After much discussion among the community asking for a nerf, Blizzard has announced a nerf to Undertaker! Blizzard tries to avoid making changes to cards and instead change the meta with new card additions, but sometimes the balance of cards is found to need some adjusting. There's no word yet on when this change will be going live.

As with other card changes you will be able to disenchant your copies of the card for their full dust cost for a limited time. Since cards from the Naxxramas card set are awarded by defeating the different wings of the adventure the base card cannot be
disenchanted, but golden versions that had to be crafted
with dust will be disenchantable for their full dust cost.

After the release of Goblins vs Gnomes, we kept an eye on the state of game balance as more matches were played with the new cards we introduced to Hearthstone. After careful consideration we have decided to make a balance change to the card Undertaker.

The following balance change will be made in an upcoming patch:

    Undertaker now reads: Whenever you summon a minion with Deathrattle, gain +1 Attack.

  • Undertaker was frustrating to play against. It often gained both Attack and Health stats significantly above those of other inexpensive minions very early in the game. With this change, we expect Undertaker will still be better than other 1-Mana minions when played in a deck with a Deathrattle theme, but more likely to die in combat against other minions.

The golden version of Undertaker can be disenchanted for its full cost for a limited time once this balance change goes live.

We will continue to make balance changes to Hearthstone when we feel they are necessary in order to increase the variety of cards seen at all levels of play, with the goal of making Hearthstone a more fun and interactive game for everyone.

Hearthstone build 7628

A new patch has hit the Hearthstone servers, though it isn't downloading for users yet. This patch includes the Undertaker change making his ability only increase Attack and not Health, the new Maraad card back, a new sound file for when Archmage Antonidas's ability triggers (you can play it on his card page!), and new client strings indicating the addition of a Lunar New Year event!
