You might think that there’s nothing to be excited about in Hearthstone after the recently implemented buffs. However, Blizzard managed to surprise the community by moving two cards to Hall of Fame while adding ten classic and basic cards to the game. That’s right, there’s no mistake here. It’s the middle of the year – and two cards are indeed leaving the competitive mode. Let’s take a look at the changes.
Vanish and Mind Blast
Both these cards are being exiled to the Wild format. Vanish belongs to Rogue while Mind Blast is the Priest’s spell. We are not quite sure why the team decided to get rid of these particular cards, but over on the official blog, Blizzard explained that the main idea behind the decision is to address balance issues. There’s an expansion coming where both these cards could’ve given an unfair advantage, and such situations occurred before.
Let’s move on to the most interesting part – new cards directly from the classic deck.
A Warlock’s card. It’s a demon with 5/8, a Taunt, and an effect “Your other Demons have +1 attack.”
A Paladin’s spell with an effect “Give your minions Divine shield.”

Blizzard didn’t specify the exact date when the aforementioned cards will make their way to the game, and the developers did mention that the changes are expected to be implemented with the nearest big patch. It won’t be too long until we get a new meta in Hearthstone.
