Three Hearthstone Cards to Receive Balance Tuning in October 18th Update

A trio of cards from the latest Hearthstone expansion, The Boomsday Project, will be receiving a balance pass when the game's next update launches on Thursday, October 18th. The Giggling Inventor, Aviana and Mana Wyrm will each feature increased Mana cost in order to use them. 

  • At (7) mana, we expect Giggling Inventor will find its way into fewer decks in general—and be much less effective in Quest Rogue—while it might remain situationally playable within specific deck archetypes, such as Evolve Shaman.
  • At (2) mana, it will be easier to deal with Mana Wyrm the turn it’s played, and it will be harder to buff it with cheap spells early in the match. 
  • Changing Aviana to (10) mana means it will no longer be possible to play Aviana and Kun the Forgotten King on the same turn without some additional help from cards like Innervate or The Coin.
