"I love this place so much," said 3/3 Shattered Sun Cleric as she stepped through the time portal.
"I agree. It brings back such memories..." nodded Sunfury Protector, giving taunt to all of her friends, no matter their placement.
"Good for you," said Warsong Commander, who was sitting away from the group.
6 mana Stormwind Champion approached her, putting his hand on her shoulder. "You're still upset about your nerf?"
"Of course I am! Why did it have to be me? Frothing Berserker used to be 1/4, then they doubled his attack. Why they didn't nerf him? Or Grim Patron? Or someone else?" Warsong Commander was crying now.
"YES, SHE WAS ABLE TO GIVE ME CHARGE," the voice of 10/10 Molten Giant thundered through the air.
"AND ME TOO," 10/10 Mountain Giant joined his friend.
"She was able to give everyone charge, no matter their attack!" shouted Shieldbearer angrily, enraging himself to +1 attack.
"I was," Warsong Commander agreed. "So they nerfed me. Then I wasn't used for quite some time. Even OTK Warriors didn't need me."
"But you rose again alongside the Grim Patron Warriors, didn't you?" said 0/5 Nat Pagle. Then he was lucky enough to draw a card at the end of his turn.
"I did rise again. I was useful again. But in the end, it was all just a dream. It was all for nothing."
"That's not true," 5 mana Gadgetzan Auctioneer said. "If there’s one thing I've learned, it’s that no deck rules forever."
"You were not prepared," 7/6 Illidan Stormrage finished her sentence and discarded a few cards from both his enemies and allies, then let them draw again.
"I wasn't. I mean, it's such a drastic change. I'm utterly useless now. I'm even more situational than Raid Leader!"
"Tell me about being useless..." 1 mana 1/2 Mana Wraith said.
Warsong Commander continued: "I mean, look at Sylvanas Windrunner. It doesn't matter if she's 5 or 6 mana, she’s still a great card! Why can't I be like her? Why did they have to destroy me?" she asked her friends, sorrow turning into anger.
"Sometimes cards just have to change. I'm not saying it was a reasonable nerf. But hey, at least you had your blast," said Tinkmaster Overspark while he targeted his device towards one of the imps that 1/6 Imp Master spawned.
"And you were most essential part of it," added 1/4 Lorewalker Cho.
"Don't you want to say something, Leeroy? Weren't you upset about your nerf too?" asked Dark Iron Dwarf while he gave +2 attack to him permanently.
"You know people will remember you, right?" 4/3 Cult Master was trying to comfort her.
"Don't be so hard on yourself," 4/3 Argent Commander added.
There was a silence for a while.
Warsong Commander stood up. "You know what, guys? You’re right. It's a tough change, but as long as I remember what I used to be and what I was able to do, I think it's fine. It won't be easy. But knowing that I was part of something bigger - something legendary - will help. My existence had meaning. And while I'm not needed right now, it could change in the future again."
She was smiling now. "And I know I won't be alone. I’ll be waiting with you, guys. Our time will surely come. But for now, I think I'm ready to take my place amongst the legends of the past."
