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 newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      The second of three Unidentified Magic Items to be revealed from Kobolds and Catacombs, will Unidentified Maul be a smashing success on the ladder?
      Kripparrian revealed the second of three Unidentified Magic Items in Kobolds and Catacombs today on his Twitter accounter, Unidentifed Maul:

      A Paladin Weapon, Unidentified Maul begins each game with an unknown effect and will become "identified" upon drawing the card from your deck. The weapon will always be a 3 mana 2/2, but will be randomly bestowed with one of the four following effects when drawn:

      A couple of the potential modes on this card are very enticing. Two Silver Hand Recruits and a 2/2 weapon for 3 mana is a screaming deal, and the other three modes offer some serious value if you're already ahead on board. Given that three of the four potential modes on Unidentified Maul aren't very good when you're behind, I doubt this card will slot in as an instant replacement for Rallying Blade. Unidentified Maul could end up seeing play in token-based strategies, as granting +1 Attack or Divine Shield to a wide board of minions drawn from Small-Time Recruits is nothing to shake a hammer at.
      Will the random nature of Unidentified Maul be its downfall, or will its synergies with token strategies enable it to see some play on the ladder? Let us know what you think in the comments, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      Mage gets its first revealed Kobolds & Catacombs minion. And guess what? Joust is back!
      This card release was unexpected, since it wasn't on the schedule, but it is welcome nonetheless! The Hearthstone Brazil Instagram account revealed this minion:

      It is interesting to see the Joust mechanic return after such a long time. I'd place this card in average tier. It is worse than Arcanologist, since it has one less health and it's also not guaranteed that it will draw you a spell. Even compared to Novice Engineer and Loot Hoarder, Raven Familiar might be a better body but the other two cards are run in decks that really need the guaranteed card draw. The poor Raven can be a liability in a control oriented Mage deck.
      This card is slightly better for Arena mode. Then again, spells aren't that common in that mode and there's also a reduced offer rate for spells like Fireball and Flamestrike.
      Lastly, the Beast synergy is noteworthy. I don't think we'll be seeing Beast Mage any time soon. So Raven Familiar is a weak 2-mana drop that can be generated and offered to Hunters - although this is mostly going to affect Wild mode.
      Feel free to visit our Kobolds & Catacombs hub for all details and revealed cards of the upcoming expansion.

      Spoiled yesterday as a 6 mana 5/4, Seeping Oozeling now appears on the PlayHearthstone website with a lowered mana cost.
      Edit: Confirmed in a tweet by the official Hearthstone account, the 5 mana 4/3 version of Seeping Oozeling is an error. Yesterday's 6 mana 5/4 version is the card we'll be seeing in K&C this December.
      Reddit user Fabman650 recently noticed that Seeping Oozeling has different stats on the official PlayHearthstone website than it did in yesterday's spoiler. The card was spoiled yesterday as a 6 mana 5/4, but appears on the PlayHearthstone website as a 5 mana 4/3:

      If this is truly an intended update by Blizzard (and not some kind of mistake), this would be a significant buff to Seeping Oozeling. The true power in this card lies in its Battlecry trigger, not its stats, meaning that a reduction to its mana cost would make it significantly stronger. At 5 mana, Seeping Oozeling also compares much more favorably to Savannah Highmane than it did before.
      Is Seeping Oozeling now strong enough to see play? Let us know what you think about the updated card, and remember to check our news forum and the Kobolds & Catacombs hub for more new cards from K&C!

      Silver Vanguard is a new neutral Common minion that will be introduced in Kobolds & Catacombs.
      PC Gamer has unveiled this brand new card: 

      The stats of Silver Vanguard are terrible for a 7-mana card. One could argue that the Deathrattle could trigger more easily with the card having such low health, but the 7 mana slot mostly contains minions with usually beefy stats. Blizzard seems to want to continue the trend they started in Year of the Mammoth, just like with the newly revealed Spiteful Summoner, of minions with interesting effects, but weak stats and slightly elevated Mana costs.
      As the PC Gamer article points out, Silver Vanguard could pull out some nice minions for Paladin and Warrior. Examples are Tirion Fordring, Ragnaros, Lightlord and Grommash Hellscream.
      What do you, guys and gals, think? As always, all the revealed cards can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs expansion hub.
