Reckless Experimenter is not staying the same

After the announcement of the Rise of the Mech update, we became aware of an interaction between SN1P-SN4P and Reckless Experimenter that allows for an early-game infinite damage combo in Priest. As a result of this, we’ve opted to make a change to Reckless Experimenter to go along with the 14.4 patch (scheduled to release June 3) so this combo is no longer possible. We’re also aware of some interactions that SN1P-SN4P creates in Wild when played alongside multiple copies of Mechwarper. We’ll be keeping a close eye on how that plays out over the following weeks. Here is how the card now reads (updated card asset here):

Reckless Experimenter – Deathrattle minions you play cost (3) less, but die at end of turn. (Cost can’t be reduced below 1.)  

 

Once the change to Reckless Experimenter is live, you will be able to disenchant it for its full Arcane Dust value for two weeks.

Dear TAC,

I have never enjoyed arena as much as other sealed formats from other TCGs.  Partly due to the feeling of not having a pile of cards to construct the best deck with what I pulled for that day.

Would team5 ever consider adding Bartender Bob to arena to add more player agency? Maybe after drafting your 30-cards you get Bob or after ever 2-3 matches in Arena?

One of my favorite things in Hearthstone is to tinker with decks and arena had failed to scratch the itch. Maybe Bob can be a back scratcher?

Thanks for your show, +5/+5 would listen again.
