Ya’ll need to chill out. I don’t even run Grasp of Agony or Void Pulse in any of my Abyssian decks because I’d rather have higher value cards than dump a whole bunch of 1 cost cards and auto lose when we hit six mana.
Kelaino is pretty crazy strong if they can get some damage off, and it wouldn’t be crazy to nerf it. Shadowdancer has never really been op, and is often considered inferior to something like Four Winds Magi. I still run it in some decks but it’s often just not as good as Kelaino, and both takes too much space.
Burn Magmar can blow you out when you get to half hp, but can be played around with positioning and getting their health below comfortable Elucidator range, or keeping a provoke nearby.
TBH it just sounds like you guys don’t play threats. If you aren’t playing threats, you aren’t effecting the board, and you’re just waiting for them to kill you.
The best way to play around Grasp is to spread your minions out. Play around Void Pulse by punishing their lack of cards and pressuring them.
I don’t wanna say you guys complain to much but the meta’s far, far more balanced than it sounds been in the past, and far more fun to play as well. Variax doesn’t even see much competitive play anymore, and I beat Magmar 9/10 times, they don’t see that strong.
