Hearthstone Balance Change Plans

Battle.net forums have details from Blizzard on plans for balance changes coming to Hearthstone, their virtual card-based strategy game (thanks Shacknews). They explain they've been tracking the rise and fall in popularity of various deck builds, but that the dominance of Hunter decks has emerged as a consistent imbalance that they have decided to address. Explaining they take such changes seriously, they announce that they've concluded that the cost of unleashing the Hounds will go from two to three mana. Here's word:

At the very highest levels of play there are a lot of different decks performing well, and the decks at the top change from week to week. Since we’ve seen many cards and deck types in the current state of the game rise and fall as players adapt, we did not want to change Unleash the Hounds immediately. However, Hunter decks have become increasingly more dominant and are doing better than we are comfortable across many levels of play.

We do like the idea of decks that have a really big turn and pull off a sweet combo, but when playing against Hunter decks, you may feel punished too much for playing minions. Playing minions is one of the key, fun pieces of the overall Hearthstone puzzle, and feeling like your options are limited by the opponent creates a play experience that may not be particularly enjoyable.
