Hearthstone “Patron Warrior” deck to receive well deserved nerf

For months now the Patron Warrior deck has been giving Hearthstone players a hard time, but that reign of terror may finally be coming to an end in the next Hearthstone balance patch.

The Patron Warrior deck revolves around a particular combo of cards, namely the Warsong Commander (Gives minions with less than 3 attack Charge) and Grim Patron (Summons a copy of itself when it survives damage). This combo would let players perform a “One Turn Kill” on their opponent, which isn’t a whole lot of fun to play against.

Finally Blizzard has decided that is enough and are now forcing the Warsong Commander to sing a different tune. Instead of granting Charge, the card will now buff minions who already have Charge instead. That sounds much nicer.
