Howdy! I decided to make a video about the nerfs where i explain my point of view about upcoming changes and speculate how the meta might look like. Feel free to discuss ;)

- They intentionally nerfed Molten Giant really hard because they didn't want people to play that card anymore as it was hurting the ability for Standard to change.
That's pretty much the biggest fuck you they've ever given to the dedicated players.
Molten giant was one of the best cards in the game and gave skilled players a way of showing their skill. The only reason it could be considered 'overpowered' in the first place was because of all the players who were stupid enough to give their opponents free giants over and over again.

What basically means they lied about Molten Giant back in the days. In the nerf announcement they said, that Molten Giant should still be used because with Druid Combo gone it would be less risky to go lower on health. Well, that was a lie, they just wanted to destroy the card. Molten Giant was never meta defining. It was only run in some Mage and Warlock decks and these decks were rather hard to pilot.
The team was a bit disappointing that Shaman got even more popular after Karazhan, as that was not their intention.
Sometimes when I read things like that I ask myself if Ben Brode is game director or the janitor. Who would have thought that a 1 mana 3/3 weapon and a 2 mana AoE would destroy the only hard counter that existed at this point (Zoolock).
Ben thinks the Grimy Goons mechanic will be used more in the future, once the meta slows down a bit.
Yeah, the meta slows down every time in Ben Brode's head … maybe someone should tell that the 2/3 pirate decks on ladder. Grimy Goons will never work. It is too draw dependend and too slow. Even if you draw perfect, you cannot afford to skip the first 3 turns. Control Decks will just AoE you every turn until your bonus is used up and Aggro decks will just kill you.

I wonder what new kind of Shaman they wanted to make with Spirit Claws.
Oh well, I'm sure the next expansion is going to make it painfully obvious.
