Hardcore Gamer: A few weeks ago Hearthstone had a problem. With the release of new cards in curse of Naxxramas, the Hunter class had gone from being ignored by most players to making up 70% of the ranked ladder. Mad Scientist made the class’s powerful secrets viable, Haunted Creeper’s beast tag gave the powerful card amazing synergy with key Hunter cards, and Loatheb helped the once-fragile rush deck to stabilize its board presence. To make matters worse, many of the only cards that could counter these strengths were hunter-exclusive. The deck was inarguably overpowered and in need of a nerf, but Blizzard may have taken things too far with their response.
