This week gave us a look at the much anticipated nerfs to cards in the Classic Set. The nerfs, and the exit of GvG and Naxx, herald the coming of Standard/Wild Formats in Hearthstone.

Some of these are cards that I had heard rumor, from reliable sources, were being evaluated. I have also added a couple of cards that I thought would be nerfed as well. Read More →

That is the question. The question that so many people ask themselves at the start of each season. There are many players that say that aggro decks are the only way to go if you want to have a shot at getting legend if your stars from the previous season landed you somewhere rank 17 or below. With the meta we have been living in the last 18+ months, I feel these players have a strong argument.
