    Shaman nerfs announced

    https://www.hearthpwn.com/news/7147-...nges-announced

    Corrupt Elementalist

    Now costs 6 Mana (up from 5).

    Sludge Slurper

    Now has 1 Attack (down from 2).

    Faceless Corruptor

    Now has 4 Attack (down from 5).

    Mogu Fleshshaper

    Now costs 9 Mana (up from 7).

    Also here is something cheeky which I bet a lot of people won't notice, nightmare amalgam is being removed form battlegrounds, that will definitely change things a huge amount.

    Nightmare Amalgam

    Has been removed from the pool of available minions.

    Several things actually. Coldlight seer was also changed to tier 3, a couple of bad cards were moved back a tier (I still don't see people running Beast or Boogeymonster and Tier 4 for mechs has vastly better choices than the egg) and brann is replaced by bartendotron. I am not sure Brann needed to be removed with Amalgam removed tbh. Coldlight seer at tier 3 means you will want to upgrade earlier as a murloc since you don't have three good cards at tier 2 now.
    Hail Lilith and see you in Hell!

    Oh yeah I saw those too but didnt see them as that worthy of note but amalgam being removed from the list of minions is huge as they so important in so many strats and whoever gets the amalgam first has a huge advantage.

    This expansion has been a shitshow. Now that shaman is nerfed it's just made way for every insane aggro face deck that can kill you by turn 7.

    That can be countered with decks that heal. I just got owned on my face hunter by a paladin with Nozdormu the Timeless and Nozari + loads of healing.

    Taunts, healing and armor are seeing a comeback

    There is a decent variety of decks right now. The meta is continually evolving which is a good thing imo. And don't forget, we are getting MORE cards when the adventure launches and that will shift the meta again. Personally I am enjoying Galakrond Warrior.

    And more nerfs incoming. Well I've switched to rez priest which seems safe.
