Alec Dawson has shared more insight into the world of card unnerfs in another series of tweets. This finalizes the list of class cards from the past couple of days which contained cards for Druid, Hunter, and Mage and yesterday's Paladin, Priest, and Rogue. Today we get to see the Shaman, Warlock, and Warrior unnerfs. Neutrals tomorrow!

  • Nerf reverts are taking place in Patch 20.0 which is live later this month.
  • The reverts will come shortly before the expansion launches. Huge meta swing!
  • Some cards were not fully reverted but were instead "soft" reverted. This is because these cards may come back to Standard in the future.
  • Cards like Level Up!, which would only add strength to archetypes already doing well are not being unnerfed.

Read on for all the newly announced changes, divided by class. If you're looking for the new core set that is coming this year, head on over to our Core Set 2021 guide. If you are interested in the new expansion, you can find the currently revealed cards in our Forged in the Barrens guide.
