And Hearthstone's Galakrond Shaman is already getting nerfed.

Played Hearthstone recently? Well, if you have, you may have noticed a certain overpowered card being played now. Shaman mains everywhere are rejoicing as The Galakrond Shaman deck has some incredibly powerful cards, so powerful in fact that Blizzard will address it in the next upcoming patch.

What makes this deck so powerful is the incredibly unique cards and abilities they have. For example, it’s Invoke ability allows you to summon Rush minions and attack immediately. Corrupt Elementalist is a big pick right now, letting you use Invoke twice allowing you to dish out major damage in a very short period of time.

Descent of Dragons only launched a few days ago, adding 135 new cards to the game, a new "Invoke" keyword, a new solo adventure called “Galakrond's Awakening” coming in January, and the official launch of the autobattler mode Hearthstone Battlegrounds which you can read about in our previous article.

It seems to me that Descent of Dragons is the most overpowered set to come along in recent years. Of course, no release goes unpatched, so it was easy to assume something would come along that was OP and needed looking at, Galakrond being the first of many.
