Huge meta change coming to HearthStone with December update
The Hearthstone meta had quite a shake when the tenth expansion, Rastakhan’s Rumble came out at the start of this month. Nevertheless, decks like Odd Pally, Taunt Druid and Shudderwock Shaman didn’t change too much and have been present ever since the release of The Witchwood expansion. This is why there will be an upcoming balance update, going live December 19th.
Wild Growth: Will cost 3 mana instead of two.
Nourish: Will cost 6 mana instead of 5.
Level Up!: Will cost 6 mana instead of 5.
Saronite Chain Gang: Description now reads “Summon another Saronite Chain Gang”. This way Shudderwock isn’t as easily played multiple times in one game.
Leeching Poison: Will cost 1 mana instead of 2. Description now reads “Give your weapon lifesteal THIS TURN”.
This update will mean the end for Kingsbane and Odd Paladin decks alike. Taunt Druid was hit pretty hard as well and won’t be as effective as it used to be. The era of the Hunter is upon us.
