One card, Switcheroo, is now banned in the Wild format. Switcheroo is a three-mana card that says, “Draw 2 minions. Swap their Health.” The Wild format is a constructed format where cards outside of Standard are legal. This is the only banning for Hearthstone Patch 23.0.3.

There are a handful of currently known bug fixes for Hearthstone Patch 23.0.3. Blizzard will often update the notes hours after the patch goes live. They include fixing a bug within the user interface for Bob’s Bazaar in Tombs of Terror. This bug prevented players from progressing. In addition, Unstable Evolution’s text is updated to represent the “Echo” keyword. Players will not be able to properly receive Lokholar with their few new/returning player deck selections. Finally, cards such as Electra Stormsurge and Twinbow Terrorcoil will now only work on spells cast from your hand.

The full patch notes are available below.
