I am interested to see his win rates after the nerf. Personally, i don't think it will be enough to bring him out of the number one-tier. I believe the issue lies in the fact that the buff is not random. Any opinions.
I've used him a couple times since the patch. Coming on later hurts. Surviving another turn or two with no hero buff is hard. Being a turn or two behind on buffs is hard. Buffs being +3/+3 isn't quite the same.
This is a huge nerf but he needed it and he's still decent.
First attempt I finished last. Just now I got second with a Mech build. List to an elemental build with that 6* taunt with over 450 health.
