(More info about 19.2.1 Balance Update here.)
A lot of players have been asking why Edwin got nerfed now instead of rotating it to Hall of Fame, especially since the annual Hall of Fame rotation is pretty close (it always happens before the first expansion of the year, which would be roughly 2 months from now).
Senior Game Designer Alec Dawson has confirmed on Twitter that Edwin will STILL rotate out to Hall of Fame, with its nerf reverted. And it won’t be the only reverted nerf – Blizzard has already mentioned that they plan to HoF + revert some of the nerfs, but so far Edwin is the only card that was officially confirmed.
Also sorry this didn’t get into the notes but: Yes Edwin will still rotate later this year and yes we will be reverting the nerf (along with others) at that time.
