Several of the cards in Hearthstone are going to get tweaked as the 17.6 Balance Update that was announced yesterday will go live on July 14. All the cards that are tweaked can be fully refundable for two weeks. You will receive all the resources you spent to craft the impacted cards. The developers at Blizzard also released the patch notes for the update.

From now on, two random dragon cards that you choose when there are no duplicates in your deck will now cost you one point. Previously, they were free to use. Kayn Sunfury has been nerfed, and Kayn's health has been reduced to four. Costs of Warglaives of Azzinoth, Dragoncaster, and Fungal Fortunes have been increased by one point each.

Several other changes have been made, you can read about them below or on the official site.
