Reverted Nerfs – Sludge Slurper, Raza the Chained, Call of the Wild, Yogg-Saron, Spiteful Summoner & Lesser Emerald Spellstone

It’s happening! The nerf reverts that were announced recently are now out. Devs have previously announced 10 nerf reverts, but so far we’ve only got six of them. The last 4 will be coming soon (on March 26).

Here’s the full list of reverted nerfs:

And here are the upcoming reverted nerfs that haven’t been released yet:

  • Dr. Boom, Mad Genius – Now costs 7 mana (down from 9).
  • Giggling Inventor – Now costs 6 mana (down from  7). So it’s not a full revert, but rather a middle-ground.
  • Raiding Party – Now costs 3 mana (down from 4).
  • Reckless Experimenter – The cost of minions can once again be reduced to 0 (now that Echo cards no longer can get their cost reduced to 0, something that was changed recently).

They will come out alongside Hall of Fame rotation on March 26, 2020.

    >>Devs have previously announced 10 nerf reverts, but maybe they’ve changed their minds
    >>about some of them. Or maybe we still have some more coming soon!

    They had said 5 wild, 4 YotR, and 1 YotD. This announcement is exactly 5 wild and 1 YotD. My guess is that they are holding off on officially announcing/confirming all 4 YotR until closer to the rotation since they presumably don’t want them played in standard and don’t want to confuse/taunt players with a reversion that is still weeks away.

      I sure hope they can, but raza is gonna have a hard time fighting vargoth and his turns. Nonetheless, I am going to be testing a few dozen priest brews until I get somewhere

        Yeah I still don’t think it’s fast enough to compete with Time Warp Mage, but I hope that it’s at least competitive. I have played priest the least out of all the classes and want to work on that golden portrait
