    Its no secret I found the vanilla release of bandlewood to be basically unplayable once the meta settled.

    Gangppank burn, scion Draven, Nami, and shadow creating this really poor play space where it was impossible to tech against everything.

    But fortunately this balance patch did two major things.

    It hit all the major decks and nerfed them, but secondly it made a lot of my favorite decks and play styles viable again.

    Yes Ekko is great now, like actually great if you build him right, same with Lux. TF is playable again, just by merit of bringing down the overall power curve.

    Asol absolutely Targon is playable again, while we are still seeing a lot of just add vandlewood decks, the truth is it feels way easier to beat deal with.

    Same thing with Poppy Zed etc. Because now you only need to tech against aggro, instead of like 5 different things.

    I love it I'm actually enjoying the game again for the first time since Bandlewood released great patch, fixed a lot of the games problems.

    Keep it up

    I get what your saying, I still think that some of the Bandle unit's like Stone Stackers and Lecturing Yordle are overstated for their price but overall it's easier to climb with non meta decks.

    I'd say mayor is probably the only card left the devs are probably looking at real closely. Like how many decks are literally just Add mayor and telescope and stress defense, and minimorph and boom you're done.

    The aggro bandlewood stuff was hit hard as it should have been, the fact that stone stackers used to just be better then that 2/3 noxious card was dumb.

    Otherwise so much stuff went right, every deck can be scary now in its own way, with the exception of garen or like Kindred but even then they buffed that 3 mana elite card which helps.
