The latest patch has introduced the nerfs announced a few days ago.


Introducing the nerfs a day or so early has created a strange metagame. Druid has taken a huge hit, with no new cards to replace the old ones, and so Murloc Paladin is having a day in the sun while Old Murk-Eye is still available. It is also interesting to note that decks that previously ran Big Game Hunter are still doing so. There are players who still have access to the pre-nerf cards by not logging out, but you are unable to queue into those people.

Nerfed cards can now be disenchanted for full dust value. This value is 40 for Commons, 100 for Rares and 400 for Epics. If the cards are golden, those numbers become 400,800, and 1600. Be sure to dust these cards, as you can always recraft the ones you need later.

The patch has also introduced a new game board and a new emote. "Wow" has replaced "Sorry". I think most people will be glad to not have to hear Jaina's apologies in the future.

The card backs for the next three months have also been revealed. The names for May, June, and July's card backs are Shadowmoon Valley, Zul'Drak, and Halfhill respectively.

I thought the nerfs were sad, but when I read that "Sorry" is removed, I finally know what true sadness feels like. Goodbye saltiness, ultimate BM and opponent's fear and desperation, you will be missed. 

At least Stampeding Kodo and Gladiator Longbow are fixed now.

Have you heard about our new lord and saviour "Wow"?

Nah, clearly the mage "Hello" is the new most trolly emote :P

 

I always make sure to annoy-o-jaina any secret paladins I face on my freeze mage.

"Amazing" just doesn't have the power of "My Apologies." Even though there are heroes that "benefit" from the change, mage is crying in the corner. That is actually the reason I stopped playing my casino mage. Jainy just isn't playable anymore. 

Seriously though, I don't see a reason to remove Sorry. Players can always squelch their opponents, so why not keep it for those who love BM?

As usual, the hearthstone community insists of being a bunch of precious crybabies who are incapable of using common sense and blizzard will always cater to what the bigger crowd wants/complains about.

From what I know about the Tracer pose drama, it doesn't even have to be a bigger group. It doesn't even have to be a reasonable demand (the game is Pegi12 for a reason). I don't actually know what leads to their decision to remove or change stuff. They probably just change anything people cry about, which is not really way to go. Last time, we lost a deck, this time we lose a part of culture, who knows what we will lose next. Alas, such is blizzard's power to change fate. Melodrama aside, it's stupid that they change something that most players are okay with, and a not-so-small group of players actually use and love.

Yes! Now I can attack face with longbow...not really.

As a player of control hunter, I actually appreciate it. The bug lost me a game or two (only counting those I would have won otherwise).

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
