Wild Growth going presents Blizzard with a problem of what to do if they want to HoF a basic card.

Do they just leave it meaning new players just lose out on class cards in Standard?

Do they promote something from Classic to Basic, give a dust refund to everyone and free golden copies if they're level 50+?

Or do they make something New?

Honestly I don't think it needs to be touched at all. Losing Blossom, Keeper and Fandral/Nourish will leave Druid hurting for ramp to the point where Greedy Sprite probably sees play.

WTF???? First innervate...ok that was pretty bad. NOW...the most fundemental card to the archtype of druid??? MANA ADVANTAGE? So what are they turning druid into? A pseudo-warrior class. This is dumb if it ends up being true. Really really hope it is not.

Then again they will probably make sure that their is a unique variant of the exact same card with some alterations in future expansions.

Come on!!! This card is so fundemental to Druid play. Ben Brode can eat a brick.

Nourish is excellent without Fandral. (but even better with him obviously).

I would be shocked and surprised of wild growth is removed .. it was never opressive on its own, growth plus mire keeper and jade blossom is what led to absurd scenarios .. especially with the easy card refill of UI.

This. The combination of multiple forms of ramp and UI is the bigger problem. Yeah, I'd be surprised too.

Just means I'll go back to Mill Druid, or Jade Druid.

Maybe blizzard wants to remove Wild Growth so that they CAN print a bunch of varied ramp option cards and things like UI (though please no on the UI the power level of that card is through the roof) without causing the issues we have now in the future? I mean, I get that its a problem, hall of faming a basic card instead of a classic, but you can't deny that Wild Growth has been used in just about every single druid meta deck since the beginning of Hearthstone, and by your own words it's Wild Growth *in combination* with Mire Keeper, Jade Blossom and Ultimate Infestation that is causing the ramp problems we're having now. Mire Keeper, Jade Blossom and UI will all rotate out sooner or later, but Wild Growth is for keeps, and as long as it's around Blizzard could make the same mistake with implementing all the ramp and blowing Druid out of proportion all over again.

I'm not saying HoFing Wild Growth is the *correct* answer, but I can certainly see why Blizzard would consider doing it.
