Hearthstone Balance Changes for 9/22

Official Forum Sticky thread

- Leeroy Jenkins cost up from 4 to 5.
- Starving Buzzard cost up from 2 to 5 and has 3 Attack 2 Health (previously 2 Attack and 1 Health)

I think the change to Leeroy is reasonable and he will still find use in decks but the changes to Buzzard is too extreme. Ignoring the card-draw ability, the attack/health stats simply do not justify the casting cost that it most probably will not find a place in Hunter decks anymore. On the other hand, you can still combo Unleash the Hounds with Scavenging Hyena at turn 5 and get a huge beast; something to look out for against hunter if you think you are safe from flooding the board after the changes...
