"‘Cat Burglar’ also gets a huge power boon with ‘Hero’ added to its target set, this is a huge change and we do expect the feel of Armello’s meta to change – As a history lesson, in the early prototype days of Armello, ‘Cat Burglar’ was one of the most powerful cards in the game and a real power shifter, the recent target change actually brings ‘Cat Burglar’ back to where it started and where we feel it should be." Check the full list of changes here.
