I thoroughly enjoyed our recent interview with Hearthstone lead designer Dean “Iksar” Ayala, in which he discussed how the game’s current meta became one of the most balanced Hearthstone has ever seen, with all classes pretty much viable. But balanced doesn’t always mean fun, and there was quite a bit of pushback after from players who argued that the best decks are way too reliant on ‘created by’ effects—ie cards which randomly generate other cards. And in the case of Mage: a lot of other cards.

Today, snuck out alongside the news that next week we’re going to get a Fall Reveal event detailing the next wave of content coming this year, were some patch notes for incoming nerfs. The cards affected are some of the most RNG-heavy designs that the game has ever seen (which really is saying something).
