Time is running out to get a full dust refund for the two cards that were nerfed in the patch that hit two weeks ago. The following cards are currently eligible for a full dust refund through September 14:
- Stealer of Souls - Now costs 6 mana (Up from 4). Now has 4 Attack (Up from 2).
- Flesh Giant - Now costs 10 mana (Up from 9).
If you missed the original comments from Blizzard on why these cards were nerfed, here's what they had to say.
Dev Comment: While the winrate of decks including Stealer of Souls isn’t particularly high, the games where these decks win are often won in an extreme way. This change, like our philosophy in the first Stormwind balance patch, is aimed at slowing the down the speed of Stealer of Souls and softening those extremes. Note: Stealer of Souls will remain banned in Wild alongside this change.
Dev Comment: We’re moving Flesh Giant up another mana to further reduce the speed at which comes down in the average game. After monitoring the initial balance to change here, we believe it was a bit too soft and are adjusting Flesh Giant accordingly.
