Although the patch 20.2 notes were not very long for Duels, we've got some very noteworthy updates to the mode!

The first major update involves some new tech which is going to give us more consistency in our deckbuilding. Now, we will be offered treasures that better synergize with the cards in our deck. This should allow us to play with more dependable outcomes which could potentially lead to increased success with certain types of decks. Blizzard has also provided Paladins a nerf, increasing the mana cost of Humble Blessings up to 4 mana, from 3. This delay should curb some of their power, making things feel a bit more fair.

On the meme side of things, we've got an update that has unbanned Nozdormu the Eternal, so have fun the next time Nozdormu Day, the 15th of every month, comes around.

Patch 20.2 arrives on May 4 and contains a huge update to Battlegrounds with the addition of a Quilboar tribe, a Diamond Ragnaros card, and much more.
