The next Hearthstone patch resets Battlegrounds ratings and nerfs two problem cards | PC Gamer

Hearthstone next patch has just been announced by Blizzard, and it's a juicy one. Known as version 18.4 to its friends, the update brings the start of the Masquerade Ball limited-time event, the return of Dual-Class Arena, and a new Hearthstone Book of Heroes featuring Rexxar. It also adds elementals as a new Battlegrounds minion type while simultaneously resetting everyone's Battlegrounds rank (more on that in a moment), and delivers a couple of balance updates aimed at Standard. Phew. Let's get into it.The nerfs being made are to Guardian Animals and Tortollan Pilgrim. The latter was essential to Turtle Mage, one of the most annoying Hearthstone decks of all time.As of 18.4, Tortollan Pilgrim's Battlecry will no longer Discover and play a copy of spell from your deck, instead it will consume the spell you pick. This should prevent the use of Tortollan Pilgrim to draw a copy of Potion of Illusion so you can use it to copy Tortollan Pilgrim and set up the tedious loop that was Turtle Mage's whole thing. That change should effectively kill the deck's win condition, although better brains than ours might find a way to salvage it somehow.The other nerf is to Guardian Animals, a 7-mana Druid spell that summoned two Beasts that cost five Mana or lower then gave them Rush, which has been particularly obnoxious when used in combination with Lake Thresher, Twilight Runner, and Teacher's Pet. Thanks to Druid's glut of ramp cards like Wild Growth, Innervate, Overgrowth, and Breath of Dreams, hitting seven Mana is a piece of cake. Blizzard presumably either had a choice between changing multiple ramp cards or hitting Guardian Animals, and opted for the simpler option. Whether a single point of Mana will be enough to defang the deck remains to be seen, but small cost changes can often have a major effect because they push power spikes back by a whole turn.Both Guardian Animals and Tortollan Pilgrim will be eligible for full dust refunds for two weeks after the patch goes live.
