"Baku and Genn are powerful cards that have promoted new strategies since their introduction in the metagame. Those strategies have been more prevalent than we’d intended in Standard, and we felt that they might end up overshadowing what we’re going to introduce in the Year of the Dragon. In order for set rotation to breathe new life into Standard and maintain overall health of the ladder, we are rotating Baku and Genn into the Hall of Fame a year earlier than normal."
My beloved Even Paladin, I am glad I had the chance to play with you, after the witchwood nerfs people forgot about you, but secretly you were still a powerhouse overshadowed perhaps by how cheap your odd brother was. Some may have hated you, but I loved how playing you made me feel I was never without a chance, with a bit of luck and a bit of skill we could triumph over the strongest foes!
That was cheesey as heck but oh well, Even Paladin is my favourite deck of all time, but if Baku has to go, so does Genn. Its only fitting Genn goes into the HoF. And besides the even decks in the right classes are just as busted ss Baku decks.
