The Hearthstone: Descent of Dragons has given us a ranked meta with one of the more diverse arrays of competitive ladder decks than we’ve seen in some time, but some decks are still more oppressive than others — namely, Galakrond decks. Luckily, Team 5 has recognized this and plans to adjust aspects of Galakrond decks with the next balance patch.
Per Senior Game Designer August Dean Ayala’s Twitter:
Planning another balance patch. Will share some more information next week as we solidify. Some of the Galakrond decks are just a touch more powerful than they need to be to be successful. Also contemplating light changes to non-Galakrond archetypes like Pirate War and DR Rogue. pic.twitter.com/UghiQzFwEw

As of this writing, HSReplay lists Galakrond decks as the top four in the game (Galakrond Zoo Warlock, Galakrond Warrior, Galakrond Deathrattle Rogue, Galakrond Shaman). Do you think Galakrond decks are too powerful in the current meta? Will the upcoming nerfs remedy the problem? Let us know in the comments.
