I don't really call for a nerf to either class, but you can replace the words "Miracle Rogues" with "Hunters", and "Auctioneers" with "UTH" and your exact same sentence applied to Hunters. favoring one change but not the other shows one hell of a bias.
People complained about Hunters for over a month with no real stats or evidence to back it up besides "they are everywhere" and "Kolento is using Hunter". Those calling for Miracle Rogue nerf have this little stat: The top 6 legend players ALL mained a Miracle Rogue, as well as 11 of the top 17 legends players, at the end of the season: http://www.liquidhearth.com/forum/hearthstone/2353-americas-season-1-final-rankings-and-what-they-played
It isn't always that cut and dry.
I don't play Miracle Rogue. I find it a frustrating as hell deck to play. Likewise, those who do play it deserve the strong combos. That's what the fricking rogue class is all about.
What do you want this to be? Rampdruidstone? Zoostone?
We ALL called for the nerf to UTH because it was TOO VALUABLE FOR THE COST.
Gadgetzan costs FIVE. It's already at the NERFED status of the new UTH, which is STILL strong, but IS balanced.
Everyone acts like UTH disappeared, but it just got put into a slightly more reasonable tempo spot.
Gadgetzan is ALREADY in a balanced tempo spot at FIVE mana, needing to be played on turn 5 WITH the coin and conceal to be useful ON turn five.
They also mained miracle rogue because they counter midrange hunter and zoo as well as being able to beat ramp druid reasonably well (the two meta decks and the one counter meta deck). Hunter couldn't be quite as viable anymore simply because all the decks were designed to counter them.
I believe that the meta is now going to be in the healthiest state it's seen because now people will be able to start making new decks that counter miracle rogue that would have been vulnerable to hunter.
