Hearthstone Cards

Hearthstone players understand what Arena mode is all about. Arena mode is all about constructing card decks from random card, however, the most powerful and popular cards keep popping up again and again. Now Blizzard Entertainment is planning to ban some of the most popular Hearthstone cards from the arena mode.

Blizzard has announced that more than 40 popular Hearthstone cards will be banned from the Arena drafting pool in an upcoming patch. This move is part of the effort to balance the game modes, as some heroes in particular modes dominate.

All heroes except for Paladin will see some of the cards from their collections will be removed from the drafting pools. Apparently some of the strangest heroes will see their strangest or sharpest tools removed from their collections, and some of the weaker ones will see some of the weakest cards removed. This will increase the chances of a weaker hero for a powerful card pick.
