from Sebastian Glanzer
With the latest update, Hearthstone developers have fixed a number of bugs and spiced up Battlefield mode again. In addition to two new servants, Patch 18.0 implements Kel'Thuzad's pussycat for the battlefield.

Patch 18.0 from Hearthstone is live and in addition to some bug fixes, a new hero has been added to the battlefield. In keeping with the upcoming release of the new Akademie Scholomance expansion, this is none other than Kel'Thuzad's loyal companion – Mr. Bigglesworth! This has the unique ability to steal an opponent's servant and all buffs if the opponent dies. More changes and new and removed minions for battlefield mode can be found in the gallery below.
