Hearthstone is altering minion types for lore and deck consistency

Minion types in Hearthstone don’t always matter, until they matter a whole lot. That’s the motivation behind the new minion types being added to existing cards, which already look and are named as if they do have these types. Mountain Giant and Molten Giant, for example, are clearly elemental creatures… but at this point, they lack the Elemental minion type, which will be changed with the next patch. New options for decks focused on Elementals, and a more logical layout!

Other changes include making the North Sea Kraken into a Beast, the Witchwood Piper into a Demon, and the Jungle Moonkin into… not a Beast. (The other Moonkin in the game was not a Beast, and lore-wise they really shouldn’t be Beasts.) This likely won’t wildly change the game’s meta, but it should add new options for some decks and generally make things feel a wee bit more consistent.

That tubby big-ass Dino model is pretty damn cool scarier, wish they were like that in game TBH.
