Earthquake was already seen as one of the most OP cards in the game. It deserved a cost increase even before the Explosion nerf.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Two roundabout "nerfs" to Fire in a row, eh?  First the Fire Bolt backhanded "nerf" which didn't actually do anything, and now this, which will hurt decks that splash Fire far more than any primary Fire deck.  If it was Zanz's intention to counter the prevalence of Fire decks in Arena and PvP, he has failed.

Zanz has taken a big step in the right direction. I think Firestall is still a little OP unupgraded, but Fire no longer has the best rush as well because of the Immo and Phoenix nerf.
Somehow still around, somewhat

The arena rankings (especially gold and platinum) say otherwise.

I was commenting only on Deflagration and Fire Bolt "nerfs," did not see the nerfs to Ash and Immolation, which are more serious.  I'd like to see Lava Golem get something similar, though time will tell if that's actually necessary.

the ash nerf should be negligible when it comes to the arena decks.  The immolation nerf is more serious, but I doubt you can attribute the significant decline of the number of fire decks just to that.  In any case, the fact is that the number of fire decks has decreased, and since we can't really isolate the exact cause, I don't see how zanz has failed.

From my personal experience, the 3 cost for deflagration has definitely slowed down some of the silver league fire decks.

with the addition of shards in the new meta, explosions seems not that powerful edi. Shard of focus has become a very powerful source of pc and it can be used by all elements. I play a monofire with esplosions but I still find it troublesome to fight mono aether which can chain dim shields. but i add 2 shard of foocus and my win rate increase tremendously.
