    Please read the responses of the so called "blizzard defenders" and then the answers of OP. As far as I see it the "defenders of greed" have pretty solid arguments. Some even bring up your point of "win/win changes".

    Also try to detach your emotion from the facts. I advise HearthstoneMathematics, very objective and statistical point of view on the cost of all things hearthstone.

    Totally get your point regarding financial (emotional) investment though.

    Sure thing: What happened to Glide ? Still gamebreaking OP?

    Honest question: Il'gynoth, that card as OP as people cried?

    May I steal your comment? It is too good to rot in this threat alone.

    It is called viewership. You know Blizz want people to watch, but if you invite people who aren't known...well who would watch them?

    Pretty basic thought process tbh.

    Since Thanatos already answered about your Spellbreaker point (wich would've been exactly my answer), i'll go to the deeper point of why give DH silence towards their class identy (even if it is fringe rn):

    I didn't mean to say "how" i meant "why". They needed a way to get through taunt, without giving them single target removal. (two bad cards that won't see play most of the time, unless you REALLY need them in the meta aren't worth the fuss tbh).

    "So does Rogue, yet they nerfed Leeching Poison at one point, which is the only way Rogues can get Lifesteal (besides Spectral Cutlass). I'm aware it was mostly because of Kingsbane, but still."
    Yes, as I wrote: You need armor, lifegain or removal. Rogue has historically good removal. Since DH has no armor/removal they only have lifesteal left. Since no other attacking class has it really, it is free designing space.

    "And all in all, they shouldn't fill up every possible gap in a class."
    Agreed. But with DH they aren't right now, lifesteal is a crucial part of their "face go brr" identity - their biggest distinction towards other classes. To add new cards for it in a new expansion is plain normal and doesn't close a gap.

    "Man, you could be like: "You know what Paladin doesn't have yet? Stealing minions. Let's give them their own Mind Control."
    Where does DH steal an identity of another class "X" to the point it doesn't feel like "DH" but "X"?

    This new legendary is completely in the class identity of DH:
    Recklessly attacking and sacrificing heal for more dmg like the glass canon they are.

    "Why does Aldrachi Warblades have Lifesteal?"
    Again, DH simply needs heal to stay in the game at all, since weapon attacks are their main focus. WL leeches life with spells (with dmg), Druid heals with spells (without dmg), Priests heal all over the place, shaman heals like druid but less predictable/reliable. DH leeches life by attacking smth.
    I honestly don't see the reason to rant about it.

    "THAT would make sense. THAT's class identity."
    DH having lifesteal is lorewise pretty much on point. They consume the life essence of their foes (demons) to turn this new strength against them. That is why they're part demons in the first place.

    BTW, nice to have a conversation without immediate personal attacks (like SinAscendant did).

    Look at the name. It is an old god minion. (In fact it is a "part" of N'zoth)

    Most of those points aren't even "class identity" but simple archetypes.

    Go wide/Go tall
    ... All classes can do that. Literally. Even priest can go wide (midrange).

    "Better control cards"
    Not really. Only small AOE, no Single target removal. Almost no card generation -> fatigue is a big issue.

    "Objectively better burst damage cards"
    Ever seen an aggro focused class without burst? "Better Burst" is very arguable, since it depends greatly on the situation/match up.

    "Lifesteal (Why?)"
    DH hits stuff with its own face. Like all weapon based classes, they need some healing, armor or hard removal.

    "Silence (Why?)"
    Mostly to get through taunt. Example: Magehunter


    BUT to talk class identity, it is defined by the following:

    Weapon/Face as one of the main DMG outputs (I count lifesteal towards this part, as a side effekt)
    (Big) Demons
    Sacrificial pawns, like Coordinated Strike
    Card draw, but no generation. (Glass canon)
    Disruption/Silence, like Mana Burn
    Can deal with small stuff, but not with big stuff

    Soul Shards don't have life steal though. Or do you mean the weapon, that has nothing to do with soul DH in particular?
