why Guardian Animals instead of Overgrowth why...
Funfact: Guardian animals is also a Hunter card. Yes, I'm suprised too.
The surprises don't ends here! Apparently there are some more dual class cards in the last expansion!
Nice nerfs, the tortolan one is what most people suggested and does not destroy the card, just makes it more fair.
Guardian animals the same, it comes a turn later giving the opponent more time to develop and answer it.
Im ok with this nerfs.
Big changes to Tortollan!
I thought this article was by ShadowsOfSense because of the artwork lol :)
