So what cards does everyone think will be massively effected by the upcoming nerf? I know aggro decks and Highlander Priest are givens, but what other cards will get hit hard? I believe Prince Keleseth will take a huge nose-dive due to these nerfs. Although he's still a hugely powerful minion, I think the nerf to Patches (due to the impact on aggro and pirates in general), CC and Bonemare will definitely impact how often we see the Prince now. What do you guys think? What are some other cards that might be impacted by these nerfs?
i play a lot of keleseth priest (not big spell) without the pirate package and I think the deck will still be good. the raza nerf hurts a little, but maybe i just take out the highlander package and get a little more consistency. big spell priest will still be good too, possibly better since u dont might not lose on turn 5 if u dont have duskbreaker on 4.
Keleseth will still be strong, but yes, the nerfs to all the cards are hitting Keleseth rogue hard, because they use all 3 neutral cards. It defintively makes a double keleseth-combo a bit easier than before, because a turn 3 4/4 Patches with charge is simply GG. And no 0 mana 5/5 or 7/7 also hits pretty hard.
Warlock isn't as dependent on the cards as Rogue is: They also used the pirates-package, but i do think that Zoo might be the big winner out of it: Patches no longer having charge helps zoo to stabilize the board. Patches was the anti-zoo card; why play this deck, when other aggro-decks are faster. Keleseth will still work there too, and without patches being a thread anymore. Zoo was never an aggro-deck like other decks, it was always about board control, so even through Zoo also used the 0 mana 5/5, it was much harder to use.
And other Decks who use Keleseth: who knows if now more controllish decks might try him: for example big spell decks.
