Buffing caravans is a waste. I think 3-4 buffs for shaman and underperforming archetypes like taunt druid, hero power mage, delete warlock. Dan also mentioned a buff for Dark Inquisitor Xanesh (it would be nice to see more tempo oriented priest).
Only thing I can say is: I hope I have A LOT copies of those card. I am missing 7 Classic/Legacy Legendaries for fulfilling Diamond Ragnaros requirements, so I really NEED A LOT of dust. Diam Rag is the only Diamond card I would like to have in my collection.
Too bad they stopped giving out classic packs for tavern brawls etc...
I got in diamond after a long accumulation. Unfortunately, he was a bit of a disappointment. I personally would not waste that much dust to get him in diamond, this badboy would actually be cheaper:
The only upside is that Diamond rag CAN be played in Classic, because... logic. There, he is the 3rd most played legendary.
You realise that is a hard buff, right? 1 mana Gain 3 Random 1-drop minions is insane value! First Day at School is already super strong gaining 2 cards, but an extra card for 1 more mana is incredible value.
What I fail to understand: why did they even print Watch Posts and Caravans? Both of them are unplayable. I don't think anyone ever put a Caravan in their deck. SIlly.
There have been countless cards over the years that have been underpowered or not seen play. This is extremely normal for this and any card-based game. And Watch Posts saw play at the start of the meta when people were sussing out the archetype until it became apparent that it was simply not enough value for the current meta climate. However, as we have also seen many times in the past, the value of these cards can change in an instant when a meta shifts and cards that saw next to no play before can suddenly find their spotlight.
A prime example of this is that old Druid favourite, Hadronax.
Crabrider and mankrik's wife seem pretty obvious nerfs...I'd say also first day of school and incanter's flow. Not certain about the last class nerf though. If they listen to all the whining it'll be tickatus but it could also be conviction or refreshing spring water. Maybe something else entirely.
Won't even go into buff territory, I just hope they're dumb enough to buff celestial alignment to 6 mana so that I can seamlessly transition from consistently killing opponents on turn 6 with mozaki to doing the same with malygos. A man can dream.
We might find out in a few hours what gets nerfed and buffed, really hoping Tickatus is among the 5 nerfs! He's the most complained about card!
Will the information about nerfs and buffs come today?
If the nerf patch is to arrive on Tuesday, no reason we should know of the nerfs today so we have the entire weekend to reflect on them and think about new decks and builds to create. Blizz has already finalized the nerfs by now.
Incanters flow is not an issue, just get rid of Lunacy full stop and change refreshing spring water to 1 mana for each spell.
I don't even find crab rider an issue, it's that my only removal spell in hand is OMYogged every single time and will cast Apotheosis on the fker or something and it's game over from there. Still happy to see it nerfed if it is.
First Day of School to 1 mana.
Ticatus just remove the "Corrupt" element so it's solely for Warlock own deck burning.
