Shudderwock’s Battlecry will also cap at 20 Battlecries.

As expected, Shudderwock and Lifedrinker had their Battlecry animation speed increased, while the former will now reproduce up to a maximum of 20 Battlecries. The appearance rate of cards in Arena has been adjusted to offer better class balance.
