Balance Update – Divine Order Dec 13

The Divine Order balancing phase is in full swing. During this time, these cards can be altered before having their utility locked off for good!

Hey mortals, IMBryn here with another balance patch. As we focus on getting Divine Order balance towards a state that’s ready for balance lock, we’ve taken a look at some designs that might not seem so powerful now, but would have prevented us from printing a few interesting cards in the future. 

Armor in amounts above 1 has proven to be a problematic mechanic, so we’re starting off the holiday cheer with another tweak to Guild Enforcer. Some largely unused cards have also had their mana costs reduced – get out there and try them over the holiday break! 

Lastly, we have fixed some card bugs that were preventing these specific cards from being usable, so try them out too.
