Hope they nerf some legendaries, and not the commons and rares to deal with the problematic legendaries, as they did with the Kingsbane Rougue. Felt like cheating players out of 1600 or (3200 in my case) dust!
let's hope they will not nerf some stuff only to please flock's will. in general standard is quite balanced
edit: ok, i was wrong, ladder is full of wineasy decks, game becomes less and less interactive, that's result of higher power level of this expansion, we'll end up like kobolds & catacombs, GOD SAVE US
It won't matter much in the bigger scheme of things... once the power vacuum has settled there will be a new king of the mountain... and the Hearthpwn community will complain about that next. Rinse and Repeat.
Maybe they buff a few cards too. I don't like it when my Pocket Galaxy is not drawn or played by turn 5. So I think it should start in your opening hand.
Some of the previous buffs were just good enough to see some fringe play. Some were far too buffed. I hope they don't give up on buffing older cards, just don't jump by 2 mana reduction.
If you noticed all the 1 mana reductions were fine and fair, and no one is talking about how broken they are. But they buff Galaxy by 2 mana and it becomes the most OP card in any Mage deck. I am not alone, in my predictions, but here goes...
Predictions on Nerfs, aka Balance changes.
1. Pocket Galaxy increases to 6 mana.
2. Dr Boom Hero loses Discover a Mech, gets a random mech instead. There are some really bad ones too.
3. Prism increases to 5 mana and/or Draw a minion and a Spell. Reduce the spell by half cost and double the minion mana cost. (minimum of 1 and maximum of 10).
4. Calling increases to 4 mana.
5. Inner Fire and combo piece go to HOF.
6. Mountain Giant gets HOF'd.
I am not saying all of these changes take place, but if they do, these are what are the most likely ways they do get nerfed or changed.
Gonna nerf BIG PRIEST????? Increase mana cost on ALL spells by 1
Resurrect from 2 to 3
Eternal Servitude from 4 to 5
Shadow Essence from 6 to 7
Diamond spellstone from 7 to 8
Blizz said a few weeks ago that Barnes is the top choice to nerf in order to address big priest. Consider any additional nerfs to be a nice bonus, one that might not happen in the same balance patch as Barnes, but as something down the road if big priest is still OP after Barnes gets nerfed.
