In the end, Twin Slice nerf didn’t change much. Yes, it made combos with some cards more difficult, but those cards are still good – and so is Twin Slice. If anything, it made the Demon Hunter builds even more aggressive, to take advantage of a slightly higher damage potential with Twin Slice. Because while it’s harder to pull out e.g. crazy Altruis combos out of nowhere, the new Twin Slice adds a few points of damage to the burst potential (since playing both copies, while it costs mana, is now +2 damage compared to the previous version).
Overall, the meta is still basically the same as it was. Interestingly enough, this week we are featuring a lot of Priests – mostly Galakrond versions, but even some Highlanders. And there was more – we haven’t featured every single Galakrond Priest deck, because there were simply too many of them (and we want to have some diversity in the featured decks section). We’ll see whether it’s a trend that will continue, or maybe just a coincidence.
And like always around that time, we’re having less and less decks to feature. The thing is that people aren’t so eager to share their high Legend climbs when they’re done with the same decks over and over again, so we don’t have nearly as much stuff to post. At the same time – I don’t think that it’s a huge problem, because you probably also don’t need to see literally the same Demon Hunter or Enrage Warrior build for the 100th time.
Luckily, we’re getting closer and closer to the expansion announcement. Historically, those were released either early or in the middle of the month before expansion. E.g. Ashes of Outland was first teased on March 12 and announced on March 16. But then again, Saviors of Uldum was announced on July 1 (I’m not counting DoD, since 3rd expansion of the year was always announced at BlizzCon). Which means that we could start seeing Blizzard dropping some teasers as early as next week, and in ~2 weeks at the very latest. I really can’t wait!
