So there apparently was a change made to a specific card interaction, and I say apparently because I have no idea when it happened and Heartstone patch notes are less than comprehensive. The card that got changed was Poison Seeds. It now completes its effect before triggering deathrattles, including the deathrattle of Explosive Sheep. That's right, if you Poison Seeds with Explosive Sheep in play everything will turn into a 2/2, and then immediately die to the Sheep's 2 damage. This makes possible again one of my favorite decks: Fatigue Druid, now with 100% less Tree of Life!

2x Naturalize
2x Wrath
1x Doomsayer
2x Explosive Sheep
2x Wild Pyromancer
1x Youthful Brewmaster
1x Healing Touch
1x Big Game Hunter
1x Brann Bronzebeard
2x Coldlight Oracle
1x Grove Tender
2x Poison Seeds
2x Swipe
2x Keeper of the Grove
2x Starfall
2x Antique Healbot
2x Starfire
1x Justicar Trueheart
1x Reno Jackson

...and then I did a google search and found this:
https://www.reddit.com/r/hearthstone/comments/4bwa8s/poison_seeds_filling_the_board_removing/d1d9ovh

The change was unintentional and will be reverted. Poo. Oh well, still fun while it lasts.

I watched a lot of streamers playing that deck but I thought they reverted it last week.  It's a shame, because that seems like a legitimate and fun interacton that isnt game breaking, dont know why they took it out.

Still working as of this morning. I think they want to take it out because it was unintended and they feel deathrattles going off immediately when a minion dies is a more intuitive functionality.

My initial reaction to the changes, as expressed in three categories:

Yes, good, thank you
Ancient of Lore
Force of Nature
Ironbeak Owl
Knife Juggler
Leper Gnome
Arcane Golem
Big Game Hunter
Molten Giant
Hunter's Mark

Too much, maybe
Keeper of the Grove (would have preferred 2/3)
Master of Disguise (I know they want to cut down on the "you can do nothing to prevent your death" moments, but I really liked the uniqueness of the card)
Blade Flurry (seems like they took all their frustration about the rogue class out on one card)

Not enough
Arena balance
Rogue cards

I pretty much agree.  There better be some crazy good rogue cards coming because they neutered a class that was only barely competitive.  Oil rogue is possibly my favorite deck, and now it won't even be viable in Wild.  I'm quite annoyed by this one.

I also think hunters mark was nerfed simply because of C'thun.  On turn 10 you could mark a big minion and push all that battle cry damage to face.

That makes sense.

So you know what's fun? Putting an 18/18 C'Thun on the board with Brann out

I liked the deck I was watching you play with the other day. I'm going to have to build something similar

I'm not loving hearthstone at the moment. Maybe it was getting totally shafted with my packs, maybe I'm just not into the direction they are taking it.  My time is being spent on overwatch these days.  I do like my N'Zoth paladin though, it's fun to resurrect Tirion, Sylvanas, and Cairn with one card.

I did get very fortunate with packs and something I discovered whilst playing around with the Old Gods is that you don't need much for them to work well. Like, a 10/10 or 12/12 C'Thun is still pretty damn good, and a N'Zoth that brings back even just Sylvanas or Tirion is still pretty damn good. Hell, Yogg gets worse when you get a ton of spells.

I was thinking about this when I came across a deck from Kripparian which highlights the above findings:



Yeah it's expensive on the Dust, I got really lucky with the packs.

Screw both of you, 67 packs and all i got was corrupted NAT FUCKING PAGLE.  You know, the card that gives your opponent cards?  Luckily I had some dust and made N'zotha and Happy Rag.
