I can already hear both of them cheering a lot, telling each other (and the audience) how excited they are about the new  awesome expansion and the great cards. -.-

I really think this expansion has the potential to be fun, but sadly a lot of the cards are so bad I don't think the meta will change much til next expansion

This. Of course we have to wait but I see no reason why Jade Idiot (errm Idol I mean) druids should stop or why Highlander should stop doing what they do all the time and making the game more and more boring.

And obviously most players are not interested in having fun, no matter which cards an expansion brings.

The only good thing about K&C so far is that there have been no more (censored) "Highlander" cards, meaning it seems they might potentially could have gotten the message Reno & Co was the worst mistake they ever made. At last.

Reno Jackson was a success, it was an excellent card, like Loatheb level excellence, Raza the Chained was a success and Shadowreaper Anduin was a success 'individually'. If these cards see play in different times, they would be totally fine. I mean, DK sees play in big priest, but it is balanced there.

When you put all three in one deck, most dominant archetype in wild right now, it is total garbage for everyone, except Orange, who said that he wants to play highlander priest until the day he dies.

Reno Jackson was the absolute worst card ever printed in all the history of Hearthstone, managing to combine the three biggest possible negatives in one card:

- Overpowered, as he had way too big of an impact when played.

- Unbalanced, for the 'negative' effect of having only one of a card isn't one with a large enough collection to pick from.

- Pay-to-win, because to use him you need aforementioned large enough collection.

 

Since my heartfelt thoughts are unfit for writing, let me summarise with: Good riddance to bad rubbish!

I think with Reno it's not only about the power of it in the game directly but the frustration it causes for the opponent.

I hated every damn game where this guy showed up, no matter if I won or not. I didn't mind most cards but for Reno, I was happily dancing the moment he rotated out of standard :D

Raza is totally fine on its own.

Anduin not so much. I don't want to say it's totally overpowered but it has the best Battlecry of all the DKs (well, maybe competing with Gul'dan) and even without Raza the hero power is a bit too good with a build-in improved version of Auctionmaster Beardo. But Anduin is still not as bad as Reno was ;)

Anyway ...

Majority of powerful Renolock decks cost more than 6k dust. The wild decks we have up now cost 8.4k dust and 10.8k dust, assuming adventure cards cost no dust, with neither of them containing any cards from year of mammoth, making those a good estimate how much those tended to cost. They were some of the most expensive decks at the time, together with wallet warrior and various N'Zoth decks, mainly paladin.

These numbers look somehow cute compared to what we see now (at least in standard) ... getting worse.

I don't want to say they should give out everything for free or make it cheap as hell but increasing the cost more and more is not wise. It's the same as with taxes, even though they constantly get increased it's short sighted and this approach will collapse sooner or later. On the long run a decrease would benefit everyone more. But maybe we will blow up everything anyway before it will matter :D

It went pretty much like this. But it was somehow entertaining. 

And Ben Brode still sounds like a chicken when he's laughing :D

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.
