    Patch notes are up: https://hearthstone.blizzard.com/en-us/news/23840665/24-0-3-patch-notes

    Card changes since that page is long:

    NERFS
    Celestial Alignment – Now only affects the casting player.

    Vile Library – No longer gives the base +1/+1 buff, only +1/+1 per Imp on board.
    Kobold Illusionist – Now costs 5 mana (up from 4).
    All of those cards (or in the case of Stag Spirit, all of the cards generating it – Spirit Poacher, Stag Charge, Wild Spirits and Ara'lon) will be disenchantable for their full crafting cost for the next 2 weeks (until August 30).

    Silverleaf Poison – Now costs 1 mana (down from 2).
    Halkias – Now also has Stealth.
    Sanguine Depths – Now gives minion +2 Attack (up from +1 Attack).
    Imbued Axe – Now gives your damaged minions +1/+2 and has Infuse (2) to make it +2/+2 (instead of +1/+1 and Infuse (3) to make it +2/+2).
    Cruel Taskmaster – Now has 2/3 stats (up from 2/2).
    Tidal Revenant – Now gives 8 Armor (up from 5).

    struggling to see how those buffs will make warrior even remotely viable, your board still gets chain frozen/devolved and you die because you have no draw

  • ronzoronzo Registered User regular
    Warrior still seems screwed, DH and Rogue might see more play after this, paladin’s changes are nearly all on on silver hand spawning.

    tbh im utterly terrified of roguestone because the lambyseries deck was already a super powerful sleeper deck and it just got some absolutely massive buffs

    rogue dominated metas are only slightly less toxic than priest dominated ones imo

    Does the change to Halkias do what I think it does? Does it create a secret for him to be resummoned with?

    edit: nvm, they just gave him stealth, which is pretty good actually

    Yeah it took me a couple reads to understand what was going on there. I was so focused on the ultimately pointless wording change and what it might mean that I glossed right past the sneakily prepended keyword.

    I'm currently rank 2 with a control paladin. The class isn't terrible, just very underplayed.

    It's great versus warlock, shaman, mage and Hunter.

    In any case, I feel like Sire Denathrius needs a nerf to hit minions only. He’d still be a one sided board clear and Reno, he just wouldn’t be an OTK that shows up in every darn deck.

    Bran/Sinstrider/Sire is too good of a 9-mana late game combo. Here's an idea - make Sire randomly target everything instead of just enemies.

    I really strongly feel that the problem being described is not Denathrius. Like the argument here is "As long as Brann/Kael are in the format, you're not allowed to have flashy expensive battlecry cards". Enablers are more important than the most efficient thing they enable

    I came back from vacation and somehow wound up playing a bit of Arena, like in the old days. Turns out I'm now bad at it, what with not knowing any cards printed in the last 2 years or so? Still, I have so many free tickets that Hearthstone refuses to even tell me how many, so I'm just gonna keep burning them up.

    Anyway, how can I change my card back for arena? It always takes the basic one. I'm pretty sure I could just set a random card back before? But that option is gone? And just favoriting every single card back (like the internet tells me) is tedious and also doesn't seem to work for Arena?

    So that's what keeps druids in check. Every time I see a druid I wonder how a class can have so many completely cracked effects going on and not be the top dog.

    I've also had druid opponents play nothing into wild growth into guff into durdle into die to a board full of minions so this all makes sense.

    Sightless Watchers have been a huge boon to set up future turns, which is a big deal in this deck.

  • AlphagaiaAlphagaia Registered User regular
    I dunno, I feel I like the draw your cheapest minions spell better, as it makes sure it will make your Brann cheaper and thins your decks.

    I don't disagree. I might try it out. Drawing two is also huge for the quest.

    The only reason I like my sightless watchers is because the deck only loses to aggro. And I like being able to pull topples and other anti-aggro stuff while also putting a body on the board. It feels like it's shored up my bad matchups while not hurting my good ones.
